Grey's Anatomy Clip: The First 11 Minutes of "If/Then"!

at . Comments

We've seen the extensive photo gallery of next week's much-anticipated episode of Grey's Anatomy, "If/Then." Now we have your first video sneak preview ... the first 11 minutes' worth to be exact!

As Meredith puts her adorable adopted daughter Zola to bed and falls asleep, she begins to wonder ... what if her mother Ellis had never had Alzheimer's and she'd had loving, supportive parents?

The reverberations of a happy Meredith Grey completely alter the world of Seattle Grace as we know it. What if she had never met Derek in that bar and he had never separated from Addison?

What if Callie and Owen had become a couple long before she met Arizona Robbins? And what if Bailey never evolved from the meek intern she once was? We'll find out in a very special episode.

Watch the first portion of it below and see what you think ...

Exactly. And it all makes sense : Owen is still back from Irak, we could hear a reference to Teddy but I guess we won't see her. If Owen is not with Cristina, there is no need to bring Teddy as a mentor for her. The only thing I don't get at this point is why Callie is in Cardio, and not Ortho.


I agree with sookie.
Is it me or does Webber call Meredith "Ellen" in the elevator scene?


I really can't wait!!


@ Kay You're missing the point. Derek isn't a bad surgeon but he's also not a innovative one either. Ellis is searching for extraordinary and because Derek isn't with Meredith he was never inspired to do the clinical trial so he was never published and Ellis wants her surgeons at the top of their game and right now he just isn't. Meredith is also the reason he went back to do the tumor on Isaac, remember he drew it on the wall and talked it out with her? Everything good in his life is because of his relationship with Meredith. And because he never met Meredith at the bar, he got back together with Addison and is now in a miserable and loveless marriage which has made him miserable


@Kay I don't agree. Ellis, Richard, Addison, Owen, etc are the same.
Cristina is still hardcore in surgery, Callie is still badass.
About Derek, he said so he was absent, unhappy when he was with Addison before meeting Meredith in the real storyline.
And even if Ellis is a bitch in all worlds, at least she could have taught Meredith, and if Richard was there with her, she would have been happy and Meredith wouldn't be on her own to grow up.


seriously, WTF? this isn't a what if blah blah. it's what if every character got a sudden and completely random personality shift. This is horrible! People's entire personality is not shaped by experiences, some is just who they are. Ellis Grey= bitch. Always has been, always will be, Richard said so himself. Derek is suddenly humourless and no longer a good surgeon??? At least Bailey is what we've seen before. Others have just conmpletely changed for absolutely no reason except Shonda thinks it would be fun.


This is def gonna be an amazing ep! It looks very interesting... I kinda like Mer-Alex... I wonder if Izzie is even mentioned...


This is so fun. It's like watching a fanfic.
Though I'm glad it will all go back to normal after this.


This episode makes me think of that movie with Gwynett Paltrow where we see the possible future of her character if she takes the subway or if she misses it. I'm glad to see that some show can still have a few good episodes after many seasons not like *cough cough* gossip girl *cough cough*


This episode is gonna be the bomb!
