Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) makes preparations for her pregnancy and Nurse April Sexton's (Yaya DaCosta) brother (guest star Roland Buck III) struggles through his first day at the hospital.

Executive producer Matt Olmstead discussed what to expect in the three-show crossover event. Olmstead told Entertainment Weekly, "We're starting with Fire in the 9 p.m. hour on Tuesday, switching with Med. They respond to a fire where a woman looks like she may have been trying to commit suicide. We're not quite sure. When we take her to Med, her levels are all off. It's a medical mystery, which throws us into the Medhour."
The producer dished on the special episode's plot and explained, "It kicks off into a much larger medical story based on a headline late last year, where a doctor was misdiagnosing and over-prescribing cancer medicine, chemo in particular. While figuring out what happened, more women come forward as we start to peel back layers of how deep this goes. Ultimately, it's thrown to P.D., because it's a criminal investigation, a very hard one to prove because the burden is there was an intent to have these people killed."
The episode will feature a big revelation for Chicago P.D.'s Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), Olmstead said, "Through that is the revelation for Voight that his late wife, who we've established on the show passed away from cancer, the last doctor she ever sought treatment from is the guy who's in their crosshairs. So, it's Voight basically investigating and wanting to have answers in terms of not only the current victims they're encountering, but his late wife as well."
