Let’s begin with the most biggest part of the episode: the separation of the twins. After Rhodes’ stepped down, he still got involved.  Being behind the scenes, he finally got to help perform a difficult procedure that required a shunt in the heart. It would lead him to helping with the separation surgery.  Rhodes later gets a position offer at the Mayo Clinic and after telling Bekker about it, it kind of broken things with them.

Ethan, who’s  worried about his sister, sees Deb and Kiki come in with abdominal pains, upset stomachs and liver enlargement. Which  turns out that they have Hepatitis A and both him and Manning headed out there to check on the others. There they not only find Laura (who’s in worst shape) but Ethan’s sister as well. Laura got the worst of the case and that also includes Hepatitis C. Laura learns that her baby, that’s adopted, had came in to get tested healthy. After seeing her baby for a few minutes, Laura’s condition took a tumble and died.

Reese has been trying to take care of her dad by helping him pick a nursing home for his rehab and let alone helping him get exercise too (walking). Charles gets into contact with the parents of the college student that was murdered. But after a couple of minutes talking with Haywood, he decides to have a chat with the parents of the college student.  But he notices an item  missing from her room (stuff monkey). He later finds it in Haywood’s apartment.

Goodwin had so much going on at the hospital, but Burt, her ex-husband, had came in after trying to kill himself. Halstead treats and tried to talk to him, even Charles tries to talk to him (even as a friend) but that didn’t work til  Sharon, finally came in and talked him of what he still has, their three children, which kind of helped get him to admit of seeking help.

Now with all those moments, lets put those that left us with in state of shock and wishing for the fall season to start.  Ethan was determined to get the help Emily needs but April doesn’t think he can help her. But Ethan isn’t gonna give up on her and tells her that she’s coming back to stay with them that quickly turns into just being with him. After a successful day, Sharon gets word of a new Trauma chief on the floor and a new CCO of the hospital that she might need to keep an eye on.

After losing Laura and the learning that the separation was successful, Dr. Frisch comes over to Halstead and asked if he wants to celebrate with him, for which he turns her down. Natalie finally sees that Frisch was one that he had a drink with during their “break.” After his plan went south, Halstead just went for it and  proposal up to Natalie on the spot in the parking lot.

But real moment came when Charles confronts Haywood about the murder of the college student. Haywood tells Charles that he can’t just give it up that Reese is back in his life again. But when Charles  pushes Haywood,  he collapse to the ground with his new heart stopping. But Reese comes in and seeing her dad on the floor.

“The Tipping Point” seemed to be the tipping point with all good things that had happen for the characters, it could be broken with one little saying or not informing or pushing to the limits. The season finale was as strong of an episode as ever with strong character development and leaving us some major questions about certain characters: like for one did Natalie said yes or no? Even that was awkward proposal. But the big one was Haywood collapsing to the floor in front of Charles and Reese coming in at the end. Is he dead? If he is I assume that he caused his heart to stop in the way that he had Reese played to his hands an all. Probably not going to make the relationship between Reese and Charles good again. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10 and the season a 9/10.
