On cue, Meredith walks up and asks about their reckless driver, and Lexie jumps to the woman's defense before April plows ahead to ask her about the housing sitch. Mere asks if this is about Izzie's room and April gets even more confused while Lexie tries to cut that subject short, and instead brings up the chore wheel -- which of course Meredith thinks is a great idea. April then asks Meredith how things went that morning, and Lexie immediately wants to know what's going on. I have to think that was a little bit of April getting back in a subtle (some might say passive-aggressive) manner because she obviously knew it was a private subject and should have waited until she and Meredith were actually alone to question her. It seems quite like she was just trying to rub it in but on the other hand, after Lexie's treatment, I can't really blame her. When Meredith leaves, Lexie wants to know what's up but an uncomfortable April tells her to ask her sister directly.
Alex is in with Jake while the lady doctors meet with his parents outside, and Jake of course wants to know what's going on. When Alex tells him he should wait for his parents he of course guesses that the chemo failed and they want to amputate his leg. Alex immediately tries to tell him about the amazing things that they can do with prosthetics, but Jake yells at Alex that he doesn't understand that he needs his leg. A soulful guitar starts up as Jake says he can't explain it, but he'll show Alex what he means if they will let him.
As a male singer starts warbling on the soundtrack, we see Jake stretching out while the doctors and his parents watch, and then he starts doing some beautiful contemporary ballet. He's totally joyful as he dances and his parents have tears in their eyes; when he finishes his dad can't contain himself and asks, "You see that? That's my boy!" Jake just looks at them calmly and tells them to build him a leg that will let him do that, while the dumbfounded doctors stare back at him. Clearly they have not spent their summers watching So You Think You Can Dance like the rest of us, to know these crazy fluid ways in which the human body can move.
