There was so much to explore for them as characters, from a dark, twisty and angry place, to acceptance and finally growing mature etc. Lexie could wake by the end of the series, Chyler returning for the last couple episodes, giving Slexie fans what they wanted all along. Again, such a waste.
Overall, a disappointing episode. I will tune in next fall to see what happens next, but it's a definite let down from GA: bad, speedy writing, unrealistic arc, disrespect for both characters and audience.
As such, Lexie's death should have been so much more climatic, with both Mark and Meredith near her, like there's hope for her to survive until the very end. Or they could have discovered her dead already, it would have been a better option than killing her off within the first half of the episode. In comparison, Charles Percy's death during the shooting was more of a tearjerker for me, and I didn't like him.
I even think that there was room for Chyler Leigh to leave the show and for Lexie to be alive. I mean, it's such a waste! Lexie is Mer's little sister and only family, she is the love of Mark's life, she's teaming with Derek, on the path of becoming a great neuro surgeon, and she has a photographic memory!!! Shonda could have written her to be in coma, sent to a nursing home, while Mark and Mer are waiting/hoping for her to wake one day...
you know? Are difficult the things we live each day and when we get home we turn on the tv to see things we enjoy or at least see that the characters do have a happy ending .. but the things the do to these characters each season is unbelievable .. this is an exaggeration..is depressing!
It's way more common and realistic, and no less tragic: it's miraculous that somebody survives a plane crash (let alone five people), while there's always hope that people made it in a car accident... The fact that Owen and the other doctors/the authorities are not preoccupied by the lack of news/disappearance of the plane, is beyond believable there.
The injuries sustained by our beloved surgeons are rather believable (except for the pilot, he shoud be dead there!), but I would expect even more chaos: it's a freaking PLANE CRASH that you settled us for Shonda!
Great ending, I said along it was Arizona or Lexie, I thought Arizona because she took Alex's place on the plane, anytime you do the I missed the plane you made it, or I took your place, you are the one who is going to die.
I like Lexie, but really I am glad is was not Arizona, Callie has been through a lot (as she re-counted to the interns in this epi) and deserves to be happy.
One thing that really bugged me though, I know they are all surgeons but was NO ONE a scout of any kind? I mean for goodness sake you are in forest, building a fire was job one after getting everyone stabilized and together. You had metal to make a pit and enough kindling and wood to keep a fire going for a week, come one guys, that was just silly!
The first mistake that was made in regard of that finale is that it should have been two-hour long. There was so much to write and show us, and so little we were given in the end!
Take Teddy's arc. It comes as no surprise that she should want to leave SGMW Hospital for the Army. After all she's lost her husband, she's now losing her briliant student, and she's barely on speaking terms with her best friend. A new life is ahead! It SHOULD have taken longer than three short scenes, so that we understand how strong her bond with Owen remains for her to decide to stay in Seattle anyway. Then he firing her would make full sense, compelling her to live her life. I hope that we'll get a real closure scene between Cristina and her next season premiere. That's the least Shonda can do for Teddy's departure.
Now, onto the plane crash. First of all, it should have been a bus crash (or something along this line). It's way more common and realistic, and no less tragic: it's miraculous that some
Y couldn't have been Arizona!? Her best friend had died like the episode right before this so it would have made since to kill her, not Lexie when all she did wrong was follow her heart. The writers can still fix this just make the whole thing a vision that Meredith had, and she she wakes up, she realizes that she doesn't want to leave Seattle Grace. That is what I'm praying will happen. How dare they kill Lexie.
oh yeah kill mark to..what is he going to do with out lexi anyway? he just gonna be the depression in person..and kill meredith to because she can be married with an disable dereck, she's gonna has to work for both and never see her daugther as her mother did with her..and kill cristina to because she leaves seatle and if she is worry about find her shoe them probably has mental issues and end in a mental institute..oh oh and kill arizona to, because callie hasn't sufer enogh..oh yeah that's what Shonda think.,is not she a genius? yes my friends that's why grey's anatomy won't last much time...
i totally Agree fully and completly poor lexi and mark they never got their happy ending :(
@amy yes, alex was supposed to be on the plane, but arizona threw him off the case at the last minute. Which kind of pissed me off, because that took away the chance of him dying. His @haracter is useless. He's not even enough to hate anymore, he's just nothing
I forgot to mention Mark. I wonder how this will change him in S9. I certainly hope he and Arizona make it. Not sure I can take another death this soon. Also, I wonder what Alex is going to do when he realizes Meredith and Cristina are missing. They are his people; Meredith moreso than Cristina but still, it's the only family Alex has.
I thought the finale was excellent. I like that it didn't have a clean ending because that situation couldn't be resolved in hours when the plane's transmitter is not working and Owen had no idea they didn't arrive at the other hospital. Bravo. I hope Teddy is truly gone; I thought that story was sweet but Teddy is, and has been, a pointless character in my mind. I'm so sad Lexie was the one who bite it. I didn't like her at first but she grew on me and I loved seeing her interact with Meredith and Derek. I wonder what this will do to Meredith. Just when she finds a slice of happiness, something happens to spoil it. Can't wait until the fall to see what happens next.
This is a dark day, cause my favourite character died..
Wow! I have to say I didnt think Lexie would be the one to die! Im VERY happy that Arizona made. I enjoy her character and think that she adds to the show.
I understand Chryler leaving the show. But why did it have to be death? Why couldnt Lexie just leave the hospital because she couldnt be near Mark and they werent together.
Lexie wasnt my fave. But I think.she deserved a better exit. Chyler shouldve agreed to better treatment for her character. Her death was so over the top and cliched, I didnt feel sorry for her.
This epi had NOTHING on the shooting epi. That epi was high powered, hit me in the gut, heart, and throat!
oh :( RIP little grey. you will be missed.
I cried through the whole episode (watched it ad free!). Enjoyed it but nothing, for me, could beat the shotting finale. THAT was horrifying!! and every time I see it it STILL makes me cry.
Can't wait for September *sigh* it's gonna be a loooong summer.
Oh, did she say that? Well, that sucks, I'm going to miss Lexie, she was the only reason why I watched the show anymore....
Lexie was my favorite character and i don't think killing her was a good idea. it's another george o'mally fiasco. a wonderful character loved by many killed off with no hope of them ever returning even if they wanted to. i'm not sure how i can watch the show now without thinking about her every second. RIP Lexipedia, you will always be in my heart :'(
@samiam I totally agree with you.
So, I guess, now that Lexie is dead, April is gonna take her position at SGH. Makes sense, right ? Although I still have hope that this was just Meredith having a nightmare. We can dream...
that is so sad. Lexie never got her storyline really, she was always in the grey waiting list; i always assumed her time would come and now I feel a bit cheated-This season she was hardly present; (except her hair which was Excellent) and now she just dies. She was one character everybody liked I think, and she had some solid chemistry with Marc, it really is too bad. I almost wish that was TVD then she would come back as a vampire or sthing. Why keep April? WHY? why even keep Tedy? who cares? I would even rather Arizona to die, she has had her story told, she is complete. But Lexie we never really found out who she is as a woman, as a doctor..
It cannot be a dream. Owen got the call that the doctors never arrived. And Shonda already said the Lexie is not coming back. It can't be a dream.
I hate it.. I would prefer you killed off APril... I loved LExi.. she should have gotten married with mark... This is the worse i have seen and I am an addict to Greys...
Did anyone else hear the wind chimes? What was that about?
Great acting. Way too many commercials -- ruined the drama and impact of the episode.
Sad to see it was Lexie she has really grown on me! Yes April killing herself would have been better she is so annoying but predictable. With Teddy gone maybe Christina will stay. Can't wait for new season going to be a long summer!!
