Owen is also dealing with the complexities of having such a high-profile patient and he gets an earful from Frank about the fact that Holly's picture is on the cover of a newspaper. Cristina walks up to the door in time to hear their conversation, in which Frank goes from mad to sad in about .2 seconds. He just wants Owen to keep his daughter safe, and Owen promises it won't happen again. I give this show a lot of crap but here is some credit where it is really due -- they are doing an amazing job showing just how shattering and confusing this must be for the parents and how much they obviously care and are not at all bad or angry people. Once he leaves Cristina walks in to have him sign off on some paperwork and as he does, she puts out a tiny little olive branch and points out that with cameras on everyone's phones these days, he can't be expected to be able to keep them completely out of the hospital. Owen is beating himself up hard, though, and thinks he could be doing a way better job. He finally admits that he's making mistakes and in over his head, and he seems incredibly frustrated about being Chief in general. He puts his head in his hands as he laments the fact that he's added to Frank's hurt and cries that he's failing Holly. Cristina takes the paperwork and then tells him sincerely that he's doing the best he can. He's thoroughly confused to get this reaction from this woman.
Derek and Mark both head up to the daycare to pick up their daughters and while they are all playing, Bailey comes in looking for Tuck. She doesn't see him and so asks the woman in charge, who doesn't know either and claims he was just there a minute ago. This is all too much for Bailey, who has one of the biggest meltdowns we have ever seen. Off the top of my head, I can only imagine her more upset one time, and that was while Charles was dying in her arms as a shooter roamed the hospital's halls. She hollers at the woman to call a code pink (child abduction) and when the woman protests that there is a protocol for doing so Derek realizes she's about to have protocol punched through her teeth and tells her to do it.
Bailey comes absolutely unglued as she cries that Tuck is probably somewhere screaming since he has been taught to scream if he is taken and is so upset that she doesn't realize another worker has walked in with Tuck, who is holding a bunch of tissues. The woman explains that he had a nosebleed, so she took him to the nurse and Bailey has to fight hard to compose herself and act normal and happy with him. Even Tuck has a little bit of a "mom's crazy" skeptical look on his face. She tells Tuck they should go home and get ice cream and as they leave, Mark and Derek look after her with worried looks on their faces. I'm not entirely sure what we're supposed to take away from this -- Bailey did come unhinged in a way that we've never seen before, but has also been spending the last couple of weeks with a front-row view of what can happen when your child is snatched in a quick moment. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be the start of a Thing with Bailey, or just an illustration of how horribly Holly's case affected the public at large. I guess we will just wait and see.
