@rebeca - Sorry, I meant WHERE did you hear that?
I agree it's Adele - she's fairly beloved, Shonda's been phasing her out, and she has a major illness. And frankly, Shonda can't afford to kill off any more integral character, unless she wants an uprising, not to mention losing even more fans. Honestly, it would be nice if she put half as much effort into Grey's as she is into that stupid Scandal show these days.
And while I applaud the idea of killing off Izzy in a rather painful manner, it's not gonna be her because that would not only be a horrible, disconnected storyline, it would involve bringing her back to the show.
rebeca - why did you hear that Christina could be joining another show next year? If that rumor is at ALL valid, it's a terrifying thought!!!
By the way, best quote - "Because when I said I didn't want children, I really meant I want ALL the children!!" - Charlotte
Has it actually been confirmed that the show is ending? Or is everyone just assuming it is since Addie is leaving at the end of this season? (Hopefully to go back to Greys!)
Honestly, I have mixed feelings about it continuing without her anyways....just haven't heard anything official yet. Did I miss it?
To make me think her and Shonda were fighting or something. I mean she gives Mark a two episode arc and posts a eulogy for him and Lexie gets nothing in comparison. Was really necessary to have her frickin body EATEN?? The huge discrepancy in the treatment of the characters is appalling.
SR needs to stop obsessing over Scandal and start giving the show that made her name the attention and thought it deserves.
I can let the lack of detail about the reaction at SGMW and how Exactly Mark died (internal massive injuries I assume) and the other small things go.
What PISSES me off is lack of acknowlege and closure for Lexie and Mark. All they get is five minutes in the finale and then two one minute shout-outs? They need some kind of spiritual reunion scene - like at a joint funeral scene. I'm not saying full out ghostly action but just something like the elevator scene with Izzie and George. Confirmation for the fans that they are actually together and happy.
AND where is the grief and the send off for Lexie??? Her death has been seriously ignored in comparison to Marks - not that he didn't deserve such a send off. That's the point - when such an integral character dies it should be a big deal. It's just been 'Lexi's dead, too late for her amd Mark, oh well, and btw her body was fought over by wild animals.'
It's enough of a lack of respect to her character to make me think her and Shonda were fighting. I mean SR gives Mark a huge tearful send off over two episodes AND writes him a frickin eulogy, but does absolutely nothing for Lexie. WHAT THE H*LL????
While the idea of new characters is distressing because they could pull the main storyline away from the Regulars, but keep a few things in mind.
One, the storyline made this necessary. Three of the six attendings - Mark, Der, AZ - will be recovering for quite awhile from the injuries caused by the crash. And Teddy has moved on. The hospital will have to bring in at least temporary help to get through it.
Two, that doesn't mean they are staying. Casting for one or two or three episodes is not the same as casting new regulars. These newbies could be just for potential story arcs in the aftermath of the crash, and then leave. Nothing about them being REGULARS has been confirmed.
Three, it's always hard to welcome new characters, especially after losing old. But if the show didn't do that, it would never have Mark, Callie, AZ, Owen, etc. And would never have had Lexie or Teddy in the first place.
I can't believe I didn't know there was Sherlock page on TV-Fanatic until this moment!!!!!
All the theories are really interesting, but I can only speculate so far. One, I think Moriarty is going to be actually dead and stay that way. But this gives a great opening for Moran to come in, just like in the books. As for how, Sherlock lived, I have no idea, but am sure it will be genius.
More interesting to me, is how they are gonna reunite Watson and Sherlock. In the books, he sneaks in as a shabby homeless person, whips off his disguise, and Watson faints. Personally, I always thought that was a bit off. Wouldn't anger be the more natural reaction? I am really curious to see how the writers work that. That for me is the best thing about the show, is how true they are to books, while being modernized. Way better than the American movies.
@deeg Could not agree more - no one else needs to die!!! Got that Shonda?! Seriously? SERIOUSLY!!
There was a rumor of Teddy getting her own show, which I think could be cool. They could do it around her new position in the Army. It could be like MASH meets Grey's, and come in just a Practice is finishing out. And then Teddy can pop back in for cross-overs, like Addy did for so long.
But Lexie? Let's just say I am still mourning George, so it's safe to say I'm still upset about that. : (
@smileyglen Thank you!!!
And on another page on here there was someone who said they thought Derek should die. I understand that there most people have a character they can't stand (for me Izzy), but the show has been based off Mer and Der since the first scene of the first episode. He's not going anywhere. So again, why are you watching the show? Or on a site looking up spoilers?
Sorry for going into full blown rant mode, but its a pet peeve of mine.
