Grey's Anatomy Review: "Disarm"

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.

@BOB there were a few songs in the episode what part of the episode did the song come on


Does anyone know what the song was in the episode "Disarm"? The song had a line "get it in motion".


@LIL T look at my answer for is just instrumental music thats been on greys for many seasons, you're bound to find it if you watch some old episodes... :)


@Addie, that isn't a song per se...its recycled instrumental music, and has been used on Grey's for many seasons, that is probably why you thought you have heard it before :)


Does anyone know what the song is that is playing in the background pretty much the whole ending?? its all piano but i really want to know what it is!! its not on the soundtrack listing i was looking at because it doesn't have lyrics


@KristenR1983 yes this one! exactly when the chief starts his speech about the victims..


I think the whole thing about Arizona working for Stark was put to add to the comedy of that scene. And I think it'll be pretty funny watching that go on for a few episodes but over-all I agree that Stark needs to leave.


The ONLY thing that made me reconsider about not making this one the best ep of the season was when the chief made AZ work FOR Stark. Really. STARK MUST LEAVE.


One of those awesome episodes that reminds me of the early seasons. If Callie really is prego, Lexie/Mark will have their fall out, again.
Owen annoyed? Hell yes! She's your best friend, It's time to be a little protective.


@addie, are you talking about the instrumental music at the end when they are up in the gallery?
