I don’t like this new doctor at all. She is pushy and reckless with patients. There wasn’t a whole lot of Karev in this episode either which was a shame. Is the new doctor a love interest for Arizona? Was that what that memorable business was all about? Meredith wasn’t all that important either. Better luck next time Grey’s.
