From one overly bloody patient to another -- everyone is still frantically scooping and suctioning blood when Richard walks in to say that they found Melissa's parents and they are on their way. He hears Callie warn Meredith that they've already replaced Melissa's blood four times over (!) and suggests that they pack the wounds and let her body rest since she probably can't take much more. In case we hadn't yet gotten the similarities, he adds that she was crushed by, "two tons of twisted metal. That's a lot of trauma for the body." Mere retorts that she's fully aware of just how much trauma that is. The interns are all getting a little uncomfortable as Mere claims that she's going to fix the patient rather than just do damage control, and there might as well be a neon sign hanging from the ceiling with a flashing arrow pointing at Meredith that says OVERCOMPENSATING FOR DEAD SISTER. Richard finally tells her to stop and when she doesn't, orders everyone to take their hands off the patient. Everyone but Mere complies but when he calls her name again, she finally stops and tells the interns calmly to pack the patient up.
Once Katy's surgery is over Parker and Feeny retire to the scrub room to yell at each other; Feeny reminds Parker that the aneurysm could have blown at any moment no matter who was operating while Parker condescendingly says that he's only butting in at all because he's trying to help. When Feeny turns down this generous offer of assistance, Parker gets his panties in a bunch and orders Feeny to surrender his medical license, claiming he's a danger to patients. And when Feeny shockingly doesn't agree to that, Parker puts him on probation so that he'll have to sign off on every move Feeny makes. Feeny, finally out of retorts, walks out and smacks the door as he leaves, surely picturing Parker's smug face as he does so. Parker then turns to a silent Cristina and implores her to talk to Feeny.
After they have Melissa packed up, Mere explains to Duchess Catherine that the next 24 hours are crucial so they'll have to keep a close eye on the patient. Richard then enters and asks for a moment, and since Mere chooses to keep writing in the chart the others all file out to give them some privacy. Richard offers to take lead on the case to which Mere actually acts surprised; she's so deep in her own head right now that I think that surprise might be genuine. Richard is concerned that she might be taking this too personally because of the similarities to Lexie and her demise but Meredith assures him that her emotions are totally not getting in the way. She then excuses herself to go check on Melissa and gives Richard what is supposed to be a reassuring smile as she leaves.
