Callie and George pass each other in the hallway, and she pauses to ask how Helena did in surgery. She's actually friendly as she mock-begs him to say he let go first, since she couldn't handle it if Jackie won. George just smiles at her and when she asks him what, he sincerely says he didn't know if they'd be able to talk ever again. She tells him quietly, "I'm letting go. I have to. Let go." And with that she walks off. Don't let the symbolism hit you on the way out!
In Helena's room, her fiancé asks her why she didn't tell anyone she was hurt, and she admits that she knew he'd make her let go. Sweetly he confirms, "Hell yeah, I would've!" And while we've been clobbered over the head with how she's the nice, deserving bride, I have to admit she is really likable and sweet, and I'm getting a little warm and mushy about them right now. She tells him it doesn't matter since she lost anyway, but George pipes up and tells her that he let go first. She can't believe it, but he explains, "Someone had to catch you!" The judge walks in then, as if he'd been waiting for the cue, and blandly hands her the check and tells them to have a nice life as he glides out. Helena's crying and saying that they actually did it, and her fiancé proudly tells her that she did it. "This is all you." George watches them, hopefully taking notes on what a functional, loving relationship looks like.
Mere cleans up Rick's scar, and he admits that he knows it's silly, but he's a little bit disappointed that it's his only scar from the ordeal. Meredith tells him that it goes away, and logically he thinks she means the scar. She of course is talking about the feeling that he can do anything -- that clarity goes away, and then he'll go "right back to being the coward who can't tell the person you love how you feel." He's still looking kind of confused -- I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that it's from the shock to his body, and not because he's that dense -- and she whispers that she saw the video. He's absolutely horrified, and like he's in junior high tries to make sure that Sally won't see it and learn how he feels. He goes on about how great and out of his league she is, and how surely she can't feel the same way. Meredith points out that if she doesn't, then he can move on, but if he never finds out how she feels, "then that won't be your only scar." He smiles at her, and Sally walks in, so Meredith goes out with a smile back at him.
