Grey's Anatomy Review: Ready or Not

by at .

This week's penultimate episode of Grey’s Anatomy hit the ground running to kick off a two-part finale with "Readiness Is All."

Born and raised in Oklahoma and now living in Texas, I’ve experienced my fair share of massive weather disasters. From the craziest of storms, tornadoes and even hurricanes, I'm very familiar with preparing for Mother Nature – or at least trying to anyway.

No amount of preparation can ever be enough. I’m sure we’ll soon see that even with overstocking hospital supplies, getting ready for double capacity, having hardcopies of charts ready and much more... it all won’t be enough. It’s going to be CRAZY next week.

So, what went down on the first episode of the two-part finale?

Well, we picked up right where we left off last week with Alex comforting a battered Jo. Alex brought in Jason, who was severely beaten up. I felt like it was a little too obvious that we were supposed to believe that Alex was responsible... and then it felt a bit too predictable that it was Jo all along.

I’ve been feverishly waiting for Jalex to happen, but I’m not so sure I’m digging how they’re coming together now. At least he finally basically admitted he loved her. By the way, do you agree with Alex’s blackmailing/threatening of Jason? Was Derek right in that Alex was entirely wrong for what he did?

Meanwhile, I can’t believe that Arizona went beyond flirting with Peyton Lauren. What’s going to happen to Calzona?!? Also, it doesn’t seem like Cristina and Owen are ready to come to terms with their situation. Owen clearly can’t let go of wanting to be a dad, and with Ethan gone now, I’m thinking he’s going to realize it’s all more than just a want. Is it only a matter of time for both of these couples?

As a huge fan of flash mob proposals, I thought that Matthew’s gesture was just so ridiculously made for April. And did you catch that look on Jackson's face? I’m rooting for Matthew while my gut feeling tells me that he’s just standing in Japril’s way.

Lastly, how scary was Meredith’s tumble down the stairs? I figured she’d be okay, but it was still kind of terrifying. Her water broke and hopefully all will be well with the McBaby.

Other Thoughts

  • I’m so glad that Webber totally called Bailey out on her stubbornness. Even more importantly, she’s finally heading back to the O.R.
  • Cristina yelling, “No! Mousey! No! Mousey!” was kind of hilarious. Side note: McDreamy is right. Brooks is very weird.
  • My favorite moments are still with just Alex, Cristina and Meredith. They’re always there for each other. This matters so much still.
  • There were many interesting medical cases this week, but I felt like all of the drama amongst the doctors took center stage. It was hard to care too much about anything else.
  • I actually didn’t realize this was the second-to-last episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 until tonight. This season seriously flew by!

If tonight’s installment was any indication of how adrenaline-rushing next week’s finale will be, I think it’s safe to believe that we’re in for yet another season finale to remember. I can’t wait!

So, what did you think, TV Fanatics? Hit the comments to share your predictions for next week’s season finale. Also, don’t forget to return early next week to chime in on our Grey’s Anatomy Round Table.

    There is a theory that I saw posted in re Calzona/Lauren that at first glance I was like "WHAT?" But after reading the evidence supporting the theory I was OMG this might be plausible. I base this on the nagging feeling that I was being played. That I was being led to believe one thing when all along it was something entirely different. If this goes down the way the theorist says it might then 1) the writers at Shondaland are made geniuses 2)serious apologies need to be rendered because some of these comments have been vile vicious attacks of a personal nature. Just saying....

    I *loved* Matthew's proposal!!! A lot of girls dream about something like that.

    And I was sooooo mad at Arizona, disappointed too. When Callie was saying, 'Where is Arizona?" I wanted to yell, 'she's cheating on you in the on-call room!" Some people wouldn't consider it cheating, but that's them. I suspect Callie won't be too happy when she finds out. And she will...

    Part II ... not sure ABC/Grey's Anatomy could get it by the FCC but if it is really not shown on tv (leaving the act itself to everyone's imagination)it's possible. When it comes to Shonda she pulls out all stops - she now must up the Grey's ante to equal Scandal & I think that's what she is about to do Thursday ... so get ready folks!!!

    @DaRon - no you are not the only one that thinks Alex & Cristina might become a couple. I just do not see Alex & Jo, but I don't see Alex & Cristina together either!! The second Cristina patted the mattress for Alex to sit on the bed with her a couple of episode's ago & they each confided in each other, all I thought was "ugh oh, next they will be having sex!" Maybe that is what happens at some point in this coming finale episode. I think Owen/Cristina will break up - Meredith should have kept her mouth SHUT to Cristina as to the conversation she had with Owen about adoption. That was a conversation Owen should be having with Cristina, not Meredith. She's always been the "trouble-maker" in that relationship. And how many are thinking that it is a possibility that when Callie sees Arizona & Lauren together, she either joins in or attacks both of them in total anger? We aren't that naive to think that threesome's really don't happen in the real world ... not sure ABC/Grey's Anatomy could get it by the FCC but if it is really not shown on tv (leaving the act itself to everyone's imagination)it's possible. When it comes to Shonda she pulls out all stops - she now must up the Grey's ante to equal Scandal & I think that's what she is about to do Thursday ... so get ready folks!!!

    Woops...last paragraph continuation...

    Since they announced her pregnancy, we've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like what are they going to do now to hurt this couple? Good drama does not need to stem from disaster. Every single season we have a plane crash, a madman shooting up the hospital, etc. Seriously for the most part we love this show but there comes a time when you have to take a stand. If something happens to this baby, we will stop watching this program. That will be tough though...

    There are so many comments I agree with: Arizona taking a plunge into the adultery pool. Honestly I too expected a kiss; but the all out conscious decision to knowingly hurt the woman who put up with her sorry a** for months of post amputation grief directed only at Callie who made the mistake of saving her life...no excuse. Where are all the PTSD comments coming from? Seriously a year later she will use that as her excuse? And yes I think Matthew will be history after the finale...how else can they reunite April and Jackson? Not my choice but they did keep focusing on the glances exchanged.

    Also are we the only people that DON'T like Owen? And don't like Owen with Cristina? And honestly why do they keep reuniting when it is clear that she does not want children and he desperately does? It is the reason for their breakup EVERY time and yet a few months later there they are, back together again.

    I want to mention how angry I will be if they harm Meredith and Derek's baby. Since Meredith announced her pregnancy, we've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like ok, what are they going to do now to hurt this couple? Good drama does not need to stem from disaster which is something Shondra Rhimes seems to enjoy. At the end of every single season we have a plane crash, a madman shooting up the hospital, etc. Seriously for the most part we love this show but there comes a time when you have to take a stand. If something happens to this baby, we will stop watching this program. That will be tough though...

    Very offensive to people who suffers of PTSD, try to justify infidelity with the desease. For me Arizona can join Owen and both get going out of the show.

    Hope Owen chooses the kid and both run to the sunset leaving Cris to someone else who values her and treat her the way she deserves and not as the blondes's sniffer does, cloves bared.

    Alex/JO?????????Afterall the woman is crazy or not?

    Best scenes: Cristina ,Mer, Alex

    Shitty season. What a pathetic season of romance with no romance.
