Grey's Anatomy > Shonda Rhimes Speaks on Shocking Grey's Anatomy Death > Comments Page 5
I too am upset that of all people to kill off, Lexi!?! She and Merideth were my favorites. Poor Merideth has been threw a lot throughout the series, why put her threw more heartache! There were plenty of others on the show that should be cut but Lexi!?!, not a good choice. This sux.
Cried like a baby whne Lexie died, but knowing that Chyler wanted more family time I understand the decision. Eric Dane was great please let have more air time, particularly with Derek they are great together. If Meredith had stayed with Lexie, what would have happened if Derek had died alone, she was right to go look for him, the love of her live and the mention of Zola almost broke my heart. We now know who is returning, cannot wait to see the rescue and recovery. Well done Shonda.
For all of you who are now staying "that's it,no more" well it was nice to have you in the family, but don't forget you have to take the good and the bad, the stories will not always be what you want.
Let's be honest. No matter how Shonda wrote it, whether lexie dies early or later in the show... whether ANYONE dies in the show... or even if she doesn't die but leaves... people will ALWAYS have something to comment and be unhappy about.
Juliette: I totally get where your coming from with the annoying April Christianity thing.I mean if she was that close to god then why can't she repent and go back to the way she was. It's getting annoying and making Avery feel like crap. It really would of been great to see Meredith and Lexi get to say goodbye to each other. I just can't believe how poorly written this script was. I wish I could say I won't watch it again, but I just love these characters. I hate how they are writing them.
NOOOOO, not Lexie, please just let this be Meredith's nightmare & she'll wake up & Lexie will be eating cereal in the kitchen.......
Goldie : OMG you just wrote exactly what I thought! I finally watched the episode tonight on CTV and I also thought there was no climax. It was just a really sad, slow motion, mess...I can't believe that they kept April and made her talk about christianity again. She stole 5 minutes of the show whining about her messy life when she isn't even a doctor anymore
wow....I gotta say I'm glad I did other things last night... I'm shocked...I really didn't want Lexie to die....Also, the season finale didn't end...We have to wait 4 months.... But after the mess that GG was monday....I bet Grey's Anatomy was going to be bad also....Now I'm watching Nikita and Pierce JUST DIED! The show's vilain, the antagonist...Just died! Nikita is now in charge of division.I cannot believe this is happening ....
All my favorite shows have gone caput...Who are these writers and have they just gone insane?
No offense to Kim Raver, but her character was never a character you could actually like. She was okay, but to me it was only ever Cristina and Henry that made her character interesting.
In regards to Chyler Leigh, I loved Lexie since her first appearance. I would have been sad if the character left the show, but killing her off cut deep. It also pissed me of that Lexie didn't get a last moment with Meredith. I get that her and Mark had a thing for years, but Meredith is her sister and the reason for her character coming in to begin with. Hopefully it gets acknowledged next season.
I didn't love this season finale. I like the intensity of the doctors trying to save each others life's with the only things that they had around them. I wasn't to happy about Lexie's death but I understand that the actress and Shonda both agreed on this outcome. My biggest problem is that her death should of been a huge climax in this episode. I understand it's a tv show so not everything is going to be realistic so if she is going to die in a plane crash then make it intense. She was crushed under a plane and died in the first 15 minutes. It could of been intense with all the doctors trying to save her life with their own major injuries. Meredith didn't even get to say goodbye to her sister, b/c she was looking for Derek. She had a heart breaking scene with Mark and then she dies. This episode never felt like it had a climax. Everything at SG was just boring. She shouldn't of been trapped under a piece of metal but had other crazy injuries and everyone trying to save her life until s
why did you have to pick her to die she was one of the best on there and i wanted to see her and mark together. thats wrong and you need to bring her back. when they get her to the hospital they see her moving and realize she is not dead and is able to help her live and take someone else off, the baby doctor. she is ok but the other one is way better, its going to tch without seeing her run into mark. they needed a change to be together. bring her back.
@ Kate: Thaaaaank you for your perfect comments!!!!!!
We've spent this season with Teddy as a widower trying to move on after her husband's death and now we're going to spend next season with Mark being the "widower" who just lost the love of his life. So much for new ideas and development!!
I was very disappointed that Lexie was killed off, and so early in the finale. I kept hoping maybe she had just passed out and later on, there would be some sort of dramatic discovery that she was still breathing, or she had a faint pulse. I think it's strange given she had just professed her love for Mark, and we knew, deep down inside, that he loved her too. Why not have some sort of dramatic cliffhanger about their love for each other - does he really love her back? - to keep us tuned in the fall. I'm very disappointed, perhaps the actress had a better offer, but I think it was a shitty thing to do to one of the best characters on the show. This should have been a two hour finale as in past seasons, the whole episode was a let down. I've been watching the show since it began, the death of Denny Duquette still stings, but at least that love story with Izzy had a chance to play itself out in some way. Maybe they'll have Dead Lexie come back the way Dead Denny did.
i was sitting at the edge of my seat, i'd cover my mouth, i'd scream, i'd cry i was complaining because soooooo many commercials,i was sad i'd bit my pillow. i loved it!all this mix of emotions i was exausted when the episode was over.
i felt like i was right there in the middle of the woods with them,lexie will be missed,dereck aouch, mark body pain and soul pain,christina will get stronger,meredith will grow as a person,and arizona? well i think callie's love will keep her alive. standing ovation for shonda!. bravo! i will b here waiting for more grey's anatomy.
I cried when I watched it, and I went to watch it again and I cried again. I really like Lexie, she brought color in Meredith's life as a sister. And she always remained positive (most of the time). I'm really shocked and sad to see Lexie go. Hey, I guess everything happens for a reason. The summer is TOO long for me to wait and see what will happen next! I'm on the EDGE LOL!!!! Grey's Anatomy did it again. Shonda Rhimes' shows ROCK!!!!! She always leave you wanting more :D.
I could NOT sleep last night. I waited so long for Mark and Lexie to get back together. This episode REALLY bothered me. I kept hoping that it was a mistake and that Lexie was still alive--though she appeared not to be. I've worked at hospitals and it happens more often than you think. And then I thought, even if they bring her back they'd probably amputate her legs and also say that because her pelvis was crushed, she couldn't have any kids, etc., etc., etc. I wouldn't like any of that. What can I say? I'm a romantic who always hopes for a happy ending!!!! Seriously, life is tough enough as it is. When I watch TV, it's to ESCAPE. The only escape I had last night was into HELL.
It makes sense to kill off Lexie. I loved her too, but with Chyler wanting to leave for more family time, not killing her would have put Sloan in perpetual writing-purgatory. It's going to severely limit the story if you constantly have an off-screen romance between Sloan and never seen Lexie. It just won't work. It will marginalize Sloan and limit Eric Dane as an actor.
Unless Lexie and Mark broke up, the character of Lexie HAD to die. There was no other way. Altman can go because there was really nothing left for her that binded her here. Cristina can always get a new teacher (as evidenced by the last 3) and Owen's relationship with her was already strained. Pulling focus to rebuild an Altman-Hunt dynamic strains any hope of a Cristina-Owen reconciliation.
I'm sorry Lexie had to die. I cried like a baby. But, for me, she had to go for the story to go on when the actor that portrays her wishes to exit the show.
Alex and Cristina cannot take over for Robbins and Altman, respectively. The latter are fully trained department heads. The former are still only 1st year fellows, one in a 2-year fellowship the other in a 3-year fellowship, that don't even hold attending status in their specialties, much less be the chiefs of their specialties.
Alex will still need a peds surg attending to teach him and help him with his peds surg boards. And Cristina, now that Altman is gone, will need yet another Chief of Cardio to teach her for the next three years and help her pass the cardio boards.
Instead we get a "She's dead" straight forward statement from Mark. I wanted a scene with Mer and her saying how happy she was that Lexie was her sister. I wanted a scene with Mark screaming "No I'm not leaving her" while they dragged him away. If not held off her dying till the very end, that way the suspense is still there on who would die.
But no. She died early and the rest got BORING. If I were a Slexie fan I would definitely feel cheated. Her death was just not handled properly. This eppy was emotionless, it was like CL didn't want to do anymore so they decided to kill her on page5 and the rest of the cast just phoned it in. Not to mention between Callie preparing for a striptease and April's crap, the hospital drama drained all the suspense out of this episode. So this was an EPIC FAIL!
Since Lexie is already death, the only way I find Mark and Lexie can end up together is with Mark's death. He had serious intern injuries and they performed risky stuff over him in a very precarious way... There are lots of chances of him dying. I know it would also be sad to lose also him, but even though he has a kid,Callie and Arizona, I really don't find place for him in the show anymore. Can't imagine Mark in love with another woman and refuse to see him unhappy forever remainding Lexie. He would also make place for Jackson to stay at SG as plastic surgeon and start with Jackson and April's sotry...We do not have long stories to continue, but we do have future stories to wait for... Also think that April has been getting much more attention last season, she deserves a chance to grow on SGMW and to be loved as a character...
Just my opinion.
P.S. Lexie was also my favorite and I was a huge fan of Lexie and Mark couple, want them to end together anyway!!!
I hated this episode because it was devoid of all emotion and excitement. Okay so Lexie died but she died with very little fanfare. There was barely an emotional impact there. Yes there was a sad moment with Mark and Mer crying for like 2 seconds then that was it. They didn't even mention her (apart from a little bit from Mark) when they were together at the crash site.
Lexie deserved a much better send off than that. She was more than just Mark's love, she was Mer's long lost sister, Derek's little sister, Cristina's friend and has worked with AZ from time to time. Why couldn't they have grieve her. I get that they were all shocked but to just forget her at the end. No crying from Mer, no mention, no nothing.
Busy brains come up with all kinds of maybes. How to keep people at SGH.
1. Arizona can't work for a while so Alex steps in.
2. Derek can't work for awhile - needs surgery and rehab - so Meredith steps in to work with another neurosurgeon
3. Teddy is gone, so Christina takes over (did Owen have that in mind when he fired Teddy?)
4. Mark needs surgery and is devastated about Lexie, so Jackson takes over.
Pretty tidy, huh?
I can not believe Lexie is dead. I loved Lexie and Mark and i did believe that their story would be fantastic. I am so disappointed i can't even express. There is one problem with the writers - they do not know when to stop. It has been 8 seasons and rather than killing off characters that we love it would be great to give them the endings they and we deserve and end the show. Seriously ... plane crash???? this already is too much. Grey's anatomy was one of my favorite shows but enough is enough.
Lexie was the 1 character that i could relate to in every way and to watch her die was heartbreaking. this show has meant a lot to me and i am content with the way Lexie left-it just reminds us all that life is unexpected and real because these things do happen everyday and tragedy strikes too quickly and before you realize it..your life has changed, whether you like it or not, in a blink of an eye.
if you are a true fan of greys then just trust that the writers know what theyre doing-whats best for the fans and the cast.
im going to miss lexie and teddy and i cant wait for the new season..its going to be great!!
I am sad for Meredith! Lexie was a great character, but never was a Mark/Lexie shipper. Please bring Izzie back and give Karev a decent story line!
The problem with a Lexie storyline for next year was that she was a still a resident and everyone else had moved on to fellowships. (well except April) Without having continued to show the other residents in her class there really was no way to create a decent storyline for her. (which I believe was part of the reason for basically seeing her as a whining, pining, mess this season!). I do think her death should have taken longer in the episode. I cried more when Meredith said to Christina "You are still my person even if I'm not yours" then when Lexie died.
