Sandra Oh Shonda Rhimes

When a Grey’s Anatomy finale is titled Farewell to Christina, fans know roughly what to expect – especially since Sandra Oh’s departure from the Shonda Rhimes-penned drama was announced some months ago. Even so, Thursday’s season finale was a pretty dramatic affair. Let's get the warning out of the way: SO. MANY. SPOILERS.

Sandra Oh
Sandra Oh's final episode promised to be emotional from the very beginning.

The tweets started flying around early on, with fans urging other fans to grab the wine and tissues – it was going to be an emotional episode. Sure enough, the episode started on a high. Oh’s Dr. Christina Yang is just leaving Dr. Owen Hunt after spending the night with him. Everything is coming up Christina. She’s happy. She’s leaving for Switzerland to pursue a new job.

ABC Expanding Partnerships With Shonda Rhimes, Marvel With Fall Pickups


Shonda Rhimes Hayley Atwell

The series pickup frenzy is hitting ABC this week, with the channel announcing orders for five new series so far. Two of the pickups are rather unsurprising. One is the suspence thriller How to Get Away with Murder, developed by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers – ABC’s resident hitmakers behind Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. The series stars Viola Davis as a "brilliant, charismatic and seductive" law professor who gets entangled with four students from her class. Just wait till Twitter sinks its teeth into this one.

Shonda Rhimes
Shonda Rhimes is bringing a third potential hit to ABC this fall.

Then there’s Marvel’s Agent Carter, continuing ABC’s successful collaboration with Marvel. The new series pickup comes on the heels of ABC’s renewal of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series stars Captain America's Hayley Atwell and takes place a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. According to the LA Times, it follows the story of Peggy Carter as she battles sexism in the 1940s and builds a career as a secret agent. The series sounds like a good choice to tap into the ongoing discussion about hot topics like feminism, sexism in the workplace and so on. Plus, it would give an even more comprehensive look at the Marvel universe from “ye olde days”, which is always a good thing.
