Last night saw Derek defy the surgical odds and the Chief of Surgery and not only come out victorious, but with a Zen-like mentality and peace that was inspiring to us all.
When the hospital's lab tech, Isaac, tells Derek he has the mother of all spinal tumors and wants him to operate, McDreamy doesn't know if he can. Fortunately, Isaac does.
Isaac has full confidence, even after Derek opens him up for 10 hours the first time and doesn't do a darn thing. You'll get it the next day, Isaac says, and Derek pulls it off.
Directed by Chandra Wilson, the episode revolved around only this story, with other characters and plots on the periphery, but still brilliantly done. Can someone say Emmy?

Dehydrated and stressed but Zen, Derek is determined not to lose this fight.
