Classic Grey's Anatomy: Talking About Feelings

at . Comments

Below is one of our favorite scenes from last night's new episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Life During Wartime." We know plenty of guys who aren't great when it comes to talking about feelings, but Alex Karev takes the cake. Fortunately for him, Izzie is patient and perceptive.

Here's the two-minute clip of her trying to assist him in that regard ...

omg, again. i already explained that the whole george and izzie thing was like a substitute... whatever, i am inclined to my opinion and i loved gizzie as FRIENDS! i think these two, Lexzie, are going to care for each other, that doesn't mean they love each other, but can it turn to love, maybe, we don't know. As for Merder, it's true they don't have the hot elevator scenes, or the dirty/ naughty glances that we all love, i think i know why (um, gizzie relationship totally stole the elevator one) anyways, just my opinion


Jeeeez, The AI haters are just as bad at the poll-spammers - the poll spammers spam polls, and the AI-Haters leave irate, almost abusive messages! You each have your own opinions, why not respect everyone elses?! Personally, everyone that I know offline love Izzie and Alex together. I don't think they are gunna be the match of the century but they don't make me 'sick' as so many people on here are fond of saying. Alex can be an abusive idiot, and Izzie can be whiny and selfish, but hello, they are human (albeit fictional...) They try, bless them Alex's behaviour doesn't make him an out and out bad person, and Izzie is lonely, hence her going after him probably against her better judgement. I'm sure many people of this forum know real people who have been in similar situations... The way Derek treats Meredith sometimes is appalling (the whole no credit for the clinical trial for example) but people on here rarely have a bad word to say about their relationship! The AI haters are just as bad at the poll-spammers - the poll spammers spam polls, and you leave angry, almost abusive messages!!! YOu each have your own opinions, why not respect everyojne elses?!
One thing I DO agree with most of you on is that George needs more air-time, and we need to see more George and Izzie friendship!


I hate Alex and Izzie, and I really hope this joke of a couple ends soon but probably not. They have too many obsessed fans who would scare Shonda. She is not the most courageous person in the world, as we all can see. She is even scared of giving them friendship scenes. It would just create cholera in the world or something.


Izzie said her sex with George was the best in her life. They also had a super hot kiss in the elevator totally sober, so give me a break with icky. The sex was only bad because they felt guilty about Callie and even Shonda said it. Izzie doesn't love Alex. She loves saving lost broken dysfunctional boys. Alex and Izzie make me sick and are abusive. If Alex and Izzie stay togetehr, I am never watching again and ratings are a lot more useful than spammed polls to Shonda.


I love Alex and Izzie - Izzie has strong feelings for Alex but he pushes her away too many times. What Izzie had for George was friendship love that got confused with couple love..thats why it was icky for them when they had sex. Always Alex and Izzie....


I love Alex and Izzie together :)


AI fans spamming polls and blogs gets tiresome and so does Shonda not even posting the Gizzie fans comments on Grey matter. I guess I will just have to quit the show. Maybe that'll get through to her that a lot of us hate AI even though their fans spam everything?


Hey I also stopped watching Grey. Shonda doesn't care about the Gizzie fans or she wouldn't have had Izzie jump into a relationship so fast and act like she couldn't care less about George. She obviously rewards the people who spend their entire day spamming polls against Gizzie.


Alex and Izzie feel forced to me. They happen too fast. Funny when GI happened, the AI fans said it was too fast and now Alex was with Ava a very short while ago and Izzie was in love with George a short while ago too, and they don't feel this sudden love is rushed and forced? Alex did always have feelings for Izzie, but Izzie was never really returning it, now she is all in love? I know AI will happen. Shonda thinks that most people want them and with te way the AI fans speak out all the time and vote so ferociously, of course she does. I do wish she would remember what the woman from Brother and sister said, the people who post on the Internet and vote in polls don't represent the real fanbase of the show, they are just the people who have more time to waste on the Internet and a less busy life.


This was an AMAZING episode!!!
Bailey with Hahn-- priceless!
The Chief with Mer-- so needed. He is so the Dad that Thatcher never was. If he wasn't, if he didn't care for her like she is a daughter, he wouldn't be so upset and blaming himself for what he did wrong. We need this for Mer. And for the Chief.
Cristina running and pulling Mer-- hilarious!
BUT Cristina kicking *ss in surgery on all those pigs-- THAT is the doctor that she is. She is amazing.
I liked what we saw of Hunt at the end. I have nothing but extreme pride and respect for those who selflessly defend our country and the freedoms we hold dear. I hope the GA writers intend to do U.S. soldiers honor in the character of Hunt. As for the Alex-Izzie moment-- I am glad he wasn't abusing her and he was being the Alex that we love. He will not change overnight, though-- that's not realistic. It will be bumpy. But I really still don't see it between them. They were sorta cute in that moment, but I see Alex in love with her (for as much as he's capable of right now) and I see that Izzie is lonely. and Alex is somewhat family. That's all. For all the Gizzie fans-- you may feel like Shonda and writers gave in to anti-Gizzie fan pressure, but I think Shonda really cared about Gizzie. Look at the tender break up. There was a LOT of love there. And I believe George-- it was their timing that stunk, not their chemistry. I think they'll be together someday. For the here and now-- OK, so Shonda and writers have Izzie with Alex. And George hanging out there. I think that George is totally absorbed with trying to catch up right now-- he's had no substantial interaction with anyone close to him lately. And, let's face it, George is not so thoughtless a guy as he's been with Lexie (who, by the way, is way off her rocker and needs to reel in the crush emotions before it's unbelievably humiliating for her!)... it's not his nature. I think things ended with Izzie romantically and that made things a wee bit awkward-- then add to that the fact that George started to repeat his internship year and the others moved on to being residents and now I think George is just frantically trying to change gears and catch up. He's got no time and energy for the other stuff right now. That's my take. But my take is also that Shonda and writers need to have George catch up real soon, and work on the Gizzie friendship (b/c there is NO WAY that they are not best friends anymore) and work on George interacting more with all he's close to (like Mer).
Also, I think Shonda and writers will have to address George finding out about Alex with Izzie and deal with a realistic reaction to that. So, that's my take. I look forward to seeing it all unfold.


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.
