BWW Recap: It's a Tale of Two Tumors on GREY'S ANATOMY
by Lauren Gienow - May 6, 2017

Thursday night's episode of GREY'S ANATOMY, written by Elizabeth R.

As the medical cases play out, we also get an update on the Arizona/Eliza romance, and the Meredith/Riggs romance (and Maggie's stance on it). We also see Edwards finally reach her boiling point with the existential crisis she has quietly having all season. Oh, and I'm pretty sure Alex is tracking down Jo's estranged, abusive husband…so that should be interesting. (more...)
