Tonight's Episode: "Staring at the Sun"

Tonight, Grey's Anatomy will be airing another re-run from earlier in Season 3, "Staring at the Sun," at 9:00 EST.

The episode begins as we wish they all would - with Meredith and Derek in the tub. She wants to take it slow, now that they're dating again, but we all know that's easier said than done when you're dealing with McDreamy.

At the hospital, Richard struggles with his marriage and his unusual relationship with Ellis Grey. Suspicions rise in regards to Burke's condition when he's asked to operate on George's father, who's admitted and has advanced cancer. Elsewhere, Alex and Izzie treat Frank, an oddball guy who refers to himself in the third-person. Alex feels himself growing closer to Izzie again - perhaps more so than he should.

We are obviously counting the days until new episodes return next Thursday, but "Staring at the Sun" is good for satisfying your Grey fix.

ps. how i wish i was in there in the tub, and not meredith haha.


next week, george and izzie!
are you seriously taking greys to that.
but now that i think about it, well i dont know, george and callie are cute together but maybe the best friend thing could turn into something? but what if i goes wrong! AND GEORGE IS MARRIED XD so yeah prediction! callie will tell george no more seeing izzie, mer and derek are going to take things to the next level and whats up with cristina and her professor ohh damn i wouldnt of though she was the type to do that. and burke seemed pretty pissed yah know, hey i would be too haha. so next week, in 5 whole days.
im counting them down to every second lol :]


I agree not Finn...i dont want him back no way!'hey if McSteamy and Izzie hook up wouldnt he like be out of cold turkey?


Kathy, I've watched the Greys-media clip several times and I don't think it's Meredith and Finn - I think it is a couple from another show - maybe that new one October Road. And, yes, you're right about us watching the clip and being mislead - the writers are brillant at doing this. I don't think George and Izzie will hook up - they just want us to think that - it looks like maybe that is Alex in bed with Izzie (if in fact that is Izzie - hard to tell). Remember one of the still photos for next week shows Alex sleeping in George's old bed.....


On Greys-media they have (2) clips for next weeks episode. On clip 2 near the end of the clip it shows two people kissing..who is that? Please tell me that it isn't Finn and Meredith? I can't really tell because its kinda dark. We do realize that when we look at these clips they make us think one thing when it really means something entirely different! So hopefully, all of the things we are seeing with Cristina nd Burke and Mer and Der (if that is Finn kissing Mer) is only trying to make us think the worst (which we are) and it probably means NOTHING!! But seriously, is it Finn and Meredith??


well, things will definitely not be bright and shiny next week! But George and Izzie? Come on!


OMG!! are you guys kidding me. Finn can't come back. I like him and all but Mer/Der are forever!!! This is really stressing me out. Okay, Now I see the writers are REALLY trying to kill me. Can't we Mer/Der fans get some love. Look people I'm dying here. And when are we going to see some Cristina/Burke moments. Love ,Love . I really don't want to see them fighting about this ex professor next week. See this is why I'm up all hours of the night. I enjoyed tonite's episode again. With Mer/Der in the bath. Just sweet and charming and sexy.


Not happy about the old guy squeezing Cristina's butt right in front of Burke and she didn't seem to mind. Looks like trouble ahead for my couple, yet again. I swear, Shonda just loves to keep them fighting and I would just love to have them happy for a little while. It will be interesting to see how they get through this new roadblock to happily evere after.


Finn cant possibly come back becuase its breaking like all the rules i have planned out for merder...uh.
and izzie and geoge..hmm that soundds like a car crash.Seriously what happened to night in shinging whatever ...we cant have McVet to the does look like an earlier pic. though.
uhh..7 days


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.
