Chicago Med’s relationship drama became everyone’s drama this week. Find out what happened in our Chicago Med season 4, episode 13 recap.

This week’s Chicago Med episode was one of the show’s most dramatic. The personal lives of One Chicago’s doctors and nurses normally have a lot going on, but this week all of their issues spilled out into the hospital.

Wednesday’s installment “Ghosts in the Attic” involved all three of the show’s ships having some kind of conflict. The one constant was that their disagreements ended up affecting their work and that’s never a good thing.

Meanwhile, one character faced the cops and another made a shocking decision that will upend their relationship for the second time this season. So who had the worst day at the office? Well, that’s a matter of debate.

Choi and April

“Ghosts in the Attic” saw another professional disagreement between Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) and April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta), and this one was worse.

Choi’s case of the week was immediately ominous. One of the nurses panicked when he saw the patient, and Choi couldn’t figure out why—April closed the curtain in his face rather than tell him what Hank’s problem was. Even when he pressed, she said only that the other nurse “wasn’t feeling well,” which was an obvious fib. That was more than a little unprofessional.

That left Choi working with med student Terry Lewis (returning guest star Colby Lewis), because all of the nurses decided they weren’t going to work on his patient. That’s because, as Monique finally said, the patient was a child molester—he’d raped Hank when the nurse was a boy. Chicago Med was doing another sex offender storyline.

Choi confronted April about withholding care to a patient, and the hospital’s ethical obligation to treat him like anyone else. An angry April warned him she’d only provide “the bare minimum” of treatment, so Choi told her to avoid the patient altogether. But she was suspiciously there when the man crashed and promptly died.

Did April kill him? That’s what Choi believed after he found four doses of epinephrine in the trash when there should have only been one. He brought his suspicions to April, who came up with all kinds of other excuses before finally saying all she’d done was give the man a glass of water. What would Choi put on his official paperwork?

Welcome back Dr. Nina Shore (Patti Murin), who did a huge favor for Choi by finding that a tumor caused the elevated epinephrine levels. April was innocent, but that didn’t mean she forgave Choi. When he asked if they could still work together and be friends, she replied that she wasn’t sure she wanted him as a friend.
