I'm just not a Rachel Taylor fan! I think it's her voice. But let's be real, I'll probably check it out for Dave Annable.
This episode was much better than last week's! Definitely on Team Karen...I tried really hard to like Ivy, but her limited interactions with Karen this week were so unnecessary! Like Tom said in the pilot, is it too much to expect people to be both talented AND kind? She was obviously insecure, and Karen was new to the game, but it made it hard for me to like Ivy's character (and her little friends) when she was so snippy towards Karen. I really did like Nick Jonas in his role, and I'd love to see more of him! Here's hoping next week Eileen catches a break!
Totally agreed on Blake...I always laugh out loud when he speaks!
So glad Addison had an elevator moment with Jake. He's obviously mature, a gentleman, and clearly wants the same things as she does. This is a no-brainer, and kudos for Addie saying she could get ready!
McDreamy and McSteamy were great tonight! So adorable, between Mark speaking Spanish to Sofia and Derek learning to do Zola's hair. Laughed out loud when Bailey called him out on it. I really expected to see proof at the end of the episode that Owen was cheating. I'm glad the issue wasn't resolved by the end of the episode, because it'll be a good storyline to take to the end of the season. I'd really love it if the show brought back Isaiah Washington to play Preston Burke again. Doubt it'll happen, but a girl can dream, right? I'll miss Grey's when it's on hiatus!
The performances at Regionals were a little mediocre in my opinion. I wasn't wowed or anything, and it was pretty obvious that New Directions would win. And then Quinn's car accident...such drama, and not good drama. So typical! I'm confused as to why phone calls couldn't be made...because in real life, THAT'S WHAT SOMEONE WOULD DO! I hope that they write her character out, not because I have some weird hatred of Quinn/Dianna, but because 1) it would be kinda refreshing if they managed to keep it a secretly that Dianna would be leaving the show, and 2) the way that truck hit her car, there's almost no chance a person would survive. At least make something in this show the least bit believable.
I rolled my eyes for most of this episode, mainly at Kurt. I really like Karofsky's character and I thought his suicide attempt was sad. However, every time they showed Kurt, I felt like the show was basically giving us Ryan Murphy in character form. And even though Quinn isn't high up on my list of favorite characters (and she expressed her opinion kinda insensitively), what really bothered me was when Kurt basically dismissed her pregnancy as though it wasn't traumatizing enough to ever warrant committing suicide. Bottom line is that you never know what might bring people to their breaking point: bullying, giving birth at the age of 16, dealing with the grief of losing someone you love. So preachy, but that really pushed my buttons when I watched the episode.
I don't think that they're writing Will off. Based on casting information, it seems like his two sisters are coming into town, and also his love interest from last season will be back. So while we may see less of him, it's more likely that we'll see different aspects of will outside the walls of a law firm or a courtroom. I also didn't realize when I first commented that the show would skip another week. So annoying. And also so annoying that last night's episode was delayed by 21 minutes.
I try to forget that it was a crossover, because I totally agree with J. I didn't care about any of your snoozefest storyline options...just Jaddison. They're really cute together, and it was so nice that not only did they admit to having a deeper connection, but that it wasn't followed up by a silly kiss or wild office sex. I know Shonda likes for her characters to have sex all the time, but Jake respectfully walking away after that simple conversation showed the audience and Addie that he's such a gentleman! He's really playing all of his cards correctly.
I really liked this episode, as it opened up a few questions for the rest of the season. Like I'm not exactly sure what was up between Dana/Cary/the other ASA whose name I always forget. I'm secretly hoping we see more of what's going on in the State's Attorney's office than we usually do, because I think their dynamics are really interesting. Definitely disliked that Cary seemed incredibly blah this week. Maybe it's because I fell in love with him when he played Logan Huntzberger on Gilmore Girls, but sometimes I feel like the show makes him act like he's battling depression or something. Really interested to see what's going on in the Kalinda tax case, as it may shed a little more light on what happened with her and Peter.
