Our Chicago Med season 6 prognosis for April Sexton

It would be genuinely shocking if Chicago Med does not have Choi take April back sometime early next season. She’s still hung up on him, and though he didn’t say it to her in the season finale, he did tell the guy holding him hostage about how he’d messed up their relationship. So Choi still has feelings for her as well, and more importantly, the writers have deemed this their new major ship. They won’t just let it fade away.

But what’s going to make the third time around different from the first? Or the second? Making a love triangle with Marcel also made a complete mess of Chexton, and it really had nothing to do with Crockett. He was the penny that dropped to expose April’s immaturity and indecision, and Choi’s wanting a lot more, a lot faster than she was ready to give. These two have issues to work out, and big ones that will affect their future. The show should not skip over those discussions just to get them back together.

A baby probably needs to be set by the wayside. April is clearly not ready for one emotionally, no matter what either of them want, and what exactly would the show do with one anyway? It can barely remember that Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) has a young son. So season 6 would be a great year to slow down Chexton’s relationship, let them work their issues out, and focus on April in other ways—as a nurse, as a friend, as a sister to Noah (recurring guest star Roland Buck III). When she is more secure in herself, her romance with Choi will be stronger, too.
