Grey's Anatomy Review: Lesbian Lover. Baby Daddy.

at . Comments

On this week's Grey's Anatomy, "Don't Deceive Me," we finally got to see the aftermath of Callie’s shocking revelation. Callie told Mark she was pregnant, and he was incredibly excited until he remembered that he was in love with Lexie and had to tell her. 

When Mark told Lexie at the end of the episode that he got Callie pregnant, she walked out on him after pointing out that Mark was doing this to her for a second time.

Will she forgive him any time soon? It does not seem like Mark is willing to give up being the baby’s father to save his relationship with Lexie.


While Arizona admitted to Teddy that she was not sure if she wanted Mark’s baby, things changed when she saw the baby’s heart beating. At the end of the episode it seemed clear that Arizona and Callie were going to try to make things work. 

Do you think things will go wrong yet again or are they together for the long haul?

Throughout the episode, Callie thought something might be wrong with the baby. Dr. Lucy Fields is her obstetrician. What did you think of her? Is she a good addition to the show? 

Callie eventually admitted to Mark that her fear of losing the baby was tied up with her fear of losing Arizona.

Derek finally began his long-awaited Alzheimers clinical trial. 

Daniel, the second clinical trial patient, began to freak out and requested the presence of the woman he loved, Victoria, who he met at the facility, rather than the presence of his wife.

In perhaps the most emotional moment of the show, Daniel’s wife tearfully begged Alex to give her husband the drug instead of the placebo.

Alex began to feel the pressures involved in helping with such an important clinical trial, and Meredith shared stories about her mother with him to calm him down.

Alex realized that Meredith was the only one strong enough to help Derek with the trial, and, after Alex quit, Derek asked Meredith to help with the clinical trial surgery the next day.

Do you think that it is a good idea for Derek and Meredith to work together? Will the clinical trial hit too close to home for Meredith? It will be interesting to see if she is able to distance herself from the patient.

Another sub-plot involving Derek was his comment to Mark when he found out Callie was pregnant with Mark’s baby. Will Derek and Meredith get jealous of Mark and Callie?

The Chief was annoyed when he found out that Bailey had been tweeting surgeries, but he finally embraced the new technology when it saved a patient. He got excited about teaching again and pulled out Meredith’s mom’s old journals.

Do you think the Chief is going to get more hands on with his teaching again? It was also nice to see Bailey and the Chief’s old-married-couple dynamic in action.

Cristina and Jackson fought over working with Teddy on a quadruple bypass because they both want to be chief resident. Cristina showed that she was not just trying to win the competition but also that she actually has developed good bedside manner when she said to the patient, “[y]ou’ll be great.”

On the other hand, she showed her competitive nature when she tricked Jackson into thinking she was upset by his comment. It’s going to be interesting to see whether Cristina, Jackson, Alex, or someone else becomes chief resident. Any predictions?

Kevin McKidd directed this episode, so Owen was not around much. The scene in which he explained to Chief the difference between “tweets” and “teets” was priceless though.

How do you think Kevin did? How did you feel about the episode overall ? Leave us a comment after browsing through some of the night's best Grey's Anatomy quotes:

Meredith: Doctors practice deception all the time. We give vague answers to hard questions. We don't talk about post-op pain. We say you'll experience some discomfort. If you didn't die, we tell you the surgery went well, but the placebo has to be the doctor's greatest deception. Half of our patients we tell the other truth ... the other half, we pray the placebo effect's real. And we tell ourselves that they'll feel better anyhow, believing help's on the way, when, in fact, we're leaving them to die. | permalink
Sloan: That's my kid in there. I'm a dad. We're parents. A baby!
Callie: Okay, you're in.
Sloan: Should we get married?
Callie: Oh, no. I mean I'm all for raising a baby with you, but there's a line. | permalink
Callie: Words, make words. | permalink
Arizona: I might be having Mark Sloan's baby.
Teddy: Oh good lord, he got to you too. | permalink
Callie: (pointing to Arizona and Mark) Lesbian lover. Baby daddy. | permalink
Lexie: It's like turning off the TV when Clarisse is knocking on the door of the house. It's silencing the lambs, and the lambs want to scream, Dr. Bailey. The lambs want to scream. | permalink
Mark: I don't want to be the cool uncle. The cool uncle's only cool until the kid's like nine and then the cool uncle's just creepy. | permalink
Derek: How can Meredith and I try for months and not have any luck and you look at someone and a baby appears.
Mark: Sloans are unusually fertile. | permalink
Callie: I am a hormone casserole. My body is not my own, and something feels wrong. | permalink
Cristina: Don't give up on yourself. Let us help you. | permalink
Teddy: You really had to go there. You're that insecure.
Jackson: No, just that much of an idiot. | permalink
Chief: I'm trying to look at Bailey's teets on the internet.
Owen: I think you mean tweets, Sir.
Chief: Uh, whatever.
Owen: Uh uh, not whatever. It's important you get that one right. | permalink
Arizona: Shut up. Just shut up. You don't get to tell me that we're not together. We are together. Because I love you and you love me, and none of the rest of it matters. We are together. And if you ever sleep with anyone else again, man or woman, I will kick the crap out of you. Now you sit your ass back down there because that's my baby in there. I don't want anything happening to my baby. | permalink
Alex: I'm off the trial. It's too depressing. I can't handle this for the next two years. | permalink
Meredith: Doctors practice deception every day — on our patients, on their families. But the worst deception we practice is on ourselves. Which is why sometimes it takes us a while to realize that the truth has been in front of us the whole time. | permalink

I love the idea of Calmark having baby. Plus Averi and Lexie would be quite interesting to to see.(Do I hear Averlex? Oooohhhh.)
Plus Lexie and Alex aren't all that great , especially after how he treated after her PTSD.


it's so funny to read all post about who should or should NOT have baby


Calmazona are in for a difficult adjustment period. These three people have a relationship that involves love, bestfriends and parenthood. Not easy.. All have a role to play, and Mark won't except being left out. I think Mark is doing a bit better at understanding Lexie's point of view this time. Mark walked away from parenthood the first time around when he wasn't ready. Lexie would have got involved with Calmark's child if she had stayed. So I'm glad she left. It was Valentines day last year she and Alex got together, so will history repeat itself with Avery this time?


Love Lexie and I think deep down she knows the type of guy Mark is so she is probably more upset that he isn't having safe sex when they break up. The amount of times he has sex, he should at least be safe to prevent **cough cough** pregnancies or diseases...GROW UP MAN and go Lexie!!!


I loved this episode! when christina pretended to be hurt when avery slipped up, and then once he left to go find owen!!! priceless! and the whole twitter thing was so funny!!! best one of the season. i'm getting tired of the callie and arizona thing, and i'm not sure i like this baby thing.
btw, the thing about the extra cells in the liver thing, i told my biology professor the next day, and he gave me extra credit! omg greys anatomy helped me in school!! yippee!!


@Meredith McDreamy. You hang on there & good luck with everything. You right TV couples move on with the speed of light all the time, lol! As I said I'm enjoying watching Cristina & Alex atm, they are committed to their medicine plus Cristina is just hilarious!I'll never forget her little laugh in Season 7 Episode 8 'Something's gotta give', where she quit her job & Callie came to visit her & where Cristina just took a piece of Calls hair off & giggled, that was so sinister, lmao!..that just killed me! I'm not the biggest fun of Mer but I do like the MerDer couple, they are stable & maybe it's boring but at least it's believable.
Looking forward to see how their clinical trial is working out. I fancy to see where Lexie is heading now & I'd much rather Mark to be paired up with someone (maybe Teddy again?), otherwise he's not gonna give Callie & Az any space at all.


@ bazuka74, I'm with you all the way. If I've just left a committed relationship I'm not interested in sleeping with someone else immediately afterwards. Like you said, people are different. Besides, this is television. People seem to get over their feelings very quickly on TV LMAO.


@Doe-Rae-Me Yeah, why not get Lexie pregnant. Since Crowen is going to start talking babies too, lets just have every female doctor jumping on the baby wagon. Personally, I only ever wanted one baby, MERDER'S! But like I said before, everything I want to happen to MerDer never does but are given to other couples instead. I feel cheated having stuck by them for six and a half seasons now. Oh well...

Doe rae me

At this point the only thing I can see saving Mark and Lexie's relationship is another unplanned pregancy--Lexie's unplanned pregnancy to be more precise. Hmm..I wonder what Merideth's reaction to that would be? Callie and Lexie both unexpectedly pregnanct? I hate what this storyline has done to my favorite TV couple--Mark & Lexie.


@Meredith McDreamy. Thank you for your post & I totally agree with you about Callie-Az situation...& you right single people can sleep together, the only thing is Az was out of the country for what?..6-7 weeks & Callie already moved on, lol...I had my heart broken in the past too & it took me much longer to even start looking at someone else, let alone sleep with them.However, we are all different.As long as they happy... @DG. You are absolutely right.I've always considered Lexie quite a mature girl, I like her a lot. Callie-Az SL has been a total mess ever since that Africa thing happened. @andi. Yes, I think Callie & Az SL is too rough, too forced & therefore too unbelievable, total rubbish! Az just jumped into it, it's just so unnatural & the last scene with them was so plastic it was even disturbing to watch it. Just pair them all up: Az with Lexie & Mark with Callie, would be a lot of fun, lmao! Mind you, it would me more realistic than what they are trying to show us now. Thank god for Cristina & Alex, otherwise I wouldn't know what to watch there anymore...& please please make something happen to that male bimbo Avery, every time I look at him I get a sugar shock & just wanna puke, brrrr...
