Tonight on Chicago Med season 2, Dr. Manning finds herself in another emotional case when she treats a young cancer patient. Also on Chicago Med 2017, Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Latham take a medical trip which puts Latham’s personality issues to the test. If you missed the last episode of Chicago Med season 2, check out my Chicago Med 2017 recap right here! Tonight’s episode of Chicago Med season 2 started off with an eight year old boy being brought in who is battling cancer and suffering from seizures. Manning thinks that his fever might be causing the seizures, but there is also a chance that the cancer has spread to his brain. Moments later, April comes in and tells Manning that the father hasn’t filled his son’s chemo meds in three months. Manning asks the father why and he tells her that his son made the decision because of how sick the meds are causing him to be stomach sick and in tons of pain.
Meanwhile, Halstead is handling a patient who is refusing care for her diabetes and a possible heart attack. When he sees Manning staring at her patient in the other room, he puts his hand on her shoulder in an attempt to let her know it will be ok. Nina sees this and as they are planning lunch and saying bye, she asks him if him and Manning ever had a thing. He denies it and tells her that the only one he has a thing for is her. Rhodes and Latham are currently out of town performing an open heart surgery on the mayor’s daughter.
Manning is having a conversation with her young cancer patient, Gabe, about a new medication and he tells her that he really doesn’t want to fight anymore. He said that everyone has their time to live and he wants to see what’s next. Halstead’s diabetic patient is having another heart attack and Robyn Charles is there to help. Halstead explains to the patient that she needs to have a stent put it and needs to be put on meds to control her diabetes. She refuses to and says that she needs to get home to her cats. Robyn asks how many cats she has and when she tells her she has 12, Robyn thinks she might know what’s causing her health issues.
She has a parasite in her brain that is from cat feces, but it also makes women want to take care of cats and causes them to be less concerned about their own well being. Halstead and Robyn go to talk to her about this. Meanwhile, Manning is talking to the father and April comes over to tell her that they need to get DCFS involved. Manning tells her that Gabe understands more about what’s going on than April understands. April tells her if she doesn’t get DCFS involved, April will. Manning tells her she will talk to Goodwin.
Meanwhile, on their trip, Rhodes and Latham are having some drinks and Latham has met up with a young woman and decides to bring her back up to his room. Later he comes downstairs and he is freaking out because the woman he was with at the bar robbed him when he went to get ice for their drinks. Rhodes tried to talk him out of taking her back to his room earlier at the bar, but Latham didn’t listen. Moments later, Rhodes goes to talk to the bartender because he knows that he had something to do with it and he gives him an hour to get the things back.
Manning gets the results from Gabe’s scans back and it shows that his tumors are actually getting smaller! Stopping the chemo has actually allowed his immune system to get stronger and his body is naturally fighting the cancer on it’s own. Unfortunately, it’s too late and DCFS is already there and they have place the father under arrest for medical neglect. Manning tells them that they don’t have to do this and that it will all be fixed. He says that whatever happens to him was worth it.
Halstead and Nina are talking and she thanks him for being honest about Manning when she asked, even though he wasn’t. She then starts admitting to dating numerous doctors in the hospital. Gabe’s infection is going away and his fever are breaking. He seems to be recovering pretty well from this whole ordeal. His aunt is sitting with him until the charges against the father are dropped. Rhodes gets all of Dr. Latham’s things back and apologizes for bringing him out there, but he actually thanks Rhodes because overall he had a great time. Robyn is spending some quality time with her father at Molly’s as we close out the episode.
