Grey's Anatomy Episode Guide: "Holidaze"

at . Comments

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's have come and gone. Well, at least on Grey's Anatomy. In an episode jam-packed with holiday fun - and blues - we learned the following:

  • Richard's drinking is becoming a bigger problem.
  • Mark has an 18-year-old daughter ... named Sloane!
  • Bailey's father is really upset at her for getting a divorce.
  • Derek and Arizona are probably the most awesome doctors and people on earth ... as is the guy who popped the question to the girl who survived weeks with no heart.
  • Teddy was head over heels in love with Owen for years, and there was a time in which he felt the same way ... but he's in love with Cristina now, end of story. Or is it?

For the full rundown, check out our episode recap of "Holidaze."

This episode was okay.. To little merder i thought.. I really thought der and mer would've exchanged gifts or something.
I've never been a fan of thatcher but i like the fact that he tried to explain to meredith that richard has a problem.


I am concerned about the introduction of the 3 MW for one main reason. If they become part of the regular cast and NOT guest 'stars' they'll need storylines too. There's only about 42minutes per episode of new material, and Shonda always says how tight time is to get everything. When we see Iz come back, briefly from what I've read, things are going to revolve around her reappearance. When she's back properly, how can you have a dozen main characters with storylines and still have the MW developing so we have to like them. Too many main characters dilute GA. We want more of our existing favs surely. GA should have MerDer as the core couple and go from there with everyone else


Mer is around 31 years old. Mer went to Europe back packing when she was 25. When she got back her mom was diagnosed with Altzhiemers. Mer took responsibility for her mom. Mer went to meds school then in Boston and was 29 when she finished training. So if you add on the fact she's doing her third year of residency that'll make her 32 in S6.


Have to say that GA writers are sloppy about referencing back to the biographies of their characters. Amber H is so right about what age Mark is supposedly. MArk said he was nearer Thatcher's age than Lexie's. Thatch must be in his 50's, Lex is 24! I thought Mark was around 40. I think Der's remark to Mark about being 18 with a baby messed things up. Mark must have been older than 18 surely. There was no reference to Ms Riley's age when she had Sloan


Blair...She can't be his real life daughter...Eric Dane's wife is currently expecting their first child....(unless he has a child with a previous wife...;) )


I loved the episode. I don't like owen for christina so I hope he ships on over to teddy. Did anyone notice that daughter Sloane was eager to get a drink of wine but she's pregnant?


I thought that there was no warning about the whole episode...there should have been some sort of warning to let us all know that Grey's wasn't even going to be on until January 14th! I hate that Izzy wasn't in this episode either, and that the only mention of her was not in good form. I wish that she would come around and just be happy for would think that she would be more apt to be happy with Karev due to Denny's death and her cancer. Meredith and Derek need more screen time, but what they did have was great. I'm so glad they are finally happy. Now all they need are rings on their fingers! Sloan's daughter, Sloan..well I think she must be his daughter in real life, or some kin to him because they look very much alike. I love the fact that he has a kid in the show...makes him seem a little more attainable for Lexie. I loved how Lexie cut her finger in the episode..that was great! Sunny needs to go, and leave Owen alone. Cristina and Owen just started to get all happy, and then Sunny has to show up.. I love greys, but this week really did dissappoint me. I felt caught off guard and very unhappy with what happened.


Anyone know who the actress was who played the patient who lost her heart? I know I've seen her before! Thanks!

Lexie: duh! Can't you see? I am old enough to have a glass of wine...
Sloan: and I am old enough to be pregnant, so, What's your point? sorry, wrong category!

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.
