The episode sees Connor depart Med. Series showrunners Andy Schneider and Diane Frolov said the scene in which Dr. Bekker takes her own life was the "ultimate revenge against the man that had rejected her." Her death pushes Connor to leave Med. Schneider and Frolov confirmed; the season premiere begins several ongoing storylines for the show's regulars. Dr. Natalie Manning will be dealing with a traumatic brain injury she sustained in the season 4 finale. A time gap occurs between the first and second episodes, in which Natalie recovers and returns to work. Schneider and Frolov said the injury would prompt questions about Natalie's ability to do her job well, they confirmed that Natalie's memory will return and the audience will find out what she was planning on telling Will before the crash. Following a pregnancy scare for Dr. Choi and Nurse April Sexton in the first episode, the idea of having a child is "definitely part of their storyline." Meanwhile, Maggie Lockwood is diagnosed with breast cancer and her treatment is a long-running storyline, which showcases new technology available to cancer patients.

Frolov commented, "We hope women will see Maggie and relate to her when she goes through the biopsy. Maybe they'll see her go through it and realize it's not as terrible as you'd imagine in your head — it's painless. That's what we were hopeful for, that seeing someone go through it will help reduce fear."Dominic Rains joined the cast in the recurring role of Dr. Crockett Marcel, "a hard-partying doctor from Louisiana", he made his first appearance in the season premiere. In early September 2019, Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas confirmed an upcoming crossover event between Fire, Chicago Med and Chicago P. D.. Haas and producer Dick Wolf came up with the story, Haas will write all three episodes, marking the first time he has written for Med since the spin-off episode "I Am the Apocalypse". Haas explained that the shows would be "intertwined" and there will be scenes that will make viewers think they are watching "a Med scene, but it's in the Fire hour." The plot revolves around "a mysterious illness", with Haas comparing it to The Poseidon Adventure or Independence Day, saying "where you've got a bunch of stories – cutting to one, cutting to another – and there's a mystery, both medical and criminal, going on that we’re trying to solve before it gets out of hand."

The crossover begins in Fire's fourth episode, before leading into Med and P. D. on the same day. Official website Chicago Med on IMDb

Lone Star Toys

Lone Star Products Ltd. was the brand name used by the British company Die Cast Machine Tools Ltd for its toy products. DCMT was based in Welham Green, north of London. Starting as early as 1939, DCMT manufactured die cast toys for children. The'Lone Star' name was chosen because of a demand at the time for toy guns and rifles popular in the Western films in cinemas all over Britain; the company made tie-in toy guns licensed from the James Bond films and The Man From U. N. C. L. E. TV series. Production may have begun as early as 1939, continuing to 1947 in'The Bridge Garage', Green Lanes, Palmers Green, London, N.13. From 1941 - 1942 temporary additional premises were opened on Pembroke Road, Muswell Hill, London, N.10. From 1947 - 1956 the'River Works', 152 Green Lanes, Palmers Green, London, N.13, were in operation. In 1956, a milestone occurred with the move to a purpose-built factory of 37,000 sq. ft. at 168 Great North Road, Hertfordshire. In 1958, another factory was acquired at Ambridge, Gower & Mills, Holloways Lane, Welham Green, Hertfordshire.

This became the main manufacturing facility through the 1960s. Early products included; these were military, with some cowboy and Native American examples. From 1955 to 1976 figures were made in plastic and included British Guards, Royal Marines and Red Beret Paratroopers, American Civil War, Robin Hood, safari. World War II soldiers included German and British as well as ANZAC figures which were painted as the King's African Rifles; the sets were accompanied by die cast military vehicles. Figures were licensed from other children's TV and film series and included Noddy and Zorro as well as James Bond 007 Thunderball frogmen with CIA figures in orange and SPECTRE in black with plastic underwater vehicles. Interpreting the base of a Lone Star vehicle can be difficult; some of Impy Toys read: "Lone Star Road-Master Impy Super Cars". To add to the confusion, elsewhere on the base it would say DCMT. Other 1:50 scale vehicles chassis read, "Lone Star Made in England". To keep up with competitors such as Corgi and Dinky, Lone Star began producing Corgi-sized diecast toy vehicles in 1956 with its Road-Master series.

Castings on the earlier vehicles, though handsome, were a bit cruder than the competition. For example, the double-deck bus had its casting line, for its two halves, right down the centre of the roof. Most earlier Lone Stars have simpler bumper and body detail than Corgi or Dinky; the Impy series, outdid Matchbox by a long shot. Earlier 1960s models had orange tinted plastic transparent windows, but no interior detail. Head and tail lights were emphasised with red paint. Tyres started as rubber later in the mid-1960s, switched to hard ribbed black plastic which were advertised as "non-scratch"; this was supposed to appeal to parents who were afraid junior would mar the furniture with the toys. Wheels were simple aluminium with regular'squeaky' axle hubs. Lone Star moved quickly in an expanding ranges including the exceptional OO scale vehicles, the "Lone Star Impy" vehicles, which were uniformly about three and a half inches long, thus like Matchbox, vehicle sizes seemed to adhere more to a particular size than to a particular scale.

Series of aeroplanes and military vehicles were offered. In the late 1950s, many DCMT toys were licensed to the French company Jadali; these were made both in Paris and later, near Barcelona, Spain. The Spanish toys were called Jadali-Metamol. Most of these toys were diecast cowboy pistols and spaceman ray guns - DCMT vehicle tooling does not seem to have been made available to Jadali. Much changed with the introduction of the Impy line in 1966. Bright new packaging was introduced while the older, Road-Master series was discontinued; the new cars were a smaller three and a half inch size, similar to Mini-Dinkys, were advertised as the "cars with everything". For example, the 1963 Chrysler Imperial was not offered by any other diecast maker and featured opening doors, trunk, working steering and jewelled headlights; the Impy Jaguar Mark X outshone the spartan Matchbox version with four jewelled headlights and opening'everything'. Having so many features on a smaller diecast car could be unsightly, however, as cut door lines broke the smooth sides of the car on the Imperial, other vehicles.

On the FIAT 2300S Ghia coupe the cast line was rough and uneven from fender through door to fender again. It is interesting that Lone Star was the first toy producer to respond to Hot Wheels' hit of low-friction wheels. In 1968, less than a year after the introduction of Hot Wheels, Impys were refitted with sporty fast wheels which Lone Star now called its "Flyer" series; the first Flyers' wheels were simple shiny silver wheels with black hubs, rather reminiscent of Corgi's first low-friction gold wheels with red hubs. Cars were given a handsome five-spoke wheel. By contrast, Topper's Johnny Lightning and Aurora's Cigarbox cars did not change wheel styles until about 1969, nearly two years after Mattel's premier. Similar to Majorette and others, Lone Star offered gift sets of cars with trailers into the early 1980s, like the Range Rover pulling a zodiac-style inflatable boat. Earlier Lone Star packaging was coloured similar to Corgi and Di

Temax Municipality

Temax Municipality is one of the 106 municipalities in the Mexican state of Yucatán containing 329.52 square kilometres of land and located 80 kilometres northeast of the city of Mérida. It is unknown. After the conquest the area became part of the encomienda system; the encomienda was established for the minor children of Juan de Sosa in 1549. In 1579 it passed to Juan de Sosa Velázquez and in 1607 three-quarters passed to Bernardo de Sosa Velázquez and one-quarter passed to Pedro de Sosa. In 1639 Juan de Villa Real was the encomendero and by 1688 Ana Dorantes possessed the trust. Yucatán declared its independence from the Spanish Crown in 1821 and in 1825, the area was assigned to the coastal region with its headquarters in Izamal Municipality, it was designated as its own municipality by 1922. Temax, though now a sleepy town, in the recent past its history had witnessed a disturbed and fascinating period on account of momentous caste wars during the middle of the nineteenth century. Situated as it is between the henequen area and the poorly inhabited inland region and the "settled plantations society" there were rebellions to stop land encroachments by the plantation community.

In this context, Temax played a central role in creating an environment of insurgency led by Pedro Crespo, their powerful and aggressive political leader. The state authorities of Yucatán played a diplomatic role in recognizing the influence of Crespo and brokered peace with him by delegating autonomous power to Temax; the municipal president is elected for a three-year term. The town council has seven councilpersons, who serve as Secretary and councilors of public services, public safety, nomenclature and roads; the Municipal Council administers the business of the municipality. It is responsible for budgeting and expenditures and producing all required reports for all branches of the municipal administration. Annually it determines educational standards for schools; the Police Commissioners ensure public safety. They are tasked with enforcing regulations, distributing materials and administering rulings of general compliance issued by the council; the head of the municipality is Yucatán. There are nearly 7,000 people who live in the municipality and nearly 6,000 of them live in Temax.

The other populated areas of the municipality include Chenché de las Torres, Chucmichén, Chunicapó, Hacienda Limbo, Maní, San Antonio Cámara, San Felipe, San Luis, San Ramón, Torres Peón, Yaxché. The significant populations are shown below: Every year on the last Sunday in January the town holds a celebration for the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception; the tourist attractions of Temax include several churches. The church and former convent of San Miguel Archangel was built in the seventeenth century whereas the Chapel of San José, Chapel of Santa Bárbara, Chapel of San Román and the Chapel of la Ermita were all built in the eighteenth century; the Hacienda Chenché de las Torres dates from the eighteenth century. It is within the Temax Municipality and it is one the properties that thrived during the nineteenth century when there was henequen boom to supply additional ropes. Joseph, Gilbert M..

Charles Neville, 6th Earl of Westmorland

Charles Neville, 6th Earl of Westmorland was an English nobleman and one of the leaders of the Rising of the North in 1569. He was the son of Henry Neville, 5th Earl of Westmorland and Lady Anne Manners, second daughter of Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland. In 1563, he married Jane Howard, daughter of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, Frances de Vere, Countess of Surrey, she was the sister of Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk, Henry Howard, 1st Earl of Northampton. A Catholic by upbringing, allied to the Catholic Howard family, Westmorland opposed Queen Elizabeth I's Protestant policies and, in November 1569 he joined Thomas Percy, 7th Earl of Northumberland in the Northern Rebellion against the Queen; the rebels captured Durham, held a Catholic mass. Forces loyal to the queen mustered and crushed the rebellion, which failed in its attempt to rescue Mary, Queen of Scots from prison; the two earls escaped to Scotland. Westmorland found protection and concealment for a long time at Fernyhurst Castle, Lord Kerr's house in Roxburghshire, but meanwhile the Earl's cousin, Robert Constable, was hired by Sir Ralph Sadler to endeavour to track the unfortunate nobleman, under the guise of friendship to betray him.

Constable's correspondence appears among the Sadler State papers – an infamous memorial of treachery and baseness. After Northumberland had been captured and turned over to Elizabeth in 1572, Westmorland feared a similar betrayal and left for Flanders, where he suffered the extremity of poverty, he would never see Jane Howard and their son and four daughters again. His vast inheritance was confiscated. A spy-report sent from Paris to London in August 1585 states that Charles Neville, the fugitive Earl of Westmorland, might, as part of a concerted Catholic invasion of England, land in Cumberland or Lancashire, bringing with him the son or sons of Henry Percy, 8th Earl of Northumberland. Historians are obliged to wonder which son the report means, as sources indicate that all sons were in England at the time of their father's mysterious death in 1585. In 1588, Westmorland commanded a force of 700 English fugitives in the seaports of Flanders, who with the army of 103 companies of foot and 4000 horse, making together 30,000 men under Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma.

Westmorland fled. He survived on a small pension from Philip II of Spain, dying penniless and forgotten on 16 November 1601. Archbold, William Arthur Jobson. "Neville, Charles". In Lee, Sidney.
