Between Noah Sexton coming back, Will in a white coat, and seeing more of the Sexton siblings, there was a lot to love about this week’s episode of Chicago Med. I’m a little disappointed that Noah only returned for one episode. Noah Sexton deserved better and you will never change my mind. But other than that, Chicago Med‘s “When Your Heart Rules Your Head” was a pretty solid episode.
Noah Sexton is…Back?
Even though Noah Sexton was not a regular character on Chicago Med, he was easily one of my favorites. I loved that we got to see Noah’s journey as a young doctor fairly straight out of Med school. Noah’s storylines were always some of my favorites because I loved seeing him grow. Needless to say, Roland Buck deserved to be a series regular and when I heard that he was returning as Noah Sexton this season, I was hoping it would be for more than one episode.
So all the other Med doctors can cross lines and break the law all the time with no consequences, but the one time Noah does it to help a patient he get fired for it? Lol okay, that seems fair. I think Ethan reacted a little too harshly in this situation. I get that Noah crossed a line by allowing Dr. Coleman to kill himself and did something he shouldn’t have done, but other doctors have done a lot worse and walked away with only a mere warning. Was Noah in the wrong? Yes. But did he deserve to get fired for it? I don’t think so.
The Beginning of the End For Mancel?
Natalie seemed to be leaving Crockett’s place in a hurry. And then not wanting to go to his place later? Does she not want what he wants? There is definitely seems to be some chemistry between them, but I think Crockett’s history is setting off some red flags for Natalie. And the fact that Crockett’s ex-wife showed up at his apartment will probably distance Natalie even more now.
I’ve never been the biggest Mancel shipper. I just want Manstead back. However, that being said, I was genuinely excited to see where thing were gonna go with them. When I posed the question last week of Natalie was going to be just another one of Crockett’s one night stands, I wasn’t being serious. Things aren’t looking good for them though, and Crockett’s got some work to do if he really wants things with Natalie to work.
A Grandkid For Dr. Charles
Anna Charles is pregnant, y’all. I can honestly say that I didn’t see that one coming. Anna seemed genuinely scared when Natalie told her and she was trying to get birth control to prevent a pregnancy, which makes me wonder if Anna will end up going through with it. Especially since she didn’t even want her parents to know that she wanted birth control. And it didn’t surprise me one bit that Natalie ran Anna’s labs off the record because of that. This whole situation is really messy.
I can only imagine how Dr. Charles is going to react when he finds out. I think he’ll be shocked and maybe even a little angry/disappointed at first, but ultimately support her. Because let’s be real, Dr. Charles is probably the most supportive guy on Chicago Med. This pregnancy, and don’t quote me here, but her pregnancy might even cause her to get in a fight with her mom or something along those lines and end with her staying in Chicago with Dr. Charles. I loved seeing Dr. Charles be a father to Anna, and I can’t wait to potentially see him as a grandfather. Because let’s be honest, Dr. Charles would be an amazing grandfather.
Stand Out Scene
I know I already talked about it, but Ethan firing Noah really irked me. Noah messes up one time and gets fired for negligence, yet other med doctor can commit a crime and just get a slap on the wrist. It just doesn’t sit right with me. I don’t know if Ethan was harder on Noah because he trained him or what, but man that was rough. Noah deserves better and his goodbye to April broke my heart. Justice for Noah Sexton. Forever and always.
I can’t help but wonder how this will affect Chexton going forward. Ethan fired April’s brother. I can’t imagine April wanting to have a relationship with him after that. Their relationship was already rocky to begin with, and this might be the final nail in the coffin. I think Chexton might be one Med relationship we can say goodbye to for now.
Ethan: I know you. I taught you, Noah. You don’t make mistakes.
Noah: This wasn’t murder – it was an act of mercy.
Ethan: In the eyes of the law, this is murder.
Natalie: It’s not recommended for you…you’re pregnant
Maggie: I’m a Lockwood woman, We handle things.
Noah: Why does he always have to be such a hardass?
