As noted above, the staff manning the wards on “Chicago Med” seems to be fair game when it comes to their lives getting put in jeopardy or at least having their bodies put into a hospital bed. As revealed in a publicity shot posted on NBC’s press information site, the physician who’s in for a bed-stay at Gaffney Med in Season 8 is obstetrician-gynecologist (and recovered heroin addict) Dr. Hannah Asher (Jessy Schram). The photo shows Asher clutching one arm anxiously, with what looks to be a serious bruise across the left side of her forehead. Another promo photo posted from the same episode shows her in a hospital corridor being supported on both sides by doctors Choi and Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss).
Although we don’t know the nature of Asher’s injury or how she sustained it, her concerned expression in both photos isn’t exactly reassuring. In addition, the caption identifies the Season 8 premiere as being titled “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses.” The episode’s storyline isn’t yet known, but the title alone sounds a bit dark.
For now, all we can do is hope for the best for Hannah as we await the Season 8 debut of “Chicago Med,” set to air on NBC, along with the season premieres of its “One Chicago” sister shows on Wednesday, September 21 (via NBC.com).
