What an epic? I do not know how many fans of this series are here but having just watched the just concluded episode, which I learned is the finale for Season 6. As you can recall from previous episodes prior to this nail biting epic, we had a widower - Mr. Clark - who recently lost his wife who after a surgery-related complication put her in a coma. Later, after a judgment call, Dr. Sheperd ordered resident Lexie Grey to pull the plug on the patient, even though her husband — Mr. Clark — wanted her to live. When a lawsuit against the hospital didn't bring the closure he was looking for, Mr. Clark returned carrying a gun into the hospital to bring a closure on his wife's executioner. Making this finale by far the most controversial cliffhangers. Yet, I cannot help but shake my head with a few of my personal observations. I just could not help reminding myself about the gun ownership issue in the US from this episode, where some individual gun owners who have over the years gone ballistics with their collection, leaving a trail of dead and seriously wounded. There is some exaggerated oversights here, where the writer actually had ONE 5 member SWAT team sweeping the whole hospital grounds looking for the shooter which is Mr Clark here. So, I think this is what I would regard a flaw here in the script. The other blatant oversight is that doctors and hospital staff could be so traumatized by what I would regard an everyday affair for them, to see the seriously wounded, bleeding and blood that I cannot buy that they can be scared to the effect of panic and not able to carry on helping the wounded. None of the doctors, could be calm enough to assist the police tracked down the shooter and that confrontation by Dr Owen is just the epic to stupidity than chivalry. Alright, I've said my part and ranted enough. If you do not know what I am talking about, then you have to see the finale episode to discuss this. So, have a great time.

Also, the swat guy who shot Clark when he was about to kill Lexie certainly was a bad shot and he didn't even go after Clark apparently. Clark should have been down for some time and then left a trial of blood. The swat guy should have caught up to him and cornered him in just a few minutes with back up there almost as fast.

stealthy, Kudos! I must admit that you are spot on here, great observation! There's just so much loopholes in the plot that is discrediting the writer for this series - who is rather unfamiliar with actual emergencies and police work. Thanks for your interesting response. Have a nice day.

I thought it was a great episode. other blatant oversight is that doctors and hospital staff could be so traumatized by what I would regard an everyday affair for them, to see the seriously wounded, bleeding and blood that I cannot buy that they can be scared to the effect of panic and not able to carry on helping the wounded. But, that's the thing. It wasn't an every day affair. Sure, they see wounded people. On stretchers, coming in ambulances. And, if their patients were injured because they got shot? Well, in an every day affair, the shooter has already been apprehended and is no longer a threat or at least isn't at the hospital. This was more than seeing people wounded after the fact. I don't think there are many, if any hospitals that can say having someone shooting inside the hospital is an "every day" affair. Thank goodness, or they'd never get me to go to one. It's not an every day affair to have your own life threatened. Unless your hospital is in the middle of a war zone. I don't think any of them were scared of the blood. Scared that they might get shot? Sure, since when would they have the opportunity to get desensitized to being potential targets for a shooter? Panicky because there's blood or injured people? No. Panicky because there are injured people in a highly stressful and unusual situation? Sure. Panicky because they're dealing with friends and colleagues and people they care about or at least know better than the average patient? Yes, and it makes perfect sense to me. There's a reason doctors aren't supposed to treat family members. Because even when it actually can be called an every day situation, it's much harder to be objective and detached with someone you care about.

I don't know anything about what a real life scenario like that would be, but thats what fiction dramas are all about. Look at Lost, so freaking out there, that would never happen. People have fun watching something that is not real, not how it would really happen. I do understand where you are coming from though, but I thought it was an amazing season finale and I just watched it, its 2 am, I know I need to sleep, but the suspense of the episode got my adrenaline going I think, and so I can't relax just yet, it got me too excited

spicysweetie21, I suppose this is what it is called - entertainment. I must agree that it has been an amazing season and as far as the show is concern has been entertaining. I heard that the other series - Lost was a little anti climax which is coming to a close of the season as well. But, I am just eager to watch Kieffer Sutherland's 24. P.S. Just to let you know that there is a malware on searched Lost finale episode online. So do be careful if you do not want to have your computer messed up.

Hey sky! I AM an AVID and FAITHFUL Grey's watcher! And I must say, that I think I was so freaked out with all the stuff going on at the same time I might have actually missed what really happened in the final few minutes! I know Mr. Clark did end up shooting Dr. Shepherd, after killing quite a few of the "regulars" from this season (and thanks Mr. Clark for getting rid of some of my lesser favs!) Ooops! Sorry! You did shoot "McDreamy" azzhole! I don't remember much after that! It was too much, too fast and I don't remember how it actually ended! Christina saved Dr. Shepherd?, I think?, Dr. Weber got Clark to shoot himself?, I sure as hell hope so! So, WTF did Owen do? He picked Christina over the other one? WTF cares! That show had me up and down and needing a Valium by the end! What a Grand Finale! Way to go "Grey's" And I thought the "Practice" rocked! Go ABC!!!

Opal26, Well, I must say that the finale was really end to end here. Not to spoil it, I think we shall not dwell on the actual plot so that other members here can enjoy it. Anyway, it was definitely great except I have to feel that the author to the producers are being more medically inclined than police law enforcement.

I think that the reason the staff were freaking out so much is because it was THEIR friends and loved ones doing all the bleeding and dying. That wouldn't be such an everyday thing for them. The only part I couldn't believe was that the swat sniper let Frank get up and walk away after Lexie almost got killed....Geez! You are in the hospital to find one man, you do, and shoot him. The girl you saved goes down a hallway, and you just let the killer walk away, too???!!!!! Nah, that one part kinda gets me,lol!

wickedstepma, Well, you've hit it right on the nail about the SWAT sniper- who just put any sniper to disrepute with such a shot. And, as if the A team does not have a comms to call in for a follow up. Not forgetting that the city just seem to have 1 SWAT team without a negotiator. Also, I cannot believe it when none of the hospital staff to patients could actually react as if there's another towering inferno. I mean I am sure they can pick up a phone to call for the police. There's just too many misfits - just lame. P.S. The author needs to be shot!

I was able to watch the finale and IT WAS REALLY breathtaking coz you will not know what will happen next. You will not know if Mr. Clark will shoot or not. Breathtaking scenes of Mr. Clark were with Bailey, Lexie, Callie and Arizona, Cristina in the operating room with Owen, Mer and Derek. oops, almost all.
