Owen is well-prepared for Cristina’s predictable panic attack on this their first morning of married life. He gives her a granola bar followed by some soapy sex in the shower. Owen even washes her hair. He’s always wanted to do that. Not sure why. The one other thing Owen thinks his new wife needs is the chance to get a little blood on her hands. So, Owen and Teddy convince the Chief that Cristina is ready to scrub in for surgery.
Dr. Perkins sees right through Meredith’s fake tears and will NOT clear her for surgery. Meredith is avoiding Derek. It’s not because she still hasn’t told him she was pregnant and miscarried. No, she’s steering clear because he’s ticked she left him in jail after another reckless speeding adventure. Plus, he smells like pee.
