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.

and I am wearing a long sleeve "GREY" shirt underneath my Team Meredith Tshirt....lol


MEREDITH: "The reason that I want you to have the surgery is because I have this hope, that in a year, two years or five, they're gonna have a breakthrough. They're gonna find a cure for Alzhiemer's, and you and I will have another chance. To get to know each other. You'll get a chance to know me, to see that I am not even remotely ordinary, so I wish you would have the surgery. But it's up to you Mom, it's your life."
It sure looks like this is going to happen in the next episode!


Maybe the title of next week show suggest that they'd need "Some Kind of Miracle"? The next one is called "Old Wounds" so, it could mean alot of things. Maybe Meridith healing....... The staff getting over Meridith's death......Burktina realizing something........Maybe a little Sloan/Sheppard confrontation? There are 88,521,000,000,000 different things that could happen, so who knows? But one thing I know is the fact Meredith is dead. We just all need to wait and see what Shonda decides to do with her in the next episode.


I can't believe I cried last night(a couple tears)…After Grey's I took a shower, I was at such a loss I conditioned my hair twice without realizing it and forgot to wash my face. It was on my mind soo much I fell asleep thinking about it and woke up thinking about it. Today is jeans day at work. I am wearing my Team Meredith tshirt today…I almost decided against it because the tshirt says Team Meredith and then there is a heart below it with wings…almost morbid


I also think Meredith will meet Ellis who dies while Meredith is dead. I only hope their scene will be a good and intense Grey's Anatomy style scene and not a typical I'm sorry and goodbye scene. I loved Patrick in the scene were Derek falls apart in the hallway, the rawness of that scene made my cry and I (almost) never do when watching TV because most of the time I don't feel it like the scene wants me to. But this time I did and it was a very powerful and beautiful scene. My guess is that this particular scene will get Patrick lots of nominations next season. He played it out superbly! Here is what I think, it's possible that by the end of the next episode Meredith is still dead. I am only saying is that because there is no episode scheduled for March 01, we have to wait until March 08 for the next episode after next week's three-episode-arc conclusion and what a way to create a cliffhanger! Than again, the title for next week's episode does indicate that Meredith will be ok. I don't believe they will permanently kill Meredith, Shonda keeps talking about the journey Meredith has to take and her afterlife trip will account for that.


Okay by the time I finished typing...PINK MIST had the same thoughts. Great minds think a like! I'm with YOU!


I am PRAYING, and thanks to Izzie -believing, that Ellis will die and join the three deadies in the room whereupon Meredith and her Mom make nice, and have some closure to the painful past they have endured ..then her Mom urges her to fight for her not-so-ordinary life and and she does, but after having had great chats and messages from Denny and bomb-boy. This will take the whole episode and keep us on our toes for the whole hour (making it look like she's comfy up there) but there is no time in the afterlife and what will seem like hours or days up there will be mere minutes to her earthly mourners...
Ya! Ya! That's my perfect world...cuz man...I'm empty. Not a tear left in me -I'm sure of it.


I have to admit, if they keep Mer dead, I won't watch anymore. She is one of the solid characters on the show. I like the idea about Ellis dying & being there with Denny, Dylan & her & letting her survive. Would be great.


so i heard that it could be olivia. that the pregnant girl is olivia. but i don't think that would make sense. she didn't even seem pregnant at all like 2 weeks ago. and i know that they haven't been away for several months. i just wanted to say that i think alex is becoming such a better person. the time when he put the pictures up made me ball. idk. i really don't be;ieve the whole "other life" thing


ok. so Mer can't die. i think that if the show created an afterlife like environment then that would be just way to fake. and i like the idea that ellis dies and talks to mer but that would be way to off. if they had enough time to have surgery and then to have her die then that means that they all stopped working on mer. the timing would be off and mer would have to be dead for like at least 2 hours.


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.
