On this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy (Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV), there was not one, not two, but three new potential relationships lit aflame. Plus, Grey’s managed to out-weird the weirdest medical case they’ve ever aired, which is saying a lot for a show that is now in its 14th season. Check your holster and let’s discuss.
Jackson has finally accepted the fact that he’s hella loaded and is doing things that we can all enjoy watching him do, like buying a boat and inviting all the men to join him. The shirts are off, the shoes are off, and everyone is having fun tying knots and gutting fish until Ben totally changes the subject and reveals that he’s been accepted into a firefighter training program. Like us, his fellow surgeons want to be there when he finally tells Miranda. It’s gonna be B-A-D. Also, this may have been the least smooth segue into a spin-off series in the history of TV.
As for the women, who did not play hooky and instead went to work (#TheFutureIsFemale), they were tasked with removing a gun from a patient’s vagina. What kind of applicator would a woman need to fit an entire gun through her vagina and into her cervix? Heavy flow? There are days I struggle with my Diva Cup and this woman managed to fit a firearm into her precious pocket. She must have taken some seriously deep breaths. Maybe she does yoga. Grey’s Anatomy has taken on taboo and hot button topics in the past, but this may be the strangest stance on gun control that we’ve seen.
Now, onto the hanky panky. With Nathan and Megan out of the picture and Amelia and Owen ending their marriage even though they both care about one another (what?!), it’s time to introduce some new couples to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
Amelia is-she-even-divorced-yet Shephard made it through her first surgery post-tumor and celebrated by having sex with her House-knock off mentor Tom, played by Greg Germann, who is too big an actor to not end his time on Grey’s by either dying or having sex with a regular cast member. Those are the rules of the Grey’s Anatomy guest star.
Next was Owen what-about-Teddy-aren’t-you-also-still-married Hunt, who didn’t bother meeting the doctor that diagnosed his wife’s brain tumor. If he had, he would have known that Carina was not only DeLuca’s sister, but also a lesbian who is dating Arizona. Scratch that. She was dating Arizona and looks much more like she identifies as bisexual.
This hospital has approximately zero privacy.
Poor DeLuca. He literally can’t find anyone to live with who hasn’t slept with his sister. Siblings are tough, amirite? But, things are looking up for DeLuca thanks to the introduction of six new residents. It appears that DeLuca has a history with the pretty brunette named Sam, with one resident expertly quipping “They’re both so pretty. I wonder what’s going to happen next.” I feel like she’s watched this show before.
Let’s hope DeLuca gets some love after the whole Jo debacle, because hopefully it will lead to more of this.
