George's mom returns, faced with the difficult task of deciding what to do with his organs.

The second episode, entitled "Goodbye," follows at 10 p.m.

Future Shepherds

is it going to be aired in India as well on the 24th?
coz they're still showing season 4 on Star world and season 5 just started on Zee cafe...right?


Lexie is in denial. Mer's VO was about the 5 Stages of Grief. Mer knows it's George and everyone believes her.


I'm just wondering why every body keeps insisting that's George on the table dying? Hasn't any body seen the extended 6th Season premiere where Lexi says it's not him?


what is the song?


i actually also think Izzie will laugh. I've seen some pictures where izzie is crying, but also one photo where izzie is on the ground and (im pretty sure this was in a scene, its hard to tell from the pic) she looked like she was hysterically laughing, then crying, so I think she'll have a big breakdown, either way its going to be soo heartbreaking. ahh i seriously can't wait.


I kinda believe that Izzie will laugh as well. Those pictures seeing her down and crying aren't proof of the contrary. Maybe she will start laughing and then break down crying? Who knows... it's going to be interesting.


Ooohhh finally, some MerDer news. I like it. :D


ups *I´m*


MJ_McBelle, GA is not ER. I´m not watch of GA become another ER. I love our cast (merder, cris, etc...) No merder=no Grey´s for me. I cannot believe shonda wants to replace our cast :/ Anyway... I so excited for SP... Merder? cute :)


This is going to be super sad and intense - not sure if that's the perfect mood to begin Season 6 with, but I can understand why it is being done. I'm really going to miss George - and Izzie crying is going to be really upsetting. But that's the point. Cannot wait for September 24th!!!!

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
