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...

I think I know what caused the ferry accident.
There was a whole pod of sharks in the harbor - and the show jumped over the whole freaking bunch of them.
And for the first few seasons, this show was so good - and this season it just plain sucked. It had some good moments, but overall the suckage just brought even those highs down.
Drama does not mean nothing but cheating spouses and breaking up boyfriends/girlfriends. And they can dial back on the medical cases from Ripleys Believe it or Not.
So sad...
Back to E.R. I guess...


OMG. this was the most disappointing episode i have EVER seen. the only good part was the eyebrows! and i guess that richard and adelle are "back togheter" or whatever. Mer and Der: Seriously. Someone's life cant ALWAYS go wrong! something has to happen worth while at some point! ARGH! i just wanted to scream! and the whole twist with lexie. if her and mcdreamy hook up, i'm gonna throw up. and then stop watching forever. akjshdkashdksahdakuwhds


I am getting tired of "McWhiny" I thought the reason she had the death experience was suppose to give her a new outlook on life and kind of revamp her character. I do admit she is alot better now than she was. But, she can never get a break. Does anyone know if her and Der broke up? At the beginning of the episode she told Cris that her marrying Burke is proof that girls like them can have their happily ever after. Since the wedding didnt happen...will SHE leave Der? I think their is going to be a love triangle with Lexie Mer and Der next season.


Me parece tan real todo.Me los creo totalmente.Ynada me gustaría más en el mundo,que el que esta relación ficticia fuese real.Yo pienso que si.




I think that the episode was very well written. I was not disapointed with the show but with the outcomes of particular situations but it wouldn't be Grey's Anatomy without those minor disapointments! Plus, without disapointments the episodes written to bring us out of that dispointment wouldn't be so great actually. I like how this show truly shows that life isn't always perfect and like a fairy tale but it can be very difficult and disapointing at times. I watched the last half of the show with my jaw on the ground which is what I love. Intensity and passion. Thats what keeps me watching. I have no doubt next season will bring the same.


I was totally disappointed. The writer's obviously can't let anyone's character be happy. I've been through many cliff-hangers throughout my television watching life...but this wasn't even a cliff-hanger. This had "walk away and slit your wrists" written all over it. I'm giving them the 1st episode in the fall to hopefully right something or I'm not watching anymore.


The episode couldn't have been any better IMO. The show has a history of being about love lost, what could have been, etc. What did anyone expect? I was delighted with every detail, especially that ava was not in her room and that there is a new "grey" in the picture. They can totally change the cast for next year and anything would fit at this point. Wow. And another great song.


Is anyone else? It was all shocking but it lacked something... I am sure that Mer's sister will be horrible to her next season. I wonder what the point of her staying to talk to George was other than any advice. Shonda I am sure has something in store for next season with this.


I am really disappointed in this episode


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.
