If you’ve seen or known an integral part of me, you’re very well aware how addicted I am to Grey’s Anatomy. (OMG it rhymes! =P)
(Warning: to those who haven’t finished watching Season 3, potential spoilers right ahead)
Aside from the mushiness and cheesiness of the drama behind the operating room and the internal struggles of the scalpel-wielding surgeons, what makes Grey’s fly off the ground is its impeccable writing. Believe me, it got me hooked. Here’s a sampler:
Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass.
And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim.
The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon.
We can only lie to ourselves for so long.
We are tired. We are scared.
Denying it doesn’t change the truth.
Sooner or later, we have to put aside our denial, and face the world!
Head on, guns blazing.
Denial. It’s not just a river in Egypt. It’s a freaking ocean.
So how do you keep from drowning in it?
Don’t you just love it? I just finished watching Season 3 and I’d have to say, it’s my favorite season so far. So nerve-wracking, almost brought me to tears half a dozen times. Very exhilarating season, what with all the twisted relationships, unexpected deaths and bitter farewells. Strange how we never imagined how the lives of surgeons could be so overdramatic, that they can just wail in pain of a lost loved one while operating on a patient. But then again, that’s TV. Everything’s overdramatic.
Season 3 definitely opened up a thousand doors and windows into the heart of every character. We discover Meredith’s continuous struggle with his father, ending with a bitch slap right smack in her face. Cristina proved her efforts futile in trying so hard to become what Preston wants her to be, which led to the most heart-wrenching finale so far. George and Izzie gets knocked up, which is gross. While Alex battles between what he once was and what he wants to be. C’mon, man, you gotta have come balls!
To be quite honest, I really don’t want McDreamy and Meredith to fall apart. They’re cute as a couple. Even with the introduction of Addison into their already tangled love affair, I still stuck through with them. Somewhere inside me I knew she’s gonna choose Derek over that vet guy, and the ending, with Meredith saying “It’s over… so over,” I just can’t accept the possibility of them not ending up together.
I know what happened to Burke and Cristina was due to Isaiah’s departure from the show, but it still melded through seamlessly. In rare times when you see Yang show emotion, you really ought to prepare. Remember “sedate me“? Hehe.
I can’t wait for Season Four where the plot turns a full 360 degrees. I think it’s great that they’re kind of reformatting the show, to bring in some new kicks. The interns are gonna be residents, new interns to harass and… are we going to have a new chief? The finale episode was far from telling, but I’m guessing yes, someone’s gonna take over the top spot in Seattle Grace’s surgical wing.
Here’s a treat for fans: the final scene of the season, with the very beautiful “Keep Breathing” by Ingrid Michaelson playing in the background.
See you all in Season Four! =)
