I trust that every self-respecting Grey's Anatomy
fans have by now seen the most recent episode, which is also a cross-over with its daughter show Private Practice
. Thankfully, there are a lot of storylines on this episode that moved considerably, including: Bailey's (Chandra Wilson) love life, Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie's (Chyler Leigh) relationship, and - of course - Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Yang's (Sandra Oh) very precarious tandem. We have also identified the instrument to Karev's (Justin Chambers) infidelity, and it's a little anti-climactic if you ask me.
Bailey is on the market!
It's kind of depressing, however, that Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and her little baby-voice and sad eyes have been reduced to being the marriage police, watching over Alex and Mercy Wester Reed as they make little bargains that included surgeries and on-call rooms. But on to other things (because the Chief's drinking problems are slightly uninteresting, really).
Isn't it interesting that it's Derek (Patrick Dempsey) who has taken it upon himself to look for someone Bailey can date? On this Grey's episode, he recommended someone, and the guy wants to show Bailey something "during lunch."
The guy looks like a weakling, and if you don't have a sturdy spine, you won't last two seconds with Bailey, much less date her! So she went on on why dating her would be torturous ("I'm permanently angry, they call me the Nazi around here and it's not because of my eyes" or something), something that will rattle around 80 percent of the male population and send them away.Lexie and Mark are over!
So two girls roughly the same age living in the same unit with a guy. Complication: one of the girls is the guy's daughter and he's dating the other one. Result: girlfriend and boyfriend can't make out in peace because daughter doesn't knock. Optional corollary: girlfriend walks in on lesbian couple next door making out in the shower.
For starters, the relationship of Mark and Lexie has - or had - it merits. It's easy to recall that Mark used to be a man-whore before Lexie, and she, for some reason, was able to tame him. Unfortunately, daughter enters the picture, and, confronted with a choice between daughter and girlfriend, Mark chose - rightfully - his daughter.
A little segue, though: isn't Addison (Kate Walsh) amazing? Didn't she just light up her scenes? There's way too little of her on this episode, however.
"You can have him!" - Yang
It probably startled everyone when, aghast in bargaining for Teddy (Kim Raver) to stay, Yang blurted out, "You can have him." You see Teddy is still in love with Owen, and it had been torture for her to work in the same hospital as he and his girlfriend, plus the fact that said girlfriend is her resident.
After a very harsh surgery on this episode, Teddy decided to pack her bags and go. Finding out, Cristina chased her and told her that the surgery was the first time she felt like a surgeon, and she couldn't go because she believed in her more than Yang believed in herself. In the heat of things, Teddy said, rather exasperatedly, "I want Owen." And without missing a beat, without even a nano-second passing, Yang said, "You can have him."
I bet a million eyes dilated at that line, all of them saying WTF?Alex doing a Chuck Bass
Did anybody else notice that Alex was affecting that brooding, mysterious guy on this episode of Grey's Anatomy? Negotiating with Reed (who visibly couldn't contain her joy), he was doing a Chuck Bass, coming close, deep, breathy voice, and flailing eyes. Meredith dutifully reminded him that Iz (Katherine Heigl) is still his wife, that they're still married. He made a good point, however, when he said that Mer's post-it wedding did a million times better than his.
At the end of the episode, when he sat down on Lexie's bed, we already saw what was coming. The two made out, and things are going to be oh so interesting when Grey's returns next week.
