Grey Chatter: Heading Into the Light

at . Comments

It's hard to get past the fact that last Thursday's episode, "Drowning On Dry Land" ended with Meredith heading into the light, where she came face to face with Denny and Dylan. Because she's dead.

Denny said so, so it must be true.

Or is she?

Unfortunately, there's no way of knowing how this will turn out until we tune in Thursday. But it seems that all signs are pointing to Meredith Grey's demise. It certainly would make a shocking end to this three-part saga.

Rock Star!
But back to what we do know.

Izzie is a rock star on the ferry for saving the guy pinned under the car. But she's a little less than a rock star in the friend arena, after trash-talking Callie to George.

Besides, it wasn't the best timing, as Meredith lay dying in the other room, for Izzie to just blurt out her feelings like that.

As much as she dislikes Callie, Izzie is supposed to be George's best friend. Best friends are supportive and accepting, not judgmental. Izzie needs to let it go and find a way to be George's friend with Callie in the picture.

Alex, meanwhile, finally steps up and takes charge of the missing family member situation, snapping photos of all the patients and victims at the hospital. It took him a while to figure this out, but now that he has, maybe it will help give him a boost of confidence.

Plus, he saved a pregnant woman's life. That pretty much makes Alex the star of the last two episodes. It will be interesting to see how his relationship with this "Jane Doe" develops.

Cristina and Preston hit yet another hurdle as Burke has to face the best friend dilemma. Cristina tries to explain her attachment to Meredith, but the best she can come up with is a story involving dragging a dead body across the floor.

While absolutely hilarious and true, this only serves to upset Burke more, although Cristina didn't willingly compare their relationship to a corpse. It's quite likely that Cristina is going through many "firsts" right now, and she's unable to deal with them emotionally.

Dr. Yang has never really been close to people, and now she has not only a best friend but a fiancé as well. It's a little overwhelming to Cristina to realize how attached she is, and that these people mean something to her. Once she figures out what to do with these emotions, maybe she'll stop saying crazy things about dead bodies.

But now back to Meredith
. If she is dead, what does this mean for Derek? He's completely lost as to how to help her. His medical skills mean nothing now; he's banned from the room. All he can do is hope and pray and accept his friends' consoling.

If the miracle in the next episode (titled "Some Kind of Miracle") is for Meredith and she does come back to life, this could forever affect her relationship with Derek.

If he didn't know before, he knows now that he's lost without her. There's nothing like a brush with death to make you appreciate the special people in you life. But if Meredith is really dead... well, a lot of things around Seattle Grace will be changing.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
