Grey's Anatomy: Season Six Premiere Spoilers

by at . Comments

The first episode of Season Six of Grey's Anatomy is very dark, as the cast hinted and creator Shonda Rhimes has flat-out stated throughout the long offseason.

In the opinion of some, the show's executive producer may have tried to ease viewers in to a George-less Grey's Anatomy, it just wouldn't work. He was too special.

Even if there are fans who may not have liked George, in Seattle Grace, everybody liked him.

Just how beloved George was is clear in how people react to his death.

The Coffin

We'll save the Grey's Anatomy spoilers for after the jump. Click to read some details of what you can expect in the first episode of the upcoming season, "Good Mourning" ...

There will be:
  • A severed arm
  • A short, strange funeral scene
  • An appearance by George's mom
  • Talk about George's male anatomy
  • People reacting in strange, strange ways to his death.

While there were those who did the requisite crying and staring into space, Grey's Anatomy fans should watch out for one or two pronounced, life-changing reaction.

In short, the episode is all about George O'Malley, and rightly so.

Meanwhile, the person least affected with George's demise gets her own plot line. Arizona Robbins will try to do her job as virtually everyone around her is still reeling.

As seen in one of the promos, there is also the matter of the Chief and Derek in talks over the Chief of Surgery position - but "in talks" may be too soft a term.

The talk between George's mom and one of the surgeons may prove to be one of the more heartbreaking scenes in an episode that in itself is heartbreaking.

Oh God, I never ever want to see Isiah Washington on Grey ever again. The way he insulted TR. And after the way TR has been treated since IW got fired, that would be the worst insult ever to our sweet TR.

Anuflas, I get that the whole season can't be sad but by the spoilers, they all seem over him by episode 2. It's way too soon for me. Couldn't they have let him mourn him at least 3 or 4 episodes?

We got a few great scenes with George last season, and to me they were the best scenes of the season. How can you say it makes no difference? It does to me and to everyone who loved George. A little George is better than no George at all. I can't even imagine the show or Izzie without him. I love George more than I have ever loved any character on TV and I'm devastated by this.

It makes a huge difference for me. I spent the whole last season missing George, my favorite character, and Gizzie, my favorite couple and friendship. The rare moments I did see him last season, I treasured. Just seeing him 2 minutes made the whole episode for me. So for the many of us who love George, and I know we are the majority, George dying and never coming back at all even for visits make all the difference in the world, the difference between watching or not. I know Shonda will let us down. They will all have forgotten George by episode 2 so i'm gone.

George was my favorite character. I hope that his story does not end here.

Clancy, i think the big difference to last season is that george is not just appearing for few moments, he's a goner, he's dead and -if shonda learnd from that silly denny-ghost-storyline- we will never see him again on screen. At least for the george/gizziefans there's much change this season. i'm pretty curious about the "talk about george's male anatomy"..what could this mean? :)

personally, george is an important character but for the last season, he is virtually not there so it makes no difference. i am one of the people who doesn't really like george o'malley's plot line. anyways, what i will miss is their friendship.

I know I will...I've got tissues ready to go!

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

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
