Grey Chatter: The Tangled, Complicated Webs We Weave

by at . Comments

Holy crap, it's George and Mere... no. It's George and Oliv... No. Wait, it's George and Call... oh, nope, wrong again.

Grey Chatter: The Tangled, Complicated Webs We WeaveIt's actually George and Izzie.

He certainly gets around for such a soft-spoken, insecure guy. But it is wrong to judge, after all, though cheating on your wife does fall outside the judge-not boundaries.

George and Callie had a fight. A fight. It's what married people do.

Never mind that Callie's own insecurities seem to creep into every corner of their relationship, or that George spilled the beans on Callie's heiress status or that he somehow always manages to say the wrong things.

None of these things give him the right to cheat on his wife.

Add to that the fact that he cheated on her with Izzie and the situation manages to get even worse. Callie and Izzie obviously already had issues with each other. Callie's issues stem from her jealousy of Izzie's looks and relationship with George. Izzie's apparently come from these pent up feelings she has been harboring for George.

But everyone has flaws, and everyone makes mistakes.

Take Cristina, for example. In an effort to save Burke from rival jealousy over past relationships, she sort of leaves out one of the most important relationships she's had: a three-year tryst with Burke's own idol and the possible new chief of surgery, Dr. Colin Marlow.

This opens Burke's eyes to something he should have seen from the start - Cristina digs authority figures. But if her admiration of Burke's medical abilities is the only thing keeping Cristina in the relationship, Burke doesn't want a part of it.

Now Cristina has an out. She can either fight for Preston and attempt to overcome this new hurdle in their rocky road toward marital bliss, or she can just let him go the same way she let past relationships fizzle out.

People are complicated. This is what makes them endearing and "important," as Meredith points out on multiple occasions. Her renewed take on life and love and friendship is refreshing and long-awaited.

Her father, Thatcher, and his wife have reached out to Meredith and she's finally reaching back, albeit timidly.

Alex is finally moving into the house with Izzie and Meredith, leaving his previous housing situation a mystery. But a lot about Alex is mysterious, which is part of what makes him so interesting. His growing attachment to Jane Doe is reminiscent of another intern's affection for her patient.

Yet no one can really blame him. He risked his own life to rescue this woman, and now she has no one else in the world except him.

Many things are now hanging in the balance at Seattle Grace, all awaiting decisions - the chief of surgery position, George and Callie's marriage, Burke and Cristina's relationship - but eventually, decisions will be made and consequences will be carried out, for good or bad.

I never thought of an Izzie and George hook up. But things like that happen in real life, so why not tv. I'm just wondering if George can handle it. He is not a good liar and if he tells callie, this will kill her. She deserves better. I hoping Izzie and her BIG mouth will keep quite, but who knows. Like I said these things happen in real life. Depending on the involved persons. It could become the Good,the Bad or Ugly. Personally I think they should keep their mouths shut and just move on. But then that's just me.

Have any of you ever heard that you can't build a good relationship without being friends first? I've always hoped that something would spark up between George and Izzie... Don't get me wrong, I love love love Callie.. but George and Izzie just fit. And even if it doesn't work out, a friendship like that can make it. Let's just watch and see how it unfolds... it could definitely make for some interesting television! And... I'm sure I'll dig the spin-off... but it'll be sad to see Addison go. All in all, just thankful there's a show like Grey's on tv! Thanks to Shonda, the cast, and everyone else involved... long live Grey's Anatomy. :-)

i agree with Mandy. I was also thinking along the lines of LA. What if both izzie and callie are pregnant?
That would be..wierd...and exciting to see how it turns out.

I will be so upset if George and Izzie have actually slept together and continue to be together. I dont like it. I like Callie and for him to cheat on her, makes me not like George as much as I did...drunk or not..he's an a**. Izzie doesnt impress me either...I didnt like the ending of the last episode and from what Ive read on other Spoiler sites, george and Izzie fall in love. Im not liking the show too much right now. Izzie and George together is not a good idea. They make nice friends...thats it, and lets keep it that way

the promo for Grey's just aired and they definately say that IZZY and George had SEX. Heard it with my own ears.

I think Shonda's setting up season finale, and I'm guessing Callie AND Izzy will turn up pregnant by George. That would be a good season ending for those three.

NOOO - George and Izzie are so awkward together. From the beginning he always had a crush on Meredith (and that was really well done) and was never interested in Izzie - she was always the big sister best friend confidante who just gave advice to him, and they protected each other, and they shared gossip - nothing more!
* Fingers crossed they really DIDN'T do the McNasty! And, about 'Izzie's big secret' in the next episode I hope she doesn't get pregnant...! AAARRRGGHH!

I tend to agree with Luvsthisshow on the George / Callie analysis...I think the fight has been brewing...but I'm not sure about whether G & C "should" or "shouldn't" be together. I really think the George / Izzie thing is pure Knob Creek. Best friends let their guard down with each other, the liquor makes it easier, the fight with Callie (for George) and Izzie's loss (still fresh for her) being incredible stresses....one thing leads to another -- but I don't think they did the McNasty - I think they passed out. Anybody wanna bet? lol

i think george and callie's argument has been building up for sometime. he is majorly ticked about all the secrets she's kept--not the least of which her family is loaded. also, remember she kept it a secret that she lived in the basement of the hospital and that he found out about mcsteamy from alex which was also extremely hurtful. she went into the relationship with a huge crush on him and he never really caught up with that emotionally and she never lets him forget it. she never gave him the chance to fall in love with her. i think deep down she knows that they shouldn't have married so quickly and that she took advantage of his loneliness and vulnerability after his dad died. callie also is and always has been completely jealous of the friendships george has, probably because she has no friends. so now all this animosity is surfacing from both sides. i really think they were doomed, even if george never slept with izzie. don't get me wrong, i don't agree w/the george/izzie pairing, i'd rather have her with alex to be honest, but i don't really think george and callie ever belonged together.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

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)
