After the heart-shattering Season 5 finale, there was a part of me that thought Shonda would allow me to relax and tend to my wounds.
Nope. Nope. Nope.
Immediately we are introduced to new characters; characters we are not sure if we like, because of the hospital merger. April is uptight and prissy, Jackson is competing with our favourite, most talented Christina, bitchy Reed and Percy is just an ASSHOLE.
I would like to skip to the finale, because all of that drama at the end trumps everything, but okay, we will get there.
Izzie has had a rough life, we know that, and an even rougher time working at this hospital. She makes bad decision, after bad decision and with just the right amount of bad luck too, she FLEES.
I mean, gal, you can’t just leave Alex a note, after everything you two have been through together. Shame on you.
And let us not forget that Alexie happened for a brief moment in time.
There was a bit of drama with Christina Versus Teddy Versus Owen, a weird love triangle, because Owen and Christina loved each other, but they also both loved Teddy and in the end, they chose each other and none of us were surprised.
Richard relapses and Derek ends up being chief for about a minute before he realises it isn’t something he wants. One day, I will write a post about how Derek was more than often, an asshole.
OKAY ENOUGH ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE
As the season was coming to a close, I wondered how it would end. Would it be a Meredith-built-a-candle-house ending, or a we-just-killed-off-one-of-your-favourites ending.
As it turns out, it was a WHAT-THE-HECK-NO-ONE-IS-SAFE ending.
The hospital is under attack by a crazed gunman wanting revenge on Derek and Webber for ‘killing’ his wife.
Reed is dead.
Alex is shot.
Percy is dead.
Owen is shot.
BA – wait, never mind.
April saves herself by telling life stories.
DEREK IS SHOT AND WE ALL THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO DIE.
Oh, you think it’s over? Lol.
Christina then has to operate ON DEREK, WITH A F***ING GUN TO HER HEAD. My girl is skilled AF.
Our sweet Meredith calmly stated while operating that she was having a miscarriage and I didn’t quite know how to accept it.
Damn you, Shonda. Damn you.
