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.

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.

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 unrealistic..at 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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
