So, as expected, “Time Warp” didn’t give us much Cristina/Owen. Any, you say? Well, you would be surprised where a hardcore Coconut can find Cristina/Owen loving and sexyness. Proof? A screencap of it, let’s say? Fair enough…
Oh yeah. So. Happened. (credit for screencap / hilarity goes to WeLoveCrowen on Twitter)
So there you have it. Our darling Cristina and Owen have entered the deep, dark world of sexting. I will also point out that Krista Vernoff (executive producer and writer for Grey’s Anatomy) basically said, “hey, why not?” when a fan tweeted her about the fact that Cristina and Owen were sexting during the lecture series. So there you have it!
As for the rest of the episode, I really liked the Richard/Ellis flashback. I really liked Sarah Paulson (young Ellis), but casting award of the year goes to whoever found J. August Richards to play the Chief. Just freakin’ perfect. And the music! Playing “Maneater” (by Hall & Oates) during the introduction of Ellis was just fantastic. Same for “Our Lips Are Sealed” by the GoGos. It all just got me in the old-school mood for the episode. Very cute. I had a huge geeky smile on my face. Also, I can’t believe it had never occurred to me that the fact that they were both seen as outcasts for different reasons (race, gender) would cause them to be close in the first place. Very interesting…and oh my god, little Meredith was SO CUTE. So so so cute. Her little red shoes and big jacket and carrying Anatomy Jane around? Just so adorable and seeing Ellis just push her away to Thatcher just gave you some more insight as to why Meredith was so messed up for so long. And that last scene where we see that Ellis was the one that first got Richard to drink (heavily, I guess, since he mentioned not liking the taste). Very sad…and a scene full of so much implication. While I don’t want this every week, it was cool to see.
I also thought Callie being terrified of the crowd was sweet. It was interesting when juxtaposed with how badass and outgoing she was in her flashback (same goes, in reverse, for Bailey’s). Because of spoilers, I had figured out that there would be a shot of Callie and Alex hooking up. It was odd seeing her right before her Grey’s entrance but she looked EXACTLY the same. Well done them!
Wasn’t a big fan of the Bailey flashback because…while I know it isn’t necessarily a popular standpoint, I just don’t like her. I like her a little more in the first 2 seasons, but in general just not a fan. I won’t get too in depth with it, but I guess it was funny to see that Bailey wasn’t always yelling at people.
Overall, it was sad to have an episode without a major Cristina/Owen scene. But I have faith that we have some good, hot, sexy, and cute stuff coming up–call me crazy! However, I am going to be unable to update this blog for the next 5 weeks. By the looks of things, that will only be two episode (6×16 “Perfect Little Accident” and 6×17 “Push”). I will be back the weekend after 6×18 “Suicide is Painless”, so thank goodness for that. A girl can only last so long without her fix, am I right? Well, thank you for reading…and have a fantastic month to come. Catch you on the flip side! 😉
