I interrupt my mommy blogging to talk about the season finale of Grey's Anatomy.
If you have not yet seen Grey's, I really don't want to ruin it for you, so stop reading now. Are you gone yet? Okay, good.
Let's talk Grey's, people.
Did you not totally freak out last night? I was totally freaked. And up until 1 a.m., because I didn't start watching until 11, because of course my boys went to bed late last night. So yeah, I'm on not a lot of sleep here, so bear with me on this rather long post about Grey's.
All week, I was preparing myself for the worst. I was going to be strong. I was assuming that Izzy might die. I was assuming that George would leave the show. I just didn't know how the amazing writers would make it all come together.
So, I watched. And at first, I was relaxed. I could deal. I was strong. I was ready for anything. Er... no, I wasn't. Because holy smokes, the last 2 minutes of Grey's? Totally blew me away. Seriously? I didn't expect that ending.
Was it the most emotional episode of Grey's? You bet.
Derek and Mer were super cute and when they signed their vows on Post-It notes, it was romantic. They were married. They're in love, and they're happy. Okay, great. Happiness for them. Happiness too, for Owen and Cristina. They were awesome last night. Totally great. Yay for them, too. Such chemistry.
As for the rest of Seattle Grace? Hmm. Not so much.
Okay, let's talk about George. What was the big shocker with George? He decided to join the Army! I was shocked, especially the scene when the "Doctor" goes in to the recruitment centre, because we all thought it was going to be Owen, (at least I did) but nope, it was George! And that did shock me. I loved how he told Bailey, too. Cute scene. I was warming up to him again. He really is good for the show. So, I was happy that he wasn't going to be killed off; rather, he was just going 'away.'
Or so I thought.
Now let's talk about Izzy and Alex. Izzy decided to have her surgery. Even though there was a chance she would lose her memory. Well, she survived her surgey. Phew. She asks if her tumour is gone. Yes, they tell her. She's happy. But, uh-oh. She asks again. They tell her again. And so on. So, Izzy now has short-term memory loss. And I could deal with that. Because I assumed it would get better. When Alex totally freaked on her? "I'm not the one with a carrot for a brain, but I'm married to it because of some crock of a wedding that we walked into, and only because the two of us thougth you'd be dead within a week..." Wow.. that was intense. I hated Alex. But I loved him, too. I felt his pain for Izzy. And then: "Did you forget yet?" "Nope." Loved it. So saw that coming. But hoorah! Izzy's memory is back... but oh, no... this can't be good. No happy ending here.
In the midst off all this, there is a trauma case in the ER - an unidentified man is rushed in, because he saved a girl's life by running in front of a bus to get her out of harm's way. Turns out, he was dragged quite a bit by the bus, and badly injured. His face, a bloody mess. Everyone is trying to save him.
No one could see where this was going... this was the real shocker of the night. The man eventually writes something in Mer's hand, with his fingers... 0-0-7... "Double 0-7... double 0-7.. Oh my God... George!" Mer screams. Totally the best scene of the night. Totally, totally blew me away. I was freaking out!
At the same time, Alex apologizes to Izzy, and tells her he loves her and then they hug. AND I KNEW that as they hugged, something would go wrong. Izzy coded.
So now, George and Izzy are almost dead. George AND Izzy. Everyone is trying to save them. Emotions really running high here. And then we see Izzy in the elevator, wearing her 'prom dress'... doors open... and George (in an Army uniform) is waiting for her. The way they were looking at eachother - wow. But then - a look of surprise appears on their faces. Does this mean they are both dead? Or is only one of them dead? If so - who? WHO DIED LAST NIGHT? What a cliffhanger... seriously!
Has there even been more drama in a two minute period on TV ever before?
Brilliant season finale. I loved it, just as much as I hated it. I don't want either of them to leave the show. Sadly, I know at least one of them will die.
Here is a little Q & A from The Ausiello Files with Shondra Rhimes:
Do you know which one of them lives and which one of them dies?
RHIMES: Yes. And I don't know that you should be saying 'which one of them lives and which one of them dies." I know what happens to the characters.
And with that, dear friends, I've got nothing left to say. I will enjoy my summer. But I am also totally looking forward to the fall so I can find out what the heck is going to happen with these 2 characters!
What did you think about it last night? Any insight? Who do you think dies?
