Here is a sh0rt episode recap of Grey’s Anatomy season 8 episode 22 titled “Let the Bad Times Roll.”
This episode revealed the lone Seattle Grace resident who failed the oral medical boards. Let’s discuss their performances one by one.
So even Alex, who was late, passed the boards? Yes, he might have forfeited the first session but luckily he perfected the last two. Way to go Karev!
Meredith was sick yet she was able to answer the questions in a direct, clear and concise manner. Although she kept on vomiting almost before and after each question, she still made it through. Talk about one of her answers which she already knew since she was 12 because her mother practically invented the procedure.
Cristina was a genius. Although her attitude was not that great in this episode she still managed to answer the questions correctly. She even described her examiner as a FOSSIL due to the latter’s preference on primitive procedure.
Jackson was distracted at first by her mom’s presence (and noise) in the next room but he was able to pull it through in the end. What about that bathroom incident with April during the break?
Lastly and unfortunately April. She failed the exams (although our only basis is Mrs. Avery’s statement that one of Seattle residents failed and April’s face gave us such conclusion in the final scene). She kept on sweating on her first session while giving hesitating and giving unsure answers, and even professed her pre-marital sex to the examiner which definitely did not help her cause. Should we blame Avery for this? I guess not. April failed to impress her examiners with her answers, that’s it.
Other events: Arizona’s former “husband” came and was already dying, little Grey told Sloan that she still love him, the arrival of candidates who will replace the leaving residents and more of Webber and Mrs. Avery fling.
