Across town, vomit is a healing balm for two crazy kids. Cristina is lying on the bathroom floor with Owen sitting beside her, dabbing her forehead with a washcloth. They finally joke with each other like normal people about the restaurant and that he picked it specifically because she liked their spring rolls, which makes her laugh. They seem to have broken through the barrier that was still up and are just back to loving each other for who they are once again. He wants to go to bed but she's not ready to get up from the floor so he just shifts her over so her head is resting in his lap and they gaze lovingly at one another.
Meredith and Derek have both fallen asleep. They aren't under the covers and are still fully clothed, but they are at least on the same bed with their hands almost touching. We get one last head-bashing shot of the empty crib and Meredith VO's about taking a path even when you have no idea where it's going. It better be going back to Derek not make every single tiny thing just about himself, or else I'm going to throw something at my TV one of these episodes. And I love my TV too much for that.
Lauren S is a writer and gal-about-town who lives and works in Atlanta and is going to skip the spring rolls at dinner tonight. She wants everyone to know: "The views expressed in my recaps and anything else I might write on TWoP are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer."
