Grey's Anatomy Reaction: Discuss "Shock to the System"

at . Comments

Meredith finally told Derek the offseason's biggest piece of news tonight on Grey's Anatomy, as the surgeons continued to grapple with the aftermath of the tragic shooting.

Cristina, meanwhile, reacted in a manner few could have predicted. How will this tough surgeon bounce back going forward? And will Alex finally man up or keep kidding himself?

We'll recap "Shock to the System" in detail shortly. For now, we want to hear from you regarding the episode, in the form of comments and votes in our informal survey below ...

@Sally : I sooo agree with you !! This season started really good ! I mean, I have great expectations. I can't wait for the next episode coz Cristina is in a really bad shape...and I wanna see her out of this ! Oh and I wanna see Mark and Lexie together again !!!!!! PLEASE Shonda looll !


Yeeeeaaahhh ! me too ! I felt SOOO bad for Mark... man, that was a shock ! Oh and Owen's speech just shook me to the core !!! It brought tears I swear ! And Cristina... Gosh I cried... I was soo shocked and it was excrutiating to see her like this.
MerDer... she FINALLY told him. Though I thought Der would be more shaken about such a revelation.... We'll see about that in the future coz I really need some drama ! They can't just go through that so easily !


I actually love Mark and Lexie together. I was so dissapointed when Lexie asked Mark to "leave her alone." Do they have a second chance? I really hope so! I want those to together! Lexie was the reason I started watching this show, so I am a huge fan of Chyler.


love the merder scene by the way....and I wish shonda can give addison and mark another just makes sense.for addie to leave dereck for mark...there has to be a deeper connection there. and it would make an interesting greys-private practice crossover.... more interesting than a sister-brother reunion...yawn...and the crossover can actually drag on. making a love team based on two different shows.i think not only will it be a first in tv history but would also create and keep fan base interested in both shows because honestly, i'm pretty tired of private just wasn't the same shhow as before and the reason why i watched it in the first place is because of addison. Now,her love live sucks in PP. she is still a cheat, just like her initial character in greys and i think she deserves better. i like addison and mark.their age and character seems to mesh well together. they have a very good longtime foundation where they can claim to have "grown up"...crossing my fingers here...


Love love love this episode!!! this is how a show should be like.touching, funny and in the end happy ending :) now if only shonda will keep on keeping mark and lexie away from each other, everything will be just perfect!


I think that the miscarriage talk could have gone on a little bit longer... To me I felt like it didn't really discuss the whole problem.. :/ But thats just me. I LOVED Sandra's acting tonight! She just gets more and more amazing with each episode! All in all... I adored this episode! Props for Shonda


I really like how this season is starting. Very exciting indeed. It's the first time in months that I have to count the days (and hours)until I can watch a new episode of GA again. Anyway, great episode. I'm glad we get to see more of Sandra Oh's superb acting. Really, that scene in the OR was amazing. Also, I really love Mark and Lexie.. but seriously, I don't get why he is rushing into this whole marriage thing. Especially during this time. I cannot wait for next week's episode. When Derek will finally talk about the shooting and help Cristina out in her most trying moment. Hmmmmmm.


Awesome episode. Thank you, Shonda! I enjoyed the interaction between Mer and April. And Owen was so...SO aaawwwwww!
And the scene at the beginning with the shrink; haha, Mer/Ellen Pompeo rocks!
Mer and Cris were amazing as ever :)
Bailey is back and I'm really happy about it - I just adore her. And Beth: my thoughts exactly! Oh, and: is there something new about Izzie? Will she be back for a couple of episodes?


I have loved Crowen the first time I laid my eyes on them and I will always love this two and love them each and every day or week for that matter. I'm a confessed owenstina/crowena addict. Oh man, I'm so overwhelemed. Shonda my hero thank you for Owenstina! The morning after scene was really cute and sweet. Owen, the man of my dreams, Sigh! I am really bothered about what Cris is going through but I have high hopes she will eventually get better although it will take a while. The good news is Owen is there to take care of her and to love her for better or for worse. The kiss on the seminar room right after the case presentation was subtle but really romantic. I love the look on Owen eyes whenever he looked at Cristina. Mer and Cris are definitely soulmates. I could not imagine one without the other. It's gonna be impossible to separate the twisted sisters. The last scene was so poignant, funny and romantic. I dont think the miscarriage hasn't sink in yet. Something must be brewing in the coming episodes for Mer and Der! Ive got a funny feeling. I cant wait for Lexie and Mark to get back together. Mark finally grew up right before our eyes. Well all in all I've got nothing to complain. Thank you very much grey's anatomy for making my day every week!


Okay, now that I've had my rant, I have to say that I really enjoy this board. Overall, many posts on this venue increase my appreciation of the show and characters that I love and point out details that I may have missed. There are a lot of discerning & insightful people. I cannot seem to "join" as a user. Every time I go through the process, a problem arises. Especially when I try to import a photo. So, I'll be a guest forever. And forever is how long I will miss George O'Malley! :)


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.
