let start talking about 10x05 episode of Grey's Anatomy: it started with Stephanie's enthusiasm about meeting Jackson's mom, she wore a tight green shirt that immediately attracted Jackson, he couldn't resist to kiss her. The moment when Catherine Avery opened the door and found them sleeping together increased our suspence and curiosity. Our tought was:"OMG poor Stephanie, what Catherine will think of her?". The scene ended with Stephanie's words: "I don't think she liked my shirt". Then Catherine confirmed our tought treating her badly all the time, Jackson tried to defend her but she wouldn't listen to reasons even if Richard tried to convince her. Despite of all humiliations Stephanie was very patient and she fighted for her love until the end. In this episode we loved Jackson's behaviour because he showed a lot of maturity knowing discern between the mother and girlfriend without creating conflicts among the two most important women of his life.
The last scene at Joe's bar was something brilliant. Stephanie went to Catherine pretending to respect her dignity, her speech was effective, she explained the fact that she wasn't like the majority people of her generation who didn't understand that the place where having sex said a lot about where they thought themselves and that much of the work she has done to give fairness to women, particularly women of color, it might seem totally wasted work. The most emotional words were: "Meeting Jackson's mother meant something to me... I care about him". The final surprise was Jackson coming to Joe's bar and choosing to sit next to her instead of his mother.
Sorry for the late and many compliments first to the actors Jesse and Jerrika, then to the writer of the ep and of course to the best creator Shonda Rhimes ;)
