The boards are over. The fifth years are physically and emotionally spent. No one has any idea how they did. Catherine lets Richard know that at least one resident from Seattle Grace Mercy West has failed. The question is… WHO?
We jump back in time to observe some of the sessions. Cristina is beyond fidgety thanks to the plodding pace set by her elderly inquisitor. Meredith is still trying to keep from vomiting thanks to her lingering stomach flu. Jackson is still trying to process the fact that his mom slept with Richard. April is still trying to process the fact that she slept with Jackson. As for Alex, he's still trying to get to an exam that's already started.
Alex finally arrives to learn that he's already failed the first of the three sessions. That means he needs perfect scores in the remaining two. Speaking of being perfect, April demands that she have all the information on a case from her questioners even though it's time to move on. She's sweating up a storm, as evidenced by all the moisture seeping through her shirt. Jackson continues to have mommy issues. As for Cristina and Meredith, one is trying to contain her rage while the other is trying not to lose her lunch.
