  • 09/27 - The romance between Grey's Anatomy's Callie and Arizona will have to endure some not-so-divine intervention when Dr. Torres' father returns to Seattle -- with a "heavenly helper" in tow. Emmy Award winner Hector Elizondo will reprise his role as Mr. Torres in the fifth episode of the coming season, AOL TV has learned exclusively. Bringing about Dad's latest drop-by? His desire to make amends with the daughter he disowned last spring when he learned that she had taken a female lover. Though Callie and her father exchanged harsh words and parted ways back then -- forcing Callie to cede her status as a Trust Fund Baby -- Mr. Torres is now determined to heal the rift. So he's enlisted a bit of help from "above" ... yep, he believes the work of a priest can right past wrongs. Source: AOL

Grey's Anatomy Episode Recap: "Invasion"

Oct 16, 2009 09:09 AM ET by Adam Bryant

Watch Episode

In this episode of Grey's Anatomy, the new doctors from Mercy West invade Seattle Grace, putting everyone on edge. Izzie assists Bailey with a patient awaiting a kidney transplant, Lexie bonds with a burglar who broke his back, and Cristina continues to deal with her dissatisfaction with not being able to pursue cardiothoracic surgery. Meanwhile, Callie's dad is back in town, and he's brought along a priest to help him "pray away the gay." Plus: The Chief gets some instructions from HR on how to properly fire staff members, and before the episode ends, one of our original interns gets a pink slip. Who's scrubbing out? Let's find out!

Since we were introduced to four brand new doctors this evening (and I sometimes have trouble keeping up with the ones we already know), I've decided to break the episode down based on those four stories.

Dr. Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams)
Avery makes a quick first impression by suggesting the doctors be assigned to zones, a technique used at Mercy West. Dr. Hunt approves despite Cristina's objections and as luck would have it, Yang gets paired with Avery. Their patient is brought into the ER with a leg laceration. Turns out, the patient had fallen in love with his buddy's 19-year-old daughter, and his buddy showed his gratitude with a knife. Yang shows up Avery with some quick hands, as she stops a bleeder before he can even get close to the action.

Avery gets his moment, however, when the young girl's father comes after their patient with a hammer. Avery prevents the attack by tackling the man and holding him down until security can deal with him. Worse, Avery (and all the Mercy Westers for that matter) decides to work through lunch, and because he was in the ER when the patient's condition worsened, he gets to scrub in instead of Cristina.

Yang reports back to Meredith, who is still in recovery from giving up her liver. Cristina goes into hysterics and tells Meredith she has no idea what she's fighting for. She spends her days chasing surgeries she doesn't care about, just because she misses the thrill of cutting people open. Worse, she's angry at Owen for going out of his way to not show favoritism. "I miss Burke," she says, noting that when he was there, she held hearts every day. (She also downplays the favoritism he showed her, which, despite her skills as a surgeon, I find laughable.) Ultimately, Cristina is tired of fighting.

Dr. Reed Adamson (Nora Zehetner)
Hey, look, Eden from Heroes! Reed doesn't make friends when she refuses to remove her belongings from the cubby in the residents' lounge reserved in George's memory. She and Karev argue back and forth over who will take the lead on their patient. Karev hides the chart and steals Reed's lab results to make the quick diagnosis. However, Reed also left out some of the lab information so she could make a better diagnosis, which earned her a spot in the surgery to remove a blockage in the patient's carotid artery.

Karev doesn't give up so easily and cancels the surgery when the patient begins to say random things that suggest Reed's diagnosis was incorrect. The two continue to argue until the patient's daughter has had enough: "Your job is to heal people," she says. Karev finally gives in and tells Reed she can have the surgery... after she notifies Arizona Robbins, the head of neuro. Ha!

Dr. April Kepner (Sarah Drew)
Kepner is teamed with Lexie, and the two of them treat a burglar who sustained some serious back injuries during his most recent home invasion-turned-beating. (With a golf club!) Lexie impresses Kepner with her great memory, but Kepner suggests a treatment option that Dr. Shepherd prefers, giving yet another Mercy Wester an advantage. The burglar, however, tells Lexie she has to find Kepner's open window her weakness and attack it. Lexie refuses to stoop to that level, but when the patient steals Kepner's trusty notebook, Lexie thinks again.

Inside the book, Kepner writes inspirational pick-me-ups and also worries about some cosmetic surgery she's recently had. When she goes the extra mile of also prepping the patient for surgery which was supposed to be Lexie's contribution Little Grey lets Kepner know that she knows her secrets. Ultimately, however, Lexie realizes that Kepner has low self-esteem, which is evidenced by the tear stains in her notebook. The pick-me-ups made her feel better, and Lexie feels rotten having taken advantage. She later admits that even though the she doesn't like Kepner, she crossed a line.

Dr. Charles Denman (Robert Baker)
Charles, who works with Izzie and Bailey on a kidney transplant patient, seems like the only decent guy in the bunch. Izzie is hesitant to trust him, but he charms her with his story about his crush on Reed. Yes, Izzie instantly thinks of him as a new George and even offers up the pass code to the research library as a friendly gesture. That all goes away when she hears him telling his Mercy West buddies that he's already made Izzie his "surgical bitch." He apologizes by saying it's how things were done at Mercy West, which sets Izzie off even more. "We support each other. We throw ourselves in front of buses... You will never measure up to the people we've lost."

However, Izzie's frustration is detrimental. She accidentally orders the wrong dosage of drugs that stops her patient's heart. Because the patient is not stable enough to get the kidney she's waited three years for, she now only has three days to live. Bailey comes down hard on Izzie, reminding us once again that the Nazi is back this season.

Izzie is paged to the Chief's office, where she is the first to hear the HR-mandated speech about why she's being fired. She protests that it's illegal to fire her for having cancer, but the Chief says Hunt, Shepherd and Alex all voiced concerns about Izzie's stamina and state of mind. (HR interjection: The decision was strictly budgetary.) "Please don't take this away from me," Izzie says. "I don't have anything left." And she really doesn't: After hearing that Alex spoke out against her, she leaves him a note saying she's leaving him and disappears.

"Jesus is my savior, Daddy."
In the night's one non-merger related plot line, Callie's dad (Hector Elizondo) flies 3,000 miles to pray with his daughter in hopes she will reject her new lesbian lifestyle. Arizona encourages Callie to hear him out, because, unlike Arizona, Callie once loved men and the change was drastic for her family to accept. Mr. Torres quotes the Bible and hurls some brimstone, but Callie quotes Jesus' message of acceptance and storms out of the room, furious that her father judges her.

Arizona talks to Mr. Torres, explaining that her father was a military man (she was named after USS Arizona, which was sunk in the Pearl Harbor attack, during which her grandfather saved 19 lives before drowning) who still accepted his daughter. She says that her father didn't bend, but he bent for her, because she was his daughter the good man in a storm he raised her to be. Arizona says she loves Callie and will protect her, but that she doesn't need it because she is the daughter Mr. Torres raised. Finally, Mr. Torres gives Callie his blessing, only with the promise that someday a wedding and grandkids might be in his and Mrs. Torres' future.

What did you think of the new doctors? Were you shocked to see Izzie fired? And what's Alex's next move? Do you think Cristina has really given up? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
