Tuesday is traditionally tease-day at Fancast, but as I got to compiling this week’s column, I was met with a plethora of questions about the two-hour ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ season finale airing this Thursday starting at 9/8c. You’ll still get your “usual” Big Tease tomorrow (MattMtvguy@gmail.com is the place to send your questions), but until then, I prescribe this healthy dose of ‘Grey’s’ scoop!
Did you watch the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season finale yet? What do you think? – COforever via Twitter
One of the perks of my trip to the ‘Lost’ Live concert event in Los Angeles was that a little birdie slipped me the first hour of the ‘Grey’s’ season ender, which is titled ‘Sanctuary.’ And I’ve also heard bits and pieces about what happens in the back half of the finale. Now, remember when the ABC synopsis came out, saying, “Seattle Grace Hospital is hit with a crisis like no other in its history”? That is most definitely true when a gunman with a tremendously itchy trigger finger haunts the hallways. We were also told, “Cristina and Meredith’s surgical skills are put to the ultimate test.” Again, way true. In fact, at the time I joked – joked! – that maybe creepy April was a catalyst in some of this tragedy. Now? I am quite wary of my premonition skills.
Do tell – what crisis will leave Meredith Grey and Yang to be the only surgeons to operate? – EllenPRocks via Twitter
Two things can send a hospital into lockdown mode, effectively cordoning off everyone into little groups: the theft of a newborn (Hi, ‘House’!), and… a gunman with a tremendously itchy trigger finger (see above).
Can you say how many regular or recurring characters get shot in the first hour of the ‘Grey’s’ finale? And do you see any sign that the Owen-Cristina-Teddy triangle will finally be resolved? – Kelly
Well damn, one regular and one recurring take a bullet each within the first 10 minutes. Not long after that, I lost count of the shootings. As for the triangle from hell, it is steamrolling in a certain direction by the end of the first hour.
‘Grey’s’ finale scoop please! Is the baby for real? – Megan
As trumpeted in the promo ABC is running – and as shown during the finale’s first moments – yes, Mer’s home pregnancy test does come out positive. Based on the morning sickness she later, um, “exhibits,” I’m confident the results are legit.
Could you give some scoop on Meredith and Derek? – WalaBridget via Twitter
Before mayhem utterly consumes Seattle Grace, they share a damn cute moment in which Mer – aglow with her baby secret – promises her hubby “a lot of dirty sex” later on. And by the sly smirk on her face, you know she meant it.
What’s going on with my favorite couple, Mark and Lexie, in the ‘Grey’s finale? – Denise
Not long ago, I Big Teased that things would “only get messier” for the former lovebirds. Well, no truer – or more literal – words have ever been spoken.
Is there any good Owen in the finale? – Lara
Army vet Dr. Hunt perhaps is a little too good. Brother at one critical juncture flaunts a bit of battlefield bravado, a decision that one of the women in his life isn’t too keen about.
Any chance of a Calzona reconciliation in the finale? – Lauren
The aforementioned lockdown forces the quarreling lovers to spend mucho time together in close confines, effectively exacerbating their feud. As things “heat up” in the second hour, I am hoping-slash-psychically predicting that these two are heading for a reconciliation.
What can you tell me about Mandy Moore’s role in the ‘Grey’s’ finale? – Indira1281
Moore guest-stars a patient suffering from this, that or the other thing; the exact ailment is somewhat immaterial. Her real purpose is to take part in one of the finale’s most electric, edge-of-your-seat sequences.
Tell me your theories about how ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ is gonna end in this season, please. – Iris
Purely spit-balling here: I reckon that former chief Webber is going to take one for the team – for his hospital – in a bid to corral the gunman, and thus die a hero’s death.
