|Pilot:Â Callie freaks out on a sales clerk over pantyhose. She apologizes by buying a whole lot of hosiery. Sheâ€™s under a lot of pressure, as she has a big day coming up. To understand what thatâ€™s all about, we jump back one month to when she was served papers in a lawsuit. Four months before that, Cristina recommended pro snowboarder Travis Reed to Callie. The athlete was in the market for a new hip. Callie got this news at Meredithâ€™s baby shower. It was when she and Arizona were still together and making plans to have another child. Travis Reed is a charming personality who needs a new hip to compete in the Olympics. He wants something called the Petersen Hip. This isnâ€™t something Callie has ever used before. Still, Travis has faith that she can fix him up. There was a complication during the surgery. Callie refuses to admit negligence. She wonâ€™t settle. The case is headed to court. She needs to get some new clothes, hence the pantyhose. Arizona notices her trying on her new undergarment when she stops by to pick up Sofia. She also notices her wearing her wedding ring. Callie explains that the lawyers told her to do so for the jury. Callieâ€™s pals agree to take support shifts as she heads into trial. Owen is first up to take a seat behind her in the courtroom. Callie worries about a run in her pantyhose until she sees Travis Reed come into the room in his wheelchair. His lawyer argues that Callie made a careless mistake during surgery. Jumping back, Travis started to crash during the operation. Jo testifies that Callie knowingly left a sponge inside the patient. This may have led to an infection a few weeks later as well as a heart murmur. Callie rushed her patient into surgery which left him with no hip.
