Wow. Where to start? Last night's two hour season finale was so full of twists, turns and "oh my god moments", my mind is still spinning!
Dr. Burke (Isaiah Washington) has been shot. His injuries, while not life threatening, may affect his ability to perform surgery in the future. He needs Cristina's (Sandra Oh) guidance and support but she's having a hard time coping with his vulnerability and she is unable to step up to the plate and be there for him. It's painful to watch his pleading eyes and see her walk away. We don't gain any insight into her insensitive behavior until she sits down with Dr. Webber. Her conversation with him exemplifies why Cristina is one of the best characters on television right now (and why Cristina Oh deserved her Emmy. She's complex and not always lovable but she's also always real and always likable, for better or worse.
