I am also thinking that Alexis is the real target & I am hoping Rick's father is not behind it as we really saw the dark side of Rick last night. Rick is a larger than life character all on his own, it will be interesting to see the family dynamics at play between Rick & his Father & hopefully that will include Martha - we don't see nearly enough of that character. And I noticed that Gates "looked the other way" when she saw Kate & Rick holding hands. I'm sure she has some idea that Rick & Kate are a couple & she is turning a blind eye a bit as she likes & respects both of them more than she lets on & we can't think she is that naive either. I could be wrong. Rick & Kate have been doing a really good job at shielding their relationship to anyone because they know what the consequences would be. Gates is too smart for that - she knows what she has in Kate Beckett & her team of men!! It has to be Kate that finds Alexis for Rick!
Next week's show is a two parter - I am wondering if it will, in the end, be Rick's father who has Alexis kidnapped - James Brolin is scheduled to guest appear on the show in the next couple of weeks - coincidence or social media related? We all remember how Rick warned Alexis about putting too much of herself online. Whatever precipitates her being taken, I just KNOW Rick is going to be more than out on the ledge & certainly can't blame him - this has to be every parent's nightmare. I have instructed both of my children to hold THEIR children's hands very tightly when they go out anywhere & we live in very small communities - doesn't matter. There are unstable people everywhere. Be as smart as ya' can ... Some posters say Rick isn't a very good dad - I think he is - he is funny with Alexis & then the next thing we see him being really serious & explaining to her why he feels she should do this or that. I think he is one cool & very smart dad .... GO CASTLE!!!
Part II - 3 - I am with reviewer Sean - I miss Mark alot & this episode would have been a great one with the one liners he would have coughed up if he went up against Jackson. I LOVE Alex but he gets too snarky with things like this. Alex is always in a much better place when he is with "his kids."
4 - My vote is for Matthew, the cute paramedic - while I love Jackson, he exhibited zero self-control & hopped into the back seat with Stephanie - now as far as I am concerned, he can stay there.
5 - And I STILL do not see ANY chemistry between Alex & Jo - now if the character of Lucy Fields was still on, we'd still be seeing fireworks fly!
1- Favorite scene - when Meredith tried reaching Cristina w/Cristina ignoring her beeper when she was with Owen - a far cry from when she reamed him a new one a couple of seasons back - where Owen talked her into ignoring Teddy's page when they were in an on-call room. Or did anyone take that as she didn't hear her pager go off? Either way, the page certainly was not a life or death situation as we already had that with the boy's emergency surgery.
2 - Yes, it was crazy, but crazy is where Shonda takes this show & these doctors. The best quote of the night because of what they did was Owen telling Cristina "you guys are killing me." That quote just might become true in some way - not killing Owen - maybe him being fired or stepping down even though we see Derek saying that to Owen this coming week.
3 - Instead of one doctors being the ambassador - how about a good group shot of them all - the original group of doctor's, w/Bailey, Richard & Owen -not the interns. I am with reviewer Sean - I miss Mark alot & this episode would have been a "Mark's dream" of an episode with the one liners he would have coughed up going up against Jackson. I LOVE Alex but he gets too snarky with things like this. Alex is always in a much better place when he is with "his kids."
4 - My vote is for Matthew, the cute paramedic - while I love Jackson, he exhibited zero self-control & hopped into the back seat with Stephanie - now as far as I am concerned, he can stay there - but I still really like him.
I.LOVE.THIS.SHOW! Who can keep up with who is stabbing whose back next? A few things here - Bobby & J.R. think more alike than we think - because who does Bobby go to every time he needs "help" with certain things? AND Sue Ellen warned John Ross about his Father & as usual the kid carelessly tossed that advice aside. John Ross is about to find out just by his actions that he awoke the sleeping giant in J.R. Watched the original show back in the day. John Ross is an idiot - he is so hell-bent on making J.R. pay for not being his father for all those years & he's so vengeful towards Alana & Christopher that he is making mistakes left & right. And just how terrific is Judith Light, as Ryland's Mother?? OMG, twisted isn't probably the only adjective that we will use to describe her.
LOVED this episode - saw a great & hilarious pairing of Callie & Richard - enjoyed seeing April w/her new paramedic boyfriend w/Jackson looking over his shoulder as he & Stephanie left the hospital! Enjoyed seeing all of the doc's/interns pulling for the same cause with the BEST one liner coming from Owen ... Cristina telling him "they did the right thing" & he said " I know, but you are all killing me." Both of them are right. And imo, the BEST scene of the episode was when Owen & Cristina were kissing & Meredith attempted to reach Cristina & her pager was tucked into her shoe with Cristina never reaching for it - she has learned it's not all about her. FUNNY last scene ... Richard walking into the elevator & as the doors closed, there was a mural of Derek - omg, did I laugh! Richard just looked at Derek's face & just stood there - didn't say a word & made no face at it either.
Part II - Sorry! I meant to say - there isn't anything I could DISAGREE with Ms. Morrison's review .... I agree with everything she said.
There isn't anything I can't agree with on Ms. Morrison's review - when Kate & the Senator's face were just inches apart & they each spoke slowly to each other made those scenes so dramatic. They both kept their cool. And HOW does Kate remain so in control when dealing with the Senator? I am thinking she sees the big picture & for now is slowly handing the Senator inch after inch of rope & when he hangs himself, all she will have to do is reel him in. I also love when Rick has the writer vest on - when I see it, I kind of laugh but I know he is serious & I take it that way. The thing with Kate & Rick's relationship, is it starts with their jobs & then goes deeper. He fully supports what she is doing & why she is doing it & now she allows him to. And now it will be interesting to see how Gates handles the fact of hearing Kate say the Senator is responsible for her Mother's death.
April needs to go with the cute & hunky paramedic. While I realize she was thrilled not to be pregnant, and as much as I REALLY like Jackson, he hopped into someone else's, well, back seat - April is deserving of someone who won't do that to her & will respect her. I give her two high 5's for walking away from Jackson. I really liked the Arizona/Owen storyline of the phantom limb syndrome - I liked Owen being with Grey's characters he normally has not been with & that he could help by using his Army skills. I think Bailey was WAY out of line with her snide comment to Derek - SHE didn't go through that plane crash, SHE doesn't have to sleep with the lights on & SHE can still operate. NO amount of money can take away all the pain that the ones who did go through it - one lost a sister & almost her husband, one lost a limb, one lost her husband & one little girl lost her Dad because of the crash. Bailey's on thin ice & I have ALWAYS loved Bailey!
I thought this was a great episode. Thankfully never having lost a limb, I find the phantom limb syndrome storyline intriguing & Jessica Capshaw has done a great, great job in portraying someone who has. I really liked seeing Owen helping Arizona. It's great to see Owen being "out of this box" too as I love seeing him as a dr. first, then Chief & liked him relying on his skills when he was in the Army. I have ALWAYS loved the character of Miranda Bailey .. but this season? Not as much. That she should be bitter rather than compassionate towards the very people she "raised" & to Derek, whom she has always had a special bond with? To begrudge people who were in a plane crash & survived & what about the two lives lost? So my question is - what's wrong with Bailey? And April didn't see this hunky paramedic coming! Yeah April - go get that cup of coffee, girl! She rocked last night.
