I don't think she should give him a child, at all. He supported her because he realizes that she doesn't want to be a mother, doesn't want to have children. She wants to be a surgeon- the best surgeon. Like Mer said, she had a Christina as a mother, and the child would not benefit. He came to the understanding (imo, ymmv, etc) that bringing a child into their marriage would be no good for the child.
@ everyone else-
I loved the episode- I have to admit that I was completely skeptical that Christina would even have an abortion.
Over the hiatus, I kept coming around to the story that Christina told (George? Dead Dads club, maybe?) someone about her father dying while she was right there, that he died while she had her hand on his chest- something. I thought that perhaps she'd have a total breakdown and say she didn't want to be a parent because of that, losing a parent, and not wanting to potentially do that to a child....
I thought maybe if she didn't go thr
I agree the second ep had me more than the first!!! but KUDOS to shonda, the director and the people who made the sink hole happen... It was amazeballs!!!!! WOWW!!!!!
I liked that they didn't have too many intersecting patient story lines and it was just about the couple and the father and his child.
Derek is an ass!!! even though he didn't rat out the scheme that Christina cooked up... I hope a wild jackalope eats him in the woods...
Shonda didn't lie when she said that the Christina story line would end in a suprise. Never saw Owen accepting it. I thought it a possibility but didn't think it would end that way. I hope that by 8X24 she gives him a child. Cuz any man who can stand by their wife having an abortion needs something to make up for that, and I hope Christina realises that.
Ugh, I really thought April would be the Gunther, she should have taken hold of the situation instead of leaving it to Jackson... Doesn't he have his good looks going for him....
As I thi
Love that the episode was focused on the old cast! Every Christina/Meredith moment was just briliant and the speech that Meredith gave to Owen gave me goosebumbs. Best thing she said in a while! And I'm proud of this series that Christina is allowed to do the "unforgivable". Derek is sooo annoying! I find him a bigger jerk than even Alex! Btw. Alex/Christina/Meredith scenes were epic too! I can't be mad with him for long. I just love him too much! So now I guess we are once again looking out for a new Chief^^ Must say this ist't surprising at all!
Tired of Derek and his rightousness. Please. It's always about him. No wonder Dr. Montgomery had an affair. Even McSteamy has turned out to be more of a mensch.
Hope Jackson and Little Gray stay together. I don't like her with Mark. Life for her would be so boring tagging along with Mark, two women and a baby that isn't hers.
April as Chief Resident? Seriously??? She's incompetent. She couldn't do anything outside the box. And, she killed a woman so how did she become CR? Do the writers think we don't remember earlier epis?
There were some powerful scenens-Mer and Owen, all the Mer and Cristina, Mer and Alex and Cristina and Owen. Wow!!! Powerful stuff.
I waited a long time for these two episodes and sadly, I was disappointed.
Mer: Totally out of character. She was too unstable and inconsistent throughout the episode.
Der: Jerk needs to get over himself. Change him back to loving Mer or I will depart the show.
Bailey: Whoa, hate Mer?
Chief: Yeah, he fell on the sword for Mer, it was honorable. I'm gonna miss him as Chief.
Alex: Finally redeemed.
April: Go away
Lexie: Go away
Mark: Find some mischief so I can laugh.
Cristina: Hands down the champion of the episode.
Owen: I am beginning to like him more and more.
Teddy: I like her in love with Henry. Why do I know Henry won't make it?
Jackson: Take off your shirt, pose, then go away.
Zola: Adorable baby!
I don't know if it was bad writing,lack of direction or running out of storylines for all the characters but the episode left something yet to be disired.
I like the episodes but disappointed in a few things. Derek's behavier is totally out of character. All the stuff he put up with Meredith in the past, he would not have walked away from her when they lost their baby. Bailey, who was that woman. That wasn't the Bailey we all love from the last 7 seasons. She loved her interns/residents. The Chief was acting very weird. I liked the Chief the way he was in the first 3 season, authoritive, macho, in control. I know he is taking the fall for Meredith but a big hospital would never buy that. Again the writers must be new. They don't have the right feeling about these characters. And, if they are going to make Derek an ass the whole season, just so we won't be mad when he leaves, forgot about it. If they treat Patrick badly, I will never watch this show or another Shonda Rhimes show again, and if she says she has no control over his leaving, tell that some other person who is going to believe that....
@ Maureen, I guess I missed something because I don't remember Meredith getting the results of the gene study. Can you tell me the episode to confirm she has the gene for alzheimers so I can re-watch?
You have a point and I would agree with you if Derek's anger was about Meredith's health but that doesn't seem to be the case. He is pissed that she messed with his trial to save Adele because she did not follow the rules. She went gray on him again and didn't display perfect black and white behavior....at least that's what he's harping on. If Derek was upset because she ruined his chance to save her, he should articulate that because he hasn't to date and I can't be certain Derek understands that. He's complaining about not being able to understand her, to trust her, her morals (as if he's a moral compass!) and he's telling Owen he doesn't care how she's doing. That doesn't sound like a man concerned about her health. Even if he didn't say it to Meredith, we should hear him tel
Maureen - we don't know if Mer has the gene or not. Remember Derek asked her not to have the test run?
I get why he's upset, but still...it doesn't give him the right to say the horrible things he's said to Mer over the course of the show.
@ Meredith McDreamy I was thinking everything you said. Great episodes tonight!
Alex is my favorite character, even if he is a jerk sometimes, but I found it hilarious when Christina accidentally and temporarily killed Alex. His reaction when he woke up, and the fact that he seemed scared of Christina was just great. I wonder if the underlying arrhythmia that caused his heart to stop is going to be his storyline for this season. That would make sense why they are bringing his family on for this season.
Are these reviews written by a sex-crazed teenage girl? I find Mark and Jackson to be as attractive as the next woman does, but that's not why I watch the show or read the reviews here. The line about Mark being a DILF, especially. It has nothing to do with the episode, and is something you should be writing in your personal blog, not here. These two reviews for the premire were awful. Less sex and pictures, and more insightful words please. The review is titled 'So Long, Zola?', but all we get is five awful sentences about the Zola story line.
Most people seems to forgot why Derek is pissed with Meredith.
He is trying to save her life. Remember she is the one with Alzheimer in her genes. And the Clinical Trial was hope for a cure for the disease. If you all remember a few seasons ago when Derek was in the running for chief; and when he was ask why he wanted to be chief, he couldn't describe how he saw himself in ten years. He was more concerned with Meredith than his future.
Now when she tampered with the clinical trial, which if actually do well - it would save her life. Meredith is basically committing suicide in from him.
So I totally get why he is so upset.
As Owen told Meredith last season that she is reckless with her life. I do believe he is right. But Meredith also has very genuine kind side to her. She will sacrifice her own life for others. For instance telling the shooter in season six to kill her instead of Derek. Season two when the grab the bomb in the patient's body. Now she wants to save Adele life,
I don't think anyone could take Dereks place. He is my favorite . I actually hope no one leaves the show. This is the best show on tv.
Jackson and April has more chemistry than Jackson and Lexie!? Really? Where did that even come from? JA barely had scenes the last 2 seasons compared to JL. Wow. Way to pimp ML.
Derek is a jerk. Meredith should read him the riot act - she's too strong a personality to put up with his BS. He had no feelings at ALL and I know he is not THAT moral. Dreaminess loses it's touch when a true personlity reveals itself. Bring in a new Derek.
Excuse me could you guys tell me what exactly Meredith told Owen.i am Asian I cant catch up with what she saiD.Thanks all
love lexie and jackson but wanna see more of them..the whole mark and lexie story is overplayed it needs to be over. but i would love to see a love interest for mark
v @karen totally agree with you. i couldn't stand bailey or derek through the whole thing!
btw, Sandra was awesome
Very disappointed in this show. I know McDreamy wants this to be is last season but there is no reason to turn him into an ass. He has more compassion then that. And making Baily act like she hates Meridith... seriously??? Glad Owen came around. Oh well .... *sigh*
I will say that this is honestly the first time I've had to say that I couldn't stand Bailey. I've always loved her & her tough love & rants/speeches, etc. but she was so cruel and cold about Meredith and I felt that she was more whiny/immature like a teenager, rather that her usual comical complaints, etc.
Really not liking Derek. He really treats Meredith like crap. Where has the McDreamy we all know and love gone?
Christna good job on the stab with alex but he one point for helping them and I want merder to have a mcbaby not a mcadopted baby and owen thnxs for forgiving and forgetting but u still don't kick her out bailey had a stick up her butt
we are soo on the same brain wave. and now that i think of it, you are right about Bailey and Mer, does seem unfair.
Im with Meredith Mcdreamy on this one, derek's speech is really poor writting, as well as his character personality. I read somewhere this episode was getting a merder scene where fans would remind why they love this couple, for me it wasnt the case, i just heard derek say meredith do stuff like this because she loves people so much but i didnt believe he meant it. I'm with richard "I'm defending your wife, what are u doing?".
I loved this couple, like they were in season 3, but now I think Meredith should be with someone who will defend her , she already had someone who didnt (her mom). Im sorry about my bad english but I'm european
@ Farsia, I couldn't agree more.
Derek is a self-righteous ass who is FAR from perfect. His morals suck and I'm growing tired of the poor writing around this topic. It's hard for me to believe that Cristina and/or Alex wouldn't be quick to remind Derek of his mistakes, his lack of judgment and his poor morals as they constantly witness him treat Meredith like dirt. It's equally hard for me to understand the depth of his anger. It would make since if Meredith's act lead to HIM being fired or HIS medical license on the line. In fact, Meredith's act only hurt Meredith - it hasn't had any real effect on Derek, accept that he had to allow someone else to run the trial. He's allowed to be angry for that but to tell Owen he doesn't care? Seriously, why should Meredith stay with someone who constantly abandons her when he doesn't like what she's done? Wasn't it Derek who insisted that one of the post-it note vows be that they couldn't walk away? That they had to stay and fight and
Such an incredible set of episodes to kick off Season 8! A couple of thoughts:
-Derek is within his own right to still be pissed at Meredith. I don't know about y'all, but I think any real person would be devastated to learn that their partner compromised their job. Did Meredith do what she did for honorable reasons? Of course. Is Meredith a good person? Of course. But like Derek said, sometimes Meredith's level of insanity defies imagination....and in the real world, that has unfortunate consequences. Kudos to the writers for not completely settling this issue in the season premiere, but I do hope Der & Mer get back on track soon.
-Sandra Oh deserves an Emmy! She brought a fantastic combination of wit and emotion to these episodes and is my favorite character to watch every week.
-Not surprised about Avery. Remember Season 6 finale, when he took the monitors off Derek to make Gary Clark think he had died? It seems as though he was introduced as a very talente
