Piece of My Heart
Season 4 | Episode 13 | Aired 05/1/08
Addison gets up to speed on some of the changes that have occurred since she’s been away. The laundry list of breakups includes Bailey and her husband as well as Callie and George. Addison wonders if Callie and Erica are a couple. This freaks Callie out. So much so that she goes home with McSteamy. Hey, there are worse ways to deal with a sudden bout of self-doubt!
The most surprising breakup, of course, is the Mer-Der debacle. Derek gets trapped in the elevator with Meredith, Addison and Rose at the same time. We were busting. Mark is highly amused, too. He taunts Derek by saying, “I bet you wish you’d taken the stairs right about now.” At Joe’s, Addison tells Meredith, “I want to kick your ass so badly right now.” At first we didn’t understand why but then Addison explains it’s for letting Derek get away.
Despite the Chief’s offer to hire her back, Addison leaves Seattle to return to her new life in Santa Monica. Yes, things change.
