Cristina pulls Owen aside and tells him that she’s pregnant. Owen is ecstatic and Cristina very upset.
Cristina: I don’t want a baby.
Owen: Well you have one!
Cristina: Are you getting all life-y on me?
Then Cristina starts to cry.
Cristina: I don’t want one. I don’t hate children I respect them. I think they should have parents that want them.
Owen: I want them. I want them and maybe you could, too. I believe your life can be bigger than you think it is.
Owen tells Cristina that he wants them to figure out together what is best for their family. This is why it’s important to discuss your family values and priorities before you get married and buy a fire station.
Cristina tries to find her soul mate (Meredith) to confide in, but Meredith is busy getting reamed out by Derek and the Chief. Meredith insists that they should just fire her because she’s not going to tell them what she did. Alex interrupts the interrogation and hands the Chief the paperwork he asked for. With Alex’s help, the Chief figures out that Meredith tampered with Adele’s placebo. (Umm, you’re welcome!)
April is bored so she suggests warming up liquids for the soon to be arriving survivors. Mark explains to April that they’ve been waiting so long that he doesn’t think that anyone survived the crash.
Back in the interrogation room, the Chief suspends Meredith and Derek storms off. Don’t worry, her suspension doesn’t start until after this episode.
Mark was right, none of the passengers have survived so now the doctors must identify their bodies and deliver the bad news to their relatives. In the middle of the sadness and chaos, Owen walks over to the bulletin board and posts the Chief Resident position. Is that really the best time to make that announcement? The winner is April! I knew it.
The other residents roll their eyes and no one congratulates April. What a bunch of jerks. Alex chases after Owen and tells him that April is the wrong choice. Owen tells Alex that he was going to make him the Chief Resident but since he sold out Meredith none of his peers will ever trust him again.
Karma’s a bitch!
In trying to persuade Cristina to keep their baby, Owen says he’s willing to take up to a year off from work and tells her not to worry because the baby will be “his problem.” He actually calls the baby his “problem.” Cristina reminds Owen that she’s not a monster and if there is a baby around she’ll notice and she’ll love it. Owen takes that as good news, but he’s misreading Cristina, who insists that she doesn’t want to have the baby. Owen says that if she loves him, she’ll take least consider having the baby.
Maybe these two should try having a dog first. If they don’t have time to walk it three to five times a day then they definitely shouldn’t have a baby.
The doctors must deliver the sad news to the victim’s families so they call them out one by one and escort them to private rooms.
Teddy is back bothering Henry again, but this time she brought pudding. I love pudding! Henry snaps at Teddy, “I really tried to be a gentleman about this but now you need to get the hell out! Letting you go was the worst thing I’ve ever done. It was the most painful thing I’ve ever done and I’m a guy who’s had 82 surgeries my threshold for pain is pretty high. You need to get out. I’m not your best bud, I’m not your security blanket. I’m a man who’s in love with you.”
Then he tells her to go off to Germany and leave him alone. What an a-hole! Henry acts like he’s the first person in the world to ever have broken heart. Did he forget that Teddy married him to save his life? (Ladies, if this isn’t a PSA about why you shouldn’t marry a man, then I don’t know what is.)
April answers the hospital phone (where are the receptionists?) and finds out there is one lone survivor coming into the hospital.
