Series 8 - 8. Heart-Shaped Box

Heart-Shaped Box

Review by:
David Brown

Callie is encountering difficulties – Ma O’Malley is back, bringing with her the problem for Dr Torres of having to come out as a lesbian to her dead ex-husband’s super-devout Catholic mother. Can she accept Callie’s lifestyle choices?

Elsewhere at Seattle Grace, a harvested heart continues to beat outside the body and becomes a source of inspiration for Cristina; and Richard turns into Obi-Wan Webber after imparting his wisdom to whoever will listen. The final scene creates a humdinger of a cliffhanger: the best of this season so far.
