Recap

While both Izzie and George are on the operating table, Meredith tells us the five stages of grieving. Izzie open her eyes, and George does not.

Callie suffers a breakdown. She can't breathe, and Bailey and the rest go to the OR. Derek says they did everything they possibly could have.

No one knows if George is a donor, and the Chief tells them that he has called George's mother. Bailey is still speechless.

Amanda tells Lexie and Mark that John Doe is George ... whoever that is.

Alex doesn't want to tell Izzie that George is dead. Sadly, Izzie remembers parts of her dream, and says George might die in the army.

Lexie points out that John Doe is too tall to be George, giving everyone a glimpse of hope that maybe George is not dead.

Meredith has to explain to everyone that John Doe squeezed her hand and wrote with his finger "007" - but no one is buying it.

Everyone tries to call his phone, but it goes to voicemail. Callie knows a foolproof way to be sure - a freckle on his hand that looks like Texas.

She shakes her head and cries as it becomes official.

The Chief has to remind a shaken staff that George jumped in front of a bus to save a life, so everyone answer their damn pages so they can save some too.

Arizona sees a kid who is apparently misdiagnosed. The mother of the kid notices that everyone's crying. And George's mom comes to see Callie.

She reminds Callie that as his wife, she has to decide what to do with his organs. She says it's already hard enough what she's going through.

Cristina and Owen hold hands in the ambulance bay and find a victim of a boating accident who's missing an arm. A couple of girls arrive with a missing appendage.

Arizona tells Callie to go home to cry and scream. The mom of the kid points out that everyone's crying, including the intern working on her son.

Arizona insist there's no need to bring her son elsewhere.

Callie is debating with Alex to tell Izzie, so she can make the decision about George's organs. "You have to tell her, " she insists.

Sloan says that the arm can be attached to the girl who lost them, Clara.

Izzie just left a message on George's phone, when Alex tells her to stay alive and be strong for the news. This is it, folks.

Bailey is sitting on a bench outside, when Arizona sits next to him. Bailey tells her to go away, but Arizona is insistent on getting her opinion.

Derek is trying to comfort Meredith, who tells him that all she needs is for him to stay. Alex and Meredith take Izzie to see George, with Amanda telling them sorry and that she feels guilty.

Izzie looks at George's disfigured face, and holds his hand. She says he would want every organ in his body to be used to save lives.

Derek tells the Chief that the hospital board is planning a coup to oust him, and replace him with Derek. He said he'd think about it to buy the Chief some time.

Yang comes out of the OR to find no family or friends waiting for Clara so she orders Lexie to be her family and support system.

She's going to wake up in a lot of pain, so she needs somebody.

Miranda Bailey wants to know the names of the people getting all of George's specific organs - kidneys, lungs, liver, the works. She's having a hard time coping with what has just happened.

The next day, Yang and Owen start to have some hot sex, but they stop short because Owen is undergoing therapy. He can't lose himself in her unless he gets to the bottom of his own issues first.

Yang calls boating accident victim ceviche. As someone who watches Top Chef, that is pretty funny to me.

Clara is awake says she hates the people who left her. However, she doesn't want to call her mum and opts instead to send an email, which she dictates to Lexie. She does not mention the accident.

At the funeral, Amanda is the only one crying. Izzie starts to cry and goes away, followed by Alex, Cristina, and Meredith.

And she starts ... laughing. Laughing that George is dead, that Amanda is crying far more than George's mom when she haven't even met him. And she brings up the post-it marriage and everyone starts laughing.

People grieve in different ways.

Derek is kind of pestering the Chief to make his decision, but Richard is not having it. Mark finds Lexie in the locker room.

She needs to clear out his locker but couldn't do it.

Mark asks her, what did George have that all these women were so crazy about? Was he ... you know, hung? Classic Mark.

Bailey discharges Izzie, and they hug.

Andy is back, and her mom is sure this is not growing pains. Clara - is sending out more fictitious emails to her mum, saying she's fine.

Callie goes to see the chief about a job opening that wasn't happening, and it escalates into a shouting match as he tells her the guy she was going to replace is not going to retire for another year or two.

Callie cries in the elevator. Bailey, beside her, doesn't do anything.

Mark is pounding on Torres' door, and she emerges crying. Alex and Izzie get home to find Meredith and Derek doing the nasty in the stairs.

Louise O'Malley goes to talk to Owen, and says she's finding it hard to believe that his George - his boy - would join the army.

Owen says George did it to save lives because he is just that awesome.

Lastly, Clara tells Lexie that George, in fact, is better off because he's dead. "Just let me die!" she starts screaming.

Which brings us to part two of the premiere, "Goodbye" ...

george better come back some how, they messed it up completely by giving his organs and not trying hard enough to save him. it is him because they all called him 007 and he wrote it on mer's hand. and when she says welcome back sir, when they drill into his head, the eye is the same as george's. him and izzie were suppost to be together, they were happy when they died, they looked at eachother and smiled, then when alex ignored her DNR they were scared because they knew they were leaving eachother. george should have lived because izzies just going to die anyways. they should have left it at them both dying and letting them have a happy ending together. grey's anatomy for me ends at season 5, if george is gone, i'm gone.

I would LOVE to find out more about how they got the idea to do the episode on the girl in the boating accident. It hits VERY close to home. I know they don't pull these "accidents" to create outta the air, they base them on reality like Law and Order does. But the girl on this episode is 19 with red hair, thrown out of a boat suck up by the prop getting her arms severed and her leg barely holding on. Five years ago, my sister was 19 when she was knocked out of a boat, sucked under it and was torn up by the prop. Her arms weren't severed, tho one was barely hanging on and was successfully reattached. She had several surgeries ahead as well. Another closeness is that my sister was out with friends when the accident occurred and they didn't really know her family. Therefore when she got to the hospital, they knew little as well and it was a few hours or more before her family found out. So if there is a way to find out whose accident this was based on, email me let me know....This has left me VERY curious....Thanks

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 1 Quotes

In medical school, we have a hundred lessons that teach us how to fight off death, and not one lesson on how to go on living.

Meredith (narrating)

According to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, when we're dying or have suffered a catastrophic loss, we all move through five distinct stages of grief. We go into denial because the loss is so unthinkable we can't imagine it's true. We become angry with everyone, angry with survivors, angry with ourselves. Then we bargain. We beg. We plead. We offer everything we have, we offer our souls in exchange for just one more day. When the bargaining has failed and the anger is too hard to maintain, we fall into depression, despair, until finally we have to accept that we've done everything we can. We let go. We let go and move into acceptance.

Meredith (narrating)
