BWW Recap: Everyone's Got Secrets on this Week's GREY'S ANATOMY
by Lauren Gienow - Feb 10, 2017

Last night's episode of GREY'S ANATOMY was all about secrets—specifically the deep dark personal secrets that are just too revealing to tell anybody. The episode was aptly titled “None of Your Business”. Several characters navigated romantic, professional and familiar relationships while keeping a secret close to the chest. By the end of the episode, most of those secrets remained unspoken. This might seem frustrating to viewers who just want our favorite characters to open up and share…but at the same time, it is pretty darn realistic. (more...)
