“Leave It Inside” took us one step closer to Grey’s Anatomy season finale. More or less the Grey’s Anatomy writers started setting up the scene for a few plots, that will be developing in the last two upcoming episodes.
Last Thursday’s episode was all about giving a chance to life, love and people.
The medical case with little Liam was very touching and once again we saw why Alex Karev is good for the Paeds Department. Certainly, he overstept and disregarded the boy’s parents’ wishes, but prayers are not enough for a tumor to disappear. It was a brave decision, that both Alex and Edwards made and even braver that they stuck to their cover up story regardless of the many people they managed to piss off. Sweet Liam needed help and wanted to live and his parents failed to see, initially, that actually Karev was the answer to their prayers.
And then there was this young lady and her heart tumor. It’s always amazing how some people bravely and fiercely accept the reality that soon they won’t be anymore among the living. Her storyline was injected with a pinch of humour, which comes to tell us that life shouldn’t be taken so seriously, that life is there to be lived to the fullest. And some of her doctors actually started considering her words.
Surprisingly, this time, Dr. Pierce seemed to be quite settled and accepting with Meredith’s new relationship with Nathan Riggs.
Speaking of relationship and a chance in love, Arizona’s new found love looks very promising and flourishing. Finally, after waiting for years on end, the fans of Dr. Robbins have been given something to root for, to anticipate and to keep them glued to the small screen. All the scenes in the episode have been charged so much with positivity, easy-going and flirty attitude from the two characters. Arizona and Minnick’s talks have been so open and honest, every word coming from the heart. The elevator scene was a very intense one, charged with sexual desire. This long elevator love speech was Arizona’s way of telling Minnick how much she was in love, words of someone, who is deeply in love.
The elevator scene is one of the best love confessions ever written by the writers. Even Meredith Grey’s “Pick me, choose me, love me” speech is nothing compared to Arizona’s.
There is such a smooth flow of understanding between Robbins and Minnick. And certainly, Dr. Minnick needed to hear those words. Her confident persona tends to be quite insecure and vulnerable when Arizona is in the vicinity.
Finally, Dr. Robbins has been given a chance for another great love experience, a chance to love and be loved.
To sum up, the residents have been put under evaluation and Dr. Minnick doesn’t like to compromise. Meredith is really moving on from Derek and Deluca tried to reveal his feelings to Jo. Unfortunately, not always when we give a chance to something, it means that it is wort to take the risk and when we give a chance, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we should also be given one.
