For those of you who don’t know, Grey’s Anatomy aired last night in the USA with the season 12 finale. Every week, I wake up and watch the new episode on my very legal and not at all dodgy website that I found a few years back. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to my laptop for the abuse I put it through weekly if not daily…
This morning I have decided to blog about it while I watch it! So just to warn you… THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. Please leave now if you don’t want it ruined. If you’re here to read something about Grey’s Anatomy but don’t want to read my thoughts on this episode, why not try reading The Grey’s Anatomy Tag ?
The episode of Grey’s Anatomy opens with Meredith and Alex lying on their backs on the grass, discussing Amelia’s wedding and whether there is only “one true love” for each person. Alex of course claims his was Izzie but Meredith and I strongly disagree with him.
Two minutes in and the feels are already very strong. Amelia is on the phone with her mum, begging her or anyone from the family to come to the wedding. Queue me looking like a baby with tears streaming down my face. How can they not go to her wedding?? Poor Maggie doesn’t know what to do…
Bailey and her husband are still bickering because of an earlier episode. I’m getting rather tired of them. Yes, he shouldn’t have done what he did but please just drop the storyline already.
Haha the twisted sisters (Meredith, Maggie and Amelia are now the twisted sisters to me, even though no one will ever replace Cristina) are always amusing together. Amelia has now locked herself in the bathroom while sobbing. Maggie is of course trying to be the sympathetic good cop while Meredith is telling her she has 20 minutes to pull herself together. Still not even 5 minutes in! Now Owen is here to try and talk to her (he’s the groom). Aw okay, he’s being really sweet. I forgot why I love him. Amelia’s coming out now! See, they’re perfect for each other.
Oh wait, April is Owen’s best man? Yes, let’s have the pregnant woman as a best man when she looks good to drop. Very typical of Grey’s Anatomy – lets us know subtly that something is going to go wrong.
Aw no there’s a woman with dementia who’s attacked her son and she’s convinced that Jackson is her husband. I’m sad.
Okay. I have had to pause it now because I’m ready to rant about Jo and Alex. They are perfect together. Alex has now proposed to Jo 3 times and she keeps saying no but not telling him why and yet they stay together. Now Alex is done trying to persuade her to marry him, goes to their house to get his suit for the wedding, and the first thing Jo says to him is “Let’s make a baby”. No. Go away. I love you and you’re beautiful but no. Either marry Alex or leave him to mourn the loss of what is possibly his one true love, but don’t have a baby. Pressing play again. She still won’t tell him why she won’t marry him. Now he’s packing a bag. After a bit of arguing, he has now stormed out. Well done Alex.
Okay, now onto Meredith and Riggs. They’ve obviously slept together and I’m all happy for them but I miss Derek. Although this sexual tension is fun.
Oh brilliant, April, the best man, has lost the rings. Brilliant. And I think she’s starting to have contractions.
Meredith and Owen are now talking about Cristina, Owen’s ex wife. And Amelia overheard them talking. It sucks. But she looks gorgeous. Derek was supposed to walk her down the aisle and now Amelia’s crying because he’s dead. Oooooh Amelia is confronting Meredith about her conversation with Owen. She’s freaking out. I want to hug her. 16 minutes into the episode and I’m already emotionally exhausted. I think Amelia’s forgotten that Meredith is her family. Meredith is telling her everything she can do to help and I’m crying again. Shonda knows how to hurt me in so many ways. Why do I watch Grey’s Anatomy??
Haha okay so now Amelia is running away and Meredith is driving the runaway car and they’ve taken Maggie with them and of course the only person to see anything was Richard Webber.
Yay! April found the rings! And her contractions are getting worse.
We’re back to the dementia woman and she’s completely forgotten she had a son. Jackson tried to tell her and now she thinks she’s pregnant! 😂
Callie and Arizona are having more problems even though they’re no longer married and they’ve settled the baby problem and I’m angry because I want them to be together but Arizona cheated and doesn’t deserve Callie anymore.
20 minutes in… Jo and Steph scene now with Jo complaining that she pushed Alex away. I couldn’t agree more child. Steph doesn’t have the patience to stay with Jo right now. Jo is drunk.
Owen is now aware that everyone’s everywhere. April is about to have her baby in Meredith’s house without her doctors… Tense! And Jackson is in surgery so doesn’t know she’s in labour.
Amelia is now freaking out about running out on her wedding. Oh wow. This is going to be a long episode. 25 minutes.
Back to Jo. Oh Jo just said something along the lines of “I want to marry him but I can’t. I can’t marry anyone.” Are we about to know her secret?! SHE’S ALREADY MARRIED?!? Wow. Okay I saw this coming but this just stupid.
Baby is breach. Brilliant. April and Ben are trying to birth this baby alone. She needs a C-section. At least Ben is finally saying he won’t do it! Baby is dying and she needs surgery and this isn’t going to end well. At least he’s called Bailey! They need Bailey.
Owen is waiting patiently for Amelia to show up again. He believes in her. I think she’ll make it. Twisted Sisters are back at the wedding but she hasn’t gone in yet.
Baby about to be cut out. They have called the hospital and are being talked through the c section by Arizona, Bailey, and Jackson. Jackson is freaking out because April is telling Ben to save the baby no matter what and leave her to die if necessary. This is going to be a nightmare. I’m terrified. They’re having to cut the baby out without any anesthetic. Oh good, the ambulance got there! Just to see if they’re alive. She looks like she’s alive. There’s a baby! I can’t see if it’s alive…
Back to Jo. Jo is talking about the guy she married. He abused her. That much has come out. Now I’m crying again. She’s been through so much. No wonder she won’t marry Alex. Whoa, her real name isn’t Jo. Shit, Alex just walked in. Now he’s beating up the only one who knows Jo’s secret.
April had a baby girl! And Riggs brought the rings to Owen. And Amelia is back and ready to get married. And Riggs has been invited to the wedding at long last! Meredith is talking about her wedding to Derek and I’m sad again. Whole roller coaster of emotions.
Yay! Wedding! She looks beautiful. Jackson’s holding his baby and she’s crying and I’m so broody right now. And April is stable again. And finally Bailey and Ben are sorted. Definitely a good season finale. I have never been so happy at a season finale. Where’s the pain, Shonda?
Arizona just brought Sophia to see Callie, this could be the source of the pain. Let’s see… Nope. Arizona is giving Callie Sophia so she can go to New York to follow Blake (Callie’s girlfriend) and now I’m sobbing because all the happiness! What is wrong with me?
Oh brilliant. Maggie loves Riggs. Brilliant.
What a way to end the season. I’m over the moon. Best one yet. Yes there were some sad moments and I have been crying but let’s take the fans back to other season finales. George died, Lexie died, Cristina left, Jackson and April ran away from April’s wedding to that ambulance guy – I think his name was Matthew? -, so much sad stuff! Thank you to anyone who has followed through to now. What did you think of the episode? Let me know in the comments below!
