Rant: Grey's Anatomy Season Finale

First off, I realize that this is a book blog and the posts on here are supposed to be about books. However, seeing as this is my blog, I feel that I have the right to post something non-book related every now and again. So that’s what I’m doing.
Last night was the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy and all die hard Grey’s fans knew that one of the main characters was going to die. I must admit I had a bad feeling about this episode. I just knew it was going to be Derek or Lexie after watching last week’s episode. Then I heard that the original cast members resigned a two year contract so I narrowed it down to Lexie.
I kept telling myself that it couldn’t be her. There was no way that they would kill off Lexie Grey. Not after her and Meredith had finally gotten close. Not after Meredith had lost her mother, step mom, and her dad went off the deep end. Not after Lexie FINALLY told Mark that she was still in love with him. And certainly not after Mark had told Derek that he was going to tell her he loved her after he broke things off with his current girlfriend. No, this couldn’t all end with Lexie dying.
Yet, it did. Lexie died holding Mark’s hand. It was beautiful and tragic and for me completely devastating. Lexie and Mark were my second favorite couple. I wanted them to get together and stay together for years. As Mark said, “You can’t die. We’re meant to be together.” Yeah, that pretty much sums up how I felt. Yet, she did.
I’ve watched Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning. For eight years, I have watched this show. I watched Meredith find out Derek was married. I was there when Izzy lost Denny. I cried when John Doe turned out to be George.  I worried that Izzy really had gone crazy with she started seeing Denny again. I watched Christina get left by Burke on their wedding day. I saw Meredith almost get killed by a bomb, drowning, & an insane shooter. The point is I’ve seen it all and though it was sad I understood. It made sense. But this I just can’t make sense of.
I know this is crazy. I know Lexie is a fictional character in a fictional story. I KNOW this but it doesn’t matter. After eight years, you get attached to characters and their fictional lives. You care what happens to them. I care.
I say all of that to say this. I don’t know if I can continue to watch the show now. I keep trying to force myself past this but I just can’t. Every time I think about it, I tear up. I don’t see how things can work out that can satisfy me. I honestly want to watch the show because like I said I’ve watched it for eight years. Maybe Shonda Rhimes has a reason for doing what she did. I just can’t see. But right now, I really don’t care. I’m just pissed and terribly sad.
Okay…rant over. Just had to get that off my chest.
