Penultimate Episode Review Of Grey's Anatomy Season 9 - Via The Shondaland Source

As we head toward the Grey's Anatomy; Season Nine Finale; here is an excellent recap of last Thursday's penultimate episode; "Readiness is All" written by Adam at Shondaland Source. Given recent life events; I have had very little time to write reviews on most of my favourite TV Shows, which is frustrating to me as it's one form of writing that I love to do. There are many excellent bloggers and writers who write great reviews on Grey's Anatomy, so I figured that sharing a review that I totally loved was the next best thing. 

The following is an excerpt of the review from The Shondaland Source. You can read the entire review via the links below. Enjoy.

The Calm Before The Storm -  By Adam at ShondalandSource

Well, this wasn’t what I expected. This wasn’t what I expected at all.

That’s all I could think by the time Grey’s Anatomy‘s penultimate ninth season episode came to a close. Well, that and “I loved this episode.” Because I really, truly did.

Talk about false alarms: As it turns out, Meredith’s little slip down the stairs did not spell doom for Meredith or child and is not the source of our problems to come in the finale regarding the birth of McBaby. But that sure didn’t make it any less difficult to watch the scene where Meredith took a pretty harsh tumble down the stairwell and I just about lost it watching Ellen Pompeo’s acting as her face turned to horror and helplessness at realizing what just happened and what it could mean for the baby inside.

Another false alarm? Alex wasn’t the one who beat Chest Peckwell to a pulp, leaving him in the hospital and potentially leading to a dark, dark path. I really, honestly thought for a good chunk of this episode that that is exactly where they were going with this: Alex beat Chest Peckwell to death and now he’s going to go to jail. All I could think was “No. NO WAY.” So color me surprised when it turns out that not only did Alex not beat Chest – Jo did – but that he didn’t die either. What I loved about this storyline was how much it brought Alex, Meredith, and Cristina together. There’s been some great moments with them scattered through the season, but it feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve seen the three of them really banding together, and it brought back a flood of memories to watch them all together. And, OK, I won’t lie: I loved it when Alex threatened Chest out of pressing charges against Jo by not-so-discreetly reminding him that his best friends are the people who bought and now own the hospital. And that Chest is never going to be remembered for anything other than the fact that he beat a woman.

But has the time finally come for Alex and Jo to get together? It looks like it, as Alex finally admits his feelings to her. Of course, being Alex, he doesn’t actually say the words, but he gets close enough. She knows what he’s talking about. Unfortunately, at that very moment a tree comes flying through the living room window so we don’t actually get any resolution to this confession. At least, not just yet. It’s understandable why Alex would be hesitant to enter into a relationship with Jo after learning that she was the one who put Chest in the hospital, especially after how badly he has been hurt in the past, but Meredith is right when she tells him not to write Jo off just yet, because those two? They fit together. They just do. And Alex can’t deny the fact that he went to Chest’s home with the same intention – and that it probably would have certainly ended worse had he followed through.

Cristina gets Ethan’s dad to finally wake up, just as Owen is coming around to the idea of and beginning to seriously consider adopting him. Something tells me, however, that this storyline isn’t over yet. Ethan’s dad probably isn’t truly out of the woods and not only that, but Owen and Cristina are going to have to finally sit down and have the discussion they’ve been avoiding for nearly three seasons now and figure out what to do when it comes to children. Because Cristina remains steadfast – she does not want children, and that is not going to change. I admire the fact that not only is she adamant about that fact, but that the writers won’t allow her to change her mind...................

Sure looks like trouble for Calzona on the horizon and it looks like Meredith has gone into labour

This episode was probably one of the best this season; but that is not surprising. Everyone seems to be experiencing life changes. Bailey's troubles after losing her patients to that infection. Callie and Arizona are most certainly going to have some drama in their marriage. And my hope is that we will see the birth of Meredith and Derek's baby at the end of the finale. 

My apologies to my readers for not updating this blog as much as I used to; and getting behind on episode reviews; I am dealing with some pretty rough stuff in my life, and as we all know the business of life just takes on a life of it's own and accepting writing jobs that will pay the bills has to take precedence. This blog for me is a labour of love and unfortunately does not pay the bills, however writing and reporting about my favourite TV show; Grey's Anatomy doesn't really feel like work to me.

So hit the comments, Facebook or Twitter and let me know what you thought of the episode and I'd love to know what your speculations are for the finale; given all the hype Shonda Rhimes has created.
