One Chicago’s most burning questions for Feb. 10, 2021.

What are the biggest takeaways from One Chicago this week?

With every new episode of Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD there’s usually something to talk about, whether it’s character development, a big plot twist, or a element of the show that leaves fans confused.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers for this week’s installments of Chicago Med, Chicago PD, and Chicago Fire.

Here are the three biggest talking points from this week’s One Chicago episodes—let us know your thoughts on each question in the comments.

Chicago Med: Is Will’s ego getting the better of him?

In “Don’t Want To Face This Now” viewers saw Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) once again chafing under his new boss’s authority. When his massive presentation to show off his clinical trial results conflicted with Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) needing additional help in the ED, Will prioritized the presentation first.

Then after Choi called him out on it, Will decided that he’d take Dr. Sabeena Virani (recurring guest star Tehmina Sunny) up on her offer to meet with her boss at the drug company about potentially leaving the ED to focus on clinical trials instead.

It seems unlikely that will actually happen—it’d be difficult to keep Nick Gehlfuss on the show if Will did have a change of focus—but it’s not a great look. It’s clear that Will’s grasping for anything to hold onto right now after breaking up with Dr. Hannah Asher (Jessy Schram) and finding out that he wasn’t even considered for promotion at Chicago Med. The clinical trial is the one place where he feels valued, and he’s getting plenty of praise from Dr. Virani besides.

Yet he’s starting to become a different person. We’ve seen him make a backroom deal to pay off another doctor just to get the patients he needed (although he initially said no), and now he’s got tunnel vision when it comes to anything that gets between him and the trial. Let’s hope that he doesn’t go so far in trying to succeed that Will forgets who he is.
