Aftermath of the plane crash

lazydays2 Sat 03-Nov-12 12:05:30

Yeah! Thanks for the reminder, series link now set!

treadonthecracks Sat 03-Nov-12 14:02:08

Is it on Sky?

yes sky living wednesday 10pm can't wait!

TheReturnOfBridezilla Sat 03-Nov-12 14:05:48

This is the only tv programme I have ever successfully managed to watch. Looking forward to it!

tribpot Sat 03-Nov-12 16:27:20

PLEASE NO SPOILERS (I thought that was worth saying after the accidental plot reveal on the previous thread).

Just been watching a few of the episodes on Sky Go to get ready. I really, really did not like the plane crash episode. Compared to the absolute drama of the shooting season finale it really was (as Christina said) implausible that the same group of people would find themselves in such a horrible situation.

I did like the 'what if' episode mid-season where Meredith imagined what might have happened, if her mother had not become ill. Loved her and April as shiny-happy-besties. So not how it was meant to be.

I don't like the plane crash storyline.

Marking my place here to see what others make of the first episode as I got spoilered and really want to discuss it!

No definitely no spoilers please!! Tribpot that was one of my favourite episodes too smile Plane crash was implausible but Lexi's death was well done I thought. Love love Sandra Oh.

Greys is my favourite series ever. If I had a thousand hours of spare time I'd watch it all from the beginning again.

Oh, no, don't worry, I won't! I'm just very much looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

I do love Sandra Oh. She's brilliant.

I was a bit sad Lexie had to die - I was kind of liking her and Sloane's storyline and I wish they'd given them more resolution (but perhaps only because I find them both very pretty! grin)

I'd lose boring Derek in a minute - and had a happy moment thinking he might have gone.

I've never been into Greys, but discovered it just over a month ago, and am now up to the new series- had no life while I watched it all! grin I have actually watched the first few episodes online (don't worry, won't spoil it for anyone!) but might try not to watch anymore to get back on our time.

Was very sad Lexie died, am also a big fan of Christina/ Sandra Oh, and Bailey is one of my favourites. Really want Izzie to come back to fix Alex- he's been so broken since she's gone sad

I also think the aircrash was so anti-climatic after the shootings. They were honestly some of my favorite episodes of all the TV shows I've seen, the way they were filmed, and the aircrash seems crap compared to that.

5madthings Sat 03-Nov-12 18:34:54

i love this show!!! cannot wait. i do know what happens but shant say. so excited!!!!

CelstialNavigation Sat 03-Nov-12 18:39:29

Ah but the implausible disaster of the plane crash gave Christina the chance to very accurately dub the hospital "seattle grace mercy death." grin

tribpot Sat 03-Nov-12 18:53:29

Sloane was just looking SO ill in this series sad Why they let him do a shirt-off scene in the 'what if' episode I don't know but I seriously hope the actor has been able to get himself back on track after his 'painkiller addiction' (I'm assuming that's a euphemism but don't really care what for).

Got it on series link....grin

Oh, poor him. I have to say I thought he still looked lovely but if he's ill, I'm glad he's the chance to get sorted out.

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 17:10:03

Tonight is the night!

smokinaces Wed 07-Nov-12 17:15:35

Whoop thank god I saw this as I had no idea. Thank you thank you!!

5madthings Wed 07-Nov-12 17:23:10

Jumps up and down excitedly!!! I have two poorly children however...they had better not disturb my greys anatomy!!

Far too excited about this, just a few short hours left. grin

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 18:24:37

I've got a shedload of work to get done this evening but bugger that, will be watching Grey's.

So very excited!! Do we think it will be an immediate follow on where they're still stranded or a few months later? I'm guessing the latter

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 18:40:26

Let me just say again PLEASE NO SPOILERS. grin (Wild speculation is fine, obviously).

madwomanintheattic Wed 07-Nov-12 18:41:29

<sits on hands as we are months into the series here>
Have fun!

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 18:43:07

Tra-la-la what's that you said, madwomanintheattic? wink

maybe report the thread and ask MN to add NO SPOILERS in the title?

Are you in the show madwoman cos even in america they've only seen four episodes. wink

Has everyone seen the trailer? I was shocked by what the TV reporter said on it

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 07-Nov-12 18:49:49


Can someone please tell me what season this is?


Olivia pretty please can you add no spoilers into the title of this thread please. smile

<offers gin>

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 18:56:44

I have not seen the trailer. But I'm not sure that counts as a spoiler.

link for trailer

oh it wasn't a reporter who said it. confused

madwomanintheattic Wed 07-Nov-12 19:23:47

Four? Is that all? (Going to have to check now as it seems to have been on forever... grin)

If it's really only four they've packed a lot in... I could tell you why it seems to be more, but you might not want to hear it.... grin

madwomanintheattic Wed 07-Nov-12 19:28:10

Ah, they started with a rerun of the crash episode etc back in September. So only just months plural. grin if you squint at the calendar... grin

Have reported thread title - good idea abat grin

Gah am so pleased my Revenge shaped tv hole is being filled.

I so want Owen and Christina back together this season!

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 07-Nov-12 20:21:38

Have changed the title for y'all.
Season 9?!?
I have missed more than I thought. Poor Meredith. Nine seasons of angst.

But then I saw a bit of Ugly Betty the other day and I had no idea it was still going.

<old gimmer>
Happy Viewing all

Gumby Wed 07-Nov-12 20:25:46

Thank god for this thread

Thought it wasn't back til January!

Thanks for amending the title, Ugly Betty is finished you must have seen an old one.

It's not been nine whole seasons of angst for Mer, there was a whole episode dedicated to happy shiny Mer grin

I only knew there had been 4 episodes in the US cos my friend is watching it US pace and i have been very envy

Thanks Olivia grin

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 22:16:27

First break ... what do we think so far?

Gumby Wed 07-Nov-12 22:17:43

I'm sure torries missus name was in credits?

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 22:20:28

This was spoilered in our last thread - I won't say more than that but you can look if you want to grin

Love it grin Love spiky Meredith. Love Christina in sub zero hell. Love Karev back to his old self. Love Bailey. Not sure about new interns yet!

Where's Arizona then?! Clearly not dead if in credits or is she just in credits for flashback scenes.

5madthings Wed 07-Nov-12 22:30:50

Wahhh!! Loving it but sloane sad

And yes what has happened to arizona?

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 22:30:50

She's not been in a flashback yet ... mind you, I think they set them up for a problem with all this flashbacking when Sloan still looks godawful (or at least very old).

5madthings Wed 07-Nov-12 22:37:16


I just had to google what happened to arizona, because i was thinking i'd missed something.

Not saying if i had or hadnt though obviously.

5madthings Wed 07-Nov-12 22:51:20

Sloane sad

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 22:53:17

Where's Addison? Addison would be there.

tribpot Wed 07-Nov-12 22:58:03

God - I was watching it online and the announcer totally cut in over Meredith's closing monologue with some cheery shite about 'we'll be back with Booty Call Bailey this time next week' - PER-LEASE tell me that didn't happen on broadcast telly!

5madthings Wed 07-Nov-12 23:00:21

No that didnt happen on tv.

So.owen went to get april not to see cristina!

MumToTheBoy Wed 07-Nov-12 23:06:36

The voice over lady did cut off the end of the dedication to mcsteamy. Was very very annoying.

smokinaces Thu 08-Nov-12 07:21:34

I loved it cos i love greys. But they could have made more of it. I cried, but not in a greys way. Not like when lexie died. Though sloanes love dedication to lexie made ne blub.

SpanishFly Thu 08-Nov-12 08:06:34

Stupid voiceover woman ruined the end. I'm emailing the channel today to tell them! Genuinely. That happened in a film I watched a few weeks ago. It was crap to be fair, but after 100 minutes I'd like to hear the two closing lines, thanks, Sky.

I fell asleep! I bloody fell asleep after the first ad break!! Damn my 12 week old for making me so sleep deprived I missed Greys shock

Guess what I'll be doing after the school run grin

blizy Thu 08-Nov-12 11:24:40

Oh my, I just watched Greys. I will miss Lexi, she was fab in it. I discovered GA when I was on maternity leave 18 months ago, I love it!
Wtw, sorry but I grin at you falling asleep.

LadyMaryCreepyCrawley Thu 08-Nov-12 11:26:38

Was so sad. sad I missed the end of last season, so missed the plane crash.

FrillyMilly Thu 08-Nov-12 12:25:09

I've just watched. Yes that was very annoying how the voice over lady cut over it and it shrunk to half screen!! I didn't enjoy the plane crash. Wasn't it done in a way to cover off several cast members leaving because some still hasn't signed on to season 9 at that point? Yes I agree Addison would have been there when they where all around Mark. Do we think Christina will stay in Minnesota? How did she get there if she's too afraid to get on a plane? Also who was her boss? I recognised him.

SpanishFly Thu 08-Nov-12 13:52:23

Her boss was Dr mark Craig from st elsewhere. He was awesome, one of my childhood older-man crushes!

tribpot Thu 08-Nov-12 14:15:20

I'm going to write to Sky as well - that was totally off.

Yup, Dr Mark Craig, also the voice of KITT from Knight Rider, fact fans.

cheeseandmushroomghostie Thu 08-Nov-12 17:02:32

Wasn't her boss also bree's first husband from desperate housewives?

Yy he was Rex Van de Camp!

Perky Arizona shock Sloane sad Booty Call Bailey grin Karev isn't leaving smile The return of Kepner hmm

Cannot believe VoiceOver lady ruined mcsteamy's last few moments. Outrage.

FrillyMilly Thu 08-Nov-12 18:28:42

Yes it was Rex Van de Camp!!

I hope Kepner doesn't really return. She does my head in!

cheeseandmushroomghostie Thu 08-Nov-12 18:34:17

Watching karev makes me very very um, needy?! wink he is lush. Sloane was too before he got I'll/addicted older .....

Aaaarrrgghhh - I missed the first episode. Googled to find when it's repeated so I can record it and it says Sky Living HD 9 Nov @ 12.40 am but can't find it on the TV listings!!!

Help! Please!

tribpot Thu 08-Nov-12 20:45:16
SpanishFly Thu 08-Nov-12 21:03:35

There are SEVEN spoilers in the radio times listing!!!

Just watched on catch up. Ohsad

I was lightly confused about the Arizona thing too.

And I hope Kepner does come back. Her and avery were very sweet together last series. I want to do all sorts of unmentionable things to him!

Voice over lady didn't cut off the end on anytime. But I'll sign any letter or petition that's going trib wink

FreddieMercuryforQueen Fri 09-Nov-12 09:20:47

Here you all are! I was so so so pissed off about that stupid VoiceOver woman cutting in on top of Meredith talking and the dedication to Mark. So no Mark, no Lexie, Christina stuck in Mass Gen, unable to fly. Bring back Izzie!

tribpot Fri 09-Nov-12 11:24:46

Izzie coming back would be awesome.

I can see that I need to organise a petition to force Sky to apologise for their crassness!

I love that Mer has got an evil nickname, and Bailey isn't the Nazi any more - not sure I can say more for fear of spoilering (is that a word?). I am very glad this is back - it is one of my favourite series - though I was very cross when they killed off George.

Izzy coming back would be great. And I wonder how long it will be before Christina goes completely tonto on all her perky new colleagues?

FreddieMercuryforQueen Fri 09-Nov-12 13:36:05

I was sad when they killed off George but I don't think I've ever reacted to a bit of television the way I did when he wrote 007 on Merediths hand and she realised it was him. Cried buckets I. Did, proper gulping heaving sobs.

Hahaha at BCB. And medusa is an awesome nickname. I hope Addison pops up soon. I miss her a lot.

SpanishFly Fri 09-Nov-12 18:20:41

Addison is my lady-crush

And mine Spanish grin It's the hair I think.

Yy to bring back Izzy. Though I didn't like the crazy Denny hallucinations before her cancer diagnosis storyline

EmbroideredCloths Fri 09-Nov-12 22:45:30

Just watched this on sky plus. Did anyone else feel disorientated?

I hope Cristina returns to Seattle. And BCB is too funny for words!

Marking my place . . .

EmbroideredCloths Fri 09-Nov-12 22:46:54

Don't think Izzy will come back which is a shame as she was awesome. But Katherine Heigl seems to be firmly into movies now.

I want them to bring Denny back lol. I don't care how, I just want him back.

Id like Preston Burke back in it. I loved his and Cristina's relationship. Not likely though - wasn't he (Isaiah Washington) sacked?

Wolfiefan Fri 09-Nov-12 23:06:53

Ooh was he sacked?
007 made me sob.
Gardeners severed sky cable so only just watched this episode. I was desperate. I needed that!?!

Sparklyoldwhizzbangcatpusswhee Fri 09-Nov-12 23:34:10

I've just caught up with this on Sky Anytime! <<sob>>
I cant believe that happened! sad
I am really peed off though as well! I HATE it when these series' do this, end one season on a cliff hanger, then start the next one somewhere completely different! I've spent months waiting to find out what happened, and I want to know NOW! I don't want to sit around for weeks, trying to fill in the blanks! angry grrrr!

onedev Fri 09-Nov-12 23:49:26

So glad I've found this thread grin. I love Greys Anatomy!

First episode was brill although another who was very cross at the VoiceOver lady at the end!!

Yes Wolfie he made homophobic remarks about the actor that played George O'Malley apparently and publicly 'outed' him. Nasty piece of work by all accounts.

It wasn't just Sky with the silly VoiceOver I'm on Virgin and it did it to!

Wolfiefan Sat 10-Nov-12 08:53:30

Oh no. Like him a LOT less now.

vjg13 Sat 10-Nov-12 10:33:42

I thought it was a really odd start to the series, it felt like I'd missed an episode.

FreddieMercuryforQueen Sat 10-Nov-12 12:36:52

Next weeks episode goes back to the crash. So at least one more episode with Mark in it.

tribpot Sat 10-Nov-12 13:03:37

How weird. So why do it that way round?

madwomanintheattic Sat 10-Nov-12 15:51:30

The whole flashbacks thing will do your head in, I promise. I spent the first few episodes going 'eh? Where are we now? Is this before? After?' grin

I think I've grasped it now.

Because of suspenders!! I was thinking the Arizona situation was something different to what it actually turned out to be. Couldn't create the suspense if we pick up where the left off. I miss Lexie.

madwomanintheattic Sat 10-Nov-12 16:33:59

Yy glaikit, but i think that was v deliberate. grin

Yes, but it had me very confused! I had to check imdb for the finale synopsis to make sure I was remembering right!

Princessishavingababyboo Mon 12-Nov-12 15:42:31

Ooh marking my place for next episode, I love love love this showthough I did make confused faces and actually checked my planner cos I thought I had missed the first episode and had started on the second one. I am also quite pregnant to spent a lot of the episode crying and then wishing for a last minute miracle sadsad

Looking forward to the next one, also loving the Medusa smile

So we're going back to the plane crash tonight. Determined to stay awake this week!!

<hangs head in shame> I may had read the episode synopsises(synopsi?) on imdb! I promise no spoilers though!

And I'll still need to watch for my avery fix! smile <sigh>

Princessishavingababyboo Wed 14-Nov-12 19:12:42

Naughty step for you Glaikit go on, and think about what you have done! Can't wait for tonight's ep!

I am ashamed! I truly am, but I'm a present squeezer, last page reader, and general surprise spoiler. I can't help it, it's an affliction I have had to bear all my life and the Internet just enables me.

3b1g Wed 14-Nov-12 21:36:20

Do any of you watch Private Practice? I've just started Season 5 but I think it corresponds to Season 8 of Grey's so the cross-over episodes won't quite work if I'm watching Season 9 of Grey's at the same time.

onedev Wed 14-Nov-12 21:46:19

I loved Private Practice but they stopped showing it in the UK a couple of seasons back, so v jealous you can watch itgrin.

I have asked for the box set for Christmas grin

3b1g Wed 14-Nov-12 21:51:35

onedev: I had to buy the box set of DVDs, I found it on eBay for £13. I have a friend who is also a P.Practice fan, so we take turns buying each season & then share.

onedev Wed 14-Nov-12 21:54:15

Can I be your friend too grin. I was gutted when they stopped showing it here. Season 5 v season 8 of Grey's won't be too far off as GA must be 2-3 seasons ahead, so hopefully won't be too bad for you. Also don't think there are too many crossover episodes anyway. Enjoy grin

I've got the box set of s4 of private practice waiting to be watched. Yes stupid living have stopped buying the rights to it so it won't be shown here! It's not as good as Grey's but easy to watch.

onedev Wed 14-Nov-12 22:03:35

Agreed, not as good as Grey's, but I loved it anyway & definitely enjoyed watching it with wine & chocolates!

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 22:13:20

I love private practise as well and am pissed it isnt on in the uk anymore.

So are we all watching greys then. This jumping about timewise is frazzling my brain. Mark looked fine tho?! Assuming we will find out how he ended up in the coma and then dead.

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 22:15:36

Ooh can you buy private practise on dvd. I saw it up tobthe accident that killed dell sad what series was that?

3b1g Wed 14-Nov-12 22:32:08

Dell died at the end of S3. Re: Grey's, all this swooping about backwards & forwards in time is making me feel a little seasick.

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 22:33:52

Oh god i am crying like a baby. Mark knows he is dying sad

Going to google series four onwards of private practise, gives me simething to put on my xmas list!

FreddieMercuryforQueen Wed 14-Nov-12 22:34:34

Argh I hadn't finished s3 of PP!

It's no Grey's though.

The Surge sad

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 22:37:57

Oh crap i am sorry freddie

and yes sad at the surge. Its very true tho, dp's father did this just before he died of cancer.

FreddieMercuryforQueen Wed 14-Nov-12 22:47:27

It's ok, if it had been a Grey's spoiler though I would have hunted you down...

3b1g Wed 14-Nov-12 22:50:31

Oops, sorry Freddie.

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 22:54:49

No no greys spoilers.

Oh god this is so sad sad

lazydays2 Wed 14-Nov-12 23:04:36

I never cry at anything except the greys season finally, (and maybe when Danny died!) but no other program on tv makes me cry at all. I'm sure Greys doesn't usually make me cry but I've been in tears after both episodes. Tell me it's unusually sad even for Greys and I'm not just at that age when I'm emotional now please! Not sure I can manage a full season without investing in Kleenex!

5madthings Wed 14-Nov-12 23:06:24

That episode was very sad sad i feel really.miserable and flat now. ffs its only a tv show but wahhh.

onedev Wed 14-Nov-12 23:19:58

Was watching delayed to forward the ad breaks so crying my eyes out right now! Such a good episode when you got your head around the time jumping. Poor Mark didn't get to see Sophia!

I love Grey's!

lazydays2 Thu 15-Nov-12 00:17:16

FFS It's not only a tv show!!!! It's the only tv show!

Not sure why but it's my one temptation!

SpanishFly Thu 22-Nov-12 22:58:36

Did anyone notice Meredith's weird CGI wooden villa?!

LadyMaryChristmas Thu 22-Nov-12 23:00:19

What did Mark die of? confused

SpanishFly Thu 22-Nov-12 23:00:35

The thing with Callie and Arizona is well thought out, cos you can totally see both sides.
CALLED: Bloody hell, I saved your life!!
ARIZONA: You stole my effing leg!! It's all YOUR fault!!

SpanishFly Thu 22-Nov-12 23:01:18

*CALLIE blush

tribpot Thu 22-Nov-12 23:06:05

I did some light, spoiler-resistant googling to see if I could find out, but so far no joy. I seem to remember at the end of the season finale he started having chest pains after Lexie died?

There still seem to be a lot of unanswered questions about the plane crash, but I can't see any further flashback episodes planned.

LadyMaryChristmas Thu 22-Nov-12 23:07:57

Thank you. Poor Mark sad

5madthings Thu 22-Nov-12 23:21:48

yeah they had to do some kind of pressure relieving thing when lost after the plane crash, i think his heart was just too damaged?

this weeks episode was good.

LadyMaryChristmas Thu 22-Nov-12 23:23:12

So he died of a broken heart? {sobs}

tribpot Thu 22-Nov-12 23:35:22

I do love Derek and Meredith's house, even if it is CGIed. What is Mer going to do with Ellis Grey's house? (Btw, does it now seem remotely likely that Ellis Grey would have changed her professional name to that of her husband? In the early 80s??)

I've lost track of why Callie and Arizona aren't in their old apartment opposite Mark's?

The writers seem to be struggling to find something for Bailey to do. As undoubtedly the best actor in the show, this seems unfortunate! Maybe she could do some more directing til they come up with a storyline worth of her.

Has summat happened to Sandra Oh which means Christina has been sent off to Minnesota?

Ooh I like the finally finished (6 years?!) house of MerDer. Bit of a nothing episode this week I thought - though the Callie/Arizona shower scene was incredibly well done. I don't know how Callie hasn't just screamed 'it was lose the leg or your life!' Oh and I loved the Cristina and old doctor scenes.

Think we need some actual medical drama next week though

are the setting yang up with a spin off?

and why would you be annoyed at Jackson changing in front of you? Bailey I am looking at you girl!

tribpot Fri 23-Nov-12 20:47:51

I think Bailey's finding the whole frat house vibe of her lounge rather irritating. Although you might hold off on complaining until after Jackson had got changed.
