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!
