Sanctuary / Death and All His Friends 6.23 and 24
- A gunman seeks revenge for his wife who died in the hospital. Meredith learns that she is pregnant. The staff is in lockdown while shots are fired. Read the Vitemo recap and review to find out who was killed and what happened on the season finale of ABC's Grey's Anatomy.
In this double episode season finale, the doctor's past mistakes as the husband of a patient arrives to seek revenge for his wife who ordered the hospital not to keep her alive. After losing his malpractice case, Gary Clark, the husband of the deceased, arrives with a jacket full of ammo to take out the people he thinks were responsible --- Derek, Lexie and Webber. Frustrated from the lack of help given to him from the busy staffers, Gary opens fire and puts the hospital in lock down while the doctors still try to tend to their patients.
The episodes before tonight's served well to build up to the explosive and gripping season conclusion. With Webber being forced to step aside due to his alcohol addiction, Derek, as the new chief of staff, was the person forced to make the tough and correct decision to remove Mrs. Clark from life support. This death lead to the Gary's thirst for blood to pay back for the loss of the person he most loved.
Although I may sound misanthropic, I am glad the hospital staff was reduced by the shooting incident that took many of the tertiary characters' lives who were recently introduced during this season's merger plot. This season of this show, unlike the spinoff Private Practice, seemed scattered and unfocused with the multiple characters and the short time given to the ensemble of actors. Now that there are less main characters, hopefully, they will focus on developing the personalities of those who remain.
Even though this episode was exciting from the start to the last few scenes, I felt the intensity was unbelievably extended. The major problem that I had with this episode was the police reaction to the gunmen. I thought this episode reflected poorly on the Seattle Police force. I recall when I lived in Seattle and when the police pinned down a man with a sword by using a ladder. I think the police there are more resourceful and efficient than what was portrayed. The biggest flaw was when the sniper shot Gary and didn't follow up to neutralize him which is something that was totally unrealistic, but kept Lexie and the drama alive.
Read the full recap below.
