Grey's Anatomy Review: "How Insensitive"

at . Comments

For all of us Grey's Anatomy fans that love bawling our eyes out - this episode was made for us!

Not only did we get closer to finding out all the answers to our questions, but "How Insensitive" really touched the soft spot in our hearts.

Anyone who's had to deal with the loss of a parent would know what we're talking about.


Losing someone you love is tough, but being a child and having a part of your support system taken away is devastating.

The scene where Cristina has to somehow figure out what to say to this child so that she can deal with losing her mom is so heartbreaking. It is true what she said too - that it will hurt a lot in the beginning and will likely always hurt, but after time it starts to hurt less and less.

What we found rather interesting was that Cristina picked Owen over Meredith to have her breakdown on. Seriously?? What does this mean? Not only did she choose Owen, but she told Meredith to go find him! Meredith was right there! Does this mean that Cristina's feelings for Owen are stronger than the bond she has with Meredith?

Meredith even put her friendship with Cristina in front of the sacred marital bond she has with Derek. And really, when does Cristina ever put anyone in front of Meredith.


Another part that had us reaching for the Kleenex was the scene where Bobby told the doctors that he would rather die then let his unborn child see him like that way he is. Sometimes, people get caught up in their own self pity/misery that they fail to see what they are doing to the people around who love them. This situation can pertain to almost anything. Personally speaking, being from the side of the loved ones, it really struck a nerve ending.

We know that there are many many Sloan/Lexi fans out there and we definitely understand that, but there's just something we like about Lexie with Alex. She will never be Izzie, but Alex doesn't need another Izzie. When he kissed her and said:

Alex: You going home?
Lexie: Yeah.
Alex: Wanna go home together?
Lexie: Yeah. | permalink

Yeah, it kind of cemented the fact that we like them together (so not love yet, but most definitely like!!!).

So all the spoilers and rumors are going around that Derek gets shot - but, who shoots him? Would it be crazy April and her fatal attraction she has on him (BTW, April wasn't really a part of this episode - At all! That must mean something really crazy will happen soon!) or Mr. Clark who believes that it is Derek's fault that his wife is dead? This is a tough call, but we still believe it was April because Mr. Clark is thrown in to confuse us and keep us guessing!

What do you think - will Derek get shot, and if so, by whom?

It looks to be the end of Calzona. And as sad as we are (they were a great couple) we knew that this would happen. Like we said before, this is a deal-breaking situation that is bigger than religion. Hopefully, they can figure out a way to still be in each others lives because we don't see either of them budging on this one. They are both at opposite ends of the spectrum.

We loved last night's episode and felt the writers really did a great job!

What did you think? Love it? Think it was just filler before the season finale? Vote:

After the jump, we leave you with a few of our favorite Grey's Anatomy quotes - but, what was your favorite? Did we forget any that you loved? Let us know!

Meredith: No matter how thick skinned we try to be, there's millions of electrifying nerve endings in there. Open and exposed and feeling way too much. Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes it's just unavoidable. Sometimes that's the only thing left - just feeling. | permalink
Derek: Why did you tell Owen what I told you?
Meredith: I didn't - I told him nothing.
Derek: He came to me and said you knew.
Meredith: No, I told him nothing I just looked at him.
Derek: You looked at him. Meredith, when you are pissed your face says everything your thinking. Now I have a staff that can't trust me.
Meredith: So what am I supposed to do? Control my face?
Derek: Yes, you are control your face.
Meredith: Maybe you shouldn't tell me things that you don't want me to know. Control that.
Derek: Then I cant tell you anything. Then 80% of my day is off limits to my wife and I don't want that.
Meredith: Well, I don't want that either. I'm sorry. But I have to tell Cristina. | permalink
Teddy: Yang in or out lets go. | permalink
Cristina: (trying to figure out how Bobby and his wife have sex) Well she's gotta be on top. | permalink
Meredith: She can sit.
Cristina: No she can't. We're talking about S E X.
Nancy's daughter: I'm nine and you just spelled sex. | permalink
Bobby's wife: Now after the news I had to call.
Lexie: The news?
Bobby's wife: We are going to have a baby we're pregnant.
Lexie: How?! I mean, wow! Congratulations! That's joyous news. | permalink
Bailey: So remember to imply your ROC training and you will ROC your patients world. | permalink
Meredith: The skin is the largest organ in the body - it protects us. Holds us together. Literally lets us know what we are feeling. The skin can be soft and vulnerable. Highly sensitive, easy to break. Skin doesn't matter to a surgeon. We will cut right through it, go inside, find out the secrets underneath. It takes delicacy and sensitivity. | permalink
Cristina: I miss my dad. | permalink

I think people are reading waaaaay to into the christina picking owen over mer/mer putting christina first. i don't think that mer/der will always face the problem of mer putting christana first. i think that certain situations are deemed more important than others. yes, for 99% of what derek tells meredith, she needs to keep it to herself. but we're talking about the man in her best friends life, being in love with another woman. btw- she didn't even say anything!!! lol- that's what i find so hilarious about this. she didn't say anything. she looked. because she can read people like a book, and mer is not stupid. and owen feels guilty. i also think that it's natural for christina to turn to owen, when you are in a committed relationship, that person becomes the most important person to you.


OWEN has become a super-hero ,because he reads the thought, but that staff , a surgeon that uses this to exclude Mer from the operation for his flaws.
DEREK that since he's a chief,he commands Mer on what must do and say,other that Mcdreamy,Derek isn't more Derek.
CRI ,but that cabbage MER herself worries and Cri what does...
have not words.
In this show the only man that i like me is ALEX,GREAT-GREAT,the other there aren't more Mcarmy from the trauma problem goes to the choice among two engages. Mcdreamy goes to leave from the show ,because he isn't a stupid,see that his character is becoming. Mcsteamy changes women as his underpantes. I prefer quote are "i love you" by MEREDITH and no "i love you too" by Derek because his kiss was forced.
ALEX"You going home" "Wanna gone home togheter".


I hope Meredith kick his ass. We needs fiesty Mer back lol. I will enjoy seeing him in pain too!


@ fifi There are a lot of things discussed that they just assume we will figure out from episode to episode though. Cristina has to know about Ellis' suicide considering she read her journals with Meredith. MerDer need to get a clue and confide in each other. This last episode pissed me off.


I know! Who the hell does Owen think he is? I am hoping that he'll get his lesson next episode. And I will enjoy it seeing him in pain.


WORD anuflas. That's what I was thinking. I hope from now on Meredith will start to choose Derek and put him first!! I was really sad about Cris choosing Owen. I hated him more than ever. He treated Meredith like crap and he kicked her out of the O.R infront of everyone:/ It is not Mer's fault that he is a jerk and a liar!!


I hope that this is a wake up call to Meredith in knowing that Cristina will eventually move on and Derek will still be there. She should put her marriage a priority. I can't blame Derek if he chooses to leave stuff out. Been there, done that. Cristina always had someone (Burke and now GI Joe) before Meredith. I don't know why this is a shock but I do find it unfair and a little selfish from Cristina given the sacrifices that Meredith does. I still hate GI Joe. I just might get into Alex/Lexie. He makes Lexie tolerable.


Who played the fat guy on the May 6 episode?


I think in the finale that Gary Clark will shoot Meredith because he wants Derek to feel the same kind of pain that he is feeling/felt in regards to his wife's death. Perhaps April will be the person that helps Meredith....? That would be a twist! I also really like Alex and Lexie together, they have good chemistry and I think that Callie should get together with Mark and have a baby, they're great together!


I like Lexie and Alex sooooo much... They are better than Mark and Lexie...
And even if Callie and Arizona are breaking my heart... I always think that Callie and Mark have to be togheter... Sorry for my english but i'm italian...

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 21 Quotes

So remember to imply your ROC training and you will ROC your patients world.


The skin is the largest organ in the body - it protects us. Holds us together. Literally lets us know what we are feeling. The skin can be soft and vulnerable. Highly sensitive, easy to break. Skin doesn't matter to a surgeon. We will cut right through it, go inside, find out the secrets underneath. It takes delicacy and sensitivity.
