Grey's Anatomy Season Synopsis, Questions For 2011

at . Comments

The first half of Grey's Anatomy's seventh season is in the books.

It's hard to believe we first started watching the series in 2005. How time flies. In the aftermath of "Adrift and at Peace," let's look back at where we stand heading into this season's winter break and what's to come when new episodes resume January 6 ...

Derstina Bonding

Yang is back. After a major internal crisis and a brief stint as a bartender, the fishing trip with Derek looks like it was just what the doctor ordered (pun intended).

Look for her to get her mojo back ... but fallout from the outdoor excursion may remain.

Owen supported Derek's effort, but Meredith did not. They clashed in the O.R., where Hunt labeled Mer a "reckless" bad influence. Things may be looking up for Cristina, but will her relationship with Owen last? Does it impede her, as Meredith says?

Out of Africa: Arizona showing up at the door Thursday was heartwarming ... and heartbreaking. After putting Callie through the ringer over their plans to have kids, then leaving her in the airport, will she be welcomed back with open arms?

It's hard to see a way in which Calzona isn't in this for the long haul, but judging by the door slammed in AZ's face, there may be more growing pains before a permanent reunion.

After the "you look really pretty" line too ... harsh. Was it deserved?

Hot GA Couple

Henry is the new Denny: Former Felicity star Scott Foley's character had quite the profound effect on Teddy. She claims she's helping him to fill the void left by Cristina.

If Yang returns to form, will Teddy's interest in Henry fade? Or is it just beginning?

Her reasons for helping him may be complex, but there looks to be a spark, too. Considering how things turned out the last time a doctor got engaged to a patient, there may be some trying times ahead for Teddy and Henry. Just no ghost sex Shonda. Please.

MaLexie and MirEli: Are Mark and Lexie finally back on after he showed the kind of persistence we never knew he had and won her over at Joe's? The way she chose to stay, it looks like it. As far as the nurse who asked out Bailey, cross your fingers for her.

Her last boyfriend was stolen by Shonda for Off the Map, after all. That hurts.

What do you think will happen with these Grey's Anatomy story lines, and what stood out to you the most about the first half of the season? Are you happy with it so far? Discuss!

I like how there's just now merder these days, its really pathetic. Makes me not wanna even watch it. Quite sad.


MARK AND LEXIE - YESS!!!!!!!!!!!! I am thrilled with this couple. So glad Shonda listened to this fan base - and it's a big one!! - and put this couple back together.


Have to admit I am calling Altman's new'love' interest sick guy. I am so ready for Cris to get back to the hospital, so Merder are reprotedly not cured so will the remaining episodes centre on their struggles to get over the shooting?


I really don't like Mark & Lexie as a couple...I know a few guys like Mark & after years of non-commit & me,me,me, they always seem to marry very dominant women. It's hilarious sometimes, and I simpply don't get it.
This what I'd like to see for Mark. The dynamics would be great (and humerous), and maybe it would help us all figure out why those relationships happen and seem to work.


It's possible that's how Callie gets over her anger. But I think we have to see animosity between them first before that happens or else the whole shutting the door at her face thing will be kind of pointless.




The lack of MerDer scenes continues to be annoying. So when Cris is over her PTSD, MaLex are an everyday couple again perhaps they'll also have a lack of screen time with their chosen love interest too to make it fair. Had a thought. Perhaps Callie will get over her anger at Arizona cos the shooting will remind her to make the most of the present.


I'm sick of the lack of MerDer too! I wanna see more about them. I feel like the last few episodes have done nothing to show any development in their relationship :(


I really love grey's anatomy but I'm sick of the lack of merder :/




Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


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."
