[Season 3, Episode 8: Originally aired Novmeber 16, 2006]

Synopsis (from ABC.com):

Many people don't know that the human eye has a blind spot in its field of vision. There is a part of the world that we are really blind to. The problem is, sometimes our blind spots shield us from things that really shouldn't be ignored. Sometimes our blind spots keep our lives bright and shiny.

Meredith goes to visit her mother, and finds she hasn't been eating. Richard shows up and brings her a box of chocolates, because he knows she hasn't been eating regular food.

Her announcement to the other interns that she's now "bright and shiny" because of getting back together with Derek takes a bit of a setback when she finds out that George's dad is in the hospital. He passed out and broke his clavicle in a fall.

When it comes to our blind spots, maybe our brains aren't compensating. Maybe they're protecting us.
