Finally, Grey’s is back from the longest hiatus ever! The opening scene had me squealing like the fan girl I am…Avery and Kepner, running from the barn, together at last! HOORAY!!! After that exciting entrance, it looked like we were in for an exciting episode, but that was a fake out. Everyone’s getting over the drama from the wedding, and their all lashing out with their own drama, and it seemed like it would be so exciting, but cut to three week’s later and everything is just fine, sort of.
Arizona and Callie : When they were gathering the gifts from the wedding and returning them, and Arizona just flipped out, telling Callie it wasn’t going to work, that got me excited. I’m not a fan of Arizona and I hate who Callie is with Arizona. But when they cut to the three weeks later, they were buying a house! Color me super disappointed. So I guess those two are happy, whatever.
Owen and Cristina : They didn’t actually have much going on. Cristina and Meredith are patching things up, which is fine. It’s weird and sort of awkward, but I’m glad they’re still friends. There was a suggestion that Owen was being hard on Cristina’s ex-intern because they were sleeping together, but that was never fully developed. Instead, Owen was just kind of the bad guy in this episode. Of course, Cristina had my favorite point of view on the show, saying that April and Avery running away was the best thing she had ever seen. Couldn’t agree more.
Meredith and Derek : Ugh. I’m so over them. Whatever. Meredith is being friendly with Cristina, which I like. I like her best when she’s in the thick of everything, being friends with people, and helping out. Derek has been called by the President for some sort of redesigning of American health or…I don’t care. That story line is so outlandish and I’m not interested. I’m also not interested in Meredith being mad at him for it. If I were in a position to do anything for the President…well, I might not agree to it…but if I did, everyone in my life could just back up off me for any commitments I had, because that would be the biggest deal.
Bailey and What’s His Name : I’m also sort of over them. I guess it’s good that they fought a lot after the wedding and had a break through. Cut to three weeks later and he’s practicing surgery at Sloan-Grey, so that’s nice for Bailey. Things are just nice for them, I guess.
Alex and Jo : Ok, so everyone knew that in the last episode, Alex proposed to Jo, right? So when he referred to her as his fiance and she freaked out about it, I was so annoyed. It was so clear to me that he proposed and she said yes, and I’m just over her stupid drama. I’m glad Alex’s dad died, because I was getting tired of that story line. Alex does better when he has not family to consider. But now I see him and Jo fighting a lot because she’s super stupid. Maybe it’s for the best. I thought Jo was a good match for Alex, but maybe she’s just an idiot.
Webber and The Interns : Since the hiatus was so long, I forgot all their names, and in this episode, they weren’t really interesting enough for me to remember. So Cristina’s Lover freaked out and ended up killing Alex’s dad and then disappearing, all passed out on a bench outside of the hospital. I thought this was going to be an interesting story line similar to when Izzie had her whole debacle. Instead, cut to three weeks later and the drama has passed. This is what bugged me so much about that cut, it just removed a good chunk of awesome drama and story lines. Avery’s ex moped around the whole episode, and I just didn’t understand why. I didn’t think they were together that long or were all that great together. Clearly, I missed something. Blonde intern was the most interesting, but only at the end, encouraging Avery’s ex to file a complaint that brought the board together to being a zero tolerance policy. And this is an interesting twist, because the entire premise of the show is all the shenanigans and how it’s completely the most inappropriate work environment ever. I mean, some people are already married, but what will happen now? Will it be super boring? Not sure. Also, Webber is everyone’s dad. He’s so one dimensional now. He’s just the Wise Old Black Man instead of an interesting and complicated character. Color me bored.
April and Avery : HOORAY!!! Hooray, hooray, hooray, hooray! I’m so glad they’re together! Now we don’t have to have that extra EMT guy being sort of in the show but sort of not since they only ever focus on surgeons. And also, those two were just great together anyway, and I love this! Of course, they have all sorts of awkwardness at work, so that might be interesting or super annoying.
In other news, this episode feature nobody’s children, which made me so happy. I was so annoyed with the happy little family angle happening. If these people work as much as they say they do, then it would be nannies doing all the parenting. So let’s just keep it that way. I don’t need to see any kids. How do you feel about what went down? Are you glad that nearly everyone is happy in their respective relationships for at least this moment? Do you think April should’ve declined Avery’s love? Are you as tired of those annoying interns as I am? Let me know in the comments!
