Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen this week’s game-changing ‘Greys.’

After Bailey (Chandra Wilson) didn’t show up to her wedding to Ben (Jason George), everyone was left anxiously awaiting her arrival on the Jan. 10 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Thankfully, Ben was notified that Bailey didn’t get a case cold feet. Instead, she went into emergency surgery after the Chief’s (James Pickens Jr.) wife Adele (Loretta Devine) was admitted to the hospital.

Instead of canceling the wedding, Ben postponed the ceremony until Bailey was finished with Adele’s surgery. While waiting for Bailey to return, some of the doctors ditched their wedding attire for scrubs and headed back to the hospital to help with a serious accident involving a motorcycle gang.

Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) chose to kill time by getting a hotel room to spice things up for the first time since Arizona’s leg amputation. Although it was Arizona’s idea to get the room, she later chickened out because she was still self-conscious about her leg.

Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) also decided to stay at the hotel and spent their time at the bar flirting and swapping stories. Their bonding continued when the tipsy duo decided impersonate someone else to snag a free hotel rom.

In an attempt to distract themselves from each other, April (Sarah Drew) and Avery (Jesse Williams) focused on (overly) flirting with Shane (Gaius Charles) and Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton). Shane refused April’s advances, Stephanie did not refuse Avery’s and the pair ended up hooking up.

Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) rushed back to the hospital to assist Bailey with Adele’s surgery. When the doctors seemed to have run out of options, Chief intervened and was able to save Adele’s life with his suggestion.

After an unexpected hook up, Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) were forced to reevaluate their plans to divorce. As usual, they left things a little more than confusing. Although Owen advised they still get divorced and Cristina signed the papers, the on-again off-again couple ended their conversation by kissing.

Since Bailey’s surgery was a success, the doctors returned to the wedding to watch Bailey and Ben exchange vows. Chief even showed up at the reception to support Bailey, but unfortunately it came at a price. Although the surgery seemed to be successful, Adele died a few hours later after a heart attack.

Your recap is slightly off. Adele died before Dr. Weber went to the reception. That was the only reason he went. While Bailey missed it in all her wedded bliss, thank goodness, formerly gloomy Meredith picked up on it almost instantly. That unspoken revelation segued to the most beautiful, romantic and touching scene I’ve ever seen outside TCM.

Loved the episode, but did not like this recap. Please learn how to spell check. It was very distracting trying to read your review with so many missed words and spelling errors.

Not surprised

Posted at 10:31 AM on January 11, 2013  

I love greys but I didn’t find this to be a surprising or game changing episode. Adele has been out of the show for so long and has had so many illnesses that it was about time that they let her go so that Richard and Katherine Avery can get together. They are perfect for each other and she would be a great addition to the show. It’s sad to see Adele die but she has been gone for Richard for so long since her Alzheimer’s has cause her to forget him. Alex and Jo aren’t surprising either. Since the first time I saw them together I knew she was going to be important to him. I like Avery with Stephanie way better then with April. I don’t know why but I cannot stand April. I wish they had never brought her back after they fired her. Christina and Owen are great together but I get where Owen was going with the divorce papers. He wants to be with her and be happy and in love like they were before they got married. Putting Christina in a box like that makes her fight like hell to get out. Them just being together because they love each other instead of because of a piece of paper was so much better then the mess they were in since they got married. I love Callie and Arizona and I am glad they have finally started talking and getting back to the happy in love couple they used to be. Arizona being so angry and nasty all the time was (while understandable) hard to watch because she is always so positive and full of light! And I love that bailey and Ben got married. It’s nice to see calm cool bailey get all crazy over a wedding and then to see her so happy at the reception. Hopefully they will give merideth and Derek some screen time in the next episode as they were filler last night!

The reason that these two did not work out wasn’t because she was put in a “box” , but because they both have different life goals. It’s not marriage, but incompatability. He wants kids and a family and she wants her career and no kids. How is this now going to change?? Is he going to give up wanting to be a father just to be with her?? Is she going to give in and have a child to make him happy??
