Grey's Anatomy S3ep2

1. Why are they dragging out this love triangle of Meredith, Finn and McDreamy? We all know she's going to pick McDreamy. Just get the agony over with already. Maybe this is really annoying me because she annoys me...

2. I love Burke's mom and specifically how she tells Christina what she needs to hear! Thank you sista! Christina is selfish, and if she wants to keep Burke (or rather I want them to stay together), she is going to have to grow up. And hopefully, we saw the first steps toward that when she called him...Preston. :-)

3. The guy with the brain tumor...hilarious. Esp when he told McDreamy to mount Meredith right there. OMG! They do make eyes at each way too much.

4. Grey's definitely doesn't disappoint with the medical cases. They continue to be oddball...kid with a tree through his gut. Definitely a good thing I don't work in the medical field.

5. I wonder how long Torrez lived in the hospital before the Chief found her. I wonder why should moved into the hospital in the first place. I know she told George something about being closer to work and possibly another reason which I can't remember. But can you imagine the drama if it was something else like she's a homeless psycho who is squatting in the hospital and decided to pretend being a doctor?

6. Bailey and Izzie's moment of reconciliation. I absolutely adore those times when we get to see the softer side of Miranda. And this one didn't disappoint.

7. Okay so on the whole, I thought this episode was lacking something from last week's. It didn't seem as good. And then the bathroom door opened in Addison's hotel room and out strolls McSteamy! Let's pause here for a fantasy. *Hhhhhmmmm McSteamy!* I curse the inventor of bath towels! Darn you! *Shakes fist* They were so close to getting the money shot, and you denied me! I shall have my revenge Mr. Towel Inventor Guy!!!! BTW - The show is paused on my TiVo when he's standing there with his right hip exposed. I can't seem to get enough. It's a safe bet that this episode will remain on my TiVo for a long time solely for this scene.

Grey's Anatomy S3ep1

For all you Grey's Anatomy addicts like me, my first impressions from the first episode of the third season:

1. Loved the flashbacks. Finally, we got a chance to see the major events that caused the avalanche. And besides Meredith on the merry-go-round, I felt they were all relevant.

2. Dr. Bailey, aka the Nazi. I loved getting to see the human side of her. I almost lost it several times during this episode. Mainly, when she had to identify Denny and then she apologized, and when she told Omar his wife didn't make it and later she's sitting in the hallway because she doesn't have the strength to move. LOVED IT!

3. Dr. Burke. WTF! We only got to see him in the last few minutes of the episode. I would have preferred much more Burke time. Also, not a big fan of Christina's "don't die". When the scene began, I thought here we go, we're going to get to see the human side of Christina. And then she said that cheesy line, and it totally ruined it.

4. FINN! I adore Finn. And I'm going to state here for the record, I think Meredith should choose Finn. But what I think she's going to do....choose McDreamy. And if there's a race or a ring, I'm throwing my hat in. I heart Finn!

5. Izzy, perfect.

6. Addison, perfect.

7. The way the first half was shot I got the feeling like everyone was going about the day without a clue as to what's going on or what to do, especially all the scenes at the hospital. But at the house with Izzy, I was there right along with her and moving slowly. And for some reason, those feeling disappeared later in the show. I no longer felt the anguish of the day after that night where everything seemed to happen. That's a shame. I would have liked to have seen that carried throughout the episode. It really drew me in as a viewer and made me part of the team.

So, what do you guys think? I needed some other topics to blog about besides Harry, so I thought I'd throw in some of my views regarding Grey's. Should I continue throughout the season? What did you like? What didn't you like? What would you like to see?

R.A.B.

I'm going on vacation, (2 hours and 15 minutes and counting!) and I won't be checking my email (or MySpace). So I thought I'd leave you with some thoughts I've been chewing on for a week or so while I'm gone.

In HBP, Harry finds the fake locket Horcrux with a note to Voldy from the mysterious R.A.B. Lets assume for all intensive purposes that R.A.B. is Regulus Black, Siriuss little brother. [In fact, according to
Red Hen Publications, Rowling has tacitly admitted as much.]

We know that Voldy had ordered a death sentence for Reggie. But why might he have done that? Well, from what we know about the Dark Lord, Reggie a) found out something secret about our fav villain, b) pissed him off, or c) scared him. But lets reserve that last option for Dumbledore.

Quite possibly he pissed him off, by deciding not to be a DeathEater anymore. But why doesnt Voldy just punish him they way he does other disobedient or lazy DEs? Maybe because Reggie also found out a secret. Lets take a look at that note (not in diamond form as in the books, but use your imagination):

To the Dark LordI know I will be dead long before you read thisbut I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret.I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can.I face death in the hope that when you meet your match,you will be mortal once more.R.A.B.

Weve all assumed that the secret referred to in the note is that of the Horcruxes. But maybe not. In fact, Voldy has bragged to his DEs about going down the road towards immortality farther than any other witch or wizard. Is it such a stretch to think that maybe hes entrusted the hiding and protection of said sacred objects to very loyal DEs? Possibly Bellatrix? Consider Spinners End in which Bella brags to Snape about being entrusted in the past by the Dark Lord with his most precious Very curious.

Also, just because the subject is banned from Hogwarts, does not mean that there arent books somewhere that contain information on Horcruxes. Maybe the Blacks had such a book or two in their library. Reggie may have already knew what a Horcrux was when he might have heard Voldy bragging about immortality or Bella boasting about Voldys Most Precious. It wouldnt have taken him long to put the two together to make four.

So what was the secret?
Voldemort is really half-blood and not the pure-blood he claims to be.

But why should this have mattered to Reggie?

Consider the Black family for a moment. They prided themselves on how far back their pure-blood line goes. Mrs. Blacks portrait rants and raves about mud-bloods and blood traitors in her house. Their family motto is Tourjurs Pur (always pure).

So Reggie discovers that Voldemort is really a hypocrite and begotten by a Muggle father. I cant exactly say how he found out but maybe it has something to do with the fact that his mothers, Walburga Black, time at Hogwarts overlapped with Tom Riddles. Anyway, this information made him so intensely angry that he could no longer be part of the fraudulent team.

Ding ding ding! I think weve found a winner.

Reggie threatened to reveal his secret, and Voldy couldnt allow him to continue to live. Reggie, knowing that his head was on the proverbial chopping block, set out to swap the real Horcrux with a fake one including a note thumbing his nose to the Dark Lord.

So how did Reggie succeed in pulling off the swap? That, my children, is a story for another time.

Thoughts anyone?
