    Is it me, or does sometimes Arizona sound like Mer sometimes? Her voice and the language??
    Loved Alex in Peds - hope they keep him there.

    I thought it was a great episode last night. I loved Alex working with Arizona in pediatrics. It reminds me of how good he was when he worked there with Addison a few season ago. I liked the Bailey/Meredith surgery story with the woman waking up during surgery (yeah, would have had a heart attack if that were me ) and I enjoyed Callie and Mark's conversations. I also loved Cristina's talk to Owen about how Burke took pieces of her personality away from her time after time until she wasn't Cristina Yang anymore (probably because I just got done watching the episodes around her and Burke's wedding and it's fresh in my head) and the scenes of her with the burns on her behind were hilarious. I'm excited to see what's coming next.

    Let's bump this thread back up again. The men's skating wasn't shown until 10, so I was able to watch.

    Thought the Callie part was stupid. Not the surgery end, but having her be so terrified of talking. A little tentative was one thing, but puking is another. While I'm glad Justin Chambers played a part, them hooking up in the end was obnoxious. Did Callie live in the hospital so it was easier to bed hop?

    The Bailey part was good. Interesting to see how she found her spine.

    The Richard/Ellis part was the best. When the attending said, "You wouldn't have even been allowed in this program 10 years ago," I thought, "Oh no he didn't." The reality is someone might have said something like that. As is Grey's way, they fudged dates a bit to make an AIDS storyline work (didn't Mer read for Ellis' diary and the date was like 1977), but it was still powerful stuff. It really showed the lives of these characters and the horrible, ugly story of how AIDS was initially approached by doctors. Loved the two actors who played Ellis and Richard. Good choices -- especially her.

    I just watched. I did enjoy Richard and Bailey's flashbacks, agree that Callie's was ugh.
    Mandy - Love that she is now Miranda.
    Also love that they are giving Bailey a romance, she is so cute, and the guy seems nice.
    (Private Practice is not good, and wish Taye Diggs would move to Seattle and hook up with Bailey. He is so gorgeous, one of the reasons I still watch PP sometimes. Wish she had kissed him).

    Private Practice just isn't good. The only interesting characters are Addison and Sam. Except for the wife blowing up the house episode, Dell hasn't had anything to do all season. He's literally an extra. Pete pouts. Violet is crazy and self-indulgent. Naomi seems to just wander the halls. Cooper and Charlotte are ridiculous. The plot line meanders. And why didn't Addison bitch-slap her mother for basically saying her kids ruined her life. Send Addison and Sam to Seattle. Let the rest of the cast return to auditioning.

    I feel like anytime Grey's tries to progress with the plot, it flunks; when it does stuff like this episode or the April Kepner whodunnit episode, it rocks

    Would love that to happen. Taye Diggs should be a major star, and so hot.
    Addison was better on Grey's.

    mkats - good point about how Greys's is better with this type of episode.

    Why isn't Sarah Paulson (young Ellis) a bigger name? Everytime she's on a show, she steals it. Love her.

    However, if they have the Chief come back UNDER Derek, I'm going to vomit. I just can't stand Derek this year, and him as chief...

    I thought I was the only one. It's like he has this smugness about him that makes him -worthy to me.

    As always, I'm bumping up this thread even though I really don't have much to say about the episode.

    Teddy is sort of a useless character.
    ABC must have either invested a lot of money in that batting set or the opposite, it's super cheap. Since when is that girls' night?

    I agree. I think it's him feeling out the role of chief though. Derek has always had a bit of a "holier than thou" vibe (with Meredith, with Sloan, with a lot of people), but now he has a title to prove it. I am sure at some point there will be an episode taking his ego down a peg!

    I don't usually complain about this show, as I'm a bit more tolerant of the writing on it than some other things. However, there was a huge issue for me last night. When they revealed that the patient was Harper Avery he asked for Ellis Grey to be his doctor. While he wouldn't necessarily know that Ellis has been dead for several years (or how ever long it is on the show), he would surely know that she had long since left the hospital. Didn't she leave with Meredith when Mere was still just a little girl.

    After all, this man was supposed to be someone who kept up with the top surgeons (knowing Richard's research topics and Derek's experimental treatments), but he wasn't aware that Ellis was no longer at the hospital that she had done her residency at?

    That question took me out of the moment.

    That is a good question that I feel the writers have never really answered. They've played with it to suit the situation.

    In the first or second season that nurse came to Seattle Grace to die and she told Meredith she was Ellis Gray's scrub nurse for 18 years.

    They did say she left after her residency, but did she return to Seattle at some point?
    Was that house empty for over 20 years?
    Who lived there and when?
    Why did she wind up in Seattle when she developed Alzheimer's?

    In one episode Richard made some reference to Ellis working with the United Nations, but that was never really detailed.

    If she left over 25 years before, why would Harper Avery ask for her?

    I thought Ellis had been working at Seattle Grace til a few years (say 2-5) before Mer showed up for her residency. Then she went away 2-5 years ago for the UN or some cover, but was really being treated for Alzheimer's. That has been my impression.
    Mer's father had been out of Mer's life for over 20 years.
    This is all based on things from the begining of the show, so could be hazy.

    It's hazy because they've morphed the story several times.

    At first, she left a few years before. Really did go work for the UN. Wound up back in Seattle when she developed Alzheimers.

    Then the story seemed to say she left Seattle for the East Coast immediately after residency never to return.

    Perpetual creative license.

    That's the one I've pretty much gone with, as my memory and interpretation have always been that she left after Richard refused to leave his wife. I couldn't imagine her coming back to work at the same location he was at.

    That seems to be the way the story has gone the past few years, but then why did she still have a house. Did the house really sit empty for over 20 years? Why did she wind up back in Seattle when she developed Alzheimer's? All very fluid. Add to that, why did Richard have an 18-year drinking problem if it wasn't fueled by Ellis' continuing presence in the hospital? It makes sense he'd have had a bad time for a year or two after she left, but why was it ongoing?
