'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Meredith Worries About The Baby
On this episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy, the new Grey + Sloan Memorial Hospital is open for business. The doctors have a lot of brand new toys to play with, but most of them are too busy dealing with their own issues to enjoy them.
Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Thursday's episode, "Idle Hands."
I know, I know, I've already gotten way into this recap and I (gasp!) haven't said a word about Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) baby boy. Honestly, I was very excited by that and the only reason they didn't make it into my top favorite spot in this week's recap is simply because their scenes were so much shorter than Callie and Arizona's. Meredith constantly worrying about the baby is hilarious, because it is so like her. Normally a woman joking about the horrible things that could be wrong with her unborn child would be sick and not funny at all, but this is Meredith we're talking about here. Considering all that's happened to her, she's earned the right to be a bit melodramatic. But I hope now that she's seen that their baby is apparently perfectly healthy, and a boy (yay!), she can relax and just look forward to being a mommy again.
My other favorite story on this episode had to be the whole prank war that was rained down on poor Jason by Alex (Justin Chambers), Alex's young cancer patient and Richard (James Pickens, Jr.). It provided a lot of comic relief on the episode, which was fun, plus it was a very clever way to have Alex pick on Jo's (Camilla Luddington) new boyfriend without being too obvious. Then again, Jason didn't seem to be falling for it all being about the kid having a crush, so maybe Alex isn't as subtle as he thinks he is.
OMG!: Owen peeling back that woman's scalp to reveal her skull. Yikes.
Thank you, TV gods.: The docs finally get to use the LODOX.
Awk-ward: Jason putting a cup of urine next to Miranda.
Hotness: Arizona in her sexy lingerie.
Fab-u-lous: Arizona's new high-heel leg that makes her booty go "pow!"
Can. Not. Wait.: To see Derek and Meredith's baby boy!
Celebuzz Meter (1-10): 8. Call me shallow, but I have to give this one a high ranking just for the fact that it's the episode where we found out the sex of Derek and Meredith's baby. That's history in the making, right there.
Were you excited to find out that Derek and Meredith are having a boy?
