Now that’s the Grey’s Anatomy I remember liking. Humor, drama, soap opera plots and an ensemble cast acting like a true ensemble. Sure, the George and Izzy story is still alive but the word on the street is that it’s not going to end happily.
Derek and Meredith are together but not really together and it’s clear the writing is on the wall – I think Derek will be bailing on this relationship soon enough. I even liked her a little tonight. It’s good to see her acknowledge how screwed up she is even if it’s in the context of blowing off her sister.
The opening scene of Christina trying to trade her gifts definitely made me laugh out loud and I have to admit that McSteamy really does enhance every scene he’s in including this one where he negotiates for the cappuccino maker. Her day gets much worse as Mrs. Burke comes back to give advice to pretty much every character and to take back her son’s stuff. Shock of shocks, Preston’s never coming back.
The case of the week where a meth lab run by a young couple blows up and injures their neighbours, some strangers and their baby son was quite good and proved a great showcase for Alex. It doesn’t, however, work out well for Callie who not only figures out George is cheating on her but screws up most of the day. Bailey gets some great scenes this week between undermining Callie and showing who the real boss is and giving Alex hell for losing it on the father for running a meth lab.
I have to admit, I’m back on the Grey’s train.
