Don't know what it was that made this episode as impressive as it was: there wasn't that much happening, still everything happened. It felt like Grey's Anatomy returned to its roots: it was all about the emotion not that much about the action.
And we had had it coming it has been happy day for far too long for the twisted sisters: Meredith and Christina both experience heart break and hard desicions. Though expected it was still in a way a surpise because it was all so sudden. Exepcted was also the oh-so-waited kiss between Teddy and the insurance-husband. Made me cheer, still. It was a long plotted trap I think, but by the time the little girl's mom arrived to the hospital I was gone: weeping on the sofa, hugging what ever reminded me of a safety blanket, think it was a pillow at the time. But it's okay, I like a good cry every now and then. So it was traditional Grey's but still it wasn't. I tried to grasp what made this one different: the script, the way it was shot, the acting but could'nt really find it. The way to describe it that it felt more REAL than anything else before.
