Grey's Anatomy: 8×24 – Flight

Faced with a life threatening situation, the doctors must fight to stay alive while trying to save the lives of their peers; Bailey and Ben make a decision regarding their relationship; and Teddy is presented with a tempting offer. Meanwhile, Richard plans a special dinner for the residents.

Cliffhanger Alert

DEAR GOD THIS FINALE IS ACTUALLY REAL NO MATTER HOW MUCH I HOPED THE EPISODE WOULD END WITH IT ALL BEING REVEALED AS MEREDITH’S DREAM SEQUENCE.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just say seriously, NO!!!!!!!!!!

I mean okay if it had to be one of the ones in the plane then I would rather it was Mark or Lexie than anyone else but now that Lexie is dead????  And the fact that she died relatively early in the episode?!  WTF was that about??!

NO. MY HEART IS BROKEN. I’ve always liked Lexie but never LOVED her but I always took it for granted that she would be around after Ellen Pompeo left to carry on the Grey name and SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!  I never thought it would be her.

AND MARK’S SPEECH. HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I think I just fell in love with Mark Sloan.

And the tragedy that Meredith never got to say goodbye to her sister and the fact that I love Meredith/Lexie scenes and we didn’t even get one final one (although I get that having that Mark/Lexie scene was the most powerful option but I was still hoping that Meredith would get there right at the end and hold her hand whilst Lexie let out a final “Meredith ….” or something).

I love the interplay of Meredith etc. saving Mark’s life and Teddy saving the patient’s life with the same heart problem.  Nice touch show.

Who would have thought that Cristina would have provided the dark humour in this situation?!

ARIZONA AND MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If the season premiere opens with Arizona coughing blood and then “dying” (no matter how temporarily) I am going to SCREAM.

Can I just mention how it’s amazing that all of them survived the initial impact of the plane crash? I’m just saying y’all.  Also, loved the flashback at the start to the pilot episode.

Teddy’s speech about Henry!!!!!! TEDDY’S SPEECH ABOUT TO OWEN ABOUT FRIENDSHIP!!!!!!  After like 2 seasons, finally a meaningful scene between them.

April’s speech to Jackson!!!!!!

Alex’s speech to Arizona’s voicemail.

WTF OWEN FIRED TEDDY? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?!

AND THE EPISODE ENDED WITHOUT ANYONE KNOWING WHERE THEY WERE OR THAT THEY HAD CRASHED???????? WHAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!

Okay I ended this episode knowing that Chyler Leigh was definitely not returning next season but WTF KIM RAVER’S IS LEAVING AS WELL??????? TEDDY IS ACTUALLY FIRED.  WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Way to rub salt into the wound.  I cannot process.

Damn you Shonda effing Rhimes for making me feel things.  For getting every single piece of dialogue in this episode spot on.  I am super pissed at you especially for [insert character name] storyline though because I didn’t even know that was [insert semi-spoiler text here] until I read this (sidenote: I am so glad I avoided Twitter because I went into this episode completely unspoiled …. on the other hand maybe I could have done with the warning).

No other episode will top the Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 finale for sheer suspense but this tops that for the tragedy and for tying me in absolute knots.  I can’t even you guys ……  I mean I could just about make it over one thing if I knew that next season we would still have [insert character name] but now even the awesome news that the old crew is hanging around seems to be a very dim light at the end of the tunnel because I just didn’t see that one coming …..

And to think I’ve got to make it through several more finales this weekend ….. at least I know that nothing can possibly equal this for sheer HEARTBREAK.

It just doesn’t seem real.  And I know it could be worse but ……

I feel sick.
