The One With The Patient/Surgeon Relationship...
24 November 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I liked this episode. I didn't love it, and here's why: I honestly hate Denny, he is super annoying, and I just do not like him. As an actor, he's a good one, but his character, is as I said, super annoying. I hate that he, and Izzie have a thing, and what's even worse is that this isn't a short-lived thing.

In this episode, Izzie starts to develop feelings for one of her patients. A man named Denny Duquette, who is serious need of a new heart. But relationships between patients and surgeons are out of the question, understandably. Meanwhile, George treats a girl, who turns out to be an inter-sex person. She has testicles, where her ovaries are meant to be. Addison tells the girls parents, who want to remove them without telling their daughter, but Addison refuses, thank God. How freaking horrible that? You can't just change someone completely without their consent, even if they don't know what they would be missing. George was told not to tell the girl, but he can't comply with the order. The girl eventually ends up becoming a boy. Good for her, or, him, I should say.

Best part of the episode: Addison Shephard.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
