Izzie wakes up only this time she's in bed alone, and she stands up and panics until she sees him in the doorway. She screams that she thought he'd left her again, and when he says yet again that he's there for her, she counters that he already left her once by dying. He seems almost happy to see her freaking out as she yells at him that he left her, and that she'd moved on. She yells about how she's probably going crazy and talking to herself while there's a real world outside and she's stuck there now. He apologizes which makes her freak out even more and she lets loose the guilt she's clearly been carrying around about the part she played in his stolen heart and his death. He finally stops looking happy and sits down on the bed near her. He tells her, "I love you," and with her head in her hands she says it back.
Bailey comes to join Mere and Cristina and when she demands to know whose idea this was, Lexie admits it was hers. Cristina and Mere have been doing a good job, but Cristina starts to panic that she can't do it. Calmly, Bailey tells her to feel for whatever it is she needs to reach rather than look for it, and she's able to talk her through the procedure. Mere asks if she should do a particular type of suture, and Bailey continues to teach, telling her to do what feels right. Ryan looks on in scared awe while Lexie just looks panicky.
Wherever the rest of the interns fled to, they now are all gathered in the hall worrying about going to jail. George finds them and quietly asks why Lexie didn't come to him, saying he might have been able to stop her. Lexie retorts that this is the first thing she's done in months that wasn't actually about trying to get him to notice her, and maintains that it was all her before she walks away. George stands there a second and Graciella tells him, "Dude, she's like in love with you. How did you miss that?" Wait, he was supposed to still not know that? Because I thought he put two and two together when she got mad that he didn't pick her as an intern. Clearly I was wrong. (As you all know, not for the first time this season.) Lex walks to the railing to see Richard arrive and talk sternly to Cristina and Mere.
