Thursday: "Didn't We Almost Have it All"

at . Comments

It's been a tumultuous year, both on- and off-screen, for the Grey's Anatomy cast. Thursday, Season 3 comes to a close with "Didn't We Almost Have it All," an hour that promises no shortage of drama and excitement.

Cristina is losing her mind (and eyebrows) as the wedding approaches. At the same time, Richard's wife is in critical condition, and Izzie, George and Alex stare down their own personal crises. There's also the matter of Derek and Meredith - and the girl she may be worried about (his words).

Here's a preview of the season finale...

Lexie came for a i think something is gonna happen..and i really hope not..
but meredith and derek are made for each other..he's always gonna pick her..she will get her happy ending!
about george and izzie..they should stay friends..they were so close!
I still find the show as good as it was...i'm not living in the USA so it's hard to get the new episodes..and i really have a good time when i can watch them.. i LOVE grey's anatomy


I L-O-V-E Grey's. But I agree with all of you... This finale was no good. Why cant they be happy? Simple question.... Mer has been screwed up since the show started but she ciould love then... And when she gets up in front of everyone at the weddig and say's "It's over..." Then she looks at Derek and speaks again "This is sooo over!", and Derek hangs his head....And it goes back to when she told Cristina that she had to get married so that Mer could be happy with Derek.. Then goes to right before the wedding when Derek told her in the locker room that she was the love of his life (touching I might add, made me want to kiss him!) and that he would never leave her, that he couldnt leave her, but that she kept leaving him, and she would have to end it because he never could... Now think.. I dont think that they will be together.. There's way too much foreshadowing...
And that SUCKS!!!!! I will stop watching if Derek hooks up with Lexi....
I am highly disappointed...........


does anyone know when the new season starts?


Is it just me, or has mer become a less and less likeable character. I find her flip flops about things just annoying. The protagonist of a show, you need to sympathise with. She just annoys the hell out of me, and everyone has to tiptoe on eggshells around her. Not worthwhile. They should just kick her out and make it about lexie


I just don't think that this season was that doesn't have that "umphhh" if you will. The writers are trying so hard to create drama...killing Susan, the George/Izzie thing, Meredith drowning, etc. that they are missing the little details and conversations between characters that are so lovable. I think they jumped the shark when they made George and Meredith sleep together, but they recovered a little bit, but now that Izzie and him have slept together I think it has screwed up the entire dynamic. Izzie, a character I used to love, is now one I can't stand. She's become psycho-obsessed and overly dramatic. This definitely isn't going to be a 10-year series, and I'm not so sure about 5 years.


let me tell you. i loved this show, i still do but i am so annoyed with everyone and everything that has happend to this "use to be" amazingly well writen show. It has become a show where the charectors are all messed up and there can never be a moment of happiness. It is just like Shonda gave up and doesn't care anymore. I am so frustraded when i rewatch season 1 and 2 and wonder why 3 couldn't be so funny and inspirering to watch. The season started off well but ended in a complete disapointment to all.


whooooo OMG i can't wait to see the final chapter
i'm sooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but in isreal we are just in the beginning of the seasson) :(


I agree with Murphy! The show would be boring if everything was perfect because life isn't perfect in real life. Come on, you KNOW mer and der will end up with each other in the end. By the way, I already had guessed that the bar slut was Lexie Grey. It's going to be awkward and more drama for poor mer. But, the woman who plays Lexie didnt get offered the whole season, she's going to be there for like 11 episodes.I dont think alex and ava should be together because then its history repeating itself (denny and izzie)! I thought this season rocked and I know the fourth season will too. Read Shonda Rhimes blog (Grey's Writers) on see why she did what she did. Its so sad about cristina and burke! They'll end up together, though.


I think that the relationship of MerDer will reach harmony when the series is over. The conflict and struggle of their relationship is what drives this series. Of course the relationships between the characters will be turned on theirs head ten times over if not wny would we watch?


Grey's is getting so frustrating lately. Why can't Shonda let MerDer be a couple for a while? It's getting repetitive.. They are together.. then they break up. They were together for about 3 episodes this season? I'm REALLY annoyed. And Lexie showing up just complicates things-- she's an intern this year, what, she's going to be scrubbing in on Derek's surgeries now?! I'm so sick of Grey's.. idk if I'll be watching it this next season.


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)

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.
