Perfect season ending show ... it was pretty high drama. I am very happy that Castle finally told Kate he loved her eye to eye & even though he had to divulge the secret he had been keeping, Kate had to find out for herself. I find the continued storyline with Kate's Mothers' murder very interesting because it is slowly unfolding & now the ante has been upped.
Loved the way Kate & Castle got together at the very end - very tastefully done - no one was ripping clothes off of each other ... the statement "less is still more" still remains true today ... we all know where things were headed when they held hands & walked away. Kudo's to all in front of & behind the camera's ... looking forward to the new season!
Part 2 - by suggesting he pick a decade & go from there. I wish the writers would have written for Cristina to say something like, I wonder how Dr. Mark Craig from St. Eligius Hospital would have done this procedure, what do you think?â€ That would have been THE highlight statement/question of the entire season. But I get the reference towards M.A.S.H. & he was on St. Elsewhere.
I wish Shonda could get William Daniels to be a guest star in a few episodes next year. He could teach them ALL a thing or two or three .... And bring on Owen & Cristina next week ... woo-hoo!!
The BEST part of last night's show for me was seeing William Daniels again & this time playing opposite Sandra Oh. This was an "old school vs. new" showdown with the background music being terrific & they were absolutely flawless â€“ they stared each other down.
I watched St. Elsewhere back in the day & when William Daniels portrayed Dr. Mark Craig, he was just as arrogant, if not more so, in his role as a heart surgeon, as Cristina Yang is! I find it interesting that they are doctors who work on hearts & in each of these two one has to literally use a stethoscope to hear if one is beating in each of them.
When he told Cristina she was awfully sure of herself & questioned her hostility she became quite defensive. When she admitted that she was not okay with the open procedure & lost her normal cool manner & referred to the era of "Hawkeye & BJ doing it on M.A.S.H." did I laugh & I saw him smile just a bit. She challenged him right back by suggesting he pick a decade & go from there. I wish the writers would have written for Cristina to say something like, I wonder how Dr. Mark Craig from St. Eligius Hospital would have done this procedure, what do you think?â€ That would have been THE highlight statement/question of the entire season. And bring on Owen & Cristina next week! woo-hoo!!!
1 - Yes - what Cristina had to say to Meredith on the other side of the door was very grown-up & profound for Cristina & Meredith needs to keep her big mouth shut & let Cristina do a whole lot of soul searching & come up with her own decision. So many people do not like Owen - not sure why that is - would like to hear what it is about this guy you all don't like.
2 - Did not like the Catherine/Richard hook-up at all. Interesting that his wedding ring was prominent not once but twice & he ignored it not once but twice. He isn't any stronger than that? And I really did not like that Richard answered the door & Jackson was on the other side - he is supposed to be looking up to Richard not thinking he hooked up with his Mother ... just sayin' ....
3 - Not hot
4 - Cristina fails
5 - Sandra Oh stays
Not sure where or why I have gotten the feeling that it will be either Kevin McKidd or Sandra Oh that leaves GA ... one of them ... no happy ending for this fabulous couple & I hope I am very, very wrong.
I think we may be in for more than just a surprise with Cristina failing the boards. I am going out on a limb thinking that Sandra Oh may be the cast member not returning for Season 9 but I will be very happy to be wrong! Loved how she & Owen broke the ice & were talking with each other, not at each other. There was definite growth on both of their parts & I was thrilled that Owen finally put Teddy in her place. Enough of the power struggle with Cristina & I loved the line that she was never to bring his wife up again. And yes, that appeared to be Jackson & April having sex in the promo! And a double wow when she punches some guy in the face!!! wow - lol
Sorry - not everything came over the first time - :-(
2 â€“ I think Avery will fail the boards
3 - No - once the Chief always the Chief - everyone thinks being the top dog is so much fun. Derek found out that is not the case. Still loved Mark as Chief for a Day - he's terrific & is totally underused on this show & I would like for Mark
4 - Yes - BETTER WRITING for these two could really accomplish how much two people can stare down the barrel of adversity & come out 200% better than when they originally started out - not sure that will happen. I'd rather have them divorce now, as to attempt to bring them back to try to reconcile only to find it won't work later. Sometimes no matter how much two people are in love with each other, sometimes they just can't & don't make it. Love is never enough.
5 - Pretty obvious - Owen & Cristina - they have been my favorite couple since he came on the show 4 years ago.
1 - Cristina uncontrollably crying in bed & Owen getting in bed lying next to her holding her & trying to comfort her. This is just my one woman's opinion. I think Shonda missed the boat on this one. Shonda is into shocking us. She would have given us all heart failure if she had the one person that not a one of us would have ever dreamed in a million years would cheat - Cristina Yang. The set up for it was perfect â€“ the hospital shooting with the shooter holding the gun to her head when operating on Derek & then after it she was not being able to depend upon Owen to help her through her PTSD (which he barely did.) Shonda could have done so much with a jaw dropping twist but she went for the same ol', same ol ... donâ€™t understand why it is that she usually goes after the guy to be the cheater â€“ Richard, Derek, Mark & now Owen ... if one really must do a cheating story, at least make us not see it coming. Just sayinâ€™ â€¦.
2 â€“ I think Avery will fail the boards
We all have our favorite couples. Cristina & Owen is mine & they have been since the day he arrived at Seattle Grace. From the moment their eyes met he couldnâ€™t stay away from her & vice versa. Their first kiss seemed to happen within an hour after meeting & he proceeded to sweep her off her feet.
I am barely over this past Thursday's episode & I am happy to have a few days before this week's show which appears to be even more sad & brutal. Some marriages can & do survive infidelity & in other marriages it proves to be too costly. I still believe that passion & love drives them. Keep the faith every one. In my opinion we are watching a really great love story being told by these two fabulous actors & I hope they make it.
Hopefully next up! Mark & Lexie. I so like them together. He is still in love with her. He "digs & understands her" & she has never stopped loving him & I am not quite sure why she doesn't tell him! I suppose one power couple at a time on this show!
