Kirstin's 'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Meredith Is Selfish Not To Let Cristina Be Godmother To Callie's Baby!

Just because it makes her sad about being childless, doesn’t mean Meredith shouldn’t support Cristina being a godmother to another kid! That’s so uncool!

I’m beginning to lose my lust for Grey’s Anatomy. Lately watching repeats from season two excites me more than new episodes. However, if I’m going to rant about anything from the “Golden Hour” episode Feb. 17, it’s Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) total and complete selfishness when it comes to Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) being a godmother to Callie’s (Sara Ramirez) baby. She is being irrational!

Early in the episode, Cristina breaks the news to Meredith that Callie has asked her to be a godparent in her child’s life. Instead of acting like a normal person, Mer gets awkward and tells Cristina under no circumstances should she accept the honor. Why? Because it makes Mer feel like Cristina thinks she’ll never have a baby.

This is where I get confused. Why can’t Cristina be a godmother to Callie’s kid AND Mer and Derek’s? Is there some sort of unspoken rule you can’t be a godparent to two kids? I get Mer is all hopped up on fertility hormones and stress, but it doesn’t give her a complete pass to act like a crazy lady. Then again, I was also surprised at Cristina’s willingness to go along with Meredith’s demands. Without even questioning her behavior, Cristina agrees to tell Callie no.

On a lighter note, I loved Meredith and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) “date” in the elevator. He tells her to drop her pants because he’ll be in and out quickly…obviously, we think they’re about to have a fast rendezvous. She drops her pants, he sticks something in and she grimaces. Plot twist, she was only getting a hormone shot in her butt. Pretty clever!

All in all, I just want Meredith to get preggers already. C’mon, Shonda Rhimes — give that lady a baby!

What did YOU think of the episode? Was Meredith irrational with Cristina? Sound off below!

I agree that Meredith is selfish about this, but I also agree that since when have Callie and Cristina been all buddy-buddy?

Wait…Is this show still on?? I thought they all ended up half naked on a desert island. Oh. Sorry. That’s that other show. You know – the one where the doctors are half naked on a desert island. Never mind.

My first reaction to Christina’s report to Mer was “why would Callie ask her?” The two of them have never been close. I understand that, despite what people might believe, being a godparent doesn’t necessarly mean that they will get the kids. It’s more of a “symbolic” gesture that goes along with the Catholic idea that said person is responsible for the spiritual well being of the child. So to some people who aren’t very religious it could be seen as something you could easily do multiple times. I, on the other hand, still think it isn’t a title you toss at any warm body. Callie should have chosen a person who means a lot to her. If it were up to me, I’d pick Miranda. Although I’ve had enough of her melting into this tongue tied, girlish bimbo every time she sees the naughty male nurse. I know he’s hot but COME ON! WHERE IS THE STRONG WOMAN WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE?

This episode once proves that EP is the weakest actress on this show, just when you are watching her scenes with SO, CW or SR, you realize how mediocore her acting is compare with others, no wonder she can’t win any award.

AMAZING EPISODE AND ELLEN POMPEO ROCKED IT

Christina is Merediths person she her best friend Callie is not Christina’s closest why would she be her kids Godmothers makes no sense at all. plus it does and every normal person will feel sad and pain if your closest best friend is suddenly god-mothering anothers child rather than yours when are trying a lot to have a baby and no you can only be a Godmother once.. there is a purpose for it… you get the kid if anything happens to the parents. thats wy you do it ONCE. and it should Mers kid. so no
MEREDITH WASNT SELFISH AT ALL. everyone on the show was selfish towards Meredith dozens of times yet no one said anything. Mer deserves this and shes not being selfish.

Err wrong! You can be a God parent more than once. If you actually read the dictionary the meaning of a Godparent is to be responsible for the childs SPIRITUAL up-bringing. That means you’re responsible for helping the child grow in their belief; not look after them if the Parent dies! That is what relatives are for!
So Yes Meredith should put her own feelings aside and let Cristina make decisions for herself.
