As Teddy is finishing up, Owen can't help himself and snipes that he hopes it was worth it for her to get in there first. Callie walks in to find out if they are done and there's some more passive-aggressive needling from Owen and defensive bitchery from Teddy, who still needs a little while. As she leaves, Callie makes a veiled comment that pointedly reminds Bailey that Callie wants her to help fix this problem. Bailey tries desperately to get her to stay but Callie knows better and slips out.
Lexie is reading and eating lunch in the cafeteria when Mark asks if he can join her. After some more intern bashing Mark gushes some more about Jackson. Lexie agrees with him which causes Mark to blurt out the question, why did they break up? She doesn't have time to answer before Idiot Intern pages and so Mark gets up to leave and tells her this is to be continued. She seems at first relieved, but then kind of wistful once he's gone.
Later that evening, Arizona is shocked to have Alex walk in to the OR while she is working on Tommy. Or rather, while she isn't working because she finds that the bowel is far too damaged and there is nothing else that she can do. He tells her he couldn't just sit at the hotel and do nothing -- what is the point of this stupid storyline? We've seen Alex grow a heart before, but at least it's been consistent and not dropped for weeks for convenience. And even if he's grown a heart, Alex would (or at least should) know that he's going to be of no help to anyone if he doesn't pass this test. Is this to show us he's self-destructive? He is, but that doesn't seem to make sense here since we haven't been working towards that, either. It's just dumb. In the OR right now, Arizona doesn't feel like scolding him because she is sad about Tommy.
April and Jackson are down in the hotel bar having dinner (him) and a drink (her) and mercifully, she's not crying. She is still kind of in a panic about their group falling apart but Jackson just reminds her to concentrate on herself. She finally is able to say, "I'm a soldier," though Jackson has no idea what she is talking about. (Really? I mean, even if he doesn't know that Owen started it, it's not that crazy a statement to make when trying to pump oneself up to tackle something, is it?) The two congratulate themselves on being the last men standing and then hear a laugh from across the bar and notice that Mr. Case Western is there drinking with his buddies, and he starts to walk over. A friend comes with him and I cringe for the guy since he's trying to calm the guy down without making a huge scene, and he's kind of embarrassed at Mr. CW's behavior. Oh man, we have all been there.
