01/05/2017 (09:00PM - 10:00PM) (Thursday) : APRIL FACES A SETBACK AND DR. CHOI DEALS WITH A CASE INVOLVING TWO FIGHTERS THAT TEACHES HIM A VALUABLE LESSON ALONG THE WAY - Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) tasks Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) with evaluating a patient as a possible heart recipient, while Jeff (guest star Jeff Hephner) makes a confession to Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto). Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) deals with two MMA fighters who are brought into Chicago Med in bad shape. Elsewhere, Dr. Stohl (guest star Eddie Jemison) returns to the hospital from his sabbatical leave and immediately offers up different medical opinion regarding the treatment of a patient under the care of Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss). April (Yaya DaCosta) discovers her TB medication may lead to further complications. Marlyne Barrett, Colin Donnell and Rachel DiPillo also star. Mekia Cox also guest stars.
However, Will moving ahead – and in – with Dr. Shore hasn't kept him completely out of Natalie's orbit. In Thursday's episode, the two worked together on a case involving two feuding brothers brought together when one was in desperate need of a kidney. The catch? The other brother was HIV-positive. "It's something that they both will take away and share forever," Gehlfuss says.
It's safe to say they've come a long way from season one, when the two butted heads about patients several times. "I think the nature of his feelings got in the way," Gehlfuss says. "In an effort to move on from that, they've come to a point where they are able to work more effectively. I think they'll still always challenge each other, that will never go away, it's just how they do that and a lot of that had to do with will not allowing his feelings to get in the way of work, essentially."
Will may be doing a better job of keeping his cool in the ER, but that doesn't mean he's completely closed the door on a possible future with Natalie. "It's not a light switch. You can't just turn it back off; you don't compartmentalize those types of things. And the very nature of the proximity of them working together, certain things flare back up and you deal with them, you figure things out," he says. "I don't think that those feelings will ever go away. What will become of them, we shall see."
