Grey's Anatomy- Remember the Time

What happened: We go back to the day the survivors of the plane crash were found. They were in the woods for four days. Meredith is the healthiest and recovers quickly. Bailey and Richard show up to Idaho to sedate the injured doctors and fly them back to Seattle. They bring Zola, which helps Meredith emotionally. We find out that Mark had a surge of energy that kept him alive enough to make instructions, say his goodbyes, and reflect on what's really important in life.

Cristina is psychotic and mute. She has to be restrained because she keeps attacking doctors. Fortunately, Owen is able to calm her down, take her home, and care for her. She tells him what happened in the woods. Bugs tried to get in Arizona's legs and animals fought over Lexie's body. Cristina didn't sleep all four days and Mark kept trying to die on her, which was "annoying." When Cristina gets her mind back, she runs off to Minnesota, despite Owen and Meredith's protests.

Derek's hand recovers to 80% function and Callie does a risky operation on him in an attempt to get it back to full usefulness. Arizona's leg is in bad shape, but she makes Callie promise to save it. When Arizona crashes, the doctors realize the leg has to go. Alex cuts it off. Callie takes the blame because Arizona already hates and blames Alex for her pain (because he should have been on the plane).

What we thought: And the hits just keep on coming. We're glad this wasn't the premiere. It was too dark. Still, it was well-constructed and didn't seem silly or melodramatic like last week. We haaate when Cristina goes nuts. That girl is not good after a tragedy. She's great during one though.

From her reaction, we thought Cristina had been attacked by zombies or something.  It was great when she threw the flower vase at the mean interns. Cristina's description of the four days made us realize it really was that horrible. Animals fighting over Lexie?!! So freaking sad.

Owen taking care of Cristina was pretty sweet, but it obviously wasn't enough to make up for the cheating, since she ended up moving. Guys, take note. It takes a lot to fix that. He was really reasonable with the Arizona situation too.

We're liking Owen a lot more this season. It seems like he's got it together and is making the wise decisions even when he knows he's not going to get anything out of it. Nobody is going to like him or stay married to him, but he plods along. Cristina is brilliant for leaving. Seattle Grace Mercy West is a death pit.

Nice LOST reference by Bailey in the beginning. Meredith asking about Lexie almost got us crying again. Mark's death was sadder in this episode than last episode. We love The Surge. The Surge is a gift. Surprisingly, Derek handled his bum hand with a good attitude. For once. 

We liked Derek trying to move on to Harvard and resigning himself to a life of teaching and advising. We loved him taking the risk with Callie. Callie is the new Cristina and Bailey all wrapped up into one. We could not love her more right now.

Arizona said awful things to Karev. How can people just vent like that? We guess she was devastated, but MAN. He doesn't deserve it. One day, he's just going to crumble beneath all his guilt. The leg plotline is riveting. There was one good joke (Chunky Stu), and the end with the phone calls was perfect.

We still like this show. It's just time to table the end-of-season tragedies for a couple of years. It's getting ridiculous. It's happy ending time this season, Grey's. Like in seasons four and five.

Episode grade: B


  1. Good episode. Def less emotionally scarring than the last. I agree with you on Callie: She has been great this season. I normally like Arizona, but she's been kinda awful this season. I understand she's in a very rough place, but come on, you can't treat people that way. I've been through a major tragedy & I never treated people like that. I'm not really liking the interns much: They're too mean. I also agree with you about Owen. He seems to have matured. Hope we get a little relief from this heaviness later in the season!

    1. Usually going through a tragedy makes you more compassionate. Not Arizona. I really love her though.
