10 SEASONS OF SANDRA OH
Is it a bummer that the Golden Globe winner decided to hang up Cristina’s stethoscope and leave Grey’s Anatomy? Of course it is. But, considering how versatile she is – and how acclaimed she is — we’re probably lucky that the MVP stuck around Seattle Grace/Grey-Sloan for as long as she did.
Which Grey’s character are you most thankful for?

CROWEN recap – 10 x 09 Sorry seems to be the Hardest Word
It was another episode where there was no interaction between Owen and Cristina. Aargh!! I am getting tired of this. This is the third such episode this season.
This was the Callie-centric episode where she is sued by an Olympic snowboarder named Travis Reed. Owen appeared in basically two scenes, only one of which was a speaking scene. Given that Kevin McKidd was probably busy editing the previous episode, which he had directed, I guess that his minor appearances in this episode were understandable.
However, with the exception of Arizona, Cristina, Jo and Meredith, everyone else was relegated to cameo appearances. It must have been a very light shooting schedule for most of the regular cast.
The story was told in a series of flashbacks, which focused on the actual patient case and present day scenes, which focused on the malpractice suit in the courtroom. To be honest, it was dizzying going back and forth.
The first scene in which we see Cristina takes place four months ago at a baby shower for a highly pregnant Meredith. Cristina and Callie are actually discussing the patient, who will become the plaintiff in the malpractice suit. It seems that Cristina has recommended Callie to do a hip replacement surgery on the athlete. Cristina has given Travis a glowing recommendation about Callie, who wants to know how was it that Cristina knew the snowboarder.
Cristina says that Travis was her first solo valve replacement when she was a second year resident. As usual, Greys has a problem with continuity. If one looks back at Season 6, Cristina’s first valve replacement was the woman who couldn’t decide whether she wanted a valve from a pig or a cow in the episode, “Blink.” But never mind that now. It seems that Cristina has had a new first solo valve replacement surgery, according to this new history.
Cristina says she did it six months before he came out of nowhere and won all those gold medals in the half-pipe. She says proudly that her valve is what gave him the edge. Callie grins. Cristina continues that his heart is her “Mona Lisa” so Callie can’t screw it up.
Arizona comes up and asks about the onesie decorating station. Cristina looks around and tells her that there isn’t one. Arizona complains about what kind of baby shower is this without a oneside decorating station and she already had figured out her design.
A weary Meredith comes up and asks if it was time to open the presents because she needed to sit since her feet were like sausages. Cristina guides Meredith to the couch and sits her down. Those were the good old days when Mertina was still each other’s person, a far cry from what they are today.
A couple days later (still in flashback), Cristina and Callie are walking down the corridor when the cardio fellow notes that Callie seems very happy. Callie concurs that it is true. They both giggle. The residents are running down the corridor, seemingly very stoked about something. Shane says that he got him to sign his snowboard, while Leah says she got him to sign her bra.
The “him” they are referring to is Travis, who is a total cutie. He is surrounded by staff members, who all seem to want to get a piece of him. He spots Cristina and his face lights up.
“Cristina Yang!” he yells. He comes to them and picks her up in a bear hug and lifts her off the ground. Cristina laughs like a giddy school girl, as he spins her around. I think I would giggle too if a cute guy picked me up in a bear hug.
When he finally puts her down, he tells her that she looks better and better every time he sees her. “Dump your husband and run away with me,” he says. Another reminder of an earlier time when Crowen was still together. My tears are shedding. That groaning you hear is me as my heart hurts.
Cristina reminds him that he has a girlfriend. Travis tells her that they have a deal that he can flirt with hot doctors who have had their hands inside his chest. It’s a very short list, he says. Callie laughs. Travis looks over at her and introduces himself. “You’re the ortho god?” he asks. Callie tells him her name and says she prefers goddess. He asks if she is ready to build him a new hip.

CROWEN RECAP – 10 X 08 – TWO AGAINST ONE
It was another episode where Cristina and Owen did not share a single scene, together. I hope that this is not a trend for this season. We are already tired of the Emma story line, which is making it difficult to watch. And this lack of Crowen interaction makes one less inclined to keep watching.
Kevin McKidd directed this episode, so he was briefly seen in a couple of minor scenes with only one significant scene, nearer the end with Emma, his current girlfriend. That was the extent of his story line in this episode. Cristina, on the other hand, had a much more significant story line, as she again works with her protégé, resident Shane, whom she calls Sharky. Together, they’re working on a case on a baby with heart issues. In her attempt to treat the baby, the chasm in her relationship with her former BFF, Meredith, widens into a canyon.
We first see Cristina running down the stairs with a cup of coffee in her hand. She meets up with her protégé, Shane and she asks him to give her a rundown of her patients. Thankfully, it seems that there was no drunken Halloween hook-up, as only tequila and not booty was served that night.
The patient of interest is a baby called Nathan Glazier, who has HLHS (hypoplastic left heart syndrome). It is a congenital heart defect in which the left ventricle of the heart is severely underdeveloped.
Shane says that the baby’s SATS fell to 87 and he is now in the PICU. She then asks him about Mr. Wu with the valve repair. Shane is puzzled and says there is no Mr. Wu. Cristina tells him very good and hands him her coffee. She tells him that he stayed up all night with her patients and she got a good night’s sleep, so he gets the coffee.
He asks if she is headed downstairs to Dr. Grey’s presentation of her 3D printer. Cristina begs off saying that she wants to check on the Glazier baby’s numbers. She says she will meet him in the PICU in one hour.
Our first glimpse of Owen is him with Callie. It seems that Emma has come in for an interview for a job at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Owen is trying to sell Callie on Emma’s abilities, saying that her resume speaks for itself and it is little more than a formality. Callie sees it as an opportunity to learn more about the woman Owen is dating. Owen says that it is not necessary at all.
Callie replies that she is sure that Emma is not an ax-murderer but if there is something, she will give him a heads up. Owen tells her not to do that and just be herself. They meet up with Emma, who is with Arizona. Pleasantries are exchanged and introductions are made. Callie says, “Let’s do this” and she and Emma head down the corridor, while Owen watches, as they walk away. If you were like me, you probably screamed, “Noooooooooo!!” like I did, when I first saw this scene. It’s like they are forcing Emma on us. Seriously, we don’t want to see more of Emma, we want to see less of her, until she finally disappears off our screens.
The next time we see Owen is him coming in to make an introduction at Meredith’s 3D printer presentation. There are a bunch of doctors gathered in the room to see the first demonstration of the printer. Owen starts spouting some PR line that the hospital has always valued innovation as a top priority and leading the charge is Dr Grey. “We should all follow her in pushing boundaries, and moving medicine forward, finding new ways to innovate.”
Meredith starts her presentation saying that the 3D printing will allow them to customize treatment for an individual’s specific needs. Instead of waiting for an implant, they would be able to print in-house and on-demand, she tells the doctors. “Eventually using a patient’s own cells to prevent rejection. Welcome to the age of personalized medicine.” She picks up a fork and shows them. Owen gives her a side-eye. He really didn’t expect that she would be showing a fork. Everyone looks puzzled and starts leaving. Meredith protests that they just got the printer yesterday. “Forks today, tomorrow, actual portal veins for people,” she says. Everybody remains unimpressed and continues walking out.
