After a longer hiatus than planned, our favorite doctors are finally back. I really enjoyed this episode, despite the fact that it looks Mancel is on their way to becoming a couple. I really just need Manstead to get back together already. But overall, Chicago Med’s “Do You Know the Way Home” was another solid episode.
The Beginning of a Mancel Relationship?
Natalie and Crockett’s not-so-subtle flirting throughout this episode was kind of cute. They flirted about something as mundane as temperatures and it was still adorable. And if I’m being honest, Crockett could flirt about pretty much anything and I’m gonna love it. They’ve been trying to put Mancel together since last season, and things seem to be heating up between them. However, I’m just not sure I can get behind the idea of them as a couple yet, if ever.
I really enjoyed the scenes between Mancel this week, but I’m a huge Manstead shipper. We all know this. They were the first One Chicago couple I really cared about. Mancel is kind of cute, I’ll give them that. And I’d be fine if they were to have a small fling or something, I just don’t want them to have anything long-term. Mancel is not endgame, Manstead is. And I’m not ready to give up on them yet.
The Case of a Missing Girl
This was probably my favorite Med cases in a long time. Maybe ever. I love crime shows, so this case was really interesting to me. I felt so had for the girl though since she was so scared. A lot of missing person’s cases don’t end up getting solved, so I’m glad they were able to solve this one and reunite the girl with her mother.
Intelligence would be proud of the way Ethan, April, and Dr. Charles figured out this case. They were naturals. The way the put all the clues together was amazing. April taking the girl’s stuffed animal from her house was genius. If Intelligence ever needs a hand, I know some doctors over at Chicago Med that would be great at it.
No Means No, Will
New week, same old Will. We love you Will, but you’ve seriously got to start listening to your patients. I’m not sure how he hasn’t learned that lesson yet. Maybe the slap from the patient’s daughter this week will be enough to knock some sense into him.
Will can be stubborn, just like his brother. I feel like stubbornness must run in the Halstead Family genes or something. However, his passion and willingness to fight for what he feels is right for his patients is one of the things I love about him. If he’s not careful though, his stubbornness could backfire on him. I’m not sure what it’s gonna take for Will to learn his lesson, but he better do it, and fast.
Stand Out Scene
The scene when April showed the girl her teddy bear was so heartwarming. All it took was for her to see a piece of her childhood for her to remember who she really was. The emotions between her and April made me emotional, too. A happy ending to a not so happy story.
The fact that April knew just what to do to get through to her was amazing. I never would have thought to bring her a piece of her childhood. At least not right away. It’s truly amazing how simple things like sights, scents, and sounds can jog our memory. April was a hero in this story, that’s for sure.
April: What no one can ever take form you is who you are.
April: I found myself, who I am, and Ethan took that away from me.
Crockett: I tend to run a little hot,
Dr. Charles: Are you sure this is how you want to run your ED?
Crockett: I’m sorry have we met? Because Dr. Natalie Manning doesn’t usually advocate for surgery.
