Bare with me - I haven’t written a my thoughts/summary for Grey’s in over 10 weeks; I’m rusty.
What I enjoyed most:
Calzona happiness. This whole new start thing is great, even though it doesn’t seem earned. Arizona finally taking initiative for sexy times was much needed. But she still confuses me. Her reaction to the ring didn’t seem like happiness. Perhaps it was initial shock but even when she was calling her Calliope, I got the vibe that she was thinking, “how am I supposed to react” rather than a natural reaction of happiness. That said, I did think she was more genuine with her happiness later on when she
straddled and Callie and showed her who’s boss started the make out session with Callie. I don’t know if hesitation during the ring scene was a conscious choice by Jessica Capshaw to show that Arizona isn’t completely alright or what the deal is, but I am having a hard time understanding Arizona’s thought process throughout this season. Here’s hoping this week’s episode shines much needed some light.
What annoyed me the most:
Everything about Owen. This may be because I’ve always disliked him, but he was on fire for douchiness in this episode. He starts the day in bed with Emma, agreeing to find a place together and at the end of the day, he’s sleeping with Cristina? Who does that?! I don’t care if I get flamed, that is a pig move. Also, for two seasons, he has been all “I want a kid.” Remember all the crap he spouted to Cristina about how it’s unreasonable that she doesn’t want them? Remember his creepy bond with Ethan last season? Emma wants kids! She could have given him everything he wanted Cristina to be but wasn’t. But now he decides that’s not what he wants? Or, was that just a cop out so he wouldn’t have to tell her he cheated? Regardless, it was crap. There are no words to describe him and Cristina sleeping together. I don’t give her a free pass either. I don’t care if she was a drunk, she knew he was getting serious with someone and there was some jealously there. Not cool. Considering the hospital’s no fraternization policy, they better keep it in their pants when they’re at work. Otherwise, he better be the doctor suspended. Because and I quote, “ And all relationships between superiors and subordinates is strictly prohibited.”
Other things I liked/disliked. And there was lots!
I really agree with all of this. As frustrating as it is I am choosing/hoping that Jessica is purposely making those acting choices. Because Arizona’s level of excitement/surprise in receiving ring did not come anywhere close to Callie’s in giving it. Way too subtle and unreadable. Still feels like Arizona is still guarded. Will she fight to right herself and fight for Callie in 10x15. Let’s hope because the end of this season is drawing near.
