Recap of “Over Troubled Water”Halstead and Manning are in bed when his alarm goes off. He’s got to go. He’ll see her in the morning. Rhodes tells Charles that he is heading to Minneapolis to see Robin that night. Charles asks if that is a good idea and Rhodes doesn’t care.

Choi tells April to call child services. He won’t let her take the baby. Manning gets the baby’s temperature regulated. Charles tries to get the mother into rehab but Choi thinks she is a lost cause.
Paramedic Barry stops in to see Maggie. Halstead gets a patient, Goodwin’s ex’s new wife. Choi invites April over but she is going to Noah’s hockey game. She gets that isn’t importnat to him, that being family. Rhodes asks Bekker to cover for him when he goes to Minneapolis. She agrees but judges him.
Stohl comes over and tells them both that they are needed in the field and sends them out. Goodwin wants progress reports on Reese. Manning’s infant patient is crashing. She tries to help but she thinks it is withdrawal. She wants the baby to hear the mother’s heartbeat but Choi and Charles vote against that.
Reese gets a new boss. She’s basically Umbridge. She’s all theoretical, no practical. Bekker and Rhodes get an update from Squad 3 as they make their way into a collapsed building to see the patient.
Halstead updates Lilah on her condition. She needs to be intubated because her lungs may fail. It could only be temporary. She’s not sold on it. Charles talks to the mother about holding the baby. She seems interested at first but she says no. Lilah asks Goodwin to keep an eye on her husband because she signed a DNR.
Left with no other options, Rhodes is taking drastic measures in the field. Reese goes to see Charles. She wants to be on his service and tells him as much. He appreciates her wishes but thinks that her current assignment is the best course of action.
Bert is pissed at Halstead over Lilah’s DNR. Goodwin tries to calm him down. Choi talks to the baby’s mother. She knows he doesn’t like her. He knows more about this sort of situation than she thinks. Barry is persistent and Maggie is annoyed.
Things are rough for Rhodes’ patient. His leg is trapped and they aren’t making progress clearing it. They have to amputate. The baby is crashing. Manning and April rush to stabilize him. Halstead checks in on Lilah. She cancels the DNR.
Charles talks to the mother again and convinces her to hold the baby for Manning. Lilah crashes and Halstead is ready to shock her. Bert stops him. They check with Lilah. She doesn’t want extreme measures. They let her go.
Rhodes brings in his amputee. Child services shows up for the baby. The mother doesn’t want to let him go now but she has no choice. Goodwin and Maggie walk out together. She is going to call her kids and have them check on Bert.
The mother checks herself out despite Charles and Choi trying to stop her. Charles tells Reese that he feels responsible for her situation. He will allow her back on his service. Rhodes goes to see his amputee. Rhodes realizes that he should let Robin go.
Choi tells April about his own family. Rhodes and Bekker banter. Halstead’s alarm goes off but Manning tells him to stay. He’s happy.
I like Choi in a general sense but I’m never positive on what to make of him because we really don’t know much about him. Also, how is Noah playing hockey with a busted face? I felt bad for the amputee guy in this one.
