Dr. Pratt and his passengers -- Dr. Chen and Elgin -- try to elude gunfire from another motorist until Pratt loses control of his sports car and crashes into the Chicago River -- trapping them underwater as rescue crews troll overhead. When recovered, all three are hospitalized with serious injuries that soon spiral downward. Elsewhere, Nurse Sam seeks to escape her returning boyfriend and hits the road to find a new life with her son Alex just as Neela makes a surprising entrance in the E.R. In addition, a somber Dr. Carter and Kem deal with their unborn son's remains, Dr. Weaver intercedes when a cop wants to perform a pelvic exam on a young woman who's hiding a stash of marijuana in a private body part -- and two new interns make an immediate impact.
