Cut to Bailey on the overpass, surveying her crumbling kingdom. She's joined by Webber, and she can immediately tell that he knows. She fumes a bit but she can't even keep it up. She's just too bummed out. He asks her about her artificial-vein surgery, and she asks if he wants to scrub it on it with her. "One more for the road," he smiles. She's quiet for a moment, then muses that she thought she would be chief of surgery one day. Richard puts his hand on hers, and it's sad because he can't even tell her, "You will." Starting over is going to be a bitch for her.
April and Smash are prepping for surgery, and he's just told her about the liquidation. She harshly smacks it down as a rumor, and when he's like, "But I heard it from Brooks who heard it from ..." she reminds him that that's basically exactly what a rumor is. She tells him to just ask Hunt, but Smash doesn't think he'd ever admit that, not to an intern. Owen shows up, and both Smash and April look at each other, like, "YOU ask him."
Crest is hearing the Five's pitch, though his attention is also being pulled in about five directions. When Derek gets to the part about them being the management group, Crest finally focuses on them. He was under the impression this would be an outright buyout. The doctors all take turns saying how they know the place best, but it's Meredith who makes the argument Crest latches onto: "We're invested." He likes that. Likes that they're fully invested. He then shows that he's been paying attention by running down their resumes for them -- he's awfully impressed by their surgical credentials. But he also knows "there's not a manager in the bunch. Meredith reminds him that Derek was once chief of surgery, but Crest knows what we know: that he stepped down voluntarily after about ten minutes, indicating that he didn't like the job. He tells them that he likes them and respects their passion, but he's just "not feeling it." He tells them to get someone on their team with actual management experience and they can talk.
