Alex is pacing like a hungry tiger outside of labor and delivery when Arizona and Teddy walk out wheeling an incubator holding the new baby. He's worried to hear that she deteriorated fast upon her arrival into the world and suggests all sorts of next steps, but Arizona has already taken care of everything. She finally tells him firmly that they've got this one and when he claims this is his patient, she tells him that it's not anymore. He's left behind as they head down the hall, staring at the door like a man gazing over a fence at the forbidden cabbage patch.
Jackson finds Mark scrubbing in and as he starts to wash his hands he relays the info about Thatcher being there with his new young lovah. Mark agrees that that would be upsetting, especially since Meredith is no help when it comes to Thatcher. That's kind of true, but also feels like a bit of an undeserved knock as Meredith's relationship is super different with him. Regardless, he just wants the best for Lexie and stares at Jackson, who realizes he's not going to be operating on anyone just yet. He protests but Mark is adamant that Lexie needs someone to talk to and advises Jackson to give her some peanut butter cups, which will get her talking. Jackson thinks this is ridiculous but Mark just revises his bribe to be pro-bono cleft palate surgeries the next day, which might be great for Jackson in the race for Chief Resident. Jackson picks up on his use of "might" and Mark tells him that if he gets results, they will talk.
