A massive park shooting turns Med into a war zone of treating and saving with everyone they have with everything they've got.

"This Is Now" turns into one hour of intense, emotional fast-paced episode that they haven't done since last season's blizzard episode. But in this case, this was like five times as big with everyone at Med trying to treat victims of a park shooting who can be saved and quickly move on to the next one. Meanwhile, while all of this is going on, Natalie deals with the thought that her son, Owe, might have been there during the shooting and tries to make the calls to her babysitter but no word. Jay was busy trying to find the shooter, who happens to be in the hospital with a severe neck wound but is saved by Rhodes. 

Meanwhile, #Manstead fans would be all in the happiest moment when Will made some calls and went to get Owen and brought him over to Natalie. After seeing and hugging her child, all three were together hugging. 

After what felt like three months of nonstop action, the situation went down, and Goodwin tells the hospital lawyer that her demands of a new CT scanner is not enough of what they have just gone through and asked to more than CT scans and even a bigger ED to handle a massive causality. 

This was one of the best action episodes since last season, with such driven and fast pace stories from one character to another.  It brought me back to the days of ER. Putting characters into situations that they are generally not felt comfortable, that goes for Latham who had to perform surgery in the doctor's lounge in the ED. Even the event put not only put April overwhelmed but even Ethan, who has shaken up after. Overall, I give this episode a 9.5/10.
