This was a very weird episode of Grey’s Anatomy. That’s not to say I didn’t like it, it was just strange.
From the bizarre horror movie opening and creepy musical score, to the hospital (and the gang) pretty much falling apart at the seams, I found myself strangely enthralled by this freaky hour. It definitely didn’t feel like a typical episode of the show but that’s not always a bad thing I guess.
I have a big issue with the gang spending all of their winnings on the hospital. I hope that won’t be the case (it probably will) because it totally ruins the wish fulfillment thing us audience members had going. Christina’s reaction to the suggestion with her laughing in Mer’s face was remarkably satisfying and I wish she didn’t give in. Nevertheless it makes for some great drama, particularly with Christina hiding their purchase from Owen.
Bits & Scalpels
– Loved Arizona exploding at Derek about feeling “guilty”. He sure has been a punching bag lately.
– Derek’s picture all over the hospital was pretty amusing.
– Ice Bitch and Mr. Maxi-Pad made me laugh. This show always amazes me with the variations of patients they manage to come up with.
– Bailey screaming out at the cancer patient’s dad and urging him to leave Seattle Grace was pretty powerful.
– A Rihanna song on Grey’s Anatomy? I hate to say it, but it kinda worked.
– I’m rarely entertained by April’s storylines but the twist with the Paramedic himself being a virgin, and her lying since she’s technically a born-again one is just delightful. I definitely see the appeal of a little white lie and I can’t wait till it explodes in her face.
– I’m so amused by Jo dating someone else and Alex being jealous. I like seeing the jackass miserable.
– One of my favorite musical discoveries of the last week is Ellie Goulding’s Dead In The Water. So imagine my excitement when Grey’s used it to bookend the hour. I only wish the scenes themselves were more emotional to fully capitalize on the song’s power.
Christina: What are you talking about? Mousy, speak!
Alex: They had to be together. It’s just right you know.
Jo: That’s beautiful. You should write poetry or greeting cards.
Alex: I’m just saying it could work.
Jo: Do you have a blog I could follow?
Alex: Shut up.
