Tonight’s Chicago Med season 6 finale is the last episode for two series regulars, but there might be some people following them out the door.

“I Will Come To Save You” is the goodbye installment for both Torrey DeVitto and Yaya DaCosta; the actresses chose not to return for season 7, so their characters Dr. Natalie Manning and April Sexton will be written out.

In April’s case, it’s pretty easy to guess how; she missed her interview for a spot in Chicago Med’s nurse practicioner program during last week’s episode, so she’ll have to move to another hospital to further her career.

Natalie’s story is a whole lot more messy, because it involves other characters.

Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) is about to take the fall for Natalie’s drug theft; he’s once again gone above and beyond for Natalie, even though they’re not even a couple anymore. Natalie, presumably, will have to speak up so that Will can keep his job.

But will Chicago Med give the audience some kind of final Manstead moment? And what about her current relationship with Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains)? The show just had them say they love each other a short while ago, and now it also has to bring closure to that relationship. (Poor Crockett; the two characters he interacts with most are both leaving!)

There’s a third storyline in the Chicago Med season 6 finale, in which Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) is held responsible for his old friend’s actions. Choi is shot by the patient whom Dr. Dean Archer (Steven Weber) drugged earlier this season. Since the identity of the shooter is obvious, the “why” should be equally obvious, and that will lead directly to Archer’s earlier misdeeds.

If he’s not fired by the end of the episode, he should do the right thing and resign since his bravado resulted in his friend being shot. And while Archer deserves it, can we take a moment to talk about how sad it’ll be that Steven Weber isn’t on the show? His character may be difficult, but he’s been a great addition to the cast just in terms of watching him work every week.

There’s going to be a lot of turnover at the hospital in the next hour, so let the speculation about what season 7 will look like begin!
