The latest episode of “Grey’s” revolved around relationships and sex. Definitely a lot of laughs in this one, but some serious matters as well.
In Minneapolis, Christina had become “sex friends” with the doctor who runs the hospital (Rex from “Desperate Housewives”). She learned through him that Dr. Thomas (Mr. Feeney) was going to be forced out because he was too old and a liability. She had grown to like the old guy and tried to help him up his game to stay around. However he had always known what was going on with the hospital, they have been trying to oust him for years. My guess is the minute he goes, Christina won’t have any reason to stay there and will high tale it back to Seattle.
Back in Seattle, Meredith had a really cool brain tumor surgery, but she felt the need not to tell Derek as he is still not able to operate. He found out and at first was upset, until Hunt told him that he needs to be bubble wrapped sometimes. He said perhaps Meredith was afraid he would run off to that trailer and grow a beard again. In venting to Derek, he also got out his frustrations about Christina. He feels she’s not going to come back. Derek told Meredith that he knew about her surgery, and she didn’t have to keep her good days from him, that he was happy for her and could live through her. The end of the episode saw Hunt move into Derek’s old trailer. Wait, wasn’t that always on the land where Derek was building the dream house . . . where Derek and Meredith now live? So is he in there back yard? That’s kinda creepy.
Jackson and April are still doing it like crazy, and Jackson’s mother Katherine returned when the Chief called her in on a surgery. Some guy had swollen testicles, really swollen testicles! Jackson had to confront the fact that his mom and the Chief were doing it, and warned the Chief not to hurt his mom. The Chief has no intention of doing so, he likes Katherine. However he also knows it’s unorthodox, as he’s technically still married to Adelle. I actually like the Chief and Katherine, I didn’t think I would. However they really do have to resolve things with Adele at some point.
Finally progress was made by Arizona in this episode. Arizona came in for the first fitting of her prosthetic leg, but her attitude was still not there. Even her doctor got fed up with her and left her alone in the room with her leg to go tend to other things. Arizona had made Callie swear not to tell anyone she was there, but Alex found out. Alex accidentally came into the room while Arizona was alone. They talked. He told her that they needed her back, and not to be to hard on Callie because this is hard for her too. Alex’s pep talk seemed to work, and by the end of the episode Arizona was working on walking. She also reached out to Callie and invited her to watch a TV show on the couch with her. Callie has been sleeping in Mark’s old place these past few weeks. I’m glad to see Arizona overcome her issues. Watching her just be angry was getting to be old. Mark and Lexie are dead, she should be happy to be alive!
