Elsewhere, Meredith and Maggie learn something new about Zola.
Warning… Spoilers below!
On Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 Episode 4, Owen and Winston give the interns a cadaver to practice trauma on as a Halloween present. The doctors deal with two teenage boys who took LSD, and Webber helps out a burnt out Schmitt. Meanwhile, Meredith and Nick have some romantic time away, but Meredith rushes home to help an anxious Zola. A part of Griffith’s past is revealed.
Halloween At Grey Sloan
Bailey, dressed as Princess Leia, orders Schmitt around, who seems overly stressed and not in the Halloween spirit.
Griffith heads to the interns in the cafeteria, who are watching a video of a doctor throwing stuff around. They’re all joking around, but Griffith doesn’t seem to think it’s that funny.
Webber appears, and reveals he’s having a pumpkin carving contest, that it can help with precision for them. Maggie pages for an intern, and Webber sends Griffith, leaving the remaining interns with the pumpkin carving.
Meredith is about to head home to take the kids trick or treating, but Nick rushes in and tells her that they got bodies for the interns. Nick ropes Winston into helping him.
Jo and Luna show up, and Link invites Jo out to dinner for his cancer-versary. Jo says that she’s working another shift, and Link goes to Tinder, saying it’s the perfect opportunity. They joke around, but once Jo leaves, Link seems disappointed.
Maggie, Griffith, and Teddy help out two teenagers who jumped off a roof into a swimming pool.
Getting Down to Business
The interns work on carving their pumpkins, and Mika reveals to Jules that she’s scared of pumpkins. The interns get paged and rush out of there as soon as possible. They end up with Meredith, Nick, and Winston, who reveals to them that they will be doing Owen’s annual trauma training session with fresh cadavers. They send off the interns to save their “patient”.
Griffith notices something wrong with the chest of Jarah, one of the teenagers. His father sees him, and Maggie explains what happened and reveals that Jarah and his friend River took LSD. Jarah’s father insists that they’re both good students and don’t do drugs.
Teddy checks out River, who tells Teddy that bats were after them, so they had to jump off the roof.
Meanwhile, Winston tells the interns that whoever uses the best critical thinking skills gets to scrub in with him, which causes the interns to jump into competitive mode with the cadaver.
Meredith takes the kids home after trick or treating, and Zola prepares for a sleepover with a friend. Meredith voices her concern since it’s the first time Zola will spend the night away since her panic attack. Zola comes down, eager and excited, so Meredith and Nick head out to take her.
Ben brings Pru to Bailey, who is eager to take her trick or treating. Ben leaves and seems off as he says goodbye to his wife.
River’s father shows up, and Teddy leads him to his son. However, when Teddy pulls the curtain away, River is gone!
Outside, Jo helps a pregnant woman into her wheelchair as Link comes out of the hospital. They hear a voice, and look up to see River on the overhang part of the roof. River wants to fly, and jumps off the roof, landing right on Jo.
Link checks out Jo’s hand, and Jo notices that Link is wearing cologne. Jo assures him she’ll be fine, and sends him to check out River, who shattered his leg in the jump. River’s father finds Link and asks for an update, but Link doesn’t have one.
The Breaking Point
Bailey takes Pru for trick or treating, but they end up in the room with the interns in a cadaver. She covers Pru’s eyes and leads her away.
Owen and Winston watch as the interns struggle to take the lead in helping the patient. Winston reveals that Maggie has a comment about every aspect of his wife, and it’s driving him crazy.
The interns scream over each other and end up failing their training and killing their “patient.”
Schmitt yells at a nurse who tells him that another doctor needs help, saying he can’t do anymore just because the interns are always conveniently busy. Webber walks in on him yelling and tells him to come with him.
A Moment of Learning
Meredith and Nick discuss the interns, and Meredith wants to know about Lucas. Once they get into their nice hotel room, however, the talk of interns ends.
Maggie tells Jarah’s father that his son is going into surgery. River’s father walks up, saying Jarah should be arrested for giving River drugs. Jarah’s father blames it on River’s father, because they were at his house. They begin screaming at each other, and they don’t stop until Bailey steps in and shuts them down. She talks about how difficult parenting and teenagers can be, so none of the stuff they were fighting about matters, that they just need to keep their kids alive and safe.
Owen and Winston critique the intern’s work, and give them another cadaver with the exact same injury to work on. Jules loses it, wondering how this is where people who donate their bodies to science end up, and it’s disrespectful. Owen reminds them all that they’re doctors and teachers, they aren’t monsters.
Griffith’s phone begins going off during Jarah’s surgery. He begins crashing, and Maggie tells Griffith to put aside whatever is going on with her to help save this kid.
Problems and Solutions
Webber has Schmitt carve pumpkins, but Schmitt doesn’t have time for it, and isn’t into it at all. Webber tells Schmitt that he needs to take a break, because if he keeps screaming at people, he won’t be Chief Resident anymore. Schmitt says that he can’t take a break or people will die, and he wouldn’t be able to come back from losing another patient that he could’ve saved.
During his scan, River wonders if he killed Jarah and begins frantically apologizing. Link goes into the room to calm River down, and holds his hand as he reassures him that he’s there.
While the interns continue to struggle, Blue lets it slip that he never had a dad after Mika makes a comment about it. They continue frantically trying to help their “patient” and Lucas realizes what’s wrong and takes charge.
Teddy tells River that he has a concussion, and Link says that Jarah made it through his surgery. River’s dad consoles his son, and says that they will find a way through it all.
The Past Comes Back to Haunt Us Sometimes
Maggie confronts Griffith about her work being off, and reveals that she knows that Griffith was asked to leave her last program. Griffith reveals that she was a model resident, but that she dealt with racist comments, and she was asked to leave when she raised concerns about it all. Griffith opens up more and reveals that she got angry and broke down afterwards, and that the footage that her fellow interns were laughing at earlier is her. She’s been trying to get the video taken down, and that’s why her phone was blowing up during the surgery.
Webber heads to the bar to talk to Helm. He says that she doesn’t belong there, but Helm says that she’s going to make a lot more money at the bar and that she walked out of Grey Sloan, and nobody offered her a residency. Webber says that they need her, but Helm says it will take a lot more than even money to convince her to come back.
Meredith waits for a text from Zola to see how she’s doing. She tells Nick that Zola’s principal wants her to skip two grades, which Maggie did and hated it. Meredith is afraid that she’s going to give Zola more anxiety. Nick talks about after his dad left and how his mom got a van and drove to the Grand Canyon, and it taught him that there was a world outside of being the kid whose dad left him. Right at that moment, Meredith gets a call from Zola, who is crying. Nick offers to drive Meredith to go pick her up.
Link and Teddy have a conversation about how one stupid impulse can ruin someone’s life, like with Jarah and River. Teddy says that it doesn’t just end with teenagers: that’s life. Link reveals that he has a thing for Jo, which Teddy saw right through. Teddy’s advice to Link is for him to sleep with other women until those feelings go away, because Owen was her best friend and now they’re married
We’re All in This Together
Winston and Owen talk the other interns about their work with the cadaver. They each go through why they think they deserve to win. Lucas tells Winston and Owen that the other interns helped him figure out what was wrong, and Owen says that he’s getting to scrub in with Winston. The other interns look defeated, until Lucas asks if they can all scrub in with him, too. Winston is stunned, but agrees.
Owen asks if Winston still loves Maggie, and he says of course he does. Owen advises him not to let it get to the point where the resentment and annoyance takes over.
Maggie laughs with Griffith as they watch the video of her throwing stuff around. Maggie assures Griffith that she’s a great doctor and deserves a great program, so she can leave all of that stuff in the past.
River’s father wheels him over to talk to Jarah’s father. River apologizes to him, and Jarah and River’s fathers shake hands, just glad that their sons are okay.
Webber tells Schmitt that they failed him again, and that they just need to figure everything out with the new program. He says that attendings are going to be taken the slack from the residents, so that he doesn’t watch the program fail again. Schmitt is weary at first, but Webber takes his last patient from him.
Maggie finds Winston, who admits that he’s considering changing specialties. At Maggie’s confusion, Winston says that he loves her and wants it to stay that way, so he thinks he needs to leave cardio.
Jo has a brace on her wrist, and she gives Link some candy for his cancer-versary. Link watches after her longingly as she leaves.
Teddy finds Owen and she reminisces on their history and him doing sweet things for her. However, the sweet moment is quickly ruined when Owen falls right back asleep.
Griffith reveals to the other interns that the video is of her. They all joke about it and head to breakfast together.
Zola apologizes that Nick and Meredith had to leave to come pick her up. Meredith assures her that she’ll always be there when Zola needs her. Zola reveals that she couldn’t sleep and just kept thinking about her family and Alzheimer’s. Zola wonders what’s wrong with her and when she’ll get better. Meredith assures her that it will get better, and that they just have to find her the right school and environment, even if that’s outside of Seattle.
