“Grey’s Anatomy” recap: “The End is the Beginning is the End”

In Uncategorized on January 20, 2013 at 11:46 am

By Joe Dyton (@dyton99)

Sure, this week’s episode of “Grey’s” lasted an hour, but it all really comes down to the last minute when we found out the insurance company isn’t going to pay the $75 million plane crash settlement and the hospital is going to have to cover it and go bankrupt right? Everything else is was more or less filler.

I’d say it’s going to be interesting to see how the hospital keeps its doors open, but if I were a betting man, I’d say once the Oceanic Six, er the Seattle Grace Five find out their win would bankrupt the hospital, they’ll give the money back and everything will return to status quo. Besides Callie, none of them seem to be too excited about winning anyway. Plus, wouldn’t it be weird if five of the characters were worth $15 million a piece and still working at the hospital? The one way to keep this storyline intersting/going is to have a divide amongst the doctors where some are for giving the money back to save the hospital while others don’t want to.

As for the rest of the show, it was OK. I thought the best non-settlement moment was Owen feeling up Intern Jo thinking it was Cristina. I wish I found Derek and Shane’s ping-pong game as interesting as the doctors did. Jackson’s going away from Mark’s plan would have been more interesting if there was even the slightest sign of distress during the operation. Since it went smoothly, I don’t see why there was so much to-do with Arizona and Derek beforehand. Also on the Jackson front, him hooking up with Intern Stephanie doesn’t feel so taboo since we saw Derek/Meredith and Burke/Cristina in the same situation eight years ago. I’ve given this show enough of a hard time about recycling storylines; I won’t get into it again here.

A few thoughts and I’m done….

*It’s good to see the show taking some time to show Richard grieving over the loss of Adele. Time will tell if all’s forgotten by next week’s show. It’s interesting what this show chooses to harp on and gloss over at times.

*I like the Alex-Inter Jo relationship. I hope it stays where it is. It would be nice to see Alex have another female friend where that’s all that is going on. “Grey’s” can’t help itself when it comes to pairing up characters though. I mean look at what happened to best friends Jackson and April.

*I don’t blame Mer, Derek, Cristina and Arizona for being a little uncomfortable with the idea of Callie’s celebration dinner. I agree with Meredith that their settlement does feel a little like “blood money.” It was nice to see the dinner end well with Meredith revealing her pregnancy and Derek forgiving Owen.

*If Owen accidentially feeling up Intern Jo was the funniest moment of the episode, Bailey’s beach incident on her honeymoon was a close second.

* Lines of the Night…

-“Mo money, mo problems.”

-“Tell your twisted sister, she’ll be happy for you.”

-“I thought I was getting an iPad.”

-“Webber didn’t want the pity cookies from his girlfriend about his dead wife.”

-“My life isn’t all about the cookie.”

-“He’s giving us $15 million. Each.”

-“I should have been on that (darn) plane.”

-“Except Mer, and she probably wanted to (get together with Alex) at some point.”

-“You’re the new babysitter who doesn’t know where the wipes are at.”

Well, that’s all I have for this week. I hope you all enjoyed the show. Until next time…
