    What You Don't Know

    Secrets can only be kept for so long. 

    Will's time hiding things from Nat almost ran out on Chicago Med Season 4 Episode 5. It probably would have been better for him if it actually had. The longer you keep a secret, the more lies you have to tell, and the bigger the fallout. 

    Will is headed towards a serious danger zone with his lies to Nat. Some of them may be necessary, but he started lying to her well before he was tapped as a CI. 

    More annoying than the lying may be WIll's "poor me" attitude about the whole thing. In a franchise populated with heroes willing to sacrifice for the greater good, here's a guy whining about being asked to help take down a suspected murderer. 

    It just doesn't fit into the ethos of #OneChicago.

    Backed Against the Wall

    The secrets are piling up at Gaffney. 

    Will really racked up his tally on Chicago Med Season 4 Episode 4, repeatedly lying to his fiance about the mess he's found himself in all to get them a cheap wedding venue. 

    Spoiler: the price of the venue probably won't end up mattering. 

    Please, please let that be an accurate spoiler. 

    If Natalie ends up marrying Will after all this nonsense, she may deserve the heartache she'll get. 

    It's stupid that he's lying to her anyway. If he'd been upfront with her in the first place when the stakes weren't as high, she might have been upset, but it could have blown over.

    But lying about being asked to be an undercover CI to take down what amounts to a mob boss? Wouldn't you be pissed?

    Heavy Is the Head

    What has Will gotten himself into this time?

    Will Natalie stick with him through yet another dumbass mistake? 

    The ED attending lost sight of the big picture as he tried to plan his dream wedding on Chicago Med Season 4 Episode 3. The groomzilla's singlemindedness is going to lead him down a dangerous path, and even his brother may be unable to stop him. 

    Will's bullheadedness is nothing new, which only makes it more exhausting. Haven't we already seen variations on this, albeit with less dire potential consequences? 

    Will's inability to grow past his mistakes is frustrating as a viewer, and it's hard to fathom how this is supposed to endear the ginger doctor to us. 

    Still, it's a treat to have the better Halstead around. And it's a good sign that #OneChicagoOneNight is going to pay off for audiences. Who's not down with more crossover moments?

    When To Let Go

    What a great second hour of Chicago Fire!

    Just kidding. 

    While it did feel like Chicago Med Season 4 Episode 2 focused more on the visiting characters from Fire and Chicago PD, our faves had their moment in the sun; if you squinted hard enough. 

    An emphasis on outside characters wasn't the only problem with "When To Let Go." More objectionable was that it was virtually a repetition of Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 18. 

    If having mass casualty events was more the norm in the Chicago world, it wouldn't have been as striking. But that ED is usually so quiet that the events drastically stand out, especially coming so close together in the timeline. 

    At least this time there was continuity between the Chicago franchises.

    Crisis of Confidence

    A serial killer? Did you see that coming?

    We may have established that Robert's a psychopath, but the possibility that he left a trail of destruction that extended beyond failed marriages and burnt bridges in academia was shocking.

    But that was just one of many surprises on Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 19.

    Granted, Dr. Charles turn at playing detective was the most outrageous plot. Almost as outrageous as the fact that he went about his investigation so ham-handedly. 

    Daniel might not be a police investigator and he may have some emotional involvement that he's not willing to cop to, but he's not an idiot. Nor is he unfamiliar with the justice system and what's admissible in court. 

    So why the hell is he driving up to Madison all on his own?

    This is Now

    Gaffney finally faced a real emergency.

    Though you might not have known it by watching the sedate pace of Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 18. To be fair, things did move at a brisker pace than usual.

    But there was no adrenaline pumping through the veins of the ED team while they deal with this tragedy.

    I may not over been impressed much by "This Is Now," but that doesn't mean that there's not a lot to unpack.

    It's sadly actually impossible for a show, particularly a medical drama or police procedural, to not tackle mass shootings. This isn't even the first such incident on Med. 

    Remember the movie theater shooting on Chicago Med Season 1 Episode 4? This time, there wasn't even an attempt to discuss the "good guy with a gun" idea, or the second amendment, or background checks.

    The Parent Trap

    These docs just can't keep the drama out of the hospital, can they?

    From bickering (maybe) exes to family feuds, Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 17 was wrought with conflict. Happy endings are hard to come by though, so we should just be glad that they all made some small steps towards resolutions.  

    #Manstead is still on shaky ground, despite Nat's acknowledgment that she's not perfect. Which I didn't really understand. Of course she's not perfect, but it's also not her fault that Will's put her on a pedestal or that he's trying to make himself feel better by tearing her down. 

    I'm just not digging the recent developments in their relationship. I was never fully on board with the romance, true, but I had come to accept it. Will had grown, Nat had chilled, all was good.

    But the behavior we saw from our favorite ginger was really concerning.

    An Inconvenient Truth

    The promo for Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 16 may not have been as misleading as others we've seen, but it did bury the lede. Connor and Ava getting into spats is nothing new or exciting, but Will and Nat ending things? There's some drama!

    Even from a medical stand point, there were more exciting cases. Both the complicated ethics of Nat and Daniel's case and Sharon's guilt ridden godson were more compelling than a lost instrument. 

    While the location (and size!) of the lost instrument was concerning, I thought it was kind of a flimsy premise for the conflict it created. It's alarming to think about, but retained surgical instruments are not exactly uncommon.

    Really, the scrub nurse who didn't notice the bullet sized piece missing from the suction tube should be the one reprimanded. 

    I guess it let us see more of Ava's "human" side, but it was a pretty contrived way of doing so. If anything, it just revealed more of Connor's jacka...

    Devil in Disguise

    Our leading men were not their best selves on Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 15. But while they might be heading to major slumps, at least Maggie's back in the game.

    She's just going to have to face what she was willing to do to get there. 

    Connor's rising start certainly took a nose dive this week. 

    Even though I think that presenting all the options to the parents was the right call, it was kind of refreshing to see one of the docs get called out on going rogue. 

    But even if Latham's criticism was justified, it hurt to see their bro-mance damaged like that. And I feel bad for Ava -- nobody wants to know that they're the second pick. Norma Kuhling did a really great job despite not having many lines. 

    To perform an operation with as many moving parts as this, you need confidence that the people you are working with are pulling in the same direction. I fear, Dr. Rhodes, that you are not a team player -- t...

    Lock It Down

    The kidnapping may have been the least dramatic part of Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 14, despite being the most hyped. 

    No, what shocked us all most of all has to be a tie between the #Manstead break and Maggie's suspension. Those stories were so juicy, I don't know why anything else had to happen. 

    Connor's adventure through the tunnels to help Choi with heart surgery might be the most pointless things we've seen so far from this show.

    I love Colin Donnell, and Connor is a great character, but it simply wasn't necessary. Even taking into account that the fundraiser was likely the setup for some more creepy dad issues didn't make it worth it.

    The time would have been better spent humanizing the parents of the missing child, or focusing on the past relationship between the kidnaper and Natalie.

    Yeah, you might have missed that Joanna Harris, the woman who took the baby, was a former patient that we'd actually met. ...
