Speaking of status quo, the episode was a pretty straightforward installment of Chicago Med

Two storylines continued to be weaved through the cases of the week: Dr. Halstead’s involvement in Vas-COM and Crockett’s mentorship of Taylor. 

Dr. Halstead found himself almost crossing a line he couldn’t come back from when he considered sabotaging Dr. Neal Archer’s equipment in order to make a case for the Vas-COM. 

Thankfully, he put the patient first and stopped himself from doing something pretty terrible.

But in this case, I feel for Halstead. Goodwin has thrown him into a pretty messy situation, and she hasn’t given him any instructions as to how to proceed. 

Dr. Neal became an unexpected obstacle when Halstead couldn’t convince him to switch over to the Vas-COM. 

Neal’s response was expected, so I don’t know why Halstead ever thought he’d be able to change his mind. 

Also, Neal isn’t someone I would want to cross in this situation as he’s proven that he won’t hesitate to cause a scene or speak his mind. 

Episode after episode, I find myself muttering “he’s the worst” on several occasions.

I don’t know how this is going to pan out, but I don’t see it ending well for Halstead. 

Halstead had a pretty interesting case involving a frat bro with a severe stomach ache who was suffering from a tear caused by an ice cube. 

A little warning for those who like to eat ice chips: watch out… one wrong move and you could end up in Halstead’s ED. 

Taylor did cross a line with Crockett when she mistook his kindness for something a little more. 

Who can blame Taylor? Crockett is charming as hell. He’s taken his position as an adviser to heart and wants to make sure that she doesn’t burn herself out. 

There’s nothing stopping this romance either, but I can see how Crockett wouldn’t want to put himself or Taylor in that position.

However, knowing Chicago Med, it’s only a matter of time before he reciprocates those feelings. 

I wish I could say that the little heart-to-heart between Taylor and Dr. Hammer was cute, but they don’t really have that relationship built up, so it was unexpected. 

I wouldn’t want her to use this against Taylor in any way. 

Hammer, Taylor, and Maggie teamed up to prove that a patient was misdiagnosed over 30 years ago and found that Ashley never had cancer in the first place. 

She’s been living with the reality that she had a malignant tumor when it was, in fact, benign. 

While it was comforting to see her finally find out the truth, it was heartbreaking to learn that she lived her whole life constantly thinking that she was going to die. 

She should be able to sue that cancer center for misdiagnosis! They stole so much from her!

The best team-up on the series continues to be between Dr. Scott and Dr. Charles. 

Neal suggested that there wasn’t a place for psychology in the ED, but time and time again, cases prove that it is so vital. 

In fact, more emphasis needs to be put on mental health.

Scott’s situation with Roland was the perfect example of how flawed the system is.

If he hadn’t arrived on the scene, the altercation with the CPD likely would’ve ended with Roland in the ground rather than seeking the proper treatment to learn that he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia!

It’s hard to believe that in this day and age, cops aren’t given resources to deal with mental health issues such as psychotic breaks.

They immediately reach for their weapon, and while sometimes, it’s necessary, in Roland’s case, he simply needed to be calmed down and treated like a human being.

Dr. Charles was eventually able to realize that Roland’s medication was hurting rather than helping him. Instead of schizophrenia, Roland had bipolar disorder, which explained the break. 

I love that the case ushered in a storyline where Scott and Charles will work alongside the CPD as resources to reform the current practices and teach de-escalation techniques. 

Simply, a better understanding of mental health could make a world of difference. 

And there’s no one better, more experienced, and kinder for the job than Dr. Charles. 

Finally —  and this is just a rogue criticism — what’s up with all these new doctors at Med stepping on toes?

There were two doctor’s that Crockett butted heads with about treatment that just felt so out of character for the series.

It’s not nearly as compelling when he gets into it with two doctors that don’t actually have a larger presence on the show. We’re obviously always going to root for Crockett!

Chicago Med Review – Interns and Doctors (8×02)

Chicago Med Review (Caught Between) The Wrecking Ball and The Butterfly Season 8 Episode 2

After eight seasons, Chicago Med hasn’t run out of creative storyline ideas, and for that, I’m thankful. 

On Chicago Med Season 8 Episode 2,  the hospital’s most stubborn doctors, Halstead and Archer, once again allowed their personal situations and opinions to cloud their judgment and impact patient care. It’s so frustrating that we keep going in circles with these two, but it did seem as though there was a resolution towards the end of the episode. Maybe this is the turning point after all?

Halstead was clinging to what could’ve been with his apartment complex rather than taking the loss as everyone advised him. I believe Hannah Asher’s exact words were that he was enjoying playing the martyr a little too much, and honestly, it’s been a while since anyone has ever been that blunt with him. The truth is, Halstead was simply in denial, but his case of the week, involving a young boy named Henry and his mother, seemed to help him change his mind. 

Unlike Jenny, who turned into a butterfly just like Henry’s chrysalis after she was properly diagnosed with a tumor that was causing her a psychotic break, Halstead’s building did not have a happy ending in sight. It wasn’t an easy fix, and so he needed to be just as brave as Henry and do the right thing—allow the city to drive a wrecking ball right through it. It definitely seems like the series is against giving Halstead any sliver of happiness, but sometimes, I’m fine with it considering he’s so arrogant when it comes to his patients. 

Instead of trying to find a solution to help Jenny the way that Hannah and Dr. Charles did, he immediately wrote her off as insane and kept pressuring Charles to get a court order so he could treat the boy. Yes, Henry’s broken arm needed to be tended to, but without knowing Jenny’s condition, it seemed premature to loop in DCFS. Once they are called, it’s difficult to walk that back. And Henry seemed to truly care about his mother while believing that she would get better in time. 

I’m glad that Hannah didn’t give up even when it seemed as though they exhausted all of their options. She knows just how necessary a proper diagnosis is. And if they had given up, it would’ve torn a family apart and never given Jenny a shot at redemption. 

Similarly, Archer couldn’t compartmentalize his personal feelings when treating Al, a patient he diagnosed with MS a few years ago. Al was adamant about not getting intubated as his biggest fear was living out the rest of his life on the vent. When assured him that he was fine with dying, Arche was triggered. Having just met with his son who was content with staying in prison, Al’s acceptance sounded like he was just giving up. He chose to fight for Al since his son didn’t allow him to fight for him, and when Choi attempted to sway Archer to honor Al’s wishes, he pushed him aside. The ego is so powerful with this one. Whereas Will passes judgment on patients, Archer is stubborn and wants to override their decisions because he knows better or can’t accept the outcome that they already have. Pushing Al to go under sedation sealed his fate with the incubator. It’s an unfortunate turn of events, but at the very least, it helped Archer recognize a core issue within himself so that he could mend his relationship with his son. 

Archer was also pretty rude to the new intern, Zach, and while I understand everyone’s frustration with the younger generation that’s just learning the ropes, if they don’t help them out and teach it to them, who will? 

It was sweet of Choi to extend his help to Zach, who was only behind because of COVID. Since the pandemic, everything was online, which meant he didn’t have a chance to practice medicine in person, which isn’t ideal. Instead of writing him off for his lack of experience, Choi was determined to help Zach excel. We need more people like Choi in this world!

Of course, not all interns are created equal, and Kai came in with an attitude that didn’t sit right with anyone. Who is this man thinking he can get away with talking to Crockett like that? Crockett is one of Med’s best doctors, and Kai would do wise by shutting his mouth and learning a thing or two. I don’t even know how Kai was able to take their patient to get an angio—did he override Crockett?

Kai’s presence is a shake-up for Med as we’ve never had someone with his gusto for being better and right than the tenured staff, and it’s going to be fun to see how he works alongside Crockett now that he’s filed a complaint with HR. Also, HR, really? Oh boy. The man is truly too full of himself. It’s ballsy for a guy who almost killed a patient with his poor decision. Crockett could’ve filed a countercomplaint, but that would be too easy. Instead, he’s going to make sure that Kai learns his lesson and becomes the kind of person that plays nice with others. 

And then there was Maggie’s whole dilemma with Grant. Grant is obviously interested in forming some kind of relationship with her, but she’s also being a little too intense. She’s projecting all her feelings and worries onto the situation instead of just letting it unfold. What if Grant isn’t interested in her? What if he just wants to get to know Vanessa and experience it with Maggie? By not telling Ben the truth about Grant for over a month, Maggie made it worse than it was. Ben wasn’t even phased when she initially told him, but when she started explaining herself, it became obvious that Grant’s presence is bringing up some old feelings, which didn’t sit well with Ben. Maggie would’ve been better off just introducing the two gentlemen to each other and having a big family lunch.

There was a lot of personal growth for each of the characters that was brought to light through the patients they treated making this a highly compelling installment.

Chicago Med Season 8 Premiere Review – [SPOILER] Dies After the Fire

Published

on

Chicago Med ow Do You Begin to Count the Losses Season 8 Episode 1

The Chicago Med Season 8 premiere didn’t skip a beat, picking up right in the thick of the fire at Halstead’s apartment complex.

While everyone managed to get out safely, with a little help from the Chicago Fire department, the aftermath of the incident played a huge role in the episode as everyone involved was somehow affected in the long run, particularly Dylan, who lost Milena when she bled out from her gunshot wound.

The promising couple never got their chance to stand in the sun, which was unfortunate, but in her last moments, Milena assured Dylan that it wasn’t his fault. That, of course, didn’t make her death any less painful or tragic, nor did it stop Dylan from blaming himself as the guilt consumed him because he was the one that shot the gun.

At the end of the day, Dylan is a protector. He wants to help everyone and do good, so he felt as though he failed Milena. 

It’s unfortunate that there wasn’t a happy ending for this couple or that they didn’t get a little more time together. Their romance was short-lived when it could’ve been the source of a stellar PD/Med crossover throughout the season. 

Milena’s death wasn’t entirely surprising considering Riley Voelkel likely has other projects to attend to. And it is a changing point in the series as it underscores the dangers that come with undercover work while also pushing Dylan to finally make a choice about his future. 

Dylan has been a breath of fresh air for Med, but he was consistently torn between being a doctor and a cop. He may wear the white coat now, but he still bled blue, and Milena’s death showed him that there was no path forward in Chicago as he would always find himself walking the line between both duties. He couldn’t shake the past no matter how badly he wanted to, so, he decided to leave Med and find a fresh start. I can’t blame him either as everything here would have reminded him of the future he envisioned and lost with a woman he didn’t even realize he was falling in love with. 

Dylan’s exit is a loss, and I selfishly would have preferred if he went over to Chicago PD instead and played around with the Intelligence unit a bit. They could use a man that’s passionate about doing the right thing and helping clean up Chicago. 

Hannah Asher also experienced some side effects from the fire. Halstead didn’t know she was even home, so it’s a miracle she got out. But despite being cleared for smoke inhalation, she began having trouble breathing and a scan later revealed that the smoke triggered some heroin residue in her lungs. Much like Dylan, Hannah also can’t seem to shake the past.

Chicago Med ow Do You Begin to Count the Losses Season 8 Episode 1

CHICAGO MED — “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses” Episode 801 — Pictured: (l-r) Brian Tee as Ethan Choi, Jessy Schram as Hannah Asher, Nick Gehlfuss as Will Halstead — (Photo by: George Burns Jr./NBC)

Halstead remained by Hannah’s side throughout, but he continues to be the same problematic character. How has he experienced no character growth over the years? In some moments, he’s fine, but mostly, he butts heads with everyone and claims to know better. It’s exhausting.

Choi was right when he told Halstead that he was too close to Hannah. They may not be together as a couple, but he obviously still cares for her in some capacity. This is the core reason why a doctor is never allowed to treat a loved one. His judgment was skewed when it came to Hannah, especially as he was feeling particularly guilty that she was in this situation because of him.

As for who was responsible for the fire, well, all fingers seemed to point to Goran as the likeliest suspect as he figured out that Milena was an undercover cop when he saw her getting cozy to Dylan. However, since that was the obvious choice, it actually ended up being Jesse from Vasik, which wasn’t entirely surprising either as the fire was perfectly timed to the start of the trial where her reputation was going to be dragged through the mud. 

Jesse didn’t want to face the punishment, so she attempted to kill Halstead so that he couldn’t testify, in turn, making things much worse for herself. Did she seriously think they wouldn’t catch her? When Halstead’s brother is part of PD’s Intelligence? She deserves everything coming her way. 

With Jesse arrested, let’s hope that this whole VasCom drama is put behind us once and for all because it’s been dragging out way too long. 

Elsewhere, Crockett was dealing with the fallout of his choice to save Pamela Blake’s life, which, unfortunately, came at the cost of her surgical skills.

It’s a bummer to see everyone bash Crockett— Sam even suggested that his decision was opportunistic to sideline the Chief of Transplant—when, in reality, Crockett was a man terrified of the possibility of losing the woman he loved. 

Blake’s anger is understandable as she’s only ever seen herself as a top-tier surgeon, so this setback forces her to question and reframe everything, but I do think she’ll come around when she puts herself in Crockett’s shoes. While he seemed to regret his decision initially, when Sharon Goodwin forbid him from departing the transplant team, he realized that he needed to continue doing the job. And he stood by his decision with Blake, informing her that if the roles were reversed, she would’ve done the same thing. I’m truly living for Crockett’s vulnerability. 

He was also essential in saving Goran’s life during the transplant, once again proving that Med will be in fine hands until Blake returns because she taught him well. 

There were some stellar moments between Neil and Dr. Charles, along with the new psych student, Nellie Cuavas (Lilah Richcreek Estrada), and it goes to show that Chicago Med is committed to keeping mental health stories at the forefront. Cuavas got an unfiltered look at what it’s like to diagnose an underage patient whose parents weren’t interested in seeking the help that their child needs due to stigma. It’s unfortunate the storyline didn’t really find a resolution once the parents were informed that their son was diagnosed with schizophrenia, but it just shows that sometimes, as a doctor, your hands are tied no matter how hard you try. 

Neil previously attempted to dismiss mental health and Charles’ work in the ED, but it’s nice to see him coming around and acknowledging that it is necessary. He even opened up about his estranged son, who he lost to addiction. He clarifies that his son isn’t dead, he just doesn’t have any kind of relationship with him, though, that’s about to change because towards the end of the episode, Neil accepted a call from his son from the Cook County Jail. while it’s heartbreaking to find out your kid is in jail, at least he now knows his whereabouts and they can start mending the fractures. It’ll be fun to explore this storyline further and get to know a different side of Neil. 

Maggie is struggling with finding a place for her ex, Grant, in her life. It’s clear that there are plenty of feelings bubbling back up to the surface after she reunited Vanessa with her birth father. When Grant approached Maggie asking if she ever wonders what would have happened if their parents didn’t force them to put Vanessa up for adoption, she shot him down immediately, but her need to inform him that she’s happy with her husband, Ben, was telling about her state of mind. Since it’s evident her relationship with Grant didn’t end on her own terms, Maggie has a lot to work through. Hopefully, she doesn’t jeopardize the good thing she has with Ben, to give things with Grant another shot, but honestly, Maggie has always wanted a big happy family, so I can see why her heart is being pulled in this direction that guarantees her that outcome.

And finally, April is back in town! It’s unclear if Yaya Dacosta is going to return to Gaffney after finishing her NP program and returning to Chicago, but it does put into perspective Choi’s comment to Halstead that “feelings” don’t “disappear.” His feelings for April never disappeared, and when they accidentally meet at his father’s grave, there’s definitely plenty of love and chemistry between them. Will they give their relationship another try? After all, they made sure that neither one got married or moved on.

What did you think of the season premiere? Do you like how the Chicago franchise is staging mini crossovers with a little appearance from Fire’s Herman and PD’s Kim Burgess?

Chicago Med Season Finale Review – And Now We Come to the End (7×22)

Published

on

Chicago Med Season Finale And Now We Come To The End Season 7 Episode 22

Chicago Med brought the heat for the season 7 finale! 

The final few moments of the episode were life-changing for a handful of characters. 

Having Halstead testify in the VASCOM trial was likely saved for next season, but it’s unclear if he’ll even survive in order to make it to court. Okay fine, who am I kidding, we know Halstead will survive, but keeping his life hanging in the balance does make things slightly more thrilling. 

The apartment complex fire connected back to Milena, real name Jo, who was gearing up to skip town after her cover was blown by a dirty cop. Can someone tell me why I’m convinced the dirty cop is Dylan’s father? The fact that she asked Dylan if he trusts his dad was such a red flag. 

Milena had an in with the Bosnian mafia, but we knew that they began suspecting her when they saw how cozy she was with Dylan at the hospital. 

It wasn’t exactly surprising that one of the men found her hideout and tried to take her out for being a “traitor,” but it was surprising that Dylan and Halstead also went down with the ship for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Dylan’s feelings for Milena got the best of him. If he hadn’t paid her one last visit to say goodbye, he likely would’ve been spared. However, he also wouldn’t have been there to defend her. 

When Milena was ambushed by the hitman, Dylan fought him off and took the shot. Milena knew it wasn’t safe to stick around, so she made a break for it, which is when she realized she was also injured in the scuffle. All the blood tells me that she’s not going to make it far without seeing a doctor. 

Dylan’s “do no harm” oath kicked in, so even though he knew the man was part of the mafia and a huge threat, he couldn’t leave him behind to perish in a burning building. He risked his life to save him, as did Halstead, who heard the shots and ran back to lend Dylan a hand. That’s when they became trapped in the hallway with no escape, engulfed by flames on both sides. 

Of course, this is the perfect lead-in for a #OneChicago crossover. If it doesn’t happen, it’ll be a huge missed opportunity. Chicago Fire’s squad can put out the flames and get Dylan and Halstead to safety, while Chicago PD’s team can build up the case against the Bosnian mafia and clear Milena’s name once and for all. 

It would be awesome for Riley Voelkel to stick around as a recurring character and Dylan’s love interest as his tether back to law enforcement, which he just can’t seem to shake. 

Plus, they’re a cute couple, and we don’t have many of those left around here. 

That is if Dylan and Halstead even get out in time or survive the following hours. For those of us who have seen This Is Us, we know what happens when someone endures too much smoke inhalation. 

I definitely feel for Halstead since he just purchased this complex with the money he got by being a whistleblower in the VASCOM scandal. 

I know the insurance money will likely cover the damages, but it’s just one blow after the other for him. And right when it seemed like things were finally stabilizing in his life. 

It’s safe to assume that Halstead got his resident, Hannah Asher, to safety prior to running back into the burning building to assist Dylan. Right before the fire, Halstead and Hannah agreed to a clean slate as “neighbors.” Admittedly, it’s a much better meet-cute than a doctor who helps a woman while she’s overdosing. 

I know the series is really trying hard to make this Hannah and Halstead relationship happen, but I would really rather it didn’t happen. One sweet moment between the two of them doesn’t erase the fact that they never see eye-to-eye, especially when dealing with patients. 

Earlier in the day, they had two very different approaches when it came to dealing with a joint patient.

Julia was rushed to the ER after experiencing discomfort with urination. Her boyfriend, Owen, wanted her to get checked out since she was donating an organ to him the following moment. It definitely seemed like the couple was madly in love and the stars just aligned for them,  well that is until Owen confessed that he wasn’t in love with Julia and was torn about whether to tell her the truth and risk having her change her mind about the transplant. 

Halstead then confided in Hannah even though it was clear that he had already made up his mind about how to proceed with the information. He didn’t want to sabotage Owen’s chances of getting an organ transplant because he knew that if Julia backed out, Owen might have to wait years for another shot. 

However, Hannah argued that they were essentially conning Julia into the transplant and that she had every right to know the truth. 

Eventually, Owen had a chat with Hannah who encouraged him to tell Julia the truth. And I’m glad he took her advice because she was right. 

Yes, the worst-case scenario was that Owen might lose a donor, but it was the morally sound thing to do if he ever cared about Julia at all. It was her choice — a choice she was making from a place of love — and she deserved to know all the facts before making a decision about her body and life. 

Julia was hurt by the breakup, but she agreed to go through with the transplant regardless because she wanted to save his life. She knew that she was Owen’s only shot, and wouldn’t let something as trivial as a breakup stand in his way. 

At the end of the day, Julia proved that she loved Owen no matter what. It wasn’t a transaction — Owen didn’t need to repay her by promising eternal love; he just simply needed to acknowledge the sacrifice she was making for him. 

And the fact that Halstead was supporting to deceptive approach really goes to show you what kind of man he really is. There are moments of kindness from him, and then there’s this. It sets us back every time. 

Dr. Choi and Dr. Archer treated Zach, Peter’s son from legal, who suffered a leg injury from lacrosse that meant he wouldn’t be able to finish out the season and get scouted by college reps. He was pretty torn up about it and lashed out at his father, who admittedly wasn’t a fan of the sport. 

After losing his father and harboring a ton of resentment, Choi had a little heart-to-heart with Zach. It may have been too late for him to fix things with his dad, but that doesn’t mean he can’t help others make amends before it’s too late. 

And it was the perfect segue to his father’s navy funeral. Choi regretted all the things he didn’t say or didn’t know, and when he was handed the flag as the next of kin, he passed it on to Gerald. It was a sweet gesture that acknowledged that he approved of his father’s secret life and welcomed Gerald into the family. 

The moment also encouraged Archer to reconnect with his estranged children, so we’ll likely see his personal life expand next season. 

Speaking of children, Sharon Goodwin’s birthday dinner turned into a delivery with a view. Her daughter, Tara, went into labor while they were having a celebratory dinner at The Signature Room at the 95th. 

It’s a good thing Tara was dining with doctors because when the staff informed them that the elevators were down, she had to throw her birth plan out the window and improvise. 

Sharon assured her that she was in good hands as she’s delivered hundreds of babies.  And there’s nothing more special than delivering your grandson into the world. 

Tara and baby were both happy and healthy following the emergency delivery! 

Maggie admitted a patient named Donna, who was an alcoholic suffering from end-stage liver disease. Charles deemed her unfit to make any medical decisions, so they called her daughter, who basically laid into her mother for all of her mistakes. 

It was brutal to watch as she told her unconscious mother that she’s been dead to her for years. There was a lot of resentment there, but at the end of the day, a child cannot help but love a parent despite their flaws.

The moment convinced Maggie to make the call to Vanessa’s birth father and set up a reunion. Vanessa finally met Grant at Grant Park (fitting, right?), and though they didn’t say much, it sure seemed successful. 

Grant seems like a stand-up guy who has an interest in getting to know his daughter. And honestly, I think Maggie is in trouble because when she laid eyes on Grant again, you could tell she was smitten and feeling all the feels. Ben doesn’t deserve this, but you know it’s coming. 

The series doesn’t typically venture outside of the hospital walls, but it was nice to see some Chicago landmarks incorporated in the finale.

There was a lot of focus on children and their parents. 

Dr. Charles finally told Anna about his relationship with Lonnie, but once he finally got it off of his chest, he realized that he was never scared of telling his daughter, he was scared of saying it out loud to himself. 

Almost immediately after the realization, he informed Lonnie that he was breaking up with her. For a therapist, she didn’t seem to handle the emotions that come with a breakup very well, but Charles had a valid point — she knew way too much about him and his past for this to ever work. 

He couldn’t get past their patient-therapist connection, and he felt as though she was criticizing, judging, or assessing his every move based on the profile she built on him. You can’t blame him for feeling like he was under the microscope. And as a therapist himself, he gets it so there was no blame either. 

Pamela finally went under the knife for her spinal issues, but when Sam ran into a complication, Crockett overrode Avery’s decision about her mother’s treatment because Pamela granted him power of attorney. 

Seeing as though Sam and Avery both agreed on the procedure that they thought Pamela would want, it was obvious that Crockett’s choice was the least popular one.

Pamela wanted Crockett to approach it as a doctor, but he was too influenced by his personal feelings. He was paralyzed by the fear of losing her, so instead of agreeing to the risky procedure that she would’ve preferred, he chose the safe one that threatened her motor skills. 

I don’t know why Crockett ever thought that Pamela would forgive him for sabotaging her chances of operating again. The very fact that she wouldn’t be able to operate led her to put off the procedure in the first place, so that should’ve told him everything he needed to know. 

The decision was so simple, and yet, Crockett messed it up.

Things were going well for them as a couple, and I was rooting for them, but it doesn’t seem like Crockett will bounce back from this, especially since she feels like she made the wrong choice by trusting him instead of her daughter.

And Avery already has a dislike towards Crockett, so she’s definitely going to take her mother’s side on this one.

Poor Crockett — he meant well, but it’s going to cost him the woman he cares so much for. 

What did you think of the Chicago Med season 7 finale? Will Dylan and Halstead survive? Will Milena/Jo survive?

How will Pamela punish Crockett?
