Grey's Anatomy Review: Can I Get Some Help Here?

by at . Comments

This was one of those Grey's Anatomy episodes that viewers will either love or hate. They will love the fact that it focused on the heart of this series: Yang and Grey. They will hate that the other main characters were pretty much MIA and the majority of the other individuals featured were new. Where do you fall in this debate?

Let’s discuss "Beautiful Doom."

Hi! Over Here!

I adored the hour. It focused on the two characters that are most beloved. Those who have been watching Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning feel a connection to these women. Nothing was proven more in this episode that these girls have grown up in a major way, but they both need help from time to time.

Goodbye Minnesota. The writers took a major chance on sending Cristina to another hospital. How was this going to work? Was it going to work? Turns out it did.

Yang developed quite the friendship with Dr. Thomas and the events here were a shock. She was able to learn from this man in a way she hasn’t learned since Dr. Burke. There had to be a reason to send Yang back to Seattle. Who would have guessed that her Clinic BFF would drop dead in the OR? Shonda... you did it again. I know I wasn’t the only one who teared up when Mr. Feeny died. William Daniels, you were a great addition to the show. Who knows, maybe he is heading back to his old stomping grounds.

The death of her dinosaur friend sent Yang back to Meredith. Is she here to stay? I’m guessing yes - and couldn’t be more happy!

This Isn’t Lexie. Meredith struggled with a case that resembled the same trauma Lexie endured in the woods. Did it hit a little close to home? Absolutely. It needed to. There has hardly been any mention of Little Grey this season. Let’s not forget that she was Mer’s sister, Jackson’s girlfriend and a co-worker and friend to everyone else.

Mer rocked it as a successful mother who needed a little help. Zola got passed around through the doctors, but Grey was able to save her patient. She even finished up with a 30-second dance party. Awesome.

3 New Faces

Grown Ups. These characters have made some serious strides since they started out at Seattle Grace. Watching Meredith get her daughter ready for day care, remembering the fish sticks for multi-cultural day, all while potty training Zola and saving a woman? It has never been more obvious that she is no longer dark and twisty. I can’t say that I don’t miss the train wreck she used to be, but Grey is all grown up. Yang too - she’s more evolved, caring, compassionate. Love it.

The switching back and forth and split screens of the two BFFs were a little much at times, but it worked. Grey’s Anatomy continues to find ways to hook its viewers back in when things haven’t been completely up to par. 

Overall, a great episode. We lost a new friend but Seattle gained back an old one. Spending so much time on these characters led to some hilarious one liners that you can check out on the Grey’s Anatomy quotes page. Hit up the comments section and let us know what you thought of “Beautiful Doom.”

Did you enjoy the focus on the BFFs or did you miss the rest of the SGH crew? Check back later in the for the . Until next time, TV Fanatics.

Cristina can teach all intern in SGMW as long as you dare to sleep with your boss or Cheif of surgeon, then you will get the benifit and you can do whatever you want

As much as I loved this episode, the last 10 seconds COMPLETELY ruined it. Honestly, wasn't this episode meant to allow Meredith to come to terms with Lexie's death? Her lack of emotion to "Lexie's Dead", while hugging Cristina was just completely distasteful and did not add up to what Shonda had promised. Ewuck, typical Shonda.
As for Dr. Thomas, I foresaw his death coming once him and Cristina began to bond. I'm not sure if she'll be back at SGMWH next episode, but if she hasn't quit where she is now, I guarantee she'll be back by midseason.

So glad Yang is back in Seattle, but its bittersweet because I so loved Mr. Feeny. It really was a double sucker punch, too, for him to keel over just after she called him "pops". But I am beyond glad that she is away from that slimeball. Still wish we could have seen something more of Meredith's acceptance of Lexie's death. We have heard barely anything at all about Lexie, but I swear I'm gonna start a drinking game that calls for a shot everytime Callie mentions Mark. So so annoying.

Can I just say Owen made a mistake he cheated once!!
She's being a hypocrite! She has sleep with that guy numerous times and everything else!
She has done far worse than Owen.

Um. Lexie wasn't Jackson's girlfriend and hadn't been for a long while.

Overall I think it was a great episode. Sorry to see Thomas go but oh so happy to see the back of Harper. He was creepy, plus Cristina needs to be with Owen. Love the title Queen of Mean but would like to see more Medusa and please Shonda, bring back the Nazi! Bailey has been turned into a caricature of her old self. She can be happy with Ben but does she have to be simple now?

I can't move. I need to move but I can't. I think I may be frozen to this spot.

Somethings are simply out of your control. You can't change them, you can't bend them to your will.
