Grey's Anatomy: 8×08 – Heart-Shaped Box

I know I say this every week but man I love Grey’s Anatomy this season!

Derek/Meredith being happy and positive about Zola!

The whole heart-in-a-box storyline with Cristina. The funny scenes with the Chief/Cristina and Chief/Avery.

GEORGE’S MUM! I have been looking forward to this episode ever since I heard they were bringing her back. Nice move writers – it’s about time we think about the fact that George actually existed. I know it’s boring for the characters to dwell in the past, not to mention the fact it isolates viewers who may not have watched the series from the beginning, but it’s about damn time that George was mentioned!

George’s Mum/Meredith <3. “George said you were the best”. I love how happy George’s Mum is to see Meredith. It’s really endearing.

George’s Mum/Callie+Arizona. “Dr Robbins”. “Dr Torrez”. Heee! I really liked Callie in this episode! Turns out my favourite Callie moments are basically all the times she’s awkward about coming out to people!

And the George’s Mum/Callie moment later when Callie tells her about liking women and being married and having a baby and Mama O’Malley doesn’t care about all of that, she just wants to see photos of the baby! That moment almost made me cry! It was just so touching!

Bailey/Meredith and the George thing. The thing I love the most about this is how they tied in George’s death with Meredith/trial thing and how Bailey explained why she’s so mad at Meredith. That whole scene where they talk about George’s death and how George was Bailey’s favourite – top notch writing there! And that scene before where Meredith argues that she’s good enough to do this surgery on George’s Mum using Zola’s custody as an example and then when Bailey advises her on what to wear ❤ ❤ <3.  I am happy with this resolution to the Bailey/Meredith rift!

Teddy/Henry ❤ ❤ ❤ <3!!!!  Wow, he slipped that one in there about going back to medical school!!!!  I was almost as shocked as Teddy was!

The author/Lexie. Loved it! Loved seeing Lexie get so into the book and good call making the time-travelling love story be a parallel to her own love life situation. Lexie generally was adorable in this episode.

Hee, Arizona loves Alex but she won’t tell him to his face. She wants him to get the Peds fellowship and think he’s amazing <3.

Alex’s little bit about thinking of George made him think of Izzie ❤ ❤ <3. So glad we at least got to talk a bit about George and Izzie this episode. I really hated the way Alex spoke about George earlier but I thought his explanation about how thinking of George makes him think of Izzie was pretty sweet <3.

HENRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THE PROMO FOR NEXT WEEK’S EPISODE ISN’T EVEN ABOUT HENRY. IT’S ABOUT ANOTHER EPIC STORYLINE. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS TO HENRY?!?!
