@OhNoes Wow. You're making me hate Teddy. And you're right that Cristina's heart will be broke, times 2. Owen AND Cardio. :\ @anuflas Haha, wow, I just noticed that too!


Watching Derek being chief is very frustrating to me.
To me Derek being Chief and being unhappy about it is like Derek trying to make it work with Addison and being unhappy about it. Back then Derek choose Addison but he was unhappy about it because he didn't love Addison anymore, he loved Meredith. Now Derek is chief, because he thinks is what he wants, and he thinks is the right thing for SGMWH, but he is unhappy about the job, because he loves surgery and hates the administrative side of it. So is very frustrating because Derek knows this fact about himself and yet he still willing to continue to torture himself with doing the job that he doesn't like, is like he didn't learn this lesson back in season 2.


I´ll just watch OC scenes from now on. First they kill George, then Izzie leaves, now they completely transfiormed Owen into this guy who is in love with two women! WTF? Owen and Teddy have zero chemistry. I won´t watch how they ruin the best couple on this show. Oh And they´ll probably break up Calzona. I think I´ll watch Fringe instead. I believe this episode is the begining of the end for Grey´s.


Oh, and another thing. Richard being selfless about the Chief situation and thinking of Derek and his emotional connections seem a little unbelievable and OOC. Richard may have good intentions on some sort but I really don't think that's the case.


Nah, that's not it. Derek did rush but the only career damaged is going to be his and not Meredith's. The only reason Richard is a better Chief is because he has more experience than Derek. That's why. I didn't see Evans comments as doubting Mer's abilities as a doctor. How can you not know that Derek was talking about Mer as a person and as a physician? I loved that he said that because it means that Derek speaks good of her. If instead it had been Addison, Evans would most likely say the same thing he told Mer (and let's face it, Addie being a double board certified whatever title she has, that would be a bigger impact than a resident). Derek has been Mer's advocate in situations that she doesn't has control of. I believe that Meredith would eventually understand if he had to reprimand her of some sort.


Don't you see people Webber doesn't want Derek to be chief, because Derek is emotionally attach to the people that work for him. Derek is marry to Meredith, Cristina is his wife best friend. Owen is his wife best friend boyfriend. Mark is his best friend, Lexie is Meredith's sister, Alex is Meredith's friend who lives in their house. Callie is Mark best friends. Webber is his mentor, who happens to be the ex-lover of his wife's mother and Webber is a father figure to his wife as well. Now think about this, if Meredith screws up at her job and Derek by norm is force to do something about it what do you think that is going to do to their marriage? Derek is not taking into consideration that his wife is not an attending that she is a resident, and he is her boss. That maybe Derek should've waited until Meredith was little ahead in her training before keeping the job as chief of surgery. Derek is not thinking that he being Chief can harm Meredith in the long run. Look what the guest cardio surgeon said to Meredith, that all the praises that Derek gave Meredith he takes in a grain salt. The guest cardio surgeon was practically doubting Meredith skills as a doctor because the Chief is her husband. So maybe Webber saying the things that he is saying is so that Derek takes a hint and quits. Webber was a better chief because he doesn't have an emotional attachment with anyone,maybe except Meredith. Webber's wife wasn't a doctor, so he didn't have to worried about the choices he makes as chief will affect his wife. Derek does and he doesn't seem to think they are affecting Meredith. We may not be seeing them now, but you all will see how Derek being Chief affect Meredith's career. Derek rush into being Chief, is not his time to be Chief, he should've waited.


See, that's what I sorta don't understand. Why is loyalty all the sudden important to Richard? Because finally somebody (Derek) was able to defy it? I mean, Richard brought Addie without Derek's consent. He pursued her to stay in SGH (he told her to stay for him and not Derek) because it's 'good for the hospital'. Later, he offered Mark a contract because 'it'd bring twice the revenue of Neuro'. Richard was aware of the pain that they caused Derek, yet he chose SGH. That's not loyalty to his people, that's loyalty to the hospital. Richard did what's best for the hospital, just what Derek did. He chose the best surgeon instead of his best friend's flavor of the month and Hunt's friend. Derek was acting like Richard. Derek did what Richard has been doing all along. Now all of the sudden, it's not the right choice?


I know they're not the same - different situations.
But it's still a case of the chief (wether Derek or Richard) having to fire someone they know - and the whole question of loyalty that ran through the Richard firing people AND Derek ousting Richard for the chief job. I think Richard was all happy and excited when he thought Derek chose Teddy. Maybe he thought Derek was learning how to be chief without needing Richard to tell him what to do. And then part of him dissapointed that he didnt. Interesting dynamics.


Actually, that is exactly what the writers are trying to portray here with Derek. Stumbling in the job. Also, Derek/Teddy situation is not the same as Richard/April/Izzie situation. I don't see the relevance in both cases for comparison. I just noticed...Teddy is second everyone! LOL. Shouldn't that be an indication Desert Storm Barbie?


I must admit I really dont like Derek's character at the mo. Him being chief just doesnt work.
Obviously there has to be a chief, and being a chief while interacting with all the doctors brings questions of power and authrotiy into play, which can be very unsettling/ uncomfortable especially between people who are also friends (as Derek noticed). BUT - I thought when the Chief was chief (Webber); there was no uncomfortable side to him being the chief. He seemed natural in it. Because he's older I suppose, because he isnt friends with everyone like Derek is and because he's been chief for 5 seasons so it seems 'right' to the audience. But I also think Derek just doesnt fit it. He just seems quite power hungry, exerting his authority over people in a non-smooth way. The Chief (Webber) was funny as chief. He had authority in a very firm and secure way. Derek seems to take himself a bit too seriously... Oh and the whole Teddy thing, the last bit where Derek tells 'The Chief' he only hired Teddy because Evans didnt want the job... I didnt like that. And Webber obviously knew that wasnt the right thing to do. But then Richard did fire Izzy, and that wasnt very loyal - but he knew that and I think that's one of the many reasons he fell into the Alcoholic spiral. He felt guilty for firing Izzy, he knew it wasnt the right thing to do. Just like now he knows hiring Teddy IS the right thing to do. I think Derek wanting to hire Evans is part of his whole power/ ambition hungry thing. There's a reason Richard hired Teddy in the first place, and there's a reason Cristina thinks Teddy is amazing. And I think Teddy is a great doctor WITHOUT being perfect and cold and arrogant like Burke/Erica and Evans. Why would Derek criticize Richard for firing Izzy & April and re-hire them, if he does the same thing to Teddy.... On another note, if Owen and Teddy get together, Cristina's heart would be broken x 2. She would lose Owen AND Cardio. I also really thought it was sweet how Mark was upset Teddy would leave. But then how do they jump from that to Mark sleeping with Reed. Im guessing Teddy gets with Owen OR Mark realises Teddy is in love with Owen and he cant deal with that.


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
