Grey's Anatomy Review: In All Honesty

at . Comments

Grey’s Anatomy, you did it again. "She's Killing Me" left me shocked and wanting more in the final minutes of yet another tumultuous and eventful hour that focused on honesty.

The installment picked up right where we left off when Meredith asked Bailey to perform the genome mapping on her. Mer’s fear of Alzheimer's has been an interesting storyline that has shown both her and her better half being the dream team that we so easily adore.

Callie, Jackson, Mer and Cristina

Regardless of their circumstances, it becomes clearer with every passing moment that MerDer can and will be able to get through anything as long as they have each other. Although it utterly sucks that Meredith tested positive for more than one of the genetic markers for Alzheimer’s, I couldn’t blame her for spending most of the episode trying to plan out her future for herself and her children. 

She doesn’t want to put her kids through what she went with her mother. Ultimately, she wants her children to have a parent. Was I bit disappointed that Cristina just wants to be the coolest aunt but not a mom? Yes, maybe somewhat, but I also know that it wouldn’t be true to Cristina’s character if she had said otherwise.

Like Derek said, though, they’ll cross the bridge when they come to it. I loved that we saw Derek do and say just about everything to set Meredith’s mind at ease – he even had his genome tested. In fact, with all their maybes, there’s even a chance he could be a bald heroin addict. Let’s hope that never happens, though.

Meanwhile, while Cristina was making sure that Mer understood where she was coming from, she probably could have also reminded Owen. I liked that Ethan was back because we again got to see Owen playing dad. He’s remarkably good at it, and it’s only a matter of time until Owenstina reach the topic of children once again.

What will happen to Owenstina once they both admit that they just want different things? Will it break them this time?

One thing I’m really enjoying about Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 is how it seems like our favorite doctors are getting to just be the caring and innovative doctors we’ve known them as once again. Without anesthesia, light and many other difficult complications, two Syrian doctors came to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to learn life saving procedures.

It was definitely interesting to get a better understanding of what it’s like for doctors who are in war zones out in the field. Without electricity and with fewer instruments to work with, the Syrian doctors were all ears as to learning what all the Attendings had to offer.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was when we found out that Bailey was likely responsible for the outbreak of post-op infections in her patients. With three patients admitted and one already dead, there’s no telling how many more patients will be infected. I’m betting the worst is yet to come. Poor Bailey!

Other Thoughts

  • I know McDreamy and Ross would agree, but does anyone else find Heather terribly annoying? Aside from Ross and Jo, I am not interested at all in the other interns. By the way, where was Jo?
  • Raise your hand if you wanted Leah to get fired. I can’t be the only one.
  • April stole. Were her intentions good? Yes, but she still stole regardless. I hope that she actually faces some repercussions. Also, if I remember correctly, she failed her boards and shouldn’t she be focusing some of her kleptomaniac attention toward studying?
  • Are April and Matthew really over? If so, does it mean that Japril fans should get excited? I, for one, actually liked Matthew and was hoping he’d stick around a bit longer.

Well, TV Fanatics, what did you think of the latest Grey’s Anatomy? Be sure to chime in early next week for our Grey’s Anatomy Round Table

I loved this episode! Although, I'm not really digging the whole focus away from medicine into the legal realm (I know it's a huge part of this season's storyline but still). And to all those harping on about how April stole and how she had no right and all, have you been sleeping through the 9 seasons? I mean one of the recurrent themes about this show is how the characters do what seems right to them and not the 'right' that comes straight out of the textbook, just look at some of the things in the past: cutting LVAD wire to steal a heart, Christina's abortion, Meredith cheating off on the Alzheimer's trial in favor of Adele. I for one do not judge in this matter, if she gets punished for it then okay, she got caught, rotten luck. If she gets away with it, I'm going to be good with that as well because I would probably do something that would seem right to me as well. I do not believe in the strictly textbook definitions of right or wrong. There are grey areas between them as well. Rant over.


I love Grey's Anatomy and hope to watch a new season. I am a fan but letting Mark Sloan and Lexie die last season has affected my interest in the show. I will continue to watch the show but I can tell its coming to an end. I am hopeful for a new season, since it's the only show I enjoy watching on Thursday night. Listen to the viewers, renew Grey's Anatomy.


And April is unable to separate personal from professional and she is too unstable. She doesn't deserve Jackson (SERIOUSLY); neither does that Stephanie intern who is also as annoying as her. Sarah Drew is a great actress and I think she deserve more than playing this poor messed up chick who grew up on a farm and blood doesn't bother her. i wish we can have another heartless person like Christina!Please Shonda, make her stop with the whining!!!


Can April get hit by a bus, get cancer or get shot, or maybe die in a plane crash in the finale??? I just can't stand her! Her character is more annoying than Izzie,Dr. Hahn & Reed combined!!!! She gets emotional all the time. She got fired for being distracted which lead to a patient's death; Derek got shot becoz of her; she failed her board exam; now she is stealing from the hospital...WTH??? And she is so irritating with her "virgin"&"Jesus" stories. She is always cryin and stressin out and it's so frustrating coz u wonder how she managed to make it through Med schoolwith all those issues. Med School is tough; A lot of people don't make it through the 1st year (including me)!


lease I hope shonda realizes that nobody really cares for these annoying interns the fab five before when they were interns were funny and really have chemistry.I hope the story just revolves amongst the original cast or main cast.enough with the intern story lines and april still not seeing her character depth.


I really liked the Syrian doctors story ! Seeing the other docs training them, how refreshing ! it reminded me of when Owen trained the crew with pigs seasons ago.
I think Derek was right to talk to Ross like he did, the guy wouldn't give up ! I like Brooks, and all the interns have to check all the services and choose. This early in their internship, they can't focus on only one path, so yeah, wake-up call ! Didn't even feel bad for him !


Holy Cow !!! Bailey...what the hell is going on !!! I think it's her genome lab...that's what's causing the infection... Anyway, I see a lawsuit had to happen right after the hospital got back on its feet ! For Bailey, I think it's a good slap ! I love her, but she thinks she's high and mighty, so that might tone it down.
Mer/Der, loved every moments ! The Alzheirmer's gene...that wasn't really a BIG surprise, but it sure shook Mer to the core... Liked how she asked Cris to kill her lol
April, what have you done ! Giving medical supplies, expensive ones at that, without permission ! Hell, SHE might get fired...but she didn't kill somebody. Matthew and her, I don't know, it's probably over over. I liked the guy though.
Crowen, favorite couple, but Shonda is gonna break them up, for good this time ! Owen's instincts with kids is to big and this boy has woken it up, I hate this ! I won't stand Cris and him having an argument over this again ! No !
I really liked the Syrian doctors story ! Seeing the other docs training them, how refreshing !


Have Owen's one night stand come back pregnant. Owen get's the kid; Christina doesn't have to be a mother.


Yes maybe someone infected those patients on purpose - the board seems to know something more than Bailey. What was the intern actually holding up on her screen? Who would do such a thing on purpose? Maybe Jackson's mom to sue the hospital and get more $$ out of this?

I knew it would be Bailey's error all along. I do like Bailey however I am a little annoyed at how she always is the first to snap at others and get on their case when she thinks they are in the wrong, or when the whole law suit happened and how she was harping on Derek, Mer, Christina etc. Then when she was on Jackson's case when he was named the head of the board.
Then when they reveal it was her not the intern that cause the infections she was angry and was not willing to listen to them when they told her to sit down! I sometimes think Bailey's thinks she is God.
I loved every Mer and Der moment! Especially near the end when he showed Mer his results.
Sadly I have a feeling Christina and Owen will break up for good.
I was not shocked that Matthew was mad at April. However she had no right to give away thousands of dollars in equipment! I hope she gets reprimanded!
