Callie is home, her makeup cried off, and she stares at her closed bedroom door. And finally, we learn just what Kate's "or something" was alluding to -- she finally opens the door and we see the back of Arizona's head where she is sitting huddled in bed. Callie tells her that she can't keep doing this alone and then, when there is no reaction, demands that Arizona snap out of it and get out of bed. She announces that Sofia lost a parent, Callie lost her best friend and she'll be damned if she loses Arizona too. But when Arizona turns around her face is filled with rage and she demands, "Snap out of this?" as she pulls the covers away to show that she is missing one leg from the thigh down. Let this be a lesson, boys and girls -- never assume a TV character is dead until you actually hear the words. (And, in the case of soap operas, maybe hold off that assumption for a few extra moments too.) She demands how she is supposed to snap out of it when Callie cut off her leg? OH. That could put a strain on a relationship, I suppose. Both of them are livid and Callie finally turns and slams the door as she leaves.
But before we go, we get one last home video -- Arizona is behind the camera trying to take a shot of Callie, Mark and Sofia but as they freeze with smiles they realize it's on video and she doesn't know how to turn it off. Mark finally takes the camera and Arizona uses the moment to go take his place in the shot with a cheeky grin. As Meredith reminds us that you never stop feeling the loss because people leave little bits of themselves behind, Mark turns the camera towards his face and grins widely as he figures it out. A snapshot is taken, and then the screen fades to black and we see, "Mark Sloan 1968-2012." And though I've now watched this episode twice, my eyes start to prickle AGAIN. Dammit, show.
