Chicago Med’s jam-packed season 8 premiere featured not one but two cast exits. 

One was Lockard, who joined the show in season 7. His Dylan Scott character is a former cop who switched gears to become a physician. But he found it hard to shake his past as a police officer. Last season, he got involved with undercover cop Jo (Riley Voelkel). Her death in the season 8 opener left Dylan devastated and ultimately led him to leave Gaffney Chicago Medical Center for good. 

In addition to Lockard’s departure, the season 8 premiere also confirmed Sarah Rafferty’s exit as Dr. Pamela Black. Her character had major surgery at the end of season 7, and she’s unable to return to work as a result. She made a brief appearance in “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses” but won’t appear in future episodes.

Lockard’s time on Chicago Med is over. But that doesn’t mean that fans have necessarily seen the last of his Dr. Scott.
