Lexie and Jackson have been gettin’ hot and heavy all over the house. April finds it tough to do laundry while her roomies are mounting each other atop the washing machine. So, if you see her wearing the same outfit two days in a row it’s NOT because she’s been spending the night with Dr. Stark. Alex thinks that’s where their odd little relationship is headed though. Speaking of Alex, he’s living in a trailer outside the hospital so he can get first dibs on surgeries to lock down that open chief resident spot.
Bailey and Jackson treat a diabetic woman who recently had a tumor removed. Her frustrated husband can only be calmed by Eli. Bailey wants her patient to be first on the list for the Chief’s new trial. The problem is they don’t have FDA approval yet. Eli asks about the risks before Bailey has a chance to get to them. This ticks her off, but a defiant Eli says he’s only looking out for his patient.
The Chief makes the call to do a cell transplant even though the FDA waiver hasn’t come through yet. All goes well and the approval comes in after the fact. Hey. At least it came in! As for Bailey and Eli, they had a bit of a bumpy day professionally. Nurse assures doctor that all will be smoothed over once they get back to his place.
