On tonight’s episode of Chicago Med 2017, April gets called into work on her night off and Tate pressures her into slowing down because of her pregnancy and the TB medications. He doesn’t want her to add any unnecessary stress to her and the baby. Also on Chicago Med season 2, Dr. Rhodes has to operate on a mystery patient! Find out all the details of tonight’s episode of Chicago Med season 2 right here and if you missed last week’s Chicago Med 2017, check out my recap right here! Tonight’s episode of Chicago Med season 2 started off with Dr. Choi trying to resuscitate a drive by victim, unfortunately he wasn’t able to bring him back. After he comes out of the room, Maggie tells him that Goodwin wants to talk to him about his request. He is requesting to do some kind of procedure on a high profile patient. She ok’s it, but tells him to keep it under wraps and that everyone involved is going to have to sign an non-disclosure.
Meanwhile, Halstead is taking on another shift to pay for his malpractice premiums and Manning says maybe it will be an easy night. He tells her not to jinx it, I’m pretty sure she did because moments later, three teens come in and they are all having adverse reactions to something they took. Seizures and extreme agitation with all of them.
Meanwhile, Dr. Charles is talking to Dr. Latham and having him watch a video of two women who are talking and one reveals that she is dating the other woman’s boyfriend. When the one asks the other if she minds, she tells her that she didn’t, but it was sarcastic. Latham is unable to tell this though and Dr. Charles tells him that he thinks that Latham’s self diagnosis of aspergers is probably correct.
Choi’s mystery patient comes in and needs a cardiothoracic surgeon but Latham is in surgery and Rhodes isn’t on call, but Goodwin tells Choi to call Rhodes in and tell him it’s an emergency. When Rhodes gets there he find out that his patient isn’t what he, or anyone, expected. He is going to be performing heart surgery on a panda! Apparently Choi volunteers at the zoo in his spare time and Goodwin is pushing for this for a few reasons. One, the US rents pandas from the Chinese for one million dollars a year because, well, people love pandas and if they can pull this off, there will be tons of donations coming there way to save countless human lives. Secondly, she found out that there are only 2000 pandas left in the world.
April gets called in because they are swamped and Tate is less than thrilled about this because of her being pregnant and having TB, but she insists that she is ok. They have a slight argument and she tells him that she will see him in the morning. Rhodes is doing a procedure on the panda, but while doing it her blood pressure starts to drop and her heart starts to race so they have to do something else to try and slow her heart back down. He is able to get her stable enough to continue his procedure.
Robin is outside the procedure room watching the panda procedure when her father walks by and makes small talk. He tells her to have a good time at the charity event, but she stops him and asks him if he wants to have coffee seeing how she is going to be there a while. They have a nice conversation and see to be making amends for the past.
Dr. Reese has been called to pronounce patients and break the news to their families and when she gets one of Latham’s patients, the nurses tell her that it’s because he isn’t very good with human interaction. He walks in moments after Reese goes in and when the nurses play it off like they just didn’t want to bother him, Reese calls them out. He pulls Reese aside and asks her what that was all about and she tells him that the nurses didn’t call him because they don’t think he is good with emotional distraught people. He thanks her for being honest with him and walks away.
The teens from earlier that came in on some kind of drug are not doing well at all. They ran a tox screen, but nothing came up so they are just treating them for the standard overdose. One of them is in a medically induced coma because she won’t stop seizing, one is in renal failure and the third is also in a coma and may not wake up. One of the doctors working on this case gets really upset when he finds all this out and Halstead notices that there is something more to it. He is drunk at work.
The panda is still having an issue with her heart stabilizing, her blood pressure is low but her heart rate is twice it’s supposed to be. Halstead goes to check on the drunk doctor and tells him to sober up in the on call room and gives him hope that he hasn’t lost his job here but if it happens again, it will be the end of his career.
Meanwhile, Reese gets a page about her patient who was brought in earlier with pneumonia. They are trying to resuscitate her as Reese walks in. She has had to call so many deaths tonight that this one pushes her over the edge and she breaks down on her way out of the room.
Latham decides he wants to go through a special therapy for the aspergers and after Dr. Charles shows him the video of the girls again and he is able to pick up on the sarcasm. The panda is brought out of sedation and she is doing really well now that her heart has stabilized. Reese goes to see Charles about all the patients that she called time of death on and she breaks down. Tells him she wants to do therapy, she can’t handle any of this and she is afraid that she is going to disappoint him. she starts crying hysterically and he just gives her a hug and tries to comfort her.
We end the episode off with the panda being brought back to the zoo for all the visitors to see and she is doing great!
