Tempting fate. Two patients’ shocking deaths caused the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to make life-changing decisions. Read on for the five shocking moments from Grey’s Anatomy’s Thursday, October 27, episode:
Bailey Fought With — and for — Karev
After Catherine (Debbie Allen) told Bailey (Chandra Wilson) to fire Karev (Justin Chambers) following his arrest, Bailey spent the episode debating what the right choice was. Karev didn’t help his case, as he picked fights with Bailey over their patient — a pregnant woman with cancer who chose her baby’s life over her own. As Karev challenged Bailey’s assessment, Bailey snapped: “When I tell you to know your place, know your damn place.” #ChiefBailey
Ultimately, after seeing the impact Karev had on the patient, she decided to let him keep his job.
DeLuca Lost His Trust in Jo
In the beginning of the episode, new-friends-but-probably-more DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) caught up over coffee. She told him that she and Karev weren’t talking anymore, explaining, “It’s a little like he and I never existed.” We’re not sure of much these days when it comes to Karev and Jo, but one thing that we know is that their relationship definitely still exists.
Later, DeLuca was walking down the hall and just so happened to see Jo and Karev intensely talking. (Seriously, when do these guys find time for surgery?) When Jo ran into DeLuca later in the day, she asked him about his court date, to which he replied, “We shouldn’t talk about the case anymore.” When she insisted that she and Karev were just talking about the patient they were treating, and that she wasn’t being a “double agent,” DeLuca told her, “You pick the bad guy, Jo.” And then to really make her really feel guilty, he added, “You deserve better.” Hot doctor who gives inspiring speeches? Anyone else getting McDreamy (or McSteamy — or even McKiwi) vibes here?
Leah and Arizona Have Tension
Doctors at Grey Sloan may come and go, but awkward tension with old hookups lasts forever. Leah (Tessa Ferrer) returned, causing a mixed reaction among the hospital staff, but the most awkward encounter happened when Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) introduced Leah to Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), which would have been nice except for the fact that they have hooked up before. Spoiler: It didn’t end well. After uncomfortable hallway small talk, the two parted ways on a seemingly amicable note, which we’re sure will definitely (read: absolutely never) last.
Amelia Revealed She Doesn’t Want Kids — and Confided in Alex
After a negative pregnancy test revealed Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) weren’t expecting a baby, Amelia avoided her husband at work. Later, after losing a child patient in the operating room, Amelia broke down in front of Karev, and revealed what happened to her late child, a son who was born without a brain. “I haven’t told Owen about it — I don’t think I can,” she said. “When that stick was negative, Owen’s heart broke, and I was so relieved.”
Bailey Will Make a Tough Choice
After telling Catherine that she would not be firing Karev, Catherine said that was fine — that Karev wasn’t the problem. Catherine brought old records for the hospital’s surgeons, including Karev, Meredith, April and Leah, saying they had all been given second chances after screwing up. She noted it wasn’t the fault of the surgeons, but of the way they had been teaching residents, and there would have to be a change. “The residency program is your husband’s department,” Bailey said, to which Catherine replied, “I know it is.”
