A plethora of fat jokes, and not very good ones, throughout this show.
The episode focused on an overweight patient's struggle to do the right thing and Derek facing possible charges over how he handled a case a while back. Webber needs to be the Chief again, it's just the role James Pickens was meant to play. Derek is better as the surgeon full-time.
The episode was not bad, but nothing really stood out for me, and that has been the problem with a lot of recent installments of this show. No "OMG" moments, as Gossip Girl calls them, and just nothing to get people to talk about the program at the water coolers.
In this episode of Greys Anatomy, the following happens. When a 700-pound patient is brought into the hospital, we learn that he has a flesh eating bug and needs surgery. By some miracle he survives the surgery although it was a close call. Cristina has to deal with a patients little girl, whilst the mother goes in for surgery. Cristina seems to form a bond with the little girl. But the mother dies. And so Cristina breaks down in the arms of Owen, confessing that she misses her father. Derek has a wrongful death deposition, which seems to really get to him. A patient flirts with Callie and when she goes home she tells Arizona about it. And so they decide to end their relationship. Alex signs the divorce papers that Izzie sent to him, and celebrates moving on by kissing Lexie. Overall a really interesting episode. The little girl in it was amazing; she had me in tears a few times. But proving that this show is more real than most, is the fact that they let the mother with a little girl die and yet saved the 700-pound man who we all thought was going to die.
