Spoilers for 'Chicago Med' Season 5 Episode 18 'In the Name of Love'
If there's one thing fans of 'Chicago Med' can agree on, it may be that Dr Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) and Dr Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) are the most annoying doctors to work with, and could be the most annoying characters on the show.
Hence, whenever Crockett and Natalie work together, fans always expect the two of them to come to a major disagreement. However, in previous episodes, both doctors managed to pull by without much incident. In this week's episode, that was not the case.
After Crockett puts himself on the patient Natalie is working on, the two disagree over the treatment procedure. Moreover, the attitude put forth by each doctor annoys the other one. In the end, Marcel goes ahead with his decision to do surgery, which leads to the patient dying.
Later, Natalie goes to him to console him, telling him that it may not have been the surgery that killed the patient because he had many underlying conditions, including a genetic one. She tells him that the way to move forward is to do more surgeries and that one day, he may be able to save the patient's son, who has the same genetic condition.
Crockett Marcel has been a dividing character since the first time he appeared earlier this season. While many fans strive to like him, the character is found in the most confounding situations, leaving him with a bad reputation among fans.
A fan tweeted, "Uh oh, Marcel doing Natalie’s consult...why? Does he just want to continue to but into people’s patients to pitch surgery or does he want to be near Nat? #ChicagoMed." Another wrote, "Why is Marcel running from Natalie? Cause she challenges him that’s why! Whew, two hard-headed people working together. #ChicagoMed."
One viewer opined, "Here Marcel goes. Poaching patients to do surgery & it looks like he didn’t tell Natalie... HORRID COMMUNICATION! #ChicagoMed," while another said, "Try to replace Connor with Marcel was a dumb move from Chicago Med's writers. Connor was incredible, Marcel on the other side a huge pain in the ass #ChicagoMed."
Fans also appreciated Natalie for standing up to Crockett. One fan wrote, "I see Natalie is giving it to Marcel, she’s not backing down. What he did was wrong, it seems like he didn’t even tell her. #ChicagoMed." Another tweeted, "Leave it to Natalie to be a good person and try to console Marcel about his wrong decision. That’s why I love her. #ChicagoMed."
'Chicago Med' airs on NBC on Wednesday nights at 8/7c. The next episode will air on April 8.
