Did you even think it was possible that this story could go on? It's impressive that they did and I don't think it was even that forced or cheesy. It took me two days to watch it, and it got better each time I returned to my DVR.
Is anyone else sort of embarrassed about how sad they are about Derek? Last night was tough and after having rewatched it again, I can tell you: don't do it. It's just as awful. So, let's have a Twitter memorial
So Owen and Amelia break up sort of. Richard and Catherine duke it out and end up in love again. Some guy's penis gets cut off and the residents save the day. But that's not important because where is Derek!?
Herman stares at the clouds -- before her scans and in real life, on the grass, wondering what will become of her. Her doubts are not about Amelia's ability to operate. Amelia can beat herself up just fine, thank you.
I will not even front: I sat, mouth agape, during that entire last scene. I know, I know, I always want people to just go, go, and do what they want. Be yourself! But not Derek! He doesn't get to just go.
Amelia gets outed as a recovering addict when some horrible woman recognizes her from NA. There was probably a better way to handle that, but the drama factor was upped 10 points. Derek jumps in -- not to save her, but to take the surgery, and maybe her job.
I will not even try to expound on the construction of this episode and how well they brought back Kate Burton, fit in the flashbacks, and made me feel sympathy for Meredith again. When was the last time you really felt for her, or like her?
sort of forgot that we were going to have to deal with this. Could anyone make sense of that opening flashback? I watched the clip of it on ABC's website about four times and I still don't understand -- did her mother try to kill herself?
