Grey’s Anatomy’s Holy Sh#% Ending

MEredith Grey


Holy Mother of God what an episode of Grey’s Anatomy!! The episode just ended for me and to be honest I’m having a hard time typing due to the tears still in my eyes. In my heart of hearts I know that Meredith isn’t dead. The show is called Grey’s Anatomy and she is Meredith Grey. The don’t kill off the lead character in season three, do they? NAH. Although I truly believe that she lives, I am still overwhelming worried and concerned for her. That’s a sign of some good writing and acting.

And you know I freaked…I mean really freaked when I saw the return of Kyle Chandler (yay Coach Taylor has returned as more than pink mist) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (we lived to see Denny once more). See I see what Shonda and crew were doing here. We the audience never got to say a proper goodbye to Denny and Pink Mist. They were taken from us with no warning. Shonda still feels guilty and this is her way of appeasing us. I will forgive you Shonda, if you can give me just one more episode with these two guys. Because honestly, that was a GREAT moment that I didn’t see coming. Ok maybe I thought that Denny would show up (I mean I do read Ausiello and Veitch) but I didn’t expect him tonight and I didn’t expect him with Coach Taylor*. Bravo…bravo…bravo!!

I guess the biggest reveal for me tonight was me realizing that I like Meredith Grey and I’d miss her if she were dead. I would make it my sole purpose in life to comfort McDreamy if she kicks it, but I would still be sad to see her go. Remember the song that was playing when you had your hand on the bomb, Mer? Breathe…just breathe.

* If you don’t know why I’m calling Kyle Chandler then that means you don’t watch him on Friday Night Lights, and shame on you.

    YES! Gmmr i was so hoping that you post about tonight’s episode. I thought it was amazing. I think we share the same brain because i completely agree with everything you said. I knew Denny would be back but the guy from the bomb squad was an awesome surprise.

    I meant to put this in my post, but I forgot. I really don’t get why Izzie felt the need to tell George right there and then that she thinks him marrying Callie was a big mistake. It seemed odd and kind of hurtful.

  3. jodi on February 16th, 2007 1:57 am

    i agree, gmmr! that was so out of line for izzie–mer is dying, and she’s lecturing george about callie. and it wasn’t even a big mistake.

    sandra oh was great in the episode.

    they can’t kill mer, right? if they do, i don’t think i could ever watch again.

    Eh, I’m of the camp that finds Mer about the only intolerable thing about this show. I’m secretly hoping in my heart of hearts that they do kill her off. Does that make me a bad person?

    Izzie was so completely out of line about George marrying Callie, I don’t see how they’ll get past it. I’m biased because I love Callie- and George with Callie- but even if I weren’t that’s just cruel.
    Great episode! I so love Karev. And I am surprised that I like Meredith too! I don’t want her to die.

    I’ve resisted it vehemently but you and my friends at my gym have convinced me to watch Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve been watching it for about 3 weeks now and I’ve even got the first two seasons in my Netflix queue.

    Damn you people! I did NOT need another tv show! 😉

    Though I do agree with you, gmmr. What Izzie said was completely out of line and I was really disappointed. She and George are my favorite characters. Though that may change when I watch the first two seasons, I think it won’t. I feel their vibe more…or whatever. 😉

    Wow! I’m still reeling from last night’s episode. On some of the spoiler sites they say that (don’t worry, this doesn’t give anything away!) during the last of the 3-part episodes, Gray’s Anatomy will do the last thing you EVER thought they would do. You’re obviously supposed to think it’s killing off Meredith, but I think most likely Derek and McSteamy will patch things up (or something else less drastic). I was surprised that I found myself pulling for Meredith, too. I think this is opening the door for some life changes for Mer. Perhaps less whining and more focusing on being a doctor?? I can only hope and pray that there will be less whining. Did anybody else crack up about the whole Izzie “RockStar” thing? Too funny. Finally, I’m so glad they’re making Alex less of a tool. There’s a lot of back story there, and I hope we get to learn more about why he’s such a jerk sometimes.

    I just started liking Meredith when we saw what a b*tch her mom was…I felt for her. I’m rooting for her too! Although I wouldn’t mind spending any extra time with Coach Taylor!! An hour on Wednesday, and then another hour next Thursday sounds mighty fine to me.

    Actually, being in limbo with Denny and Dylan sounds kinda nice 🙂 I’m mean, come back to McDreamy, Mer!

    I was totally shocked at the ending last night and loved seeing Denny and Coach Taylor 🙂 back! I also knew that Denny was coming back sometime but didn’t even think it would be last night’s episode and I had no idea about Kyle Chandler’s character coming back – it was great. I really hope they both are a big part of the episode next week. I wonder if even more characters that have passed on from previous episodes showing up next week as well?

    I thought it was a really good episode but something has been bothering me. I don’t dislike Callie. I actually like her. Izzie’s speech was way out of line in that context, I think. What really bothers me is that in the first episode George was looking for the little boy. He stopped Callie and said I need help and she said “Not now George, I’m working. I don’t have time to be your wife right now.” Or something to that effect. When if she had just looked at the picture then she would have known that it was her boy she was fixing to go operate on. That kind of irked me.

    Also, how hot is the Coach? I had to watch it today at work on the computer and nearly melted when he did that little smile. I love that man.

    Oh come on people!

    I’m sorry, but I feel as though Grey’s has sort of jumped the shark…this bums me out because I really want to root for it but this whole Meredith dying thing is just so unrealistic on so many fronts. A) Its GREY’S anatomy…they aren’t going to get rid of Grey. Ellen Pompeo is the first person cited on the credits…they are not, I repeat, not going to kill her off. If they wanted to go down this road, they should have done it with another character…much more suspenseful B) That being said, its so unrealistic to have Meredith live after all that. I mean, underwater in the freezing pudget sound for 20 minutes? And she’ll pull through? I’m already mad at the writers for trying to get us to believe this and it hasn’t even happened. C) The whole limbo thing with Denny and the Pink Mist guy is just to appease viewers who felt like those characters were gone too soon.

    That being said, Alex and Addison (not necessarily their relationship…but those two characters) may be the only thing keeping me watching. I LOVE Alex’s character development…Also, another rant: I feel as though all the women on this show are just so selfish. Izzie…Christina…Meredith…Callie…I don’t admire or look up to any of them. Its sad when I think the strongest woman character also was portrayed as a cheating wife and as a bit of a whore.

    Ok…end rant 🙂 Anyone agree?

  12. TheNextKristin on February 16th, 2007 6:19 pm

    Question: do people usually grow mustaches after they die?

  13. faith on February 16th, 2007 7:00 pm

    seriously! i mean, after i read what kristin veitch wrote about it, i was like, “oh, they’re definitely gonna kill meredith.” but i didn’t really mind, ’cause she annoys me. but then when it actually happened, i was pretty much traumatized. i guess i don’t hate her after all. (=

  14. Mary on February 16th, 2007 7:53 pm

    Gotta agree with Lauren. The ladies on the show are all ridiculously self-absorbed. It kills me how Meredith will be asking Christina for advice,(or vice versa) and Christina won’t even acknowledge what Mer is saying, but will just talk completely about herself. Now that I think about it, they’re all pretty much like that. Lots of one-sided conversations. Anyway, I have started to like Meredith more since she faced off with her mom, and am hoping for some changes after the near-death experience. As for being underwater for that long…I asked my husband (he’s a doctor who usually rips the medical aspects of the show to shreds) says that, while it’s unlikely that she’d survive, it’s possible. The thing that kills him the most is that this HUGE hospital seems to be run entirely by about 10 surgeons! On a side note, is there a particular reason that everyone hates Callie? I haven’t missed an episode, but I seem to have missed that info.

  15. Lauren on February 16th, 2007 8:00 pm

    Right Mary? Or how Meredith is supposedly dying by Izzie is making it about her and Denny…or about how Christina can’t find Meredith and she’s only worried about how she won’t have someone to chat about her problems too…or how Callie is always mad about George not sticking up for her, while never realizing that those girls are important friends in his life too…

  16. lovin' the flaws! on February 16th, 2007 10:57 pm

    I’ve been reading some of the previous posts about how selfish the characters are…personally, that’s why I keep watching, the characters are real, and have some major flaws. The show is about these people growing and becoming better people. If they start out wonderful there’s no where to go. Granted I chringe and hate it when they are making bad decisions, but how boring would it be if they were perfect?
    Thanks for such a great blog and its fun to read all the different reactions people have.

    IMHO, at first when Mer fell in the water in the last episode, I thought, how cheesy. Then, in this episode, when Derek pulled her out of the water and she was so dang BLUE, I totally bought it. All thoughts of cheesiness out the window. It felt so real. Then, when Derek teared up, I was done. I too, like GMMR, know in my heart that there’s no way that Mer is going to die. But I was completely shaken up by it, even though I know she will be okay. To me, that is amazing writing and acting. Maybe I’m gulliable, but I loved it.

    While I thought Izzie’s comment to George was harsh, I thought it was appropriate in the context of her speech. I think there will be ramifications for saying it, but I don’t think she said anything that was surprising to George or anyone. Bravo!

  18. Mary on February 17th, 2007 7:57 am

    I absolutely agree that cringing at the bad decisions is what makes the show fun, but I guess I had just assumed that people who are closer to 30 would be over the high school aged selfishness. I just find myself thinking “Who would want to be friends with Mer or Christina” a lot of the time. And I have to agree with “distracted” that Izzie’s comment was appropriate in that context, but it was just so innapropriate at the time. “So, yeah, I know our friend is probably dying in there, but I think you totally screwed up by marrying that chick. Just thought you should know.” But, after all is said and done, the flaws and selfishness must not bother me too much b/c I never miss a show!

    You people do know that Grey’s Anatomy is actually the name of a medical text book.
