Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 – Review of episode 17 ‘Till I Hear It From You’

Written by M.

“Stuff comes apart. An eggshell is never gonna come back together.
A window will never unbreak.
It’s called the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
It’s also called life.
Stuff rarely comes together.
But it’ll always come apart.”

Sorry to say this, but Maggie is being a serious pain in the ass (sorry, not sorry). She has her opinion formed about pretty much everything without ever wanting to hear another point of view. She has the idea that her mother is here to get a boob job, but has never actually asked her why she is here. Instead she just gives Diane and everyone around her a hard time. But in all honesty, Diane is treating Maggie as is she’s a princess. She rather have her daughter be disgusted by her for a boob job than to risk hurting her by being honest. To tell her that she has cancer.

Nathan finally won over Meredith’s affection.

“I don’t have a good reason. I tried to come with one.
So then I thought, ‘Well, why do I like her?’
And I don’t know.
From the first time I saw you, you were at the O. R. board.
You were talking with Pierce, and she said something that made you laugh, and I couldn’t move.
And then I had to wait for you to write your name on the board because I just needed to know who you were.
So, I d I don’t have a good reason for you to like me.
I didn’t even try to like you. I didn’t want to.
And I certainly don’t want to have to think about you all the time, trying to come in early, see your name on the board,
come up with that one thing that’s gonna make you smile so your eyes do that thing they do.
Anyway, uh so that’s why I joke so much and to keep from having to say anything like this. 

So, I don’t have a good reason. I’m sorry. I wish I did.”

And then comes Maggie to ruin it all, who is hurt because she finally finds out why her mother is here.

Can the marriage between Owen and Amelia be saved? Is there even something left to save? I wonder though what Owen meant when he said that he knows what he wants. Does he mean Amelia or does he mean kids? If it’s Amelia, it’s a big character change for Owen, who broke up his marriage with Christina because she didn’t want kids. If it’s kids, than he sure knows how to pick them. Maybe it’s something he should bring up next time before he gets married. But Amelia involving his marriage to Christina in their fight, that was a low blow.

So DeLuca tells Edwards that he’s in love with Jo. Well we all already knew that. But the timing of telling it was a little weird, since Edwards was clearly upset about Elsie dying and that people need more time together. But her reaction was also a little weird, telling him to stop talking and to go away. Was it because him telling her and at that moment, it was unappropriated or is she hurt? Is Edwards falling for DeLuca?

“Everything comes apart at some point.
It’s the law. It’s what we were designed to do.
We have to face it and accept it and try to hold it together for as long as we can.” 


  • How cute is the old surgeon couple? These are some serious relationship goals!

  • That comment of Richard to Arizona, did he call her a whore? Sure he didn’t mean it, but that was mean.

Next week;
