Sorry-another post about Grey's but the season's over so non-Grey's fans won't have to worry about these for a while

Disclaimer: Don't read if you haven't watched the season finale

So Denny's dead. I called it. As soon as Izzie said yes to his (ridiculous) proposal, I said, "He's going to die." Thank God. I'm sorry, Denny, you seemed really nice and everything, but that storyline was out of control. All of the other interns risk their entire medical careers for her? No. Asinine. That's the only word for it. Bailey was effing fantastic as usual. FANTASTIC. She is hands down my favorite character on the whole show. Her planning the prom might have been the greatest thing ever, and she seemed to be the only one reacting how a normal human being would react to what Izzie did. I'm really pissed that Izzie quit and didn't get fired like she should have been.

Everything else about the episode was terrific. The scenes with Burke and Shepherd were honestly amazing and touching and wonderful. I love how McDreamy was like, "I can't get perspective" when thinking about the gravity of the situation. That is such a great way to put it. I have felt like that many times before. That's why I love these writers-they so eloquently describe the feelings we all feel.

Christina made me really mad the whole episode, and Diane and I were yelling, "Dump her ass!" But then she finally came through at the end, and it was great. When Burke said to her, "I need you to tell me what to do." I almost lost it. He never needs anyone to tell him what to do. Dammit-this show is still great despite the Izzie BS.

By the way, when Denny died, it was this really sad moment and you were supposed to feel really bad, but when Alex said all that wonderful stuff to Izzie and then he picked her up and held her, all Diane and I were saying was, "Holy shit-that is so hot. See-he still loves her! Maybe they'll get back together!" Denny's body wasn't even cold yet. That is how much I so didn't care.

Let's see...George is getting some and that's awesome, the chief's wife is great and her speech to him about putting family over patients was also great, Addison needs to not be a doormat anymore. Let him go, Addison. You should be with someone who appreciates you. I heard McSteamy is coming back as a series regular and that is A-okay with me!

Nothing else really happened...oh um except that DEREK AND MEREDITH DID IT!!! What?!? That was awesome! But I'm so torn. I love Finn. I can't wait to find out who she chooses. I'll leave it to her-I don't think I can choose.

Despite my annoyance with the Izzie/Denny stuff, I freaking love this show, and I am going to miss it so much over the summer!

Who is McStreamy? Did I miss something? I did not like that Mcdreamy and meredith hooked back up. I want her to choose fin! Fin is good for her. Fin can love her and be with her! FIN GOSH DAMNIT! sorry, moment there. Anywho, great sum up and yes, alex is very hot in that scene

Ok, so....who expected Alex to be such a sweetheart? ME! I knew it was all jealousy! Those tough guys are usually the biggest softies! You know she'll be her dumb bitch self and resist him and that dance will go on forever, but we'll always have that moment...when he held her!!! And let her cry!! Ugh! Plus, does he clean up well or what??

I kept expecting addison to walk in on derek and meredith. What a payback THAT would have been! huh? huh? huh?? Of course, meredith will leave with finn...cus derek is still married. They'll do their flirty drive each other nuts thing an entire THIRD season, and then they'll hook up. people want it too much, so they'll screw with our minds!

I vote they go all 90210 and have a summer season! Remember those? That was the coolest shit ever!

I was DYING the entire episode. And the whole sex scene with Meredith and Derrick. I screamed, "NO" at the television. Although it was hot, I think it proved that what they have is basicially a lustful relationship, it's not freaking love. If Derrick cared at all about HER he wouldn't have done that.

Alex holding Izzie was one of the best parts in my opinion too. That's the part where all the tears starting dripping off my face and a puddle formed on my pajamas.

It was nice to see Alex's soft side. He's usually such a snotty bastard, I'm glad they gave me a reason to like him. I also enjoyed how Alex was the only one briefly interested in saving his career! There is NO WAY they would have all been willing to sacrifice everything they worked so hard for, even if they did help Izzie.

Bailey's reaction to what happened was priceless. I thought she was going to hit Izzie for a second there!

Why on earth can't Grey & Dreamy just get together? Addison cheated, seemingly just to get him to "care" about something she did. What a self-indulgent way to beg for attention! The longer they drag this out the more everyone involved will HURT.

Callie has no waist. They should have put her in a better dress. And, her hair is disturbing me. No doctor who can't even be bothered to find a place to live will take the time to mess with all those layers and wisps!!!! Put that shit in a bun already!

We're the same.

Am I the only one who sobbed uncontrollably at putting the dog to sleep? There is probably something wrong with me, but even with all the human drama, I struggled with that scene bigtime.

Sarah said...

Anon, no I know!!! That is the only part I cried at, and it was so horrible! Can't believe I forgot to mention it. Diane and I did not handle it well.

The dog scene...very sad. I felt bad for the dog and bad for Derek because I think he liked the dog. Meredith, on the other hand, gave that dog away after about a week and a half. She was only crying because she was losing a connection between herself and Derek. Plus, she was like "gotta run so I can get ready for the prom". Heartless wench.

slcup said...

I disagree with you, Anon, about why Meredith was crying. She was crying because 1) it sucks to lose an animal; 2) the death of the dog, in her mind, symbolized the death of any chance of a relationship with Derek.

Melanie was here said...

What happened to Meredith's underwear after the sex-capade? Think they'll fall out of McDreamy's pant leg in front of Addison to open next year's seson??

Melanie was here said...

And the dog bit made me cry. Very sad. And yes I'm aware it is television, but it was still sad.

SLC, I think you just restated what I said about why she was crying, except you added the "losing an animal sucks" part which is a given.

Carly said...

I was so NOT into her having sex with Derek that when he was taking her stockings off I said to Joe "why would she be wearing stockings with THOSE shoes? that's just wrong".

I like how Callie glared at Derek, like "You cockroach..."

Hello! The Cav's beat the freaking Piston's last night. That should be the only conversation in this blog- I though you were from Cleveland?? Do you know how awesome that game was! Not to mention – it’s real and not some scripted, make believe crap. I like that show as much as the next guy but, I like the Cavaliers shutting up Rasheed and the other doubter’s so much more. Go CAV’s! But that was an awesome recap, you ROCK!

Sarah you saw that Grey's is moving to Thurday night at 9? That really ef's with my schedule but we will work it out somehow. The ABC execs think this show can take CSI, which I doubt, but that remains to be seen...

BTW, I totally agreed that Denny should be "removed" for the show (I am using removed instead of killed off since I dont wish death on anyone.) That story line was just rediculous. Other points of note: I hope Izzie comes back cause she's hot. That was a hot scene between Derek and Mere. More of that please!!

Ok..I loved the GA season finale so much, I TiVoed and watched it again! Seriously!

I'm in love with Alex...I can't help myself. He's not the ass he pretends to be, and that just makes him so sexy! Farewell Denny...RIP. Too bad you did't take Izzie with you. McDreamy and Meredith doin' the dirty deed...at the prom no less! I didn't see that one coming, as we have been subjected to the deep, meaningful looks all season. All that angst and shit...makes me tired.

Yes, being a dog person, I too cried like a baby when they put the dog to sleep. I got up at the next commercial and gave my pups a treat. Of course, the whole scene was to make us mourn the last link between Meredith and McDreamy. Don't have to hit us over the head with it or anything, eh? Is Chris O'Donnell coming back? Have we heard anything substantive about that? McSteamy becoming a regular? I may have to have two drinks and an ice pack...that man makes my upper lip sweat and my mouth all dry.

What will I do all summer for television viewing? *sigh*

Thanks as always for the GA love and break down! I've got my sister reading you now...
