[Warning: The beneath comprises MAJOR spoilers for Gray’s Anatomy Season 18, Episode 7, “Immediately Was a Fairytale.”]
The excellent news is that Maggie is again in Seattle, having returned from her time along with her father. (Looks as if Kelly McCreary is again from her maternity depart!) She and Winston (Anthony Hill) spend virtually your complete day within the on-call room, and what that means.
Anyway, Winston was supposed to hitch Bailey (Chandra Wilson) at a medical pupil conference, as was Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), who’s caught in Minnesota.
However Bailey isn’t fully stranded on the conference: Dr. Michelle Lin (Lynn Chen), the plastics surgeon we met earlier within the season, helps her pitch Gray Sloan to potential residents. Hassle is, all the opposite hospitals on the conference are bribing the med college students with pizza and massages and laptops and different swag. And right here’s Bailey, pondering a hospital ought to stand on its deserves and never on its goodie baggage.
In the meantime, Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Hyperlink (Chris Carmack) each have the time off. Hyperlink is in a funk about Amelia (Caterina Scorsone), so Jo makes him and Scout go along with her and Luna to the park, the place they see a touring theater troupe performing Rapunzel. However Jeremy, the actor taking part in the prince, falls from Rapunzel’s tower halfway by means of the efficiency, and it’s undoubtedly not a part of the present. Jo and Hyperlink dash into motion, with Hyperlink splinting Jeremy’s leg and Jo performing CPR. They stabilize Jeremy and take him to Gray Sloan, the place Hyperlink scrubs in with Teddy (Kim Raver), and the 2 of them efficiently function on Jeremy.
Later, as Jo and Hyperlink depart the hospital to return to her place, Hyperlink confesses that he completely had a crush on Jo again within the day. He mentions this in passing, not noticing the bewildered look on Jo’s face. Looks as if she’s simply now realizing she has emotions for Hyperlink, too.
And over dinner that night time, Jo wonders aloud if a fairytale ending is feasible for them—if, say, all of the trials and tribulations they’ve each been by means of are simply the prologue to a love story. She’s clearly speaking concerning the two of them, however Hyperlink doesn’t catch on. As an alternative, he’s pondering solely about Amelia. He realizes that he doesn’t want marriage to be pleased with Amelia. And he rushes off to name her, leaving Jo trying crestfallen on the dinner desk.
However Amelia might need one other prospect! The majority of this week’s episode takes place in Minnesota, the place David (Peter Gallagher) is rising pissed off with Mer’s lack of progress fixing Parkinson’s. And he has motive to be impatient: He fell at house and sprained his hand, and he did so in entrance of his granddaughter. However his impatience is translating to snippiness with Meredith, so Amelia proposes that Mer get out of the lab for a bit. And that signifies that Amelia has numerous one-on-one time with Kai (E.R. Fightmaster), the scientist for whom she appears to have the hots.
Amelia and Kai get to know one another higher this week, with Kai asking Amelia how she obtained into neurosurgery. Amelia says nobody has ever requested her that earlier than—everybody else has simply assumed that she simply idolized her brother. Kai asks who Amelia’s brother is, and Amelia replies, “You simply grew to become my favourite particular person.”
Finally, Amelia and Kai make a breakthrough. After realizing that their motor-injector was warming the cells they had been injecting into the (faux) brains, they notice they’ll chill the needle of the injector. And that results in a promising end result: 92% visibility, 2 p.c greater than what the FDA requires.
And so Amelia heads again to Seattle, bidding Kai farewell in a parking storage. They get awfully shut, and so they keep intense eye contact, however they are saying their goodbyes and half methods with nary a hug.
As for Mer, she doesn’t precisely get the time off there in Minnesota. Nick (Scott Speedman) ropes her right into a partial adrenalectomy on a affected person named Brian. Mer fortunately scrubs in, nevertheless it’s solely when Brian is open on the desk does Nick confess that Brian was his childhood buddy and kidney donor. Particularly with that backstory, Nick may be very a lot involved that the surgical procedure goes to hurt Brian’s remaining kidney.
Mer removes Brian’s tumor efficiently, although, with assist from a talented resident named Jordan Wright. Through the surgical procedure, Jordan tells Mer that it’s an honor to work along with her, particularly with Mer’s medical legacy. Mer thanks him, agreeing that her mom was one of many greats. However Jordan was really speaking about Bailey, whose work he discovered on-line.
And so, on the finish of the episode, Mer flies again to Seattle—and he or she brings Jordan along with her. Mer introduces Jordan to Bailey, saying that his work is great. So it looks as if Gray Sloan didn’t want a conference to seek out new expertise—and we would have a brand new recurring Gray’s character!
