Grey's Anatomy Review: "Shiny Happy People"

at . Comments

Next week marks the season finale of our beloved Grey's Anatomy. For whatever reason this reminds us of a cheesy one liner - we hate to see you leave, but we love to watch you go!

We wouldn't go as far as saying we felt that this week's episode, "Shiny Happy People" was a filler, but it really did put the 60 minute show to good use to tie up some loose ends.

One of our favorite loose ends happened to be Miranda and Ben's blossoming relationship. When Ben interrupted Bailey and said:

Ben: Now woman, I am naked and I look good. Are you going to sit there and lecture me or are you going to let me take you into my bedroom and have my way with you. | permalink

We got to admit he had our hearts pounding!

Ben definitely is the type of man Miranda needs in her life. He is able to stand up to her and will not take any of her nonsense lying down quietly. He made it crystal clear to her and the rest of us that he is not looking to play games and is in it for the long hull. We really heart him and the beginning of what looks like the relationship we always wanted for Miranda.

A Bailey Smile

Meredith was the one person in the most difficult place last night because she finally had to admit to herself and Cristina that it just isn't the two of them anymore.

She is married to Derek and her loyalties have to lye with him. Thankfully, Meredith did get herself involved a bit when she gave Owen a piece of her mind. We were worried that Cristina wouldn't find out the truth - and we were shocked that Teddy heard the whole conversation!

What do you think Owen means when he said he isn't sure about his feelings for Teddy? We feel like something will definitely happen in the season finale that will make his choice clear on who he cares about most.

Oh Lexie! What to do! What to do! When Mark gave his speech to Lexie it only left us more confused!

We really do like Alex and Lexie together, but Mark is in LOVE with Lexie and pretty much proposed to her in a way. It definitely was no post-it, but it was something!

We wonder if Shonda purposely had Alex seem more confused this week. Why else would Alex be calling himself a duck one week, but kissing Lexie so passionately the week before?

Who do you want Lexie to end up with? Do you think Mark's feelings for Lexie are as genuine as they seem or do you think it is more about wanting what you can't have?

Alex and His New Patient

We enjoyed Demi Lovato's character and her storyline because it involved Alex asking Lexie - the computer brain - for help. It's always nice to have a case that seems unsolvable and then our beloved doctors come to save the day!

The passionate kiss that Callie and Arizona shared in the elevator only means one thing: Whatever feelings they have for each other are still burning strong!

We still don't see how they are going to overcome their problem. We feel neither one should have to budge from their ground. We can't wait to see where their story goes!

We all know what is looming next week and for some reason we still feel creepy April will be involved. It is too obvious for Shonda to have Mr. Clark be the killer. He may have the biggest reason to want to kill Derek, but seeing that Meredith is pregnant (yeah, we called it!) could throw April off the deep end...just saying!

Until the much anticipated two-hour long season finale next week we leave you with a few of our favorite Grey's Anatomy quotes after the jump!

Mark: Lex - I'm still in love with you. I tried not be, but it didn't work. And Sloane's gone, there is no baby, and I don't want to sleep around. I want another chance. I'm in love with you.
Lexie: Karev, he's...Mark, I have a boyfriend.
Mark: I know. All I'm saying is that you could have a husband. | permalink
Meredith: Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple - to be happy. Maybe it's this expectation though of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to state's of bliss, the more confused we get - to the point where we don't recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling - trying to be the happy people we wish we were. Until it eventually hits us, it's been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar. | permalink
Callie: You don't want fifty years to go by and realize that you let the love of your life get away. So go - try! | permalink
Meredith: You have to understand that it's been just you and me for a long time, now its me and Derek. And it's you and me. I told you what I said this morning because it's you and me, but I can't tell you anymore because it's me and Derek.
Cristina: Fine I get it, but I need you to understand that I need there to be a me and Owen. | permalink
Alex: It's like the computer froze! | permalink
Lexie: The point is - I need to know what we are. What this is.
Alex: We're a thing, yeah we're together. We're a thing. Whatever. | permalink
Richard: A happy patient is a healthy patient Yang. | permalink
Meredith: It's a common belief that positive thinking leads to a happier healthier life. As children we are told to smile, be cheerful, and put on a happy face. As adults we are told to look on the bright side, to make lemonade, and see glasses as half full. Sometimes reality can get in the way of our ability to act the happy part though. Youre hope can fail, boyfriends can cheat, friends can disappoint. It's in these moments, when you just want to get real, drop the act, and be your true scared unhappy self. | permalink
Owen: Lets move in together. Good, you cant answer. That's good I don't want you to, I ran it past my shrink and she thinks it's a good idea. So think about it. Me, you, our own place.
Cristina: Yes.
Owen: What! Yes?
Cristina: Yes, but I need to warn you that this is my fourth martini and my judgment is severely impaired. Also, I'm a real easy lay right now. | permalink
Meredith: At my parties we drink beer and dance on tables.
Derek: Are you insulting my party?
Meredith: It is getting kinda lame out there.
Derek: Duty calls. | permalink

What did you think of this week's episode?

I love this episode, I love that Meredith is a grow up, I hope Lexie choose Alex, Teddy found out that Owen may have feelings for her, wonder what she is going to do with that. Love that Cristina has a room at the McMansion in the woods. Next week looks scary, just saying.

I just though of something. (About J.caps pregnancy) What if Callie gets shot. Arizona realize that she want to spend her life with Callie and gives in on the whole baby thing. But beacuse Callie got shot the to stomach, there will be complivations so she can't have a child, and thats why Arizona gets pregnant instead. And if that happens, it would be perfect for J.Cap cuz then they don't have to just film her face all the time like they did with Ellen. They could actually show the pregnantcy!

I thought Mark and Lexie were over, they didn't really seem to care about each other anymore...so it seemed sort of weird that he went to talk to her just like that. Mark Sloan is sleeping around, big deal, used to do it before Lexie too, I didn't quite get the point why it was suddenly such a big deal, but well, we've seen worse.

I do think that Alex & Lexie have true feelings for each other, are they in love, no. Does she love Mark? I don't know. Earlier this season Lexie told Callie that she was in pain, that she slept with Alex but she loved Mark, then she said "I think". It seems like she does love Mark because it upsets her when he is with other people. But if she was totally in love with "Mark" and just having sex with "Alex", then the minute that Mark said he loved her and wanted a second chance she should of said yes, right then and there. Just saying.

MARK AND LEXIE (PERIOD)

For anyone thinking the shooter is male- Its not guaranteed the shooter is male just from the voice... It could be a guard or someone else chasing them because they see the gun. They may be trying to trick us.

Alex basically admitted in this episode that he's settling for Lexie. Izzie was the love of his life. Alex and Lexie were there for each other because they were each hurt by their perspective breakups but there is no genuine feelings between them other than physical attraction and friendship. Mark and Lexie are clearly still in love with each other and I sincerely hope Lexie makes the right choice. I agree with other posters that if she stays with Alex while still having feelings for Mark, Alex will just end up hurt later down the road if he does, in fact, START to fall in love with Little Grey. I think Lexie is finally more mature and ready to take that step with Mark that she wasn't quite ready to earlier. In other coupledoms - Teddy: please go away and Calzona: get back together! I sincerely hope MerDer IS the couple PG next week and that this is not some red herring by Shonda.
