Code Black Sneak Peek: Shiri Appleby Checks In as Malaya's Ex-Girlfriend

In a strange bit of typecasting, Shiri Appleby guest-stars on Wednesday’s Code Black (CBS, 10/9c) as Malaya’s pregnant ex. (You’ll recall that the UnREAL star also appeared on Season 1 of Chicago Fire as Leslie Shay’s former girlfriend, who was expecting with her new beau.)

“People keep writing me as pregnant lesbians,” Appleby told TVLine at the Creative Arts Emmys in September.

In TVLine’s exclusive video from Code Black, Appleby’s Carla Niven, a doctor herself, arrives at Angels Memorial Hospital “because I have something wrong happening with me. It’s not that different” from her Chicago Fire stint, the actress explained with a laugh.

But will Malaya be willing to help Carla, given that their relationship didn’t end on the best of terms? Press PLAY above to watch the sneak peek, then hit the comments with your thoughts on Appleby’s guest spot.
