Patrick Dempsey has been in Derek Shepard's skin for 11 years. In TV land that's a LONG time. These are creative people. They thrive on change. Face it, even Shonda is tired of them, as this is the first episode she has actually written since the plane crash finale. I am not surprised that despite the contract, he was tired. I think the deaths on this show have been excessive and Mark, Lexie, and George might have met different fates than death, as Cristina did. And didn't Izzy, Teddy, and Burke just sort of fade away? I would like to credit here, some amazing work by Savannah Paige Rae as the other uninjured accident victim. Fresh off Parenthood, I thought she was terrific! There were some inconsistencies that detracted from this show. NO VEHICLES came by in all the time they were out there? Yet just as Derek pulls a bonehead move a semi appears on that windy road? AND no one has cell service, but Derek's cell makes noise at the most inopportune moment? And, yeah, Meredith drags the kids to the hospital...does not call anyone? Alex, Webber, Amelia? Any one of them would have been there for her and the kids. Just didn't ring true...maybe it's setting up something else, but just wasn't how they usually operate.
I loved the simultaneous "one-sided" conversation between Jo and Stephanie in the hall on the gurney!
HATE that Max calls Brennan "Tempy!"
Really? Can you be sure of that?
Too many ahead of Kensi Blye!!
Just an awesome episode!
Joe Spano is awesome!
Bishop arrived at NCIS already married, so her relationship can hardly be compared to other characters. I'm okay with Zoe, though I am not convinced it is going to work out...not if "someone else" was the love of his life. I'm with Christine...stay or go...either or. There was something about the Tony/Ziva chemistry that was special. I think Joe Spano is one of the most talented character actors on TV...loved him on Hill Street Blues and was thrilled to see him on NCIS. And, yes, my heart broke for Tobias.
I, too, noticed the McCoy connection. Don't like the guy anyhow, but what he did was despicable and then being dishonest with her about it compounded it. I do wish Erin would find somebody to share her life with. Liked that the episode was not as Danny-centric as usual. Henry's reaction was over the top sensitive. Love the way Baker plays her part!!
Agree with Castle, both NCIS shows, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, and Bones, but Hawaii Five-O? The acting is awful...esp Scott Caan. I have tried several times to watch and just can't. I think NCIS, NO proves you can stretch a concept too far...Scott Bakula is good, but LaSalle has an awful accent and the woman who plays Brodie is too old for the part!
