Grey's Anatomy Review: Two Shepherds, One Battle

at . Comments

Grey’s Anatomy returned tonight with "Have You Seen Me Lately?," the first hour in the GA/Private Practice Crossover Event. There were a few intense surgeries and an even bigger battle. Time to discuss.

Study Buddy. Boards are coming up for the residents and Webber has convinced Callie to work with Meredith. This is totally the right move. These two are both hardcore and do not get paired up enough. Watching them work together will most definitely be entertaining, especially if they continue to work on cases like putting a toe on a hand! Callie’s study methods may be the thing to help Mer prove she is as good as her last name.

In typical Alex fashion, he used his pregnant intern to help him study. The real Alex made an appearance when she had a heart attack and a premature baby. There is no other resident that is more perfect for Peds. He may be cynical but he loves saving those kids. The only issue is that the writers are all across the board with him. He’s sweet and caring one week, a jackass the next. The cycle goes round and round. We have seen real progress made for this character and it’s time to see him move forward. Or get a love interest. Balls in your court, Shonda.

Avery and Sloan

Be My Person. Wow. That was intense. Cristina and Owen hit up couples therapy to work on their issues that ultimately kept falling back on the abortion. Owen complained that Cristina is still a “twisted sister” with Meredith and that she should have a baby.

Here is the thing: Yang has always been upfront about her stance on children. Owen knew this and if it was a deal breaker, they never should have gotten married. The future is not looking too bright for these two and I imagine I am not alone in thinking they should separate for a while. Plus, there is no one more bad a** than a broken-hearted robot Cristina.

Get Out! Let it be said that Jackson and Mark may make the sexiest tag team of docs ever. Avery got some guts and kicked Bailey out of his OR with Sloan’s backup. You can now add this quality to their list of best bromance ever. Now, I, too, like my Bailey with a bit of bossiness. But even I would have gave her the boot.

Double Dose of Shepherd. In hour one, Amelia arrived at SGH to get Derek’s help for Erica. McDreamy was right to be concerned about his baby sis but it’s time for the Shepherds to do work. Come on, “it’s a beautiful night to save lives.” 

Only downside to this is that Amelia spent time with the wrong Grey. Even though Lexie is on Neuro, it would have been much better to see her interact with her sister-in-law. Maybe in the second hour...

Lex, Der

Small Doses:

  • Gotta love the shout out to the ice pick Owen pulled out of Cristina. Oh, the early days of love.
  • Callie working with Mer means more screen time. It’s about time.
  • The hand-in-meat-grinder case may have been the most disgusting in a long time. Pretty much awesome.
A solid hour to the start of the annual crossover event. Make sure to check out the review for Private Practice to get the details on the second hour. Will Amelia and Derek succeed in Erica’s surgery? Are Cristina and Owen headed for a divorce? Is Callie going to help Meredith pass her boards? Sound off and let us know!

@ghiocel The shrink said "I'm afraid OUR time is up." "Our" does not have the same meaning as "their" or even "your." Just sayin'


Oh yes! she's pregnant


yeah, I think mer's pregnant too.


i just know mer is pregnant !!! she has to be


This was a good episode! I like Mer and Callie together I hope she picks ortho
I like the Jackson and Mark team! I loved that Jackson kicked Bailey out of the OR and that Mark was the one that told him it was fine to do so! I also like when Bailey applogized and the talk her and Mark had
I think Chritina and Owen are done, sadly as I love them together. I think that Sandra Oh and Kevin Mckidd were so great and to me Emmy nominee preformances!!!!!


I don't like Mer in ortho, she is too feminine to do it. Callie is fit for it, she can easily crack a shoulder or a hip, but Meredith, not so much. They still can be good friends though.


The episode focused on special relationships between interns and attendants, between the older and the younger doctors, but I also found two interesting easter-eggs.
First hint: the shrink says to the Hunt family that their time is up.
Another important hint: the notes Alex is using belong to Izzie, "the smart one, the only smart one". I suppose Shonda is preparing her comeback by making her more present in dialogues.
I enjoyed the bonding between Amelia and Lexie, both impulsive, they throw things when pissed off (that's what Lexie did with Mark's new girlfriend at the softball game)and it took both their enthusiasm to convince Derek. Amelia is a drug addicted, like Lexie in the other reality from What/If. They are quite similar, and might become the new twisted sisters-in-law.
Interesting moment with Callie talking about Snow White Meredith with the mirror spirit Webber (i.e. creator of a magic web or The Puppet Master who control all the strings)


Callie & Meredith were awesome with the hand in a meat grinder. It would be stupid if Mer under Callie's tutelage with even flank (writers, take note) her board, so don't even think about it. Yang and Owen, get over it already,it's a drag. Why not re-unite Karev and Izzie to spice up the old tandems.


I agree. Callie and Meredith were awesome in this ep. I hope they become friends. Callie is already good friends with Cristina since they were roommates for so long. Remember when Cristina cut Callie's hair? Lol. I think there's no reason why Mer and Callie shouldn't be friends, it was mostly just that Izzie was a jerk to Callie and Mer let her act like that which I guess is sort of defacto jerkiness. Oh I also just remembered when Callie was going to kick Meredith's ass in the locker room I think in season three. Too funny.


Ooooh sooo funny when Mer is in the OR and Karev wanting her to puke and can't take it no more when doesn't "will u puke already ?!".
