CROWEN RECAP – 10 X 10 Somebody That I Used to Know
This was an episode where both Cristina and Owen were heavily featured but not much with each other. They had a total of one scene together. That is a slight improvement from the three episodes where they did not share a single scene. With such a large cast, one can expect that certain cast members have had minor appearances in some episodes. Not Cristina, who has prominently appeared in all 10 episodes this season, including the Callie-centric episode. I am going to expect that is going to continue since they would want to use the talents of Sandra Oh as much as possible before she leaves at the end of the season. Now on to the episode.
When first we see Owen, he is with Emma, who has graduated from baking banana bread to muffins. They are in a conference room. Apparently, Emma has come to Grey Sloan Memorial to work on her grant proposal. I don’t know why she couldn’t do that at Seattle Presbyterian. It is just trading one hospital conference room for another. They are looking for any excuse to try and bring her across to Grey Sloan for the day.
Owen tells her that if she needs anything, she should just call him. Emma replies that she doesn’t need anything; she just needs to read everything that was ever written on mediastinal teratomas, crank out a grant proposal and all she needs is quiet. Owen chuckles. He says he can’t promise too much quiet because she did say he could come visit. Emma says it would be the best part of the day. They share a peck on the lips.
Outside of the office leaning against the nurses’ station are Callie and April, who can see clearly through the blinds of the office, so they can observe Owen and Emma. Cristina comes up and welcomes Callie back, who replies that it beats the hell out of a courtroom. Cristina notices Owen and Emma in the office but doesn’t say anything.
Callie says that Emma brought muffins. April adds that it’s her day off and she’s doing homework. Cristina says incredulously, “In a hospital?” (Yeah, my reaction, too.) Callie replies that maybe Emma should go outside and see the world. As they flash on Cristina’s face, the pain is evident on her face and she walks off. April whispers that she thinks it is kind of sweet. Callie agrees saying that it is adorable. They giggle. (Shut up, girls.)
Cristina apparently goes off to the PICU where Alex is with baby Nathan, Cristina’s HLHS patient from Episode 8 – the baby with the congenital heart defect. In that episode, Cristina and Shane had taken possession of Meredith’s 3D printer to try and print a bio-compatible conduit to help him.
Alex is now on the case with Cristina and he says that they have been treating Nathan with diuretics and beta blockers but he still has a lot of edema. Cristina says he will rally once they put in the graft, noting that Nathan has been in the PICU for three weeks.
Alex asks if they are done with all of the test prints. Cristina replies that they finished last night and Shane was now printing out the real one now. She then digresses and tells Alex that Emma was in the hospital with muffins. Alex answers if she wants to get rid of her. (Thank you, Alex for volunteering to do that. We know you have Cristina’s back).
Cristina says no but she was glad that Owen’s getting laid. Actually, she really doesn’t seem happy about it because the words were hard to come out of her mouth. She continues that everyone should get laid. “I should be getting laid. My work suffers when I’m not. It’s bad for humanity.”
Alex doesn’t want to talk sex with Cristina so he tells her to make up back with Meredith so she could handle that. Cristina tells him that he is being a priss and whether he doesn’t talk about sex with his guy friends about who got the best rack in the shack. Alex admits, “Maybe.”
