A man is brought in with 17 gunshot wounds. The shooter: His six-year-old daughter. Meredith treats the little girl, who has a cut on the face. It becomes clear that the guy’s an abusive scumbag. When the girl’s mom tries to make her apologize to the dad, Meredith rips into the woman. She tells the mother, “At least she did something. Which is more than I can say for you.”
The Chief pulls Meredith aside. They have a huge fight, half about the case and half about their own issues. The Chief forbids Meredith from speaking to the little girl and her mom. He even threatens to suspend her. Mer tells Der that if the Chief’s at their wedding, she won’t be. Harsh!
