Oh yeah, I saw it and taped it of course! It was fabulous! They all looked so beautiful, particularly Kate Walsh, wow! And Sandra Oh was gorgeous and I loved what she said about Cristina and Burke. Isaiah, Justin, Patrick, all of them were just WOW!I'm kind of giddy after watching!!!

Thank you, thank you, Rose. I feel much better. Did you see the Oprah special today with the whole cast? Patrick, Isaiah, T.R., and Jim Pickens Jr. talk about the altercation and they all seem so cool about it. Patrick even said he thinks it made the whole cast tighter. I am feeling better that maybe they will all stay on the show.

YES I have good news for you BB, it was Burke and Christina in a very passionate kiss. I videotape every episode, and slow the speed through the previews because they play so fast. In slow-mo it was definitely them! Also, its very possible that after all the angst Burke and Christina fans are going through, the reward will be that the wedding is them. Hang in there, it could happen!

You're right, Rose. I guess the Derek and Meredith people went through this somewhat last year with Derek Choosing Addison when so many people wanted him to choose Meredith. I just hope you are right about Isaiah, too, and that this will be a glitch in their relationship and not mark the end of it. I really hope the writers will come through with a happy future for them even if the present looks horrible. Could anyone tell, was that Burke and Cristina kissing in the preview kind of in the middle of the scene where they are yelling at each other? I couldn't quite make out who it was. I hope it was them. At least I can look forward to that.

I can't imagine Shonda letting Isaiah go, he is too huge of a talent and too valuable to GA. I too think he will be around for a long time...I am disgusted with the hand tremor storyline too and what they have done with Burke and Christina. I was horribly disappointed with what they did with Derek and Meridith and the walking away stuff, but the writers redeemed themselves with the bar scene. So hopefully they will come up with something as good for Burke and Chistina.

I love tonights episode and think that things are going to really heat up. I don't think Burke is going anywhere. If you have ever known anyone who has been shot or even in a serious car accident you know how quickly things can change. It's a slow and painful recovery and you go through a lot of emotions. It will either destory you or make you stronger. In Burke's case I think it will make him stronger. Isaiah Washington is very talented and I think he will be around for a long time. A mistake was made and it's just time to put it in the past and leave it there.

Thanks for the encouragement, purplemerder. I hope you are right. I think he is thinking of her, but she is the one that wouldn't let him admit that his hand was well. In the beginning I don't know how much of this he was doing because he is afraid of losing her and how much he was doing because he is afraid of losing his career. But now they have backed themselves into such a corner that if Burke tells it will hurt Cristina as well as himself, so he doesn't think he can tell. And if Cristina tells it will hurt Burke as well as herself, so she doesn't think she can tell. There is no good way for them to get out of this. Even Bailey is now suspicious. Burke would be the logical one to step up and admit that he isn't yet well because that is what his character would do. I don't understand why the writers are changing his character so much. He was always the honest one no matter the cost. Now we are suppose to believe that he would actually kill George's dad rather than admit he has a hand tremor. I just don't believe it. It is completely against his character unless they just don't want him to be likeable any more. I honestly just hate this whole storyline. It's fun to watch Mer and Der and Izzie and Alex, but it is painful to watch what is happening to Burke and Cristina.

I know that it doesn't look good, but I don't think that they will write him off. It will be okay. I know that you support him and but it seems like whenever confronted tonight by George he just walked off and left it to Cristina to talk about. I think Burke is a good guy and all but he isn't thinking about Cristina or what this will do to her and her career if he was then he would not allow this to go on.

I'm not sure I can even talk about tonight's episode. I hate what is happening to Burke. I hate the previews. It is like my worst fears for my favorite character are going to happen. If it hadn't been for the blow up between Patrick Dempsey and Isaiah Washington, I would have more confidence that everything would eventually work out so then you can sit through the awful because there would eventually be some good. But I am so worried that Burke will be written off the show because of all of that uproar that I don't trust the writers to take care of this character that I love. He had very little screen time at all this week. The focus was all on George's suspicions and Cristina's struggle with keeping the secret. What about Burke? What about how he is feeling about all of this? I hate that they are blaiming each other next week. This is the kind of closure to the hand thing that I was hoping would not happen. I'm so depressed that it is hard to even be happy for Alex and Izzie who are rebuilding their friendship at least, or Meredith and Derek who are beginning again and trying to get it right this time. The show is not the same for me without Burke and Cristina together.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Sometimes we have to get lost. To find each other.

Meredith

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
