Thoughts: Dream A Little Dream of Me

Posted in Grey's News, Recaps by El Guru on September 26, 2008

Here we are, Season 5! It just seems like yesterday I saw my first episode of Grey’s. Actually, it was during the summer of 2005 and it was a rerun of a season 2 episode. My first thought it why did they had cram so many story lines into one episode. Yes it was a two-hour episode, but still there was a lot too much happening. I am not going to cover everything, mainly because I cain’t remember it all (too bad the DVR is in the other room).

First off I was sure glad that Meridith’s dream was just that. I was thinking “Oh great, we’re going back to the season 3 theme of killing off characters” and was so close to changing the channel. But somehow I knew she had to be dreaming, I mean it was only the first few minutes, no one really dies in the first few minutes.

The main theme, the three ladies in limo and their husbands in another, was a bit much. Trying to keep up with six characters got to be a bit ‘tedious’ at times. Reminded me too much of the “Grey’s Event” multipart episodes from Season 3 (Six Days) Season 4 (Crash into Me). Then throw in a few other story lines such as Meridith, Christina & Derek, George & Lexi, Erica and Callie and even Rose. It is enough to make me want to pull my hair out.

As usual the writer add some comic relief, and boy did they need some in this episode. The EMT soldier was great and would kind like to see him as a regular. Richard (The Chief) sure would and even offered him a job at Seattle Grace on the spot. Alex had the line of the night when he was in CT room with Izzie doing the scan on the lady who’s memory reset every 30 seconds. “You’re on a spaceship…enjoy the ride!” Also liked how they were encouraging the wives to ‘steal’ their husbands from the other hospital. Then there was Bailey and the clock with the “wrong time”, nice to see a lighter side of Bailey again.

Oddly enough, I am not sorry to see Rose go. She’s been a thorn in Derek’s side and a hindrance on his and Meridith’s relationship (whatever that might be at the moment). We did learn an important lesson about her though, don’t make her mad. Especially when she is handing sharp instruments! Luckily Derek’s hand was only a flesh wound, don’t need another repeat of Burke.

Christina sure had to endure a lot in this episode. Putting up with Meredith would turn out to be the least of her problems. Wonder how much she is going to put up with being belittle by Erica Hahn before she changes her specialty/field or even leaves Seattle Grace (hope not). Slipping on the ice and falling flat on her back could happen, but then being impaled by a falling icicle is a bit far fetched. But, then this is Grey’s where strange things happened.

I am not saying it was bad episode, just a bit ‘busy’. Looking forward to the new season of Private Praratice next Wednesday (October 1st). I need someting lighter and simpler after this episode of Grey’s. I hope when Grey’s does return in two weeks, things will have calmed down a bit.
