I thank God for Stacy McKee everyday.
YES! No one writes Calzona better than Stacy (William Harper also a favorite).
Earlier hour, Calzona working through their crap, the Harper/McKee regime… I am SO READY for this season! :) :) :) :)
Whew! That is teeing up for a much better start to season 11 right there! So happy!
She wrote their painful 9x24 fight while I don’t expect anything like that here it would be nice if some of the words spoken there were not treated as if they never happened. Particularly the “you didn’t lose anything. I did. I did.” That was one of the biggest lies spoken but if they attach it now (in ret con) back to the miscarriage and now we have Callie’s inability to carry a child - I could see how we could revisit that conversation. I am not sure how far they will get in 1 episode though.
While I don’t expect anything to be drudged up in the first episode, I do anticipate the exploration of the 9x24 fight at some point. That’s the biggest wound of all - IMO. The underlying issue for every one of their “band aids” has been their own insecurities, and if you pick a part that moment, it is really what brings everything to a head. Arizona’s words and actions - a culmination of her fears and physical/emotional wounds - have ripped open old wounds for Callie, and now they are forced deal with it.
And I’m excited (though cautiously optimistic) because if done right, it will be amazing.Key word being Cautiously Optimistic! :-)
Basically what all you guys are saying is that we can relax because Stacy can handle Calzona with care. She’s the best writer for them and I, for one, am excited that she wrote the premiere. Start the season off with a bang, right? :)I say keep the expectations in check. Remember it’s Meredith’s Season. So idk how much of Calzona’s issues we will really see play out. Versus it happening in OffScreenVille. You know….Cautiously Optimistic!
music to my ears :)
