Dr. Meredith Grey: I'm still mad at you. And I don't know if I trust you. I wanna trust you but I don't know if I do, so I'm just gonna try. I'm gonna try and trust you because I believe that we can be extraordinary together rather than ordinary apart.

all about love...
16 July 2013 | by (Montréal) – See all my reviews

This finale is a heartbreaking episodes. For multiple reasons. To begin with, Alex was never the caring man we see in this episode. We see him broken by the behavior of Rebecca, even when he learns that she's not pregnant of his baby, he still taking care of her. Feed her, wash her, comfort her. I don't think it's really love, i think he see that like an obligation, a home-duty about the fact she was his patient for a long time. He feels for her, but it's not real love. I think he loves when someone needs him, give him some importance he never have when he was younger with his drunken dad. I love to see him like that, like an human-being, without all this jerkiness and angry behavior.

Then, about the trial of Meredith and Derek. The two young teenagers who love each other so much that they want to make love one time in case they died and have Meredith/Derek lied to the girl's parents to give them that... it's really sweet.

And all the attention of each attending (except Derek) around the cement-boy is hard to see. Bailey is the most important there and we see she never quit to save his life, she's the best they could have for Chief and Richard quit. She never abandons.

The only thing not really interesting is all the story about Lexie/George of stealing resident's document in chief's office... It's not really relevant when all the episode is about saving life and what you could do for love...

Best finale in the 4th first seasons!
