Sorry for the delay, my FTP server is really really slow for some unknown reason so this has taken longer than anticipated, the clips plus next weeks promos are still currently uploading and I’ll post them when they are up. I have to say I really loved this episode, it was a great opener. I found it very character centered so the Ellen fan in me is very please, the MD fan not so much but honestly this episode was really about sending Mark off, and I felt the storyline was credible and moving and was a very beautiful tribute to Eric Dane who has played Mark Sloan so brilliantly since he graced the show back in Season 2. So the lack of MD, I find myself unable to be upset over it.
Many people said that they wish that Meredith would remember that Derek is her husband not Cristina, and this is very true every other time. But you have to give her a free pass this time. She lost her sister and now Mark is dying in front of her, she’s all twitchy and not dealing and its understandable that she couldn’t stand to be there, that she ran. Sure it would have been nice to see her there by Derek’s side, but I really can’t begrudge her at this point because she’s really in pain at the moment and is one step away from a complete and total meltdown.
Anyway, just my thoughts and on with the caps!
