“How to Get Away With Murder” is known for its ruthless court battles, so it’s no surprise that this Thursday’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” truly split fans. Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) have been bickering for weeks over their daughter and finally went before a judge to argue their case over who should get sole custody of Sofia (Eva Ariel Binder). Callie, Sofia’s birth mother, wanted her daughter to move to New York with her and Penny (Samantha Sloyan). Meanwhile, Arizona, who adopted Sofia before divorcing Callie, didn’t want to lose her daughter to the East Coast. It was something that not only put a strain on the exes but their friends as well. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and more were forced to pick sides between the dueling moms.
The final moments of the episode revealed the judge’s heartbreaking decision. Only one of them could get sole custody of Sofia, and the judge decided to grant it to Arizona.
Callie was devastated to hear the news, and her relationship with Penny might be the next thing she loses. Too bad Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) couldn’t crossover from “How to Get Away With Murder” to help out.
