‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Will Alex fight back?
On this episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, one doctor is traumatized by her past, more than a few are trying to figure out where they stand romantically and a couple may end up in serious fist fight very soon.
Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Thursday’s episode, “Do You Believe in Magic”
I wouldn’t have expected it from the first part of this episode, or any of the episode except for the final few minutes, but Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo’s (Camilla Luddington) story was absolutely my favorite in this one. I realize that sounds terrible when talking about something as awful as abuse, but I’m just really excited to see what happens next. I thought it was great how Cristina (Sandra Oh) kept protecting Alex when she found out how much he was hurting about Jo. Yeah sure, she teased him relentlessly while she was doing it, but we still saw how much she cared. Never in a million years would I have guessed that Jason (Charles Michael Davis) would get abusive with Jo. But now that he has, I can only imagine what Alex is going to do to him.
The story with Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Ethan got even more complicated in this episode and I definitely had some moments where I thought for sure they were leading us toward Owen deciding to adopt the kid. Obviously Cristina felt the same way so I’m sure she was relieved when he said he wanted her.
OMG!: Jo looking up at Alex and revealing her beaten face.
Thank you, TV gods.: Miranda breaking down in her husband’s arms. I just felt like that was something she needed to do.
Awk-ward: All the docs resorting to waiting outside of the bathroom for Miranda.
Hotness: Alex in his hoodie. Just sayin’.
Fab-u-lous: Zola in her princess gown and tiara, of course. How sweet was that?
Can. Not. Wait.: To see Alex kick Jason’s ass. I don’t care if it’s wrong, I still want to see it.
Celebuzz Meter (1-10): 8. Between Miranda breaking down and Jo showing up at Alex’s house with a black eye, this one had a lot of emotion in it for me to rate a fairly high score.
What did you think of this episode? Were you expecting things to go the way they did with Jo and Jason? What do you think Alex is going to do now?
