Grey's Anatomy Review: Tears, Fears and Goodbye

at . Comments

Welcome back, Grey’s Anatomy fan! After an entirely too long hiatus, the docs from Seattle returned with "Things We Said Today," an episode that brought it all:tears, fear, smiles, and laughter.

Let’s discuss now that I have wiped my eyes enough to see...

Happily Ever After...or For Five Minute Increments. The hour picked up right where “Run, Baby, Run” left off. Bailey went to the hospital instead of her wedding to operate on Adele. Would Ben understand being left at the alter? Of course he would, because he is pretty awesome. The wedding is put on hold until Bailey finishes surgery. 

April and Shane

Can we acknowledge for a minute the heartfelt conversation between these two? They understand and are there for each other and there is nothing us loyal viewers want more than Bailey to be happy. The two shared a beautiful wedding and Chandra Wilson has never looked more gorgeous.

Fake Crying = Hilarious. Jo and Alex bonded over their terrible childhoods and even found a way to have fun with each other. These two practice their crying skills and get silly drunk. It is about time we saw Alex laugh again. It has been entirely too long. These two have the build up for what could be an incredible couple. Let’s hope the writers go there and in a very real way. Karev deserves it.

Not Ready...Arizona and Callie have been off beat since the plane crash - and for a good reason. Arizona’s life has completely changed and she has earned the right to be insecure. Looks like there is no reason to worry. By the end of the hour, this pair was back on solid ground. Thankfully.

Signed, Sealed and Delivered. The divorce papers made their way into the hands of Owen and Cristina. Should they divorce? Should they have ever been married in the first place? Who really knows the answer anymore. These two have been an adventure to watch from the get go. But the writing has been on the wall for quite some time. They box each other in with their marriage.

Without that binding, they seem to do okay. With some tears from both Owen and Yang, (yes, I said Yang!), the papers are signed and their marriage is over. Here come the waterworks.

O. Hunt in Action

A Major Loss. We knew it was coming. It had to be sometime soon. That didn’t mean we wanted it. Adele survived Bailey and Mer’s surgery to be able to wake up and be lucid enough to remember her best friend, her husband. The two shared a sweet moment where he promised not to leave her. Not long after, Webber showed up at Bailey’s wedding. Nothing needed to be uttered. His face said it all and that is when the tears start flowing.

The loss of Adele Webber is huge. Loretta Devine has been playing this role to perfection from the start of the series and she will seriously be missed.  

Side Notes:

  • The weekly case was a lot of fun. Some of those injuries were nasty but paid off watching Stewart get brought into the club. 
  • Jackson and Stephanie hooked up! I’m not jealous of her or anything...
  • What will that do to his situation with April?
  • Derek is recovering from surgery.
  • Not sure which relationship I love more...Webber and Bailey or Webber and Mer.

Only Shonda can make you be so happy and smile and then be in tears within seconds. The episode was up to par of early seasons of the series. The entire Grey's Anatomy cast was awesome and the writing was exactly what we expect from this show.

What did you think of “Things We Said Today?” Are you happy Bailey married Ben? How sad is the loss of Adele? Sound off below and let us know. Check out some sweet lines on the Grey's Anatomy quotes page and don’t forget to check out the Grey’s Anatomy Round Table later in the week.

Until next time, Grey’s fans.

Only Shonda and Grey's can make you smile and cry. Oh how she toys with our emotions.
It was hilarious between April and Shane.
Alex and Jo ~~ not sure
Avery and Stephanie come on, I'm Japril all the way.
The ending part was just so emotionally crippling.
Crowen, 'no more hurting each other' hope they find a way back to each other.


That last scene with Richard and Adele had me in tears. I lost it when I heard My Funny Valentine, knowing that it was their song. Even though Adele wasn't a regular she will be missed. I was so happy Bailey got married. Ben is the best and so understanding. Glad Bailey got a happy ending last night. Though most fans don't like April and Avery together I do but I think he has good chemistry with Stephanie too. I have never been a fan of the idea of putting Alex and Jo together but last night they did seem good together. So I guess a slow build up to these two might be okay. Overall good episode.


I love Jackson and Stephanie, April is pathetic. The Chief at the wedding after Adele's death. Sob.


I used to love this show but ever since Owen and Yang murdered their baby, I have no interest in it. Was that really necessary for the plot, very low class..just my Conservative opinion and so you can figure out how I feel about 2 girls in bed together.......All this "PC" business ruined a good show.


It was a good episode. I hope also that Alex and Jo will get together. Sad about Adele, but knew it was coming. So sorry for the Chief. Glad Mer was there for him. Missed Derek in this episode even if it was for a minute. I think Christina and Owen should move on, again he wants kids and I do not think she will change her mind at all. I am getting annoyed at April. She is running too hot and cold with everyone. And I am glad to see Callie and Arizona happy again. Congrats to Ellen for winning the People's Choice and also did Grey's win for best drama? Congrats to the whole cast and Shonda.


*finally* *sat*


I just love Thursdays. I get to watch Grey's and Scandal :) What more can a girl ask for ;) Mer and Richard were so amazing in silence and shared grief I found myself crying. Bailey getting married to the love of her life had me crying some more #sigh I really enjoyed the episode more than I thought I would but the shocker of the night was the fact that I ginally love all but one of the interns. Can't stand the intern that sit with Richard while he watched Adele's surgery. I hope Alex and Jo make it work as a couple while Avery stays with d doe eyed intern. April was smothered in so much make up she looked like a ghost *smh* She should carry her jesus ramblings to the coolest intern under her wings.


Also, Loretta Devine is the Queen of character actresses. I have loved her in everything I've ever seen her in. Cristina and Owen made me sad. I loved that the biker telling him about being caged in helped him realize what he needed to do. They rushed their marriage. Cristina's head wasn't on straight at the time. They need to back up and enjoy each other and maybe they'll find their way back.


I was sad that Adele died on Bailey's wedding day. At least Bailey doesn't know yet and she won't until she's had some time with Ben. I was going to be mad if she died and prevented Bailey from getting married. I still like Jackson and April together. The intern is going to get hurt. I think Kerev may have actually met his match. Someone who has been through some of the same things he has is the only person who can really understand him. I think he has grown up and might be ready to settle down.


I was laughing and crying at the same time.
only Grey's can do this to me!
