ABC‘s Grey’s Anatomy Everything I Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right TV Show Review. Grey’s Anatomy: Season 10, Episode 23: Everything I Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right will be the second to the last time we see the infamous Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Her character has come full circle and is on her way to head a research hospital in Switzerland. The official goodbye is next week.
At the top, Cristina interviewed a plethora of potential candidates for Dr. Jeff Russell’s (Dominic Hoffman) vacancy. It was obvious and clear that not a single doctor would be able to fill Cristina Yang’s shoes. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) said that none of the doctors she met with could ever be her, and he would be right. Cristina and Owen shared a tender kiss and he asked her not to leave, at least until she (ultimately) had to go. It is a sweet moment, but this is not the relationship that will pull at our heartstrings when Cristina leaves next week. It is the relationship she has had with Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) that will be highlighted…and the one we will have the most feeling about.
It is difficult in life to find your “person.” How the show handles Meredith and Cristina’s goodbye will be a feat. The writers will need to handle it with thoughtful balance. Too heavy a hand will be corny, and too light a hand will not honor the intensity of their relationship.
Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) opened up to Meredith about not wanting to leave Seattle. (Clearly we will be seeing much more of her next season.) And with Cristina gone, we will likely see Meredith grow closer to Amelia.
Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) told Meredith that he met with the POTUS and was offered a position at the National Institute of Health. I can’t see the family packing up to move to Washington D.C., but it makes for some good transitional drama for the Shepherds.
Back at the hospital, Braden’s parents (guest stars Bresha Webb and Mark Adair- Rios) considered charging Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) with assault and battery when she came clean about having proceeded with the deactivated-HIV procedure against their wishes. Braden’s parents changed their minds when Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) stepped forward and took the fall, saying that she did not communicate their wishes to Bailey.
Meanwhile, Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) and April Kepner (Sarah Drew) tried to keep their pregnancy a secret at the hospital. It’s only a matter of time before Jackson’s mother finds out. I see Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) playing a huge role in the hospital in the next couple of years. And a reconciliation with Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) seems inevitable.
Lastly, Callie Torres (Sarah Ramirez) broke down to Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) about finding out that she wouldn’t be able to carry another baby. They realized they had everything they needed at the end of this episode and were grateful.
We did not spend a lot of time with Cristina this episode. We were perhaps given a glimpse of a future Grey’s. This was a powerful set-up episode for what is sure to be an emotional finale.
