Grey's Anatomy Review: Finding Ways To Recover

at . Comments

Grey’s Anatomy was all about "Bad Blood" tonight, an episode which focused on the changes the hospital is now facing since the lawsuit, plus some totally brutal cases. Time to talk Seattle Grace...

Good Cop/Bad Cop. Callie and Arizona kept their entertaining parenting going with a typical parental argument over dressing their daughter. Lucky for us, this carried over into dealing with a 13-year old gymnast who had her hips replaced. 

My heart broke for this girl. Not that at age 13, I knew what I wanted to do in life. But for these people that are lucky enough to know and then have it taken from them... it’s brutal.

There Will Be Blood. Yang and intern Leah worked on a patient who happened to be a Jehovah’s Witness. This meant that although he was a cardiac patient, he could not have a blood transfusion. Of course as a doctor, you want to save your patient. So what do you do when you can’t take the measures that are the best option? For Leah? You try and go behind everyone’s back.

Looks like we have a new generation Izzie on our hands. The new cameras placed around the hospital kept her from doing the deed, but she definitely tried. Yang kicked her off of her service and rightfully so. You can’t go against a patient’s wishes.

Efficiency? Cahill continued her path through Seattle Grace to make things more “efficient.” This included having cameras installed around the hospital (hello Big Brother!) and the cutting of the ER. 

April and Derek came up with a plan to save the ER, which had Derek in a bullying position and April admitting people don’t like her. Who else still loves when these two work together?

Owen worked his magic by having Cahill stay in on a surgery with him. Once she got her hands dirty, she definitely recognized the importance of the ER. But it didn’t matter. Girlfriend is setting SG up to be sold. I instantly hate her. 

Working on Her Technique

Flutter. Meredith let her guard down with her fears of being pregnant, just long enough to thing something was wrong. Turns out, she was feeling her baby kick for the first time. Shonda, I am warning you. If something goes wrong with this pregnancy, you will be on my list! 

Side Notes:

  • How hilarious was Bailey in the hernia competition? Especially when she threw out the Hunger Games reference. 
  • Anyone else think Bob the Camera is a little creepy? Although, as long as Yang keeps talking to it, I’m in.
  • Leah got center stage as the intern for the night. Enjoyable or not at all? To be honest, I had to look up her name again...
  • How adorable was Derek and Meredith at the end feeling the kicking? Love them!
Overall, an average episode for the veteran series. Not one of the best, but definitely not one of the worst. There is only so much drama you can fit in an hour, but without a lot of it, us Grey’s fans aren’t really sure what to do!

I liked this episode but I like the episodes center around the original actors with the guest actors. There are just way too many of the sub characters that nobody cares about. It looks like Shonda just throws in as many as she can and the stories get lost in it. But really her objective is to make Scandal her #l show. I don't see it.

Such a great episode!
How cute are Christina and Owen, how long that will last I have no idea but they are sweet!
I liked April this episode, her and Derek working together to try and keep the ER open was great! Derek has some great negotiating skills. However it was all for not as we find out that Cahill is prepping to sell SGMW. I knew that was what was going to happen but it still was sad to hear. I really hope the others pool some of their settlement to save the hospital.
It is like Mer to think there is something wrong and it was sweet of Bailey to follow her and touch her tummy and say it was just the baby kicking.
The scene at the end with Mer and Der was cute.
It did not bother me when Izzie broke the rules but I was mad at Leah.
No mention of Jackson? He was super funny!


I missed intern Heather. Where is she at? Is it because the actress is filming a pilot that she hasn't been in it these past few episodes?
As for the episode itself, I must say that I really enjoyed the storyline between Cristina and Leah. Made for some good teaching and a twist seeing as Leah's actions were probably something Yang would have down when she was an Intern.


@a The name of the actor playing the hernia instructor is Andy Milder.
You can check where else he has appeared at IMDB I loved this episode especially the wonderful quotes.


So the plane crash survivors are going to buy the hospital instead of the other buyer. Predictable.


I think Cahill needs to get the cahell out of dodge before the GA fan posse puts a cap in her scrubs. This episode, in my not-so-humble opinion, was a prime example of a storyline written by an overwhelmed writer. It was helter-skelter and quite honestly; a mess. I have never questioned Shonda's writing abilities...but too many unrelated meats mingling in the same pot? Something's going to get burned. I'm upset that "something" is Grey's.


@ a "Does anybody know who played "Daryl" or the Hernia Instructor? I know I've seen him before." He played a brother on criminal minds with frontal lobe damage who used battery acid to burn womens body parts and then rape them because he loved his brothers wife or something. He had a lisp in the episode. What is up with this reviewer? "Not a bad episode for a veteran show." I thought this epsiode was pretty good actually, and it's a nice season long plot. What else do you expect? We can't have emotional episodes every single one.


Where is Broox the intern? she was grea. but i like all of them


i loved the BAILEY SCENES. its all on youtube


Does anybody know who played "Daryl" or the Hernia Instructor? I know I've seen him before.
