‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Kills A Main Character

If you have not watched the April 23 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” ‘How to Save a Life’ stop reading. 

Rest in Peace Derek Shepard.

I could not bring myself to write this article about the recent death on “Grey’s Anatomy,” which killed off a main character Derek Shepard, McDreamy himself.

“It’s been a remarkable ride,” the Patrick Dempsey told TVLine. “The worldwide impact has been extraordinary. It is incredible how devoted and passionate the fans are and I will forever be grateful and humbled by the experience.”

Series creator Shonda Rhimes also released a statement:

Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character — for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy.’ Patrick Dempsey’s performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example — happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true — of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning.

He was a husband to many, not only Meredith. R.I.P., McDreamy.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 9 Spoilers: Avery, Alex Stepping Up, Cristina and Owen Getting Back Together?

The upcoming season (the season of romance) of Grey’s Anatomy by Shonda Rhimes will feature the Residents of Seattle Grace as Attendings.

The eighth season finale which aired in May featured the death of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) and the departure of Kim Raver aka Teddy. In addition, Eric Dane, who has played Mark “McSteamy” Sloan since the second season, announced last week that he is leaving after wrapping his storyline in the upcoming season.

Eric Dane Leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Mark (Eric Dane), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) — has a plane crash in the mountains, with Lexie subsequently dying. Although there seemed to be no hope in the last season finale, the doctors will eventually get rescued.

According to many blogs, there will be a time-jump on the next season of “Grey’s Anatomy.” The first episode will begin two-three months after the plane crash. Shonda Rhimes told TVGuide, “they’re located where they’re going to be located, things are happening. You see the aftermath of what happened. You’re left with some questions as to how this happened and “Why is this the way it is?” and “Why is that the way it is?”” However, the second episode will return to the woods, fans learn what went on in the woods. The following episodes will return to the regular timeline.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Casts Camilla Luddington

The upcoming season will be shot in two locations: Seattle Grace and another hospital. Rhimes promised, fans will “understand why some people stayed and why some people left. There are some very clear reasons what happened.”

Some doctors will leave Seattle Grace, while some will be preparing to leave. Rhimes acknowledged to TVGuide, “when we come back at the beginning of the season, some of our doctors are in different locations, more than one of them, and some of our doctors are preparing to leave for different locations.”

Of course, there will be some physical inquiries following the plane crash. Another effect of the plane crash is the way the doctors will react. According to Rhimes interview with TVGuide, “their attitudes are very different. They already have the coping mechanisms in place, so it’s just a very different attitude.”

Gaius Charles will recur in “Grey’s Anatomy

As for Cristina and Owen, Rhimes teased, the couple will find their way back to each other. “It’s not going to be easy and it’s not going to be quick, but I think it’s going to be really beautiful.”

With Eric Dane leaving, EW reports showrunner Rhimes wants Justin Chambers (Alex) and Jesse Williams (Avey) to “step up.” “The loss of ‘McSteamy’ is going to leave a giant hole in our world in terms of — for lack of a better phrase — man whore-ness. I’ve told the actors who play Alex and Jackson that we need some leading men here. We need to add to that pool, and they’re going to step up. I think the breed of what Eric Dane did can never be replaced, but I do think there’s some room for some men at the hospital to spread their wings. We haven’t seen that in a while.”

When asked about her characters’ fate, Rhimes was tight-lipped, but she did mention April will return to her family’s farm. But she will return to the hospital in an interesting way.

Rhimes shared with THR, “we’ve been calling this season the season of romance and talking about playing up the romance of surgery and the romance between characters and the romance of friendships and really mining that as much as we can so it’s not going to be a dark season.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” is set to premiere Thurs., Sept. 27 on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Season 8 Ep 21-22.

The Ultimate Question: Who failed the boards?

GREY'S ANATOMY - "Moment of Truth" - After eight years of practice, the residents head to San Francisco for their oral boards; sparks fly between Catherine and Richard when they bump into each other at the hotel; Bailey intervenes after Owen and Teddy get into a heated argument about their young car crash patient; and Mark tries to recruit Lexie for one of his cases. Meanwhile, Alex feels guilty for being away from the hospital when Tommy's health begins to fail, on Grey's Anatomy, THURSDAY, APRIL 26 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT)SARAH DREW, JESSE WILLIAMS

I don’t even know if this counts as a recap, but can I just say how much I loved this episode?! It’s my favorite episode this season. It keeps getting better! I didn’t write a recap last week, because it wouldn’t have done the episode justice.

The drama with the Boards exam continued and it was so intense; Meredith was sick, Kepner got into a fight and she liked it, Karev’s mind was in Seattle, Avery broke his lucky pencil. LoL! Just when you think the interview is going well, someone snaps, mostly the interviewee. At the beginning of this episode, it was so hard to determine who will pass the Boards.

Alex left for Seattle before the boards started because he couldn’t stop thinking about his patient (Intern’s baby). On getting to Seattle, there wasn’t much to do and the baby died. Robbins convinced him to go back for his boards, he was already late and the traffic didn’t help either, so he had to run to the venue which was 20 blocks away from the traffic jam. He arrived at the venue after the first session ended, but according to the rules, you can pass the boards if you get a perfect score in two out of three sessions. He was prepared to give it his best, but the interviewers seemed like they couldn’t get past the fact that he was late and they had been waiting for him all morning.

Meredith’s stomach flu wasn’t helping either, she vomitted several times and she almost quit the interview. She called Derek and said “Will you still love me if I fail?” As prescribed by Bailey, Derek decided to go with the ‘metaphor style’ and it worked, because Meredith was even more motivated to finish the interview. She continued to throw up in front of the interviewers…and she did it in the trash can…ewww! But who cares?! She was confident and she knew what she was talking about. 🙂

Cristina and her interviewer were not getting along at all. They were two geniuses from completely different generations. As we all know Christina has her smart, but aggressive way of doing things, the interviewer didn’t get why she was so confident that her methods would work. Cristina tried to tolerate the interviewer, but when she couldn’t take it any longer, she snapped and gave him a lecture! “Just tell me the decade you want and I’ll provide the answer” Haha. Lol.

Jackson had seen his mum earlier with Webber when he went to get his lucky pencil and he was grossed out, so his day started out rough. But it got even worse when he found out that his mum was the interviewer in the next room. It was so hard to focus on his interview as he heard his mother’s loud and unending laughter. Poor Avery 😦 his second session was better after his “encounter with Kepner.” 😉

Kepner was crazy! Haha! Lol! This episode was the most face-time she ever got since the beginning of the season! Like the others, her interview wasn’t going so well. She bent the rules of the interview, she yelled, screamed, took off her jacket and did a lil dance for the interviewers. She was cracking me up… haha! Poor girl. She was trying so hard not to fail that she ruined the interview. During her second session, she was rambling and saying things that were irrelevant to the questions being asked. She was really trying to process what happened with Avery and how she had gone against her values.

They all found out their results and it was just like Avery’s Mum said “only four out of five passed.”

So who failed? The  look on Kepner’s face pretty much gives away the answer 😦 but we can’t be so sure! (there could be a twist)

Moving on to  non-board related issues…Mark and Lexie?!  She confessed…OMG! like 10 times…aww! The moment we have all been waiting for! But Julia is still in the picture. 😦 I smell drama…Are they getting back together?

Here is the preview for the next episode… see for your self! 🙂

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thurs. at 9/8c on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 Ep. 20: The Girl With No Name

“When you are a kid, you always want things to stay the same, the same teacher, same house, same friends. Being a Surgeon is no different, you get used to the same attendings, same scrub nurses, same hospital…Of course, that all changes, the minute fifth-year comes around and you have to find a new job…it’s one of those things people say, you can’t move on until you have left go of the past, letting go is the easy part, it’s the moving on that is painful, so sometimes we fight it, try and keep things the same, things can’t stay the same though, at some point you just have to let go, move on! Because no matter how painful it is, it’s the only way we grow” Meredith Grey (Episode Narrative).

GREY'S ANATOMY - "The Girl with No Name" - The doctors work on a Jane Doe, who turns out to be the subject of a case that gained national interest; Cristina proves to be the highest in demand as the residents begin their interviews for post-residency positions at prospective hospitals; and Richard is faced with an unsettling realization when he visits Adele at Rose Ridge, on "Grey's Anatomy," THURSDAY, APRIL 19 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/RANDY HOLMES)VANESSA MARANO, ELLEN POMPEO, PATRICK DEMPSEY

This episode was centered around the ‘fifth-years’, their job interviews, and a really traumatized patient. The patient was supposedly a hiker that fell and was badly injured. Soon after she got to the hospital, Meredith noticed the scars on her body and she realized that the patient wasn’t hiking, but she had been running from someone. From her scans Teddy saw signs that show that the girl had been tortured. Apparently, She was kidnapped when she was 6 years old and the Kidnapper lived 5 miles from her parent’s house, but they didn’t find her until now (12 years later). It was sad to watch that some people have actually been through what the patient had been through-kidnapped, raped, tortured, and isolated from everyone at such a young age. There was work to be done on the patient by almost every department in the hospital. The patient formed a bond with Meredith (the psychiatrist wasn’t so happy about this) and she needed her approval for everything, everyone around her seemed like a stranger and whenever she was asked a question, she turned to Meredith before answering.

The doctors were freaked out by this case; Owen had to deal with a lot of administrative stuff around the hospital as the press gathered to feed on the story of the patient, Cristina was also there to encourage him and he looked like he needed her approval for everything. It was so hard to contain what the patient had gone through, especially for Bailey…she knew the story of how the patient had gone missing and she never stopped thinking about it. She even had a panic attack at the daycare when her son was missing. She turned the place upside down and even started crying, but it wasn’t the kidnapper (Thank Goodness), Tucker (her son) had a nosebleed and a nurse had taken him outside to get it treated. Derek and Mark witnessed the whole thing and they realized the intensity of the situation. Every parent’s worst nightmare is for their child to go missing right under their nose.

Cristina was quite the catch for the recruiters, she got offers from the best places more than everyone else and there was a basket of goodies from each one of them to convince her to work for them. Teddy doesn’t want her to leave and she tells Owen to make her stay (she didn’t get the memo about the break up o_o), but Owen yelled at her and made it clear to Teddy that she wasn’t in a position to talk to him about such matters. However, Cristina seemed to be determined to leave Seattle, but Meredith? Not so much, she’s loving the way things are right now so she is not eager to leave. She even tried to avoid the interview Bailey had set up for her, but at the end of the day she went. Dear writers, she is not really leaving right? Because there can’t be Grey’s Anatomy without Meredith Grey! #justsaying

As for the other fifth years, April’s interview didn’t go so well. She did all the talking and she was very confident about her resume. Sometimes it’s not all about what you have done, but who you are! At the end of the day, personality goes a long way! April rants to her colleagues about the situation, but Alex’s situation is even worse as he hasn’t been getting calls from the big places like others. Arizona didn’t want him to leave so she had been messing with his recommendations and referring him to smaller hospitals in places like Toledo, Canada…Ohio! haha! LOL!

No matter how far he runs or how hard he tries, Jackson Avery can’t seem to get away from his name or his family’s achievement. His Mentor, Mark had gotten him an interview, but they seem to be interested in his family rather than what he had to offer as a surgeon. Poor baby. 😦 Speaking of sad, I feel really bad for Webber, his sick wife barely remembers him and she is seeing someone else! Wow…Life!!

This was a really great episode filled with a lot of emotions; sadness, laughter, anger, anxiety, and fear. It was a great episode!!! <;3

Omg! the next episode promises to be even better!!! so excited, we are going to see some action! hint: Lexie and Mark? Kepner and Avery! Finally! What happens after the boards?!

Here’s the preview for the next episode!

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thurs. at 9/8c on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 Ep.17: One Step Too Far

“We are trained to be vigilant, to chase down the problem, to ask all the right questions, to find the root cause, until we know exactly what it is and we can confront it. It takes an extreme amount of caution or we can overstep ourselves. we can create problems where none exist. Our intentions are always pure…we always want to do what’s right, but we also have the drive to push boundaries, so we are in danger of taking this too far, we are told to do no harm, while we are trained to cut you open with a knife, so we do things when we should have left well enough alone, because it’s hard to admit when there’s no problem to treat, to let it alone, before we make it so much worse, before we cause some terrible damage”Meredith Grey: Episode Narrative

The episode opens with Christina and Owen’s drama; She was really freaking out that he didn’t come home, so she stormed the hospital only to find him sleeping in one of the On- Call rooms…alone! Unfortunately there was no Emily, only a tired Owen. Realizing the situation, She looked for an excuse on why she had come, and she said “I brought you some coffee” but that was a terrible excuse, because he asked for the Coffee and she replied “I forgot it”…Well someone is going crazy.

She confronted Emily about having an affair with Owen, but it turned out that wasn’t the case! When Owen got home, she asked that they work out their issues. Christina asked if he was still in love with her and he replies “I love you so much, it hurts” O_O that’s deep!!! She told him she thought he was having an affair with Emily, and he was shocked to hear this, but he went on and said “I am not cheating on you with Emily, but I did cheat on you” errr…What the heck?!!! Her instincts were right about him cheating, but she was wrong about the girl. This Couple’s got major issues! #GetItTogether

On to the other twisted sister, Derek suggested that Meredith should work with him again in neurology, but we all know what happened the last time they worked together. She was very hesitant about it, but she decided to do it for a day. The Trio (Derek, Mer, Lexi) initially started the surgery, but Derek had to step out to give a consultation to Callie. He was away for longer than expected and so the ladies continued the surgery without him which ended up causing a major damage to the patient. 😦  I was really rooting for them #GirlPower, but …oh well! Looks like Meredith won’t be returning to Neuro.

On to the lighter things…Avery’s Mom returned to perform a surgery with Dr Webber! Her game plan for the day besides the formal benefit and the surgery was to flirt with Webber, and spy on Avery with a very hot female doctor that she had brought along with her.  Avery had planned with McSteamy on how to deal with his mum when she arrived, but McSteamy changed his mind when he saw Mara (the female doctor). I am sure he thought *Finally, Avery is gonna get some, thanks to his mum* He was very happy to relieve Avery of his duties for the day! Well done Dr. Sloan, So much for taking one for the team…lol! Avery found out his mum’s real agenda for bringing the lady and at the end of the day, he hits it off with Mara! Looks like momma knows him best. lol!

Some of the ladies of Grey’s Anatomy (the ones that have known Alex for a very long time) suspect Alex and Morgan might be a thing, but he strongly denied  it…It looks like Morgan is really into it and the ladies might be right. O_O I hope she’s not another Izzy or Rebecca. Why does Alex always get the crazies?! Dear writers, Please give him a stable relationship this time…thanks!

This episode should be titled “flirting”…lol! Alex and Morgan, Emily and Owen, Catherine and Richard, Avery and Mara…haha! lol!

It was a good episode, they stepped it up. It was better than the past few episodes. What do you think? Do you think they can keep it up till the finale?

The next episode airs on April 5th…ugh! They like making us wait 😦

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thurs. at 9/8c on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 Ep. 16 Recap: ‘If Only You Were Lonely’

IF ONLY YOU WERE LONELY…

This Episode was centered around Morgan, the pregnant intern from the previous episode. Her Baby was in a critical condition, weighing only one pound with some complications. The Baby’s father was also a Doctor in another hospital, he was the extroverted type and this made things harder for the Doctors to take some measures to save the baby. I can see the father’s point, I think the measures were extreme and aggressive. It was very hard to watch, it was like torturing the baby, but it was necessary to save the child’s life. Morgan gave the baby-daddy a chance to back out, because he wasn’t supportive of the situation. I also felt sad for Dr. Webber, having to deal with his wife’s condition. She finally realized her condition in this episode (about time).

Christina also took it upon herself to stalk a pretty nurse who might become her replacement for Owen, her insecurity was really kicking in. She desperately went to Owen, but he didn’t bulge. Sucks for Christina and she just might lose it! Speaking of grudges, Teddy won’t cut Owen a slack, because of Henry’s death. He’s well aware of that, but in this episode she made it very clear to everyone! This made his standing as chief a little shaky ( he doesn’t mind being pushed around by Teddy, even in the presence of his subordinates) …Poor Owen, wait till she finds out that he assisted her in getting $4million grant. o_0

On a lighter note…Mark noticed that Avery had been really cranky and he suggested female companionship to fix this. He urged Kepner to “take one for the team” since she was Avery’s “Study Buddy”. So Silly and Petty of him. LOL. What a mentor! Jackson wasn’t interested in anyone (except Lexie) and Mark Quickly figured it out…Be Prepared for drama and “awkwardness”

This episode wasn’t my favorite, it was just here and there 😦

What do you think? Did you like this episode? Has this Season measured up to the previous seasons?

I hope the next Episode is better. Here’s the preview….Looks like it’s going to be a dramatic episode! Enjoy…

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thurs. at 9/8c on ABC.

Grey’s Anatomy, Season 8 Episode 13 ( If/Then)

“Your life is a gift, accept it! no matter how screwed up or painful it seems to be; some things are gonna work out as if they were destined to happen” — Meredith GreyImage

This episode was centered around Meredith as she analyzes her life and wondered if things could have been different, especially if her mom didn’t have Alzheimer’s and others what if’s include:

What if she wasn’t friends with Christina? O_O no twisted sisters!?

What if Richard Webber and her mom were together and he was her dad? I can manage that, but “Meredith Webber” doesn’t sound as good as “Meredith Grey”

What if  Meredith was in love with nerdy Alex? *cringes*…that was so wrong!!! #justsaying

By the way,  Alex’s look was hilarious, but he is still screwing around

What if Bailey wasn’t the Bailey we are used to? Didn’t see that one coming, she was thrown to the back seat on this one!

What if Kepner wasn’t a saint after all? Haha…but she’s still awkward as always.

What if Owen and Torrez were married with 3 kids? haha…that was so weird , but Mer got kids part right since they both wanted kids!

What if Lexie was a junkie, but still got the brains? I almost didn’t recognize her with the tattoos and piercings, good break from the normal Lexie.

************

Enough with the recap, now excuse me while I rant!

I am a huge fan of the show, but this season hasn’t really measured up to the earlier ones and it’s the last season 😦

The writer keeps leaving us hanging, this episode wasn’t really necessary (just like the musical episode). It would have been awesome if she continued from where the last week’s episode ended: Owen and Cristina’s fight, that was a huge one and it would have been a very dramatic episode. Also Mark and Lexie’s story was left hanging (I miss them) don’t you?…people were expecting them to get back together, but the writer keeps deviating from the couple.

At some point, it looked like she was going to build on April Kepner’s Character…you know the encounter with Alex Karev (the scene from season 7 episode 8, when he wanted to get with her)…but it was like it never even happened. ugh…

On a positive note, the next episode promises to be a very dramatic one… according to the preview, see for yourself!

What do you think?
