Grey's Anatomy premiere review

-This episode was all about change. Derek stepped down as chief, Callie and Arizona agreed to move in together, Bailey dumped her boyfriend, Teddy has moved onto a new doc, and Cristina got married. The only person who never seems to change on this show is Alex Karev.

-We thought there was something off about the Hunt/Cristina marriage. When we first heard about it, we thought it made sense. It’s the right guy now, in Cristina’s mind. She’s a different person. Why not get married? But then we got a flash to the proposal which happened and got accepted because….Cristina didn’t want to be alone? Because she was still freaked out over the shooting? That’s not ideal.

-Also not ideal: asking Derek to be your best man when you aren’t really friends. What, did he choke all his real friends? (ok, ok, that was the last choking joke on this blog, we promise) And just a note to you ladies, it’s ok on TV, because we know Hunt is a good guy and living far from his home town, but if a guy doesn’t have one good friend of at least a year to be best man at the wedding, that’s a bad sign. It’s a sign that no one wants to stick around this guy. It’s possible that no one wanted to be Hunt's best man because he went blonde. We do not approve. This show has no gingers now. It was bad enough they didn’t let the guy use his natural Scottish accent. We love a Scottish accent….

-We did grin during the proposal though, but only because Hunt was being so sweet, reassuring Cristina that he wasn’t going anywhere. He is oblivious to the implications of Cristina’s freak out. Not as cute as the “I want to be around in 40 years” line, but still nice. The wedding was nice and drama-free too. We have mixed feelings and doubts about this whole marriage, but we don't hate the couple. Was it just the wrong time to jump in?

-Bailey’s baby is a little kid now, and he’s so cute!

-We have a new shrink, Parker, who is dating Teddy. We think he’s pretty hot. Man candy is 90% of the reason we still watch this show.

-We like the new bad boy Derek, but we know he is going to have a big crash after this adrenaline rush fueled by guilt. Also, it must be nice to never be charged for reckless endangerment, just because you do your job. Meredith was being no fun ruining Derek’s buzz. Let a man be crazy. It’s better than hearing him whine.

-Question for Cristina: How is wearing white at your wedding racist? Love you in the red dress though.

-We don’t think the actress who plays Lexie (Chyler Leigh) pulled off crazy.

-When is Alex going to grow up? We loved Lexie’s burn to Alex: “You’re the opposite of bad ass. Whatever that’s worth.”

-April has a redeeming moment when she tells her fellow doctors that, at the cafeteria, someone called her Dr. Reid and said, “I thought you died.” Nice.

-Meredith confronting the shrink for dating Teddy was funny. “That was creepy and inappropriate…I’m not interested in learning how love blooms over day-old hot dogs.” We also loved Meredith confronting Cristina for reading a wedding magazine about flowers rather than wanting to watch a surgery.

-What is up with Pathetic Cristina, who got married mostly to “feel/be normal”? We fear for this marriage already. Let’s face it, Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t have a great track record with marriage. It’s essential on TV and in life that you get married for the right reasons. Maybe this relationship ISN’T a forever relationship like we thought, based on the last two seasons of drama.

-We only recently realized that Hunt was in the movie Trainspotting. How slow are we? We’ve been watching that movie and this show for years.

-And what is up with Pathetic Bailey? We are ready for her to be awesome again, please.

-After two years of moaning and groaning about Hunt, judgy Meredith finally accepted the relationship right before the wedding. Way to get on board with your best friend at the last second, Meredith.

-We still love the funny Sloan/Callie dynamic, although it’s such a waste that Sara Ramirez doesn’t sing more on this show. If you don’t know she’s a Broadway alum, YouTube her in the Monty Python musical.

This episode brought the humor and heart, but it left us feeling uneasy about the show, the characters, and the future. But maybe that’s good, because it’s opened up a few new plot possibilities. And the best news is, none of them seem to involve Dead Denny.

Episode grade- B


  1. - I knew the Christina/Owen marriage was too good to be true. Either they'll split up quick or have some serious issues to work through. I'm guessing and hoping for the latter.

    - The new trama counselor dude. I don't like him. I'm tired of all the generically good looking guys. They all kinda look the same. There's a lot more variety with the women on the show.

    - I'm with Meridith, I can't believe he cleared some of those people for surgery, Derek especially. It's going to get ugly.

    - Meridith looked crazy scary with all the eye makeup and monster of a necklace at Christina's wedding. She looks much better in her scrubs.

    - I was so angry at Bailey's boyfriend (what's his name?) for walking away when she told him that she was too busy trying to hold herself together. He should have said "Let me hold you together." And then we could have had awesome Bailey back. I'm tired of Bailey being emotionally constipated.

  2. -We are hoping for the latter with Cristina/Owen too. They just put us through too much with them in seasons five and six for them to be temporary. The show acted like this was it for Cristina.

    -New trauma counselor dude: You're right. This show has a definite type, and they are sticking to it. This guy looks like he has always been here/like the lovechild of Hunt and McSteamy. Fortunately, the Grey's Anatomy type is also this blogger's type. But hey, the pretty boy lovers have Jackson and Karev, right?

    -Yeah, he's the worst shrink of all time

    -True story about Meredith looking weird. She either needed ot pick makeup or necklace. Both was too much.

    -Agree agree agree. They had to find some way to break them up though, because he is going to be in a new show by Shondaland

  3. About the new show with Bailey's boyfriend - really? He as in the actor or he as in the character? Let's hope it's better than Private Practice.

  4. The actor.

    We hate PP too. What a trainwreck.
