‘Shrill’ Comes to an Abrupt Close in Season 3

Annie Eaton and Fran sit together on a bench in Shrill's Season 3 finale

Published

When Shrill first set out to tell the narrative of a struggling young journalist whose greatest insecurity–weight–turns out to be her strength in building her career, there were times when it felt like Annie Eaton’s (Aidy Bryant) character was going to fall flat and too one-dimensional. Although the series progressed, the character development continued steadily, and Annie’s trajectory toward Season 3, its final season, felt like it was finally finding its footing only to be cut short in an abrupt close.

Shrill Season 3 begins after Annie’s much-needed good riddance to her ex-boyfriend Ryan. The man she had been holding onto out of pure fear she wouldn’t find someone else. Leaving her relationship baggage in the past of Season 2, Annie seems to finally be joining the dating scene she never felt she deserved.

However, with the disastrous reality of the dating world, Annie’s completely over it after her first date goes south. Instead, she finds herself crushing on Nick (Anthony Oberbeck), an office cutie (if you look past the thick pornstache.) Nick is tall, handsome, and thin, all of which seems to be Annie’s preference if she thought she could land a guy like that, being as “big” as she is, or so she thinks.

Things seem to be fun and flirtatious with Nick, and Annie is truly feeling herself. She uses that confidence to push for bigger pieces at The Thorn as she tries to break out of the fat-girl columnist mold that put her on the map as a writer. With that confidence, she feels invincible and seems to lose sight of anything she considers less than idyllic.

Her newfound confidence peaks when Amadi, her work husband, sets her up on a blind date with Will. Annie immediately writes him off when she arrives at the restaurant and sees that he’s plus-sized. The entire scene puts Annie’s characterization at its peak, and we’re finally able to see how far she’s truly come. Albeit, at the expense of Will’s feelings, as she judges him on the pure basis of his weight, the very thing she’s fought so hard to change through her writing.

Meanwhile, Fran’s (Lolly Adefope) relationship with her partner Em (E.R. Fightmaster) is heating up. Em gives Fran the stability that a Sagittarius rarely finds and the spotlight and attention she needs to survive. This is the first time Fran’s character is shown to be in an exclusive relationship for longer than a couple of episodes.

In the seasons preceding, Fran was either juggling a few girls or trying relationship celibacy. Her own self-growth over Season 2 really put her in a good place to pursue an honest and genuine relationship with Em. It’s the first time Fran lets her two worlds collide–the Nigerian culture she has compartmentalized and her current out and proud self.

As Fran and Em are having their big “I love you” moment, Annie is downstairs trying to progress things with Nick. Only to be told that he didn’t see her that way. Why is it that the good guys are always the heartbreakers?

Annie’s job at The Thorn has never been smooth sailing, as she’s continuously fought to be seen as a real writer by her boss Gabe. Finally overcoming that hurdle, she’s been dubbed the fat-girl writer. To write more serious pieces, she takes on the controversial coverage of a separatist community, a nicer name for a group of white supremacists.

Her article receives a ton of backlash, despite the fault, Annie tries to place on Gabe for changing the headline of her article in an attempt to increase views. Annie’s forced to confront her own privilege. The privilege she seems to have forgotten as she’s too busy wallowing in her own self-pity for being fat. The backlash she receives is far worse than the trolls she had before, and she finds herself isolated and turning to the open arms of her deadbeat ex, Ryan.

Making the mistake of sleeping with an already boo’d up Ryan, she finally arrives at her lowest of lows. While making her way out of her own purgatory, she runs into Will at Amadi’s birthday party. The awkwardness of their initial reunion can be felt through the screen, but by the end of the night, their chemistry is flowing.

A month into Annie and Will’s relationship, they go on a couple’s retreat with Fran and Em. Fran and Annie recount the genesis of their relationship. The beginning of a co-dependent friendship. Something that Em points out. Just as the two are talking about moving in together. Initially, the conversation of taking the next big step is good, but somewhere along the way, Fran’s fear of commitment kicks in.

In preparation for Fran’s move out, Annie’s fear of singledom trickles in, and she tries to rush her two-month relationship with Will. Since Will’s still legally married, and because he’s genuinely a thoughtful man, something Annie’s not used to, he lets Annie’s move-in proposal down, gently reminding her he still needs to consider his ex Mikayla’s feelings.

Annie isn’t satisfied with Will’s response and does some sleuthing and confronts Mikayla at her bakery. The idea that Will’s good-guy tendencies are nothing to be worried about sends Annie in a spiral. And while Will’s busy considering everyone else’s feelings, Annie’s only thinking about herself.

With so much uncertainty looming overhead, it feels like the show ended too early. But, we’re left with Annie and Fran finally realizing that to let others in, they’ll need to stop solely relying on each other. And though the unknown is tricky and terrifying,  deep down, they know they’ll be ok. So we might as well pop a bottle of champagne alongside the duo to commemorate the “greatest love of all time.”

Chicago Fire Finale Review: The Magnificent City of Chicago (10×22)

Chicago Fire The Magnificent City of Chicago Review 10x22

Wedding bells are ringing, and Casey makes his grand return for Chicago Fire’s epic season finale!

After Severide got jumped by a gang last week, it was time to plan a wedding! Herrmann gathered the entire firehouse together, and gave everyone (except Emma) jobs that will secure the quickest wedding setup in history. Stella even asked Boden to give her away at the altar. Despite the writing saying that Casey might not show up, Casey showed up! It was great to see Jesse Spencer back in the role we’ve gone so used to seeing him play for the last ten years.

With Sylvie back in the house, she threw Stella a surprise makeshift bachelorette party, which was freaking adorable. On the other hand, Casey and Severide had one of their old fashioned bro moments, since it is most likely going to be the last one we see of them.

Disaster struck as the venue they thought they had booked, had to go back on their word, as a previously cancelled wedding decided to be back on. Casey came to the rescue once again, as he bought out a tour boat for all the guests, and the captain of the ship will be able to marry Severide and Stella.

Severide started to meet with several officers who were looking to start a case against Thomas Campbell, who runs a narotic ring and organized the attack on Severide after the food truck case. While heading to talk to the investigators, Severide was attacked again, but shoved the henchman out a window in self-defense. Regardless, Severide still committed to testify to help the investigation.

The showdown between Emma and Violet came to a head as well. Sylvie returned to Chicago, and Violet filled her in on all of the blackmailing schemes that Emma has started up against her and Hawkins. Hawkins went to his higher ups and wanted to find a way for Violet to somehow escape this situation, even if he had to take the biggest hit for it.

A house fire brought some news to light about Emma. Violet, Stella, Gallo, and Emma were helping a pregnant woman next door neighbor who was hit with debris, when the fire started spreading to their location. Everyone else was calm, but Emma wanted to high-tail it out of the building without everyone. The fire stressed out Emma, and she bolted, abandoning the team inside. The team who had the guts to stay helped deliver the woman’s baby with flames all around them.

Hawkins, who arrived at the fire, saw the whole thing unfold, and discarded the blackmail, and fired Emma for abandoning her crew.

Casey gave Gallo his favorite axe, as he doesn’t use it a whole lot out in Oregon. This is quite literally the passing of the torch for the future of Firehouse 51, as Gallo is sure to grow as a firefighter in future seasons.

At the end, the wedding began, with John Legend’s “All of Me” playing, and I rolled my eyes since that was one of the most cliche things possible. They both had adorable wedding vows which I’m sure actors will use for future audition monologues.

Chief Boden danced during the party, and I think that’s the only important thing I’ll ever need to see on my screen the rest of the year. However, the door did close on Sylvie and Casey, as she decided to stay in Chicago, and he is going back to Oregon, where his life really is.

It wouldn’t be a finale without a cliffhanger! As Stella and Severide begin their honeymoon in a cabin, a mysterious truck silently arrives, assuming it might be someone hunting Severide.

This was a great finale! It tied up the loose ends of Emma’s situation (see, I told you there would be a loophole to get her out)! We also got Casey’s full conclusion, and even though it is the end of his time here, we at least get Sylvie back in Ambulance 61. Who knows, maybe they’ll continue to reference Casey in every episode like they did after he left. Season 11 is sure to be some great twists and stories, with Severide having to go against this narotics ring, and adjusting to married life. I think sparks are in the air for Violet and Gallo…again.

What did you think of tonight’s season 10 closer? Leave a comment below.

Chicago PD Season Finale Review – You and Me (9×22)

Chicago PD Season Finale Review - You and Me Season 9 Episode 22

Wow, that was an emotionally heartbreaking conclusion to a multi-episode arc on Chicago PD. 

Anna gave it her all to bring down Escano and Los Temidos, but it wasn’t without casualties. 

On the Chicago PD Season 9 finale, Anna got too muddled in the case and lost her way. And admittedly, Voight also lost control of the situation. 

He didn’t want to admit it, but this is the first time that we’ve seen Voight slightly unhinged by a case. It was also the first time we’ve seen him so emotionally connected to a CI.  

Upon realizing that they were burned, Voight extracted Anna, who began spiraling almost immediately at the thought of what comes next. 

Voight tried to assure her that it wasn’t over and that he wouldn’t let anything happen to her, but Anna lost faith in herself and Voight a long time ago. She was convinced that without any evidence against Escano, she would end up like all of his men — dead. 

The gutwrenching thing is that if Anna had just listened to Voight and trusted that he was good for it, she would’ve come out of this on the other side because everything that Voight promised came to fruition. If she stayed put, she would’ve been in witness protection for a short moment, she would’ve reconnected with Rafa, and she would’ve been able to see the fruits of her labor. She would have watched as the Chicago PD made the biggest drug bust in history all thanks to her. 

She would have gotten her revenge, she would have gotten recognition, and she would have gotten a fresh start. 

But sadly, none of that happened. From the moment they found Escano on the ground bleeding out at the bakery, it was a downward spiral. 

Escano’s dying declaration was that Anna stabbed him. 

Anna went off the rails, escaped the safe house, and killed the man she thought was going to kill her. She didn’t think that Voight would follow through, so in her mind, killing Escano was worth the risk because at least she would be safe. 

Voight thought he could still salvage the case, and he went to great lengths to save Anna mostly because the guilt of bringing her into this was consuming him. 

He never wanted it to go south, and when he’s in charge of cases, they usually don’t, so he was almost navigating new territory.

But he was willing to risk it all to make sure that she got out as promised. 

I wanted to hate Anna for leaving behind such a mess, but the truth is, I understood her motivation and fear. The kill was, in a twisted sense, justified. 

The ASA questioning is what really set Anna’s rogue plan into motion because it fed into her biggest fear — that they didn’t have anything on Escano. 

They didn’t have any evidence of him committing any crimes, so there was nothing to move on. It wasn’t far-fetched to think that he would become a ghost and fade away into the background, and Anna worried that she’d constantly be looking over her shoulder after betraying him. 

The fact that Voight lied to her also played a role because she didn’t feel like she could trust him. It’s hard to trust that a cop doesn’t have his own best interest at heart, and Anna couldn’t see that Voight wasn’t like the others. 

She led him, Jay, and Hailey (“where you go, I go”) on a wild goose hunt that ultimately ended in a way too public situation. 

Voight was all about doing things on the down-low, but Anna’s actions brought too much attention to everything. There was a time when Voight could have likely figure out an escape plan, but once she pointed the gun at him in the middle of the street, it was a lost cause. 

At that point, Anna wasn’t in the right state of mind. She was spiraling because she killed a man, she was spiraling because she wanted to get away — it was a mix of fear and adrenaline all wrapped up in an explosive combo. 

Voight tried to talk her down from a ledge, but the more he pressed, the more she pushed back until she finally pulled the trigger and shot him in the shoulder. 

From there, it was all a whirlwind. Everything happened so fast that I had to rewind and rewatch a few times. 

Of course, Hailey and Jay both took a shot at Anna when they saw her shoot Voight because a shot at the police is a shot at the police, it doesn’t matter what relationship you have. 

But even then, Voight remained by her side because he knew he dragged her to the depths of hell partly for selfish reasons.

Anna’s actions weren’t indicative of her personality, they were a byproduct of the situation she was placed in. I can’t say she was forced into the situation because she willingly volunteered her efforts throughout the investigation — and while Voight did push her a few times when she said she wanted out, it’s because they invested too much time building up the trust. 

The moment she took the shot, you could tell she regretted it. Her final words were an apology to Voight; It seemed as though she regained a form of lucidity after being shot and realized that she contributed heavily to the deteriorating situation. 

Unfortunately, Anna didn’t survive the two gunshot wounds to the chest. She died at the hospital with Voight by her side. It was a truly emotional moment, especially when you consider the guilt that he’ll carry with him and the fact that she didn’t get to see Rafa one last time. But mostly, it was tragic because it didn’t have to be this way.

As doctors were trying to revive her as she coded, their “clear’s” paralleled the “clear’s” echoing from the unit as they searched the stash house.

And it was a gold mine as they unearthed so many drugs all linked to some of the biggest drug dealers in the city. 

It’s a shame Anna never got to see this moment come to life, but she can rest easy knowing that she helped Chicago clean up its streets. No other young woman or man is ever going to fall victim to Escano’s evil ways. 

My only wish is that we found out how Escano caught onto Anna. Was he the one who ordered her rape and was able to identify her?

The fact that moments prior to his death he blew up a truck full of drugs would have allowed Voight to easily pin this on a rival gang. Ugh, I’m just so sad Anna didn’t reach the finish end!

It was refreshing to see Jay finally in Voight’s corner. Halstead has his moments. He’s a pretty straight and narrow kind of guy, but even he couldn’t deny that Anna didn’t deserve to pay the price for what occurred. 

I do, however, like that he reminds Voight that he needs to button up the situation. Voight sort of had rose-colored glasses on as he assumed his will to help Anna would be enough, but Halstead came at it more pragmatically. He wanted to find an actual solution that would stick and keep everyone safe — Anna and the team. 

Upton rode my last nerve because she just couldn’t get off her damn high horse. Why is she so infuriating? It’s understandable that she wouldn’t want to go down this road again, but the judgment was so sickening. Covering up a murder was fine when it was a case that she felt passionate about, but because she didn’t really care for Anna, she wanted to hold some moral high ground. 

Wanting to stay on the right path is admirable, but you can’t be a hypocrite about it. Instead of preaching about it, it would’ve been helpful if she gave some kind of solution instead. She could’ve shown some remorse or some desire to help Anna out of the mess. 

I don’t have to remind her that where there’s a will, there’s a way, even if it doesn’t seem obvious at first. And I love that Halstead hit back by reminding her that they went the extra mile for her when she needed it.

The thing with Voight is that he doesn’t just go astray or cover up crimes for anyone — when he does it, it’s understandable because he knows that the system is rigged and often favors the person that should be paying the ultimate price. 

Sometimes, you just have to return the favor, Hailey. 

This job has never been black or white, and she’s naive to think that eliminating the gray spaces is possible. She came around in the end, but honestly, it was too late at that point. I know this sounds mean, but maybe she should’ve just taken some time following the explosion to recover. 

I love Ruzek, Bugress, and Atwater. They remain unproblematic. When Voight says to keep it off the books, they’re all like “weird, but okay.” They didn’t question — they just followed orders and delivered the Los Temidos gang on a silver platter. That’s not always the case with them, but they definitely get a gold star this time around. 

Voight was also a beast when he convinced Chapman — sorry, forced — to give pull strings and get him arrest warrants. 

He knew that he could deliver the cartel to Chapman, and if she agreed to help, he would credit her with the bust and build up her career. 

Chapman made the right choice in the end because wow, you do not want to get on Voight’s bad side. He knows the moves to destroy a career just as quickly. 

A special shout-out goes out to whoever managed to get everyone on board with a shirtless Voight. It was a bold choice considering it wasn’t exactly a “thirst trap” friendly moment, but I’m petitioning for more opportunities like this one.

And lastly, props to Carmela Zumbado on her performance! Her character was such a riveting addition to the season, so it was a shame to see her go out like that! 

What did you think of the finale? Was a part of you hoping that Anna would somehow turn her whole life around and go from CI to murderer to detective? Did you think Voight pushed too hard to save Anna or was it justified? Do you think Voight is too corrupt for the gig or does he have integrity by helping those who have helped him?

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

Published

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?
