Grey's Anatomy Recap: Is it Game Over for Amelia and Owen?

by at .

Thursday's Grey's Anatomy was a real tear-jerker. 

Picking up in the immediate aftermath of Betty revealing she's more of a Brittany and has been hiding from her parents, Owen and Amelia realized they needed to help out somehow. 

Amelia's Mistake

Unfortunately for Betty, her parents showed up at the hospital. Amelia was the one to break the news about Leo. 

The issue this presented was that Amelia and Owen were the ones caring for the child. 

The good news was that Amelia was on hand to open up about her own struggles with addiction to Betty's mother. 

"I’m an addict, too. I did all of that. I ran away, I lied, I broke my mother’s heart over and over again,” Amelia said, adding:

“When I got clean, she was the last person I wanted to see. The shame was too great. I’m sure you’re a good mom, and I promise you, your little girl is still in there.”

The big mistake on Amelia's part was that Betty's parents decided to use that against Amelia and Owen, branding Amelia, "another drug addict."

Amelia's actions did not sit well with Owen, either, because it meant that Betty's parents were likely going to secure custody of the child. 

Meanwhile, Bailey started to grow concerned about her future at the hospital, especially after Alex started to get a lot of recognition for his interim role. 

It all came to a head when Alex's photo was put up on the wall, and Bailey decided it was time for herself to be the one in charge again.

In a truly shocking scene, Alex admitted that he was not going to let Bailey have the job back just yet. 

"I kicked this job’s ass, just like Weber told me to,” Alex said, confirming that he would be keeping the job until his six-month contract was up. 

In the end, it gave Bailey the urge to say that she was proud of him. Alex has stood up for himself ever since he walked through the front door of the hospital. 

He's killing it at the job, so why should he end it so soon?

Then there was Meredith, who was on the DeLuca train, but had a big problem:

Maggie once dated the same man, so Meredith wanted her sister's seal of approval before going full steam ahead.

“He’s a good guy. I don’t think he’s ever not a good guy. He’s got your back,” Maggie ultimately said to Meredith.  

This came after Maggie had to perform surgery on someone who bullied her in med school. 

Meredith assisted her with the surgery, but it was clear the patient had a profound effect on Maggie's time gearing up to be a doctor.
