This episode delivered on dramatic moments, but was a bit of a downer on the whole. Callie and Arizona's end scene was good, as was Derek and Meredith's. I loved the collection of things removed from patients! I'm glad Teddy is finally making progress - her anger is getting old. What did you think of the episode?
