Following the reveal of her tumor and eventual removal, Amelia forgot her own brother died. (Can we also pretend it never happened?) Plus, Meredith dealt with the fallout from her conversation with Nathan.
With Amelia’s tumor out in the open (not literally), it was time for her surgery during the Oct. 12 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. But before she went under, she told Maggie to take her room if she died and April would be her power of attorney, should she wake up without any brain activity. It seemed like an odd choice, but she said April was close to Owen, and not to her, so she wouldn’t have a hard time pulling her plug if need be. And guess what? There were some complications. Following her surgery, Amelia woke up but couldn’t speak. And then she went back to sleep before waking up to a lot of pain.
Another issue? She also woke up from surgery thinking Derek was still alive. Awkward! She claims she just forgot, but everyone worried it was a consequence of her surgery. Fortunately, it wasn’t and everything — health-wise — seems to be okay with her. Her marriage with Owen, however, may not be. She gave him an out, but he said he wanted to stick with her “through sickness and in health.” Will they stay together? Only time will tell.
Later, Meredith asked Jackson if she could remove his name from the article about her amazing abdominal transplant procedure so she could try to win a Harper Avery. Jackson seemed annoyed, but he agreed. Meredith did, however, want to include Jo in the article, but Jo quietly freaked out about it because then her husband could easily find her. Anyway, Meredith was later forced to deal with the fallout from her conversation with Nathan last week. She told him to make a grand gesture to Megan, and that he did (he brought Megan’s son to the U.S.)! So it looks like Nathan and Megan may get their happy ending, but as for Meredith, well… she’s back to being alone.
Elsewhere, Bailey and Richard were getting ready to welcome a new set of interns to the hospital. And let’s just say the new stars of the hospital are not what we would have expected them to be. Some whispered when they talked, and others talked about when they lost their virginity. It was one big hot mess!
And finally, Maggie found herself at an awkward family dinner, when Richard brought her to a get together with Catherine and Jackson. Catherine was annoyed that Richard didn’t tell her about brining Maggie beforehand, but their arguing really stemmed from that fact that Catherine once had a relationship with Amelia’s surgeon/teacher. And at this dinner, Jackson was informed he would inherit all of his grandfather’s money ($250 million), which Maggie described as “Beyonce money.” Will he and Maggie share it, when and if a romance heats up? Not so fast — Catherine threw water on that flame when she referred to Maggie as Jackson’s sister. Yuck!
