Tonight's Episode: "Wishin' and Hopin'"
Last week's "Great Expectations" certainly lived up to them, and we have complete faith that tonight's episode, "Wishin' and Hopin,'" will follow that lead.

The race for the Chief's position is on, as Derek, Preston, Addison and even Mark compete for Richard's affections. We'll see who emerges as a contender in this four-horse race.

Meanwhile, a surgical patient endangers the lives of everyone around her, and Meredith's Alzheimer's-stricken mother, Ellis (played by the Emmy-nominated Kate Burton), experiences a change in her medical condition and becomes lucid.

How this affects the younger Dr. Grey - as well as Ellis' one-time lover, Richard, and his decision to retire - will be very interesting to see.

Lastly, Cristina and Callie consider the marriage proposals left on the table at the end of last week's show. According to the official Insider poll, 86 percent of you believe we'll hear at least one "yes."

Here's ABC's preview of tonight's show...


As always, we'll have our episode guide posted right after the show, and begin compiling our list of quotes, image gallery, and music guide. Check back often, and thanks for watching along with us here at the Insider.

ABC site has an advanced preview up, the clinic is done??? Boy that was expedient work ,lol!!!


What to do,What to do..hmmm Burktina allready seems married, so I am pondering how will it expand on the story line?? Maybe the writers will have both proposals denied and then introduce other characters??? It will be interesting to say the least. Happy watching !!


Same here BB! Have you seen the preview on the ABC GA site? It doesn't include any of the scenes from this preview which was shown at the end of last week's show. It seems that a whole lot of time has gone by because the clinic is up and running--how did that happen so fast?? But yet the attendings seem to be continuing where they left off last week. Hmmmmm..... can't wait to check it all out. Also, Izzie appears to be WAY out there even for her. LOL


It's Thursday, my new favorite day of the week. Hooray! This episode looks exciting. I am wishing and hoping for a Cristina yes.


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.
