No but George was still suppose to get hit by a bus, which is something really awful to happen to anyone.
I don't get it. He gets one awful season then he gets hit by a bus. Even if he had survived, he would still have went through months of physical pain.
George is such a gentle character. Having him hit by a bus is such a brutal thing to do to such a gentle character,
We did have a couple of good moments in season 4 and 5. I'm glad for all we got. I know he went through a lot of hell but we got some funny moments, like when he and Meredith played good cop and bad cop.
So I wouldn't have wished he left in season 3.
I just wished he didn't die or, if he did, that he got to be happy a bit before he did.
I did think he looked gorgeous in that last shot. I really thought he looked so beautiful in that uniform.
Well, I mean, the actual hit wouldn't have been shown. It is not about showing that, it was about the moment that took George from being the person that we remembered to the hero he became. Even so, it was the idea. It would've been too brutal to see that. Even for Grey's. There are enough gross violent shows out there. GA doesn't need that.
Something that I've learned is that Shonda says what she WANTS to happen but not what it actually does happen sometimes. It could've changed. I personally would've ended the episode that moment at the bus stop. Since the episode wasn't going to happen, she just gave the outline of it. It would've been too much.
About ER, consider a couple of things: Mark was a lead character and he had cancer (which makes me think this is what they are going to do with Izzie. She'll recover just to kill her in the series finale). It was different but the point is that George wasn't supposed to die. TR quitting pulled the plug on the character.
Yes it'd be better if he had left in season 3. Shonda started destroying him after that. In season 3, she called him the glue of the fab 5, and in season 5, he got completely cut out of them.
It seems George didn't have one happy moment after that. He did pass his exam but that got, what? 5 minutes.
If he left in season 3, he wouldn't have died and we wouldn't have to see him lose all his friends and lose Izzie.
Oh and thanks for the video, I love it.
I'll miss the fab 5.
Yes if they had shown George the last season, it would have been easier to let go. They could even have let him save just one of those five patients who died, just one, and that would have made me feel better, but nothing happened right for him this season.
That,s what I keep remembering. Yes, we didn,t know what he was feeling or thinking but he felt sad and unloved enough to want to join the army.
Did you see his face when the soldier talked about not being needed or loved by anyone outside the army? That,s why he was willing to mutilate himself to go there. Did yous ee George,s face? That,s why he joined.
He wanted to feel needed and accepted, and he didn'T FEEL THIS WAY AT THE HOSPITAL.
All his friends had moved on without him, even Izzie.
I'm a Gizzie fan through and through and this season felt like a huge slap on the face.
They couldn't even leave us their friendship.
I'm a Meredith fan too, and we didn't see her nearly enough.
And anuflas, thank for the video, we all love that scene!!!.
Anuflas, I think that with time things will calm but this definitely will never been forgotten and it will be the reason why many people will stop seeing Grey´s Antomy, she was even considering the idea to replace in some moment Mer for Lexie. That woman is CRAZY!. Yes, she made the show but now is making many fans hated the show. She has to listen the fans if she want people continuing seeing the show.
She made George´s story very irrational this last season, we didn´t know anything about him, about what he was feeling and that made the fans very mad with her.
In the minute he said he was leaving the show she decided finish the story with lexie and in the next episode she start to flirt Mark. If George would been the whole season and in the season finale he die, still will be very sad but it will more easy to let him go.
When Mark died in ER, he not disappeared the whole season, they give an appropriate final to a member for the original cast. I cried a lot when Mark died but
“I wanted to see the moment he leapt in front of the bus,” Rhimes confirms. “I wanted to bookend the episode [so that] the first time you see him leap in front of the bus, it’s really scary. But the second time you see it, he’s a hero.
So yes, she did want to see him leap in front of the bus and make it scary. I didn't want to see that at all.
It would have traumatized me. I'm already traumatized by seeing how hurt he was after the accident.
Thanks for the video. It made me laugh and cry.
I'll miss him so much.
This is what I loved the most about George. He always made me laugh, except for now, where he's making me cry.
I would have loved to see George's last day but during the season 5 finale, not after he was alerady dead.
It would just have made it worst to see him alive knowing he was about to die.
GA is not a violent show, it wouldn't feature the bus actually hitting George. Maybe the episode could've ended when he meets Amanda on the bus station, since we know the rest of the story.
BTW, we only saw AFTER Burke got shot. Mer's drowning wasn't hard violence, brutal, but not violent. I don't think that even the writers could've seen the bus hitting as an option really. They just wanted to show George's last day.
So in memoriam for George...I really, really loved this scene. It was hilarious
OMG you are just a bunch of depressed people! let it go now. Both Shond and TR had their reasons and they are mature people to do whatever they want with their lives... let's move on!
I'll miss George. I wish he hadn't been killed. It's really hard to say goodbye to a character I love so much.
I know TR will do fine. He's a fantastic actor. I'm glad he finally found some peace. I'll just miss him.
Anuflas, I agree about Shonda vs TR. Nobody will ever agree, so it's better to concentrate on George and how much we will miss him.
Hey Cindy, long time no see.
I agree with everything you said.
I loved what TR said in EW. I finally found the magazine (doesn't he look dreamy in it?).
I agree that if George had to die, this was the perfect last shot of him.
I don't know if I'll watch the funeral yet. I almost started crying when I saw his photo with Meredith on that bed.
If I do, I'll cry so much.
I think that this idea is horrible, I don´t want to see George hit by a bus, is already to sad, very sad see our cute, shy, adorable and beatiful George disfigured in that bed and more sad was to see George´coffin . He doesn´t deserve everything they did with the character. That woman is crazy if she think that fans want to see George last moments if the final will be the same: seeing him died. A think it would be a good episode if he survive but that is not going to happened. So, I´m glad that he didn´t accept this episode, but only for the fans could have been very happy if he decided to stay for another season, tried to fix the things with Shonda and gave it to the character and the fans a good end for George. But, I cant´t blame him either, Shonda made to much damaged to George so I wish the best luck to T.R and with George death Grey´s Anatomy for me come to an end.
I apologize for my English.
I'm glad that T.R. isn't coming back if that's how he is going to get used. Totally tacky. They never show anything horrific like that, so I don't know why they would start. If you notice, they only ever show the small things that happen in the hospital. I don't believe we actually saw Burke get shot, and Meredith drowned. I think seeing George get hit by the bus would be too much.
I think this started because of the poster calling TR a spoiled child and saying he didn't care about his fans. It's kind of obvious by making that comment, the TR fans would respond.
I'm tired of the fights too, but to be honest, I also don't trust a word Shonda says.
She might have been honest about this, but it came out like "Look everyone, don't blame me for not writing a proper closure for George. I wanted to but TR, that ungrateful man, is the one who said no."
It really irked a lot of George fans because she hasn't been using him at all the last two years when he was still with the show, and she only wants to give him a story when he's gone and she killed his character off.
Besides, doesn't she think that TR might not be able to come back? He is trying to have a career here and auditioning and searching for work demands a lot of time and a lot of travel.
She acts like he could automatically just drop everything and come do an episode.
Like others asked, why did
I really truly agree with what TR said in this EW cover story... the final image of George in army dress, outside the elevator, looking at Izzie... that final image showing him as a hero and showing his undeniable connection with Izzie... that was the perfect final image of George O'Malley. I wouldn't even want to go back and see Shonda's flashback episode.
If George O'Malley must come to an end, then that final image is how he should go, IMO.
And, for the record, I will cry buckets in the season opening with the funeral and all. I will miss George O'Malley so much. My favorite character.
But I also fully support TR in his decision to leave and continue to wish him all the best.
He is going to shine!
Is this going to become another Shonda vs. TR? It's getting old, isn't it?
You don't know that. If she's the big liar, how can you trust that she wasn't going to do it? We don't know that. I personally think that it was coming without Shonda saying anything. Shonda doesn't blame TR for anything.
If you kill a character, TV shows usually give either the before or after episode to their dedication. In ER, when Mark died, they dedicated the ep. before and it was beautiful. Without seeing the previews, I knew it was coming. It is a proper send off.
I think that the IW situation is ABSOLUTELY irrelevant to this. I don't know why this is an issue anymore. If she wanted to punish him, she should've killed him in S.4. Why is this coming up?
I know that George fans are bitter of the outcome (hell, if they'd killed Derek, I would too) however, I wouldn't hold that much hostility to the woman who created this great show and killed George. Shonda cannot satisfy everyone a
Oh my God, my poor George. I'm crying right now.
I'm glad TR refused. I didn't even want George to die. I certainly didn't want to see him being smashed by a bus. It's hard enough as it is just to watch that photo of him all hurt.
I can't believe Shonda said she wanted to show us the moment he got hit by a bus.
Why would anyone want to see that except if they hate George?
If he had to die, I'd much rather be left with him all beautiful and gorgeous with Izzie, his true love.
She may have planned it but when TR decided to quit, it was when the writers decided to end his life as well. Everyone knows how sweet he is, why do people need the approval of the writers for us to remember him this way? As much as this sucks, it's already done. We should be able to remember him for what he was and not how it ended (yes, I know it's a TV show, whatever) and whose fault was it. It is done. Let's move on and remember the good George.
At least he went out by being the hero and Amanda (the girl he saved) made sure that Mer knew it and the rest will know it too.
Aside from that, I have the weird feeling that we will see Mark redoing his face before he is buried. Like in 2x18. I just want to see a proper send off to George.
Why wasn't Izzie the one to go? :(
The reason why TR didn't do this episode is because he thought the last George scene in the elevator was beautiful and perfect not because he wanted nothing to do with Grey.
I hate how Shonda was saying TR had emotionally walked away like this was the reason when he didn't come back because he loved the elevator scene as the last scene.
I also thought it showed what a huge manipulator she was.
She's the one who emotionally walked away from George the minute he failed his intern exam.
He continue to give everything he got to George and he succeeded in making his 5 minutes of airtime this year truly memorable and amazing just by the sheer will of his talent. It sure wasn't the writing.
She's the one who let us George fans down.
We begged ehr every single week on Grey matter to please give George a story, and she wouldn't.
Because of her, we lost George, and I don't think the George fans will ever forgive her for it and for what she did to TR.
Anuflas, I don't believe at all Shonda had any intention of ever writing an episode for George.
She hasn't written anything for George at all since IW left. Why would she write for him now that he's dead?
I think she is just saying this to try and make people blame him for not coming back when she's the one to blame for him leaving in the first place.
He told her in December he was elaving.
If she wanted this story, then why didn't she make him film those scenes when he was still on contract with Grey?
It's not like TR wouldn't have the time. She gave him nothing to do.
That's why I don't believe her.
Besides, she said she wanted TR to come back for there episodes a month ago, now it was just for one.
I'm with everyone on TWOP and on EW who says the woman lies so much she can't recognize her lies.
