The doctors of Grey Sloan face a difficult case when racial profiling intersects with their practice when a 12-year-old boy shot by the police is rushed to the E.R. April faces a test of her faith when her pregnant patient turns out to be her jilted ex Matthew's new wife and as she deals with the complications of her case she begins to question her unrelenting faith in God. Meanwhile, in the wake of Paul's accident, Jo finds herself in an unexpected situation and and the racial profiling case unites Bailey and Ben as they are forced to assess how it could have easily been their family's suffering.



"In the course of one day, Job received four messages each with separate news that his livestock, servants and ten children had all died. He continued to be a faithful servant, he still praised God, he persevered. Job's faith was tested and he passed the test and for his faith God rewarded Job with twice what he had before."
"Eloi eloi lama sabachthani - that's what Jesus said on the cross before he died. "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? Job asked the question too but he kept the faith and what did he get for it? Replacement children, PTSD. Was it worth it to have been a faithful servant or would it have been better to just curse God's name from the beginning. Where was God throughout all of Job's suffering and pain? He was winning a bet with Satan. Makes you wonder where he through all the unfairness and inequity and cruelty in the world. Where is he now?"
