Soooo....am I the only one still trying to figure out what headlines any of these stories were supposed to be "ripped" from?
The storylines might not have lived up to the Wolfsian hype, but Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 10 managed to deliver some more thought provoking stories than usual.
Oh, sure, plotting still conformed to the standard formula: Doctors encounter an effed up situation, struggle to put aside their personal feelings, are completely unable to do so, and some how find a moral victory even though they ignored basically all ethic of medicine.
But at least that formula has finally been acknowledged. If a show is going to be predictable, it should at least be meta about it.
Now the writers just need to acknowledge their ridiculous obsession with pregnancy related cases.
I realize that this is distasteful for all of us, but I implore both of you to do your best not to let your personal feelings interfere with the care of this patient or the law.

Will has improved markedly since the first season, but to say that he's far ahead of other men in realizing that "women are tough" is just pure and utter nonsense.
Let's face it, Will is totally the guy who doesn't understand the fuss about the #metoo movement, who doesn't see that harassment and abuse exists on a spectrum, who scoffs at the mention of microaggressions.
Will, I'm fine. Just please don't do that. Don't make unilateral decisions on my behalf, okay?

Added: February 28, 2018 Using the despicable child raping reverend as a mirror for his behavior and then excusing Will of all his sins because he's not that bad is perverse. Not as bad as the other guy is not the same as being supportive and respecting Natalie's autonomy.
The fact that Will has only started to grow and understand the plight of women and the strength of women since he started dating Natalie is another thing that irks me.
It's basically buying into BS "I have daughters" platitude we hear from politicians and so other men in the public sphere when they denounce harassment, assault, and general misogyny.
Will: She's just a kid, Nat.
Nat: She's tough. Women are tough. Tougher than you think.
Will: I guess I have a lot to learn about this kind of stuff.

And why did the writers have to validate Will's overbearing behavior by actually giving Nat a concuss..
