Grey's Anatomy: Episode 5.9 "In the Midnight Hour" Recap (Page 1/4)
Grey's Anatomy starts with the Seattle skyline at night. I guess it's all about nighttime and monsters tonight. We see flashes of scenes which I am presuming will end the episode.

But anyway, let's start from the beginning. It's the same night as it was in last week's episode of Grey's Anatomy. Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) just kissed, which is making her freak out and think she's going crazy. Well, um, yeah, she kind of is. Denny suggests that they test her sanity by going all the way to home base, which they never got to do while he was alive. He takes his shirt off, as I swoon.

Cristina (Sandra Oh) goes to the hospital in the middle of the night because she heard that there might be a possible appendectomy. The first solo surgery is often an appy, so she's just trying to get a leg up on the competition. It's pouring out, in a very un-Seattle way. Seattle rains are usually very well-mannered. It's more mist than rain, you know. But anyway, Cristina runs into Major McHottie (Kevin McKidd) outside the hospital who awkwardly tries to make small talk or, you know, at least acknowledge their major kiss from last week's Grey's Anatomy, but he can't. Cristina doesn't have time for his waffling and breezes right past him.

At home, Death and Die have an impromptu bonding session in the middle of the night because neither of them can sleep. Sadie hints that she is starting to like Lexie and might make her her new intern BFF. Of course, Meredith is jealous and doesn't like the idea. Cristina pages Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex (Justin Chambers) about the possible appy, so everyone heads for the door. But, walking past Izzie's room, they hear her making sex sounds, and everyone's confused because Alex isn't in there with her. (Although Alex is pretty amused to see that she's flying solo.) When he tries to interrupt her fun, she doesn't let him in, feigning illness.

At the hospital, Sadie warns the interns, who are in the middle of another underground practice session, that all the residents are in the hospital. Tonight's meeting of the Life and Death Brigade involves giving an epidural to the little mop-headed intern. Unfortunately, they forget to put in a catheter, so Mop pees himself. Lexie (Chyler Leigh) suggests that they take out his appendix, but he draws the line at having a tube in his penis. Of course, Sadie volunteers to be the guinea pig as long as she gets to return the favor to another intern.
