CHICAGO MED — “What You See Isn’t Always What You Get” Episode 816 — Pictured: (l-r) Steven Weber as Dean Archer, Randy Flagler as Capp, Adam Stephenson as Quentin Bell — (Photo by: George Burns Jr/NBC)

Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: Okay, well that MRI pinning was something out of nightmares. And even though I knew it was coming (thanks promo photos and promos), it still made me gasp and cringe. Ow. Terrible. Nightmare situation. But I loved seeing the FIRE guys there.

And, wow, cannot overstate how great Nellie was in this episode…including her explaining why, despite her doubts, she was going to stay at the hospital. I hope she sticks around on MED for a while.

THE MASKED SINGER: I feel bad when I don’t know the stars, but I just don’t know the wrestling world. I’m glad it seemed they were excited for her! And bummed Holly Robinson Peete was voted out, because she was great.

CHICAGO FIRE: The Severide conversations feel extremely bittersweet, because it feels very open-ended when that situation will be resolved on-screen. I’m glad Stella acknowledged they went through a similar thing last year with her break, but it’s hard to see her struggle with them being apart. (Even though we know they’re visiting each other/texting.) But I am so glad Stella is being such a support for Cruz, who has had to de facto step into Severide’s role for the time being. Their friendship is so great.

Absolutely cried at Trudy and Cindy. Cried at Herrmann’s reaction when he saw Cindy, post-makeover. Cried at it all. I can’t wait for Cindy to get her all-clear party.

I will admit to being worried about Carver getting too invested. Giving a family cash to get out of a bad situation is very, very, very kind, but…I hope it doesn’t backfire.

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: Gary reconciling with his aunt was surprisingly powerful, given she wasn’t a real obvious thing we knew needed resolution. But given his struggles with his heritage, his name, and who he was, it was lovely to get additional context to that now that he has a son of his own.

I’m less invested in Eddie’s friendship with Nicole. (And I’m worried they’re going to try and develop it into a romance.) Given he just got Charlie back (for a visit), I really would have rather explored what that relationship was like. Parenting via a screen, across an entire ocean, is very different than having to parent a real toddler. It’s not that I needed drama within that family unit, but I would have rather seen him exploring that than lice (?!) and having to explain to his daughter that, yeah, he used to be able to walk.

CHICAGO P.D.: First of all, this was a gorgeously shot episode. I think Jesse Lee Soffer did a great job at making it feel really CPD-y, but also fresh.

Look, Voight should have disclosed what was going on–you’d think knowing a juror was threatened would have added additional charges to the ongoing case against Morales. But…I also don’t know if the woman would have survived.

I’m glad the show gave room for Chapman to express her frustration at Voight’s methods and point out that maybe he should be looking at how he does things. But it was also equally as believable that Voight’s priority was that the woman didn’t die and Morales was put away. I don’t know if the two will ever see eye-to-eye, when push comes to shove.

[For more on the episode, here’s what Soffer shared about his favorite scene, that end face-off, and more.]
