|Pilot:Â Dr. Addison Montgomery returns to discover things are a little different at Seattle Grace and yet some things never change. We were totally jazzed to see Kate Walsh take a break from her Private Practice to make a triumphant return to Seattle Grace. Yes, Addison is back, even though she tells everyone sheâ€™s not. Her expertise is needed for a rare prenatal surgery. An unborn babyâ€™s heart is growing outside of his body. Addison will deliver the baby while Erica works on the heart. Alex, Mark, Bailey and the Chief also pitch in. The babyâ€™s surgery is risky. Alex is angered by the optimistic parents, feeling they may be unprepared. His attitude worsens when Rebecca/Ava shows up announcing sheâ€™s pregnant. Izzie examines her in the clinic. The tests results show Rebeccaâ€™s not pregnant (Ava either). You think Izzie will tell Alex? Sometimes that whole doctor-patient confidentiality thing is really annoying. Cristina cons Callie into convincing Erica she should assist on the fetal surgery. The baby is delivered. Alex takes him to Hahn while Addison stays behind to help Bailey stabilize the hemorrhaging mom. Erica tells Alex they could lose the baby if Addison doesnâ€™t get there soon. Cristina jumps in to massage the newbornâ€™s heart. When the baby stabilizes, Hahn still wonâ€™t acknowledge Cristina. She later tells her to stop seeking her approval. Think thatâ€™ll happen? Baby day continues as Izzie informs a couple they are expecting. The news devastates them. The woman is HIV-positive and wants an abortion. Izzie tells them they can still have the baby. Dad is overjoyed but mom is furious. She just doesnâ€™t want to take a chance on infecting the baby. A disheartened Izzie backs off.
