I couldn't help but think about Gob from Arrested Development when the magician corrected his assistant by calling the magic tricks "illusions" and then again when he said he couldn't reveal the secret because of the alliance. I thought for sure it was a direct shout out.

I hadn't considered Callie potentially being angry with Arizona - that's a really interesting theory. What makes you come to that conclusion?
Mostly it's just what I know about human pysch and the nature of grief. How can she not be somewhat angry, given the way Arizona pushed her to promise something impossible? How can she not resent that Arizona was on the plane when she didn't need to be? She knows intellectually that it's not rational, but that doesn't make it any easier. She's probably mad at the world, too, really. That's why she's pushing so hard to fix things; get life back to 'normal.' That's why she wanted to move on and have that celebratory dinner. She needed to pretend it was all past them, even though she knows it isn't.
I think Sara Ramirez has shown us that Calllie suspects Arizona may have PTSD - watch 9x15 again, the beginning part at the Grey's, where Arizona is attacking Derek. She shows us in her reactions to Arizona's diatribe that she senses something is wrong. She's not qualified to deal with it, though, and she's scared to push too hard.

Arizona is possibly going to cheat. Not entirely uninteresting.
If this were a show with better writers, I'd say this was part of a storyline which developed Arizona's character and finally convinced her that she could still be a sexy, desirable woman even without two legs. I know Callie's been telling her that, but hearing it from a completely new source is a whole different matter than hearing it from her wife. This, however, is Grey's Anatomy, which has some of the crappiest writers around, so it'll either all come to nothing or it'll be contrived and boring.

Did not see Jo getting beaten up coming at all. Seriously? It came out of nowhere. It's like the writers realised midway through the season that Alex/Jo were an epic fail as a potential couple so just said threw Peckwell being an abuser out there as a last ditch effort at making them rootable. The writers have spent way too much time on Jo as it is. It's all just so forced. Nothing with her or her relationship with Alex feels natural.
I like Stephanie as a background character but I'm not overly into what happens with her and Jackson. I prefer him with April.
Sick of the others blaming Jackson by the way. He's the only one out of all of them who seems capable of calling the shots and running the hospital. At least he can man up and isn't afraid to be the bad guy.

So, one last shot before the today's episode. I watched diagonally.
The magician story was a metaphor for Crowen and Calzona(?)
Magician- Cristina and Callie
Assistant- Lauren and Ethan
Wife- Owen and Arizona.
The magnanimous magician freed his spouse to let her be happy with another person. Does this means Cristina and Callie willingly freeing their partners to let them be happy with another choice of life?
