Yeah, that's not good.
May. 7th, 2014 11:11 pm (UTC)
Bad news a-coming
May. 7th, 2014 11:11 pm (UTC)
Hmmm, maybe that's what makes Callie get checked out perhaps & that's when she gets the devastating news? Obviously that's only if it's what everyone's thinking.
May. 7th, 2014 11:21 pm (UTC)
She signed in, so I think she was there for her own appointment.
May. 7th, 2014 11:58 pm (UTC)
Yeah I just realized that. I'm so used to seeing them on tablets & signing things it didn't register at first.

I need something else for me to feel anything about this episode in the Callie/Arizona department. I feel no portent of doom, no sense of excitement, nothing. Although on second thought, I appreciate the total lack of anxiousness about the end of the season for the first time in a long, long time. I'll take it and coast 'til September.
May. 7th, 2014 11:49 pm (UTC)
Preach. It's been years since an impending season finale hasn't ruined my sanity :)
May. 8th, 2014 11:00 pm (UTC)
LOL. This is where I am exactly.

I could just see Callie being told its not safe for her to get pregnant for reasons related to her heart/ the car crash and not telling Arizona. Why? Because Arizoa is sooo excited, so happy and Callie just wants to make her happy, doesn't want to see her wife sad.

End result? We know, Callie knows, Arizona does not. We watch through next season as Arizona inseminates her, is joyous when Callie is pregnant, all the milestones. Arizona could not be happier and we worry alongside Callie not just about wht might happen to Callie but also to them when Arizona finds out.

So a joyous pregnancy is ruined for the fans? Shonda wouldnt do that to us now, would she?

May. 8th, 2014 12:59 am (UTC)
Hmm...I actually find that the least likely at this point, just because the two of them have finally gotten at least halfway decent at communicating. I can't see Callie keeping something that big from her wife.
May. 8th, 2014 04:02 am (UTC)
You know, I'd send Shonda a one year gift certificate to that pizza place she loves if she'd let Callie and Arizona face whatever is heading their way as a couple!
May. 8th, 2014 04:39 am (UTC)
I'll contribute to the cause. :)
May. 8th, 2014 07:35 am (UTC)
Me too! From your post to Shonda's ears or eyes or whatever... ;)
May. 8th, 2014 03:44 pm (UTC)
HollywoodPizza4Together achieved a quorum. lol
May. 8th, 2014 01:33 pm (UTC)
So, basically, in this scenario, we all spend the entire season waiting for the other shoe to drop? That will not do.
May. 8th, 2014 01:02 am (UTC)
I don't want to be presumptuous & I could be wrong, but that scene almost spells out Callie finds out she can no longer carry children.
I just don't understand why it appears Shonda & Co. are recycling yet another story line. April & Jackson get pregnant without even trying, yet the couple trying (this time Callie/Arizona) don't get pregnant. I'm gonna assume Callie and Arizona skip Arizona trying to get pregnant & just adopt since that is exactly how the story line went last time. That is fine, but not interesting since it's a been there done that. I might just be pleasantly surprised though.

The fact these women both decided they want another child coupled with Arizona's practical reason for another almost guarantees at some point they will have another child. I guess I just don't want to see it drug out 3 seasons.
May. 8th, 2014 01:04 am (UTC)
An active choice to adopt instead of a specific baby just falling into laps could be very interesting, though. Navigating the process and choosing a child and whatnot.
May. 8th, 2014 01:12 am (UTC)
It would be interesting to watch Callie & Arizona actively find a child they fall in love with or watch them nervously meeting the pregnant women in hopes of potentially being the baby's parents.
But I think they would end up doing it just like with Zola.
May. 8th, 2014 01:21 am (UTC)
Agreed. That's why I wasn't into the whole "I hope they keep Oscar" thing. Like you said, I don't just want a baby to fall in their laps. I want them to go through the process if it comes to that.
May. 8th, 2014 01:30 am (UTC)
That reminds me - does anyone remember a fic where Callie and Arizona adopted a little girl from Russia? I found it once on FF.net and I remember being surprised that I hadn't seen it before. As far as I know, the author never finished it, but I also don't remember who the author was or what the story was called. Does it ring any bells for anyone?

(And the award for most off-topic comment goes to... :P)
May. 8th, 2014 01:35 am (UTC)
I actually think I remember people talking about that story on here before & I think I was going to read it & never did. Wish I could remember the name or author. If you make a post about it, I'm sure someone will know it.
May. 8th, 2014 05:04 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D
May. 8th, 2014 03:54 am (UTC)
Would adoption mean legal marriage ala Meredith and Derek?
May. 8th, 2014 01:35 pm (UTC)
May. 8th, 2014 03:53 am (UTC)
Surrogacy - recycling and yet it's not. Couple want child, but can't have one (Callie can't, Arizona doesn't want to) - ???
May. 8th, 2014 06:30 pm (UTC)
They could do it as an issue w/Callie's eggs so that Arizona could donate and Calle could carry.
May. 8th, 2014 11:45 pm (UTC)
Honestly I was thinking surrogacy only because we've had miscarriage and abortions (Addison and Cristina), difficult births, post birth complications for mother and child, fairly routine pregnancy (Bailey) and adoption.

Plus surrogacy or adoption made me think it may qualify as an "interesting" reason for Callie and Arizona to legally marry.

Sure I'm wrong. While I can usually get the emotional action / reactions the characters will express -- I seldom get the plots right. Close but never right -- e.g. thought Cristina might surpass the teacher (Burke), instead she's just going to replace him.

Ah well, it's fun to speculate!
May. 9th, 2014 12:18 am (UTC)
Callie having to carry Arizona's eggs would be my ideal scenario to play out. I was quite bummed when it wasn't even a suggestion they considered.
May. 8th, 2014 01:41 am (UTC)
I mean no offense to any die-hard Japril fans (I do like them, too!), but...
I'm kind of annoyed that their issues were tied up after like 2 episodes. Tension over religion and hypothetical children to finding out they're having a baby and now they are back to happiness?
Meanwhile, after a season and a half of hard stuff, Calzona's about to be dealt another crappy hand. Now granted, I know we don't know the extent of Callie's bad news and how far the doom-and-gloom will play out, but... it just bothers me. I know "happy couple" = characters on the back burner, but they are SO HAPPY about this and I think they deserve a "win".

I just want Calzona to close out this season happy. That's all. :)

I agree and see where you are coming from. I mean, it is good that Jackson seems to care about the child, but those are definitely tough issues they faced and shouldn't be brushed under the rug. Especially since they got married so fast.
May. 8th, 2014 01:54 am (UTC)
Oh I don't believe Japril's issues are over. At all. Like you said, it was too easy.

I'm fairly certain the hard drama is over for Calzona. This is just a bump that they have to get over, but since they're in a better place and are communicating, I think this is something we'll see them overcome together.
May. 8th, 2014 02:52 am (UTC)
yess hopefully
cant wait until tomorrow
May. 8th, 2014 02:22 am (UTC)
I'm actually happy that the Japril nonsense was tied up. I thought the fighting was stupid & childish. Not to mention April leaving to stay with Calzona for a few days. I don't think that needed to be dragged out any more. It was a simple fix for now.
May. 8th, 2014 04:00 am (UTC)
Oh, I don't think it's done at all. It definitely feels like swept under a rug to me. Plus, one expects more bumps as well.

I'm guessing they will have a cliff hanger as will Alex, Jo, and Bailey.

Is Allen returning for the finale? If yes, Richard needs to watch out as yell. LOL
May. 8th, 2014 04:18 am (UTC)
I don't think anything felt swept under the rug to me though. The main issue was about the religion thing. It's easier for Jackson to compromise going to church than it is for April to not go. So that's what he told her he would do. I don't think it'll kill Jackson to go to church & after he made the decision he seemed pretty content. I think he realized his wife & child were more important than fighting over something that really doesn't HAVE to be a big deal. Now of course I'm sure more bumps lie ahead because it's Grey's after all, but I don't think anything was swept under the rug. They dealt with it. And it was easier to deal with than they thought. That's how I felt about the whole thing anyway.
May. 8th, 2014 05:05 am (UTC)
Yes, the main issue was April's faith, but they had huge differences in their core values on how to raise children which is a big deal, it's one thing to argue when it's hypothetical, but now there's a REAL CHILD coming. Also, the catalyst for the argument over faith/religion was the deaf child where Jackson was just like "if he was my child, he'd get the implant no matter what"... and April had a BIG problem with that. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there was some type of problem with April's pregnancy where they're forced to make a decision that's based on the catalyst of that fight. Like, there was thoughts of Callie having a dangerous pregnancy.... what if it's April and they need to make a decision? Or maybe the child will have some type of disability that they find out before she's due, what will they decide? THAT is interesting drama (my issue is would Jesse Williams be able to pull off this kinda drama)
May. 9th, 2014 12:35 am (UTC)
I think they learned about arguing about hypothetical issues. Deal with them as they come like adults. They'll be surprised what they can accomplish. They can't sit down & make a list of hypothetical situations involving their kids before they even happen. They'll go crazy. I think they compromised on the big thing of April's faith. Jackson's ok with going to church because like he told her, they pretty much believe in the same things morally. I think they'll be fine if they leave the immaturity behind & just be them together. And I think I'm over scary pregnancies/delivery storylines. It's getting old.
May. 8th, 2014 03:58 am (UTC)
I wasn't around here but I would guess the Meredith/Derek shippers felt the same way about Callie/Arizona - as in they are having a baby and Meredith and Derek can't. Yes, no, maybe?

Also - I find myself wondering if there may not be a problem with April and Jackson's baby. The "faith" problem did seem to get resolved too easily. Considering the catalyst came from parents of a deaf child that could hear with surgery....

Guess I don't see "Mama" Catherine as a real drama burner. Well, unless she did something with Jackson's funds or inheritance or whatever...
May. 8th, 2014 05:09 am (UTC)
Oh, MerDer shippers were pissed in s7 when Callie got pregnant and Mer couldn't. I can't speak for the Calzona fandom, but I know me, personally, I'll be just as pissed if Japril have a super happy easy pregnancy and everything is sunshine and rainbows next season, when Callie & Arizona have gone through utter hell (including the pregnancy in s7) and only manage to be happy for a short period of time (and get no storyline while it happens lol).
May. 8th, 2014 03:02 am (UTC)
"Both of you?"

Haha I love Callie! It's so sad she's gonna get hit with bad news again though. :(
May. 8th, 2014 08:51 am (UTC)
Despite the devastating news, I look forward to a Calzona baby storyline as this time (hopefully) it will not involve a third party entering their relationship (aka Mark). I still hope AZ will change her mind so that they will not go the adoption route.
May. 8th, 2014 09:31 pm (UTC)
I feel the same but not because I don't want them to adopt, I'm a very big fan of adoption IRL as I'm adopted myself, just I would like to see Arizona offer to get pregnant and mean it and try.if it doesn't happen then I'm happy with adoption or surrogacy or deciding they are done
