Tonight's Grey's Anatomy Episode: "These Ties That Bind"

at . Comments

With two weeks to go until the return of Grey's Anatomy, we will have to make do with a repeat, "These Ties That Bind," this evening. It's the seventh episode of this season.

There's a lot to say about this episode, and our episode guide to "These Ties That Bind" pretty much covers all the action from the opening moments to the closing credits.

Our photo and video sections contain some great images and clips, and our pages of the episode's quotes and music should help with the songs and lines that you loved.

Our staff Round Table offers a lively discussion of events, as well.

Fortunately (or not, depending on your view), this guy plays a big role.

No preview...and probably won't be a preview for 2 weeks. Kinda makes me mad. LOL!!! And another thing that makes me way pissed is seeing Denny's mug on the ep. I am so tired of him. I can't wait till the march ep till he is gone for good. They have figured out that Izzy has a tumor. She is a great actress, but they have wore out the sickness and seeing dead Denny. I've moved passed that. Give her 15 minutes and then let her go. RIP Miss Izzy!!!!

They are REALLY dragging this Izzy thing out. Two weeks in a row barely any progress, and with 2 hour episodes no less! I want to find out what's wrong with her without resorting to spoilers!

Right like the ferry crash episodes were during march sweeps for season 3, the bomb episode in season 2 was the superbowl episode or february sweeps.

It one of the periods of the year when the national ratings of the popularity of U.S. TV shows are studied. TV stations normally deliberately schedule main events in plots in some shows in order to boost television ratings.

There're reruns because they're getting ready to do the March sweeps.

maybe they're making some time pass along in the show so that Derek and Mark can get over their fight and the air to pass through.......clean karma and all that

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

Derek

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
