Chicago Med 7×20 “End of the Day, Anything Can Happen” is…complicated. Or, rather, we have some pretty complicated feelings about the episode. For one thing, it looks like the series is setting up certain avenues of storytelling that we know will end badly. But then, it’s like, if we could just erase history, what we get here would be endearing, almost? Maybe?
So, it’s like…What do we do with that? Do we say “wow, we can’t help liking [redacted] right now because this character said this here and threw that shady look there?” Or…Or. Do we sit back and just kind of…not.
Some parts of “End of the Day, Anything Can Happen” not only give us possible answers to some of our biggest questions, but are also just emotionally stunning, on multiple levels, both personal and professional. Dominic Rains and
Donna Paulsen Sarah Rafferty give excellent performances here. And no, we’ll never have enough.
Then again, there are places where we just zone out. See? Complicated.
Overall, we’d say it’s still, somehow, a solid hour. There are a lot of things to be said about families—how parents, and grandparents, the younger generation, and even found family take care of each other. Protect each other. Try to do what’s best for each other. If you’re here for that or simply have a favorite character—at least one who didn’t disappear without a real exit—you’ll probably be entertained.
If not, who knows?
Out of context teases for Chicago Med 7×20
- So. Much. Coffee. My kind of place…and oh, that misspelled name.
- Lizzie: This hospital would collapse without Dr. Charles, right? Right.
- She called him that. I want to stan. God, I do. But I know better.
- Lizzie: Make Vanessa a series regular. Not just because this show desperately needs more women, either.
- You can not be that pretty and also extra soft with children. No. I already have a Detective Elliot Stabler and a Dr. Doug Ross, thank you very much.
- Lizzie: I just feel a sense of dread over where what is honestly a long-overdue storyline is going for Maggie.
- I can’t decide if I like, love, or hate what they’re doing with Ethan at the moment. Jury’s out.
- Lizzie: But this episode is as much about him as anyone else, and there’s a lot to think about.
- Also, not saying the character because it’ll give it away as you watch, dear viewers…But one part is either the most brilliant swerve of all time, or the dumbest dropped ball with the most bait. Choose your fighter.
- Lizzie: Or both? Can it be both?
- I just think that the high ponytail.
- The promo pics might claim otherwise, but we promise, Will Halstead hasn’t disappeared. He’s here.
- Lizzie: And he gets to hear something from Sharon Goodwin he probably should have heard before, from other people. You can see in his face how much it means.
