Tonight on Chicago Med 2017 the staff is confused by the rapidly changing symptoms that a teen girl is experiencing. They then have a dangerous situation arise when a troubled teens comes in severe distress on Chicago Med season 2. If you missed the last episode of Chicago Med 2017, check out my Chicago Med season 2 recap right here to get all caught up!Tonight’s episode of Chicago Med season 2 started off with a camera crew following Dr. Stohl around shooting promo videos. A young man comes in with a racing heart and they connect him to the monitors. They find something weird about his vitals and after they get his heart rate normalized, they do a chest x-ray. They find that all of his organs are opposite from where they are supposed to be. Stohl comes in with the camera crew and makes Halstead looks like an idiot on camera. He does it again with another patient.
Meanwhile a woman is brought in after a car accident and while Dr. Manning is checking out the woman, her daughter, Ariel, is experiencing pain in the same area her mother’s injuries are in. Manning also finds out that when the mother complains about the ulcer she has, the daughter complains about pain in her stomach also.
A young man comes in doubled over in pain and clenching his stomach, Choi comes to talk to him to find out what’s wrong and he claims that it’s nothing. Choi can tell that the pain is being caused by something in his rectum and he is lying about the pain because he is embarrassed. After a CT Scan, Clarke finds what’s in his rear-end, it’s a revolver!
Reese needs to get in there to talk to him and his father walks in moments later. We find out that the boy was trying to smuggle it into prison for someone for protection and that father is praising him for it. The father then goes to talk to Goodwin and she calls in Choi and Reese to tell them that the procedure to remove the gun is officially on hold. The patient confessed to a crime, therefore the gun is evidence and they need to secure a warrant to retrieve it.
Halstead has an issue with a patient that Stohl discharged on camera, but Halstead had a feeling that there was more to the patient than a sinus infection. After running additional blood tests he finds that the patients white blood cells are elevated and asks Stohl for permission to have a scan done. Stohl accuses him of trying to show him up on camera. Later, the patient thanks Halstead on camera for going the extra mile for him and actually listening to him.
The scans on the patient come back and it’s not looking good, Stohl wants it all on camera when they break the news. The results of the scan show that he has a fungal infection in his brain which is going to cause him to be in the hospital for an extended period of time and if it requires surgery, there is a 90% mortality rate. While trying to treat him for the fungal infection, he starts having a seizure. Ariel and her mother are being discharged at the same time and when Ariel looks over and sees this, she starts convulsing. Dr. Charles, who spoke to her earlier and found nothing wrong with her psychologically, is now calling for her to be isolated.
Choi gets the go-ahead from the DA to have the gun removed, but Reese isn’t convinced about the story the teen gave them. They are going to remove the gun and then figure everything else out afterwards. While removing the gun, the kid gets agitated and starts moving around and as Choi is pulling it out, it goes off. The bullet goes through the kid and hits Clarke in the arm. They have to rush the kid to surgery to repair the gunshot wound. Choi is able to stitch Clarke up.
Dr. Charles talks to Ariel’s mother and he tells her about what he has confirmed as her daughter’s diagnosis. It’s called mirror touch synesthesia, which is a condition where Ariel is mirroring the pain from people around her. She isn’t imitating her mother, like she thought, she is physically feeling the pain of others. After he shares this information with her, she gets a phone call and takes it. Manning is appalled that she would do this while getting news about her daughter.
Rhodes is talking to a nurse that Latham had flipped out on earlier in the evening and is telling her that regardless of what happened, Latham always has the patients’ best interest in mind. Latham hears some of this and calls Rhodes into his office. Rhodes thinks that Latham is going to be upset, but he actually tells Rhodes that he agrees with everything he heard Rhodes say and then admits to being diagnosed with aspergers. He also admits to being uncomfortable with the heart surgery they are doing on the man with his organs on the opposite side of his body and asks Rhodes if he can count on him in this surgery. After the surgery, Rhodes invites Latham for drinks, but he tells him that he doesn’t drink at bars and smiles. Rhodes tells him that they will figure something out another time then.
Halstead and Stohl go to Goodwin’s office after Halstead has an issue with his patient’s privacy being violated for the filming of their promo. Tells Goodwin that he convinced the patient to sign the release and she tells him to go give the patient the option to rip it up if he wants to. The patient tells Halstead that he hasn’t made an impression on many people and if he can do it in his last moments, he is all for them using the video they shot.
Reese goes back to talk to the teen who is recovering from the bullet wound and she tells him that she didn’t buy his story. He tells her that he would rather go to prison than allow his father to think that he is some kind of freak. Manning is talking to Ariel’s mom who is very upset that she has been causing her daughter’s physical and emotional pain and Manning tells her that if Ariel sees happiness, she will be happy, but if she is constantly anxious around her, than Ariel is going to continue to be anxious as well. The mother goes in and gives her daughter a hug and sits with her.
We end the episode off with Latham showing up at Molly’s to have drinks with Rhodes and the rest of the crew and you can tell he is uneasy about it, but Rhodes helps him get comfortable with the idea pretty quickly.
