[There are spoilers ahead for last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy.]
Alright, Grey's fans. Gather 'round for maybe the most bonkers/absurd Grey's article you'll read this season. During last night's episode, Tom Koracick had to operate on his ex-wife's son, who had a brain tumor that had spread to his spine. That was plenty of drama in and of itself, but fans of the show noticed something pretty off during the operating scene. It looked like there was a training dummy where the child's body should be. No, I'm not kidding.
I'm going to provide you with some screenshots of the scene, so you know what we're dealing with here. Fair warning, the photo quality isn't perfect!
I mean, I don't want to be the definitive authority on whether that is a real person or not, but... I'm skeptical. Fans on Reddit had a pretty good time poking fun at it. "What in the dollar store mannequin..." one fan wrote. Someone responded, "I seriously thought they just had a random prop there for some reason. And then I realized it was supposed to be the kid and I felt dumb. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that it looked extremely fake." The best response, though, was this one: "I really hope that crash test dummy survives to see another airbag."
Here's what the actor playing Guthrie looked like in other scenes.
Let me just say that if the show did decide to use a dummy there, I totally get it. That does not look like a super comfy position to put a child actor in! Especially considering how long it can take to shoot a scene. And it's also totally possible the fans are wrong and it is actually the real actor in there, in which case, we have even more questions for whoever lit this scene....
