11x01 Grey’s musings:
Shondland could we not afford a better wig for child Meredith or even better cast a child you don’t need to wig up? It looked cheap and fake.
Meredith is not hostile to Maggie because she knows she is her sister but because she has in a sense replaced Cristina. I am hoping this initial hostility will become something else when she does find out.
Owen’s hair is distracting me. In a Billy Idol sort of way.
Meredith are you sure you want to get in that bed where Jo was just naked?
Geena’s intro was a bit weird and confusing. Are we supposed to assume she is a regular attending rock star surgeon at GSMH who has been there awhile? Since Geena is just there for an arc will she just fade away into the invisible part of the hospital like she was in before? Did I miss something? Maybe we just don’t have all her details yet but they made it seem as if she had been there awhile.
The pacing was good and I enjoyed all of the episode - although the vending machine scene felt a bit forced to me and I hope for better MerDer interaction once Dempsey films for more than a day.
I loved Calzona in the episode. There was a relaxed and more organic interaction between them even when they were not “in sync” at the end. Felt normal - not traumatic and threatening.
I love the idea of Arizona doing something new because Peds has become a snoozefest (at least for me) with Alex getting on equal footing with his teacher now. It would be nice to see her raise her skills to an Addison level.
I am taking a wait and see approach with the direction this Calzona story line is going. Africa 2.0 seems too obvious right now and I don’t trust Shonda to be that obvious. I am not completely sure about Callie’s reasons for wanting a baby right now either. Her waffling about surrogacy and expecting the worst with that was unexpected, interesting and deeper than what it seemed on the surface I think. I am expecting some sharp twists and turns in their road ahead.
Was that side about meeting with the surrogacy counselor a fake or is that in 11x2?
I do still think the bottom line of their story is going to be highlighting the commitment between them.
I was thinking the same when Meredith climbed in that bed.
I have a feeling that they want to use Africa 2.0 to redeem Arizona. She dealt with Africa 1.0 very poorly, this is her chance to show us that she has grown and can handle the similar situation in a different, and better way. If so, that could ease Callie’s insecurity greatly.
