I thought this episode was significantly better than the last. I think the show is better when they have several separate storylines rather than with the last one where they just had the interconnected one. I enjoyed the part with Alex and the guy that had bad luck. It's nice when they have Alex's good character come out. Meredith wasn't quite as annoying as usual. It was good that she stood her ground with Derek. I thought the shrink/meredith in the elevator was a nice touch. I also liked it when Christina went and yelled at the shrink. And I'm starting to like Callie's glossy hair better.
