Thus far, Bailey has held it together admirably as anti-abortion protesters have targeted the reproductive-health clinic that she named after her late mother. But “at some point, it’s going to start to touch her personally,” said Chandra Wilson, the OG who plays Miranda. “So I’m excited for our audience to be able to go through that journey with her. It’s one thing to watch somebody you know [and quite another] when it’s like, ‘Oh, but wait a minute, she’s me,’ and to see what that awakens in people when you get rid of all the noise and just get down to the basics of healthcare. That’s the story that we’re trying to tell.”
Grey’s introduced a trans character years ago with Schmitt’s intern class and they completely underutilited him and then he just disappeared. Dr. Casey Parker. He was a delight and the best character out of that new group. Should’ve kept him on.
Kai is boring. They could’ve told a non-binary character story from one of the new interns or had someone else in that relationship. Amelia and Link were so good together and the writers imploded them literally for no reason. And right now, with everyone leaving Amelia’s life, she’d have Link and their little family of three to keep her anchored in her personal life. Oh well, not the first time Grey’s has completely wasted good pairings, storylines, and potential.
The writers broke up Amelia and Link and ruined their storyline solely to give a relationship with a transgender and main cast member airtime, no reason it couldn’t have been Jo or someone else who was single instead.
kai (and their portrayer er fightmaster) are not transgender, they are non-binary. there is a big difference, and it would be highly appreciated if you could learn it. if not from the show, then at least from this article, where they’ve literally written it down.
No need to be vile and rude Dominique
What’s vile about her post? I agree with her.
it is this type of self-righteous, condescending, militant comment that turns people away and makes them realize that it does not matter what people say or how they adjust, there will always be someone bound an determined to be offended by something.
Grey has been wasting good characters with new stories last few seasons. Casey as a trans, Nico as an Asian gay, Quadri as a Muslim, Carina as a new fun character and OB after many seasons since Addison, zen I can’t remember his name and others.
I really hope for a cast shakeup next season and bring some new characters with discussed diverse stories.
It’s not “a” trans – just trans.
If they want to do an offshoot, sending a doctor to the South American hospital where the too-quickly-cancelled Shondaland production Off the Mal took place. And give us more of that hospital-in-a-jungle drama. I really liked that show.
OMG this!!! O loved that show. Was so mad it was canceled
Has there really been tons of championing for Amelia and Kai and their “amazing chemistry?” If she says so. I have no objection to the pairing in theory, but I find E.R. Fightmaster’s character/acting on this show very dull (I hear they’ve been excellent on other projects), so I’ve appreciated the back-burnering.
And if they ever do another spin-off, please have it NOT center around Owen.
Honestly, it’s like that pairing doesn’t exist anymore. Everyone made a huge deal about them and their chemistry and the actor (actress?) coming on the show and since then, nothing.
FWIW while “actor” has historically been used for males (or I guess more accurately, “actress” has been used for females) it is largely used in a gender neutral way now as part of a wider push into not using different words just to indicate it’s a female within that profession (“manageress”, “doctress” and “lawyeress” being examples that are largely unused).
I don’t know what E.R. uses to describe their profession so can’t say for sure in their case, but as a general rule “actor” is an acceptable neutral term nowadays.
YES. “Actress” is a long-outdated word.
The funny thing is, they were supposedly going to go down the Amelia/Carina route at some point but then they moved Carina over to Station 19. So I wasn’t entirely surprised when they decided to implode Amelia and Link for Kai. The unfortunate thing is that the character of Kai is so incredibly boring. It’s the writing and the way ER plays them equally so it’s been kind of stagnant. But then again Greys has always kind of ruined their LGBT+ pairings for no actual reason other than ‘drama’.
I just wish their presentation wasn’t so flat. There’s no inflection in their voice.
I don’t think there has really been that much support for Kai/Amelia. ER Fightmaster cannot act and has no chemistry with Catarina Scorsone. As a gay man, I feel the need to point out that those of us who preferred Amelia with Link are speaking out not as anti-LGBTQIA but as long-time viewers who want to watch couples worth rooting for.
I like that the writers actually seem excited to create stories with the new interns. I feel like the show has come alive again since their introduction.
They aren’t exactly pushing diversity boundaries (at least not by Grey’s standards), but they are each charismatic and interesting, and their interactions make the older characters more interesting too.
Sorry but Amelia and Kai have absolutely no chemistry. Kai’s acting is boring and stiff.
i’ve been disappointed with the lack of airtime for kai, and kaimelia, and i was hoping we’d get more for them in the next few episodes.
also, as someone as here mentioned; what happened to casey parker? a wonderful transgender character who could’ve been utilized way more.
Kai is back in next week’s episode.
Casey’s PTSD was triggered after the car crashed into Joe’s bar and they left to get treatment.
Army medical docs was done on “Night Shift” and they can’t top those sexy docs!
I think that the show is better without ellen. She wanted off the show, which makes it hard to watch her, when she doesn’t want to be there. Very happy now that she is not a regular
Grey’s Anatomy without a Grey isn’t Grey’s Anatomy. I propose the following…
When we were introduced to Lexie we were introduced to another sister. It’s time that sister, a Grey by birth, should be reintroduced and brought into the family.
Are you refering to Thatcher‘s and Molly‘s other daughter? As I recall, she was an army wife… I would not find it really believable that she has become a doctor since we last saw her. Maybe a nurse?
Also: I feel like the „Grey“ name is more linked to Meredith‘s mom, who was the doctor… that‘s why after Lexie they went for Maggie (biological daughter of 2 great doctors). I‘ll admit it was hard to supend my disbelief for that storyline at first… but from the „medical drama“ standpoint of view, it actually made more sense than it would reintroducing Lexie‘s sister now, imho.
Sorry for eventual mistakes, non-native speaker here.
Think a great spin off would be to follow Jackson. It would seem there would be so many places to go with it.
