Season seven of Grey’s Anatomy breathes fresh life into the medical drama, with characters and connections suddenly coming alive again. There’s romance, hospital backstabbing, heartbreak, and hope–and a lot of heart, as with the best seasons of Grey’s. One of the running themes involves an important blind test designed by McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) for a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s, which tugs at both Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), whose mother died of the disease, and the chief (James Pickens Jr.), whose wife may be exhibiting symptoms. Meanwhile, Callie (Sara Ramirez, who really owns this season), heartbroken from the breakup with Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), finds out more news that sends her reeling. New characters are introduced, including Rachael Taylor as Lucy, a foxy new ob-gyn, whom Alex (Justin Chambers) has his eye on.

I was a huge Grey’s fan for the first two seasons, kept with it for the third and fourth, and lost complete interest in it during the fifth and sixth season, only watching the begining and end of those seasons. I thought this season would be the same, but I am happy to say that Grey’s has become a must-watch show for me again.

They didn’t introduce new characters this season, which I think helped, and instead spent the time focusing on the relationships and personal growth of the already established characters. Though Dr. (Meredith) Grey is still a main character, I really think the characters of Dr. Yang and Dr. Karev shine in this season, as well as Dr. Torres, who the final episodes really seem to focus on.

I also loved the journey of Alex this season, he and Christina were both center stage and it was a nice change of pace. Callie, Mark, and Arizona’s journey as a “family” was also a good storyline. Adele’s Alzheimer’s was heartbreaking, and if I had been Meredith I would have done the same thing.

To sum it all up just like with any other season of Grey’s you will laugh all over again with this show and the characters. I can’t wait for season 8!.
