'Grey's Anatomy': Man On The Moon (10x11)

December 12th, 2013 1:01am EST
Grey's Anatomy
Okay. Lots to talk about, as always with this show. Let's dive right in.

April's three sisters are in town for her bachelorette party and impending wedding. They are all condescending and call her "ducky," which April explains refers to "ugly duckling." After putting up with them for quite some time, she finally publicly explodes at them and tells them that she's not their awkward unfortunate sister anymore. She fires them from being bridesmaids and elects Christina, Meredith, and Arizona as her new bridesmaids. While this is all going on, Matthew and Jackson have their own drama. The two ...

Grey's Anatomy
“Halloween is not for the faint of heart. There’s a surprise around every corner. Some of the surprises are good. And some of the surprises are bad,” according to Meredith Grey.  And sure, there were some surprises during this episode! Check out some of the highlights from “Thriller” below:

Not so “easy-peasy” – Leah spends the night at Arizona’s place but slips out before breakfast, honoring Arizona’s wishes to keep things between them casual. Later at the hospital, Leah is bit by a “zombie” patient and freaks out at the thought of contracting HIV. Arizona walks in on Leah crying in the l...

Grey's Anatomy
Let's dive right in, since we've got a bunch of different plot threads to get to.

Christina and Meredith are still fighting because of the printer. Christina and Shane's plans continue to get more complex, as they try to print a conduit for a dying child. This results in them needing to use the printer for longer, but Meredith is not having it. She tells Christina that it's over, and that she needs the printer back, but Shane then yells at Meredith, defending Christina. Christina, who had been looking for a "human sex toy," then kisses Shane. While all of this is going on, Meredith is plan...

Grey's Anatomy
Sometimes these Grey's Anatomy posts really wear me out because there are so many plot lines to contend with, but this week was actually very different. The focus remained almost entirely on Callie Torres. I really, really liked this unusual format, because it gave a lot more time to focus on Callie and Arizona's characters, and the others were basically sidelined. I'd love to see some of the other characters given the same treatment in the future. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's take a look at this plot.

Callie is being sued for negligence in a case concerning a famous athlete. He ...

Grey's Anatomy
This week, the plot is centered around Meredith's new 3-D printer and all the cool research she's going to do with it. There were, as always, a bajillion different plot threads going on. I'm going to keep the summary of each one very brief, and then list some pros and cons.

April and Matthew are struggling to decide whether or not to wait until marriage to have sex. Matthew wants to get it out of the way, because he's still hung up on the fact that April has already lost her virginity. In the end, April doesn't want him to break his promise to God, so they decide to wait.

Pros - This was ...

Grey's Anatomy
Alright, we've got a Halloween themed episode this week, and it was actually quite a lot of fun. It always amazes me how much this show can fit into one episode without it feeling crowded, and this week is no exception. Let's jump right in and start going through these plots.

Webber has been teaching the (now second year) interns from his bedside, coaching them through his own case. When he wants one of the interns to perform the surgery, Bailey comes up with all sorts of reasons why it's not a good idea. In the end, however, Webber fires Bailey from his case and asks Meredith to take it o...

Grey's Anatomy
During this episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Derek and Callie team up for a project, Meredith dives into research, the interns struggle with their personal problems and Alex finds out more about his distant father. Check out some of the highlights below:

Map it out - Derek and Callie team up on a brain mapping project that was initially started by Callie for Arizona. Derek learns that his patient, a quadriplegic named Mickey, has a tumor so he has to take the sensors out of his brain. Mickey refuses to let him do so, unless Derek tries to take his life threatening tumor out at the same time. Aft...

'Grey's Anatomy' Review: I Bet It Stung (10x05)

October 20th, 2013 10:20pm EDT
Grey's Anatomy
Alright! A good episode that discussed a lot of different and important character dynamics. I really enjoyed this one.

Meredith is back at work, and excited to be scrubbing in on a heart/liver transplant with Christina (I know nothing about anything, but apparently this is a big deal sort of surgery, and it's very exciting to be involved with one). Bailey, who had initially been the surgeon dealing with the liver, is bitter about being replaced, but Meredith and Christina are just excited about doing groundbreaking surgery together.

There's only one problem - Meredith is too preoccupied w...

During this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Meredith and Derek return to work, Callie tries to heal, Catherine Avery returns and Alex continues to ignore his father. Check out the highlights from last night’s episode:

“I shouldn’t have to choose” – When Meredith returns to work she’s surprised to see that Cristina will be operating on her former patient who needs a heart and liver transplant. Even though she’s just getting back into the swing of things, Meredith asks to scrub in on the complicated procedure. Cristina agrees to let her, as long as she prepares herself. Throughout the day ...

Lights, camera, action!

Grey’s Anatomy celebrated its 200th episode in style as the doctors exchanged their scrubs for formal wear to raise money for the hospital. The party is cut short after a freak accident takes place in front of the guests but Jackson finds a way to save the night, as well as the hospital’s bank account. Check out some of the highlights from the episode:

Not so ‘ritzy’ – Jackson is horrified when he learns that the “tasteful, sophisticated, conservative” event he asked for turns into a spectacle of sorts, compliments of his party planner. The gala takes a turn for th...

Ellen Pompeo Gets Candid About Katherine Heigl's Exit From 'Grey's Anatomy'

Ellen Pompeo Gets Candid About Katherine Heigl's Exit From 'Grey
Ellen Pompeo has pulled no punches in an interview with the New York Post about Katherine Heigl's exit from "Grey's Anatomy" and the writer's desire to pair her character, Meredith Grey, with Isaiah Washington's Dr. Preston Burke.

Heigl left the series in 2010, and Pompeo explained: "You could understand why she wanted to go - when you're offered $12 million a movie and you're only 26. But Katie's problem is that she should not have renewed her contract. She re-upped, took a big raise and then tried to get off the show. And then her movie career did not take off."

Indeed, Heigl has strugg...

Fall 2013 TV Report (So Far)

October 5th, 2013 2:06pm EDT
Sleepy  Hollow
Here’s how the Fall TV season has been shaping up.


ABC doesn’t have a lot to celebrate about. Once Upon A Time and Revenge are both down season-to-season, yet up from last season’s finales. So, really, you could say they are even for the night. Their new drama, Betrayal, however is a disappointment. Low ratings. Does ABC have anything ready to replace Betrayal though? They’re already definitely going to cancel the much lower rated Lucky 7 (an almost certainty), can they afford to axe two shows?

CBS has a nice strong lineup of returning shows, all performing well. FOX’s shows are ...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: 'Seal Our Fate' And 'I Want You With Me'

October 2nd, 2013 12:03pm EDT
Grey’s Anatomy
The two-hour season premiere of Grey's Anatomy picks right back up in the midst of the storm the doctors were fighting through at the end of season nine. In typical Grey's Anatomy fashion, the cliffhangers that fans were left with last season were somewhat resolved - at least for now. The premiere brought highs, lows and a shocking death. Here are the highlights:

Seattle Grace Mercy Death - Although Webber's life was in jeopardy at the end of last season and for much of the premiere, he ends up making it out alive but there was another familiar casualty from the storm. Shane, out of jealou...

And here we have Part Two of the premiere. Oh boy.

Heather doesn't make it. Shane feels responsible for her death, and the other interns are all stunned. The four of them are told to think of good Heather memories for when Heather's mom arrives, and as they try to think of something, they realize that none of them had been a very good friend to her. Throughout the course of the episode, they share secrets and bond like they never have before. I find myself really enjoying the intern characters, and I like the way this show is setting itself up to keep on going indefinitely. I would keep wa...

September 28th, 2013 3:24pm EDT
Grey's Anatomy
Wow, what an opener. This show has a lot of characters and a lot of plots, so I'm going to do my best to recap everything important that happened in Part One of the premiere. I'll put Part Two separately.

So, it's after the storm. Meredith has just had her baby and remains in bed for the entire episode, getting updates from the other doctors about what's going on. There were some cute moments where Alex and Callie both come in to hold Meredith's baby so they can calm down for a bit.

Richard is still unconscious in the basement. Shane was supposed to go find him, but he passes the task to ...

The two-hour season premiere promises to be action packed.

September 3rd, 2013 11:46am EDT
Modern Family
Welcome to Week 2 of the 2013 Fall TV Preview. ABC kicks things off for the third year in a row. I wrote about the critics disdain for ABC president Paul Lee last week, but they acknowledge ABC's success with its veteran shows. Revenge and Once Upon A Time enter season three this month. Grey's Anatomy is entering its tenth season. Castle's on season six. The Neighbors and Nashville got a second season. ABC struggles to develop and maintain new shows. I don't know why. How futile is network analysis with the growth of streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix? Network analysis is interesti...

Sandra Oh
Sandra Oh plans to leave ABC’s hit medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy, after its 10th season.

Oh told The Hollywood Reporter, “Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go. It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well.”

Grey’s Anatomy boss and creator Shonda Rhimes confirmed to THR this upcoming year will be “bittersweet” but Cristina Yang will get a proper exit.

With Oh’s exit now official, how would you like to see Dr. Yang leave the series? Sound off below!

'Grey's Anatomy' Season Finale
Shonda Rhimes warned us that all bets were off for the Grey’s Anatomy season finale, appropriately titled “Perfect Storm,” that put several Grey Sloan Memorial doctors at risk. Warning, major finale spoilers ahead!

Upon learning that Ethan’s father survived his surgery, Owen decides to transport Ethan and his father to another hospital – in a helicopter during the storm. Although he advises Ethan he’s just getting moved to a “safer” hospital, Cristina is well aware that this has to do with Owen’s desire to adopt the boy. Cristina criticizes Owen for not talking to her about this. He insist...

Grey’s Anatomy
Here comes the sun superstorm!

During this week’s episode, the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial began to prepare for the massive superstorm heading their way. Prior to the storm, havoc crept up on the doctors while Alex defended Jo’s honor after her domestic dispute with Peckwell, April made a life-changing decision, Arizona kissed a girl (and liked it!) and Meredith went into labor. There was also a flash mob. It seemed like the perfect plotline to storm into a season finale. (See what I did there?)

Alex takes Jo in after finding her battered and bruised on his porch. She explains that thi...

'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: 'Do You Believe In Magic'

May 9th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Grey's Anatomy
According to Meredith, “There’s no such thing as magic, as far as we know.” She’s clearly right after a magician’s assistant turns up in the ER after being cut in half. Yes, the patient got cut in half with a chainsaw after the group’s magic act backfires. There’s nothing magical about that.

Arizona shares a flirty, yet awkward, moment with a woman named Lauren (Hilarie Burton) after she accidentally takes her coffee from the coffee cart. After their initial encounter earlier that morning, Arizona is surprised to learn that Lauren is actually Dr. Lauren Boswell, the craniofacial specialist...

During this week’s episode, Bailey is under an intense investigation by the CDC after two of her patients died and one remains in critical condition. During this time she gets the silent treatment, both professionally and personally, by her fellow doctors (excluding Meredith) and friends at Grey Sloan Memorial.

While Bailey’s busy preparing for her upcoming meeting with a CDC representative, Jackson attempts to convince his fellow board members to put out a press release about the current CDC investigation before matters get any worse. Jackson’s outnumbered (as usual) and the team decides ...

Grey's Anatomy
“Patients say it all the time. Tell me straight up, I just want to know what’s going on. Tell me. I can handle it.” At least that’s what Meredith thinks, but her emotions change when she gets her genome results back. As it turns out, Meredith tests positive for more than one of the genetic markers of Alzheimer’s. Meredith and Derek later discuss her mapping results, but Meredith just wants one thing – an updated will – considering Lexie is still Zola’s guardian.

Meredith later suggests appointing Cristina and one of Derek’s sisters, whomever he chooses, to be guardians of their children. D...

We open to see Callie preparing for her big speech at the TED Conference. Yes, Callie is speaking at the TED Conference, even though she has a horrible fear of public speaking. But that’s before the hospital is overrun with patients when a gas tanker flips on the highway, exploding shortly after. Before the incoming patients arrive, Alex finds Jo and Jason making out, so he knocks on the window and demands she check her pager. Jo goes downstairs to see a familiar patient she treated the other night. His mother, Casey (guest star Sarah Chalke), explains that her son’s fever keeps spiking and...

Grey's Anatomy
The newly named Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital finally opened its ER’s doors prepared with a new machine – the LODOX, a full-body scanner that can complete x-rays in 13 seconds. Not too shabby, right? As Owen, Jackson and April unveil their new cutting edge machine to the staff, they receive a call about an incoming patient who was in a serious ATV accident, so they’ll have to wait before they can test out their new toy.

That same morning, Derek talks to his unborn child about his first fly fishing experience in order to calm the baby (McBaby?) down. Meredith expresses her concern over possi...

As a result of Catherine Avery’s big purchase for her son, Jackson now has the deciding vote amongst the group, much to everyone’s dismay. When he comes in late for their first official meeting together as a board, Meredith, Derek, Cristina, Callie and Arizona appear extremely annoyed. Jackson brings donuts as a peace offering, but the group is not impressed with his – well, the Harper Avery Foundation’s – ideas for the hospital. Although Jackson insists it could take a month or so to reach a decision about the ER reopening, the Harper Avery Foundation is adamant on getting new leadership t...

Should he stay or should he go?

When Grey's Anatomy returns from its brief hiatus, it seems that tensions are extremely high due to Jackson's new role at the hospital. This causes a lot of stress amongst the staff, resulting in a possibly permanent resignation from a beloved doctor at Seattle Grace.
