Tonight: Don't Stand So Close to Me

by at . Comments

Conjoined twins. Adult twins. It sounds a bit ER-like, but we have no doubt that the Grey's Anatomy writers and producers will turn this scenario into some compelling drama tonight.

Sexy McDreamyPresumably, the close-knit brothers must be separated, and Derek and Mark - once close-knit (and practically brothers, in Derek's words) themselves - will be forced to work together and perform a nearly-impossible operation.

It will be interesting to watch the parallels between the patients and these two surgeons, as well as how the relationships withstand such incredible stress.

It will also be interesting to monitor Derek's relationship with Meredith - but that goes without saying at this point.

We know that Dr. Hahn (Brooke Smith) will be back, and sooner or later, Mr. O'Malley has to have his surgery. When he does, odds are that she'll be performing it. As for Dr. Burke, he must deal with the fallout from his blow-up with Cristina and being outed in front of the Chief. How Miranda treats Dr. Yang after these developments reamins to be seen as well.

We'll have our episode guide, quotes, pictures and music list from the episode up as soon as we can. If this is half as good as "From a Whisper to a Scream," we're in for a treat this evening.

Well we were all kind of a little bit right. Burke helped duriing the crisis in the hospital room, but it was Cristina who learned the skills she needed by assisting Burke that came through in the operating room to help out Hahn. So both helped to save George's dad. I'm so glad that he didn't die. I can't be mad about anything tonight. Burke is still on the show. He was wonderful to George while his dad was going through the surgery, and that took courage to face George and compassion to stay with him while everyone else was with the cojoined twins, and to help him get through his dad's surgery. I loved that Burke realized every body responds differently to surgery and asked Derek to look at his shoulder again. I loved that Meredith got the other interns, other than George, to give Cristina a break. I love that the Chief got Bailey to understand how much the interns are learning from her even if they make mistakes. I loved that Cristina got on the elevator with Burke and Derek at the end. And, I love that Burke let her. That was the hope I was looking for to get through December.

another theory... maybe hahn will do the surgery while burke watches from the gallery.. she does indeed run into a problem, burke freaks because there is nothing he can do about it but hahn fixes it anyway... then it finally hits burke what he has really lost. respect. i agree mcbrookins though.. hahn is here for good i think that rivalry between burke and hahn will be fun to watch eg. 'you may have finished first in the class preston, but look whos head of cardio now'.. hehe.. so evil.

I like that scenario, McBrookins. I agree, and as long as he is still on the show I will enjoy watching his character evolve.

OK, Burke Backer, let's try this scenario, maybe Hahn is going to replace Burke as the main Cardio Surg, in light of his recent appointment to Chief. But, honestly Burke will change from this experience, it's just a question of which way is he going to bend..I doubt he will be let go of, that would be a huge mistake, he is a thread, the kind you don't pull on or the whole sweater unravels.. So don't pull on the string!! Chow

Thanks Purplemerder and McBrookins for giving Burke fans some hope out here. I'll be more generous to the Burke haters when I know for sure he is still on the show. Right now it is just really hurtful to know anyone is wishing for the very thing that I am most afraid of happening.

It's great to see Burke and Cristina evolve, I don't want to see anyone leave the show, just grow and blossom as characters..Burke isn't going anywhere, just interesting to find how the plot turns and twists.. George's dad can survive surgery and may even go into remission or survive a while with treatment. Enjoy the show !!!

You guys are really harsh. Burke is as important to this show as any other character, the most important to many of us. I can't believe anyone would want him to leave the show. It would leave a huge hole in the cast. I guess everytime someone does something we don't like we just boot them from the show. Let's see, I didn't like that Izzie cut the LVAD wire. Should she be gone? I didn't like that Derek slept with Addison when he was in love with Meredith. Should he be gone? I didn't like that Meredith slept with, oh how many guys was it? Should she be gone. I didn't like that George was a sniffling whiner after it didn't work out the night he slept with Meredith. Should he be gone? Addison cheated on Derek. Should she be gone? Alex slept with Olivia when he couldn't perform sexually with Izzie. He also killed a patient from a math error. Should he be gone? None of these characters are perfect. That's what makes the show relatable and enjoyable. I would never wish to have any of them removed because someone out there relates to and cares about each one. To wish him gone when you know others very much appreciate this character is just plain mean spirited. Hopefully Shonda has a bigger heart. Plus, I sure don't know that George's dad is going to die. I am hoping he will live through this surgery. His cancer doesn't look good, but there is no reason he should die from the heart surgery.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.

Meredith

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.
