Grey's Anatomy Review: Head-Standing Fun

at . Comments

Bad outcomes. There risk looms over all of us, but what happens when you grow fearful? For Cristina, it means getting booted off a spinal surgery.

The latest installment of Grey’s Anatomy, "Poker Face,” featured all the residents outside of their comfort zone. So sit down and get ready to dig in to the latest adventures at Seattle Grace.

Oh, Oh, Owen. Cristina and Owen avoided talking by hooking up. All over the hospital. Conference rooms, on call rooms, dirty texts during surgery. They had it all going on, even in front of Webber. Poor Richard. Not once, but twice, did he catch his replacement getting it on. At least it was hot and dirty, you know, stand on your head type of sex.


No Neuro = Happy Marriage. So it looks as though the “not working together/not talking about work” idea is working out for Mer and Der. This is the couple fans have spent the last eight seasons rooting for and loving. I could not have been more pumped to see the two of them back to themselves. Meredith knows her man. She sent Lexie with the scans and Derek realized how great he had it when Mer was on his service. Hopefully these two can get their work lives back together enough they can each practice neuro. Girl is a genius and she deserves to work in the field she wants to.

How cute did Meredith look in her baby pink scrubs? Even if she was an embarrassment to her friends, she just proved it was another field at which she excelled. 

Who else has been waiting for the run in between Mer and Bailey? Miranda ripped in to Mer for helping on the trial, and from the looks of things, that tension is going to spill over to next week.

Case Load. Two cases were front and center on “Poker Face.” Callie worked with Cristina to rebuild a neck and Derek and Lexie operated on one of Mer’s new mothers for a tumor. Both were pretty great. I didn’t realize it until this episode, but I do miss the Callie/Cris time. These two are pretty funny together and are both bad asses. Let’s team these two up together more often. You hear that, Shonda?

The butterfly tumor was one of the most emotional and satisfying cases in recent episodes. They Grey’s formula is back to its original version and boy does it work.

Unhappy Callie

Kepner. Push over. Chief Resident. April finally stood her ground against the other residents and let them know who is boss. Loved the deeper, trying-not-to-be annoying, voice. Karev nailed it when he let loose on her in the hospital. 

The Callie/Arizona/Sloan relationship has taken a backseat so far this season, but that doesn’t stop them from bringing the funny. They say be careful what you wish for, don't they? Callie’s wife and baby daddy as cooking buddies is hilarious. For those of you McSteamy lovers, make sure to check out the latest spoilers. Looks like our boy might not be lonely too much longer.

Poke-Her Face

Joe’s Makes a Quick Appearance...Again! The docs are back to their old ways and for some, that means ending the night at Joe’s Bar. Who else is with me in wanting this to happen way more often?

Overall, another solid episode from Grey’s. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Did you miss Jackson or not even notice he wasn’t around? Are you glad Mer and Der are getting along again? Sound off below, don’t forget to check back for the official Grey’s Anatomy Round Table and get an early look at next Thursday's episode HERE.

yeah...this show is getting worse...i dont even blame the writers...there's nothing much to my opinion, this show is back to where it started....lot of characters that dont mean much to the show like, jackson, teddy, owen etc...cant expect much from a story that already dealt with real emotional scenes, no comedy scenes before...improve it or just let it go guys....its not the worse that could happen...


I would like to see mark have a relationship that makes him humble, also Mer and derrick have their own children by some miracle [the makeup sex that has to come] a surprise to all.


GA Viewer your views are outdated an unacceptable. you won't get anywhere in this world with your racist attitude.


I dont have rent anything to see two girls kissing. Liked it, loved it, and damb proud of it. You dont like it switch the channel. I have to be subjected to seeing straight ppl kissing and half naked all the time. And no im not a heterophobe. Good for Shonda for showing that love is beautiful no matter the race or sex of the couple. Definitely hoping that they thrust more of that into my home!


@ Laura - wow. So this episode gave false hope to someone facing the same challenges? Just because the condition/disease doesn't currently have a history of success in treating it doesn't mean it never will. Most rational people realize they're watching a scripted TV show - not reality TV for crying out loud. And your comment about a possible child had by Christina and Owen using those terms - extremely racist and assumptive. I guess if they were both white, blond haired, and blue-eyed you'd find it acceptable? Get over yourself and learn to make your comments relative - not irrational and racist.


I enjoyed the show, though I think the whole cooking between Mark and AZ was over the top.
1. This is TV. I have a serious bladder disease, if they show someone on the show curing it, that is not going to make me believe their is a cure for my disease. I know this is a fantasy show, I was a nurse at one time, trust me, all that screwing around did not go on in the hospitals I worked in. 2. Bailey is being rude and arrogant and I believe it is unprofessional for her to be acting this way. However, this is TV so anything goes. 3 I agree with what Meredith did. She is a rebel and it was for the chief. If Alex had kept his big jealous mouth shut, everything would have been fine. However, this is TV, need drama. I am glad the chief defends Mer every time he gets a chance. How could she not do it for the chief.
I understand Derek being upset, Bailey is over the top! 4. Gay people have had to watch straight people kiss on TV for decades. Times change, remember there was a time when couples had to sleep in separate beds.
It was a kiss, big deal, if you don't like it, then leave the show. I am straight, however, I am not homophobic and am glad they are discreetly showing that being gay is as acceptable as being straight. There was a time you could not show a black person kissing a white person. We are slowly changing, yay, all men and women are created equal .... I hope they do find Mark a new love interest.
Keppner is annoying, please let her keep the new deeper voice.
I LOVE the Chief! Great actor!
It's still a good show and I look forward to it each week.
I miss several of the old characters...


@gaviewer (first comment above): I just have to say that I'm surprised you know how to use the Internet, since your views are so very, very outdated. The show has moved on, and if you'd prefer to remain in the Victorian age, I certainly hope you *will* stop watching the show and voicing open homophobia on public forums. The representation of Callie & Arizona's relationship on the show is not perfect, but I do credit ABC and Shonda Rhimes for giving us a sorely-needed representation of healthy same-sex love on American network TV.


...i agree the girl kissing made me dislike the epi.....could go without seeing it ever...and no, I am not a homophob!!


Anyone who wants to see two women making out can rent a movie on the topic. I'd prefer not having it thrust into my living room. What ever happened to the art of using language to convey meaning instead of showing examples? I'm about to drop this show from my regular TIVO list anyway because the background music is so annoyingly loud it drowns out the dialogue, which used to be the best part of the show.


April is just so cute and sweet. It's a shame that so many people dislike her, I just don't get it the girl's a sweetheart. Anyway,I do love her and I hope that we'll get to see more of her. Maybe a love interest(Alex?).
