Recap

Harper Avery

The man for whom the prestigious Harper Avery Award is named is rushed into the emergency room after getting sick at dinner.

Admitting him? Jackson. His grandson. Cristina tries to show off but ends up misdiagnosing the problem, which he busts her on.

Soon both the fact that Harper Avery's in the hospital and the fact that Cristina humiliated herself in front of him is all over SGH.

This drives her to extreme lengths to redeem herself. Harper, for his part, wants Ellis Grey to perform his surgery, but she's not there.

Hasks for Richard to do it. And for him to be awake while it's going on. Derek relents, even allowing Jackson to scrub in.

Avery is a badass, particularly when something goes wrong and he's on the table.

In grappling with his family legacy and his grandfather's expectations for him, Jackson finds an ally in Meredith.

Richard, meanwhile, is grappling with his own issues, taking drug tests and wanting to keep to a low-stress first day back. So much for that.

But when complications arise, he's convinced that he made an error, and encourages Derek to let Bailey take over. It turns out that the problem was an allergic reaction to the sutures, and there's no way anyone could've known.

Post-surgery, Meredith (it's genuinely amazing - and refreshing - how grounded they've made her character) convinced Jackson that he needs to make amends with his grandfather, which includes introducing them to his friends, which he loves. Really nice moment.

Lexie, Alex and Mark

Derek walks in on Lexie, waiting naked for Alex in his room, and is promptly followed by Meredith, who warns her that emotionally Alex is her three years ago.

Cristina pipes in with exactly the same lines later on.

Alex is being the version of himself that's retreated into a shell but keeps finding himself thrown out of ORs and kept off cases because he's slept with people.

Lexie spends her time trying to convince herself and everyone else that she doesn't really have feelings for Alex and that it's all just physical. Mmm hmm.

Mark buries his feelings by returning to his man-whore ways - sleeping with a drug rep, at least one nurse (and a patient's daughter in the same day.

He performs a surgery and restores the patient's hearing as well, so it's not like it's hampering his work.

Mark is on the verge of getting it together and going back to Lexiewhen he essentially sees her and Alex coming out of the on-call room and promptly stalks off.

Teddy, Owen and Cristina

Arizona catches Teddy gazing at Owen longingly. She decides that what Teddy really needs is a friend.

She also needs help with a case - a young man who survived both leukemia and lymphoma, but whose lungs were damaged by his radiation treatments.

He needs a lung transplant, but is an exceptionally high-risk candidate. There's talk of trying to essentially rehab lungs that would be deemed unusable.

Teddy's initially reluctant, but Cristina uses Teddy's name to rescue them from disposal in a desperate attempt to redeem herself after her humiliation.

Teddy goes ballistic and lectures Cristina about the dangers of ambition and angling for awards, and how it leads to bad judgment and priorities.

But ultimately, the patient decides he wants the (now-viable) lungs. When things go haywire, Cristina helps encourage Teddy through it, and the patient is saved!

Owen, after being encouraged by Cristina to be friends with Teddy, suggests that they get a beer and celebrate the success.

Teddy sticks to the commitment she made to Arizona earlier about going out for a girls' night with her and Callie and Bailey.

Meredith and Cristina join them all on the softball diamond.

Loose I don't think Alex will disregard anyone. The last time Izzy showed up he told her he wanted her to go and not come back. He had moved on without her. He told her he deserved to not feel like he was feeling. And that he deserved someone that would stay. He also told her he loved her so much that he almost hated her. I don't think she is going to come back expecting him to be there for her. If she does she is nuts. It isn't going to happen. She also hurt Mer's feelings and that about made me cry. Mer told her not to go. This is her home and she told Mer that it wasn't her home it was just a place she worked and she could work any where. Poor Mer looked heart broke started to cry and stormed out of the room.

I wonder if Alex is gonna totally disregard Lexie the minute Izzie comes back. Isn't that kind of how it went the last time these 2 got together? I'm curious to know how that is all going to pan out.

Ren where did that come from? I don't see that happening. But I do see her cheating with Mark. She is getting ready to screw up the best relationship she has ever been in and that is with Dr Arizona Robbins. Mark needs to get a life and stay the hell out of theres. I'm also worried that something is going to happen between AZ and Teddy. I hope if anything it is just harmless flirting. Jcap did and interview and she said there are going to be bumps in the road for there relationship. That they almost break up and then get back together. I hope nothing happens that makes either of them not trust the other. Relationships are built on love honesty and loyality. Without any of the three a relationship can't last.

Ahmedoh~ Unless Gray's mom comes back from the dead (which I'll admit stranger things have happened in TV-Land), I don't see her appearing with Dr. Webber in Season 7 unless it is in another one of those crazy flash backs. If you want to learn more about their 'love story', you'll have to buy/rent the first few seasons. ~Joy~

I'm expecting something new in Season 7. My senses are telling me that Dr. Webbie and Grey's mom will show up in the season 7. I'm curios to know about their love story. The previous episode was quite emotional for me and I loved the flash back scenes. I found it more exciting than Dr. Shepherd and Grey's love story. Hope I see something new in next season :)

Do you think that Mark will have sex with Callie and get her pregnant?
