Grey's Anatomy Recap: "Tainted Obligation"

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?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

You want to be a mess, be a mess. I don't care. I can take it.

Alex

It's one of those things that people say, you can't move on until you let go of the past. Letting go is the easy part, it's the moving on that's painful. So sometimes we fight it, try and keep things the same. Things can't stay the same though. At some point, you just have to let go. Move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it's the only way we grow.

Meredith
