Krista Vernoff Reflects on "Holidaze"

at .

Krista Vernoff, Grey's Anatomy executive producer and the head writer on last week's episode, "Holidaze" has posted some thoughts on the episode on the show's official writers' blog.

Below are excerpts, with a link at the bottom to the full entry ...


Can we talk about the hot hot hot HOT Owen Cristina kissing??? Oh my God, I’m like a fan girl, I can’t help it. And how about the scene where Owen whispered into Teddy’s mouth, “I’m in love with Cristina.” I wrote it. I pictured it. But when I saw it?

I seriously threw up a little in my mouth.

It was SO brutal – and what was so brutal is that Owen didn’t mean to be brutal. He clearly loves them both. Which is impossible. And devastating. I mean it – how could Teddy not love him? Playing guitar one minute, torturedly whispering into her mouth the next.

There’s so much more in this episode – Mark Sloan becoming the sexiest Grandpa on TV and Meredith making a deal with the devil and Arizona and Derek and Mark paying their own hard-earned money to save the life of a very sick little boy.

It made my heart happy, that story. And so did the story of the woman living without a heart for all that time and surviving. Both of those stories were our little gift to you, to send you into this holiday season with a little more hope and optimism.

Arizona Picture
Oh, Der

These two did everything to save their patient. Even pay for his treatment.

Callie: George, hey. I'm surprised you're not, I mean... isn't there a big presentation happening with Izzie?
George: I didn't even know she was sick. Bailey told me after Cristina told her. Izzie trusted Cristina. I was the very last to know.
Callie: Well I'm sure Izzie wasn't trying...
George: I don't really wanna talk about it any more. What I wanna do is work. Do you have any room on your service?
Callie: Ah yeah. I have 3 hip replacements, and a tib fib repair.
George: Thank you.

Derek: It’s a little...
Meredith: It’s not that strange. I mean, I’m trying to figure out how to put her to rest. I can’t shove her in the back of my closet anymore. I have to deal with her. And this is me trying... to evolve. I’m trying here. So, cubby or car?
Derek: You’re asking me if I think you should put your mom’s ashes in your cubby or your car. You don’t think that’s very very strange?
Boy: Are those really your mom’s ashes?
Derek: It’s strange, right? It’s strange.
