What About Grey's Anatomy This Week?

by at . Comments
What About Getting Axed?We have good news and bad news.

Let's get the bad out of the way first. This Sunday, ABC is supplanting Grey's Anatomy with new romantic drama What About Brian. Gag. Have you seen the previews for this show? It looks cheese-tastic and not all that original, although the involvement of executive producer J.J. Abrams (of Lost, Felicity, and Alias) warrants some optimism. What About Brian stars Barry Watson as a 34-year old bachelor who's had a tough go of it with romance, while his friends (three couples) have all paired up. Now sure about Brian's prospects for love or ratings, but we'll have to wait and see.

Now for the good news. Grey's Anatomy will reclaim its time slot a week later, April 23, while Brian and his friends move to Monday. ABC lists an episode entitled "Under Pressure" on its schedule for the Sunday after next. Phew! We certainly didn't want to wait until April 30. So the question is, who's under pressure and for what? Some possibilities:

  • Meredith -- to quit whining.
  • Alex -- to quit being an ass.
  • George -- to get married (by Calli).
  • Denny -- by constricting blood vessels in his chest.

While we really like these ideas, we have been informed by a devoted fan that the episode will be a "recap" episode, akin to the "Straight From the Heart" special from earlier this season. A little disappointing but better than nothing. Feel free to comment with your thoughts just the same. Or, at the very least, take part on our poll (on the right), or our Caption Contest!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
