Superstition Ain't the Way

at . Comments

So Stevie Wonder claims, anyway. We beg to differ, at least in regards to the Grey's Anatomy episode being aired Sunday night is awfully good.

Death plays a particularly large role in "Superstition" as the surgeons lose four patients early, then are faced with another quartet of compelling cases shortly thereafter. Worried that the hospital myth of deaths coming in waves of four will manifest itself again, all the idiosyncracies of the staff come out as the fight the odds, each other, and their own inner fears.

From Alex and Izzie sparring over her feelings for Denny, to George battling self doubt, to Burktina debating the merits of superstitions, it's not to be missed. For a full breakdown, you can read our thorough episode guide by following the link above. Then be sure to take a look at our list of memorable quotes from the show, as well as our image gallery of over 50 pics.
