I think bringing back Izzie and Burke is a great idea. They make a marvelous couple. Their return together would REALLY spice things up. Burke always should have been with Izzie. A TRUE trophy wife for such a prestigious surgeon. And I envision them with 5 little blessed kids. WONDER what Alex and Christina would think of THAT? LOL
(Sorry for the way the system has hacked up my comments. I am verbose...Maybe I should start writing fanfic...)
One of the reasons Callie handled Arizona's little white lie so well, (of saying that her "number" was only "one or two"), is not just because of what Mark said to her about how hard it has to be for Arizona knowing that he and Callie created Sofia. Nor was it what Webber said about how alcoholics will say they only had "one or two" drinks when in fact they are getting drunk every day. But after mulling things over Callie figures out what is important and goes home to prove it to Arizona.
She chooses the most natural and seductive way to prove this to her wife. No bowl of cereal in the face. No threat to "kill you if you cheat". No jamming an arm into the mouth of a lion. No. Just hot, steamy looks, stripping off clothes, unzipping a blouse, and the promise of make-up sex just around the corner.
(And that is why they are the healthiest couple on the show.)
In an earlier season when Arizona says that "this is not my dream" we know that it is Callie's dream. She gets the baby, the woman she loves, and the best friend. So all in all it may seem that Arizona has made the most compromises. But being with Callie brings her out of the shallow waters of casual sex, conquests, and one-night-stands. What she has with Callie is complicated but is far more deep and rewarding. So the compromises and sacrifices are worth it. And isn't that how she was raised by a father whose life was all about "honoring the sacrifices" her grandfather made?
Meanwhile Callie has matured immensely from all the twists and turns since that random kiss at Joe's. It's a testament to Sara's skill as an actor that her reactions to what the other characters tell her can be read almost wordlessly just in her eyes. You can watch her consider their remarks during surgery on the "idiot" who was mauled by the lion. And again when Mark points out that Arizona has to be
The only thing that rings false in all of this is that Callie never heard about any of Arizona's past until nurse Colleen hugged Arizona goodbye. I think a lot of us feel that it's unrealistic for Callie and Arizona to have gotten to the alter without having had this conversation. It was pretty clear that Arizona's explanation for not revealing her past was not believable. It wasn't in order to "protect" Callie, but to protect herself.
She was so flustered with all her excuse making that she didn't even notice how Callie's intention was on the bedroom, not the boxing ring. But at that point she was so nervous they were going to have a fight that she slipped into fast-talk, grasping at straws mode. I don't think the big revelation would have changed anything about their love for each other. It certainly didn't prevent Callie from wanting to show Arizona that all the others didn't mean anything to her.
No. Callie chooses the most natural and seductive way to prove that
I enjoy GA very much. I thought that the epi last Thursday with the older couple and the lion was good. but I also feel that there are many different avenues that the writers could take to keep Greys on top of its game. It seems that once the writers hit on a topic they beat that topic into the ground. For example, Christina&Owen,Callie&Arizona(thought we would never hear the end of those two)Izzie&Denny and Mer&Der trying to adopt Zola. The list can go on and on. Bringing Izzie and Burke back would spice things up. Lets add some sparkle and move on.I know a lot of you don't like Izzie and don't want her back but she would brighten things up for Alex who needs a boast in his love life. I hope we have many more years of GA but hopefully we will get off of some of these old topics.
I think I am the only Mark/Lexie fan left in the whole damn world .. who is not so happy with Mark/Lexie story .. :(
If Mark call himself golden trash, oh i mean golden boy of the hospital so Arizona is the golden girl of the hospital (yeah, she is).
@ janet, I totally agree about Callie and Arizona. First of all, it was the first episode this season where we have more about them than just 2-3 minutes, and it's always frustrating when they cut off the scene immediately, no time at all to enjoy it. They show more about other couples, even though they never show long (saaaaaad)
(This got cut from my last post:)
The unzipping reminded me of the Valentines day trailer scene. Of course as usual the writer cut the scene short with just a hint of a kiss as they disappear behind a wall. Someone posted a slow-motion of the kiss just like they did for the shower scene a few seasons back. Guess some of our fanfic writers will expand these unfinished scenes. (hint, hint, please do...)
So when Callie finally gets home and Arizona is her nervous babbling-brook self, Callie just keeps moving in on her (talk about a lion stalking its prey....) I love how Callie smirks when she first enters the apartment. Then keeps walking towards her as Arizona backs away. She takes Arizona's wine glass away, drops her jacket on the floor, and finally pulls off her shirt, all the while Arizona is back-pedaling and making her excuses about not telling Callie about her many affairs. Sometimes Arizona can be so...dense!
I think she should have looked a bit more surprised and turned on when Callie got down to her bra (a quick glance down at Callies gorgeous bod would have been nice)...instead of continuing to think they were going to have a fight. How obvious did Callie have to make it before Arizona could see what was on her wife's mind? It wasn't until Callie started to unzip Arizona's shirt that it finally occurred to her what Callie was up to??? The unzipping reminded me of the V
There were more well written and entertaining scenes in this episode than we've had in a long time. Funny: (Christina being Christina and tossing her cereal...priceless) Sad: (the old couple, Teddy telling herself "I am a widow"), more funny: ( Callie interrogating Arizona about her "number" and Arizona doing her fast-talk, plus the "Dr. Robbins help us....whaaa bit... hysterical)
Good interactions all around in surgery, in the found objects collection room, in the science lab, and especially all the Calzona scenes. It was a bit surprising to learn that Arizona like Mark has been something of a Don Juan herself. And we find out that dark-haired beauties are definitely Arizona's type. But for those who wanted Callie to go off into a jealous fit it was nice to see that her love for her wife was more important to her. I like that they play these scenes for the humor not the angst. There was more than enough of that for them last season.
As much it sucks to see Owen and Cristina going through this, I think it makes their relationship seem more real. TV shows hardly go there with main couples but it's a reality that people cheat and I'm interested to see how this will play out.
Okay, so I know there's no point in complaining about realistic science, engineering, or medicine in TV. It's a show and I still completely enjoy it. But, I absolutely cringed to see them bringing food into the lab while Cristina was working. Anyone with high school lab experience would know not to do that, and it's just sad to see, especially when they are attempting to portray something as awesome as tissue engineering!
I couldn't highlight what I wrote vs what I was answering to ...I never thought this show was about real doctors (the second part after the HUH was mine). As for Lexie...Please...She needs to step up! This relationship has been wrong in so many ways...They are in...they are out...they are in...they are out... Don't tell me she needs time to make up her mind, she has been doing that for ages!
Owen and Christina - Cereal...Old Christina is back! She is so pissed, the hurt has washed away, the pissed off stage is the best. Owen was a jerk in this episode and the last.
Mer and Der - ZOLA!! She is too cute!
Lexie - I understand her reservation, yes she has feelings for Mark but its like Derek said, if she tells Mark about her feelings she has to be sure its worth it and that she is not about to jump ship when something pops up, Mark is God (lol), weird things tend to happen to him. We all know that Mark will drop the eye doctor in a heart beat.
Wait a minute, did I miss something?? when did Grey's Anatomy ever profess to be a documentary? This is not about real life and doctors being short staffed and working there cutting hands to the bone. Its about relationships, cool surgeries and Meredith Grey. Who can't stand it - stop watching! Personally, I love Grey's Anatomy - that being said,I kinda expected more from the episode after the hiatus, but OMG there was a lion! lol
High time for Teddy to reach this point in the grief process - it was hard to watch.
Alex Karev - still sexy and attracting the wrong sort of woman - why do they always have to be going through some type of emotional roller coaster followed by life threatening medical problems. Pregnant Lady crushed by concrete pole - disaster, Izzie with the cancer - broke his heart and poor Morgan and her premature son who has three pages worth of issues. (I did love all these story lines, don't you just want to hug Morgan??)
Owen and Christina - Cereal...Old Christina
Liked it! Like Lexie, like Owen. I wish there were a little more interaction with Meredith and Derek. Happy Callie resolved her jealousy issue. Sad, super sad about the elderly couple. There was another episode a few years ago that I cannot watch because it makes me cry way too much. Whew. I don't think anyone posting actually loves the characters or the show. There is nuance. Good episode and I'm so wondering how these things will wrap up. I hope for a good outcome for Karev, for goodness sakes. And also for Bailey, for goodness sakes! :)
be Mrs. Sloan and a step mom (Because this is what mark wants soon with her and judging by her comment last night. She might not be to far off on thinking about having children with him) I don't think that makes her pathetic i think that makes her smart. Getting involved with mark she has to be more than a 100% sure, there is a kid involved now. So if that makes her pathetic then i guess a lot of women out in the real world are pathetic as well?
Lexie is pathetic and she doesn't seem to know what the hell she wants! I mean choose Mark or Jackson
Lexie doesn't want Jackson that has already bee established on the Screen. Jackson is in lust with Lexie, He doesn't love her and he never did. Mark moved on with Eye doctor but even Derek said he would drop her in a second if Lexie told mark her feelings. and at the last ML Scene it's clear mark wants her to tell him that there is hope.
Lexie knows she wants mark, She had been in love with this guy since she was 24 years old, she knows that she wants a future with him (She said that much in the first 6 months of their relationship. But Sofia being involved is a lot to take in right now. So she wants to make sure that she's in 100% before she makes any Decision that could possible hurt anyone. I don't see why that's a bad thing consider she has left twice before.
As far as Lexie being Pathetic because she is taken her time in deciding if she can be Mrs. Sloan and a step mom
After a hiatus, I thought there would be some movement in plot but nothing really changed. A disappointing episode.
@Ninni there was a happy couple this week : Arizona and Callie who have been happy the whole season, and actually Mer and Der, despise some downs have been quite happy for a while now.
I agree that sometimes it's exhausting to see all that drama for other couples, but then again, Grey's Anatomy is drama.
Why I am no longer watching: can we have a happy couple? Owen & Cristina for example? Sorry, I'm just weary of it all! Goodbye
The ratings for Grey's are sinking so low that Season 8 could indeed be the final season. Just saying.
I don't know how I feel about the whole Alex situation. I think that his actions were completely unprofessional when he was too close to Morgan and tonight when he was the disappearing doctor they were equally unprofessional. The other thing about the situation that surprises me is that all the people giving him advice have inappropriate relationships with people at the hospital or at least have had them. They are all unprofessional what makes his situation anymore unprofessional than all of them. I think the decent thing would have been to just tell Morgan that he can be there for her but simply as a physician.
Just saying...this is a show....Physician/Doctors/surgeon never act like that in real life. They work all day and then they go to bed. They don't party up or have amazing times with their friends...They do not sleep, they work all the time and most of them have no life other than work... I know that because I see my dad everyday going to work and do just that.....
Get rid of Lexie, Her pathetic look and demeanor is as bad a her whine. She always looks like a pleading puppy, only she is not cute. I actually haven't liked her or the entire arc from the beginning.
THANK YOU FOR SAYING THIS!
Lexie is pathetic and she doesn't seem to know what the hell she wants! I mean choose Mark or Jackson but don't keep them hanging like that. Mark seems to have actually moved on. Jackson needs to do it too (even if he slept with that girl two episodes ago, I still think he wants to be with her). Lexie NEEDS TO BE ALONE. SHE DOESN'T DESERVE EITHER MEN.
