Chicago Med Season 9 Episode 7 Recap: “Step on a Crack and Break Your Mother’s Back”

The most recent episode of season 9 of Chicago Med is called “Step on a Crack and Break Your Mother’s Back.” Hannah and Archer come across a woman whose heart has something stuck inside it. “Crockett has a disagreement with the Chief of Oncology,” viewers went through a range of emotions as the doctors dealt with tough situations and their own personal problems.

At the beginning of the show, Shaun was celebrating being sober for another year, which is a big deal in his life. Ripley, a new team member, couldn’t make it to the party because she had to go somewhere else first. But his night took a strange turn when he saw Jason Davies stuck in a door that turned around. Soon, it came out that Jason has OCD, a mental illness that causes him to have repetitive thoughts and actions. Because of his condition, Jason could hardly do easy things like getting out of the house on an odd number of steps.

Dr. Charles and Ripley worked together to find a way to treat Jason that wouldn’t make him sick again. Scientists found that Jason’s OCD came from a strong belief that following certain patterns and routines would keep his family safe. When they realized this, it made his care more difficult because they had to deal with not only the symptoms but also the mental issues that were causing his behavior.

Asher, another team member, was taking care of Marisol Robbles, who had a birth control implant stuck in her heart. Asher suggested open-heart surgery to remove the implant, but Dr. Archer, a cardiothoracic surgeon, chose a less invasive method using a tube instead. But problems came up during Marisol’s treatment, and she had to have emergency surgery. This storyline showed how hard it can be to choose between different medical treatments and how important it is to carefully weigh the risks and rewards.

In a different plot, the charismatic and sure of himself doctor Crockett got into a fight with the Chief of Oncology over how to treat Hillary, a patient with a tumor in her neck. Even though they didn’t agree at first, Sharon Goodwin, who was Chief of Services, eventually agreed with Crockett, and Hillary had surgery to remove the growth, which went well. This plot showed how complicated medical ethics can be and how important it is to look out for patients’ best interests.

Another part of the show that gave the doctors more depth was the look into their personal lives. Archer thought about asking Margot, his son’s boss, to go on a date, which showed a softer side of his personality. Marcel, a committed and passionate doctor, told Sharon he was sorry for his earlier outburst, which showed he had grown and become more humble.

It was finally time for everyone to go home. Jason agreed to have surgery, and Shaun was happy with his new job and life. The episode ended on a hopeful note, showing how strong people are and how important it is for healthcare workers to have compassion and understanding.
