A plane crash...where everyone survives, but the plane is RIPPED apart over a large area, but there's no fire...
Okay, not EVERYONE survived...
So as not to piss anyone off with a "spoiler" for this tired show - what was the dead docs final words? Write to me???
It is too early for her to really die.
Report back and tell us what happened.
Some of us no longer watch the show, but would like to see kmow happens.
This episode is all about the makeup.
Show has jumped the shark. This should have been the last season. This finale is ridiculous.
So... NOBODY is aware the plane went down? NO search? NO notification of a crash?
Are you fucking kidding me?
Who died ? Never watched the show but my sister the nurse loves it.
Lexi, Meredith Gray's little sister.
Three others aren't doing so well.
I thought they'd kill Arizona for sure.
They don't need Lexie anymore. Ellen P signed up for two more seasons and I'm sure they don't plan on the show lasting longer than that. Lexie was only around so there would be a title character if Ellen P ever did leave.
Nothing will ever equal the episode of ER when the helicopter fell off the roof and killed Dr. Romano. This of course was months or a year after another helicopter destroyed the surgeon's arm.
The show jumped the shark when they had that singing episode.
If only there were a way to speak to humans not actually with you!
Grey's Anatomy is still on the air? People still watch it?
R13, wasn't the sad part that nobody missed him when he didn't show up for work?
I wonder if part of Ellen's re-signing was tied to killing off the sister.
I always had the feeling they brought her because it would give them leverage over Pompeo, the Grey in Grey's Anatomy.
Lexie was more interesting and more attractive than Meredith.
And a MUCH better actress.
I did not even recognize Eric Dane or Meredith. Did both of them get so much plastic surgery and Botox the last few years?
This show is ridiculous. Every season finale they have a big accident to kill off cast members. Is that place cursed or something? I don't like shows that randomly kill people for no reason.
Is Arizona going to lose her leg?

The best lines of the night were from Dr. Cristina Yang running around the woods after the crash screaming "WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN?!?" and the listing the litanny of disasters and death scenes, and ending with "If I get out of this, I'm getting as far away from that damn hospital as possible!"
If a plane falls in the forest and nobody hears it, did anyone really die?
I have watched most of this show, but I skipped the finale. It needs to end. They're in ER territory now where it's just tragedy after tragedy.
My show did it every year and people loved it.
R25, don't forget "Where's my shoe?" !!
Meredith HOWLING in tears for five minutes was a master class in bad acting.
Cell phones make it implausible to have stories like this, where a disaster occurs and nobody knows for hours/days.
Even if NOBODY'S cell was working, all their friends etc would notice no calls. People call to announce each bowel movement nowadays
I'm no Meredith fan, but I despise Lexie.
The show is DNR.
We'll see Lexie again next season in the very special "Ghosts of Seattle Grace" episode where we find out Kyle Chandler and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are gay ghost married.
The actress playing Lexie was in a movie with her real-life brother, playing her boyfriend, and they french kissed.
Arizona telling Mark to live and his, "ok," was laughable.
They never showed to help with the surgery at the other hospital AND no one calls or alerts ANYONE??
I enjoy some parts of the show, but this was over the top.
Derek has now been shot AND been in a plane crash.
At the end of the episode, someone calls Owen (?) and tells them the surgeons haven't arrived. I never liked this show but watched it in support of a black woman show creator, since there are so few of them. But now, the show is generic bloody crap. The only time I really liked it was when the homophobe was on there. I can't remember his name. The show was/is riddled with cliches and bad acting so I really hope they take it off life support soon.
Isaiah Washington, R37.
This show is as bad as any awful soap opera. I watched it a few times to see what the fuss was about and came away thinking anybody who likes this damn show must be a retard. EVERYBODY on it seems to be absolutely crazy, fucked up, a mess. Not one likeable character in the whole bunch. I especially loathed the fugly, overwrought nutcase Christina and the fugly, short, dumpy, abrasive Bailey. Both of them are crazy and ugly and both have them have hot guys lusting after them. This show sucks! It needs to die and SOON.
Eric Dane looks much different but not sure it was botox - he was in rehab for a long time.
Eric Dane looks like he is on meth, hardcore. Very sad.
R41 thought the same thing
Is Eric Dane still getting high and having 3-ways with his wife and other chicks?
nothing will ever top all the women who slept with George and would later sob: "That was the BIGGEST mistake of my LIFE! You are my BEST FRIEND!!"
They never say that after a romp with McCreamy now, do they?
Eric Dane dyed the gray out of his hair around the time that he assumed temporary duties as Chief. I guess he's sticking with that look now.
It's a shame that Kim Raver is off the show. There are definitely other characters that they could cut instead of her.
I thought Kim Raver made the big speech that she would never leave.
[quote]Eric Dane dyed the gray out of his hair around the time that he assumed temporary duties as Chief. I guess he's sticking with that look now.
It's not just his hair. His whole facial structure is different. I seriously thought it was a new cast member.
R46, EW magazine has a brief story about some things Shonda Rhimes said and/or tweeted. It's not very clear as to whether Raver said she wanted off the show, or if the producers sat her down and told her they weren't going to renew new contract.
It would be interesting to hear Kim's side of the story now. Maybe she has another job lined up and wanted out.
So Christina stays to become head of cardio thoracic. If they didn't kill Arizona, how do they keep Alex as a character? And why won't Meredith & Derek move to Boston?
Supposedly either Chyler Leigh or or Kim Raver fucked a higher profile actor on the show, assumed to be Dempsey, once and for the last two years he's been spreading vicious lies about her to anyone who will listen, saying he'd stop only if she fucked him again, and the producers refused to do anything about it but suggested that she leave as a solution to the tension.
Interesting, R50. I saw the same BI, and alt.gossip.celebrities said it was about Grace Park on Hawaii-5-0. It fits Grey's better, IMO.
We start next season finding that both Arizona and Mark didn't make it through the night. Karev and Jackson take there places. Christine stays to take Teddy's place. Derek can no longer operate so he has no reason to go to Boston. He (along with April) spends most of the season working through depression until finally getting a job back at Seattle Grace. Owen steps down and Bailey becomes Chief. Meredith replaces Bailey.
Isn't that the oldest group of residents the world has ever seen? Even if it hadn't taken them eight years for a three or four year program?
"their", not "there"
Yeah, r53, isn't the actress who plays Meredith pushing 50?
This show is obviously popular with fraus because the plain, dumpy, obnoxious female character always gets a much hotter-looking male doctor as their love interest, i.e. Meredith, Bailey.
In what universe is caustic dumptruck Bailey going to get that hot new younger fiancee?
True, R56. It's an interesting reversal of the Adam Sandler-ish ugly guy ends up with gorgeous woman norm.
I heard that the season opener will include a Moldavian massacre in the OR! Honest!
Bengali in Platforms
R50 Gasp! I'd never heard that one before.
Dempsey was/is supposedly happily married.
Did Sandra Oh get her name from her ONLY acting expression?
What about the chick that failed her boards, had all offeres recinded, and even Seattle Grace doesn't want her? Is she off the show too?
And what about Owen's "best friend" that he fired? Is she off the show too?
Is this a MAJOR pruning?
Honestly, I don't see how the show survives after this...
R61 - The best friend - Teddy - is off the show. She was written out along with Meredith's sister Lexie who was killed off.
The actress who plays April (who failed her boards) is pregnant, or was until recently…I think she'll be back but after a maternity leave. Same with the actress who plays Arizona, she's pregnant too.
Jesus, is this show still on?
I gave up somewhere around season three or four.
Why would Kim Raver leave the show now? Not that I really care. I'm just curious. I don't think she was having an affair with a cast member because she's married with two boys. Kim keeps her private life private.
Oh dear God - please just kill them all.
Shonda On the Neighbors Rhymes
[quote]I don't think she was having an affair with a cast member because she's married with two boys.
You are too stupid to own a keyboard. Please have a caring friend come to wherever you are and conduct a mercy removal STAT.
Step away from the computer r66.
Wasn't there some stupid show where a plane crashed and Jane Wyman walked away without a bruise or hair out of place..not even her lipstick wasn't smeared but the plane was demolished and everyone else died a horrible death? What was that show?
Falcon Crest, r68.
I don't watch but my partner likes it. The most unattractive cast on TV. Yecch!
ABC told Shonda to make some cuts. Eric Dane had gotten cut because he became a liability. Kim Raver didn't want to leave but Shonda told her that she might develop a show for her in the future. Oh well. It doesn't matter anyway because Grey's Anatomy doesn't have much longer.
You Queens here never like anything. So it's not a surprise that you are bitching so hard about a damn TV show.
Grey's Anatomy had big ratings on Thursday. I'm sure they're going to green light at least 2 more seasons.
Shonda seems to enjoy killing off her characters.
Eric Dane looks like he has lost over 20 pounds (and not the way Arizona did).
It is clear why he was fired: drugs.
Fraus watch this trash. Blame them.
That actress who plays Meredith has always had such a strange-looking face. To me, it's always looked like it's...melting.
What kind of a doctor would stab a severely wounded (paralyzed, actually) accident victim in the the thigh with a pen, to order to drive home that's he's paralyzed? The insane, cuckoo, nutjob, screeching, flailing, homely Sandra Oh character, that's who. She'll also very, VERY concerned about finding her lost shoe. It's of vast importance to her.
Yes, the only fans of this show must be middle-aged women who enjoy seeing ugly women (Meredith, Bailey, Christina) getting it on with hot guys; it must give them hope that someday a hot guy will fall in love with them, too.
I will be glad when the show goes off the air.
Me too, r78.
Mad TV did a very funny parody of this show. It shows female doctors screaming at the men they're sleeping with while the entire hospital staff listens in. A short, fat, black female doctor with a loud voice is always screaming "y'all do your rounds! NOW! NOOOOOWWW!" A patient with no neck is waiting for her neck to be re-attached; her body is in bed changing the channel on tv and her head is on a tray nearby. And the Christina Yang characer is played by a guy who is the spitting image of Sandra Oh.
One of the frauiest frau shows that ever fraued on frauTV.
Is this show still a hit? I quit watching it about 4 seasons ago.
It' still a Top 10 or Top 15 show. I still watch it because I have a fundamental inability to stop watching a show once I take it on, despite the fact I loathe it.
No, it's no longer Top 10 or 15. It's fallen, a lot. I think twenties or thirties is the highest it's been.
I kinda hope it gets cancelled. I used to like it but now it's just repetitive. And Shonda Rhimes has Scandal now, so ABC would be wise to let Grey's go to sleep and put Scandal on at 9/8.
[quote] I think twenties or thirties is the highest it's been.
This season, since the premiere.
