Our favorite brilliant neurosurgeon, Dr. Derek Shepherd, is hiding in the woods. He’s smack in the middle a crisis of confidence because of the many patients he’s lost. The big blow-up with Meredith also weighs heavy on his mind. The Chief is at a loss, so Bailey takes it upon herself to send Callie, then Owen, out to talk some sense into Derek. But misery loves company. Now three of Seattle Grace’s top docs drinking their pain away in the great outdoors!
Mark throws himself into his work after his fistfight with Derek. He preps for a rare and prestigious face transplant surgery. The patient is a sweet, young guy named Dave, who happens to be missing half of his face. This leads some of the Seattle Grace team to nickname him “Blowhole.” Izzie take exception to the moniker. She snaps in front of the patient, forcing Mark to kick her off of the case.
