Grey's Anatomy is still throwing surpises, even in its seventh season.
Who'd have thought Meredith and Derek's wedding would be such a minimal affair, reduced to a post-it for over a year and then twenty minutes at City Hall?
Who'd have thought after the tense confrontations between Callie and her dad regarding her sexuality, it turns out to be her mother who is behind most of her obstacles?
Who'd have thought Karev would actually have a serious point regarding law / ethics / impact when discussing Meredith's actions? (Although I sincerely doubt he wouldn't have done something similar back in the day for Izzie...)
Who'd have thought a speech from Bailey would steal the show? Oh wait... I guess that's not a surprise! Her words to Callie rung so true and are at the heart of what this episode centred on. You make your life what it is, and your faith / beliefs are with YOU, and where you are - not confined to bricks and concrete (e.g. church)or an imposed set of conformities from those you are supposed to be able to look up to and trust (e.g. parents). Besides, Bailey got married, legally, to a guy, in a church - and look how well that turned out!
All in all, a good episode. Now bring on that season finale... I want some controversy!
