Its that time of the year when your favorite shows leave you in suspense and guessing on what happens next; The good ol' cliffhanger!

Not to add that they kill off major characters from their shows to get you to come back in September.

Grey's Anatomy has been the most shocking so far as they "killed off" two of their major characters.

And what a finale it was!

(SPOILERS: DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN!)

The 2 hour Season Finale ended in a cliffhanger as Izzie Stevens went into cardiac arrest after signing a DNR order. The doctors chose to ignore the order and continue with CPR. In another storyline, George O'Malley announced that he would join the army as a Trauma Surgeon. This prompted the other surgeons to try to stage an intervention for him as they battled to save a John Doe patient who pushed a woman out of the way of a bus, and was caught under it. In the last few minutes of the episode, the surgeons go to approach George after his surgery but they find out that he has never scrubbed in and went home to be with his family. Meanwhile, the John Doe patient spells out "007" on Meredith's hand. Meredith realizes that "007" is the nickname that they gave George in the first season and she realizes that the John Doe is actually George, who then codes during surgery.

The season ends with Izzy standing in the elevator,in her prom dress, and the elevator doors open to reveal George standing in his Army uniform on the other side of the elevator. It is unclear which, or if both characters die. Although according to co-star James Pickens Jr, Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are both leaving "Grey's Anatomy".



----------------------------------------

Smallville was no different:
They killed off Jimmy Olsen!
...or did THEY!!!?

Talk about dodging a tall loophole with a single bound. In tonight's season finale, Smallville managed to kill off an iconic Superman character without incurring the wrath of the evil mythos police. I'm referring, of course, to the death of Jimmy Olsen at the hands of a de-Doomsdayed Davis. The show later revealed (or strongly implied?) that the shutterbug's younger brother is, in fact, the real Jimmy.


-------------------------------------

LOST was incredible and not far behind with their own "kill offs" as well.

Genesis, Sigmund Freud, the Odyssey, Flannery O’Connor, Carl Jung, “Dr. Strangelove” — Wednesday night’s season finale of “Lost” was so chockablock with archetype, mythology and cultural references it was like watching Joseph Campbell on crack.

It opened with a man (in a cave, so throw in Plato) hunched over a spinning wheel (Ghandi? Penelope at her loom? Or just a reference to the Blood, Sweat and Tears song?), then cut to two men on a beach. Their garments vaguely period, their speech decidedly modern, they argue over a frigate in full sail on the horizon. One man (in black) says in disgust that he knows they are coming because the other man (in white) brought them.

“They come, they fight, they fight, they destroy, they corrupt,” Black says bitterly. “It always ends the same."

"It only ends once,” says White serenely. “Anything that happens before that -- it’s just progress."

“Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?”

“Yes.”

“One of these days, sooner or later, I’ll find a final loophole, my friend.”

“Well, when you do I’ll be right here.”

“Always nice talking to you, Jacob.”

Cut to a very impressive CG statue standing like the Colossus of Rhodes, only with what appears to be the head of a crocodile. While not, perhaps, “Waiting for Godot,” it was one of the more powerful opening scenes of a season finale and begs the professorial question: So, class, what have we learned?

Clearly Jacob (Mark Pellegrino who is pictured), previously a mysterious authority figure (Boo Radley meets Moses), has been around for a while. (We later learn that he has in fact visited each of the key characters at significant moments of their life.) But who is he really? God? And does that make Mr. Black some incarnation of Satan, the two perpetually battling over the basic nature of the human soul? Is the island then Eden, existing outside space and time to serve as a kind of spiritual laboratory?


The rest of the episode never quite lived up to the opening, but certainly those and similar issues were addressed. When Sawyer (Josh Holloway), Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) decide to ditch the sub and row that boat ashore, the first people they meet are Bernard (Sam Anderson) and Rose (L. Scott Henderson), who quickly inform them that they are not at all interested in either the Dharma/anti-Dharma, the hydrogen bomb/no hydrogen bomb or even the old favorite Jack/Sawyer conflict. They are “retired” and disappointed to find that their old beach comrades are still looking for ways to shoot each other. Bernard and Rose, the island’s John and Yoko, just want to be together.

Most everyone else, however, remains happily locked in one conflict or another, most of which boil down to the old “just because you can, should you?” conundrum. Jack (Matthew Fox) believes that following Daniel Faraday’s plan to detonate the hydrogen bomb will erase everything that happened after he got on that fateful flight to Los Angeles. Sayid (Naveen Andrews) is all for it, Hurley (Jorge Garcia) is happy to drive, while Miles, as usual, gives voice to irritated reason but takes no action. Kate and Sawyer and Juliet, meanwhile, think the bomb is a Very Bad Idea, until they change their minds — Kate for love of Jack, Sawyer for love of Juliet and Juliet because she realizes Sawyer still really loves Kate and she will Do Anything to avoid heartbreak.

That the epic events of this show seem to hinge on stolen glances and other hallmarks of high school love is rather disappointing, except of course that’s precisely what drove much of Shakespeare.
Fortunately, Ben (the unflappable Michael Emerson) and Locke (the indefatigable Terry O’Quinn) are providing an antidote to every romance and bromance on television. Locke, with a newfound swagger and most alarming grin, is off to kill the Wizard (that would be Jacob), except he’s going to make Ben do it. And Ben, who has been told by his dead daughter he must do whatever John Locke says, may grow paler and more weasely-looking at the thought but does not falter.

Except, it turns out that Locke may not be Locke. Because look, there’s his body in a box carted around by a subset of the Others, and when "Locke” finally confronts Jacob, it is with dialogue most reminiscent of Mr. Black. But Ben, a bitter Cain to “Locke’s” Abel — why did Jacob never let him into his holy presence until now? — dutifully wields his knife. Meanwhile, over at the Swan, Jack has dumped the bomb into the power pit, except it doesn’t do much but turn the hole into a giant magnet that sucks up every bit of metal, including a chain that somehow gets wrapped around Juliet’s waist. Sawyer catches hold of her but to save the man she loves (and because we hear Elizabeth Mitchell’s already signed onto another show) Juliet lets go and falls, like Alice to the bottom of the rabbit hole, where, choosing grief and frustration over gratitude that she is miraculously still alive, she beats on the hydrogen bomb until it finally explodes. Or at least it seems to explode. In a negative reflection of “The Sopranos” finale, the screen goes white.

Certainly it was a thought-provoking finale to a fairly great season in which the writers did things like have a mother kill her own child (Faraday) while she is pregnant with him, which is the literary and psychological equivalent of a turn-around jump shot and nothing to sneeze at. But there were times in these overly stuffed two hours when you couldn’t help but laugh as images of a "Lost"-ian writers room rose in your mind — oookkkaaay, so that’s what the hatch was for, why there’s a bomb on the island, how Locke was resurrected. It’s good to know that the creators have a (fairly) clear vision of where they’re going, and if the Jacob of the spinning wheel doesn’t quite fit the Jacob of the messy shack and creaky chair (didn’t you visualize him as more of a Bruce Dern guy back then?), well, it only ends once and everything that happens before that is just progress

007.
Something to remember!

I cried like a bitch. Not because of Izzie. (I saw her death coming a long time ago)...but because of my 007. I didn't see that coming----at ALL!

As for LOST. Ugh.
I wasn't shocked.
Juliet is a selfish wench. That's all I'm sayin.
