The wait is over, and Chicago Med is back with “Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore.” This episode really had a lot to digest. Everyone seems to be going through some huge life stuff and it’s affecting them majorly. And not to mention April is keeping a major secret from Ethan.
The only question is, does it matter?
The Chexton Moment We’ve All Been Waiting For!
Well, It finally happened! Ethan and April are engaged, and I couldn’t be happier. Those two have been through their fair share of rough patches. It’s good to see them in a good place. They are so good together! I can’t wait for them to finally say their ‘I do’s’. And the way Ethan surprised April by coming home a day early and then proposing to her was way too adorable!
However, with April keeping the secret of her kiss with Dr. Marcel from Ethan, things could go south fast. April is keeping a major secret from Ethan, and it’s probably only a matter of time before he finds out the truth. April may think it doesn’t really matter, but to Ethan it will matter a lot. Personally, I think April should have told Ethan the truth about the kiss right away. Sure, Ethan probably would have been mad and heartbroken, but at least he would know the truth.
Secrets have no place in a relationship, especially a secret like this one. I just hope that, once Ethan does find out the truth, these two can work it out and still be together. We all know how keeping secrets worked out for Manstead, and the last thing we need is for another Chicago Med wedding to be ruined by secrets.
Can Manstead Be Friends Again?
We all know I am Team Manstead, so anything that involves them not fighting I am all for. I think Natalie wanting to be friends again is a good step in the right direction. Baby steps. Hopefully these two can work things out and then maybe start working toward a romance again. One can only hope, right?
I definitely think Will and Natalie are starting to respect each other again. I mean, they were able to work together on a case without completely ripping each other’s heads off. Sure, there was a little bit of anger between them after Natalie called CPS, but they can get over that. Natalie was just doing what was best for her patient, and I’m sure Will will see that once he calms down. I just really hope these two can work their stuff out, because I am sick of them fighting. I still believe that Manstead is endgame, and after tonight, maybe that’s still possible.
Somebody Give Dr. Charles A Hug
This episode really started off hitting us in the feels. Cece is dead, and I just want to give Dr. Charles a hug. Cece’s death is really affecting him, and it’s affecting his work, too. It’s not like Dr. Charles to be distant with people, especially when they need his help on a case. I knew something was up with him when he blew off Elsa when she needed advice on a patient. He is always the first person to help comfort someone when they are down, so it hurt to see him hurting like that.
Dr. Charles singing the karaoke song for Cece at the end of the episode was absolutely beautiful. And I gotta say that Oliver Platt is not a horrible singer. I almost cried when he choked up as he was doing it, though. I thought it was the perfect way to end the episode, especially after Elsa told him about the app she uses to help with her anxiety that turns her words into a song.
Stand Out Scene
The scene between Natalie and Jesse, after he saw his mom having a seizure was so powerful. I almost lost it when he asked her not to lake his mom away because he knew how to take care of her. However, the fact that he had narcan in his backpack and had to use it on his mom before was definitely troubling. A kid that young should even know what narcan is, let alone how to use it.
While Natalie has made some controversial medical calls in the past, I completely agree with her calling CPS after her conversation with Jesse. Lynne was definitely not fit to take care of him. I get that she was trying her best, but that was just not a good living situation for a young kid. I get that Will was mad that Natalie called CPS without talking to him first, but I think she actually did the right thing here. A situation where a young child has had to use narcan to revive his mom from an overdose is not a good situation for them to be in. Her kid needs to matter more to her than drugs.
Ben: I don’t want to go out and celebrate. Not until we both can declare victory.
Natalie: Actually Will, I’d like us to be friends again
Will: I can’t be the reason she loses her kid
Ethan: You need to know that I love you, and I love your passion and your loyalty, and I don’t wanna go another six weeks without you in my life. So, April Sexton, Will you marry me?
