No I am not going to recap Grey’s Anatomy. But I fell like we need a place to post about this show tonight while it is on. I watched Grey’s when it first came on, was that ten years ago? But, like most Shonda Rimes shows, it was great for a few seasons and then it starts to lose its appeal.
But I got sucked back in when Shonda completely took over every ABC program during primetime on Thursdays. I of course have forgotten all those early episodes I watched, and it took me a minute to remember this is the doctor everyone called McDreamy. For me, I was sort of watching like a dementia patient and falling in love with his character all over again.
And then out of the blue after a fantastic episode where he saves people on the side of the road who had been in a horrific accident. He gets hit by a Mack truck and DIES in the final minutes. Despite being in the first year of a two year contract renewal, Shonda kills him. It appears that Shonda Rimes found him difficult and Shonda has a history of having no tolerance for drama on the set, so she fired him.
It was such a shock that most people didn’t believe it! Surely, that entire episode was a dream, right? Killing McDreamy pretty much kills the whole damn show, right?
On this morning’s Wendy Williams, Wendy polled the audience and asked if they were pissed about the sudden death of McDreamy. They were. She said but they are going to watch tonight’s two hour show anyway, right? And the majority said no.
Has Shonda finally gone too far with her iron fist? Tonight’s ratings will tell. I for one will be tuning in. Is this the finale?
It seems that Patrick Dempsey’s wife left him and I believe his mother died shortly before he got fired. If that is all true, bad things do come in threes!
Anyway, let me know if you are watching and feel free to comment as the show goes on. I will try to join in but I am so far behind with blog duties today, I will be multitasking.
RIP McDreamy 🙁
