Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Review: Unanswered Fates > Comments Page 6
It was announced last week that the originals have signed up for two more years: Ellen, Sandra, Justin, James, Chandra, and Patrick.
I want to say Jessica's was renewed as well along with Eric, Kevin, and Sara. The only ones up in the air is Jesse and Sarah. Shonda has always been explicit about keeping Jesse. But given that the only people that could leave were all in the plane, I want to say everyone at the hospital, sans Kim, will be back for at least season 9.
So the most likeable character in GA is gone - just makes it even more likely I won't watch it next season. It used to be a great show, but this finale was pure trash. The ending of anything, whether a story or a season on TV, is supposed to be based on the things that happened during the preceding storyline, not this sort of cheating.
OK, so Although I absolutely LOVE Grey's Anatomy more than any other show ever made, I HATED this epp. I thought the death of George was going to be the last time I cried hysterically for a show, but they had to break my heart again! Really Lexi? I absolutely love her and I've been awaiting in anticipation for the day that her and Mc.Steamy got back together, and for her to dye holding his hand as he confesses his love to her was just too intense! I agree with those who said they'd rather Kepner die then Lexi. It just completely broke my heart and cried all night!
And the ending really left me hanging and not in a good way. Some of the actors contracts are up in the air and we're still not sure who's coming back next season so to just leave us not knowing who's going to make it threw until God knows when just left me unsatisfied. (on top of all the crying)
Hope next season comes REALLY fast because I'm dying over here...
P.S. Bring Lexi back! >:(
I was hoping it was Arizona leaving, not Lexie. Poor Mark! But Mark, lose the hair-dye. The natural gray was so much sexier!
Hahaha - this is great comedy - reading these posts. I love Javi's - " I hate Shonda Rhimes, I really do" and "I'll just watch season 9 premiere and I'm done with grey's". Really? If you hate it so much - stop watching - PERIOD. Armchair writers and directors - if you can do better, have at it! Head on into that field and let's see how much better y'all can do! Smh...
Wish it was Kepner instead of Lexie - Love this Show - Please keep Marc alive - He's needed to fix Derick's arm and hand - Hurry Up Sept.......
I thought choosing for Lexie to die instead of leave was a terrible choice. She's the most immature character, with so much growth potential, it just doesn't make sense. She's still the silly girl who loves novels and gets bullied by the senior residents and can't figure out what love is. Her story was left open-ended. It would be much more satisfying (or less difficult) to see someone like Meredith, who had transformed and become the person she was meant to become, to die. Lexie's death was too tragic. There's tragic poetic and tragic tragic, and death of a character who had played through their storylines and demonstrated growth and self-actualization is that much more meaningful.
Suprisingly, I wasnt surprised. Looking back at Lexie's story line for the last half of this season it reminded me of George. I have been disappointed by the writing for her character (being a glorified babysitter). At the same time I am very sad because Chyler Leigh is such a great actress :/
The Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery is like the Professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts. It's constantly a revolving door on who will retain that post. Burke had it longest, then Altman, than Hahn, and Dickinson never actually accepted the position.
It would be interesting if they brought back Burke in season 9 to instruct Cristina. Then it would be kind of awkward between Hunt, who will be Burke's boss, Burke, and Cristina. Though I know it'll be highly unlikely next to impossible.
S9 will introduce a new Chief of Cardio. I wonder who he'll/she'll be. Hopefully it'll be an Asian dude or an Indian lady. GA needs more diversity in an increasingly white crowd. During the first 2 seasons, half the cast wasn't white, and now, in a principal cast of 14, it seems the only people of color are Torres, Webber, Yang, Avery, Bailey. I don't count Ben since he's not a principal cast member.
Probably one of the worst episodes of GA and definitely the worst season finale IMO. It wasn't touching.... come on, we were all expecting about the death and SR solved it in the first 20 min??? And if you saw the promo then you expected it was lexie and arizona so finally lexie's death was very predictable. And what about the rest of the characters? No intrigue. The original cast has renewed so all of them will be back. Without teddy and lexie, Owen has enough money to renew April and probably Avery'll decide to stay with her to try the relationship. Again, no intrigue. I feel really really disappointed!! The best, one more time, Sandra Oh!
The only one of the group that can have actual attending status is Mer, and that's because she elected to go into general surgery. Because everyone else chose a specialty outside of general surgery, they'll still need additional training as fellows.
Cristina is not going to replace Teddy. She can't. As skilled as she is, she still requires the prerequisite training of three years in her cardio fellowship to actually be a cardiothoracic surgeon, and then pass her cardio boards to be a cardio attending. There's no way she'll be the chief of cardio as a first-year fellow.
Same thing with Alex. He needs another two years in his peds surg fellowship to actually be a peds surgeon, pass his peds boards to be a peds attending. He's not going to replace Arizona as a first-year fellow.
I agree with Anna - I'm devastated, Lexie has been one of my favourite characters, but actually that made it so much more emotional and gripping, and I'm glad that Lexie got such a memorable exit. One of the best things about Grey's is that they aren't afraid to kill of major characters, unlike other shows, so you never really know what's coming (I just wish they were a bit better at keeping casting news quiet). I'll miss her character loads though!!
Great episode - silly, yes, too short, yes, deliberately open-ended, yes, but seriously dramatic and with a great script; it was heartbreaking hearing Callie talking about how good her life is, and Cristina was still entertaining even in a crisis. Grey's does finales better than anyone...although Vampire Diaries may be getting close!
Meh. It was OKAY. I left feeling like it could have been WAY better. The discontinuity of the forest scenes and the hospital scenes ruined a lot of the drama for me. Plus I feel like they ended it really badly. It should have been a two hour episode that at least had SOME sort of conclusion. It felt like the writers were just trying TOO hard to create a "cliff hanger" at the end, at I think it backfired. But non-the-less ill be watching Grey's up to the end.
My favourite scene is a tie between Bailey and Ben at the end and Lexie's death... i wish they had gotten rid of a supporting character instead.
The one coming slighty behind is when Cristina screams "I found it!" and Arizona says " The first-aid kitt?" to hear back "No I found my shoe!!"
I hated, hated, HATED this season finale. I hate Shonda Rhimes, I really do.
Did she have to kill Lexie? If Chyler wanted out, why wouldn't just send her away to another hospital? It would have made me less pissed off.
I'll just watch season 9 premiere and I'm done with grey's.
WTH Shonda!! Kill off Lexie but keep the whining Kepner??!! Un-freaking real!!
I wish you people would at least learn how to spell! All of these posts are just painful to read and this is coming from a 7th grade teacher!
My gut told me it was Lexie and i guess i was right :(
I AM SO MAD!!
TWO WORDS ! PISSED OFF !
SHONDA I HATE U ! U HAVE AN AWFUL EVIL TWISTED BRAIN!!!
This finale, brilliant! Totally brilliant!
I agree with you all, to kill Lexie was perhaps stupid since she is a really likable character. But that's just it! If it had been someone the majority of the viewers didn't like, you would probably just shrug and move on.
This, with Lexie dead, I cried for almost the entire episode, and when I stopped, I remembered she was dead and cried some more.
And I was sickened by the fact that no one noticed at the hospital, everyone just kept on going with their day. Sickened in a good way though!
Oh, Grey's Anatomy, you do know how to stir up the gut-wrenching emotion of sorrow, over a character!! Amazing, absolutley amaaazingly heartbreaking!
What I did find annoying was the back and forth between the crash site and the hospital, it may perhaps have been better with the hospital scenes in the beginning and ending of the episode. To see everything that happened at the crash site and thinking "they will come soon, the must come soon", and
poor mark and lexie
glad teddy leaving
I wish we had seen bailey in her thong!
My God, that was awful. Terrible, lazy storytelling. Cheap drama. Big, bloody plot twists because they can't write character drama. It's a story about the lives of doctors, and the dramatic payoffs come from bomb explosions, and maniac shooters, and plane crashes? Last night Yang said something like: "I can't believe this keeps happening." No kidding. Grey's Anatomy is almost as horribly written as Private Practice these. Put Grey's out of its misery. It's best days are long over.
I am just devastated......Lexie was my favorite character and Mark+Lexie my favorite couple in all tvseries......THEY WERE MENT TO BE!!!Seriusly shonda it was BAD!!!!sad and bad :((((((((((((((
I haven't watched the episode yet but I did watch the scene where Lexie died.It was sad and bittersweet, but there was no way anyone could have survived having a plane ontop of them, she had serve injuries, she was lucky she last for as long as she did, because if Mark died get the plane off her she would have died instantly as the plane was keeping her from bleeding out completely. At least the way she did die she got to tell Mark how she felt as did Mark.
In Season 9 I would like to see Addison return to help Mark recover and grieve for Lexie.As much as I loved Slexie, I have always been Maddison fan and I would finally like to see them have a happily ending be it in seattle or in LA... As for everyone saying there not watching anymore I don't think the cast or crew will give a monkeys f**k.
