Pretty (or Prettier) is in bed with Meredith in the on-call room, spooning with her. She starts to talk about when she was dead, and how before she went in the water everything seemed so complicated, but then he pulled her out and she came back, and for a moment everything was so clear. "As if the water had washed everything clean." She asks if he remembers, and yeah, oddly enough he does. She pauses and says, "Me too." His face goes from showing a glimmer of hope back to dark again, and he kisses her. Mere just stares; I think she's supposed to be pondering all of her Deep Issues, but she just looks vapid and blank.
Izzie is by herself in the empty OR, and she lies on the table and looks around, thinking about what it all looks like. She turns and sees a monitor with herself on it, so she gets up and turns it away so Mr. Arnold won't have a front-row seat to his own heart surgery, before looking around some more to view the room from a patient's eyes. Last week we had all the PR showing us that George is a good guy, and this week the campaign for is Izzie.
In a semi-dark room, Helena and George are standing and still holding onto the dress. Do they really never turn on all the lights after dark at Seattle Grace? I've never seen an actual hospital so dark the moment the sun goes down each evening. They both look exhausted, and George tells her he can't imagine how she did it for two days. Shouldn't he do her the courtesy of not looking as tired as she does, given that she has been at it for two days, and was semi-scalped in the process? He could look a little bit more alive for her sake, given that, unlike Jackie, she's been quite sweet to him all day. She challenges him to let go, but he points out that if he lets go, he's not just losing Jackie's wedding; Dr. Sloane will kill him. She stares at him a moment and then tells him about her mother who manages a grocery store, proving that of the two, she is definitely the Good Bride to Jackie's Bridezilla. Her mom has gone into tons of debt planning Helena's wedding because it's her dream, and what she's been living for since Helena's dad left. Helena declares that she can do this however long it takes for her mom, since her mom has done so much for her. Her story over, she blinks hard and begins to sway, and George hollers for a crash cart and catches her as she passes out.
