Summary of Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 DVD Box Set
Grey's Anatomy follows the lives of surgical interns and residents at the fictional Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital as they gradually evolve into seasoned doctors with the help of their competent mentors. Every installment, typically, commences with a voice-over narrative from the series' protagonist, Meredith Grey, foreshadowing the theme of the episode. Each season tends to represent the physicians' fiscal year, with each completed year qualifying the residents at a level higher in the surgical field. The season will always end with a finale, typically involving a tragic event such as a death or character departure. Most installments revolve around the doctors' everyday lives as surgeons, but the show puts a broader coverage on their personal, rather than professional, lives. The series excludes typical hospital ethics, in an attempt to emphasize on character development. Although the physicians save lives, often through intricate surgeries, and strive to rid their patients of discomfort and illness, their preeminent motivation is customarily praise and competition.
The residents initially arrive at the hospital each morning and dispute with one another over who will attain a certain patient. A hospital superior is in charge of assigning cases, often traversing to tense feelings between the residents and superiors. Episodes migrate back and forth from the doctors interacting with their patients, and with their co-workers. Once assigned a case, each doctor diagnoses the patient, with the help of their attending physician, which usually leads to surgery. The surgeons often form personal connections to their patients, with a patient often conveying a message to their doctor which unintentionally relates to their private life. The show displays the growth of relationships between the doctors, either friendly or sexual, often stemming to a clash between their personal lives and their professional. At the conclusion of each episode, Grey delivers another voice-over, typically contrasting or following up on her primitive one.
