Grey's Anatomy Recap: "Have You Seen Me Lately" Season 8, Episode 15

The special Grey's Anatomy-Private Practice crossover failed to disappoint: Amelia ventured to Seattle Grace hoping her brother Derek could save Erica, the baby mama of Cooper's son Mason. Meanwhile, Meredith found a new mentor, Cristina and Owen tried therapy, and Jackson stood up to the Nazi.

Let's take a look at the top moments from the crossover:

Amelia and Erica's Everest: When Amelia broaches the subject of Derek doing this surgery, he shuts her down because he thinks that not only is she just trying to get back on her feet after rehab, but she won't be able to handle it if Erica dies during the surgery. She explains that just because she's an addict does not make her fragile. Derek decides to work with her on the surgery simulation — they have to remove the tumor within 90 seconds — which turns out to be successful. Once Erica arrives at Seattle Grace, she's forced to decide in less than 24 hours whether she wants to undergo the operation or not. She uses the time to finally admit to her son that she is sick, which upset him since he was the only one left out of the loop. Despite a few hiccups, the surgery is successful. Derek and Amelia celebrate with a sweet embrace. Aww, Shepherd siblings!

Cristina and Owen head to couples therapy: This isn't the first time the duo has been in therapy. Cristina once went following the hospital shooting, and another time Owen received help to deal with his PTSD from the war. This is the first time they've been in there together, though and it wasn't an easy journey for them. Cristina did make valid points: Owen held her hand during the abortion, and then four months later accused her of killing their child in front of all their friends. Plus: She's always been clear on not wanting kids, which Owen should respect. On the other hand, he says that if the twisted sisters do everything together, why doesn't she have a baby when Mer already does. Owen also argues that he should be Cristina's person instead of Meredith.

The Chief, puppet master: In an old gangster-style movie moment, the "puppet master" Chief enlists Callie to take Meredith under her wing. Callie insists that Meredith prove herself during a case where a man's hand got stuck in a meat grinder. Callie has Meredith make all the decisions, which includes choosing to remove one of his toes to use as a replacement thumb. Though the hand looks like something out of Frankenstein's lab, Meredith wins Callie over.

Alex's bedside manner: In order to study for his oral medical boards during work, Alex enlists an intern, Morgan, to help him, though he doesn't even know her name. In the middle of studying, she passes out, suffering a heart attack that puts her baby — Surprise! She's pregnant! — in danger. The doctors are forced to take the baby out early, and Alex realizes he cared more about making sure the baby was OK than checking in on Morgan. Arizona identifies with Alex, noting that she also used to be a shark during residency, but advises him that he'll need to balance that with actually caring about the patients.

Jackson shuts down the Nazi: When one of Bailey's former cancer patients returns for a surgery to regain the use of her arms, Bailey decides to micromanage Jackson and Eric's surgery in order to make sure her former patient will live. "Respectfully, doctors, I told you so," she tells the docs when they underestimate the amount of damage done inside the patient. Jackson gets back at Bailey by asking her to leave the OR, with Sloan backing him, saying if she doesn't leave, he'll have her removed. Fortunately, the patient turns out OK.
