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

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

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.
