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

Published

on


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 Review – Season Finale! (16×21)

Grey's Anatomy - Put On A Happy Face 16x21

It may not have been a hospital shooting, a major fire, or an explosion, but it was certainly a Grey’s Anatomy season finale. A bittersweet one at that! It’s finally that time of year when we are left dangling on a very high cliffhanger with almost no end in sight.

The past episodes have left Richard’s health in danger, but the doctors finally figured out the cause of his mysterious symptoms.

Initially, everyone thought it was Alzheimer’s, but DeLuca caught it just in time. In fact, Richard was suffering from Cobolt poisoning as a result of an old hip replacement.

Meanwhile, Teddy and Owen’s wedding was scheduled for the end of the night but was halted indefinitely after Teddy left Owen an unfortunate voicemail.

In an installment that was certainly the lamest finale, it still left us with some major questions.

The entire hour was focused on Richard’s surgery and recovery from his new hip replacement after his old one failed him and essentially rotted in his body. I’m not sure how they expected us to focus on any of the other cases when all I wanted to do was focus on Richard’s status.

Oh, and also amidst the chaos, Link and Amelia welcomed their new baby boy into the world. What a day to be born little man!

Thankfully the episode ended on some happy notes for all patients involved. The little girl finally got her smile, the guy got the bat dislodged from his chest, and Richard seemed to make an easy recovery from his surgery.

However, there was certainly some strain left behind in a couple of relationships, to say the least. After Richard woke from his surgery Katherine was by his side ready to sleep next to him, but despite his previous delusions he remembered their old fights and didn’t seem to want anything to do with her.

I was hoping their relationship would be mended by this stressful time, but it was far from it. It’s understandable that Richard wouldn’t want anything to do with Katherine, but also she did run to his side during his most vulnerable time. Katherine was completely at fault for their latest blowup, but Richard knew Katherine was a hard woman. I hope they’re able to forgive each other because, at this point in life, they both deserve to have a companion by their side.

Well, Teddy majorly f-ed up. Koracick’s a good guy and deserves so much better. However, I had hoped that Teddy could have been exactly what he deserved.

I’m not sure why she kept messing around with him. She knew she didn’t want him, so how could she sleep with him and then proceed to tell him that was just her saying goodbye?

Owen’s not a saint either, so I’m not sure what’s going to transpire after this major incident, but I have a feeling things will eventually continue toward marriage. I’m putting my prediction in writing! Owen and Teddy will have a large rough patch, but will eventually take each other’s hands in marriage, even if it’s by the end of Season 17!

I’m not sure what will happen for Koracick because Teddy seemed like the woman for him, especially after he’s gone through so much life trauma. I hope the writers wrote him a happy ending with a lovely lady. Though, I will continue to secretly cross my fingers for a Teddy and Koracick miracle!

Anybody else with me??

On a small side note that only feels right because Meredith is the main character of the show, Meredith and DeLuca seem to be doing well? They’re not officially back together, but their trajectory seemed to be heading in that direction. Meredith was last seen taking DeLuca home, which I can only assume was back to her place. He was sobbing, and I really question if he’s going through a mania of sorts because he did lash out a few times. I’m not sure if he could attribute that to the fact that nobody would believe him and he had to take extra measures to ensure he was heard? However, I am curious if this will finally be addressed in the next season.

Let me know your thoughts on the season finale down below!

I guess this is ta-ta for now, until at least mid-September.

Additional Side Notes:

  • I had the same exact questions Amelia shouted! Why do we have babies? How does humanity exist?
  • That look shared between Jo and Hayes made me question if they’re going to become something! I guess I had never thought of Hayes pairing up with anyone except for Meredith, but things have been set up nicely so that Meredith will end up with DeLuca and Hayes isn’t left alone!
  • Maybe I’m not observant enough, but it seemed like Amelia didn’t really show a baby bump until this last episode before she went into labor!
  • I will always enjoy the subtle humor thrown into the drama and I’ve noticed a common trend, Bailey. Amelia demanding Bailey stay after she stole her baby daddy from taking the grunt of her squeezes was too precious. Bailey’s been there for many births on the show, so it only seemed right she be there for Amelia.

Grey’s Anatomy Review – What’s Wrong with Richard? (16×20)

Grey's Anatomy Review - Sing It Again (16x20)

Richard’s mysterious ailment remained the greatest puzzle of the hour, alongside a more humanizing storyline for Koracick.

Apparently, dementia and Alzheimer’s are ruled out for Richard, but what else could it be? The doctors having a ticking timeline and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be an easy case to solve.

All the surgeons except for neuro were put on Richard duty and had to do some hard thinking. It has been a while since they had to sit and map out an entire diagnosis.

And of course, the patriarch of the show was not going to make it easy.

The scariest moment was when Meredith found Richard about to cut into himself. Initially, the thought of him cutting into another unsuspecting patient was terrifying, but then when it revealed the reality of the situation my blood pressure soared.

Meredith came in like a superhero and saved the day, but I honestly didn’t know which way it was going to go. They better find a cure fast, or Catherine’s going to kill them all, well before Richard goes.

If you were on the fence between Team Koracick or Team Owen you might be no longer! I know this episode only strengthened by loyalty to Koracick.

Despite his rudeness and overall impertinence toward life in general, Koracick has suffered a loss very few understand. The loss of his son David devastated his entire life and gave him a grim outlook on the future. I’m not making excuses for his behavior, but the death of a child can certainly harden someone.

Since this event that rocked his world, Teddy seems to be the only thing that gives him true happiness, besides his large surgeon ego. When his ex-wife paid him a visit with her youngest son, Koracick was thrown for a major loop. Not only did Guthery closely resemble David, he even sounded like him. Koracick could barely handle seeing his ex-wife, let alone a look-alike of his late son.

If you didn’t feel every shade of sadness for Koracick this entire hour, do you even have a heart?!

I just want to side comment on the beauty of his relationship with his ex-wife. It didn’t seem like there was any bad blood between the two and rather than a loss of love being the reason they could no longer stay together, it seemed like the pain of losing their son was the biggest reason.

Anyway, Teddy stayed by his side the entire time and even squeezed his hand many times.  I don’t understand how she didn’t recognize that Koracick was the man she needs to be with.

Teddy was the only person who could calm him down during Guthery’s surgery and every moment she was standing by she had a genuine look of concern and love. I am convinced she deep down loves him, but Owen’s just the easier choice.

Owen and Teddy have gone through their own share of problems and hurdles, but Owen’s just made to much of a mess and Koracick’s the less complicated past, I’d argue.

Of course, Koracick carries a lot of baggage, but Owen carries the same amount if not more. There’s been nothing recently on Owen, he’s honestly just clueless to Teddy’s indecisiveness.

The final scene between Teddy and Koracick didn’t look promising to a happy future between the two. Instead, Teddy grabbed Owen after her emotionally taxing day and pulled him into a supply closet to sex him up and tell him she wanted to get married sooner. I’m confused by her thinking.

After a day like that with Koracick, how could anyone not feel compelled to choose him? Maybe she was looking for a happier outlet and Owen was the easier choice? I’m not sure, but Teddy needs to be 120% sure with her choice. By the looks of next week’s preview, Koracick is still fighting for Teddy even on her wedding day. Will he win? Comment your thoughts down below!

Additional Side Notes:

  • The case of the singing lady heavily reminded me of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. No way musicophelia is a real phenomenon! Because mind blown.
  • “How do you fix it?” “Singing lessons.” Honestly, the best line of the night. Koracick deflects pain with humor, at least it gave us a good laugh.
  • It looks like Amelia’s baby’s coming in fast! Are we ready? Maybe more than Link appeared to be!
  • Schmidt and Jo need each other right now and it’s perfect they moved in together. Starting another chain of coworking roommates, very Grey’s Anatomy.
