Shane Ross has been struggling with his guilt for the part he played in Heather’s death a few months ago and when “Grey’s Anatomy” episode 7, “Thriller” hit airways on Thursday, Oct. 31, he thought he was being haunted on her behalf.
The ER was busy on Halloween night and the crazies were out en masse. Shane was doing triage when he came upon an elderly woman, blind in one eye who asked to see Heather by name. Momentarily caught off guard, he didn’t know how to respond when the woman refused his help. He set out to find Bailey to get help with her.
When he returned, the woman was gone and Bailey questioned his sanity. No sooner had Bailey left than the woman was back. She wouldn’t reveal her name but kept talking about Heather and how “Heather is always here” in an ominous voice. Shane was definitely spooked until Stephanie explained it was probably one of the homeless people Heather used to help off the books.
The old woman wandered off into the hospital, presumably to look for Heather when she and another patient both collapsed in the hallway. Fortunately, Dr. Karev was searching for the other patient and found them both.
Back in the ER, Shane convinced the old woman to talk to him and she admitted Heather had been secretly treating her for asthma and giving her inhalers. Shane followed suit and gave her medication to take with her. He also told her he would be her doctor and for her to seek him out if she needed anything. When she asked if was as good a doctor as Heather was, he paused, said no and then added, ‘but I’m going to be.’
Later, at Joe’s, Shane is unexpectedly joined by Cristina who has just dealt with the weirdness between her and Meredith. He offers to buy her a drink and turns on those come-hither eyes. She considers the offer and accepts. Nothing else happened in the episode but the cliffhanger is there.
Tune in next week to find out if Shane and Cristina end up as more than coworkers on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Check back here often for more updates, recaps and spoilers as they become available.
