Grey's Anatomy

If you're a regular non-watcher of Grey's Anatomy, or if you're a regular watcher but have missed the last two episodes, you should probably just skip this post and come back tomorrow.

So - I have two theories, and I want to get them down before tonight in case one of them comes true. The first is that Meredith is actually going to die and the audience will be treated to the rest of the season/series with Mer as a ghost and the stories still told from her vantage point, but as an omniscient, omnipotent ethereal presence. I am really hoping this isn't the case, but it seems plausible. My second theory? Two words: Bobby Ewing. For those of you who didn't watch Dallas, viewers once spent an entire season thinking Bobby was dead, only to find out that THE WHOLE SEASON was his wife's dream. I think that, for Grey's, everything we've seen for almost the entire first episode, the whole second episode, and all but the last few minutes of tonight's episode will have taken place in Meredith's head while she was in the bathtub. For real. She just slipped into a daydream while she was soaking in the water. This seems like the kind of mean yet stupid thing writers would do.

If either of these story lines is what actually plays out, you may all start calling me Miss Cleo.

Grey's death (dream?) sequence story line - I (let's see what happens tonight)

I LOVE this show. I think the announcers LIED. They said last night's episode would be "devastating". It was not devastating. Sure Grey's mom died, but weren't some of us kinda hoping for that?? Sure I had some misty moments with Denny and such, but no full on tears. Regular episodes of this show have made me cry more than that. I think it was a ratings ploy.
I still like the show. I can't help myself.

I think EITHER of those scenarios might have been better than her just getting magically better. To be honest, I thought the whole "she fell in the water and almost died three weeks later" thing was drawn-out and over-blown. Swim, Meredith, give me a break!! How many times can one sad-sack ALMOST die in the course of two seasons? I love this show anyway, but I think Meredith is the weakest link and should be voted off the island... WHY DID THEY HAVE TO NAME THE SHOW AFTER HER?!!!

If there were a character named "ER" on ER, they wouldn't have killed him or her either... though they might have tried.
