In this article, we’re profiling Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains).
When Crockett was introduced in the Chicago Med season 5 premiere as the replacement for Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell), executive producer Diane Frolov told One Chicago Center that he was going to “disturb things a lot more” than his predecessor. And while it wasn’t all Crockett’s fault, he was certainly at the center of some of the season’s most dramatic developments.
His biggest storyline in the season was being a third wheel in the Chexton relationship, as he was impulsively attracted to April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) and she kissed him at midseason while she was uncertain about her relationship with Ethan Choi (Brian Tee). It took several episodes for that to come out, and when it did, Choi blamed Crockett—physically shoving him in one installment and then punching him during another.
But our new doctor was just as easily caught up in other people’s issues. He was kidnapped along with Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) in one episode, and then in the season finale, almost got arrested for a murder he didn’t commit.
Speaking of Natalie, the season finale saw her find out that Crockett had lost a child before he came to Chicago, and though nothing happened between them, showrunners Frolov and Andrew Schneider have stated on a few occasions that they’re working toward a Natalie and Crockett romance. So could Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) punch him next?
