Grey's Anatomy Review: Still Want That Second Chance?

by at . Comments

Last night’s Grey's Anatomy, "Start Me Up," was terrific, creating a bunch of new loose ends and concluding with one of the all-time cliffhangers. Seeing how the different relationships develop the rest of the season should be interesting to say the least.

Callie is still so angry with Arizona, but Kyle’s speech about his undying love for Brady (Callie’s patient) seemed to hit home with her. It was great to see “Ricky” from My-So Called Life playing Kyle in such a poignant, albeit minor, role. 

When Brady forgives Kyle for getting him hurt, Callie grows quiet and seems to wish she could do the same with Arizona, who spends the entire episode trying to make up with both Callie and Sloan - and clearly looking for an ally in Mark. 

Little does she know ...

She's Back, But ...

Arizona might want to look for a new sublet option.

At the end, Arizona apologizes yet again to Callie, only to have her admit (as the Grey's Anatomy spoilers have hinted for weeks on end) that she is pregnant with Sloan’s baby.

Do you think this will keep Arizona from pursuing a relationship with Callie? How would the dynamic between Arizona, Callie, and Sloan work if they did get back together? 

It’s kind of difficult to picture the three of them and a baby living together happily ever after. Also, Callie hasn’t even told Sloan about the baby yet. He has expressed his desire to have a child in the past, but now he is finally back together with Lexie.

How do you think Sloan and Lexie will react to the news?

Meredith is concerned about getting pregnant, and it seems like this is going to be a recurring issue going forward. She and Derek look like they are doing well again, and he is being very supportive. It is ironic that Callie got pregnant, while Meredith can’t.

Think that will cause tension between them in upcoming episodes as well?

When Henry’s medical problems get more and more serious throughout the episode, Teddy begins to second guess her decision to marry him so spontaneously.

She is upset when the Chief chastises her and tells her that she must make Henry’s medical decisions because she is listed as his emergency contact.

When Henry confides in Teddy, however, that he has no one else left because of his recurring medical problems, a wall is broken down and they bond. 

When Teddy sits on Henry’s bed holding his hand, it's clear there is something between them. Do you think Henry will ultimately be a love interest or a close friend? It seems like Henry is filling the void that Owen left in Teddy’s life when he married Cristina.

Cristina showed at the end of the episode that she is capable of being nurturing and could be a good chief resident. Who do you think will eventually get that honor?

Alex won the little contest according to the Chief, but he was only successful because he was trying to win over his attractive student. Alex is back to his old tricks.

A New Couple Alert?

Totally inappropriate relationship? Maybe, but an awesome one too.

Dr. Bailey and Eli are adorable together, but Dr. Bailey made a little speech to Teddy about how she could never have a serious relationship with Eli or bring him home to meet her son.

Do you think they will continue to date? If so, will it ever become more serious despite Bailey’s reluctance? So many unanswered questions remain after this outstanding hour.

After this week’s cliffhanger, next week’s episode and beyond should make for great TV. Until then, we leave you with some Grey's Anatomy quotes from last night ...

Callie: You want a second chance?
Arizona: Yes. I'll do anything.
Callie: Today I found out that I'm pregnant. With Mark's baby. How about now. | permalink
Meredith: It's all anybody wants, right? Clean slate. A new beginning. Like that's gonna be any easier. Ask the guy pushing the boulder up the hill. Nothing's easy about starting over. Nothing at all. | permalink
Arizona: What the hell do I have to cop to to make her give me another chance?
Sloan: You bail. When things get hard, you bail. | permalink
Teddy: Life and death decisions wasn't part of our deal. | permalink
Sloan: I'd choose her over you in the divorce. You know that, right? | permalink
Dr. Bailey: I think you're dirty. That's what I think.
Eli: You want to be dirty with me? | permalink
Chief: You've signed a marriage license, and you haven't asked him the most basic questions on how he wants to live or die. | permalink
Chief: Also it's funny when they fall down. | permalink
Callie: Things don't go the way you want them to. Ever. | permalink
Arizona: Ok, I know I'm not perfect, and I know sometimes I don't listen, and I'm sorry about that, so here I am ready to listen.
Callie: Um, ready to listen.
Arizona: Like a priest at confession. | permalink
Meredith: Well, the thong is unprofessional. | permalink
Chief: This is a totally inappropriate relationship. Totally inappropriate. | permalink
Sloan: You're a crappy listener. Add that to the list. | permalink
Cristina: Ok, you think peeing is exhausting. Wait 'til you have a muling, poo-covered infant hanging off of your boobs 24-7. | permalink
Chief: We are doctors. We save people's lives every day without marrying them. You marry someone you love. | permalink
Meredith: People are really romantic about the beginnings of things. Fresh start. Clean slate. A world of possibility. But no matter what adventure you're embarking on, you're still you. You bring you into every new beginning in your life, so how different can it possibly be. | permalink
Meredith: The baby doesn't want to set up shop in a hostile uterus. | permalink
Arizona: Well, now I'm your subletter. Hooray? | permalink
Callie: My lack of interest in seeing you is not a strategy. I'm not playing hard to get. I don't want to see you because I turned my life upside down for you and you walked away because for a week I was cranky. You're untrustworthy, so I don't want to see you. You're self-centered, so I don't want to see you. I am a hundred percent certain that if I let you back in my life again you will hurt me again, so I don't want to see you. This isn't a ploy. I'm not pouting. I don't want you in my life. Get your crap out of my apartment. | permalink
Teddy: That's disgusting.
Henry: Yeah, I wouldn't eat it if I were dying. | permalink

Interesting eppy! I think Alex will make chief resident. It will be hard choosing between Meredith and Cristina, so I think it'll be Alex. I was reading a comment below that stated that abortion, etopic pregnancy, miscarriage and adoption couldn't happen with Callie's baby because it has already been done. I'm tempted to agree. But what if Meredith still can't get pregnant when it's time for Callie's baby to be born - and she and Derek for some reason adopt it?

Didn't the chief get suckered by karev? Karev was only interested in impressing his student so he could sleep with her. Not sure that will be OK for any chief resident to exploit that situation. Shame there was no right of reply for the residents who got poor evaluations. Hope those med students don't turn up again

And on Calzona, I'm on Callie's side. Now we'll see if Arizona can really handle getting back with her now that Callie's pregnant with Mark's baby. It shouldn't too bad, Callie always wanted a kid...the fact that it's Mark's is the only thing that can complicate it. With Lexie and Mark especially. Good episode. Next week again :)

This is a pretty good episode. So a McBaby is on the works, that should be exciting. There are a lot of good stuff in this episode. Cristina is back to her old self, giving her first-year med student a hard time. It's funny that they found that they're being evaluated and Alex is the only one who got a good evaluation. He did well and he got the girl. Bailey and her nurse is just so cute. She's having fun. Rebound guy. And Teddy and Henry, it's getting a little Izzie and Denny-like. I think Henry is feeling like he's taking advantage of Teddy but she sees the marriage as business but I think he wants to make it more than that. It's hilarious how the Chief found out that Teddy married Henry. Good episode. And by the way, Off the Map wasn't too bad. But I really was looking forward to a new episode of Private Practice. Next week again :)

A lot of people may think that things between Mark and Lexie will be ruined because of the pending baby, seeing as he's always wanted one and she's young but i'm going to hold onto the thought of maybe Shonda showing a commited Lexie to the situation. You know Shocked... But Committed. I Hope

OMFG!!! I really don't get it! Grey's has a 8 season in the future!! And u know what, for that season we need a storline, we need the mcbaby, because maybe will be the last one!! Now, is time for the others. Grey's habe been, in all the years, about Mer and Der!!! We must move on...
I love Calzona, Slexie, Teddy and Henry...more than MerDer!! So please, respect the others and be patient...I know how hard is, but Calzona deserves a better storieline too.
Sorry about my english!!

My heart is Breeeaaaaking! I am such a huge Calzona fan and I really hope Az doesnt leave Callie! Yes, drama will ensue- I mean come on, Shonda loves to kick us when we're down:)- but there is no way I am dropping it now. It's gonna work out because Shonda has promised that Calzona and McSlexie are MFEO. I have watched since season one, episode one, and I dont plan on stopping because a wrench has been thrown. Was Addison not a wrench for MerDer? And how many of you have stopped watching because of it? What about Denny for Azzie? Or Teddy for Huntina? All I know is that Callie is gonna be adorable with a baby bump and I plan on sticking around to see it.
