A very good double-episode. I loved the sinkhole story line. It was good to finally have a natural disaster episode.
Derek was somewhat irritating, but it's okay. He'll get by.
I was a little taken by for what Bailey was feeling towards Meredith and the hate she was displaying towards her. Other than that, I am glad she got the trial.
The chief was very noble this episode. As much as it sucks that I know he's not gonna be the chief anymore (I'm gonna find it hard to get used to another chief.)
Alex is finally redeemed. Him trying to fix what he broke with Meredith the entire episode was nice to watch, but what was better was that it paid off.
The 2 hours for this episode was time well spent.
I absolutely love this human being.
She is above and beyond. Katherine Heigl (with all respect to Izzie) took the fame and ran away. Ellen could start making movies, other series, etc.. But no, she decides to stay on the show that gave her the fame because she'd never turn her nose up on Grey's Anatomy. That's a noble woman right there.
I'll always watch Grey's Anatomy, no matter when and who is acting. It's just that good.
After watching this promo, my fire for Grey's Anatomy got put right back on. I can't wait.
Meredith fired? Did not see that one coming at all.
I love how Arizona comes right out with it to Alex.
The Cristina and Alex fight, what the hell is that about?
My dear Grey's Anatomy peeps, it looks like we are in for a very very intense premiere this September.
April: What do you mean a "kiss" got me pregnant?!
Izzie: I can't believe he just showed me this!
Cristina: A review of "Killers", Alex, seriously?
Let's all remember that we never cared about these actors, but Shonda and the writers made us care about them. So whoever stays or goes, the series will keep it up until it ends.
Criminal Minds will absolutely not be the same without both ladies.
Let's be honest, removing AJ Cook from the cast was a huge mistake for the writers. Now, if they want to do the same to Emily, that would put the show's ratings at jeopardy.
Criminal Minds has managed to always shock me in millions of ways that I never could have been. It is also one of my favorite shows. Please, for your sake and ours, keep Emily and bring back AJ Cook.
This is all based on the first half of the season.
Episodes from the second half are not included.
Best Episode: Adrift and at Peace. Finally, we got an episode where everything going on actually matters. The tension in the OR was great. Callie slamming the door in Arizona's face was a high for me.
Worst Episode: I have to agree with you TV Fanatic. These Arms of Mine was not dreadful, but it was not any good either. Grey's Anatomy, you already are awesome so you don't need to try that hard to change.
Best Character: Lexie Grey. She has been amazing and has never let me down.
Least-Utilized Character: Meredith Grey. For years, we have enjoyed Meredith and her never ending problems. This season, Shonda had a huge shot at making an interesting storyline out of Meredith's abortion. Instead, she decided to go with the never ending PTSD. I love Cristina, don't get me wrong. But not this one. Anyway, she's back to her old self, which is good for me and the show.
Most Compelling Relationship: Callie and Arizona. This was the most relationship that was given material in this half of the season. All of the other relationships were not given enough focus or attention, specially the one between Meredith and Derek.
Most Pleasant Surprise: Well, I guess many things might have been predictable, but seriously, who would have predicted that Callie and Mark would actually sleep together? No one? Ok, point proved.
Favorite BFFs: Mark and Callie. They are always there for each other. Meanwhile, I didn't feel Meredith was there enough for Cristina. She should have been the one helping her heal, not Derek.
Best Shonda Idea: Well, to be honest, in the first half there were no good ideas. So I guess I just have to cheat and say Callie's pregnancy. And another smart idea was that Cristina would end up operating on the shooter.
Worst Shonda Idea: Having Cristina be the one to undergo the PTSD. I mean sure, she made a point that anyone can have a PTSD, but she can't just remove one of the reason most people watch Grey's Anatomy. I mean robot Cristina is what keeps a lot of people hooked. Anyway, I'm glad she's back again.
Quote of the season: Well to be honest, I found no interesting quotes said this season. But of course, I still do enjoy the Meredeth voice-overs.
Hopes for 2011: We were promised for closure with the Alex\Izzy situation. I honestly hope they would bring her back, because I think that is the only way it could work. And since you are going to go along with a musical episode, please do not ruin the reputation of the show along with it. A disaster episode like the ones from Seasons 2,3, and 4. The bomb episode. The fairy boat episode. The ambulance crash. Give more screen time for Meredeth and Lexie. Make Shonda forget about Private Practice and her new show Off the Map, as if she needed any more distractions.
