Chicago Med Season 5 Episode 12 Recap:
As we expected, Halstead ignores the fact that his proposal was not accepted by the board and goes ahead with his plans for an unsanctioned Safe Injection Site. He and Buddy rent a place and invite drug addicts to get high. It seems ridiculous but Halstead’s sole aim is to prevent more people dying from drug overdoses. He even prevents a woman named Val from reaching an inevitable end from a fatal dose of unadministered drugs.
Meanwhile, the crew tends to a school bus crash where there are several injured students and two kids in a serious condition. The duo is held together by rebar that pierced through both their bodies — leading to a dangerous situation. Dr. Marcel and Dr. Manning tend to the victims, with April steering out of their way since she still has strong feelings for Marcel. But she is conflicted because of her engagement with Dr. Choi.
Henry and Kate, the two children held together by the rebar, are finally separated, with Kate being taken to OR and Henry transferred to radiology. On the other hand, Choi takes care of another student named Alice who has injuries on her ribs. Meanwhile, the safe injection site is taking a toll on Halstead. He even goes behind Charles’ back and gets a surgery authorized for an addict named Mike — although it is apparent that Mike has no intention of getting clean. In fact, Mike calls in his girlfriend to slip him some drugs while in surgery.
Halstead almost decides to quit when he finds out about this. But then he again meets Val and thinks there might be some hope still.
