Grey's Anatomy: Episode 5.6 "Life During Wartime" Recap (Page 1/4)
The powers that be behind Grey's Anatomy would like us to know that no animals were harmed in the production of this episode. Uh oh, that can't be good.

Tonight's episode of Grey's Anatomy begins with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) cleaning out Ellis' old boxes containing memorabilia from Meredith's childhood. Meredith finds her old Anatomy Jane doll.

Alex (Justin Chambers) and Izzie (Katherine Heigl) are sleeping together now and have been for a week. Of course, Alex has to go and ruin whatever goodwill exists between them by rudely asking if he is allowed to screw other people. He doesn't want to have to change his plans on banging the hot peds chick.

After some false starts, Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Hahn (Brooke Smith) are finally having great sex with either other. After one particularly rousing bout, Hahn gets weepy and declares, "I am so, so gay. I am extremely gay." Callie kind of freaks out and leaves abruptly.

Richard had appointed Major McHottie (Kevin McKidd) to be the new head of trauma at Seattle Grace, allowing them to regain their status of a level 1 trauma center. Cristina (Sandra Oh) majorly freaks out when she sees him. She doesn't want to get involved with another attending.

Richard (James Pickens Jr.) wants to groom Bailey (Chandra Wilson) into being the next best surgeon at Seattle Grace. He brings her up to the helipad which is conveniently located right next to the Space Needle. A 10-year-old girl who has an inoperable tumor is being flown in and Richard wants her to take charge of the surgery. Bailey chooses Meredith to assist her because she is as much a fan of the Anatomy Jane doll with the 24 removable organs and the extra pieces to simulate pregnancy as Meredith is. All the other residents and interns must go to a skills lab with Major McHottie, who has rounded up a whole bunch of pigs in the clinic. The pigs are alive and strapped down to gurneys. Major McHottie stabs each pig, and then instructs the residents and interns to save their lives. Izzie is appalled that he would do such a brutal thing, and leaves in a huff.
