This was actually a good episode.
I felt for Richard, it’s difficult when you are successful and you’re whole family resents you for that success. I can’t blame him for not keeping in touch, who wants to feel bad all the time or walk on eggshells to have a conversation. I’m surprised people are blaming Maggie. My take is her cousin had a serious condition and another surgeon could have had the same result. I think she should have honored the patient’s wishes. You give them options and if they choose the lesser surgeon it’s on them. But I don’t think this is a reflection on her talent.
My only thought with regard to Owen is poor Teddy. Owen still loves Amelia and Teddy should have stayed with Koracik. Also Owen being awful to a patient to get even with Amelia is exactly why Amelia should be with Linc. She’s changed so much for the better since she got rid of Owen.
Richard should just tell Catherine the truth, he didn’t do anything wrong. Why do people keep dumb secrets
I think the episode recipe for success is little to no Meredith
