It’s out with the old, and in with the new at Seattle Grace … and specifically, the old that we are talking about is the name Seattle Grace itself. On Thursday night’s “Grey’s Anatomy” season 9 episode, we finally had some sort of conclusion to what is the lengthy storyline regarding the plane crash lawsuit and the hospital purchase, and it means that we may now be able to focus on some other things.
So what exactly happened? Well first and foremost, a new board of directors was initiated at the hospital that puts all of the lawsuit victors front and center, and Avery decides to reinstate Owen as the man to run much of the ship. (So much for him quitting.) When it comes to the suggestion for a new name, Avery opted that they label it Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, which certainly makes some sense when you consider everything the characters have been through.
More than anything, this episode was to us all about getting from point A to point B, and everything else just helped serve as a means to an end. We know that there are some interesting relationships that are starting to be shaken up a bit (especially on the Alex front), but do you really think that we are going to see any major moves there until the end of the season? This is the time of year where storylines build rather than explode, and it’s surprising enough that Shonda Rhimes decided to give us something as big as a hospital with a new name.
