EVERYTHING'S COMING UP RAINBOWSTEVIE!
#EVERY LAST FREAKING THING I HAVE ASKED FOR ALL AT ONCE IN ONE GLORIOUS TWO-HOUR GREY'S-ANATOMY-SHOOTER-LOOSE-IN-THE-HOSP
Protective positioning! Protective positioning all over the goddamn place! Mitch/Jamie UST! Mitch/Jamie being an awesome sciencE-y team! Mitch taking a rifle butt to the stomach in a desperate lunge to stop her from being dragged off by African rebel forces! Jackson injuries! Abe fretting! Chloe crying over someone she loves being hurt! Dream Sequence Chloe to be there when Jackson wakes up so we can have that treat even though it's not physically possible for her to be there! Action Hero/Kid-Saving Jackson! Ray dying in a swift and violent manner! A bunch of other cool things!
AND DID I MENTION JAMIE AND MITCH KISSING BECAUSE I DON'T THINK I HAVE CAPITAL LETTERS LARGE ENOUGH TO SPELL OUT MY IMMENSE JOY.
Update: It has been two hours. I am only like 75% of the way through my celebratory squee. I only just finished going through the episode a second time with the aid of a pause button to let off blasts of squee in each highlight scene. All of which are Mitch/Jamie related this first time around, obviously. I especially like that we shot right past the 'oh crap not sure if more like daughter' step in the shipping timeline I proposed and went straight from protective posturing to mushy feelings. Well, mushy for Mitch, which mostly consists of admitting he has feelings, and they're because of Jamie's influence. LOOK AT YOU BEIN' ALL JEFF WINGER.
p.s. please only be Jeff Winger up to the season 1 Community finale)
Edit: 3 hours and 23 minutes of hootenannying. I think I'm finally ready to keep calm and...carry on with work.
