Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I know you didn't wake up today expecting this was how your first day was going to go. You thought you would get to reattach an arm or observe brain surgery. Instead you helped save the life of a deer. You can bitch and complain about it or you can adjust your expectations. Cause like it or not you're stuck with me and I'm the kind of doctor who lets a little kid convince her she can do the impossible.

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

I love this episode. It's awesome to see our interns become residents, and get to take control of things, including their own interns.

In this episode, intern year is over, for most of the beloved interns, sadly for George, he must repeat his intern year. Everyone is now residents, and have their own interns, which you can be sure that they're enjoying it. One of the new interns turns out to be Meredith's half sister, on her Fathers' side, and Lexi, the sister, is trying to figure out how to tell her. She and George also have become good friends, as he is the only one who knows about her relationship to Meredith. Callie struggles with her new position as Chief Resident, whilst Miranda is still a bit annoyed about her getting the job. And we lose someone this season. Dr. Burke does not come back, after the wedding disaster.

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