April Needs a New Doctor

When Arizona sees a possible problem during April's sonogram, April flips out. She attacks Arizona for not finding the issue sooner, and demands an MRI so they can find out for sure if there's something wrong. Arizona reluctantly performs the procedure, which confirms that April and Jackson's baby is completely healthy. They're overjoyed, and April apologizes for being crazy, but Arizona offers her a list of new doctors. She can't be April's doctor and her friend, and she'd rather be her friend.

Stephanie Choose Surgery Over Love

Although she's only been seeing MS patient Kyle (Wilmer Valderrama) for a short time, Stephanie has grown attached. When he shows signs of a new hand tremor, Amelia decides to operate. She removes Edwards from his case, sending her to the waiting room like any other family member. The surgery goes well, but the experience reminds Edwards of the painful childhood she spent suffering through sickle cell treatments. Upset, she breaks up with Kyle, telling Jo she can't handle feeling so helpless. "So you chose surgery?" Jo asks. "No, I chose me!" Stephanie says.
