Let’s just say that out of the three TGIT shows, Bones closely resembled the fake-turkey Brennan wanted to serve for Thanksgiving, Grey’s Anatomy was the staple heaping pile of stuffing everyone loves, and HTGAWM… well, it’s like that godawful yam/marshmallow casserole that I still can’t wrap my brain around why is has a place on the dinner table and isn’t served as dessert: some people seem to love it; I just have no appetite for the stuff.
Just my luck – I finally pay enough attention to learn Maggie’s hot intern f*ckbuddy’s name (Deluca!) and he almost gets zero lines this whole episode.
Which, of course, was to be expected, as we have bigger fish to fry: Penny’s residency begins this week, and whose service will she be on? Why, Meredith Grey’s, of course.
Well, it doesn’t get more explicit than that, does it? Which one out of our protagonists will be the one to say that? God knows there are plenty of candidates.
We are now four days before the events we keep flash-forwarding to, and at first glance it seems that not only all of Annalise’s students are involved, but they’re split up into opposing teams, with Wes toting a (the?) murder weapon.
But let’s take it from the top:
I guess we’re done with the more cheerful episodes now? Five whole episodes, must be some kind of Shondaland record!
Guess who’s coming to dinner picks up right where we left off last week: Callie and her new girlfriend Penny arrive at Meredith’s, she answers the door… and it’s a shock to the system.
A few minutes into ‘Old Time Rock ‘n Roll‘ we had a pretty good idea the episode was going to be all about sex. We pick up right where we left off last week – with a drunken Maggie taking the hot intern home. This week, she wakes up and has one of the freak outs we’ve grown to expect from her. Can this woman handle anything with poise and calm? As Meredith pointed out later on in the episode, she’s not the first attending to sleep with an intern (cue yet another freak out by Maggie for reminding Meredith of the late Dr. McDreamy).
Wow, things have taken a turn for the strange in Shondaland. Only four weeks into the new season, and already we get more confused with each new episode. By the end of last night’s aptly named ‘Skanks get shanked’ latest instalment of HTGAWM, it looks like just about everyone who knows Annalise Keating has a pretty good motive to kill her. I’d probably count myself as one of those people: despite certain redeeming aspects of her character, I just don’t like her.
Continuing our TGIT recaps, and since I rambled on and on about HTGAWM, I’ll keep Grey’s Anatomy short and sweet.
