'Grey's Anatomy' recap: Let Hear It For The Boys
After Alex is cut adrift, Richard takes him under his wing a bit. Richard has a lot of extra time on his hands because no one is used to him just being a regular old surgeon and so they don't want to demean him with routine surgeries. A belligerent drunk is brought in to the OR and when he becomes a threat to April, Alex's dorky patient decides to stand up to the guy and has the stuffing beaten out of him. Once Alex and Richard get him to the OR Alex tries to bail since these aren't the type hours he needs, but Richard orders him to stay and to remember the joy in just doing surgery, period.
In honor of this being the Good-Lookin' Dude Hour, Dr. Ben Warren, Hot Anesthesiologist is back. He's working with Derek, who accidently spills that Bailey has moved on to Hot Nurse Eli. (In case there is any confusion, I am the captain of Team Ben.) He nearly gets into a fight with Eli over a patient and that's before he knows that Eli has taken over romancing his former ladyfriend, so I think when the inevitable showdown arrives, it will be a doozy.
