When she walks out into the waiting area she is glum and exhausted, so Will immediately thinks the worst. But it turns out Katy is fine, and Cristina tells him she's got a long life ahead of her. Will gives her a giant hug of thanks, and then turns to all of their non-nutjob friends to hug and celebrate. Cristina turns away and in slow-mo she walks back through the door with Feeny's advice to breathe and not be crass floating in her head.
A ton of the hospital staff are hanging around in the hallway and they all watch as a gurney is wheeled past with a sheet covering Feeny's body. Still in slow-motion, Parker sees Cristina and tries to shake her hand -- which is just kind of gross of him after everything he did -- but she brushes past him as she continues to replay Feeny's teachings about how she should stand up and be great.
She sits in the locker room as she contemplates his warning that she won't find any friends there since no one there can really understand her. As she gets dressed his voice continues that if she's lucky, when she's old one day she'll find a young doctor who cares for nothing other than medicine and she can train that doc like he trained her. But until then, she should just read a good book. She remembers him saying she has greatness in her. "Don't disappoint." And while Feeny knew her really well in some ways, he never realized that Cristina still needs her Person in her life in addition to her career.
Once Mere is out of the OR she goes in search of Zola and panics when there is no sign of her in the lounge. But when she rounds the corner she finds Owen holding her and beaming with pleasure. He reports that they read Goodnight Moon and he learned that he's terrible at pattycake. In other words, please, everyone, remember that Owen loves and is great with kids and that this could still be an issue if Cristina were to somehow decide to make her way back to the Northwest. Just as Mere reaches for Zola, Kate calls to her that Melissa is up and asking for her. Owen tells her it's fine to go and so she runs off with no hesitation this time. Zola doesn't seem the worse for wear -- she and Uncle Owen just start doing ridiculously cute high-fives.
When she's not crushed under a tire, Melissa looks very much like a young Jodie Foster and she and Mere smile at each other as Smash introduces them. Melissa can't do much talking but she manages to say that she remembers that Mere was there for her when she was trapped. She then seems to doubt the memory and asks if Meredith really was there. Mere tells her that she was, but is having a hard time keeping the smile on her face since this is bringing her back too much to Lexie.
