    Did Derek Shepherd (Mcdreamy) dying ruin the dynamic of Grey's Anatomy?

    The show is surrounded around Meredith and Derek’s relationship and without the core characters it’s hard to stay engaged. With Derek out of the show, the basis of the plot seems demolished. Should the show have ended after his death? Do you agree with how the plot continues after he dies? What makes him so great that people would question whether or not the show should have ended after his death?

    • As someone who still watches the show, I think the dynamic definitely changed after his death. From the very first episode, it was all about him and Meredith. I don't think the show should have ended just because there still are a lot of other characters. For me, the way he was written off was horrible. It felt so rushed and I hated it. For example, Meredith pulled the cord before anyone got the chance to say goodbye, something I don't think would actually happen. I also did not like how the show skipped ahead a year. It was just rushed and I don't think Shonda wrote him off in a proper way. I think just his and Meredith's relationship is a reason people would question if the show should have kept going. Theirs was epic, something we have been following since the beginning. – diehlsam 9 years ago
    • The show has undergone so many changes through its seasons that this moment wasn't the show "jumping the shark" because it has jumped the shark so many times (and still I keep watching!). I think that the show simply has a different purpose than it did in that first season, where clearly Derek/Meredith's relationship was central. Now, it is focusing on the ensemble cast more, and so it could, in theory, exist past Meredith even being on the show (after all, the "Grey" in Grey's Anatomy doesn't need to be Meredith--the hospital is named that now, too). I think this is where the show is attempting to head, although whether that is a good idea, I'm not so sure. – cray0309 8 years ago

    My personal experience with the eras of the modern comic book movies, was that they were my childhood. These movies were my inspiration. I was brought up with the archetypes of the hero and villains and anti- hero. These films not only told actions story within the journey of the hero, yet they were aspects of demonstrating history of the 21st century. Today my favorite thing to do is to attend midnight showings of these comic book films. I am a strong supporter of the film industry and I wish the best for producers and writers so that the epidemic of ” superhero fatigue” for it not to come to pass.

    The Three Eras of The Modern Comic Book Movie

    I agree that comic books are made to inspire us, by knowing that a character’s death is irrational. Today when we watch a superhero film we always react to the death of a beloved superhero or even villain. The issue with this is that most of hesitate to cry to early after a death of a character. Because scenes afterwards we are left with mixed feelings when our freshly dead character is brought back to life. Yet the comic book/film industry wouldn’t be as successful without this aspect in the common journey of a hero. We (readers) need our heroes to be immortal or else what would we have to look forward to in these great stories!

    Death as Inspiration in Comics

    Personally I have always been a fan of Harley Quinn. Before reading this article, I never questioned why I was so intrigued in her character. Yet now I agree with what this article has to say, and it justifies why I admire Harley Quinn so much. The DC writers and artists have done a very impressive job with her characters story line over the years. She has transformed the ideals for women villains. As well, created a strong empowerment for feminism in the world of comic books. Although artist still likes to put her in small to a little amount of clothing, I believe we (the readers) should appreciate that Harley Quinn is an independent woman.
