I thought so, too - one minute Arizona is cautioning Eliza about her approach, and the next they're giggling together like a pair of tweens on their way to their first dance. There was no development to their relationship - it just went from 0 to 60 off camera. There's been no development in Eliza's character, either - one minute she's reviled for butting in to an entrenched system, and the next she's the Best Teacher Evah.
I'm really tired of Jo ... The pouting, whining, the big, teary eyes - I just wish she'd spill her whole damn story already and be done with it! Until then, I don't care about her or her past. And I'm still trying to figure out how someone as young as she is could have packed in so much experience in such a short life ...
I'm not because at least Meredith understands the hierarchy of the hospital - the hierarchy that she herself helped set up. She knows she can't go throwing her weight around because she's on the board.
Meredith's suspension is not a board issue - board of directors do not meddle (or at least they shouldn't) in personnel issues. The board's job is to hire a CEO, set policy, and take on fiduciary responsibility for the organization. Nothing more.
