Depart a Remark
Spoilers forward for the March 25 episode of Chicago Hearth on NBC, known as “I am going to Cowl You.”
Chicago Hearth delivered a tragedy for none apart from Sylvie Brett in “I am going to Cowl You,” simply as Season eight was shaping as much as be among the finest and happiest for her. The rising relationship together with her start mother ended very all of a sudden and really sadly, when Julie went into untimely labor and died as a result of issues. The newborn woman survived and is wholesome, however Julie is gone, and poor Brett misplaced her start mom simply after she shaped an intense bond together with her. After this tragedy, One Chicago must make a change.
The change I am referring to is to the tendency for pregnancies to finish in tragedy. All three One Chicago sequence had already featured a tragic finish to a being pregnant, and Julie’s demise whereas giving start is simply the newest.
Now, if this had occurred just about any time in One Chicago apart from in the identical half of the 2019-2020 TV season that noticed a brutal miscarriage on Chicago P.D., I won’t really feel just like the Chicago shared universe must make an total change. Since watching P.D.‘s Burgess taking that terrible beating that resulted her heartbreaking loss is just about burned into my thoughts from again in February, Julie’s demise feels too quickly.
Burgess shedding her being pregnant after being attacked was essentially the most violent being pregnant tragedy of One Chicago thus far, however hardly the primary. April on Med suffered a miscarriage after she’d begun displaying, and has needed to put herself by IVF at the price of her personal well being to attempt to conceive a child resulting from early menopause.
On Hearth, Dawson was pregnant and fortunately wanting ahead to parenthood with Casey earlier than it was revealed the being pregnant was by no means viable, and Dawson nearly died within the means of the miscarriage. Dawson shedding her being pregnant was arguably one of the tragic arcs of One Chicago, to the purpose that I used to be paranoid about Burgess having a miscarriage as a result of she was a personality current in the identical universe.
Natalie on Med is the one main One Chicago character to have a wholesome being pregnant and kind of easy supply, however there was tragedy concerned even there. Her husband had died whereas she was pregnant, and she or he gave start as a comparatively contemporary widow.
I suppose Julie dying on Hearth was a twist on One Chicago’s being pregnant tragedies, insofar because it was the girl reasonably than the being pregnant that was misplaced. Nonetheless, if One Chicago would not need to get a popularity for doomed pregnancies for mom and/or little one, someone must undergo a wholesome being pregnant.
Apart from, the three exhibits had been simply renewed for 3 extra seasons. At the very least one of many main characters on at the least certainly one of these exhibits goes to need to begin a household and/or by chance conceive within the subsequent three seasons, proper? For one, Casey has been wanting youngsters for the reason that Hearth pilot! I do know Julie wasn’t a significant character, however Brett is, and this tragedy could have a profound influence on her. At the very least her friendship with Casey goes robust.
Chicago Hearth will come to an early finish in Season eight as a result of coronavirus halting manufacturing, however there are nonetheless some episodes left that had been completed earlier than the shutdown. Tune in to NBC on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET for brand new episodes of Hearth, in between episodes of Chicago Med at eight p.m. ET and Chicago P.D. at 10 p.m. ET.
