I miss George and Izzy. Who the hell is writing these episodes anymore. This show has gone to crap. It doesn't even compare to the first 3 seasons. It just keeps getting worse and worse. Bring Burke back. He may have been an a-hole but he was an excellent actor.

Der is behaving like he was with Addisson.he wanted mer because she sees grey.And now he can't look at her. It is alright for him to lie when it comes to keep Zola..Where are all the promises in the post-it?no running and to love even when he hates her..he is breaking all the vows.She deserve better.

It's official. I can't take too many weeks of Derek being this unbearable so I hope it ends soon. It's like Shonda and crew saw Patrick's performance in Transformers 3 and decided to add a bit of flair to Derek. Nope, not working (at least not for me). He's far from perfect so why is no one giving him a much needed reality check???

Owen may decide to leave after Christina has the abortion.

Here are my bets: Someone gets fired from the hospital and someone leaves: Meredith & Richard
Social Services comes looking for Meredith and Derek: Duh, of course!
Henry undergoes a new procedure, one that causes lots of worry.
A resident goes unconscious at the hands of another resident: Alex at the hands of Cristina.
A doctor makes a big decision that could ruin his/her reputation: Richard takes responsibility for Meredith's action
Christina and Owen's fate as parents is decided: I'm thinking she's gonna go through with the pregnancy but I'm hoping she'll stay true to herself and end the pregnancy. I'll check back later to see if I was right!

this is how i think it will happen:
well we know mer gets fired and i'm guessing that the chief will choose to leave at the end of the episode
i hope zola doesn't get taken away from them, i think alex makes it so that mer and derek can keep zola and that makes mer like alex again (at least a little)
henry will make teddy worry, but he'll be fine
cristina accidentally/purposely zaps alex while in surgery, and afterwards starts being a little nicer to him cuz at the beginning she is really mean:(
richard leaves the hospital to spend more time with adele
and i really couldn't say whether cristina keeps the baby or not...i don't think she should because it goes against everything that she has said or done, but i think she'll keep it. she won't have a miscarriage, that's been done too many times already

•Someone gets fired from the hospital and someone leaves. (Meredith and Lucy leaves)
•Social Services comes looking for Meredith and Derek. (No big shock, they would be looking anyway)
•Henry undergoes a new procedure, one that causes lots of worry. (he needs a pancreas)
•A resident goes unconscious at the hands of another resident. (Alex goes unconscious, probably at the hands of Kepner or Avery (the others are too close to Mer)
•A doctor makes a big decision that could ruin his/her reputation. My guess is Alex or Mer. •Christina and Owen's fate as parents is decided. (Cristina says she's going to do it but she won't.)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

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.
