Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 “Everything I Try To Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right” Review

Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 23 Everything I Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right (6)

Previously on Grey’s Anatomy . . .

– Dr. Bailey gave a patient a stem cell treatment using deactivated HIV against his parents’ wishes.

– Cristina accepted the professional opportunity of a life time.

– The interns learned that one of them is on the chopping block.

– Lots of baby talk – hypothetical babies, actual babies, plans to conceive babies.

I’m going to miss Cristina Yang. Her reaction to Bailey’s confession about Braden reminded me of why I love the character so much. It was equally funny to watch Bailey tell Jackson and Owen how Cristina reacted to her disclosure. It wasn’t so funny hearing that Braden’s parents not only wanted to take Bailey’s license, but they were also making allegations of assault and battery. Jason George did an excellent job in the scene where Owen broke that news. I was glad that Bailey got to see Braden emerge from the bubble into the arms of his mother.

Just when I thought I couldn’t be any more annoyed by the Jackson/April scenes, we had to watch Jackson share the news about the wee baby Avery in front of Stephanie. That felt like unnecessary drama in a show that is abundant in it. It should not have taken an appeal to Jackson’s parental instincts for him to know that Braden’s parents would want to have his labs run again before feeling comfortable taking him home.

Unsurprisingly, the interns did not take the news about one of them being fired well. Leah attempted to eat her way through the stress. Jo broke out in a nasty case of stress hives. Stephanie, who planned to keep her head down, found herself caught up in Bailey-gate. And poor, poor Shane. Leah and Stephanie managed to have a good few good moments despite the stress. Leah came up with a solution for a very gassy patient and Stephanie’s quick thinking helped the hospital and Bailey sidestep a lawsuit. Unfortunately for Leah, she’s not surgeon material and by the episode’s end, the program was down one intern.

Other thoughts and observations . . .

Did Callie tell Jo to check herself before she wrecked herself? Ha!

Private practice has made Alex quite the jerk ass. I understand that Shane botched his father’s surgery, but using Shane’s meltdown against him was just cruel. Looks like getting the big check isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.

The farting, burping, reference to a patient as a cancer dancer and the term bionic butthole/magnetic butthole was just too much.

I love the Amelia/Meredith bonding.

As soon as Callie bumped into Jackson and April on her way to her ob-gyn appointment, I suspected she would receive some bad news.

Very exciting news for Derek, but his next step is not necessarily Meredith’s next step.

I hope that Owen can find gratifying, lasting happiness in his personal life next season.

What did you think of this week’s Grey’s Anatomy? While you sound off below, I’m going to go listen to Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, Michael Jackson’s Pretty Young Thing and Jump by the Pointer Sisters. Hopefully the originals will purge the covers I had to endure during last night’s episode.
