At least one person ended up having a good day on Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 10.
Meghan may have gotten her heart, but everybody else's day pretty much sucked. Maggie got temporarily replace, Charles and Connor had a patient let them down, Natalie got publicly chewed out, Jeff got dumped, and Sarah got no sleep.
Natalie's starting to get good at standing up for herself, even if she isn't getting any better at picking love interests. Maybe she should start looking outside of the hospital?
I don't want to give credence to anything that smarmy close-talker Dr. Stohl said, but dating a med student, even one you've had a previous personal relationship with, was not a smart move. Awkward enough to be dating your student, but now you have to go and teach your ex on a daily basis? Awkward.
The real question that's on everyone's minds after that not-so-gentle let down is, »

On the midseason winter premiere of Chicago Med, we examine the idea of faith. Everyone on staff has faith in each other because of the demands of the job, but having faith in their patients isn’t always as easy. Sometimes it’s because of lack of commitment to their health, other times it’s because of fundamental differences between doctor and patient. In order for doctor-patient relationships to establish trust, it’s important to find a way to get over these differences. This is where faith comes in. It’s a New Year, so why not try for more faith and understanding? On the

Natalie just couldn't catch a break on Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 9 and it doesn't look like things will get easier anytime soon.
Of course she isn't the only one having a rough time -- it wouldn't be Gaffney Medical if the staff's personal lives were smooth sailing. April is facing one hell of an uphill battle in the second half of the season, and Dr. Charles' relationship with his daughter is developing at a glacial pace.
At least it looks like there's hope for some of our docs. Ethan keeps pushing himself to grow as a person, and Sarah's still excitedly quoting psych textbooks. Thank god it's not doom and gloom for everyone!
Natalie's patient Ted got me right in the feels. It was just such a tragic case for everyone. Even without the morbidity and mortality review, Ted was going to haunt Natalie.
It wasn't even his intriguing medical case that got me, »

Crossovers are old hat for the Chicago shows. While The CW's growing slate of superheroes or the many crime solvers on Fox may only cross-pollinate for an episode or two during sweeps, Chicago franchise fans know it's nearly (if not actually) a weekly occurrence on Dick Wolf's ever-expanding empire of Windy City-set shows. When a victim from Chicago Fire is brought to the hospital, one of Chicago Med's regular residents is usually there to greet the person. When the police or an ambulance brings in a patient to Chicago Med, it's usually someone from P.D. or Fire, respectively, who is »
