I have two words to describe the final episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 10: FLAWLESS & HEARTBREAKING.
FLAWLESS- This episode was well written and well-directed. The editing was great. I loved everything about it, especially the fact that no one died. It was one of the best “Grey’s Anatomy” finales ever.
HEARTBREAKING- Obviously because it was Sandra Oh’s (Cardio god, Cristina Yang) final episode. I’m going to miss her. She’s been part of the show for 10 years, she’s one of the originals and she’s my favorite character (next to Meredith Grey).
I love how her story ended, I love that she didn’t die. I love that she just went to Switzerland to pursue her dreams of being a great surgeon and there she’s the Director of the Cardiothoracic Department.
I love that before she left, she acknowledged that Alex is a very good surgeon. I love that she gave her seat on the board to him.
The ‘space’ between Cristina and Owen on this episode was well done. I think Cristina in the OR gallery while Owen was in surgery was the perfect way to say good-bye.
I love how simple her goodbye is to Derek.
But the MOST heartbreaking of it all were all the Meredith-Cristina scenes. Awww, I’m gonna miss the twisted sisters. They have the most amazing friendship ever. They were each other’s PERSON for goodness sake. The scene where they were walking in the halls of GSMH and Mer was saying that she’s moving to D.C. and then Cristina kind off hugged her and Mer was shocked and confused, because they don’t do hugging. That scene was really funny.
The cab scene. Ohmygosh. When Mer said
” What do you need? An ‘ I love you’ or something?”
When she said that, the look on Cristina’s face was heartbreaking, like she really wanted her to say those words… and she DID! Oh those damn three words.
But it’s not yet over. I love that out of nowhere Cristina came running and grabbed Meredith’s hand while she was busy talking to her sister-in-law.
I must say this scene was the BEST on-call room scene ever. I love how Cristina asked Mer to take care of Owen and Alex. I love that she reminded her to take care of herself and to not do reckless things that would put her in danger. I love how she said
“You’re my PERSON. I NEED you alive. You make me brave”
I love that before she left, she gave Mer a great advise about her future decision and that even though they’ll be away from each other, they will always lean on each other and will still be each other’s person.
I thought that their good-byes would just end with them telling each other “You’re my person”. I never thought that they would dance it out.
Overall the way they said good-bye was just EPIC. To be honest, I think the show’s main couple is not MerDer (Meredith-Derek). I think the main couple is the TWISTED SISTERS. I am so going to miss seeing them together, every week on my TV screen. I’m going to miss hearing them say those three very special words to each other: “YOU’RE MY PERSON”
Before I end this post, I’m going to leave you with this BEAUTIFUL SCENE from my favorite duo from the finale:
