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

GA story always need more interns to help all attendings ,so I won't mind to keep all or change some!
I'd like to see Cristina's T-shirt which make Owen forget something!! it's time Cristina should ask Owen whether the childless is ok to him?
2 Syrian doctors are hondsome and the warezone story seems promising, will April and Azi go out for support in the end?


I don't agree with yu at all. Being a big fan of Japril, I don't see a future for Matthew and April. Plus, I don't loooooooove the new interns, but I like them, so I would be a bit disappointed if they left/got fired.


I had sudden moment when I saw April and Lexie popped up in my mind, I miss Lexie.


I don't think we've seen the last of Matthew yet. There has to be some love triangle action before he leaves.
As much as I would hate to see April get into anymore trouble (she's already been fired twice!) I have a feeling disciplinary action is inevitable... poor girl just wants to help.
Honestly, I'm bored with Meredith and Derek. Their storylines aren't interesting, though it is nice to have a strong, enduring couple on the show.
I feel terrible for Bailey, so I hope there's an explanation behind this that doesn't end up getting her fired.


I just loved what Fiona and ChimChim had to say about Grey's. Yup, I think it's jumped the shark big time. BUT, I like that they finally gave Avery the balls he seemed to not had at the beginning. I still am not hot about his character, (although this guy is HOT to lookk at), and I feel that I just watch Grey's now, waiting for Scandal to come on.


I enjoyed the show last night but hated the ending. I so love Bailey and don't want to see her in trouble. Mer asking Derek and Christina about different ways to kill her if she loses her memory was kind of funny. Loved Christina answers though. Owen so wants to be a father and I think it will drive him and Christina away soon. I like Ross and starting to like Jo but the others no I don't care for. I like the relationship that was building with Ross and Derek and hated how he pretty much had to hurt Ross feelings to get him to want to work with other doctors. He looked so sad. I like April and Jackson together so I wasn't and won't be upset if her and Matthew are over.




Can't stand Jo, Leah, or April. I actually enjoy Shane and Heather.
Great episode other than the ridiculous Kepner mess. I just had to shake my head when the visiting Syrian doctors actually had to be a part of her inane storyline.


The interns need to stay, it's a teaching hospital and therefore needs them. Just leave them in the background, we only need to know about them superficially. They are there to help showcase how awesome our favorites really are! That should be their only purpose!


@kiera14, April failed her boards, but she's not repeating her 5th year. She can still be an attending, she's just not board-certified. She has to work under the supervision of a board-certified trauma surgeon (in this case, Hunt).
