Finally, after weeks of speculation, there's a kiss! Not
the kiss that is supposed to shock us all, that's supposed to come next weekbut an intriguing kiss nonetheless! I'm talking of course about Callie and Erica in the elevator. While the motivation for the lip-lock could obviously be attributed to Erica's desire to rile up Mark (who is "turning over a new leaf"), one could also argue that it might have had more meaning for one, or both of the ladies involved. Hopefully, next week will shed more light on that one.
Meanwhile, Derek and Meredith found themselves working with a new patient, Greta (
Regina Taylor), who appeared to be suffering from a romantic delusion involving a guy she allegedly met on a cruise. Greta's only request was that they hold off on the surgery until he could arrive, which prompted a huge debate between Derek and Meredith: do they wait for this "phantom love," and sacrifice precious time, or do they move ahead anyway? While Derek wanted to give Greta more time to hold onto the dream, Meredith was ready to get cracking. I found myself thinking the scenario was reminiscent of
Flight Plan, with Jodie Foster---would this missing mystery person ever show up? Thankfully, he did, but he was too late. Greta ended up in what Derek branded a fatal coma. Could this really mean her fairytale is over?
On another disturbing note, Cristina continued to dwell in an angry place tonight. She had no interest in joining in on the landmark surgery that occurred tonight and she was eager to belittle just about anyone who crossed her path. Between taunting George about his lacking future without Burke's direction and telling Lexie that she needs to "have some fire and be a force of nature," it was pretty clear that the words coming out of her mouth were actually misguided accusations aimed at herself. Personally, I can't wait for Cristina to get out of this funk because I much prefer the witty Cristina to the purely nasty one.
Tonight, Alex finally found out the truth about Ava/Rebecca and he continued to stay by her side anyway. And did I see that wrong, or was Alex rummaging through Izzie's drawers tonight to find something for Rebecca to wear? Had I been Izzie I think I would have had a problem walking into that scenario, without having been asked permission first. At any rate, I do feel bad that Rebecca seems to be suffering from something far worse than what I had originally suspected (a severe case of pre-meditated manipulation).
Best monologue of the night goes to Lexie, when she confronted Mer in the bathroom. She not only hit on every one of Mer's big issues in life ("our dad abandoned you; your mom was mean; you can't let Derek love you and it all really sucks"), but she also managed to end her point with a solid finish, "I had this fantasy of my big sister and you have failed on every occasion to live up to that fantasybut I still love you, whether you are capable of loving me or not." Well done. Lexie's other monologue, aimed at Cristina, was also quite noteworthy. I have to say, Lexie has grown to be quite an addition to this show.
On a lighter note, one of my favorite exchanges tonight was between Meredith and Cristina, who both agreed they were in a "dark place." I also enjoyed watching George race around the hospital tonight, come to Tuck's rescue when his parents were fighting and ultimately see him end the day with a compliment from the Chief and the Chief's mentor, Walter (
As for Rose and Derek, well, I can't say I like the pairing, but I do feel bad for Rose. She seems to be a genuinely nice person caught up with what we could call the right guy at the wrong time. But I still want Derek with Meredith, so I'm really hoping Rose finds someone elsesoon.
So, what did you all think of the Erica/Callie kiss. Was it all in fun, or secretly meaningful? What will become of Alex and Ava now that everyone knows there is no baby? Ponder those thoughts as we head into next week and the season finale!
