3 week hiatus... (cries) This was an awesome episode! I hope nothing bad happens to my fave couples that are on the brink of disaster (i.e. MerDer, Calzona, Crowena)
Mark + Milk Chocolate= Yummy fun. :)
Oh, I didn't find out it was a 3 week hiatus until everyone said it. :P I had to watch it on Hulu cause I didn't want to miss Fringe (I'm a Sci-Fi freak.) :P

I expected that this episode is awesome and it really was. I'm sad that the next episode is so far away , what I'm going to do 3 weeks without Grey's Anatomy :'(
I didn't like Kepner before and i don't like her now, i think she's so annoying. i hope they get her out of GA soon.

jude totally agree with you. That's what I thought. Maybe she will do something to Der or Mer. Her crush is scary. Maybe that's why Shonda is nervous of the finale!

I'd forgotten that R woman lost it when Der broke up with her. But I think R was used by Der as a rebound and R lost touch with reality in thinking he'd stay once Mer was back. Kepner's crush was amusing last week when she crossed Mer. But now it's not amusing. Der's completely oblivious to her, she's just another resident. Wonder how far this stroyline will go

I am so worried that Kepner's crush is gonna get out of hand and Der's gonna suffer cos of it. Those looks of Kepner makes me think fatal attraction isn't beyond a plot line. I'm so glad Lexie challenged Kepner about the crush, but I think thisis going further. They need a dramatic end to S6, could this be one of the plots?

This was an excellent episode in so many ways. Mer/Der: I love love love them! I really want to see a Mer/Der baby in the future (hopefully by S7!) I wasn't surprised by mer's insecurities about being a mom because she did have a bad mom and she's afraid of becoming her but honestly she WILL never become her mom she cares about people and has people's back which is what I love about her now Alex/Aaron:Alex=new favorite character!!!! Now I truly know why Alex is the way he is he's been a parent to two siblings for so long he never had a childhood and I think that the mean comments and old womanizing ways were a way to make up for that. The rest of the history was not surprising because of spoilers. I loved the interactions between them (even the fight and I don't condone violence lol!) and want to hear more about his family soon. Mer/Alex:They are my favorite friendship on the show (PLEASE Shonda don't mess this one up!) I loved all their scenes in this episode and want to continue seeing their friendship grow Cristina/Owen: OMG she's afraid of him! I have a bad feeling this isn't going to end well but I don't really care about this couple April: I didn't care about her character @ first but soley because of what happened between her and Derek I highly despise her (Kudos to Lexie on setting her straight if she beat the living hell out of her I wouldn't care) Cheif/Lexie medical case: This was one of the saddest cases of GA I have ever seen and sometimes it makes you think about the ones you love and how you have to look out for them even after they are gone Sloan coming back: Meh I really don't care because it's probably the only episode she will come back in Overall excellent episode I just hope the last 4 episodes have this pace then I will change my view on S6 (This episode is worth the 3 week hiatus)

Merderistruelove

What an incredible episode:). Meredith is back as the lead.. YAY! Love the Mer/Alex. I hope we get to see more of their amazing friendship! MerDer awesomenesss.. Love them! I am going home to my wife.. soo dreamy. Loved all the kisses. And yay Mer wants kids and they are practicing:) Loved that Lexie has Mer's back but I really wished she hit that bitch. April he doesn't know you exist he loves his pretty wife!! I hope she won't go all fatal attraction on Mer and Der!

Wait, are my eyes deceiving me? An actual Mark and Lexie scene? My night was completely made. I disregarded the Mark and Teddy scene, cause *gag*. My hope isn't renewed...yet, but hopefully there will be more Mark and Lexie. Come on now. Loved Alex last night. Loved him. He's awesome. Wonderful episode, really.

Okey ,this episode was better than the last.I saw always so much Teddy and Owen ,i don't like more ,i was better than Teddy 'd arrive to the Sgh.
Alex's centric ,i don't see it ,because the surgery was better that of Cri.I like Alex and Mer in living -room ,he supportes Mer,good Alex.I 'd have seen more scene between Alex ,Mer and Aaron. What means those furtive looks by April for Derek?Shonda reassumed for beaviour falls it died to Derek?Come on, Derek has eyes only for Mer,do you understand Kepner?Good Lexie defends the territory of you sister.Out from GA KEPNER togheter to that boring-TEddy. We want to speak about MERDER,mer saw her a little more ,and Merder only 3 scenes,these 2 characters need of more scenes. Sloan-Sloan is giving a birth to boy and instead to going to hospital she goes to father's house,ahhhhhhhhhhhh

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.

Meredith
