First off dear readers, I’m going to need a little assistance today, as unfortunately I missed the final minute or two of last night’s phenomenal episode of GREY’S ANATOMY. Thanks to the ridiculous way Canadian Television works, I ended off with Meredith hugging her Mom, did anything else happen?
Putting my scheduling snafu aside, I would like to proclaim last night’s episode of GREY’S the best of the season. Truth be told, I’ve been finding GREY’S a little formulaic lately. A patient comes in and through his or her troubles, Meredith and the Doctor’s learn a little bit more about themselves. Each week was almost evolving into a very special episode of FAMILY TIES.
With last night’s episode, our noble doctor’s learned more about themselves, but not via their patients, through their interactions with each other. Dr. Bailey and McDreamy (Great pep talk Bailey), Izzie and McSteamy (“I don’t do coffee”), Dr. Bailey and the Chief (“You raised them like children”), George and Burke (Burke narrating George’s father’s surgery), Christina and Burke (Christina joining Burke on the elevator at the end of the episode)… well you get the idea. Pretty much every character had a nice moment to end 2006 on a positive note. The only downside — the wait until January until new episodes. Holiday reruns, Ba-Hambug!
