I know we're just four episodes into the new season, but I'm finding the very large cast a distraction. I feel like there's something missing from the show and it's not for lack of characters. Suddenly everyone seems to have been paired off with another character. Alex & Jo Miranda & Ben Richard & Catherine Jackson & April Owen & Amelia Meredith & Nathan (Maggie) Leaving just Arizona, Andrew & Stephanie single. Just lately, it seems the focus is on relationships and not so much about friendships and working colleagues. With 15 main characters and therefore not much space for recurring of special guest characters. According to Wiki, there's now only one recurring character in Catherine. Isaac Cross has been taken off that list Does the show need another shooter ?
