Tonight's Episode: "Walk On Water"

at . Comments
Derek is On the Scene
Beginning tonight, our favorite show will enter a three-episode story arc that the network says will challenge the interns of Seattle Grace - and Grey's Anatomy fans - like never before.

In tonight's "Walk On Water," the staff tries to deal with patients while absorbing the shock of a major disaster on the Seattle ferries. The Chief must choose a team to go out on location and save what's left of the few lives spared.

A woman with pieces of glass in her chest comes to the ER in search of her husband, who was in another ambulance. She refuses to be treated until she sees her husband. But is he at Seattle Grace?

One doctor has to deal with some angry people complaining that the wait to be treated is too long. Somewhere in Seattle, another doctor helps a man stuck in his car after an accident. A patient finds renewed hope after eye surgery, while a child must wait alone in the waiting room as her mother is treated by doctors.

Partially filmed in Seattle, and guest starring Elizabeth Reaser, this episode sounds like a dramatic one. There's certainly lot to process, but it should be entertaining, to say the least. Here's ABC's preview of "Walk On Water" ...


As always, we'll have our official episode guide posted after the show, and put together a list of quotes, image gallery, and music guide. Check back often, and thanks as always for visiting the Insider!

I have the download link of this episode. Go to and go to my journal/blog section!


I thought it was a great episode. Loved the Der/Mer moments. I think what will happen is....Remember, Derreck told Meredith that he wa her "Knight and Shinning Armour"when he kissed her before leaving for work. He will save her life and naturally be her "Knight and Shinning Armour"!!!!!! I love Patrick even more now just thinking about that! (ha) I think Der will be asking Mer to marry him soon, maybe not next week, but I think after all of this is said and done...they will realize exactly how much they love each other and will be the couple to get married in the end. They will marry on a Ferry Boat! Does anybody else see the future plans for Mer/Der that I see??


i can't breathe. i mean i literally cannot breathe! this episode totally knocked the breath out of me! it was that good. the frist part that freaked me out was when meredith was in the bathtub and like tried to drown herself. well not really .. but it kinda looked like she was thinking about it and then derek walked in and said all that jazz. it was pretty sweet! the whole "you're not my knight in shining whatever" and then the "for the record i am your knight in shining whatever" yeah that was totally sweet. i said aww outloud. but next was when burke told derek that him and christina were engaged. i knew that wasn't going to be the smartest thing said the whole episode. so i held my breath for that. the third part that freaked me out was when izzie went on the ferry boat. i was kinda freaking out cause nothing good can come when a person goes back onto a ferry boat that's on fire .. on the water .. where she could drown with the boat. yeah that was freaking me out. OH and when alex went down on that little dock thing and the guy told him not to it wasn't stable i freaked out. i was like ahh alex is gonna drown to! but then i was like nah. then he was leaving because the girl was dead .. but no she wasn't dead! so he goes back and gets the thing off her and everythings okay. but that girl looked kinda bad .. like that guy that had all those tumors on his face and looked like a lion earlier in the season .. cept she was black and blue. but i thought alex was pretty nice in this episode. i liked it. and then .. the worst thing of all .. meredith freaking falls off the dock and the little girl doesn't do anything. i mean i know shes little but i would be freaking out if i was that little and the grown up i was with fell over .. i would be screaming. but no she doesn't. so i did for her! no really .. i did. so it's showing meredith fall over and the little girl just turns around and walks off. oh and speaking of the little girl .. when that guy took her and then just left her right there .. that wasn't too nice .. i wanted to slap him. but then back to meredith .. the promo for next week is freaking me out to! it's like everything tonight is freaking me out. i HATE it! ahhh. can meredith not swim? but derek and christina both looked really scared .. and considering christina isn't even at the dock i don't know how in the hell she would know about meredith being in the water so maybe she's been gone for a while and they can't find her?! but i'm not getting ahead of myself or i'll be freaking out all week. and i cannot have that. so i'm going to stay postitve and just leave it at that. overall it was one of THE BEST episodes yet. wayy better than the bomb one. LOVE IT! :)


For some reason I think the little girl might have been a figment of Mer's imagination. She has a knack for somewhat predicting the future, at the very beginning of "It's the end of the world" she didn't want to get out of bed b/c she knew something bad was going to happen, and then the fact that she was sort of trying to drown herself at the beginning of tonight's I think the little girl is either a figment of her imagination or it's something of like a ghost that is actually her as a child!


MEREDITH!!! COME BACKKK!!! omgg. on the promo for next weeks, derek and christina looked SO concerned and scared about meredith. I mean, she'll live. she's the main character. but still. it's nuts. and that girl just FREAKING WALKED AWAY?!?!? i was like.. HELP HER?! well this episode was freaking amazing. probably the pest once ver. but doesn't it seem like the hour is just getting shorter every episode? sad, i know.


What's going on with greys lately. All the scenes are very drawn out. Let me know if anyone agrees


What was the song at the end of this episode?


the promo from the abc site is so good. you all should watch it if you have time, it's so funny! the chief isn't interested in ellis any more. besides the fact that she's got alzheimer's (that never goes away!), he never had any intention of going back to her whether she was well or not. he was only humoring her last episode because he still cares about her and didn't want to hurt her feelings unnecessarily.


I want Burke and/or Cristina to tell someone about the engagement, too, mainly Mer, Bailey, and the Chief.


I think that Addison is on the ferry. Could be wrong though... I want to know if Burke or Chrisina is going to tell anyone about the engagement! Hope So!


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
