Shonda tweeted they have some GREAT stuff planned for Greys. Who can translate what great stuff in Shondaland means? I can only come up with dark, twisted and sad storylines to the maximum.I do have high expectations for the premiere, but I am worried to be hugely disappointed.
Back at the beginning of the second half of Season 8 she tweeted that what is coming for CO will be beautiful, adult and painful.It was indeed painful but the complete opposite of beautiful and adult.Acting was beautiful but not the storyline.
It is interesting SR didn´t find the first half of Season 8 painful for CO, especially for Owen. Cristina aborted his child and totally disrespected and mocked him as her husband and the Chief of surgery. Both of them can be filed under a very exact meaning of the word painful.
She also tweeted at that time that it would bring extraordinary growth for both characters which should happen before the finale. This extraordinary growth was probably for Cristina to tell Meredith Owen is her person which is highly questionable. The extraordinary growth for Owen was probably him saying that he is happy(823), the underlying meaning/reference being happy with Cristina and never having any children with her which is just his personal tragedy, not a growth, to love a woman who does not want to have children with you and be happy about it - how can it ever be a growth? It is resignment, giving in, sacrifice.
Can we really talk about extraordinary growth here for both characters?
Oh, and now I remember she also said it will be GREAT for both characters because it will bring this extraordinary growth. ???? I guess I can go back to the beginning of my post.
