Callie's Seeing Red
The Boards, The Board and The Boss
Still Grey’s Anatomy
I’ve always maintained that Grey’s Anatomy works best when Meredith is at its center. My big fear going into this season was that the new interns have absolutely zero connection to the original doctors, and I’m not a fan of the let-Greys-run-like-ER revolving door scenario. When Meredith is gone, I’m gone. But I’ve actually found a deep appreciation for the format of the season thus far - Meredith’s current story may not be groundbreaking or jaw-dropping, but its realistic and funny and it still feels like it matters. Seeing the chick who binged on tequila and broke guys penis’ and had an intense drive for nothing but surgery now stuck at home changing diapers is pretty awesome, and it’s a great parallel to the fact that Cristina refused to be that woman. I’m excited to see Meredith balance work and raising the kids - and she must be struggling terribly with the worry of letting them grow up with an absentee mother like she did. The final scene with Webber was awesome as well. We’ve watched them for 10 years sort out their relationship, he’s the closest thing she’s ever had to a real parent, and watching a parent grow old or get sick is just about the hardest thing in the world. Richard’s anger is expected if not warranted. He’s a man who heals for a living, his wife recently died, not only must he be terrified but also sad. I’m genuinely excited to see this storyline play out. Likewise as long as the interns are working under our doctors I - gulp - really don’t mind them that much.. Okay, I really dislike Stephanie and Leah. But I like the idea of seeing our interns teach the new interns. Especially as we prepare to say goodbye to Cristina and end her journey at SG / GSM. I sort of wish they’d end the show after this season, but after 10 years of ups and downs I’m open to whatever Shonda cooks up as long as our main Grey is sticking it out. Life does indeed go on and Grey's has proved remarkable at evolving over time while always maintaining the heart of the show. So what are your thoughts on the season and storylines thus far?
