Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: My goodness, this was a depressing episode—but I also enjoyed it?

Ugh, Richard’s death was brutal. I figured they’d be unsuccessful, not that they’d actually do it and he’d then die from a stroke. (Also, I figured he’d survive, because I absolutely thought the worm dude would die as his wife was having the kid. Glad I was wrong there.)

I’m so curious if the patient who was presenting with cancer symptoms will come back or if she’s kind of doomed. Maggie and Charles did the best they could, but…

Also, are they really going there with this triangle between Hannah, Archer, and his son?

[For more on the episode, here’s what director Nikki Taylor-Roberts shared.]

CHICAGO FIRE: Uh, so, Brett is going to adopt that baby, right?

It’s hard, because she was absolutely right to be as mad as she was, but that was a biiiiig gamble to claim she was going to quit if the proper punishment wasn’t doled out. I’m a little worried about her. (And glad Boden clocked something wasn’t entirely right, too.)

But, man, it’s so, so great to see Cindy recovering.

CHICAGO P.D.: First of all, full stop, Tracy Spiridakos was fantastic in this. She had to shoulder both a heavy physical episode, which also had deeply emotional beats…and she crushed it all.

Because, yes, I’m a little crushed. The long-term prospects for a couple staying together is difficult when half of them are no longer on the show are, well, not great. It can work on some shows! But with CPD, which focuses on individual characters a couple of times a year, it’s hard to imagine how it would work for multiple seasons.

Do I wish it had been handled better? Of course. I wish the writers had let Jay talk to her about his decisions; she would have been crushed, even if he had looped her in from the start.

My concern, right now, is how much we might get to see Upton recover from this huge amount of trauma she just survived. She was abducted. She saw a man in the aftermath of losing his hand and then he died in front of her. She had to write a message in BLOOD. This woman kicked, screamed, and clawed her way to survival. We’ve seen the show let Burgess (and Ruzek) and Atwater explore healing this season…I hope Upton can be next.

I’m extremely grateful Torres was on top of things and the squad took Upton’s disappearance seriously, though. And, look, I’m guessing it’s not wildly popular, but Voight was right: Upton needs to love herself. If Jay isn’t taking her calls…I don’t blame her for taking off her ring. It sucks! I hope they can somehow reconcile at some point.
