We’re nonetheless cooking with gasoline, and it was a enjoyable hour from begin to end.

The interns proceed to be the saving grace of the collection, and Meredith and Nick making up was additionally a spotlight of Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 Episode 2.

It was one other stable hour, from loopy medical mysteries to snarky characters and relationship drama.

They’re hanging the fitting steadiness with the brand new and outdated characters, and every little thing blends collectively properly, displaying that even with a forged this huge, one which has grown, it is attainable to even issues out in thrilling methods.

Each character and dynamic throughout the hour was important ultimately or one other and utilized properly. Even the extra questionable ones slot in with the storytelling in some capability.

For instance, Owen and Teddy are a multitude. Should you needed to minimize something out to date, all fingers level to them with the aftermath of Owen’s actions.

It is downright foolish the place they’re now, with the fixed bickering and the way we have glossed over a lot of Owen’s storyline solely to land him right here. Nonetheless, as ludicrous as their presence is as of late, one can not deny that Kevin McKidd and Kim Raver have nice comedic chops.

Owen: I can not work with Teddy.
Mer: Its been a day.
Owen: It has been every week!

So lots of their scenes have been foolish and even annoying, however each of their deliveries have been so rattling humorous that I discovered myself begrudgingly laughing anyway.

Teddy was a ride-or-die for Owen after they first went on the run, however now she’s bitter, indignant, resentful, and hitting the liquor an excessive amount of from the sounds of it. Understandably, Owen does not take care of the fixed badgering and reminders of how he screwed up their lives.

And Teddy can not stand what her husband did and the way it affected them or how they’re mainly broke proper now. And he or she will not let him neglect it for a second.

Issues solely obtained worse when Teddy was the one who needed to monitor Owen for the day, and she or he’s taken over as Chief of Trauma as a result of he could not run it anymore.

They have been a headache collectively, and my coronary heart went out to Mika, who solely wished to be taught and do issues with out feeling like a baby watching her mother and father struggle nonstop.

However when she did get to do issues, it was improbable, and Owen actually is a good mentor. He was in his component, guiding her by way of saving Harold. If we needed to put up with some bickering to get us to Owen working alongside Nick and serving to to mentor the interns, so be it.

By the tip of the hour, I wished Teddy and Winston to fulfill up at Joe’s for drinks, served up by a really enlightened Helm, and bitch about their spouses. They deserved it.

Winston was catching it at work with Maggie, and he had each proper to be irritated by her. She had this manner of undermining him and subconsciously leaning into their energy dynamic and exploiting the hierarchy.

I haven’t got time to pee, and also you simply mentioned so many phrases.


Winston took it one step additional when he reminded Maggie that he is solely good due to mentors like her and that as an alternative of banking on him to do every little thing she desired since she trusted him, she wanted to truly concentrate on mentoring and instructing new medical doctors to be nice too.

It was a mic-drop second for Winston. Whereas it felt like they obtained over their tiff too simply, given how genuinely irritated he was, at the least there’s proof that these two aren’t annoyingly good as a pairing and may have some battle or one thing of curiosity.

No less than within the romance division, issues have thawed between Mer and Nick, they usually may very well be on observe with each other now that they’ve talked, and Mer bared her coronary heart to this good-looking man with good hair.

It is wonderful how straightforward it’s to fall again in love with this pairing. I do not know what they did to them to convey it again to that attraction that they had after they first met, nevertheless it’s so good.

Blue: Why is everybody married to one another?
Mika: As a result of medical doctors haven’t any lives and no time to fulfill regular individuals.

Nick was working wonders with this system however wasn’t letting Meredith off the hook. And you’ll’t blame him since she went six months with out calling or speaking to him. He makes her put herself on the market and get out of her personal approach, and that is good for her.

My coronary heart swelled a bit when she advised him she was nonetheless in love with him. And it was all he wanted to place issues apart. The 2 of them selecting to help Zola at her presentation for his or her first day trip once more was appropriate since Zola is one other one that genuinely wished her mom comfortable and knew Nick gave that to her.

However now that it appears Mer and Nick are good, and Webber has apologized to Nick, and so forth, Mer can direct her consideration to Zola.

It was completely heartbreaking that she could not even make it by way of her presentation about Ellis with out moving into Alzheimer’s and concluding that someday she’ll lose Mer and Maggie to it as properly.

Maggie: I am sorry I tousled your schedule.
Winston: At this time or the final six months?

It is a real concern for an clever woman who loves medication to have about her household. Now, it makes you surprise how lengthy Zola’s had that kind of hysteria. We already understand how laborious a time she had when Mer was in her coma.

If this units issues up for Mer to focus extra on her household, then it could be good storytelling for her character, particularly in her remaining installments of the season.

And on the household entrance, Amelia is directing a lot of her focus to Lucas, and she or he does not see the way it might have an effect on how others understand him at work.

Understandably, he already is aware of that the others have considered him as a screwup, so he does not have to take care of them figuring out about his connection to Amelia and Mer, too. Though, one thing tells me that it will come out sooner moderately than later, particularly with Addison returning to the collection.

Stunning to nobody, a pair interns have some questionable residing preparations, so hopefully, we’ll get a pleasant setup of them transferring in collectively.

Because it stands, we will anticipate Lucas, Mika, and Simone as potential roommates. However let’s not get forward of ourselves.

Amelia tried her greatest to persuade Luca to maneuver into the Casa de Gray, and I questioned if there was room for the man. That home stays stuffed to the brim with individuals and is tremendous busy.

The gesture is good, and the children would possible respect a enjoyable cousin round, nevertheless it’s in all probability not in Lucas’ greatest curiosity to make {that a} common factor.

Harold, did you stick my cellphone up your ass?


Sadly, Amelia staying on Lucas’ case now has Blue pondering that Lucas and Amelia are sleeping collectively. Such a basic Gray’s misunderstanding!

Blue is so humorous, and outdoors of Levi, who’s a Sass King, he had the very best and funniest traces of the hour, to my utter delight. However we nonetheless really want to see Blue in motion. Thus far, he is glorious for conceited, witty traces, however we’ve not seen him with all palms on deck within the thick of it.

However the ladies have been slaying it with their circumstances. Mika did exceptionally properly with Owen and Howard, the man who shoved his spouse’s cellphone up his ass.

And Simone, that woman is a runner; she’s a observe star! Each time you flip round, she’s working round someplace, however she’s at all times the one who comes by way of with the saves.

It is good that Mer reminded her that she would mess up sooner or later, and as a lot as I like to see Simone win, I can not await that humbling expertise for her.

She and Jules rising nearer was candy, too. It is endearing that Mer is pushing them to lean onto one another as a result of she is aware of from expertise how invaluable her relationships have been with the opposite members of M.A.G.I.C. she was within the trenches with whereas arising.

Simone and Jules had their palms full with that medical thriller case, and it was riveting till the tip. I used to be afraid that one thing horrible occurred due to that leftover meals, and I wasn’t ready to be taught what it was whereas presently consuming leftovers.

Meningococcal made sense for a university child caught in shut quarters who did not have a vaccination. It is simply unhappy that he needed to get his leg amputated.

I’ve to go discover an attending who can supervise my attending to allow them to supervise me studying nothing.


However Gray’s medical mysteries are a lot enjoyable to look at unfold, and this was no exception. They’ve actually introduced the enjoyable again into Gray’s, and it is thrilling.

Extra Notes:

  • Poor Hyperlink was not flirting with Jules, however she had him all tongue-tied. I do not hate no matter is going on with these two.

  • Scandal’s Artemis Pendabi, Trendy Household’s Nolan Gould, the Marla Gibbs — they have been hitting the guest-star jackpot.

  • Teddy’s ranty monologue to Webber, whereas she dragged Owen by each final auburn follicle on his head had me screeching.

  • Shoutout to Chase for being his roommate’s emotional help white boy. Their friendship sounded completely treasured.

  • Why did not Harold simply throw his spouse’s cellphone out the window? Why did he shove it up his personal ass? How did he even do this? Hopefully, with a lot of lube. And we thought the Gungina incident was unhealthy!

  • Levi is so rattling sassy and enjoyable this season; he has the very best traces and is a without end temper.

  • Helm lastly getting over Meredith is development. Good for her. Bailey and Jo hanging out on mommy dates are the cutest; they make nice pals.

  • The resident program and the instructing — all of it sounds so wholesome now.
