Ahhh…we’re finally back in a regular format! I mean, excluding the weird, black and white to color thing they were doing. Whatever. This is one of those great episodes where (almost) everyone is covered and there’s drama and conversation and yay!
Arizona and Callie : It seems appropriate to start with them, since the last episode was all about them. I guess, there’s tension. Not really a big surprise. Callie didn’t have a lot going on, but Arizona definitely did. I LOVE Karev and Arizona as friends. I like the way he talks to her, because Arizona needs someone who doesn’t take any bullshark and just keeps it very real. I think Arizona has a tendency to get stuck in her own ego and Alex can bring her back down to Earth.
Dr. Herman : Umm, WOAH! I’m not really surprised, actually. I was watching and definitely called it out. When she flipped out on Arizona, I was like, “She’s probably going to die.” NAILED IT! This should be some interesting, if not annoying, drama for the season.
Bailey and Husband : Is her husband going to start to be a regular? I don’t think so, seeing how Edwards is getting no time. The cast is too big. Gotta cut some people out! I was really, really, really, really super mad that the show has decided to single out a plus-sized woman as having health issues. This is so definitely fat shaming and a completely tasteless move. I hope this was just one mention and then it’ll go away.
Avery and April : What was with April being a totally psychotic a-hole? I mean, I know there was family stuff with her sisters last season (I think). I think it came off as cute. But April has always gone on about loving her family and whatnot, so why did she totally freak out on her mom. This seemed really out of character for her, honestly. Avery was all cuteness, though! I’m so glad April’s mom put her in her place.
Derek and Meredith : Ugh, whatever to their fighting. Meredith is just annoying me right now. Here we go again with the same old crap. But I’m loving Derek’s response to the New Grey situation. He’s so cute and sweet!
Weber and Maggie : Double ugh! Like, can’t the girl just cut him a break. He found out he had a grown up child and he’s just supposed to be all cool and perfect and not make a mistake? I do not see the way he handled it as awful as she seems to think. I think she needs to get over it and try to get to know Weber.
Also, Edwards is in this show still, maybe? She’s been getting a line and a half per episode lately. I guess she and Jo have to stick around because there is no reason for them to leave, but I’d like to see Arizona tackle Dr. Herman’s stuff and then move on to somewhere more prestigious. That would be great! What did you think? Aren’t you glad to finally get to know more about everyone else this season? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
