The attending surgeons continued rallying behind Richard which left April on the outside on her first day as the interim Chief of General Surgery. It didn't help that her primary patient kept calling her 'Dr. Not Grey,' which only further emphasized Meredith's absence via suspension. This continued workplace tension lead to something we don't see very often these days, a lunchroom scene for the attending surgeons which let them blow off a little steam about their continued disagreement with Bailey's ousting of Richard from the residency program. Owen sat in the middle of it all, proclaiming himself Switzerland - neutral and focused on the bigger issue of keeping the peace - spoken like a true Army vet.
Not surprisingly, his concern was about April's state of mind as we saw her walk hesitatingly into the lunchroom. When April wavered about joining her friends before deciding she probably wouldn't be welcome, Owen looked pointedly at his protege and reminded his fellow surgeons that they were all ultimately on the same side in wanting what's best for the hospital, the staff, and their patients.
Elsewhere in the hospital: Richard and Catherine couldn't keep their marital conflicts out of the hospital; Bailey continued to bluster her way through naming Eliza as the new head of the residency program; Ben's first solo surgery got lost amidst Richard and Bailey's arguing in the OR; Stephanie's solo surgery had a tragic result as her pediatric patient died; Arizona continued arguing with Eliza in attempt to get her to see the flaws in her approach to her work at Grey Sloan Memorial; Catherine and April had a rare bonding moment; and Bailey asked Ben to take sides in the conflict at the hospital.
