Will and Natalie

Will returned to the hospital with a much shorter fuse, after moving out of the home he’d shared with Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) at the end of the previous episode. Natalie confronted him about his attitude; Will didn’t want to talk to anyone, while Natalie wished he’d talk to her.

His first patient was a surrogate pregnant with twins, and Will was concerned about the health of the male fetus. Tests proved that the fetus’s abdominal organs had migrated into his chest, and if that wasn’t bad enough, his situation was also threatening the health of his unborn sister. Will’s advice was to “selectively reduce” one fetus to save the other.

But the surrogate wasn’t willing to give up her baby, even against medical advice and the wishes of the children’s parents. A lawyer was called, who threatened Celine with breach of contract; Will objected, saying that it was Celine’s body and therefore her choice. That prompted the parents to ask for a new doctor—and Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) was happy to oblige.

Despite being thrown off the case, Will came up with a third option: a surgical procedure that may save both babies, but could kill Celine, who nonetheless gave her consent. The risky option worked perfectly, with mom and children okay, but Goodwin ordered Will into mandatory counseling.

Meanwhile, Natalie and Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) took on an elderly patient with Alzheimer’s Disease. Their tests revealed a likely overdose on thyroid medication. Was it a suicide attempt? Dr. Charles was convinced that someone was slowly overdosing her, and that something wasn’t right with the patient’s daughter Alana.

An MRI revealed that Alana was experiencing early onset Alzheimer’s herself; it was her who was forgetting to give her mom the proper medication and accidentally overdosing her! But with the case closed, attention shifted back to Manstead, as Will was easily able to deduce that Natalie was the one who’d told on him.
