‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 ep.18: The Lion Sleeps Tonight

“We have a phrase in the operating room ‘don’t pet the Lion’ it means no matter nice a tumor looks, how small it is, how perfect it margins may be. It’s still a tumor, it is still dangerous and it can bite…we’ve all heard the warning, but we’ve ignored them. We push our luck, we roll the dice. It’s human nature when we are told not to touch something, we usually do! Even if we know better. Maybe because deep down we are just asking for trouble.” – Meredith Grey (Episode Narrative)

This episode opens with Meredith, Zola, and Derek in their car and suddenly a Lion appeared on the road! Yes, a real Lion not the one coming out of Zola’s mouth.Lol! They could not contain their excitement and they told everyone they met as soon as they arrived at work. Unfortunately, everyone seemed to be having relationship issues, so they were not so interested in hearing the epic story about how a Lion came to town. Meredith even went further to dramatize the situation, she explained ‘I saw a lion looking at me like I was lunch’ when Christina questioned the story, Mer replied ‘I was staring at Simba’…haha! Classic!

And now to continue the ‘Owentina’ (yes, I just made that up…haha! Owen and Christina…Get it?) drama that has been going on for a while. In the last episode Owen confessed that he cheated on Christina, and in this episode, he expected everything to be ok. Errr…are you kidding me? He expected her to forgive him so quickly. Ummm…dude! Not so fast. Haha! The tables have turned. Last episode she was the one begging and look who’s begging now. jk! This couple needs to settle their issues quickly. Stay together or quit…Whichever it is! Dear writers, please do not drag it on for the rest of the season…it’s getting old and we need more face time with the other characters and less time for showing the really disgusting surgeries, we can use our imaginations for that. Thanks!

Bailey read my mind when she said ‘who has a lion for a pet?’ I mean c’mon who keeps a Lion in her house?! There are Cats, Dogs, Fish, and you know all kinds of Animals, but a Lion (the freaking king of the jungle). Can I say the victims of the Lion’s attack were just STUPID, like seriously you fed your arm to a lion, dude you are not Chuck Norris. Haha!  I like how Bailey reacted ‘we are going to save that crazy lady’s life just so I can tell her she’s crazy’ LOL! Speaking of more crazy stuff, Morgan the intern was getting obsessed with Alex Karev and he finally caught on *whew*. To Stop this from going further, he asked to be let off the case, but she did not get the memo.  Lol! Karev had to activated his douche mode to set things straight. Haha! The women warned him earlier, but he did not listen. Moral Lesson for Alex: For girl issues, listen to the ‘Grey’s’ ladies, they know better and they will prevent you from getting involved with a crazie. Lol! Dear writers, please make Alex Karev happy for once! How about setting him up with Kepner? Thanks!

Does this mean McSteamy (Self-proclaimed Golden Boy) and Lexie are getting back together or not?

Random: Teddy looked prettier than ever in this episode 🙂

She finally came to terms with being a widow 😦

**********

I really enjoyed this episode and there was a lot of intense moments at the ending especially when Meredith said “If you cheat on me, I’ll kill you” Yeah girl, tell him! and when Christina poured her food on Owen’s face o_o he did not see that one coming, but it’s better than the silent treatment… it looks like they are getting somewhere.

The next episode promises to be very intense according to the Preview…see for your self!

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