|Pilot:Â Look out, Addisonâ€™s back at Seattle Grace. But itâ€™s only temporary. She’s in town because her brother, Archer, needs help from the best neurosurgeon she knows. Of course, said neurosurgeon just happens to be her McDreamy ex-husband. Archer has parasites in his brain. We know. Itâ€™s gross. Theyâ€™re living in little sacks of fluid. Itâ€™s just about impossible to remove the sacks without puncturing them. Doing so would send all the little worms scurrying into Archerâ€™s brain. Told ya it was gross. And at first, Derek doesnâ€™t think Archerâ€™s case is operable. Sam, one of the other doctorâ€™s from Oceanside Wellness, comes up with the idea of suctioning the sacks to drain them before removing them. Derek thinks it might work. Itâ€™s also Archerâ€™s only shot. The surgery is a success and Derek is a hero. Owen and Cristina treat a man whoâ€™s hiding his cancer from his daughter, Beth. Oh, and Beth just happens to be Owenâ€™s ex-fiancÃ©e. Beth is shocked when she sees Owen. She thought he was still in Iraq. We know what youâ€™re thinking. Owen was engaged? Thatâ€™s news to us. Itâ€™s news to Cristina, too. She realizes thereâ€™s a lot she doesnâ€™t know about Owen. What kind of guy breaks up with his fiancÃ©e in a two-line email? And what kind of guy doesnâ€™t tell his mom heâ€™s back from war? We always thought Alex was a complex guy. But Owen blows him away! Izzie creates a series of challenges to help her interns get their medical groove back. Lexie does well but George notices Sadie lagging behind. George tells her she has to let the Chief know sheâ€™s in over her head before she hurts someone. Sadie admits to Meredith she cheated on her entrance exam. She quits the program at Seattle Grace and asks Meredith to go to Europe with her to relive their glory days. We know thatâ€™s just not going to happen. Meredith says, â€œI donâ€™t want to sleep my way through Europe anymore. I want to be here.â€ We want you here too, Mer.
