Help, I’m Alive: A Review Of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 15 Episode 10

January 29, 20196 min read

Editor’s Note: This article contains spoilers from ABC’s medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 15 Episode 10.

Last week’s episode was a wild one with the aftermath of the storm, bombshells dropping, deaths, and messy love triangles. We can only hope for the calm after the storm but since this is “Grey’s Anatomy”, I don’t think that’s what we’ll be getting.

Though she was put on the backburner the last episode, this episode seemed to be focused on Catherine’s diagnosis of cancer. It hit many at the hospital hard, especially Jackson and Dr Weber. They were the two that she didn’t want to find out, but Meredith told them anyway. Catherine was very upset about this and kicked her off of her surgical team and even threatened her job at the hospital. Meredith was just trying to do the right thing, and it’s unfair for Catherine to treat her like this especially since she enlisted her help in the first place.

Meredith and Dr Lincoln aren’t getting along as well as Jo expected, who was the one who suggested they get together. They disagreed over how to treat a patient and over each other’s work ethic. There seems to be a bit of a power struggle between them, which would be toxic in a relationship. I don’t think that they are really suited for each other since they both have such dominant personalities. I still think Meredith should be with DeLuca but…

In the OR, Owen and DeLuca are about to start surgery on a woman when a nurse accidentally injected Owen’s IV with a paralytic, which he had because of his flu-like symptoms, instead of the patient’s IV. Even under the pressure of this intense situation, Owen took control of the situation and told the doctors what to do before the injection made him pass out. Owen is one of the strongest and level headed doctors in the hospital, and seeing him react that fast under pressure was inspiring. I think that him showing how he could handle this situation shows that he will be able to handle the tough situation with Teddy and Amelia.

Speaking of power couples, maybe Meredith and Dr Lincoln were getting along better than expected at the beginning of the episode. Dr Lincoln went to Meredith’s house to help with her Bailey’s birthday party and the way he helped set up and played with the kids was really cute. This makes the DeLuca, Dr Lincoln, Meredith love triangle even messier. It’s a bit strange though that after arguing at the hospital, Meredith would invite Dr Lincoln over to her house to help with Bailey’s birthday party, but as a single mom, she does need all the help she can get.

Owen has also finally realized that he wants to be with Amelia, but also wants to be there for Teddy and his baby. He gave Teddy his job as chief of trauma and told her he wants her to stay in Seattle. He finally is sacrificing something after Teddy sacrificed so much for him and I think that it’s great. He is also sticking with Amelia and their little family. I think that he made the right decision and I’m glad he’s going to be a father figure to Betty, Leo and the baby. I feel that he wasn’t completely clear to Teddy about wanting to be with Amelia, though. He told Teddy he wanted her to stay, but not that he wanted to be with Amelia. Hopefully, Teddy understood this so there’s not any confusion.

This episode ends with Catherine finally realizing the effects of her cancer and having a heated discussion with Jackson and Dr Weber. She didn’t want to tell them because she didn’t really want to come to terms with the fact that she has cancer. But now as she’s preparing to go into surgery soon, she needs all of the support she can get. Catherine is a very stubborn, but strong woman and character. She fought hard to be successful and have the platform that she has today. As a black woman, this struggle was even harder for her and she doesn’t want anything taking away her accomplishments, especially her cancer. In the next episode, she will be undergoing surgery and I am nervous and anxious to see the outcome. I feel that her surgeons haven’t been able to prepare enough for her surgery, but hopefully, we see a “Grey’s Anatomy” miracle.

Tune in next Thursday to watch Grey’s Anatomy on ABC at 8/7c!
