News of the incoming mass causalities after a gunman opens fire at a local college hits the staff hard when they must spring into action, even while their own wounds are still fresh. Cristina is tested when she finds herself in a do-or-die situation on the scene while Meredith and Derek's patient forces him to see how the shooting really affected his wife. Arizona doesn't recieve a warm welcome back to the hospital, or from Callie and Teddy marries her patient to save his life.



"To a degree medicine is a science but I would argue that it's also an art. The doctors who see medicine as science only, you don't want them by your side when your bleeding won't stop or when your child is screaming in pain. The clinicians go by the book, the artists follow their guts. The artists feel your pain and they go to extremes to make it stop. Extreme measures. That's where science ends and art begins"
"Surgery is extreme. We cut into your body, take out pieces, and put what's left back together. Good thing life doesn't come with a scalpel because if it did when things started to hurt we'd just cut and cut and cut. The thing is what we take away with a scalpel, we can't ever get back. So, like I said, good thing."
- Meredith Grey
