Meredith deals with her mother's illness and with her complicated relationship with the Shepherds. There is still hope for Addison and Derek, because he didn't sign the divorce papers, but he himself does not know what to do. Meanwhile, Burke and Cristina also deal with their relationship, and Izzie and Alex go on a date. But Alex is nervous because he might lose his M.D., so he does not act as himself.
