A Not-So-Warm Military Welcome

Now, the sooner you recognize that the sooner we can get to the business of saving a life."

Mean Girls: Grey's Anatomy Edition?
Edwards and Blake are gossiping and complaining that Jo and Ben get special treatment and the best surgeries because of who they're in relationships with, but suddenly realize they sound just like the group of teenage "mean girl" cheerleaders that flooded the ER earlier. Meanwhile, DeLuca, who's been pushing Maggie to tell everyone about their relationship, looks concerned. Maybe it's not such a great idea to go public with their relationship after all.

Maggie Takes Everyone to Awkward Town
Maggie definitely has a gift for making social situations uncomfortable, and when she decides on the spur of the moment to let everyone know she's dating DeLuca, it's "really hard to watch," as an amused Arizona informs her afterwards. When Dr. Riggs asks her if they can reschedule a procedure for later that night, she calls Andrew over to stand next to her before announcing that she can't make it, because she has plans: "...With Dr. DeLuca. A date! Whom I've been seeing. We've been seeing each other. As a couple. Romantically. In romance." Yep, that happened. Riggs, not sure what to make of the non sequitur, gives her a funny look and agrees not to reschedule.

No Special Treatment for Ben
Bailey is livid when she emerges from the long and stressful surgery at Bauer Army Medical Center to multiple messages informing her that one of her residents, her husband Ben(!), went rogue, ignoring all the rules, and made the extremely risky call to try to save a patient's life by cutting open the man's chest with a clipboard! As the Chief, Bailey is furious that Ben's arrogance put her in the position of having to discipline him, but as a fellow surgeon, she can't wait to hear all the details.
