Dr. Meredith Grey: To be a good surgeon you have to think like a surgeon, emotions are messy, tuck them neatly away and step into a clean sterile room, where the procedure is simple, cut suture, and close. But sometimes your faced with a cut that won't heal, a cut that rips the stitches right open.

The One With Derek's Wife...
4 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's a great followup to the Season 1 Finale. It is just a very entertaining episode, and I really love watching it.

In this episode, Joe, the owner of the bar everyone goes to, collapses and needs to undergo a $200,000 surgery to survive. But doesn't want to do it because he can't afford to pay for it without losing his bar. But George finds a way for him to not pay for it, since it's a teaching hospital and he's technically donating his body to science. Meanwhile, Derek's wife, Addison, has come to put an end to Meredith and Derek's relationship. You can understand how surprised Meredith was to find out that he's married. Also, Dr. Webber is recovering from his operation and has appointed Dr. Burke as his replacement for the time being. And Meredith is very concerned about Christina's secret pregnancy.

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