hey fello Greys fans-
i'm desprate to meet the Greys cast. anyone know how???? if you do please put it on here!! it will be very appreciated!!
love always Syd


I love Grey´s Mer and Der they born to be together!!! i wait so excited for next sesson


For those concerned with the MerDer outcome...other message boards say that Shonda comments on this in a podcast saying that MerDer are together in a relationship and that Derek isn't going to get hit by car or anything else that would keep them apart right now.


London chic: you're right! We didn't see that part in the epi, so probably cut? I loved the end, when they put the music volume up, as Derek walks to Mer and kisses her... I loved it! I actually expected a corny conversation like 'i missed you' or ' i love you so much' . I don't like George & Lexie being together. Alex & Izzie are ok. Hahn & Callie... I think Sloan willl realize in season 5 that he has real feelings for Callie, so maybe he and Hahn will try to win her heart etc?
So excited!
But why did we see Addie kissing Pete with tongue in season 3, and why don't we never see MerDer doing that :p?


Callie and Hahn? So Callie, who was married to George and then sleeping with McSteamy suddenly discovers she is gay? Meredith and Derrick finally back together I'm happy about. Callie and Hahn together is as stupid as Izzy and George was.


This was a great finish to the season! Finally Derek and Meredith are happy, or are they? Something tells me that this joy for both of them will not last. It would really be nice to see the love they have for each other last forever. There is one thing I found to be a little odd. With all that went on with Isiah Washington and why he is not on the show any more, why did Shondra feel the need to put 2 of the same sex having a relationship? I can hardly wait until the new season starts, does any one know when that will be?


i agree with you jen. shonda CAN do so much with her character now that shes healed. and i hate the fact that those so called "fans" that are putting images in my head of derek dead on the side of the road. the way that the finale ended i didnt think anything would happen but now i have doubts. but meredith. she doesnt have doubts anymore because she realized her mom didnt mean be an extraordinary surgeon. have extraordinary love. and she does. she has it. derek isnt going anywhere unless meredith is with him.


i loved it derek and meredith have so much chemistry and now that meredith is healed i think that shonda can do so much with their characters maybe a mchouse our little mcbabies who knows shonda always has us guessing.


I do agree it was an amazing ending, but i cnt help with the bad feeling.. but what mer did with the candles.. that was one the sweetest thing i eva seen.. and alex did touch me aswell.. :( can't wait for season 5 .. greys anatomy <3


laura dont feel bad i cried a lot during this episode. and please stop talking about bad stuff happening to derek, meredith has finally come around and i dont think shonda could do that to her. they could not have written out that last scene any bettter. freaking amazing. seriously!


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.
