Guys, I am so loving this season's Thursday night line up. First Grey's, then Scandal and Parenthood as the grand finale. What could be better?
I didn't think it would make a difference to me that Grey's is on at 8:00pm this year (instead of 9:00pm), but it so does. I have way more energy when I'm watching and I notice a lot more than I used to while struggling to keep me eyes open. #OldLady
In last night's episode, Maggie's voice was the narrator instead of Meredith's. Once or so a season Grey's will switch up the narrator and it always catches me off guard.
The theme of this week's episode was life as a giant puzzle. Maggie was on a quest to find the final piece of her Seattle Grace puzzle. So cliche!
When having an inner monologue about her challenging relationship with Meredith, Maggie thinks, "People are a harder puzzle. There's never one right answer. And you never have all of the information."
As Maggie tries to assert herself in her new role she explains to Jo that sometimes she just has to, "Bring the thunder" to get people to take her seriously. Ha! She says to Jo, "If you don't do this, you should. You're really pretty."
Later on, Maggie meets Derek and Zola, who are having lunch with Meredith. Is it just me or did Zola get huge?!
After a fight over a patient, Maggie tries to pull Meredith aside but their conversation is interrupted by a singing telegram sent by Maggie's parents. I was hiding behind my couch pillow. Humiliating!
Maggie tries to talk to Amelia (Shepard) about her struggles and Amelia says, "Meredith is hard to get to know, but she's worth knowing. Really."
I think it was probably that advice that gave Maggie the courage to tell Meredith that Ellis is her mother too. However, when she did, Meredith replied with this harsh set of questions, "What do you want? What are you after here? You're five years younger than me. If my mother were pregnant, I would have known. You're wrong or you're lying. Stay away from me." Ouch.
In previews for next week, Meredith confides in Alex about Maggie's news and tries to disprove her connection to Ellis.
I don't know about you, but I feel like Shonda and team are trying to get us to root for a character we don't even know yet. It's hard to care about her and cheer for her when she's only been around for two episodes. Even if she did make a discovery Yang couldn't.
How are you liking the Maggie story line?
