Grey Sloan Memorial not only welcomes a new transfer resident, but also a patient who´s the topic of conversation after accidently sending his sex tape to his entire congregation. Meanwhile, Richard wrestles with how to progress his relationship with Maggie when an old friend visits the hospital, and April brings in a case of a young boy from the Middle-East.
