Goodwin finds Charles outside while another doctor handles the shooter. They rush Charles in and Rhodes takes care of him. Months later, Rhodes gives him a check-up. He seems to be okay and heads out. He’s got to testify in the shooter’s trial.
Reese is running things for psych while he’s out and Maggie is happy to see that Manning is back from her sabbatical. She announces the prodigal to Halstead but the reunion will have to be delayed as a trauma comes in. Husband and wife in a car accident.
Robin is getting released soon so Reese goes over what to expect. Rhodes is on hand too to hear everything. Manning and Halstead chat about their patients and her sabbatical. Noah catches up with Reese on the way out of the hospital. She’s going to hear Charles’ testimony.
She gets there while he is on the stand. Charles testifies that he thinks the shooter is insane and should be found not guilty. Reese confronts Charles about it and they argue. Choi gets a patient. A boy with stomach issues and no insurance.
Rhodes takes Robin home. She’s not interested in lunch though. She just wants to have sex with him and he’s not one the argue. While Halstead is updating his patient, Manning comes in to tell her that her husband has a brain bleed. She’s distraught. Halstead wants to run one more test before she can go see him.
Back at the hospital, Reese complains to Goodwin about Charles’ testimony. Goodwin points out that there is nothing they can do. Choi is treating the pus filled kid with assistance from April and another nurse. Once the kid is stabilized he gives April the easy job and the other nurse grunt work. She makes a comment to April about the fact that she is sleeping with Choi.
Latham has a patient and some interns. They need to find a hear transplant. After that Becker stops him and pilfers a patient from Rhodes with Latham’s permission. She plays him. Rhodes heads to work despite Robin’s attempts to seduce him. He gets to the hospital and sees Reese. He stops her to ask about Robin and she snaps at him.
Once inside, Rhodes finds out that Becker stole the surgery. April talks to Choi about the scuttlebutt of them sleeping together. She doesn’t want to be a cliché. Alarms sound and they rush to see their patient. He’s having a seizure so they take him up for scans.
Manning’s patient dies as she and Halstead try to save him. When they go to tell his wife, Latham requests that they ask for his heart. She grants it. Rhodes confronts Becker about poaching his case but Latham stops him. He’s got a new patient. The heart transplant.
Charles is still at court and finds out there will be a rebuttal witness. Stone brings in Reese to testify. The shooter freaks out. Choi has figured out what’s wrong with the kid. There’s an infection in his brain. April lies to the other nurse about sleeping with Choi.
Rhodes gets a call from Robin. She wants to make sure that they are good. He asks about her meds and she gets defensive. Becker tries to snark with him but he doesn’t engage. Charles gets back to the hospital and fights with Reese about testimony. Goodwin intervenes and tells Charles off for his behavior. She thinks that he is torturing himself for missing the signs.
Manning and Halstead tell the wife that the transplant was a success. She’s having survivor’s guilt because she was fighting with her husband at the time of their accident. She wants to see the heart recipient. They take her and she touches the guy’s chest and apologizes to her husband.
Robin and Charles talk about their respective days and then she talks about her relationship with Rhodes. Halstead and Manning leave the hospital at the same time. They make small talk about their patient. As they part ways, he tells her that he has feels for her and she tells him that she likes him as well. They kiss.
They aren’t going to keep them together. I figure they will get about six episodes before it ends. Rhodes and Robin will break up too. That poor kid with the pus. It was gross though. Also, I loved that the lawyer was Stone. Even though Justice is off, they still bring those people around and I think that’s pretty cool. And why was it Brett but not Dawson?
