October 19, 2006: Oh, the Guilt Season 3, Episode 5

As the episode's title hinted, overcoming guilt was certainly the ongoing theme tonight. The person most affected by her surrounding friends and fellow doctors was Izzie. My favorite two "Izzie influencers" were Burke and Webber. They both FTF'd her (Friends Tell Friends) - first Burke told her: "You quit. You quit being a surgeon. You have two good hands and you aren't using them. Feel guilty about that." And then I thought it was quite effective when Webber, trying to make Izzie feel better about the Denny incident, told her that way back when he was an intern, he too made a fatal mistake. But he stayed and he worked and he never made that mistake again: "Every day I get to save lives." Excitingly watching Cristina do the running whip stitch on a heart was the other turning point for Izzie. If only she'd frickin' deposit that $8,700,000 check! Cute and quick George-Meredith moment by the refrigerator at the end, by the way. (If you blinked, you might've missed Meredith go to grab the check and George swiftly block her hand and push it away, followed by a devilish George grin.) But let's talk about our gallant Cristina. What an awesome moment where she saved Burke's ass - so naturally covering for his quivering hand during surgery by carefully asking permission to do the running whip stitch herself since she is an intern who needs to learn. Amazing. I can only imagine the sex Burke and Cristina had that night. Alex: "I guess sleeping with your boss has its perks." Best George line: "This sucks. Cristina gets sex and perks." And while we're on the subject of being gallant, T.R. Knight, I applaud your bravery this week. So Addison finally told Derek the truth that she and Mark Sloan were more than a one-night stand, that she had been in love with Mark and lived with him for two months. Of course she wants Derek to have the brownstone! He better get more than just that damn trailer with the divorce settlement. Derek: "All I want is Seattle. I want Seattle and I never want to see you again." Derek took it even further with McSteamy after Mark tried to apologize "as a friend." Angry Spice Derek: "You're not a friend," as he walked out. Derek was so devastated and pissed that he couldn't fathom telling Meredith he was happy she broke it off with Finn. I was halfway expecting him to grab her and make out with her on that elevator, but his mind was still concentrating on the Addison-Mark devastation. Meanwhile, back at the (overpopulated hotel) ranch, Addison and McSteamy had some great postsex conversation. McSteamy: "At least now you won't have to feel guilty anymore." Addison: "Shut up." (She beat me to it.) Speaking of McSteamy, Callie's best line was to McSteamy himself: "You were sexier when you weren't talking." Oh no she di-int. I felt bad for George not getting the hint that Callie did indeed break up with him. Not even a bucket of fried chicken and sci-fi video games would change her mind. Loved how Alex and Bailey bonded at the end with Alex telling her he knew what Izzie was doing (that led to Denny's death): "I knew, but I didn't do anything to stop her. You weren't the only one." Bailey: "Alex, thank you." Never thought I'd see Bailey thank Karev for anything. It was nice to see all the interns try to defend their Bailey during the M&M (morbidity and mortality) conference, although Cristina was most concerned about getting "seats and snacks." I enjoyed Bailey retaliating towards Dr. Savoy ( Todd Babcock) when she mocked his reference to her hormone levels. After all the promos, I was looking forward to discovering just how the former husband and wife were attached and couldn't quite break apart after they were having sex. Oh my. Her IUD had dislodged from her uterus and it got hooked onto her husband's pierced penis (ouch) and it was embedded in her vaginal wall. Never thought I'd ever type that sentence. That was Tony winner Faith Prince (most recently on Huff) as the wife Sonya and Arye Gross (from the first few seasons of Ellen) as the husband Adam. Very funny having the daughter ( Margo Harshman) walk in and see her formerly married parents in that... position. Once again, a patient had a good effect on one of the doctors - Sonya saying she was going to confess to her husband that she slept with her ex-hubby convinced Addison to fess up about the McSteamy truth to Derek. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it was very fitting to have the Diana ( Justina Machado from Six Feet Under) story line. Bailey was back in true Bailey form, giving Diana inspiration and convincing her to have the mastectomy. Just in case you fast-forwarded and missed Kate Walsh's PSA, here's what it said: Breast cancer affects everyone - the 211,000 women who will be diagnosed with it this year and those who love them.

Komen Breast Cancer Foundation at www.komen.org or call 1-800-I'M AWARE (1-800-462-9273).
