Grey's Anatomy, Beautiful Doom - Season 9 - 5 Postmortem

Our favourite medics returned for Beautiful Doom a few weeks ago; with the much talked about Meredith and Cristina centric episode of Grey's Anatomy. I loved it and there were times that I hated it. Anyway I'll cover that as we go through the episode. My apologies for my tardiness in posting this review, I was moving house yet again; long story. 

Photo by http://ladylavendersays.blogspot.com

Totally loved the first scenes with Meredith trying to potty-train Zola; and later she is on the phone to Cristina and Zola pees all over her. That would so totally happen; lot's of toddlers do that; especially boys. Cristina walking out side her apartment building or hotel or where ever it is she is living, and her car is covered in snow. And then Dr Thomas saves her bacon and picks her up for work. I was really getting to love their friendship, until he dropped dead on the OR floor, and the thing was, I knew it was coming. Will this be what makes Cristina return to Seattle. Yes; I know she turned up at the end; but I don't know that she is staying, I was under the impression she showed because she needed her person and also needed to get drunk enough to have to courage to get on a plane, which is so totally what I would do, had I gone through what she did. However two more episodes have gone to air in the US and I have yet to watch these episodes due to my hasty move back to Canberra; but according to a fellow Grey's addict friend of mine and various recaps, it appears that Cristina is indeed back at Seattle. 

Pic from Episode 6; Second Opinion; are the blue scrubs a giveaway?

While I'm happy to have her back in Seattle Grace scrubs; I am pissed at Shonda for killing off Dr Thomas. Why on earth did there have to be a tragedy to send Cristina scurrying back to her person in Seattle? Couldn't Dr Thomas simply retire? It was obvious that Cristina did not like it in Minnesota and felt as though she would never feel at home there. Dr Thomas did not have to keel over from a heart attack for Cristina to realise that he was the only good thing keeping her at the Mayo clinic. The cardio fellowship may have been the best program in the country, but the point that Cristina's career is not the only thing she cares about could have been made by having Dr Thomas retire to sunny Florida or something along those lines. It's all drama, drama, drama with Ms Shonda Rhimes, tragedy and pain. Don't get me wrong, I love Shonda and I love Grey's Anatomy and will be with it until the final episode, however I am getting tired of all the angsty drama. 

Apart from that criticism, I loved the episode and I still feel as though Season 9 is going to be great. I recently heard that Meredith and Derek are going to find out that Meredith is pregnant soon, so I am over the moon about this story. 

Not many of the other characters featured in this episode; Derek was seen telling Meredith he would take Zola to daycare and then get the train. I assume this is because he too, is freaked out about flying. Loved Owen and Zola, so cute. The interns trying to convince Meredith they are not babysitters or nannies. Totally loved Meredith's crush injury patient storyline; I was holding back the tears during this entire story as it too reminded me so much of Lexie and that fateful day. The scenes where we simultaneously saw Cristina and Meredith going about their business were not good. It may have been a fault with the live stream I was watching, but the sound during those shots was awful. It maybe a different story when I watch the episode on DVD when it comes out. Alex and April with Zola was pretty cute too.

All in all this was again another great instalment of Grey's, and it only makes me more excited for the next episodes to come. I must try to watch them over the weekend and get up to date with my reviews. However it's not an easy thing when you are basically forced to move three hours away with not much notice.

I'll be back soon to review "Second Opinion" as soon as I've had a chance to watch it. In the meantime get in touch via the comments here and have your say or follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

Grey's Anatomy - I Saw Her Standing There Season 9 - 4 Postmortem

Grey's Anatomy - I Saw Her Standing There; Aired in the US 25 Oct 2012, and in Australia on 30 Oct 2012. There will be another break in the US and here in Australia due to US election stuff being on TV. The next Grey's Anatomy episode; "Beautiful Doom" will be shown in the US on Nov, 8, 2012 and in Australia on Nov 13, 2012.

Well I have to say after watching the other night I am so disappointed with the writers about Cristina's new sex-friend. Yuck; I don't like him, they have no chemistry; just Yuck. Last night's episode was the first where I actually wanted to throw things at the TV. However, this turn of events (Cristina's obvious need to indulge in casual sex) was probably the worst of it. The rest of the episode was pretty good.

Cristina's new sex buddy, not for long however

The so-called affair with Dr Parker was probably over before it started once Cristina cottoned on to his plans to get rid of Dr Thomas. Obviously Cristina is not okay with her colleague and superiors' underhanded methods to force Dr Thomas to retire and I'm not surprised. I have never known Cristina to be okay with being used, and I certainly don't believe that she would support such sneaky, back-stabbing tactics. The part that I really enjoyed was when she and Dr Thomas were at a bar, and he explained that he knew what they were up to, and showed her the cheap watch he was given a few years back as a hint to retire. He explains to Cristina the only reason he wears it, is to passively and aggressively rub it in their faces. So it would seem that Cristina now has his back, given that she helped him out during the heart procedure they performed together. Can she bring him to Seattle Grace, if she has to come back there? Why should she come back, Owen should go there and fight to get his wife back. Just a thought.

Arizona and Callie's story progressed this week and in a real way, it was nice to see Arizona smile. I loved David, and I cannot think where in the heck I've seen him before. Can anyone help with that? He looks so familiar to me. It was nice that Arizona reached out to Callie at the end. They've a long way to go, but I have hope that they will be okay. The scene between Arizona and Alex was very touching too; I just hope that Alex gets a decent story this season, I always did enjoy him and Arizona working together, but I'm also wondering what will happen when she finds out that Alex was the one who cut off her leg. It seems as though Callie is letting Arizona think that she did it. 

Derek's moment in the gallery with Owen when he tells him that Meredith is bubble wrapping him was cute and I really loved Owen's speech and his speech also worked for Callie too. But he really must think that Cristina is lost to him if he can say to Derek that she's not coming back. What was with Owen going to stay at the trailer? He has a home; it's not like Cristina sold the place they were living at. And I enjoyed seeing Derek the teacher, it was a refreshing change. I have to wonder whether he will operate again in the near future or will his career revert to teaching other's. Let's face it, he is a world class surgeon, top of his field; he would have so much he could pass onto the younger surgeons.

I am torn about Katherine and Richard. I like Debbie Allen and the character of Katherine Avery, however I really miss Adele and I'm wondering when Shonda is going to re-visit what's going on with Adele. Loretta Devine is a fabulous actress, and I love all of her scenes on Grey's, so the hope is that we will get to see where Adele is at with her illness soon. And again I'm a little tired of Jackson and April's nonsense. 

Bailey and Meredith's banter over her once in a lifetime tumor was funny. It's like the shoes on the other foot now. When they were interns and residents, they had to beg to even be allowed inside the OR, now Meredith can simply tell Bailey she's not stealing her surgery. While it was funny to see the shoe on the other foot; I had to wonder, wouldn't the head of the department have the final say on who took that surgery. But really; it's Shondaland, since when do they follow protocol.

So what did you think of 'I Saw Her Standing There?' Is this season shaping up to be better than past seasons? Have you say right here in the comments or get on Facebook or Twitter to talk about it.

Love The One You're With - Grey Anatomy Season 9 - 3: Post-Mortem

The third installment of of Grey's Anatomy Season 9 didn't top the first two of the Season, however 'Love the One You're With' came close. And ratings in the US are still higher than what they were at this point in the Season last year. 

For the most part I enjoyed "Love the One You're With." Along with the seriousness of the law suit, there were moments of really well acted comedy; especially the scene with Meredith and Jackson in the scrub-room. The moment where Jackson tells Meredith that his mother is bonked the Chief was classic, especially Meredith's face before Jackson tells her it's Dr Webber he's referring to, not Owen. The April re-virginising story had me cringing and I would think most people who are Christian or Catholic or anyone who worships Jesus would have felt insulted by this arc. They are using April's love for Jesus as comedy. As someone who was raised with strict religious beliefs it just does not sit well with me. And why were Jackson and April on my screen so much. I could not give a diddly squat about what happens to them. Why is April there at all? Sarah Drew, the actress is actually very talented, so either give her better material Shonda, or fire her now, because April's story sucks at the moment and for mine, it makes a mockery of Christian beliefs. As for Jackson, well at least he's nice to look at, but where are the writers going with his story; not that I really care, but it just feels like he still does not have a purpose, especially now that Mark is gone. At least in Season 8 we got to see the 'plastics posse' in action, and part of that action was the awesome and sexy McSteamy, but he's gone now, so where are they going with Jackson?


Apart from April and Jackson overkill, I loved the phone calls between Cristina and Owen, it would seem that they are both unable to let go. And then Cristina towards to end telling Owen that they cannot do this anymore and to have the lawyers contact her regarding the settlement. The settlement part of this episode had me very confused as I'm unsure as to why they decided not to take it. Perhaps they think they can get more money if they go on with legal action. But it seemed as though everyone was offered a generous amount of money. 

I guess I did not like the whole 'it has to be unanimous' because you would think that every individual involved in the plane crash would be offered a separate settlement agreement. If you compare say Meredith who was virtually unharmed, and Arizona who lost a leg, or Mark who is dead, then there would be separate agreement for all the victims of the crash. And I also did not like that no-one stood up for Lexie. Meredith never once said that she was there on Lexie's behalf. But that's just my nit picky mind, it just goes there. What really concerns me is whether they will just gloss over the fact that Meredith lost her sister or will we see her deal with that grief. I really hate it when the writers abort a story-line and we do not see the outcome of it. Another issue that I had and many fans did too, was Derek being allowed to go look at the plane, that just would not have happened in real-life. But I guess we are meant to suspend our belief because it's a drama TV series.

I am so loving Cristina and Dr Thomas; and I don't want to see Cristina back in Seattle anytime soon. I would actually love it if Owen went there to try and win her back and stayed there permanently, so far this dual location thing is working for me, except the stupid snow storms in Minnesota. They do happen; don't get me wrong, but not all the time and especially not so much in Sept/Oct which is where we are supposed to be time-wise. And if I'm wrong and it's supposed to be July/August then it is even more ridiculous given that it would be summer or late summer. Cristina and Dr Thomas in that last scene, were awesome, I loved it. I'm not sure why he is carrying around a pack of cigarettes, that was not explained; but it was kind of funny when he told Cristina that everything kill us (I can't remember his exact words). It seemed as though he was trying to make a point and then decided against it.

Callie and Arizona's scenes were great this week too and actually like what they are doing with this story, I just pray the writers do it justice. I also loved Callie's banter with Alex regarding his whoring around, and her speech to the intern who was flirting with her. However I do agree with many posters on the forums who said she should have told the intern she was married before giving the speech. The parents of the patient with the severed foot asked Callie to keep their daughter in the hospital, because she was going to off sailing again regardless of the damage it would do. Callie told them that they have to be the bad guys here because they are her parents; it was so obvious she was referring to her own life. Especially when she was confronted with Arizona on the floor of the bathroom sitting in her own pee. That shower scene had me in tears and that's when I feel the writers are getting things right. If I'm laughing, crying or holding my breath then it's working for me. If I am throwing things or shouting at the TV, then it's not working.

Meredith and Jackson in the scrub room was probably the funniest scene I've seen on Grey's in a long time, which gives me hope for this season and a possible friendship between Jackson and Meredith. I would dig that, as long as they don't end up sleeping together, then that's okay with me. I also loved Bailey's post it notes and the scene when she overhears Jackson and April talking, the look on Bailey's face is just priceless.

Overall a great episode. If I had to criticise anything it would be too much April. Perhaps if she got a decent story instead of making a mockery of Christianity for comedy's sake then I may be able to take this character seriously, but so far I cannot and she has been on my TV screen for over three years. And last, but not least; don't you just love the McMansion? It's taken 5 seasons, and finally Derek and Meredith are living in their dream house. I totally loved the scene with Derek sitting outside with the view of Seattle behind him.

Patrick Dempsey Interview With Ausiello - A Grey's Anatomy Movie?

Recently Michael Ausiello from TVLine caught up with Patrick Dempsey aka Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy.

Patrick Dempsey spoke about why he chose to renew his contract and how he would like to see the Series Final play out. Part of the interview is below, and you can read the full interview at: TVLine.com

TVLINE | You re-signed for two more years last May — how come?

Patrick: "Job security. You look at what’s going on in the world and how difficult it is to get a job. Actors who have been on other [hit] shows aren’t working. I’m like, you know what? Why not [stay]? It’s here. It’s still going. Everybody’s working really well together. The scheduling is working out this year. And it’s still amazingly popular. I had a long time where I wasn’t working. I was struggling. So why not? And the money’s good. I would be stupid to say no."

TVLINE | How do you think the show will end?

Patrick: "Gosh. I hope it’s not something traumatic like another plane crash or somebody getting run over by a bus. I think [life will] sort of just go on. I think it would just go out very simply — and leave it open for the movie." [Laughs]

I think there are many fans out there that are with Patrick on this topic. The drama and tragedy has all gotten a little too much for fans of Grey's Anatomy lately. As for the comment about a Grey's movie, well that would be interesting.

"Spoiler Alert!" Grey's Anatomy - Cristina's Doing The Nasty, Nasty

The following post contains spoilers from the next episode of Grey's Anatomy; if you want to be spoiler free, then do not read any further.

Is it Cristina and Owen who are getting it on, or does Cristina have a new, sexy friend? As hard as it is to resist the temptation, I try to remain spoiler free. However this particular story had me intrigued, as I am a huge fan of Cristina Yang, and I'm wondering where this is going. I have not watched any video promos, and I usually don't watch them, as I find them to be very misleading. So now I am very excited to watch Grey's tomorrow night.

Vintage Sandra Oh and Kevin KcKidd in this scene; loved it 

In episode two; and in last weeks episode, I felt hopeful that maybe Owen and Cristina may find their way back to each other. The bathtub scene for me did redeem Owen a little in my eyes. Owen is capable of being the husband Cristina needs; that much was clear, however can Owen accept that Cristina does not want children, because if he can't then there is no hope for this couple. Shonda Rhimes may want to re-unite them but unless their reunion is believable then fans won't buy it. Well I won't anyway. 

In the spoilers released by Wetpaint; Cristina tells Meredith about this friend and also reveals that she does not like him. But how do we know she is talking about someone she's sleeping with? It would not be out of character for Cristina to have a one-night stand with someone she finds attractive; and it technically would not be adultery, however some fans may beg to differ. Owen and Cristina are separated, so it could be argued that she has every right to have a fling. Some would see this as cheating on Owen given that they are still married, and the fans that are hoping for Cristina and Owen to reunite will be furious once again. 

Is this the guy in the photo above that Cristina gets it on with? I hope not; he wouldn't be my pick. In any case I hope it's not true; only because it does not sit too well with my belief system, however we won't get into that. I'm not really fussed as to whether Cristina and Owen get back together, unless it happens in a realistic way that is true to them. And if Cristina finds a new lover then it just makes it harder for her and Owen to co-exist. 

I have read posts on Grey's Anatomy forums where fans have expressed an interest in seeing Avery and Yang get it on and some even feel that Shonda missed a really good opportunity to pair them up. And while we're on this subject, does anyone remember this scene cause I've been racking my brain for hours ever since I found the photo. It must have been at the party that they threw for Arizona's birthday in Season 6.

The promo video link to UTube is below; for anyone who would like to see it, I have also included the Canadian promo as sometimes they are better than the ABC videos:

Grey's Anatomy 9x04 Promo "I Saw Her Standing There" (HD)

Grey's Anatomy 9x04 Canadian Promo | "I Saw Her Standing There" [HD].

Classic Cristina Yang

So tell me; what do you want to see happen? Would you like CrisOwen back together, or divorced. Do you think they can resolve their issues? Or would you like to see both Owen and Cristina with different people. Sound off in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter.

And in the meantime enjoy the episode on Thursday, or Tuesday if you live in Australia.

Grey's Anatomy Spin Off; Private Practice Cancelled "Caution Contains Spoilers"

Shonda Rhimes' creation Private Practice will be ending as of Episode 13. Private Practice began as a spin-off of Grey's Anatomy and starred Kate Walsh as Addison Montgomery Shepherd. Addison moves to LA to work with her friends after her reconciliation with Derek Shepherd falls apart. The following post contains spoilers for people who have not seen the first four episodes of the new Private Practice season. If you do not want to be spoiled, do not read any further.

We shouldn't be surprised at this news; Private Practice has not been doing well in the ratings for sometime now. The ratings have not been awful, however with Kate Walsh hanging up her scrubs as of episode 13, it was probably clear the show would not survive without the character of Addison Forbes Montgomery.

It is sad though. Sad for the actors now out of work. My hope is that some of them come to Grey's Anatomy. I would love to see Charlotte and Cooper; and Amelia. Addison and Jake would be great too. I could look at Jake all day long, what a total hottie. Addison got it right when she chose him. Anyway enough, I digress....One person I do not want to see and will not miss is Violet. I adore Amy Brenneman and she is one hell of an actress, but her character just grates on my nerves. And poor Pete, I feel so sorry for poor Pete; why did he have to die like that. So much unfinished business, he never told Violet why they broke up last year. I hope Shonda rectifies this, cause I really want to know why Pete all of a sudden could not imagine spending another twenty-five years or longer with Violet. It's like the thought of being married to her for that long terrified him. And I know Pete loved her. Was it because she ran off to do that book tour after her licence was suspended at the beginning of last season, and he never forgave her? However, not that Pete has died it's unlikely Violet will ever get those answers.

I'll miss those Grey's/Private crossovers

Anyway enough about Violet. Hope I never meet up with that character again. Send her over to Scandal and have her play a really, mean character. Perhaps she could be someone from Olivia's past and the two could have a huge bitch-slapping fight. That would be so funny and so awesome, and I would not put this kind of thing past Shonda Rhimes, the Queen of Drama and Devastating events....Hmmmmm okay, back to Private Practice and it's demise into the ABC archives and peoples DVR's and DVD collections. 

It is a shame to see the end of this show, even if the only reason it survived for as long as it did was because it followed Grey's Anatomy on a Thursday night and there were cross-over episodes. It is true that Private Practice had a following of people who were not fans or even Grey's Anatomy watchers, so it did build a solid fan base there for awhile. When it moved to Tuesday nights to accommodate Scandal the ratings were looking pretty ordinary. 

One of the Best Episodes of Season 5 - Amelia's Intervention

From Season 3 onwards, I felt that show was better, the stories were well told and more interesting, however by the time we got to the end of Season 5, I felt something was missing. I did not enjoy the whole baby storyline with Amelia, or Addison's dilemma of whether she should choose Sam or Jake. Private Practice is now four episodes into Season 6 and the positive of this is that they have time to wrap up everyone's story arcs. Having already seen a few episodes of Season 6; it is clear that Shonda and the writers have been preparing for the end. When Kate Walsh announced she was leaving in the summer hiatus, the network probably felt that it should end. After all this show was created especially for the character of Addison Montgomery and it didn't seem as though it could go on without this character. With Kate Walsh gone, ratings would be worse than they are now. Kate Walsh is a very popular actress and the reason why a lot of viewers watch this show. 

Pete's Bali Themed Wake

There are also references made to Mark Sloan's death on Grey's Anatomy; but by the time these episodes make it to Australian TV; many people may wonder what and who they are talking about; especially if they are not Grey's watchers. Having Private Practice follow Grey's always meant that the crossover episodes made sense; but now that it doesn't and may not run after Grey's in Australia will means some fans may be very confused.

While I will miss Private Practice, it is good that they are ending it now and the characters stories will get some kind of closure. Nonetheless, I will miss my Jake, Coop, Charlotte and Amelia fix every week. Here's hoping these characters pop into Seattle Grace sometime in the future.


What do you all think of Private Practice being cancelled? Sound off in the comments area or link up with this site on Facebook or Twitter.

Grey's Anatomy Season 9 - 2: Remember The Time, Episode Review

 On Grey's Anatomy, in a series of flashbacks; we re-visit what our favourite medics went through out there lost in the woods for four days. Fans felt that this was unrealistic, however they were lost in thick bush-land and recently a plane crashed here in Queensland, and it took two full days to find that plane. I think it's possible. And it's TV, so we suspend reality to a point.

Twisted Sisters

Lost in the woods for four, long nights, trying to survive and keep each other alive. No food, very little water and unable to start a fire to keep warm; they managed to stay alive; just. We all know what became of Mark, however he was alive when they were rescued; thanks to Cristina. Animals fighting over Lexie's body, and Cristina desperately trying to keep bugs away from Arizona's leg, not to mention Mark who kept dying. Yet Cristina managed to keep them all alive and once they are rescued Cristina falls into a catatonic state. Hats off to Sandra Oh; when will the industry wake up and give this woman an Emmy? Cristina in the bath explaining to Owen what happened over those four days gave me chills and on watching it again for the fourth time to write this post; the chills were still there. She is flawless in every single scene.

Poor Lexie, but it's actually true that those events would take place in a real-life situation. I even found myself softening up a little towards Owen. He was so calm and patient; his obvious concern and love for his wife gave me hope that they might make it. Do many couples get past infidelity? And can they overcome the abortion and no children issue? Seems like a deal-breaker to me, but I also believe that if you really love your partner, you will move heaven and earth to make it work.

Mark died twice in two episodes and I cried both times

The episode told each characters story about the crash in a sequence of flashbacks; starting with Derek and Meredith, Cristina, Mark, and Arizona. It was a little confusing understanding the time-line and sequence of events, however it was so well filmed, written and acted; I can forgive this oversight. Mark dying again had me tearing up, which to me means Shonda Rhimes and Co did a fantastic job with this episode. I would even go as far to say it was the best Grey's episode in a long time. I am so hoping that we are back to the good old days of Grey's Anatomy; where every episode had me on the edge of my seat, feeling tense and anxious and very grateful for the funny one liners that were thrown in amongst the darkness.


It's certainly looking like an interesting story for Derek Shepherd with his hand. If you remember in the last episode his hand went numb during surgery, so we could see him doing something different this season. It was great to see Meredith by his side, encouraging him not to give up. However, it is only a matter of time before she breaks. This is typical Meredith, she runs around making sure everyone else is okay, and then falls apart. Remember after the shooting; it was halfway through the season before Meredith admitted that she was feeling traumatized too. It's also looking like Callie and Derek become close this season. Having lost their best friend Mark; I would not be surprised if they bonded over this.

Callie and Arizona's story is looking like being very interesting, given the situation with Arizona losing her leg and Callie giving Alex the order to do the amputation. Not sure that I really want to see Arizona blaming Alex for the rest of the season or Callie for that matter, but I doubt that this is where the writers are going. There is an opportunity here for the writers to show a different side to Arizona, as we really have not seen her dark side. And Alex; give the guy a break. No more dumping on Alex. He needs to find a good woman and settle down.

In concluding this review, I just want to add how much I loved April's "Come on Yang; I'm wide open. Hit me!" Or something along those lines. And not to be nit-picky, but why was April wearing resident scrubs? She is an attending; just not a board certified attending surgeon. Whether Owen fired her or not, she is still an attending. I don't know why, but mistakes like this really annoy me and I'm shocked that I haven't seen anyone on the TWOP board raise this issue. 

Really gonna to miss McSteamy

So after episode two, I have to say this is a great start; especially for a show that is into it's ninth year. But I'm not getting excited just yet; Season 8 started out really well too, but in all fairness; these two episodes kicked ass over the Season 8 premiere.

"Spoiler Alert" McDreamy's Sister Visits On Grey's Anatomy

It was recently reported on Zimbio.com/TV that Derek's sister will visit Seattle Grace. Now it is not clear which sister will be visiting, however we do know it will be one of the two sisters that viewers are yet to meet. Kathleen; the psychiatrist, or the unnamed sister that has been referred to in previous scenes.

The role is being played by Neve Campbell who is most well known for her role on Party of Five. We have met Amelia (played by Caterina Scorsone) and Nancy (played by Embeth Davitz), so this will be one of Derek Shepherd's sisters' we have not been seen on Grey's Anatomy. It is highly likely given Derek's serious hand injury that it will be Kathleen, the psychiatrist that comes to visit, as Derek needs all the support he can get at the present moment.

Derek has also lost two people that were very close to him. Lexie who was his sister in law, and resident at work and Derek was close to her as a brother in law, mentor and co-worker. Derek also lost Mark who was like a brother to Derek. During their childhood Mark spent a lot of time with Derek's family because Mark's family were never around. Mark and Derek were best friends and brothers. Even Derek's mother gave Mark some motherly advice on her visit to Seattle Grace in Season 5.

So Dr Derek Shepherd has a lot to deal with. He may possibly never operate again; he has lost his sister in law and a man who was like his brother. So it stands to reason that he would need a lot of support and who better than his psychiatrist sister? This is looking like a very interesting storyline for Derek Shepherd and Patrick Dempsey, the actor who plays him, however I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

Update: 21 October 2012; New broke last night that Private Practice has been cancelled. Could we see a Shepherd family reunion with Amelia visiting Derek too? Caterina Scorsone is a very talented actress, so it would be surprising if ABC and Shonda Rhimes choose not to negotiate a contract with her. She could be Seattle Grace's new bad-ass neuro-surgeon if Derek's hand really is out of commission. I guess we can speculate all day. What do you think about this idea?
