Grey's Anatomy Recap: "Tainted Obligation"

by at . Comments

As the residents of Seattle Grace continue to freak over looming budget cuts, bigger problems made sure those were the last things on their mind - at least for this week.

Meredith's father Thatcher has played an enormous role on Grey's Anatomy, even if he seldom appears on it. Mer's daddy issues are dark, twisty and well-documented.

So when he showed up last night needing a liver transplant to survive - and unable to get a donor liver because he hasn't been sober for a year (just 90 days), you can imagine the tension in the room. It got worse when it turned out Lexie wasn't a match. Meredith was.

What decision did she make? Did he end up surviving? And what other resident let her emotions get the best of her yet again, leaving her future a bit up in the air?

Follow the link for a recap of last night's Grey's Anatomy, "Tainted Obligation."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
