Tonight: From a Whisper to a Scream, Don't Stand So Close to Me

by at . Comments

In the last Thursday before new episodes return (finally), ABC will be showing the terrific "From a Whisper to a Scream" tonight at 9 p.m. EST.

Originally airing on Thanksgiving night, this was - in the Insider's opinion - the best episode of Season 3 to date. The primary story line revolves around the poor health of George's father, and tension rising regarding the secret of Burke and Cristina. It is an hour of intense drama even more emotive than the usual Grey's Anatomy fare, and certainly worth a second viewing. There's also the first signs of a spark between Addison and Alex (Addex).

You can view our episode guide by following the link above, and use this link to view our image gallery. We also have compiled a list of music (with lyrics) from the episode, and as always, assembled a list of memorable quotes. For you fans who love a good debate, our staff's weekly Round Table discussion is also worth a read.

Tonight: From a Whisper to a Scream, Don't Stand So Close to Me

Following "From a Whisper to a Scream," another episode will air at 10. We believe this will be "Don't Stand So Close to Me," the most recent episode. It's a good opportunity to catch up before new episodes return. Be sure to check out our pictures, list of quotes and collection of music from that episode.

Enjoy, and get ready for new episodes to return next week!

Hi there! I'm wondering if you can help me. I heard a song which was played on a trailer for Grey's Anatomy. It was for series 3 and I think it's the 5 one of that series. The trailer was showed on Living TV about a month ago in the UK and since I heard it, I've been searching everyday on the net trying to find out the song.
Sometimes up to six hours. Here 's a link to the trailer which I found on youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=5Oo... If you find out what this song is I'll be soooo so so happy. I know you don't know me and you probably don't care, but I really need to know this song it's so beautiful and I want it so badly : ( Please help. Vanessa

Hi Felicia. I am wondering too about Richard and Ellis. I was hoping that the medical research trial that Derek got Ellis into would help her, at least buy her a little more time. I think they were in love, too. We don't know that whole story yet, and I would hate to have Richard leave the show before we explored that. From what I understand they were in love and had a very hot and heavy affair. She left Thatcher but he could not bring himself to leave Adele. I think he probably thought they could just go on having an affair, but Ellis wanted more than that. So when he didn't leave Adele, Ellis moved away causing Richard's alcoholism. It just seemed so sad to me that he was seeing her again and then stopped abruptly. She doesn't understand and is reliving the whole end of the affair all over again. It broke my heart for Meredith when her mother told her she should never have had a kid. Even when you know your mother is in her own little world, that has to have been brutal to hear. Of course it could be Ellis who dies. That would open the path for Meredith to explore a relationship with her father and his new family. I don't think we have seen the last of the Thatcher Grey family including the sister away at medical school. I love Meredith and Cristina's friendship because they both are missing that loving relationship they should have with their mothers and neither have a father's love to fall back on. I think that need is part of what they recognize in each other and a part of their bond. So looking forward to next Thursday.

Burke Backer you don't offend anybody and with your skill of posting comments maybe you should be on the GA staff. Here's a thought which came to me after reading your comment. If Adele does die then what other reason would Richard have to retire. It would be an emotional storyline which would open up so many others. Like Richard seeing Ellis more and coping with her disease (I can't spell it and the grammer police might be watching LOL) and finding out what it was like for them so many years ago. I feel like they were really in love. Burke and Cristina have a lot more trials to over come at this point and being chief would really make that difficult to over come I believe. I noticed on another web site that at least 2 of the up coming episodes are going to be in 2 parts. That should also be interesting. But now were down to 4 long days instead of 6 long weeks. I just see so many possibilities it's unreal because I have never been into a show like this and I hate to think of it ever ending.

Hi Felicia. Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope that I don't offend people on this website, because I really do enjoy most all of the people here most all of the time. As for your question, I really wouldn't mind at all if Burke were not Chief even though I know it is what he wants. He is still pretty young for all of that responsibility. Like you, I hope that Richard stays. I agree that the writers often try to throw us for a loop with the hints and speculation and even mixing up the clips in the previews to make it hard to predict. I still think that Adele might be the one to die making it not necessary for Webber to retire yet. I know everyone is thinking that it will be George's dad, but I have a feeling he will be the one who dies and then comes back from the dead that the spoilers are talking about. If he does retire, it doesn't really sound like Webber, though, to bring in someone else. He has been grooming Burke for years to take his place when he retires and he seems like a pretty loyal person. I don't think he will change his mind from this one incident. He has had years of proving himself to the chief and did a great job while Webber was recovering from brain surgery. I have no idea what will actually happen. But that's what I think for what it is worth. Honestly, as long as Burke and Cristina both stay on the show and stay together as a couple, I can take anything else the show throws at them (and by proxy, me). What do you think?

Burke Backer you are one of the nicest people on here. I read alot of the comments you leave and you are so open minded. You can tell when the show stresses you out. But I have to share a thought with you that came from my best friend and you won't like it Im sure. She said that they will probably throw us for a loop. The idea that they probably won't make Burke or Derek chief but bring somebody else in. Is that even possible I can't even imagine. But I stil have my doubts about Richard even retiring. I'd like your thought on it thank you.

Hi Ashlynn (now GA-Faithful). I like your new name, too. I know you are right, it takes patience, but look what they are doing to Alex and Addison. I thought it would take patience to get Alex and Izzie back together and now there is a whole fan base for an Alex Addison relationship. I just don't want that to happen to Burke and Cristina because I think they really love each other and when you find that it shouldn't just be thrown away. I am running out of patience just from the long hiatus. I hope they don't make us wait too long once the new episodes of the show begin again. About your posts not going through, if you write to the greysanatomyinsider staff, they can sometimes fix it, although I like your new name.

By the way since it won't list me under my name Ashlynn H. I guess I am now GA-Faithful. Burke Backer I still look forward to your comments they are always well written.

It hasn't been posting my comments so I'll try changing my name. I still have high hopes because she got on the elevator. I have been disapointed that they really havn't been in the previews that I have seen. It looks like he did have surgery again. Hang in their Burke Backer my other favorite couple got back together and I have the same hopes for Burke and Cristina. But remember Mer/Der it took a while. Patients and more Patients that's what it takes.

I honestly cannot bring myself to watch From a Whisper to a Scream again. It was physically and emotionally painful to watch it the first time around. Seeing my favorite couple angry and hurtful towards each other was not something that I enjoyed although the acting was outstanding. Both Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington gave brilliant performances as did others during that episode. I will watch the second hour though, because at least that episode gave me some hope that Burke and Cristina will mend and stay a couple. I am past ready to find out what is going to happen next and really think that this hiatus has been way too long.

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.
