'Grey's Anatomy' recap: Crash Into Me
All of the patients of the week are Valentine-related, and the cutest is a little girl brought in with a horrible peanut allergy -- she ate a chocolate from the boy who likes her that she didn't realize had nuts in it. The boy's mom is the one to bring her to the hospital and she and her son wait there until the girl's mom arrives, and the son has the little girl hold his hand and squeeze it any time she needs to. When her mom arrives she flips out and completely blames the other mom for what happened, and creates quite a scene yelling at them to go. The little boy refuses, so Alex tells him that he will be there when the girl wakes up and will tell her whatever message the boy wants to give. He winds up sweetly reading a note that the boy had dictated, that ends romantically by saying that he doesn't care which of them gave the other head lice since at least they had it together. (No, seriously, it's actually extremely cute.)
Callie has a surprise planned for Arizona but with all the hints she drops about it, Arizona thinks they are going camping and she's dreading it. However, she wants time alone with Callie no matter what so she tries to get Mark to babysit. Eventually the two play rock-paper-scissors to see who has to watch Sofia. Mark loses, but it's just as well since Julia winds up having to cancel on him because of work and he and Lexie wind up eating the chocolates he bought while hanging out at the hospital. Later, Lexie has a revelation after watching a patient die that she wants to at least admit her feelings to Mark. She packs up Zola and takes her over to his apartment, but when she arrives it turns out Jackson has beaten her there. He bribes Mark with steak and good wine to help him study for his Boards. When Lexie sees him she tries to backtrack but Mark has her come in and join them, so she winds up spending her Valentine's night with both of her exes and two babies. The night turns out great for Arizona and Callie, though -- Callie fakes Arizona out by taking her up to Derek's trailer and acting like they really are just camping. But it turns out she's set up the inside like a love nest complete with tons of candles, wine, scarves draped everywhere, and even some fancy jeweled light fixture over the bed, and she points out to Arizona that she knows she hates actual camping. The two of them then get down to business and I just hope they don't knock over any of those candles.
