grey's season finale recap {season 10}

I did recaps of Grey’s season 6 and 7...so I thought I would do one for season 10!  Even though I’m a week late, I needed some time to ponder some things and rewatch! ;)  {Looking back, I’m kicking myself now for not doing ones for seasons 8 and 9!!!}

I stayed up late(r than normal) so that I could watch the Grey’s finale.  I usually just wait until the weekend after, but I had to see Cristina’s departure!  

I have never fully loved Cristina, just because of who she is.  She got on my nerves, I didn’t agree with a lot of her choices and I didn’t like the way she treated a lot of people.  But over the years I have come to just accept that she is who she is, and that’s what makes her HER!  I believe that Owen Hunt semi-softened her.  I never really thought twice about Hunt, but seeing his love for Cristina this season has made me have a little crush on him!  He is CRAZY about her & I love that!  

I love love LOVE Derek and Meredith together, and always have!  I have been rewatching the seasons from the beginning (they come on Lifetimes, three episodes a day...shesh.  Yeah I’m old school and don’t have Netflix) and knowing what I know now it makes the process of their relationship that much sweeter.  It goes to show that even after the troubled life Meredith has had, that you can still have it all!  

Until now...I kinda figured what was coming with Meredith not wanting to go with Derek to DC when I saw the preview of the season finale the week before.  I also knew that the Grey of GREY’s Anatomy couldn’t be moving across the country if the show was going to continue!  That is a tough call. This is a once in a lifetime career opportunity for Derek, but at the same time--Meredith’s career matters just as much! :(  Annnnd they just had a baby!  & have we seen much of Zola lately?!  What happened to her??

When Jackson tells Webber that there is only going to be one open spot on the board, because Derek and Meredith are going conference call in each meeting.  I immediately thought “Bailey needs to take Cristina’s spot”.  It was just an instinct to me...knowing the people I know at Seattle Grace, Miranda Bailey is someone who needs to be on the board.

And we saw...that was exactly what Webber had in mind!!  But...Cristina had someone else in mind!!  I was surprised she gave everything to Alex.  VERY thoughtful of Cristina...but WHY Alex??

The new head of cardio--I found it noticeable that she was of color.  Nothing out of the ordinary, but it did trigger my thought process a little bit when I first saw her.  Hummmm….

I kinda feel sorry for April and Jackson and the fact that they are expecting...even though I think he is smokin’ hott and she is just the cutest little thing!  I’m not sure how I feel about the little baby they are going to have TOGETHER though!

Also...I can’t stand the crazy media.  On Grey’s or in real life.  I saw some articles this week that had so totally twisted the truth it was INSANE.  But that’s just what the media does (sometimes) I guess.  As annoying as it is, I’m afraid it’s just part of it.

It was good to see Leah step in and help the guy out with the bulging eye balls.  It goes to show that she has the potential to make a wonderful doctor even if she wasn’t so hot at being a surgeon.  

Derek and Cristina’s good bye was really sweet...I can see myself having that type of good bye with several of my best friends’ husbands (in a non creepy kind of way! ;))...so I can totally relate to that type of good bye.

I have never been a fan of Catherine’s.  Especially after the way she has treated and talked to April about being married to her son and what her future entails.  I’m pretty sure that is up to April, NOT Catherine.  April is scared to bring a baby into this crazy world, and I can TOTALLY relate to that feeling!  I’ve often had thoughts about feeling guilty for bringing Ryder into such a crazy world and what him and his generation ares going to have to deal with in their future.  I also find myself asking myself, “Do I really want to bring another child into the world so that they can suffer?  & deal with this crazy messed up world?”  Yes...I could provide for them and try and give them the best life possible, but there are somethings I just can’t and won’t be able to control...and as a parent--THAT.IS.SCARY!!!

I love that Catherine calms Aprils fears and tells her that “good parents are what change the world.”  This isn’t really a side of Catherine we have seen before!  But that is so true!--Because those parents are the ones who are raising the kids of today, and the adults of tomorrow.  Even though the number of good parents may seem to be going down, we can only take control of our part and do our best to raise those “good kids”...because those good kids will hold our future.

Don’t we all wish we had a Cristina or a Meredith in our lives where we could “dance it out” with!?  They have the weirdest but best relationship!   

I wasn’t too sad to see Shane leave.  His character was just kinda blah anyways.

The goodbye between Cristina and Hunt was pretty sad...especially for him.  I’ve grown a love for him I never thought I would.  The goodbye though--I wouldn’t have expected anything more from Cristina.  

And man...what a friend of Cristina to come back and tell Mer the TRUTH about how she really feels about her leaving for Washington.  So many times as friends we want so badly to say one thing, but we are afraid of being honest and making them mad, so we don’t say it at all….when it truly NEEDS to be said.  Just think if Cristina hadn’t have said that to Meredith...she might have made a huge mistake by moving across the country and missing her purpose at Sloan Grey Memorial.  

I can’t quite figure out why Cristina left everything to Alex...including her spot on the board?!  What about Bailey?--Maybe Cristina wants to ensure Alex is still apart of Sloan Grey Memorial Hospital since he has left to work at his own place….?!  Hummm...lots to think about!

(Off subject:  but can we talk about how good Meredith looks lately?  Every since she had a baby she just looks fuller and happier and so much prettier to me!  She looked way too unrealistically skinny in the early seasons.  I’m also loving her blonde hair!)

AAAANNNNNNND--for the most most shocking part of the episode {to me}.  When Webber is sitting outside with Pierce (the new head of cardio).  Again...not to sound any which way, but I knew something was about to go down.  When she started talking about being adopted and that her mom’s name was “all over the hospital” I knew, KNew, KNEW that she was Richard’s daughter with Elise Grey!!!  AHHH!!  What a wonderful twist!!

But then I was curious as to how Elise kept that hidden from Thatcher, Meredith, and Chief Webber for...forever!

How is Webber going to take this?  How is Meredith going to take it when she hears the news?  She already found out she had a half sister from her dad in that hospital.  And now she is about to hear that she has a half sister from her mom in that hospital as well.

Once again...Shonda leaves us speechless and anxiously waiting for the Fall to see how things are going to play out!

Did you have any Grey’s season finale thoughts that I didn’t have?  Please share!
