This week on Grey's Anatomy, we get a look at how some of our favorite docs feel about their parents when Izzie's mom surfaces by surprise and Mer and Lexie's dad returns with an important agenda. Meanwhile, Callie struggles with her own parental issues after her father cuts her off.
CRICKET" AND HER MOM
This week, the whole Seattle Grace gang assembles in Izzie's room to help perform a taste test in an effort to solidify Mer/Der's wedding menu. Meanwhile, its Derek's turn to try out wedding gear in the form of a fashion show not unlike the one Meredith gave last week. All I can say is, who cares what's on the menu when you have Dr. Shepherd to feast your eyes on? De-licious! And once again, it's nice to see all of the docs appear on-screen together in a light-hearted ensemble piece.
However, it's not long before the docs disperse and Robbie Stevens (Sharon Lawrence) pops through the door with her psychic friends on speed dial. Mama Stevens proves to be just as energetic and chatty as Izzie (aka "Cricket"), and it turns out they both have a thing for Alex who Robbie deems as "young and yummy."
It takes a while for Robbie to get a full grasp on just how serious her daughter's condition has become and when she does, it's heartbreaking to see her reaction. Seriously, the analogy Izzie gave her regarding the tumor "grammy" had on her thyroid was just too much, but Sharon Lawrence did an awesome (Emmy worthy) job of portraying her character's overwhelming shock and grief.
Knowing that the truth was too much for her mom to take, Izzie then designed a back-up plan with Bailey to cover up any future bad news (i.e. her scan results) and send her mom on her way. Bailey sticks to the plan and reports back to Robbie that "the cancer is practically gone," when the truth is, Izzie still has cancer mets and needs surgery. So, while Robbie takes comfort in the "good" news, Bailey assumes a different kind of motherly role for Izzie by helping to keep her fighting spirits up.
