This week it was all about efficiency, efficiency, efficiency at Seattle Grace-Mercy West. Did that make for a good episode?

This episode had a good mix of humor, drama, and heart, just the way we like our Grey's.
The humor mostly revolved around the new "streamlined" methods Dr. Cahill introduced to Seattle Grace-Mercy West, including "big brother" surgeons watching through cameras in the walls, and a hernia skills lab that brought out Bailey's (Chandra Wilson) competitive streak.
The heart came from Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) finally getting through, in her own special way, to a young patient whose dreams of gymnastics stardom were crushed by a hip injury. Also good: Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) discovering her baby is kicking. Yay!
And the drama was Cristina's (Sandra Oh) patient, a Jehovah's Witness whose family refused to let them use blood, even though it put him at much greater risk. Sadly, he did not survive, much to intern Leah's dismay.
Meanwhile, Dr. Cahill ended up in the OR after she was at the right place at the right time, and we — and Owen (Kevin McKidd) — got a chance to know her a little better. She seemed to really enjoy being back in the OR, too.
However, in the end, nothing can change one basic fact: Dr. Cahill is at Seattle Grace-Mercy West to prepare it to be sold. The ER is going, no matter what. Uh-oh.
We give this episode 3.5 stars. What did you think?
