Suits Finale Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

I just finished watching the finale of Suits and I thought I would share my thoughts.

I feel like they crammed a lot into this episode. Like they were really pushing it.

First, they finally sorted the Faye issue once and for all. I gotta say this was a little anti-climactic. I was expecting a more dramatic court scene rather than Harvey settling it in the meeting room just him and Faye.

I liked seeing everyone in the same room together though, we love teamwork.

It just felt like after all the building up of this big thing it fizzled out quite quickly. Not that we had much time to process the fact that Faye was actually gone for good because Louis was getting married.

This seemed so out of left field for me for some reason. I guess because they didn’t really mention it? Okay I know Louis asked Shelia to marry him before she gave birth and everything but I didn’t realise it was just going to come up like that. Especially because the Faye thing kind of eclipsed everything else and we never heard about Louis wedding planning, which if it’s Louis ya know that was a thing he was going to be involved in.

It made sense though, you can’t end the show forever without seeing them get married or giving birth to their child. Which, by the way why did they throw in that unnecessary drama of Shelia almost dying? Am I the only one that felt like that didn’t need to be a thing? Especially so close to the end of the episode and then to have it all be fine…Ugh.

Then we come to Donna and Harvey getting married. I cried, for sure, but it seemed so rushed. And I know they justified it and all that but you can’t just have Harvey being like “lol this won’t be us for a while” and then turn around and be like “jk marry me now though”. I felt like it wasn’t their style, I don’t think we needed to see them get married to know they were endgame.

Oh, and I was so sad Rachel wasn’t there with Mike. I know this is because Meghan Markle is now royalty but still haha. It just seemed weird and then I was surprised when they showed clips of her from the old seasons because she’s now married to a prince and to see her in an actress context is weird now. But yeah, I just felt like it was weird she wasn’t there, even though I know why she couldn’t have been. I think it would have been cool if there was an exception just so she could have stood next to Mike at Louis’s wedding but whatever.

Despite having issues with the finale I did like it. I mean it wrapped everything up in a nice way and I think it was great that Harvey decided to go and work with Mike at the end. I so cried when Harvey and Donna were saying goodbye to Louis it was so cute.

Plus the Mike and Harvey interview scene at the end was super cute too! I’m gonna miss them a lot.

Oh and those old scenes they threw in there, thought it was a bit random but I did enjoy them. I feel like they could have included way more but I know for the runtime purposes of the show it was kind of short.

Also, I am happy that they decided to make Katrina a named partner and put her name on the wall, that was a good choice guys. I love Katrina. I am sad she and Brian never worked out but I would have loved to see her be in the big leagues with the rest of the gang.

So those were all my thoughts on the Suits season finale. Overall the last season was really good, I wasn’t sure how to feel about the show after Mike decided to leave but I think it did well. Like all shows, there were times during the middle where I didn’t know if I would still keep watching or not but I stuck with it and now we are here.

I always get sad when one of my shows ends because it means I gotta find a new show, which I hate doing because it always takes me ages to find one lol but I’m sure I will.

On the bright side, other shows I watch have begun to return to our screens like Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. So I guess I have some things to keep me occupied while I search for a new show.

If you have any TV suggestions please leave them below!

Orange Is the New Black Season 7 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

I just finished binge-watching Orange Is the New Black and I thought I would share my thoughts – obviously, this is going to be a spoiler central blog post so if you still haven’t seen it then stay away!

I think I’m going to break down my thoughts per character because that makes the most sense to me, unlike with my Grey’s Anatomy posts I haven’t been taking notes as I’ve gone along so I might forget things but we see how we go.

Piper

Piper-Chapman-Taylor-Schilling.png

So when the series started I was confused because I totally forgot that Piper got out of jail the last season. Well, in this season we see her trying to adjust to the outside world. It’s been an interesting journey with Piper because in the very beginning I found her super annoying, but as the show progressed and we stopped focusing on her as much she became more tolerable.

Honestly seeing her on the outside was nice, it was good to see her getting things back on track. I liked that she was able to make a new friend in Zelda and the relationship they shared, I just wished that they had been able to keep it platonic tbh.

All in all though I am super glad she ended up with Alex, I totally cried when I saw that Piper had chosen her. I mean there’s always one couple that is End Game on a TV show and Alex and Piper were it. Can’t complain.

Alex

large.jpg

Okay so Alex has always been just an okay character for me, and I felt like this season she was kind of dull…

I mean sure she was doing the phone charger selling thing but it was repetitive and nothing exciting ever really happened with it. Except for the McCullough thing, I kind of saw it coming but I wish it didn’t happen. Only because Alex should have been trying to stay faithful to Piper. I do wish good things for McCullough she’s been through a lot.

Anyway, like I said above, I’m glad she and Piper are working it out even though she got transferred.

Nicky

orange-is-the-new-black-nicky-750x522

Oh Nicky, she been through so much. She was always one of my favourites.

My heart breaks for her because things were falling apart towards the end. Nicky herself was fine but I mean with Red and Lorna it was not good and she was trying to take over the role of mother but it wasn’t really working.

Plus she didn’t even get her love! The girl she was seeing was deported and that was sad too. I needed her to have one win this season but she wasn’t getting any. She did have her moments but still…sad.

Then at the end they were showing the cast saying goodbye and they showed her saying her lines and she was crying and I was crying and I’m gonna miss her so much.

Suzanne

SuzanneNew.png

Love her. Don’t have much else to say.

She has always been the ray of sunshine in an otherwise depressing episode. And then she got to be mayor of the chicken coop and it was adorable.

So yay Suzanne.

Taystee

oitnb-7x04-taystee.jpg

Taystee went THROUGH IT this season.

I was confused about what was going on with her at the beginning of the season because I didn’t remember last season at all but I pieced it together as the season went on.

I can’t believe she was going to take her own life – I know everyone is upset that the episode didn’t give a warning when they showed her suicide attempt – I was shocked too because I thought as we saw the set up for it we weren’t going to see the actual attempt. It was heartbreaking.

Luckily, Taystee didn’t die and remained throughout the season. I’m so glad that there was always someone there or a reason to pull her back.

And the last reason, the memory with Poussey – I LOST IT. Honestly, the show was playing with my emotions this season, bringing back old characters just so we could be emotional all over again. My heart.

I loved that Taystee was able to make a foundation in Poussey’s name, it was deserved.

Pennsatucky

7.jpg

Like all the other characters, Pennsatucky has grown a lot since the first season.

I liked seeing her relationship with Suzanne grow when they were put in Florida together. It was cute.

In this season I liked that she was trying to get her GED and was engaged with the teacher. It was great, things were going well for her…

So it BROKE ME when she died. SHE PASSED HER GED EXAM SHE COULD HAVE HELD OUT I WAS SO MAD. I feel like this is the one reason why I wanted to make this blog post – just to let y’all know this wasn’t cute and I just couldn’t believe that it was happening…

SHE DESERVED BETTER. But it happens I guess…still so sad.

Cindy

OITNB.png

I don’t have a lot to say about her other than I’m sad that her and Taystee never made amends. I am also sad that she ended up living on the streets because of Taystee’s letter but I guess I’m glad she was able to make things better for herself and was making things right for her daughter. We love reformed inmates.

Daya

Dascha_Polanco_insert_courtesy_Netflix.jpg

I was not expecting her to be the one that killed ‘Daddy’. Also kind of glad that ‘Daddy’ wasn’t gonna stick around this season because I always thought that whole storyline was kind of crazy.

But it’s also crazy that Daya went all gangster and took over the drug operation. She never really suited that role and I am sad that she went from this young woman who had a cute relationship with that guard to a drug addict/dealer. Yikes. (Also side note remember when that guard literally just disappeared and we never heard from him again – what was up with that? – Like I know the dude went on to be on How To Get Away With Murder but he could have come back for like one episode at least???)

Anyway, yeah wasn’t expecting Daya to be a gang leader though I feel like she gets a lot of help from that one girl who’s name I can’t remember. I was expecting more drama from it but then I guess there wasn’t really anyone else selling drugs…until Aleida ended up back in jail lol.

Joe Caputo

oitnb4-episodio-final-caputo-revela-la-verdad

He was always a good guy. I don’t remember what happened with that girl who exposed him for sexually harassing her but at least Joe eventually realised that he was in the wrong. I always feel like he means well but it takes him a while to realise that not all his ideas are good ones.

I like his relationship with Fig and I’m glad they were still together. They balance each other out.

It’s also great that Joe was helping the inmates again – it’s cute that he still wanted to be involved.

Lorna

Lorna-Morello-.jpg

Lorna definitely wasn’t handling things well as the season went on. I mean my heart just broke for her losing the baby and also possibly her husband…

I would have liked to see her get out of prison and live a happy life with her husband – I think she deserved that.

Red

0b4ae4b47f08c3b7beb2b75bc7027b30.jpg

Again. Heartbroken.

Seeing Red lose her memory is so sad. I wanted more for her, she was always a fighter. But I guess it doesn’t always turn out that way. It hurts a lot to think that it took everyone so long to notice. :/

And so this brings us to the end of my thoughts – I know I’ve missed some people but I felt like I didn’t need to say much about them. Or I have forgotten lol.

I’m still sad that a lot of things have been left open-ended – I mean we don’t know for sure what happened to a lot of people and so it was left up to us to interpret what happened. I mean I suppose it’s not the worst thing but sometimes you just want solid endings for people.

Now that the show is done I can add it to the list of things I will probably rewatch in the future. I think it would be good to rewatch the whole thing and binge-watch properly to see the full timeline, because so much has happened it’s hard to remember – especially if it happened before the riot.

But yeah, I guess it’s time to move on to other TV shows…if you have any suggestions leave them below!

Currently Watching: July 2019

2018-09-07_1847

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, mostly because I’ve been engrossed in Grey’s Anatomy the past few months. Now that I’ve finished Grey’s and have been free of university I have had time to watch some TV. So here are the shows that I have been watching recently!

Lucifer

16-9.jpg

This was a suggestion from my boyfriend after finishing Grey’s so I have been making my way through. I’m currently at the end of season 3 so should be on my way to season 4 in no time. Honestly wasn’t sure what to think about it at first but it did grow on me. I didn’t really know what the show was about before I started it but if you told me it was about Lucifer basically being a detective I probably wouldn’t have believed you lol.

Big Little Lies

big-little-lies.jpeg

I started this because I got a free pass for NowTV from McDonald’s Monopoly and they don’t have a lot of box sets on there that I wanted to watch except this one. I really enjoyed the first season of the show and the end gave me some Pretty Little Liars vibes so I was excited about the second season. Though sadly season 2 is not really doing it for me, I don’t know what it is but it’s not as good as the first season :/

Ugly Betty

1200x630bb

So I started rewatching this last year and then kind of gave up but then they put the show on Amazon Prime and I’ve been binging ever since. I actually just finished rewatching it today. Ugly Betty is a fabulous show and I have loved rewatching it this past month, I feel like I’ve never gotten through a show this fast before just because I’ve had it on basically nonstop lately.

Shark Tank

shark-tank

I wanted something to watch on Netflix one night and decided to finally tackle something on my watch list. So I started to watch Shark Tank. Since then I have kind of been obsessed, I just think it’s interesting to see the kind of ideas people have and what the sharks actually invest in. Sometimes they invest in the weirdest things. I also liked that there are tons of episodes on Netflix which makes it easier to binge.

Glee

glee_season_4_cast

I’ve been watching Glee here and there as well. I love Glee, it’s the kind of show that’s had it’s ups and downs but I really enjoyed it. Honestly growing up most of the songs on my iTunes were Glee covers and I still love them lol. So yeah been enjoying some Glee lately too.

So these are the main shows that I’ve been watching lately, you know when I haven’t been reading a bunch because I have also been doing so much of that in case you couldn’t tell. I’m honestly proud of how much I’ve been able to read but also how much TV I have been able to consume since finishing university lol. Anyway, I’m going to get back to enjoying the time I have left with no responsibility and I’ll be back soon with a new book review 😛

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Here we are this is it. The last season of Grey’s Anatomy I needed to watch before I was all caught up.

This season had a lot going on, although when I think back I think the main focus really was on Owen’s love triangle with Amelia and Teddy. I felt like out of everything this season I was commenting on that a lot lol.

However, the show had a lot of other good things this season and definitely had me crying on multiple occasions. The show is definitely in a good place right now and I am so excited to see what the future holds.

But for right now, here are my thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy season 15:

  • Hi Chris Carmack! Our new ortho God – replacing Callie – it’s been a while since we had someone in that department
  • Who is the Asian guy with him though? Who also has a thing for glasses – hi we see you
  • Lol okay but Teddy coming back and going to Owen’s and Betty answering the door and her freaking out and everything – I did see it coming but I wish she had stuck around…
  • This definitely isn’t the last we’ve seen of Teddy but like I need Owen to know he’s gonna have a child!
  • Honestly, I was rooting for Amelia and Owen but if he can be with Teddy? I wouldn’t be mad about it…
  • Alex didn’t get on the board, but it’s okay because Bailey just made him Chief? Lol can’t wait to see where this goes
  • Yasss Jo Wilson coming up with the innovative ideas – excited to see where this goes
  • Meredith having all the dreams about all the hospital men lol same girl same. But also, I guess it’s time for her to get back on the horse. But also RIP Derek we still love you and miss you, I see Meredith retired the ferry boat scrub cap last season and everything ugh my heart
  • Alex as chief for one day and already spending all the dolla and firing that intern for the second time – love that
  • So Jackson just left out of nowhere – cool, cool I know he’s not leaving the show but when does he come back?
  • Also Jo is the only one to get married and actually change her name – cute
  • C’mon Meredith with the shopping, excited to see where this goes
  • Okay Meredith dating Ted Mosby is something I would have never imagined so thanks Grey’s lol – but seriously he was basically the same guy on Grey’s except he did software and then he said that one thing and ruined it all, classic Ted
  • Link vs DeLuca for Meredith’s affection huh? Interesting lol
  • YASS glasses and the other guy kissing in the lift – I support that 100% I hope they get together
  • Catherine with cancer :/ gosh darn it nothing is going well for Richard…
  • Plus Richard going to that bar and smashing up everything – loved that, I mean yes he got arrested but I stand behind it
  • Maggie and Jackson are over now? That didn’t last long…
  • I mean I understand why Maggie would be angry that Jackson was talking to everybody but her but at the same time she wasn’t exactly talking to him either…
  • Also Teddy you totally had a chance to tell Owen and you still didn’t come on girl
  • Oh my gosh and also when Meredith was walking through the hospital on the Day of the Dead episode and they had to have George come out of nowhere and everyone else I cried like a baby – like GEORGE still not over it…Lexie and Derek and Mark too – AND THE DOG just hit me right in the feels. They had no right
  • I cried when Amelia was hugging Betty when she came back – I’M AN EMOTIONAL WRECK THIS SEASON – but seeing Amelia loving Betty like her own child, so beautiful
  • Love that Kim and glasses are having sex in the ambulance during a storm while everyone else is stuck in lifts because the power lines have fallen – you better keep those two safe or I swear to God – also yeah I caught the Asian guy’s name in this episode but still not glasses? My bad…
  • Okay so Teddy drops the bomb and now her, Owen and Amelia be stuck in that lift – ready for the T to be spilt honey
  • COME THROUGH DeLuca throwing his hat into the ring – we love a good love triangle. Though nothing will ever be as fun as Derek vs the vet from the early days lol
  • I LOVE that Alex was the one to catch glasses and Kim lol I love that he gave them advice about rooms that lock – I see you Karev, I see you
  • DeLuca speaking Italian to Meredith ugh I love it. And I loved even MORE that she spoke Italian too – I ship it
  • BUT we can’t discount Link because he’s still playing
  • I hope that they can save Catherine because so far all of Richard’s great loves have died and I just don’t know how he will survive if Catherine also dies…
  • Owen now has to decide if he wants to be with Teddy or Amelia and at this point I really don’t know who I want him to be with because he’s good with both of them. And he kind of has children with both of them so like…what’s he gonna do lol
  • Okay so Owen chose Amelia and he and Teddy will always be friends? I guess I can be okay with that. Especially because it seems like Teddy is getting cosy with Tom
  • I hope Bailey and Ben work things out, I mean she’s getting help for her problem and she working through stuff but they so cute together
  • Also yasss Meredith and DeLuca – when I first heard about these two I wasn’t sure about it but…the show has made it grow on me
  • Okay so Betty’s parents are now in the picture and they almost took Leo away from Owen – man that would have been heartbreaking, it’s sad that Betty is going though…
  • Meanwhile, Teddy and Tom are becoming a thing and Owen is not cool with it lol
  • Ooh DeLuca’s dad has arrived, I wonder what trouble this is going to bring…
  • Not really trouble but a baby in a bag? I don’t know if this is going to be genius or the start of his mental decline
  • Also love Catherine and her family having food in the limo – it’s cute, love a good family moment
  • I 100% stan this Schmit and Kim relationship it is too cute for words I can’t even deal
  • Owen and Amelia officially over…kind of sad about it because I wanted Owen to have a good partner after Cristina. But at least he has his baby which is super cute so yay for Owen! And he even has another baby on the way so double yay!
  • Jo finding out about her biological mother…I wonder what this will lead to
  • So DeLuca’s dad sticking around didn’t last long, didn’t think it would tbh at least he didn’t really put a baby in a bag though – still seems super crazy
  • Look at Bailey advocating for those who need help with their mental health – yasss queen you tell Alex to look after his mum
  • Amelia and Link? I mean from the start of the episode when she ran into him at the conference I KNEW something was going to happen between them. It’s just so soon after Owen, I don’t think this will be anything good either lol
  • Okay so like I know that Teddy is with Tom and everything but her moments with Owen and the baby this season have been too cute so I need more of that
  • The episode where Jo is helping that patient deal with her injuries from rape was so powerful. I don’t really have other words to describe it.
  • I just hope Jo feels she can open up to Alex about everything that happened with her birth mum, although I totally understand that she needs her own time to process and heal
  • Love that Alex was getting the interns to do all his Chief paperwork lol he truly was a great Chief
  • Meghan came back just to call Owen out on his shit and to get some help – interesting. I mean I know his life was messy but I didn’t know if he really needed to talk to someone about it but there ya go
  • Also Amelia’s other sisters are crazy – I almost forgot that Derek had other sisters haha at least she also has Meredith and Maggie, they good ones
  • Btw Link is such a cutie standing up for Amelia with her family maybe this is the good relationship Amelia has post-tumour
  • Okay I know Jo is going through this thing and doesn’t wanna talk to anyone about it but I’m super worried about her I think she needs to go to therapy it seems to be working for Owen
  • Jackson asked Maggie to move in with him and she is freaking out lol that’s fun
  • Jo is definitely having a breakdown right now someone help her please
  • Right okay Owen who you going to choose because as much as I like love triangles I want this one to end
  • DeLuca told Meredith he loved her and she blanked him – it was sweet but definitely too soon for her
  • Bless Meredith for helping Jo get back on her feet. their relationship has grown so much! I remember when Meredith hated Jo lol
  • DeLuca taking the fall for Meredith gosh darn it man is it possible to love him more? What an angel
  • Also come through Teddy and Hunt! They better make it work or I swear I’m done with them
  • Please tell me Hunt, Schmitt and that blood donor girl make it through the fog alive…we need people to be saved we don’t need more death please and thanks
  • This season finale had me all over the place
  • First of all, Owen and Teddy having their baby – yes so about this, excited to see their family life in the next season. But also super sad that Tom is going to have his heart broken I mean he was just sitting in that apartment all day building baby furniture for a woman who is about to dump him and he doesn’t even know :/
  • Maggie and Jackson went camping and it was a disaster but I could sense that coming. I guess this is the end of that relationship – but also Jackson went out in the fog and never came back and I kind of want him to stick around on the show but something tells me this could be his exit?
  • Amelia deciding to find out who she is without Owen is smart. I think it’s good she’s not just going to jump into this relationship with Link because it would just be another cycle of on again, off again and I’m ready for better things for Amelia
  • Is Meredith actually turning herself in and going to jail? This is going to be interesting. I really don’t want her to go down for this but honestly with the way this show goes she will probably get away with it. I mean Bailey reminded us all of the Izzie Elvat wire situation and they seemed to be okay with that? Lol wild times
  • Jo is getting the help she needs and I am proud of her. My heart breaks for Alex though not wanting to let her go but I think this is going to be good for them.
  • Also yes they got the blood donor to save that child so that was great thanks guys
  • And once again, Kim and Schmitt prove to be the cutest couple on the show.

So here we are guys, I’m all caught up!

It has been a real rollercoaster. But I have loved it a lot. And I’m excited for the next season already!

I also think this brings an end to these Grey’s Anatomy blog posts – it’s been fun but I am excited to move on to posting other things on my blog, and while I will still be following the show I feel there is no need for these posts to continue. This is just something I wanted to do to share my thoughts when I was behind, now I can livetweet with everyone else lol

But it has been great, and I do like when I have regular content to post here so I’m sure I’ll be back with another blog post soon enough, it just won’t be Grey’s Anatomy related. Now if you’ll excuse me…I think I need to find a new show to watch.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Grey’s got it’s groove back! So after me saying the last season wasn’t great, I actually really liked season 14.

That being said the show did not do well this season when writing out two of its main characters. If there was anything to fault this TV show for it would definitely be for the way it decides to get rid of people. Some people have had great exits and others you can tell they didn’t really think about…

But they are good at bringing in so many new people you kind of forget about the old ones…

That being said if there was ever like a good reunion episode where they just brought everyone back I wouldn’t be mad. Even if you could just bring George, Derek, Lexie, Sloan and everyone else back from the dead like that would be cool, I wouldn’t even care I need that lol.

Anyway, this season I enjoyed. I liked seeing all the people there for Owen at the beginning and the innovation contest being brought into Grey Sloan. I love seeing the doctors excel and get competitive. And I’m even more excited to see what season 15 brings, but for now here are my thoughts on season 14 of Grey’s Anatomy:

  • So Owen’s sister is back and is played by the actress that plays Scottie in Suits – hi how are ya? Also guess they couldn’t get the actress back who played Owen’s sister in his imagination that one time.
  • It’s so weird to see Teddy back again after all this time, I missed her, she looks great. I can’t believe someone that left the show actually came back AND she sticks around! (Yes I looked it up) excited for her to be back
  • It’s so great to see Owen with Riggs, Teddy, his mum and his sister – it’s cute to see him have people, I feel like he’s been lonely lately because Amelia is being the worst
  • Like hi your husband’s sister just came back and you are dealing with stuff but you should be there for him because he’s your husband? Come on guys
  • DeLuca has a sister? Nice. I’m glad it didn’t take Arizona long to get over the fact Minnick ghosted her lol
  • I could sense a Maggie and Jackson thing blooming at the end of last season and when April told Maggie that’s how Jackson felt it confirmed it – BUT they are being super awkward around each other now – I guess Jackson wanted things to play out a different way
  • Okay so Amazon Prime just don’t give you subtitles for what DeLuca and his sister say in Italian so…that’s fun? I like to know what people are saying even in another language – I don’t care if you can get the gist I feel like I’m missing out
  • Update: They do provide subtitles when it’s important to the story otherwise it’s just DeLuca and his sister yelling at each other in Italian lol
  • Yes Jo and Alex get back together! Finally
  • I loved the female energy in episode 2 with Bailey throwing her heels out, Meredith and Amelia doing badass surgeries like yasss girl power
  • AMELIA HAS A TUMOUR – damn – now we see what’s going on
  • Okay but Harper Avery dying was so random lol
  • So Riggs definitely leaves with Megan right? That’s how this goes? Eh ain’t gonna miss him now that she’s alive and he’s got no reason to be working there he can go
  • DeLuca’s sister is all about spreading the joy and orgasms lol I hope she sticks around
  • Okay I’m going to say no she doesn’t because Arizona is like “I accidentally broke up with her and told her Sophia’s coming home” and she’s been on Tinder so I guess that’s over
  • Actually she does stay and gets with Owen lol DeLuca hates his life, every roommate he gets his sister sleeps with them – messy messy
  • Love that Jackson is rich now and is just like “just bought a boat bitches”
  • I really like when you see all the guys together – we’ve had a lot of girl bonding on the show recently so I think it’s good when we see the guys together too
  • So I guess that’s both Megan and Riggs out of the picture – I did kind of like seeing them both in the army with Owen and Teddy – that is a spin-off I could watch – those characters together are just great
  • Also love Meredith on the cover that magazine – slay queen, slay
  • AND a Harper Avery nomination yassss – so proud of Meredith
  • So because Jackson’s mum told Jackson said he and Maggie are siblings that’s stopping that right? I mean I was thinking about this when Maggie came to dinner I was like…Catherine and Richard are married and Maggie and Jackson are their children so…yeah okay let’s not have that a thing I mean it’s not really bad but since they said siblings now I can’t – I mean sure they did it on Gossip Girl with Dan and Serena but I just could not see it be a thing on Grey’s lol
  • I cried like a baby watching Meredith get her Harper Avery – she deserved it, she been through so much – Derek would have been so proud :’)
  • Wow so the hospital has been hacked and everything is going to shit – great cool – love a disaster
  • And Jo’s husband is back at the worst possible time – of course
  • Also can’t believe Ben is quitting surgery to be a firefighter now lol make up your mind bro
  • So Jo’s husband comes back asks for a divorce, gets hit by a drunk driver and dies…wow lol I mean he totally deserved it but all that stuff happened so fast
  • Come through hacker intern who saved the hospital – but what did the FBI end up doing then? lol
  • I can’t believe they hired that glasses intern – he’s such a mess
  • And then there’s April who is totally losing her faith – sleeping with that intern, no good will come of this
  • Jackson and Maggie are doing the dating thing? There’s definitely feelings there so…are we on board with this? I guess we don’t have to be because Maggie is currently dating some guy called Clive lol
  • It’s so sad that Bailey and Ben had to give Tucker that talk with the police 😦 I mean I know it’s the reality we live in but it broke my heart
  • Are they ever gonna explain more of a backstory for DeLuca and the intern or what lol
  • I see Hunt and DeLuca’s sister are out and Arizona and her are back in just like that – I wanted more for Hunt guys he still needs someone good
  • Oh and Bailey and a heart attack? So not cute y’all I’m glad she’s okay
  • Love when the doctors are competing against each other – like a good healthy competition
  • Wow April has gone totally off the rails – reminds me of when Cristina decided to work at the bar haha
  • Yass Alex and Jo finally engaged – they so cute
  • So DeLuca’s intern finally said I love you, now what happens?
  • So Maggie’s bf was married lol awkward. Luckily Jackson has swooped in – are we here for this or are we not? Still on the fence
  • Meredith can not give up on her invention just because some “aunt” came over for her own agenda – that is not the Grey way
  • Teddy and Hunt were almost a thing…so close… :/ I definitely was happy crying when they were together though like please make this a thing
  • So everyone is okay with the Jackson and Maggie thing – okay cool I guess I can get on board
  • I knew Meredith wasn’t gonna give up on her idea, thank God Jo talked some sense into her
  • Also it seems really weird that Sofia randomly decided to move back with Arizona…did anyone else feel this?
  • Another thing is why hasn’t anyone done anything about April yet like I know people have tried to talk to her but like can they try harder lol
  • Okay so April has found God again and everything is okay, I’m glad it kind of resolved itself but at the same time I thought it was going to take longer
  • I can’t believe that Alex and Amelia couldn’t save Kimmy 😦 I guess they can’t save everyone but it was so hopeful in the beginning
  • What did Jackson do to ruin the Averys? He definitely should have looked into that lawsuit
  • DeLuca’s girlfriend leaving because she ran a red light and almost got deported is a wild one. Though not that mad about it because their relationship never really developed much at all – seemed like a filler thing
  • Hunt looking to adopt is super cute, it’s about time he gets a kid, he deserves happiness in his life
  • Wow that intern thinks he’s so big by suing for wrongful termination – mate just accept you lied and moved on
  • Yasss Amelia stepping up to be a sponsor – she’s come so far
  • Alright so Harper Avery was a terrible privileged white guy that sexually harassed a lot of women – I should have seen it coming but I didn’t. At least now the foundation is going to do well because Catherine is getting the credit she deserves for being a boss ass bitch – we stan Catherine Fox!
  • They used Sofia for a crappy plotline to have Arizona leave the show? Um No. Unacceptable. She needs a better exit than that. And Callie definitely deserved a better exit too like what is it with this show and its crappy endings for characters? I’ll always be grateful they didn’t kill them off but at the same time EVEN STEPHANIE THE INTERN WHO WAS ON LIKE TWO SEASONS had a better write-off than this…
  • And they think that they can have April almost die and then just decide to leave and go off with Matthew the end? Nah again not the best exit. I mean I KNEW as soon as I seen Matthew that something was up. No guys.
  • I can’t with these crappy exits.
  • On the bright side, I am so glad that Alex and Jo’s wedding happened, maybe not the way they planned but I still enjoyed it
  • Also Teddy is back and she’s pregnant!!!! I love this. I can’t wait to see where this goes…

ONE SEASON LEFT GUYS.

It’s been a long journey and I’ve loved it so much. I mean normally when I binge watch TV shows I have to take a break from watching them because I get sick of the characters but not with Grey’s – the only time I’ve went a day without watching Grey’s is if I’m with my boyfriend because he started to watch it with me in the beginning but we were getting through it too slowly so he let me watch on my own. He’s literally only seen the first couple of seasons lol.

So yeah, I’ve been watching Grey’s what feels like non-stop for the last few months and I can’t say anything bad about it. If you want a binge-worthy TV show this is it AND it’s not even like it’s short AND IT’S STILL GOING. So I mean it’s a win win situation.

But yes, one season left to go – the big one season 15. It sounds weird but like this seemed like something I wasn’t going to get to when I first started watching. I mean you hear the show has a load of seasons and you feel like you’re not gonna catch up to watch the rest of the show but here it is.

Once I watch season 15 I will finally be able to watch in real time with everyone and I’m so excited for that because then I can stop avoiding spoilers! It’ll be so good.

Okay, I’m going now, I’m excited for the new season and what it holds and you bet there will be one more of these blog posts coming your way very soon!

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Here we are another recap for Grey’s. You know, it’s going to be so weird when I’m not doing these anymore. I have predicted that I will be caught up by the end of season 15 and then after that, I’ll be watching the show in real time with everyone else.

It’s been a wild ride we’ve been having through the seasons, while also trying to balance my final semester of uni work… but I think it’s been good. I have actually really enjoyed having a long TV show to binge watch over this time, as I think having to find some new entertainment after one or two seasons would have stressed me out.

I’m feeling kind of reflective and sentimental in some ways because I just finished my dissertation and that was a journey…but anyway enough with that – that will come in a later blog post lol

Time to share my thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy season 13:

  • Alex beat up DeLuca and now he’s pressing felony charges – eek. So much fall out and nothing good.
  • Maggie finally asked Riggs out but Meredith told him to say no. Definitely gonna be ugly when Maggie finds out about those two. Messy messy.
  • The clinic still exists! And Alex is working in it. I wonder how this DeLuca and Alex thing resolves itself.
  • Okay but for real Meredith just tell Maggie about Riggs
  • April and Jackson actually being good parents and cute is exactly what I need
  • Amelia and Hunt are working on the marriage and getting to know each other that is cute
  • When are going to find out what happens with Alex and DeLuca because they are dragging it out – I mean it’s only been 4 episodes but I’m impatient
  • Also, I hope DeLuca gets some friends, I feel like he doesn’t have any – I guess Jo is there but I don’t know, I don’t want him to be alone, though sometimes I forget he lives with Arizona until they bring it up lol
  • So Amelia and Hunt were okay and now they aren’t – she definitely has to tell him about the baby situation – he would totally understand
  • Oh my God Murphy is back! I definitely did not see that one coming, I mean normally when people leave they don’t return. I totally forgot she existed, to be honest…
  • Side note: I looked up that Callie just doesn’t come back – she just straight up left for New York and that was it – kind of sad because I’ll miss her… Why is it when someone leaves the show it seems so abrupt? Like it wasn’t even like she got a real send off it was just Arizona being like “go to New York” and she did. The end… Not a fan – I shouldn’t have to Google if someone has left the show for good, it should be clear from the show’s context. That being said I’m super glad they didn’t just kill her off – had enough death thanks
  • Lol April on Tinder – of all the people I didn’t think she was gonna go there
  • So Amelia told Hunt the truth and that didn’t go well but when you just yell at him “I don’t wanna have a baby” that’s probably why…
  • So this woman is just gonna come in and take Richard’s job? Not cute.
  • Jo finally told Alex the truth – good. I knew he would understand. He’s a good guy. But she should have told him sooner and saved all this fall out.
  • Lol this woman makes it so easy to hate her – love that everyone is fighting for Webber
  • Also good to know Amelia just ran away – like she does – I need her to be good with Owen and for them to be cute because they never really have good moments, I mean they do it just doesn’t ever last
  • Minnick is not going down without a fight – which means I actually had to look up her name so I could stop referring to her as “this woman” gross
  • I can’t believe Bailey made April interim chief of General Surgery and took out Meredith – that’s how you know they came to play
  • Also, DeLuca is a really decent guy – like he’s attractive and charming and he just dropped the charges on Alex like damn boy – you a fave
  • So everyone be fighting then and Minnick just on her merry way doing things – ugh she’s annoying
  • Do I like Minnick with Arizona? Eh… we see how it goes but I knew Richard was going to find out eventually, Arizona was trying too hard to keep it secret
  • And Meredith needs to decide if she wants to get with Riggs or not – I’ve kind of accepted Meredith is gonna move on but they’ll never have that epic love like McDreamy and Meredith
  • This Maggie’s mum cancer thing is not gonna end well I can already sense it
  • Yeah see, she dies :/ why do people’s parents come on the show only to get ill and die? Like was it so hard for Maggie’s mum to be okay? She already lost her birth mum – not fun
  • I also think about how it must be when you’re ill and you’re around all these doctors like aren’t you lucky to be having dinner with a bunch of them and something goes wrong?
  • Also what was with that episode with Jackson and his dad? Is that a filler or is there something more gonna happen with them?
  • So Meredith and Riggs still not happening? I feel like he’s being super patient but is it really gonna pan out?
  • And can Amelia please decide what’s going on with her and Owen it’s kind of annoying
  • Of course Meredith is on another dangerous flight – this is not cute after what happened the last time guys
  • Finally Meredith and Riggs! Woo
  • But also she can’t get rid of that tumour that her and Derek drew – it’s like throwing away the post-it you just don’t do it
  • I also guess we aren’t getting more out of Jo and Alex this season? It’s kind of been lulled down lately…
  • Just as I say that Alex goes looking for Jo’s husband WHO IS WILLIAM SHUSTER FROM GLEE HAHAHAHAHA wow
  • Sad nothing actually happened between him and Alex though – I mean I’m also glad because at least Alex isn’t going to jail or anything but still…now what happens between Alex and Jo?
  • WTF rapist in the hospital with Edwards – she sets him on FIRE AND THERE WAS AN EXPLOSION
  • Damn Edwards is such a badass – you know what I ain’t even mad she leaving I think I’m glad they didn’t just kill her off which would have been the easy thing to do but she survived and is a queen
  • Also Megan’s alive?! Okay I spoiled this for myself so I always knew this was going to happen lol but still so random
  • This means Riggs and Meredith can’t be together – did the show know that everyone was gonna hate Meredith with someone who isn’t Derek and so decided this wasn’t the time lol, either way, I am okay with it
  • Poor Owen though, his life is just turned upside down lately – like they literally went this whole season with Amelia and Owen being married but like not really married because Amelia left the house ASAP lol and now his sister is actually alive?! So crazy…
  • And Minnick got fired yassss – I mean okay I am sad about her and Arizona a little but eh time to move on

So to summerise, this season was all about Minnick taking over but not really, Meredith being wishy-washy about being with Riggs but it doesn’t even matter because Owen’s sister is alive so that’s over and I guess some other things that kind of faded into the background after a while aka the whole Alex thing.

I gotta say this season was kind of meh, I feel like they knew it because they decided to throw in an exciting season finale lol. But I guess that’s okay – not every season can be a winner. I guess I was just expecting more from it, it did have promise but then was kind of more less the same things over and over again.

Also yeah Murphy came back for like 3 episodes and now she’s just disappeared again? Why bring her back if you are going to get rid of her lol. Random.

But yes, the season wasn’t the best, but we are in the home stretch. Just two more seasons left! I’m excited but also I will be sad when it’s over because I don’t know what I’ll be doing with my life then…And I mean that literally because I predict I’ll be caught up in a few weeks and I’ll have finished uni then and I will just have all the free time but no more Grey’s to watch…

I guess I have to figure something out, but for right now I shall treasure the time I have with Grey’s, see you after the next season.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

The first season without Derek…

I guess it was okay. I mean I think the main focus kept being on the same people and I was kind of…over it?

Sounds weird because I haven’t ever been bored of a season of Grey’s but this one kept feeling like it was interesting enough to keep watching but it was definitely missing something.

Probably just that we lost two main characters in the last two seasons and the show hasn’t yet fully recovered.

But here are my thoughts on season 12:

  • Bailey as Chief! The first day wasn’t great but she’ll get there
  • Love that Amelia, Maggie and Meredith are living together
  • Alex and Jo made their crappy place a nice home real quick
  • April is determined to fight for Jackson but I don’t know if that’s gonna go well
  • Yeah so Jackson moved out lol they don’t last… (might have seen that when I was Googling to see if April was leaving and never coming back because of the army)
  • Wonder how long Jackson can crash on Bailey’s sofa before she’s like “Nah time to go bro”
  • Maggie sleeping with that intern lol yikes
  • That was the most awkward dinner party of all time – but I do love when all the doctors get together outside of work and hang out
  • Like you can’t have a party and invite the woman that killed Derek ya know :/ I felt bad about the whole situation Callie didn’t know, no one else knew…
  • At least Meredith is trying to rise above, I don’t know if I could so yay for Meredith being the bigger person
  • I guess she’s becoming a member of the cast
  • Side note: I don’t like the new interns as always lol
  • Maggie and her guy though I hope they work out – I totally forgot she even went out with that guy from radiology because it was mentioned twice and then never brought up again, nevermind the fact they dated for six months?
  • Also love that Amelia has a “jumbo box of condoms” in the bathroom and wants to share – safe sex for everyone
  • This new guy is causing PTSD for Owen so I already hate him
  • Love that Meredith is being Owen’s person – “do we hate him” “yes we hate him” “okay” – that’s the kind of person you need in life lol
  • April and Jackson aren’t talking but they had sex – yep everyone does it, they’re too awkward to talk to each other but I can’t have this iffy status with them because it’s annoying
  • Okay so Jackson wants to talk and April doesn’t – they yelling and…what? I hate that this one episode had so many cliff hangers
  • So Owen had a sister?! What is up with that I know that the new cardio guy is related to him but is it a trans situation? Is it a this new guy is his brother and caused his sister to die? Like there’s a lot going on…
  • And because Owen doesn’t want to talk about it and Amelia is being shut out – but Meredith is there for Owen, Amelia is going off the deep end and drinking… super cool
  • On top of that Arizona is trying to find someone new to date and I think it’s cute she’s trying and also cute that she is using Richard as a wingman lol
  • Of course Meredith is almost beaten to death. As if she hasn’t been through enough in her life
  • At least all the doctors are there for her love them
  • Amelia getting sober again yay!
  • So Hunt had a sister and she was with Riggs and his sister died so he blames the guy okay…
  • It was kind of amazing seeing them work together though.
  • I hope Amelia and Hunt figure out there stuff. Just like I hope Jo and Alex cut the shit and get together again
  • Lol Richard finding out about Maggie and DeLuca we knew that was gonna be a fun time – I like that he was kind of cool about it in the end though
  • They really love all these flashback episodes don’t they. I feel like we’ve been having too many lately. Just tell me what happened with Jackson and April in order – though from How to get away with murder I know Shonda Rhimes loves a good rewind
  • Wow this Jackson and April episode takes it way back to the beginning and I can’t tell if they had planned this all along so filmed those scenes years ago or they filmed them new because Jackson and April’s hair changes over the years lol
  • Oh my God April is pregnant again but she just signed divorce papers. Eek. Jackson needs to know sweetie…
  • I love that they are including Richard more by having him be friends with Arizona – it was an unlikely friendship but I want him included in the fam because he’s always around but I always felt he was a little on the outside
  • Arizona just went ahead and told Jackson about April dang it this ain’t gonna be good
  • I don’t want Meredith to be a sad widow forever but like I am not ready for her to be dating someone else, like for me Derek just died and I’m still not okay with it
  • Also yeah I’ve been wondering for a while why Meredith and other people have been treating Jo like crap? Like she’s genuinely nice, sure that thing with her and Edwards was awkward and in that moment Jo seemed real shitty but like she has good intentions
  • I knew that Jackson’s mum would have some ulterior motive for talking to April about the baby – this is going to be a war
  • So DeLuca and Maggie are over because DeLuca doesn’t know how to communicate, Owen and Amelia are over because he was drunk and she’s sober so that’s not a good space for her and Meredith and that guy just can’t be right now because she’s not ready – that’s totally fine I’m all here for the Grey sisters and their power, I just love when they are in scenes together, also Alex is cool too
  • I kind of like that Penny is growing a spine she really needs to stand up to everyone else
  • Ben is so out of control – cutting into that psych patient and giving that woman a C section in the hallway – he’s also like really scary when he was yelling at Bailey I was like “NO DON’T HURT HER” like this ain’t good someone stop him
  • Oh and April with the restraining order? I did not take her for that type of girl but I guess she wants to protect the baby…so messy though
  • Okay Jackson and April are being civil to each other again, they can put the lawyers down – I knew they would work it out
  • Meanwhile Callie wants to jet off with Penny to New York and take Sophia without asking Arizona. Now they are lawyering up – it’s gonna be a big custody battle
  • I am also pissed at Ben for being suspended but then deciding to get his old job back like wtf I don’t think he should be allowed in the hospital either after the whole situation
  • I also can’t tell how we feeling about Riggs anymore do we love him, do we hate him? He seems okay apart from cheating on Owen’s sister…
  • Arizona won the custody battle, damn. Now Callie and Penny have broken up and Penny is going to New York alone because Callie can’t leave her daughter. I wish they had worked something civil out. I mean I don’t think Callie should have taken Sofia to New York but at the same time I think that they should have been able to share custody – especially when Callie was only going to be away for a year?
  • Meredith just started kissing Riggs and I am so not okay with that what the heck
  • Amelia just asked Hunt to marry her lol okay. And Jo said no to Alex 😦 I know Jo and Alex work it out but like if Jo could form words to explain herself to Alex that would be great
  • Jo is already married? Didn’t see that one coming
  • YES BEN YOU SAVE APRIL’S LIFE – oh my gosh I was worried but then I was like no he can redeem himself and he did!
  • Amelia and Hunt made it down the aisle – finally. I hope they actually stick to it because they’re relationship is honestly non-existant because they never talked and just ended up having sex every so often yet they getting married so yay?
  • Arizona decides to let Callie take Sofia to New York omg so they all happy
  • And finally…Maggie likes Riggs but Meredith slept with him so what now?

Yeah so Meredith moving on after Derek is not something I am a huge fan of. I mean I know it was going to happen eventually but like McDreamy was her big love, so to have her get with someone else so soon is just not my thing. I know it’s boring for the show if she didn’t have new love interests but doesn’t everyone else have enough drama to have Meredith without some for a while?

Aside from that I’m not sure what is to be expected next. I’m sure Owen and Amelia won’t be in wedded bliss forever, and people are gonna find out about Meredith and Riggs for sure…

I’m not even sure who’s the next to go but I guess we see, only a few more seasons to go and I’ll officially be all caught up! It’s been a wild ride but I’m glad I’m in the home stretch 😛

Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Okay so I guess my primitive Internet search to find out when Derek leaves was wrong. I thought we had a couple more seasons with him but we don’t. Not anymore… he’s gone. And I cried for like three episodes straight after that because it was just the worst.

Aside from that this season has been…I don’t even know to be honest, I felt like it was okay, I kept wanting the best for Derek and Meredith because they were fighting and I didn’t need that. We had Maggie on the scene as another long lost sister of Meredith’s and then we also had a bunch of other things that I don’t quite recall.

Honestly, after the whole Derek situation it’s all I can think about but luckily, I’ve been blogging as I’ve been watching so here are all my thoughts on season 11 of Grey’s as a whole:

  • Don’t know how to feel about Meredith’s new sister – I wonder when she’s gonna tell Meredith anyway because they got off on the wrong foot and were fighting the first time they met lol
  • Also Richard needs to be like “I’m your dad tho” because she’s gonna find out eventually
  • Can they just have Bailey and Karev on the board? Then there would be no fighting
  • Is Arizona actually doing a fellowship? I honestly just wanna know if her and Callie are gonna have a baby or not the back and forth is getting annoying
  • Okay they aren’t having a baby?
  • Richard finally tells the girl the truth and she doesn’t even give him a chance to explain – nice
  • Meredith is so not about having another sister and her and Alex’s friendship is kind of cute lol
  • Alex didn’t get his seat on the board? Man I’d be pissed, especially because Cristina did choose him :/
  • So Derek is mad at everyone for his choice and it ain’t cute – though not surprised he felt like he didn’t have a choice but he did – even if it wasn’t the choice he wanted he made it
  • Trust Derek to be the one to tell Meredith to embrace her family – we stan a husband who wants the best for his wife
  • Now we just need Richard and Maggie to talk and make things right
  • Callie and Arizona finally ending it. I’m sad about it for sure but I think it was the right thing. It was downhill for so long and so I think it was their time – though honestly their time should’ve been when Arizona cheated but that’s just me
  • Callie and Meredith as friends is fun. Remember when Callie hated her for sleeping with George lol they’ve come so far!
  • So Arizona’s mentor has a brain tumor…great…
  • Everyone finding out about Derek’s sister’s drug addiction – yikes though how did everyone not know before?
  • Derek has hit rock bottom 😦 poor guy honestly I’m on edge about anything that happens to him because we don’t have a lot of time left with him
  • It’s cute that Meredith brought Maggie around to the house with everyone. I love the O.G Grey house
  • Jo being jealous of Alex and Meredith is hilarious
  • Are Derek and Meredith really calling it quits because my heart can’t take that – YOU ONLY HAVE SO MUCH TIME LEFT TOGETHER PLEASE MCDREAMY COME BACK
  • There’s something wrong with April and Jackson’s baby 😦 NOOO why can’t they just have cute babies and they be the one couple where things are going right?
  • I think it’s cute that Arizona wants to save Herman – too bad she doesn’t wanna be helped
  • Oh she changed her mind – I hope she gets saved – no one likes when the build-up is big and then someone dies :/
  • Okay Meredith and Derek are making it work – of course they are, they have the post-it – they are cute and amazing and it’s gonna be fine
  • Also Meredith and Cristina used to pause during sex to text each other back? Lol that’s actually the kind of friend I need in life
  • When Meredith, Maggie, Amelia and Miranda are all bonding in the 3D printer room – I liked that scene a lot. So much female power in this show and I love it.
  • Cue me crying when Owen is standing in the vent room by himself thinking about Cristina. I miss her too Owen 😥
  • April and Jackson said goodbye to their baby 😦 I wonder what will be next for them
  • Maggie volunteering to look after Meredith’s kids was pretty cute
  • So Meredith didn’t go to see Derek and she just had some alone time and I think that’s fair – I mean you gotta have alone time with no kids or work
  • Arizona and Herman are becoming friends and that’s cute
  • Is Amelia really flirting with Hunt? Is this gonna be a thing?
  • After hyping up this brain surgery they better save Nicole’s life because if she dies I just can’t take it
  • Nicole is alive! But she’s blind 😦 so close. But it was a great episode and the important thing is that she’s alive and Amelia kicked ass in that surgery. Derek who?
  • Derek better not be cheating on Meredith because I swear
  • Yes Amelia and Owen are totally being a thing – I just want someone good for him, Cristina and him have been through a lot
  • Ben better except his trans sister – sure it’s something no one expected but he better be a good brother
  • I think it’s cute that Jackson is trying to revive the Plastics Posse. Mark would have wanted it that way
  • Derek is back! I mean I’m proud he didn’t sleep with that girl but he definitely should have stopped that kiss
  • So Hunt and Amelia are on the outs, that didn’t last long.
  • DEREK NOOOO
  • OH MY GOD
  • I THOUGHT WE HAD AT LEAST A COUPLE MORE SEASONS WHY
  • I cried like a baby
  • My heart
  • I can’t believe them. This was the worst way and too soon after Cristina I can’t be okay with this.
  • Did you think that not having Derek around a lot this season and having Amelia come in was REALLY gonna prepare us for THIS?!
  • NO
  • Gosh
  • Then there was the whole time-lapse thing of Meredith disappearing to have her third baby, I wish Derek had been around for that they didn’t give them enough time 😥
  • And April and Owen went off to the army for their trauma training and Jackson was left alone…
  • And Amelia was trying to hold it together but it wasn’t really working but Owen comes back and saves her from taking drugs again that was a whole thing and now they don’t even look at one another :/
  • Alex being the hero we never knew we needed calling after Meredith and trying to hold down the fort – what a cutie even hosting Christmas at his house
  • OH AND ALSO – why couldn’t they have gotten Cristina to come back for one episode to be there for Meredith in her time of need. Of all the reasons for a character to come back, this would be the time?! I wish they had gotten her back just for one episode.
  • Meredith better not sell that house, Derek built it for her and she should live in it 😦
  • Richard and Catherine finally made it down the aisle! Super cute
  • So April and Jackson are breaking up? Honestly I’m really annoyed about this because they barely got a chance to be together and also I really did want them to be cute and have babies and everything :/
  • Jo and Alex moving out into their own place? Looks a lot like the place Cristina and Owen once moved into but Cristina was able to fix up in no time at all lol

So another season down…honestly not sure how to cope now Derek is gone. Like how do we just move on from this? He was Meredith’s big love and they were supposed to be that couple that no one else could compare to because they are the best. But now…now Meredith is a widow with three kids, thinking about selling the house and trying to move on from things…

It’s just not good. But I have to keep watching. I can’t just get to now and quit. A lot of characters have left the show and I knew from the beginning that only Meredith and Alex really stick through it for the long haul but still…I’ve become attached to everyone so anyone leaving is just devastating now…

But anyway, I guess we see where we go from here. I’m not aware of anyone else leaving anytime soon so I don’t need to be on high alert for that. That being said I think it makes it a little easier knowing when someone is going to leave, because then you can prepare to some degree. But I think I should really stop spoiling the show for myself and just enjoy it lol

(P.S my housemate is in fact now ahead of me in Grey’s. She finished season 11 when I had just started so if she spoils it for me I’ll be so mad)

Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Hi.

So this is the season where Cristina is leaving. And you know me, every time something came up with Cristina I was like – is this where it happens? And then you know I knew Burke was gonna come back for it and I was like “well how does he fit into anything?” but overall I think it was fine. I mean, I could have done without seeing him again to be honest but aside from that I’m gonna miss Cristina a whole bunch.

Also, my housemate was on season 9 the last time I spoke to her so I’m not even surprised if she finished season 10 before me.

But here are my thoughts, I feel like my main focus this season was savouring the time with Cristina we had left but there was some other stuff going on too:

  • Cristina and Hunt keep having sex and I expect nothing less from them lol I don’t want them to be broken up
  • Callie running away to Meredith’s – man I’d be the same
  • I know looking back Arizona did deal with Callie having Mark’s baby which is a huge thing to process but like technically Callie and Arizona were broken up when Mark and Callie slept together which is better than Arizona literally cheating when they were married :/ complicated relationship
  • Omg Brooks is gone :/ I did kind of see it coming, I had no attachments to her so can’t be too sad
  • Too bad no one has anything nice to say to her
  • Also everyone freaking out about Richard was giving me anxiety but I knew he was gonna be okay, but also I would definitely give someone a head’s up that I had chosen them to make medical decisions about me
  • Look at the interns sticking up for one another. Cute.
  • April actually giving up on getting with Jackson and agreeing to marry Paramedic guy. I don’t know how this will go especially because they haven’t even been dating long lol
  • Wait, Richard didn’t wanna be saved…oh now this is a turn. Or is he just angry about the tube feeding? Either way, Meredith has grown a lot since season one she has feelings and cares for other people, THAT INCLUDES YOU RICHARD. Gosh. She was not just gonna let you die
  • Jackson hi-fiving April instead of hugging her was such a slap in the face
  • Callie standing up to Arizona and being like “No I ain’t going to therapy” is good. I don’t want her to go back there right away
  • Also Meredith and Derek be struggling with this baby and it’s showing lol they thought it’d be fine because they adopted a toddler but they really didn’t have to deal with a baby – I love them looking so domestic though
  • Okay Meredith and Derek in competition and being cute and stuff at the gala honestly I love them so much
  • Wow Arizona and April getting drunk in a supply closet is not something I could have imagined ever haha “Can I try on your leg?” – I mean I wish she had
  • Alex’s dad situation – I knew there was a reason he was so distracted…
  • It’s nice to see everyone dress up fancy every once in a while
  • Also that girl hitting on Hunt was cute and all but like my heart definitely broke for Cristina
  • I also love Cristina flirting to get that dolla and laughing in the guy’s face like yasss werk girl
  • “I have rebounded to the McDreamies” – definitely not a bad way to be Callie
  • So Meredith’s priorities have changed and she ain’t a happy bunny – is this where the marriage problems start?
  • It’s not because the McDreamies are just too perfect and of course Derek would step up to allow Meredith to shine because he’s just a babe
  • Jackson’s mum is always a fave when she comes around, judging Jackson’s girlfriend lol
  • I know Jo was trying real hard with Alex’s dad and that’s cute but seems like a waste
  • Callie dancing in her underwear is a mood and I love it
  • Murphy thinking she’s in love with Arizona is hilarious like girl you ain’t nothing special soz
  • Oh the Alex dad situation was a waste :/ I feel bad for him though because ALEX IS ALWAYS GETTING HURT – I remember when I was like stop sleeping on George – now it’s time to STOP SLEEPING ON ALEX – he deserves good things
  • So this is how the Cristina thing starts – she called out Meredith and then Meredith called her out and now…the friendship is…at a bump :/
  • Arizona sleeping with Murphy even though she just broke up with Callie? You ain’t even divorced! You should not just be jumping into bed with the next girl you see this isn’t cute
  • Ben just deciding to quit being a surgeon is the worst thing I have ever heard – if you don’t have the drive to stick the residency then what you even doing why go in the first place – of course Bailey is gonna be mad
  • Gah of course Callie wants to give Arizona another chance, but I won’t allow it – she needs to know Arizona been sleeping with an intern
  • I love that they don’t all sleep with each other, it’s just that they bring in new interns to sleep with lol – like Cristina and Alex? Ew and Meredith is with McDreamy so she ain’t sleeping around – April and Jackson already had their thing
  • Alex’s dad is back! Is this a thing? Is Alex gonna get his dad back and it’s gonna be cute? Or are they gonna kill off his dad because the show has already done it to George and Meredith…
  • April’s sisters are annoying af
  • Bailey has OCD? I did not expect that. I mean I guess it was triggered by the whole disease thing and Ben quitting residency and all that but poor girl 😦 It’s weird to see Bailey off her game
  • JACKSON NO YOU DIDN’T WAIT UNTIL APRIL’S WEDDING DAY TO SAY YOU LOVED HER GOD DAMN IT – but also I love he’s finally doing it like I didn’t see her with the paramedic either lol
  • Finally, Ross had a breakdown – it was bound to happen. Do I feel bad? Eh, he needed to be taken down a peg. Do I feel bad about how everyone is treating him since he came back? Yes, a little, I mean he didn’t deserve to be beaten by Alex, it was rough. But he has to learn from his mistakes – they all do
  • So Jackson and April ran away and got married – cute
  • Arizona and Callie are buying their house and making it work
  • Alex’s dad has died…and he also asked Jo to marry him?
  • Cristina and Meredith are working through things which is cute
  • Derek couldn’t say no to the president and Meredith is pissed lol
  • The interns are filing complaints against their superiors because of sexual harassment – we’ve had this before. When George was running around getting everyone to say who they’ve had sex with lol don’t see it lasting
  • Also Ben is back as a resident yay! That was a busy episode
  • See I told you Alex would be pissed all his friends were on the board eventually – I mean sure this is about them all being married and he can’t date his resident but still
  • YOU CAN’T BAN RELATIONSHIPS AT THE HOSPITAL THAT’S WHAT THE WHOLE SHOW IS ABOUT lol
  • Wow I had no idea that Jackson’s mom had so many rules about her grandchildren
  • Also if April and Jackson can’t agree on how they want their kids raised then the marriage is totally screwed
  • As if they could ever get rid of Webber too like he’s staying forever and that’s a fact
  • The episode where they show the what ifs for Cristina and Owen break my heart – I wanted them to work out so badly but it seems no matter what things will not be good between them :/
  • I wonder if Jackson and April really will resolve the kids and faith thing because so far it’s not looking like it will
  • OH MY GOD – so Cristina doesn’t win the Harper Avery because she works at the hospital that the Harper Avery foundation supports – IS THIS REALLY WHY SHE LEAVES ugh not a fan
  • So I’ve known Burke comes back to take Cristina away this whole time but like seeing him again is so weird – I just can’t believe Cristina is actually going to leave :/ this makes me so sad 😦
  • Jackson putting his beliefs aside for April and supporting her raising their child Christian is super cute – they will have a cute baby
  • So Callie and Arizona aren’t going to have another child after all that? Hmmm…
  • Would it really be Grey’s if they didn’t try to get rid of at least one intern per season – bye Murphy, it was nice knowing you
  • AS IF Derek thinks he can move to D.C. not today Satan, not today
  • They had one last dance party and I cried like a baby – CRISTINA 😥
  • Cristina put Alex on the board but Webber already told Bailey that she could be on the board…wow I can see this being a fun battle
  • I think it’s cute that Ross decided to go with Cristina, and another intern bites the dust
  • Meredith has ANOTHER half sister…great :/

And so now that we’ve said goodbye to Cristina Yang, there’s only one big exit left on the show that I know about and it’s McDreamy. Am I ready? No. No I’m not. He’s a babe and I just can’t imagine him being gone and Meredith left with the kids like…ugh my heart.

But I have to think positive because he doesn’t leave for another few seasons so I have to enjoy his presence while it lasts, and stock up on tissues to prepare for his departure.

In the meantime, I hope Callie and Arizona get their surrogate, Alex comes back to the hospital and we figure out what the deal is with another mysterious relative of Meredith’s showing up. I’ll be back with another post soon.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 Thoughts

Another season down!

So my housemate started watching Grey’s about the time I started season 9 and she’s already gotten to season 6. I think this is ridiculous and also I think I need to step up my game otherwise she’s going to catch up with me lol. That being said it’s nice to have someone to talk to about Grey’s.

Anyway, this season had a lot going on. Like I think more than usual. I mean it all started with the aftermath of the crash and just kept evolving from there. A lot happened, all the characters have grown. And as always I had a million and one thoughts on everything lol.

So please enjoy my thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy season 10:

  • Crying from the first episode – great this season is gonna be great
  • I am so annoyed that Sloan is gone – HE HAD GREAT MOMENTS
  • Also can we talk about how we got a WHOLE EPISODE dedicated to Sloan leaving but Lexie died instantly and she got no flashbacks…like hi what? I know Mark has more history with basically all the characters but that was still a bit shady – Lexie was Meredith’s sister
  • Also Arizona is alive! But she had to have her leg amputated :/ did not see that one coming.
  • Derek’s hand 😦 I don’t want this to be another Burke situation – this better be fixed!
  • BOOTY CALL BAILEY – I can’t even deal lol
  • And Meredith is the tough attending, who knew?
  • But more interns who I don’t like at all – gross…
  • Honestly having Mark appear in the episode directly after they killed him off is just mean
  • Cristina better come back I swear to God
  • I am so glad that Meredith and Derek are living in the dream house
  • I’ve never seen Arizona angry before – this is so weird but also I get it – who wants to have their leg cut off
  • I get it April, if I was around Jackson I wouldn’t be able to control myself either – you get it girl
  • Bailey being annoyed at everyone is always a fun time
  • Can we talk about Cristina sleeping with Rex Van De Camp lol I don’t know his doctor name but this is just weird
  • I wonder how Hunt would feel if he knew she was sleeping with someone else :/ are they even actually divorced?
  • Also Cristina being friends with the old guy – love that
  • But also she gotta come back to Seattle Grace please and thanks
  • Okay when I said I wanted Cristina back I didn’t mean kill off her friend come on guys that’s mean
  • Hunt honestly is such a cutie – like he fights for everyone and wants what’s best for them. Sure he cheated, but like overall he’s a pretty good guy – I can’t believe the lawyers wanna go after the hospital for what happened
  • Derek gotta get his hand back I miss him
  • Bailey pushing Arizona is fab – we love when she’s got schemes
  • Alex and Cristina living together? I can’t imagine how this is going to go lol
  • Hunt asking for divorce – ouch – I mean I know he’s doing it so Cristina gets money and everything but even so it’s harsh because Cristina was just going to get back together with him – is there a happy ending in there for either of them?
  • Also Teddy is gone which is kind of sad because I liked her – I don’t know if I mentioned that in my blog post from last season but she was great
  • Meredith is pregnant again! Yay! I hope they have the baby – their family is so cute I can’t get enough of it
  • Bailey’s Christmas wedding – who would have thought? lol
  • Adele! I can’t believe she’s gone – poor Richard… I know he was kind of getting on with Avery’s mom but he totally feels guilty for not visiting his wife 😦 Poor guy
  • I was literally sobbing at Bailey’s wedding just because Richard was having flashbacks
  • Cristina decided to get the divorce from Owen but they still going to be together? I can get behind that
  • Are we really making a big deal about these interns because I don’t think I like them, except the one that has that friendship with Karev I guess
  • I’m glad that Arizona and Callie are powering through – I need them together forever
  • So now Cristina, Meredith, Derek and Arizona are rich…cool
  • Also seems a bit weird that Callie wanted to have a dinner to celebrate I mean, sure they won but like still doesn’t feel great when Hunt was at fault
  • Derek’s hand is getting better yassss
  • Oh no…the hospital can’t go bankrupt…no one can get their money if this is what’s going on…
  • Also side note, I’ve noticed we’ve completely forgotten that the hospital has that free clinic after Izzie donated all that money – unless they did something with it that I don’t recall
  • Efficiency lady really… ew
  • Bailey snapping at Derek about the money wasn’t cute, how were they supposed to know the money was going to come from the hospital?
  • Meredith’s baby is kicking and it’s super cute
  • They are closing the ER and selling 😦 this is gross
  • Everyone sneaking a kid into the trauma center to save his life is nothing come on it’s so not like the time Izzie almost killed her boyfriend to get him a heart – leave them alone
  • OH MY GOSH THEY ALL GIVE THE MONEY TO THE HOSPITAL I SEE IT NOW
  • THAT’S WHY THEY RENAME IT SLOAN GREY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
  • April and the ambulance guy are cute – look at her getting her romance on
  • DEREK’S FACE ON THE LIFT DOORS AHAHAHAHAHA
  • Derek’s face on everything – honestly love that
  • Of course April finds the only other person out there waiting until marriage and doesn’t tell him she had sex with Jackson
  • You know it’s real when Bailey is thinking about walking out
  • SOMEONE TELL OWEN IT’S BREAKING MY HEART SEEING HIS FACE
  • Everything is crumbling and I’m crying because the hospital is going to close but I know Grey and everyone are gonna save it but can it happen like right now
  • Avery’s mom really doing this – “momma just bought you a hospital” UM….
  • This whole half the doctors own the hospital and are on the board of directors thing is kind of weird…like you know Alex is really pissed that he ain’t part of it
  • I hate that Meredith is the one talking about how Derek should off her if she gets sick when I KNOW Derek is the one that leaves 😦
  • Oh no…what did Bailey do :/
  • Okay so it was the gloves, not Bailey…she didn’t know but she still mad about it
  • Owen is gonna adopt that kid isn’t he – he feels connected to her
  • Can April and Jackson be friends again or is that just not gonna be a thing
  • Jo dating that guy Bailey had a thing with ages ago – did not see that one coming – but also just get with Alex already plz
  • ARIZONA CHEATING UM NO. GET OUT. CALLIE DOES NOT DESERVE THIS
  • Meredith had her baby and all is well with her. Sure she almost died but like would it really be meredith if she didn’t almost die?
  • Are Cristina and Owen officially over now? :/ I wish she would’ve been okay with the kid
  • I know Arizona is still pissed about her leg but God damn girl that doesn’t mean you can cheat. Callie has a right to be angry with her.
  • Is April gonna marry that guy or what. I mean you can’t just agree to marry him and then just decide “but Jackson is the one” – the guy arranged a flash mob for you
  • Yasss Jo and Alex make it work
  • I know Richard is gonna be okay but can someone please find him

Another season done and dusted. Honestly this one was a roller coaster from start to finish. Like first we lost mark, then we almost lost the hospital, Bailey got married, and killed patients, Arizona lost her leg and cheated, Meredith had a baby!

I think this has been one of my favourite seasons. So much has happened and it’s been super dramatic like all seasons before but I don’t know. I think I just really enjoyed the storylines this season.

Now on to season 10! I’m excited about also not excited because I know this is the season where Cristina leaves and I’m not ready for that. She’s Meredith’s person and we need her. But I guess we see how it goes, I better stock up on tissues.
