Grey’s Anatomy – Blowin’ in the Wind (15×08)

Published

There is so much more than just dangerous debris (impaling unsuspecting citizens) in the air this episode as many feelings and secrets are finally revealed.

Finally, it only took a third of the season for Teddy to tell Owen that she’s pregnant with his baby. And in the operating room no less! I mean, talk about “not the time nor the place”. I’m just glad the patient was completely intact and unscathed by the giant candy cane before dropping that baby bomb.

Meanwhile, Meredith’s been sitting on Catherine’s secret. She rightfully doesn’t share Catherine’s information with Richard and instead tells him he’s going to need to figure out his issues so he can be there for his people. Although she does choose to tell Maggie about Catherine and advises Maggie that Jackson’s going to need all her love and support.

During the Teddy and Owen drama, Amelia attempts to take out a selfie stick that’s gone through Phoebe’s brain, unfortunately leaving her brain dead. Coincidentally Phoebe’s the perfect match for Cece, and hopefully, Cece will be receiving the organs she’s been waiting weeks for.

Betty returns with a few bumps and bruises and mega regret. She admits to having backtracked and gotten high but insists that she came back for Owen, Amelia, and Leo and is truly ready to turn over a new leaf in her sobriety. After having to tell Phoebe’s mom that she didn’t make it out of surgery, Amelia realizes how much time and effort is wasted being upset with Betty, so she gives her an emotional hug and tells her that no matter how far off the path she steps, she always wants her to come home.

Meredith’s love life is certainly escalating when she approaches Link and accepts his standing drink offer. A bit delayed, but I guess when you’re Meredith Grey there’s no such thing as an expired proposal. DeLuca witnesses the exchange and of course isn’t going down without a fight, so he propositions Meredith declaring his feelings for her. This love triangle is only getting spicier!

Of course, this episode ends on a typical Shonda Rhimes multi-dramatic cliffhanger when the power goes out leaving the doctors stuck in elevators. I guess Meredith’s time of logical contemplation about DeLuca is put at a standstill because the track record for elevator makeouts at Grey Sloan Memorial is off the charts. As for Owen, Teddy, and Amelia, maybe it’s a good thing the lights are out so they don’t have to visually reap in the uncomfortable situation.

I can’t even begin to imagine what the next episode is going to start with. Do you have any ideas?

Additional Sidenotes:

I love the small storyline between Nico and Schmidt and am glad they are finally bringing in another LGBT romance after the unfortunate exit of Calzona.

When Alex and Jo are stuck waiting for the storm to pass, and Alex mentions Izzie’s name, it’s definitely a sucker punch. I will forever be sad about the Alex and Izzie storyline…there was so much promise until there wasn’t! I’m all for the new characters and new relationships, but I will always be a fan of the OG pairings: Owen and Christina, Derek and Meredith, Izzie and Alex, etc.

Grey’s Anatomy- I Walk the Line (15×13)

A nice quick break was had from all the sadness and emotions lately. This lighthearted episode was definitely very much appreciated. No deaths, no tears, and really no drama!

Meredith and DeLuca are on the VERY slow uphill from their shared kiss, and DeLuca is patiently waiting for Meredith to receive the ok from Maggie before going forth with their relationship. I guess I’m starting to slowly warm up to the idea of MerLuca, we’ll see which comes first, their relationship or my acceptance. It’ll be a close one for sure!

As Meredith tries to discuss the DeLuca situation with Maggie, she is clearly distracted and distraught. Ironically she’s faced with an internal battle of ethics in regard to a difficult lifesaving operation on an old med school nemesis. The woman who used to emotionally abuse her is now asking her to save her life. Now that is taking karma to an entirely new level!

Owen and Teddy are handling patients whose realities smack both of them in the face.

The most drama this week was Britney’s parents arriving at the hospital! It wasn’t completely shocking, because they’re not the first long lost parents to turn up, but poor Owen. His love for Leo is so powerful, it is amazing to see his journey with fatherhood, from fighting to gain it and now fighting to maintain it.

Owen’s patient this week of course is a young boy. Remember Ethan from a few seasons ago, the boy Owen totally fawned over? It is kind of reminiscent of that situation. Owen’s heartstrings are pulled at the thought of the father losing his son, and it makes him fearful of losing Theo.

There is just a small part of me that does not believe his life is supposed to go this way. I can’t help but think this is just a small detour on his path to parenthood with Teddy. He may have legal status over Leo’s grandparents now, but I can’t help but think they can easily take that from him. And there is just a tiny chance he might lose Leo.

I am so thankful Grey’s focuses on Owen’s strong desire for fatherhood. It is such a shift from the male dominated society that portray women as the only beings who could ever want children.

It’s also important that they brought in a touchingly relevant topic. The Scottish father made such an important point about gun violence in the states, and all I was thinking was, “You go Shonda!” Thank you for throwing that not-so-subtle subtlety in there.

Teddy’s reality is mirrored back to her through a woman who seems to clearly be in a “throuple” with her husband and “best friend.” I put “best friend” in quotes because it is obvious there is much more to their relationship than just friendship feels. Honestly, I could not even tell which guy was her actual husband, until he came forward and explained the situation to Teddy.

This all feels way too close to Teddy’s situation. Although, by the end Teddy turns up at Koracick’s door insisting that she and Owen are just friends. I wonder how long this act is going to continue! I will always be unapologetically rooting for Owen and Teddy.

I guess Teddy’s genuinely happy with Koracick though, and I think he is a good guy who also deserves a woman like Teddy.

So, perhaps this is how it is meant to be … *big sigh*

Despite the drama-free Grey’s Anatomy we all have not seen in such a long time we almost questioned whether we had actually turned on the right show, we were gifted with some cheery and sweet moments.

Let’s talk about that smolder DeLuca gave Meredith across the room! Who else wouldn’t have been distracted as hell!

Additional Sidenotes:

  • I like to consider myself a Grey’s Anatomy super fan, but how could I have forgotten Maggie and DeLuca dated?!
  • Why is the struggle to keep a plant alive one of the most relatable things?
  • Jo’s photo op of her cutie husband next to his prized wall success was so precious. Alex’s grimace was too cute!
  • Bailey’s praise is so minimal, she hardly knows how to give it! But when she does, it is so meaningful

Grey’s Anatomy – Girlfriend in a Coma (15×12)

Time as an imagined concept by scientists is the glue that binds the storylines together this episode, beginning with the holiday season (boy did it make me nostalgic for those December festivities) and ending with a current Valentines Day theme. Everyone seems to be fighting the war against time, and thankfully we’re left with more victories than losses.

The bulk of the plot centers around the patient Natasha and her fiance Garrett as Natasha’s recovery time wavers tremendously. One step forward, two steps back until her dramatic and unfortunate death at the end of the episode. Two hands up if you cried waterfalls! Those tears had no chance against the beautifully thought out wedding planned by none other than Alex Karev! Alex is honestly killing it with the most stable relationship on the show currently and as interim chief.

FINALLY. We received the long-awaited answer to the love triangle. Meredith chooses DeLuca, and I’m honestly a bit surprised. My spidey-senses were not entirely expecting this one. After DeLuca already reprimands her for standing him up, she continues to do the same thing to Link. Link has only ever been kind and adoring to Meredith, but when does the good guy ever win? Only the self-proclaimed good guys win apparently.

DeLuca has a bit of an impish side to him, but he finally puts his foot down to let Meredith know that although the chase was originally fun and games, he does not have time to fight for someone that does not treat him like a choice. His words really seem to hit Meredith hard, or perhaps it was his OR innuendo, “If you meet someone who lights you up you should fight for them.” Perhaps I’ll learn to accept MerLuca as a couple, but until then I will just sit on the sidelines wishing for Link to earn his happy ending.

Meanwhile, Richard and Catherine are struggling through her recovery. Catherine’s headstrong personality is fighting against her vulnerable physical abilities and despisement of feeling dependent. Richard and Jackson are having a seriously difficult time watching the woman they both love dearly suffer so greatly. The treadmill incident was hard to watch and seeing Jackson’s true empathic emotions was deep. He’s really opening up, especially with Maggie and that will only continue to foster positive growth in their relationship. Another Grey’s wedding on the horizon?!

Bailey and Ben recover from their break and just in time for some fun February 14th activities. Ben’s boundless love for Bailey and stand-in father figuring for Tuck is incredible. Bailey deserves all the love and support in the world, even though she has a difficult time expressing those needs. No matter how hard he tried, Ben could never walk away, so it didn’t take long for him to run back to her wide-open arms. Ben just shows us that we all just deserve someone who will build us a treehouse!

The timelapse is done beautifully and wow, do I wish I could timelapse through a pregnancy. Teddy’s growing belly acts as a great visual representation of the three months covered. I’m happy to finally see her truly happy, and Koracick and Teddy look to be a strong fit for each other. When Owen watches Teddy and Koracick walk away together for their romantic and sensual pedicures, Owen’s face portrays a look of acceptance. He has finally realized he must to let her go, even though he will always love her.

Owen has enough drama of his own with the Betty, or should I now say Brittney, situation. I’m not particularly invested in Be-Brittney’s plotline, and I was wishing for something a bit juicier than the information she reveals. But I guess it does its job of creating turmoil for Owen, Amelia, and Theo.

I have to say, this was one of the strongest episodes of the season. The storyline was impeccable and it was perfectly emotional in every which way. Perfectly fitting for the Valentine season as it centered around the love lives of doctors. I’m interested to see where the MerLuca story goes, Koracick and Teddy’s love story progressing, and Schmitt and Nico’s newly out and proud relationship. Wahoo, love for all!

Additional Sidenotes:

  • Meredith’s joke about being in a love triangle with her food hits way too close to home
  • “Kiss the one who turns back time for you,” made my heart of cheese melt. Lying on a deathbed seems to impart much wisdom
  • Teddy and Owen really trying to act like friends is sweet, but honestly, they are so in love with each other it is painful

Grey’s Anatomy – Help, I’m Alive (15×10)

Published

I know it’s Seattle, but sheesh there seems to be an extra somber “grey” cloud hanging over the hospital this week. There were a few sweet storylines, particularly between the third angle of Meredith’s love triangle, but beyond that mostly sad and disheartening news for many people.

For starters, the biggest ongoing mess currently is the whole Amelia, Owen, and Teddy drama. This episode finally gave Teddy the courage she needed to stand up for herself and not let everyone else’s petty judgment overtake her right to feelings. Personally, as said previously, I am team Teddy all the way and everyone’s harsh thoughts about the situation are unnecessary.

Teddy’s intentions were not to happily host Owen’s bun in her oven, fly out to Seattle, watch as Amelia and Owen started a family, and then jump in as a home wrecker. No, no, no. At this point, everyone should understand that timing isn’t anyone’s strong suit here, but of course, it’s a TV drama so all we can do is sit in front of the screen shaking our head.

Don’t get me wrong, I do sympathize with Amelia. I would feel incredibly awkward and out of place if the man I loved was expecting a baby with the woman he’s loved his entire life. But Owen, Teddy has no time for your sass! Thank God she let him have it and made him realize that she wasn’t going to be the only one sacrificing for the baby. Another job switch-a-roo on the horizon?

Meredith’s ride on the DeLuca wave was certainly short-lived as this episode let Link show his soft underbelly. Meredith’s snappiness toward him at the beginning, of course, flip-flopped after he revealed his bout with cancer as a child. Who would have seen that one coming? It’s always the people you assume to have the most amount of privilege that are the ones with the most intense backstories.

Once again he shows his unadulterated compassion and love for children, specifically Meredith’s children, which will certainly win him brownie points, leaving poor DeLuca to solo ride his personal celebration of success. Link seems to be the right choice. He seems more mature and settled in life, whereas DeLuca still seems like a young boy. I’m open to any counter-arguments because I’m still not entirely sold on Link either!

The next triple threat at hand is the one boiling between Catherine, Jackson, and Richard. I am a huge fan of Catherine choosing to have her possible last surgery go down in history under her maiden name “Dr. Fox.” How empowering! And damn straight does she have all the right in the world to play the cancer card.

Her breakdown with Jackson and Richard was grounding as she expressed that the realness of the tumor only amplified when they found out. So keeping the people she loved the most in the dark was pertinent to keeping herself in the dark as well.

I’m preparing myself by stocking the house with boxes of tissues, just in case we’re treated with another important death this season. Not to say I don’t have faith in Amelia and Koracick’s tumor removal abilities, but sometimes even the well-renowned surgeons of Grey Sloan Memorial are no match to Shonda’s impeccable writing capabilities.

What do you think is going to happen to Catherine? Do you think Teddy, Owen, and Amelia are going to create one big modern family? What’s going to happen with Meredith’s love triangle?

Additional Sidenotes:

  • Alex’s and DeLuca have come a long way. Watching Alex teach and praise DeLuca in the OR was simply heartwarming
  • How is Meredith’s son, Bailey, already 5?! The children aren’t focused on much in the show, so they age FAST
  • Alex and Jo, honestly relationship goals! “Thank you for marrying me.”
  • Owen needed accidental paralysis to finally slow down and take a moment. These doctors and their inability to take a sick day! I don’t know whether to be amazed by their dedication or worried by their stubbornness
  • Koracick and Teddy? Seems promising, but now I expect Owen will realize how much he wants Teddy after he realizes he may not be able to have her
  • Is it just me or does DeLuca seem so much younger than Meredith?
  • Honestly, I’m right there with Meredith on the gap in knowledge about superheroes. “The Hulk” and “Hulk” same difference … I’m sure I just offended so many people
