A judge comes in for a doctor's visit and Karev decides to take matters into his own hands. He approaches the judge, pleading Meredith and Derek's case with Zola. His efforts pay off and he gets Meredith and Derek the court hearing they were hoping for. Meredith and Derek are ecstatic, and Karev keeps mum during their celebration.

Meredith continues to work in OB as well as help Bailey with Webber's Diabetes's trial. Just as Baily is about to put her foot down and not let Meredith help with the trial, Meredith finds an important revelation from one of her mother's old journals. This is not enough to ease the tension and the two duke it out on the baseball field. Webber jumps in and separates the two of them. Later, Baily finally backs down and lets Meredith into the trial.

During the baseball game, Lexie tells Derek that she isn't happy for him. Also, Jackson realizes that Lexie is still in love with Mark.
