Are two Chicago Med doctors going to have a falling-out in this week’s episode?

“So Many Things We’ve Kept Buried” includes Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) running afoul of Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) again when they don’t agree on how to treat Will’s latest patient.

Since the two have already butted heads once in season 6—when Will felt his clinical trial pitch was more important than working extra time in the Emergency Department—how much worse is their conflict going to be a second time?

Will has basically been doing his own thing all season, largely focused on success in his clinical trial (and a flirtation with drug company rep Dr. Sabeena Virani). Choi was not happy with him before; it stands to reason that he’s going to be even more unhappy if Will defies him again.

It’d be nice to see Choi lay down some consequences; he may be the new ED chief, but we haven’t seen him discipline anybody. He’s snapped a lot but as Dr. Dean Archer (recurring guest star Steven Weber) pointed out in the most recent episode, Chicago Med seems to enforce some rules and not others. At some point Ethan will have to mete out some discipline.

It’s strange that this is the guy who twice started a fight with Dr. Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) last season (even punching him once), so he’s got no problem with confrontations—but now that he’s in charge he’s not really brought the hammer down. Could Will’s attitude finally make Choi do something more severe?

Someone who might also have a problem is Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson). The synopsis for this episode claims she institutes a policy change that ruffles some feathers. But Goodwin is a bit of a figurehead at this point; she slaps people on the wrist, but again, there aren’t any massive consequences. At least two doctors should have been fired already this season and she didn’t even suspend them.

So what is this rule, why did she change it, and will it actually be enforced? Or is this just a thing for this particular episode and everyone will forget about it afterward? The hospital deserves to have more discipline and the show would benefit from that as well. This episode is a good time for that—watch and see if it happens.
