Grey's Anatomy Review: This Is a Family

at . Comments

Even after all of these seasons, you still can’t help but love Grey’s Anatomy. Especially when it come sout with an episode such as "The Face of Change," an installment that has all your favorite parts wrapped up in just 60 minutes. Let’s talk about it.

Sneaking Around. Normally when you think of the docs sneaking around, it’s with each other. Not this time. All of the leads banded together to take on a trauma patient without the ER. Even with the new cast, this felt like old times. The group sticking together, covering for each other and doing its best to perform the medicine they were trained to do.

It didn’t hurt that Cristina was yelling out her dwarf names: Happy... Mouse...Ponytail...Dopey...

This was a risky move and not totally realistic anywhere other than Seattle Grace Mercy West. The writers did an excellent job in bringing in the patient by way of April and her new potential paramedic boyfriend. Way to tie things in in a sensible way.

Docs In Surgery

Competition Time. In an attempt to sell the hospital to Pegasus, Jackson and Alex were put in the running to be the brand ambassador. This led to some hilarious one-liners that are worth checking out on the Grey’s Anatomy quotes page. 

The not official girlfriends were into the competition as well. Stephanie and Jo went to bat for their guys regarding who should be the mug of the hospital. Again: hilarious. 

But, of course, it was Derek’s gorgeous face that made its way onto the elevator doors. Even though it was a little creepy looking, you can’t go wrong with McDreamy. 

It is not a horse. It’s a pegasus. The company looking to buy SGMW owns another hospital that Callie and Webber went to check out. These two have such great chemistry together. First playing husband and wife, then again as reps from Pegasus. I knew it would be Callie that would break about the hospital and come up with the idea to buy it. The thing I didn’t expect? That Richard has an early retirement package waiting for him. Personally, I don’t want to see a Grey’s Anatomy episode without James Pickens Jr. in it. 

Jalex? Looks like the worst kept secret will be coming true sooner rather than later. Jo and Alex are definitely on the path towards a couple - and it is a pretty great path. Everyone sees it, Meredith told Alex to go for it and by the end of the hour, it looked like Alex saw it for himself. Seriously, these two need to happen now. 

Side Notes

  • Alex did the voiceovers in this episode. Pretty cool way to change things up.
  • How cute are April and Matthew, the paramedic cutie?
  • How much do you hate Cahill? 
  • Check out the EXCLUSIVE TV Fanatic interview with Constance Zimmer on her character. 

Overall, another great episode from Shondaland. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Were you a fan of “The Face of Change?” What do you think will happen next? Will the plane crash victims buy the hospital? Will Richard retire?

Cris having a one to one with her ex is more important than the future of the hospital? Isn't that why Mer phoned Cris? Isn't it about all the hospital staff?


I'm don't care much about Alex and Jo, but they have a better chance of remaining a couple because they are friends, know each other, and (at least so far) are not moving too fast.

I really enjoyed his episode. I too knew Callie would be the one to suggest that the group buys the hospital. I did not like Jo at first but I really like her now and I would like her and Alex together.
Personally I was not expecting Derek to be the face of SGMW.
I loved them all helping to save the boy. Hello McSexy EMT!


LOVED this episode - saw a great & hilarious pairing of Callie & Richard - enjoyed seeing April w/her new paramedic boyfriend w/Jackson looking over his shoulder as he & Stephanie left the hospital! Enjoyed seeing all of the doc's/interns pulling for the same cause with the BEST one liner coming from Owen ... Cristina telling him "they did the right thing" & he said " I know, but you are all killing me." Both of them are right. And imo, the BEST scene of the episode was when Owen & Cristina were kissing & Meredith attempted to reach Cristina & her pager was tucked into her shoe with Cristina never reaching for it - she has learned it's not all about her. FUNNY last scene ... Richard walking into the elevator & as the doors closed, there was a mural of Derek - omg, did I laugh! Richard just looked at Derek's face & just stood there - didn't say a word & made no face at it either.


loved this episode! i like how kepner has a new love interest! and i dont like jo... i know this is kinda far-fetched, but i want izzie back. her and alex are really cute together!


I thought this one was a snoozer. Sneaking in that patient was so far-fetched and silly. And the previews for next weeks Valentines Day episode doesn't look very Valentiney!!

P.S. April and Matthew are so sweet and awesome!

This show perfectly connects the fun and the serious. So many LoL's and such a tense case like the transgender patient! The Inters made this episode clearly! Jo hitting into the ER door was Amazing. . . the writing was AWESOME like almost always. Carev and Avery combat of attentions! really sweet! Richard and Callie were a great team we need more of these 2 together! I loved Constance Zimmer in Entourage, here she is a snooby bit*h and she is great!


I liked the surprise at the end, where McDreamy's picture was in the elevator, instead of Alex's or Jackson's, who had been followed around and were in the running! Who would not like that? Okay, Addison maybe, or Rose.


I hope the plane crash victims don't buy the hospital. One, it's too predictable. Two, they deserve the money and some peace of mind. Owning and running a hospital won't give them that.
