Grey's Anatomy Recap: "Invasion"

by at . Comments

Last night's Grey's Anatomy is not likely to be very well received by its fans.

Four new Mercy West doctors arrived at Seattle Grace, as the merger took effect. All our Seattle Grace favorites got their respective asses kicked, and one of them got fired.

That would be Izzie Stevens, who abruptly left after almost killing a kidney transplant patient (who ended up going with Miranda Bailey to L.A. and Private Practice at 10).

How long will Izzie be gone? Did she leave Alex? We can only wait and see.

Meanwhile, Lexie, Alex and Cristina fought to upstage their counterparts, while Callie's dad returned to convert her, but thanks to Arizona, he's the one who saw the light.

For the full rundown of events last night, here's our recap of "Invasion."

Let Me At 'Em!

Izzie did not handle herself well amid pressure from Mercy West invaders.

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
