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.

Adi - the last song was "For You" by an Aussie band called Tin Sparrow


everyone hates kepner but i love her glad to see her standing her ground and being chief resident and just really growing it funny to watch personally
i dont really care that lexie is back
this is probably an unpopular opinion but im on bailey's side when it comes to meredith though i do think bailey at times it really harsh on her but then again i can see why she doesnt trust her and thus doesnt want to work with her


Karev making fun of Kepner was like the best thing ever! i almost pee myself, his imitation of her was funny and accurate :D Loved MerDer in this episode, and then again there is proof that Mer is who should be chief resident and not Kepner ;)

Finally, an episode I loved this season!!! My McDreamy is back. Without him being sexy with Meredith, Grey's doesn't work for me. Their chemistry is unbelievable! I loved the Mark/Owen/Derek scene. So funny. Loved the scenes with Mer and Richard. Owen and Cris were hilarious even though I don't love Owen. So glad Lexie is back. Have sex with him to make him nice was my favorite line. Glad Derek is struggling in the OR without Mer! All I want now is for Mer to get out of her pink scrubs and back into neuro where she belongs!! So glad Meredith stood up to Bailey! She is a talented gifted doctor and deserves Chief Resident. April is annoying as hell and nothing she does will make me warm up to her.


Who is the man who played the father in poker face?? He and his wife just had a baby on this episode. He's from a movie and can't remember who he is. Helpppp??


Does anybody know what the last song in this episode is called like?
