Losing My Religion Season 2, Episode 27

In the conclusion of the second-season finale, Denny proposes to Izzie after receiving his new heart and Burke experiences hand tremors after awakening from his surgery. Meanwhile, the interns plan the prom for the Chief's niece (Tessa Thompson) while awaiting their fateful meeting with the Chief; George and Callie have a heart-to-heart about his feelings for her; and Meredith and Derek must make a decision about Doc. Mer also must decide between Derek and Finn (Chris O'Donnell). read more

May 15, 2006: Deterioration of the Fight-Flight Response/Losing My Religion Season 2, Episode 26

If all my favorite shows could end their seasons with a two-nights-in-a-row action-packed two-parter (some may call it a three-parter) like Grey's, I'd be overjoyed. But are you as exhausted as I am? Wow. After all of that rigamarole, Denny is dead. I guess I kind of expected it since it was the season finale and they needed something overly dramatic to end the year, but I, like a plethora of you comment-makers, really got to dig Denny. It made sense to a lot of us that Izzie would fall in love with him, mainly because Jeffrey Dean Morgan did such a fantastic job in his portrayal. What didn't make sense to lots of us was how unethical Izzie was being, so it didn't surprise me when she said, "I thought I was a surgeon, but I'm not, so I quit." Very nice that Bailey supported her with a gentle "Izzie... " especially after the wrath she gave all of them earlier ("Where are my suck-ups?!"). My favorite Izzie supporter, however, was the last person we expected to show comfort: Alex. I'll... read more

May 14, 2006: 17 Seconds Season 2, Episode 25

First thing I have to say? How awesome is it that we don't have to wait an entire week for part two of this (literally and figuratively) heart-pumping season finale? For those of you who refuse to watch the scenes from next week at the end, let me remind you that the season finale concludes tonight — Monday, May 15th, from 9 pm to 11 pm/ET — not next Sunday. So OK, how ridiculous is Izzie? As my roommate Jason pointed out while we were watching, no one would be that stupid and put their medical career in jeopardy by cutting the cord on the machine that was pumping Denny's heart. I've heard of strange ways of showing affection, but inducing heart failure just so the man you love can jump to the top of the heart-donor recipient list? And then she brings George in on it? Loved his "What are you, crazy?" face. Poor George. Just when he's all calm and cool with Callie, he has this to deal with. It was great for George to explain to Callie that Meredith and Izzie are family to h... read more

May 7, 2006: Damage Case Season 2, Episode 24

Not everyone can say that they've fallen asleep at the wheel, but I unfortunately can. It was one of the most frightening experiences of my life, but luckily, no one was hurt, let alone killed, unlike the tragic situation in tonight's episode. I really felt for Marshall (fabulously played by Harold and Kumar's John Cho, whom I've only seen in comedies, so he was especially impressive). That scene with the father walking towards Marshall as if to slap or strangle him, but instead placing his hand on Marshall's shoulder, had me crying like a baby. And speaking of a crying baby, I had already started bawling when the newborn that Alex saved started to cry. What a great moment for Alex, specifically because Addison (aka "She Shepherd") wasn't available to do the C-section. Frances Fisher was excellent as the mother's mother, as was Graham Beckel as the mother's father and Gabriel Tigerman as the Clay Aiken look-alike husband. Meanwhile, it was about time Derek and Meredith had that clos... read more

April 30, 2006: Blues for Sister Someone Season 2, Episode 23

Seems like forever since we saw a new Grey's. Well, four weeks is a long time, but wasn't it worth the wait? I've got to say right away that I'm digging Chris O'Donnell as Finn the vet — he's a welcome addition and a great way for Meredith to get her mind off McDreamy. As a child of '70s game shows, I was eating up the Let's Make a Deal references Finn was making, asking Meredith to choose "Door No. 1" (going upstairs and taking a shower after they birthed the horse — "I want to birth a horse!") or "Door No. 2" (going home). Glad she chose Door No. 1, which, of course, made Derek jealous as all hell when he showed up with Doc the dog — how about Derek's face when Meredith walked down the stairs all showered and fresh? And how nice for Meredith to be the reason Derek gave Addison some good sex for a change. Meredith was adorable with Finn when she told him she couldn't have sex, but I was expecting her to say to him: "Umm... let's horse around." Loved the scene on the... read more

April 2, 2006 - The Name of the Game Season 2, Episode 22

I am officially old. Mare Winningham is playing a soon-to-be grandmother! OK – got that out of the way. What an awesome episode. So Meredith found out she has two stepsisters and a stepmother and Winningham did a fantastic job as the step-mom. I've already praised Jeff Perry as Meredith's dad Thatcher and what an incredible scene that was with George describing Meredith to Thatcher while Meredith listened in. I loved that gentle "Thank you, George" from Meredith. Present and (in my case) past Chicago theatre patrons got a big kick out of the fact that we got to see two members of the famous Steppenwolf Theatre Company – first Perry and then the phenomenal Laurie Metcalf. That scene with Metcalf as the dying mother giving her daughter all of that motherly advice had me crying like a baby and picturing Metcalf's name in the Outstanding Guest Actress category at this year's Emmys. If it weren't for Alex, the daughter would probably miss out on getting that advice in time. Nic... read more

March 19, 2006: Superstition Season 2, Episode 21

First, I've got to say I was really glad Denny survived his surgery, especially since most of the patients were dying one after another. Izzie would not have been a well person. Great scene when she said to Denny, after wiping her tears, "I can't fall for a patient," and he followed with "OK — good luck with that." Should be quite interesting now that Izzie broke up with Alex for telling Denny he was probably going to die. I did like it when Alex read George the riot act about how he was being a baby about Meredith. Someone had to tell him. But it just encouraged George to finally ask out Callie. Interesting to see some of the superstitions amongst the doctors, from Burke's lucky surgical cap to Addison awarding people with cups of hot chocolate — "Don't question the cocoa!" I loved Mary Kay Place as Webber's former AA sponsor. We just keep learning more and more about the characters each week — good to hear Webber's been sober for 17 years. I've been a Mary Kay fan s... read more

March 12, 2006: Band-Aid Covers the Bullet Hole Season 2, Episode 20

The real test to determine whether an actor is doing an effective job is not just how well he or she acts in a scene but how he or she re-acts. We had some really great reacting tonight. An obvious example is Sandra Oh's facial expressions as Cristina was forced to be Bailey's baby-sitter. How hilarious was she while changing the baby's diaper? Then when she told the baby to "Shut it!", I had to TiVo back and watch it again. But back to the reacting. Patrick Dempsey's face said it all while Meredith was explaining to Derek the horrible thing she did to George. Meredith asked Derek to act like a friend, not as her ex, and you could tell he was struggling just by the expression on his face. I love that he told Meredith to apologize to George in the elevator. Then T.R. Knight gave my favorite reacting performance of the night as Meredith apologized to George — you could tell just how mortified and hurt he was. And what a perfect way to end the episode, with Derek apologizing to Ad... read more

February 26, 2006: What Have I Done To Deserve This? Season 2, Episode 19

First of all, the title of this episode is my favorite Pet Shop Boys song (but what made the song extra special was Dusty Springfield, of course). OK, now. Poor George. As many expected, sleeping with Meredith ended up not being the experience George was hoping for. I was really glad they waited until the end to show that scene of the two of them in bed together, treating it like a flashback in George's mind rather than opening the episode with it. Hopefully he'll get over the devastation, and moving out will certainly help matters. I'm loving Sara Ramirez as Dr. Callie Torres — she'll for sure help George get his mind off Meredith. I was very excited to read that Sara was joining the show as a recurring character — she won a Tony award for her performance in Monty Python's Spamalot. Speaking of George, he narrated both the opening and closing of the show instead of Meredith. Perhaps they'll switch the narrator each week? You know I love me some George, but the show isn't ... read more

February 19, 2006: Yesterday Season 2, Episode 18

Oh no — it did not end that way! Are you not dying that Meredith and George got together?!? Absolutely the last thing I expected to happen. I thought for sure she was just going to hug him, say, "Thanks, George," and walk away, but then she took his shirt off! I'm sure the people in the next apartment heard me scream "Shut up!!" Then, after thinking about all that Meredith had just gone through, I got over my shock. But you know she's using him out of frustration, and our poor George is just going to get hurt. But hey, at least he'll get a chance to experience his obsession, especially since his "beast never sleeps." Oh, George. But let's talk about the rest of this awesome episode. So glad we finally got to meet Mark. Excellent casting, by the way — I'm already loving Eric Dane. He's got a definite Scott Speedman look to him. How great for McSteamy to say to Addison exactly what we've been thinking: "He's not in love with you; he's in love with that intern." And speaking ... read more

As Cristina and Burke perform a heart transplant on a depressed 10-year-old, they discover that spirituality is one more thing they don't have in common. Plus, this might be Alex's last day at work.

Meanwhile, George uses leeches to treat an avid outdoorsman with skin cancer; and a prisoner (Rosanna Arquette) swallows four razor blades to get a “vacation” from prison. read more

Much Too Much Season 2, Episode 10

The impending birth of quintuplets (and the surgeries on the newborns that are certain to follow) preoccupy the surgeons, but not completely: Burke gives Cristina a key to his apartment, but she's not overjoyed about it; Izzie and Alex are having an intimate “problem” (Alex is, anyhow); and a guy Meredith picks up at Joe's bar leaves her house the following morning with an intimate problem of a different sort. read more

Thanks for the Memories Season 2, Episode 9

It's Thanksgiving and Izzie's cooking a turkey, but nobody's excited about it.

And George is dragooned by his father and brothers to go on a turkey shoot. read more

Premise: Surgical residents at a Seattle teaching hospital hone their bedside manners on and off the job in this medical drama, which parlayed a cushy initial time slot (post-'Desperate Housewives') and a hefty dollop of sex and romance into immediate success. Indeed, in the opener, intern Meredith Grey sleeps with attending Derek ('McDreamy') Shepherd the night before starting work at Seattle Grace and discovers the next day that he's her boss. Their romantic ups and downs became the series' keystone.
