Things got nasty on Grey's Anatomy Season 12 Episode 22.
Callie's lawyer was more than willing to play dirty, despite her supposedly superior witnesses. Unfortunately, those tactics didn't seem to impress the judge.
Below, TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Kelly Thompson and Elizabeth Harlow discuss hookups, breakups... and the one and only Prince. Ready to join the debate?
Arizona ended up with full physical custody, but do you think that she'll keep Sofia away from her Mama?
Stacy: Arizona is pretty angry at Callie right now, and rightfully so, but I don't think she'll keep Sofia from her. My guess is Callie will not end up moving (assuming Sara Ramirez resigns her contract) and stay in Seattle. Then Callie and Arizona will make up and work something out.
Kelly: Agreed. Arizona would never keep Sofia away from Callie. Arizona never wanted their arrangement to change in the first place. Callie went to some low places during the trial and Arizona has every right to be upset but she wouldn't make Sofia suffer because she's upset. I also think Callie will end up not moving to New York.
Elizabeth: I agree as well. It would hurt Sofia too much to not see Mama, and Arizona would never do that.
Will Callie and Penny survive the custody decision?
Stacy: I don't think so. As I said before, I think they'll break up and Callie will stay. I can't see her moving without Sofia.
Kelly: I honestly don't know. Penny didn't force Callie into making the decision to move but Callie will need a scapegoat. Penny will go to New York, Callie will stay and that will probably be the end of them at least for this season.
Elizabeth: Like Stacy, I think they're heading for a breakup. Even though Penny didn't force Callie into moving (if anything, Callie pressured her), anger isn't rational. I can totally see Callie blaming her.
Do you think using Prince's "Nothing Can Compare 2 U" was planned in advanced, or a tribute to the music legend?
Stacy: That would be a pretty crazy coincidence if it was planned in advance. I imagine they went back and added that in after he died.
Kelly: They definitely decided on adding the song at the last minute.
Elizabeth: It may have been a last minute addition, but it really worked.
Who do you think is going to hook up and who do you think is going to propose? Who would you *like* to see do the dirty deed or get hitched?
Stacy: I don't know. I could see Owen proposing, but he and Cristina jumped into their marriage, so I feel like he should take this one slower.. Maybe Jackson will propose to April again, but I think they need to move slowly too. They're just working on being friends again right now. I'd like to see Alex and Jo get married, they've been together a really long time now.
Kelly: Looks like Maggie and Riggs could be the hook up couple which I would be totally cool with. As for the propose couple, no clue. I can't even remember if Jo accepted Alex's proposal since they have shared basically no screen time together lately.
Elizabeth: I'm just praying that Meredith and Alex aren't hooking up. I'm pretty sure that it'll be Maggie and Riggs, but that promo has me spooked. As for wedding bells, my bets are Owen and Amelia (I'm infering from the finale summary) and Kyle and Stephanie. It would be a good way for her to temporarily exit.
How can Stephanie get back in Kyle's good graces? Would you forgive her?
Stacy: She should have broken up with him in person, but I don't think that's completely unforgivable. If she wants him back, she needs to do something to win him back and show that she can handle being in the waiting room.
Kelly: She will get back in his good graces and they will get back together which is what will lead her to leaving the show.
Elizabeth: It's hard to say if I'd forgive her without knowing what exactly was in the note. But impending death and/or suffering can also change a person's perspective on forgiveness.
Favorite scene or quote!
Stacy: I absolutely loved Bailey on the stand, questioning if these same questions would be asked if Arizona were a man, and saying she wouldn't put a woman's success in the "con" column.
Kelly: I loved Arizona's time on the stand during the trial. She shut down the thought that she isn't a parent to Sofia just because she was able to partake in conceiving her (which I knew was going to get brought up but I still can't believe Callie would allow that). Her last bit about Sofia being healthy and happy no matter the outcome and her need to ensure that for other parents was brilliant. Jessica Capshaw was truly epic in this episode.
Elizabeth: Capshaw did do an absolutely amazing job, and I loved how many of the witnesses gave testimony that shut down some gross stereotypes. But I also really liked Jackson and April hashing custody out. I'm hoping they don't need it, but I liked how they were respectful of each other, and shared some humor. It was some much needed healing.
