After some initial hesitation, Meredith finally went on a date with the hunky Dr. Thorpe on the March 24 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ Plus, April dealt with the repercussions of keeping her pregnancy a secret from Jackson, and Amelia’s relationship with Owen hit a speed bump.
Major drama went down on the March 24 episode of Grey’s Anatomy, but on the bright side, nothing bad happened to Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). In fact, by the end of the episode, she was smiling from ear to ear while out on a date with Dr. Thorpe (Scott Elrod). And we don’t blame her — he’s HOT!
We’ll start with the good stuff first. After running into Thorpe outside the hospital, Meredith agreed to have a drink with him the following night. And while Maggie was super excited for her, Alex (Justin Chambers) predicted she’d cancel at the last minute. Throughout the episode, we saw Meredith nervously getting ready — she shaved her legs in a hospital bathroom, struggled with the idea of what to wear, and asked Callie (Sara Ramirez) for dating advice. But even after all was said and done, Alex was right — Meredith tried cancelling on Thorpe. However, he offered to drive her home after her long surgery and when they arrived, they chowed down on fast food, shared surgery stories, and just kept smiling at each other. It was super cute!
As for the bad stuff, April (Sarah Drew) dealt with the repercussions of keeping her pregnancy a secret from Jackson (Jesse Williams). After telling Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) to “go to hell” for spilling the beans, April tried keeping herself busy in surgery. But when she finally came face-to-face with Jackson, they had a screaming match in the middle of the hospital. Then, he came to her apartment, where they both apologized to each other and agreed on not fighting, but that was short-lived. Once Jackson assumed April kept the pregnancy a secret just long enough to where she could no longer get an abortion, they started fighting again. She said he has no rights because they’re not married and the baby isn’t born yet. She said she’d never have an abortion and then she slammed the door on his face. Woof.
Also — Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) showed up at Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) trailer for a little birthday fun, but he was super drunk when she arrived. Considering she’s a recovered alcoholic, we felt super uncomfortable watching, so we can only imagine how she felt looking at all those empty beer bottles. That must be why she quickly left and stormed off.
