Was I the only one who thought Derek's speech to Meredith was to melt for?
i dunno. i kind of get him. i can see how you can be with someone and just kind of gloss over what isn't working for you... pretend like it's not a big deal.. continue to try and ignore until you can't.
what will really irk me is if there's some weird thing that happens btw. Derek and Lexi. that will be lame, lame, lame. but i think that's an interesting dynamic that she's now on the show. i think her being there will somehow bring meredith back to her dad- maybe he'll forgive her when he sees his other daughter screw up too? i dunno... But i also had a fleeting thought that she looked extremely meredith-like at the bar.
in terms of the whole episode, from a tv- drama standpoint, i thought it was brilliant. for me, it totally did tie up lots from the whole season and set-up well for the fall. I think that there's going to be a lot about alex next season.
oh, and i asked in a previous post, but no one answered- is it just me who thinks its ridiculous that the past 3 seasons= 1 intern year? so not on board with that...
