This one didn’t have a lot of plot progression, but it was really funny and character driven, so we liked it. Having all the attendings out drinking and eating and sleeping all night gave the residents a chance to shine and the attendings a chance to lighten up. Who called that Callie was going to cleanse her palate with a little Mark Sloan? Everyone? What happened to the blue streaks in her hair?
When Lexie told the parents their son died, we were really moved, but that was almost painful to watch. Lexie should have spit it out faster. Gosh, that was heartbreaking. But ask and you shall receive: We have been moaning about Jackson not having a storyline, but last night’s cocky guy was actually good in surgery and adept at communicating with Lexie without making it awkward for himself.
We want to like Teddy, but the only time we can really manage it is when she is talking about how Cristina is her best students. We want her to find someone though.
Things we liked:
- Cristina’s Early-Onset Alzheimer’s drink and Derek’s face when she called it that
- Drunk Bailey, slurring about Ben and fistulas. That was a really accurate impression of a drunk person. Was she really drunk?
- The chief smiling at Alex and Meredith while Stark was yelling at them
- Alex and Meredith joking about being the last two standing
- Alex and Meredith pulling off that surgery
- “No, this is not your dude. This is Chief Webber.”
- Owen’s reaction to Cristina crawling all over another guy and calling Owen her boyfriend. He should call Ryan on Life Unexpected and share notes over being too nice sometimes. However, a big fight would have been tiring. Could you see Burke handling Cristina’s crazy this season? Because it was inevitably going to come out. And it's not leaving in a hurry. According to Kevin McKidd, the show is building all this Cristina up to a big Owen/Cristina plotline that won't be easy.
This season is really mature and funny. The lack of Dead Dennys, triangles, tumors, affairs, too many speeches, and other things like that are making it easy to love this show again.
