Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Review: The Best Episode Yet? > Comments Page 2
I was with it right up to the point where the cop shot the shooter. What did he do then? waved at Lexy and disappeared. If this is the quality of SWAT teams in the US then God help you in an emergency situation. I struggled to enjoy the rest of the episode after that because I was so annoyed which was a shame because there was some good stuff - particularly the Bailey scenes. The daft thing is that it needen't have been included as it didn't really advance the story.
Haven't seen it in the UK yet, but it sounds like a load of pants.
Simply sensational. I love grey's anatomy but this surpasses other great episodes such as the bomb in the hospital. Michael O'Neille was brilliant. Action, romance, suspense and really kept you guessing. The way Alex was shot and mark and lexie found him, Bailey showing raw emotion when the elevators were off and composing herself, mederedith brushing off a miscarriage and avery saving sheppard in the OR.......the list goes on. Simply phenomenal, reaching the upper echelons of great television. Maybe the best single episodes of television ever.
Suspenseful and definitely edge- of- seat material! I felt like I was in the hospital- my heart pounding at ever attack- and it stopped when a main was at gun point or face to face with the killer, (whom did very well as his character). It was realistic considering today's society and all of the cast played their role at 'words can't describe' level!
A thrilling, edge- of- seat, heart- pumping, emotional and mental challenge- simply phenomenal! So much going on in a non- confusing order and for once- you know things BEFORE the next season!! The cast were very believable and played their characters fantastically! As always, the reflections within were meaningful with reasoning! Amazing!
i thought this episode was simply amazing. i saw the finale five minutes ago and my heart is still pounding. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. I understand how people are getting upset because there have been shootings in real life but the fact that its realistic makes the episode scarier and adds more suspense making the finale even more awesome. Im just really impressed with the entire show. I thought the episode with the bomb in the hospital was gonna be the the best Grey's got but this final just blew me away.
It was terrifying when mark and lexie opened the elevator to find alex, shot and bleeding on the elevator floor... and it was heartbreaking when alex started asking for izzie. best grey's yet! i can't wait for the seventh season!
I did enjoy these episodes enjoyable, but suspended realities of real life whilst watching it.
Der wasn't shot in the heart from what I saw. I'd rather have seen kepner shot than Der.
I thought Der saying to Mer that he didn't want her to be alone if something happened to him was bound to lead to something bad. It was bound to work out that yet again Mer would eventually realise that she wanted what Der wanted, children. She's the only one who could do that for him.
So I hope there's some fun in seeing that storyline through. I can just see Der going hyper protective of his wife. There's an 'old wives tale' in the UK, that says moving house often produces a new baby! So here's hoping
@ Liana C
Unrealistic or not, it was heartbreaking. Sometimes you need to look past the things that are unrealistic and just enjoy the excitement. Who cares if she's in too much pain? Maybe she was in a LOT of pain... But the fact that her HUSBAND, the LOVE of her life was about to die - that brings more pain then anyone could ever believe. She wouldn't have noticed that pain. Trust me, loosing a loved one is the most painful thing in the world, no pain could beat that pain.
As for Derek almost dying. They HAVE to have some drama... They couldn't kill off Patrick Dempsey, he's too sexy. And yes. he could have survived. There is a CHANCE - it just so happens that Derek won that chance. Stop being skeptical about the reality of the show. Ignore the parts that couldn't possibly be true, because if we were going to give a list, the WHOLE show is pretty much fake. But it's an amazing show nonetheless.
This was by far the most thrilling finale for me. It goes in my top 3 finales EV
What about Jackson!?! He held it together and he ultimately saved Derek. Give that man some credit. He's a new fave of mine!
I loved most of the episode, except for two parts which were categorically unrealistic. The first is when Derek was shot. He was shot in the heart folks, so how the heck did he survive? "Near the aorta"??? Baloney. That bullet would have shredded part of his heart and he would have died right away. Totally unbelievable.
The next unrealistic part was when Meredith miscarried. Having had 4 miscarriages myself, I know absolutely without a doubt that she could not stand there and continue working as she did, she'd be in too much pain. And the fact that no one even chose to look after her when all was done, and that she sprightly walked away from the operating room made it all ridiculous. They had me up till that point, then it was ludicrous.
It was an amazing episode! I cried and was in shock throughout most of it. Awesome! And to the people complaining about the violence, think for a moment... How many people shootings have there been in the last three years? Not just in the U.S but world wide that have garnered international media attention? I can think of two school shootings in Germany and another two in the U.S... then there are also the public stabbing in China. Yet you really think something along the lines of these episodes couldn't happen? Remeber season two when Burke got shot. Yeah, totally happens. Not to be mean but deal with it. Horrible things happen everyday so of course TV will co-relate to it occasionally. If you want sunshine and rainbows go watch the childrens networks.
Yay for Shonda and the writers for putting together something that I can believe would happen. SWAT going in without swarming the building is VERY accurate coming from a police kid. I loved everything about the episodes, even if it di
this was the BEST EPISODE EVER! it had me screaming crying..ahhhh the best best best..i love greys anatomy
Grey's Anatomy has done it again. I was on the verge of falling off my couch there was so much suspense! Although this season hasn't been Grey's highpoint, it ended with a bang. I can't remember the last time the drama on this show was this intense! Personally, I won't miss Reed that much, she seemed obnoxiously snotty and the show had enough of those people. Although I think her death was completely cheated out of, it's what got me wired throughout the entire show. Charles, however, I will miss a lot, he may have been self-centered, but he brought some comic relief to the show. Bailey, I could've sworn was going to die when she was pulled from beneath the bed, luckily she didn't and lied saying she was a nurse. Dr. Bailey has always been one of the greatest actresses on the show, these episodes really showed that. All in all, the finale rocked my socks.
This episode was amazing, PERIOD. I think its silly people are giving out about the violence, this is a show that deals with violence every week. Although we dont usually see that much violence ( or any really) we always see the consequences and how it is dealt with. The violence in this episode showed us how people deal with violence and how they cope in these hostile situations. The violence was not the focus of this at all, (my boyfriend loves anything violent and he thought this was ridiculous, not a grey's fan :O Hes crazy.) it was all about the characters dealing with shocking affairs. I was BLOWN AWAY by this episode, Well done Shonda, and to all those fantastic actors/actress's. (Mr clark was amazing, his portrayl of a grieving husband both shocked and moved me.)
John, I am so glad you're saying this. I totally agree! That's exactly what I've been trying to voice in another forum, but people don't get me. I mean, the episode was brilliant in that the actors were great and it evoked all these feelings in that special manner that only Grey's Anatomy can. But the display of violence was a nightmare and this is nothing I want to see for entertainment. This is serious stuff, shootings can happen anytime anywhere, and I don't know why they had to break it down like this. Yes, Seattle Grace is a hospital, and yes they have to deal with violence. But what we usually get to see is the consequences of violence, not the violence itself. And certainly not violence and fear and terror spread over two hours. So, I'm sorry, I love Grey's, but I refuse to praise an episode where a crazy guy tells us how you can get ammunition on sale. I don't live in the US, but if I would, that would totally creep me out and I'd probably be afraid to leave the house for a whi
ok......I guess my comment was a hit and miss:) Maybe I just wasn't in the mood when I made a bad review of the finale:)
I'll try again:)
This episode was absolutely incredible and probably the BEST episode I have ever seen on television. I cried throughout the entire episode and my body froze, I couldn't believe what was happening..
BRAVO! fantastic episode, fantastic show. :))
I think a moment in the finale that deserved a big hand was when Bailey and Mandy Moore's character had to sit with Charles in the hallway while he died. I think that being a doctor, Miranda's toughest struggle had to be watching someone die without being able to do anything, not admitting she was a nurse. Watching her as she started hyperventilating near the elevators and then calming herself down because she knew he was going to die and she had to be able to help him through it... WOW! That was the hardest thing I've seen Bailey's character have to go through besides watching her son almost die. I know that there were SO many scenes to applaud by the end of the show, but I really thought this scene was definitely in the top 5, maybe 3 scenes that were most memorable.
And John, I understand what you mean about people not understanding inappropriate violence anymore, but this was not the case here. I don't think losing one viewer will be a big loss to the show, so stop watching if i
@John, no offence, but the violence (some of it) was completely necessary, in order to understand what Mr.Clark was feeling - Hate and hurt. Don't have digs at Shonda for the violence, it's not as if it's a random slasher movie, these things happen in real life. There could be a shooter anywhere resulting in someone dying.
i was in pure SHOCK for 2 hours--this was so INTENSE. i cried, i screamed, i barely BREATHED. this was so good!
the acting! the story!
cristina rocked. she's the best. and the chief. and bailey. oh my god. i could FEEL all of their emotions.
and alex. poor alex! when he nearly cried out for izzie and thought she had come back to him..god, i just cried. i know its stupid, but ih hope she comes back. shonda said it, the only one he loves is izzie. they belong together. there has to be some kind of solution!!!! *beg*
and the miscarriage...omg...poor mer. how will she handle this...
I think it was a very memorable episode. The whole time my heart was pumping rapidly and I felt sick to my stomach from the intensity. One very memorable moment that stood out for me was when Christina was in the elavator, unaware of the shooter standing next to her. The whole time I was whispering "don't shoot, don't shoot" as my fingers were crossed next to me. I thought that they did a pretty good job of pulling off the story line of this last episode, and I can't wait until this coming fall for more.
i think that this was the absolute most memorable season finale in all of tv history! from meredith getting pregnant and then losing the baby, to derek getting shot and christina operating on him and meredith freaking out when she thought he was dead or when meredith tried to get mr.clark to shoot her instead until christina said meredith was pregnant and then moments later wasnt. this will make a very interesting season 7 i hope that meredith gets pregnant because both derek and meredith really want a baby i think. they really need to have a child because they need to continue to move forward in their relationship since aparently every one else is (callie and arizona/ owen and christina)
i think that the next season will be about derek recovering from his surgery and meredith and him trying to figure out how to move forward. and callie and arizona trying to get pregnant. i just hope that before the whole show is over meredith and derek have a least 1 child. every other site i loook a
John - this episode was not ABOUT violence. It was about a myriad of reactions/emotions/personalities instigated by the shooting. People who truly enjoy violent shows would probably not enjoy this episode as the focus is not violence - the focus is people, personalities and characters.
Well, I'm usually not visiting any websites to comment on Grey's Anatomy stuff, but these last two episode were so amazing, that I just have to comment on them! I think, they were the best Grey's episodes ever (and I guess I've seen almost all of them). Really, really amazing!
