This week's episode of Grey's Anatomy revolved mostly around Dr. Karev. He and Dr. Kepner find themselves on the service of the new peds attending, Dr. Stark. Dr. Stark is played by John Cage from Ally McBeal. Turns out Dr. Stark is a bit of an ass and tries to steal Karev's genius idea for an infant's liver repair.
At the close of the episode we learn that Karev was in Iowa over the weekend with his family because his schizophrenic brother had to be committed. While I have sympathy for Dr. Karev and his never ending shit storm, I have to say, the way he treats people - friends and patients - still makes me insane.
Also this episode Cristina suffered from what I would call a prolonged manic episode. She is doing everything and anything to avoid talking about her decision to quit, including hastily chopping off Callie's hair and furnishing her entire new house.
Lastly, this hour Dr. Avery finally had a crack up. He's slowly been losing his mojo, but when his fistula patient died, he completely broke down. I can't decide where the writers are going with this. Are they going to write him out of the show? Will he quit and open a random business with Cristina?
In previews for next week Cristina becomes a bartender (and gets frisky with patron!) and Callie and Mark rekindle their old flame. Can't. Wait.
