In Season 2 of “Chicago Med,” Episode 11, Connor and Ava’s flirtationship comes to a head when they finally share a steamy kiss. However, the directorial choices regarding how that kiss happened seem a little strange.
Any fan knows the build up to that first kiss between two characters usually makes for some of the most entertaining television. But on “Chicago Med,” Connor and Ava go from sitting together discussing work … to suddenly kissing. The next episode opens with Ava in Connor’s apartment the next morning, with it clear the pair had spent the night together.
While the moment wasn’t a surprise, the way it happened, without much context, definitely was. However, this is far from the most shocking part of Connor and Ava’s relationship. In Season 4, Connor’s father accuses alleges Ava slept with him for funding for Connor’s business. Later, Connor suspects Ava of killing his father — and in the Season 5 premiere, she admits to the homicide, and takes her own life. It’s a horrifying end for a truly tragic love story, but also exactly the kind of drama we’ve come to expect from our favorite medical shows.
With “Chicago Med” now in its seventh season, we can only imagine even more jaw-dropping relationships and revelations to come — and we’ll certainly be tuning in to see them.
