Grey's Anatomy Review: One Step At A Time

at .

One of the best things about Grey’s Anatomy is that it shows us cases that are so intriguing and heartfelt that you can’t change the channel. This is exactly what happened on the latest installment, "This Magic Moment."

The docs worked on a case of conjoined twins, while other drama continued around the hospital. What else is new, right? Time to discuss...

Anybody Got a Scalpel?

Separation. The big case this week involved conjoined twin girls. Richard snaking Alex’s procedures? So not cool. Alex has always been the underdog, but it's about time for him to shine. This man needs some confidence - and a lady - now.

Arizona being a crazy monster led to the short scene of Calzona that we have had since the show returned. These two keep it light and funny and have been more enjoyable to watch in recent episodes than previous seasons. 

The best part about this surgery? It got all the fifth years back in the gallery to complain about everyone else. It was pretty much awesome and they definitely don’t do this enough anymore. Some of the better scenes are those of all the residents together... being residents.

One Step At A Time. Ben and Bailey are back! The two have gotten back together and are definitely a much better fit than she was with Eli. You have to give it to Ben, the guy is funny. Meredith as the buffer between these two was perfect. Bailey was right; she did used to have the husband/baby/career and she lost it. Now Meredith has it, so let’s hope after all the stuff she has been through this will last. Having Meredith and Bailey work together now that the clinical trial mess has passed was fun. These two always play well off of each other and I wish they had more scenes together.

Bailey and Ben are super cute, though, and deserver their own official moniker. So let’s heart it, Grey’s fans. B Squared? The B Sharps? Hit up the Comments section with your suggestions!

The Continuing Death. This was something I did not expect. It had been two weeks since Henry had died and Teddy was still having Cristina on repeat explaining the surgery. It made sense. The two most perfect, anal, focused heart surgeons are so alike. Teddy has never been high on my list of favorite characters, but her friendship with Cristina has really made me like her much more. 

Here is hoping these two can stand by each other, considering Teddy is now a widow and Cristina’s marriage is shaky at best.

Side Notes

  • How awkward was the small scene between Lexie and Sloan? I felt so terrible for her, especially after she spent all day updating the parents instead of operating on the twins.
  • Meredith and Derek are the cutest parents ever! The video camera and Zola walking? Adorable.
  • Ellen Pompeo is totally on her game this season. My girl crush is rising, quickly.
  • Good for April for having a voice. I was getting a little tired of hearing the Henry Surgery on repeat too.

Grey's Anatomy Season 8 Episode 11 Quotes

Our actions decide what kind of life they will lead.


Say you're in the OR. Repairing a vena cava. When suddenly everything goes to hell. So, you cut this, suture that, and soon that crappy situation is a thing of the past. Too bad you can't meet all of life's challenges with a surgical scalpel. I mean, you could try. But I'm pretty sure that would be considered assault.
