More on Tonight's Episode From Seattle

by at . Comments

Earlier this week, we talked a little about the Seattle ferries and their role in the three-part extravaganza that starts tonight with "Walk On Water." Here's some more dirt on the episode, courtesy of Seattle's KOMO-TV:

McDreamy On the Docks
This week's episode of the Greys Anatomy will put Seattle's Coleman Docks in the spotlight as the scene of a major disaster.

The Coleman Docks attract a fair share of tourists, but it's not the most exciting place in Seattle for locals. Naturally, Hollywood has concocted a totally different take on the Docks.

A storyline involving mass casualties and chaos at the Coleman Docks will unfold on Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy, and the doctors (including Dr. Shepherd, played by Patrick Dempsey, pictured) will come to the rescue.

"Some of it's going to be here on the ferry, and some of it's going to be here on the north holding lanes," said Jayne Davis, with the state ferry system.

The actors won't talk specifically about what happened, but the ferries will be the focus as the story involves a ferry collision with another vessel.

"They have an encounter with a deep draft freighter vessel, and the incident occurs," said Capt. Kelly Mitchell with the state ferry system.

The ferry system has trained for most disasters and admit the scenario, however interesting, is not likely to ever happen in real life.

"It is very highly improbable, because the vessel is not moving strictly on its own, because the vessel crew and bridge team have multiple radars that can track all commercial vessels," Mitchell said.

There was a lot of give-and-take before the scenes were shot, but as they say in show-biz, any publicity is good publicity.

"The film industry draws people to your city, or your attraction regardless of whether it's a not so pleasant topic," Davis said.

I thought I saw somewhere that Addison was riding one of the ferries to work.... maybe she was in the accident..... or i could just be imagining things. Also agree w/ bonnie and kathy... i want more mer/der time too!

I hope we get some Mer/Der time in this episode too. It sounds so exciting and Patrick looks hot in the above picture!

This is supose to be better than the bomb episode which they have never let me down yet. The only think is that there better be more Mer/Der time and no fighting.

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
