SUICIDE IS PAINLESS

Airdate: March 25, 2010
Author: Katia2525

Recap of Events:

Teddy has a terminal patient that is in a lot of pain and would like her physician to help her die. Teddy asks Owen to help since there need to be two physician signatures on the death certificate. The patient is convinced that this is what she wants, but her husband has his doubts. And it looks like Owen might be having his doubts as well and when he tells Teddy that she is basically killing this woman, it triggers him to have flashbacks of his war days.

Mark tells Callie that he has been on three dates with Teddy and they have yet to sleep together, which is clearly progress for Mark. He tells Callie she has to tell Arizona about wanting to have kids one day, but she is reluctant because things have been going so well between them.

Meredith tries to tell Derek about this cool surgery she gets to scrub in on, but he is too busy in a meeting to pay any attention to her.

The gang is all busy treating three patients that skied out of a helicopter and have multiple injuries. Owen continues to have flashbacks about treating people out in the desert during the war with Teddy.

Teddy asks Mark to help with the physician assisted suicide.

Derek decides to do the brain tumor surgery himself, effectively stealing it away from Meredith. And she yells at him about it, in front of everyone.

Owen remembers how his vehicle was bombed by an IED and moments later he snaps at Christina about some detail regarding the terminal patient. Later, he goes to Derek to demand further tests and Teddy tells him off.

Richard is feeling bad because he doesn’t think he can be friends with the other doctors…when he enters the room they all stop their conversations. Mark tells him that it’s a sign of respect because to them he is still kind of the Chief. Later in the OR, Richard tries to make conversation with the other doctors by saying he wants to “hit” a nurse, but it doesn’t work out at all.

Owen has a PTSD flashback about trying to save his friend that was also in the vehicle that was flipped during the roadside bomb attack. Later when he is talking to the patient, he tries to give her hope about finding a cure, etc. She convinces him that she is not afraid to die, but she is afraid of hope.

One of the three daredevil patients tells Callie that he doesn’t really like doing these extreme things, he just does them because that’s what his friends are into. Callie then has a moment of outburst and tells the other guys and they all realize that each one was just doing it for the other one, and they agree to go to Napa next year rather than Pamplona to run with the bulls.

Richard gives Derek some advice about being Chief, which he appreciates.
Terminal patient takes the drugs that will lead to her death.

Derek apologizes to Meredith but she wasn’t mad anyway. Callie tells Arizona that she wants to have kids one day. Teddy goes over to Mark’s house and they finally have sex.

Owen is still thinking about his time in the war, and how he stayed with his friend, keeping him alive for hours and finally agreeing to let him die, just minutes before a helicopter came to save them. So, that’s why he had such a hard time letting that patient die.
