Lindsay (guest star Sophia Bush) for help in resolving a difficult situation. Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) and Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) do their best to clear the logjam in the hospital and Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) fine-tunes his instincts after both Dr. Latham (guest star Ato Assandoh) and Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) pick up on things he doesn’t. Meanwhile, a teenage science geek and her friends impress Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) and Natalie with their bio-engineering lab.
