About Last Night...SUPERSTORE, GREY'S ANATOMY, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, and More - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

GREY’S ANATOMY – “Snowblind” – Meredith and Carina question DeLuca’s uncharacteristic behavior when he volunteers to perform a life-threatening task during a blizzard. Meanwhile, Bailey tries to help Joey with his future, while Richard trains a new intern at the hospital on an all-new episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, FEB. 27 (9:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on ABC. (ABC/John Fleenor)

Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

SUPERSTORE: Oh, this episode made me happy. In some ways, it’s odd, because it wasn’t a particularly big episode—wasn’t a wedding, a holiday, etc.—but this felt like it was, in many ways, a love letter to the show. There were callbacks to a number of things, including Dina inexplicably calling Amy “Rodriguez” and Glenn being the co-signer on Cheyenne and Bo’s home, which always makes my continuity-loving heart happy.

I am side-eying the reporter a little bit, though, because it feels like something bigger could be in the works. Her specifically feeding lines for Amy to parrot back isn’t ethically responsible—and yes, I know journalists on TV aren’t always ethically responsible, so I initially wrote it off as them being fast and loose—but her then insisting on taking the photo of Amy and Cheyenne? Hmm…

(Also, Jerry mad? Hahahahahhahaha.)

[Delayed, but last week BONES’ Emily Deschanel did a brief cameo on SUPERSTORE. Here’s how that came to be.]

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: I’m glad the Nine-Nine was able to figure out what was going on with Debbie so fast. I’m torn on the episode, because I didn’t super love the Debbie twists, the episode itself was really funny? Amy and Holt’s speed-reading competition was hilarious. And even the “babe” jokes with Debbie and Jake made me laugh. I just wish the resolution had been a little more grounded.

WILL & GRACE: This was in no way intentional, but Karen and Phil immediately “babe”-ing each other right after that was a thing on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE was a hilariously accidental through line.

I don’t, personally, need Karen to end up with a partner by the time the series ends, so I’m curious where they do end up taking Joel McHale’s character. On one hand, it would be on-brand to add a famous guy to be a seemingly end game love interest. But Phil also seemed like a chronological liar, so…


I’m going to start with the figurative elephant in the room: I have no idea how the heck they plausibly get out of the Alex situation. I don’t know if you watch horror films, but this feels like we’re in the moment when the person realizes they’re in danger—and there’s probably ominous music playing—and the audience is just holding their breath, waiting to see how bad the kill is.

Now, I don’t think Alex will be literally killed. (If they were going to kill him off, why not just keep him with his mother and in contact with Jo—off-screen—so it at least they didn’t destroy the marriage before he was written off?) But it feels like things are about to get very, very, very bad, and the question is just how brutal it’s going to be.

I found myself frustrated with other aspects of the actual episode, though, unfortunately. The Beanie Feldstein twist was a great moment…but it also made all of the characters look pretty dumb for not realizing what was going on.

I don’t even know what to say about Teddy/Tom/Owen/Amelia/Link at this point. Teddy shouldn’t have gone to Tom, but good God, man. Maggie is the worst secret-keeper. The sad thing is they had two fascinating couples in Teddy/Owen and Link/Amelia, one very long-earned (plus, likely one of the longest will they/won’t theys in TV history given how slow that burn was??) and the other an absolutely pleasant surprise. I just don’t know how they’re going to bring either duo back from this, and that is an absolute bummer.

However, I am loving Meredith and McWidow. I’m excited to see where the show takes them.

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Speaking of continuity, I’m glad Olivia mentioned her brother’s (still recent!) death in the context of Amanda dealing with her sibling who was struggling with addiction.

But, uh, yikes to the Rollins family. Kim is a mess and their father is even worse. I absolutely get why Amanda wouldn’t entirely cut them out of her life, but what a mess. And given their dad disappeared and it seems like Kim isn’t bolting, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be over any time soon. (But kind of crazy Kim had a kid and didn’t even tell Amanda?)

I get Hadid’s gamble paid off, but am I the only one who is a little wary of her now? The move felt pretty underhanded and selfish.

[And in case you missed it, SVU got renewed for a truly bonkers three seasons.]

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: FINALLY. I can’t express how relieved I was that Delilah finally acknowledged she loved Eddie. Look, that relationship was messy, messy, messy; I’m not actively advocating they reunite. But everyone had been in triage mode for so long about containing the damage the relationship did—to their friendships, Eddie’s marriage, to their respective kids—that it felt like it wasn’t really acknowledged by those closest to them that, uh, yeah, they were in love. They were going to leave their spouses and start a relationship together. And in the context of an affair like this, it does actually matter they didn’t just blindly betray Jon (and Katherine) because of lust.

It feels like Gary and Maggie will reunite by the end of the season (that’s not in any way a spoiler, just a feeling), but I’m curious at this point which one of them will figuratively blink and admit they want to reunite.

The Eve situation…eesh. I hope Rome and Regina don’t totally have their hearts broken.

    Couldn’t agree more about Grey’s. I am pretty over Owen’s relationship issues, and having Teddy go to Tom was ridiculous. Really don’t understand how they make the Karev situation make any sense, though I’m saying this about a show that had him go to jail then be Chief like 2 minutes later so…*shrugs*. I am definitely Team McWidow.

    @Liz: Okay, I laughed at the jail-to-Chief comment because that IS true. I really hope they have a figurative rabbit to pull out of their hat that can make this, somehow, OK. I really hope they’re able to write him off and respect his relationships with both Jo and Meredith. But I’m worried.
