Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

CHICAGO MED: Welcome to Ripley’s No Good Very Bad Day.

Really, for as bad as things were—and it got bad at points—it really solidified how much Ripley has already made the hospital a home. We saw Hannah meeting his friends (sure, in an unconventional way, but…), a couple of genuinely good Charles/Ripley heart-to-hearts, and Charles gently, carefully, go to Goodwin to encourage a settlement of the suit. (That last one was important, because Charles revealed just enough to convey his concern, but never tipped into violating Ripley’s patient rights or jeopardizing his position at the hospital.)  I’ve said it repeatedly, but Luke Mitchell really has been such a great addition to the show.

Yeah, Maggie and Dr. Johnson may also be a teeny tiny bit cursed with their luck, too, but…yes, please. Loving their chemistry.

Also: Major props to director Brian Tee…there were a number of noticeably gorgeous shot choices. It was a beautifully directed episode.

THE MASKED SINGER: Good for Chrissy Metz! She proved (again) she can really sing. But holy Amazon Prime product placement, guys.

CHICAGO FIRE: This was one of my favorite episodes of the season, hands down. Showrunner Andrea Newman referred to it as the show’s DIE HARD episode, and it absolutely felt like a high-stakes, tension-filled action movie. Logically, we knew Severide would be okay, we knew 51 would find him, but every single moment felt like it counted. It felt like every moment, every scene was loaded and was weighed down by the stress of the unknown and danger.

This is a minor thing, but so important: The problem wasn’t instantly solved, but everyone was smart about how they went about things. There weren’t delays that were obvious and avoidable. Everything felt earned.

Taylor Kinney and Miranda Rae Mayo, in particular, were great in the episode. It was a really great use of the show’s 250th episode.

[For more on the episode, here’s what Newman shared.]

CHICAGO P.D.: I did not expect Teresa to come back into play this way, but what an interesting way to pick that storyline back up. Back when “Split Second” aired, LaRoyce Hawkins said this would be the case Atwater would never forget, and, my goodness, he was right.

It makes sense he would try to make things right. It also makes sense why that would actually hurt the family/be harmful. And Trudy’s pep talk to Atwater? Fantastic. Trudy is so frequently underutilized on the show, but what a moment for them both.
