Grey's Anatomy Review: The Panty Police

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Can you imagine Grey's Anatomy without the romance? Well, I could never either.

Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 14 explored just that... well, almost anyway.

After the anonymous complaint on Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 13, Owen enacted a non-fraternization policy that essentially banned romance between our favorite docs.

Listen to Owen!
Don't make him say it twice, people! Owen tells the team about the new non-fraternizing policy in place.

While all relationships between superiors and subordinates were strictly prohibited and also all relationships with coworkers discouraged, the board had the right idea in mind. They wanted a safe work environment with focus solely on the patients and believed that could only be achieved without all of the relationship drama.

So, how did the couples take it?

Jolex, my favorite couple lately, totally pulled off an over-the-top fight scene right in the middle of the hospital. I had a hunch it was a bit rehearsed, but Jo's tears nearly had me fooled. I seriously love these two together and thought their fake fight was kind of brilliant.

In the end, they were exposed and the board (also known as "the panty police") expressed that they wanted Jolex to keep their relationship strictly professional at the hospital.

I could definitely understand why Alex stormed off and was utterly pissed. I'm crossing my fingers, though, that this only makes Jolex even stronger. 

As for Japril, they tried their best to keep their marriage a secret. However, they eventually had to spill the beans when they were caught getting busy in the supply contest. Technically, they weren't breaking any rules since they are married now. 

Meanwhile, I didn't really care for the Owen and Emma (plus Cristina) storyline. So, Owen talked about moving in with Emma in the beginning of the installment... only to end up breaking up with her by the end of the hour all because of a night with Cristina. Call me crazy, but I like Crowen better apart than together. To me, their story was finished. 

As for Calzona, I still think that a new house and now a new ring are doing no good for their severely troublesome marriage. Something tells me that this pair's marriage woes are far from over.

Lastly, I really liked that Richard was basically in charge of the residents as they all worked together on a cancer case. He's always been an amazing mentor. I was shocked when the residents' ideas and realizations didn't come together quickly enough so that an attempt could be made to try to save the young patient's life.

It was heartbreaking.  

Other Thoughts:

  • Major props to those who totally called it last week and knew that it was Leah who filed the anonymous complaint.
  • I said it before and I'll say it again: I really like that Ben is back and am glad that he's getting in with the other residents. He's a great addition!
  • How many of you loved that Meredith and Cristina are back and better than ever? Finally!
  • I've always loved MerDer and thought it was entirely realistic how frustrated Meredith was in regards to Derek's involvement with the POTUS. It should be interesting to see how his position on the advisory board affects their marriage and family life.

Overall, "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" was a solid installment and has me excited to see what's in store for the remainder of this season. 

Here's a look at Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 15:

Should Crowen get back together?

Cristina and Owen was a mistake from the begining so I dont know what Shonda was thinking. They only had physical thing thats it. Cristina was drinking that was it for him to call off everything with Emma was stupid. And we have to face facts that most people meet their mates at work because u spend more time there. So good luck with that policy. I was happy with Jackson and April.....but Jo and Alex no....she has some serious issues and needs some help...Alex has problems of his own but I can see her killing somebody....People need to stop thinking sex is the whole relationship because that alone will not sustain a relationship

Crowen, more toxicity.

I always felt that Cristina and Owen had rushed into marriage the same way that George and Callie had. I became a serious non-fan of Owen after he told her that "no one doesn't want kids" and that she would change her mind and regret her decision. Now that he has someone who's offering him everything he wanted in a wife, he realizes that HE'S changed HIS mind? Since Yang is destined to leave and Burke is on his way back, it's probably too late.

The buzz is that Isaiah Washington will be making an appearance this season. Dr. Preston Burke will likely be coming to usher Dr. Cristina Yang away from Seattle. Funny, Shonda had always said that she would never have Washington back on the show.

My Spidey senses are telling me that the Callie/Arizona bliss is going to be short lived.This relationship is about to crumble and I'm going to be p****d. I do like Japril. They make a cute couple. I've tried and tried to like the new interns but I'm not feeling them. I liked Shane initially but now not so much. The only one I really liked was Heather and we all know what happened to her.

This was a great episode! I loved the songs playing in the background and every actor was great!
I am glad that they did not drag out revealing who the person was that complained! All those that said Leah were right.
I knew Alex and Jo's fight was pretend, however it was revealed that they are still together.
I find it interesting that the rule only applies during work hours. I do not recall Leah and Arizona hooking up at work. Leah was upset because she got dumped. Anyways it will be interesting to see what happens with Jo and Alex.
I may be in the minority but I love that Owen and Christina may be back together, I do not condone cheating but the scene with them was great. Yes Emma said she wanted kids but she wants to be a stay at home mom and Owen wants them both to have a career and kids like Meredith and Derek and I do not fault him for that.
I love that Christina and Meredith are close again.
So if Crowen get back together will Christina still be part of the show but move to a different hospital and then she is just talked about and never scene as Sandra is leaving?
I never thought the day would come where I would say that I can stand April, but these last 2 episodes I can.
Meredith and Derek are really solid now and I like that they can fight but still have sex.
The interns would have found the solution faster if there was not friction between them, once they got their anger out (minus Ben) they were able to finally be a team again.

Lazy writing is the perfect way to describe the Cristina/Owen. He and Emma were adorable together and she was perfect for him. The Owen I saw for the whole first half of the season would have made Cristina some coffee and driven her home, but this is Shondaland where (unless an actor pisses her off), characters are unable to get over each other. Ever. What makes the entire story even more of a fail is that we know Owen and Cristina aren't even back together because Sandra's leaving. No one wins.

The Owen/Cristina twist was absolutely TERRIBLE writing. There was no foreshadowing of Owen's sudden and radical change of heart. It makes no sense whatsoever that he and Cristina would divorce over her not wanting kids, only for him to fall for someone else who does, date for months, ask her to move in together, and literally change his mind overnight. Really, really bad writing. Owen/Cristina is done. Come on. And she's leaving the show. Shonda got lazy with this one.
