An amusing enough hour. I would have imagined things would have been a bit more exciting this close to the finale but this was still an entertaining hour that did a good enough job of moving things forward.
I’m not sure if dragging out Christina & Hunt’s problems this long has been the best decision. I know I didn’t enjoy their therapy episode, but this hour was handled in a better manner particularly with the various flashback moments of their relationship interspersed throughout. Moreover, I did enjoy Hunt recounting the exact details of his one night stand and Christina’s range of emotions from painful screams to laughing at herself for crying over a “little boy.” It was undeniably an excellent performance by Sandra Oh who never fails to disappoint.
As for the rest of the hour, I enjoyed McSteamy taking over as Chief (through his sneakiness) as he continuously encouraged Derek to “rise” and clashed with Webber. Actually it struck me as I was watching that it would do the show good to make him Chief on a permanent basis as the character deftly balances humor and drama whereas Hunt only caters to the drama part.
Finally I enjoyed the ladies night storyline. Teddy has been a pleasure to watch all season and it was nice to see Bailey, Arizona, and Callie band together and agree to spend some quality time with her.
All in all, a fun hour but I’m still waiting for the greatness to return.
