This episode of Grey's Anatomy, "The Distance," was, at its essence, a tale of two surgeons. Amelia Shepherd operated on Nicole Herman. Arizona Robbins operated on Glenda Castillo. For Shepherd, it was about emerging from her brother's shadow at last and claiming her rightful place as a great surgeon in her own right while saving a woman's life. For Robbins, it was her first solo flight without her mentor and staking her own claim as Herman's heir in the emerging field of fetal surgery while saving the lives of mother and baby. Both surgeons had something to prove. Neither went down without a fight.
