I hadn't even given this show much thought since the season ended. Now I'm giving even less thought to the new season whenever it starts. Ugh.
This show is going to have to be really REALLY good to get me to watch past the first episode of the new season after all this! For me it depends what Christina's story will be. If I don't like it, I won't have a hard time not watching anymore.
So I got wonder... who else is going to be gone? I get the feeling that this news is pretty recent, and not the doc that's going to necessarily bite it in the woods. So if it's Little Grey and the spoiler person, this limits the possibilities of who survives even more.
No more Little Grey, no more spoiler person. Mer and Der are getting tedious, and unless he dies, the story will be all or mostly about Derek getting function of his hand back and all the angst over that. Can't stand Owen. Bailey's story is kind of up in the air because Ben accepted another job, but I can't make myself care all that much. April went BSC. Avery doesn't have much of a story, never did. Karev? Meh. There's at least one new cast member we know of. Christina has always been the most interesting character to me. She'll make it or break it for me right away.
Click to see Spoiler:People magazine is reporting that he doesn't die and will be given a proper send off.
They made the big announcement this morning on GMA, so it's no longer a secret.
Apparently, it was his decision to leave. Shonda said it took a long time for him to come to his decision.
Methinks Grey's is going to suck next season. Too many characters gone, and too hard to believe that ALL the surgeons who got offers from prestigious hospitals elsewhere are going to turn them down and stay in Seattle.. Maybe this will be the last season. Shonda jumped the shark, IMO, with this plane crash finale. Given the previous season's hospital shooter finale, it's like she had to one-up herself, not to mention how ridiculous it was for no one to report the plane missing in a timely manner and be out there searching for them.
