On Thursday night’s new “Grey’s Anatomy,” we saw some rather good news as for the first time really on the entire season, we saw Arizona start to perk up a little bit after realizing that even though she has lost part of her leg, life must somehow still go on for her. It surely cannot be easy, but it is still something that she is learning to deal with on a day-by-day basis.
With that in mind, we still expect there to be plenty of misery and pessimism on her end, and the real question that comes with that moving forward is just how long Callie is going to be able to handle constantly being the force trying to encourage forward movement and optimism. Will this last forever? It doesn’t sound like it, at least based on some of the new comments Sara Ramirez made recently in an interview with The Huffington Post:
“I think because Callie almost lost her own life … there’s something about facing your own mortality that makes you not want to waste any more time on petty things. Or even big things. I think when you’ve almost lost your own life, you don’t really have time to put up with things that don’t feel right, that don’t feel good. So I’m wondering how long Callie is going to keep pushing forward, and pushing down whatever doesn’t feel good, and pushing through it. I’m wondering when that’s going to blow up in her face, because it has to. I’m sorry — nobody’s that understanding and forgiving, over and over again.”
We do feel as though the final scene of this past episode where the two watched TV together is a step in the right direction, but the healing process is still a long one. Really, the biggest challenge for Arizona is going to be how she manages to react to all of the little things in life that she will face again for the first time, since every time she does, there will be yet another reminder of what she is lost and who in some ways is responsible for her now longer having the leg (even if a good bit of her anger is misplaced.
What do you think about Ramirez’s comments?
