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.

I did not like last nights epi. I cannot stand April, she is so annoying. Why is Alex always getting dumped on? He was removed from the heart surgery.He was the only one who had five bad surgeries. Why can't this poor man be given a decent story line? Where is Izzie? Why can't we meet his family? Why is the show always about annoying April? I have enjoyed this season so far, but this last epi was the pits.


I love this season of Grey's Anatomy, we are back to the way it was in season's 1 & 2, the fire is back. It was missing for a while. Looking forward to more new episodes. Bailey was a little spitfire yelling at Meredith, she was very much the Nazi in this episode. For an old guy Lee Majors looked hot and still looks good. Hope to see Meredith back in her light blue scrubs real soon, even though she looked good in baby pink.


.. it's been a long time since I've commented- and I realize this post isn't specifically about this, one episode.. but it's so great to see Meredith has grown from a 'dark and twisty', frightened-of-intimacy loner into THE best wife, ever! I'm not as invested in the show as I was during those first 1-4 intense seasons, when drama outweighed the now-lighter, more formulaic fare, but my affection for the character of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo- Bravo!) has remained constant. and for whatever reason(s), all through this episode, I kept thinking, she's become the best partner a guy could dream up.. ! vows on a post-it. no wedding dress. botched clinical trial on her record a hostile uterus. who cares when you've got Meredith Grey?!


I love April, she's so cute


I love it, Enthusiastic & Hilarious!
I like happy-hot-sexy secen more than drama!
Kevin Mckidd direct this one epi who has great talent, good Job!


Loved this epi. It was extremely satisfying to see badass Callie back and taking control at home and in the OR. Her little speech to Mark was funny and on point. And Mark took it like a man. And loved, loved the Callie/Cristina interaction. It was a really nice surprise to see Lee Majors and Marilu Henner. And I for one love Mer's pink scrubs but the whole 'you're embarrassing us' was hilarious..By this time last season was already fizzling out. This season is just picking up steam. So far, I'm loving it! Oh, and Owen and Cristina were sooo funny! Owen's facial expressions are gold!


No matter how much they try, I hate April ! Mer should be the one in dark blue color and not her ! Love MerDer, Lexie and Karev ! :)


im glad mer and der is back.. i really wish they will have their own baby! why not shonda???


Very clever steady episode and yipppeee jumping on the couch Mer/Der back together and happy finally. Best line was definately go have sex with him and make him happy again. Also liked the end, Derek now wants to break the rule and talk about Neuro, glad Mer stood her ground and said No just come here. Also when Mer was talking to the dad with the baby you so could tell she was missing and thinking about Zola, the same when Derek was talking to him as well he was looking at that baby and thinking about Zola was so beautiful done.
Ok bring on next week, baseball time.


Although i didn't like April at all when she joined the cast i must say that she won me over, she sweet and funny and i feel she has lots of potential, it would be nice to see a love interest for her. i started to like her even more than lexi and what can i say, i think i'm over izzy:).
