Poor old Meredith Grey – she hasn’t exactly had a lot of luck since coming to work at Seattle Grace hospital. She almost got blown up by a bomb, drowns, almost gets shot, survives a plane crash, watches her sister die, watches her husband die – and this is to name but a few tragic events – and now she gets beaten up by a patient and ends up in hospital for weeks. That’s enough to put anyone off becoming a surgeon in America!
However, this is TV and whilst I do feel like Meredith must be the unluckiest doctor ever, !angstyMeredith does make for good drama. This episode was really interesting and cleverly filmed/written for maximum impact. Plus it made for some wonderful Alex/Meredith scenes. I only wish that they mentioned something in passing about Cristina coming to visit Meredith.
