Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) was looking for a new apartment, having failed to reconcile with Natalie. He and Connor handled victims brought in from the street fair, including a young woman who had just been accepted to Northwestern and her understandably hysterical mom. The girl was braindead, which gave Connor and Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) the terrible task of breaking mom’s heart.

But in true Chicago Med fashion, the young woman’s heart could save another one of Connor’s patients, whose heart was failing fast. Unfortunately, the angry mother—having found out the motivation behind the attack—wouldn’t consent to organ donation unless her daughter’s organs went to other African-Americans. It took a plea from Goodwin to change her mind.

Will was stuck treating the driver, who had a “pharmacy in his backpack” according to Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer). One of his medications made Will realize that he had terminal cancer—but he was not aloof to his behavior. The man was a white supremacist who was trying to take out as many of “them” as he could before he died. Hence the explosives.

While the driver’s story wasn’t wrapped up more than that, Will did a good thing by adopting a dog whose owner had died in the attack.

That left Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) with Chicago Med‘s odd subplot of the week. It really wasn’t funny to see an over the top character trying to flirt with Choi; it felt ridiculous, and then it turned into forced drama when the show had to call out Choi for being uncomfortable and then used that to reveal that Terry McNeal (Colby Lewis) is gay. It was a heavy-handed subplot all the way around, and the one lowlight of an otherwise busy and tense episode.
