‘Chicago Med’ 5×14 Review: “It May Not Be Forever”

This week’s episode of Chicago Med “It May Not Be Forever” took us for a wild ride. From a possible abuser to a potential misdiagnosis, it definitely kept us on the edge of our seats. But would it really be an episode of Chicago Med if it didn’t leave us guessing? And I am not a fan of anything coming between Manstead. Someone keep Crockett and Hannah away from Natalie and Will, please. I’m begging you.

Not An Ideal Situation

I have found myself agreeing more and more with Natalie Manning and her decisions. Her patient definitely should not have been able to make medical decisions on her husband’s behalf. Nobody should have to make medical decisions for their abuser. I can’t imagine how scary it would be to be put in that situation. She was clearly scared that he would retaliate, and that’s why she turned off his ventilator which resulted in his death.

Let me just say that I am not a fan of Natalie and Dr. Marcel working together. Keep them on opposite ends of the hospital, please. They make a great team, but it feels like they are building toward something more. And I am not a fan of it. Plus, those two can’t seem to agree on how to handle their cases. They also don’t seem to be able to communicate very well. Just keep Dr. Manning and Dr. Marcel away from each other for a while, please. I’m begging you.

Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Will Halstead has a huge heart. He cares for others, and often puts them ahead of himself. Especially since that’s why he got involved in the illegal safe injection site in the first place, despite Dr. Charles advising him not to. He wants to help others any way he can, even if it’s not necessarily safe or legal. That’s why this episode he struggled with his ethics of staying at the safe injection site and helping other addicts, or leaving and turning Dr. Asher in and getting her the help she needs.

I was definitely not a fan of all the flirting that was going on between Will and Dr. Asher at the end of the episode. I am still waiting for Will and Natalie to get their crap together and realize that they are meant to be together. Hannah Asher is not right for Will Halstead. Will does not belong with a drug addict. To me, Hannah Asher is nothing but trouble, and my Manstead-loving heart can’t take this.

Stand Out Scene

The ending scene when Ethan was setting up a crib when April came home and talked about setting up the nursery was so cute. Those two are going to make amazing parents when the time comes. I just hope they aren’t getting their hopes up too high. I mean, we’ve all seem what happens to the One Chicago women when they try to have a baby.

April seems to still be thinking about Dr. Marcel, and she needs to stop. Ethan is amazing to her. Plus, it seems like Dr. Marcel might have a thing for Natalie now. She needs to either tell Ethan the truth about what happened or forget about it and move on. Either way, April needs to figure out what she wants.

Best Lines

Dr. Marcel: You can’t kill someone who’s already dead

Dr. Charles: Be right there next to him, so you can heal together

Dr. Marcel: Let me put it like this: a victim of abuse is being hauled off to jail, and in my opinion that’s a lousy outcome

Dr. Asher: You care. About me
