This week was the real winter finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” and it centered around Derek’s surgery and Bailey’s marriage to Ben.
Meredith and Derek’s sister Lizzie were a bit at odds with one another. Lizzie felt like Meredith had been keeping her and the others at a distance. They hardly hear from her, nobody was invited to the wedding and they found out about Zola through an email. Meredith told her that the Greys aren’t like the Shepards . . . Meredith kept trying to redirect everything towards the surgery that she and Derek were preparing for and avoided anything personal. Lizzie just felt even more slighted. I have to say I do love Neve Campbell and would to love to see her added full time. I think it would do Meredith good to have a sister again, even though she has another sister off somewhere that we haven’t seen in a few seasons.
Meanwhile Bailey was all nerves about her upcoming marriage to Ben. She kept asking all the gilrs “When you get to the wedding, don’t sit down.” They were puzzled, but Callie figured out that she was asking them to be her brides maids. Callie thought it was so cute, but Bailey was not amused by her gushyness. I kept giggling every time Bailey asked someone not to sit down at her wedding, it was so cute. However Bailey wasn’t sure if she should go through with the marriage, was she doing the right thing? She and Ben were living apart, he was an intern again as he was taking up a new specialty. Callie’s frustrations with Arizona all fell out of her mouth and once and she told Bailey to just run, leave him at the altar, make that break that would break it off for ever before she was stuck in a sexless rut cleaning pee off the floor! Oops . . . Tell us how you really feel Callie?
Owen moved forward with the divorce at light speed, which had Christina wondering what was up with him. Meanwhile Derek told Meredith the truth about the lawsuit and the divorce, which she thought Christina knew, and she then brought it up to Christina. Meredith felt Christina wasn’t telling her because she wouldn’t understand, but she does. Only Christina didn’t know and was even more hurt. By the end of the show, she confronted Owen about why he wanted the divorce, was it to give them a better chance with the lawsuit, or because he wanted out? He said she was done months ago, she moved away, why prologue it? However Christina revealed that she was going to tell him that night that she wanted to give their marriage another chance. This lead to massive kissing and probable sex . . . I was so happy! However this definitely puts a crimp in the lawsuit doesn’t it?
Meanwhile Meredith and Derek had their appointment with the OB, and while Derek was staying positive, Meredith had a hard time doing so. I was so sad when Meredith couldn’t even bare to look at the ultrasound monitor as it was being conducted. It seems so far everything is okay. After the surgery was over and Derek was in recovery, Meredith went to see Lizzie. She opened up to her, swearing her to secrecy, and showed her the photo from the ultrasound. Lizzie was of course thrilled that they were having a new addition to the family.
Before the wedding Callie finally melted down on Arizona. Arizona wanted to skip the wedding because she couldn’t wear heels and everyone would be looking at her. Callie said it was Bailey’s day, they would be looking at her, and then she just went off about how sick she is of everything in their lives revolving around her leg. Arizona was stunned, but it seems Callie’s melt down got through to her. She had been focusing on what she lost and not that she was alive and what she had.
Meanwhile it was time for the wedding, and the Chief tried to calm Bailey’s nerves by renting a limo to escort her to the wedding in. Unfortunately on the way there they got news that Adele had been rushed to the hospital and was puking up blood, a lot of blood. Bailey had to take over the case because the Chief couldn’t. Back at the wedding everyone wondered where Miranda was? Callie told Arizona and Meredith about her little meltdown and how Bailey was nervous about the wedding and she told her to run . . . Unfortunately Ben overheard, and now he thinks Bailey has jilted him!
Poor Ben . . . Poor Adele! Are they going to kill off Adele? She definitely seemed a little more alert in this episode, but then again she was throwing up blood and probably was only focused on that.
