“Why is everything so horrible?!”
GREY’S IS BACK, I REPEAT GREY’S IS BACK. With a 2 hour premiere, nothing was off limits on last nights episode. A baby was born, a marriage is possibly over, a relationship is blossoming, a proposal was made, and someone lost a life. Just an average day at the Grey Sloan Memorial.
MCBABY: A baby is born! Mer & Der had their baby in the season finale back in May, but we finally get to see little Bailey! He is probably the cutest baby in the world, I mean come on look at his parents. It’s so weird to think that Mer & Der have a baby. They’ve come a long way since season 1. The episode starts off with everyone fawning over baby Bailey, when Derrick asks about Webber, who we all saw last laying on the floor electrocuted.
CALIZONA: Is it really over for our favorite married couple? It’s not secret that Callie knows Arizona cheated on her. She is devastated. And she lets everyone know that Arizona is a S-L-U-T (her words not mine). It’s hard not to feel bad for Callie. Everyone she loves hurts her, and we all thought they were going to last. It’s not like they can avoid each other, there are casualties all over the hospital due to a mudslide, and the only thing on Arizona’s mind is forgiveness. The only thing on Callie’s mind is how she wants nothing to do with Arizona. In my opinion, Arizona needs to give Callie space. She just found out her wife cheated on her, don’t ask for forgiveness.
WEBBER: Last time we saw Dr.Webber, he was laying on the floor fighting for his life. The only person who is concerned about his whereabouts, is Dr.Bailey. We all know she feels guilty about the way she talked to him last, but she has a point, it’s not like Webber to be missing when there are traumas in the ER. She sends Shane to look for him, but he passes the message on to Heather. Next thing you know, Heather finds Webber, but is electrocuted once stepping into the room. And just like that, another intern is gone. I can’t take anymore people dying Shonda Rhimes! Shane ends up finding them both, and now the residents of GSM are put to the test.
BAILEY & CHRISTINA: Bailey and Cristina worked on Webber and Cristina managed to get his heartbeat steady. Way to go Yang! Webber still needed surgery, but is really weak. Since he is childless and Adele is dead, they have to find his next-of-kin. It isn’t a surprise when we find out that it’s Meredith. Those two have the best father-daughter relationship. When Meredith finds out the news, she is faced with deciding life or death for Webber. She decides to go with the surgery, to her it is the only right thing to do.
INTERNS: Meanwhile in an other OR, Derrick is operating on Heather. It doesn’t look good, but he doesn’t want to loose her. Shane feels extremely guilty and blames himself for her condition. In the end, Heather doesn’t make it. This leaves all the interns stunned. The spend the rest of the evening trying to remember Heather, and wait to console her mother. I never really liked the interns before, but this episode showed them in a different light.
In the end, through all the drama, Katherine Avery’s screaming, and the two surgeries, Webber is okay, and opens his eyes to hear Meredith calling him, her family. I cried, not even going to lie! You can’t watch an episode of Grey’s without crying, its impossible.
OWEN&CHRISTINA: These two are SO confusing. On the season finale, they were over. Now, they continue to have sex all over the hospital to make their “last time” perfect. Clearly, it ain’t over! But Christina let’s Owen know that this isn’t easy for her, and it won’t ever be.
ALEX&JO: They are finally together, even though I secretly feel like the only girl for Alex is Izzie, but they are together. Attempting to have their first time together in the hospital, each time comes to an halt. I want to see where this relationship goes, because we all know Alex has had enough crazy in his life.
JACKSON&APRIL: April confessed her love for Jackson in the season finale. Too bad for April but, Jackson had enough of all the back and forth and officially breaks it off. So, April accepts Matthews proposal. I feel that she is really confused, and will realize that she will always want Jackson.
Like I said everyone, GREY’S IS BACK! Get ready for a season of the unthinkable!

Grey’s Anatomy Has Overstayed Its Welcome
With every season renewal beyond Season 14 that Grey’s Anatomy seems to nab miraculously, the great grandmother of all medical dramas has seriously overstayed its welcome.
And I promise I say this purely out of love as a superfan myself, as someone who has seen every episode, some more than once.
I hate to compare it to this but remember Season 5, Episode 19, when the great aunt continues to be revived, and the niece and nephews seem like monsters each time they hold their breath, hoping she’s gone for good? Well, Grey’s Anatomy is the great aunt in this scenario, and the fans are the children. There, I said it.
Numerous TV shows have ended much too early, but it’s a rarity for a show to have lasted beyond its expiration date. And while there’s no one reason the show has gone downhill, these are some of the factors I think contribute to its decline.
Shonda Rhimes Signs With Netflix
Many people don’t know this, but Shonda Rhimes, the original creator, and writer for the show exited and turned over her duties in 2017 when she decided to sign with Netflix.
She passed the showrunner title off to Krista Vernoff, who has been with Grey’s Anatomy since the beginning.
I’m not sure if I actually notice a difference in the writing, but it does seem like Rhimes’ exit in 2017 aligns similarly to when the show started to lose its steam.
Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but the show began recycling storylines, it lost important characters, and honestly, the drama between doctors began to go off the rails.
Original Characters are Replaced
The amount of times I’ve come across articles about Sandra Oh’s return is astounding. I’m not sure why everyone’s obsessed with theorizing her comeback. Oh has repeatedly said for years that she’s outgrown the show and will never return.
However, without Cristina, there was no hope for the show. Sure, Derek was Meredith’s true love, but Cristina was Meredith’s soul mate. So her exit was quite the blow, and I don’t think the show ever truly recovered.
Oh’s departure in Season 10 left only a sputter of decent seasons in its wake. Cristina was a bulk of the humor and comedic energy, and without her, it lost a huge piece of itself.
Every few seasons, the show introduces new interns. We’re used to that. But, once they were forced to replace attendings and original cast members like Cristina, Callie, Arizona, and Alex, it brought less desirable characters to the forefront.
Amelia, Teddy, Owen, and Maggie are currently the main four alongside Meredith. Originally they were side characters, only meant to add drama to the lives of the original cast. But as original members began to leave, their storylines began to evolve and steal the focus.
Amelia, the other Shepherd, replaced Derek, and Teddy replaced Cristina.
With an entirely new shift in perspective, the new doctor’s storylines overshadowed any exciting patient cases. While in the first few seasons, there was a striking balance between special medical cases and doctors’ personal lives.
There used to be a formula. Midway through each season, there would be a unique and interesting patient case (hysterical pregnancy, sex accidents, etc.), and then the season finale would end on a major event like a shooting or plane crash.
Now, it seems the only major news we’re left with is whether or not Amelia will finally find true love, commit, and tie the knot. Or, who’s going to have the next baby.
And don’t even get me started on how absent Meredith was for this latest season. Meredith has never been my favorite character, but that doesn’t change the fact that the show’s named after her, and she is the main focus of the show. So, when all we saw was her on the beach and in a hospital bed, it definitely felt like we were cheated.
The only good thing to come out of Meredith’s beach rendezvous were guest appearances from old cast members. Seeing Lexi, Mark, and Derek on the beach brought back deep nostalgia for how the show used to be.
As Season 18 is now in the works, I truly hope the show can end peacefully afterward. It’s been dragged on long enough, and it would be the first show I’d ever wave goodbye to willingly.
Please, end the show before it’s too late, so I no longer have to continue watching it out of loyalty.
Now, what do you think? Should the show end? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts down in the comments!
