We know from spoilers that Alex (Justin Chambers) will be five hours late to his oral exam, which we’re assuming left him just enough time to plead with his examiner and promise her that he’s a really, really good doctor. We could see him explaining his tardiness with the story of Morgan’s baby, and passing for the very television-friendly reason that he has a big heart.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) will be throwing up throughout her exam, and April (Sarah Drew) will be taking bathroom breaks where she freaks out and takes her top off. We see in the promo that Cristina’s (Sandra Oh) examiners will stand up and walk out on her, and we don’t know much at all about Jackson’s (Jesse Williams) exam. Could that be a sign that he, defying expectations, is the one who fails?
Then again, Meredith seemed pretty certain that she isn’t moving to Boston. Could failing be the last straw in that decision? Vote in the poll below.
Catch a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, May 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
