Episode Recap: "All By Myself"

In this episode of Grey's Anatomy, the Chief announces the winner of the solo surgery award; Callie develops a new crush on an intern and Sadie drops a bomb on Lexie.


After weeks of speculation, the Chief is finally ready to reveal the name of the resident who has been picked to embark on their first solo surgery. There's just one catch, the winner who was chosen unanimously by the attendings has been disqualified by the Chief. Yep, had Yang only spoken up sooner about the intern's secret society, she would have been the one flying solo in the OR this week, but that little mistake cost her big time. Instead, Yang was awarded the honor of choosing her replacement.


While Cristina struggled with her decision, the returning Dr. Dixon advised her to keep her emotions out of the decision-making process, while Dr. Hunt advised her to go with her gut. In the end, Cristina chose Alex because "he made the best case."


Meanwhile, there were plenty of other things going on at Seattle Grace to keep everyone else occupied.


This week, two sisters landed in the ER after a stint of text-messaging at the wheel caused an accident. A sibling argument ensued as the doctors examined the girls and realized the eldest girl, Holly, was suffering from more than just bumps and bruises. The kicker here is that the younger sister, Emma, didn't realize at the time how serious the situation was and shouted the dreaded words, "I hope you die," as they wheeled Holly away for further tests. It was a moment that said it all. From that point on we knew Holly wasn't going to be around long enough to earn a lecture from her parents on the evils of cell phone use in the car. Meanwhile, Emma struggled to find a way to take back the final words she had thrown at Holly. At this point, it was Meredith who stepped in and helped Emma work through her grief by reminding her that regardless of what had happened, her sister still loved her. In retrospect, it was impressive to see the usually detached Meredith so emotionally connected to the situation. I think Derek would have been proud.
