GREY’S ANATOMY – “All Star” – Teddy makes a challenging decision. Meanwhile, Maggie and Winston aren’t on speaking terms, and Link leans on Jo for emotional support as he preps for a surgery on a well-known athlete. Simone and Lucas are surprised by an unlikely visitor. THURSDAY, MARCH 2 (9:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on ABC. (ABC/Liliane Lathan)

Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

NEXT LEVEL CHEF: I can’t believe a fish fell OFF THE PLATFORM AND THEY WERE ABLE TO SALVAGE IT? What a break for Team Gordon.

It’s so weird how many contestants have forgotten key ingredients this season. Two forgot proteins in this episode. A couple forgot bread for their sandwiches last week. I don’t feel like it was this bad in the first season?

GHOSTS: The interesting thing about GHOSTS is that even when there’s conflict for the characters, it generally doesn’t get to the point where it explodes in a major way. But this episode was the first time it felt like it might lead to a real, uncomfortable situation as Sam lied about being able to publish a book about Isaac. We, as an audience, knew the lie wouldn’t be able to last for long, but then Trevor escalated things by writing about it on her Facebook page and Sam had to admit the ruse to her old classmate.

I am, however, very, very glad it ended up working out, despite the temporary heartbreak: The initial publisher wanting the book because they thought someone else bought it felt very much like the recent AMERICAN AUTO episode where Payne got entangled with a shady company because they thought others wanted in.

I love how hard Thor tried to be better for Flower. He can’t immediately become a different person for her (nor should he), but I’m glad he’s trying. (And that she’s acknowledging she also likes him.)

Hetty and Trevor….oh boy. Guessing that won’t remain a secret for long now. Let’s see how they try and get out of this.

GREY’S ANATOMY: Part of me wishes they had shown the step-by-step abortion procedure in one of the episodes leading up to Meredith’s exit. GREY’S has done incredible work in showcasing things that don’t get shown on TV, and I really hope the audience stuck around post-Ellen Pompeo’s farewell to see this.

Bailey sending in Amelia to help Teddy back Richard into a corner while she was negotiating was brilliant. It’ll be interesting to see how Teddy fares as the boss…she’s been through and survived literal war/deployment, but, as we’ve seen, this job is a lot.

I’m sorry to Jo and Link, but I just cannot get invested in them as a couple. I really wish they would keep them as friends. (I do not get why I have this disconnect, when on paper they check a lot of relationship tropes I tend to enjoy. Alas.)

DAISY JONES & THE SIX: Hi, I love it. The early part of the story was the narrative portion I was most curious about how they would adapt. There is a sizable chunk in the book setting up Daisy and Billy’s respective paths before they collide. When I first listened to the audiobook, I wondered if they’d condense it all to a single episode and then have them meet at the end of the pilot, but it really needed more time. I’m glad they took the approach they did. (I do have to say, it may be the first time ever I wished episodes were longer? I would have loved to get a little bit more about Daisy’s childhood.)

But, my God, when Daisy and Billy first sing together? I got chills. (Literally.) The show worked for me before they interacted, but you needed these two characters to click in a real, undeniable way, and they did. Their instant chemistry and differing approaches to everything (including their takeaway from the recording session) was perfect.

A few more stray thoughts about the first three episodes…

  • In every version of this story, Camila deserves better. I don’t know if Billy would have survived her leaving him, but him cheating on her while pregnant and then being a ghost for the start of their daughter’s life? Oh, I don’t know how I’d ever get over that.
  • Teddy is so funny?! But, at the same time, I love the unexpectedly touching father-son bond he has with Billy. (And quasi-father-daughter bond with Daisy.)
  • I’m really glad they kept the interview format for the series. The book works really well as an oral history, and if we hadn’t had the characters reflecting on the rise and fall of the band, it would have been a very, very different story. The video interview works well here.
  • I am already obsessed with AURORA, but I hope we get The Dunne Brothers/The Six’s songs released soon, too.
