Grey’s 13x21: And that’s how it’s done...
Great episode, with the perfect balance of (weird) medical stuff and personal crap. Both the episode (stories, music, etc) and Meredith herself reminded me of the old Grey’s.
About Mer and Maggie (and Riggs): I think Maggie has every right to be upset; being an adult or not, when your heart’s broken, your heart’s broken. You are allowed to feel a little pain. But the thing is, I don’t think her heart is broken, not by Riggs at least. Yes she liked him, but she wasn’t head over heals in love with him (anymore?). If any, her heart got broken by Meredith, who hasn’t been honest about the whole thing. While there have been plenty of options to just tell her. Like all the way in the beginning. It could have been a two sentenced conversation. Maggie: I like Riggs. Mer: Funny thing, I slept with him.
But she never said anything and they are sisters and this is what sisters do: they act childish, they play the I-am-right card for a while, they say I-am-done a couple of times - because they can. Because they are sisters so they’ll never be done, they’ll always be sisters. Safe ground for a fight. Fine. Fight. Cry about it. I give you one episode. This one was it. So we’re done now. Right?
Absolutely loved the worm case! Classic Grey’s! I believe having one of those little fuckers in your stomach isn’t even that rare, but boy, this was like a bowl of spaghetti! (What’s for dinner tonight, April?) Didn’t care for the story around the couple - the guy leaving, harder to believe than the worms! - but really enjoyed the doctors perspective.
The other story, with the pregnant woman, was really touching and very, very well done. Especially how Amelia and Arizona handled the DNR part, both that moment when the patient asked for it and those last couple of scenes in the OR.
Somehow I thought they’d pick up on the Arizona & Eliza storyline again, so it was somewhat disappointing that Eliza wasn’t even in the episode, but with this story the Arizona-parts where still great. (Still, it’s been like 7 episodes since that parking lot, a little progress wouldn’t hurt! Same with April and Jackson - it’s been weeks… what happened after their little trip together?)
Only three more episodes. Not enough. Never enough…
