Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Review: The Best Episode Yet? > Comments Page 7
Was this a solid episode? Absolutely. But it was also entirely contrived. It's not difficult to manipulate viewer emotion by just letting a gunman loose in a hospital and suddenly making Meredith pregnant.
Compare it to my favorite, heart-wrenching season finale: when Denny died. That focused on true character development, had been building for months and culminated in a study of these interns we had gotten to know and love so much. It earned its emotion.
But this? It just came out of nowhere, and relied on a suspension of disbelief that the SWAT team would somehow not come in until Shonda had squeezed every ounce of emotion she could from the two hours. That's manipulative, lazy writing.
Yeah, you schould really WATCH the episode, like really watch it before you say something. Like for instence, Baylie did call. We didn't see her do it but if you listen in the scene with Webber an the policemen you can hear all the doctors calls. And sure the SWAT could have done a better work, but they maybe didn't want to shoot lexie when she was i the hall and waited, and then they waited too long, and sure they could've followed him, but then there wouldn't have been the OR-scene, and maybe they did folloow him and he got away? And I disagree with you, Greys has always been awsome! And sure it may have been a little weird when Izzie operated on a dee, but I liked it, the craziness! And if you are a true fan, you lovethe show always, even if the story is a little weird sometimes, and I don't think it has. And this season has been the best one since season 1. And it might have to do with all the new faces, and that my fav. character is Callie, and that she finally found som
An excellent episode. Definately #2. Nothing will ever beat Code Black, but this was as close as it gets. I have to admit I was annoyed that SWAT got a shot and then Clark got away. That really wasn't passable in my book, but the scenes following that were very good. The episode was decently written, superbly acted, and finished with some redemption.
BEST FINALE EVER. Exept the miscarriage:( My heart broke:'( They tricked us again!
Except for that. MerDer LOVE is Epic best friendship ever!
Ellen, Sandra, Patrick and Chandra rocked!
By far, one of the best and most riveting season finale's seen. Superb acting!!!
Seriously. I could not sleep last night. I could not fall asleep until 3am and I was back up at 6am. GA is back. I have been watching since the first episode and that was the BEST EPISODE EVER! I screamed, cried, and screamed some more. My husband even cried and he never cries. My nerves are very bad now. I need the summer to calm them down.
it was amazing they kept you guessing until the end. 3 major characters got shot that was unbelievable!!!! I knew they would live but still........ Christina perfomrance was amazing! She blew me away will the terror you could see when clark had a gun to her head! and Owen taking a bullet for mer that was the perfect way for him to tell christina that he lover her. and mer telling clark to shot her and let them save derek that was so heartbreaking!!!! i loved bailey. You could see pure terror in her eyes when clark was standing over her!!!! great performances across the board derek to attempting to talk down clark and then that idiot april running in and getting him shot i do not like her and hope she does not come back. i am not sad to see the mercy westers go they annoy me and take away for the grey's angle.
great episode and the best of grey's so far!!!!!
i am excited to see what they have in store for the doctors of seattle grace in september!!!!!!
I love the finale, it's the best Grey's episode ever!!!! When Owen showed up in the OR being very calm and I knew something was happening, and then the shooter showed up in the OR pointing the gun at Cristina's head. I was like "WTF???" That's the most shocking scene in the whole episode!
And I never liked Percy, but he's made me cry a lot in this episode, esp when he knew he was dying and asked bailey to tell Reed that he loved her.
Thank god Owen chose Cristina, not Teddy. Hope they will move in together at the beginning of next season!
The only thing that disappoints me is that the writers didnt make Owen to get some action! He was shot immediately when he tried to tackle the guy...
Right up there with the best!!
But i have to say...did anyone else wish that that April would be a gonner too?
She was so annoying..i hope she isn't back next season.
Also, I reckon after this Derek will admit that chief isnt for him and richard will be back as chief.
WOW! September couldn't come soon enough!!
A lot of people are complaining about realism. IT'S A TV SHOW. It's not a documentary...the point is to make it entertaining to watch!
The SWAT-teams are always STUPID on tv (except for the movie SWAT). ALWAYS!! SO don't bitch about it. This finale was so much more about the characters and their handling of the situation than on the handling the SWAT had.
Sure the SWAT team could have killed Mr Clark after 30 minutes, but that wouldn't be fun right?
Ok, I have seriously fallen in love with avery. he is an absalute genuis!! he is like a super god, with his good looks, amazing surgical skills, and he is so super smart to trick mr clark that der was dead. it was so great!
it scared the crap out of me when owen walked in and BOOM mr clark was there holding the gun to christina, and she was freaking out. and that girl april....i might not hate her, but shes kind of an idiot. how could you NOT see derek getting a gun pointed at him? i mean seriously!? broke my heart when mer lost the baby. i really wanted a mcbaby. soooo bad.
so, if ben was not in the episode last night, what's gonna happen to him? is he gonna just leave seattle really quick in season 7? poor bailey, i dont think she can take much more of all this heartbreaking stuff. I'm glad owen chose christina, and lexie chose alex. now teddy and mark will get together, and they are good together. i do like them together. theyre so cute!!
now im sad that theres gonna be no mor
Seriously? You need to get over yourself, go back and watch the entire finale from beginning to end. Because if you did, you would know that Bailey did call 911 for help and she specifically mentioned that Dr. Percy had been shot and was dying. The police officers outside the hospital got that call, as well as the others from Mark Sloane, Callie and Yang about their injured. Don't slam the show without all the facts. This particular gripe of yours is totally uncalled for.
Avery was brilliant, if it wasn't for him Derek, Cristina, Owen and Meredith would have died. Best episode ever. I felt like my blood pressure was going up the whole time, I was screaming and yelling and crying. Bravo Grey's Anatomy.
I think she'll tell Derek. She's gonna have to tell the doctor about it if she ever get pregnant again, so my guess she'll tell him before that.
Why was Baileys boyfriend not on the finale?????
Ok, did no one see how in love Jackson clearly is with Yang!?
Also, dont think I have ever cried this much at televison. Ok so not entirely realistic, but its no about realism, its about entertainment and drama, its fiction!
Ah I was on team Owen and Christina, but I just don't know. Alex dragging himself to the elevator, amazing. Percy, never liked him, but wow! When bailys feet got dragged!! I wish Ben had been in this episode though with her, that would have been interesting, I kept wondering about him. Merder, I wish we had seen her go to his room and Yang is still and forver will be my fav character!!
That episode was absolutely gripping. Best quote of the night?
Meredith: You want your eye for an eye? Kill me.
I was probably most impressed with Cristina last night, who managed to be selfless and the world's best friend while still maintaining her trademark composure and sarcasm.
I'm just gonna have to wait for the Round Table to organize my thoughts because...wow.
Poor Mer... I had a miscarriage last year and i know how bad it feels. It would have been more unrealistic than the shooter thing if she did not miscarried. I think Ellen was great tonight... you could see all that happened on her face... the happiness, the desperation, the sadness... and her love for Derek... I loved it when she said to April 'You don't get to cry!'.
I doubt that she'll tell Derek about the mcbabby that she lost...
But i think we'll see a wedding and the entire Sheperd clan next season... September seems so far far away...
AMAZING!! Loved it. I never had a connection with Charles, but wow - I balled when he was dying. Everyones life has changed b/c of this - can't wait to see next season.
Can someone put the link to the writers blog on here?
Oh right, haha. I forgot about that:) That was fun too, to be in that situation and then start talking about bacon:) And right, when Callie and Christina is cryin the beginning is so funny too! hahaha:)
For those who are concerned if Mer will be to have kids, you can relax. Miscarriage at early stage of pregnancy (I assumed it's early because she just found out) doesn't even require D&C, uterus cleans itself, there's no adhesions that could be dangerous with the next baby. And they can start trying for another right away, I mean when they're ready :D
The season finale had a lot of gaps...Seattle SWAT was able to hit Mr. Clark just once...and only in the shoulder? Please. Why didn't Dr. Bailey call 911 for help with Percy? She was dragging his body down the hall past a nurses desk, not to mention all the cell phones available. Then Meredith operating WHILE she's having a miscarriage? Seriously.
Grey's Anatomy is a sinking ship that should have been cancelled seasons ago. It's been on a downhill slide ever since Izzy did surgery on a deer.
I was laughing at Alex's rant about bacon. That was pretty funny too. =)
The SWAT team didn't know what Clark wanted....Webber just said his wife was his patient. He knew where to find him. He knew he would go back to his wife's room.
Should the SWAT guy have shot him dead when he had the chance? Yes, of course. But then there wouldnt be the OR scene.
i agree. it was the best greys yet. finally it is back to what it was before.
i know you included the mercy westers dying but i probably would have been specific and spoken about how devastatingly sad Percy's death was. dont get me wrond, Reed's death was shocking and violent and unexpected, but i just feel that Percy's should be mentioned seperately just because of the amazing performances and the heartwrenching nature of it.
great choices though :)
