Grey's Anatomy: Where the Wild Things Are

Friday 2 July, 10:00pm on Five

The quirky drama following the trials and tribulations of the doctors of a Seattle hospital continues its fourth series. In this episode, a surgical competition leads the residents to indulge in some unprofessional behaviour, and three patients are admitted to the hospital after a horrific bear attack. The residents all wake up in various rooms of the hospital, where they have been sleeping for the last two weeks. It transpires that they are nearing the end of a surgical competition, where varying amounts of points are awarded to the surgeon who performs different procedures. Bailey and Richard are both aware of the competition but are letting the residents fight it out for themselves as a rite of passage. “I’m not a zookeeper,” Bailey explains. As the residents eagerly await ambulance arrivals in the car park, Izzie treats Otis (Cheech Marin, ‘Nash Bridges’, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’), a patient with a sprained ankle. She hopes that his other mild symptoms all add up to a more complicated ailment that would qualify as a ‘medical mystery’, thereby giving her the necessary points to win the competition. She subjects Otis to a battery of tests, but cannot reach a definite diagnosis, much to the chagrin of level-headed George. “When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras!” he mutters. Has Izzie been so eager for a complication that she has overlooked the obvious problem?
