Will and Diane go to war when he learns that she's given an interview and told the reporter about the money he took from a client 10 years ago. He asks Kalinda to find some dirt on her as he plans her ouster from the firm. He calls a partners meeting and Alicia finds herself on the committee tasked to negotiate Diane's exit package. With Diane going, Will has a proposition for Alicia that may change her mind about leaving the firm. Meanwhile Alicia has been working with a couple, Cathy and Ryan and their surrogate. They get bad news however from an amniocentesis but the surrogate, Tara, is refusing to have the pregnancy terminated. David Lee surprises Alicia by volunteering to help her out in the case - he's out to sue the hospital. At home, Alicia is worried about Grace who seems to be growing up very fast.

wrong information in the show.
14 October 2013 | by (MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA) – See all my reviews

As usual great acting and great story line. But as a high risk obstetrician who deals with Patau syndrome (pronounced as PA TO)your facts were horribly mistaken and uninformed. Patau's syndrome is caused by the fetus having 3 copies of chromosome 13, rather than 2 much like Downs syndrome is caused by 3 copies of chromosome 21 and Edward's syndrome is caused by 3 copies of chromosome 18. There is nothing that the doctor who did the amniocentesis could have done to cause this syndrome, and the suggestion that he did something to cause this syndrome is really and insult to our collective intelligence. I would think your script writers would have sought medical advice prior to going forward with it. If they did review this issue with a medical person and he/she gave you the go ahead, then you need too get rid of your medical adviser. Tell you what next time you have a medical issue, particularly pertaining to pregnant moms and their fetuses, drop me a line and I will set you straight. this is not artistic license.Please don't put out 2nd rate, misinformation. You are so much better than that. Devoted viewer of all 5 seasons. Tamerou Asrat M.D. FACOG. Maternal Fetal Medicine
