An absolutely great episode of Grey's! I think Wes was one of the best patient cases the show has ever had. If the words "I'll be with daddy in heaven" didn't make you cry, then I don't know what will.
Adele and Richard. Wow. Amazing. I will never listen to My Funny Valentine again without remembering this. I really liked the vulnerability we saw from the Chief and I'm hoping they continue to run with this arc.
And of course, Cristina and Owen. This was a long time coming and I'm glad it finally happened. I get where Owen's coming from but he knew this about Cristina. It's a messy situation all around so seeing how they navigate their way around it will be great too watch.
I think it would be so interesting to have Izzie brought back to the show. The question of where she would be in her life and how Alex could fit into that will be really great to watch. I think the writers have also had a tricky time pairing Alex with somebody so Izzie's return would make perfect sense in a way.
However, it might be easy to bring a character back but bringing the actor back is a different story. Surely it will take a lot of negotiations and discussions for Shonda and ABC to work out Heigl's return. She had a messy exit so a messy return can be expected. And as @Dexter Idolizer said, ABC is on their toes with the contract negotiations of the original cast which means their focus is most likely there.
Also @emy26, I'm not sure how the logistics of these shows go but I'm pretty Shonda doesn't hold the ultimate power to fire an actor. ABC has a bigger hand there. They were the ones who ultimately made the decision to let Isiah go. And TR left because he wanted to.
Really, really great episode! I loved how real the situation with Lily was; the debate preparations of Claire and Phil's "pervert" interjection, and of course Gloria reminding Stella all that she had to live for before jumping into the pool. Really great stuff :)
The reviewer said everything I was thinking. The show has been going downhill since season 2 and I honestly don't know how much longer I can wait for good storytelling to happen.
I really appreciated the character development that we saw in most of the characters in this episode. And I really liked how more or less, every storyline followed the episode's theme.
Props to Naomi because not only did she look great in every scene she was in but the way her character is developing is really great. I never really liked her with Austin so I'm just grateful that this character was a catalyst for her to change.
Liam and Annie need to get back together. And I know they will! It'll be interesting and fun to watch Annie take "Vanessa" down.
I'm glad that Navid's storyline is finally over and that he and Silver didn't get back together. I think Silver's new relationship is interesting because it's going to need a lot more maturity as compared to the other relationships we've seen. As for Maizy's role in all of this, I think it'll bring Adrianna's vulnerability more than ever before. That'll be great to watch too.
Over-all, great episode to start the year!
So glad the "Douchebag Jar" is back! Its return brought in one of the funniest episodes of the show. It was funny and refreshing. And I loved seeing Lizzy Caplan in it.
I just watched it and thought it was absolutely great! The characters are interesting, the songs are nice, the plot is different, and the entire world is just new. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of this show.
Exactly, @ Mary. I'm a Catholic myself and that isn't what the religion teaches. That whole thing just felt too forced. They really should've just used the miscarriage as a reason. In the beginning I thought that's why Blair was the way she is. But after that explanation (through the flashback), it kinda seemed like she didn't care so much anymore about the miscarriage.
Wow. I thought that was one of the worst Gossip Girl episodes ever. It isn't even about mocking Blair's religious epiphany of sorts but of how out of character it is for her. I just thought all of that was so forced. The flashbacks weren't all that great either. And the Chuck and Louis alliance was so hard to believe. Only parts I enjoyed were the Chair scenes, which I didn't enjoy as much as I usually enjoy the scenes between these two. I guess it's interesting that they bring in the real Charlotte Rhodes but I thought it was definitely too soon. They could've done a lot more with that eventually but it seemed a little rushed. Over-all it was just a bad episode. It wouldn't be hard for next week's to be better.
I think it's great that they're bringing this character back. I like it when there's continuity with their previous cases cause you get curious about what could've happened to that patient. It looks like it's going to be a pretty heavy episode this week!
