The episode begins by showing how the series couples start the morning. Alex and Jo seem to have made up after their fight in the previous episode. Owen asks Emma to move in to a new place with him. Meredith helps Derek pick out a tie for his interview with the government officials and reveals that she’s holding out on him. Callie gave Arizona a new ring to symbolize their fresh start.

CROWEN RECAP – 10 x 12 Get Up, Stand Up
This is the first episode in a long time that I actually think I don’t mind writing the recap. It is no secret that I have been terribly bitter by the whole Crowen storyline, especially in Sandra’s last season. The episode was mainly about April and Matthew’s wedding but there was so much other things going on at the same time. Owen and Cristina interacted mainly on a professional basis but there was a significant moment later on in the episode.
The episode opens with Cristina at a press conference for her Nathan Glazier surgery. The flashes from the cameras are blinding and she looks very uncomfortable. On either side of her are Shane and Owen. (Kinda weird since she has slept with both of them. Though I do wonder why Shane is there because he is a second year resident and the assisting surgeon was actually Alex). Meredith is also there at the press conference.
Owen introduces her to the press. She thanks him and immediately starts to fumble. She does not seem as strong and confident as she usually is. In fact, she sounds extremely cautious. We will find out later why she is acting this way. Cristina says the procedure is so relatively untried that the associated risks are unusually high but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t try. Meredith seems to be looking a bit resentful.
Cristina closes her folder and Owen asks if she is okay. She says yes and continues in the same halting voice. She says that fortunately, the patient is responding well for now. His vitals are stable and the hope is that they will continue. “And if it does, I am cautiously optimistic that we can call the procedure a success,” she says.
Shane butts in and grabs the microphone, saying that home run is a better word. “Dr Yang hit a home run. Thanks to her, baby Nathan is thriving this morning.” Meredith has a quizzical look on her face, while Owen and Cristina gave Shane the death glare. Clapping ensues from the press corps. As usual, this is a case of Shane overstepping his boundaries. He doesn’t seem to remember that he is just a second year resident and therefore, should have said nothing. His cockiness is bound to get him into trouble, as we saw later in the episode.
After the conference, we see Owen, Cristina and Shane coming out of the room. Shane is particularly ebullient as he says that it went pretty well. Cristina is still steamed from him butting in at the press conference and immediately, turns on him. She tells him he is off her service and he has got to be over his hours. She tells him to go home and take a day off.
Shane is flabbergasted, saying “What?” Cristina answers him that he doesn’t know to keep his mouth shut. Shane argues that the press needed to hear that it was extraordinary. Cristina cuts him off and says that she is not comfortable speaking for her, especially about this case.
Owen defends Shane, saying that he said what needed to be said. He tells Cristina that she was not comfortable at all and she was tanking in there. In the meantime, Shane is tapping on his tablet, trying to prove that he is not over his hours. He says that he is only at 68 hours for the week. We find out later that that he has been fudging on his hours, so he can continue to work.
Owen leaves, telling her that JAMA wants an interview in Conference Room C and it should be short. Cristina then tells Ross that she is worried about him and that he has been going too fast lately. She says that she is not the only one who has noticed it. Shane is ready to find out who has been talking smack about him. He asks if he has screwed up. Cristina tells him that his work has been great. Shane touches her arm and says that he thinks what he knows this is and that she needs to work off some tension. (Get your arm off her, Shane. Don’t you dare touch her). She shrugs off his arm and tells him that they were not going to do that anymore. (And this is the point that I fall on my knees and give praise. Hallelujah! No more scenes of Shane and Cristina in the on-call room).Read More
S10E12 – Get Up, Stand Up
“Failure is inevitability. Every scientist was told so. Over and over. The ones we remember, the ones who changed our lives. The Curie’s, the Salk’s, the Barnard’s. They’re the ones who wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.”
Very rarely do weddings in Shondaland go completely as planned without some type of crisis, misfortune, or disruption and the Season 10 winter finale is no exception to the rule, leaving the viewer’s hanging on the edge of their couch cushions, eagerly hoping the next two months fly by! Oh Shondaland, how you torture us so!
As if one’s wedding day isn’t somewhat stressful enough, April’s newly appointed bridesmaids don’t help the matter when she ends up spending most of the day hunting them down, (comically) forcing them to put their personal matters aside to focus on her and her big day! Naturally this takes place after she witnesses Meredith and Cristina brutally battle it out, bashing one another for the faults they’ve recently acquired, having sworn they’d avoid in the past. Meredith has become progressively irritated with Cristina’s recent acclaims for the successful surgery she performed on the infant, to which she has no clue exactly how she saved the infant’s life. Cristina, meanwhile, points out that Meredith isn’t the surgeon she once knew, having chosen her family over her career. The two continue bickering back and forth and before storming out of the room from one another, Meredith accuses Cristina of “becoming the thing you worship”, to which Cristina responds, “And you’ve become the thing we laughed at.” Ouch.
Arizona and Callie appear to be making some headway on repairing their marriage but over time throughout the episode, we see a brittle Arizona become more and more uneasy with Callie’s growing excitement over her plans for her and Derek’s brain mapping program to which Callie is hoping Arizona could potentially benefit from. In a moment of vulnerability, Arizona breaks down, (inconveniently enough in front of April on her wedding day) confessing to April she cheated on Callie because someone else was attracted to her, regardless of her amputated leg. Not long into April’s (again comical) attempts at consoling Arizona, Meredith and Cristina barge in, picking up their argument where they left off. Turns out the two admit to one another the reason why they’re growing apart is the same reason they became twisted sisters in the first place: competition! Before the two can call a truce, April goes Bridezilla on them all, telling them this is HER day and instead of fighting, crying and focusing on THEIR personal business, they should be focusing on HER instead. Way to go, April! You tell them whose boss…. er…. Bride!!
Meanwhile, Alex continues to work on making peace with his estranged father but not after a few shouting matches first. When Jimmy admits he did his best to be there for his family, Alex shouted back that “his best was worthless” and that because of Jimmy’s alcoholism and abandonment, Alex had to be the man of the house. Later on, Alex visits Jimmy again and in a round-about way, thanked him for leaving their family because ultimately, they all turned out for the better because of it, especially Alex. Soon after, Alex and Jo meet up before April’s wedding to which Alex tells Jo they are all the family they’ll ever need, etc… smooch, kiss, embrace, etc… Hey, at least one couple on the show is getting a pleasant ending… so far!
Back at the hospital, Shane is playing Mr. I Can Do It All by fudging the amount of hours he logs per week to up the chances of him becoming Dr. of the Year. (OK, not really, but you get what I mean.) Cristina warns Shane to take a break in light of getting burnt out but Shane disregards Cristina’s advice, clearly becoming more and more self-destructive than one could imagine. His assertive, arrogant attitude lands him in a difficult predicament when he goes rogue and attempts performing surgery on an ailing Jimmy by himself. Leah calls for help and when Richard arrives, Shane has flash backs to the super storm and admits he was at fault for Brooks’ death. Richard takes over and attempts to save Jimmy’s life and the last we see of Shane, he’s standing in an elevator; covered in Jimmy’s blood looking like he’s ready to join the cast of One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.Read More
JOLEX REVIEW 10.11 “MAN ON THE MOON”
Of our favorite blossoming couple, the first we see is Jo giving Leah sympathetic glances, and likely counting her lucky stars that her attending boyfriend is not married and trying to get back together with his wife. We then discover that she’s allergic to wool, which is either the truth, or a fast-thinking lie to make Stephanie feel better about her choosing to watch Ross and Yang’s surgery.
Next we see Jo getting a mysterious page from a nurse. Upon arrival, she discovers that the man who has been asking for her is none other than Jimmy Evans, returned to Grey-Sloan Memorial for the promised help Jo gave him months ago. I love how Jimmy say’s ‘Hi hun’ to her. It feels very paternal and genuine, and I like to pretend that he knows that she is Alex’s girlfriend, which we know he doesn’t yet. Jo, who likely still has the memory of Alex throwing a glass and exclaiming how much worse his father’s presence made him feel after eight years, is adamant that Jimmy not try to detox at the hospital. However, Jimmy makes the decision for her when he complains of nausea and collapses right there and has a seizure.
Insert Alex who is a part of baby Nathan’s team and arrives with Cristina to discuss the procedure one last time with his worries parents. This is where they find out that Ross has made some executive decisions of his own and decided to okay a live streaming session during the surgery. Alex and Cristina share incredulous looks together (More Alex and Cristina, please) and he clearly takes her side when it comes to this. He even gives Ross a look at the end of the scene which shows he clearly doesn’t approve.
Owen tells Jo to admit Jimmy and treat him with methadone, of which he refuses because he’s trying to get clean. Jo is still trying to be a good girlfriend and suggests that they move him to a rehab facility, but Owen reminds her that she is a doctor and to start acting like one. I have to admire Jimmy’s determination to not accept any kind of drug. It’s clear that he wants to get better, and the only catalyst I can see to his decision is his last interaction with Alex at the bar.
Next Jo nervously approaches Alex to tell him that his dad has been admitted. “I have to tell you something that you’re not going to want to hear.” “Then don’t tell me.” If only it was that easy. Alex’s knee-jerk reaction to hearing that Jimmy is back is to kick him out, and he goes to do just that, barging into the room. It’s at that moment that Jimmy looks at him weakly and say’s “Hey son, how you doing?” Alex’s expression is unreadable, but after this brief moment of shock he overcomes it and begins to pull out the monitoring wires attached to his father, trying hard not to listen as Jimmy tries to explain himself. As we already knew, he only recognized Alex after he saw him pissed off, like he was when he was fifteen and told him he wished he was dead. Ouch.
Jimmy claims that he’s been trying to get it right ever since the bar, but Alex is still determined not to help the man who made his life Hell. But Jo is. Because she’s a doctor. She tells him it’s okay and that he can leave, which he does after a moment’s pause. Jo is relieved. Jimmy looks torn.
Alex is in the OR with Ross and Cristina while they insert Nathan’s conduit. I like that even though this wasn’t his first choice of approach to the case, he’s still encouraging and professional in the work setting. After the procedure (where the conduit was found to be slightly too large), Alex tries to assure the parents that it could still work, but he is unable to say more than that, causing Cristina to call him out for his lack of support. This next moment surprises me a little, because up until this past season we haven’t really seen Alex reaching out to the twisted sisters for support, or anyone really to share details of his private life. He admits to her that he’s had a rough couple of days, and I’m curious of how far he would have elaborated until Cristina interrupted him to ask for reassurance and support regarding the conduit. Alex says he’s not sure if it will work, but he hopes so.Read More
