This is episode 5 of season 14 and it is finally here. We had to wait 2 weeks after Amelia’s brain surgery to see how Megan was kidnapped. As a serious Grey’s fan, that was torture. I mean I watch reruns on Lifetime everyday at 4pm EST. So going two weeks without seeing the Grey Sloan gang is awful.
So tonight is a flashback episode. I think every show has done one. That’s not a bad thing. It allows viewers to see what happened before the characters graced our screens. I actually look forward to flashback episodes because they answer a lot of questions I might have about why the character is the way they are or what happened to them. Therefore, I have waited for TGIT since the last episode.
We begin with Owen discussing breaks and cycles. All while in a war zone. The banter between Teddy and Megan show that they are very close. That is until Megan disappeared.
Amelia pulls Owen out of his flashback as Megan is packing up to leave. Already? That doesn’t seem right. She just got in the picture and now she’s going to be in LA. That seems odd. Riggs is there too? So he’s just done with the show? He showed up in a whirlwind causing all kinds of trouble just to leave. I understand that he decided on Megan, but that’s still a little abrupt.
We see Rigg’s first proposal to Megan. Which is interesting because it was a necklace. I wonder if we get to see what happened to the necklace during this episode. So Megan didn’t get the Stat position that she wanted. But it didn’t seem like it was that important, or emotional. We’ve seen just how much Shonda can pull at our heart strings even with the little things.
Back in the present day, Owen jumps in the car with Megan to go with her to LA. A roadtrip. I wonder if he even bothered to tell Amelia. I mean they honestly do not have the best communication. Like at all. They make rash decisions without discussing it with each other. Like when Amelia decided she just wanted to live with Stephanie. That’s not a marriage.
Sibling road trip….. I forsee arguments… or at least thats how they would be in my family.
Megan’s son is heartbreaking. You can tell that he had experienced some real trauma.
So we see why Megan and Riggs were arguing. He cheated, the girl left her necklace and then tried to play it off as an engagement necklace. You sir, are an ass. Like serious ass. I am not sure why she forgave you.
At least we are seeing how compassionate Megan is as a doctor. The Megan, Owen sibling bonding is cute. Until Megan throws all the arguments in Owen’s face. Which is something siblings honestly does. Riggs ignored Megan’s son. You could guess something bad was going to happen. It was just destined. Megan told Riggs he needed his fan. He is a surgeon. How could he not multitask talking on the phone and helping the boy fix his fan. When Riggs showed up, I didn’t like him. Then I started to. Now, I am starting to not like him again. I hope that Megan’s son is okay. If not, Riggs deserves something bad, real bad. I am very disappointed in Riggs.
Also, I have been trolling twitter-verse under the hashtags #TGIT and #GreysAnatomy. A lot of fans our not too thrilled with this episode. I believe one said that they are waiting for the OMG moment.
Finally, Amelia calls. I was wondering if he even told his wife. What do you have there. He didn’t even tell her he was leaving town. They really need to work on their communication. I wonder if they thought about counseling.
Is Riggs really trying to rationalize the reasons the shooter did what he did so that he can justify his mistakes. Are you serious? Dude, you cheated. In the War Zone. You cheated. There’s no justifying that. Ever. Even if you’re not in television world.
So Owen did keep her from promoting. That’s not a very supportive brother. I understand he says he did it because she could have died. But you have to give your siblings a chance. Maybe if she went to that training she wouldn’t have been kidnapped.
I agree with Farouk there are so many choices. I am actually an easy person to please. I literally eat almost the same thing at every fast food joint.
Way to go Teddy. Tell Riggs off. Stand up for her. Tear into him. He deserves it. You shouldn’t cave Teddy. You need to make him feel bad. I would. I wouldn’t say hey people mess up. No. He just said that he cheated because him and Megan were fighting. That is in no way a valid excuse. At all.
Is Megan really trying to kick Owen out of the car on the side of the highway….Miles away from his home. That’s not cool.
Here I am thinking Riggs is the most vile person that has been a staff member of Grey Sloan and it comes out that Megan cheated first?
That poor woman. The chest tube is coming out. That is painful to get in the first time let alone another time. Megan wants to ride back with her patient. Which of course is against protocol. But Megan tells Owen that Nathan cheated and that’s why.
That poor woman isn’t so poor anymore. She’s the shooter. She’s the reason why Megan got kidnapped. Seriously? That’s not cool. We have 8 minutes left and we are just now seeing how Megan got kidnapped. That’s not cool. I usually love flashback episodes but this one hasn’t lived up to what I am use to from Grey’s. My heart strings were not pulled even in the slightest. They should have been. Megan was kidnapped for 10 years. Tortured. It must have been the worst thing for her to deal with, yet the episode didn’t make me feel anything except a little anger towards Riggs.
I don’t know how I feel about Megan and Riggs just yet. Maybe it is a couple that I got to get use to. That is, if they stay on the show. However, Owen and Amelia need to get their marriage together. Honestly. Owen needs a happy relationship at least once. Amelia deserves a happy life. She lost her dad. Her fiance. Her brother. She had a grapefruit size tumor. She has gone thru enough. And now…. they’re divorcing. Making Owen’s second divorce. Not cool. Maybe now he’ll try to go after Teddy. You know the thing he tried to do before finding out about Amelia’s tumor.
This episode was advertised as finding out what happened. However, we don’t see how exactly Megan was kidnapped. We seen her in the helicopter with the other shooter, the woman, but that’s it. Nothing else. What happened in that helicopter.
A message at the end of the episode shows Owen talking to the fans about Veteran’s homelessness. We get to Kevin McKidd’s real accent. Which I could listen to all day everyday. Just saying. How you doin’ Kevin. 🙂
