[Season 3, Episode 15: Originally aired Feb. 8, 2007]

Recap of Events:

Disappearences happen in science. Disease can suddenly fade away. Tumors go missing. We open someone up to discover the cancer is gone. It's unexplained, it's rare, but it happens. We call it misdiagnosis, say we never saw it in the first place, any explanation but the truth. That life is full of vanishing acts. If something that we didn't know we had disappears, do we miss it?

This episode opens with Meredith trying to deal (or not deal) with the fact that her mother is once again in an Alzheimer state--in other words, she doesn't recognize Meredith after being lucid for a short time last week. To Meredith, it's like she lost her mother all over again and she has to mourn. We see her in the bathtub, sunk deep down under water, and suddenly Derek is worried and pulls her out. She objects to being "rescued."

Cristina and Burke are arguing about who should tell the news about their engagement. Cristina is adamant she should tell her friends--especially Meredith--first, but even though she has many opportunities in the locker room, she can't quite get it out. Is she having second thoughts about the engagement, or is this another Cristina quirk?

The surgeons are gathered in the clinic for triage training, and are only half-heartedly paying attention when the Chief comes in and announces it's all hands on deck for a major catastrophe with multiple traumas.
