    Grey's Anatomy Recap: Readiness Is All.

    Thursday, May 09 2013
    Meredith has a scare, Owen talks adoption, and Jason is beaten.

    At home, Alex ices Jo's eyes as she cries and tells him her boyfriend, Jason, hit her for lying about who she was. Alex assures her she's safe, grabs his keys, and runs out.

    Outside the ER, Owen tells April they need to prepare - the weather report is calling for a huge storm. They go inside where he calls all staff together to brief them - all elective surgeries are to be cancelled. Alex pulls Derek from the crowd. Bailey volunteers to do charts.

    In the corridor, Ben tells Richard that Bailey is convinced she'll kill anyone she touches.

    Alex takes Derek to a hospital room where a patient that's been beaten is hooked up to machines. He asks Derek to help him - it's Jason Meyers. Derek asks who did this to him. Alex pleads with Derek to make sure he doesn't die.

    Arizona and Dr. Boswell chat and laugh as they walk up the hallway together. Boswell asks Arizona for coffee. Arizona agrees to meet her in the cafeteria. Later, they scrub in for surgery together and bond over doctor talk. While operating, Boswell chats with Jackson and Arizona about the infamous 'Grey-Sloan Seven'. When Boswell steps out, Jackson says she makes him feel confident, like Sloan did. He wishes she could stick around. Arizona agrees.


    Owen and Ethan stand by his dad's bedside. Owen talks to Ethan about foster care. Ethan shares his concerns. Ethan's grandmother enters. Owen steps out. Christina stops him to discuss taking Ethan's father off life support. Owen snaps that it's too soon.

    Owen sees Meredith in the elevator and asks her about adoption. Owen spots April wheeling in a serious trauma - a man with rebar sticking out of him. Owen wants to take it, but she argues it's just the case she needs for her boards. He relents.

    Later, they are about to use an electric grinder on the rebar when Ben and Owen burst in - there's oxygen in the room. The sparks from the grinder would blow up the room! They devise a plan to shut off the oxygen during sawing. Meredith is sent out because she's pregnant. They successfully grind the rebar and Owen sends a furious April out to do storm preparation.

    Outside the room, Meredith complains to Derek. He tells her about Karev bringing in his friend, Jason. Meredith panics. "He's not his friend."


    Derek operates on Jason's brain bleed in the OR. He complains to his intern that she's weird.

    In the staff room, Meredith and Christina are lecturing Alex for beating up Jason. He insists he didn't do it. Jo appears. She says Alex just found Jason - she did it. Alex tells Jo to go home and keep quiet. He swears Mer and Christina to secrecy. Stephanie appears. They tell her she never saw Jo.

    Meredith follows Jo to the stairwell and warns her not to let Alex take the fall for her. Jo reassures her. After, Mer starts back upstairs and tumbles down to the bottom.

    At the nurses' station, Bailey has Shane working with her on the charts when Richard appears. He asks Bailey to help with the rebar patient. She refuses.


    Christina finds Derek post-surgery. She has an x-ray that shows Ethan's father has a clot in his brain that they missed. Christina goes to Ethan's grandmother to ask if she wants them to operate. She wants Owen's opinion. Christina says it's her decision. Nancy agrees.

    During the surgery, Derek gets word that Meredith fell. He leaves Brooks to finish. Christina, observing, goes ballistic.

    Derek checks in on Meredith, who is fine and complaining that she should have been in the exploding OR and this wouldn't have happened.


    April complains to Jackson that Owen is keeping her from surgeries. She gets sent out to take a trauma from the ambulance and the patient, and everyone around, starts dancing to music. It's a flash mob for April, set up by Matthew, who proposes in front of the whole crowd. April accepts and he spins her around. She's thrilled...except for a split second when she spots Jackson.

    Later, the storm has begun as Alex and Meredith discuss Jo in the dark hallway. Brooks appears and says Jason is awake and is asking for the police. Alex goes to see Jason and tells him his friends own the hospital - and they don't like men who hit women. He warns that if he talks, all people are going to hear is that he hit a woman. It will follow him wherever he goes. Derek overhears. He's not impressed.

    Elsewhere in the hospital, Derek tells Christina she didn't miss anything else with Ethan's father. She asks, "Then why isn't he awake?"

    At the nurses' station, Richard gets tough with Bailey. He tells her she's not a file clerk so if she won't do surgery, she should get out.

    Meredith sees Owen coming out of a room and tells him about adopting Zola - she looked at her, and she was her daughter. They discuss his feelings for Ethan - he's decided to adopt him. Christina appears. She shows him Ethan's father is awake and is fine. Owen snaps that he wants him transferred. Later, Meredith tells Christina that Owen wanted to adopt Ethan.

    Matthew comes in from ER and Jackson congratulates him. He says he had Owen keep April out of surgeries all day so he could pull off the proposal. Nearby, Bailey signs her and Ross onto the surgery board.

    The power goes out as Arizona goes into the staff room with Boswell. They kiss. Arizona pulls away. "I can't do this."

    Alex arrives home and argues with Jo in the candlelit house because she could have gone to jail. She worries he thinks she's horrible. Alex admits he probably would have killed the guy himself. They are exchanging an intense look when a tree comes through the front window into the room.

    Still at the hospital, Meredith tells Derek her water just broke.

    Candi's Comments:

    Wow! What a fabulous episode. Up and down like a rollercoaster ride! Loved the intensity surrounding Alex and Jo, and the flash mob proposal was amazing - I was looking for Jackson the whole time - anyone else? My heart was broken for Owen who just basically lost another child. The storm is creating the perfect atmosphere for a dramatic finale, especially with Mer going into labor! Arizona and Boswell - don't know what to make of that. Last, I was so relieved Bailey put her name on the surgery board! Can't wait for part II next week.

    Candace I agree w/ you on everything! The one problem I have is Arizona cheating on Callie. Callie has been very supportive and patient with Arizona. Arizona is self-righteous most of the time telling Callie what to do and when to do it. I hope Callie finds out soon. I don't know what Callie will do now that Mark is not around. I hope Mer and Derek don't lose their baby. I don't think Mer can handle losing another baby. I was hoping April and Jackson was going to get back together. I was looking for Jackson the whole time during the proposal also. As for Alex and Jo I wish Izzie was back to steal Alex's heart again.

    Arizona is a two timing self centered sorry azz B!tch!!! I have never liked her & not I hope she looses her other leg...or something! She will surely loose Calli & the baby...after all the baby is Calli's & Mark's so AZ you sorry azz looser...YOU CAN LOOSE IT ALL!!!!

    Please don't let the McDreamy baby die!!! We have waited too long for this little one!!!

    Good for Richard...shocking Bailey back to her self!!!

    Owen needs to get over it...Christina saved the little boy's dad...he can't fault her for that! That little guy wanted his daddy more than Owen wanted him!!!!

    Jackson was there at proposal with a smile for April, so I think he has moved on.

    Good thing Richard used 'tough love' to snap Bailey out of her funk. Sometimes that's what it takes.

    I'm surprised that Arizona succumbed to cheating on Callie. I actually thought that Callie would do it before Arizona would.

    I have never been a huge "Alex" fan, but I am loving him now! And he is so crazy about Jo, more than I ever saw him about Izzy. When are they going to get together???

    Posted by WhySoSerious2 at Saturday, May 11 2013 04:20 PM

    Seriously?!!! Is this what it comes down to? Not being able to walk away from temptation?? I mean I can understand Arizona, if Callie was indiferent, cruel and unloving and treated Arizona with 0 respect, then I can see someone snaking them selves on a person in turmoil. But Callie has NOT done anything wrong, so BOOO for the writers!

    The Flash Mob proposal, that was the most endearing scene for April. Not even Jackson could have topped that, right? (Cricket sounds)

    Tough Love for Bailey, about dang time!

    NXT EPISODE: C-section for McDreamy's Baby................all I can say "writters, don't botch it up!" It is bad enough that u took our Lil Grey & McSteamy, Izzie & Alex.....and let's not forget our McDreamy Baby........grrrrr Is all I can Say.

    Jo, Jo, Jo *smh* I was blaming Alex for going berserk on your bf, but it seems that, Jo can kick butt! I say "Girl Power!".....but u should have called 911 as soon as you defended yourself and got to safety.
