Grey's Anatomy Review: "Disarm"

by at . Comments

Overall, "Disarm" was a good episode. The storyline involving a gunman shooting up a college clearly paralleled what happened at Seattle Grace and allowed all of the doctors’ lingering shooting-related issues to be exposed. Plus, a lot of loose ends were finally tied up.

Meredith told Derek how much him being shot affected her. She explained that he needed to help her just as much as he had been helping Cristina.

They seem to be getting closer again, which the show really needed. Also, there’s the subplot of Meredith and Derek trying to have a baby. Do you think this will happen any time soon? Won’t it change the whole dynamic of the show?

Emotionally Reeling

Meredith, Derek and Richard reflect on the past and what they must do.

It was sad that Cristina Yang had been living in Seattle for so long and did not even know where the Space Needle was, but it was great to see her back in surgery.

The long-awaited reunion with Meredith at the end of the episode did not disappoint. Hopefully, they will be able to restore their friendship to what it was before.

Teddy seems stressed about the wedding, but Henry was very charming at the end of the episode. Will they stay together or will the marriage of convenience backfire?  

What will this do to her relationship with Owen, who is clearly annoyed?

Callie and Arizona are still fighting. They were able to work together professionally, but Callie does not seem to be anywhere near forgiving Arizona.

Do you think that Arizona will wait around until Callie forgives her or will they break up? If the Chief was serious about Arizona having to work under Dr. Stark, there should be a lot of drama in the pediatrics department in upcoming episodes.

Jackson and Bailey showed that they are still not fully recovered from the shooting.

Jackson demonstrated that he’s trying, though, when he spoke sympathetically to the shooter’s mother after walking out of the shooter’s surgery.

Meanwhile, Bailey became very emotional and angry when her patient Chuck started coding, but his survival should help her recover as well.     

Miranda and Owen

Everyone reacted to last night's challenges in his or her own way.

Lexie was panicky for most of the episode, but, after Mark gave her the opportunity to save a patient’s life, she told him she loved him.

Where is this going to go? Mark is historically a commitment-phobe, so we will have to wait and see if he runs or sticks around for good.

How did you feel about the scene where everyone was watching Cristina and Teddy’s surgery and the Chief announced that all 26 victims survived? Everyone broke down into tears and then began laughing hysterically. Clearly, the doctors were exhausted and dealing with post-traumatic stress, but the reaction was pretty intense.

The best scene of the episode was when the crowd sang the Pacific College song outside, and all of the doctors were seen working together in peace for the same goal - saving patients - despite their personal problems.

I dont think that Mer will get pregnant anytime soon, I have a feeling IF and thats a big IF she gets pregnant this season, it will be a cliffhanger on the season finale....

Correction About time too with regard to Mer telling Der she was traumatized too. Mer sorted herself her trauma with no real help from her husband, Mer is a strong woman. This episode did make me feel a lot happier cos it felt like the balance of the storyline had shifted away from Cris. All the 4th year residents scrambling to impress the chief. Arizona getting to grips with working with Stark is gonna be so funny. True the core characters, MerDer are back at the center again. We know Mer's gonna be upset about Der's clinical trial. But I am wondering if the baby thing is gonna happen quicker than Der imagines. MerDer will have to do some major adjusting when Mcbaby appears

Was this the final trigger that set off Laughner to kill Congressman Gifford and the people around her at the Safeway? I think the timing is right and an unstable person could easily have been set off...
