Grey's Anatomy:


I have so many things to say about last night’s episode so bare with me. I want to get it out there that I was overall disappointed with last night’s episode. The last few episodes of Grey’s have been some of the best, I have really enjoyed them. However the finale was sub-par, there were some great moments but overall I walked away very disappointed.

Meredith & Derek:

I am starting with them because it will be quick… I thought the post-it note was stupid. I liked some of the vows they made to one another but to write them on a post-it and then announce they you are married is just plain silly. They are the central couple of the show so I expect more than this. I know that Meredith isn’t a big wedding person but at the very least go to the court house.

Lexie & Mark:

I really wanted Lexie and George to be together, which obviously may not be able to happen now (we will talk more about that later) but I am getting on board with Sloan and Lexie. At first I was uneasy about Lexie I know a lot of Meredith fans really didn’t like her but as you know I am not a huge Meredith fan so I was pretty open to her. I think she has become a great character….I know this is hard for people to hear but I think she is the Izzie of her class, she is super intelligent but really cares about each patient. If Izzie does die I think she will take over as the resident that has a hard time drawing the line. Back to the relationship between the two, I think Lexie brings out great qualities in Mark. Mark seems to really love her and it is fun to watch a “ladies man” become a lady man. I think we will see much more of this couple next season.

Cristina & Hunt:

Cristina has become one of my favorite characters on Grey’s, she really intrigues me. The story line between her and Hunt is wonderful because both of them are so guarded and have a lot of emotional issues so it is fun to watch everything unfold. I really hope they last a while because I was very sad when her and Burke broke up, I thought they were a wonderful couple. I am happy they have found a great replacement for Cristina. I can’t wait to peel back more layers of Owen Hunt, I want to know more about his fiance and why he couldn’t call her. I want to know more about what happen to him at war. I am so intrigued by his emotional baggage. I want to see Cristina pull all these things out of him and she is great at really standing by her man through difficult situations…can’t wait!!

Izzie & Alex: (deep breath)

Well one of my friends wanted me to make sure I wrote about how wonderful Alex is so…. It is not a surprise to my readers that I love Alex. He is a complex character that has been through so much. Once again it is nice to see a guy who is typically a “ladies man” turn into a one woman guy. Izzie stole Alex’s heart in season one and has been waiting for the right time since. There have been a couple moments over the previous four seasons where Alex had a shot with Izzie but it wasn’t their time. You could always tell the way he felt about Izzie was different than the way he felt about any other of his love interests. This season he finally won Izzie’s heart and he has been showing us the deep love he has for her ever since. The last few episodes have been wonderful for Justin Chambers. He has really gotten a chance to showcase his acting capabilities and I for one am impressed. Last week when he was sitting on the bench outside the hospital after finding out Izzie had another tumor was one of his strongest emotional scenes. When he was crying to Meredith I truly believed his emotions and wanted to reach through the scene and hug him. Last night on the season finally he had many great scenes that seemed real…when he was yelling at Derek after the surgery, when he fussed with Cristina, his ranting to Izzie, and ofcourse when she was being wheeled into surgery …his tears were so real! I love Alex and I hate that he (might) have to go through this. However it could make for some great acting next season as he deals with his grief….Do you think he will fall back into hard/rough Alex?!?!? Probably, but now that we have all seen his heart it will be hard to hide it as well as he once could.

On to the actual events of last night: the struggle Izzie had making the choice of surgery was heart breaking, what a tough decision to make. It broke my heart when they did the “fake” brain sleep thing (so technical) it was so hard to watch her struggle with speaking and recognizing simple things. Also I felt so badly for Alex during that sequence because he doesn’t want to lose her but he also doesn’t want to live with regret that she is stuck being something she doesn’t want to be. I agreed with her decision to have the surgery, it seemed more hopeful than her other option. I was surprised when she made it through the surgery so early in the episode and then when she lost her short term memory I thought that was it, she will have to be put in a home or something (it seems like that would be much worse than losing your long term memory, maybe I am ignorant but you could build up new memories and people could help you understand who you once were – all of it seems bad though). I loved how Alex wrote the sticky notes all over and was really pushing for her to remember, I thought it was sweet how much effort he put into it. When he went off at Izzie those words may have sounded so hateful but I thought it was a heart wrenching moment, one that seemed so real. The emotions he went through seemed like what someone in his situation would go through, I could smoother you with a pillow, shot you up with morphine or leave you…but I can’t live with any of those options. That hit me so hard, how sad when you don’t have any good options and they all will changed your life forever! The last moments of the episode when she remembered the fight was great and I was so glad Alex and Izzie got a moment to embrace and love on each other before she lost conciseness. The question we are left with is will Izzie die??? If she doesn’t die will she back working in the hospital??? I am assuming she is dead given all the rumors but a part of me is hoping they are just trying to shock us and make us think they aren’t coming back when they are.


Well they pulled one over on me BIG TIME!! It is hard to completely pull one over on me not because I am so smart and great at figuring things out but because I have a TV blog and read all that I can about each show. I usually know if someone is going to die or leave the show and so it is more of how it happens sometimes that gets me (there are times where I try not to look at stuff because I really don’t want to know). Most often I try not to share too many of those spoilers on my blog because I think it ruins some of the stories….Anyways you would have to be living under a rock to not hear about all the drama surrounding Katherine and TR leaving the show. That being said I knew that Izzie was probably going to die and that George was going to join the army, I had NO IDEA that George would be hit by a bus. At what point did ya’ll realize that it was John Doe was indeed George??? I didn’t even think about it until he wrote out “007” on Meredith’s hand….and proceeded to have chills all over my body! There was a point during the episode that I told my husband I wished they didn’t have this “other” story line in the episode because there was so much going on with the main characters; little did I know it WAS one of the main characters. So now the question we are left with is, did George die?? Will he be back next season?? If you read the news your immediate answer will be: yes he died, he won’t be back. However I read an interview with creator Shonda this morning and here is what she said about Izzie and George’s cliffhangers:

Rumors have been swirling all year that Katherine and TR wanted off the show. The season ends with both their characters' lives hanging in the balance. Purely coincidental?

SHONDA RHIMES: I don't think there are any coincidences. I think Katherine's stated publicly that she's happy to stay. I think that there have been lots of rumors about TR, but TR's never said anything. Take from it what you will.

This kind of cliffhanger almost seems tailor-made to capitalize on some of those headlines and generate buzz.

RHIMES: You have to remember, I have two shows. It's not as if I spend a lot of time reading the press. We talk about stuff in the writers' room that other people have read, but, mostly, we were really moving on character. Every year at the beginning of the season I pitch what the end of the season is going to be. And I literally sat down and pitched the last 10 minutes of this season at the beginning of the season, so we were headed towards the place that we knew we were going to go.

Do you know which one of them lives and which one of them dies?

RHIMES: Yes. And I don't know that you should be saying "which one of them lives and which one of them dies." I know what happens to the characters.

Side Note: I LOVE YOUTUBE!!!! Check out the tear jerker video below:

This was the kind of closure I wanted with the characters; maybe we will get it next season.

Send Off:

Well this is the main reason I thought the episode was sub-par. If indeed this was the last we see of Izzie and George I thought it was a very weak send off… I don’t feel closer with the Characters at all!!! They waited until the last five minutes to develop the story of their deaths (if they are dead) and then just ended…I didn’t like that at all. Especially with George’s character, I had been ready this whole time to have an emotional send off with all the characters saying Goodbye to George as he went off to war but now I am left feeling empty.

Do you think it was a good ending for both characters?

not to get anybody's hopes up, BUT I think they both live. George had too many war medals to die before he even joined the army. I think they both die later and he's just waiting for Iz.

Okay--- just read this whole entry to Jordan... we were shocked the George was 007..... my opinion is that George will have to get some serious plastic surgery to look like he used to.... Jordan thinks he will leave the show only to have someone else actually play George with "a different face"
