A Hooker from God, Callie O'Malley, and Redeeming a Big Bad

I did write yesterday, but I haven't counted the words. Not a thousand, I'm sure, but Mal and Maddy are alone and about to follow the ghost into a secret passageway - whoo-hoo!

Both Grey's and Supernatural were great! I'd like to slap Izzy, though. She's getting on my nerves and she used to be my favorite. She doesn't deserve Denny anymore ;) Good for Meredith for telling her mother what's what. How much time had passed, though? I didn't hear. They got that clinic up and running fast. Loved the looks Addison was giving Alex, loved that she ran into the OR.

Best quotes:

"She's Callie O'Malley."

"I embrace the trashy."

Supernatural was good, too. I started watching it as soon as Grey's was over. The dh and ds were playing guitar in the garage. They came in around 9:15 and I told them they missed a great line. The dh said I could rewind it so they could hear it. When I started rewinding, he said I could rewind it to the beginning if I wanted. Mm-hm. HE wanted to see it. He loved last week's episode, especially the last scene.

Anyway, this week. Poor Dean, stuck in the hotel room, and dang it, all I can think about since seeing that picture I posted Wednesday was, Please, Sammy, take your shirt off.

Oops, digressing again. Dirty old lady. Good brotherly moments, though reminiscent of "Faith." LOVED the ending. LOVED it. I told Trish I could start diagramming these shows for my kids to show them plot structure. They're all pretty faithful to the same structure.

I'm afraid to see next week's episode, though. I worry about Sam. (I know they're supposed to be fictional, but they feel real.)

BEST quote, possibly of the season:

"Always put your Christmas decorations away after New Year or you'll be fileted by a hooker from God."

I'm still laughing.

Okay, onto the seriousness.

I was reading through Spy Girl last night and I think it works. But. I need the bad guy turned hero to be pretty bad. Like, almost Jack Bauer enemy bad. I think I have to do that to justify sending in all these agents against him (though, technically, my heroine is there to find out what happened to one of them, her ex-husband, who needs to play a bigger role, too.) I'm going to be definitely pushing my comfort levels here with this, but how far can I push reader comfort levels?

How bad can I make him?

The darker Supernatural gets, the lighter I'm making my book, so actually I'm starting to see Mal more as Alec from Dark Angel than as Dean, though he definitely has Dean qualities.

The woman who wrote this episode was also one of the writers on Faith. It seems inevitable that they would come to this point--so much about "evil" is about the balance with "good."

I wanted to tell Sam that they ARE the balance. They are the good that counters the evil.

I have to admit I was surprised by the Vegas Wedding on GA. Everytime I think I can peg the outcome they mix it up on me. I like that.

Grey's was awesome. I also loved when Addison ran into the OR and the "Callie O'Malley" quote made me laugh. :)

It's all about motivation Mary. Motivate him and you can go pretty dang bad.
I LOVED Grey's last night too. It was AWESOME.

Yeah, Grey's was pretty good this week. But Izzy's getting on my nerves too. Annoying character lately.

Natalie, I was thinking the same thing about the boys being the true border between good and evil!

Kelly, I was surprised by the Vegas wedding too. I thought Cristina would say yes and Callie would say no.

Bonnie, and to think I started out NOT liking Addison. Now I want to BE Addison!

Mary Beth, I think I have a good motivation for him, but in these times....I don't know. I need to make the other guy in the triangle stronger, as well.

Allie, I could understand grief-stricken Izzy, could FEEL for her, but yeesh, she's gotten bitchy.
