On last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy
, the interns went all Lord of the Flies and just did whatever the hell they wanted. Led by Lexie (of all people), they came up with the ridiculous and stupid idea to perform a surgery on one of their own while the residents were busy with their own patients. One intern starts by letting the others inject him with an epidural and then putting in a catheter. Then, Lexie decides they should all perform an appendectomy on him. When he chickens out, Sadie volunteers. Lexie becomes nervous about the surgery, as she should be, since none of them know what the hell they're doing but Sadie just cuts herself and just like that, the appendectomy is under way!
In what world do interns have time to form a secret society where the blow off their duties in the hospital? In what world does no one notice? Everyone on their entire staff should have been fired for what transpired last night, with very few exceptions. In the real world, the entire intern staff would get axed as well as Meredith, Cristina, Izzie, Alex, and George. Did anyone else laugh to themselves a little at that holier-than-thou speech that they gave the interns at the end of the episode? As if none of them have ever broken rules, lied to their superiors, or put a patient's life at risk. Please!
This season, the doctors at Seattle Grace have been acting in a manner than is downright despicable. They've always been competitive for surgeries but as time goes on, they seem to care less and less about the people and more about their egos, their careers, and the accolades that come along with it. I mean, it's a pretty sad world when Mark and Alex have more heart than anyone else. How this hospital even manages to stay open is starting to be beyond me and the fault there ultimately lies with Richard. Without a strong leader, one who isn't yelling about his failing marriage or his inability to sleep, how can the team be successful? Someone needs to do something and fast!
