Grey’s Anatomy: Will Whore For Ratings

*Spoiler Alert for Grey’s Anatomy. Bounce now if you TiVo’d the show but haven’t watched it yet.*

…are you gone yet?

Okay, good.

So…the opening scene in last night’s episode of the (up-to-this-point) fabulous series, Grey’s Anatomy, was of Meredith, Izzie, and Cristina in a steamy lesbian-trifecta soapfest in the shower. And boy, if you didn’t watch it, you should have seen how happy the girls looked in the midst of all that hot action.

Like they’ve been itching to do this to each other all season.

Look how ecstatic Sandra Oh is.

She’s really doing those brand new Golden Globe and SAG awards she just got proud.

Turns out this pulled-outta-their-asses need for wet, upright, group coochie-bumping was a dream sequence, born in the mind of fellow intern George as he was sleeping.

Now I can understand the need to hang on to the strong male audience that tuned in for the Super Bowl, but this was ridiculous. Grey’s has always been a sexy show, but it has never resorted to something as pathetic as girl-on-girl action with characters who have been presented to us as being (up-to-this-point) staunchly heterosexual. It was a cheap way to get guys to linger. Shame on ABC for that bullshit. Shame on the writers for thinking they had to stoop to that level. Shame on everybody, including the show’s creator and showrunner, Shonda Rhimes. I’m a big fan of hers and of how she’s made this an exceptional show with a diverse cast that’s reflective of the real world, despite being a woman of color in a town that tends to pigeonhole both women and people of color. I know there’s pressure in television for big ratings, and I know they threw the show a brontosaurus bone by having it, and not the Housewhores, immediately follow the game. But damn, it sucks when an excellent show goes out like this.

You can tell by the look on Meredith’s Ellen’s Meredith’s face that she realizes what’s happening.

Yup girl…that eerie feeling you’re having in the shower is your soul slipping out of your body. Good luck with that. Next time it’ll be a bukkake scene with you on your knees in front of Alex, George, and some man on a gurney bloated beyond recognition who can still manage to get one mangled hand around his eager boner. It’ll all be for the ratings, of course. And Dr. McDreamy will be standing in the background, watching it all.

Of course, you’ll never get him then. Because once your man sees you go bukkake, he never goes back.

In fact, I’ve decided that Meredith is just moth-to-a-flame fatalistically stupid all around. Last night, out of nowhere, she stuck her hand inside a patient’s thoracic abdominal whateverdafuck open chest cavity in order to keep a bomb (inside his body) from exploding, and that’s the cliffhanger they’ve left us with until next week. I say blow that bitch outta there and rotate Sandra Oh front and center. Meredith is so wacky, neurotic, and downright foolish, it’s no longer cute or fun. She makes Ally McBeal seem sane in comparison…

…and that was one nutty broad. I didn’t think it could get much worse than her.

I guess I was wrong.
