What should fans watch for in tonight’s Chicago Med? Get ready for In the Name of Love with our Chicago Med season 5, episode 18 preview.

Tonight’s Chicago Med is giving the medical drama a back seat to the relationship drama that has finally boiled over inside our favorite hospital.

“In the Name of Love” picks up after the 100th’s episode‘s big wedding and the answering of a few big questions. So where is everyone supposed to go from here? While we don’t know if there may be a small time jump between episodes, we do know things are kind of a mess.

Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) still needs to deal with his anger after finding out that his fiancee April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) kissed his colleague Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains).

Neither Choi nor April are listed in NBC’s official description of this episode, which may not bode well for them. Does it just mean that Chexton is not a focus this week—or does it mean that Choi is still avoiding April so much that there’s nothing to say?

Plus, will Choi face any professional repercussions for getting physical with Crockett in the middle of the hospital? It didn’t seem like it last week, but one would think there ought to be some consequences for what is technically assault.

Crockett, meanwhile, is working again with Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto). This will obviously go better than their last case together, since that involved them being kidnapped and Natalie fearing that Crockett had been shot and killed. But she had quite a strong reaction to his apparent death, and then got snippy when she found out about him and April. So what exactly is her opinion on him now? And will it color the way that they work together professionally?

Between Choi being mad at him, April now avoiding him and Natalie being whatever she’s going to be, Crockett is definitely short on friends around the hospital. It doesn’t seem to bother him, but is that the truth or is he hiding behind the bravado? And what does that mean for Chicago Med fans, who can’t really get to know this guy if he just keeps getting thrown from one drama to the next?

In other news, “In the Name of Love” sees Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) having his judgment questioned again. In fairness, Will often has terrible judgment because he’s quick to get involved emotionally. And he’s already gotten sued once, way back in the first season. So is there going to be a point where Will becomes a liability for the hospital—or himself?

It seems unlikely, since he’s the Everyman of this series that fans know and love; it wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense to get him fired or tied up in court with a huge debacle. But we’ll have to see how far this episode, and really this season, are going to push him. He’s taken a lot of punches in the last two seasons particularly, and you’d have to think there’s a point where it’s just going to be enough.
