In the on-call room, post-hookup, Henry declares how much loves that room and Teddy thinks she wants to bring him to work every day. That gives him a perfect opening to talk to her about an idea he claims to know is silly, but that is something he really wants to do. She props herself up to hear it, and he announces that he wants to go back to school. She's surprised but manages to cover and tells him (and herself) that adults do that all the time. But as it turns out, Henry means med school. He's genuinely excited at the idea but she acts as if he just said he wants to become a time traveler; he jumps up and reminds her they have another surgery to get to, and this conveniently keeps him from seeing her aghast expression.
Lexie is on tenterhooks as Justine narrates more of the book to her. Kate is with Nathan, and she realized that she travels through time to be where she wants to be and has now made a decision. Lexie is super excited until she hears Justine say that Kate apologizes to Nathan and then disappears to Paris to find Alexander the no-good pickpocket. To say that Lexie is appalled at this turn of events would be the understatement of the season. She starts to argue passionately that Kate and Alexander want different things and make each other miserable, but Justine simply says that they are soulmates. Hmm, it's like this story oh, completely, utterly, thoroughly mirrors what Lexie is going through in her own life! What a coincidence! Though I will admit that when Lexie yells at Justine that she's the author and can do whatever she wants with these characters, I have yelled exactly the same thing at an open book before. Justine just maintains that she can't betray the character. Because this book sounds juicy and fantastic, and Alfre Woodard is always awesome, and I want Lexie and Mark back together, I'm actually enjoying these scenes but I also fear that my eyes are going to get stuck rolling up in my head at yet another patient's story just happening to exactly parallel with something happening to one of our doctors. Lexie stubbornly thinks that picking Nathan is the right thing to do. For a moment she's so caught up that she doesn't realize that Justine has slumped over, and when she starts to have a seizure Lexie yells for help since it appears the aneurysm finally blew.
