When Season 12 left off with the Winter Finale episode, "Things We Lost in the Fire," the hospital was overflowing with a large number of critically injured firefighters and everyone had to be on their toes – particularly Bailey who, as Chief of Surgery, was visibly overwhelmed by the pressure to rise to the occasion, despite reassurances from Webber.

Meanwhile, the bad blood between Riggs and Owen continued to flow and had everyone speculating why both men were at war with each other. The situation escalates when Owen's mother arrives at the hospital to check the status of her firefighter boyfriend, who is in bad shape and is being operated on by none other than Riggs. That doesn't sit well with Owen when he is finds out, and the two men come to blows over it.

Meredith decides to investigate, but after she learns the truth from Owen's mother – her relationship with Amelia hits a snag when Meredith refuses to divulge what she knows.
