Grey's Anatomy Season Premiere Recap: "Good Mourning / Goodbye"

at . Comments

Despite approximately 79 sneak previews giving away much of the plot, the Season 6 premiere of Grey's Anatomy still provided some plenty of dramatic high points.

Even though we knew the season-opener revolved around the death of Dr. George O'Malley, his colleagues went through the stages of grief uniquely and emotionally. 

Their respective story lines and personal struggles were neat to watch.

In this two-hour Grey's Anatomy event, 40 days passed in the Seattle Grace universe, 20 in each hour, picking up right where we left off in May. The episode titles set the stage, but there were plenty of developments and vintage Grey's Anatomy moments you never saw coming.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

[narrating] The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.
