    S15.E21: Good Shepherd

    I like Linc and Amelia together because the relationship has evolved naturally instead of feeling forced. To me, Jackson and Maggie, and Meredith and DeLuca, seem like forced couples. So do Contacts and HAOG. So did Callie and Penny (ugh). This relationship is believable. At first they get together for sex, and Linc is sweet on Amelia but she doesn't reciprocate. He's confident enough that he isn't too bothered and he continues gently pursuing her. By now, they are close friends. Perhaps the relationship will evolve into romance.

    S15.E20: The Whole Package

    The name Yoda has, for me, become totally connected with the name of a cat I live with. So it was real weird to hear Bailey announce, "You came here looking for Yoda."

    S15.E19: Silent All These Years

    I agree totally. I guess it makes for better TV, but I had a lot of thoughts about this because two years ago one of my best friends was contacted by her son after giving him up for adoption more than 40 years ago. It was an entirely different situation and she actually had always hoped he would find her and get in touch. She had given up long ago though. He had always wanted to find her but was understandably hesitant. He approached her through an intermediary (a social worker, maybe?) and they waited for weeks before actually getting together. In the meantime, she did a lot of reading online about how these meetings tend to go, and was nervous because so many go badly. In this case, their meeting went exceptionally well and they have been in almost daily contact ever since. If only it could always be that way.

    Favourite episode of all time?

    I still occasionally watch the clip of I Was Made for You on YouTube because I like it so much.

    S15.E18: Add It Up

    Or Young & the Restless levels, either. I wouldn't think they'd go there with Alex and Jo just because of how long the couple has been together and also because they actually are married. Although it did cross my mind during the Y&R story that perhaps a couple truly in love in that situation could stay together if they never have kids, if somehow they could get past the ick factor.

    S15.E17: And Dream of Sheep

    I've only ever seen the actor on Nashville, and I don't get any negative vibe from him. I did have to make a mental switch from gay to straight, though.

    S15.E17: And Dream of Sheep

    This episode highlighted how random so much of this show is these days. So many stories seem pointless, like Alex's mom showing up and then nothing important happens. DeLuca's dad shows up and the next thing we know, he's taking off again. I don't understand how he keeps the baby lambs alive when he's traveling? I would really rather see more concentration on characters who have been on the show a long time. The Amelia and Linc pairing was so out of nowhere that I had a hard time believing it, although it makes sense that she'd want some comfort through physical closeness, and Linc probably hasn't been getting any in a while.

    S15.E15: We Didn't Start the Fire

    Leo being brought back to Owen and Amelia seemed to me like a reflection of when Zola was brought back to Meredith, but it didn't feel as true to me. When Meredith opened the door to find Zola and the caseworker, I was in tears. Maybe some viewers expected that would happen, but I thought she was gone. Plus if I remember correctly, that episode had some wrenching events in it, so her return was especially startling. I had a hard time believing the grandparents would give up Leo, although in reading some of your comments here, I find it easier to imagine. They want to devote time to their daughter, and their daughter does not seem interested in Leo. If she wants to give him up for adoption, they will abide by her wishes. (Reminds me of "Mom" in which the teenage daughter decided to let her baby go to adoption.) The about-face just seemed so abrupt, I guess.

    S15.E14: I Want a New Drug

    Heh, I totally forgot that storyline, although I'm always reminded of it when Catherine is called Catherine Fox. The whole thing seems ludicrous and cooked up out of thing air, so I guess I block it from my mind! I do think, especially with his salary, he could do what many people do when wanting to start a homeless shelter . . . get permission from the municipality, and then buy a large, older, low-priced home that needs some work, and hire a contractor to fix it up. Just a possibility.

    S15.E14: I Want a New Drug

    I thought that was seriously inadequate. Jackson could've straight up bought a building and turned it into a homeless shelter. In the meantime, perhaps he could have set this older gentleman up in respite care.

    S15.E12: Girlfriend in a Coma

    I couldn't agree more. I thought that was terrible advice, and it kind of came out of nowhere. Sure, it sounds romantic, but the patient didn't know Meredith at all or what she needs.

    S15.E12: Girlfriend in a Coma

    That yanked me right out of the story. There were all these green leaves! It looked like May or June!

    S15.E11: The Winner Takes It All

    I totally agree. The cast usually seems so bloated and I would guess that most viewers don't have much interest in most of them. I got to thinking later last night that this more streamlined version of the cast works so much better. They could take a push broom and sweep out Glasses, Schumer, all the other interns, HAOG, Linc and even DeLuca. I never thought of any of these people even once during the episode.

    S15.E11: The Winner Takes It All

    I agree with this. It was an emotional moment that probably deserved a bubble episode. Although Thatcher has mostly been AWOL through the entire series, he's also one of the fundamental characters in Meredith's story. This particular part of the story didn't need to be combined with the surgery plot. I actually liked most of this episode. I even liked the dance scene, although it was probably kind of silly . . . but I liked the meta aspect, similar to Sara Ramirez singing "The Story."

    S15.E10: Help, I'm Alive

    I'm baffled as to why an adult wearing glasses is viewed as such a bizarre oddity.
