Chicago Med dealt with broken relationships in It May Not Be Forever. Find out what happened in our Chicago Med season 5, episode 14 recap.

This week’s Chicago Med was not an episode for hopeless romantics. Rather, it showed us a bunch of relationships that were unhealthy for one reason or another, and at least one thing you should not do in a hospital.

Wednesday’s episode “It May Not Be Forever” saw Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) and Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) trying to handle a case of suspected spousal abuse, and to work better together the next time around.

Meanwhile, Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) tried to extend an olive branch to the addict doctor who’d been threatening to end his career, and it didn’t go well.

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


Chicago Med once again shows us Will at the safe injection site, where Dr. Hannah Asher (recurring guest star Jessy Schram) shows up to remind him of what she’s hanging over his head – and because she needs another fix. Will badgers her until she agrees to go to a meeting the next day, and then she’s all awkward smiles and thanking him instead. What?

It’s no surprise that Hannah fails to show for the meeting the next morning. When Will sees her at work and confronts her, she quips that he’s “stalking” her. Apparently she’s got mood swings, too.

Round the halfway point, Chicago Med has Will see Hannah treating another patient. So what’s he going to do about her? Not much, because he goes back to the safe injection site and tells the supervisor he’s quitting, in the vaguest terms ever. “I think my leaving will protect you,” he says, not the first time he’s been in that situation.

That night Will and Hannah meet at Molly’s, where Will informs her that he quit, so she no longer has anything to hold over him. That’s a bit like telling the serial killer you know where the bodies are buried. Realizing she’s got no leverage, Hannah implodes. Will insists that he cares about her, for whatever reason, and she agrees to turn herself in. But will she?

And then she invites him back to her place, because that’s exactly what both of them need right now. Not.

April and Choi

Our favorite engaged couple meets a pair of overly affectionate newlyweds. The wife has a bizarre rash that looks like it’s related to some kind of allergy. And the second time Chicago Med puts them on our screens, they’re having sex in the treatment room. Did no one notice this? No one heard anything?!

On the third time we see them, the wife is in anaphylactic shock. “What caused this?” her husband demands, and nobody says anything. You’d think Chicago Med could have thrown a brief line in there to give him, and us, even the vaguest idea of what’s going on. But when Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) finds out about the, um, interlude, the lightbulb goes on for him: this might be related to her husband!

Some tests later, we find out that the wife is actually allergic to her husband’s semen. We’re going to give you a second to let the gross and uncomfortable feeling pass. But the bottom line is these two will want to stock up on condoms. And April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) decides this is the appropriate time to tell Choi she doesn’t feel that they have a sex life. This is all just way too much information. At least Choi takes the hint and greets April at home with a romantic dinner.
