Yeah, really. I know it's only a tv show, and they're often crazily unrealistic, but this episode took the cake. Just bad, bad, bad. As so many have noted here, who survives a crash like that with minor injuries? How does the plane disappear and not be noticed? And neither the black box/location transponder or the flare gun work? No fire when the plane crashes? And, of course, the fact that they're all too stupid to know how to start a fire and keep one going? Really? This was just crap. The only possible explanation is, as has also been noted here, the whole thing was a dream/hallucination of Meredith's (which also occurred to me). I mean, if they can do it on Dallas, why not Grey's? If this many disasters actually happened to hospital personnel in real life w our hospitals would all be empty. Come on writers, you're supposedly the creative talent, come up with something new not this old crap.

P.S. I get that is it a season finale but please Shonda can we make it through one season without killing SOMEONE at the end... They were all headed different places anyway - I am getting a little tired of as Christina excellently put it "Seattle Grace Mercy Death". Thank goodness she made that comment. It makes me giggle a little because at least the watchers aren't the only ones who notice :)

@Marion I agree about the flight plan... But having lived in that area - cell phones are generally useless. Unless you are in town or very lucky it is a pretty big dead zone.

The dumbest part of the episode was the fire issue. I mean they are doctors - they KNOW better!

RIP Lexie - You did a good job of growing on me! Poor Mark!

While I thought it could be anyone, my money was on Lexie. It makes sense. First, she didn't have much of a story this season a la George in his last season. In fact, wasn't she absent the first few episodes?

Secondly, she's popular but she's not an original so if you need to eliminate characters and shake the status quo then it had to be one of the 'new comers'. For drama, it needed to be someone that's been around for a long time and well liked.

Finally, out of all the 'secondary characters', there wasn't a lot of mystery left. The sibling issue was resolved some time ago and tying Mark down would take away from his character.

I liked Lexie but I'm looking forward to ebb and flow of next season.

@tracymae totally agree! insulting is a good word...not well thought out at all...I do wonder about the wind chimes though, it's bothering me LOL...

@blu...I totally agree about how Meredith reacted...it was almost as if she didn't care about her sister, even after Derek was found...Cristina showed more emotion towards Lexie...and @marion...I too think it wasn't thought out v well...someone HAD to have a mobile phone, SOMEONE would have realised they were missing long before...bit ridiculous imo

um...@luvsalex, Derek did say 'boats'...he loves ferry boats and was in and out of shock just like all of them, that's why Cristina was freaking out about her shoe, lol...@sandy, the episode you referred to is called "if/then", and Lexie did not die...Meredith and Cristina saved her life at the end by 'cracking her chest'...I too am wondering what is up with the wind chimes...v strange

Why are the survivors not using their cell phones? The first one anyone in this country would do is use their cell phone to call for help! Was there not a flight plan filed? Were all the air traffic controlers asleep? This was not a well thought out script.

To say I'm pissed is an understatement. They killed lexie after giving her virtually nothing to do all season. I liked her enough to be pissed iver her dying and them keeping characters like April out of harm's way. Then the continuance of destroying mark as a character? Can he ever be happy in this series without being the proverbial dog being kicked regularly? The over the top Lost like plane crash was a new type if ridiculousness. And Meredith. She barely gave a damn for her sister because she was too busy looking and whining about Derek. Even after they found him...no one tried to stabilize the others before this Derek search and tending to. They pretty much left the pilot for dead, left Arizona alone yo tend to herself and are oblivious to how bad she's gotten. Didn't bother checking mark until ut was too late and made a fire without gathering wood that only kept mer Yang and Derek warm and left the others in the cold to die. Seriously?

For everyone that's saying they are not watching this show anymore, you are dumb. Grey's Anatomy is an amazing show, with amazing actors and actresses, with an amazing storyline. I have never been hooked to a show as much as I have with Grey's.

I mean, yes, i was devastated when Lexie died, heck i even cried. But you have to admit this was an incredible way to end the season.
