Before the day went to hell in a handbasket, Webber (X) presented his project, the pen that detects cancer. Buckle in, because this turns into the kind of long-winded story you only tell people over brunch. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) gets cookie high and cuts a patient open before Mer and Wilson (Camilla Luddington) find her and take over. Except Bailey smashes Mer's hand in the swinging doors, so Wilson is stuck doing a gastrectomy (to remove the stomach of a guy with cancer) alone. She's waffling, second-guessing Bailey's surgery plan and her own instincts while Mer barks at her from the corner of the operating room. Then: blammo! Wilson realizes that they need Webber's prototype and she can know for sure whether or not his stomach tissue has cancerous cells.
Hunt (Kevin McKidd) is trying to foster fail with a six-month-old and high Karev (Justin Chambers) along for the ride because Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) didn't want to leave him among her very expensive lab toys. He has an existential crisis, they steal baby stuff from Meredith's house, and I'd like to know how he's going to handle the baby situation during and after his next 36-hour shift as a single parent. The look of relief on his face when Amelia agrees to stay for their first night together tells me this is going to be a bumpy road.
