TAKE CARE NOW

Crowen recap 10 x 19 “I’m Winning”

By Cinderoni

This is the episode where Cristina finds out that she has been nominated for the Harper Avery award. It is also a continuation of the case of the three McNeil kids with cardiac problems – a storyline that started in 10 x18. We also got a very nice Crowen surprise at the very end. This episode was written by Joan Rater and directed by Kevin McKidd.

Our first scene begins with Meredith and Cristina asleep in Cristina’s bed at Alex’s house. (Isn’t it great that Cristina has a real bed and is not sleeping on a mattress on the floor like she used to do?) Meredith has come over for a sleepover because they are awaiting the call from the Harper Avery Foundation to inform them whether Cristina has been nominated for this year’s top award. The call is usually made at 8 a.m. Eastern time (5 a.m. Seattle time). The alarm blares suddenly which awakens both women, violently.

Cristina asks for her phone so she could take the call. Meredith replies that it is charged and the ringer is on. She advises her friend to put on some lipstick. As Cristina does this, she begins to express some doubt. Meredith reassures her that Catherine Avery said that she was on the short list, noting what Cristina is doing is innovative and will lead to the actual printing of hearts and millions will be saved.

Alex and Jo rush in, eager to find out if the call came through as yet. Meredith says no and reminds them that there are five nominees and it is done alphabetically, meaning Yang will be last. Shane, Cristina’s resident assistant, calls Jo to find out if they got the call.

As Meredith chews on a fingernail, Cristina continues to express doubt that they won’t call. Then, the phone rings. They all shriek in excitement. Cristina screams that it is them and takes a big breath. Meredith advises her to be gracious and humble but she is not going to grovel. “Remember who you are. You are Cristina Yang and you are going to change the face of medicine.”

Cristina answers the phone in a very calm voice, a sharp contrast to what she is probably feeling as she gets the news that she has been nominated. Meredith takes her picture to record the moment.

We are now at the hospital, where Owen meets up with Frankie, one of the McNeil children. This is the one who received the pacemaker in the last episode. She is obviously much better as she challenges Owen to a race to her brother Link’s room, where Cristina and Arizona already are. Link is doing far worse than either of his sisters, as he lies in the bed with tubes coming out of him. Also present are Jon and Sabine McNeil and their oldest daughter, Ivy who received the heart transplant in the last episode. Ivy is eating sour cream and onion potato chips (which is my favorite flavor, by the way).  Cristina takes it away from her and scolds her for eating such an unhealthy snack.

Ivy protests that she was told that she needed to put on some weight. She watches as Cristina takes a bite out of the chips and smiles. Arizona starts the rounds by noting that Ivy is two weeks post-op transplant surgery and her indices are excellent. Cristina queries about Link and Frankie immediately launches into a synopsis about Link’s condition.

“Lincoln Mc Neil, age 9, end-stage heart failure, awaiting transplant. Status 1A. There is a family history of the disease. The cause is unknown.  Link first showed signs of cardiomyopathy two weeks ago and has deteriorated rapidly. An attempt to put in a Berlin heart failed due to something I can’t remember.”

Ivy tells her it is clotting. Frankie continues that the patient is now in ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenization). Link is currently stable, Arizona adds.

Jon asks about their status with UNO. Owen answers that Link is at the top of the list. Sabine wants to find out how long Link can last on ECMO. Cristina tells them a week. Jon says that they have to pray for a miracle. Sabine reminds him that they got one with Ivy, as she pats her oldest child’s shoulder. Cristina tells them that they are not just sitting around and waiting as they are aggressively looking at other options.

From Crowen w/ Love

Hey, Gabblers!

These days, with each new Cristina/Owen scene, our hearts ache more and more at just the mere thought of Sandra’s impending departure. Some fans have even gone as far as to show Kevin and Sandra just how much they love ‘em. And the dynamic duo made sure to return the gesture :)

I love them so very much. I’m left to wonder what will become of Owen’s character once Cristina is actually gone. Their intimacy is so real and they’ve established themselves in the hearts of many forever. Any thoughts?

Lessons Learned from Cristina Yang!

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in Blogger: GreysRcksMyWorld, Cristina Yang, GG Bloggers, Grey's Anatomy, Grey's Seasons, Sandra Oh, Season 10 | 0 comments

Hey Gabblers!

We’re creeping closer to the end of a fantastic character and as sad as this time is, there are also plenty of take-aways from the awesome Cristina Yang!

Life is too short to hold back. Cristina is blunt. If something is annoying her, she will say so. Although her unfiltered attitude trait may appear as a flaw to some, there is something very admirable about her fearless approach to life.

Everyone needs a person that they know they can depend on. Back in the early days of Grey’s Anatomy, Cristina coined the phrase, “you’re my person” referring to her best friend, Meredith Grey. Since then, their friendship has been almost unbreakable despite multiple hardships. Having a friend who you can rely on for anything is necessary to get through life’s hurdles.

What’s Next for Alex?

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in Alex Karev, Blogger: GreysRcksMyWorld, GG Bloggers, Grey's Anatomy, Grey's Seasons, Interview, Justin Chambers, Season 10 | 0 comments

Hey Gabblers!

Alex was faced with 2 realities during last week’s episode.  Do you think that he’s really considering moving to the private sector?

Here’s what Justin Chambers had to say to TV Guide about Alex!

With the mounting pressure of his student loans soon being due, Alex (Justin Chambers) might be swayed to join Dr. Butthole’s (Patrick Fabian) private practice.

“This is somebody who Alex [is] taken by what’s going on with his life,” Chambers tells TVGuide.com. “This guy is still young. He’s got cars, a nice office and a good job. What he does is easy. He could do it blindfolded. Alex thinks, ‘Wow,
maybe I could do this. I still have all these loans. I’m broke. Maybe I need to start possibly thinking of joining a private practice.’ He’s starting to see that he could maybe profit a little more than he has and also still be able to do charitable and humanitarian things that he’s been doing as a doctor.”

I really hope Karev isn’t going anywhere.  I can’t imagine the halls of GSMH without him!

Thoughts?
