Which leads us to this seriously bizarre scene where Richard approaches Callie as she's scrubbing up for a surgery and just intoned darkly: "Grey." Callie refuses whatever Richard's suggesting. "Yang, maybe," she says, but Richard says Yang's a cowboy. They both propose Kepner and decide against it. The whole scene is being filmed in near darkness, with us only seeing their reflections in the glass. Like this is Mulholland Dr. or (more to this show's speed) something out of Once Upon a Time. And there's this Phillip Glass Fog of War music playing. It's very strange. Anyway, Richard insists that Callie will make do with Grey, then he -- I shit you not -- recedes back into the darkness. Like Marley's ghost. WTF?
Elsewhere, Ellen Page is quizzing Alex while he examines a child (and freaks him out by talking about a hypothetical chest-cracking case). Arizona comes in and gets the rundown on the kid, who needs a gastroscopy. Arizona assigns Ellen Page -- whose name is Morgan Peterson -- the surgery, with Alex supervising. Which appears to annoy him, and he calls Morgan "Megan" and perhaps not by accident.
Bailey is getting REALLY worked up about Sloan and Avery "stealing" a patient of hers. This is a woman Bailey treated for eight years and finally -- miraculously -- cured her cancer. Now, the woman has come to Sloan for a procedure that Bailey previously ruled she was a poor candidate for. Avery explains about some new technique that they think would work on the patient, but Bailey thinks it's too risky and intends to take her case to the patient herself. Sloan tasks Avery with convincing Bailey they're right. Best of luck!
Meredith approaches Callie for a little of the old walk-'n'-talk. And finally the cloak of secrecy is pulled away -- Richard suggested Meredith be the recipient of some super-secret study method that Callie has apparently perfected and is keeping locked away in a vault where no one but the most worthy of surgeons can access it. If Meredith can remove Excalibur from the stone in which it sits, she will have proven herself worthy of its splendor! Or something. Callie has also taken to talking about herself and Meredith in the third person. She tells "Meredith Grey" that she's going to have to prove herself today, as today is going to be "a grind." They've reached the patient at this point, and he's drawn a crowd of doctors around him. The crowd parts and we get one of those very Grey's shots where the doctor sees what we've yet to see and is stopped in his or her tracks. So goes Meredith. Callie steps up to the patient and we see the situation. Dude's elbow deep into a meat grinder. The EMT rolls her eyes at Callie's unforgivable "grind" pun. Hey, someone had to do it. So. A meat grinder. Can I go back to the singing?
