“Dream a Little Dream of Me”

Fairytales dont come true Meredith uttered as she stood in the very same spot we last saw her in Season 4 in the midst of her house of candles Suddenly we were reminded of all the things we feared might happen when Derek left her that night to end things with Rose Could things already be coming to a crashing halt If you only caught the first few minutes of this episode you might have thought the fairytale ended with a fatal car crash involving Derek Thankfully that scene wasnt real as we learned that Meredith was being plagued by those haunting images in a recurring dream But creator Shonda Rhimes wasnt done playing with us yet Rose later surfaced to deliver the news that she was carrying Dereks baby Again another ruse but I have to admit I enjoyed the way the writers turned the tables on us and acknowledged the obvious obstacles they could have thrown at Meredith and Derek yet they did not Instead it looks like these two read more

Freedom

Over an hour into tonights two hour finale it hit mewe needed some humor to lighten up this very dark episode Nothing seemed to be going right Meredith and Derek were at each others throats over the latest loss in their clinical trial Rebecca kept getting worse and was in need of serious medical attention but Alex was in serious denial and the man in cement seemed to be doomed among other things So is it wrong that when Cristina snapped at Erica in the OR I almost cheered For the first time something seemed to be going right---Cristina was in the zone and finally standing up for herself The only thing better than that was the look of shock on Ericas face when the Chief agreed Hahn needed to back off and let Cristina do her thing I take that back the best moment came later when the Chief confronted Hahn after the operation and told her she needed to handle the residents better You need to learn how to teach without crushing their read more

Losing My Mind

Finally after weeks of speculation theres a kiss Not the kiss that is supposed to shock us all thats supposed to come next weekbut an intriguing kiss nonetheless Im talking of course about Callie and Erica in the elevator While the motivation for the lip-lock could obviously be attributed to Ericas desire to rile up Mark who is turning over a new leaf one could also argue that it might have had more meaning for one or both of the ladies involved Hopefully next week will shed more light on that oneMeanwhile Derek and Meredith found themselves working with a new patient Greta Regina Taylor who appeared to be suffering from a romantic delusion involving a guy she allegedly met on a cruise Gretas only request was that they hold off on the surgery until he could arrive which prompted a huge debate between Derek and Meredith do they wait for this phantom love and sacrifice precious time or do they move read more

The Becoming

It was not a good day according to Dr Wyatt Amy Madigan but Im inclined to disagree While Meredith may be fooling herself into thinking she can accept that Derek is with Rose Derek clearly got a dose of reality when he slept with Rose and found himself only thinking about Meredith Cleary these two are meant to be together but I have to admit the longing and anticipation is driving me crazy In truth though the angst also creates some of my favorite moments When Derek stood in the hospital hallway between Rose and Meredith and in essence chose to spend the night with Meredith at the hospital rather than go home with Rose I was melting That was until Meredith advised him to leave anyway but Derek did return with a bottle of champagne and a beautiful monologue about celebrating when they finally get it right True he was talking about when they finally succeed at treating a clinical patient but I think we al read more

Piece of My Heart

Reunited and it feels so good Yes it was almost like old times when Addison showed up tonight If she hadnt had to spend so much time catching up on all of the soapy Seattle Grace details it might have felt like she had never left And I almost allowed myself to be tricked into thinking she might return to Washington when the Chief suggested he could start her paperwork despite knowing that Private Practice is fully expected to return in the fall So I guess I shouldnt have been surprised when she dismissed the idea of a permanent stay by saying I needed to come back to see that it was right to leave Perhaps thats how you feel Addison but I still think you belong at Seattle GraceAside from Addison there seemed to be a lot going on tonight For starters Ava Elizabeth Reaser returned to tell Alex she was preggers and it was a distinct possibility that the baby was his Alexs response could best be describ read more

"Lay Your Hands on Me"

After a long absence Greys Anatomy returned tonight with what could be the last glimpse we have at Seattle Grace for a whileand they did not disappoint In a change from the norm Bailey talked us through tonights episode and from the moment she stated God created man and its been downhill ever since we knew that it was going to be a night unlike any otherDerek and Mark started things off by taking what looked like a light-hearted nature walk through the woods Their travels ended up on a picturesque hilltop where Derek exclaimed he was going to build his dream house He wasnt kidding With the architectural plans already mapped out Derek blindsided Meredith with the news and her reaction was less than enthusiastic Perhaps she was as shocked as I was to learn that McDreamy had put any thought into ever moving out of his shiny trailer Or perhaps she was too preoccupied with her culinary creation for Lexie to properly process the news Either way I was disap read more

It's Good to Be Scared

Episode Recap Crash Into Me Part Two December 6 2007What a night Mer finally tells Derek that she doesnt want him to date other people and he goes and locks lips with Rose at the hospital Shonda couldnt have planned that cliffhanger any better herself because tonights episode marks the last new episode available this month All I can say is I really hope that Derek doesnt choose Rose over Meredith Its true Mer was slow to open up to him but how can he walk away from her now Especially after she told him I dont want to lose youMy heart really goes out to Bailey too Tonight she put her troubled marriage on the line to operate on Shane Gale Harold a white supremacist Though it didnt really surprise me that Shane was more concerned about his ruined tattoo than he was about how Bailey had saved his life For me it was almost harder to watch Tucker Cress Williams disregard the importance of Baileys job and then suggest to George that their marr read more

Loose Ends

Hi everyone I hope everyone is enjoying some time off this week ABC treated us to a brand new episode of Greys Anatomy last night and I still need to catch up on the latest drama at Seattle Grace So feel free to post your thoughts here and Ill be sure to write up a full recap soonEpisode Recap Crash Into You Part OneSorry for the delay everyone I wish I could have watched this episode sooner but better late than never So lets get to recapping Watching Cristina dance it out at the start of this episode was priceless Mer on the other hand probably wont be joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars anytime soon It was almost like watching Elaine dance on Seinfeld but I guess thats beside the point In between her moves I was glad to hear Mer finally say that she didnt want Derek seeing other people Unfortunately when the moment came for her to tell him she chickened out and walked away Oh well Judging from the previews it looks like ne read more

Just Like Old Times

Bailey and Derek, discussing hair products. Chandra Wilson, Patrick Dempsey by Richard Cartwright/ABC

Episode Recap Forever Young November 15 2007Tonight Bailey took charge and let the residents know there was a new boss in town but she soon lost her drive when an old crush Marcus DB Woodside appeared in the ER So while I was excited to see the old Bailey laying down the law early on I was equally disappointed to see her turn to mush for a guy who obviously used her all throughout high school And so we had our theme for the night---Seattle Grace is just like high schoolWhile George and Izzie did their best to avoid each other tonight rumors regarding their rocky relationship kept cropping up everywhere I have to admit watching Izzie confront George by saying I heard we broke-up certainly took me back to my school days Sure the hallway dramas back then were painful to watch and even more painful to be a part of but a part of me found myself longing for those days again Thanks for making me all sentimental ShondaOf course at every school theres u read more

The Chief Gets a New Girlfriend

Alex learns to "just say no." Justin Chambers by Ron Tom/ABC

Episode Recap Physical AttractionChemical Reaction November 8th 2007Chemistry Either youve got it or you dont And tonight Gizzie fizzled I thought it would bring me happiness to see this pairing finally come to an end but it left me kind of sad instead Here were two people who went to great lengths to be together only to find that the thrill was gone once the moment of truth came And in the wake of all that drama a marriage was destroyed and reputations have been tarnished The question now is where do George and Izzie go from here On a happier note the Chief did get a new girlfriend tonight Okay so thats not entirely true but it was funny how Mark suggested thats what Derek had become Im loving the chemistry between all three of these guys who remind me of schoolboys at recess the way they playfully tease and taunt one another They definitely bring a fun element to the show that otherwise seems to be lacking this seasonMeanwhile Cris read more
