Omelia-based review on 13x17
In yesterday’s episode I finally found my passion about Omelia again!! In my opinion the episode is one of the best in this season so far. The episode gave me a lot of feelings and my heart was busy 💔💕💖
I want to start with my favourite scene of the episode, which is not so much about Omelia but also not so much not about Omelia: the talk of Lady chief trifecta about Maggie’s mom. It was a quite refreshing scene and it made me laugh.
This conversation turned fast into somewhat serious (of course Maggie, it was serious from the beginning): Meredith telling Maggie that she needs a reason, an explanation for her mom’s behavior.
Amelia does not share Meredith’s view. To see that the talk to Maggie was not necessary, you could see that pretty clear from her face.
Amelia and Maggie’s mom have some parallels here: They both refuse to explain their actions and behavior to their closest because they are too afraid of the consequences what leads to a lack of understanding in Maggie and Owen.
I think, Amelia started to reconsider her beliefs about not talking to Owen in this scene.
Speaking of parallels, here comes the next: Elsie and Lewis, passionate former surgeons and married for over 60 years.
They are an adorable couple and it is too sad that Elsie doesn’t make it in the end.
Even though they are not on good terms atm, Owen finds honest and loving words about his wife:
“She is the head of the neuro department, she is the boss and she is as stubborn as hell too. I know Dr. Shepherd very well and you can trust her.”
Of course people can say something about people what they don’t believe but would Owen say, he can trust Amelia when he doesn’t mean it? Owen knows what he wants.
And finally, here it is: the talk I have been waiting for half a season.
“You don’t get to call what is normal. You don’t know. You want a dream, Owen. And when you have a child you might not get to have what you asked for. You get what you are given and it might be wonderful and it might be painful and it might be both.”
“I know you are scared. Amelia, I think you would be an amazing mom.”
“I was already an amazing mom, Owen. For better and for worse. Are you here for that? Are you here for that?”
The comment about Cristina hurt.
But they started talking and if I hadn’t already been crying during their talk I would have started to during the song of Sleeping at Last. They always make intense scenes even more intense.
I do think they are on the right way to being together again.
Omelia will be the next Lesie, I believe in this.
I have been very sceptical about the pregnancy rumours and I still am. But what the hell is she drinking?? I hope it did taste better than it looked like.
Also: Meredith’s kids are still alive. At least some of them.
