This week on Grey’s Anatomy, morning dawns with Izzie and Alex cuddled in bed. Izzie leaves Alex to sneak out and smell a sweater. So apparently Katherine Heigl is still being punished for the Emmy stuff. Across town, Torres smells the empty pillow next to her. Grey and McD test out the new human alarm clock, as Christina barges in and hops in bed with them. She drops the bomb that Hahn is gone! As the girls discuss this, Derek surmises that she was talented is sad that she’s gone. Interestingly enough, this statement carries multiple meanings.
McD’s morning takes a positive turn with a knock on the door from a hot blonde. He opens the door and her back is to him, to make a more dramatic entrance. Why do people on TV do this? Who knocks on the door and then turns around? She enters the house and begins screaming for Deth! She runs into Meredith’s room and jumps into bed with the girls. Umm…new girl, I should let you know that ABC kind of frowns upon the whole girl on girl action.
Come to find out that this is Sadie, Meredith’s old friend and apparently ‘Deth’ is Meredith’s nickname. Well that is kind of appropriate, have you seen her? Christina is none to happy about sharing her friend’s bed with another woman after she had just trained McD to get out! Sadie and Mer excitedly begin to giggle and you know they are very close to a woo! Christina tries to join in but she is so not a Woo Girl. (Thanks How I Met Your Mother for my new favorite term. It’s legend-wait for it-dary! And my new self descriptor)
Christina, not having the accurate girl genes to continue in the woo fest, goes downstairs to talk to McD. She complains about not appreciating being kicked out of bed for another woman. McD expresses that he understands as he ices down his blue balls. The Woo Sisters know each other from backpacking through Europe before med school. Yang is pissed because Grey isn’t Deth! She’s Mer! You’re both wrong, she’s totally Skeletor, but this isn’t my battle.
As Team Fun enters Seattle Grace, Meredith explains that Sadie postponed residency to work at a morgue and is now at Seattle Grace to finish. Sadie hints that there are deep dark secrets of Deth’s, (other than the affair with the married man or banging in the on-call room?). Every time Sadie says ‘Deth’ Christina whispers ‘Mer’. Christina, Sadie and McD begin a passive aggressive “who knows Meredith the best” contest. Why anyone would want to win this contest is beyond me. There must be scenes with Meredith not sucking at life that have ended up on ABC’s cutting room floors.
Izzie is standing outside staring into space. Alex understands she is weirded out by the whole Denny Day, and wants to make sure she is ok. He reminds her it’s the past and that he is there for her to talk to. She sucks it up and enters the hospital. The first person Izzie sees when she walks in is Denny. Ruh roh. Izzie is obviously agitated. Who can blame her, if one of my exes kept showing up at my work, I’d be irritated too. In other news, Denny loves her new haircut but thinks she looks a little tired. I disagree Denny, I think she looks fine but I’m not digging her new haircut. I always disagree with the dead.
Yang approaches Lexie and discovers weird scratches. After inquiring, Yang chalks it up to more crazy Grey genes.
McD asks about Sadie, the “pre-Christina Christina,” and Grey is keeping her lips sealed on this one. Wow, if Grey doesn’t want to obsess over it, you know it must be juicy. Yang approaches the duo and tells Grey about pains on chicken arms, and no clues about why the witch caught a ride with the flying monkeys. Mer translates for Derrick (and everybody watching) that Lexie may be a secret cutter and that there is still no word on why Hahn left.
McD is thoroughly disturbed about the possibility of Lexie being a cutter and tells Mer that unless she wants Lexie to end up on “True Life, I’m a cutter” she better act like a big sister for a change and offer help. He reminds her that Lexie is family, but apparently unless you have a cute nickname for Grey and jump in bed with her first thing in the AM, cutting or no cutting, you don’t really matter.
Outside the pit, Yang awaits incoming trauma and tries to tie her bib. Dr. House approaches, cordially says good morning, and helps her tie it. The moment is sweet until Torres comes in with her “I just got dumped” rain cloud Yang asks about Hahn, and Torres shortly says that Hahn is gone, and that’s the end of it. How does Yang, her roommate, not know they were dating?? My roommates used to know what day my cycle started and certainly knew if someone was doing the walk of shame from my bedroom everyday!
Torres doesn’t want to talk Hahn, she just wants mangled bones and blood to occupy her mind. And the universe complies–in comes a man who was found in a trash can after being turned into a human pretzel Torres’ thirst is quenched and I threw up in my mouth for the first time this episode.
All hands are on deck for this one. They look over his x-rays, and his body is a complete mess. Sadie keeps trying to get involved and Yang keeps reminding her of her place – in the corner with her mouth shut. All 8 doctors surround the guy to pull him apart. As they all begin to pull him in different directions, the noise that it makes is seriously disgusting. (Vurp number 2) While trying to pull him apart the man wakes up screaming. This scene makes me wish the inevitable derm ward spin-off had already started. The guy keeps screaming and begs them to stop touching him. House forces them all to comply.
In less disgusting parts of the hospital, a new doctor, Dr. Dixon, is joining Seattle Grace today for a transplant. Chief asks Bailey to manage Dr. Dixon today. She is a little off, but she needs to be wooed to join Seattle Grace and replace Hahn. Alex is not excited about handling more crazy women today, between his ex and Izzie, he’s had his fair share. Dixon comes in, and she is a tall glass of “off.” She has a Rain-Man-meets-brilliant-doctor air to her.
Bailey begins to try and woo Dr. Dixon and Dixon keeps interrupting with random statements about the heart. Dixon does not seem interested in anything other than the heart. They take her to meet the transplant patient, a very spiritual Navajo who is afraid his heart is haunted by the dead person it came from. Izzie tries to talk to the man and Denny is laughing at the patient and tells him to take the heart. Dr. Dixon tells the patient that he’ll die a painful and agonizing death if he doesn’t take the heart, proving her people skills truly are impeccable.
Back with pretzel man, we learn that he is homeless and thinks if he can’t walk, he can’t survive. Which is obviously a lie because I see homeless people in wheel chairs all the time. Make yourself a funny sign and you’ll be set! But the guy refuses surgery unless it’ll make him walk, so House calls the surgery off.
The Navajo continues to argue with Dr. Dixon stating that he doesn’t want some haunted heart living in him. So… just as Izzie has begun to be haunted by Denny, she gets put on a case where the patient has a haunted heard. What are the odds???
The patient wants the heart back after the transplant so they can perform a ritual on it to stop the haunting. Dr. Dixon refuses because this is against the rules. Rules are rules, laws are laws she says over and over again. Dixon is pretty black and white, there is no room for Grey. Ha! Get it?
The McBros argue with House about calling the pretzel surgery. You can’t patch up his open and disgusting wounds and walk away to let him die. But House is all about the patients needs and wants. Hmm, maybe when he was Yang’s doctor he KNEW she needed and wanted some action, so that explains the kiss. You think? Let’s hope for his sake no horny cougars come to the ER, because it could get ugly. McD is not ok with this and tells Major House he needs to head back to the desert. Patient’s wants come second here in #12, looking impressive is first!
McD then asks Torres to build the homeless guy some legs. At least he has really good insurance to pay for the inevitable experimental surgery. Oh…wait, awkward.
Torres begins looking at the bones and figures out that if they get a bunch of titanium together they can build him legs, Lincoln log style. Sadie keeps trying to get a word in and Yang continues to verbally bitchslap her. Grey asks for a little slack on Sadie’s behind. Yang reminds her she’s an intern and she’s lucky she ain’t calling her #5.
Bailey, still working to woo Dr. Dixon, asks the Chief to declare a “rule” that will allow the Navajo to get what he wants, and not upset the rule-abiding Dr. Dixon. The Chief obliges and declares a new “rule” that Seattle Grace respects patient’s personal religious beliefs as a rule…not just a common courtesy. Take that newbie.
In an awesome moment, Yang tries to kiss the ass of Dr. Dixon. As she introduces herself, Dixon asks if the yellow haired girl was taken off her surgery. Yang says no, and Dixon asks why Yang is speaking to her. Damn, karma’s a bitch Yang. Yang, being hated by yet another cardiovascular surgeon, begs to know what happened to Hahn. When probing Torres for answers she finally pieces together that Hahn was Torres’ girlfriend.
Yang is shocked and asks the million dollar question to find out if Torres is a lesbian. Sloan corrects that she might be a “oncebian.” Aren’t all girls oncebians one drunken college night? Sloan gets very big brother and protective in this scene and says she’s fine. MMM, me likey protective Sloan.
Meredith plays big sister and checks in on Lexie to make sure things are ok and that she isn’t a secret cutter. Sloan approaches to see if “little Grey” wants to help on the Lincoln log surgery. Mer seems a little disturbed by the “Little Grey” name. Hey, you aren’t the only one with nicknames Deth!
Based on the secret cutter question, Lexie decides the interns need to take a mini-break from the intern stiching each other operation. (Vurp #3) Sadie, who has joined the club, argues they just need to be more careful. Lexie doesn’t seem thrilled by Sadie joining the intern club. She was happy being the only intern recognized in the credits. In effort to keep the secret society quiet, Sadie takes off her shirt and cuts her back open to see who wants to stitch her up. So the secret society will continue, they just will work on more secretive body locations. Anyone else finding this slightly sexy? Besides the nerdy male interns staring at a topless Sadie.
Grey asks McD to talk to Sloan about not hitting on Little Grey. If she is a cutter, getting man whored by Sloan will not help. Elsewhere, Sloan approaches Torres to make sure she is ok and offers support about Hahn. Protective and sweet, I am totally beneath new Sloan. I mean…behind.
Izzie returns to the Navajo to inquire about the haunting. After asking a bunch of questions, the patient realizes that Izzie has a ghost following her around. Not surprisingly, the patient doesn’t want Izzie performing his surgery. Not because he thinks she’s crazy, he just doesn’t want another ghost in the room. Obvs!
Major House talks homeless pretzel guy into the surgery. McD lets the patient know that Medicare will pay for the homeless guy to go through rehab and it will cover his room and board. Damn, maybe homeless guy should’ve been crushed by a garbage truck years ago! Somewhere, a republican just threw their highball at the television.
The ghost heart transplant starts as Izzie….and Denny, watch from above. She continues trying to ignore him, but he begs for her to touch him because he is real and wants her to believe. During the surgery, Bailey lets Dr. Dixon knows about the official “rule” about following cultural beliefs they have to oblige. Dixon says fine and asks to get back to the surgery. Dixon might not be a people person, but I would rather her working on my heart over any person I’ve ever seen on this show.
Mid-surgery, a miracle happens and the heart begins to beat on its own. It defies science and shocks everyone in the OR. After the surgery they share the miracle with the Navajo who isn’t surprised as it mirrors his beliefs. Dixon can’t comprehend this miracle, especially in a #12 hospital on a non-experimental surgery.
Izzie gives him the heart, which he tells her has to completely burned in order to rid himself of the haunting. He explains you cannot touch or keep anything of the dead’s or the haunting won’t stop, especially clothes. And since Izzie woke up today and hugged Denny’s sweater, put his favorite underwear on beneath her clothes and braided a lock of his hairs into hers, she is pretty much screwed. Side note-: this should have been the Halloween episode.
Meanwhile, the homeless guy’s surgery looks like a car mechanic’s shop. They have hammers and wrenches and a truck load of titanium. Sloan notices that Lexie is performing a very impressive type of stitch on the homeless guy.
Chief is impressed by Lexie’s stitches as well, and compliments Yang on her excellent teaching. He continues to say that this type of teaching might award Yang the solo surgery. How badly does Lexie want to throw a piece of titanium at Yang right now? The only reason she can do the impressive stitch is because she learned on Sadie’s abdomen earlier this afternoon.
Torres is feeing pretty positive about the surgery, and is excited about rebuilding the guy’s skeleton. Shortly after she says this, the man begins to crash and eventually flat lines. They call the man’s time of death and Torres flips out on everyone. She demands why everyone let him die while she built his bones from scratch. She goes completely postal and I’m no psyche major, but I’m willing to guess that there might be something else behind this rage. If only I knew what…
Bailey follows Dixon out to say goodbye. Dixon and Bailey board the elevator and Dixon tells Bailey that she loves the heart, it is her main interest. She also tells Bailey that she has asperger disorder. (Same as the girl from ANTM!) She let’s Bailey know that she might not always immediately catch-on to sarcasm, but that she isn’t an idiot. She knows that she’s been manipulated and spoken down to all day and lets Bailey know she doesn’t like the hospital and won’t be returning. Damn, and Bailey’s the NICE one!
Finally, a McBro convo! McD tells Sloan that Meredith has some concerns….Sloan responds with, “what a surprise.” LOL Sloan, snarky and protective? McD tells Sloan to keep Little Sloan out of Little Grey, other wise Big Grey, won’t let Little Dreamy in the little cobweb cave. Well, he said part of it at least. Sloan is only offended that he was called little Sloan. He seems otherwise uninterested in Little Grey.
My theory on this is, that earlier this season they were going to put Sloan and Lexie together, but now that Hahn left….a little early, they are going to put him with Torres, so they need to quickly stop the Lexie-SloMance. Thoughts?
Izzie begins to leave for the day and is confronted again by Denny. She tells him that she loves him, and that she had wanted to marry him and have kids together, but life didn’t work out that way. She asks him to be at peace and leave her alone.
Yang storms into the intern locker room and discovers stitches and wounds. She calls them out on what they are doing and tells them to shut it down. She reminds them it is insane and disgusting and has to stop. PS. I hate this story line. But I wasn’t a very good student and would never do this kind of study, so who am I to weigh in.
In the Mer/Der bed, McD asks to learn the Deth stories of the past. He says he is owed after he asked Sloan to keep his little out of the little. Nothing like a little emotional blackmail between two lovebirds. Grey is thrilled and shares the Deth secrets from the past.
At the bar, Sloan, Yang and Torres are drowning their sorrows and discussing the pains of breaking up. Yang glances at Major House wistfully across the bar. She follows him out when he leaves and apologizes that they lost the patient. He acts furious and begins another repeat yourself over and over again Grey’s Anatomy speech about how he doesn’t need Yang. Then he throws her against the wall and makes out with her. When he pulls away, Yang walks away dazed. Atta girl, always leave them wanting more!
At home Alex confronts Izzie and begins another one of those speeches where they say the same thing over and over again (NOT YOU TOO ALEX!). Basically he knows she is struggling and he wants to help her. She gives him Denny’s sweater and asks him to burn it.
As the sweater burns, Izzie is joined in her room by Denny. He is bummed about the sweater, it was his favorite. Izzie says over again over again “you are not real.” (Ok, this over and over again statement I understand.) Denny begs Izzie to touch him, and she finally does. She can feel him. So crazy is tangible! Good to know! She then begins to make out with him….
The scenes for next week, show Izzie getting ready to have sex with a ghost and the interns taking out each other’s organs. Umm..what is going on with this show!? Also, I read that apparently Sadie is bisexual. So maybe Grey’s Anatomy is having a mid-life crisis, and traded their older lesbian in for a younger, hotter model? Can’t say I blame them.
What did you guys think? Why does this show think it can’t survive without the Izzie/Denny love story? He is dead! If you wanted to give them a love story, maybe you shouldn’t have killed him off and made Izzie lie on the bathroom floor for an entire episode. And was it just me or was Sloan super hot this episode? A little of his little could go a long way….That’sWhatSheSaid.
