Dr. Preston Burke: [to Cristina in the back of the Church] I'm up there waiting for you to come down the aisle and I know you don't want to come. I know you don't want to come, but you'll come anyway because you love me. And if I loved you, if I loved *you*, not the woman I am trying to make you be; not the woman that I hope you'll become; but you, if I did, I wouldn't be up there waiting for you. I would be letting you go.

Forced Melodrama
22 July 2019 | by irishboy141See all my reviews

This episode has the most convoluted and melodramatic ending I've seen in a long time....

George is still a boring A-hole who can't decide between anything. Katherine Heigl's character undid what she did several episodes ago for the sake of more drama.

Meredith and Shepard are fighting for the sake of drama and to have another relationship issue to bring people back for the next season. Peter lets Ava go, then predictably regrets it like every single romantic comedy ever...

And OH MY GOD the whole Burke/Yang thing was B.S. and flies in the face of who they are and what they wanted at the start of the episode, it all feels so forced and stupid.

The theme of this episode is Unnecessary drama, it's so boring and transparent.
