Grey's Anatomy- Can't Fight Biology review/recap

This episode of Grey's Anatomy was slow after the high-intensity episodes that started off the season. So far, this season is going well, and we haven’t had a ridiculous Dead Denny-type storyline, so we are not going to complain that this episode seemed like a filler. We appreciated the humor, the actual adult problems, the direction in which the relationships are going, and the warm tone, but that doesn’t mean we are going to think about this episode in weeks to come.

The Cases
Our main gripe with this episode is that there were too many patients, and none of them were particularly memorable. Well, we liked the revelation that one patient had rammed her car into a Laundromat to hit her husband, who was inside doing his new girlfriend’s laundry. She was sufficiently creepy as she confessed, thinking that her crime would fall under doctor/patient confidentiality. Another woman had Huntington’s disease from her mother, and this inspired Meredith to get tested for the Alzheimer’s gene. Then we had a biologist who had consumed a bunch of worms in an experiment intended to cure asthma. Sadly, the gross worms were killing him, so Bailey had to operate and take them out. We liked this case the best, because it struck a blow to the depressing plotline that is Pathetic PTSD Cristina. As the biologist moaned about his purpose in life and finally finding some work he was born to do, you could see the gears moving in Cristina’s brain. Maybe now she will go back to her love, surgery. Cristina also saved the man’s worms so that he could have them when he recovered. Finally, there was the 15-year-old ballet dancing boy with bone cancer in his leg. The doctors wanted to amputate, but the boy freaked out and asked Alex to come see him dance so Alex would be more committed to finding a solution without taking the leg. Alex, Callie, and Arizona went down to the ballet studio and watched, which we didn’t find entirely believable. Aren’t we always seeing how busy these doctors are? We weren’t blown away by the ballet either. There was one cool move, and the rest of the time, the camera focused too much on peoples’ faces. We didn’t get much resolution on the case either. We guess the alternative surgery worked.

The New Dark and Twisty Couple
Cristina and Owen looked for a place to live. Owen found an old firehouse. What is this, Better With You? No, because what makes this show a better show than that laugh track-infested sitcom is the female counterpart’s reaction. On Better with You, all the women are shrews from 90s rom-coms, and they hated the idea of living in a firehouse. Cristina acted like Owen was offering her a choice between a turkey or beef sandwich. Owen had to say, “If we are going to choose where we life, I need you to care.” In the end Cristina chose the firehouse, because it made Owen happy, and she still didn’t care.

Everybody Else
Why are April and Jackson at Meredith’s now? We totally missed this. That takes the number of residents up to six. MerDer are trying to procreate, but Meredith’s uterus is “hostile.” What is this, Friends? Arizona was having trouble bonding with her girlfriend’s best friend, McSteamy, but she made an effort, and it looks like they are on the road to being cool with each other. There was some weird plotline where Jackson used his good looks on Teddy to get into surgery, because Teddy was objectifying him in conversation behind his back (and he heard it). Lexie was jealous of April and Meredith bonding, and we don’t blame her, because April was just annoying enough to ask for a house “chore wheel.” Lexie confronted Meredith about how out of the loop she felt. Meredith told her that she wasn’t alone in the psych ward, because Meredith actually sat by Lexie’s bed for 36 hours while she slept. Awww. Meredith opened up about her pregnancy troubles too.

Favorite line- Arizona: “Mark has abs where his soul should be.”

Episode Grade: B-
