There were a lot of things going on this week, and some were better than others. Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) was back in the hospital, and doing pretty well. Even when she fell, she managed to find some humor in the situation, which is an improvement, and at the end of the episode she was full of smiles. We loved seeing her laugh.
Derek (Patrick Dempsey) is clearly scared to have his hand operated on again, because if it goes wrong it would mean the end of hope. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Callie (Sara Ramirez) spent most of the episode desperately trying to get him to give fixing it a shot. While we hope Derek eventually comes around, we found this plotline a little boring.
Also on the boring, though sometimes funny, side was Bailey (Chandra Wilson) protesting that she doesn't want a big wedding. We knew she'd give in.
On the other hand we loved April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson's (Jesse Williams) story. April thought she was pregnant, which led to an adorable scene where Jackson declared he's "all in." He said he would marry her and raise the kid with her. It was the kind of romantic scene Grey's is known for. Too bad that when April realized she wasn't pregnant she immediately started celebrating not having to marry Jackson, and being "free." He broke things off, because hearing that hurts.
Then there was Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh). Owen was embroiled in lawsuit drama, while Cristina was busy discovering she has accidentally learned to care. The end result was that Cristina seemed to decide to try to get Owen back, but Owen put an end to that by asking for divorce. OUCH.
But the best part was right near the end: Meredith is pregnant! Hurray!
We give it 3.5 stars, with bonus points for the good news. What do you think?
I didn't love it.
