Grey's Anatomy Season 9 Finale - Shonda Please Do Not Kill Anyone

What do you predict for the Season 9 Finale of Grey's Anatomy? What do you think Shonda Rhimes has up her sleeve this year?

In an interview a few weeks ago, Shonda Rhimes was quoted as saying that there will not be any big disaster to take us out of Season 9. What she has got planned is anyone's guess. Then a couple of weeks later rumours surfaced about an earthquake on Grey's Anatomy and Shonda was very quick to deny this; however she has since denied it several times on Twitter, so it's looking like it was just a rumour.

If I had to hazard a guess on the outcome of the rest of the Season and more importantly what I think will happen in the final episode would most likely revolve around Derek and Meredith and the upcoming birth of their baby and this story arc will most likely be told with a lot of drama. My hope is that it is not another premature baby story; we just had that in Private Practice and not so long ago in Season 7 with Callie's baby. But it is safe to say that Meredith and Derek will be the main focal point of the finale. Something will be going on with them that will urge fans back for Season 10. 

What will happen with fan favorites Cristina and Owen? It is hoped we will get some kind of resolution about the baby story. The way it is unfolding now with Owen and Cristina in such a good place; it's wonderful to see; but what about their issues. This needs to be addressed or will these two love birds just get it on with each other until one of them meets someone suitable. Owen did say that he was ending the marriage because all they did was hurt each other, perhaps he intends to not go there again. And who says couples have to get married to be happy; I'm sure a believable story-line could be built around this premise. In the long run, any couple that marries on TV Dramas don't tend to stay happy for long, there is always something interfering with the course of true love. So maybe Cristina and Owen are better off?

There has been a lot of talk that some of the interns will be let go. This may not be a bad thing, but I'm not sure that Shonda has any plans to get rid of any interns. Her reason for having them there was for teaching stories and that would stop. By all means, get rid of intern Jo; and bring Caterina Scorsone on board. I would love an Amelia and Alex love story. That would be something awesome to keep me going through the winter (or summer as it would be in the US when Grey's goes on hiatus). This would be so great, but Shonda isn't listening to me. And I seriously don't expect her too, but from what I'm reading about Grey's around the traps; not many people want to see Alex with the intern Jo. I especially am against this as I wanted better for Alex. The intern, Jo is too immature. A few short episodes ago, she accused Alex of trying to sabotage her, let's not forget that. As for the interns being let go; if I had to choose one to stay and get a regular spot; I would say Mousy; I think her real name is Brooks. I'm not very keen on any of the other's, but if they stick around next season; who knows I may warm up to them.

While I am not a fan of the intern Jo and Alex ending up a couple; I will put up with it in the hope that Alex can get a decent story out of this pairing. Ever since Alex got interested in being a doctor to children I have loved Alex's character. Before that, I did not like him at all. Even when he was with Izzie, I was not into Alex; however I did not like Izzie either. And from the point of view of Alex getting some meaty, juicy story is worth putting up with Jo as his lover. I guess we don't have any control over Shonda's choices, so make the best of it I say. I would love to see Kate Walsh reprise her role of Addison at Grey Sloan Memorial and she can bring Benjamin Bratt, her hot husband Jake; that would be really great.

Another idea I have is that April and Jackson will re-unite. Their romances with the paramedic and intern are to me, a plot device. I do not like the fact that April did not fess up and tell Matthew the truth about her cashing in her V Card with Jackson, but oh well, it make for drama down the line and that's what it's all about. I've never been a big fan of April or Jackson, especially Jackson, and it's no secret I wish they had gone last season and not Mark Sloan or Lexie Grey. But the actress who play April is very good at what she does, and I think her character is confusing viewers now; what April is doing now, and the choices she makes are not true to April's character. Last season I took into account that the actress had a baby, however now, there is no excuse for wasting a terrific actress such as Sarah Drew. At least if Jackson and April are together then I can enjoy Sarah Drew's talent; as most scenes will feature both actors. So for that reason, I am hoping this couple do re-unite.

Callie and Arizona seems like they are in a good place, so I doubt anything awful will happen to them given all they've been through. As I wrote in my previous post; they finally get back to a sex-life on Grey's this week; so things are finally looking up for them. Arizona's lost leg story arc has been going most of the season, so it's fitting that they get back to a happy life and marriage given that Shonda has said that Callie and Arizona are made for each other.

Shonda Rhimes has said that there will be no big disaster in this years Season Finale and I am grateful for that revelation as last season's stories' were very emotional, angsty and sad. But to go out for a ninth season with no cliff-hanger or carrot to bring viewers back for Season 10, would not be a good idea either. Grey's fans have been switching off this show, slowly for the last four to five years, and ratings for a show in it's ninth season are very good, but if they don't improve a little, there's little doubt that Season 10 will be the series end.

So no earthquakes, bombs in bodies or plane crashes to take this season out. Just good old drama and emotion we hope. Even though Shonda has said there will be no big disaster to end Season Nine, her idea of disaster could be different to ours. She would need to have something up her sleeve to keep viewers tuning in; and I hope that she is still motivated to keep working on Grey's Anatomy as it would seem that she is more committed to Scandal then Grey's. You only need to consult her Twitter page to figure this out. There are way more tweets about Scandal than there are about Grey's Anatomy. But Scandal is a new show and needs more promotion than Grey's, so that side of it is understandable.

I just hope that the Season Finale can get me excited enough to watch again in September of this year. Because for the first time in nine years, I lost interest in this show. The last few episodes about the law suit and hospital sale were starting to annoy me, as none of it made sense in the end. Especially the last couple of episodes surrounding that. Now that they own the hospital now, can we please get back to surgery, scapels, and sex. I guess no matter what happens, I will watch and update my thoughts on this blog, however it was extremely difficult to watch the last four episodes; I had them on my hard-drive for weeks before getting around to watching. I usually watch online as soon as Grey's Anatomy has been shown in the US; normally on a Friday night here in Australia or perhaps earlier if I can find it.

I would love to see Grey's Anatomy go on beyond Season 10; but the chances of that are not good, given the feedback on some of this season and ratings. I would think Shonda would be bringing her A Game now, given that she has lost Private Practice. I don't think she would be wanting to lose Grey's next season. Scandal looks like getting a third season for now, but it's anyone's guess whether we will see Grey's Anatomy and Scandal beyond May 2014.

And to wrap up; in short, I will say as someone on Twitter said earlier; I just hope Shonda does not kill anyone in this season's finale. Quite frankly to not see any death for a while on Grey's Anatomy would be a relief.
