Hahn is storming down the hall with Meredith tagging along, and Hahn tells her to get Izzie so that Hahn can permanently throw her off of her service. Meredith then makes the choice to sort of tell Hahn what's going on. On the one hand, I'm not sure how Hahn didn't learn about this already given the amount of personal shit that flies around this hospital. On the other hand, if she didn't know, would telling her really be the right thing, since it would most likely make her flip out? I don't know how you could think she'd react any other way. But, Mere admits that like Hahn has a relationship with this guy, so does Izzie, by way of Denny. Hahn just tells Mere to send Izzie to her.
As Derek and Bailey work on Mrs. Bullard, he tells her that he solved his "Yang problem." She's surprised that he managed that already and without even hearing the dumbass scheme, tells him it sounds too easy and warns, "If it doesn't feel like work, it isn't going to work." Derek asks if she learned that in marriage counseling and Bailey laughs that she didn't, and that counseling is a waste of time. She's sure the Bullards never got marriage counseling. In honor of their great marriage, the tumor begins to hemorrhage and her brain to swell. They get a handle on it, and Bailey tells Derek to make sure that the couple gets a chance to say hello again.
Izzie finds Alex sulking in the hall -- literally sulking, slumped, frowning, hands crossed over his chest -- because he hates Stan, and he asks if he can scrub in on anything. She just warns him that Izzie is having a bad day, but Cristina overhears and pulls Mere away to complain about how she is the one having a hard day. I don't always rank these things but in the scheme of things, I've got to say I'm actually going with Izzie having the short end of today's stick. She pulls Mere over to tell her that Hunt hates her, and when Meredith reminds her of the kiss, Cristina brushes that off as "before." She agonizes over the fact that she has no idea what she did to earn his wrath, and even goes so far as to say that it's worse than things were with Hahn. As she runs off to answer a page, murmuring that she needs to get off the case, she literally runs into Sloane. He again tries to sweet-talk her and suggests a little time in the on-call room but she cuts off every sentence he starts, clearly oblivious to his efforts. As she runs off he gripes, "This does not happen to me."
