This week's Grey's Anatomy was all about the need to be loved and the importance of forgiveness.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is trying to reach out to her mother and spend more time with her now that Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr.) is backing off to focus on his marriage. Her mother accuses Meredith of driving Dr. Webber away. She blames her for her failed love life and tells her "I should never have had a kid." Feeling completely dejected, Meredith heads off to work and finds herself assisting Addison (Kate Walsh) with an emergency C- section. The catch is that the pregnant woman is her half-sister Molly, seen in a previous episode when Meredith's father, Thatch, and step-mother, Susan (Mare Winningham) reappeared after years of no contact. While Meredith has never felt loved or wanted by her own mother, she sees that Molly had a very different experience.
