Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Review: The Best Episode Yet? > Comments Page 8
That was one of the most gripping and brilliantly handled two hours of TV that I have ever watched - let alone best ever Grey's ep. Amazing. The writing, the directing, the acting...oh my word the acting! It was just perfection in my opinion. I was on the edge of my seat, urging everyone to run, yearning for Clark not to shoot. Then there were tears. So many tears.
I was thinking about Mer miscarrying due to stress throughout the entire episode, but when it finally happened it was still so shocking and sad. I know some have been angry at Shonda for killing the baby, but I think that's harsh. She has given us happy MerDer for ages now, she has promised not to split them up (which is a HUGE thing for writers to do) and funnily enough, the shooting made them as strong as they could ever be. Mer ran through Christina for him, she begged Derek not to leave her, she offered to die in his place. She was a hero for her man and they will get through what's happened with that amount of stren
@ Grey 4 Ever, I completely agree; the OR scene was OFF THE CHART! I didn't expect the gun man in there either. I figured Derek was dying by the look on Owen's face. Sandra Oh should DEFINITELY get that Emmy this year! I loved when Meredith came in and was willing to sacrifice her life to save Derek's....we have totally seen growth in this character. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and I love how Cristina wasn't willing to sacrifice anyone - not Derek, not Meredith, not her unborn godchild and not her guy. JUST AWESOME! So sad to see her lose the baby but I hope that brings her and Owen closer as Cristina patches things up with him. Right now Meredith doesn't like him very much (and rightfully so) but hopefully suffering the loss in front of him and him knowing (and seeing) what Derek means to her will help them find a way around their differences. Can't wait until September!
Great episode! And how amazing was Richard! Cristina and Bailey rocked! Mer, Avery and Hunt were awesome. I have to admit I even liked April this episode.
However, I didn't like what happened with Alex, Lexie & Mark. I really thought that Alex & Lexie were falling in love, it broke my heart when he thought she was Izzie and said what he said. I just don't see how they can get past this and according to the writer's blog they won't. I know KH is gone and Izzie will not be back, it is just so sad. Why couldn't they of just let A/I be over with, I am so tired of this, they have been doing this for six seasons. IMO, Izzie never truly loved Alex, there will be no happy ending for them, end of story!
Oh, my God. OMG, did you see Meredith? 'If you die, I die.' That was the sweetest thing ever. And, I have to say this, I loved Owen. (Usually I don't). Plus.. Alex and Lexie. God, that was intense and.. horrible at the same time. Lexie was there, saying I love you and stuff, and he thought she was Izzie. I cried like a baby when she said : I'll never leave you. *-* She's been great. Almost as great as Meredith in the o.r. Have you seen her? She's not dark and twisty anymore. She's been great, even if I hope that her choice to hide her pregnancy and her miscarriage (The miscarriage scene was the most heartbreaking :C) won't lead her to be all dark and twisty again. I also really liked Bailey. I held my breath when I saw her with that damn killer, and I cried when she was crying. Oh, and I loved Mandy Moore. She was great, maybe the best patient Bailey's ever had :D I also really loved Jackson Avery. He's great, and his idea saved Derek's life, even if Meredith crying on the floor was he
Omg. I almost cried last night. Grey prego? i flipped, i was happy for her. I looked at the suspicious character Gary Clark as if i had seen him before, and when he mentioned his wife, i flash backed, i have seeen him before. I started flipping, biting my nails as i see Reed shot in the brains, almost fell off my bed. Then Karev walking in, holy cheese, that scared me getting shot in the side, so much blood, April. "I heard that if you tell the shooter a whole bunch of stuff about your life they may not kill you, or you have a higher chance of staying alive." This part was hilarious, i couldnt believe her eratic self got out of getting killed. So much blood, so much intensity, including Webber almost drinking again, but actually stopping some one else, so mmuch courage for an ex-chief at Mercy West - Seattle grace hospital
I meant episodes, not show in my prev. post... and another "funny" thing was when Callie said "Tottally hating your gutts" cuz I just Loved the look onc AZ face:)
There was only one hilarious thing in this show and it was when Baylie said "Where does that water come from?" andthe paitent sadi "doctor Baylie, you're crying!" hahaha
i don't know what to say exept WOW. it was so intence! i really loved al the beautiful speaches. Loved richards speach. Loved derek's speach. And I really loved Mer's speach!
Really... it's defenitly an award winning episode! I still am shocked. The actor work... wow. Sandra Oh, you really rocked the show! End Ellen did really well!
At the end, when she put the pregnancy test in the trash can... my heart broke for the fourth time or so... I don't know what will happen next season... but for now, I don't care! Loved the episodes!
It was a great season finale! I just LOVED it! But most of all, Calzona is Calzona again!! I think i'll smie the whole summer cuz of that, cuz I'm super happy that there was one really really good thing about this finale, and just not sad things! Can't wait til september! And I wish they could have this competiotions that shows have every now and then that fans can compete and they get to see the set, and not just the originally one that just american or canadian fans can patricipate in, cuz that's just not fare for the rest of the fans!! btw, I just Loved Cnandra and Chyler in these episode, they we're just amazing, well, so was Ellen, Sandra, Sara and Jessica too!!
I have only one regret fot this episode it is that Mer did a misscarige. We spoke a lot about this pregnancy and finally the baby die... so it's not verry nice
Something I found interesting- in the past, the writers and Shonda have both said that when they sit down at the writers table, Shonda always has in mind what she wants the season finale to look like/be. In season 4 she new that it would end with Mer in the field with the candles, and it was their job to figure out how she got there. Because the Mer at the end of season 3 wasn't whole, she was dark and twisty. They had to figure out how to get her undark,untwisty. SO I can imagine her coming in at the beginning of season 6 and saying, "There is going to be a shooter loose in the hospital, and want the viewers to be attached to some of the doctors who die." So how would they do that with out losing the core characters? A merger. Bring in doctors from another hospital early in the year, and let us grow to know who they are. Awesome stuff Shonda!!!! I look forward to next season.
Dollyllama, you were too kind. This was the most unrealistic, over the top, insipid episode to date. From Bailey acting like a crying little baby to simply sitting on the floor like a helpless child while Percy dies, to Meredith operating while she is having a miscarriage, to personal, emotional relationship discussions in the middle of opersating room crises, to the most inept and clueless SWAT team in the entire world,I couldn't control my laughter through the last half of the show. Unbelievable!
Oh, and too right about Michael O'Neill. He was simply awesome throughout.
"Into You... Like a Train" used to be my favourite episode(s), but not any more. That was simply one of the best episodes of anything I have ever seen. I expected Reed and Percy (and April) to die, but to dispatch with Reed so quickly, before her name had ever come up in the credits, was shocking! And then I was worried for Alex, because even though there wasn't anything to say that Justin Chambers was leaving, I figured that it could be one of those things that they keep quiet right up until the last minute. I am very glad he's OK though!
I am confident that Mark and Lexie will be together, because, as Shonda said in her blog, Lexie will feel guilty that Alex got shot, she'll think that it's her fault, and that, I believe it what will have led her to tell him she loved him. I don't think she does love him. But I am looking forward to how it all unravels next season.
The miscarriage moment was tragic, poor Mer. But, again, as Shonda says, she had to lose it to know how much she
I think seeing the first 8 minutes totally desensitized me to the shooting and I wasn't as shocked. My bad for trolling for spoilers!
My favourite moment - and that should finally give Sandra Oh her Emmy, is the scene where Owen walks into the OR and its revealed Christina has a gun to her head. And Meredith is oblivious in the scrub room. Hello? Shonda, writers, hands down the best scene of the night. Brilliance. Never saw that coming AT ALL, it was like a scary movie scene!
I was also heartbroken that Mer lost the baby as she tried to help Owen. And Bailey Percy and Mary (Mandy Moore's character), that was powerful stuff too. I don't know any other guest character that could have played so likeable and not wallflowered amongst all the drama around her. But you guys are right, Gary Clark was haunting. I'm not gonna sleep well tonight!
OMG. This has to be the best double episode ever. I am still realling from all the drama. I cried with Bailey, I cried for Derek and Meredith and Derek still has no idea Meredith was pregnant let alone miscarry. I have new found respect for April, and glad she isn't the fatal attraction doe eyed intern lusting after Derek.
2 thumbs-up for Richard Webber 6 months sober and he didn't take a drink of vodka when Gary Clark offered it, instead he poured it out. If I was in the room with him I would have given Chief Webber a big hug and a pat on the back.
Sad to see Dr Reed Adamson and Dr Charles Percy die. I am glad Alex will be a survivor, same goes for Derek and Owen.
Well it's been hinted that Derek is building the McHouse on his property out in the woods, season 7 hopefully will see Meredith and Derek move out there and now that Meredith is ready to be a mom, I hope Shonda Rhimes puts all us fans out of our miseries and give us a real McWedding to go with a McBaby, oh maybe a
Lexie needs to be with Mark, the fact that Alex thought she was Izzie clearly shows that he is still in love with Izzie. He does not love Lexie but Mark does...she is going to let the man who loves her get away for someone who does not. Her heart clearly lives in her vagina. Everyone knows that when Alex is in his I'm hurt but I'm not accepting the reality moments, he uses sex as a way to escape the reality of the situation. If Lexie's heart was not in her vagina she would see that Alex does not love her!
I'm so sad, along with other MD fans who really wanted Mcbaby! :(
But, in season 7 Meredith and Derek will have a baby right? The right way... NO "omg, this miscarrige caused Mer to never be able to get pregnant again.. ?" BS... Okay?
Merder fans did not get wedding. And now, no baby!!! SO PLEASE GIVE US MCBABY in s7!!!!!
Was it suspenseful? Yes...very. Was it any way realistic...No, not at all. Apparently Seattle Grace Hospital does not have phones, cameras, or more than one security guard...and the swat team there doesn't immediately find the floor the shooter is on and block it off so he can't roam freely...and shoot only to wound when a man has already shot several people killing at least 4. Give me a break...let's not even mention that the swat team can't find the shooter, but an off duty Richard finds him in no time flat...
LJ thanks - the declaration came right after Clark had tried to kill her .And then she came in riddled with guilt and blaming herself.According to Shonda in the blog
I think her realization that Gary Clark is the shooter has her feeling guilty, like Alex getting shot might be her fault. I think up until tonight she’s been walking like a duck. After all, Mer did tell her that her heart lives in her vagina. And her relationship with Alex is all about sex. I think she loves Mark Sloan but I think this Gary Clark thing has confused her. So there is hope. For Lexie and Mark, there is hope. It just may take a while.
Humbugged - just added one. Sorry! There was a lot going on last night, you have to admit ...
LJ - no mention of Lexie at all ???
