Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Painful to watch, not because its sad, but because everything is just terrible, like the show usually is.

    I've got many gripes with this show, this episode epitomizes each one. None of the relationships make any sense, just when you think someone is about to do something logical concerning their relationship with someone, they go in the opposite direction, prompting me to wonder wtf are they doing.

    As of this episode, Izzie has become completely impossible to respect at all. Meredith has long been past that mark, this episode doesn't really help or hurt her though, shes pretty whiny for such a irrational slutty heroin. The moment of this episode that most bothered me was the supposed climax, where the device actually explodes. Why might it bother me? Well cause its exactly what happened at the end of Lost season 1; much tension is built over explosives, an apparent expert on said explosives finally takes it into his hands, it appears to be in good and knowledgeable hands but then suddenly our expert explosive handler is obliterated, right in front of the show's main protagonist (Jack/Meredith). Pretty much every thing going on in this episode is drawn out needlessly, but thats common in this show. It always takes twice as long for an issue to be resolved whilst at the same time accomplishing half as much as it should.

    I watched House recently and thought it was as if they gave Cox from Scrubs his own show but watered him down (though thats still an ok show), but Grey's is like if on Scrubs the attention was switched to Turk (surgical as opposed to JD's medical perspective) and everything else was merely redressed, and watered down tremendously. Why this show remains so popular is a mystery, its like taking Scrubs, making it twice as long, switched focus to drama from comedy, accomplishing half the character development, taking the same character types but making them less entertaining and more melodramatic (TheTodd/Alex, Cox/Bailey, JD/Meredith).moreless
  • They built up tension in the first episode, only to get rid of all of it by placing the one character who can't die in harms way.

    Okay, here's the thing, I have kind of a love/hate relationship with this show. It's got some characters I really like and it's an okay watch. I won't TiVo it, but if I find it's on I don't mind watching it.

    However, it suffers from one HUGE problem, namely writers that really need to get other jobs. Sure they manage to write good things at times, but the overall quality is far too low. The examples are too many to list, so I'll settle for two for the show in general and two for this episode (which I'm reviewing as one extra-long episode along with part one) in particular.

    For the show in general, well, first of all their main character is probably the biggest Mary Sue on television. Mary Sue characters are generally what you find in fanfics; real professional writers should have the talent and the smarts not to write a character like that. I don't know anyone who likes Meredith even the slightest. I also don't know anyone who refers to her by anything other than Mary Sue Grey. Second of all the show relies far too heavily on medical WOWs. Seriously, the first season of this show had more medical wonders than the first THREE seasons of "House MD" - a show which basic plotline involves people coming to House because no one else can diagnose them. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the medical WOWs every now and then. They provide great storylines when used in moderation. When used in every episode (as this show does) it becomes tedious, annoying and above all it tells us that the writers don't trust their cast of characters and their own writing skills to be able to creat an interesting episode without some amazing medical condition. You shouldn't need to rely on medical WOWs to make a show like this interesting. Just look at "ER", they managed just fine with only a few WOWs here and there.

    Now for this episode in particular there is a ridiculous amount of extra special stuff going on. The main storyline with the bomb in the patient is kind of over the top on its own, but they made it work anyway. I found it to be a great plotline, actually. However when Bailey is in labour at the same time, AND her husband needs brain surgery, AND he's stuck with Sheperd in the OR next door to the bomb... Well it gets a bit ridiculous. My friend joked that it wouldn't have been much more over the top if they had gone all out and had Izzy abducted by aliens at the same time. But the real problem comes in the second half of this two-parter.

    The first half was really, really good in many ways. Despite being over the top, and despite the pointless, just-made-to-draw-viewers-through-the-trailer scene of Mary Sue and Friends in the shower (the pay-off to that scene towards the end was poorly done too; it was so painfully obvious that George only saw them shower her so that they could justify the shower scene earlier) the episode was probably the best so far. They started out with the something's-wrong vibe, which worked really well since it made you edgy from the start. Then they did an excellent job both writing, acting and editing the sequences leading up to when the Code Black is called. They also did a very fine job of keeping everything at a good level with the staff; there was no mass panick scene or anything like that. They made it seem believable, which was quite impressive given how honestly dumb the storyline actually was.

    The problem came when Mary Sue put her hand on the bomb instead of the paramedic. All suspense went right out the window. What in God's name were they thinking with that? What's the point of spending an entire episode building up the tension to then just deflate the whole thing? Gee, I wonder if Mary Sue is in any actual danger? The one thing we know is that she can't die. Everyone else can, but not her, since then it would just be "'s Anatomy". Had it been Christina who held the device it would have been a hundred times more suspenseful, because she can actually die on the show. Now all we got was a cheap-out storyline where everyone knows nothing bad is going to happen as long as our "heroine" is standing there with her hand on the bomb. It was then made even cheaper by having her walk out and be near when the bomb exploded, so we could all worry about her. Which of course nobody did, since we knew she was fine. Though the explosion scene was really well done in every other aspect. I especially loved how they played a soft song in the background, signalling "everything is fine now", and then it just went off. THAT is great storytelling!

    This show has potential, but for crying out loud, replace the writers!

    Though I have to say one thing... I loved having George coach Bailey through the last stage of her labour. It was beautifully done, and it really allowed George to grow as a character. And I almost got a bit weepy when Bailey gave her son the middle name George.

    All in all the first half of this two-parter showed so much potential, and I'm very disappointed that they threw it all away just to elevate Mary Sue once more.moreless
  • The Code Black Situation Starts To Get Out Of Hands, and so the Cheif brings in the Bomb Squad. After Realising what's Happening, Derek tries to Save Meredith when the Surgery Room Explodes.moreless

    I Thought This Episode Was Great. At First I Never Knew What "Code Black" meaned. I Guess This Was An Episode That Really Opened My Eyes To What Can Happen When You Go To Hospital. The Episode Was Really That Fantastic, With All The Worry And Pain. Expecially When Meredith put her hand Into The Man's Body. However, as it Gets To The Bit Where Dr. Bailey's Baby Is Born It Starts To Become Yucky! I Think This Episode Deserves a Superb Score Rating And a Big Thumbs Up From Me. Why? Because It's So Exstatic And Exciting! Keep On Rockin!moreless
  • Best couple of episodes of the series! (so far)

    I'm gonna talk abot 2.16 and 2.17 here!

    i just started to watch Grey's this month (July, 2008) and I'm loving it! Before I start watching, a friend of mine told me about 2.16, so I kinda knew what was going to happen...and also I knew Meredith wasn't going to die because I know there are 4 seasons so far (what would be the point of Grey's Anatomy if Grey was dead?) even though, it was awesome!

    Finally Izzie and Alex!! I'm starting to like Alex again (my feelings about him come and go)! I don't know if they'll work as a couple, Alex is such a jerk!

    When the bomb exploded in the hands of the bomb-squad guy, there was a lack of blood. Dr. Martin talked so much about the pink mist...there should be a piece of someone in Meredith's hair or at least she (or the hall, whatever) could be covered in blood. Not that I like morbid things, I like reality!

    George's dream is a famous scene! I remeber hearing about it somewhere! I think Meredith should hook up with him at some point but without hurting him or leaving McDreamy...well, I don't think that's possible! And Bailey gave his name to the baby!! I thought she would ask him to baptize her son but name works too!

    Cristina and Burke are really getting envolved! They love each other already! She is certainly compassionless but she loves him! Cute

    That last scene, with Meredith and McDreamy...I missed a kiss there!! I was like 'Kiss her, kiss her, kiss her' and not even a hug! I was imagining something like this:

    Meredith: I can't remember our last kiss and bla bla bla

    And than McDreamy gives her the last kiss (no continuations or relapses, just a last kiss).

    Anyway, awesome episode, I hope Grey's Anatomy keep this line!moreless
  • May I just say that Dylan Young, the bomb squad leader, is molten lava HOT?! That's Kyle Chandler in the role from Early Edition, Homefront, and now Friday Night Lights. He totally deserved his Emmy nomination as Guest Star.moreless

    May I just say that Dylan Young, the bomb squad leader, is molten lava HOT?! That's Kyle Chandler in the role from Early Edition, Homefront, and now Friday Night Lights.

    He totally deserved his Emmy nomination as Guest Star.

    Same casting director for Grey's Anatomy (at this time in Grey's Anatomy history), Linda Lowy, is also the casting director for Friday Night Lights. Good eye, Linda Lowy, good eye ... on both shows! She's been Emmy nominated for her talented eye for casting ensemble casts. Kyle Chandler turned out to be outstanding in both roles, showing such versatility in these two diametrically opposed roles.moreless

    • Goof: When George is stitching up the paramedics hand, an ambulance pulls up outside. If the hospital was closed to all trauma, why did an ambulance pull up?

    • Goof: When Cristina is in Derek's O.R. she notices the bomb squad and Meredith in the hallway. Before she leave the room she takes off her operating gown and hands it off to an extra. When she gets outside into the hallway she is still partially wearing it.

  • QUOTES (24)

    • Meredith: I can't! No. I can't. This is crazy. Burke, you gonna go? You go. Both of you should go.
      Burke: Nobody's dying today, Grey.
      Dylan: Meredith I want you to look at me. Look at me. I know this is mad. And I know that I'm this ass who's been yelling at you all day. So you pretend that I'm not. You pretend that I'm someone you like. Whatever you need. But you need to listen to me.

    • (Meredith is about to pull the bomb out)
      Dylan: Meredith.
      Meredith: George and Izzie shouldn't have to move out.
      Dylan: No. You hear me.
      Meredith: You should make sure. Make sure that they, that they get to stay in the house.

    • Derek: You didn't answer my question, Yang.
      Cristina: Sir?
      Derek: How's the girl with the bomb? (Cristina looks conflicted)
      Cristina: It's Meredith. (Derek looks startled) The girl with the bomb is Meredith.

    • George: Dr. Milton shouldn't have left you. He's a coward.
      Hannah: I'm a coward.
      George: No.
      Hannah: I ran away. ... You think you're going to be different. You think you're gonna be the kind of person who stays and does something. (she shakes her head) You know a good man in a storm. I'm a paramedic. I'm supposed to stay and do something. I'm not supposed to run away. I'm not supposed to hide under the stairs cause I left two people to die. I'm supposed to stay and do something. I ran away.

    • Meredith: Let's go over it again.
      Dylan: The device is shaped like a rocket. About 8 inches long. We're going to have everything ready. Dr. Burke's team is going to be in place. My team is going to be in place. And I'm going to ask you to take the hand that you have in Mr. Carlson, wrap it around the device-
      Meredith: -- And pull it out.
      Dylan: Level. Pull it out while keeping it level.
      Meredith: You know I don't like you very much.
      Dylan: I don't like you either.

    • (Alex and Izzie are putting their clothes back on in the linen closet)
      Alex: It's gonna be okay.
      Izzie: You don't know that.
      Alex: It's just what you say.
      Izzie: I know. (she moves to leave)
      Alex: Where you going?
      Izzie: I cant just- I, I gotta do something to help. ... Thank you. For saying that it's going to be okay. Even if it's just what you say.

    • George: Dr. Montgomery-Shepherd just talked to the Chief. They're really worried about you. She's on the phone with Mercy West right now to see if they have any O.R's available.
      Bailey: I need someone to drive me home.
      George: They're talking about doing an emergency C-section.
      Bailey: They can talk all they want. I'm not going to Mercy West. This baby is not coming out. I need a ride! I can't focus enough to drive myself. (her voice cracks) And Tucker ... I need a ride.
      George: You could lose it! You know this!
      Bailey: I told you already. I'm not having this baby until tomorrow.
      George: This baby could die before it's even born!
      Bailey: Can you give me a ride home?!
      George: Dr. Bailey--
      Bailey: Then get out!

    • Addison: Calm down.
      Richard: Calm down? I have an evacuated O.R. A bomb in a body cavity. A missing paramedic! An intern with her hand on the explosive! Two world class surgeons in harm's way! (George walks up behind them) A man on a table who may bleed out at any moment unless we move the bomb from his chest! And my favorite resident in labor who you're now telling me refuses to push! Really, calm down? You really want to say to me calm down?
      Addison: Okay, don't calm down!
      George: Dr. Bailey is scared, sir. It's a day to be scared.
      Addison: She won't let me examine her but from what I can tell her contractions are 40 seconds apart and she's refusing to push. The baby could go into distress and if she doesn't come out of this and soon, then I'm gonna need an O.R to do an emergency C-section.
      Richard: I can't give you an O.R, Addie! I don't have an O.R to give. Can't you convince her to push? Bailey's rational.
      Addison: She's not Bailey right now! She's a woman in labor whose husband is in surgery next to a bomb.
      Richard: So is yours.
      Addison: This about Bailey. I need an O.R.
      Richard: I don't know what to tell you.
      Addison: Look Richard, we have about an hour to change Bailey's mind and then I'm going to need you to get me an O.R. Build me an O.R. Find me a helicopter to fly me to any O.R in the city. Otherwise instead of having a baby, she'll be losing one. (walks away)

    • Meredith (opening voiceover): In hospitals they say you know. You know you're going to die. Some doctors say it's a look patients get in their eyes. Some say there's a scent, a smell of death. Some say there's just some kind of sixth sense, when the great beyond is headed for you, you feel it coming. Whatever it is, it's creepy. Because if you know, what do you do about it? Forget about the fact that you're scared out of your mind. If you knew this was your last day on earth, how would you want to spend it?

    • Dylan: You realize how stupid that was.
      Cristina: It was Mer. Incredibly stupid!
      Meredith (to Cristina): Okay you know when you don't need to be made fun of? Like when you've got your hand inside a body that's got a bomb in it and a stranger is velcroing a flak jacket to your boobs.
      Cristina: Okay.
      Dylan: You've got a sense of irony.
      Meredith: Only when things are really ironic. (she turns to Cristna) ... I had a feeling. (Cristina gives Meredith an 'I cannont believe you said that.' look)

    • Addison: Dr. Bailey I need you to turn on your back. I need you to push.
      Bailey: Leave me alone.
      Addison: Miranda. (to a nurse that is also in there) I can't let her go any longer. I'm gonna go tell Richard that he has to get us an O.R, okay? (Addison moves to leave)
      George: Dr. Bailey, I'm surprised at you. I really thought -- this is not how I thought you would do this.
      Addison: Dr. O'Malley, I don't think that--
      George (ignores Addison and moves to Bailey's bedside): I truly- ... I expected more.
      Addison: George.
      George: You're Dr. Bailey. (she cries a litte) You don't hide from a fight, you don't give up, you strive for greatness. You, Dr. Bailey... you are a doer. And ... I know your husband's not here, and I know there are a lot of things going on here that we have no control over. But this... (he lifts her chin up so he can look directly at her) this, we can do. Okay? (Bailey half nods, crying) Okay.

    • Richard (laying in a hospital bed): That's it I'm getting up.
      Izzie: Sir! You should really wait until we get the blood work back.
      Adele (appears in the doorway): You can talk to me, Dr. Stevens.
      Izzie: Um... um... okay. Your husband should really wait until we get the blood work back for confirmation.
      Richard: Okay, out! Both of you! (Alex and Izzie leave)
      Adele: You're gonna have to body check me to do so.
      Richard: There is a bomb.
      Adele: I heard.

    • (After Derek's surgery, after the whole bomb thing is over)
      Derek: Where is she?
      Richard: You had to be a cowboy.
      Derek (looking around): Wh-Where is she?
      Richard: She's right here.
      Addison (walks quickly up to him and hugs him): Derek. You're okay. Oh, thank God, you're okay. (Derek has his head on Addison's shoulder and looks over at Richard)
      Adele (to Richard): That is not the 'she' he was askin' for.

    • Alex: Well, blood work's back. The Chief has an anxiety attack. (he sighs) Who's gonna tell him?
      Izzie: Um... I gave you sex in the linen closet, you tell him.
      Alex (nods): Fair enough.

    • Burke: You know it was really stupid of you not to evacuate?
      Derek: You too.
      Burke: Yeah, I know.
      Derek: We should consider a change in profession.
      Burke: Yes, we should.
      Derek: Now can you operate and remove the device from the guy?
      Burke: After the bomb squad is through assessing him, I'm going to try.
      Derek: Gotta say I don't wanna be the guy that kills Bailey's husband.
      Burke: And I don't want to be the guy that kills us all.

    • Burke: Time for you to go.
      Cristina: No, I'm staying.
      Burke: There's nothing more you can do here. We've got it covered. (Cristina doesn't move) Cristina this is not another clueless surgery. This ammo can go off at any time and kill everyone in this room. Do you get that? You can not be in here.
      Cristina: Do you think this about surgery--
      Burke (whispers to her): Cristina I can not do this with you in here! I can not think! (Cristina just looks at Meredith)
      Meredith: We'll be fine. It's okay.
      Cristina: You know in the movies, how there's always the hero and then there's the other guy? You know, the guy who sees danger, and then runs in the opposite direction?
      Burke: Yes.
      Cristina: Be the other guy. (Meredith is watching them teary-eyed. Cristina leaves)

    • George (finds Addison sitting alone in the hallway, she looks upset): Dr. Montgomery-Shepherd, what are we gonna do? I mean, about Dr. Bailey. Ca-can we drug her?
      Addison: Against her will?
      George: No. Well... yes. (Addison looks annoyed) Can't we force her? If... uh, declare her temporarily insane?
      Addison (scoffs): You want me to declare Miranda Bailey, Miranda Bailey incompetent? Do you think that will help? Do you think that will make her more inclined, more comfortable giving birth?
      George: I don't know that's why--
      Addison: Do you think I'm not doing everything I can to help her? I mean do you think I'm just out here because I don't know feel a little lazy, just need a little me time?
      George: I'm just asking.
      Addison (yells): Stop asking! Because no matter what you ask the answer is I don't know. I'm doing everything thing I can! Everything I can! Miranda Bailey's husband is in mortal danger. Actual mortal danger! And there's not a lot I can say to comfort her right now because there's not a lot that anybody can say to comfort me! I'm doing my best! Dr. Bailey is doing her best! And I need you to do your best! And I need it to better than standing here asking me the world's most stupidest question! I don't know O'Malley! (George nods, looking a little upset, and walks away)

    • Meredith (to Burke and Dylan who are whispering to each other): Stop it. I'm not a patient.
      Dylan: What?
      Meredith: The two of you are looking at me the way we look at patients. Like I'm going to freak out at any minute. I'm not gonna freak out so whatever it is just tell me straight out.
      Burke: The main oxygen line runs directly under this room.
      Meredith: Okay. (Burke just stares at her) Not okay... Well? I need one of you to tell me what this means, exactly. Because I think I know what it means, but I tend to be glass half empty these days. So, I won't trust what I think it means because what I think it means is that if the bomb were to explode over the oxygen line the whole hospital could blow up. ... And that's just crazy, right?

    • George: Oh, Dr. Bailey, I can see the top of his head, he's got a lotta hair! Oh, he's cute.
      Bailey: O'Malley?
      George: Yeah?
      Bailey: Stop lookin' at my va-jay-jay. (he looks away instantly)
      George: Yes ma'am.

    • Derek: You almost died today.
      Meredith: Yeah. I almost died today. (they look at each other for a bit, he turns to leave) I can't... I can't remember our last kiss. All I could think about was I'm going to die today and I can't remember our last kiss. Which is pathetic, but the last time we were together and happy I want to be able to remember that. And I can't Derek. I can't remember.
      Derek: I'm glad you didn't die today. (goes to leave but turns around) It was a Thursday morning. You were wearing that ratty little Dartmouth t-shirt you look so good in. The one with the hole in the back of the neck. You'd just washed your hair and you smelled like some kind of flower. I was running late for surgery. You said you were gonna see me later and you leaned to me, you put your hand on my chest and you kissed me. Soft. Was quick, kinda like a habit. You know, like we'd do it every day for the rest of our lives. You went back to reading the newspaper and I went to work. That was the last time we kissed.
      Meredith (beat): Lavender. My hair smelled like lavender from my conditioner.
      Derek: Lavender. Huh.

    • (Dylan is with Meredith while they're moving Mr. Carlson to another O.R)
      Cristina: What are you doing?
      Dylan: I thought Dr. Burke told you to leave.
      Meredith: We're moving to an O.R further away from the oxygen line. You know in case we blow up.
      Dylan: I distinctly remember him telling you to leave!
      Cristina: Where is he?
      Meredith: Prepping the O.R.
      Cristina: Then he'll never know, will he.
      Dylan: You stay over there. You stay over there! (he directs Cristina to stand a few feet away in another hallway, she can still see everything) You ready? (Meredith nods and they start wheeling the gurney again)
      Meredith: Tell me something.
      Cristina: What?
      Meredith: Cristina, I have my hand on a bomb. I'm freaking out and, most importantly, I really have to pee. Tell me anything.
      Cristina: He told me he loved me. Last night, he thought I was sleeping, but I heard him say it.
      Meredith: Burke loves you.
      Cristina: Yeah. (to Dylan who is watching her) Mind your own business.
      Meredith: Burke loves you.
      Cristina: Yeah, everybody has problems.
      Meredith: Well, are you gonna say it back?
      Christina: Of course not. He didn't say it to me. He said it to the sleeping me. Reciprocity is not required. Besides, he might blow up.
      Meredith: Excellent point. (the gurney hits something)
      Dylan: All right everybody. Let's keep placing one foot in front of the other. Nice and slow. Alright Meredith we're almost there.
      Meredith: Okay.
      Dylan: We're almost there. Nice and Easy. You ready?
      Meredith: Yeah.
      Dylan: Alright let's go. Nice and slow. (they start moving the gurney again)
      Cristina: You had to say you were going to die today.
      Meredith (shrugs): I told you.

    • Meredith: Is this the strangest thing that's ever happened in your O.R.?
      Burke: I'd have to say that it is.
      Meredith: Good, cause I'm very competitive.
      Burke: All the best surgeons are.

    • Izzie: I laugh at funerals.
      Alex: I don't go to funerals. (Izzie smiles and starts to kiss him) Izzie. Iz. (he looks at her and Izzie pulls away)
      Izzie: I was jealous. I was jealous of Meredith and the surgery and I (pause) I was jealous and now... I was jealous, Alex. (Alex strokes her cheek and then kisses her)

    • George: I felt colors are brighter. Does anyone feel like colors are brighter? My head hurts.
      Alex: It's adrenaline. You have the smell thing, cause I have like this crazy--
      Izzie: Shut up!
      Alex: Are you okay?
      George: Of course she's not okay. How could she possibly be okay? You're insensitive.
      Alex: I'm not insensitive.
      Izzie: Would you two just shut up! Nobody cares if the blue is bluer or if you have super smelling powers. Meredith could die. Any minute she could just die. Actually stop living. Dead. Corpse. (starts giggling) I'm sorry. Sorry. God, I have really inappropriate reactions to this kind of stress. I'm sorry. (she gathers herself) Hold on. Mmm.
      George: Okay?
      Izzie: Yeah.
      Alex: Should we like, should we like do something? Call Meredith's family?
      George: We are Meredith's family. (Izzie starts giggling again)
      Izzie: I'm sorry. (she gets up and leaves still giggling. Alex follows)
      George: We are Meredith's family.
