OMG! I COMPLETELY WANT TO LOSE ALL MY COOL AND FANGIRL OUT AT THIS AWESOME MID-SEASON FINALE THAT HAD THE BEST CLIFF HANGER THAT LITERALLY HAD ME UP AND OUT OF MY SEAT AND SO MAD THAT I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL FEBRUARY FOR RESOLUTION!!! *ahem* But I’m totally going to keep my cool and write about this week’s episode without all that fangirl enthusiasm, except for the part where I stuff this post FULL of photos and gifs of the wedding. So we’re all cool with that, right? Good. Here goes…
Bailey : I am so OVER it! I guess she’s miraculously healed, right? I have to remember these episodes aren’t happening in real time and she’s been on her medication for a few weeks now, which makes her just about perfect. But the way she is blaming her husband makes me SO MAD! I just want to knock her out.
Arizona and Callie : I kind of feel, like, I just wanna say, “Aww…” Because Arizona was so vulnerable with April at the end. But I also am not sure if I agree with her insistence that Callie wants to fix her as if that’s bad. I’m really thinking on this one and trying to see her point, because I feel that will come to a head at some point. But I think Callie is just trying to give Arizona what she thinks Arizona really wants…and maybe that’s not great? Meh. I’m stuck on this one.
Karev (and Jo) : Oh man, the situation with Karev’s father! I was kind of psyched that he told him off. I guess it’s not cool to call someone worthless, but I was with him for every second. When Karev pulled himself together and came back and really explained to his dad where he stood and why…and how he said good-bye…I just thought that was completely adult and very cool of him. I wonder how Karev will feel if his dad is dead. (His dad is dead, right?) Oh, but at the end, the way he ran to Jo. Like, I want to be there for him, because Karev deserves love and I think Jo is cool…but at the same time, that is a LOT to put on someone. I feel like there is going to be a hot mess in the future. Because I think that Karev basically just laid forever on the line for Jo and I don’t think they’ve been together long enough for that. Is anyone else feeling like there will be drama here in the future?
Ross : OOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN…wow. Just wow. I did not see this craziness coming. I guess I should’ve because of how he was after Short Intern’s death. I guess the way he was sort of crazy with Yang was foreshadowing. The thing he did with his hours was kind of intense too. But I just did not see him going all Intern Screw Up on us. Although, I guess it’s about time, right? We haven’t had a really great Intern Screw Up in a while. My fave is still Izzy and Denny. I wonder if Ross will even return in February. This could be a great way to just write him out. He could totally freak out and take off, right?
Poor Leah : Just, poor Leah. That girl needs to find a new girlfriend or get on a new service or something. That girl is just not getting a break at all. Poor Leah.
Cristina and Meredith : Oh man, HOORAY for them sorting out their stuff! I have been calling it all along, about how Cristina is not the Mean Girl Meredith has made her out to be. I’m so glad she stood up for herself and I am SO GLAD that Meredith admitted her envy! I just KNEW it! I hope this means they will be solidly together in the future, because I like them together.
Meredith and Derek : Ok, so Derek may or may not have turned down the actual President, right? I mean, that phone call was ominous and there was no resolution. But since Meredith thanked him for turning things down…if he didn’t actually turn down the President…then we’re in for some drama, right?
Owen and Cristina : Did anyone else notice those looks at the wedding? I loved how Owen was on everyone’s case to be at the wedding. It was such a nice thing he did for April. As he was doing that, I was just thinking about why can’t he and Yang just work it out somehow. And then Yang was looking at him at the wedding and it really makes me wonder if we’re in for them trying to rekindle their love in February!
THE WEDDING (aka April/Matthew/Avery/Stephanie love trapezoid) : OH MAN! 1. Her dress was BEAUTIFUL! Honestly, that’s almost exactly my dream dress. And her veil! I’m a wedding photographer and I was just LOVING that wedding. It was so pretty! 2. But then when Avery stood up and interrupted the wedding. All the squees in the entire world. I was literally out of my seat. I rewatched the episode and felt the same. I am SO HAPPY he did that, because I did NOT believe they were resolved. 3. But then I feel really badly for Stephanie, because she was ready to tell him she loved him and she was so googly eyed at the wedding. No matter what April says, Stephanie and Avery are definitely over. 4. And then Poor Matthew. That kid never had a chance. 5. And April’s reaction?!?!?! Best. Cliffhanger. Ever. I mean, maybe not ever. But I’m so hooked and will be so mad in a few weeks that I have a month or more to wait to see the results!
In other news, did anyone else notice the Best Woman on the groom’s side at the wedding? I thought that was super cool. Also, if you loved that rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” I found a link for downloading, here. What did you think of what went down? Are you with Bailey in her stubborness against her husband? Do you think Derek should take the President’s offer? Do you think April and Avery should get back together? Tell me in the comments!!!
