Chicago Med (S04E06) “Lesser of Two Evils”

When a child’s life is in the balance, a secret will be revealed. This and many more plus a party for Natalie and Will in this recap of Chicago Med.

When Ethan and April take care of a child whose kidneys aren’t working properly leads to Wilson’s Disease.  She needs a transplant but her parents aren’t her biological parent. When Dr. Charles comes in to help, he feels there’s something more than what meets the eye. The truth comes out when the mother tells Charles and Ethan that they didn’t fully adopt her. But saved her as her when she was all alone while her real mother was getting high. The real mother comes, but her daughter doesn’t want to see her at all. But even that happen she wanted to thank the people that took her in.

Conner and Lanik butted heads this week and I was looking for some fist to face moment but I know Conner is better. When seeing Terry brings Lanik coffee and other things; Conner is just amazed at how much scutwork Terry is doing. But when a trauma comes in, Lanik puts the pressure on Terry to put a central line in but he fails nervously. Conner gives some advice to Terry while he tells him that maybe being a doctor was a bad choice. The patient needs to lose his good leg to be saved. Lanik doesn’t think it’s important to save the guy because Conner thinks he’s afraid that he’ll sue him.

While getting ready for a Bachelor and Bachelorette party, Natalie and Will treat a woman, who’s showed bruises on her face down to her hips.  Thinking that it’s her husband, Natalie gets the truth out of the patient. Natalie and Will discuss their patient that she’s got a blood clot and any stress would cause the clot to burst. But her husband won’t listen and gets her to leave. That is until that clot burst and they pronounced her dead. Her husband leaves pretty quickly while Natalie and Will get their patient help after she faked her death. It was such a great Halloween theme moment?

At the party, Will talks with Jay about Ray again and tells him that he needs to bring him in for his heart condition. But Jay tells him don’t because things won’t be good at all. But it doesn’t look like Will will leave it alone.

“Lesser Of Two Evils” was a very good and strong episode.  The writing was so good. Ethan’s story was so good and it could be a real debate about the difference between kidnapping and saving a child’s life.  I was stun, but understood what they did was for the best of the child; I think that maybe the biological mother would want to share custody with them. There were many moments too from Conner and Lanik butting heads to Conner and Ava having some good moments and Will and Natalie’s party too. I think that Will will do what he thinks is best as a doctor to treat his patients. Sorry, Jay.

Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
