In surgatory, Mere wanders out of the room and into the hallway looking for Doc. She doesn't seem to care one bit that Denny is arguing there's no time to look for her undead puppy, nor does she seem to care about her own drowning. Bonnie yells at her, trying to get her to listen, then stops and worriedly says, "Oh no... " At that moment, blood starts to stain her shirt, coming from her stomach (where she had been impaled by the pole in life) and she shakes and falls to the ground. The men catch her and all stare at Mere.
Mere's trying desperately to help, wiping the blood off Bonnie's stomach to no avail. There doesn't seem to be any injury, just magical blood abounding, and she's the only one who is worried. Liz tells her, "It happens with Bonnie, baby, you've just got to ride it." Seriously, how do they all know this? Do the four of them travel around in a pack to counsel dead people? We know from Dylan that Meredith called them specifically, so did they also simultaneously impact other random people in their lives who have also called them to help them cross over? And also, when did this become an episode of Ghost Whisperer? And why am I admitting that I watch that show? So many questions, my head hurts. Dylan tries to tell her there's no point, but she orders him to the OR for supplies. He turns and walks away and disappears into the ether. She sees this and tries to shake it off to turn back to Bonnie, but Liz, Bonnie, and Bonnie's blood have all disappeared. Denny asks her if she'd like to talk or waste more time.
Meanwhile, in real life, Bailey says quietly that they've been at it for over an hour and they should prepare. The Chief just continues his compressions and argues that she's young and healthy, her temp will go up, and her heart will start again. "That's the only possibility I'm prepared for."
Cristina has left the 99-cent store for somewhere even more magical -- the bar. She swigs a beer and offers Joe some moisturizer from the many bags surrounding her. He points out that it smells like something burning, but she just dreamily corrects that it's gingerbread. Hmm, so it's gingerbread that I've tried to make, then. She realizes, "You're not getting this, are you," and dreamily marvels at how every single item cost a mere 99 cents. She dives clumsily beneath the bar as Joe cracks another beer (is that a good idea?) and thunks down a child's plastic chair in front of him and gestures like Vanna White. "It's small, it's tiny-sized, it has cat-like creatures on it. But it is a chair. For 99 cents you can buy furniture. THAT is America, man." Joe corrects her, "That's Taiwan, man," all the while looking like he's going to start backing away slowly any moment. He points out that this ferry disaster is a bad thing, and if she should be... but before he can finish "at work," she declares that she's coping, and his only job is to shut up and, "Look at all my crap!"
