Big decisions: According to the press release about the episode the residents "make their final decisions regarding post-residency positions" this week. Based on this sneak peek Cristina (Sandra Oh) is still committed to packing up and leaving Seattle, while April's (Sarah Drew) options are dwindling post-boards failure. Meanwhile, this sneak peek from TV Guide shows that Jackson (Jesse Williams) is also being wooed away. This spoiler from Shonda suggests many if not all of the residents chose to leave the hospital.
Derek and Meredith's argument: The residents aren't the only ones with swanky job offers: Harvard wants Derek (Patrick Dempsey) to head their neuro department. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) also has a great job offer in Boston, but based on this sneak peek, she still wants to stay at Seattle Grace-Mercy West. It looks like a big fight is brewing.
Mark admits his feelings: According to the press release, Mark (Eric Dane) manages to admit his feelings about Lexie (Chyler Leigh) … to Derek. Apparently he's still "torn between his love for Lexie and the fact that Julia can give him everything he's ever wanted." Damn it, Mark. This is Grey's Anatomy. Always pick love!
Ben and Bailey: According to the press release, Ben tries to plan "something extra special for Bailey [Chanda Wilson]." Based on this sneak peek, he's planned an entire day of fun. But, of course, Bailey "is preoccupied with her work." Well, there is an extra special parasite for her to play with. That's way better than a day hanging out with your super hot boyfriend.
Mysterious symptoms: For the patient of the week, we have "a couple on their third honeymoon [who] come to the hospital complaining of mysterious symptoms." We wonder if they are the ones with the gross foreign parasite that Bailey is so excited about.
Nick's story continues: Finally, according to the press release, "Arizona [Jessica Capshaw] encourages her childhood friend … to have surgery." We wonder if there's any hope for him after all the bad news that dropped last week.
Resolution for Cristina and Owen: According to Shonda Rhimes, fans "will feel like you know what's going to happen to" Owen/Cristina, though she adds that "their journey really does continue." That, combined with Cristina's desperate desire to leave the hospital and what looks like the couple hooking up in the preview suggests to us that they reunite one last time before deciding to break it off when Cristina heads elsewhere. But who knows. We could be totally wrong about that.
Catch the episode on Thursday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
