Recap

Plenty going on this week at Seattle Grace. Let's break it down by story line:

Derek and the Chief

The board has appointed Derek interim Chief. They've presented Webber with a choice: either quit and walk away, surrendering your medical license, or go to rehab and come back to your job.

Richard is so angry at Derek, that's making this emotional choice even harder.

Derek's understandably nervous about the new gig and his initial speech to the staff is terrible. His screaming match with Richard that everyone ends up hearing is even worse.

Meanwhile, Dr. Bailey's patient wakes up on the table during surgery, and is confronted with Bailey yelling at the anesthesiologist and Meredith trying to soothe her back to sleep.

Consequently, the utterly traumatized patient doesn't want Bailey anywhere near her when she wakes up, and when she requires another surgery she insists that Meredith do it.

Bailey unloads on anesthesiologist, who came from Mercy West and who she doesn't hesitate to accuse of negligence. However, it turns out that the patient has a condition that allows her to metabolize the anesthetic faster than normal.

There's no way he could have known, in other words. Forced to apologize, or close to it, Bailey and the new guy bond. That should be interesting.

After successfully mentoring Meredith through the surgery, she counsels Derek to do apologize to the patient, and to the staff. It's what Richard would do.

Which he does, insisting that he wants to honor the legacy of Richard and start freshm which means hiring back some of the laid-off staff.

The Chief goes to rehab.

Arizona and Alex

Arizona's working with Alex on teenage boy with intermittent stomach pain. His unsympathetic dad thinks he's just faking it, and they end up doing exploratory surgery to try to figure out what's wrong.

Alex stands up for the boy and for the doctors. While the kid is in intensive care, his father lays into Alex about how much this is costing him when he starts bleeding hugely from his chest tube.

Teddy gets called into surgery and ultimately they save the day. Alex berates the father until Arizona pulls him away and counsels him to knock it off.

But all in all, Alex earned Arizona's respect with passion and commitment to the peds rotation, and it looks like that partnership will continue.

Cristina and Owen

Intense week on the Owenstina front. A hot one! They're intimate all over the place to the point where Cristina ends up with burns from a session in the boiler room.

Teddy decides to use Avery on her service rather than Cristina, except for when she really needs her in the kid's surgery. Then she pages Yang. Uh oh. Crunch time.

Owen's urges her not to leave him, and Cristina uncharacteristically ignores her page. Later, Teddy berates her for ignoring her page. Owen tries to help, but it's no use.

She accuses him of trying to subdue and control her with sex, and he despairs that she doesn't give any of herself to him, so he can't know her.

He didn't know, for example, about her engagement to Burke until it came out in a conversation with Derek and Mark.

She insists that Burke isn't relevant to their relationship, and finally breaks down and explains that that relationship took pieces of her away, slowly but surely.

She's terrified it'll happen again, just as she's getting herself back, and confesses that when he made her not answer the page, he took a piece of her away.

Lexie and Mark

He's still upset she slept with Alex after breaking up with him ... even though he was with Addison.

She tries to talk to him, he ignores her. In frustration she turned to Callie and explained her side.

Callie talked to Mark and he warned her not to take Lexie's side, and so it goes. It is complicated.

Lexie got incredibly upset when she ended up having to be on an elevator with Mark.

Mark's venting over the situation brought no sympathy from Derek, for obvious reasons. The best part was the shot of Mark in bed with Callie and Arizona, a la George lying with Meredith and Izzie.

I wish Katherine (Izzy) would make up her mind if she wants to remain on the show full-time so we can all get on with the Izzy/Alex scenario. Alex is an ass, as usual, and for him to say he was a "good guy" to her at the end of last weeks episode is insane...As for the intern that is after Alex, come on. ABC could have found a better actress to fill that role if it was to happen, why her? Since this whole merger took place, some of the actors chosen are not very good. Splurge and hire some real talent so we can enjoy the future to come. Love the Lexi/Mark theme, however Mark's daughter is a spitting image of what all kids are today, spoiled-rotten and expecting everything for nothing! Arizona and Cal, what an awesome couple... Wish Teddy would give it up and leave Christina and Owen alone. Don't like her much at all.....as for Derek, he has been after the chief since the new season started. He's more arrogant and selfish this season and acts like he is above everyone with a God complex. They shaped his character in the wrong direction. Let's hope Shonda makes some changes for the better and we can start getting back on track because the way things are going, this show may fall apart after all.

we just lost a lovely young man to cancer of the brain and we hoped that your writers would tell the real story and not let Izzie survive because in the real world she wouldn't have.

I'm really enjoying this sixth season, but is still not as exciting when the season 5 .... I hope izzie and professionally to overcome that much happens in your love life, so she can show the great talent you have, because this season she is far removed from his character, ... a huge fan of this series ...

I don't understand why the next episode is airing on Feb. They already took a two month long break! Why are they torturing us? :( Btw, I just read the episode summary and I don't understand why Teddy suddenly doesn't want Cristina on her service? Poor Cristina! She always has a problem with the Cardio attendings :(

I always love the way Owen takes Christina and kiss her, it's so hot!
I really love them together, I don't want them to separate because of Teddy >.< I hope she goes away soon. I don't want Lexie and Mark to be together, I've never liked Lexie (I don't hate her now, but I remember how much I did when she first appeared) and I think she handled in a wrong way all the things that happened with Mark.

I would love to see Mark and Lexie get back together, I thought of Lexie being pregnant, that she knows Mark's the father and not Alex just by the number of weeks she's pregnant, have an OB/GYN confirm that she is like 8 weeks pregnant and she only slept with Alex like 2 weeks ago so he couldn't possibly be the baby's father. I would like to see her trying to tell Mark she's pregnant, but he won't believe her.A story like that could drag on for awhile, does Lexie opt for an abortion or does she decide to be a single mum? I noticed that Miranda Bailey isn't in any of the photos, where is Bailey?

Wow that episode was great, I love the 'damn it you just make me so...' and 'mcdreamy is being a mcass' I hope Izzy gets kicked out soon though.

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 13 Quotes

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.

Cristina

[lying with Callie and Arizona] This isn't gonna work for me ...
