Arizona is by Callie's bedside, talking through what Mark said to her about being "nothing." It's technically true, she admits, legally-speaking. But it doesn't feel that way. She feels like Callie's wife; like their baby's mom. "Can you just live," she begs, crying. "For me?"
Song: "Universe and U"

Performed by: Callie and Arizona
Most Portentous Lyric: "I'll send you a sign / just so you know that I am near"
Callie and Arizona sing to each other as Arizona holds Callie's hand. And when they get to that portentous lyric up there, real-life Callie manages to wiggle her finger. Outside the room, Mark looks on, and Addison urges him to go in there and make peace with Arizona. "There's nothing left to say," Mark gruffs. Then Callie's monitor starts going crazy. The doctors race in and diagnose: her pressure's dropping like a rock, her belly's hard -- she's bleeding out.

Most Portentous Lyric: "Don't know how / but I'll get by"
After the commercial break, Callie is wheeled into surgery in slow-motion, while her apparition sits atop her own gurney and sings beatifically about grace. Mark and Arizona look on helplessly. After the surgery has begun, they're up in the gallery, and Arizona suggests they pray. "She'd want us to pray." Mark, not relinquishing an opportunity to be a dick, says he hasn't stopped praying since yesterday. Arizona graciously declines to grab the nearest shiny object and hand it to Mark, the winner of the Grief Awards. Instead, she just silently starts to pray.
Meanwhile, down in the surgery, Callie;s brain starts to bleed, causing a bit of a panic among the doctors. Cristina says Altman's method isn't working and there's still time to do it Burke's way. Altman declines and says she can fix it, but Owen finally makes the call to let Cristina take lead. Altman digs her heels in until the Chief finally tells her to back away. Not Altman's finest hour, you guys. Owen begins to talk Cristina through the procedure, which begins like this: "Step One, you say we need to talk ... " So, yeah, you knew we were getting The Fray at some point.
