Chicago Med always delivers the goods when it comes to season finales. The medical drama has enacted lots of changes this year, both in terms of the cast and the ownership of the hospital the cast works at, and now we’re getting word that things are going to be heating up further in the final episode of season 8.
Steven Weber, who plays Dr. Archer and was recently promoted to main cast member, shed some light on the finale, and what fans should expect from both his character and the rest of the team.
What happened to Archer on Chicago Med?
Weber, a TV veteran best known for his starring role on Wings, told NBC Insider that fans will be getting varying developments to different story threads.
"“I wouldn’t say [these storylines] necessarily conclude, but they come to quite a moving and interesting climax…” he explained. “One that makes thematic sense and dramatic sense. And the finale will not disappoint.”"
It’s safe to assume that one of these storylines will involve his character, who has been struggling with his health and is desperately in need of a kidney transplant. The lingering sense of mortality the character has been feeling has also led to him getting close with Dr. Asher (Jessy Schram) and rekindling his relationship with his son, Sean (Luigi Sottile).

While there’s been continued speculation that Archer will strike up a romance with Asher, there’s also been some flirtation between her and Archer’s son. It’s unclear where things will go between these three people, but Weber assures the fans that they will be “surprised.”
"“[The finale] will surprise audiences who think they know what’s going to happen,” the actor added. “They don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s going to be really good, really cool.”"
The teaser for the finale promises that “someone will go”, and then cuts to Archer getting woozy and falling over. Here’s hoping we don’t lose Gaffney’s resident grump too soon.
