Talk about divided loyalties!
Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 8 positioned Charles and Scott in a hard blot when a policeman threatened to harm his sergeant, while Maggie also made a difficult, potentially career-ending choice.
The high-pitched ventures started for fascinating television that’s sure to keep everyone talking until the next brand-new Chicago Med airs.
Scott’s struggled with divided loyalties since he first came to Chicago Med, and this was no different.
In this case, though, it wasn’t Scott’s patient that constructed him question everything. It was his friend. That work it even more difficult.
As Charles said, it was hard for Scott to see that Joe was decompensating because he was too close to him. But there was also another angle.
Scott had been immersed in manly, blustery police culture for a very long time, so much better so that he was certain Joe couldn’t perhaps planned what he said.
I’m not sure which is more of a number of problems: policeman culture includes casual invokes to violence or so much stigma adjacent patrolmen coming cure that Charles considered NOT reporting a clear threat to an individual.
The two seem tied together. The machoism and blustery culture among cops started it hard for Joe to get help at all, and his only interest in talking to Charles was that he thought it would get his wife to take him back.
And Charles had done a great job of structure rapport with Joe, extremely, merely to have to throw it all down the toilet because of his duty to warn Joe’s sergeant about the potential threat.
Joe wreaked some of that on himself. He refused to answer when Charles asked him what he implied about making materials into his own hands and ran away from the session altogether.
If he’d refuted Charles’ questions candidly and had been “just talking, ” there’d ought to have good-for-nothing to report.
But even before Joe criticized Charles with a razor blade, he’d been acting suspiciously and ended up in the hospital in the first place because he got into a fight at the bar.
So it shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone that he’d try to attack Charles — in fact, Chicago Med should have anticipated it and blamed more protection to Charles until Joe was found.
Scott learned his lesson, but how will this attack affect Charles? Will he react like his colleague Iggy Fromme over on New Amsterdam, or will he take it all in stride, as if this is just part of a day’s work at the hospital?
Meanwhile, Will played hookey from work to help Stevie out.
Stevie: I’m going to try to track down her[ Terri’s] friend Misty, parties from the encampment. See if they’ve seen her.Will: How about I go with you? I have a five-hour pharm Zoom where I won’t be missed.Stevie: I can handle it.Will: I’m sure you can, but everyone can use a little backup. Even the Hammer.Stevie: You announce me that again, I leave you on the curb.

I’m not sure sneak out of a mandatory satisfy is a good idea, but it stirred the patch labour, so whatever.
I figured their accident would bring Stevie and Will closer together. I expected him to end up going on a year with her , not with the VAS-COM rep!
Anyway, thank goodness that Terri wasn’t in the treat mansion with other passed-out people.
I was expected she would be and that Stevie would struggle with guilt over having made her mother’s relapse( or worse, her death !). Her unearned guilt over having ever left Terri was more psychological because it wasn’t as predictable.
Thank you, Chicago Med, for that.
Terri and Stevie’s story seems to have come to a natural culminate, but has it? Terri has all sorts of health issues that she likely won’t pay proper attention to while on the road, so she could end up back at Med sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, Maggie and Vanessa made progress in their mom/ daughter relationship, but at what price?
Maggie could have lost her racket for the assistance Vanessa cover up her drug use, and there’s no guarantee the urine dilution will work, either.
And while she used her assist as leveraging to make Vanessa to stop make Adderall, will Vanessa find it that easy to quit?
It seemed like there was an easier answer now. Some hospices have a program where employees won’t be penalise for substance abuse if they agree to get help and keep clean.
If Maggie had timed Vanessa in the direction of such assistance, it might have been a strong PSA for any real-life physicians who were fight with drug addiction.
Instead, Maggie gambled her occupation, with no guarantees that Vanessa would be able to stop using. That didn’t strike me as the best solution to any of this.
At least Vanessa had a panic attack rather than overdosing! Cooper’s overdose was enough.
The topic of direct/ animation equilibrium continues to predominate Chicago Med, as it should.
Marcel has always been big-hearted on take transgress as needed, and Blake’s demeanour was ridiculous.
Marcel: Sorry I couldn’t scrub in last darknes. Blake: You missed the possibilities of of a lifetime.Marcel: I figured if I can’t drive, I shouldn’t do surgery.Blake: I ponder I made a miscalculation. I thought you were committed to this program.Marcel: I am.Blake: Not to the fullest extent that you prioritize it over drinking and partying.Marcel: With all respect, I wasn’t on call last-place night.Blake: When you work with me, consider yourself on call 24/7. If you want to shadow me that’s what you do. If that doesn’t work for you, let me know, preferably sooner than last-minute. I dislike to squander my time.

Leaving aside that he went out with her daughter, which creates an ethical quagmire that’ll probably come back to burn him last-minute, Marcel had every write to relax with a sip on his night off.
He can’t placed his life on hold just in case there’s a surgery Blake craves him for. That’s unreasonable.
Marcel was also liberty that it’s Archer’s task to intervene if physicians are overworking themselves.
Archer’s “tough marine” attitude did Choi no praises. It was likewise a departure from the norm, which usually involves Archer stopping some doctor from doing some experimental procedure that turns out to be in the patient’s best interest.
Choi saw the best choice for individual patients but relinquished his own health in the process. If Archer believed this was a superior procedure, he could have assigned another doctor to get it on since Choi couldn’t.
