Uhmm. A lot of people bring in unknown people to their lives at one point. It's called "dating"?
@ Andrew Jenkins I think that the promise your talking about was the one made for Private Practice and not Grey's Anatomy. It was preluded that Grey's would be a silent and emotional finale while PP would also be quiet but have those last 30 seconds.
I don't know if I want Grey's to continue without Meredith and Derek but I do know that the writers can be trusted to continue to deliver good stories. The only thing here is whether or not it will still be the Grey's that we know.
From all of the above mentioned points, I just have to say that if season eight is the last, then Mark and Lexie better end up together already.
@Axel And that's why I'm suggesting that she does it by herself first. Obviously it's not really something that Sam wants so why not let her have a child on her own? And if in the end it's something that Connor wants, then I hope they end up together. What's more appealing about Connor is that there's no history there. He's a fresh start for Addison.
@lynn I think a lot of us see Violet as selfish because she's running away to please herself. She could be helping the practice, or at the very least, helping her husband, yet she's going to leave because in the duration of the fews days that her license was suspended, she already doesn't feel like herself.
I liked the finale enough but it wasn't as intense as I thought it'd be. Those last 30 seconds were shocking but the scene wasn't as bad or as game changing as I thought it would be.
First off, I'm happy that Naomi got her happy ending. I think that it's good that a character is written off receiving the happy ending instead of dying or something of that sort. I liked everything that happened with Naomi because it showed a lot of maturity and consequently they brought in a person's need to allow herself happiness. What I also liked about this story was how we saw Addison and Naomi be the friends that they started out to be. It would've been a shame if Naomi left with them on bad terms so seeing Addison be there to let her cry and all their scenes in the airport was really endearing to watch. I also credit Sam for technically forcing her to allow herself to be happy.
I agree that Violet's character has gotten more selfish as the season came to a close. I think it all started with that book and I'm not even sure if that was the intention of the writers when this book idea came to mind. I get the point of the book tour and why she felt the need to go on it now. Fine, her medical license got suspended and she identifies herself with her work and having the ability to help people. But the timing of her going now? Now when the entire practice is in jeopardy? She should be there to help the practice to figure things out because she's still a part of it and at the same time support Pete. Wouldn't it have been possible to wait until things became better, at least for her husband's professional status? She also gives an entire speech about how she doesn't do ultimatums but she practicaly served one to Pete by saying "I'm going". That whole "Let's just be silent" thing was pretty much a way to shut up Pete so she can say what she wanted and dismissing anything else he had to say. So yeah, Violet's pretty damn selfish. And let's see how she reacts to Pete's heart attack. Admittedly she couldn't have predicted something like that happening but this will obviously pull a strain in their relationship next season if it isn't already destroyed.
Charlotte and Cooper were once again great in this episode. I'm so glad that they ended this way after the dramatic story that they've had through the season. I think their scenes, although they were limited, showed a lot about the development that they've been through as a couple. They really showed how they support each other personally and professionally. It was nice to see how they pushed each other to do what they had a difficult time doing for the benefit of their patients. Charlotte stating those words from the meeting were also endearing because it was about how the other needs to know that they did what they could and that was enough. I look forward to everything about Charlotte and Cooper next season. They're the best couple on the show and Charlotte's my favorite character. The way she dealt with that patient, it wasn't just about saying that to her, it was about sending a message to every survivor. It was great.
And of course, there's Addison. I loved the chemistry between her and Connor from the beginning. I'm rooting for the two of them in the end because I really don't support Addison and Sam's relationship. I understand that she loves him but I'm going to quote something from another show which is "The future is scary. But you can't just ran back to the past because it's familiar. Yes, it's tempting. But it's a mistake." (HIMYM) Addison deserves to be with someone better than Sam; someone who wants the same things as she does. I mean, what does she expect, two live a double life? One where she has a baby and one where she has Sam? She says they're not mutually exclusive situations but who are they really going to collide when it's not something that Sam wants? Honestly, what I want for Addison is to just do it by herself. I think it would be a great story to show her having a child on her own because a lot of women do that now. She doesn't need a man. And in the future, then I'm hoping she ends up with Connor. He'll obviously be back next season and I think he's a good new beginning from Addison and someone she can really be with until the end.
This is the season of Delena. I feel it. And I have hope!
I hope they come back!! Even just for a few episodes. I don't think OTH can end without them.
I'm definitely gonna start watching this. I love Brit Robinson on Life Unexpected so I'm sure I'll love her here too. This seems like it'll be really interesting!
I didn't really enjoy this season of Gossip Girl. Admittedly there were some really good arcs that happened but at the same time there were some that were off base. And I agree that this season lacked something that previous seasons had.
One thing that I don't want to see next season is another Serena vs Blair fight over attention. I feel like they throw this into an arc when they need to fill it in but they have done this over and over again. If these two are really friends, get over this need to outshine the other. It was good that it seemed like they were joking about it towards the end of the finale and I hope it stays that way.
Another, make better use of Nate. He was the most underused character throughout the entire season. Basically, he was just the boy toy of the girls that were in it to bring some form of trouble to an arc (i.e. Juliet and Raina). His entire arc regarding his dad was boring and he just seemed to be a prop this season. Terrible waste of a good character.
I think what this season did relatively well was to highlight Blair's need to be powerful but I don't think they ended that story too well. I mean, we're talking about the person who wanted to be editor in chief of a magazine in a span of a few months and instead she's going to settle to marry a prince and become a princess? If she wasn't going to become successful through her own work and merit, then she should've just been with Chuck.
And Serena. Oh Serena. This character went terribly wrong this season and the foreshadowing of what she might be in the next doesn't look any better. Please, do something more rational and logical with her for season five.
So happy for Brittani!! I've been rooting for her since the beginning and she deserves it. She's been great throughout the entire season and she proved in the finale why she deserved to win.
I hate that the CW canceled this show because it's a really good one! I thought the finale was good because it focused a lot on the importance of family and at the same time showing it isn't about the titles but performing the art.
The only benefit I can give of this show ending is that we won't have to see Dierdre again. I like the storyline that happened here but I couldn't enjoy it as much because it was AJ playing. The girl can barely act ruining the substance of the scenes she was in.
Still. CW SHOULDN'T HAVE CANCELED THIS.
