Grey's Anatomy Review: "White Wedding"
It must be wedding season.
After all, I was lucky enough to attend The Royal Wedding last week via DVR and was also cordially invited to Calzona’s special day in last night’s "White Wedding."
After a season of craziness for Calzona, including breakups, intercontinental separation, Mark Sloan, the awful car accident, and precious Sofia Robbin Sloan Torres (Whew! Say that five times fast!), Grey's Anatomy definitely brought on the wedding bells last night.
Whether you’re a fan of Calzona or not, you’ve got to admit they both looked absolutely gorgeous on their wedding day. Not so surprisingly, there was plenty of tension on the family and wedding front.
Then again, what would you expect from a wedding with two brides and one Mark Sloan?
I liked seeing the dynamic of both Callie’s and Arizona’s parents together. Mr. Torres was slowly accepting their lesbian marriage; The Colonel was not particularly at ease either. Speaking on behalf of all daddies’ girls, it couldn’t possibly be easy for any father to see their daughter grow up regardless of the circumstances.
As for Callie’s mom, she wasn’t on board with what she believed was a pretend wedding.
That’s too bad for her though, because she missed out on her daughter’s beautiful day. I honestly didn’t expect that Callie’s father would return at the end in perfect time for the father-daughter dance. That was certainly a touching moment.
By the way, baby Sofia is absolutely precious! She looks exactly like Callie. I’m not sure how Mrs. Torres could resist holding her. I get that she has her beliefs, but how could she refuse to even look at her granddaughter?
I’m glad that Calzona finally got their happily ever after, but I’ve been patiently waiting for MerDer to get theirs for what seems like much longer.
Moreover, how perfect were the scenes between MerDer and baby Zola? I couldn’t help but gush to see how excited McDreamy was to simply just be holding baby Zola. I still can’t believe that they are finally married and am thrilled that they will be moving forward in hopes of adopting.
I will say that I know better though than to get my hopes up thinking that baby Zola will easily be theirs. In Grey’s Anatomy style, I’m certain that it just won’t be that simple... especially since nothing ever comes easy for MerDer.
They would make a lovely McFamily though. I have always seen both Meredith and Derek as people who would adopt. Just look how many people Meredith has taken into her home, and Derek has the biggest heart of anyone on Grey’s Anatomy.
Everyone definitely stepped it up this week in the race for chief resident. Well, except for Cristina as she spent most of her time apologizing to Teddy.
I’m kind of tired of seeing Cristina “on the sidelines” and think that she and Teddy just need to talk things through. Cristina needs to get back in the OR, but she also needs to be a little more respectful to Teddy.
Alex seemed to be leading the competition though with his orphans from Africa. Alex also has some dirt on Meredith and confronted her about jeopardizing the Alzheimer’s study. I can’t help but wonder if Meredith will admit to her wrongdoing, or if Alex is going to say something. What will this do to MerDer?
While Avery worked closely with Chief Webber, April deservingly received a recommendation from Dr. Stark. I won’t try to obliterate the patients’ names, but every single medical case was heartbreaking this week. For one patient, April’s corn porridge made a good impression on Dr. Stark. Maybe there’s still hope for these two.
Then, there’s Teddy. Dr. Perkins wanted Teddy to come with him to Germany. What about Henry though? After all, he is her husband.
Overall, this was a solid Grey’s Anatomy installment. One thing is for sure – I absolutely loved that this episode was named after Billy Idol’s "White Wedding." Moreover, everyone looked absolutely stunning at the wedding.
What did you think? Were you glad you attended Calzona’s wedding? What do you think will happen with MerDer and baby Zola? Who do you think should be chief resident?
