Steve Mostow is only one we've seen from Lexie's class. The last time we saw him was on Season 8's Valentine's Day episode operating with Cristina, Hunt, and Altman.
Christina is not the head of cardio. She can't be. She's not going to jump from 5th year resident to chief cardiothoracic surgeon; she still needs to complete 3 years of cardio fellowship.
Blair: "See this doesn't make sense to me either, but that's what you get when you have writers with ADD."Dan: "..... the writers...."
They can barely string together a coherent 40 minute show. They're seasons can barely hold a storyline together. It's like they don't have the appropriate attention span for their own TV: can you imagine a 90-minute movie?
God no. That movie will tank so hard that any studio that is associated with it will close its doors. Just ask what happened with the studio that was responsible for John Carter.
You know what. Give me something new: Nate as GG. Dan and Nate becoming endgame! Vanessa comes back and gets with Chuck. Serena dies. Blair remain single and independent. Something different than the same old crap of "Will they, Won't they?" Obviously, it's a "will they". So as far as Chair goes, that story is done and told. What else you got GG?
Of course they're endgame: with two people who are as emotionally toxic, broken, and damaged as those two are, how could they not be? Let's not confuse fairy tale endings as some great affirmation of their love: it's an affirmation of their unhealthy codependence of one another. Fine let them be together; they've been reduced to being so incomplete on their own, that their own damage fits one another. It's called coping. On the flip side, itâ€™s also called really really really bad writing. Safran and co. have been responsible for the most haphazard, inconsistent, plot-jumping, rehashed ridiculousness that has boxed them into a corner that is a Chair endgame. I was always a proponent of season 4 Dair and gave me hope that it was a vehicle for change in the upcoming seasons: something new and different, and not the same boring crap that gets recycled. And Safran and co. gave us season 5, so what left is there to continue on with that garbage and recycle season 1 all over again.
Wait a minute... Dan is the reason Serena's life sucks? That is such bull. Serena made her own bed, let her lie in it. And come on, Serena is not this great person: she is utterly utterly flawed and just as self-destructive as everyone else on this show. When she had the opportunity to get with Dan, she toyed with Nate AND Dan for an entire season, only to not choose either one of them to try to be with the professor. Serena always wanted to have her cake and eat it too. She is responsible for her own decisions and her own choices that she made. Her going off the deep end is one elaborate cry for attention.
Karev can't take over peds. He's not qualified to; he's still only a 1st year fellow come this fall and peds surg fellowship is 2 years, then he needs to pass his peds surg boards to become an peds surg attending. And even then, he needs more attending experience to be the chief peds surg attending, so he can't take over. He'll still need someone to teach him.
Best stylistic episode yet!
