So ... Meredith is going to wind up with a guy exactly like her dad, so she can treat him miserably, and then eventually cheat on him, exactly as her mother did.
I don't have inside info. Just saying.
Proof positive that your main character doesn't have to be likable. Just compellingly human. Though, honestly, I'm watching Grey's Anatomy
for the characters and stories that have the least to do with the callow bitch.
Interesting to read the writer's perspective on this, and then the 922 comments
that follow it, some viewers seeing the last two minutes as great tv, and some seeing it as a cheap publicity stunt. (Can it be both?) Interesting to see that the writers agree with how horrible Meredith's decisions are, though they largely seem to forgive her for her faults. (Stockholm Syndrome in the writer's room?)
She definitely continues to be the least likable lead on TV today. Luckily the show has given the rest of the cast more to do in the second season. For instance, in the big post-Super Bowl episode, if not for Meredith's voiceover (and my previous knowledge of the show), I might never have guessed that Meredith was supposed to be more important than the others.
I, personally, dig the show. I think Meredith's character needs to gain about 20 pounds and stop crying, but I actually know a few surgical interns so she doesn't seem too far out of the realm of possibility. What bothers me more is how short the arcs are and that stupid music score that telegraphs every emotional beat before you can process or enjoy it. I don't mind the soundtrack stuff so much (although 5-7 songs per epi seems much), but the score is worse than a laugh track and a flashing neon sign. Also, if you guys didn't cry when Izzy revealed to that pregnant teenager that she had a daughter she gave up for adoption than you have hearts of pitted stone.
