Thursday's All-New Episode: "Desire"

by at . Comments

On Thursday's all-new episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Desire," the attendings vie to be Chief. Not surprising, we know.

But here's one that you might not see coming - two characters who haven't slept together before will do so. Dr. McSteamy's 60-day vow of chastity, meanwhile, comes to its conclusion.

Elsewhere, we're introduced to a boss, his assistant, and his wife. We also get to see someone being treated in the clinic, and Derek (surprise) has more questions about his relationship with Meredith.

Here's a preview...


Here's an extended clip from the episode...


As usual, we'll have our episode recap, music guide, image gallery and list of quotes up after the show. Follow these links to our thorough recap from last week's "Time After Time," as well as its music, pictures and quotes.

Tonight's episode? Let's just say it made me sad. Not because I didn't like it... but because it broke my heart. I know happiness doesn't make good TV... but I think we should consider how many people are sickly addicted to living vicariously through Grey's. Maybe a little bit of happiness (like George NOT LEAVING and Meredith and Derek ACTUALLY GETTING TO BE HAPPY FOR ONCE, EVER) could do some good. :(


I really liked this show at the beginning but the whole mess with Izzie Stevens being the blonde who gets to have the last word in every face off with George's wife is beginning to make me sick. Now she has to beg Izzie to leave her husband alone! I think the next few shows will be determinative for me and my friends. The fact that George and Izzie slept together should be out in the open and Shonda should stop trying to romanticize their sickening adultery. I am getting gradually disappointed with this show. Its like, forget commitment, follow the sex.


I think I saw this discussion in the forums, but I'm at work and can't post I thought I'd put it here instead! There's a web site that tracks tv episodes for a zillion shows....anyway, they have GA running through MAY 17!!! Twenty five shows! I'd heard they'd upped the number from the original - maybe to add the 2 parter spin-off? But anyway, the spin off is NOT the finale - according to this site anyway. It's the 2 parter on 5/3, then a new show for the 10th and the 17! woohoo! And I'm having a GA finale party for the folks at my new job - so I have more time to unpack and get ready! can't wiat til tonight!!!!


ok merideth and derrick cannot break up! i repeat CANNOT BREAK UP!!! If they do not to be a drama queen but i will never watch the show!! But in the end i think they'll pull through because of everything they've been throught together.


I'm not too worried about Mer/Der myself. I think they'll work things out. And if they don't, I'd be interested in seeing where Shonda takes it. I never have doubts in Shonda. Grey's Anatomy is her art and her art portrays the troubled relationships that we very often find in life. Not everything is a fairytale. I thank her for not making the show too much like a fairytale. I grew out of those a long time ago and now enjoy watching things that are a little more realistic, (I said a little, cause we all know Grey's isn't quite known for being realistic.) Sure, it's okay to be afraid of what Shonda might do to our favorite couple, but we have to trust that she knows what she's doing, even if she doesn't like it. And it's not fair to say that you hate her for it. This is her baby, not yours. And I'm sorry if I'm being harsh on anyone, but this is how I feel. Shonda, the show is yours, do what you wish with it.


I also hope everything will turn out just fine between Derek and Meredith...I mean seriously..they can't break up..they are just two perfect for each other


Thanks for the link, Kathy! Judging from the link I think that the two people who are going to sleep together that haven't before are Alex and Addison.


I myself am also very concernced for Mer/Der. Their relationship is what carries the show. But I do think that they would make make it through no matter what problems come thier way. If you think if a real relationship nithing goes perfect so their are ups and downs but they HAVE to end up together. They are meant for eachother.


Very concerned about Mer/Der! I've really been hoping that by season end everything will be just fine,(and hopefully they will be okay) but everytime I see a new promo clip I feel alittle more discouraged. Theres a new clip on that certainly will make us Mer/Der fans worry...Der and Mer haven't communicated in a few days and she catches him as he is walking into the hopsital and talks with him. You can tell he is still very troubled!
I've included the link below.
(I wish SHE WOULD TALK TO HIM)! SHe does mention communication in their conversation and I hope that is a good sign,... but it doesn't really seem that Mer realizes yet that there is something troubling Der! In the previews it does show them in bed and Mer is watching Der sleep. Maybe at that point she realizes there is something going on with him and she needs to open up to him! I'm really hoping things will be ok and again because Shonda is causing so much turmoil with them in these last few episodes, maybe that means she will surprise us at the end with happiness with these two!


Dear Shonda, i hope you or one of your staffs will get this message. Firstly i will like to congratulate you for killing a perfectly classic show.that is GA secondly, i thought i will never see this day come, but again you have proved me wrong by destroying the most amazing chemistry you had between PD & EP. Lastly, i hope you get back to your senses and stop playing Mcnotwise!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

The first time I kissed my wife, she wasn't my wife then, she was just this girl in a bar. But when we kissed, it was like, I gotta tell you, it was like I'd never kissed any other woman before. It was like my first kiss. The right kiss.


[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
