Will and Natalie

Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) is surprised to see Phillip (Ian Harding) show up at the hospital with her son and his daughter. Of course, Chicago Med throws in this supposed to be cute moment so Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) can just happen to walk out and be jealous of it.

Will decides this would thus be a good time to talk to his former fiancee about a new injury rehabilitation program the hospital is testing upstairs. She agrees to get more details but that might be just to shut him up.

Natalie treats a young woman with a second-degree burn on her leg, but in true Chicago Med fashion it’s more than that. She consults with Will, who points out that the drug listed on the chart isn’t the one Natalie just told him she used. She claims she simply misspoke, but Will isn’t convinced. He later offers to take over the case, and when she says no, he tells her he’s taking over whether she likes it or not. The girl’s parents want her away from their daughter.

Will has Natalie telling him to stop being obsessed with her getting her memory back (he is) and then he has to walk into Phillip again when the other man comes back to the ED. And then Chicago Med makes him look even more wrong when Natalie’s mistake turns out to be the thing that leads to the girl’s proper diagnosis.

But Will holds the line, saying he’s going to oversee all of Natalie’s cases until he’s sure she’s okay. She claims that he doesn’t have the authority; he replies that he’ll take the issue to Lanik and Goodwin if he has to. “Why do I feel like you’re punishing me for something else?” she responds before she goes off with Phillip.
