‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 Ep.17: One Step Too Far

“We are trained to be vigilant, to chase down the problem, to ask all the right questions, to find the root cause, until we know exactly what it is and we can confront it. It takes an extreme amount of caution or we can overstep ourselves. we can create problems where none exist. Our intentions are always pure…we always want to do what’s right, but we also have the drive to push boundaries, so we are in danger of taking this too far, we are told to do no harm, while we are trained to cut you open with a knife, so we do things when we should have left well enough alone, because it’s hard to admit when there’s no problem to treat, to let it alone, before we make it so much worse, before we cause some terrible damage”Meredith Grey: Episode Narrative

The episode opens with Christina and Owen’s drama; She was really freaking out that he didn’t come home, so she stormed the hospital only to find him sleeping in one of the On- Call rooms…alone! Unfortunately there was no Emily, only a tired Owen. Realizing the situation, She looked for an excuse on why she had come, and she said “I brought you some coffee” but that was a terrible excuse, because he asked for the Coffee and she replied “I forgot it”…Well someone is going crazy.

She confronted Emily about having an affair with Owen, but it turned out that wasn’t the case! When Owen got home, she asked that they work out their issues. Christina asked if he was still in love with her and he replies “I love you so much, it hurts” O_O that’s deep!!! She told him she thought he was having an affair with Emily, and he was shocked to hear this, but he went on and said “I am not cheating on you with Emily, but I did cheat on you” errr…What the heck?!!! Her instincts were right about him cheating, but she was wrong about the girl. This Couple’s got major issues! #GetItTogether

On to the other twisted sister, Derek suggested that Meredith should work with him again in neurology, but we all know what happened the last time they worked together. She was very hesitant about it, but she decided to do it for a day. The Trio (Derek, Mer, Lexi) initially started the surgery, but Derek had to step out to give a consultation to Callie. He was away for longer than expected and so the ladies continued the surgery without him which ended up causing a major damage to the patient. 😦  I was really rooting for them #GirlPower, but …oh well! Looks like Meredith won’t be returning to Neuro.

On to the lighter things…Avery’s Mom returned to perform a surgery with Dr Webber! Her game plan for the day besides the formal benefit and the surgery was to flirt with Webber, and spy on Avery with a very hot female doctor that she had brought along with her.  Avery had planned with McSteamy on how to deal with his mum when she arrived, but McSteamy changed his mind when he saw Mara (the female doctor). I am sure he thought *Finally, Avery is gonna get some, thanks to his mum* He was very happy to relieve Avery of his duties for the day! Well done Dr. Sloan, So much for taking one for the team…lol! Avery found out his mum’s real agenda for bringing the lady and at the end of the day, he hits it off with Mara! Looks like momma knows him best. lol!

Some of the ladies of Grey’s Anatomy (the ones that have known Alex for a very long time) suspect Alex and Morgan might be a thing, but he strongly denied  it…It looks like Morgan is really into it and the ladies might be right. O_O I hope she’s not another Izzy or Rebecca. Why does Alex always get the crazies?! Dear writers, Please give him a stable relationship this time…thanks!

This episode should be titled “flirting”…lol! Alex and Morgan, Emily and Owen, Catherine and Richard, Avery and Mara…haha! lol!

It was a good episode, they stepped it up. It was better than the past few episodes. What do you think? Do you think they can keep it up till the finale?

The next episode airs on April 5th…ugh! They like making us wait 😦

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thurs. at 9/8c on ABC.
