I agree as well; once they killed Lexie I was just angry. She was a favorite of mine. I wanted her to get her happy ending. I know life isn't all about that, but she deserved it. I am not a huge April or Callie fan and even Owen I can do without, but Lexie? Has anyone heard if she asked to leave the show?
Has anyone heard if she asked to leave the show?
|I was disappointed that it was Lexie, just because there are so many other characters on this show that I simply do not care about (Owen or April for example) so why kill off Lexie (who, to me, is basically one of the originals considering she's been around for a really long time). I don't know what season 9 is going to be like. I'll definitely keep watching the show, but I'm still too sad about Lexie dying |
Also, if this turns out to be a dream, I will DEFINITELY stop watching the show. But I doubt it's a dream. As much as I want it to be one (so that Lexie survives), it would be SO lame and stupid to just do that to the fans!
I thought the episode was a bit anticlimatic, they've definitely had better season finales. I too am pretty sad and dissapointed that Lexie was the one to die. Why not kill Teddy? Kim Raver wasn't coming back next season. I think Chyler Leigh did want to leave the show, which is fine, actors should have lives outside of their work. What is not fine is how they decided to end her story. It could have been written SO much better. Here's what I thought should have been done.
Lexie decides to move to Boston with Meredith and Derek as she realizes that Mark is better suited with Julia. Julia can give him a family andshe can't. Then next season Meredith and Derek decide to move back to Seattle for some reason, but Lexie stays in Boston as she has better job opportunities there. Later on down the road if Eric Dane decides to leave the show, or the show is ending, Mark could finally realize that there's only been one woman out there that he's ever truely been in love with. So Mark decides to leave Seattle and he runs off to the city where his true love is, but they don't tell us where. Then we see him arrive at a hospital and it is revealed to be in Boston. He asks someone to page Dr. Grey, Dr. Lexie Grey. As he is waiting we hear someone say "Mark?", and the actress could have come back for a small cameo, or they could easily just pull a clip of her saying Mark from a previous episode, they've done that before. Then Mark turns around and we either see Chyler Leigh and they kiss, or Mark turns around and has a look of joy and love on his face and boom the episode ends and that is Mark's exit. I think that would have beena better ending to their story, and I would have been COMPLETELY satisfied with that. What do you guy's think?
|I think the main purpose of this episode was to warn the cast that everybody's contracts are up for grabs. Anyone who gets too demanding in negotiations can easily be written out.|
i dunno about that cause i read somewhere that the actress who played Lexie was planning on leaving the show and her and shondra from what i read talked about how her character was to leave all season. so by the way i read it i think her and shondra came up with how to get rid of her.
i'm not saying the actress who played lexie and uh sorry i forget her name right now well i'm not saying the season finale was her idea. i have no idea if it was. but from the way i read it and the way i took it she was maybe involved in how it came to be. HOW involved i have no idea.
but if this is true, i can say that it is nice to have a cast member help with their chracters exit rather than how the rest of the cast that have left the show or at least most of them were handled. just from what i've heard that's all. but to be fair i don't have all the info on why this or that actor left the show. just what's released.
