Grey's Anatomy Review: In All Honesty

by 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.

I am so frustrated....I couldn't be home during the airing of tonight's episode and was counting on my DVR to get it, but it chopped off the ending! It stopped just as an outraged Bailey had been interrupted by someone (was it Meredith?) who just began to explain that Murphy wasn't involved at all with the third patient who got a post-op infection. And if there was a preview of the next episode, I missed that too. I wouldn't be surprised if, after a lot of tense drawn-out waiting, we'll ultimately learn that someone (NOT Bailey) actually infected those patients ON PURPOSE, either to sabotage Bailey, Murphy, Owen, or the hospital itself.

That was a great episode,I thought it was so increadibly interesting he storyline with the Syrian doctors, operating with such difficult situations led to some pretty great innovative was to operate. Also in my opinion heather is my favorite so I don't agree with you. Finally I was wondering though out the whole episode how all of those patients could have been infected, I'm really looking forward to the explanation.

Let's hope that Mathew will stay longer on season 9 and stay longer on season 10. would Owen open up to christina of having kids themselves? Where was Callie and Arizona? Not much of Dr. Webber.
