    I agree with a lot that has been said. However, I disagree with the idea that “Adam promised her a future and backed out.” It was Kim who broke off their engagement, not Adam. Kim was justified in doing so at the time. She felt that he wasn’t taking their wedding seriously and that he was taking her for granted. Adam was also very immature in the early seasons and she probably felt that he wasn’t ready to get married. Something is holding Kim back from committing to Adam and in my opinion, it hasn’t been addressed. Is it that she cares for Adam, but doesn’t love him? Is it that she hasn’t really dealt with the trauma she suffered from Roy and that is affecting her in ways that she doesn’t even realize? Taking what we have seen from this episode, it appears that they have not talked about how the events from Gone (S9, E15) have affected them individually and as a couple, but have only addressed the issues as they have affected Makayla and placed her in therapy. No one can fault putting Makayla’s needs first. That said, they should have been able to address their relationship while taking care of Makayla.

    As for Med, I am sorry to see Dr. Hammer go, but her exit may be because of her real life pregnancy. The show runners have not closed the door on her coming back, so maybe we will see her again. I did not mind Dr. Asher coming back. Television does not always do a good job with addiction. Too many times someone has a problem and poof the problem is magically solved with no relapses or it’s never mentioned again. Cagney and Lacey, Rescue Me and Mom are notable exceptions to this. Seeing Dr. Asher deal with her addiction could be interesting. Having her talk to Dr. Charles could be a very good way to go. I would like to see Dr. Charles treat someone we know and whose problems we have seen. I think it would be a nice change from a patient we see once and never again. I could also see good cross-overs with him treating Kim or Hailey, but I digress. Putting Will together with Hannah I have some mixed feelings about, in part because of all the One Chicago shows, Med has had some God awful relationships. Nothing else in One Chicago even comes close to how bad Natalie and Philips’s relationship or Eva and Connor’s relationships were. Those relationships were so bad that the way Dr. Blake and Dr. Marcel’s relationship started doesn’t even phase me.
