Mark sees Jackson outside and runs after him to apologize, but both keep trying to apologize to each other at the same time. Finally, they stop, and Mark goes first and tells Jackson that he wants to be his teacher. He's shocked that Jackson replies that he wants to be his student. Happily, they agree to work together on a surgery the next day, and Jackson chokes on his words only a tiny bit as he adds that the Plastics Posse is back in action. Kicking surgical ass and taking names, folks. They then manage to awkwardly screw up their fist bump/posse solidarity signal and settle on a simple happy handshake. I'd make fun of them but as I'm the person who does that to other people all the time, I can't throw any stones at their clumsy glass house.
Mere and Cristina have joined Alex at the bar, and he admits that George wasn't a creep but that he doesn't like to think about him because then he also thinks about Izzie and it all hurts too much. He does admit that if George was there, he would have been Chief Resident, no contest. "George is dead, Izzie's gone, we're all different." It's a little bit sad but also kind of a nice moment for the last three originals standing, and they all seem to ponder it for a moment. Mere VO's that it's horrifying how quickly things can go to shit, but that sometimes it makes one stronger and better equipped to deal with the next disaster.
That disaster is about to stare Teddy in the face. She gets home and sees Henry at the sink, so starts to try to talk about their first real fight. Something about his stance is a little bit odd, though, and she finally asks if he is okay. He turns around to show that he's covered in blood, and then he coughs some more up, looking terrified. Teddy jumps into action, assuring him that he's going to be okay, but Mere's VO wraps up by ominously saying that sometimes we're equipped to deal with the next disaster, but not always.
