Dr. Charles meets with the student who stabbed himself with needles. He says he wasn’t trying to hurt himself, it was to relieve the pressure. It sounds insane but it is the only thing that works. He insists there is something wrong with his heart; something Daniel says the tests don’t show. He leaves the room and speaks with Lanik and Dr. Latham, expressing both sides. Charles says they can do psychiatric treatment afterward but approves the surgery.
Maggie is at the desk when Daniel comes down seeing that his daughter was kicked out of the nursery. She intercedes between Daniel and May, suggesting Leah in the waiting room could use her help and she agrees.

Will is called into Roger’s room, where his entire body is blistered. Will orders the RN to call his wife and she shockingly tells him she is on the phone with her right now and Roger is sitting right beside them; so who is in the room?
Outside, April is given the news that Ethan broke most protocols going in there but she tells him, there is a child in there. He informs her that as soon as everything is in place they are charging the place.
Inside the store, the phone keeps ringing as Ethan attends to the child on the floor. Ethan grabs a knife, swearing it is because the boy can’t breathe, speaking all his actions then throwing the knife where he can’t reach it; the robber is impressive.
Billy still refuses to go for surgery, Daniel watches him as Maggie would love for him to clear the room as she has dozens of people in the OR waiting area. He catches his daughter, Ana, on the phone and demands it from her. She feels if she has to go on that field trip to the science center. She explains how she asked a boy out and now everyone knows he said no and her life is officially ruined. Maggie explains that 13-year-old girls are simply wired differently. He gets an idea and asks her to page Dr. Latham.
Will meets Roger and Yvette as he apologizes for the mistaken identity but Rogers quickly corrects it, saying it is Brian, a friend of him and they’d like to see him. Will chastises them, saying how reckless it was since his insurance card has his information and not Brian’s and he could have killed Brian.
Latham and Daniel talk to about what they believe this is. He is extremely determined to leave the hospital as soon as possible, but Daniel says they will fix the immediate hurt but it won’t correct how it happened.
Natalie is looking up Crockett’s case when Doris walks by. She tells Nat that she hopes she got the right blood because earlier, Will got the wrong one and it was a mess. Natalie thinks about it for a moment and takes the blood herself wanting to ask Marcel if he ever donated bone marrow before and he has.
Outside the convenience store, the robber is getting edgy, feeling the police and playing games. Ethan encourages guns to keep talking or they will barge right in. Ethan shares about some huge mistakes that have happened in their lives and he would do anything to make it better. The robber takes the phone and is about to turn himself in. But smoke grenades break into the windows and the building is rushes. Ethan reminds them they have a casualty on the ground.
April runs to Ethan and hugs him tightly, worried about when SWAT rushed the building. It’s a brief connection before Ethan needs to give him details to the police.
Back at Chicago Med, they are arresting Marcel; something Natalie and Sharon stops them from, explaining how a bone marrow transplant could make the new blood into their own. They believe the recipient of Ethan’s blood is still out there.
Amy is crying in her dad’s office. She again thinks should stay home from school. He explains how he has to fake a limp in school to get out gym class. He tells her that things like running away don’t work, which she grasps as going back to school. She wants to know when the hurting stops. He hugs her and says life always has its ups and downs as she will.
Will is stopped by Maggie about the fake insurance card. Will spots Asher, and questions his own ability to spot fakes. Christian kisses Hannah on the cheek saying he appreciated her all day. Will stops her from explaining her day, by simply saying, “I believe you” and they leave the hospital together.
Marcel is pretty amazed by Natalie’s help. He questions why the bone marrow so she reveals what Dr Moody told her about his baby. He tells her to keep that stuff to herself because if other people hear it, they will think differently of him.
