#TGIT Recap Week 2

To see last week's recap click here.
Shondaland's Thursday Night Lineup continues.  We know that there's a lot that goes on each show, which means that there's a lot to forget each week. Here's a good summary for each so you can be ready to watch the next episodes tonight!

Grey's Anatomy
Puzzle with a Piece Missing
  In this episode, we see the story basically from Maggie's point of view. We follow her around the whole time from case to case as she tries to make things work in Seattle.  She's trying hard to avoid the one person she came to meet, her sister Meredith.  She fails terribly at this, meeting Zola and Derek at lunch, where Richard is trying to push her to talk to Meredith saying, "when the world gives you more than you expected, you end up glad you got it".
  Throughout the episode, she moves from case to case with Wilson on her service, except she can't remember her name.  Jo tells Maggie that Alex will probably get the board seat.  When she brings that up with him (and his boss) in the operating room, he gets fired.  Consequently, Jo is kicked off her service, even though she comes back time and time again.
  Quick Side Story: Remember the McNeils from last season?  You know... the family with all the heart problems that Cristina worked on?  Well, she had Bailey run some tests in her genome lab, and they found the cause was a genetic mutation only discovered a week before.
  Callie and Arizona keep having their argument about having a kid vs Arizona taking a new job.  Well, they've finally decided to let Arizona take the job!  
  She ends up becoming friends with Amy, Derek's sister who says that Meredith is "hard to get to know, but she's worth knowing".  Not too later on in the episode, she ends up telling Meredith on her way out.  Meredith thinks that she's lying and wants to know what she wants.  "You are five years younger than me, if my mother were pregnant, I would have known."

Get your popcorn ready!

The State of the Union
Olivia meets Cyrus, now a vegetarian, in the park.  He blackmails her into doing a favor for him.  His explanation... "Craving meat really brings out the worst in me".
  The State of the Union address is coming up in just a couple days and a lot of fixing is needed.  Lizzy Bear is trying her hardest to ruin David's chances of being Attorney General, which happens to involve his little incident with his "beat up" girlfriend.  
  If this isn't enough, the media is taking pictures of "Mental Mellie" mourning her 16 year old son.  Once she has found a new favorite food, fried chicken, the White House has decided enough is enough.  She needs to attend the State of the Union or the fate of the presidency is in jeopardy.  "Gabby" of all people is ultimately the one who convinces her to go.
  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Jake is looking at the details behind Harrison and his girlfriend's deaths.  He tries to involve David, who denies. Towards the end of the episode, he finally finds one of our favorite B613 agents... Charlie!
  Once again, Huck and Quinn's relationship is put under the microscope. The drama is endless.  Olivia just found out about them "insesting", as Abby calls it, so she talks to Huck about it.  He, of course, says nothing, because that's what Huck does.  I really wish he'd just tell us what happened with his family already!
  After the State of the Union, which the President killed, Mellie breaks down.  It is very, very depressing to watch as Fitz goes to comfort her. At the end of the episode, Cyrus hesitantly sleeps with a guy he met at the bar.  I know what  you're thinking.  What's the big twist with here?  The guy from the bar is working for Lizzy Bear!

How to Get Away with Murder
It's All Her Fault
  There's speculation over the death of Lila Stangard, the student who was found dead last episode.  Annalise thinks Sam, her husband, is the one who killed her.  Multiple times through the episode, she checks Sam's phone for messages about Lila.  She even asks if he slept with her, which he denies. In class she poses the question on if you really know who somebody is.  
  Also, Connor could not be more obvious about the fact that he's gay, except he hasn't admitted it yet.  He even uses the same guy to get information for the case of the week, but has a little bit more fun with it. Nate, Keating's boyfriend, broke up with her.  She still turns to him for help with her problem with Sam.
  Wes's neighbor, Rebecca, asks him if she can use his shower in the middle of the night.  He sees that she hides something, but he doesn't know what it is.  Later, Wes notices that the guy that was in Rebecca's apartment last episode was arrested for the murder of Lila Stangard.  By the end of the episode, she's also arrested, and he finds out she's had multiple drug charges.  He checks to see what she hid, and it's a phone.
  During the time of the murder, we find out Wes basically rigged the coin toss so they had to go back for Sam's dead body.  While he's buying lighter fluid and such at the gas station, he also buys a phone. He calls someone and tells them that he'll protect them.  He goes to a random motel room and meets up with none other than next door neighbor Rebecca.  He kisses her and tells her for a third time that she's going to be okay.

There you have it!  Now that you're caught up, don't miss TGIT tonight starting at 8/7c on ABC!
