Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Review: The Best Episode Yet? > Comments Page 6
I could rave on about all the different stories and their outcome, but by far the best finale of any program this season. Acting was great, a lot of sad parts and I am still exausted from the supense. GOOD JOB!
It was AMAZING! I also feel like Lexie said I love you because she feels guilty about him getting shot. I don't doubt she has feelings for him, but she said it right after she ran into Mr. Clark. I just hope Mark and Lexie get back together Haha
The season finale was amazing! All the women were so powerful and strong people during the whole thing.
It was a good show, but c'mon Shonda - any hospital has hundreds and hundreds of telephone lines (rooms, lobbies, nurses stations) that have to work no matter what - because it's a hospital! Very frustrating that Miranda struggled in vain to save a live when all she had to do was find a phone and let people know where and what is going on - Sheesh! And how did the shooter get past Meredith and into the OR where Christina was doing her best to save Derek? Are they telling us that there's so many entry ways into a OR as to be considered a high traffic area? I also agree about the Swat one-shot-then out scene. Shonda asked us to suspend a huge anount of reality.
My god this finale I was in shock the whole time. This made up for the ENTIRE season man I just wow.
I kind of knew Gary Clark was the shooter (it came from a mile away) the actor did a fantastic job portraying him
Mer/Der- I used to not care about Mer/Der in the early seasons with the back and forth relationship and the obstacles going in I wasn't even a big fan of Meredith but now I can't believe how far they have come from angst to post it wedding to a pregnancy which I KNEW was gonna end in a miscarriage :'( Hopefully there will be a McBaby in the future and in S7 premiere Mer will tell Derek about the miscarriage and get throught this.I also was shocked with the eye for an eye scene
Mark/Lexie/Alex- My god when Alex was shot my heart sank (I love Alex so much) It took a lot of courage for Mark to operate on Alex and see Lexie stand by him so kudos Mark.
When Alex was calling for Izzie OMG I felt good and a bit hurt @ the same time I know he was delirious but this show
Ahhh almost forgot about Calzona and Mark&Lexie&Alex
I'm so ecstatic that Calzona finally sort out their problems and are back together! I knew it :)!
I love Mark and Lexie! But if Lexie leaves Alex, i would feel so sad for Alex. Especially after what happened in the shooting, Lexie took care of him and said she loved him..
I totally agree!! The season finale was the best i so far!! I can't wait for next season to start!! So much for Ben possiblity getting killed off the show - He was nowhere to be found!! As for the couples that be:
I'm glad that Callie and Arizona were able to work thru all of the baby and trust issues. These two are soulmates to the hilt!!
I glad that Owen finally came to his senses to realize that Christina is the love of his life!! But something tells that hot looking doctor from Mercy West who assisted her with Derek's surgery might have a thing for her.
As for the whole Alex and Lexie professing their undying love for one another - Sorry folks!! But it was nothing more than a case of guilt tripping and near death experience that brought that on. Although I do believe that the pair may love each others, but as friends - nothing more!! Mark and Lexie will be reunited again and this time it will be for keeps!!
Mark - Do see how he went straight for Lexie when the
Best GA season finale, but not the best in TV history. This is probably cause I got my hopes too high up... I'm a bit disappointed though. But I did love the eps.
I was heartbroken when Mer had a miscarriage. I so wanted Derek and her to have a McBaby. That would be a really cute sweet family. But like what Shonda said in the writers' blog, she wanted to make Mer want a baby MORE than ever. So for that to happen, there must be a miscarriage.
Michael (O'Neill), Ellen, Chandra and Sandra gave a brilliant, fantastic performance. Their acting and crying was so realistic and superb. I love them and their characters, except for Mr. Clark or course. I pity his character.
I was disappointed that Teddy made the choice for Owen to choose Cristina. Are the writers trying to make her seem more like-able to the audience? Hmmm... But I'm glad Owen took the bullet for Cristina (and indirectly, everyone else in the OR) and was okay in the end. Loved his "this is the woman i love" line. Also l
Last night's episode was the BEST I'VE EVER WATCHED ON GREY'S OR ANYWHERE ELSE....I was captured from the very first second and it never stopped. I usually go back and forth about liking this show but last night more then made up for it. It had every feeling imagineable in it and kept me at the edge of my seat (literally) even during the commericals I couldn't move. I'm still going over all of it my head today. They all deserve an emmy for such an outstanding job. Even though I knew about some of it early it was still such a surprising empisode. All the charchters really did their best acting last night and will be remembered for a long time. I'm thinking things will be different next season, a little sadder and not as at home there like they are now. Some will have a bad/sad reaction to it.
Last evening's 2 hour finale showed more great acting and basically a great story line....but didn't anyone catch the fact that once the Swat guy shot the 'shooter' (over Lexi's shoulder) he didn't either finish the shooter off or at least arrest him. I know it would have cut short all of the other killings, etc., but really now would a Swat guy only shoot once and not check out his target?????????????????????????
Yeah, there were some credibility gaps in how events unfolded, but not enough of them to take me off the roller-coaster.
One of the things that struck me most forcefully about this episode, though - and which is what I used to LOVE about Grey's writing when it began - is how life's Big Moments are so often sandwiched between the trivial and mundane.
Percy's reply to Bailey's assertion that, yes, she had liked him: "No, you didn't." Looks straight at her, and there is the sudden knowing in his eyes that, whether someone likes you or not matters so little in the big picture of your life.
Then he says, "It's ok. You should know you were always my favorite docto..." and dies right in the middle of a Not Grand and Romantic sentence.
Subtle. Profound. Incredibly Powerful.
Or Kerev: "If I knew, I would have eaten more bacon."
Or April: "I heard on Oprah..."
This is how stuff like this happens... People teeter between the lucid and the c
Wonderful episode. I watch this with my wife, who is hooked. A lot of very good storytelling in this 2 hour format. Not the best episode(s) I have seen, but in the top 3 for sure.
And, not to burst any bubbles, but I would not have minded AT ALL if Cristina Yang took a bullet last night. It was a strong episode for her, and Sandra Oh is brilliant, but the character, to me, has always seemed to be one of the most cynical, bitter, ugly (personality, not appearance) characters I have ever seen. She kind of makes me crazy. How Owen could actually WANT to be with her is a mystery. I see her, and the first word that comes to mind is "troll." Alex fits that category, too. Pompous A_ _. Bullet should have been a little closer to his microscopic brain.
Just my opinion, flamers! I still think this is excellent acting and writing for a night time soap. ;)
Wow, simply amazing episode! I really didn't think so many people were going to get shot/die, but it was all really well done. When mer offered up her life to mr. clark .. i lost it! completely heart wrenching. I hope Lexie only told alex she loved him because of the moment, i like her and mark so much better. I've never liked percy, i was even hoping he would get shot, but his death was just so sad, i actually wanted him to live at the time. Now i don't really care lol. For everyone who says the SWAT part was unrealistic and dumb, yes it was unrealistic but it makes sense because this is a show based on a HOSPITAL, its not a SWAT show. Take 24 for instance, in that show CTU and Jack is the only thing that can get shit done, the police unrealistically suck, the secret service is shit, and the FBI is crap too. You have to look at the focus of the show, which is the medical stuff.
I really wanted McBaby! :( That was really sad! They really need to have a baby next season! :)
I think April is ok. She can stay as far as I am concerned!
The whole Percy asked Dr. Bailey to tell Reed he loved her...! *sniff* SAD!
This episode was very suspenseful! I thought the whole man with a gun must have been a kind of flashback for Derek to when his dad died! So sad! I hope HE doesn't get PTSD next season!
Overall, I liked it. Glad that calzona are back and going to have babies! Callie has wanted that for a long time! I wish mark and lexie would get back together! Alex still loves Izzie! (the whole Sloan and Lexie saving Alex was good too!)
5 Star Episode
Not only was this the best Grey's Anatomy episode in all the years I've been watching Grey's, this was the best episode of any television show I've ever watched. All the elements were there: suspense, drama, intrigue, mystery, romance, conflict, crisis, resolution, redemption, revenge, sacrifice, death.....
There were so intertwined, so perfectly woven together in a story that had near perfect pace that from the opening scene until the closing monologue I was completely captured. The performances were perfection not just the major players but from the minor ones as well:
It should not have come as to anyone that Mr. Clark was the shooter from the other episodes where his pain and anger seemed to escalate to pure rage and hatred. But he was not an unsympathetic psychopath that you couldn’t wait for the SWAT team to put a bullet through his head. You completely felt his internal conflict and experienced the ebb and flow of his emotional state. His politeness, h
This was just too much. Too many deaths, too many scenes calculated to shock, too much drama. Sure it was intense, sure it was entertaining. Seriously, what could make you feel better on your couches than watching the shooting and dying of innocent people, very graphically, while emotional songs are playing to emphasise the mood..!? Disturbing, it is, this entertaining violece. Besides, I think it was pretty unfair to kill both Reed and Percy. They weren't much seen, they hardly had any lines, nobody cares whether they were on the show or not - hey, they were PERFECT targets for a lunatic shooter! Lots of emotions and tears for the viewers but no need to sacrifice any real characters. Nice, Rhimes!
Wasn't it quite contrived that it took such a damn long time for the SWAT to enter the hospital?? And that the SWAT guy didn't shoot Mr. Clark at once, straight in the head??
Is it just me that actually starting to liking April? She is annoing, but after the season finale and after everyrhing they went true I actually think they will get closer to each other, and mayby not BFF but at least be a little more friends then before! I wonder if there will be a jump ahead in time? when the new season starts? I know that J.caps pregnancy would be written in, but if there would be a time jump there actually would be possible that AZ could be pregnant, and they actuallt could show whole her in the picture and not from her chest and up. No that we have been spaculation on the finale, I have a felling we'll to the same with the season premier instead, haha:) I hope we'll get a few spoiler during the summer!
Don't shoot me for saying so but this finale was mediocre at best. I was certain that Shonda would use Mr. Clark as a red herring while April would turn out as the crazed shooter. Imagine having a female psycho running amok on TV? THAT would've been shocking. Mr. Clark was too predictable. IMO the entire finale didn't really feel right. Things were written half-heartedly, somewhat gimmicky, e.g. Callizona getting back together within seconds? Why? Richard and Mr. Clark talking it all over? Why? The entire sequence during Derek's surgery? Mer stepping in, losing the child? Owen taking the bullet ... that was taking the concept of willing suspension of disbelief too far. I didn't buy it at all. The only thing that overwhelmed me was Sarah's acting throughout. Terrific.
BEST FINALLE EVER!!!
bailey's crying when the elevator is shut down...And Chistina's is owen dead keeps me crying.....
I am glad that alex is fine,but lexi shouldn't have said i love you! she clearly loved mark and mark loves her!!!
The episodes are haunting me! THE april bitch has to go!!!
is it even remotely possible they have izzie back?
Come on KH,if you've seen this episode....
IF KH IS IN THE FINNALE SHE CAN GET SHOT AND PRODUCE A 'SAVE ME OR SAVE ALEX'situation, that will be even more amazing!
But last night's episode is definitely best GA EVER!!
I wanted them back together as well...even though I felt all along that she was going to choose Alex simply because there was more story to be told that way. Even if it was the season finale...there is a brand new season up ahead and there needs to be some stories left to be told.
If SR is telling the truth in her blog about their being hope for Lexie and Mark still, then I hope that they take their time putting them back together and don't just do it overnight because they have a lot of issues that need to be addressed first before getting back together and I kind of felt the last two episodes were rushed with Mark going from seeing Teddy/sleeping with Reed to telling Lexie he was in love with her with no sort of real lead up to it the weeks prior.
But overall, I thought the finale was well done. One of the best I've seen in a long time. And because it is always worth repeating...Cristina Yang is awesome!
OMG! What an amazing episode, I absolutely loved it! Luckily, I DVR'd it so I'll watch it over and over again.
April is seriously pissing me off. Derek got shot because of her. She came running out, calling him Dr. Shepherd and the Mr. Clark shoots Derek even though McDreamy almost calmed the guy down enough that the guy won't shoot him.
Poor Mer, losing the baby. It looks like healthy, happy Meredith is gone again. One of the most touching scenes was when the shooter was threatening to shoot Christina for saving Derek. Owen came back for her and he chose her. Mer's right, she's the "eye for an eye"...Derek's wife, Lexie's sister and Webber's almost daughter. Wow! It's sad she lost the baby, she didn't even know if she wanted one when it was brought up in the previous episodes but now she wants it and it was really heartbreaking how she just said she's having a miscarriage while she and April were working on Owen.
Owen definitely stepped up last night and it's real
A fabulous ending!! I was on the edge on my seat the whole time...texting my sister "I can hardly catch my breath!" As she texted me back "I'm gasping for air!" Compelling drama. I do agree with some of the others...the annoying April has to go!
I loved the episode last night.......i was on the edge of my seat the whole 2 hrs. i do have to say that i thought it was really sad when percy was asking bailey to tell reed how he felt, not knowing she had already perished. That made me cry even harder. Stellar acting from everyone. I am totally sad about mcbaby though, and wonder how thats going to play out next season.
I know I'm in the minority here but they missed the boat when they didn't put Lexie with Mark by the end.
