Grey's Anatomy Episode Preview: "Support System"

at . Comments

Last night on Grey's Anatomy, a lion ended up on the loose in Seattle, yet did not make for the most interesting parts of an episode in which so much else transpired. The characters and storylines repeatedly took unexpected twists - not a small achievement for a show now almost finished with its eighth season.

For much more coverage, just read our Grey's Anatomy review for a full breakdown.

Looking ahead to next week, Cristina makes Owen tell her about the intimate details of his affair, which is destined to go badly, while Mark takes his authority very seriously when he steps in as chief for the day.

Elsewhere, Arizona, Callie and Bailey plan special night for Teddy. She could use it.

Get Sandra Oh an Emmy STAT!


I have to disagree with some of the comments below. While I think Grey's may be facing its end (and rightfully so, after such a long run), the writing has dramatically improved this season. Thoroughly enjoying the season.


@Cheerygal Think you are correct about the possibility of S8 being the last one for GA. The show is not officially renewed yet. TPTB could be waiting to see how much lower the ratings go before finalizing the contracts. I predict r
the ratings drop to the 7 millions by the SF. Don't know what is left for GA. They should get rid of most of the originals except Chief, Bailey, Karev, Derek and add a bunch of new YOUNG interns and return to the original premise of the show. Mer and Yang LOOK age 40 years old but they are written younger. No one buys it anymore and no offense to them. Fans should start accepting that the end is near and seal with it.


Grey's is dead. The ratings are in the toilet. The uncertain contract status of the original actors is largely to blame along with the lousy overall writing. Enjoy the show while you can. Hehe


I'm from Canada lol did anyone see the canadian promo??? Mer and Der were making out in the on call room..... Lol
I feel so bad for christina :( she deserves better! And I love how Mer is so supportive of her during this time.......
Love greys


@Kayla i watch for the 14 other people on the show that don't bore me. pretty good odds there. while i don't care about merder or crowen, i love the friendship between meredith and christina. not everyone has to enjoy every aspect of the show to be a fan of it. as for sandra oh-well, she is bloody amazing and i too hope she gets recognized for the efforts she's been putting in this season.


Loving this storyline with yang and hunt, she has always been through a lot but complicated peaple live complicated lives, she has said it herself when the shooting happened and she was all messed up, she said she´d rather been a simple girl.... but she is not.... I just don´t understand is why some say they do not see where this is coming from, if we already have several weeks watching all the problems of yang and hunt as a couple ...
I agree that shonda, and would say that lot´s cast members, is working at the Emmy this year. I hope this effort will be considered to be innovative and keep an audience interested and in an eighth season!
Next episode looks brilliant and i cant wait to see it!!!


@ xirena, wow, perfect said! Im curious too how they will bring it and why he did it


I like owen, thats why im so mad, I like him and then he cheats, christina doesnt deserve this!!


Cristina has been battling emotions since day one. She was left at the altar by Burke, spent a whole season trying to heal and then has been up and down with Owen since Season 5. I would love to see this come full circle for her, and really want to see what becomes of this. It might just be sex for Owen, but it's still devastating because it's Owen (who is really a stand-up guy) and not Mark. I really wonder what drove him to that point - though I think the baby factor has something to do with it.

Grey's Anatomy Season 8 Episode 19 Quotes

The human body is made up of systems that keep it alive. The one that keeps you breathing, the one that keeps you standing, the one that makes you hungry, and the one that makes you happy. They're all connected, take a piece out and everything else falls apart. And it's only when our support systems look like they might fail us that you realize how much we depended on them all along.


I have a right as your wife to know what you did.
