Sorry this is late, there was a double episode of Grey’s Anatomy yesterday for the season finale!

(Saying this as a person with Scottish parents) Richard Madden is orange, no Scottish person is ever that tanned! Another very twisty episode, and only one left in the first season, a secret child!

Now thinking of a Grey'a Citadel crossover, what if that awful blond actress that quit early on left to use the Citadel tech and froze or cloned Meredith's mom. Then some crisis and all the core Grey's docs had to go save the world Citadel style?

OK Kane is the mole confirmed. If Nadia's secret was the baby, then Mason's is that he worked for Manticore.

But, this show seems to be working under the assumption that in 2045 or whatever, a single, asskicking woman spy who lives under multiple identities is not using some form of birth control. The political situation in this is pretty opaque, perhaps the Hapsburgs have seized power again and this is a second holy roman empire, no birth control allowed worldwide.

It's hard to shake the feeling that this is an extra-long movie doled out in parts, and would be better at movie length.

what’s impossible so far for me to understand is just what exactly about this show cost 300 million dollars

Presumably all the anti-emetics for the actors forced to sleep-walk through such dross.
