*It's addiction week on "Grey's Anatomy" but not in a fun can't-stop- eating-cookie-dough way, but in a dreary "the hardest part of kicking a habit is wanting to kick it" lecture-from-Voiceover-Meredith way.
This week's guest patients at Horny Hospital are Meth Lab Dad and Meth Lab Mom and their Meth Addict Baby, their Kindly Old Neighbor, and their Meth Addict House Guest.
Meth-lab Dad is really a nice guy but resorted to making meth in the kitchen to make money after losing his job. Okay, that's one way to handle unemployment -- we also hear Starbucks is hiring.
The Meth Lab Family and friends turn up at HH when a batch of stuff blows up, leaving Meth Lab Mom with a gaping hole where her abdomen used to be, Kindly Old Neighbor badly burned, and Meth Lab House Guest with internal bleeding and the DT's; Meth Lab Baby isn't too badly injured in the blast, but has the DT's too and suffers a stroke. Meth Lab Dad survived the blast with just a few scratches -- the rotter.
Meredith and McDreamy, meanwhile, are clearly addicted to breaking up and making up and have become very talented at it. This week, after break-up sex, they've decided to base their relationship on sex and mockery -- the mockery bit making no sense, except that it lets them shorten the latest iteration of their relationship to "S&M." cute, huh?
Alex is addicted to messing things up -- this week by confronting Meth Lab Dad before social services has Meth Addict Baby in its hands, causing MLD to steal his child from the hospital bed.
Izzie is addicted to making those around her miserable -- most recently her BFF George with whom she thinks she is in love -- and urging them to do terrible, unscrupulous things, like telling George not to tell his wife he's over her because she, Callie, is Izzie's boss and that would make things uncomfortable for Izzie.
George is addicted to shagging an impressive array of women, all things considered.
Speaking of addicts, Diahann Carroll returns for one last gasp as Dr. Burke's Mama; she sits in the Horny Hospital waiting room, and pretty much everyone comes and kisses the ring and suffers her know-it-all-isms:
"Were you being inappropriate or were you being selfish" she sniffs at Meredith, in re Mer's "It's so over" speech at Christina's aborted wedding to her son, McHomophobe.
Yeah, if she's so smart, how come she doesn't know sonny is now over at NBC's "Bionic Woman" working in the lab?
"An honorable man knows when to walk away," Mother Burke lectures McDreamy later in the show, allegedly in re her own son walking out on Christina, but you and I know it's really about McDreamy and Mer's S&M, because we've come to know all of show creator Shonda Rhime's Bag of Metaphors in the course of the show's three seasons.
Does that make us addicts?
