I've seen the semen allergy before on another show, but not a medical one. On "The League," Paul Scheer's character is with Jayma Mays and they find out she's terribly allergic to his semen. Their friends refer to it as "widow-making death jizz," or something like that. They plan to work around it, except Paul uses a sort-of handkerchief (well, it's an embroidered pee bib, but that's a totally different story) when he jerks off, and Jayma doesn't know that, so when she uses it to wipe her eyes later bc she's crying, she has to go to the hospital bc of the death jizz.
That couple was so ugh to me. We get it, you love each other, you can't keep your hands off each other, but you are not in your own controlled space, you are there so you can be helped by professionals, and you insist on the intense PDAs and sex. Yes, semen from sexual activity is just a small part of allllll the bodily fluids that hospitals have to clean up after, but that's also a choice. People in hospitals are not usually choosing to bleed and vomit and pee all over. This couple chose to have unprotected sex at the hospital when the professionals whose help they're seeking could walk in at any time and be subjected to that. And then the husband gets all indignant and mortified when Choi asks, "did you finish?" Bc he totally draws the line there, and geez, Choi, have some decency like the rest of us, why don't you.
The last few minutes were just awful. I am positive that the writer's room has a whiteboard that says at the top, in big, capital, underlined letters, "how can we make the staff even more unprofessional?" Just like that, Dr. Asher says she'll turn herself in bc she's just so overcome by Halstead caring about her??? And Halstead believes she will do as she says, even after her previous behavior??? She makes eyes at Halstead and invites her back home??? Halstead smiles like this is a normal, desirable hookup with no red flags and complications??? What??? The producers cut Connor's character for more of this BS???
