Back in the cardio trauma drama, Yang is shocked when her Cardio God confesses that she hasn't put in a pacemaker in ten years. She doesn't even care that Teddy was going to let her do the procedure, she's too unnerved by her attending's lack of practical experience. So Avery does it and Yang goes to talk to the Chief. Teddy still doesn't seem to care.
Meredith finds Alex who is either working or hiding. Maybe both. She reports that Izzie has been staying with her mom in Chehalis and has been keeping up with her cancer treatment. Alex doesn't say anything, so Meredith leaves. Meanwhile, Bailey has the Chief vertical, caffeinated, and heading into surgery when Yang finds him. Bailey acts as human firewall to prevent the Chief from engaging with Cristina. Bailey reminds her that she asked for a new cardio attending and the Chief found one after another and Cristina ran them all off. Cristina protests, but no one can really argue with Bailey when she's on a roll. Bailey asks Cristina to consider that perhaps she might be the problem. Cristina is flabbergasted and looks to the Chief, but he seconds everything that Yang said. Bailey sends the Chief off to surgery with an overly touchy arm shove that the camera zooms in on and shows in slow motion so we know we should pay extra close attention. Mark and Callie come ask Bailey about some patient, but Adele doesn't pay them no mind. She just wants to know if Bailey is having an affair with her husband. While Bailey is vehemently protesting, Callie and Mark look like they just won the gossip lottery, which they did. Obviously they don't have the decency to leave Bailey and Adele to fight in peace. Bailey is completely horrified by the accusation, but Adele saw that arm touch and she knows that they finish each other's sentences and spend hours together everyday. After listening to this compelling argument, Mark seems to agree that Bailey is definitely having an affair with the Chief. Callie, however, knows a "work husband" when she sees one. She clumsily explains to Adele that Bailey and the Chief are merely meant for each other at work. But this does not mean they are having an affair. This does not really help the situation. Adele finally concedes that maybe Bailey is not sleeping with the Chief, but after years of watching the Chief during his affair with Ellis Grey, she knows the signs. The Chief is having an affair with somebody. Mark and Callie, chuckleheads that they are, giggle like tweens at a New Moon opening. Adele deigns to glare at them and they scamper.
