Ahhh…so we have reached the end, and what I good end it was. I was gasping out loud and shouting at the tv and laughing and crying and everything felt good and then there were cliff hangers! This season of Grey’s has been pretty underwhelming with the biggest event being the wedding (which I did enjoy). This season seemed to lack some of the major stress and drama of seasons past, and there have been some characters that I couldn’t relate to and some really boring story lines. Even though this season was not as exciting as some, I really enjoyed the finale and I’m pretty happy with where things are.
Callie and Arizona : I guess I couldn’t have my way and have the baby talk end entirely. The didn’t have much going on except for their unspoken realization at the end that they should have a baby via a surrogate. I guess the writers are just dead set on these women being reduced to a stereotype.
Jackson and April : Not much going on with these two, which is ok. Since they had the big wedding drama, I guess it’s a balance to have their drama die down at the end of the season.
Those boring interns : Whatever. So Blondie is gone (although she appeared to have some realizations toward the end, albeit it unresolved) and Crazy Breakdown Guy is moving to Switzerland to follow Cristina. Fine. That leaves Jo and Stephanie who are still not that interesting.
Bailey and Weber (and new girl doctors) : So we think Bailey is going to get a spot on the board, but maybe not. Things are up in the air for her. Meanwhile Weber is being the dad of the group, still, running around being old wise man until the end. Sheperd’s sister, “Sheperdess,” seems to be settling in well. I’m pretty excited about her joining the show. Then Maggie, aka New Cardiothoracic Director” is just kind of popping up until the very end when she reveals that she is a daughter of Ellis Grey. Oh how the plot thickens! This might be my fave plot twist of the night. I wonder how Meredith will find out and how Weber will reveal that he’s her father. So interesting! I’m into this.
Karev : I mean, I felt like he was maybe on his way out until he found that package from Cristina. So she left him her shares and her board spot. This is trouble for Bailey, but it means Karev will still have ties to the hospital. I’m definitely interested to see where this goes. Maybe Karev can start to have some deeper connections to everyone and start to grow as a doctor.
Derek and Meredith : Oh man, I was just waiting for their fight to happen. I think it’s cool they decided to end the episode on them fighting and her refusal to leave Seattle. Because 1., she’s the title character and 2., Cristina was right; Meredith is the sun. So I wonder if they’ll split. I’m pretty happy to see this seemingly happy couple hit some bumps in the road. Meredith is infinitely more interesting when their are obstacles in her path.
Cristina and Owen : I’m so sad to see her go, and I would’ve been so mad if they had killed her. Like, I was literally yelling at my tv when that explosion happened! But then she was alive and unharmed and in that hospital trying to get closure and saying her good-byes. It was nice. I liked the way she parted. But that good-bye with Owen was THE WORST. It was so sad. Poor Owen.
And that’s it! All in all, I’m pretty happy with the way this season ended and I’m looking forward to next year. What about you? What are your thoughts? Did you like the cliff hangers? What are you hoping happens next year? Were you mad about anything? Let me know in the comments!
