GREY’S ANATOMY “Take the Lead” Review

GREY’S ANATOMY "Take the Lead" Season 8 Episode 3 – This week’s GREY’S ANATOMY had me quite confused. Mainly the Chief Webber storyline is what puzzled me. We know that last week he took the fall for Meredith so that she could get her job back. He told the Board that it was he who tampered with Derek’s trial to help his wife. Bailey was distraught because she thought the Chief was throwing his career away. Yet this week, he is still working at the hospital. The Board did not fire him. They did not even make him resign as Chief. So now he is still doing surgeries, but more like one of the gang. Again. So was Meredith fired because she was only a resident and the Chief not because he was higher up? Now Hunt is Chief and boy does he have his work cut out for him with Bailey. The scene between Bailey and the Chief where he told her to be happy for him and she reluctantly said "I’ll try" and then told him it would take her awhile was the best of the episode.

We are only in the third episode of the season and I find it to be very dark and depressing. There is tension and difficulties everywhere. Derek and Meredith are barely talking and he does not trust her one bit. Somehow they still think staying together is a good idea. Yang and Hunt are awkward with each other although the food poisoning seems to have helped a bit. The residents are all at each other’s throats. It seems that every few minutes or so there are scowls, barks and just general unpleasantness. This used to be a pleasant, and even fun, show. Read More...
