Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod. What a frakkin fantastic episode!
1. Presuming this episode is continuing in time right behind last week's, how does someone only tread water for 30 seconds and then give up? Maybe she can't swim or the shock or fall knocked the wind/fight out of her. Or then again maybe a few minutes has passed from the time she fell in to when we caught back up with her. But holy crap she was as blue as her scrubs when McDreamy pulled her out of the water.
2. Every single one of them had the same look of shock and disbelief on their faces when they saw/heard about Meredith. Probably the last thing they expected.
3. How just like a boss to give you a project without any guidelines and then say figure it out. But Alex rose to the challenge in a very creative way. I can only imagine what the craziness would have been like if he hadn't figured out a system. If only he hadn't been so eager to find the identity of the pregnant Jane Doe, he wouldn't have gotten his or the husband's hopes up. I'm interested to know why Alex is so heavily invested in this woman. I wonder if it goes beyond the ferry accident or just some subconscious connection when he pulled that beam off of her when everyone else had left her for dead.
4. Just like Christina to think of herself during such a tragedy. Because telling Meredith you're engaged is more important than helping people find lost loved ones or saving lives. But they can't all of a sudden have Christina act noble all the time. That would be weird.
5. When Izzie was drilling holes in that guy's head, I couldn't even watch the TV. I have no idea if they even showed a bit of it but the thought that she was taking a power drill you could buy at Wal-Mart and putting holes in some guys head, I just couldn't watch. How do you suppose they close those holes? You can't really stitch or staple bone. Maybe metal plates? I really have no clue but the thought of holes in my skull makes me squeamish.
6. So sweet of McSteamy to sit by McDreamy and offer support. Those are the best friends in the world: the ones that when you're really grieving or struggling provide more comfort and say more by their silence and presence than any one could ever say with words. And McDreamy let him stay. McSteamy at the core isn't that bad of a guy! And perhaps we're seeing the beginning of the mending of their relationship. I'd really like to see McSteamy, Burke and McDreamy on boy's night out. I think it'd be hilarious.
7. Now the important part. Just thinking about it, I'm starting to hyperventilate again. Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod. So I screamed a little when they showed Dylan (the bomb guy in case you forgot his name played by Kyle Chandler formerly of Early Edition and currently of Friday Night Lights the television show). And then the camera cut to Denny. I'm sure my neighbors thought I was being tortured or something because my scream was so loud. Don't get me wrong. They're not going to kill off Meredith. For goodness sake, she's the namesake of the show. If there's no Meredith Grey, there's no Grey's Anatomy (no matter how much I might wish it). It's like doing the Cosby Show without Bill Cosby or The Sopranos without the Sopranos. It doesn't work. However, I don't think Shonda Rimes would bring these two guys back, especially Denny, without a reason. They must have some point to prove. But what? Offer Meredith guidance for picking a specialty? Tell her to forgive her mother? Tell her to marry McDreamy? None of those seem right or big enough that would warrant the return of Dylan and Denny. I do so love seeing Denny again though. I miss him.
I would love to hear your thoughts and theories. So comment if you have any!
