If you’ve been following my weekly musings on Grey’s Anatomy, you are aware of my distaste with Meredith and the way she is handling her self-induced, pseudo love triangle with Riggs and Maggie. This week in “Falling Slowly,” Meredith earned an iota of redemption by cutting off her “relationship” with Riggs. She may not have come clean to Maggie, ending their strange awkwardness, but it was a step. The bottom line is, I like the idea of Meredith and Riggs together. There is the tenderness of their shared loss and an easiness between them. I just really despised the way Meredith handled Maggie’s feelings for Riggs.
Maggie, on the other hand is a complete mess. I had sympathy for her and the uncomfortable situation she had stumbled upon, but that emotion is waning rapidly. She needs to pull herself together. She is acting like a Middle School student with a crush. She’s a strong, capable woman. She needs to start acting like one. Shake it off, girl.
Speaking of shaking it off, Amelia was obsessing about she and Owen not knowing enough about each other. Now that they are married she is convinced that they need to know every detail about the other’s past. It’s not as though this line of thought doesn’t make sense, but you would think that she would have worked this angle while they were dating. Their nuptials were rushed, no falling slowly there. It should not be surprising to Amelia that there will be a plenty of blanks to be filled.
Regardless, Amelia reflecting upon the tragedies she suffered during her Private Practice days and Owen sharing details of his PTSD showed the strength of their relationship. Based on the previews, a pregnancy may be on the horizon. It will be interesting to see how that variable affects their relationship
Another couple who had once hustled to the alter seemed to be working towards reconciliation in “Falling Slowly.” Sleep deprived parents April and Jackson decided cohabitation would be positive for Harriet and themselves. I would love to see them get back together. They suffered their circumstances and now things have settled. Hopefully they will learn from the past and build a stronger future.
Finally, there is seems to be something simmering between Jo and DeLuca. As interested as I am to see if the writers will “go there,” I can’t deny that this coupling would be incredibly bizarre. Can you imagine Karev’s reaction? I guess we will have to wait and see what’s to come.
