CHICAGO MED’s April (Yaya DaCosta) and Ethan (Brian Tee) have gone through their hardships this season—being divided by things like his family or other women—and if fans have been frustrated by their separation, they are not alone.

“The frustration this season that fans have experienced, I’ve also experienced,” DaCosta told reporters in the video below. “People are constantly like, ‘Enough. Tell me what’s happening. Why can’t they get back together? Why is Vicky here?’ And I’m like, ‘I know. I feel the same way.’ I wait with bated breath every time a new script comes through. Are they going to be able to be friends? Or are they going to try to reconcile?”

CHICAGO MED’s fourth season finds the medical crew up against a new problem: COO Gwen Garrett (Heather Headley), who has a very different vision for how the hospital should be run.

“[The tension is] always going to be there,” executive producer Andrew Schneider teased to reporters in the video below. “The interesting thing about that character is all of her arguments are legitimate arguments…we don’t just pull them out of thin air. We try to deal with the realities of running a hospital.”

For Gwen’s portrayer, “every week I get the script and go, ‘Ooh, what’s she gonna do today? Who is she going to be in trouble with today?'” Headley said with a laugh. And though there is a potential ally in her horizon, “it is an uphill battle…because you’re trying your best to run the hospital and keep it open.”
