The One Chicago shows deal with life and death every day, and sometimes, it hits too close to home.

All three shows — Chicago FireChicago P.D., and Chicago Med — have lost characters, and some have been more heartbreaking than others. The latest finales weren't deadly as past ones have been, but they did have us concerned for a couple characters.

Some of these 'Fire,' 'Med,' and 'P.D.' characters already have reasons to show up on other shows.

Firehouse 51 suffered another injury on the job — though fortunately, Capp (Randy Flagler), was clear to return to duty soon by the end — and Intelligence's Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) just made enemies with some powerful people in the CPD and Mayor's office. (But he was right to tell the truth about a cop's racial profiling causing his own and an innocent man's deaths.)
