WARNING: IF YOU ARE A GREY'S FAN AND HAVE NOT WATCHED THE FINALE, STOP READING NOW. IF YOU ARE NOT A GREY'S FAN, KEEP READING IF YOU WISH BUT YOU MAY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
I don't really watch a lot of TV but I must admit I have a few shows I like to keep up with. This being my second post in a row about TV I'm sure you won't believe me that I do not watch a lot - but seriously, it's the truth. So, Lost and Grey's are *my* shows. Both had their season finales this week.
And now, I just need to ask, am I the ONLY one who did NOT see that coming? I spent the first hour wondering to myself "Seriously? Is this ALL they've got?" In honesty, I was quite disappointed. I was not on the edge of my seat. I was not dying to see what happened in the second hour. I was not anxiously anticipating the next trauma.
Then the second hour came along. It got a little bit better, but I was still not overly impressed. Okay, so they've got one semi-interesting trauma case but not nearly as action packed as last week's multi-trauma (or so I thought). Izzie's had the surgery, her memory's botched but they're working on it. George is enlisting, so be it. They want to stop him, chief says he left in the morning to be with his mom. STILL DID NOT SEE IT COMING.
And then, the last 10 minutes of the episode happened. Seriously, I'm sitting there, jaw dropped to the floor. The fabulous dude said a few times during the episode that he thought the John Doe might end up being someone that they knew, but I wasn't convinced. And certainly neither of us suspected it was sweet George. When he kept trying to write on her hand I thought that he was going to tell her that the girl pushed him in front of the bus or something. Wowza! So, please tell me, am I the only one? Did anyone figure out that it was George?
Some other points and highlights:
~ Who else cried like a baby when they were wheeling Izzie into surgery at the end of the first hour and she explained to Alex why she signed the DNR and then they had their sweet kiss?
~ Who else was disappointed that they didn't show anything from in the operating room? Straight from that kiss scene to all of them sleeping in her room? I thought that was lacking.
~ What did we all think about Derek and Mer's post-it note ceremony? I wasn't pumped although I did like the significance of the post-it's that Christina gave to her.
~ Loved the scene between Meredith and Christina when Mer says "I love you Christina Yang" and they do that awkward hug.
~ I was madly impressed by Alex's and Bailey's acting skills in all of their emotional scenes. I have been saying for a while now that I think the chief and Bailey will end up together. Anyone with me?
~ I also do appreciate the significance of George stepping out last week to help Izzie down the aisle and then them "going to the other side" together. Their connection seems to have remained strong throughout all the seasons, regardless of situations. Although, I'm still not convinced that they are both going to be dead. We'll see.
I think that's all I've got, but I'd love to hear what any other fans out there are thinking. Mostly I just need some reassurance that I am not completely daft and that everyone else in the world did not suspect that John Doe was George.
