I haven’t seen one in quite awhile.
The old fashioned, slap-you-in-the-face cliffhanger season finale. Remember when you’d be watching the season finale, you’d be at the edge of your seat…. your stomach would tighten, your pulse quicken…and then, the credits would roll and you’d be left thinking about possibilities until the fall.
We all remember Dallas’ “Who Shot J.R.?”
The West Wing when shots were fired at President Bartlet (Martin Sheen)
When Jim finally kissed Pam in The Office
The Dynasty wedding when the bash was interrupted by terrorists
Who shot Mr. Burns on The Simpsons
When Ross said the wrong name during his wedding on Friends
When Kimberly was going nuts and trying to rig a bomb to blow up Melrose Place
This week, I watched the Brothers & Sisters finale. Yawn.
I have yet to see the How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and American Idol finales as they are on next week.
But, I did watch Grey’s Anatomy.
Talk about taking your insides, repeatedly wringing them out, then just as you are about to hang them out to dry, you get slapped in the face…..and not just a slap…… a frickin’ walloping smackdown!
I sat there…with my mouth wide open, jaw on the floor, kleenex in hand, sobbing as the credits rolled wondering what the hell just hit me.
Wow. I miss those kinds of cliffhangers…
So, I will spend my summer wondering what the heck hit me, where Izzy is going? What did that look mean? Where was Denny? Did she understand why George was there with her? Where will George go? WHAT THE HELL WILL GREY’S LOOK LIKE WITHOUT THOSE TWO? They are my favorite characters…and what will that mean for everyone else on Grey’s? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Did you say it?
I love you
I don’t ever want to live without you
You changed my life
Did you say it?
Make a plan
Set a goal
Work toward it
But every now and then
Drink it in
Cause this is it
It might all be gone tomorrow.
Maybe I should have titled this post, “Did you say it…” 😉
