Callie/Arizona 10/10 (Moving iiiiiiin! :D)
Cristina/Owen 982,373,476/10 (wedding. YES. A WEDDING PEOPLE.)
After last season’s gunman rampages, Seattle Grace Hospital is definitely not the same. Dr. Perkins has been brought in to help with the recovery of the doctors. He has to assess which doctors are ready to go back to work and which ones aren’t.
We learn that Dr. Bailey left the city with her son to stay with her parents for a month. Meredith has had to bail Derek out of jail for reckless endangerment while driving numerous times. Lexie has extreme PTSD and sleep deprivation (Mark had to commit her to psych in the flashback we see) and everyone is treating her like she’s a complete nutcase.
Alex decides to keep his bullet from the shooting in his chest as he thinks that “the chicks dig it”.
Cristina has completely rushed into marrying Owen and has thrown herself into planning it. Meredith is worried about Cristina and thinks that maybe she shouldn’t have been cleared for surgery.
Meredith spends most of the episode trying to figure out why she seems to be the only one not cleared for surgery. Dr. Perkins knows that she is holding something back and won’t let her operate until she opens up. Meredith is keeping the fact that she had a miscarriage a secret from Derek. When Derek is pulled over for speeding and taken to jail again Meredith refuses to bail him out. He ends up missing Cristina and Owen’s wedding.
Arizona is worried that Callie is going to propose but in the end it turns out that she just wants them to move in together.
Callie and Arizona
Callie asks Arizona to move in with her.
Arizona: Lame surgery ran long. Sorry. What’d I miss?
Callie: I have something… to ask you.
Arizona: Oh no.
Callie: I want you to move in with me. I love you, and you have a drawer, and a toothbrush, and I want you to have a whole dresser and a whole.. blow-dryer. Or something.. more romantic than that or.. something.
Mark: You’re doing great. Push through.
Callie: [whispers] Okay. [Mark leaves] unless you’re totally hating the idea which.. would be okay.
Arizona: Is that it?
Callie: Is what it?
Arizona: You just want me to move in.. to a place that I basically already live?
Arizona: Thank god. Yes, yes. Calliope, yes. I would love to have a dresser, and a blow-dryer, or something more romantic.
Mark and Lexie
Mark gets protective about Lexie being cleared for surgery.
Mark: You cleared Lexie Grey for surgery? I had to check her into Psych last week. I had to commit her against her will! And you just clear her for surgery? What the hell kinda doctor are you?
[Mark sees that Lexie has come into the room]
Lexie: It’s ok. You can talk to him.
Alex: I’ll come back…
Mark: Yeah, walk away! You’re good at that.
Dr. Perkins: She got snowed. Psych put her on heavy doses of antipsychotics and benzos. And then she slept for almost 50 hours straight. When she woke up, she was no longer a risk to herself or others. I mean, she has PTSD. Most of you do. For her, it caused severe sleep deprivation and led to a breakdown. All she needed was sleep. So protocol is that she goes back to work.
Lexie: See? I’m okay, really.
Meredith and Derek
Meredith: You were amazing in there.
Derek: Let’s make a baby.
Meredith: [Shocked] What?
Derek:…Come on. Let’s do it. Let’s start right now. Let’s just pull the goal view… (pager beeps) Oh God. It’s Greg. Damn it.
Cristina and Owen
Cristina and Owen GET MARRIED. ULTIMATE SHIPPER HEAVEN. :D
Meredith: [voiceover] When we say things like “people don’t change” it drives scientists crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It’s always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It’s the way people try not to change that’s unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that’s up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment…
Cristina: I do.
Meredith: [voiceover] We can be born all over again.
