We seem to be thoroughly unenthused about last Thursday’s episodes. Grey’s Anatomy, like Go On, was less than amazing. Best described as ‘fine’, it neither kept us on the edge of our seats nor moved us to tears – the two staples of ‘good’ Grey’s. This was pure filler.
It wasn’t without merit though, and kicked up some interesting storylines for the future. Most notable of these, and now in its second week, is that of the kid (Ethan) whose parents are both on the brink of death, and Owen’s relationship with him. We may be way off base here, but we see this causing problems down the road. We envisage two separate scenarios. In the first, Ethan’s parents both die and his grandma doesn’t want to take him, so Owen adopts him (or tries to). In the second, Owen is just reminded about how much he wants kids, and that causes problems with him and Cristina.
Also of interest for the future development of the show (and likely to feature in the Season 9 cliffhanger, provided that there are no shoot outs in the hospital) is this week’s epidemic strand. Bailey appears to be spreading infections in her patients, and the final scenes of “She’s Killing Me” could be troubling for Bailey fans. It’s unclear what will happen next (though lawyers, depositions and investigations will almost certainly feature) but, potentially, the least we can expect is a job-on-the-line cliffhanger. We may close out the current season unsure whether or not Bailey will be returning in the Fall.
