Grey's Anatomy Review: Outnumbered

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Throughout the years, the doctors’ love lives have played an unforgettable role on Grey’s Anatomy.

And we can add Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 8 to the books as yet another installment that featured major relationship drama as matters of the heart took stage front and center.

Let’s break it down by couple, shall we?

BFF vs. BFF

Mapril fans were probably excited because Matthew finally made an appearance. I was beginning to wonder if we’d ever see him again. I guess it is true absence does makes the heart grow fonder because Matthew was suddenly not too keen anymore on the whole “no sex before marriage” thing.

Ultimately, the two decided to wait. Japril fans, are you still out there and holding out? I, for one, find April much more tolerable when she’s with Matthew. So, I actually want the wedding to happen.

While Mapril still appears to be on their way to the chapel, Calzona’s separation seems almost permanent already. It’s only a matter of time until Arizona’s relationship with Leah comes to light. How is Callie going to handle the news? I’m betting not well at all.

Bring on the drama, though.

Side note: I am really digging Arizona and April’s friendship. I’m glad that their drunken night in the supply closet wasn’t a one-time thing. Then again, I’m always down for girl talk and it’s not like we’ve seen much with Cristina and Meredith’s ongoing strife. More on that soon, though.

Elsewhere, with Ben back, Bailey wasn’t handling it so well. On Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 7, she was disappointed upon hearing that Ben had already made up his mind about quitting school to be with his family. Honestly, I get why she is frustrated, but she couldn’t she be a little happier her husband is back?

I am really worried about Bailey. Something tells me that her OCD-like behavior, blurred vision, and lost consciousness are just the beginning of a very exhausted and broken Bailey. What’s wrong with her?!?

Aside from all of the relationship drama, Meredith and Cristina’s strife was far from over. I thought it was a little weird that Alex was only now finding out that the besties were on the outs. Their fights have become even more intense and awkward.

Alex was right to call out Meredith for being kind of petty and trying to prove Cristina wrong in calling her a lousy doctor. Do you think that Meredith was wrong not to let Cristina use her fancy new toy? At first, I did think Meredith was being irrational; however, she was in the middle of her research. Then again, Cristina truthfully wanted to try to help a patient.

I’m torn in who was in the right or even the wrong here.

One thing’s for certain, though: I thought it was entirely predictable that Cristina and Shane would be caught red-handed using the 3D printer. It’s now clear more than ever that Cristina and Mer’s fight is far from over.

Other thoughts:
  • I loved Callie nearly interrogating Emma to find out more for Owen. I’m totally on board with Emma and Owen and thought she was smart to not take the job at Grey Sloan Memorial.
  • I liked the pairings for the medical cases this week. Derek advising Jackson to step back and let other doctors tend to his patients was just so McDreamy. Then, it was interesting seeing Alex and Mer work together because it feels like it’s been such a long time. Lastly, I actually found Sharky, aka Shane, and Cristina to be dynamic once again. They’re kind of ruthless, aren’t they?
  • Honestly, Webber’s stories were boring me a bit, too. I’m glad that he’s finally on his feet again. 
  • Don’t forget to return next week to chime in on our Grey’s Anatomy Round Table.

All in all, I thought this was an extremely busy installment.

There was way too much going on and it felt rushed at times. It definitely wasn’t my favorite. Moving along, I’m mostly looking forward to finding out what’s up with Bailey and the after effects of Cristina’s choice to betray Meredith.

I still tune in, I love Grey's but...there are several things that bother me. - In the past Shonda had promised that Calizona was gonna sail on for good. They were gonna be a golden couple but it feels like she decided to ruin that just for drama's sake. That makes me very unhappy...I'd always loved them together! Arizona's one night stand was believable given what the character had gone through. She wanted - for one night - to feel desirable. Hearing it from her own wife wasn't enough, there's always that feeling of "She's my wife, she HAS to say that". Plus, feeling sexy to someone who hadn't ever known her with two legs was probably something she needed. She knew that she wasn't being seen as her past self but as who she is now. However, Callie's reaction and the subsequent break....that's been disappointing. I really hope they find their way back together. Also, Arizona stooping to sleeping with an intern who has obviously never been with a woman before...that pisses me off. What happened to all that hesitance she had with Callie when they started? I thought she had a RULE about being only with women who KNEW what they wanted and weren't just experimenting? I didn't like Murphy to begin with...now I don't like her even more. Talk about taking an existing character and twisting them to fit a niche'. There were never any signs of her being bisexual in the past...it's just a repeat of Callie's sudden "I'm a lesbian now!" phase. Anyone else feel the story lines being recycled with new faces over the last few seasons? I do. -Mer and Christina:
Seriously!? These two are best friends. They are a pair...and it annoys me to no end that they're fighting. It's ridiculous and pointless. Christina has grown so much as a character and Mer had too...now it feels like Mer is halting. I've seen in the comments that Christina is leaving...is that true!? I really hope not. She is absolutely my favourite character on the show and has been since episode one. I may not watch when she's gone. Am I the only one who still wants Jackson and April together? Also...I miss Owen and Christina. I don't like this new girl...I want them back together.

I so wanted a final episode to sit down and revel in but it looks as if ABC and Shonda Rhimes (who blatantly cares way more about Scandal; she hasn't written an episode of Grey's Anatomy since 'Flight') will just milk this show for all it's worth until there's nothing left. I am grateful for the nine seasons of joy this show has given me and it will always be my favourite show but it may be time to say goodbye.

how can this show become like this
i sincerely feel disappointed in this season
everything go so wrong and weird even formal for example, Bailey's weird recently and Webber was mad at Mer
It's just like every tiny thing can pisses everyone off in Grey Sloan Memorial
It's really bad ,the show used to discuss somethong more big.not like a whinning housewife.I really hopr it will get better And the MUSIC in this season completely SUCK
I really dont know what happened
i checked and checked again and again!
this season music is completely different from previous! Can any one tell me what happen. I check music supervisor is still the awesome one "Alexandra Patsavas"
but i just dont know where went wrong God! Ive been holding it too long
just really dont want Sandrah to leave the show when its about to become shitty

Ok, enough with the Cristina and Mer drama!!! I can't believe they are going to ruin their friendship in Sandra Oh's last season :\ Also, I think Mer was totally wrong about not letting Cristina use the printer. Saving a life is more important than research which Meredith does not immediately need. She needs to stop being so petty and trying to prove a point with everything! Ugh! As far as Arizona and Leah, i have no words about how disgusting that is. Totally ruined the Arizona character for me. Instead of trying to fix things with callie she runs to the intern. Great. What is going on with Bailey? Definitely some sort of medical issue..but again, this storyline has already been done. The doctors have gotten all types of medical problems/freakish accidents on this show...please give us something new!!

I use to love this show, but, now I am just about to the point of moving on to something else. Meredith putting her young patient at risk just to prove a point! So glad that Alex's called her on it. The webber story line is just boring me silly. What's with Bailey? Didn't we already cover this SL already? The interns are just a big snooze fest. Really, Callie's interview with Emma was just cringe worthy. Where would you get away with giving a job interview like this? Arizona is like the female Mark Sloan, we know that people are not kind when they speak about a female sleeping around. Callie and Arizona's SL were the biggest coming into this season, and we have yet to seen anything from Arizona's POV. The 200th episode was so hyped up only to be another let down. Next week the only thing that I see that will make me watch, is that Callie's dad is coming to town, and I just love her dad! Let's hope that something exciting happens with this episode to move her and Arizona's story forward. A girl can hope right?

Gray's may have "jumped the shark." It's all too predictable. One horrific accident/incident after another. Bailey has become too mean and unpleasant, a terrible snob who is "disappointed" that her loving husband is back to doing anesthesia. We no longer see Bailey the good surgeon, but instead a petty monster who bitches at others in the OR. I think she has a brain tumor. Same with Meredith's ego and her duel with Christina. Enough already. I think I am done!

Grey's is getting worse. DID NOT like the Mer-Cristina rivalry. Mer was made out to be a brilliant surgeon from Day 1. Now she seems embarrassingly bad. But the worst has got to be how they played out Bailey's imbalance with Ben being around. I just really cannot stand a Bailey that's this "off" and tragic. Boo.

Hmm, am I the only one who thinks Bailey might be pregnant again?

Interesting theory! It sounds plausible.

Up until last season, I had a "seriously" unhealthy addiction to this show. Owning all the DVDs and seen all episodes repeatedly. I'm beginning to actually not like it anymore and I'm really upset about losing what was such an awesome, witty, drama filled, great show and cast. I do not like ANY of the new interns except Shane a LITTLE. They're dull and not good actors. Even the set on the show is dull. Now with Christina leaving and no good new people for the last 2 seasons, I'm about ready to stop watching.

I totally agree with you but for me it started already one season ago that I was not really eager to watch it anymore. Sad!
