“Grey’s”: Let Denny R.I.P.
Yes, he’s still dead, and yes, he’s still on the show. Don’t get wrong: As I’ve written a zillion times, I’ve loved Jeffrey Dean Morgan for years (see my late 1990s interview with him at jdmorgan.net/a_pg01.php). But enough is enough with his returning to Izzie as a corporeal being and only she can see him. Heck, they even had hot sex last night! (Either that or Izzie has a REALLY vivid imagination.) But the Izzie/Denny storyline started and ended two seasons ago. Could this be the “Grey’s” writers’ attempts (and a reluctant one at that, I’m sure) to provide Katie Heigel with the Emmy-worthy material she, sniff, felt she didn’t get last season? If so, it’s not working because it involves dead Denny. Perhaps that’s exactly the writers’ evil (but justified) plan. If so, good for them! If not, let Denny go! It’s already past ridiculous.
Elsewhere, dippy Lexie and her fellow clueless interns did something soooo stoopid that they should have been kicked out of Seattle Grace pronto, instead of just going on probation: They tried a solo “appy” (appendectomy) on an eager and willing Sadie—USING A TEXTBOOK AS THEIR GUIDE! Dumb and dumber. This group of goofballs is far more immature than Mer, Alex & Co. were when they were interns. I wouldn’t trust “Little Grey” to apply a Band-Aid to my pinky. Boy, did they get off easy!
Meanwhile, though he denies it, man-whore Sloan is still on the trail of “Little Grey.” Puh-LEEZE. He is SO out of her league. Using a football metaphor, she’s in Pop Warner and he’s a starter in the NFL.
It was nice to see Dr. Hunt not be such a gung-ho bully last night, especially when he sat on Cristina’s doorstep, waiting for her to get home. He was actually shy and sheepish, especially when telling Yang that she is beautiful. And it was great that she didn’t get all girly on him and take him up on his offer to go up to her apartment. Good for you, Cristina. Your action will only make him respect you more!
Next Thursday is, as you know unless you’re living in a vacuum, Thanksgiving Day. Thus, a repeat, the two-hour episode that opened this season, on October 25. That’s OK—most of us, I hope, have better things to do that day than veg in front of the boob tube.
