We enjoyed this one, which did a good job balancing intense medical drama and a fun side competition between Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jackson (Jesse Williams) with an exploration of how a lot of the main characters are feeling about the changes at the hospital.
 
Alex and Jackson humorously battled it out to be the new face of the hospital, but their competition was set against a serious, moving case involving two young trans college students trying to navigate young love, family, and physical changes.

Meanwhile, Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Callie (Sara Ramirez) took things into their own hands by visiting another hospital run by the same company that plans to buy Seattle Grace-Mercy West, and what they discovered was highly disconcerting. So disconcerting that Richard is considering early retirement, and Callie's finally decided the docs from the plane crash should buy the hospital.

In more dramatic news, April (Sarah Drew) put her job — and those of many of her co-workers — at risk so that they could save the life of a young boy who'd been in a hit and run. This led to a heart stopping race against the clock, as the docs struggled to do their job while staying hidden from Cahill. It was edge-of-our-seats thrilling, and definitely our favorite part of the episode.

Overall, we give this episode 4 stars. What did you think?
