Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't tonight the first we've heard about Kepner's love of Jesus? I figured there would be a hookup between her and Jackson, but hearing her talk about how she saved her virginity because of her faith seemed totally out of the blue to me because I don't remember it really being talked about before on the show. However, I really appreciate that every resident was set up to possibly fail the boards. Before I was convinced it would be Cristina or April, and now it really could be any one of them. Hopefully no to Morgan and Alex. He needs to focus on being a kickass surgeon and find someone like Arizona (but straight) to date.
I'm liking this show more and more each week. But I'm very interested to learn exactly what secrets everyone in the group has, because I'm kind of amazed that they all feel so indebted to Olivia. We have yet to see the VP, even though she's been mentioned. I wonder if she has anything to do with Amanda Tanner. So many questions, not enough time on television. Cyrus had some amazing monologues tonight...made me think of him less as Thatcher Grey!
This is definitely the most interestingly structured episode of television I've ever seen. Maybe I should watch more television. When Ginsburg started talking about being a Martian, my laughter dissolved into a stunned silence. It'll be interesting to see how they follow up next week...perhaps this marks a turning point in Season 5?
As I saw the residents interviewing at different hospitals, I realized I didn't want any of them to leave...except April. I'm not super attached to her character. I loved Cristina Yang getting a chance to be Cristina Yang. She was slightly awkward and completely arrogant - which is what I've always loved about her! Aside from Avery's major eye candy appeal, it would be great to see him stay and excel as a doctor, as I've always felt that his character shows incredible talent and ability only to have the writers show him screwing something up the next episode.
I love Owen Hunt. Kevin McKidd is doing a great job of portraying a man who's in love with Cristina Yang. Their scenes are the perfect mix of awkwardness/pain/love, so it'll be interesting to see whether they can ever get back to their marriage. And it's nice to see that Cristina is keeping their issues private and not letting it affect her professionalism. That's why I wasn't too upset with Own telling off Teddy. No matter what went down with Henry, Teddy made it VERY clear to Owen that she wanted nothing to do with him. I was pretty shocked that she all of a sudden approached him about Yang without feeling awkward about it...she really has no right to ask Owen for anything until she can at least apologize for her behavior towards him in the hospital. She may not be ready to be best friends with him again, but he is the Chief of Surgery and does deserve that respect as her superior.
I love Cyrus' character and what he did tonight. Olivia and Fitz are playing recklessly, and Cyrus is doing what he feels he needs to do to keep Fitz's presidency in tact. So I really liked that he played both of them, and let's be real...they're both capable of doing whatever needs to be done in order to reach their own endgames. With 4 episodes of the season left, I hope they give us some good background on the characters.
So glad you posted this! I've been waiting for something to come out ever since I heard it in the preview on Tuesday night.
Christina is so confusing to me. Her poor team before America's save was revealed...she spent so much time talking about Jesse Campbell that you could tell Lindsay, Chris, and Ashley were just wanting her to get on with it! And all of her crying and then Blake's out loud thinking...I wish they would start timing the judges' critiques so that Adam and Cee Lo don't have the credits running on them and their team when someone is being sent home that night.
Totally agreed! It was pretty evident that Quinn wasn't there at all (as a graduating senior) and now that I think about it, Rory and Sugar were nowhere to be seen either. I had no idea of who out of the cast was actually graduating until I saw the cover of the graduation soundtrack. This episode was better than I expected, but I think as some characters' stories come to a close at WMHS, it's easy to think back to how incredibly innovative and refreshing Glee used to be compared to what it is now.
And let's be real - most high school seniors have no idea what they "want to be when they grow up". There are 1,000 different avenues that any of those kids could take, so I was frustrated watching Will as an educator tell them to figure it out using Saturday Night Fever rather than encouraging them and guiding them along the way. A roundabout way to agree with the fact that Emma & co. should have been having these discussions with these kids long before now. It's frustrating to watch stuff like this come together in the span of an hour!
The next two episodes better be just as incredible as this one was. If they are, there will be a lot to talk about over the summer!
"Looking like that at age 46." Best round table answer ever!
