And while Grey's Anatomy fans never spent much time with Bailey's mother, Chandra Wilson delivered a heartbreaking performance on Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 5 as we watched Bailey deal with the unfairness and guilt over losing her mother.
The next day, Hopper tells Enzo about his past. When he was 18, he joined the army and tested well enough that they put him in the Chemical Corps. They were mixing up 55-gallon drums of Agent Orange with only kitchen gloves and no mask, constantly inhaling the fumes. They told them it wasn't chemical warfare, just some harmless \"herbicide to kill plants.\" But when they returned from the war and tried to live a \"normal\" life and start a family, it was as if they were cursed. Their kids were born stillborn or with horrible defects. The horror clung to them. Hopper says that he and his wife Diane (Jerri Tubbs) wanted a baby, and even though he knew the risks, he hid them. Their daughter Sara (Elle Graham) was born healthy, but she died from cancer. Diane left him, and he hid himself in drugs and alcohol. When El and Joyce came into his life, he convinced himself that they needed him. But it wasn't true, Hop says. They didn't need him. He needed them. Hopper proceeds to shatter what's left of our hearts as he says, \"The minute I sent for Joyce, I sentenced her to death. Just like I did with Sara. Everyone I love, I hurt. See I was wrong this whole time. I wasn't cursed. I am the curse.\" Suddenly he and Enzo hear a distant snarling nearby, the rumored \"monster from America.\"
Lexie, who is wearing a bonnet and drawn on freckles, is shown talking to Erin, the daughter of Jack, a patient who is waiting for a heart transplant. She is upset because he didn't receive any medication and tells Lexie that if they had time to dress up in a costume then they should have time to provide care. Jack then says to his daughter that maybe people are having a hard time taking her seriously because she's dressed up as a mouse. She says that she works with 5 year olds, verifying that her costume is acceptable, while Lexie's is not. George walks up and says that he will take care of things. He tells Lexie to make sure all medications are given before doing anything else and tells her he likes her costume. She says thanks and that Cristina said they could wear costumes when George cuts her off and says that Cristina is playing them. Defeated, Lexie exclaims that she knew.
As an ambulance is heading to the bay, Izzie, George and Lexie are waiting. Lexie can feel the tensions and offers to wait somewhere else so they can talk. Izzie says that there is no reason to talk since they no longer have secrets because Callie told everyone. George says that it's going to be a long day. The paramedic is pulling the patient out and says that her name is \"Erin Shanley, 34, massive head trauma when a brick came through her windshield\". Kids were screwing around on a bridge. Izzie is looking at the head trauma and points out that there is brain matter coming out. She is a donor. George and Lexie look at the patient's face and realize that she is the daughter of their patient waiting for a heart transplant.
Dr. Hahn goes into Erin's room and introduces herself to Jack. The transplant team is ready, if he's ready to say goodbye. Jack figures out she doesn't have kids due to the way she walked in there and said what she said. He still refuses his daughter's heart. It would haunt him every day of his life. Hahn says she's sorry and leaves after asking to be paged when he's ready. George speaks up to Jack, saying he doesn't have kids, but he knows what it's like to lose a parent. His daughter loved him. She would want him to have her heart. George says he would've given his dad his heart if he could have. Izzie and Lexie are moved. Jack then agrees to take the heart.
Lexie catches up with Meredith. She says she watched a heart transplant, and Meredith says she helped build a little boy some ears. Lexie says she dug up her mom's cat. Since Susan didn't leave them any instructions, they had to figure out what she wanted. Susan loved that cat. So, Lexie dug her up, snuck into the cemetery and reburried it with her mother. It was creepy and morbid, but it made her mom happy. Meredith thanks her.
Bailey is out in the ambulance bay while on the phone with Tucker. She's trying to explain why she didn't make it in time, but he just hangs up on her. George comes outside and they sit down together. George tells her about the special heart transplant. Bailey asks if he's all right. George is sure she's heard about his marriage. He's sorry if he disappointed her. Bailey says she's not his mother. George realizes he's gonna have to talk to his mother, too. Bailey tells him he's not a bad guy. What he did was unkind and hurtful and wrong, but it takes two to reach that point in your marriage. Here she is helping an earless boy, and her husband wants to act like that's not a good thing. That's on him, wanting things to be purely black and white. She missed her son's first Halloween and her heart is aching, but that doesn't mean anything to him. In his world, she simply didn't make it home, meaning she's the bad guy. George is sorry for her. Bailey was there when his father died and when he came back from Vegas. It's not black and white.
I got a lot of friends whose grandparents they call righteous gentiles, to help their Jewish friends and neighbors knowing that they got caught, their whole family would fall into concentration. That took a lot. We say Jews, chutzpah, guts, courage. And I always want them to know that I respect that. But listen, I do the best I can. I describe it and let them walk on my heart, my soul. I can't get rid of it, it's like a tattoo here, but I can't get rid of it. I don't think about it every minute of the day. But when I get into it, I want these kids to know exactly what I felt, what I saw. And a bear in mind that I was the age of most of those seniors in high school, I was only 18. I didn't turn 19 till the war had ended in Europe.

She asks for her toolkit, which he goes to retrieve.
Quinn and Fara finagle a new stakeout spot in the heart of the city, across from where Fara spotted Haqqani last week. She's feeling extremely uneasy with her new role as a real member of the team instead of merely just an assistant. Quinn provides assurance, as he is so good at doing, and the two embark on yet another watch. Fara uses the downtime during the stakeout to ask Quinn about his friendship with Carrie. The exchange provides this quote from Quinn: \"Manipulating people and exploiting their weakness... it can get ugly sometimes.\" Fara doesn't know the layers to this sentiment, but the rest of us do. Quinn knows Carrie better than everyone and he knows exactly what she's capable of.
At the bar, Redmond is drinking with Professor Boyd. Boyd is a hot mess, but Redmond's keeping it cool and asking him what's going on that he's so out of it. Just as Boyd is airing his frustrations - vaguely, but venting nonetheless - Tasneem from ISI comes over and greets Redmond. The run-in shakes up Boyd and drives him to leave while Redmond, supposedly unaware of her affiliation with his drinking buddy, is unfazed. Redmond and Martha put Professor Boyd down to sleep after bringing him home from the bar. Martha talks to Redmond about how different Dennis was when she met him and how he has deteriorated over time. She's clearly heartbroken and Dennis himself realizes this as he overhears everything from the couch they put him on.
The stakeout continues and as the cleric they're watching leaves the apartment, Fara and Quinn follow him by car. In need of a drone to get this guy, Fara calls Carrie and, yet again, no one can get ahold of her. The two continue their car chase into Taliban territory, which scares Fara. Quinn scares her more when he asks her to get out of the car and put a tracker on the cleric's car. She fails at her task, forcing her and Quinn to head back to their stakeout quarters empty-handed. In the interim, a border officer checking cars checks the cleric's car and finds a gagged and bound Saul. The scene cuts away without revealing what happens next and I'M INTERNALLY SCREAMING. 59ce067264
