  • A good character development episode with lots of drama

    A good character development episode. Izzie finally gains confidence, when an HIV infected woman is pregnant and wants an abortion. Initially the woman is very angry at Izzie for suggesting that she keep the baby. Izzie gains her confidence and lets the couple know that there is a 98% chance that the baby will be ok if she follows her treatment correctly. The woman is very happy and decides to have the baby.

    Rebbecca/Ava returns and tells Alex Karev that she is pregnant and he asks her if she is going to keep it or have an abortion. Not knowing how to handle the situation, he leaves for a surgery. The surgery he performs is on a baby with his heart on the outside of his body. The surgery goes well but Alex is staring at the baby and you can tell by the look in his face that he has feelings for the fact that Rebbecca/Ava is having a baby and you see him reaching out to touch her stomach in the end. Izzie gets the results back on Rebbecca/Ava and she is not really pregnant.

    The Derek/Meredith saga continues. They are working together very well, but the tension between them is still there. You can tell that they still have feelings for each other.

    Are Erica Hahn and Callie becoming a couple. Callie insists not and leaves the bar with Sloan near the end of the episode. I think they will end up a couple.

    This was an outstanding episode with a lot of character development and drama. The brain tumor guy goes in for an experimental treatment/surgery and dies on the table. The baby with the heart on the outside of his body and his mother come out of the surgery alive, but there were complications.
