|“||When I was little, I once asked my mother, "How do you tell people such bad news?" "You tell them the truth," she said, "but you tell them the best version of the truth you can come up with." My mother also never told me I had a little sister, so grain of salt. My mother said, "Tell the truth. Just tell the best version of the truth you can." Because the truth is gonna come out sometime. And the one thing you can't do with the truth is hide from it. Because the truth is gonna come looking until it finds you.||”|
Meredith turns heads when she shows up to work done up and ready for her blind date later that day, while Alex makes a questionable decision in order to save a patient. Meanwhile, the burden of knowing Teddy's secret keeps Maggie up at night, ultimately making her decide she has to tell someone.

Natalie, 40, came into the ER after collapsing outside after evacuating her apartment building for a fire. She coded in the ER and they resuscitated, but then she coded again. They took her into surgery. They believed she'd had a recent heart attack, which seriously weakened her heart. In surgery, Maggie placed a temporary LVAD in order to take the pressure off her heart. After surgery, Maggie said there was only a slim chance Natalie would wake up again. She coded again in her room. They were able to bring her back, but they warned her husband that they believed it was time to say goodbye.
- Smoke inhalation
- Pulmonary bleb
- Continuous nebulation
- Surgical extraction
Julius, 18, came into the ER after an apartment fire with smoke inhalation. He insisted that he was fine, but they ran an x-ray, which showed a bleb on his lung. He'd had it since he was a baby, but he declined to have it removed because his insurance didn't cover it and he couldn't afford it. He tried to leave against medical advice, but he had trouble breathing. Alex examined him and secretly cut him to make it look like he had a penetrating wound to his chest. They took him into surgery to remove his bleb. The surgery went well and he was told he'd be okay.
- Miranda Bailey (general surgeon)
- Post-exposure exam
Andy and Dean got examined after a fire incident. She said they were both fine.
