Meredith has a hostile uterus. It’s what caused her miscarriage. Derek tries to cheer her up by reminding her that there’s a treatment. But Meredith is hung up on the label that’s been attached to her…you know. She says, “How would you feel if she called your penis angry or snide?” Good point.
Meredith treats a woman who has as fatal genetic condition. The case has her thinking about her own mortality. She asks Cristina to take some blood so she can get tested for the Alzheimer’s gene. It’s time she knew one way or the other. Derek and Meredith know that whatever happens be it hostile uteruses…. Alzheimer’s… or maybe even a new baby; they’ll get through it together.
