Grey's Anatomy Sneak Peeks: Who's Copping a Feel With Mer?! Plus: Owen Lays a Guilt Trip

Grey’s Anatomy’s Meredith is about to go to second base — and not in the on-call room, and not with her husband!

In the first of these two clips from this Thursday’s episode of the ABC drama, a male patient gets a bit handsy with the beautiful Dr. Grey, though things may not be as they seem. (That said, we’ll totally allow the assessment of “Nice”!)

In the second clip, Owen advises his staff to try not to be distracted by the lawsuit brewing with the docs involved in the plane crash. But from the guilt-ridden looks on some faces, Dr. Hunt perhaps does not yet know he is now being hunted, by the crash victims’ lawyers, for sending his docs on the ill-fated trip.

Elsewhere in the relationships-centric hour, Cristina and Owen continue to figure out their new sitch, and Bailey squabbles with Ben over their imminent nuptials and Jackson is preoccupied by a shocking situation with April that is, like, totally spoiled by the current promos.

    Haha that’s a pretty awkward condition, whatever it is!

  2. Stefan says:

    Isn’t Owen their friend, and Christina’s husband, why are they going after him?

    • Vanessa says:

      the lawyers want them to go after owen

    • Carrie says:

      Let’s keep in mind that Owen chose to ignore his phone messages the day of the crash and had he paid attention to the many calls regarding the missing docs, a rescue mission would have started earlier and resulting deaths and injuries may have had a different outcome, so one could find fault in Owen’s handling of his job duties.That being said, I think fault lies mainly with the charter company, but there is more drama if it becomes an internal issue at the hospital. Either way, I hope Shondra does not drag it out for too many episodes, lawyering is for another show.

      • Annie-C says:

        Totally agree with you. Owen isn’t responsible for the crash but he did make it worse by ignoring his calls.

        • Pokey says:

          In real life, someone would have called the main hospital number and had Owen paged. Or even called his assistant. Shonda’s world makes no sense.

      • Sarah says:

        What would him answering the phone do? The plane had crashed.

        • Yaiza says:


        • Kate says:

          Gotten to Mark to get him appropriate medical care sooner and saved his life, gotten to Lexi before she was eaten and not traumatized the rest as much, gotten to Arizona before things progressed so far and saved her leg. In medicine the sooner you act the better the outcome

          • rmb55 says:

            No, they were out there for a week–he got the message within a work day. It was still, what, 6 days or so before they were found. Earlier voicemail checking would not likely have shortened that time frame. But, no question, the missing plane would have been eated mor urgently by the airports and other hospital. No one would just leave messages for hours.

      • Ninna says:

        I’m sorry carrie but that’s not acurate . The minute a plane goes off the radar the protocol is activated and that triggers an immediate response of civil protection. They have the responsability of start the rescue mission not Owen or the Hospital. So, he answer or not answering his calls in reality wouldn’t change anything.
        He’s being sued as the representant of their employers. The person who put them in that plane in the course of their work at SGMH. He is not guilty but he may be considered accountable. Guilt and accountability are two different juridical figures. He’s not guilty of the plane crash but they were flying to the hospital service, so they might bear the costs of this debacle. Because if they were not serving the hospital, they would not be in the difficult situation in which they find themselves.

  3. Tia says:

    lol, the Mer sneak. Can’t wait for this episode.

  4. LMSO says:

    My point exactly Stefan. I suppose the lawyers are going to pursue the biggest potential payout, which is supposedly the hospital (and as Chief of Surgery Owen will get caught up in that). But the bigger points are, yes, he IS their friend and husband. And even if personal relationships are left out of this entirely, how exactly are Owen and the hospital responsible for the crash? Those surgeons were put on a plane in good faith in order to travel to another location to save someone’s life. I see no liability on the hospital’s part whatsoever. The charter company, perhaps, but sometimes an accident is just that…an accident. I find this storyline to be really lame and I fear it will go for many episodes. Pity. It’s been such a good season so far. Hopefully Owen at least will be in the clear sooner than later. Hard to see how he and Cristina can make any progress in their relationship if she’s suing him.

    • Simon says:

      I don’t think they want to Show the hospital as guilty by any means, but the hospital is responsible for its employes for the time they are at work. So i guess this just really is an insurance thing, like “accident while Working”. At least this is the way i like to look at it. :D i have to say, i am really enjoying this season, espescially with this storyline which feels different from what they have done before. (All of this is from me being a GERMAN, so that’s just a guess judged by what would probably be accurate here.)

    • RUCookie says:

      Actually I could see an arguement here – say the hospital made a decision to charter a plane instead of sending them on commercial air to save money, or the hospital made a decision to put them on the “cheapest bid” plane… then they did make a decision that affected the safety and well-being of their employees (whom they have a reasonable expection of responsibilty).

    • lovemesomeowen says:

      I see what you all are saying. Technically they were at work, even through there was no bad intention behind the hosptial putting them on the flight. I guess it just strikes me as ironic that when the hospital probably *should* have been sued (when an armed gunman entered the hosptial in the S6SF, killing and wounding a bazillion people) it was not. But now the hospital IS being sued more, I think, because it would make a twisty, dramatic plot device than because it would actually happen. Having said that, this is GA where people put their hands in the body cavities of people bearing bombs, ferry boats crash catastrophically, heroines are medically dead for a looong time with no brain damage, etc. so we’ll call it Dramatic License and I’ll try to view it more positively since, as Simon said, at least it’s new. p.s. I happen to think that Owen is well-aware that he is part of the lawsuit but as usual he is choosing to handle it professionally and stay above the fray…at least in the morning meeting. Here’s hoping he and Cristina can work things out.

      • Ninna says:

        The story is being written to recover Owen to fans eyes. Cris will sue him. He will know that , but will forgive that ‘sin’ of her and will be seen has such a good man that takes everything from that horrible Cristina ans still loves her so much. For me that’s the point of this story line. erase from people’s minds, Owen of season 8.

  5. Kiki says:

    Another brilliant Shonda storyline…not.

    • SSS says:

      Oh, please… You don’t get to judge other people’s work until you are in their place… It’s hard to keep millions of viewers interested for freakin’ 9 years. I think it would be really entertaining to see what YOU would come up for. Besides, you never know how a story line might turn out, until you see it. But, judging peoples work while the only thing you do is watching TV with a bowl of chips next to you is just wrong. People like Shonda know how to do their jobs and ungrateful “fans” like you just DON’T get to comment on their work like that!

      • Kiki says:

        Actually – I worked in TV for many years. So don’t judge me.

        • Maya says:

          You worked in TV. So? Did you make a hit show? Did you got millions of money? Did you even wrote something decent in your whole life? I don’t think so. The fact that you worked in TV doesn’t mean anything. As for SSS, agree. Some people think that they can judge verything and everyone!

        • Alex says:

          I find it very hard to believe that you worked in any position of authority at all.

      • Jeri says:

        I have always thought Shonda does more harm than good with her shows. She pulls some outrageous stunt plot and then has to explain it to people. She should make TV viewers can judge on its own merit, not her explanations for why it happened. I’ve watched Greys since it started, in spite of Shonda. Good TV does not need a plot explanation.

        • Dee says:

          And since when YOU know what good TV is? Pffff…. some people are just SO full of themselves. Like that chick above who “worked on TV” and you the “genius”. And people who watch GA can’t judge on their own merits because they are simply very busy complaining all the time. If you think Shonda does not make a good work you can always give up on the show. And what do you mean “in spite” of Shonda? The show wouldn’t be here without Shonda. And tell me one time that Shonda explained a storyline to people. One time. People LOVE to complain.

  6. Tara says:

    Who would the docs have originally received compensation from? If the other hospital, the charter company, the plane manufacturer, part manufacturer, etc offered them money to settle then maybe the lawyers should go after that company.

  7. gary says:

    Ya it doesnt make sense who offered them the first settlement they turned downed? It was SGMW so why are they going after them now? Why not go after who offered them the settlement and why sue the hospital you work at when you got a big offered from someone else? It is a dumb storyline

  8. abby says:

    LOL. Yes “nice” and Mer gets a medical mystery to solve. Arizona’s first day back should be interesting.

  9. Sara says:

    So, that means that Arizona can’t sue the hospital right? Because she forced herself on the plane. I mean, really, Arizona shouldn’t be suing anyone because she wasn’t SUPPOSED to be on the plane. She threw Alex off last minute, after all.
    I think this whole “sue the hospital” thing is such a ridiculous turn. As previous posters have said, there were other things that made more sense to sue about, ie the shooting rampage. This is just a silly way to dramatize an already captivating storyline and of course to make more drama for Owen and Cristina. Seriously, why aren’t the doctors speaking up and telling their lawyers to go after the charter company/plane manufacturers? They are just letting the lawyers run free, totally forgetting the fact that they are their employees.

    • Ninna says:

      ” Because she forced herself on the plane. I mean, really, Arizona shouldn’t be suing anyone because she wasn’t SUPPOSED to be on the plane.”

      The problem is that her employers didn’t opposed to that. Owen didn’t opposed to that. He was aware of the exchange of course he’s Chief. And he allowed it, so it’s his responsability.

  10. broncfanwa says:

    wait until the hospital’s lawyers decide to limit their liability in the future by not making these life-saving trips any more. then all of our happy little “save-the-worlders” will be hoist on their own petard.

    and, just coz i’m wondering, how on Earth is suing the hospital going to get to the bottom of how the crash actually happened, and possibly prevent future ones? wasn’t that what it was (supposedly) about?

  11. Diva says:

    From a lawyers POV, I understand why they are suing the hospital (they can get the most money from them compared to the company and the hospital is responsible for them while they work). But I hope Derek and them don’t go for it because it doesn’t make sense. It was never about the money to Derek and the others (except Callie) because it was all about trying to solve what went wrong, because they knew if they settled, the company would never investigate. So if they go after the hospital, then the company would still never solve it (unless they sue both, but they have no reason to go after the hospital). As for Callie, I don’t think she would ever do that and as long as she gets money in the end, I don’t think she should worry.

    • Susanna says:

      They all wanted the money the first time!!( not only Callie) it was because of Derek they did’nt withdraw it the first time because he told them he saw the plane and he implicate to go for bigger fish.

    • Ninna says:

      It still doesn’t make sense!
      It’s not to the company’s duty to make the due diligences to investigate. That task belongs to any statal institution, right? Obviously, if it was up to the company they weren’t never interested in investigate. Even if they had taken the money from the Charter Cª it would have been an investigation led by an external institution that has this function . The Cª can’t control that. Their fear was that after the investigation done, it would be found that they truly were guilty of a serious mistake and the amount of Money they would have to pay to the survivors would turn out impossible.
      The lawyers knowing that thought, suing for suing lets suing the one which has more juice. SGMH.
      So, they went for the bigger fish.
      That’s why for me this new hunt for the Money doesn’t make any sense. Suing or not suing the investigation would be carried on! So, contrieved drama for all especially C/O.

  12. Ace says:

    I usually accept ways of stirring up conflict as what they are, but this seems just a touch too much out of character for everyone involved, especially because they wanted to sue the charter company originally to force an investigation. Hopefully the ensuing drama is well-acted enough to make this seem realistic; the facial expressions of those suing in the clip seem

    But. My hope is that this will somehow lead to Owen being fired / stepping down from being chief and Bailey becoming the new chief, because that is something that would cause all kinds of hilarious and dramatic material.

  13. smitty says:

    Who is paying for the lawyers? Did anyone else think they were hired by the hospital?

    • LoveGreys says:

      No one is paying for the lawyers at this point. They probably took the case on a contingency, that is the most common arrangment in personal injury cases like this. The lawyers will get some percentage of the money they win for the victicms plus their out-of-pocket expenses to bring the lawsuit.

  14. Ann says:

    Thank goodness ABC finally put up a sneak peek of April and Jackson. They had peeks of other storylines up ages ago. Too cruel, ABC, to keep me waiting like that!

  15. lisapizza says:

    no!that wasn’t awkward
