Tonight's Episode Preview: What I Am

at . Comments

Tonight's episode, "What I Am," will feature a number of intriguing story lines as our beloved characters -- and guests -- strive to figure out who they are, what they're made of, and where they're going in life.

Dr. Yang
Last week, we saw Derek and Finn battle for Meredith's affections. This week, we'll see Derek and Mark (who we know has joined the SGH staff in some capacity) spar professionally as their opinions differ regarding the right course of treatment for a burn victim. Intense.

There's also tension between Cristina (pictured) and Dr. Burke, who she pushes to get better as fast as possible.

The doctors treat a salesman who wants to get back into his routine so he doesn't lose his edge. Addison works with a pregnant woman named Rebecca who may require a C-section (an epidural is not an option, apparently), and the circumstances are such that Mrs. Dr. Shepherd comes to doubt her own skills as a surgeon.

Most intriguingly, as we saw briefly in last week's previews, Meredith has a medical emergency of her own and is apparently worried she's pregnant. Whether that's actually the case or not, we'll have to wait

and see.

Then to top it all off, there's the mysterious arrival of guest star Fred Ward (right) who appears out of nowhere to see Izzie, and who we believe plays Denny's father.

Should be exciting! As usual, we'll have our exclusive episode recap up right after the show, and compile our list of quotes, image gallery, and music guide as quickly as we can.

Check back with us often!

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!! i seriously cried last night .. as soon as derek said he was dropping out .. my jaw dropped. that pisses me off so bad .. he says he loves her .. makes her choose between two fine men .. drops out only when shes on the edge of choosing. and she lets finn out .. come on now it's just mer again. and you know mcdreamy isn't gonna just leave her alone. it seems like he's playing with her feelings .. then again it seems like he's just doing it to save her from getting hurt. it's a really hard situation to understand .. but anyways .. derek better apologize to meredith and they better get back together. seriously. comments on the rest of the show tonight. the cristina and burke situation .. okay. i think that cristina should have SHUT her mouth for once tonight. it seemed like she could've seen that she was getting on preston's nerves. and i mean it would bother me if i knew i wasn't 100% ready. i mean for burke even 96% isn't good enough. i think he'll end up cracking on her. maybe. on the whole denny's dad thing .. i'm kinda disappointed in that. denny didn't seem like the kind to block out his family .. i mean especially in a situation like he was in. he wanted izzie's comfort it seems like he would've wanted his family around. but i think his dad pretty much deserved to talk to izzie. after all she was the girl that his son had fallen head over hills for. the callie and george lil circle. tonight george said the sweetest thing. i miss you. that's all he had to say! it's just the way he says it and how sincere he looks when he does. he has his ways. and what about callie and mark in the bar. HELLO! that was freakin hilarious. i bet next weeks will start with them two .. in callie's hotel room?! that wouldn't be too good. callie in on the whole mer/der/mark/addi thing. goodness that girl's a wild one! last but not least addi and mark. personally .. i think they should be together. cause the more they're not .. and the more derek has to spend with addison while he just dropped out on meredith .. i think he has potential to go back to addison. he hasn't signed the divorce papers yet .. or at least we haven't seen it. even if they decided their marriage was over .. he also said it was over a few times before if i remember correctly. and mark and addi have it .. i think they have the spark. i mean you can't just call anybody on a booty call across the country and they actually come. mark loves her and she wants to loves him .. the only people that don't know that yet are addi and mark. kind of like the whole merder thing. it's there. but thats all i'm going to say. time for work! sucks i know. but i just hope next week will work on the whole merder thing .. cause i was really pissed off for the rest of the show last night .. it wasn't as good knowing meredith and mcdreamy weren't together. even if they weren't on the damn screen! parden my language .. but i'll check back when i get off work. leave interesting comments!! byee ♥


I can't wait to see if it is Denny's father or just a friend of the family. I also read a rumor this is Finn's last episode. Has anyone else heard?


i KNOW, I saw that on a preview, where hey says this is from denny. i think it's his dad too, cuz why would her dad have a letter from denny?


I think Fred Ward is gonna show up as Denny's dad, I thought I saw that somewhere, that he has something for her of Denny's. I might be wrong, we'll see.


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.
