After a few ‘hit and missed’ episodes Grey’s Anatomy finally felt like Grey’s Anatomy again. Some scenes were so familiar and yet different, like a sense that brings very old memories to the surface, like a déjà vu- Derek and his notorious ferry boats scrub cap, Alex and Arizona on a plane having a talk, Cristina in scrubs standing under the running water (this probably brought memories from the bomb in a body cavity episode when Meredith was the stressed one standing in the shower in scrubs with Cristina and Izzie)
The ongoing story with the three heart sick kids had a sad and tragic development when one of them died.
Dr. Robbins was one of the doctors fighting for Frankie’s life. This was a reason enough for her to set a foot on a plane again… and Alex was there with her. The scene threw us back in time, back in season 5. All the moments that Alex and Arizona shared together in this episode just showed us how much their teacher/ student relationship and friendship has developed during the years. Still Alex is being Alex and Arizona is being Arizona- stubborn and straightforward with each other. It’s always such a delight when these two show some vulnerability and openness, the way they honestly and sincerely care for each other
There was some development on Calzona frontline- the wives did some baby planning and how they were going to approach the matter of taking care for the future baby. Of course April popped up in the middle of the talk and couldn’t help herself but expressed her own opinion. Since Dr. Torres doesn’t like much people to tell her how to do her own stuff she shot April with a very hilarious line and both she and Arizona were left speechless.
Meanwhile in the hospital:
- Turned out that Dr. Yang had all the votes to win the Harper Avery award;
- Derek’s junkie sister paid a surprising visit;
- Dr. Bailey crossed the line with her bubble boy;
- Avery started trimming the doctors’ research projects;
- Alex decided to accept the offer from the private practice;
- Dr. Webber had intentions to propose to Mama Avery;
- April is pregnant;
