'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: What Will Happen to Miranda?
The doctors help some visiting colleagues learn how to get by with less equipment, while an infection seems to be spreading through patients treated by one particular doctor.
So, who's the "culprit?"
Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Thursday's episode, "She's Killing Me."
There were a couple of great storylines in this episode, which makes it harder to pick my absolute favorite. But I think I'm going to have to go with the infection running through the hospital and everyone thinking that Leah (Tessa Ferrer) caused it when it might have actually been Miranda (Chandra Wilson).
Another one of my favorite stories in this episode was everyone banding together to help the two Syrian doctors. I loved when they took away all the extra instruments and turned off the lights to show the Grey + Sloan docs exactly what kind of conditions they had to work in back home. I also got a kick out of Owen (Kevin McKidd) walking into the room with all of his surgeons and dumping a box on the table with a few instruments in it and telling his people that they were going to have to make it work somehow.
It made me smile because it so reminded me of a similar scene in Apollo 13 and it made the whole thing feel like an adventure. I realize that's an awful thing to say when talking about people whose goals were too ultimately save lives, but that's how I felt.
Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) had some great moments in this episode too. I totally knew that there was no way she would ever want to be a mother to Meredith's kids and, frankly, I was a bit surprised that Meredith didn't see that. But, I think Meredith was hoping that if it were her children, Cristina would feel differently. We all want to see what we want to see when it comes to our friends.
I liked that they were able to be so honest and have that conversation, as well as the conversation about doping Meredith with morphine at the first sign of Alzheimer's without any drama. I don't think I'll ever get enough of their quirky, wonderful friendship.
Speaking of Cristina and kids, I was so happy when she finally caught on to why Owen was freaking out over her patient. I loved seeing him interacting with children -- which makes the fact that Cristina doesn't any that much more heartbreaking -- and I thought it was sweet how he really connected with the little boy. I really hope all of this kid-bonding isn't setting Owen and Cristina up for another fight though. It feels like they were just getting back in stride after everything that's happened.
OMG!: Meredith finding out that she had tested positive for more than one marker for Alzheimer's gene.
Thank you, TV gods.: The little boy's mom waking up and remembering him. My heart could not have handled another scene like we had between those two in the last episode.
Awk-ward: Cristina admitting to Meredith that she loved Zola, but she didn't want to be her mother.
Hotness: Pretty much every scene with Owen and the little boy. Just because I find him so sexy when he is being all protective, especially for his younger patients.
Fab-u-lous: Meredith and Cristina having their coffee overlooking the city. Yes, I know it was fake, but it was still pretty.
Can. Not. Wait.: To see how they will resolve the issue with Miranda and her infectious patients.
Celebuzz Meter (1-10): 8. A good medical mystery and a few great storylines gave this one high marks in my book.
What did you think of this episode? Do you have any idea what is going to happen to Miranda now that they've traced the infections back to her?
