Episode 4.01: A Change Is Gonna Come
Airdate: September 27, 2007
Having just returned from her honeymoon with Meredith, Cristina searches for Burke, but he’s nowhere to be found. Meredith, Cristina, Izzie and Alex spend their first day as residents with their own groups of interns – among the interns are George, repeating his intern year after failing his exams, and Lexie Grey, Meredith’s half-sister whom she has never met. Now that Derek’s relationship with Meredith has reached an emotional impasse, he looks to his fellow doctors for friendship; Bailey wrestles with her place within the hospital now that her former interns report to new Chief Resident Callie; and Richard resumes his position as Chief of Surgery.
Someone will say “I love you, too” at the end of this episode. It looks like this line will be said by someone involved in the George/Izzie/Callie triangle.
Lexie (Meredith’s sister) is one of Cristina’s interns. George is going to be one of Meredith’s interns.
They may stick a fork in George/Izzie relationship in the season premiere when the ex-platonic pals are forced to examine their relationship while tending to an, um, unusual patient: a deer. That’s right, an injured deer will be admitted to Seattle Grace.
Expect changes to occur in the season premiere as the title is “A Change Is Gonna Come.” The premiere will see new interns enter the medical world. One, who is supposed to be named Thomson, helps deliver a baby on the interns’ first day on the job. The show would not be the same without a wacky case. In this episode, the wacky case is that of a young boy bringing his bleeding female raccoon pet to the hospital in the hope a doctor will save her.
Clara, who is with her two young children, discuss the status of her husband Henry with one of the doctors. Henry has suffered extremely traumatic injuries during a car accident. The doctor says that the only thing holding Henry’s head to his body is skin and muscle and that he will surely died very soon, even with surgery. A boy brings a near-dead racoon to Seattle Grace in the hope they will be able to save it. His father wants his son to grow up and stop living in a make-believe world. Some of the doctors need to deal with new stressed out interns. One of the interns will help deliver a baby.
