Grey's Anatomy season 9, episodes 17-22

The hospital has a new name! We will always think of it as Seattle Grace. Not Seattle Grace Mercy West. We guess the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is better than SGMW anyway. Jackson has been running the hospital since we last stopped in. It was lame of the other doctors to constantly outvote and disrespect him, but he got it all under control eventually.

April and Matthew need to end now. We're glad Alex was right about Jason. With all the drama that goes on in this show, we've never had a main character go through a violent relationship. (Owen and Cristina don't count; he was asleep.) Now it looks like Jo is dealing with that. Is Alex going to try and kill Jason? We hope he does.

Also, it's not Alex's fault that Jo didn't tell Jason about her history before they moved in together. That's a pretty solid assumption to make, if you ask us. We can't even remember the name of the girl Jackson is dating (although one of us is pretty sure it's Stephanie), and we can't be bothered to look her up. That's how much we care about THAT relationship. It's Jackson/April all the way.

While Bailey was once the highlight of the show, we now can't stand anything to do with her. Her unrealistic marriage (as if a woman's looks don't matter to a super-hot medical student!), her meltdown, her accidentally killing three patients...we don't care. She could leave the show at any point and it would be a better show without her. She hasn't been cool since the shooting. We hated the CDC plot line. Boring.

We couldn't really get into the storyline with Owen and the kid, Ethan, because the whole time we were watching, we couldn't shake the certainty that it was all going to end badly. Owen + kids definitely doesn't equal him staying happy with Cristina, for one thing. For another, that storyline had tragedy written all over it.

In recent weeks, we kept thinking, "Is Owen going to try to adopt this kid?" On the one hand, that would be adorable. On the other hand...disaster, right? For now, Owen is choosing Cristina. But we have two episodes in the season, and we're betting that's gonna change.

Owen's pretty anti-social services isn't he? He wouldn't even stomach Ethan spending a night under their watch. Cristina is being super cool about all this, not pushing Owen and giving him an out this week. We feel bad for her. At least the kid is cute and not annoying.

Cases we liked:

  • Cristina's elderly heart patients who held a grudge. Remember? One wouldn't accept a heart from his enemy.
  • April's patient with ALS who wanted to donate his organs. It was so sad when his mom wouldn't let his body go, and she had to be dragged off of him. We cried.
  • The teacher who had to tell her visiting students that she wasn't coming back.
  • Sarah Chalke's stint as a waitress with a gut feeling that something is really wrong with her son. By fighting for him, she ends up saving his life. This was extra cool, because this really happened with Sarah's son, and she wanted to spread awareness of Kawasaki Disease. We love her so much.
  • The Syrian doctors who had to learn complicated procedures with little equipment.
  • The partying sorority girls.

  1. I've really been enjoying Grey's lately. Alex & Jo needs to happen soon. It was awful how they left this last episode. Poor girl. Leave the loser! I also liked the sorority girl storyline, although it was kinda infuriating at the same time. I'm not sure how I feel about Bailey now. I've always liked her ok, but she was never my favorite. She hasn't been given the best storylines lately. I'm looking forward to see how this season ends!

    1. It's been a pretty consistent show this season. We haven't had any awful storylines, but there haven't been riveting ones either. We've been giving it a lot of Bs. Still, it's admirable for a show to be in season nine and still be this good.

  2. Very true about a show this old still being this good. Did either of you ever watch 7th Heaven? It's prob one of my favorite shows. It was on for something crazy like 11 seasons & it got really stupid as the years went on. Don't get me wrong, I still watched it, but the quality tanked. You could tell the writers were running out of good stories & it seemed like the actors didn't want to be there =)

    1. I watched the earlier seasons of that show, but yeah, I dropped out when it went downhill.
