About Last Night...SUPERSTORE, GREY'S ANATOMY, A MILLION LITTLE THINGS, and More - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

GREY’S ANATOMY – “Love of My Life” – Richard preps to present his PATH pen at the LA Surgical Innovation Conference but becomes distracted by his issues with Catherine. Maggie and Teddy run into people from their past at the same conference, while Hayes relives moments from when he met his late wife, on an all-new episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, MARCH 26 (9:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Tony Rivetti)

Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!SUPERSTORE: Not to prematurely point to the spoilery interview done about the episode, but I kept thinking how absolutely unsettling the Carol stuff was. So when director Ben Feldman mentioned he specifically was leaning into the horror tone, it all made sense.

But, uh, it feels like a VERY bad idea to have Carol back at the store? And how is she not working a different shift than Sandra, at the very least?? [For more on Feldman, here’s what he said pre-air about his second go-round directing and then the post-air comments.]

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: Man, this episode made me happy. J.K. Simmons was a fun guest star, and the team trying to figure everything out together was delightful. The show is almost always at its best when the cast is riffing with each other.

GREY’S ANATOMY: Man, I really wish I liked this episode more. Maggie’s storyline was light and fun (until it very quickly wasn’t), but it’s long felt like the show struggles to know exactly how to handle her. McWidow, who I like a lot, it didn’t really feel like we learned anything new, beyond seeing the struggle itself.

Teddy…look, I love Teddy. What she’s done in the past few episodes has been really rough. And the challenges of knowing a character for like a decade, even if they weren’t on-screen the entire time, is that it’s hard to do a reveal that big and not have it feel very odd it never came up before. The fact that Teddy and Allison (whom she named her daughter after) were in love sure was a curveball. But the fact that she was living with Allison’s girlfriend and they were having an affair behind her back? Yikes. Yikes, yikes, yikes. Love is messy, but it felt like this was done to justify her confused feelings about Tom and Owen and it just made it look like this was her pattern.

As for Richard, as soon as Catherine showed up, I went, “Oh, God, they’re Izzie-ing him.” (AKA he’s seeing people who aren’t there.) I thought he’d collapse on stage, but, yeah, somehow what they did was worse. I can’t see them losing him now that they’re down to only three original stars, but it certainly feels like if half of the current cast was to leave whenever the season ends, I wouldn’t be surprised. (I don’t want that, but it feels like a lot of them are getting “final season [for them]” arcs.)

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Eesh, what a mess. Despite the company being taken down, I’m glad they didn’t sugar coat that things could just go back to normal for the dancer whose involuntary sex tape kicked things off; you can’t put the figurative genie back in the bottle.

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: Well, I absolutely expected Eve’s dangerous boyfriend to be what jeopardized Rome and Regina’s adoption. I honestly didn’t see her changing her mind coming. What an absolute heartbreaker. And I don’t know how they recover from that in the near-future.

I was also pleasantly impressed with Darcy/Gary/Maggie, because I did think the season was leading to Gary and Maggie reuniting. If they did, the way it was set up by the end, I don’t know it would have felt as earned. I don’t know if I really believe Darcy and Gary will go the distance—mostly due to the reality of television and large ensemble casts—but at least they’re giving them a real chance.

As for the Eddie thing…I don’t know anything beyond what series creator DJ Nash teased, but I’m wondering if they’re setting up Eddie being physically changed (either paralyzed or losing a limb) in the aftermath of his accident. Maybe this will bite me when the show returns, but I just don’t believe they’d kill off Eddie. [Read more from Nash about the finale.]
