First up, everyone is studying for the boards, with some people having more trouble than others. Meredith wrapped up her “Torres method” with Callie and was all squared away for the Boards. However, the other residents were struggling, either because their personal lives were distracting them from their studying (Cristina) or because they were so totally over flashcards (everyone else). Eventually, Lexie ends up “broken” due to April and Alex overloading her precious brain with info to help them cram for their test.
Moving on to the big story arc: Cristina and Owen. After calling out sick from work with “the flu,” the troubled couple lock themselves down in their loft to go over What Owen Did. Can Cristina forgive him? He explains what happens, says that it was just sex, but Cristina isn’t moved. The fact that Owen can’t even remember his hook-up’s name bothers her. Why risk his marriage on some random woman he can’t even remember? Eventually, Owen walks out.
Despite all the Owen-Cristina drama, this was one of the slower episodes of the season. Compared to that main arc, everything else seemed to drag. However, the ending with Cristina studying with Mer was a nice touch. Even though this show is known for its relationship drama, the most important part of the show are the friendships. We give this episode 3.5 out of 5 stars.
