[Warning: The below contains major spoilers for the Grey’s Anatomy Season 19, Episode 4, “Haunted.”]
The October 27 episode of Grey’s Anatomy is titled “Haunted,” however the one scary factor about Season 19 Episode 4 is how little occurs. Like Necco Wafers in Trick-or-Deal with’s haul, this episode simply seems like filler to us.
That mentioned, Bailey’s (Chandra Wilson) Princess Leia’s costume was cause sufficient for a Halloween-themed episode.
The “haunted” individual on this episode is Griffith (Alexis Floyd). In the beginning of the episode, the opposite interns watch and re-watch a viral video of a health care provider throwing a tantrum and destroying a hospital room. Seems that physician was Griffith. And after she joins Maggie (Kelly McCreary) in surgical procedure, Griffith explains every thing…
Maggie asks Griffith within the laundry room why she was kicked out of her final internship program.

This “trauma”, nonetheless, seems to be a corpse with a knife wound. owen (Kevin McKidd), Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Nickname (Scott Speedman), and Winston (Anthony Hill) clarify that with the rise of laparoscopic surgical procedure, surgical interns aren’t sufficiently uncovered to main wounds. So now the contestants are asking Grey Sloan’s latest class of trainees to apply their trauma expertise on cadavers donated to science.
The interns fail to save lots of their first corpse from dying (once more), however with some powerful love from Owen and Winston, they reunite as a crew and save the lifetime of a second corpse.

They’re a crew now, in spite of everything.
Talking of Owen and Winston, they bond over the frustrations of working beneath their respective spouses. Owen asks if Winston nonetheless loves Maggie. Winston says sure. Owen tells her to guard this love earlier than resentment takes over. And Winston, clearly taking that recommendation to coronary heart, later tells a stunned Maggie that he decides to give up cardio.
Talking of Owen, we get a glimpse of the pressure in his relationship with Teddy (Kim Raver) when Teddy has a one-on-one with Hyperlink (Chris Carmack) throughout a espresso break within the ambulance bay. When Hyperlink says he is loopy about Jo (Camille Luddington) – extra on that later – Teddy advises him to maneuver on with different girls to guard his platonic relationship with Jo. “There’s nothing like ruining another person’s life to wreck a friendship,” she says.
Even so, Teddy nonetheless appears good to her husband. She finds Owen asleep in a guard room and wakes him as much as carry again a candy reminiscence: whereas they have been on obligation, Teddy complained about all the vacations they have been lacking, so Owen organized an Easter egg hunt. with pink, white and blue plastic eggs stuffed with Valentine’s Day. Owen revels with Teddy on this reminiscence… however then he falls asleep once more. Romantic second over.
Oh, and about that confession from Hyperlink: he realizes now that he missed his likelihood to this point Jo when she nonetheless had emotions for him as a result of he was too hooked up to Amelia (Catherine Scorsone) on the time.
This episode’s sufferers of the week are Jarah and River, two youngsters who tried to leap off a roof right into a swimming pool whereas tripping on LSD. Jarah didn’t clear the touchdown and suffered extreme blunt power trauma to the chest. River, in the meantime, made it into the pool and escaped with minor accidents. However on the hospital, a nonetheless tripping river escapes the ER and jumps off the highest of an ambulance parked on the sidewalk under. And once more, he escapes critical harm – largely as a result of he virtually landed on high of Jo. River has a concussion and a damaged leg; Jo sprains her wrist.
You realize who else is having a foul day? Levi (Jacques Borelli), who’s so overworked that he yells on the nurses. It’s extremely completely different from Schmitt, and when Richard overhears him making enjoyable of one other colleague, Richard tells him to take a break. However Levi argues that if he pauses, individuals will die.
Richard then goes to Joe’s Bar in an try to get Helm (Jaicy Elliot) to surrender his profession as a bartender and return to the hospital. However Helm does simply high quality with the drinks. She reminds Richard that, in contrast to what occurred with Levi, nobody provided him a job when the residency program was closed. And now she’s working a job the place individuals respect her expertise. (We definitely hope Helm finally modifications his thoughts.)
So if Richard cannot get Helm again, he can no less than ease a few of Levi’s burden. He tells Levi that he is aware of the hospital failed Levi’s intern class, however Richard is decided to not lose Levi. So Richard says he is going to ensure the members choose up the slack left by the closure of the residency program.
