On Thursday night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Catherine and Bailey have found a consultant to help find their staff issues. The doctors don’t know all of this yet, though. Amelia over explains to Karev her reason for not talking to Owen about their conversation in the last episode. Karev calls her out and says she needs to express her feelings.

Once the doctors get wind of the consultant arriving, they start freaking out. They each start thinking that it’s because of something they’ve done, proving Catherine’s point about everyone’s mistakes. Ben shares these concerns with Webber, who wasn’t aware it was happening either. Webber asks Bailey why he wasn’t consulted and she says it all just happened too fast. Webber offers to meet with her first but Bailey tells him she’s already there.
