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 love LOVE scenes on Mer and Cris! They are awesome!!!
I'm hoping that there as many scenes on these 2 soulmates as it is in this episode!!!


My favourite scene of today was Mark and Callie drinking.."paint it beige"....i love them together...they are best pals just like Alex and Meredith


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.

yeah i don't really wanna live in an easter basket.
yeah i know you want to live in the bat cave.. i love calzona. they're just hilarious


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 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!!!! 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

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.
