Lexie walks out of Lucas' room, having just given them an update, and asks Jackson if she should mention any of the risks, since she doesn't want to worry them more than she has to. Jackson just says to tell them that he's going to feel pretty awful, and that every time he feels glad to be alive he'll hate himself for it since his brother died. He then adds that Lucas won't want to talk about it, but he'll be glad they know. Finally!! I'll take talking in totally obvious metaphor if it just means he's getting something off his chest. Lexie looks at him, understanding, but he can't really look at her after saying all that and he takes off.
Mere VOs: "Under the cover of darkness, people do things they'd never do under the harsh glare of day." In Cristina's case, that thing is giving a (thankfully clothed) lap dance to one of the bachelors, and Owen walks in just in time to catch part of the show. Derek tells him it's not as bad as it looks but Owen quips that it does look pretty bad. But he thanks Derek for calling him and for looking out for his wife, and then goes to collect his bride. After he calls her name she looks up and slurs, "Oh my God, it's my boyfriend," and he has to remind her that he's in fact her husband. The bachelor hands her right over, and Owen slings her over his shoulder and takes her home while Joe watches and seems to wonder just what kind of crazy took over his bar that night.
When a very confused and hungover Bailey wakes up a very perky April is there to greet her. April immediately starts talking about the night before and is thrilled that Bailey opened up to her, since she hadn't even known if Bailey liked her at all. Bailey's looking more and more troubled but the last straw is when April suggests that maybe they're kinda sorta friends. Bailey takes a moment and then calmly tells her that this never happened, but when a confused April finally agrees Bailey doesn't think it's enough and makes her actually say the words, so that they can then forget this night ever happened.
Mark has fallen asleep as happy sorbet but Callie is still wide awake, and the freaked-out look on her face shows that she regrets this already. Mere VOs: "Decisions feel wiser."
"People feel older." Mere and Alex are in the conference room, waiting for Stark to finally get there and presumably give them what for. They're reassuring each other that they did what they had to do but Alex points out that Kid is now going to be okay and his mom is happy -- they did what they were trained to do. Mere then smiles and asks if he remembers their first day, when Richard said that only two of them would make it? Simultaneously, they both admit they thought it would be themself and Cristina. They smile and pat themselves on the back for being the last two standing. Stark finally decides to show up, so they both put on serious expressions as he winds up and then starts screaming like a banshee. As he promises to make their lives living hells, and rebukes them for "hijacking" an OR (seriously, at this point it feels kind of like he would rather the kid died, purely out of spite) Richard walks by and starts watching at the window. He chuckles, and while Alex keeps a straight face Mere shakes her head ever so slightly. It seems to be a proud chuckle rather than a "you're getting what you deserve" chuckle, since they did what he said and figured out how to get things done at night.
