While there have been some good moments right here and there, general, Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 6 will not be making it on the Greatest Grey’s Turkey Day installments listing.

It had some drama, a scare, “framily,” and two steamy hookups, but it surely nonetheless managed to be a lackluster hour generally.

Pecan Pie  - Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 6

Carrying over from Station 19 Season 5 Episode 6, Bailey was having a powerful time processing that Dean Miller’s father arrived on the hearth station when she was having Thanksgiving dinner with Ben and took child Pru. In her heartbreak, she opted for a full day on the hospital.

Except, for a vacation, there was a startling lack of fun-filled, weird circumstances of lacking digits, burn victims or a relative stabbing one other within the eyeball with a fork or one thing. You know, the enjoyable vacation stuff.

Bailey managed to step in and help Noah’s spouse after returning to the hospital worse off than ever earlier than, barely clinging to life.

As somebody who has endured a lot as a girl, spouse, mom, and little one, she knew all too effectively that Noah’s spouse was desperately making an attempt to maintain it collectively and stay sturdy.

Her recommendation to the girl was profound and one thing that ladies usually want to listen to. We usually pleasure ourselves on sustaining our feelings — preserving it collectively for our household and associates, who we really feel are depending on us being “the sturdy one.”

As Bailey mentioned, everybody else is all the time allowed to collapse, however within the case of wives and moms, and such, it not often appears to be the case. She gave Noah’s spouse the house to scream, cry, and do no matter she wanted to get all her feelings in a cathartic manner reasonably than maintain them inside.

But everybody else round you will get to collapse. Take your flip.


She gave her house to collapse, and oddly, it was a bit humorous to see her shut the door on the girl abruptly like that, but it surely was efficient.

It was a distraction for Bailey, however she allowed herself to have a second to course of what was taking place and sympathize with Pru, too. And Webber was proper there to uplift her with encouraging phrases and a selfmade pecan pie from his pregnant affected person.


The friendship between Webber and Bailey stays one of many biggest components of this sequence all these years later, and it made you smile when she expressed gratitude for Richard Webber. We agree with that, Bailey.

Webber’s affected person he shared with Jo was such a candy girl, and it was scary when it appeared she would bleed out and never make it again to her 5 children on Thanksgiving.

Much like Bailey’s recommendation to Noah’s spouse, Jo’s pearls of knowledge to her affected person’s husband have been issues that wanted saying.

The poor girl had 5 children for her husband, and he’d in all probability have a million extra. Society does make girls really feel as if they need to do issues a sure manner or not vocalize their wants or ask for assist.

She nearly died having her final little one. You might perceive why she needed her tubes tied, and, sadly, she did not know learn how to discuss to her husband about it since he beloved her sufficient to do no matter she happy.

She was the cutest, too. One could not assist laughing when she drove herself to the hospital and introduced a pecan pie for the medical doctors, too. She was so well mannered and nice regardless of her ache!

Our society does not give girls permission to speak about what they need, say they need assistance. Maybe do not ask her if she wants assist. Help.


Noah is dying, and there isn’t any saving him. It will not be lengthy now, both, and it is a tragic case. Owen’s funding on this one has opened up this different facet of Owen. It’s been refreshing that Owen had a storyline that is not dedicated to his love life.

He feels a lot lighter, happier, and grounded this season, and he is been so satisfying to look at. He took care of Noah’s son and knew learn how to distract him. And his household scenes with Teddy, Megan, and Farouk have been charming.

The Hunt siblings are humorous collectively, and also you all the time see a a lot lighter facet to Owen when Megan is round. The two of them avoiding their mom for the vacations was amusing, however Teddy including some context to why she’s doing the identical was notable.

We maintain getting these glimpses of Leo in attire and Teddy’s makes an attempt to deal with that due to how fearful she is of a world that can decide her child harshly. She prevented Owen’s mom out of worry that she’d say one thing if Leo walked out in a costume.

On the one hand, leaving Leo there to cope with Mrs. Hunt’s feedback or conduct presumably might not have been the perfect idea both. But she is aware of that she’s fiercely protecting of Leo, and if she reacted, it will be a relationship ruiner.

It’s a kind of background tales that looks as if it is resulting in one thing extra vital that will likely be within the forefront down the highway.

But it was a good factor that Owen and Teddy have been on the hospital. Teddy wanted to be there to help Megan when Farouk’s coronary heart stopped. The poor child has been by means of the wringer, and on such a slow-moving hour, you could not have put it previous the sequence in the event that they selected to kill Farouk off or one thing.

Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, however he’s on ECMO and the transplant listing.

It nonetheless seems like Megan has little or no to take action far, and it is nearly like they introduced her again to develop Hayes’ storyline. Taking care of Farouk has given him one thing of significance, they usually’re additionally pushing the Merhayes agenda with each interplay.

Before issues bought critical, they have been flirting and speaking about Game night time, his children, and issues of that nature. The vibes between them are there. And Megan trusts him sufficient to do what’s greatest for her son when he has to make the powerful calls that she and Teddy could not.

Speaking of bringing folks alongside to additional storylines, Schmico was again within the limelight a bit, and Levi’s mom has change into the Schmico fangirl. It’s a turnaround from the sooner days when she had points along with her son’s sexuality.

But boy did she come on sturdy. She was the quintessential meddlesome mother who was already shifting Levi and Nico’s relationship 1000 steps forward, planning their marriage ceremony and kids and getting the rundown on his medical historical past.

Amelia: Link, what? Is it burning?
Link: You’d have to show the oven on to burn it.

Schmico is nice sufficient and all, however as time goes on, the shine of this relationship wanes when we don’t get any growth for Nico. He’s solely ever there for Levi. He does not stand out on his personal as a character. We know little about him, and he by no means will get any focus.

He’s a severely underdeveloped character. It was the proper alternative to be taught extra about him or perhaps introduce us to his household or one thing, however Levi wasn’t even within the room the vast majority of the time, and it was nonetheless solely about him.

Meanwhile, the Amelia and Link factor stay complicated as all hell! Does Amelia know what she needs? She runs so cold and hot that you simply can’t sustain.

It’s unfathomable that issues bought so bizarre between them that she did not invite him over for dinner within the first place. She is aware of that he has this hangup about his dad and mom shuffling him forwards and backwards for two-holiday celebrations, however she deliberate on preserving Scout for Thanksgiving whereas he was alone?

The two of them teaming as much as care for Mer’s children once more and cooking a Thanksgiving dinner was cute, although. You might inform they fell into those self same habits.

And Amelia appeared to benefit from the domesticity. It was hilarious when she thought she was cooking the turkey however hadn’t even turned on the oven.

And how freaking cute was Link dancing it out with the children? You might see Amelia’s emotions for him shining by means of when she watched him, so it wasn’t stunning once they have been making out and having their attractive time.

In truth, this fits them greater than Amelia abruptly dumping him after which behaving as if their relationship by no means occurred. It’s plausible that they might have this limbo factor the place they’re nonetheless bodily with one another or have to regulate to what their lives seem like whereas they don’t seem to be collectively.

And hey, this woman isn’t going to show her nostril up at some Amelia and Link sexytimes. The draw back of that is that it might result in blended messages. What does it say that she did not wish to marry him, have extra children, or dwell a home life, however then she bought turned on by all of that and fell again into mattress with him?

And what does that imply for this flirtation she has with Kai? She started the hour flirt texting with Kai and ended it with Link.

As an Amelink fan, it is gratifying to know that there is nonetheless one thing between them due to how poorly they dealt with tearing them aside.

But it is messy as hell to start out this Amelia/Kai factor to get some followers invested after which make this transfer. If that is Amelia and Link’s closure, then positive. If that is a manner of opening the door for a polyamorous storyline for Amelia, then that is also fascinating.

Mer: You mentioned have been.
Nick: What do you imply?
Mer: You mentioned Charlotte and surgical procedure have been your priororities.
Nick: Right. Priorities can change.

But it is also a kind of issues the place if they do not deal with this storyline proper, relying on the way it performs out, the present would’ve queerbaited viewers and ship preferences apart, that does not sit effectively both.

Meanwhile, issues bought heated between Nick and Mer, and their love scene was scorching as hell.

Driving to Mer -tall - Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 6

The falling snow by means of the window, the framing of Pompeo and Speedman, Mer’s bareback — it was all types of steamy, child!

Mer did not appear torn up about lacking the vacation along with her children, and weirdly, Nick was manner too insistent about going to a cabin with a single mother. It was additionally odd when he implied that his niece, who he adored, was not a precedence, however Mer is?

Link, in the present day was — you’re nothing like your dad and mom.


But that apart, he drove by means of a winter storm to be along with her. It was nerve-wracking when he was within the automobile, and also you could not put it previous this present to have him in an accident or one thing, however maybe the Derek parallels would’ve been an excessive amount of then.

Mer and Nick all the time do that factor the place they’ve these conversations the place they only discuss about something, and one thing is enamoring about that. It’s all of the innocuous issues that should not imply a lot however by some means do.

Helping Noah -tall - Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 6

It’s mild and simple. Although, it was a bit boring this time round. Things did not get fascinating till they fell into mattress collectively. I’m curious what their relationship will seem like once they’re not in their very own bubble, which is how we have seen them ever since we met Nick Marsh. 

The hour lacked among the pizazz that Thanksgiving episodes used to have. It was principally forgetful.
