Grey's Anatomy 10.12 Review: Standing Up For What You Believe In

Anyone that has yet to watch Thursday night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, entitled ‘Get Up, Stand Up’, now would be a good time to go and do that before proceeding ahead. For this is not a spoiler free blog. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! You’ve been warned.
Being that I watched this episode four days ago and am really late in reviewing it, this will likely be brief. While I am happy that Meredith and Cristina were finally working their shit out and the way they were doing it was quite good, I still believe that Yang’s character is being ruined this season. I feel like the only way they think they can send Cristina’s character off, is for her and Meredith to have grown apart, and that’s just happening quite drastically this season. I mean, Meredith wanted Cristina in the room when she gave birth, and now it’s like they’re so far apart from each other that Yang will want to leave? It just doesn’t make sense, and is poorly written in my opinion.
The best character in this week’s winter finale episode, in my opinion, was definitely Kepner. She’s honestly grown into a character I actually like, when I was adamantly disappointed that she came back after being fired a few seasons ago. It’s strange that her character has grown in such a way that she is no longer intolerable and is quite fun to watch as a supporting character. That is, as long as she’s not with Avery. I really loved these two as best friends, but after they slept together they’ve never been able to get back to that point where I truly enjoy seeing them onscreen together. But, it was rather obvious the entire time at the wedding that Avery was going to stand up, so we’ll see where this goes.
All in all, this was a decent episode and winter finale. It was very beautiful that the hospital staff (that we follow on screen, at least) all wanted to show up to Kepner’s wedding. Also, I’m intrigued by what this whole business with the president calling Shepperd will get into, but it’ll definitely be dangerous waters for him and Meredith. I also really loved watching Ross finally break down, and seeing Kepner have to track all the bridesmaids down when it’s supposed to be her day. So, not a bad episode, I just think this series isn’t pushing for greatness or reasonable writing lately and it makes it only decent and easy to watch.
My rating: 7 out of 10.

Best Lines:
“I was the kid, but I was the dad.” – Karev professes to his father.
“Never be afraid to stand up for yourself. Just be sure you’re right when you do.” – Bailey shares her wisdom with Murphy.

Okay, major apologies for the extreme lateness of this. I have several excuses, but I’ll spare you the details. Anyways, check back shortly for my review of Haven. I’ll try and get to Once Upon A Time and Revenge, but I have an exceedingly early morning (at least for me), so those may not be up until tomorrow.
