"Don’t blame me, blame the writers" - Sara Ramirez when asked about the Grey’s Anatomy storyline
GOTTA LOVE HER
Did she really say that? That’s kind of a negative statement regarding the writing, don’t you think?
They said she was laughing/joking when she said it. But I can’t help but believe that she and Jessica (especially Jessica) have to wonder why they changed direction. Jessica while also laughing talked about writers at 200th. She said “you go in and they tell you everything that will happen and then it changes.” Same sentiment here from Sara. You know those two talk about their SL a lot. Also, I would not blame either one if they were tired of taking heat from people who think they are actually their characters.
Actually I was just thinking about the Jessica quote during the 200th red carpet! You know what I feel. Both JCap and Sara are also kinda wondering where this is going. Pretty much seems like we don’t see direction on our screen that’s exactly how it is. Thr is no direction. Shonda had said something strange in the beginning of the season about mapping Callie and Az’s characters out and seeing how they develop and where they land up or some such thing….do you remember something like that?
So I feel writers are just swinging from the hip and till now it’s pretty much a miss!!
I’m still surprised they didn’t go with PTSD. Aug 5th interview with Shonda she was still selling it. Now, no symptoms. Only way I can even see a small possibility is with the brain mapping (can diagnose PTSD), but seems to be getting too late in story.
It could have been so interesting but they thought whatever the reason to be revealed in ep 9 was more interesting I guess. If they don’t touch on PTSD after all the interviews what a disservice to Jessica to have her go out there and promote it. If Shonda wants to play a fool that’s her business but don’t throw a loyal team player like Jessica under your plot twisting bus!
Right? Jessica is definitely taking it on the chin for turn this story is taking.
I’m giving this story until ep 12, and I’m not jumping ship or anything, but if there isn’t a clear indicator then about the why, then I’m giving up trying to figure it out and just going with they wanted to break them up so they had Arizona cheat. Just like there is no explanation of why Callie wasn’t in Boise, other than they felt it was more important for Callie to be in scenes with Mark and Derek and it was spreading SaRa too thin to be in every thread.
I just care about Sara’s blazer here.
