'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Fear Factor

EW's Jennifer Armstrong is back with her weekly Grey's Anatomy episode reviews, which we always appreciate. Here is what she wrote about this week's episode:


At any rate, no major happenings this week, which I suppose makes sense after the two-hour extravaganza of George's death last episode. However, us having known that was coming, it's feeling a little…eh, snoozy right now. I could use a little scandale, though I don't know what precisely that would be. I'd like to be surprised. It's part of the fun.

Not that there was zero fun in this ep. Cristina-as-pediatric-surgeon was pretty hilarious from the get-go. She strategized to keep her job in the merger with Mercy West by sucking up, as they say, to Arizona — and Cristina can barely interact warmly with adult humans, much less children. ''It's like the whole body is your canvas,'' she gushed to Arizona. ''The fact that it's a small canvas makes it even more challenging.… I would love to witness your artistry.'' She even went so far as to claim, ''I love kids!'' when pressed on the issue. Genius.

...

The point is, really: Izzie's wig. Let's discuss. I mean, Katherine Heigl even looks hot with her super-short, peach-fuzz, cancer regrowth, so it's hard to truly judge. And the wig kinda looks like Meredith hair, but neater. And it's so wrong it's almost right. But maybe not as wrong as all the characters are acting like it is. I don't know. This might be the most emotional hot-point of this episode. What do you think? One thing's for sure: I'm not sure it's red, like she thinks it is. ''She looks like a Stepford Wife,'' Cristina whispered to Meredith. A-ha! That's it! That is so exactly what was wrong with it. Thank you, as always, Cristina.

...

Cristina's venture into pediatrics, in fact, felt like the most remotely compelling plotline this week, and that's just because she had to wear a fuzzy bear on her doctor-whites' lapel. And because Cristina said things about Arizona like, ''She's merger proof. She keeps little kids alive. No one likes a dead kid.'' So true. I like the general idea of everyone at Seattle Grace struggling a bit to keep their jobs. Do we not all relate these days? Or are we going to say something snarky here instead about how the Grey's writers aren't struggling quite enough? About, perhaps, the fact that no one seemed to still be suffering the slightest bit of repercussions from George's death, aside from the odd throwaway line (most of which were jokes)? What do we think, Grey-zies? (And what do we think of the term of endearment Grey-zies?)

...

I was much more interested in the fleeting fact that Ellen Pompeo, being shot pretty much from the midsection up due to her real-life pregnancy, looked radiant. And Cristina eating the last chocolate pudding, the one her pediatrics patient really wanted, was perfect. So was Hunt's total denial of Cristina's plea for him to save her job: ''You have to tell the chief you need me. That George was your guy, but he died, so you need a new guy, and that's me.''

...

But look at that, miraculously, all the major characters were safe. And Arizona and Callie were officially GFs, so Callie can't move to Portland. And then Cristina was asking, as all of the Seattle Grace couples inexplicably decided to play softball at night, ''How can I drink beer when all my friends just got fired?'' Not sure, Cristina — but, honestly, as much as I love a surprise, I'm glad neither she, nor any of our core surgeons, got fired.
