‘Chicago Med’ 5×18 Review: “In the Name of Love”

It seems like we are gearing up for some romance on Chicago Med. Sparks definitely seem to be flying between some of our favorite doctors. I guess that’s pretty fitting, since the name of this week’s episode is “In the Name of Love.” But I gotta say, I’m not sure I’m a fan of the potential new romances. I think I’d rather go back to the old ones.

Are We Headed for a Romance Between Natalie and Crockett?

Natalie and Crockett were partnered up yet again on this week’s episode. Like can they be partnered with ANYONE else?! I’m getting really tired of seeing them together all the time. Partner them up with Ethan or Will or literally anyone else. It seems like they can never agree on how to handle their cases, tonight’s episode included. That reminds me a lot of when Will and Natalie used to work together. Have I mentioned that I miss them? Because I do. A lot.

It definitely seems like they are gearing up for a romance between Natalie and Crockett. I’m sorry, but I just don’t see them as a couple. Plus, Natalie was angry with Crockett just last episode for kissing April. Now I’m supposed to believe that she is romantically interested in him and they’re gonna start a relationship? I just want to go back to simpler times when Manstead was together and happy. But it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting them back any time soon.

All the Love for Maggie and Ben

I just love Ben and Maggie. And hearing Ben introduce Maggie as his wife made me so dang happy. It’s nice to see them so happy. And they care so deeply for each other and the people around them. We have no choice but to stan Maggie and Ben.

I love how caring Maggie and Ben are. Maggie’s a nurse and Ben’s a teacher, so that just tells you that they want to help people and give back to their community. I wish they would have adopted that sweet little boy. They would make the best parents. They have so much love to give. But who knows, maybe they’ll end up having kids of their own someday.

Sparks Are Flying For Hannah and Will

Will and Hannah have been getting a lot closer lately. Hannah has definitely taken an interest in Will, and it certainly seems like he’s interested in her, too. They’ve already slept together once, and it seems like they’re headed for something more. Perhaps they’re gearing up for a relationship between Will and Hannah, too. And I gotta say, I’m not really a fan of it. I’m missing Manstead a lot right now.

I’m glad Will is starting to be a little hesitant about his relationship with Hannah. At least he was for a little bit. I think what Dr. Charles said really got to him. I thought it was kinda interesting myself. I wonder if it’s true that neurochemically there is very little difference between the dopamine rush from drugs and a romantic relationship. As a psychology major, I am very interested in this. But even if Will and Hannah become a thing, I still believe that Manstead is endgame.

Stand Out Scene

Even though it wasn’t the greatest scene for him, the scene that stuck out to me the most this episode was when Will resuscitated his patient, even though he was told not to. Leave it to Will to defy orders once again. He just can’t get over his need to save everyone. It’s what brought him and Hannah together, and I don’t see this being the last time he breaks rules to save patients.

Why does Will constantly feel the need to risk his license? He always seems to be making some kind of shady move that puts his license in jeopardy lately. First with the safe injection site, then with Hannah, and now with his patient. Will, you gotta stop. We all love you and want to see you keep your career at Med, but you gotta stop making all these risky decisions, bud.

Best Lines

Natalie: Sometimes in the ED, we get tunnel vision. All we can see is the patient in front of us. But Nick could see past that, beyond his own benefit. and I think you did too. You know, with a new surgery, the more you do it, the better you’ll get. The more lives you’ll save. And maybe you couldn’t save Nick’s, but maybe someday, you’ll save his son.

Crockett: I answer to my patients, not to you.

Natalie: Don’t flatter yourself.

Crockett: I know when I”m out of my depth.
