Grey's Anatomy returns for its sixth season with a two-hour event Thursday, September 24, on ABC. Below is the network's official synopsis of the Season 6 premiere.

The first episode, entitled "Good Mourning," will air at 9 p.m.

The hospital staff is left to deal with the aftermath of George's passing. Hitting the staff hard, they all find unique ways to get through the various stages of grief.

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

As this episode begins, time has passed. Everyone at Seattle Grace Hospital is struggling after losing one of their own and are turning to any distraction they can find.

Meredith and Derek are consummating their marriage anywhere and everywhere, while Cristina and Owen have been instructed to abstain from sex by Dr. Wyatt.

Guest stars for "Good Mourning" are Shannon Lucio as Amanda (the woman George saved at the end of last season), Debra Monk as Mrs. O'Malley, Martha Plimpton as Pam, Mitch Pileggi as Larry Jennings, Zoe Boyle as Clara and Zack Shada as Andy.

Grey's Anatomy guest stars for "Goodbye" include Amy Madigan as Dr. Wyatt, Adam Lazarre White as an Oncology Resident, Lucio, Plimpton, Pileggi, Boyle and Shada.

"Good Mourning" was written by Krista Vernoff and directed by Ed Ornelas.

"Goodbye" was also written by Vernoff but directed by Bill D'Elia.

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?

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.

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

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.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
