Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 Episode 19, “What’s Inside,” features a grieving Maggie who is trying to get through her heartache.
Watching Maggie go through her ups and down the entire episode had me smiling, and then almost in tears again. Maggie may have gotten herself back to work, successfully saved a baby, and did her job, but that won’t stop the hurting inside.
The death of Diane is going to be something that weighs on Maggie for the rest of her life, but at least we got to see a side of Diane that we hadn’t previously seen before.
Maggie is blaming herself and Jackson for her mother’s death, but the truth is Diane was the one who could’ve saved herself. Jackson bringing over Diane’s full chart and photos is something Maggie will never forget. During her time of hurt, Jackson helped ease some of it.
I especially like that they put this twist on Diane. She knew she was never going to beat cancer; she only came to be with her daughter. Diane going out and doing things she never thought she would do in her lifetime such as skydiving and visiting Paris brought joy to her, and it brings joy to Maggie.
You know what else brings joy to people? Dance parties.
Amelia, Meredith, and Maggie all dancing around in the living room together is the first time we’ve seen Maggie enjoying herself since her mother’s death. It also brings back many memories from the good ole days of Cristina and Meredith.
I’m not happy that Maggie is having such a hard time, but I am glad that it got Meredith out of her date with Riggs. I don’t know what it is about him, but I don’t like him at all. Him calling Maggie out on being needy certainly does not help his case with me.
Riggs has done nothing extraordinary to make me like him, even a little bit. Meredith could do so much better.
Meanwhile, Edwards giving herself a hard time gives me life. She is constantly acting like she’s better than everyone and now that one of her colleagues needs help she bats an eyelash like it’s nothing.
She is absolutely in the right to be mad at herself, she didn’t help Cross and it ended up with it being way worse than what it could’ve been. As she admitted, she didn’t even take his temperature all because he was below her. How much worse can you get?
Anyway, I’m glad that she sees the error in her ways. As for Bailey? Well, that’s something her and Richard are just going to have to work on in the future.
Richard’s pettiness is A+ when it comes to helping Bailey. He’s right – he does know more than Bailey and knows more about the job. Instead of them fighting like this all of the time I think that they need to work it out and become a team.
Richard and Bailey have already proven that they make one hell of a team, so they need to get over it and get back to that.
I love Bailey with all of my heart, but sometimes I miss Richard as chief. When Richard was chief we had all the drama we do now, but we also got valuable teaching lessons. Richard giving Edwards a valuable teaching experience is something that I miss. Instead, now it’s all drama all the time.
Speaking of drama, why can’t Amelia stop freezing Owen out? Her comment about their friends was completely unnecessary.
Overall “What’s Inside” is a pretty fantastic episode with amazing acting, especially from Kelly McCreary.
- They’re trying to make us like Riggs by having him be friends with Arizona, but I’m not falling for it. He has to prove himself to me.
- I’m kind of to the point where I want Owen to break things off with Amelia for good. She can’t keep acting like this for no reason.
- “You got your work wife back, now go get your real wife back,” is the official quote of the night. Miranda Bailey is spilling all the tea.
