|Pilot:Â We all ask ourselves the « what if » question. Let’s now take a look at the way things could have been at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital. Ellis Grey never got Alzheimer’s. She married Richard Webber and became head of Seattle Grace where her daughter works. Callie and Owen are married with children. She’s a heart surgeon and he’s coping with some PTSD from the war by having online chats with someone named Teddy. Derek is an underachiever who is married to a pregnant Addison. Bailey is a soft-spoken, timid doc. Seriously! Meredith Webber shows her sparkly new engagement ring to her personâ€”April. Who is she to marry? Why that would be an overly-enthusiastic Alex Karev. Did you catch how we said April is Mer’s person? That’s because Cristina is an angry island who has alienated all of her colleagues. This includes Dr. Charles Percy, who did NOT die in a hospital shootout. He’s alive and well and smitten with a supremely-uninterested April. There’s some reminiscing about the days when Cristina slept with Preston Burke, who eventually fled the state. There’s talk of the time a crazy lady named Izzie stole a transplant heart for a patient she was sleeping with. Iz was fired after Meredith turned her in. Alex recalls a guy named George, call him 007, who failed his intern exam and was never heard from again. Funny how things work out, isn’t it? Ellis steals a surgery away from Mandy. By the way, Mandy is what folks are calling Dr. Miranda Bailey these days. Mandy wants Alex to tell Ellis about a potential problem because she’s too afraid to do so herself. The information is never conveyed. Ellis ends up being embarrassed in front of a bunch of reporters hanging in the gallery. She wants Mandy Bailey fired.
