Several characters found themselves in unfortunate situations in Grey’s Anatomy season 12 episode 14, “Odd Man Out,” but fortunately, people — the characters themselves or someone else — also made things better. Richard mixed up the pairings to give the residents a chance to check out a new specialty, and Meredith and Amelia in particular didn’t seem too pleased with having Jo and Penny on their services, respectively. Meanwhile, Arizona made a risky decision for her patient and a tough one about April’s pregnancy.

Here are the ways someone fixed a bad situation in “Odd Man Out.”

But I’m here. I’m in Alex’s life and I’m staying. And you have to star respecting that,” Jo said. “Call your damn Army guy back and get your own boyfriend.”

If it’s on TV — especially if it’s a procedural or superhero show — chances are Meredith watches it. She has a love for all things fiction, starting from a young age with ER and The X-Files on the small screen and the Nancy Drew books. Arrow kicked off the Arrowverse and her true passion for all things heroes. She’s enjoyed getting into the minds of serial killers since Criminal Minds, so it should be no surprise that her latest obsession is Prodigal Son.
