Jackson and Cristina are scrubbing in for the surgery and he tells her he's glad they'll be back in there together; it makes him less freaked out. She asks if this spilling of his feelings will become a Thing now just because they were almost shot together, but he just tells her that now he knows she's back. He goes in to the OR and she pulls up her own mask, clearly not as sure about that.
In another OR, Bailey is working on Warren while Alex sighs like he's going for gold in the annual Martyrdom Games. She starts naming horrible things like staph infection, an abscess, and any number of things that can lead to sepsis and then even death. April is confused but Bailey calmly says this is what could happen if Alex doesn't get the bullet removed. He's not swayed, and just tells her he'll deal with that when the time comes. He then asks with a whine if he can go, but Bailey tells him no way, and that she'll keep him here watching because that means he won't be able to get into another OR until he's "lead free." One thing this bullet has done for him has let him really perfect his put-upon, tragic sighing.
Linda's surgery starts and Teddy starts the clock -- because there isn't a tense situation that can't be made tenser with the addition of a time restraint -- and has Cristina lift out her heart. I was worried a moment that we were going to have another organ-dropping debacle, but she takes it over and puts it on ice as Jackson comments, "Badass." Teddy then gets to work as Cristina holds it still, and she genuinely tells Cristina, "Welcome back." Cristina thanks her, but the tension is still coming off of her in almost visible waves.
