Last night Grey’s Anatomy returned with “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Yes, there is an actual lion on the loose in Seattle, but, more importantly, Arizona is a playa who apparently slept with half of Seattle Grace’s female staff! Who knew?
Watching Callie trying to figure out how many female staff members her wife has slept with is quite hilarious. It must be a curse being married to someone as hot as Jessica Capshaw.
Feelings, Feelings, Feelings!
It’s been a week and Cristina still won’t talk to Owen about his affair. What is there to say? “Hey, Owen, you’re an a—h-le!” Since Cristina is giving him the silent treatment Owen reaches out to Meredith for guidance. Unbeknownst to Owen, Cristina didn’t tell Meredith about the affair because she didn’t want her soulmate hating her husband.
Cristina doesn’t speak to Owen at all during this episode but she does throw an entire bowl of cereal in his face. What a waste of a good bowl of cereal.
All this talk of cheating gets Meredith worked up.
Teddy attends her first group grief counseling session. (It’s about time!) But she’s not really embracing the group, and she even makes fun of another woman there who is mourning.
And once again Lexie struggles with the thought of wanting Mark back although, once again, she chickens out on telling him her true feelings. I’m ready for Lexie to move on and find another love interest. Paging Nurse Colleen! (For more information on Nurse Colleen, visit the Whores & Gore section below.)
Whores & Gore
Callie calls attention to the elephant in the room when she sees Nurse Colleen linger while hugging Arizona.
That holds Callie off for a while but she can’t let this new information on Arizona go bye without a struggle.
Arizona laughs and then just start pointing out numerous women in the cafeteria.
Mark talks Callie off the edge and puts it all in perceptive.
In the end Callie and Arizona kiss, make up and Callie strips off her shirt and reveals her adorable pink polka-dot bra. I love these two!
The lion is taken down by a tranquilizer after attacking its owner and her boyfriend. The wild animal is removed from the woman’s two bedroom apartment (in which it should have never been in the first place) causing the woman to blame and dump her boyfriend. Now that’s a good break up story.
Alex asks to be taken off of Arizona’s service to put distance between him and his intern, Morgan. Morgan doesn’t take Alex’s noticeable withdrawal well, and feverishly texts him non-stop. Morgan can’t come to grips with the failing health of her preemie.
Alex sounds off to Morgan: “I’m not his dad! I’m not your boyfriend and you can’t rely on me to make this decision.”
Arizona advises Morgan to consider AND (allow natural death) since her son is suffering.
Teddy had a good day in the operating room, repairing an elderly man’s heart. When she finishes, she races to deliver the good news to her patient’s wife but instead finds the woman dead in the waiting room. Teddy has to go back to her recovering patient and give him the sad news that his wife has passed away. Through her patient’s grief, Teddy is finally able to grieve herself. Teddy stares at herself in the mirror and repeats over and over again, “I am a widow. I am a widow. I am a widow.” (Good thing she didn’t say “Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice.”)
What did you think of this week’s episode? Did you enjoy Arizona’s storyline as much as I did?
