Grey's Anatomy: Season Six Premiere Spoilers

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.

I'm curious about how Alex and Christina will react to his death... BTW, they said that everybody in SGH liked him, but Alex was never really fond of him.
I'm going to cry like a baby during the first episode, George was my absolute favorite =(


Yeah, I know. Burke was mentioned from time to time but Erica's dismissal was way to drastic and forgotten. I'm sure it isn't going to be the case of George. :)


you're right anuflas, i think i'm just so excited about how they're going to handle this storyline..sure, i'm not wishing for a dark season, for me it's only important that they're not erasing george, just like erica or burke..i know it's very much different (the whole dying thing and so)..but i can't trust shonda anymore after all she put us through..


Oh, I think that Derek will be Chief and I hope so. This could be his Mer-less storyline. I hope so. Cathy, I wouldn't worry much about it. Obviously, there is only so much you can mourn but I think that the season will be an adjustment to a new life and certainly, George is going to be remembered in a sane, decent way. I'd hate for the entire season to be all dark.


no derek cannot be cheiff cannott be cheiff


I'm so afraid, that Shonda will let them mourn for one or two episodes and then let them move on..because that would be kind of least izzie should not be over the whole george dying thing too soon, they were soulmates and best friends..


The show will stop for me without George. He's why I loved Grey.


yay well george makes everyone smile when theyre having a bad day. i will miss him but that doesnt mean the show has to stop!

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.
