To be honest, I didn't like this episode. And I'm a big GA-fan. I defended the series and Shonda many times on messageboards, facebook, twitter. But I'm so disappointed about this finale! I think some mistakes were made with some characters, making them less "believable" for me.
- First of all, Christina is our highly intelligent control freak, who doesn't want a baby but got knocked up for the second time. Ever heard of birth control? I'm pretty sure she knows about those little pills that prevent her from being pregnant. And yes, of course, she works all the time, so she would probably forget a pill every now and then, but there are so many more options. You can even get a little chip in your arm preventing you from getting pregnant. In short: the very smart girl gets knocked up AGAIN?
- Second; Derek not taking up his phone. The man is now a father (and his dream came true the moment he became one), so if his wife calls him that many times, it is possible there's something wrong with his child. Meredith was never the kind of girl that would call him a hundred times just to ask him to "please come back" 'cause she loves him. Derek is a very smart man, he knows better.
- Thirth: Alex is angry again. And that's ok. But let him be an angry Alex that learned so much the past few years. Don't let him be angry like he was in the first season. He's much wiser now. Use it! (Alex telling Owen he should have been chief resident after spilling Merediths secret to him doesn't make sense)
- Fourth: The way they get rid of Lucy feels very forced to me. I know she will play a Charlie's Angel next season so she had to leave soon, but it feels very unreal this way.
"Forced" describes pretty much what I thought about the finale. It was a final episode so they had to add some drama and give this season a very open ending. This season was a lot about growth. People grew stronger, relations grew tighter. But in the last episode al the growth vanished just to create the season-finale-drama. It's hard for me to find the right words because my english isn't really good, but I hope you guys understand what I mean.
Finally, I would like to say there were also things I liked about the finale. Kevin McKidd is such an amazing actor. The Owen-Christina-scenes felt so true and so real. You could almost feel the love Owen already seemed to feel for his unborn baby.
I also loved the scenes of Meredith with little Zola. You could see the change in Mer the moment she took Zola home. She became a mom, teaming up with her baby, ready to fight for her and making Zola her first priority from that moment on.
Please remember; this is just my opinion, and I'm pretty sure most people will not agree with me. I'm a big Greys fan, and I will surely watch the next season. But this episode felt "weird" to me. ;)
Preview for next weeks finale shows Meredith losing both her job Ã¡nd Derek.
Oh come on. It was Derek that wanted to sneak Adele into the trial in the first place.
