One thing that was better this episode than last was a side view of the ferry showing the impact zone. Last week I'd assumed they were dealing with a fire basically until Izzy entered to where the humped cars were.
I expect that Meredith will be transformed from her brush with death, and knowing the show, probably not in a good way. Before she regains some measure of her original self, those having to endure her overdone current persona probably be thinking of drawing straws for the priviledge of being the one to take her butt back to the pier and toss her back into the sound/bay/whatever.
That turned a show that generally seems too short into one that seemed too long. They ought to have pared that endless indulgence by a dozen stanzas or more.Originally Posted by Bandy;2243286;
You make a good point (about Thailand). Some tender sensitivities need to fall by the wayside at times involving widescale casualties. One reason I'd have preferred Alex had held the pics of the dead in ready but umposted reserve is kin to my thought with the pregnant womans husband. Having to request to look at the pictures of the dead would have steeled them to the idea that perhaps their loved one was prior to having it confirmed. Some people don't believe there's anyway of mitigating the negativity of discovering a loved one is dead, I'll go along with that on one level but believe that some ways of discovering are worse than others and that having internally prepared oneself for the worst provides a small cushion for what must feel like the ending of a fall down an elevator shaft.Originally Posted by Broadway;2243552;
I knew the moment Addison asked that rhetorical question that Alex would respond as he did, it only surprised that he didn't do so immediately. I wonder whether by waiting it made his statement any more valuable to Addison than if he'd tossed it out right after she'd spoken.
Christina appeared excited enough to me. You've got to bear in mind we are speaking of Christina. It wasn't until both Burke and Christina, control freaks with an emphasis on freak were able to withdraw and set aside the rigid poles up their respective rumps that they were able to demonstrate something approximating unrestrained joy at what had just occurred between them, jumping into each others arms without checking first whether that was on their day planner schedule.Originally Posted by Lois Lane;2243647;
Christina didn't appear to take her time to me in sharing the news with Meredith, there was simply too many things that kept interfering with her ability to do so. She didn't seem reticent to tell the world, she simply had one person she wanted to be the first to share her joy with.
Perhaps its not such of a female thing in general, but it certainly applied to that female Christina. No good comes from a relationship where either partner doesn't pay heed to the paramount desires of the other, whether what they want is understandable or simply something you're going to give in in gifting manner because silly or not the one you love wants it so bad.
Short of hitting her noggin on something, she should have been able to respond to being in the water differently then she had. The water may be cold there, but not, in my estimation to the point of being immediately incapacitating. Even 'polar bear' fools diving in to a hole in the ice are able to get in and out (generally). Cold cold water would have been a shock, sure; but a bracing shock at least initially. One where your bod tells stridently tells you 'Get me the heck out of here'. Instead of appearing to attempt to get out, Meredith looked as if she was experiencing a Calgone relaxation moment.Originally Posted by combatcutie;2243694;
There was only one person I figured could have been attached to the approaching legs, that being Mark. Nice moment, but its going to take alot more similar moments before the mercenary image I have about him transforms into another.Originally Posted by combatcutie;2243709;
