Is it a McBoy, or a McGirl? Spoilers ahead!

The newly named Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital was buzzing with excitement as it reopened its ER on the March 21 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. With the hospital finally revamped and moving in a positive direction, the doctors were excited about their new roles as owners of the hospital — but can they handle the pressure?

All of the doctors were super enthusiastic about the ER reopening, especially Owen (Kevin McKidd), who purchased a very expensive state-of-the-art body scan machine. The doctors were eager to try out the new toy, but unfortunately, it would be a while before a patient could christen the machine.

With Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) baby growing everyday, the surgeon became paranoid about all the possible things that could be wrong with her. Meanwhile, Derek (Patrick Dempsey) got some fatherly practice when he mentored Shane (Gaius Charles) through a brain surgery on a young girl with a difficult father.

After getting a new, more realistic prosthetic leg, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) was feeling sexy for the first time since the plane crash — and Callie (Sara Ramirez) agreed. The couple finally seemed like things were going to be heating back up, but a quarrel between the pair quickly put the fire out.

Inspired by the improvement of the hospital, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) was on a mission to get other doctors to support a special genome research project. Cristina (Sandra Oh) was also on a quest for innovation after a former classmate’s achievements were brought to her attention. She got the opportunity she was looking for when the head of cardio asked her to scrub in on a unique heart surgery. Unfortunately for Cristina, the surgeon was more interested in her powerful position at the hospital rather than her surgery skills.

Although Alex (Justin Chambers) still refused to admit his feelings for Jo (Camilla Luddington), he was obviously jealous over her new romance with Jason (Charles Michael Davis). To make himself feel a little bit better, Alex and his child cancer patient decide to play practical jokes on Jason including paging him all over the hospital looking for a patient named “Jenny Tailia” and giving a cup of pee to Bailey for a drug test.

To spite the cardio surgeon who used her for her power, Cristina took away the funding for his project and gave to Bailey for her study. Cristina killed two birds with one stone because without the funding, the surgeon was forced to let her work with him on the case. Callie realized she was being insensitive towards Arizona and sweetly apologized, which was the perfect way to ignite the spark back into their relationship!

To calm her fears about having a baby whose blind or has 11 fingers, Meredith and Derek did an ultrasound to check up on their little one and found out some exciting news — it’s a boy!
