    What I've unsuccessfully tried...
    - force quitting Chrome in Activity Monitor
    - cmd+opt+esc ...Chrome doesn't even show up in the list of open applications
    - Terminal quitting via "killall Google\ Chrome"
    - Terminal quitting via "killall Chrome"
    - Terminal quitting via "kill -9 [processID]"

    Activity Monitor still shows Google Chrome (Not Responding) and I was able to force quit all of the Google Chrome Helper processes without a problem. My dock icon doesn't show that Chrome is open and I can't switch to the app via cmd+tab.

    I still have a Chrome window that shows the pinwheel whenever my cursor is over it and am lost what to do. Should I just restart my MBP?

    Not a big deal, why not just restart lol? Its not like you lose all you stuff on restart. Have you tried sudo? After the restart you should use Safari.
