It’s Thanksgiving on Grey’s Anatomy! This year I’m grateful for this show because, well, watch it, here it is, season 18, attempting a really futile task: trying to make Thanksgiving exciting as hell. Thanksgiving isn’t an exciting holiday, okay? There are bulky sweaters and hours spent in the kitchen, followed by shoveling food down your esophagus, then watching your cousin’s husband fall asleep face down in front of your TV. None of this sets the mood for sexy evening getaways. Like, I love pie, but pie is not an exciting dessert. Want an exciting vacation, go see Valentine’s Day or Flag Day. It’s an exciting vacation. Thanksgiving is all about comfort, not sex. Well, unless you’re Meredith Gray and trapped in snowy Minnesota with your sexy boyfriend, then Thanksgiving is definitely all about sex.

After light kissing last week, Meredith and Nick have taken the “give rides to / from airport” step in their relationship. It’s a great scene! Meredith rushes to Seattle to get home in time for Thanksgiving with her kids, and Nick heads to her secluded cabin to spend the day in solitude thinking about other ways to be so lovely it hurts. physically. Just as he walks away in the snow, Meredith receives a notification regarding her flight – she isn’t going home anytime soon. She returns to her hotel and after worrying about being a bad mom like Ellis for a few minutes, puts on a plush dress and hops on the phone with her boyfriend. The roads are bad and Nick has a two hour drive, so he asks her to keep him company. They talk about a lot of things: how her Thanksgiving was ruined because of her sister, how perfect and lovely her cabin is, fingers cut in bowls of sauce. One way or another, it’s all gone. And then there’s a knock on Meredith’s door, and Nick is standing there. “Did you turn around?” ” she asks. “Yes, I turned around. Meredith is experiencing some kind of Minnesota romantic comedy fantasy as everyone in Seattle is in pain, and I think that’s fine with me.

Meredith and Nick continue their conversation about Thanksgiving room service, and it only gets deeper and more exciting. They talk a bit about how their hospital stay has changed them. Nick said when he got out that his only priorities were his niece Charlotte and surgery. Meredith clocks that were, alluding to the fact that he may have other new Seattle-type priorities. “Priorities can change,” he tells her before they start to kiss and finally take things to the next level. By that I mean the bed, of course. What a satisfying little slow-burning romance we have here. Nick then talks about going to the cabin after the snow clears, and Meredith doesn’t hesitate to say yes. Has Meredith ever looked as happy or at peace in those post-Derek years as she does now? I mean, things on Grey’s Anatomy can only be so romantic and good and light for such a long time until there is pain and suffering, but for now, let’s just be thankful for Thanksgiving sex.

Now in Seattle things are quite different. Of course, Thanksgiving Horniness ™ has also found its way to the West Coast (I’m looking at you, terrible decisions made by Amelia and Link), but most of the time things are very sad there, and it turns out to be. past. Let’s start with Megan and Farouk. It’s been three weeks since Farouk’s heart surgery, and the kid looks pretty good. He’s still in the hospital, but the end is in sight. For Thanksgiving, Megan and Teddy are going out with Farouk, and they even have an argument with Cormac for him to play a bit. Monopoly with them. Even Farouk can see that Megan and Cormac are great in each other. Alas, there is no time for Thanksgiving Horniness ™ here. Just as Megan tells her sister-in-law that she has to stand up to Ms. Hunt, who always seems to have a problem with Leo wearing dresses, Farouk codes. He suffers from heart failure. Teddy performs compressions for 30 minutes when Cormac is running and can tell it isn’t working. It’s scary, but for Farouk to have a chance of surviving he needs to be put on ECMO until they can find a heart transplant. It’s just like, You are his aunt and you are his mother and I AM HIS DOCTOR, and yet no one distinguishes it yet. Not even a nurse! It’s quite devastating, and although I can’t imagine Grey’s kill this kid, it’s gonna be a round wait for this transplant.

As all of this happens to his family, Owen has his own sad story this week. As he is about to go home with his kids and mother for Thanksgiving, Noah, our vet with pulmonary fibrosis, is brought in: he collapsed at work and he’s not doing well. It is clearly the beginning of the end. He’s upset that he’s made life so difficult for his wife and son Danny, so he asks Owen to take Danny to lighten things up for at least a few hours. They play video games and eat burgers, but Danny knows exactly what’s going on. His father is going to die. At the end, Noah tells Owen he’s tired of the pain, his and his family’s, and he wants to know when this is all over. When Owen tells him “soon” all he wants is to go home. So Owen sends Noah home to die as comfortably as he can.

Danny isn’t the only family member battling Noah’s death. His wife Heather is doing her best to make sure everything is going well for everyone. Bailey is the one who finds her trying to hide her tears in the hallway. Bailey knows that Heather is trying to be strong, but she tells him that she has the right to crack too. It’s his turn. So she leads her into a room to be alone and let everything out, whatever she has to do. Later, Webber finds Bailey broken down in an empty room: it’s her turn to let out all she feels for little Pru Miller.

Unfortunately, the catalyst for all of this happened on Station 19, but just know that Ben and Bailey have been taking care of Pru since Dean died, and then Dean’s dad shows up at Thanksgiving dinner at the train station and takes Pru away. He doesn’t care what they say Dean wanted – it’s gonna be a custody fight. Anyway, back in Gray Sloan, Bailey cries. It’s not just about the custody battle, even though Bailey is beside herself thinking about what Pru has lost. She thinks about what Danny is about to lose. And of course, she knows what it all feels like about the loss of her mother a year ago. It’s nice to see Grey’s hasn’t forgotten that Bailey is still in mourning because it’s not something that magically disappears. Webber does his best to comfort her, noting that losing a parent is “a specific kind of pain,” and while he can’t help her get what she wants at the time, all she wants is. ‘she wants is to hold Pru and tell her it’s okay, he can offer her a pie. The pie is heartwarming, after all.

• Schmitt’s mother arrives with a cooler full of Thanksgiving Day food for her son. Nico ends up sitting down with her, and while at the beginning all his discussions about Schmitt and Nico’s marriage and having babies seem to terrify him, at the end of the day Schmitt still finds him there … and he seems to be having a good time? Are Nico and Schmitt going to get married or is someone going to be heartbroken?

• Ashley’s story – a very pregnant and completely overworked woman needs her appendix removed and ends up needing a Caesarean and a hysterectomy as well – is a prime example of a major problem Grey’s seems to have these days. It is very clear that this is a woman who is afraid to ask for help and is drowning in her attempt to be everyone and everything for her family, as is the case with many women. We understand that’s what this story is about! But then, after all, Jo still preaches to the husband unaware of what society does to women and how he shouldn’t wait for his wife to ask for help, he should just do it. Is Jo wrong about all of this? No. Do we need a rhetoric on this? Also no. Trust your audience, Grey’s.

• Link saves Amelia’s solo Thanksgiving (why she’s making a full Thanksgiving meal for four kids, no one knows) and things get tough towards the end. They look at each other. She watches him fall during the family dance party. She tells him that he looks nothing like his parents. He wants to kiss her. She makes it clear that her feelings about marriage and the kids haven’t changed – they’re having sex on the couch anyway. Oh link, link, link. You’re gonna hurt yourself, man.

• Zola reading medicine books at the table ?! I’m impressed and also nervous that this show ends with Zola’s first day in Gray Sloan, which sounds satisfying, but that’s what we call in medical-TV show business “pulling a Rachel Green”. (It shows emergency done, folks.)

Lost in the whirlwind of his 50-point, 10-assists masterpiece on Monday night, Stephen Curry walked around the court chirping “say it” and a bunch of other stuff he couldn’t see because he was chewing. a mouth guard.

Teammate Damion Lee raised the bar in his comments after the Warriors’ fifth straight double-digit victory, a 127-113 win over Atlanta, by saying Curry was already among the NBA’s top 75 players – and could possibly have. -be raised to be on a top 50, 25 or even 10 list.

By Tuesday, it was clear that Curry could pretend he was heading to Mount Rushmore from basketball.

Stats, Curry’s 50-10 game only made him the third in Warriors franchise history with those numbers, joining Rick Barry and Wilt Chamberlain. Curry’s 10th career game with at least 50 points tied him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Only Michael Jordan has had more games of at least 45 points after the age of 32.

Jordan, Abdul-Jabbar, Chamberlain. These are the names, and none of them were improving at 33.

It’s every festival-goer’s worst nightmare. You are standing in a field, surrounded by an endless sea of ​​bodies. The music is blaring and as the energy builds up people crowd closer and closer until you can’t move, arms stuck to your sides, legs precariously balanced. as you try to stand amid the increasing pressure.

That’s what it felt like in the crowd during Travis Scott’s set at the Astroworld Festival in Houston on Friday night. The sold-out event brought together over 50,000 enthusiastic fans at NRG Park in Houston, eight of whom would never come out of this deadly crowd. As soon as Scott posted the time he would take the stage on the large monitors, participants began to walk towards the front of the crowd, squeezing the rows of people closer as the mass of people crowded together. Almost as soon as he picked up the mic, the climb got stronger, pushing fans against the barricade and against each other, until their ribs had no room to dilate, choking them on square. This suffocation is called compressive asphyxia. Images and statements by participants depict people falling to the ground, overwhelmed by the suffocation and physical strain of the crowd. The push was too strong and fans watched in horror as these people were trampled before their eyes.

All the while, some attendees called out the team members in desperation, begging them to stop the show. Videos show their pleas met with apathy and confusion, with overwhelming footage of Scott himself watching the lifeless bodies being executed as he continues to drive up the crowds. ICU nurse Madeline Eskins took to social media to describe her experience that fateful night, writing: “I tried to jump as much as possible for some fresh air. I couldn’t breathe. I just felt it. I knew it was going to happen. “As some fans tried to get help from the team, you can hear others in the footage of the disaster mocking their pleas, dancing on vehicles of emergency and keep pushing and pushing.

When I woke up on Saturday morning to these shocking headlines, I felt a wave of bitterness wash over me. Since local and state restrictions were relaxed, I’ve been fortunate enough to attend a few festivals and shows, looking forward to returning to my pre-pandemic joy of live music. While none of these events resulted in the massive casualties we saw at Astroworld, I felt a distinct change in my festival experience. The crowd felt more hostile, more agitated as people entered, and I left almost any set or show I went to early, blaming pandemic anxiety for my discomfort. But I have had this nagging question in my head since I came back to these events; was it really always like this?

It has been a difficult year and a half for artists and organizers of live events. Festivals have grown into a billion dollar industry, raising millions of dollars after each three day event, and in the age of streaming, touring has become the only profitable business for artists. With all of this revenue lost for over a year, event planners and performers are desperate to bring the live music experience back to life. This can lead to tickets being oversold, room capacity maximized, and a lack of infrastructure needed for the festival, which can be a deadly combination.

As music lovers, many of us also feel desperate to reconnect with our favorite artists live on stage. After a year of limited social interactions, we yearn for the days when we lose ourselves in the ecstasy of a crowd of festival-goers. As vaccinations have greatly reduced the spread of COVID, medically preparing us for a return to normalcy, I wonder if we are psychologically ready to return. In the old days, or at least before the pandemic, we would go to music festivals with largely reasonable expectations: those who wait are rewarded with better views, some A-holes might overtake you, you might not get the best view of the world. stage among thousands of other GA attendees, and it’s more fun when you try not to piss off those around you. After nearly two years without large-scale social contact, we feel hungry and deprived, desperate to make up for lost time. With every festival I’ve been to I’ve felt this tension, like we’re all lining up for our ration of pleasure at the end of a long, cold winter. The crowds are more aggressive, anxiety permeates the festival grounds. Could the tragedy of Astroworld be the culmination of our shared psychological situation as we re-enter the world we once knew?

Much criticism was leveled at festival organizers, team members and Travis Scott himself over the weekend. There are steps the organizers could have taken to strengthen the security infrastructure, and much of the blame for the tragedy definitely falls on their shoulders. But apathetic responses from crew members and Scott on Friday night offer further intriguing glimpses into our post-pandemic lives. As the participants begged a cameraman to send help, we can see his face, confused and uncertain. This man was probably independently hired by the festival, and his sole purpose is to capture every second of the performance. He does not have the power to make the call to mute the music, so he is faced with a choice. He can either risk losing his pay for the weekend or try to help members of the crowd in any way he can, even though, in the midst of the chaos, his actions can always be in vain. When chaos erupts so quickly, we turn to authority for protection, and without clear authority in sight, people shift responsibility. It really is a classic case study in the Bystander effect. What we forget in criticizing these crew members is that many of them have little power in this situation, they don’t know what to do and fear the economic consequences of crying wolf. Even Travis Scott himself was probably expecting the “man in charge” to step in if things got really out of hand.

Crowds in infamous Hillsborough disaster in England

This is not the first time that an event involving a massive crowd has occurred. The infamous Woodstock ’99 revival was a similar disaster, dubbed ‘the day music died’, with high temperatures and inadequate infrastructure stirring crowds until mass violence and huge fires broke out. . In 1989, at Hillsborough Football Stadium in England, a surge in crowds caused by a combination of inadequate space, crowd behavior and faulty architecture killed more than 100 fans. When two crowds collided during the 2015 hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, more than 2,400 people were killed. In the aftermath of each of these disasters, investigators were able to identify strategies to reduce the risk of deadly crowd influxes and deadly events, including appropriate staff training, emergency response systems, and best practices. responsible ticketing and the creation of travel lanes. There is also a certain responsibility on the performers, who need to be aware of the dynamics of a live performance. I fell in love with live music because of its ability to sweep you up in the energy of performance, but this alluring quality makes these events dangerous as well. Travis Scott is known for begging his audiences to “show up,” creating insane energy during his shows that initially put him on the map. With the combination of poor infrastructure, crowd psychology, and the nature of its setting, it looks like a disaster like this was bound to happen. For the future of live music, we must examine the causes of tragedies such as what happened at Astroworld, and determine whether it is an individual’s fault or the convergence of several collective forces. We cannot bear to have another “music dead day”.

Grey’s Anatomy

With a little help from my friends

Season 18

Episode 4

Meredith Gray is not the only one who wants to revolutionize medicine today. Richard Webber is officially back as residency program director at Gray Sloan, and the man has some notes. The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the ongoing physician shortage problem, and knowing that it will only get worse over time, Webber wants them to find ways to adapt. He brings Catherine to the hospital to observe, he calls his two girlfriends Bailey and Meredith to the skills lab where the residents wait, and he introduces the Webber Method. He’ll have residents perform 12 rounds (gallbladder removal) on their own as three assistants – him, Bailey, and Meredith – walk in and out of the operating rooms to be there for the most important parts. complexes of the surgery, and then once that part is cleared, move on to the next operating room and the next lap. It’s not as exciting as that domino kidney transplant surgery orchestrated by Bailey, but what is it, honestly?

Obviously, throwing all residents into the operating room without constant supervision is risky, but Webber believes the need to “work smarter, not harder” is necessary for survival (though terrifying to think of it from the point of view). patient view – I wish my surgeons worked both smarter and harder, okay?). Meredith is very pro at getting residents out of the lab and into the operating room, but Bailey is the one who needs to be convinced. She finds it hard to trust ‘kids with scalpels’, which is a great instinct to have in life, in general, but Meredith reminds her that they’ve all been kids with scalpels once and that these chicks must fly at some point.

The Webber method ends up working pretty well! Schmitt is very good in the OR, and Webber ends up adding a 13th operation just for fun (and learning purposes, I guess). There’s a little catch: Helm ends up cutting an artery because this woman can’t get any sort of victory on this show, and Bailey arrives, knocks Helm back and saves the day. The patient ends up doing well, and Helm did what she was supposed to do, which was to call for help, so really, it was all successful. Additionally, Bailey was able to give Helm a little heart-to-heart teaching moment later on feeling that fear and horror of making a mistake because she will remember it and it will make her a better surgeon. . Webber is really killing him these days; may he and Catherine celebrate with more hot and hot sex.

Speaking of revolutionizing medicine, Addison is still here! Unfortunately, things don’t go as well for her as they did with the Webber method. His uterus transplant patient, Tovah, has started having seizures and Addison doesn’t know why. She panics and asks for help from Amelia Shepherd. This story is less about Tovah and more about Addison and Amelia who are there for each other, which, very good. See, Addison needs Tovah to be a success, not just so that she can get this transplant, get published, and win awards, although that’s good, but it’s personal to Addison too. Things got bleak for her during the pandemic. She thought of leaving her husband; she could no longer support her child after a while; she hated being at home; and, she told Amelia, there were times the thought of falling asleep and not waking up comforted her. Helping Tovah achieve her dream of having her late husband’s child is what saved her. So she can’t lose it now, and if possible, she wants to save Tovah without removing the uterus she just transplanted.

All of Addison’s garbage comes in because she needs to be distracted from Tovah’s state – she ends up doing well; they discover that her anti-rejection drugs are the root of the seizures, and she will have to be closely watched – and Addison chooses to get to the bottom of Amelia and Link’s breakup. Amelia explains several things we somehow already knew: that going through the pandemic as a new mom and drug addict was awful and that she doesn’t want to get married or have more children. She succinctly sums up her feelings about the breakup: “I hated the life he loved,” she tells Addison. While it might crush Link’s already broken heart, maybe she should be having this conversation WITH LINK. Explain her feelings and decision to her the same way she did to Addison. So maybe we can all get out of this mess forever and ever, amen.

Meanwhile, Owen makes a mess of his veteran / burner situation. Noah introduces him to Roy, another vet who is like a father to him. Roy is leading the charge of taking the VA in regards to the health and safety of soldiers when it comes to exposing them to fire pits. He, like Noah, has pulmonary fibrosis from exposure, but it is much more advanced. It doesn’t take long for Roy to find himself in Gray Sloan. It turns out he has lung cancer and, together with his pulmonary fibrosis, this makes treatment difficult. They opt for risky surgery to remove the lump on his lung. I mean is Grey’s Anatomy, so around the time his fellow vets drive him to surgery and tell them they have his sixes, you know Roy is crazy. The saddest part of this whole story, however, is just before it sinks, Roy admits he’s the one who gave the order to start the fire pit on his base. It’s his fault so many of his soldiers are sick, and that’s what fuels his desire to lead this fight in DC. But Roy ends up dying after the surgery, and Noah blames Owen for his involvement.

Owen decides to get rid of this terrible day by asking Cormac to have a beer with him at Joe’s so he can get back on his feet before going home with his family. That wouldn’t be noticeable at all, except for the fact that Cormac just spent all day with Megan Hunt, diagnosing her son Farouk with heart disease that will require surgery. Megan wants to keep this between them for now until she’s ready to tell Owen. So, that could be a clunky bar lock! And, like, I know I’m supposed to worry about Farouk, but I have to believe he’ll be okay eventually, and right now all I really care about here is when the heck are Megan and Cormac who are going to do already?

• Included between Grey’s and You, are we currently living in the Scott Speedman – growth? Because as pure and hard Congratulated fan, even though I’m #TeamNoel forever and ever, I feel like I’ve been preparing for this day for a really long time and I. am. Ready. Nick Marsh appears at the end of the episode as Meredith arrives in Minnesota and begins her VERY long drive, and even in those few moments he’s very cute and very affectionate and they go out to dinner again. Take it, Gray!

• Jo is struggling with single mom issues, but realizes she’s doing great when she gives birth to another single mom who is afraid to do it on her own. This woman is not alone, and Jo is not alone, and everything is fine, I guess. Jo needs something much more interesting to get involved with ASAP.

• Bailey’s reactions to Catherine and Webber’s sexual innuendos never get old.

• Dang, Nico and her “rock star boyfriend” Schmitt keep the Grey’s Anatomy the connections of the on-call room and the supply closet are perfect and watertight.

• Can we get Maggie Pierce back?

Kate Walsh’s Addison Montgomery returns in season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy. Here’s why the fan-favorite character may be back and why she’s gone.

Kate Walsh is back as Dr Addison Montgomery (formerly Montgomery-Shepherd) in Grey’s Anatomy season 18, but why did the character leave in the first place? Walsh made her debut in the series’ Season 1 finale as a neonatal surgeon and wife of Derek Shepherd. Created by Shonda Rhimes, Grey’s Anatomy debuted on ABC and is one of the longest-running medical dramas in television history. Due to Walsh’s popularity, the star continued to play the main character in Grey’s Anatomy first spin-off, Private practice.

Walsh will reprise his role as Addison Montgomery in a multi-episode arc. However, her story has yet to be revealed. Walsh is gone Grey’s Anatomy in season 3 for his own medical drama, Private practice. There, Addison continued to work as a neonatal surgeon and welcomed the drama brought by the move to Los Angeles. This included a close friendship with Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone), Derek’s sister, who started the spin-off before heading to Grey’s Anatomy. Finally, Walsh decided to leave Private practice, resulting in the show ending with Season 6. Walsh’s last appearance on Grey’s Anatomy was for a Season 8 episode titled “If / Then”. Since then, she has co-starred in three Netflix series: The Umbrella Academy, Emilie in Paris, and 13 reasons why.

Walsh is just one of the familiar faces that Grey’s Anatomy recently brought back. Season 17 saw the return of fan favorite characters such as Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and George O’Malley (TR Knight) as Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo) battled COVID. Kate Burton, who played Meredith’s mother Ellis Gray, also returned in the Season 18 premiere and is apparently booked for several episodes. Undeniably, Addison has a history with Meredith, but the character she has the closest ties to is actually Amelia. When Walsh withdrew from Private practice in 2013, she had said she felt Addison’s journey was over. Still, this has led to an enthralling fan theory (via Reddit), speculating that Addison will return because Amelia’s struggle with drug addiction will be brought back to the forefront in Season 18.


Addison in Grey's Anatomy

During Amelia’s time on Private practice, she struggled against multiple addictions, first alcoholism before switching to pills, and finally heroin. The fan theory is that Amelia rejected Link’s recent marriage proposal because she was going to relapse. It could be a possibility because even though Amelia did not relapse in a recent episode, she has struggled due to the pandemic. This may also be the reason for Addison’s return, as the character was close to his former sister-in-law and shared that bond that went beyond family obligations. Addison could help Amelia get through her relapse and bring her back to sobriety.


Fans have long wondered what Addison was doing in the Grey’s Anatomy universe. Since leaving, Addison has been mentioned once during Season 11, Episode 5, titled “Bend & Break”. The reference occurred during a brief conversation between Amelia and Nicole Herman (Geena Davis) about how Addison valued motherhood. It should be noted that this was the first mention of Addison since Grey’s Anatomy season 8, and it’s linked to Amelia suggesting the couple keep in touch and still have a close relationship. Addison hasn’t been mentioned on the show since, and her absence was particularly felt with Derek’s death, and even then her reason for returning to Seattle was Amelia.


While it remains to be seen why Addison decided to return to the halls of Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital, her relationship with Amelia is one of the oldest relationships in Grey’s Anatomy story that spans the original show and spin-off. The relationship between the two women is strong, and if anyone can help Amelia through a relapse in Grey’s Anatomy, it’s Addison.

Grey’s Anatomy Actress Ellen Pompeo has spoken of a heated argument she had with Denzel Washington on the set of the series.

Pompeo, who has appeared on the show since its inception in 2005, recalled the disagreement on his podcast Tell me with Ellen Pompeo.

The episode in question, The sound of silence, took place in the series’ 12th season, with the Oscar-winning actor stepping in to make a one-of-a-kind piece. The dispute arose after Washington took issue with Pompeo improvising a line of dialogue in a particularly moving scene.

“Look at me when you apologize – look at me!” Pompeo asked his male co-star.

“It wasn’t in the dialogue and Denzel laughed at me,” she recalls. She went on to say that Washington immediately intervened and said, “I’m the manager. Don’t tell him what to do.

Pompeo – who on the podcast said the actor “doesn’t know anything about running television” – hit back.

“I was like, ‘Look, motherfucker, this is my show. This is my set. Who are you telling? You barely know where the bathroom is, ”she said.

The star concluded that the argument boils down to the fact that both parties are performers. “We didn’t go through it without a fight, but they are actors for you.”

A first trailer for the next Washington film Macbeth’s tragedy was recently released.

The reinvention of the Shakespeare classic, which stars Oscar-winner Frances McDormand, marks the first time Joel Coen has made a film without his brother and frequent collaborator Ethan.
