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?

Julia, that relationship will fail again cause on this show all the relationships fail again, and stories are the same always in one way or another cause that's happens on every show after a few seasons, the thing is if you like that character or that couple. I don't like owen and his relationship with cristina and obviously you don't like mark

Just a question, who was the elderly heart patient, who played opposite Marion Ross in last night's episode?

Mark wants what he can't have. Plain and simple. He pulled the same thing with Addison too. He wanted her when she was Derek's wife and then when he was with her and she was pregnant with his child he went and cheated on her with several women. She dumped him and he came after her to Seattle saying how he was in love with her and wanted her back. The same story is now happening with Lexie. Derek said Lexie was off-limits and that's when Mark started wanting her. He had her and easily chose his daughter/grandchild over her and slept with Addison and a string of women after. Lexie is now with Alex and Mark got dumped by Teddy so of course he makes a play to get Lexie back. He went from sleeping with Reed and propositioning Teddy for a threesome to telling Lexie he's in love with her the next day. Mark cannot be taken seriously. Even if Lexie goes back to him that relationship will fail. Mark my words.

About: "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?" I think mark's feelings are genuine, and I didn't know this site on season 2, but I didn't think derek's feelings for mere were more about wanting what he couldn't have (he was a jerk from chosing addison to call whore to mere). I mean mark is really dense sometimes but that doesn't mean this couple and their fans don't deserve another chance, just the same second chance another couples got or are going to get, do you like if callie started to sleep with karev (again) and she stayed with him cause karev is alone now and she is in pain?. Well, I think karev deserves a partner but not lexie, I don't like them and I hate them more when I think it is only cause katherine H. isn't in the show anymore. the one character is more about wanting what he can't have is owen, he isn't cheatting on yang physically but yes morally, and he is a traitor as a friend too. I don't like this couple, it is destroying a character I loved: cristina yang, I really hate owen, however they'll have another chance. Well, I want to mark and lexie have another chance too

I definitely think Mark's feelings for Lexie are genuine and not about wanting what he can't have. The reason they broke up was because they both wanted different things, not because they didn't love each other. And in all the months they've been apart, Mark has never been shown to be over Lexie. Quite the opposite in fact. Look at the way he was treating Alex because he was mad that Lexie slept with him and the look of pure hurt when he saw them coming out of the on-call room together. He went around telling anyone who would listen that Lexie dumped him. He told Callie that he wanted a family with Lexie. Even when Lexie asked him how he learned not to care, he told her he was still learning (obviously talking about her). So yeah, I think his feelings for Lexie are genuine. They might not have shown him pining over her for episodes on end, but nothing they have shown tells me that he ever stopped loving her or wanting to be with her. If it was up to him, they never would have broken up in the first place.

All around pretty awesome episode. Although I like Alex & Lexie, it looks like she will end up with Mark. So I guess that great kiss last week was all for nothing. Oh, well. I guess I shouldn't expect anything different because in the last 3 or 4 season finales Alex always ends up alone, sad or crying. I have no idea who gets shot, it seems like Derek will but that wouldn't be a shock because so many of us think it will be him.

oh and for Mark wanting what he can´t have..... he pretty much had it for a year and still has if you saw they way Lexie desperately tried to tell herself that she is with Alex and don´t cares about Mark the whole episode Alex was REALLY hurt by Izzie and he REALLY wants a normal girl"!he said this!"....i would say his feelings are not as genuine as he wants them to be...:(
Alex needs a woman who is really with him bc of him...he deserves to be happy...but should this mean Lexie should stay with him just to not hurt him...i mean wouldn´t THIS also hurt him....

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.
