I had some mixed feelings about the premiere. I liked some of the outcomes (Meredith's attitude, Alex, Christina, etc.), but definitely not others (Mark! I would've rather it been Arizona - but no- she's only maimed). Having said that, Shonda Rhimes wrote a pretty good response to the hate she's evidently been getting via Twitter. I can appreciate her explanation, and it does make sense. [QUOTE] Lexie: The death of Lexie Grey haunts me. It does. I adored that character and I couldn’t imagine the show without her. It was important to me that her exit would have maximum impact. The plane was going to crash no matter what. I honestly wasn’t sure, because of contract negotiations, who was going to die in that crash. In my early finale plans, once I knew Chyler was leaving the show, Lexie wasn’t originally even on the plane. She was going to die back at the hospital by doing something as simple as slipping and hitting her head. She would have been dying over at Seattle Grace while other people were dying in the woods. Which wasn’t my favorite plan. She would have died without Mark at her side. Without the chance to say goodbye to him. Without the chance to hear that he loved her. I wanted them together when she left us. [/QUOTE] [QUOTE]Mark: For me, this one is the most tragic. I’m VERY attached to Mark Sloan. He’s part of the fabric of the show. Before he ever even appeared on the show, the characters discussed him. He is one of the originals. I had many options for ways Mark could leave the how. But any option that didn’t include him dying required him to a) grieve for Lexie indefinitely and b) willingly walk away from his daughter. We fought about this incessantly in the Writers Room. I didn’t want to Mark to die but, as the writers rightfully argued back, Mark couldn’t abandon Sofia and he certainly couldn’t abandon Callie once Arizona’s leg was amputated. And even if he left, he’d what? Wander the Earth forever loving Lexie, missing his child and never finding happiness. Hmm…that doesn’t sound like what I want for my beloved Mark Sloan. I kept pitching that he goes to L.A. and runs off with Addison. I loved that idea. But it still required Mark to abandon his child and abandon Arizona. And it meant that I’d have to scrap all the plans I had for Addison this season – and her plans are wonderful. Also, that would somehow suggest that everything he said to Lexie when she was dying was easily forgotten. So…I fought it and I debated it and tossed and turned about it but in the end, I had to do what was right for the integrity of the character. Mark would never abandon willingly Sofia and he would never willingly abandon Callie. So Mark dies. And he and Lexie get to be together in a way. Their love remains true.[/QUOTE] You can read the rest [URL="http://www.shondaland.com/photos/230249"]here[/URL].
I'm not sure how I felt about the split screen episode last night as it was a bit gimmicky if you ask me (not to mention we've seen it before elsewhere so it wasn't groundbreaking). I'm generally not a fan of episodes were they use tricks (e.g. Musical; Documentary Film) that are not part of the standard narrative. An another note, we all knew Christina was coming back to Seattle Grace so I felt the "Obi-Wan" proverbs from beyond the grave were a bit cliche (even for this show). Anyway, I thought the episode was just ok although I find myself looking forward to Grey's Anatomy once again and that is a good thing.

I'm about to watch the premier. Just wanted to bump this thread for visibility so discussion can be posted here rather than the Generic television thread.

Wooo Hoo!!

digging this thread up from the past because

HOLY FUCK TONIGHT'S EPISODE IS SO FREAKING GOOD!!!!!

Am I the only one still watching? Shonda still ******* has it! The cop/Bible episode last week was amazing. I'm in awe how they can continue these storylines and still have me interested. 

I've been binging it lately, I just started the 9th season the other day and I'm loving it and it has me questioning my career path cause surgery looks kinda lit. I'm forever pissed that someone spoiled me the 8th season finale :/

I quit after season 10. It's been a good decision. Toward the end, I was just watching to keep up but stopped connecting with the new characters being they were basically Star Trek red shirts, waiting to be killed off. 

Honestly, I really don't do procedurals anymore. Netflix + high-quality cable offerings have me wanting a bit more out of my TV shows. Grey's was groundbreaking at the time, but now it is just the emergency of the week with fall and spring sweeps being some giant tragedy where a bunch of cast members dies. Rinse and repeat.
