Grey's Anatomy Season Finale, Season 8

Warning: If you can't handle ridiculous discussion and speculation of a fictional TV Show, please stop reading now.

Tonight is the night. The Season 8 Finale of Grey's Anatomy.

Now, I know many previous fans of Grey's have since moved on, feeling like the show jumped the shark when George and Izzy left. Others have continued to be faithful viewers through thick and thin. I believe, though, that Grey's still has a strong and passionate fan base, which keep the writers motivated season after season.

I will be honest: I did not start watching the show until Season 7.  I caught the end of Season 6, where the shooter went rampant through the hospital and many Seattle Grace employees and patients lost their lives.  Starting that Summer, I began to watch syndicated reruns on Lifetime.  Each day, Monday through Friday, I could catch back-to-back episodes of past seasons from 1pm-3pm. Which was perfect, since that was during nap time.  I soon became hooked, and couldn't stand to miss a day. It was not long until I was caught up and ready to start with the current episodes when Season 7 started.  

Sure, Greys has its ups and downs. Some story lines get old, old characters leave, new characters are introduced, and we sometimes just miss the good old days when the residents were just starting as interns. The drama, the scandalousness happening in supply closets, the secrets from the past, the family tension, and the amazing medical situations.  I like the the writers on the show, the chances they take (I may be in the minority, but I give them props for last seasons Musical Episode).  Despite the ups and downs, I'm still in.

And I'm pretty nervous about tonight's finale.

Last week, after our Residents (original interns Meredith, Christina, Alex as well as grafted in Mercy West interns April and Jackson) completed their medical boards, many of the doctors were in flight to help a surgery at another hospital.  We were left at the scene of a plane crash, where our doctors were wounded, fighting for their lives, or completely missing.


It was also released that one of our Seattle Grace doctors would be dying during this finale.  We're not completely sure who boarded the flight, although in the "scenes from next episode," we confirmed Meredith, Lexie, Christina, Mark and Derek were on board.  So, we could speculate up and down about who we lose this season.

Some good news on the horizon: Patrick Dempsey has renewed his contract, so we can assume he won't get the axe.  Ellen Pompeo and Sandra Yang also reportedly renewed their contracts as well. 

So who will we lose?

Will Mark lose Lexie, now that they are close to rekindling their relationship?  Will Alex be taken, now that he has come out on top as a star resident?  Will it be Kepner, who is facing rejections after failing her boards (and dealing with the awkwardness of her one night of steaminess with Avery)?  

How will things change at Seattle Grace - and how will it shape the next 2 seasons?

In a few hours we will know.

Until then, I want to hear your thoughts, speculations, theories and ideas.  Leave a comment here, or join our Grey's Anatomy Discussion Day over on the Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom Facebook Page! 

If you dare, here is a sneak peek of the first 6 minutes of tonight's finale (thanks to Megan for sharing!):
