And so it begins. Along with tornadoes, April showers also bring May sweeps and season finales. And after spending a day focusing on my own personal “It’s a twister!” moment, I think we’re due for something a little more lighthearted.
Unfortunately, none of this week’s season finales cooperated. Enjoy.
SPOILER ALERT: Stop here if you have not watched these shows yet. Because I will ruin them for you.
The finale wasn’t too dramatic. After all, we’ve only had a handful of episodes to get to know the characters and the premise. But they did manage to solve a crime, injure a semi-main character and leave us with a cliffhanger. As finales go, not bad.
First, the good stuff. McSteamy acting like a girl = hilarious. Arizona explaining exactly why George enlisting is “awesome” = moving. Bailey breaking down when she tells the Chief why she can’t take the peds fellowship = devastating. Christina cracking a smile and pushing out those three little words = beautiful. Justin Chambers’ acting and character development = fantastic. Derek and Meredith’s non-wedding wedding = perfect.
The bad stuff, though . . . that’s what’s going to stick with me. That ending, with Izzie and George’s lives hanging in the balance – it might be enough to do me in. As in, finally force me to walk away from this show. I didn’t think I could take any more after Denny died. It was just too much sadness on a Thursday night. But I stuck with them. And then Denny came back and, against my good sense, I stuck with this show anyway. And then . . . then! It got good again. But if they lose two main characters to tragedy like this, I’m just not sure my heart will still be in it. Or, maybe what I mean to say is that I’m not sure my heart can handle it.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
How’s your season finale season going?
