Grey’s Anatomy Season 10, Episode 16 Synopsis: Happy Birthday, Richard!

Bailey's (Chandra Wilson) birthday gift to Richard (James Pickens Jr.) in Grey's Anatomy Season 10, Episode 16 — "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," airing March 20 — puts any of our coworker presents to shame! Here's ABC's official synopsis:

It's Richard's birthday and Bailey invites him to scrub in on the case of a lifetime. Meredith [Ellen Pompeo] hires a research assistant to help with her portal vein project, and a scorned Callie gives Derek [Patrick Dempsey] quite the shock. Meanwhile, Shane [Gaius Charles] helps screen candidates for Cristina's [Sandra Oh] clinical trial and meets a young expectant mother (Keke Palmer) who needs his help.

Nothing says "Happy birthday and thank you for helping me get over my OCD" like the case of a lifetime, right?

Meanwhile, Meredith's new "research assistant" hire is likely the character played by Greek star Paul James, who might stick around the show for awhile!

It seems like Callie is out for retribution against Derek, though the "shock" she has in store better not be anything like the shock Richard and Heather (Tina Majorino) got in the hospital basement that fateful, stormy day. Miss ya, Mousey.

And now we know that Shane is the doc helping out the young pregnant woman played by True Jackson, VP's Keke Palmer. Let's just hope he's not too distracted by his lust for Cristina…
