Chicago Med (2015) s05e16 Episode Script

Who Should Be the Judge

I will turn myself in.
- Looking for Dr.
- She hasn't come in yet.
My phone crashed on me, and I had to get it fixed, and I caught a flat You expect me to believe that? You didn't seem to have a problem last night.
Your patient and her baby almost died today while you were off somewhere getting high.
You think whatever you want to.
- What do you need? - A favor.
It was a mistake thinking you'd turn yourself in.
Hey, how's your hormone therapy going? Feels like my skin is crawling with ants.
How lucky am I to have found you? You give me hope, Ben.
All right, Maggie, the radiologist should read your scans sometime today, so that just leaves your labs.
Come back at 6:00 p.
for your blood draw.
Okay, yeah, thanks.
Oh, Dr.
Singh? The results.
How soon? I'll ask the lab to put a rush on it.
- The wait is hell, I know.
- Yeah.
- But I got a good feeling.
- Yeah.
I'm not worried.
I gotta get to work.
See you at 6:00.
Your bowling semifinals are tonight.
You should go.
I can handle this alone.
Nah, I'm gonna skip.
I wanna be there.
You kidding? Your team needs you.
Baby, don't sweat it.
They'll call in an alternate I said I'll be fine, okay? Ju What's up? Why are you boxing me out all of a sudden? - I'm not boxing you out.
- You are.
Just Just don't miss your game, okay? I'll be there as soon as I can after my appointment.
I gotta get back to the ED.
Word is, Doc Crock's fooling around with Lena Maynor, CT Tech.
Funny, I heard he was hooking up with Camille in the pharmacy.
- What? - Hmm.
Don't you all have anything better to do? Morning, Sexton.
Mags, I think I left my badge in the car.
Be right back.
All right, make it snappy.
- You okay? - Yeah.
What do I care who he sees? Don't forget, appointment with Dr.
Patchefsky tonight.
See how many eggs fertilized.
You mean if any eggs fertilized.
After, I was thinking we can grab dinner at Galit.
- Celebrate.
- The eternal optimist.
All right, I'm in.
You'd probably call this ill fortune.
But I'd call it fate.
Your shift started an hour ago.
What, did you have one too many bourbons last night? Didn't know you were punching my time card, but no, actually.
Not this time.
Left my badge in the car again.
Should probably superglue it to my forehead.
Stapler would work, too.
Help! Help, please! - Oh, what's going on? - My wife.
She's in labor.
She's bleeding real bad.
- Were you in an accident? - Yeah.
Did she have problems with her pregnancy before today? Um, not sure.
Give me your phones, and get in.
What? Hey, you don't need to do this.
Give me your damn phone.
Okay, listen, I I'm the surgeon, okay? I can help him.
- You let her go, okay? - I said, get in! - Okay.
Okay, okay.
- Listen.
Now! Hey, easy.
- That's a nasty laceration.
Wanna tell me what happened? Watch it, you're gonna kill him! He nicked his femoral vein.
Belt's not gonna stop the bleeding.
Hand me that paintbrush.
All right, I need you to lift your leg for me.
Okay? Right there in the middle, all right? That's too tight, dammit! Any looser, and you'll bleed out in minutes.
Look, if he doesn't get surgery, he's gonna lose his leg.
We need to get him - to the hospital now - No hospital! - Figure something out! - What Maybe you take us to get supplies, okay? There there's a pharmacy right down the road.
The security's too tight there.
Is there still that gas station up on Cermak, Jimmy? - Ye-yeah.
- Go.
Easy, man.
All right.
All right.
Will Halstead, here to see Dr.
Hannah Asher.
Uh, let's see.
Looks like she was admitted yesterday morning.
- Yeah.
- We typically don't recommend visitors for the first 48 hours.
Yeah, she's, uh, expecting me, so I don't wanna leave her hanging.
Room 2268.
Make it brief.
Thank you.
Excuse me.
What dose of methadone is Dr.
Asher on? She's sick as a dog.
She's being tapered way too fast.
This facility doesn't permit the use of opioid agonists like methadone for medical staff.
Most peer-run centers don't.
Wait, wait, so you're telling me she's gotta go cold turkey? No methadone because she's a doctor? It's the protocol.
Choi, treatment three.
- Oh, no, Jasmine.
- You know her? She's been in and out of the ED for end-stage liver disease.
- Hey.
- April.
Oh, that's her friend Lauren.
Hey, Lauren.
Oh, my God.
Hey, boys.
Mama's not feeling so well.
I am so sorry to hear that.
What's going on? Jasmine was making the boys breakfast, and she just started throwing up, - and then she passed out.
- Okay.
- Is she gonna be okay? - We're gonna take good care of her, okay? I promise.
Come on.
I want you to take them to the day care center, okay? - Okay.
- I'll keep you posted.
- Okay, thanks.
- Right there.
- Hey, Jasmine.
- April.
April, where are my babies? Don't worry.
Just took them to the day care center, don't worry.
Easy, easy.
- Just lie back.
- Okay.
No nodes, but eyes are icteric.
Jasmine, I'm gonna push on your belly, okay? Okay, okay.
Severe ascites.
Let's get a CBC, CMP, UA, and chest X-ray.
Jasmine says here you're scheduled for a living donor transplant next week, but I'm thinking they may move it up to today.
They found you a donor? That's great! Last time you were here, you were still waiting on the list.
I found my own, actually: my biological mom, Annette.
I didn't know you were adopted.
Petitioned the courts to disclose her information.
Thank God she was willing to donate.
She's my last shot.
- That's some good luck.
- Yeah.
More like a miracle.
All right, I see Annette's info here.
Is it okay if I contact her? Uh-huh.
Please do.
Thank you.
Has anyone seen Dr.
Marcel? He left for his car ages ago.
I paged him twice.
You know, because methadone and suboxone are technically opiates, the concern is, they're gonna cause impairment on the job.
Well, but doctors can take depression meds and sleeping pills, and and residents can work 30-hour shifts? Where's the concern there? I hear you.
I mean, you know, it's complicated.
You know, it's inhumane.
They're punishing addicts - because of the stigma.
- Look, Will.
It must have been an agonizing decision.
You know, turning in Hannah.
I can only imagine.
But for what it's worth, I mean, I think you did the right thing.
- Yeah.
- Will.
Patient in four.
College kid passed out on campus, suffering from dizziness and a headache.
Charles, turns out she's an old patient of yours.
- Krista Butler.
- Oh, Krista.
It's, uh, early-onset schizophrenia, presented when she was about 15.
All right, good to know.
- Krista.
- Dr.
- How you doing? - They didn't They didn't call my mom, did they? 'Cause I'm 18 now.
She has not been contacted.
Everything, uh, okay with you two? Since I started college, she's just she's gone all psycho helicopter mom on me.
I just I've had to stay at my boyfriend's place the past couple nights just to catch a break.
Mothers and daughters.
Krista, this is Dr.
I have brought him up to date - on your history.
- Okay.
Hi, there.
So other than the dizziness and headache, any, uh Anything else bothering you? Stomach doesn't feel so great.
Heart rate's a bit elevated.
Thinking you're dehydrated.
Any chance you had a few drinks last night? Maybe a couple, but nothing crazy.
- All right.
- Look, you're in college, you wanna try new things, I completely get it.
But you know you have to be really careful mixing alcohol and antipsychotics, right? What are you taking right now? Nothing.
I I'm not taking risperidone anymore.
I haven't taken it for months, actually.
Krista, really important you remain compliant - with your meds - It makes me feel numb.
Less creative.
What, so you're just symptom free? Yeah, totally.
Never felt better.
Okay, I wanna talk about this more a little later, but in the meantime, let's Let's get you feeling better.
Yeah, CBC, BMP, hang a normal liter of saline, and 2 milligrams of metoclopramide for the nausea.
Krista, I'll be back to check on you soon.
So, just out of curiosity, When's the last time you checked in with your mom? - Fine, you can call her.
- Okay.
- I'll be back in a bit.
- Okay.
All right, make sure you keep his leg elevated - until I get back.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
She comes with me.
You stay here.
Listen, I'm the surgeon.
I know what to get.
Cuff him.
Do it! - Okay.
- Let's go! I'm sorry.
No, no.
Hands above his head.
That bar.
- All right.
- It's on.
All right, all right.
Cover your hands.
Come on.
- That your boy on your arm? - Look.
- Just you just keep qui - How old is he? Come on, hurry up.
Get back! Get in there! Come on! Move! What the hell did you do? Nothing! He just passed out.
What the hell are you doing? See? He's alive, okay? Bro? His calf is rock solid.
We need to move.
I need my hands to work, man.
Okay, come on.
Pull around the corner.
- Over there.
- Okay.
Hey, Ms.
I'm Dr.
How's my daughter? Is she doing okay? I told Jasmine that I would watch the boys so she could rest up till the transplant, but that girl She thinks she's Superwoman, I swear.
So they're getting her ready for surgery? Yeah, the transplant team is just running some tests to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Oh, it's gonna go smoothly.
I've been praying on it since I got the call.
I like your attitude.
And while they finish up with Jasmine, I just need to check your BP, if you don't mind.
- Not at all.
- I, uh I heard your story.
Pretty incredible being reunited with your daughter - under the circumstances.
- God works in mysterious ways, and I've learned not to question him.
Your hard work paid off.
BP's improved.
Hill, um, your chart says you had an episode of malignant hyperthermia? When I got foot surgery a few years back.
That drug - I forget the name.
- Succinylcholine.
I had a real bad reaction to it.
But they said I could still donate to Jasmine.
I just have to use a different anesthesia, right? Uh, that's correct.
Just double checking.
Excuse me.
I have been calling and texting you nonstop.
You're supposed to come home every night, no exceptions.
Mom, chill.
I was busy studying.
I was about to call the police.
You see what I'm talking about? How about we, uh We let Krista rest a bit? I'm gonna go get you some food.
- Okay.
- I bet you've been living on vending machine crap.
I will be right back.
You know me so well.
Look, I don't wanna overstep, but, you know, sometimes when we loosen the reins a bit Loosen the reins? Like what? Let her drink? Krista's no longer a minor.
I'm not at liberty to Don't give me that.
She is a week over 18.
Charles, some help in here? Honey? Oh, my God.
Two of Ativan.
- What what's wrong with her? - Having a seizure.
- She ever had one before? - No, never.
Let's give me a BMP, a CBC, head CT, EKG, - and a, uh a urine tox.
- Copy that.
- Also, an EEG.
- Mm-hmm.
But you don't think Annette is Jasmine's biological mother? Malignant hyperthermia is a genetic disorder.
If Annette can't tolerate succinylcholine, Jasmine shouldn't be able to, either.
But I checked Jasmine's chart.
They used it in her previous surgeries.
But, look, the transplant team didn't flag it.
Are we really gonna jeopardize Jasmine's life over a possibility? If it were me on that gurney, I'd at least wanna know.
Hey, look, Ethan.
If Annette changes her mind, that is it for Jasmine.
She doesn't have any time left.
Think of her boys.
Please, you don't have to do this.
Krista's EEG is normal.
No epileptiform activity.
- She didn't have a seizure.
- So we're looking at what? - Dyskinesia? - Right.
CT was normal as well.
No previous signs of strokes.
Yeah, it can also be caused by a drug interaction.
Urine tox is clean.
It's not dyskinesia.
Unless You gave her metoclopramide - for the nausea, right? - Yeah.
- How much? - 2 milligrams.
Why? Gonna order couple more labs.
- Hey, Doris.
- Hmm? I got a peds patient in treatment two.
Grab Dr.
Lanik for me? Peds? Where's Dr.
Manning? First Crockett goes AWOL, and now Nat's late - with no call-in.
- Hmm.
- It's not like her.
- Dr.
Manning's car is in the lot.
I just passed it.
That's strange.
She's not picking up her phone.
Can you track her location on Drop A Pin? Yeah.
That's weird.
It says that she's been just outside of the hospital for the last hour.
Christy, grab the brick.
This thing says she should be right here.
I'm gonna call her again.
Come on, Nat.
It's coming from in here.
Oh, my God.
Wait, there's another phone here.
Be careful.
There could be prints.
That's Crockett's phone.
Okay, uncuff him.
All right, come on.
All right, let's do it.
- Now easy with that trigger.
- Come on, let's do it.
Sterilize him.
- This is gonna hurt.
- Easy.
Hold on.
Just be quick.
Yeah, yeah.
No, the alley near the back end of the south parking lot.
Any luck? No, there's There's a blind spot.
Thank you.
Two of my doctors are missing, possibly in grave danger.
What do you have? Okay, so the prints were smeared, but techs were able to lift two partials, and they're a match for an escaped convict's brother, Jim Clemons.
- And the blood? - It's a DNA match for Tyler Clemons, convicted murderer.
So what now? So now we don't stop 'til we find them.
I got a BOLO out and an investigative alert.
I've officers across the city sitting on their known associates and their family members.
So far, no hits.
Meantime, no one else can know about this.
If the news catches wind of the kidnapping, the abductors might try to cut their losses.
But please keep us posted.
Will do.
I'm going to run Tyler and Jim Clemons through our system, see if any medical records come up.
What do you mean, Krista didn't have a seizure? - I saw it with my own eyes.
- The involuntary movements you saw were caused by something called dyskinesia.
Is that due to her schizophrenia? No.
Uh It can be caused by an adverse drug interaction.
In this case, between the drug we gave Krista for her nausea, metoclopramide, and her antipsychotic medication, risperidone.
But here's here's the thing.
Krista told us that she had stopped taking her risperidone, and yet the labs showed low levels of the drug in her system.
Do you have any idea why that might be? I don't know.
Why does it matter? I mean, at least she's taking her medicine again.
I think we can all agree that's a good thing, right? So based on the half-life of risperidone, we know that Krista hasn't taken the drug in roughly 48 hours.
The amount of time she's been crashing at her boyfriend's, - away from home.
- Joanne, have you been giving Krista risperidone without her knowledge? She had been doing so well.
I just When she told me she was stopping, I had to do something.
Charles, please.
You remember her hallucinations, how bad it got.
You can't say anything.
I'm only trying to protect her.
I'm begging you.
Joanne, dosing her without her knowledge is just it's extraordinarily dangerous.
It's also a direct violation of her autonomy.
Now, the best thing would be for you to tell her, but if you're not up for that, I'm I'm sorry, but it is my duty to let her know.
Please don't.
Hurry up, goddammit.
We gotta get back on the road.
With the tourniquet turned down, I can only move so fast.
I gotta deal with these bleeders individually.
- We don't have time.
- You want it to go fast? Move.
The bleeding's stopped.
- Easy, easy.
- You crazy bitch.
All right, easy.
Let's go! Whoa.
Whoa, hey! We did our part.
You let us go.
You're not going anywhere! Let's go! Jasmine did great.
The transplant - couldn't have gone any better.
- Thank you.
She's really lucky to have a friend like you.
Will you excuse me? I I should probably go tell the boys the good news.
Yes, of course.
Hey hey, April.
Was that Lauren Knight? - Do you know her? - Yeah, from when I worked at Children and Family Services.
Wait, Lauren used to work at DCFS? Mm-hmm.
Do you know if she still works there? Pretty sure, yeah.
Why? No, I just thought she said she worked at a bank.
Doesn't DCFS keep adoption records? Mm-hmm.
Excuse me, Arlene.
I need to make a call.
Thank you so much for calling.
Yeah? A clerk from a local gas station in the West Loop just called.
Said he found Natalie's badge.
Please tell me he laid eyes on her? He did.
She was okay.
Okay, I'll call Detective Halstead.
Hopefully they'll have security cameras there.
- Yeah.
Oh, Sharon.
- Yeah? Where are we with the medical records? - I'm still working on it.
- Okay.
How's my mom? Any side effects from the anesthesia? None.
She started asking about you the moment she woke up.
Sweet lady.
Yeah, she is.
Jasmine, how could you? Both of you? April, what are you talking about? They conned Annette.
Th she posed as her daughter.
They catfished her for an organ.
- That's not true.
- Jasmine! Yeah, you were adopted.
Your biological parents are Derrick and Janine, both deceased.
You accessed adoption records to set up Annette? Of course not.
That's ridiculous.
- Jasmine.
- Say something! Jasmine, don't answer him.
Annette put her life on the line for you.
I know.
I know she did.
And I didn't set out to hurt her, I promise.
It's just when I found out that my biological parents were dead I had no other options.
My boys.
I couldn't leave my boys.
I couldn't.
What you did is illegal.
Annette could press charges.
What was the plan? You gonna ditch her while she's recovering? God, no.
Annette may not be my biological mom, but she's become family to me and the boys.
We love her.
We'd never abandon her.
Isn't Jasmine's fault.
Listen, this whole thing was my idea.
Okay, please.
I cannot believe you would do this.
- Where are you taking us? - Just be quiet, you.
- Come on, man.
- We done with them? No, no, no.
I need They're my insurance policy.
But you you go, man.
I'll see you soon, okay? Love you, man.
Don't even think about it, girl.
Please, I have a son.
Go, just go.
Go in the house.
- Come on.
- All right, easy, man, easy! Go.
Just keep quiet.
Come on.
I can't believe you're really here.
But Go now, Mom.
I just need you to go.
- In the living room.
- Come on.
He's ill.
Maybe we can help him.
Nah, you can't.
Grab these chairs.
Put them back to back and sit down.
- But we can help - Just do it.
Close the door.
I may have something to help with your investigation.
Bobby Clemons' Tyler's son's medical records.
How did you get those? We can't unseal medical records.
All that matters is, I got them.
Bobby was treated for stage IV brain cancer at East Mercy.
He's terminal.
His grandmother signed him out, - took him home for hospice.
- His grandmother? We couldn't track her down.
Her last known was demolished.
3768 South Parnell Ave.
Everybody listen up, this is Halstead.
I need you to meet at Sox lot for a pre-raid brief.
I got a solid location on our target.
Copy that.
I was hoping you were Jasmine and my grandbabies.
Annette, that's what we came to talk to you about.
I'm so sorry, but we have to tell you Jasmine is not actually your daughter.
- Ms.
Hill? - I already knew.
- What? - My daughter, Zora, died 12 years ago in a shelter.
At least, that's what the folks in the neighborhood tell me.
But if knew Jasmine wasn't yours, w-why didn't you say something? I was just a baby myself when I got pregnant.
I made some bad choices trying to provide for my little girl, but I ended up doing time.
That's how I lost her.
But I never stopped thinking about her.
So when Jasmine called I knew it was God Giving me another chance to do some good, to make it up to Zora somehow.
So I I played along.
I didn't tell Jasmine that someone must've made a clerical error, and I wasn't really her mother.
Annette, it It wasn't a clerical error.
Jasmine knew you were not her mother.
She conned you.
I don't care.
Hill, what they did was wrong.
For the first time in my life, I have a family.
And I don't wanna lose her or those boys.
Um Our obligation was to inform you.
How you deal with it is up to you.
Thank you.
So, can you ask them My family to come see me? She'd rather live in the lie.
Guess sometimes the truth is more painful.
Help, somebody help! - Don't - No Krista, don't.
Ow! They're under my skin! I have to get them out! Two of Haldol, IV.
- Need help.
Let's go.
- No, please, no, no.
No, no, no, please.
You're poisoning me.
Mom! No, you have to listen.
It's poison! Krista, I'm sorry, but you're a danger to yourself.
We have to give you medication.
Meds are in.
Joanne, are you all right? Let's take a look at your face.
You okay? If you hadn't told her if you'd just let me continue helping her Now what? Well, if she continues to exhibit self-harming behavior, - we'll put her on a psych hold.
- And what if she doesn't take - her medicine? - In that case, the next step would be to seek a court order to get her committed so that she can receive the necessary treatment, - but let's not get ahead - Institutionalize her? She's gonna have to drop out of college! I had this under control.
You ruined her life! Sorry, son.
I'm I'm so sorry I wasn't there.
This is Detective Jay Halstead with the Chicago Police Department.
Tyler, we have you surrounded.
I don't want you or your family to get hurt.
I want you to come out the front door with your hands where we can see them.
No one's gonna shoot.
I know you're with Natalie Manning and Crockett Marcel.
As an act of good faith, have them come out first.
If you do not comply, - Here, uncuff her.
- We'll be forced to breach the house.
Okay, you can go.
Go ahead, go.
You go.
- No, I - It's okay.
Do as he says.
It's okay.
Go, it's okay.
It's okay.
Shut the door behind you.
Shut the door.
Patrol, stand down.
Friendly coming out.
Shields! - Go.
- Move, move, move.
Get her out! Get her out! I got you.
Get her out of there.
Move, move! I'm sorry about your son.
Go ahead.
No! Come on.
Come on, man.
Don't do that! Breach, breach, breach! Crockett! No! Crockett! No! Natalie? Come here, you.
Are you okay? Are you hurt? No, I'm fine.
I'm but Crockett.
- What where is he? - I don't know.
He was in the house, and there was a gunshot, and all the officers swarmed in, but they won't let me in.
They won't tell me anything.
I was so scared.
I'm okay, I'm okay.
- You all right? - Yeah.
All right, get him to the E.
Make sure you get him two units of uncrossed blood, stat.
That man owes you his life.
For what it's worth, I completely understand why you did what you did.
I wish I could just shake her.
I wanna make her see she's she's just throwing her future away.
I mean, it's our most basic, primal instinct as parents to protect our kids, often from themselves, right? Which is when it gets really tricky.
If you can resist that instinct, if you can just Just try and let Krista figure things out on her own You mean let her lose everything.
If that's what it takes, yeah.
I mean, if you can tolerate watching her experience the consequences of her own decisions, there's a really good chance that eventually, she will see the benefits of staying compliant.
And Joanne, that's the only real shot she has at learning how to manage her illness.
What are you doing here? So, uh, I I brought you something.
What What's that? It's, uh It's suboxone.
Okay, I'll bring you more tomorrow.
You should not have to suffer like this.
First, you snitch on me.
Then you come in here and you jeopardize my recovery? They catch me, I would never be able to practice again.
- Hannah, I was just - Go.
Go and don't come back again.
Go! Go! Go! Get out! Get out.
Get out now! Hannah, is everything okay? - Ben.
- Now look here.
I know you're used to running things in the hospital, but I am my own man.
Do not make decisions for me.
Okay? You're still waiting for your results? I'm sorry, babe.
I just can't what if it's bad news? What if the hormone therapy isn't working? Then we'll figure something else out.
I'm gonna be with you every step of the way.
I know you will, and that's what scares me.
- What's that mean? - Ben, no Maggie.
You were by my side at my lowest.
And now you're in remission.
You should be out there, having fun, not stuck in the hospital with me.
There you go again, telling me what to do.
You don't get it, do you? You are my life.
Sorry to interrupt.
I come bearing very good news.
What? Do you want to step in my office? No! Please, tell me now.
The radiologist read your scans.
No sign of a mass.
And your blood work It was remarkable, really.
No detectable tumor markers.
So does that mean You're officially in remission.
After inseminating the eggs, unfortunately, we found that none of them fertilized.
I know this is not the news you wanted, but it doesn't have to be the end of the road.
You can start another cycle in as little as six weeks.
Um, we'll talk about it and let you know.
I'll do it.
All right, so what do you wanna do to celebrate? A spa treatment, dinner You name it, I got you.
Just being with you.
That's enough.
Aww, come on.
Come on, come on, come on.
Weren't you just lecturing me about having fun? - Yeah.
- Look, go big or go home.
If you had one wish, right now, anything in the world, - what would it be? - Honestly? Mm-hmm.
If The only thing I would wish is To spend the rest of my life with you.
Are you serious? You know, you better not be playing with me, because, you know, I'd marry you tomorrow.
- I'm not playing.
- Oh, baby.
