Meredith Gives Riggs Dating Advice

Meredith was in a mood all episode, mostly because Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson) blew his chance with Megan Hunt (Bridget Regan) because he was in love with Meredith.

“My feelings for Riggs are way past anger. It’s more like rage bordering personal violence,” Meredith said.

She finally confronted him at the tail-end of the episode to say she was a bit jealous he got the chance she never had with Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey).

“You got a gift that I will never get and you’re wasting it,” Meredith said. “Show her that you love her. Remind her of why she fell in love with you.”

Karev and Jo are back in full-force. The two hooked up in the elevator and flirted over the operating table every chance they got. “I missed you last night,” Jo flirtatiously said.

After the two operated on a boy who injured himself asking a girl to homecoming, Jo decided to “HoCo Pro” Karev too by waiting outside the hospital with a paper that read “Homecoming.”

“I’m asking you to come back home,” Jo said. Finally these two made up.
