‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9, episode 13 review: Secret motives and life lessonsJanuary 31, 2013
There was no shortage of drama on “Grey’s Anatomy” Thursday night, especially as the financial crisis within the walls of Seattle Grace is starting to boil over. Alana had installed cameras all throughout the hospital for the sake of “optimization,” though you really could translate this to mean “trying to make sure that nobody is able to hook up.” That may not be the purpose, but we don’t think the doctors like having someone up in their business, and also telling them how to more or less do their jobs.
Of course, there was much more to this “Eye” than the doctors originally knew. Basically, Alana is trying to groom the hospital for a potential buyer, and the best way to do that is by making sure the ship is tight, and that certain expensive parts of the hospital are cut out … including the trauma center. While April is surely not done fighting to save it (and save one of the ways in which she genuinely helps the most), this is an uphill battle.
As for most of the other stories this week, they were a little bit more procedural. Arizona tried to use her own disability to get another patient off of her feet, while Cristina had to teach Leah a pretty valuable lesson: that while it may not be the best move to make medically, sometimes you have to allow your patient’s religious beliefs to take precedence. There was also some Meredith baby drama, but at the end of the day is still does not feel as though Ellen Pompeo’s character has anything to worry about … at least not yet.
