GREY’S ANATOMY “Don’t Deceive Me (Please Don’t Go) Review

GREY'S ANATOMY "Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go)"

GREY’S ANATOMY “Don’t Deceive Me (Please Don’t Go)” Season 7 Episode 13 – This week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy dealt with the preservation of life both at the beginning and at the end. As Callie, Mark and Arizona deal with Callie’s irrational fear that she is losing the baby (with the introduction of the new OB/GYN), Derek and Karev begin the Alzheimer’s trials to see if they can stop the aging process. It was quite the contrast to see three people celebrating new life while watching two spouses deal with the possibility that their spouses, although still alive, will be dead to them, so to speak.

I am with Karev. How emotionally draining would it be to work on a clinical for two years with so many people and so many desperate spouses, half of which only get placebos? I do not think the placebo effect works so well on this type of patient. Although I was expecting the second patient’s directive to be a placebo, it was still so sad when I read it. Karev is also right about Meredith. It does take a special person to deal with patients in the clinical, although I do not necessarily agree about the twisted part.

Let’s talk Twitter. Do you think Twitter paid for all of that talk? I get the idea of showing how new social media can be used in businesses, even hospitals. However, it seemed that it was talked about incessantly, especially Owen’s lecture about how the government uses it with GPS. It was great that the tweeting saved their patient’s life and that the Chief got hooked so quickly (although I still don’t think he gets the actual concept), but I am not sure how I feel about a surgeon tweeting during surgery. Although the surgeon isn’t doing the typing, isn’t it still distracting? What do you think?

Other things I liked about this episode was how willing Arizona was to be “in” Callie’s plan even though she did not have enough time to process everything that had happened and was still angry at Callie. That is love. Unfortunately, I don’t think Sloan is going to find the same from Lexi. They just got over the last baby issue. I am upset because I love Mark and Lexi together.

I liked how Christina played Avery. Shame on him for hitting so low. Also, it appears that Christina’s experience turned her into a more sensitive physician with an actual bedside manner. If that sticks around, she will be a top surgeon in no time!

What did you think of tonight’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy? Do you think it was a good idea for Derek to recruit Meredith to help him on the clinical trials? Do you think Lexi will ever forgive Mark? What was your favorite quote? Mine is a toss up between “I am a hormone casserole” and “Don’t wait until this kid comes out all Sloanie”, both courtesy of Callie.
