Despite everything that many of the doctors of “Chicago Med” have been through over the years, one thing certainly remains the same: These doctors are always still learning in one way or another, whether it be about new medical problems, about themselves, or about the best way to treat their parents.
For Dr. Reese in particular, she still has some ways to go in helping some patients in need on an emotional or psychological level. She struggled to figure out precisely what caused one of her patients, a former extreme skier, to develop what was a hysterical pregnancy. She legitimately felt like there was a child there, and became completely unnerved when it became clear to her that this was not the case.
As for some of the other doctors, Maggie took Will Halstead to her family reunion, and with that some interesting details about the past were unearthed. Meanwhile, we also saw Dr. Rhodes back at the hospital take on a very complicated heart surgery, and one that he chose to gravitate towards without prior consultation. This was a learning process for him to understand more of the right and wrong things to do when it comes to consulting Dr. Latham during a religious holiday. Dr. Manning and Jeff Clarke had some problems of their own dealing with a mysterious patient who struggled to communicate.
Was this episode particularly splashy? Not so much, and other than the closing scene with Latham and Rhodes, we’re not even sure that there is all too much that will be memorable here. The biggest issue sometimes that “Chicago Med” faces is that they focus so much of the medicine over the personal side of things that if you’re not enjoying some of what they’ve cooked up on that front, you will find yourself struggling to figure out the finer details. Grade: B-.
