Grey’s Anatomy’s Groundbreaking Episode Shows Detailed Look At Rape Kit Exam

Published

on

Grey’s anatomy latest episode “Silent All These Years” that was aired Thursday night, had received tons of praise from fans after showing an extensive detailed look at the procedure that is done to rape victims during the rape kit exam.

The episode focused on a rape victim survivor called Abby, who comes to the hospital with a scar on her face. She is taken care of by Jo who later on, discovers signs of abuse all over the patient’s body. Giving the history of Jo’s abusive relationship with her husband, she jumps to the conclusion that the woman is being physically abused by her husband.

However, the patient shortly reveals that she was attacked and raped after a night out in which drinking occurred, and for that reason, she doesn’t want to report it. Fearing the usual blaming and judgments that are usually set against rape victims.

“We all know if I do that kit, it ends up in the back of some police station, ignored for years, while I sit there wondering when the bomb will go off, waiting to see if a jury of my peers will believe a woman who wore a skirt a few inches too short, who had a few cocktails too many at a bar last night after having a fight about laundry with her husband,” Abby emotionally declared when the doctors asked her to do the kit exam.

“And you know the tequila I drank will make it my fault, and whoever did this to me, whatever he drank, that’ll be his excuse,” she added.

The revelation, her words, the pain in her eyes, all portrayed what women actually go through everyday.

fortunately, Jo was able to talk her into taking the exam, encouraging her to speak up, convincing her that what happened is and never will be her fault.

After the kit is administered, all the female doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial line the hallway of the hospital, as Abby is wheeled into surgery, silently offering their solidarity and support in what has been one of the most powerful episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. 

“Making scenes like this is what Shondaland is all about,” Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted on Friday. “So proud.”

The powerful scene of the detailed rape kit exam almost didn’t make it to the episode, Shonda Rhimes reveals that she has fought with ABC channel to keep the scene; as it is a moment that should be witnessed by all as it is n accurate treatment of sexual assault survivors.

The creators worked with RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, in order to make the content and language of the episode as accurate and sensitive as possible; which was indeed successful and touched millions of viewers.

Rumors had it that Robert Pattinson will play the next Batman and just yesterday Warner Bros. confirmed the news.

Earlier on May 16, Variety reported that Pattinson has been in an ongoing negotiations for the part of Batman and just yesterday the studio has closed a deal with previous Twilight actor to play the role of Batman.

What a transformation, don’t you think? From a vampire loved by teens, to a bat loved by millions of all ages!

Matt Reeves’ upcoming superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021. While the Pre-production is set to start this summer.

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “The Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.

While some were excited upon hearing the news, others weren’t quite so pleased, asking questions like whether or not the new Batman will sparkle…

 

Well, we can’t really blame them because the image of Pattinson glowing in the sun is one we can’t really just forget about. Twilight was a hit when we were teenagers, but we eventually grew out of it. So will we be able to take him seriously for the role?

Guess we will just have to wait and see!

If you haven’t yet watched the latest episode of GOT then don’t through with this article, because spoilers lie ahead!

Even though episode 5 aired days ago, people still don’t seem to get over what happened during this horrific episode. They surely can’t accept that the breaker of chains turned mad, and ruined everything for us.

Now, people are taking their anger to a whole new level, where a new Change.org petition is circulating from a Night King–loving fan named Dylan D, asking HBO to remake the ENTIRE season ‘with competent writers’ instead of Thrones ShowrunnersDavid Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

“David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e., the books) to fall back on,” Dylan’s call to action reads. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

The petition has been up for less than a week now and it’s already gotten almost 278,135 signatures from equally annoyed fans!

Here the link for the petition, for all the angry fans out there who are demanding the same!
