Chicago Med featured vampires and hookups in Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings. Find out what happened in our Chicago Med season 5, episode 7 recap.

This week’s Chicago Med was an episode that was truly all over the place.

Wednesday’s episode “Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings” saw Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) team up to treat a young man who thought he was a vampire, but was really just an impressionable kid with a broken heart.

Meanwhile, one character had an impulsive hookup and don’t look now, but there might be another Manstead love triangle on the horizon, just one week after we got rid of Phillip.

Click through this slideshow to find out what happened in the latest Chicago Med episode for each of your favorite characters, starting with:

April and Choi

Chicago Med opens for the second week in a row with a domestic moment between Chexton, who are still talking about a baby. Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) even has April Sexton’s (Yaya DaCosta) fertility calendar posted on their fridge, which April thinks is a bit much. She’s not wrong.

The two get to work and treat an Army soldier who shows off a high-tech prosthetic arm wired directly to her nervous system. The problem is she also has an infection. The other problem is that she went AWOL to attend her sister’s wedding so the Army is looking for her.

Though she requests privacy, Choi calls her military doctor anyway. When he tells April that the doctor is coming to the hospital, April is angry, but Choi replies that he needs the input of the other doctor to treat her properly. April is not buying what he’s selling and calls him “a little overzealous when it comes to the military.”

Unsurprisingly, the military police show up instead of the doctor. They have no interest in letting Choi treat her, even as she’s crashing and in need of surgery, because they’ve already called a helicopter and heaven forbid they have to wait. Enter Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), who tells them to get a court order. That’s this show’s favorite phrase right now.

The court order comes through within apparently minutes, so Choi has to stall the helicopter while Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) does the surgery. Once he’s finished, Choi allows the Army to take custody of the patient—who, being sedated, won’t have any idea what’s going on until she wakes up in a new place. April reminds Choi that this didn’t have to happen.

At the party, Crockett tries to kiss April, who takes way too long to walk away, even though both of them should know that she isn’t single. What the ever-loving heck? But at least Choi apologizes to April and the two hug it out.
