It’s somewhat difficult to put into words the brilliance of last night’s episode of GREY’S ANATOMY, but it’s what I do so here it goes.
In order to combat the ridiculousness of ‘IsaiahGate’, creator Shonda Rhimes has clearly put her energy towards the only thing she could control — her show. Last night, Mrs. Rhimes and the entire Grey’s team delivered what in thisTVaddict’s opinion was the series best episode to date. Ever moment was poignant, every scene riveting and most importantly, every character had a moment to shine.
Izzie’s triumphant return to the O.R. (as theTVaddict screams at the TV — “Find Meredith!”). George searching for his missing kid. Alex coming up with a solution for identifying the missing/deceased patients (again I scream, “Meredith… she’s in the water!”). Alex telling Addison, “I’d notice… if you went missing” (Me again, “MEREDITH IS MISSING PEOPLE!”). Finally, Derek pulling Meredith out of the water (I can start breathing…) Addison’s look towards Derek, McSteamy consoling of Derek, Christina calling Meredith ‘Her person’, Izzie’s speech to George at the end of the episode, Dr. Bailey being her awesome self, pretty much the entire episode… and of course, an ending that had my jaw falling to the floor.
Not just Denny…. but Coach Taylor.. sorry Kyle Chandler as well! (Mabye now you’ll all give FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS a try). Can next Thursday come any sooner?
And yes, in case you’re wondering. This week’s episode more then makes up for last week’s over-rated ‘set-up’ episode. And no — for the record — I’m not under the illusion that Meredith’s actually dead. But you can’t argue that her ‘death’ sure does make for some compelling drama.
