I didn't like the music either. The two songs I heard..."All About That Base" and another I don't remember the name of...do not sound the same at all when they're sung by someone else to a different beat. Plus, I fail to see how they were relevant to the show. If they're going to pick covers, the least they could do is pick *good* ones.
I know it might not be appropriate in real life, but I like how Callie told the teenager about her own sexuality. I'll bet that girl was relieved to hear that someone understood. Remember, her father disowned her at first, and her mother never really did warm up to the idea. Frankly, I was surprised when Maggie slugged that woman but I was glad she did. I would have thought it would have been Callie, but we're seeing a whole new side of Maggie and I like her.
I think they're probably going to have more "Remembering Derek" moments as the season goes on. After all, this *was* only the first episode of the season. There are the kids, Amelia and the rest of his colleagues to think about...one of *them* might have a despondent moment, especially if they're doing a procedure Derek would have known more about than they do. Just a thought.
We also met Alex's younger brother Aaron several seasons back, around the time Izzie left. He was there getting a hernia operated on and told everyone about how their mother and sister both had schizophrenia and that Alex had basically taken care of them when they weren't being shuttled off into foster care. I liked how Alex told about how he was bullied as a kid. I kind of got the idea he had been bullied by his reaction (or non-reaction) when Callie said he was a bully now. And I could have told Maggie's bullying story...I had frizzy hair and a lisp and got picked on mercilessly because of it.
OMG yes...he's beautiful. Just let him keep his accent this time! Kevin McKidd ("Owen") is actually Scottish but you wouldn't know from Grey's...so let Dan keep his British accent! I'm not sure what he's been up to since ER ended, but Goran Visnjic ("Luka Kovach") and his gorgeous Croatian self would *definitely* work for me! Accent!
I hear you on the male docs, although that intern that showed up late in the previous episodes was pretty hot. :)
Person=best friend, confidante, other half etc. It started early on (season 1? 2?) when Cristina told Meredith she put her down as her emergency contact person when she had to fill out a form. It's gone through pretty much the whole series since then...Cristina and Meredith were inseparable, sometimes closer to each other than their respective boyfriends/husbands.
...which could happen to anyone. That much stress on a relationship coupled with the fact that one of them was and is away for so long and is totally different from how they were went they left...I hope things work out for them, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Is it possible that this might actually be the series finale? Did Shonda say there's going to be another season? I'm not sure how, since McDreamy and their relationship was one of the biggest parts of the show. Anyway, I can understand somewhat what Jackson is thinking. I dated an Air Force ROTC guy in college...there were a lot of reasons I didn't want to marry him, but I definitely wouldn't have been able to be a military wife, being away from my husband for so long. That's basically what Jackson was, a military husband. Some people can take it, some can't. That's not a bad thing, it just is.
Yes, Booth's logic is convoluted, but that's how it happens for a lot of people when they consider the death penalty. The law enforcement officer/soldier in him might say one thing while the Catholic/father in him might say another. A lot of Christians have this train of thought..trying to balance what we've seen in the world with what we've been taught growing up. Given the things he's seen and the cases he's worked, it's understandable that he might feel torn, especially if the wrongly-convicted prisoner isn't sure life is worth living. It's one of those things that isn't as black and white for some as it might be for others, so I think it's accurate and completely within character to show Booth's thoughts this way.
