I thought it was ridiculous. The Grey's writers need a head check - actors have a right to say what they want and shouldn't be "written off" for offending them. Frankly the season was pretty lame this year anyway; suddenly Callie has feelings for women and is over George, Christina is getting emotional? I liked pairing up Izzie & Alex, but not for her to die. Building a character base is what keeps a show going. Seinfeld, Friends, these shows didn't run for years by writing people off. Without Izzie, George, or both the show isn't the same Grey's. First episode of season 6 will tell me whether I continue to watch the show or let it fall off the radar as the crap it's become.


I was up until midnight because I just couldn't get down from the high of the episode. This by far passes season 2 finale which was my favorite until last night. I have to say i knew is was George when they cut his watch off. It was that big wristband that gave it away but it was only for a split second. GOD THAT WAS AMAZING


please do not let george die at least not like thursday nights show he deserves better


oh screw mer/der post it thing, the last few minutes were absolutely FABULOUS
all episode long I was wondering wether it would be as good as the other finales, and it totally was
the ending is outstanding, i couldnt possibly wait more


I hate to be the downer but I wasn't that much excited by it. The 100th really blew it for me. That said... Izzie/Alex - I love Alex. I really love Alex. I'm kinda loving him more. He really cares for Izzie. Take that Alex haters! That moment before Iz goes into surgery was heartbreaking. I'm honestly over her cancer situation so I'm not really stressed out to see if she lives or dies. Whatever it is, I hope that Alex makes it out. George - The minute he opened his eyes and saw Mer, you could totally see that it was him. Even if we already knew it. I laughed and became so melancholic about old George when he told Bailey he joined the Army. I really wished that we would've gotten a deeper explation to his decision. I hope that we eventually do. (and that he makes it). MerDer - Look, I'm not big on weddings either. I actually had a final project of a class to plan a wedding and it stressed me out so bad that I made a pact with myself that I wouldn't do a big crazy (Izzie extravaganza) wedding, so I understand Mer. But was it so hard for them to go to City Hall? She wanted to. So why couldn't they? I love that they wrote their vows in a post it and that they are "spiritually" married, although I feel that they sorta were in ELL. I just hope that nothing bad happens were legal papers have to come handy. And on a final note, way to go Bailey. Her marriage was in a bad state already. Good to see that she took the final step. I am liking Arizona really really a lot! She's funny. I hope that she is good for Callie. Also, love that Mark finally grew up. He's moving on whether Lexie can take it or not. I like that. That's it :) Kinda contradictory my opinion but that's how I felt the episode was for me.


Izzy was on the elevator. George was standing outside the elevator. Izzy can go up a floor- continue on with life. That was the metaphor. We will see izzy again- not George. He was left outside.


Why can't there be a BEST EPISODE EVER choice???


I KNEW it was George from the moment he opened his eye in the trauma room when they first brought him in! Holy crap! What an episode! I think George is dead for sure (which is a shame cause he sure did look cute in his army uniform!) and Izzie will live.
Am I the only one who feels a little gipped by the MerDer pseudo wedding? I really wish they would be LEGALLY married, I mean I want her to be Meredith Shepherd!
As for George leaving right when Iz was in the middle of her cancer crisis, I think part of the reason he decided to go into the army was because he was scared for her.
AND I'M SOO HAPPY FOR CHRISTINA AND OWEN! I just thought I would throw that out there :)
Ughhh I don't want to wait through the summer! What do I do without Grey's?


I don't know, I haven't got over it yet. I think it was very well written, but as a fan I hate them right now. It's too much suffering. I think what hurts more is not who dies, it's the fact that we haven't seen how the others characters deal with his lost. Somehow I think I need to see his friends been fine so I can be fine.
What worries me is that GA won't be the same after this, I really hope it's going to be the same. I want to enjoy watching the next season, but I don't know if I'll be able to do it if there is too much suffering. But I don't know how are they ging to put happy stuff in the middle of this, espcially in the next season premiere. We all have our big deal of suffering in our real lives already, don't know if I can't take more!
There were things who made me happy of course, especially the couple stuff, I love C/O, and MerDer "wedding" was cute, I love how they used Cristina's post-its, it's a beautiful detail. Those details are what make me love this show. And Meredith and Cristina's frienshipis the best thing of this series, the way they said I love you to each other in their own particular ways. Beautiful. But the last scenes were too overwhelmin, so I can't not aprecitte the happy stuff yet until I get over he ending.


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.
