|Pilot:Â The storm that led to Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital being overrun with patients rages on. Owen wants to assemble the board to possibly shut down the ER. The members are dealing with many personal issues. Meredith and Derek just had a baby. Arizona just revealed her affair to Callie, who then clues in all of their fellow docs in on this breaking news. An engaged April confronts an injured Jackson about the status of their relationship, while Alex and Jo look for an original place to get intimate. It seems the adventurous Dr. Karev has had sex in every on-call room in the land. Bailey is trying to track down Richard, but no one knows heâ€™s been electrocuted in the generator room. Cops and firefighters roll into the hospital with injuries from a mudslide. There are civilian casualties as well. Thereâ€™s no way the ER can close now. Owen works on a firefighter captain named Lenny. The guyâ€™s in bad shape. Also hurting is a woman named Lydia. Sheâ€™s worried about the fate of her house. Bailey worries about not having enough general surgeons around. She orders Shane to find Richard. That never happens. Shane tricks Heather into doing the search. So off she goes. Heather reaches the area where Richard is hurt. One step into a pool of water has her being electrocuted, too. THWACK! Heather slams her head while crashing to the floor. Shane finds Richard and Heather. Both are in bad shape. Cristina works a balloon pump into Richard as Bailey talks her through the fact that she didnâ€™t rupture his aorta. The patient has a steady heartbeat. Cristina Yang isnâ€™t a hugger, but that doesnâ€™t stop Bailey from forcing one on her. Richard isnâ€™t out of the woods though. Bailey wants to open him up. Cristina believes thatâ€™s the wrong move. The decision on what to do doesnâ€™t belong to either one of them though. Richard made Meredith his go-to person for situations such as this.
