I really thought Cristina was going to win, everyone thought she was going to win and then the envelope was opened and I had a feeling it wasn’t going to be her name. Cristina was disappointed as well. She really thought she was going to win too. She’s young, she could still be nominated again. It’s an honor just to be nominated.
It was nice that Meredith and Owen showed up to support her. They knew that even though she kept saying she wanted to do it alone, she really wanted them there.
A lot of things happened in the overnight shift. Meredith was freaking out during surgery about where her kids were, and they were safe with Arizona and Callie. Jackson and April were realizing that they didn’t really think this whole marriage thing through and disagreed on a lot of very important issues. Callie and Arizona were choosing who would carry their next child. Cristina was ignoring how nervous she was by operating on two kids that she had operated on before. Then Derek was trying to handle everything that was on his plate.
Meredith and Derek have realized that something has to give, they just don’t know what that is. Arizona realized that she doesn’t want to carry their baby. April realized she made a mistake and went to stay with Callie and Arizona. Cristina realized how freaked out she really was.
This episode reminded me of the episode of Friends were where they were up all night. A lot happens, but at the same time nothing at all happens. It kind of put everything in perspective of how far they’ve come since the beginning and how much everything has changed.
A lot of things have changed and next week we will say goodbye to Cristina Yang, will anyone be able to keep from crying?
