Discuss "Drowning On Dry Land"

by at . Comments

Amazing. Every time we think Grey's Anatomy can't raise the bar of intense drama any higher, it manages to exceed expectations. Part II of this three-part extravaganza was every bit as good as promised - and left many unanswered questions, as we have come to expect.

When I saw that Addison will be leaving the show to star in her own spin off I thought that she would be the one to die, but then I realized that if she is staring in a Gray's spin off she cant die (It takes me a minute to process things in the morning). Only one more day until the conclusion, Yippy! Someone has to know who dies. This is Hollywood for goodness sakes; nothing is ever kept a secret.

Okay i for 1 feel so sorry for derek. First his wife cheats on him and now the love of his life is dying poor guy! One of my favorite parts that really got to me was when Addison said " Come On Meredith, don't do this." and when alex told Addison that he would notice if she went missing was another part that i totally loved. I couldnt breath threw have the episode!!!! Great show!!

JOYCE...I totally agree with you. Having Ellis die would be taking such an easy way out of this enormous build-up. I love Meredith; she's on of my favorite characters and I would mourn her death profoundly, but by the same token, I think killing her off, or another pivotal character, would be huge, bold and shocking. I just think that simplifying an emotinally gripping two episodes by tying it all up neatly with Meredith being revived and Ellis (the character most of us are emotinally invested in the least) dying would almost "dumb down" the show, and treat the viewers like shallow humans who can't handle the unexpected and shocking details of life. I suspect Burke will actually die. I'm just a bit afraid that took a mile when GA gave him an inch.

I think that Ellis will die while Mer is in her little heaven thing or whatever. Then they will see eachother and Meredith will get more closure than she would if she had been alive and Ellis had died.

I agree with everyone that it will be Ellis who dies, but I hope we are all wrong. The writers said that it will be shocking and I think that this is predictable. While I love all the characters except Izzie, and would hate to see one of them die, I also want to be shocked. My opinion of the show will change if what we all think is the truth is the actual truth. Come on Shonda - take a big chance. No one will really stop watching, it's all just emotions talking.

Bobbyjoe I completely agree with you abut alex hanging the photos---since I always focus on alex, I thought he has really come full circle with this episode. first of all, when he was looking around the clinic, seeing alll the people crying for their loved ones (and especially the husband of the dead pregnant girl) it was like seeing alex's heart laid open for the first time. also, it was right after that when he went and told addison that he would notice if she went missing. I cannot wait for them to get together!! I think addison has the purest heart of all the women--she tries so hard to not be unkind. I would love it if Izzie and Sloan comforted each other (picture those two bodies naked and in close quarters!! wow!)--when he flips out over alex and addison, izzie can distract him. i'm all for sex in the workplace.
LOVED this episode, and I am praying that meredith sees her mom in the deadzone and decides she doesn't want to get stuck with her for all eternity until she finishes saying everything she wants to say!! shonda, you are amazing!!!!

OOOMMMGG i have read that meredith will be revived and her mother will die.... i hope really that is true.. not because of ellis grey but i dont want meredith to die...

OMG I am so glad I found people who are like me. I cried for the entire second half of last night's show. I could not get it together! I also couldn't get over the look on Dereks face when he carried her out of the water. I am hopelessly in love with both HIM and the couple of Mer/Der. If something happens to them, I will die. I cried harder everytime they showed Derek because he was so heartbroken. Come on Mer, you have to pull through!

Meredith cant be dead!!! It sort of seems like alot of the things that happen with the show somehow revolve around her in a way.Plus whos anatomy would it be if she died and it would be really fake if they had her in the afterlife for the next seasons. They would lose their fans from the show too. Which wouldn't be good for the show so I am hoping that the others above are right about her waking up. Someone is suppost to die next episode and I think that it will be Ellis.But the whole thing with Meredith and Derek's reactions just made me cry.

Meredith cannot die. It is GREY'S Anatomy after all. Plus, it would be TV suicide. I loved seeing Denny, except for the reason why I saw him again. I absolutely loved the end of the episode with everyone. Especially George looking so sad. Was it foreshadowing, however, when he said that everyone dies?

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.
