Sandra Oh’s final episode and it was the perfect sendoff. There was the ‘big drama’ of the huge trauma case to keep the episode busy but that wrapped up pretty early giving enough time for a series of perfect Meredith/Cristina moments. Meredith putting Cristina in the cab, THE DANCING IT OUT to a song I always associate with GA, Cristina’s speech to Meredith ….. I liked that they wrote Shane out by having him go with Cristina. Poor Owen/Cristina never really had a proper goodbye but I think that was for the best and worked well because there is no way there can ever be real closure there.
And the reveal about Dr Pierce being Ellis Grey’s daughter who she gave up for adoption and therefore Richard’s daughter and Meredith’s half-sister? Woah, I did not see that coming. Way to keep the “Grey” in Grey’s Anatomy!
I obviously don’t like the Derek/Meredith tension so that’s a downer in what was otherwise a surprisingly upbeat finale for Grey’s.
