It was also Mark Sloane's first episode, and as a plastic surgeon, he thought he could help make Jake look more normal -- which is all he'd ever wanted. At the prospect of a facial reconstruction, Jake was ecstatic. Unfortunately, he died on Derek's table before he ever got to look like an average kid.
In one of the most bizarre scenes ever, Mark decides to perform the reconstruction postmortem. At least Jake would be handsome for his funeral?
