Ethan and Will butting heads, Mancel flirting and being all cute, Maggie getting news on her daughter, and Will going Rogue. Just another episode of Chicago Med, Right? Some things never change. That being said, I really enjoyed Chicago Med‘s “So Many Things We’ve Kept Buried”.
Mancel Date Night
The Mancel flirting this season has been amazing to say the least. Their flirty banter is incredible. It’s part of the reason I’ve come around to them like I did, even though I’m not fully Team Mancel. The past two episodes have started with flirty Mancel, and I’ve gotta say, I loved it. And Mancel planning date night at Crockett’s place was almost as adorable as them having date night at Crockett’s place.
I love how open Marcel is being about his life with Natalie. It’s another reason I’ve become okay with Mancel dating, for the time being. We’ve learned so much about Crockett and his backstory this season, and I think a lot of that is thanks to Natalie and his relationship with her. They’re good for each other, and I’m okay with that for the time being.
Another Love Triangle?
It looks like Will and Ethan are both after Dr. Virani’s heart. I think Will got jealous when he saw Choi and Virani flirting, and the look on Ethan’s face when he saw Will and Virani leaving together for dinner says it all. I think part of the reason Will went rogue like he did was to show off to Virani. If you ask me, Will wanted to impress Virani so she would choose him and continue to want him over Ethan.
When it comes to Virani, I’m Team Choi. Dr. Virani has so much more chemistry with Ethan than she does with Will. Plus, like I’ve said before, Will does not need to date every woman he works closely with. Some women, like April, can just be friends. We haven’t had a love triangle on Med in a while, so I guess it was time for one again, but please let Ethan be the winner of this one. That’s all I’m asking.
April Saves The Day
As much as April annoys me sometimes, and this episode was no exception, she’s good at what she does. There’s no denying that. Which is why it did not surprise me when April stepped in to help the man at the construction site like she did. She annoyed me a little bit when she was trying to get involved when Lannik didn’t need her to, but that’s besides the point. Like Lannik said, she not only saved the mans leg, she saved his life, and I think she missed her calling by not going to med school.
Which begs the question, will April be considering med school now? She definitely has a knack for it, and there’s no denying that her hearts in it. The look on her face when Lannik said that she missed her calling makes me think that she may be going to med school. I would love that for her. She didn’t go to med school so that Noah could, but there’s nothing holding her back now. I would love to see Nurse Sexton become Dr. Sexton.
Stand Out Scene
Maggie has found her daughter! I repeat, Maggie has found her daughter! Well, not physically, but she got a letter from DCFS about who her daughter is. It was a little fast, sure, considering Maggie just said last episode that she was going to look for her, but I’m happy for her. There’s a void in Maggie’s heart, and if Maggie wants to find her daughter, then I want that for her.
I hope this storyline ends well for Maggie. I hope that whatever’s in that letter and whatever Maggie decides to do with that information, it’s on Maggie’s terms. If Maggie decides to meet her, then I hope her daughter agrees, and if Maggie decides not to purse things any further, then that’s okay to. I just want it to be what Maggie wants, and for things to be on her terms. She deserves that much.
Lannik: Pretty good for a nurse. Should have gone to med school.
Ethan: You’ve already done enough damage as it is.
Goodwin: This is far beyond the bounds of professional conduct.
Ethan: Going behind my back throwing up hail maries? We got the win today, but you and I have a problem.
