Hi, it’s your usual post-episode rambling fangirl post. It’s OF COURSE 2am in the morning and the filter is off.
Can we think back to that moment Meredith in season 2 said she wasn’t going into work cos her conditioner stopped working? And now think back to tonight’s episode… Can we also lower to our knees and just raise our hands to the heavens above that Ellen Pompeo exists. She fucking owned that episode and as a fan of, oh I don’t know- a million years now?, it makes me so grateful that she still gives a crap about doing her best and giving her best. TAKE A FUCKING BOW LADY!
Alex Fucking Karev
He’s my hero. He’s my person. Well, he would be if Meredith wasn’t hogging him. He is the kindest and most underrated character on TV. I’ve maintained this since season 2 finale when he picked Izzie up off Denny’s bed. The way he cheered Meredith up, the way he was there, the way he was with the kids, the way he just knew she couldn’t hear and then could translate what she was meant by one simple look…he was just PERFECTION. He did what he needed to do and SHOWED THE FUCK UP.
I have a feeling we’ve not seen the end of this one. I have a sneaky suspicion they are going to flashback the shit out of the next few episodes and I’m going to have to watch Amelia spiral out of control. BUT, for now, I’m so very happy with how they’ve handled it. Also, that woman knows how to slide down a wall. Richard explaining Amelia was so REAL and DEEP. We’ll get on to him in a second.
Guys, I TOLD YOU TO GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER AND MAKE OUT AGAINST A CAR AGAIN. Why has this not happened yet? I’m going to give you 2 more episodes, then you get put in time out.
My babies. That look at the end says it all. You’re going to make it. You have to. Alex is part of the same village as Jo and I think it took this episode to make her realise that. I’m waiting patiently for my invitation in the post.
When someone said “has someone let the chief know?” I legit thought, he’s standing RIGHT THERE, of course he knows. Richard Webber is Chief, he will always be Chief. You know why? Cos of speeches like the one in tonight’s episode. The calm of the storm (we’ll ignore his little drunk spell in s6), the wisdom of an owl, the eye of the tiger… Whatever, he’s chief to me, he’s chief to you and he’s chief to everyone in that damn hospital.
You are also Chief. Congrats on that one.
OK. So, I don’t want you to stop breathing over this following statement but…
I actually liked Penny in tonight’s episode. Her weird centre parting bothered me less and every time she was on screen I didn’t feel the need to throw a brick at it. Also, slamming Jackson TO THE FLOOR. AND, the little hand up at the end… was kinda cute.
This is big progress in my world.
Are not talking. This is worst case scenario for me. If they’re getting along, great- give me the screen time. If they’re at each other’s throat, great- give me the screen time. If they’re not talking? Fuck it, I’m good with eye sex- GIVE ME THE SCREEN TIME.
Is abnormally tall compared to his sister, no?
There’s a village out there for Meredith and the tribe leader is Alex Fucking Karev, we’ve probably not seen the last of an Amelia spin-out, Japril find your car and get on it, Jolex my address is…, Chief Webber needs to release an album cos I’d buy that shit and make sweet love to it (I need to sleep, now!), and I didn’t want to kill Penny this week. Omelia- I’m not done with you and you shouldn’t be either. And finally, it turns out little Bailey is only about 2 years away from becoming taller than Chief Bailey.
I love Greys Anatomy. Well done Denzel Washington.
