Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 22 Assessment: And Now We Come to the Finish

Every part went up in smoke. LIterally.

Chicago Med Season 7 Episode 22 provided one in every of its trademark huge cliffhangers s the season drew to a detailed. Sadly, this one implies that we’re caught with this silly Milena/Scott plotline some time longer as soon as Med returns within the fall.

Med at all times goes for these big season-ending cliffhangers. We at all times fade to black as somebody faces life-threatening hazard, and as a rule, it includes Will.

We’ll get a crossover look from our favourite Chicago Hearth characters when Med returns within the fall, if we’re fortunate. In any case, somebody has to place out this blaze and save our heroes’ lives!

Nonetheless, this cliffhanger was pointless when a lot else was happening that was extra compelling.

The undercover storyline isn’t almost as attention-grabbing because the extra extraordinary drama of Marcel and Blake being on the outs over the choice he made for her whereas she was unconscious or Vanessa assembly her organic father for the primary time.

This storyline has grow to be increasingly unbelievable, and this cliffhanger was the worst of it.

Not solely did somebody set the constructing on hearth, most probably on objective, however a goon tried to take Milena out and bought shot himself whereas she was wandering round injured, and Will and Scott had been caught within the blaze.

So many loopy issues occurred in that scene that it felt like a parody of intense cliffhangers. Discuss over-the-top!

It is a disgrace that the season finale needed to finish on such a ridiculous be aware. The remainder of the hour concerned satisfying storylines and attention-grabbing dilemmas.

Choi resolved his conflicted emotions about not understanding his father was homosexual, each by encouraging Zach to forgive his dads for not wanting him to play lacrosse and by giving the honorary flag the army gave him to Gerald, his father’s secret lover.

The scene between Choi and Gerald was brief however efficient. Gerald did not say a phrase when Choi gave him that flag, and neither did Archer, who was standing close by, watching.

That one motion was deeply symbolic on so many alternative ranges. Choi acknowledged and honored his father’s life accomplice and made his peace with not understanding Gerald existed whereas his father was alive, whereas Gerald responded with grace.

That second of acceptance meant so much to Gerald and confirmed therapeutic and development on Choi’s half. Effectively executed!

Choi and Archer’s case was one of many extra minor storylines, however it was an efficient catalyst for issues to return.

Each Maggie and Archer reached out to folks that they had not contacted in years after Erin forgave her mom sufficient to take a seat by her bedside whereas her mother lay dying.

Peter: I am simply making an attempt to guard him. You do perceive?
Archer: I perceive. However talking from private expertise, typically the urge to guard can do extra hurt than good.

Archer has spoken earlier than of his estranged son and even suggested Peter to not make the identical errors he did. I am keen to fulfill this man! Let’s hope he turns up on the hospital subsequent season.

As for Maggie, let’s hope that reopening the door to Grant is not an enormous mistake. Whereas it was necessary for Vanessa to get to know her organic father, it looks like she could have opened Pandora’s field right here.

Grant did not appear to know or care that Maggie is fortunately married. He seemed to be simply as smitten with Maggie as once they conceived Vanessa. That is undoubtedly going to result in hassle someplace down the road, particularly since Maggie modified the topic as an alternative of setting him straight.

Charles’ analysis of Scott and Maggie’s affected person appeared like an afterthought. It is too dangerous we did not have that on-screen, which could have been emotional.

As a substitute, most of his display time was dedicated to his bizarre relationship with Lonnie. I am glad that he broke issues off together with her. No matter what she may need thought she was doing, she spoke to him like she was his therapist.

That is not a wholesome foundation for a romantic relationship. Her makes an attempt to say that Charles’ wholesome determination to interrupt issues off was because of his “worry of intimacy” that she “anticipated to return up” felt manipulative.

Remedy college students, take be aware: this entire mess is why relationship a former affected person is a horrible concept, even should you’ve waited a yr after terminating remedy.

Will and Asher’s affected person offered one of many extra attention-grabbing moral dilemmas the collection has had. Whereas Julia was bodily wonderful and will endure the transplant surgical procedure, Asher was proper that she deserved to know the reality earlier than making any such dedication.

You’d threat a child’s life as a result of he cannot promise everlasting love?


Will was additionally proper that Owen would die and not using a new kidney, and Julia was an ideal match. Nonetheless, it might have been horrible for Owen to interrupt up with Julia after he already had her kidney in his physique.

Asher made an impression on Owen when she talked to him in regards to the that means of Julia’s sacrifice, and I am glad she did. Julia made an knowledgeable option to go forward with the surgical procedure regardless that Owen had been stringing her alongside for manner too lengthy, and that would not have occurred if Asher hadn’t satisfied him to inform her the reality.

In the meantime, Marcel and Blake’s drama was considerably predictable, however the jury’s nonetheless out on whether or not Blake can function once more.

If bodily remedy restores her expertise, she could forgive him finally. In any other case, it is most likely over for these two.

And eventually, Sharon’s daughter had her child! The commercial made it appear like this could be a central a part of the episode, however Tara did not even seem till the final fifteen minutes of the hour.

Nonetheless, she gave delivery to a wholesome and lovable child boy, even when she needed to ship on prime of a restaurant desk. Tara is true — she could have fairly the story to inform the toddler when he is older!
