Grey's Anatomy Finale: Are You Kidding?!

So...that happened.

If you haven't watched tonight's Grey's Anatomy yet, well, we understand. There's a lot of really good TV on Thursdays, especially during sweeps. But if you have watched and you want to discuss the fifth-season finale, get in here...

Seriously!?

After all that—after the past year of offscreen and onscreen drama regarding the future of Katherine Heigl/Izzie Stevens and T.R. Knight/George O'Malley, two actors and characters in which we all are deeply invested one way or another—the fifth season of Grey's Anatomy ends ambiguously? Really? Seriously?

To recap the key points:

  • Izzie was getting better. George had a purpose. Yay!
  • And then there were some setbacks: Izzie is failing, George is John Doe. OK, that's par for the course. That's TV drama. We're cool.
  • And then it's time to save the day or say goodbye. But wait...what? Elevator? Prom dress? Army dress uniform? Why are they just standing there blinking at each other? WHAT?! We have to wait until September to find out who's staying and who's going?

There should just be two choices at the end there: Life or death. Stay or go. On or off. Standby mode is not acceptable!

In other news, Cristina loves Owen (yay!), Lexie and Mark have cute commitment issues, Bailey has a broken heart, and, oh yeah, Mer and Der were adorably married by Post-it note. That wedding scene was the rare and precious joy we were reminded to cherish by tonight's thoughtful Grey's Anatomy voice-over. Nicely played. Happy Mer is a very likable centerpiece for the show and it's a pleasure to meet her.

Is anyone just exhausted by all this, or did you find the Grey's Anatomy season finale exhilarating?
