Grey's Anatomy > Shonda Rhimes Shares Her Thoughts On "Drowning On Dry Land" > Comments Page 2
Burke Backer, I just LOVE what you wrote about Burke. We feel the same about him. I'm going to print this out and post it in my closet mirror, if you don't mind. Reading that would always make me smile.
wow.....Burke Backer, what you wrote is so moving.
I have only recently started watching grey's and I love Burke and cristina together.They are so cute and Burke is smoking hot.
Please do not worry about Burke leaving the show.
I am sure that it will not happen.They will not mess with the on-screen chemistry when the show is such a success.I do not know much about the controversy but I heard that he was back to work.They might have worked things out.
About his breaking up with cristina, we do not know that it will happen for sure.It is all just pure speculation.
IW is really lucky to have such loyal fans.
Hope that you can enjoy the show on thursday.
BB, I agree. I became addicted to the show (seriously) because of Burke and Cristina, and I don't watch primetime television. My boss even knows not to ask me to stay late on Thurs.
I was just watching the "I am Preston Burke" episode and kept watching the scene when he tells Cristina he loves her. I think the reason he tells Cristina that he knows her is because she is so much like him: ambitious, career focused, stubborn, controlling, etc. They've changed each other, and he is so in love with her, and she with him. It just took Cristina longer to stop fighting it because she didn't want that kind of attachment. They have come a long way since Season 1. Cristina was definitely the one controlling the relationship then, and Burke took over in Season 2. Now they have to learn to compromise. Even when they get married, they'll still have disagreements, but as long as it resolved at the end, I would be okay with it.
Even though Shonda doesn't talk much about our coupl
I really hope you are right, MJ. On BangsAnatomy there is a thread about why we love Burke. I've been thinking about this alot. Why do I love Preston Burke so much? Why would it be devastating to me if this character were no longer on GA? So, I started thinking about it and this iis what I know.
I first got interested in him because he was so skilled and competent as a surgeon. I loved the way he walked and talked and backed up the talk with action. I admired him because he was the best surgeon at Seattle Grace with the record for the lowest mortality rate. I started to really like him when I realized that he also cared about his patients. Each time he talked to a patient or the patient's family you could tell that when he operated that it was a person to him and that it mattered if they lived.
Infatuation started when he was honest about his own mistakes and shortcomings like when he confessed to having left the towel in the woman's chest cavity and stood up for Me
BB, don't worry. If Burke was leaving, the media would be all over it, especially the entertainment shows.
The spoiler is bullshit, anyone can edit those things to write whatever they want. All you have to do is register and I'm pretty sure you can edit it to say whatever. An organ donation wouldn't make any sense in Meredith's case. Hypothermia makes your whole body slow down and basically preserve itself, you wouldn't need new organs! That doesn't make any sense.
SHONDA!!! Meredith can't be dead its not allowed! i was in tears the whole time!! NOT ALLOWED!!!
Zee, I so agree. The relationship between Burke and Cristina, and Cristina and Mer are on different levels. Mer is Cristina's best friend/sister. When she's annoyed at Burke or they have a disagreement, Mer is the person she goes to for advice or as a listening board, and Burke is the love of her life, the person that comforts her, and shows her how to love. There are things you can talk to you best friend about that you don't feel you can talk to you boyfriend or spouse about.
Also, Ellis will be the one that dies. (The ratings are great, they're not letting any of the main characters go). In addition to seeing Denny and the other guy (can't remember his name), I think she's going to see her mother, too. And, hopefully when Mer is better, she'll have a chance to make peace with her mother before she goes, otherwise we may end up watching a depressed Mer. The question in my mind is why didn't she just swim to safety; does she not know how to swim, or was she giving up?
I am not having any trouble getting on the forums...the only problem i had was Thursday night when the whole site was down.
I have doubt concerning this spoiler.Why would Meredith require organ donation?She needs to be rewarmed and it can be done.Maybe Elis dies and meets her while she is chating with Denny and Dylan.They will have a reunion and she will come back.Thus Elis saves her.It does look like something that would happen in six feet under but I will not be surprised if they go that route.
Burketina's fight seems so "forced".It was as if the writers wanted them to fight for the sake of fighting.
I would not be surprised if they broke up.They may have initially planned to have these 2 married at the end of the season but after the whole CG fiasco, things may have changed.
It is sad because, many viewers, myself inculded do not really care about the backstage drama.
Anyway, maybe we should all just like Izzie believe in the good, that Burke and Cristina will make it.
I cannot get on the forums, can anyone else?
I think that Burke and Christina may break up. It could also be that Derek gets chief! That would be awesome. I hope that the new Belgian Grey gave comes true!
BB--I feel so bad for you to have to go through this stress over IW. I personally will jump for joy if Burke-Cristina just make it through the end of Season 3 intact. Even a wedding doesn't seem as important anymore as just keeping them together and on the show. I am rooting for him and for you.
Burke Backer--I am going out of my mind with these technical problems on this site. After one of the most intense, possibly pivotal, GA episodes yet, none of the regulars are here or on the forums. None! There are a few newbies on Bang but I mostly have been talking to myself. Please get this fixed tomorrow people---I need my friends back!!!
Oh boy, that is a MAJOR SPOILER in the site Belgian Grey gives the link for. I almost wished I didn't read it, but it makes alot of sense as far as Meredith. It really worries me what it says about Burke. I am going to try to stay away from spoilers after the next episode...maybe.
Hi Rose, I still can't get to the forums. When I click on forums it takes me to the previews of Walk on Water. I miss chatting on the new Burktina forum.
Thanks Belgian Grey. Now I am worried all over again. Of course the blow to Burke could be that someone else is named Chief or that his heart patient, Ellis Grey, dies. I really hope that is the connection. I have never for a minute thought that Meredith would die, but I am always scared to death that ABC/Touchstone will give in to the people calling for Isaiah's head and that we will lose Burke. I know rationally everyone who has said that the death won't be Burke's is right. But until I see him live through it I'm going to worry. I also don't want Cristina to break up with him. I have invested over two years in their relationship and that would be just too sad. They are so good together. They are both so unconventional, I can't imagine either one of them with anyone else. I don't like that there were reshoots for this coming episode. I don't like that the spoilers say that originally there wasn't going to be a death this coming week and now there is. Reshoots could mean
According to TV.com there is no new episode on March 1st and new ones start back on March 8th.
Okay, first of all, I did not hear anywhere that there was going to be a break! Why would there be another break?! I was so excited that it's been all new episodes since it came back in January. Why does it seem like last season there were so many more episodes then this season?! Anyone know how long this one is going to be? Hopefully just a week!
Secondly, I agree with all you people that have commented that Meredith will be revived and there will be some kind of connection between her and Ellis and then Ellis will eventually die. That seems the most logical. You don't kill off the title character of the best television drama in the U.S. mid-season. You just don't. Similar to the O.C, Marissa died and the show died with her. And she wasn't even the TITLE character.
I also think that Cristina will be the one to save Meredith. There's such a strong bond between the two of them and it's easy to see even if the writers don't obviously show it.
I was also heartbroken to see Derek in t
Any way to find out for how long Pickens signed the contract with GA? I know that Kate Burton is very buzzy and probably does not have time free to dedicate long hours to GA anymore. I can't take the waiting anymore. On a french forum they analyzed every picture of the promos this gives you an idea on what an impact this show has. Also I can't understand why nobody knows how long the break will last some say 2 months this does not seem reasonable. Can anyone explain to me why there are breaks (except for the holiday season of course that I understand) we don't have that in Europe except for the summer time. Thanks
I just had a revelation guys! I was reading somewhere, that yes someone died this week, someone will die next week also, but only one of those deaths will stick. And I don't think that one will be Meredith.
What if, because of the stress of trying to save Meredith, the Cheif has a heart attack and maybe he's the one that dies, or Ellis dies. One of 'em will die and Mer will be fine...
Izzie believe's and so do I.
I can't hardly wait until Thursday. At least we do get (2) episodes back to back this week. Excited to watch last weeks over again along with the new episode! Actually, I have already watched last weeks 3-4 times already since I have TIVO and I'm sure I'll watch it again before Thursday! (ha)
I loved last weeks episode for so many reasons. All the characters seem to have alot of screen time in this episode but naturally my favorites are Mer/Der. I love Patrick Dempsey and in this episode he broke my heart!! He was so pittiful! I wanted to hug him so bad! (ha) His facial expressions have always shown his feelings without ever having to say anything and it definately was so apparent in this epsiode the love he has for Meredith! He looked like he was falling apart! I do think Mer will be revived and I think her Mom will be the one to die. I think she will see this as a new beginning. I think that Mer/Der will realize that they love each other more now than ever! I think the o
Burke Backer I found that info here:
I do agree we need to see some sex. Especially involving either Burke and Yang or Grey and Shepard. We need it.
Lets go people.
And one more thing.
Amber- in resoponse to your whole "its cool if Meredith dies" thing.
Are you insane. The show is not called Izzie's Anatomy.
Oh yeah, and by the way....
Do you know what you're doing to people's heads here, I just talked to my friend, we have weekly conversation about the show. (she lives far away from me) and we NEED to know what is going to happen to Meredith, and also, what will become of Derek if she dies.
Don't do this to him Shonda.
