Discuss the latest (or even older) episodes of Shonda Rimes’ Grey’s Anatomy.January 27, 2017 at 10:09 am #3791
I was so close to being furious with last night’s premiere….really, no Karev?
But the episode pulled me in. I don’t particularly care for Jo. At all. She doesn’t hold a candle to any of Karev’s past loves. However, I wonder if Shonda wrote this prison scene to set the mental image in Jo’s head of what life would be like for Alex in prison.
And my mommy heart broke for that young girl as she called out for her mom. The conversation she had with her baby as she said goodbye was equally heartbreaking. Dang it, the show actually got me to cry after all.
Now let’s not drag out this storyline any further. It’s been dragged out long enoughMarch 2, 2017 at 4:38 pm #3933
True garbage season. I’ve invested so much time in the show and now I can’t bring myself to not finish it.
But what an awful season. Bailey, who I love, is unwatchable. Minnick needs to go – preferably by death. Jo, oh please, just no. There’s less and less focus on Grey and Karev, who are truly the only ones I care about.
Ugh, hope there’s something good for the rest of the season.March 10, 2017 at 12:01 pm #3997
Feel so awful for Chief Webber. He looks defeated, turned on and just flat out abused. I hope Shonda rights the ship by the end of the season. He looked battered at the end of this last episode.
And please let this be the true end to Japril. Never been a fan of hers and has always felt Jackson deserved better. Every time we get a glimpse of her strength, I feel like it all back pedals and her true nature comes out. It hasn’t felt genuine – her show of strength. It’s like she wants to believe she is, but she just isn’t.
Amelia and Owen – come on. Let the guy be happy and give Amelia the courage she needs. It’s so done already.January 29, 2018 at 11:55 am #4752
The April episode was deep – layers upon layers.
But first….I really wish I cared about Jo. I don’t hate her character. I see SOME growth in it. I think Karev needs a girl with a little more fire in her, a little more personality. She’s just there and I watch. But her storyline would have hit me more if I actually cared. It felt a little rushed and anticlimactic but oh well.
Bailey having that convo with her son in the end. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have to have that kind of talk with your son. The fact that it’s a reality for a parent to have that kind of conversation is heartbreaking.
Yikes – April’s voice over throughout the episode had me in tears at the end. The lifeless eyes in that last scene was heartbreaking. I’ve always had a hot and cold relationship with April. She irritated me so much in the beginning but then all the April-centric episodes left me rooting for her. Her character has gone through some of the biggest changes and I’ve grown to really like her character. Her questioning her faith and having it challenged was so so well done. You can see it weighing on her more and more throughout the episode.
I liked that we got to see April and Matt in a scene again. I always liked them as a couple and never truly embraced Japril. It was interesting to think about what might have been had she chosen the man of her faith. I think it would have grounded and inspired her in a different way. I would love a April-Matt revisit. I think she could help him through his grief as she knows & has experienced her own loss. And I think he could help her come to terms with her own demons and provide a light that’s been missing in her life for some time now.May 11, 2018 at 1:43 pm #4991
I am SOOO glad they didn’t kill of April. I’ve grown to love the nuances of her character and of all characters, she shows a growth & complexity, as well as an honesty.
I’m glad that she and Matthew ended up together. I never ‘shipped the Japril pairing. I always did like her and Matt – didn’t like how their wedding turned out. I would have liked to see their connection re-established on-screen as those would have been emotionally impactful.
After we see April’s survival, I was surprised at how much I cried in those last 15 minutes. I was really happy with how her and Matthew’s scenes played out in their simplicity. Arizona’s “They fell in love” radiated in those scenes where they wheeled him in. I really liked the simplicity of it because her happiness and connection did show in her face.
I even liked her scene with Maggie. Just another i dotted, knowing that she was moving on from an old chapter. I really liked Maggie’s passion in trying to help save her too. AND that she immediately knew that Jackson would want to be told. The Maggie/Jackson pairing is very polarizing but I’m not against it….but I really liked that Maggie understands the importance of April in Jackson’s life and isn’t trying to overshadow it.
Overall, great episode with an ending I could live with.May 24, 2018 at 11:11 am #5049
So so glad we didn’t have a dramatic death on the finale.
I, for one, was very happy to see April and Matt get their happy ending. I always liked them together. The actress really played April’s happiness as genuine and sure.
Meredith worrying about losing her “person” also got to me. I’m sure her and Alex will be fine but it was a great nod to their friendship. cue more tears.
Jo and Alex, never thought they would really work – but hey – they do. They’re not an iconic couple but just a nice, stable and fun one.
