Callie’s alive, but she ain’t kickin’. She’s gone through several therapists, all of whom she dismissed for not pushing her hard enough. Callie wasn’t too stable before the head injury; now she’s twice as dangerous so who could blame the therapists. I thought having all the residents sneak her into see Baby Sophia, her newborn chicken look-alike, might soften her up. She cried for one second and then turned into She-Ra the next second, wheeling a hospital bed full of residents down the hall. If you weren’t a child in the 80s when He-Man was on television you probably think She-Ra is a reality TV star.
But no non-animated person is that strong, which is why after playing hospital taxi, Callie ruptures something and passes out. Hearing that Baby Sophia needs surgery may have something to do with it too. Callie may be down and out, but the resident’s win at ll cost mentality is still in full force. True pimp that he is, Karev withholds affection, or in this case, medical attention, until this woman promises to cough up $100,000 to fund a project that could earn him the chief resident spot. The fact that she’s a patient makes this deal a threat to his medical license. But it’s
just a piece of paper, right? Like a marriage Post-It.
Meredith isn’t thinking about her marriage Post-It or medical license when she tampers with Derek’s Alzheimer’s study. She’s been begging Derek to help Adele, but when Adele reminds her of the way Meredith’s Mommie Dearest borrowed her husband for 20 years or so, guilt tips the scale in Adele’s favor.
On a happier note, Callie and the baby survive their surgeries and are homebound. Before she dies, that “bitch,” Karev’s nickname for the elderly, dying, wealthy woman he blackmailed, leaves him $200,000 to transport sick children
from Africa to Seattle Grace for much needed surgeries. That being said, the theme of the next episode is so predictable, adoption.
