SPOILERS AHEAD

As someone who is wholeheartedly glued to medical dramas, "Grey's Anatomy" has been one of my dearest companions for over a decade. Each episode is filled with endless suspense, an outburst of emotions, passionate romance, and most importantly, the doctors' compassion toward each of their patients.

The two-hour season 17 premiere portrayed the larger-than-life COVID-19 scenario and how Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) along with her colleagues are working on combating it. Again, we are exposed to the mental and physical pain associated with COVID-19 and how the doctors are working day and night to combat the pandemic affecting people of all ages. However, the end of the season premiere has shaken everyone off their feet and has left everyone in complete awe!

This premiere brought back our beloved Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), who has been dead since 2015. It chronicled the breath-taking reunion of two immortal lovers in a completely McDreamy beach sequence. It is brilliant how the makers have used the beach as one of the most pivotal locations apart from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital because we all need some rejuvenation mentally.

I love the fact that the makers have decided to focus on the ongoing pandemic and on the lives of the frontline healthcare workers who have dedicated their lives to public health. Watching the season premiere filled me with uplifting hopes for a better tomorrow, even though it may seem so far away.

On top of that, the premiere began with Meredith Grey's voice over while sitting at the beach bringing up "disaster ethics" which is what she had learned during residency to best prepare for surprises.

Meredith Grey is indeed a woman of immense caliber and substance. Be it as an ER doctor, friend, lover, wife, mother, or human being, she slays all the way and always inspires me to the core! But, the premiere opens up with her struggle to manage the catastrophic COVID-19 situation due to insufficient amounts of PPE kits. Hopefully, her learned lessons will eventually empower her to most efficiently tackle all the challenges she will encounter both professionally and personally.

Also, the overwhelming cases of patients and the subsequent deaths have left Grey completely drained, ultimately leading to her passing out in the middle of the Grey Sloan Memorial parking lot. It is during this period of unconsciousness when we find her back at the beach hearing the uncanny, yet extremely soothing voice of none other than Derek Shepherd.

This awe-inspiring and serene reunion of this magical couple has appeared as the torchbearer of hope that we all have been searching for forever since the pandemic began.

Just like me, I'm sure all the devoted fans received their dose of optimism and the renewed elixir of life, simply by watching this unexpected reunion!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

13669

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
