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.
