There’s McDreamy vs McSteamy, George (T.R. Knight
) and Izzie (Katherine Heigl
) finally merging to become Gizzie, Burke (Isaiah Washington
) and Cristina’s (Sandra Oh
) seemingly doomed wedding, the interns, the chief, and now, Callie (Sara Ramirez
) wanting a baby in the face of unknown adultery. And let’s not forget Kate Walsh
’s looming defection into “Private Practice.” Altogether, this finale of Grey’s Anatomy
comes packed with enough emotional TNT to blow its previous finales away, completely.
Let’s start with the shows namesake, Meredith. The poor girl died, spent some quality time in a reflective and surreal afterlife, only to be brought back to a dissolving relationship with Derek, and a smack in the mouth from her dad. What will be the kicker for her?
Previews have already revealed that Cristina’s eyebrows get completely waxed off before the wedding, but it looks like her bridesmaids are insistent that she is going through with the wedding. The big question is on Burke. The jury is still out, but runaway groom is a possibility.
George and Izzie are getting down to brass tacks this week. Callie wants a baby, Izzie uses the ‘love’ word and expects a response. It’s not a good time to be George.
Is Derek going to get the chief position? Has he been pushing Meredith away all along because he knows once he has it, his life will be forever devoted to his job? Wouldn’t it be a nice twist if Derek got the job, and then turned it down? Don’t rule it out… that is the word on the street.
Moreover, alas, Dr. Addison is going to no doubt turn in her resignation and head for LA since her spin-off, Private Practice
, was picked up. Very wise of her to wait until after upfronts to announce her engagement to an ABC Studio Executive, otherwise the “Private Practice” buzz might have come with the tagline of “Honey, can I have a spin off?”
