Season 3 Countdown... One More Day!

at . Comments

A little more than one day!

That's all that stands between now and the beginning of Season 3 of Grey's Anatomy. If you're like us, and you probably are if you're reading the Insider right now, you can't wait to find out what happens when the all-new episode, "Time Has Come Today" airs Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern.

According to the plot summary on ABC's official site, the doctors at SGH must help Izzie cope with the loss of Denny and her decision to quit the program.

Meredith, of course, must decide what the future holds after her liaison with Derek. Addison is going to find out about it sooner or later, meaning plenty of soul-searching is in her future.

The Chief, meanwhile, is confronted by his wife, Adele, after spending the night in his office, and George seeks relationship advice -- but from an unlikely source. We could have told you most of that, but it's great that the premiere is upon us at last.

Good news for all of you who missed the Season 2 finale (or have been dying to see it a second time): As ABC's rigorous off-season Grey's Anatomy hype builds to a crescendo, you'll have a chance to catch the final two segments of the three-part finale from last May one final time before new episodes begin.

On Wednesday, from 9-11 p.m., "Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response" and "Losing My Religion" will air back to back.

This is a great opportunity to relive the suspense, drama and heartbreak. You can read our guides to these thrilling episodes by following the links above.

Be sure to check out the image gallery and complete list of quotes we compiled for "Deterioration..." along with even more quality pics and memorable quotes from "Losing My Religion."

For a recap of the entire series, tune in an hour before the season opener at 8 p.m. Eastern for "Complications of the Heart." This hour-long special features a compilation of important moments from the second season, as well as longer version of The Fray's Grey's Anatomy music video, "How to Save a Life." We can't wait -- for any of it!

Missed the final episode last year but saw it last night. I was so pissed that Gray gave it up again I threw the remote at the TV.


Like 5 hours and 40minutes count down here.
I can't wait to watch season 3 when i finished watching season 2. GA rocks.


So wait..the recap episode is starting at 8/7 central? Therefore the actual episode starts at 9/8 central? Because I don't think thats on the schedule? I'm confused.. But I CANNOT wait!!


o m g o s h !!! TOMORROW is the premiere!!! i absolutly can not wait! ha its gonna rock. but i do kinda agree with the other people up there sayin addie and finn already know .. it seems like they would .. but then they have to trust mer and der to not do something everytime they're both gone at the same moment. you know? but anyways yeah we got a bunch of people gettin together to watch it too .. we all love it in my family. me , my mom, my aunt, and my 2 cousins are in LOVE with the show. but i think i show the most dedication! haha i bought both the first and the second season the DAY they came out . i'm addicted. gosh it's lovely =] i lovveeeee grey's anatomy!! seriously. sorry i drag these comments on .. i just have a lot to say! so i guess i'll go .. because last years finale is coming on at 8 tonight! getting ready for tomorrow!


35hrs. and 28 mins. and counting. At my house it's turned into a premier party. 12 people in one room watching GA my husband is beside himself. But for a true GA fan the show rocks.


It's true Addison and Finn both should have figured it out. Remember right before Derek walked up Addy and Finn were both talking. Addy said I know it sounds crazy. Which makes me wonder what they were talking about.


I agree with Bonnie and Jen. Come on, she totally knows, ''God'', if she dosen't know, man thats just sad and mess up. I can't wait to Thursday, I know its going to be good.


I agree with Bonnie's post - I thought Addison was smart enough to have it sorted out. She So Knows.
Can not wait for Thursday night.


I thought Addison already figured out that Meredith and Derek hooked up. It's very subtle, but when McDreamy acts all uncomfortable when Meredith walks by with Izzie et al, you can see Addison's expression change - like she's just put two and two together. And why does she walk away with the chief instead of hanging around with Derek after everyone else leaves? She's already figured it out, in my book at least.


where did you get that last picture?


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.
