Owen and Cristina are sitting outside and he's trying to continue their conversation but she's still more interested in shooting down all of his suggestions, including his taking leave for a year to raise the baby. When he pleads that this doesn't have to be her problem, she points out that it's not like she's just going to ignore the baby -- she's not a horrible monster and that if she had a baby she'd love it. Owen hears this and the proverbial light goes on over his head; he can't help smiling as he realizes that her problem is that she would love the baby and she obviously doesn't want to. It only infuriates her more that he seems amused by this, and she finally tells him that there is no compromise because the bottom line is that she just doesn't want to be a mother. He changes his approach, and asks if she loves and trusts him. She can tell it's a trap but she does love and trust him, even if she thinks he's ridiculous when he says she would make a great mother. He then begs her again to sleep on the idea but Cristina's pissed that he's not just agreeing with her point of view and seems appalled at the fact that he keeps using their love as a reason for her to not make a rash decision.
Notification time has arrived; Lexie has three families to notify and frets that she's not sure she can go through this three times. I don't blame her. Avery assures her to take it a step at a time and then decides that she'll be cheered up by hearing about Mark's having "given" her to Avery that morning. I can't tell if he is doing this because he thinks Lexie will be appalled and it will be a knock against Sloan or if he's fishing for a reaction that will assure him that Lexie doesn't care about Mark anymore. Whatever his reasoning it works to get Lexie's mind off of the notifications for a second, though it seems to have been more because of horror than amusement. Andrew then comes out and tells them all that it's time.
The docs pile into the cafeteria en masse and then one at a time begin to call families forward. As they take them off to a private room the people who have been called are all smiling, and April realizes that they all think they are about to receive good news. I guess they don't notice that the doctors all seem gutted and many of them have tears in their eyes as they call out names.
Teddy goes to see Henry and brings some pudding to share, but Henry informs her coldly that his nurse can bring him snacks. She's looking for comfort after two hours of informing people that their family members are dead, and is confused that Henry isn't his usual self. What she didn't realize is that Henry's limit was reached when they had their first emotional goodbye, and he's over it now. He tells her that he tried to be a gentleman but now he just wants her to leave. Teddy thinks he's joking but Henry informs her that letting her go was the most painful thing he's ever done, and that's including all of his 82 surgeries. He lashes out that he's not her security blanket, he's in love with her, and now she just needs to go take herself off to Germany and leave him alone. She gets up and leaves the room crying with her pudding cups in hand.
