It was a long goodbye and Cristina didn’t want to leave and we didn’t want her to either. She’s basically grown up at that hospital. She has so many friends. It’s hard to leave all of that behind. Even for a once and a lifetime opportunity.
We all knew Cristina and Meredith saying goodbye was going to be hard. It’s been a while since we’ve seen them dance it out and I think dancing was the perfect way to say goodbye. Cristina will be missed. Grey’s Anatomy will go on, but I don’t think it will ever be the same.
Meredith and Derek have been good for so long. I think it was time for them to have a bump in the road. I knew Meredith didn’t want to go to D.C. and Cristina knew it too. I don’t know why it took Cristina running to catch her plane to tell Meredith to go after what she wants.
Meredith is right. It is like her mother. Her mother found her father a job and she wants to be the one getting her own jobs. Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have singed contracts, so we knew they would be sticking around, but that doesn’t mean Derek will like the ultimatum he’s being given. I’m not so sure that Derek will pick Meredith over his career.
Bailey was right not to get excited so soon, because it turns out she won’t be on the board after all. Cristina has given her shares to Alex. Cristina use to hate Alex and now she respects him. I think it was a good parting gift. They’ve grown up as doctors together and they are all going off and beginning their long career.
Richard always wanted a daughter and it looks like he may have one. It doesn’t surprise me that Ellis Grey had a daughter she gave up. I don’t think she ever really wanted to have Meredith. Ellis was more concerned with her career. How will Meredith feel learning she has a another sister?
Will Callie and Arizona get a surrogate? I’m not sure why they didn’t think about that before. They could adopt too.
I was wondering where Grey’s Anatomy would go after season 10. I wasn’t sure how much story was left in some of the characters, particularly with Derek and Meredith, but it appears there will be more. The writers throwing in Meredith telling Derek she’s not leaving and a sister she never knew she had will mean there will be lot of stuff to work with next season. Alex getting Cristina’s shares to the hospital and Bailey’s spot on the board is sure to ruffle some feathers. After 10 years there are still more stories to be told and tears to be shed.
Was there any dry eyes with Cristina’s departure?
