Grey's Anatomy - Season 11 thus far.

Okay, so I am the first to admit that I have been going through the usual emotions during these first few episodes. IE - Wanting to slap Meredith , hating the re-hashing of storylines. And I still do, for the most part but I actually quite like Maggie. Anyway, lets begin.

I really dislike the way that everyone is blaming Richard. Meredith "You knew for a week and didn't tell me!" Maggie's reaction was also the same. Give the man a break! He's just found out that he has a daughter who he never knew existed. I don't blame him for not saying anything. What was he supposed to do? Go over to Meredith and gossip and giggle about it like they're two eleven year olds? The man needed time to deal with his OWN emotions. I can imagine it's a pretty massive shock, finding out that you have a daughter. He didn't say anything because he probably couldn't deal with their emotions as well as his own. It was telling that the only place he felt it safe to say was at AA. He wouldn't of been able to deal with anything else until he de-compartmentalised his own feelings and emotions. Once he did, I'm sure he would of said something. However in usual Grey's style, nothing stays secret for long. Amelia and Derek had the best responses. No blame,no shouting, just a "well.....welcome to the family." At that point that's what Maggie needed. And again, at the end of the day, it's not her fault either. She wasn't too know the can of worms that she would unwittenly open by confiding to Richard on the bench that day.

She just went searching for answers to her background, which is completely understandable. Which brings me onto my next point.

Meredith (and kinda to a certain extent Richard, but because it’s a massive shock for him I’ll let him off) are both rambling on and on about how betrayed etc. etc. they feel. I hate how no-one has actually asked Maggie if she’s okay. I mean, Meredith’s already found out about one sister, you think this would be easy territory for her. As an adopted person myself, it must be a bit of a shock to start a job in the hospital, just thinking you’d find out information about your birth mother, and then Boom! You find out who your real father is, oh! And by the way you have a sister. This can’t be easy for her. But, in typical Grey’s style it is always about Meredith.

I mentioned earlier about the rehashing of storylines. It’s not just the sister storyline, but the Callie/Arizona storyline also feels slightly rehashed, and also quite tired. Oh Callie’s busy, Arizona’s busy…what else is new? They always have been, and who exactly is looking after everyone’s kids whilst everyone is working? Semantics I know. But in all seriousness if Callie/Arizona are too busy to even look after Sophia, I doubt throwing another child into the mix is a good idea.

Amelia has her balls back! (Her neuro balls anyway) I hated the pathetic mess she was when she first came into it, she’s better than that!!! And now, hooray! Her balls are back.

Owen’s speech was lovely, although I do think that they need to find another story line for him, because while I loved what he said about ‘needing something good’ after Yang I hope they don’t overplay it.

I’m befuddled about why they threw so many of the Season 2-3 Ellis in. I can’t see how it benefits the storyline, but then I’m a Grey’s fan who can quote chapter and verse on those seasons. (Addison was in them remember? Lots of re-watching when on at that time) So, perhaps they were thrown in to benefit ‘the casual viewer’ and to reiterate the point (though its been said a squillion times) that Ellis was all cold and heartless. Every time she says ‘the carousel never stops turning’ I am reminded of that song ‘Spaceman’ by Babylon Zoo.

“You can’t get off the carousel…”

And then also, the film ‘Logan’s Run’

I’m very happy Bailey got the board seat. Poor Bailey has been in it from the start! She taught them everything they know, and she’s really been dumped upon the last few series, watching everyone around her move up into board members etc. She taught Alex for God’s sake! There was no way (in my eyes) that he deserved that more than she did.

All in all, it’s not that bad. But I am looking forward to them hopefully doing something different in the coming episodes. The series has got about a 6/10 from me at the moment. Oh! And someone speak to the music people please! Because the music is not so good either.

    Cristina and Burke

    I loved it. Loved it.

    I knew he was coming back so, of course I was expecting him, and knew that it was him who asked the question during the lecture. Even so, I got major goosebumps when he was speaking and then finally came into view. I must say, he has aged pretty well, he looks practically the same! Very smouldering. Of course, I was expecting the whole "Burke & Cristina love story" so I was surprised (but pleasantly so) when he showed her the pictures of his family. He's found his life, what he wanted from Cristina but could never get. In turn, she's become exactly who she wanted to be, which was Burke (circa first few seasons) However she still remains different to him in the way that he wanted a family, and to be the best, and Cristina just wants to be the best, without the family angle. What Burke said to Cristina was true. He found someone different to Cristina, someone who would (happily I'm presuming) and was willing into give up her dreams of surgery to bring up a family, and support Burke. Cristina needs to be with someone who can challenge her, but is willing to not have family which is why her two main relationships have never worked out. Maybe one day she'll find that person, but we are always lead to think that Cristina would be happy, at be able to cope, on her own. Its a fascinating relationship, looking back on it, and slightly sad in the way that Burke wants her to carry on his legacy while he remains with his family, and Cristina's supposed to give up the (few) people in her life to fulfill that. Of course she will choose to do it, because that's who Cristina has, and always be will. Its just an interesting parallel. Where they are at their stages in life is different.

    I made a comment on fbook about Burke woo-ing her with his holographc heart, because it was kinda sexy! In the way that Burke and Cristina are, their first date was spent in the OR, and that's always going to be like foreplay to her. Of course that wasn't Burkes angle in the end but that's what it felt like to me.

    I loved his speeches, it made me cry in a way because everything he said was true, right down to the last one.

    " Its you with the carrot, its me, chasing you."

    Cristina holds the power, not Burke and she always (probably) has done. As she says, he walking out of her life lead to everything's that's happened to (and for) her, for him it was the chance to have a much wanted family. Having them back together in a romantic sense would ruin all of that, so I'm glad they chose not to go down that route. Whilst Shonda can be cruel, that would be a bit much. Burke always knew Cristina would be amazing as a Cardio surgeon, and now she's come full circle, now she is going to be the new (but probably better) Burke. She has now honed her skill that her old teacher now feels that she, is more than capable of carrying on his legacy. She should go, she doesn't have much in Seattle now apart from old memories and ghosts. She'll never move on from Owen if she stays, and like wise, he never will from her. Like she said, "You leaving was the best thing that ever happened to me"  That was years ago, now, Burke leaving this position, will probably, in a career sense, be one of the best moves she makes.

    Like I said, it seems to have come full circle.

    And while I am sad to see Cristina leave, I think the writers have really come up with a brilliant way of her moving on, and leaving the show. It would of been disappointing if she left after the failure regarding the Harper Avery award (which wasn't actually a failure in the end) just to go off and not be seen again. It's very very like Cristina to leave in this manner, so congratulations Shonda, you've done it well.

    With Or Without You Chapter 23

    "I'm glad there was no punch-up in that part! Poor Phil but at least he seems to have worked most of the reasoning out in his head. I love the little speech from Chris about what skating still means to them. So true. Skating is who they are however much they might occasionally try and deny it."

    And that my dear was exactly what I was going for!!
