While he calmly teaches Cristina, Mere yells at her interns to stop looking at the monitors and to just help her find the bleed. As Melissa continues to deteriorate, Mere digs through Melissa's organs and keeps mentally chanting to herself, "Don't panic!"
Feeny wraps up his inspirational lecture by telling Cristina that she'll be the surgeon of her generation, she's not to take shit from anybody, and he wants it to be known that he helped train her.
Finally, Mere finds the bleed and is able to clamp it off. The alarm mercifully stops, and everyone in their room remembers once again to breathe. Mere then asks if anyone knows what they do now. The interns all suggest the next possible surgical steps but Mere tells them that they are all wrong: it's finally time for a 30-second dance party. She starts to dance while they all gawk at her like she's insane so she has to finally order, "Dance or you're fired." Immediately, the interns all begin to boogie and Smash starts really getting into it. Even the anesthesiologist and the scrub nurse join the party. I realized as I was writing this that we're in season nine now, and I have never known the name of the older Asian scrub nurse who appears in almost every episode. It took more work than I expected to learn that her name is Bohkee, and that the woman who plays her may be a retired nurse herself. Nurse Bohkee, forgive me for not knowing your name until this moment and please let me compliment you on your rockin' dance moves.
Since Mere's surgery started chaotically and ended well, we all know that Cristina's surgery is about to go really, really wrong, right? That's a no-brainer. But even though it was obvious that the shit was about to hit the fan, I didn't guess what was actually coming next despite a couple of pointed lines I noticed only when writing this recap. Cristina asks Feeny a question but he just stares silently down at his hands so she repeats his name. He finally starts to look up and we see that his skin has gone kind of grey and he seems confused. He drops his tools and then looks all the way up at Cristina before he falls backward with a dramatic jolt of his head. Blood starts to spew out of Katy's body in long spurts that remind me of those decorative water fountains that make it look like the water is hopping from one pool to another.
Two nurses run to Feeny and while Cristina tries to get the bleeding under control she also yells instructions of what to do for him. As she moves to the other side of the table to get a better angle on Katy's heart, they get the paddles ready and shock Feeny. Parker walks in at this moment demanding to know what's going on and why she and Feeny were even in the OR at all. Cristina yells at him not to worry about that right now (seriously) as he runs over to try and help Feeny and begins CPR. When Cristina keeps asking how he's doing, it's Parker's turn to tell her to focus on her patient. In her head, she reminds herself not to hold her breath; once she herself begins breathing again, she pleads with Feeny to do the same.
