Grey's Anatomy has returned, and nothing has changed.
Of course, a lot of things have changed, and Meredith even says so in an opening monologue displayed on multiple screens that make it look like we're about to watch a sci-fi movie about a lady computer who takes over the world.
But still, it feels like Grey's Anatomy, especially when it comes to the premiere's case of the week. At first, it seemed like two girls had been accidentally hit by a train while trying to take a shortcut to school. Eventually the truth came out: the two girls were in love, and in lieu of one of them being sent to one of those terrible anti-gay camps, they decided to commit suicide by jumping in front of a train.
Of course, the doctors at whatever the hospital is called now immediately jumped into legally inappropriate action, yelling at the mother and even punching her in the face. Meanwhile, the other girl's immigrant father cried over having already lost his wife and possibly now losing his teen daughter. It was all very melodramatic and early Grey's, with nary a hint of all the tragedy that befell everyone last season.
In the end, the dads bonded over how much their daughters clearly loved each other, and mean mom got told by literally everyone, including her husband.
Plus, Bailey was named the new Chief, Jo and Alex were fine, Meredith and Amelia did not get along, Arizona discovered that some people think her fake leg is fake, Owen and Amelia kissed, and Jackson and April continued to make us sad. In other words, it was business as usual for Grey's Anatomy.
After last season's devastating, McDreamy-related heartbreak, we're kind of just fine with that.
