Episode Recap: "Haunt You Everyday"
Why should Izzie direct all of her questions to Bailey now? "Because she's been sleeping with my husband," Callie announced, in that oh-so-matter-of-fact tone that bubbled up unexpectedly. And just like that, this episode was off and running!
So, tonight was Halloween, and as we all know, freaky things tend to happen on this holiday - and weird happenings were not in short supply at Seattle Grace. First, there was the guy who sliced off his finger with a chainsaw (accidentally), and then there was the guy who tried to slice off his foot (on purpose). I truly thought the latter was just an elaborate trick to scare Bailey, but obviously it wasn't. Then, of course, there was Meredith being haunted by the ashes of her mother. Fortunately, Mer finally found a way to peacefully part with her mother's remains, by returning them to the OR (via the OR sink).
As far as tricks go, though, I think my favorite was the one Derek played on Mark, when he paid the young boy in search of new ears to approach Mark and call him "Daddy." Talk about a priceless moment!
Another great moment was seeing Alex kiss Rebecca for the first time! It was nice to see Alex in a more loving mode tonight, but did he "chicken out" again by letting Rebecca slip away once more? Hopefully she'll understand when she finds out that Alex only left her because Norm had a stroke, and his prognosis wasn't looking good. Fortunately, Norm did survive,
and he had an epiphany: He was not meant to be a surgeon (insert sigh of relief here)!
I was also pleased to see the camaraderie between Callie and Cristina tonight, as they managed to find some shared humor in their recently failed romantic relationships. Their ability to outdo each other in this category nearly reduced them to comedic tears, and more than likely will be the foundation for a solid friendship in weeks to come. Especially considering how hard Cristina was on Izzie tonight for sleeping with a married man.
Another highlight for me was the pro bono surgery Meredith organized and the conversation she had with Mark as they prepared for the procedure. Meredith confessed to the steamier-than-usual doctor that she had never gone trick-or-treating before, because her mother thought it "was rude to knock on people's doors and beg for food." He then gave her the sweetest look and said, "The apple fell pretty far from the tree, huh?"
And tonight we learned that George isn't the only one with marital problems, as Bailey seems to be struggling with a few issues of her own. Something tells me we'll be seeing more of this in the future.
I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm curious to know what everyone else out there thought. Especially on the topic of Gizzie! Is George's marriage really over now? Will Rebecca leave her husband for Alex? Post your thoughts and theories here!
