The writers of Grey's Anatomy are sadists. There is little other explanation for destroying their audience emotionally with not only the unexpected death of a love interest, but also including a scene where a beloved pet is euthanized. All things considered, I ought not have watched the season finale first thing in the morning.
My seething hatred for Meredith and Dr. McDick aside, last night's episode was by far the best in the series, capped by a softening Alex taking care of a devastated Izzie when no one else knows how to help her. Coupled with Alex's going in to save a baby in another a recent episode, the real hottie of show is rapidly becoming swoon-worthy.
On this morning's GMA, we were given a deleted scene from the finale. In it, Finn and Meredith discuss what to do with an ailing Doc. I wish they had kept it in, as it presents Finn as much less clueless than the audience is led to believe.
