WoW in multiple points!
17 July 2013 | by (Montréal) – See all my reviews

This episode was awesome. It's strange that people don't rate it better, 'cause I just see good things in this one. I'm agree with all the decision who're taken. About Yang who give the solo surgery to Karev, who's deserve it a lot, 'cause it's true that of all the arguments the residents give her to do the surgery, he's the only one who talk about skills and how he will operate. I'm really impress about the way Alex grow up. He opens his heart for the first time, and I'm impress about Izzie who don't reject him even if she lives a two-side love story (really weird this thing with "ghost" Denny, but i think all this craziness is a tumor-talking, 'cause when someone have brain tumor, he could have hallucination and fake memories)

Good for Yang, she lose a surgery, but win a really great moment with Hunt and we see her opens her heart too. It's kind of wonderful the 2 heartless people of the show are the 2 only one who open up in the episode.

Good for Lexie too, about all the teaching stuff with Sloan (and all his strange morality for a change... but I found weird that he slept with his best friend's wife, but don't want to pervert the young half-sister of his best friend's lover... I think the worst part of all this adultery with Montgomery is that he barely lose his friend... good point for him)

And, my last point is about George, how he is the most observant character in the show... who see how strange's Izzie's behavior, when he sees her talk to herself and so on...

A really good one!
