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.
Lexie has somehow found a laptop and is showing Kerry the cell phone video -- I guess Warren accidentally shoved her down before the lightning struck, and while it looks totally innocuous to me, Lexie somehow realized that this ruptured something in her spine -- Derek explains that it's an epidural hematoma, that was probably too small to see on her films earlier but that has now been bleeding for hours. The surgery to fix it is an easy one, though, and Kerry is thrilled to know that she'll walk again. Lexie has a thrilling moment herself when Derek tells her to book an OR and she realizes she'll be assisting with surgery once again. He glares at Mark pointedly, Lexie thanks him for the chance, and then she gives Mark her own stinkeye before leaving the room. Mark is left with Kerry, who muses that it was so stupid of her to go so long without telling Warren her feelings, and that all of her reasons seemed so good until she almost died. She smiles and shakes her head at herself, while Mark thinks about how amazingly this parallels his own feelings at this very moment.
