Callie and Owen are moving forward with Callie’s robotic limb lab, but they come to a head when one of the wounded warriors takes one too many steps, falls, hits his head, and finds himself in a coma.

The president of the United States sends a woman to offer Derek the job he previously turned down. This intensifies his fight with Meredith. Amelia, who was told by Arizona about Dr. Herman's supposedly inoperable brain tumor, thinks she can save Dr. Herman's life. Jo confronts Alex about his friendship with Meredith; however, Alex reassures her that she is the love of his life, that the house is a place where everyone is welcome to stay, and that's how it'll always be.

Derek calls the woman back to accept the job during the fight and then walks away.
