Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Premiere Review: Everything Changes > Comments Page 5
I liked the episode a lot. And I understand why Shonda killed off Lexie and Mark instead giving them another way out, like driving into the sunset. But I'd be much more satisfied if they opened season 9 with plane crash aftermath. This would have been a perfect 9x02 episode.
Eric Dane wanted to leave the show and pursue other things and spend more time with his family....that is why his character was killed off.
It was an emotional episode....I have loved Mark Sloan since his guest appearance in Season 2...he has had so much growth...just really love him.
I love the flash backs Derek and callie had of him....they were his people and I am glad they were the ones by him in the end.
I am not quite sure how I feel about the show...Mark and lexie were my favorites....I am not a fan of Arizona, Avery or Kepner....at all. Owen is growing on me....I hope they give MerDer a lot of screen time because I am afraid that is all the show has left. Will miss my MCsteamy:(
I cried hystercally when Mark died and I knew it was coming but hard to watch just the same. Eric Dane wanted off the show and I am glad they chose this over him just moving away. He never would have left Sofia so this was Shonda's only option.
Budget cuts....seriously. Mark and Lexie had a long way to go and their story line would have been money in the bank. April and Teddy...no great loss and no vested interest in the new batch. Should have stuck with the winners.
If Shondra Rhimes was trying to shake things up, she did what she set out to do. But, the result is devastating to a program I've watched since inception. It was too much change. In my book, the show has lost its focus and some of the best characters on TV, not to mention the direction some of remaining characters seem to be going.
All throughout the episode I kept waiting for Sloan to wake up, but knew he wouldn't. I am glad they killed him off instead of having him walk out of sofia's life. I would have probably stopped watching greys if he just walked out on his kid. Although I LOVED his character and will miss seeing him on greys I think it was best to have him die.
I really missed lexie. She brought so much to the show. I really loved the fact that merideth and lexie were so close. That is one character I wish they hadn't killed off.
I never like teddy so I never missed her. Although I don't like april I felt her story line wasnt over so I was hoping she would come back. I want to know what happens between her and jackson.
I want christina back in seatte. I want to see hunt go and get christina. I would like to see him drive out there and get her since she can't get on a plane. Be her knight in shining armor.
Glad Alex didn't leave. I knew he couldn't leave after finding out they would do away with the w
BCB! Freakin loved the episode!
So choked to see Arizonas leg, think their plan for her is to leave the show. Just like E.R. when Ray lost his legs.. Cried my eyes out
Really gonna miss Sloan. But honestly, I didn't see him going on ater Lexie's death... Great shocker at the end with Arizona, the whole episode I thought she was dead, from the way they were talking about her. Agree though, they should have sent off Mark and Lexie into the sunset instead of this, but at least they're together now. Loved the "Medusa", it didn't feel forced. Since Meredith is grieving, she has no patience to teach or be nice with interns.
I am glad that Arizona is alive when she showed that she lost her leg i had to look away I think that callie was the one that cut off her leg and now Arizona Will probably hate her for a little bit but come around losing her leg now her only having one is a big adjustment for her
Cried like a ^$*ing baby for the whole episode. I hope they will show at little bit of Lexie too next episode =(
of all people. Why Sloan?!!!!! STOP KILLING OF BELOVED CHARACTERS PLEASE! I'd rather see Arizona die than Sloan. Despite that, one powerful episode. an hour full of emotions and struggles. Only in Seattle Grace. When Mark Sloacn said his partner would be Lexi Grey, my heart broke. I was reminded by Season 8 finale when they said goodbye :'(
Not happy about the episode. Question here: Why didn't for once sent Marc and Lexi off into the sunset and when the series ends you bring them back for the big finale? A Nurse Hathaway and Dr. Ross moment? That wasn't possible because it was "just" McSteamy? I really cant believe it and Arizona, why the leg story? Why not kill her off instead of Marc? Ok, maybe Shonda is creating a story for Arizona where she makes Arizona into an Athlete, letting her compete in the Paralympics? Any thoughts? Any thoughts why it had to be Marc?
In fact Shonda is only good at writing out characters through death: all the acotrs who portrayed Ellis, George, Reed, Charles, Henry, Lexie and now Mark left the show with their characters being dead except Katherine Heigl (Izzie) and Kim Raver (Teddy). Seriously, that sucks! I don't know how the show will keep its remaining viewers if Shonda keeps killing beloved characters!! BAD DECISION :(
Plus for the same price, she could have kill him in the same episode as Lexie but I guess it would have been too dramatic for viewers, but really, keeping him for two episode (inlcuding next week's) is dumb.
god it was so sad saying goodbye to mcsteamy...im really gonna miss him. Loved mer and cristinas face times and im missing lexi. It was a perfect balance of sadness and humour too.
Love the show but I wouldn't have continued to watch it if arizona was dead.... Sorry... I really think they should stop killing off people so often though... Stop the killing and send offs for a while... I liked the old set o people a lot n now they hired a bunch o uglies for me to watch.... Heeesh
Poor April! This is the second time she's been fired and rehired at this hospital! I would never want to work there again! Now what is owen going to do now that Alex is not leaving? Is he going to fire her again? Crazy! Poor Cristina! She is not being challenged at all! How did she get to that hospital without flying there? I will miss mcsteamy he truly was a huge part of each of the cast members lives! Sad there was no elevator scene with him and lexie. Maybe later...where's Zola? I swore Arizona died everyone talked about her like she died. Callie crying in closets, people telling Callie sorry, i just knew she was dead! Shocked the crap out of me when I saw her in the bed! I was sad because I thought Callie would be a single mom, Sophia had 3 parents and now down to 1! Can't wait to see the rest of the season!! :)
Thinking it won't be too long before Cristina makes a return to Seattle Grace Mercy Death... She either won't put up with the shit with Dr Thomas and leave or she will take over and have to leave. There is no way they can handle her!!
Don't think Dereks hand can cope with what he wants, and there has already been talk of him teaching so I can see a far more back seat teaching role lined up for him.
So sad that Mark has gone, it really won't be the same without him - loved the flashbacks of him although they made me sob like a baby :'(
It's hard to judge how much Lexi, Teddy and so on when evidently quite a bit of time has passed. I am looking forward to going back in time to see the immediate fall out. So glad Arizona made it! I didn't think they could kill off both Mark and Arizona for Callie's sake.
And finally, poor old Owen. I love that guy and the guilt is there, all over his face. I hope things pick up for him soon, both personally and professionally.
I pity Arizona hardcore. This is a huge turnover for her positive character.
Mark's death doesn't bother me, but I will miss him. I'll never forgive the fact that Shonda could have written him off with Lexie, but that's just life.
I did realize that April was missing and I was waiting for her to turn up. Couldn't careless about Teddy being gone. I ever really liked her teaching sessions with Cristina.
I'm really feeling for Meredith and I enjoyed that she was given the camera pretty frequently with Alex and Cristina.
Hopefully Shonda can keep up the writing and characters like she did this episode, seeing as it was a great season opener and though I'll miss Mark, I've come to terms with Lexie being gone, so Mark's departure won't be so hard.
Bring on next week!
i thought it would be ok to see Mark's death you know.. at least he'll be with lexie..
but chief was right if you think you're prepared for what's to come, you're not.
TEARS ARE FALLING
I hated that they killed Mark - and no Eric Dane did not want to go - ABC said cut payroll and Shonda decided to hire new cheaper actors instead of keeping him.
I hate her for that.
I would have rather she killed Arizona - she is so not good enough for Christina - from dumping her to go to Africa to now this - blaming her for saving her life.
She has always been a self-centered cry baby. They say Shonda is keeping her because of the gay demographic - but she gives Lesbians a bad name.
I wish they would get rid of April also - she is another little whiny bunch of self-centerness.
And I agree with those that said Meridith should have stayed with Derek tonight -
So sorry you don't have a best friend Jen! Christina and Meredith's relationship is the best part of this show and Mer has been puting her husband first often of late so I loved the iPad chats!
It was a good episode, but I wasn't aware Sloan was leaving the show so I never thought he would actually die and therefor didn't cry... Also I was so distracted with thinking I really couldn't remember Arizona dying that I found it hard to concentrate on anything else! That being said, wouldn't really have missed her, or Lexie and certainly not old what's her name who Owen went to bring back!
I hope until the end that Mark, my Mark stay alive.
I'm so deeply in love with him... He and Callie were/are my favourites of all the show!
why?!?!? :-( I never miss George or Lexie... their death doesn't mean nothing to me...
But Mark, oh God...it's so hard, so sad said goodbye to him!
I know i'm really going to miss him with sofia, him with callie, him with derek and Jackson...
He was that put a little laugh on my face every time he do something!
Rip Sloan, rip MacSteamy
That episode was worth the wait, all the emotion, love Bailey's new nick-name BCB. Sad to see Mark die, and Arizona man losing her leg wow, honestly didn't see that coming.
Looking forward to next week.
It sucks that Shonda didn't know about Eric Dane leaving until after Lexie was dead, or she could've given them a happy ending together instead of killing them both :'(
I didn't think it was awful. It wasn't the best season premiere but Grey's has been way past its prime for awhile now. Nonetheless, I thought it was solid and most DEFINITELY emotional! I was boo'hooing like a freakin baby the whole time. (thanks Shonda...sheesh). Anyway, I think they are going to give Lexie a proper send off next episode; it was just too much to stuff into one episode. I like the way they sent him off though, I guess they learned from how the sent off George that they did it nicely this time. SMH. Lastly, I thought that while this episode was solid and decent, it was lacking something for me...I'm not sure what it is. BTW, Booty Call Bailey was HYSTERICAL but I miss Nazi Bailey. Bring her back! Meredith is kicking ass too!!!! I'm excited for this season to see how things unfold!!
