I agree better but not great. I thought the MerDer scene was very underplayed...I am dissapointed that the miscarriage was only about a minute long. Very dissapointed. Chris and mer scenes were amazing though....Just sad that the miscarriage was such a big deal but when they acted it out it didnt even last very long. I was looking foward to at LEAST a COUPLE minutes of emotion :/

I'm hoping that there as many scenes on these 2 soulmates as it is in this episode!!!

Worried about Christina. I have a feeling this is only the beginning of her problems. I think they're going to drag out her PTSD and marriage struggles with Owen all season. She probably won't be operating again for a few episodes at least. Loved the preview for next week. "She saved my life. I owe her EVERYTHING" truer words were never said! Go Derek for stepping up!!

Better but still not great. April and Teddy should just die now. They serve absolute no purpose on the show other than annoy me. I hate Owen. There, I said it. LOVED Sandra and Ellen tonight. Damn it, these women can act. As much as I love my Derek/Mark bromance, he needs to go to LA now. He can do so much better than Lexie. M/D were cute tonight but the miscarriage scene was just so rushed and unemotional. I felt robbed. I am so worried for Cristina. Next week seems to be great for her and Derek. Yay!

Great episode. Way better than the premiere. I'm worried about Cristina. Really worried. I really hope she can get out of the dark place. My two favorite scenes were Owen's speech to Cristina at Meredith's and how Mer said she already fixed her lol. And then Mer and Derek's scene when she told him about the baby. Soo good. Such powerful scenes. Callie and AZ, friggin amazing as usual. Mark and Lexie. I just want them to be together sooo bad. Never seen Mark this way about anyone, not even Addison.

This episode was AMAZING!!!! Loved every minute from beginning to end!!! Love Loved LOVED the end when Mer told Owen, "I fixed her before you got here but that was a good speeech" or something like that...lol that was hilarious!! Lexie wants so badly to be okay, but shes just not...shes not read to be in a committed relationship again, and thats ok, her and mark just need time they're meant for each other though. AND OH MY GOOOOOSSSH!!!! To next week!! Holy F to Derek saying if she goes I go....wow!!!! I'm so excited, shondas really upping the anty to every week!!!!

I loved this eposide. Cristina/Meredith scenes were flawless. That Sandra Oh is crazy talented. Bailey/Alex were awesome as well. So glad Bailey talked Alex into removing the bullet. Now he can start to heal. Mer/Der...Though short, amazing. Ellen Pompeo really hit it out of the ballpark. Lexie/Mark...Agh! I screamed at the end. Mark's practice speech was just perfect. Then when he goes to talk to her she assumes he is going to talk to her about her breakdown. I still think they will get back together. They just need time. Next weeks episode looks awesome. Can't wait!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
