Grey's Anatomy Review: "Superfreak"

at .

If there ever were an episode of Grey’s Anatomy that would make you realize that importance of practicing safe sex, “Superfreak” would be it, introducing viewers to a very rare condition that happens to some unfortunate people who catch HPV.

This disease is known as Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) and pretty much causes your limbs to turn into tree like branches and tumors all over your body.  

Grey's Leading Lady

I really sympathized with Lexie’s initial reaction to when she first saw the patient. What’s even more scary is the fact that HPV happens to be one of the most commonly sexually transmitted diseases these days and EV can happen to anyone from any race. Yikes!

Okay, back to my review.

I couldn’t agree with Meredith more when she told April that she’s growing on her at the end of the episode. There’s something endearing about the fact that she’s a 28-year-old virgin, especially in our Jersey Shore day and age.

I really can’t wait to see April not only lose her virginity, but find a man! Maybe she and Alex can hit it off? How would you feel about that?!

Poor Cristina. After a traumatic episode last week, she’s still not really ready to be back inside the OR. Since Andrew is leaving, I think that only way she’s going to get over her fear is to have another traumatic experience happen to her to jolt her back into the reason she fell in love with it in the first place.

I did have warm, fuzzy feelings when Derek told Cristina that she’s family and her talent is too amazing to throw away. Since she was the one person who saved his life, maybe he will be the one person to save her life as a surgeon.

For those of you that don’t follow her character on Private Practice, we were finally introduced to one of Derek’s sisters, Amelia, and by the looks of her steamy scene with Mark at the end, we definitely are in for some major drama!


Sometimes, I wonder why Lexie can be so dense. Even April could see that Mark is totally in love with her and when she finally goes to see him, what else would she expect from the once playboy of his time? I still have hope for these two, do you?

Callie and Arizona were pretty funny trying to figure out a way to get Cristina out of their love nest and as it turned out, the only thing they needed to do is show her that three really can be a crowd. This scene is very reminiscent of the time when Cristina was trying to get George out of her place with Burke.

From the looks of it, Meredith is definitely ready to get back into surgery. She got the pass from the doc, so what’s the deal? Why wasn’t Meredith and her talents used this week?

Another one of our favorite doctors, Karev, showed that, he too, is still dealing with PTSD. Finally, with the chief’s help, he was able to ride the elevator again. Think he's over it?

Probably the most hilarious part from last night’s episode was watching Bailey freak out when a spider crawled out of the man’s hands during surgery. Everyone has a fear of something and Miranda's happens to be spiders. Who knew?

Overall, I enjoyed last night’s episode, but I did feel a bit unsatisfied. Maybe it had something to do with the whole Lexie and Mark situation. Ugh! Can’t these two just get back together already?!

Until next week, here are a few of my favorite Grey’s Anatomy quotes from last night:

April: I'm a virgin. That doesn't make it drinks conversation. We all have stuff we don't talk about.
Meredith: Oh April. I'm liking you more and more.
April: Thank you. | permalink
Meredith: Nobody chooses to be a freak. Most people don't realize they're a freak until it's way to late to change it. No matter how much of a freak you end up being, chances are there's still someone out there for you. Unless of course, they've already moved on. Because when it comes to love, even freaks can't wait forever. | permalink
Bailey: Give me back my bottle.
Callie: Teddy needs it she's pathetic. | permalink
Derek: You're flaming out. And as someone who cares about you, it's not okay. I've seen a lot of residents come and go and very very few with your potential. It's not okay.
Cristina: I can barely remember it. You're whole procedure. I took a bullet out of your chest and all I can remember is bits and pieces. Bits and pieces that come back at very inconvenient times, so end of story. | permalink
Lexie: What?
Mark: Nothing. | permalink
Cristina: Would you love me if I wasn't a surgeon?
Owen: I would love you if you were a plumber, but would you love you if you weren't a surgeon?
Cristina: I don't know, maybe? | permalink
Callie: Look away. Stop staring at her.
Mark: I can't. | permalink
Meredith: April, don't talk about Cristina. Just mind your own business.
April: I'm sorry. I was just concerned. I'll try not to be. | permalink
Teddy: I'm not GI Jane, I'm attachment Barbie. | permalink
Meredith: I think they're talking about you. It's going to be okay. They can't kick you out of the program for being traumatized.
Cristina: I don't care what they do.
Derek: Dr. Yang you're with me.
Meredith: What, no, I'm with you?
Derek: You have someone else. We're walking Dr. Yang. | permalink
Derek: (regarding Cristina) She goes I go. | permalink

Grey's Anatomy Season 7 Episode 3 Quotes

(regarding Cristina) She goes I go.


Most surgeons grew up as freaks. While other kids played outside, we hold up in our rooms memorizing our periodic table, hovering for hours over our junior microscopes, dissecting our first frogs.
