RuPaul’s Drag Race UK First Impressions

2018-09-07_1847

Finally RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has landed and I thought I would share with you my first impressions of our queens!

Baga Chipz

The first thing that got me was the accent. Just in general for the show. The accents haha. I’m so used to US drag race so the accents took a while to get used to.

First impression of her, when she walked into the werk room, was that was gonna be the loudmouth of the season.

Her runway was cute. I loved her OOT Queen look. Super campy.

Blu Hydrangea

Representing Belfast, I am obviously rooting for a hometown gal. Plus I’ve seen her perform so I know she can turn a lipsync.

Anyway, speaking of accents – I hate the Northern Irish accent on TV so every time I hear Blu talk I cringe a little inside. But still a fave.

Also, love that she has all the facial expressions so we get all the close-ups of her haha.

Her runway looks were bomb and I am so mad she was not in the top 3, I mean SHE WAS A POUND COIN how can you not love that.

Divina De Campo

That laugh. Girl. Not sure how I feel about that haha.

Let’s call her the Willam of the season – as she’s a TV personality and has been on lots of things. Plus she says she can sing, sew, style a wig and all sorts so let’s see if she can pull it out when the time comes.

Her first runway look was cute, I loved the wig. The second outfit was great too.

Crystal

When she walks in a steals her entrance quote from a meme. Eh.

She’s also not a fan of the royals and ain’t afraid to let people know it. Why do I feel like this isn’t the end of her controversial opinions? I guess we see.

Her first runway outfit was kind of meh, like I did not like the blue dress or the words. Wasn’t a fan. Her second look was cute, though not what I think of when I think of the Queen. But still, a Queen look nonetheless.

Some Ting Wong

She gives me life.

When she walked out in that first runway look it was EVERYTHING. Not to mention her Queen look – the stamp omg it was amazing. I really thought she was going to win the main challenge.

Cheryl Hole

cheryl.PNG

She gives me Courtney Act vibes 100%. She is gorgeous, she is blonde. I love it.

Her first runway look was super cute, loved the fake tan. Her Queen look was cute, but she definitely needed a purse.

Gothy Kendoll

gothy.PNG

Wasn’t sure how to feel about her, I did like the representation of chavs in the entrance look though lol. But it felt like she was trying to hide a bit with the high collar and everything.

Her runway look was so weak. Like her face paint was beautiful but the rest of the outfit was crap. Like this is Drag Race you cannot come out in tiger face paint and a black outfit and the weakest “Rawr” ever lol. Girl bye.

Plus the Queen look – it was terrible. I’m sorry but like when you think of the Queen you do not think of a short dress. It should have at least gone to the floor.

Sadly she didn’t seem to redeem herself in that lipsync either. It was very meh.

I don’t know what else we would have gotten from Gothy and I guess we shall never know, maybe she will do an All Stars episode in the future…

Vinegar Strokes

vinegar

She’s a doll. Very much the mum of the group and I am here for it.

Her first runway outfit was kind of meh I gotta say. But apparently, she couldn’t wear her original choice due to licensing issue lol. Her second look was better but to me looked a bit unfinished or unpolished…

That being said she turned that lipsync and was even pulling wig reveals first episode damn girl. I would have loved if she had done 4 wigs though to go with the song but I suppose ya never know what you’re lipsyncing to until the episode. Still pretty good.

Scaredy Kat

scaredy.PNG

Drag baby. Kind of makes me think of Troye Sivan out of drag lol, I think it’s the voice and the hair maybe.

Now we all know when someone has been doing drag for months that they don’t tend to last long in the competition but I have to say that Scaredy Kat really pulled it out with those runway looks. It was cute.

Also never been to a drag show? Sounds like a lie. Even before drag, if his girlfriend is a drag queen surely he’s been to one.

The Vivienne

viv.PNG

Out of drag kind of makes me think of Adam Lambert lol.

But not sure if I love the fact she purposely has “the” as part of her name.

Her runways were great and I loved when they were all shook at her real nose hahaha. But I didn’t think she would win just because they got her for wearing flats, she definitely needs to wear heels next time or Michelle will be coming for her.

Overall Thoughts

The first thing is the grand prize – I have seen so many memes about this haha. But also I am surprised. This grand prize kind of sucks, like most of the US drag queens have their own YouTube series and they didn’t have to win the competition to get one so it doesn’t seem like the best prize in the world. Plus let’s be real, a YouTube series can be filmed using a smartphone anywhere in the world so it just seems a bit meh.

Not to mention, the first prize for winning a main challenge is a badge? That isn’t even exclusive because they are giving away a similar badge at DragCon UK lol.

The first photo shoot was a bit meh. Though to be honest I never think the photoshoots are the best in the beginning. This one was a bit different because there were two parts but I wasn’t the biggest fan.

The main challenge itself was a good one, I love a good runway so it was good we got two in the first episode. A little sad they didn’t have to make anything this first episode but I suppose we will get to the sewing challenges soon enough.

Still, I am excited for this season of Drag Race, it looks like it will be a good one! Plus I know that because it’s the first season they are probably still figuring out some things bits and pieces so it will only get better from here right?

If you are watching Drag Race UK let me know who you are rooting for this season! Like I said I am obviously rooting for Blu Hydrangea this season but there are a lot of good queens out there. So we see how the season goes!

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!

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 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 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.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 8 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

Another season down. Only six to go and then I’m on season 15 and watching with everyone else. That being said I’m probably gonna be caught up at the end of season 15 which makes me upset because that just means waiting forever for season 16…

But yes, this was a long season of Grey’s and this is probably the longest one of these blog posts I’ve made yet. I did think of slowing down on the bullet points but then that went out the window with the last couple of episodes lol.

So here’s my thoughts – looking back we have come a long way this season, and I can’t even imagine what’s to come next:

  • Meredith got fired. And everyone still hates Alex. This is gonna be a good season.
  • April is not going to be able to control everyone else but it’s cute that she thinks she can.
  • McDreamy plz talk to Meredith again you guys supposed to be the OTP…
  • The Chief stepping down and Hunt stepping up is so weird – like I never thought about who might be Chief next but I don’t think it was gonna be Hunt. The last competition for Chief of Surgery was so much fun…
  • April is finding her feet! Yay!
  • Bailey being sassy to Hunt is everything
  • Love that Cristina and Teddy don’t know how to take out an appendix – y’all as bad as each other
  • Also can Meredith and Derek have their baby back – that was cute – them almost breaking up and not having a baby is not
  • It’s been a few episodes and like where is Lexie? I know she younger than the rest of them but where did she go?
  • Also that episode that focused on the guys instead of Meredith and Cristina was real cute
  • Love that they can’t build a deck
  • Oh my God Lexie appeared! Only to be shipped away by Jackson…alright then
  • Of course Jackson’s mom is a surgeon it runs in the family
  • Bailey’s old man appeared and she dumped the new one. Okay so she getting back with the old one? Plus I also thought she wanted him to wait for her so…it wasn’t clear
  • They talked about George </3 gah I miss him
  • Why are Meredith and Alex always in the accidents? Like Meredith drowning/putting her hand on a bomb…Alex getting shot? What’s up with you guys
  • So Teddy’s husband is gone… RIP :/ but also knew he wasn’t going to be around long because the actor is a major part of Scandal the other Shonda Rhimes TV show…
  • Jackson has finally decided to end it with Lexie because she’s still kind of in love with Mark Sloan lol surprised that they lasted this long
  • Also Lexie’s new fringe is not cute, I didn’t like Meredith’s either. Let’s not make this a trend.
  • Okay having Meredith and Derek keep Zola was the best decision they are the cutest family
  • And everyone moving out of Meredith’s – gonna miss that crazy house lol

 

  • OH MY GOSH they are doing a what if episode – I am so for this here are some thoughts on just that episode:
  • First of all Ellis and Webber can’t even deal
  • Callie as a heart surgeon and not with Arizona can’t even
  • Bailey! SO SHY
  • Cristina and Meredith are not each other’s person omg what is this
  • Derek and Addison together and she pregnant – omg can’t
  • CALLIE IS WITH HUNT HAHAHA WOW – so unexpected
  • MEREDITH IS WITH ALEX AND HE IS A DORK – this is too weird
  • Lexie the druggie with dreadlocks – she looks ridiculous
  • Alex and April doing it on the side hahahahahaha
  • Also Charles is still alive? And they briefly mentioned Izzie and George – I wish they had got them back for one episode…
  • MCDREARY I’M CRYING
  • Okay but like overall that was a really fun ep – ya know imagine if that’s how the show really was – I’d die

 

  • Surprised Teddy hasn’t forgiven Owen for Henry – like she’s chill with Cristina? I imagine they work it out
  • Sloan and Lexie are they gonna get back together or what’s the deal – he’s with that other girl but Lexie just wants to tell him – and girl I want ya to tell him too – you both make an exit this season and I imagine you do it as a couple
  • Are Cristina and Hunt over? I mean at least they trying counseling…
  • Derek accusing everyone being racist just because he didn’t do Zola’s hair is hilarious
  • Sloan trying to get Avery laid is cute lol guess they are real good friends now
  • HUNT CHEATED or damn this is not good and the last thing I expected from him wtf
  • Okay but Sloan as Chief in that suit with the earpiece – I love it
  • Also I see we remember that Callie is a genius when it comes to studying and she helped Meredith so yay!
  • I can also see that Teddy is so not handling this whole Henry thing very well…
  • The boards! They all so close to being doctors – BUT ALSO THEY ALL GONNA LEAVE?!
  • I mean I know for the purposes of the show that probably isn’t gonna last but come on guys :/
  • Also I can totally see why they drop Lexie because she’s younger than all of them so kind of just lifts out
  • APRIL AND JACKSON – I died. Like what’s going on there? I guess not a lot since April failed her boards but like…that could be something I could be behind
  • Cristina and Hunt officially over because Cristina has decided to go elsewhere? I guess she made her choice. But I think besides the cheating Hunt was a keeper.
  • Also can’t believe Meredith and Derek aren’t even gonna get to live in that house – we’ve been waiting for this house 8 seasons and now they gonna leave?!
  • I also need to take some time to feel sorry for Richard after his wife fell in love with that guy at the care home – I mean he was a saint and he didn’t deserve that. Heartbreaking – but him and Jackson’s mom though…I see that
  • Bailey got a proposal from her man! It probably wasn’t the best in the middle of that O.R. but hey I thought it was cute
  • THERE WAS A PLANE CRASH OH MY GOD
  • Even though I knew about the plane crash I was still shocked
  • YOU DIDN’T TELL ME EVERYONE WAS GONNA GO DOWN
  • MEREDITH
  • DEREK
  • CRISTINA
  • MARK
  • LEXIE
  • ARIZONA
  • WHAT THE HECK
  • Of course I cried – like they all stranded out there, Lexie is gone, the rest of them barely holding on…
  • THIS AIN’T RIGHT

And so here we are again at the end of another season of Grey’s Anatomy. You know…you think I would get used to all the traumatizing things that happen by now but apparently not.

This season seemed to be a long one, lots of stuff going on. But maybe it’s because I’ve been busy lately and haven’t been able to watch as much as normal lol. Even as I’m writing this I know I have uni work to be doing but I needed to get my thoughts out there.

I’m so ready to start in on season 9 too. I need to see everyone get rescued and be fine. But I guess that has to wait. The struggles of having responsibilities and other things to do…that being said I should also get back to reading, kind of haven’t been doing that either…

Anyway, I should end this here otherwise I’m gonna ramble forever – I don’t think I’ll ever get the hang of ending blog posts…but I will be back very soon with another Grey’s Anatomy blog post that’s for sure.
