April and Choi’s friendship was ruined when Dr Crockett Marcel took Connor’s post
Crockett Marcel (Dominic Rains) was introduced as the night shift doctor in the Season 5 premiere and was soon promoted to literally fill the vacancy left by Connor. He also took care of Connor’s hybrid operating room, so it wasn’t a surprise when fans started comparing the two characters.

April accepted Choi’s marriage proposal, and she didn’t tell him about the kiss until she was hospitalized. Choi broke up with her and chose not one but two quarrels with Crockett, while April continued to long for her ex-boyfriend.
This season, Natalie and Will didn’t get back together
Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto) survived last season’s car crash but lost some of her memory, so she believed her boyfriend Phillip (recurring guest star Ian Harding) when he said they were engaged. However, Natalie eventually called off the fake engagement, and when she regained her memory, she returned to her ex-fiancé, Dr Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss). However, Will told Natalie that after all their breakups and makeup, he realized he was better off without her. He met Doctor Hannah Asher (recurring guest star Jessy Schram) at a safe injection site and went from confronting his drug addiction to having sex with her. Will and Hannah are dating now, while Natalie is thinking about Crockett. And Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) married Ben, a man she met while undergoing chemotherapy. So hey, someone got married, just someone the public was expecting.

Together. When Connor refused her, Ava, now completely deranged, attempted suicide right in front of her and died shortly after.
