When they meet her there she pulls out a dummy and slings it over her shoulder, yelling out what's wrong just like the paramedics do when they bring someone in. She does actually seem possessed, and Alex implores Owen to tell her she's won or else she won't stop. Owen claims it's not a contest but come on, seriously? You don't organize people into teams and create a last man standing situation if there isn't going to eventually be a winner. He did that all himself. He finally concedes and tells her that they won and her patient will live another 40 years, so April drops the dummy and runs into Alex's arms before letting out a triumphant yet also rather scary scream.
Bailey storms into the conference room, looking for some sympathy from Derek, but he just presents his laptop screen on which a document says, "Alzheimer's is a bad disease. We should cure it." After 12 hours, that's all he's been able to write. Bailey doesn't answer and goes back to her own problems, griping about Anna letting the brain sit. She wants Derek to go over her head and examine it now, but Derek admits that this is the correct procedure, and that just lets all of the wind out of Bailey's sails. He says that he knows it's personal, but she has to let it go. Bailey, however, can't do that -- she explains that she now has to go tell Bill they still have no idea why Mary died, and ultimately she can't accept that science has failed her this time. She then turns the tables back on Derek and warns him not to talk about letting things go since he can't stop thinking about Meredith's possibly getting Alzheimer's long enough to just write a proposal. That said, she storms out. Man, there is a lot of storming in and out of rooms this week.
Cristina is waiting for Teddy's helicopter when Mere joins her, and after she tells a perturbed Cristina that Roy is in the OR all ready for surgery, she announces that they have to talk. Cristina tries to brush her off but Mere comes and faces her friend, so finally Cristina laughs and asks disbelievingly, "How are you fine?" Cristina maintains that she is ruined but yet Mere went through the same thing and is fine and now acting as her babysitter as well. Mere admits she doesn't know so Cristina just goes on, reminding her about that day and Meredith's offering herself up instead to be shot with no regard for her own life or her pregnancy. Cristina insists that she didn't have a choice but to keep going and save Derek and then claims that if it was anyone else she would have walked away. By now she is starting to melt down, and the two are totally screaming at each other, Mere pointing out what she (and I) totally believe which is that Cristina would never have left a patient there to die in that situation. Also, Cristina seems to be forgetting that Mere was quite not fine for a while at the beginning of the season -- she just managed to work through that eventually. But Cristina has now found an outlet for some of her anger and fear, and she just screams that if she'd walked away she wouldn't be here now. The last part of their argument has been punctuated by the sound of an actual helicopter getting closer, and when it lands and Teddy gets out with her lung cooler she grabs Cristina to brief her on their way to the OR, leaving Mere literally out in the wind. This has been amazingly acted, and I totally understand WHY Christina would feel this way, but I'm just so frustrated that it seemed to come from out of the blue.
