LOL, no kidding.
I don't see this series lasting beyond another year with the way the stories are going. I used to be glued to the TV while this show was on, now I treat it like any other show on TV....background noise for while I'm doing other things and occasionally stop to watch for a minute or two before carrying on doing whatever I was doing.
I "knew" that the wedding wasn't going to happen. I believe that this is their out to write Preston out of the show because of Isaiah Washington's outburst against TR Knight, earlier this year. And there has been tension on the set because of it ever since. His rehashing it at the Emmy's didn't win him any friends either. I also see at IMDb that he's scheduled to be in a movie that is in pre-production. So Burke is gone.
So far as TR Knight goes, I have no clue what they are doing with his storyline. There have been rumours that he's leaving the show, but now I hear that he isn't. I do know that if you fail your intern exams that there are no second chances to write it. As was stated, he can either walk away or repeat his internship again. It looks to me like they've written the character into a corner. So far as future storylines for "George" go, I still think that he doesn't have any sexual/romantic chemistry with any of the women on the show and that they should write a story where George is struggling with his sexuality and in the end reveals that he's Gay. I've never felt that he had any chemistry with any of the women on the show, so I'm not saying this because he "came out" recently. I've always felt that "George" is Gay but hasn't admitted it to himself.
The Lexi Gray appearance seems weird to me. It's almost like a backup character in the event that Ellen Pompeo decides to leave the show for some reason. The show is called "Gray's Anatomy", and requires a "Gray" to be in it.
Overall a disappointing ending.
