Grey's Anatomy: Some Kind of Miracle



Okay, I sobbed like a baby through a lot of this episode. Only this show can do that to me. Okay, and Supernatural. I SOBBED. Not for Meredith, because, let's face it, the whole afterlife group therapy thing was hoky as hell and honestly, pretty lame.. And pretty much undercut whatever suspense and gravity from the whole "she still doesn't have a heartbeat" real life dilemma. But whenever the camera was on Derek, he was so RAW and broken. When Addison told him he couldn't fall apart, and he already was, GAH. And then he yelled at Ellis! Because he needs someone to blame because of course he feels guilty. Give this man an Emmy now. I'm serious. (Kiefer got his last year... )

And Cristina! *chokes and sobs* I'm sorry but when Cristina is crying and losing it I can't help but do the same. Big, choking sobs. She was crying. And Bailey left them alone. OMG, the face touching. If there are Cristina/Mer shippers, they must have died of joy.

And then when Meredith admitted she gave up, okay, I started to cry there too. And when her mom hugged her. I'm a big sap, okay? I admit it!

So, Derek will live with the guilt of (sort of) killing off her mother, but if Ellis hadn't died right then, then Meredith would not have had that moment with her mother. (Yes, the afterlife stuff was real, right? Because... Denny!) And Richard saying goodbye to Ellis. :-( I love that he loved her, even when she was ill. I love that this show is not just about the weepy interns but about the adults of the show. And mostly, I love this show, even when it has hokier than hoky dream/afterlife/near-death sequences.

The only thing I hate about it is Izzie. Whom I want to reach through the screen and CHOKE. WTF? That wasn't even an apology to George. So he's your friend, that does not give you the right to abuse him and his wife.

In conclusion: Me, big sobby puddle who loves Derek and Cristina more than words, and thus, Meredith by extension.

George choosing Callie over Izzie for the win!

I was so pissed at her, pulling that "I've been Meredith and George's friend longer than you have and you're not allowed to care about her so there" bullshit. I wanted to smack her. George is completely justified in treating her the way that he did because he's right. He needs her to be his friend and she's being a complete bitch to his wife. That may not mean much to her, but if she's half as good a friend to George as she seems to think she is, she should at least acknowledge that it means something to him. And she certainly shouldn't expect him to forgive you just because it's "them". What is that crap?

Denny was what made me cry, though (okay, sob). He was what made Izzy bearable. And I couldn't help but sob like nobody's business when he talked about feeling her when she's near, and at the end, the look on his face when he was right next to her. That wasn't about Izzy. That was about Denny. ;_; Nobody can make me cry like JDM can. Nobody.

Sadly, my all-consuming hatred of Izzie kind of ruined the Denny stuff when he was talking about sensing Izzie. Because she never deserved Denny, not even ghost Denny. And if he knows that Mere was suicidal, why does not not care and weigh in on what kind of crap Izzie is pulling? Ghost!Denny needs to give her a lecture on being a good friend and growing the fuck up. John Winchester would never stand for that kind of selfish crap!

But yes, god, Denny. I can't blame Meredith if she wanted to stay dead with Denny. But what he said, how her death would wreck Derek, that finally got through to her.

(And yes it's ridiculous that she's perfectly fine but hey, we all knew that's how it was going to end up!)

Christina will never fail to break my heart. Like...if SHE crumbles? I best do the same, or else be completely heartless.

I...I can't say I miss watching weekly. But Alex and Addison and DENNY and...oh lord, did I lose my shit. Like, heaving, gasping sobs. The cheif at the end??? I couldn't handle that, hormonally imbalanced or not. I just...waaay too much for me.

I swear, I am so so sick of that man breaking my heart. And yet...I can NEVER get enough. *obsessed*

Man, when I turned on my TV, the promo for last night's ep was paused and there was Cristina saying "Try. Again." and here I am crying again. GAH. This show really has some of the best actors out there. And the Chief! *sighs* I love that man too and he can always make me cry.

JDM -- I'm sorry that he had to love such an inferior woman here but he still gets me to choke up. I see someone's written a GA/SPN crossover I have to go read now!

My whole take on Izzie in these episodes is that she lost Denny, she was on the brink of losing Meredith, and then she's afraid of losing George beceause of Callie.

Derek looked awful. I never liked him more than in this episode. I was like "OMG!" when he was yelling at Ellis, but it was true.

I think I really started to hate Izzie when she was so judgmental of Cristina when -- HELLO -- Izzie killed Denny! And she put everyone else's career in jeopardy when they covered for her. That was just so horribly hypocritical of her. She's just so damn selfish. I know she's never liked Callie and maybe George did make a mistake but it is SO not Izzie's place to keep saying so. And the business with the check just drove me nuts too. I don't see why she's still practicing medicine after Denny. I don't see why they all forgave her. To me, what she did was completely unforgivable and she just keeps doing unforgivable things! She's just digging herself deeper and deeper in and I have to wonder if Shonda *wants* us to hate her. There is no way I can ever like her again. Just NO way. She's selfish and spoiled and bratty and pretty much the worst friend ever. And the way she keeps using "Denny Died!" as an excuse for her bad behavior makes it even worse! She didn't deserve Denny.

Okay, end of rant!

I'm glad you liked Derek in this episode. I think PD is just an amazing actor but he isn't often called on to do much. I read an interview with him where he admitted to being kind of frustrated with his role and the way it's written. And man, I wonder if he's going to be wracked with guilt over Ellis's death now or if that's just going to go away.

I swear to God, every freaking week. Every freaking week this show makes me cry at some point. Or at least tear up in a major way. Shonda, you're killing me!

How long until Callie decides to kick Izzie's ass? I generally like Izzie, but she's going about being George's friend in the wrong way right now. I love that George was able to tell her that in a pretty clear but gentle way. Somehow she totally didn't get his point, though.

I wonder if they're ever going to clear up the mystery of Alex's Jane Doe? I hope she gets a happy ending after all this.

Oh. My. God. Cristina was heartbreaking. Seriously. The scene in the bar killed me and then she went into the room and held Meredith's feet. That's the same thing I did when my dad was in the hospital. I held his feet. I don't know why, but it was reassuring. When Cristina did it, it totally got me going.

Hey, did you know that Marti Noxon is knocking around Grey's land right now? I adore her! I'm hoping they bring her on permanently!

Oh, they always get me too. Even the Amish girls -- I was like Will. Not. Cry. And I totally did.

Izzie is SO out of line. I don't know what it's going to take to her her to see how beastly she's been acting but I'm past the point of wanting to see her come around. I'd prefer it if George and Callie and everyone else just shunned her for life. But I guess that can't happen! She completely deserves it, though.

And Jane Doe will be a continuing story. We'll definitely see more of her. I think they're leading into a romance with her and Alex, which sucks because I like Addison and Alex! Although maybe they won't consummate that now if she and Mark are back on.

Cristina just broke my heart into little pieces. And the feet was such a real life detail. (How is your dad? Is he still with you?)

And ha, Marti Noxon! I can't say yay or nay on her myself, but she's so universally hated in the Buffy fandom for those last two terrible years! I didn't know she had any fans! I don't think those last two seasons were all her fault, but I think a large chunk of Buffy viewers decided she was the devil. Didn't she come up with Riley? And was so upset when people didn't love him? (Although that was, what, the 4th season? Adam and all? I have to say, I love how you can remember and entire Buffy season by that year's Big Bad. If only other shows were so easy.)

Oh, yeah, my dad's still here. He had a minor stroke in September. So scary! We were really lucky that we got him to the hospital immediately. The only lasting damage is that he gets more tired and has taken to napping in the afternoon. I figure the guy's 82. He's earned some naps!

Oh, Riley. So boring. Yep, that was season 4. The Adam Season. I have such a hard time reviling any whole season of that show. Even in the midst of fairly dismal seasons (*cough*six*cough) there are flashes of brilliance. Like Tabula Rasa and Once More with Feeling. I wonder what ever happened to Jane Espenson? She wrote some of my favorite Buffy eps.

Oh wow, glad to hear your dad's still around. And at 82 that's gotta be pretty rare. I'd say he has earned his naps indeed.

Ah, Riley. I did feel for the guy, dull as he was I felt bad when he realized Buffy didn't love him. And you're right, there were great eps in S6. I can't remember a single good episode from the last season though. I did kind of like mad!Spike with the grown-out h air at first. But the Ubervamps? The preacher or whatever? I spent all of that season yelling at the TV "Just get a flame thrower! Get that damn military gun you used on the Judge!" And all those damn potentials could not have been more annoying. Buffy is maybe the only show I ever watched to the bitter end. Angel, yes, that too, but I'd skipped a lot of the Cordy/Connor eps. *shudders* Anyway, when Buffy was great, it was the best damn show. Nothing can ever match "Becoming."

And hey, speaking of Angel, do you watch Bones? I didn't like it first but it's really grown on me now.

Hey, same here! Mr. Btch and I watched the first episode, thought "meh" and didn't watch any more. Then we decided to give it another chance this season and are completely addicted. LOVE it! Such great writing and excellent characters! I'm so glad David landed somewhere good, aren't you?

I am glad that Bones got better because I was sad for David there at first! But it's clicking along. I'm not loving the therapy storyline because Iike Bones & Booth together but overall, so much better than at first.
