Derek has been in surgery but runs out of the OR to answer a page from Meredith, thinking something happened to Zola. Meredith immediately assures him that the baby is fine, and it's about her. Derek, though, has no time for the frivolous concerns of the woman who he has known for years, been through numerous giant ups and down with, and whom he just finally married so that they could have a child together. He tries to walk away so Meredith has to announce that she got fired. Derek finally looks at his wife and helpfully sneers, "What did you think was going to happen?" This is win-win for Derek: the person who ruined his trial is adequately punished while he still gets to play the poor, wronged husband with an immoral wife. He walks off in a huff like he does so perfectly. Remember those five minutes last season when I finally stopped hating Derek? I miss those minutes. Now he's back to being the Brandon Walsh of this show -- insufferably condescending and only seeing things in black and white.
The doctors tell Danny they are going to talk him through everything and he seems game, but it seems like maybe they haven't told him exactly what it is that they are going to be talking him through just yet. He opens the box of supplies that they have sent down and when he sees a box full of scalpels and saws, he gets it and understandably starts to panic. Owen stays calm and assures him he can do it, finally telling him point blank that the only way to get them both up to the surface is if he amputates Susannah's leg.
Callie has told Alex that he has to go back to the hospital, but Alex takes the long way, wandering through triage hoping to find someone who needs help. He finally sees some paramedics loading up a guy and concedes defeat, walking up to them for a lift back. But then he sees that the patient has a number of Silly Bandz on his fingers and realizes that the guy must have a kid. And yes, I did know that "Bandz" ends with a z. Why can I not remember someone's name ten seconds after I've met them but I have a spot in my head that remembers not only the name of these little things, but that they are inexplicably misspelled?
Alex runs over to where the guy was found and starts looking around to see if he notices anything that might lead him to a child. He then sees a hand sticking up out of the dirt and runs towards it and starts to dig. A HAND. I get that this situation is chaotic and that the kid's poor little appendage was covered in dirt and not totally easy to spot, but at the same time, it was A HUMAN HAND. Well, kudos to Alex for finding him but shame on literally every single other person with eyes who is at the scene.
