Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 “Two Against One” Review


It’s simply not possible for everyone to be in a good place at the same time on Grey’s Anatomy. I get it. It’s a drama, but there are a few doctors around Grey Sloan Memorial that could really use a win right now.

First up – Miranda Bailey. Bailey hasn’t not been her usual assertive, self-confident self since the death of her patients last year due to faulty gloves. She fell out with Richard, saved his life and then got fired from his service. Last week, her husband surprised her with the news that he’s quit his surgical residency so that he can be at home with his family. This would typically be welcome news, but Bailey is simply not in the right mental state to deal with such drastic change right now. By the episode’s end, Bailey appeared to be demonstrating signs of OCD. I initially thought she was overcompensating during surgery because of deaths last season, but there was clearly much more at work. I’m glad that her husband is back, as he appears to have a calming effect on her. I don’t like to see Bailey struggle, but it will be interested to learn more about the origins of the issue and how she’ll cope. I fully expect it to be a rocky road.

I think Bailey could certainly benefit from reconciling with Richard and spending a little time with him. Yes he repeats the same stories over and over again, but it is clear that he has regained his zest for life and for practicing medicine. It’s good to see him on the mend – maybe he’ll actually get to go home soon. Does anyone else find Catherine’s absence a little strange? I’m sure it’s just a casting/scheduling issue, but it is weird to spend so much screen time with him and never see her stop by to visit.

Bailey wasn’t the only one struggling last night. The twisted sisters are still on the outs and I don’t see reconciliation happening anytime soon after what became of Meredith’s liver. For the second time now, Meredith has been called a terrible doctor. Of course Yang and Karev aren’t talking about her abilities overall; however, someone needs to help Meredith gain a little perspective. Her patient care can’t be compromised by her desire to prove her friends wrong.

Aside from personal and professional struggles, last night’s Grey’s Anatomy provided a few fun moments with various pairs of characters. I enjoyed watching Derek and Jackson fix the face of modern medicine. I even enjoyed Callie’s wholly inappropriate interview with Owen’s new girlfriend. Speaking of which, I think it was very wise of her to turn down the job offer.

Overall, this week’s episode was pretty entertaining. I’m glad to see Richard getting better and I like the drive that Christina brings out in Shane – let’s hope they keep it strictly professional. I’ve decided to mentally reject all scenes or references to Arizona and Leah. I simply don’t get it and it is certain to end very, very poorly. What did you think of this week’s episode?
