Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Last week’s psych case on Chicago Med was heartbreaking. A father brought his (adult) daughter in, claiming he’d found her tied to the bed in his ex-wife’s house. When the mother came rushing in, she explained her daughter was possessed and she was trying to get an exorcism done to her. Of course, in the end Dr. Charles figured out that the young woman had basically just had a psychotic break of sorts after reconnecting with her father after a long time apart…because the father had sexually abused her as a little girl. It was heartbreaking. (And that was just the first father/daughter story of the night. The second was Reese’s father basically “breaking up” with her, telling her he didn’t really love her, didn’t want to see her anymore, didn’t need her for anything, in order to show Dr. Charles that he was self-sufficient. Jeez. Poor Reese…)
The big case of the week, though, was a set of conjoined twin babies. They were gearing up to separate them after a few more weeks, but one of the twins was sick, and after learning that the baby was experiencing heart failure, what to do about it divided the doctors. Leaving the twins joined now would likely kill them both. According to Connor was sure he could get the sick twin better without having to do the separation now. But one of the other doctors thinks that’s too risky and they’re better off doing the separation and having a near 100 percent chance of saving the second baby’s life. The parents agreed to that when Connor was told he couldn’t even give them his option…but he stopped them right before the procedure was about to get underway and told them his opinion, and they agreed to try it. Thankfully, it turned out well and both babies were alive and well to continue the wait for the agreed-upon separation surgery.
And on another sad case, Will’s patient was misdiagnosed as having diverticulitis, when in reality he had sarcoidosis, an inflammatory condition that will require ongoing medication. Unfortunately, the man was upset because he’d had to change their health insurance in order to help pay for their son’s college tuition, so all the tests and stuff Will ran weren’t covered because they were out of network. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the guy.
On the personal side of things, Maggie asked Barry for help in fudging the expiration date on her paramedic’s license, which would mean she wouldn’t be in trouble for doing the tracheotomy in the previous episode, and he agreed. Thankfully it wasn’t needed because the patient’s family backed her, saying she saved their loved one. So Maggie’s back at work. Natalie is still keeping Will at arm’s length, needing space from him. And Ethan’s sister came to him, asking if she could crash with him for a while since she was kicked out of her apartment. She claimed it was because she complained to the manager so often about the water temp or something… But after she had a party at his apartment even after he specifically said not to, begging April to keep it to herself when she found out, I don’t know… Something’s going to happen with her, I think. And finally, Natalie is still giving Will almost a cold shoulder after telling him before that she needs a break. Bah!
On tonight’s episode, “An Inconvenient Truth,” after taking the lead on a surgery, Dr. Bekker feels the heat after something goes wrong. Dr. Manning and Dr. Charles are faced with a tough decision concerning the gender of a 9-year-old girl. April and Dr. Reese rush to find the son of a dying patient. Goodwin’s godson is admitted to the hospital.
Find out what goes wrong during the surgery tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
