As TVLine first scooped back in September, Thursday’s change-of-pace hour (9/8c, ABC) splits its focus between Meredith at Seattle Grace and Cristina at the Mayo Clinic.

The Mer-centric portion of the episode finds Ellen Pompeo’s emotionally fragile MD tasked with saving a super-critical patient — an ordeal that forces her to finally confront her sister Lexie’s tragic death.
