Cahill returned to Grey’s Anatomy this week with another set of body snatchers in tow. Last week, we saw the “doctors in the ceiling,” this week it was a band of public image consultants seeking the new face of Seattle Grace. The image consultants focused their excessive and often inappropriate picture taking efforts on Alex and Jackson, who had emerged as the frontrunners for the Seattle Grace reboot. What’s up with Jackson and the facial hair? Not that I’m complaining, but it’s a noticeable change.
Much of the episode’s drama was driven by couples – both official and unofficial. With no ER but a new suitor, April found herself deeply unfulfilled by her work and spending more time in the ambulance with her new paramedic beau. She decided to play a bit of hooky and found herself smack dab in the middle of a trauma involving a young boy who was critically injured in a car accident. With a little help from her old flame, Jackson, the doctors banded together to aid April in a covert effort to save the kid’s life.
