"Great Expectations" Episode Guide Live; Forums Open For Discussion

by at . Comments

The episode was called "Great Expectations" and we think it's safe to say they were met. The pacing was terrific throughout, and the three developments at the end - not one but two marriage proposals, and one reconciliation rebuffed - were certainly not what we anticipated.

you know what??
You know what would actually make me happy??? I haven't watched the episode yet..
But when I hear that Baily and Izzie are putting up "Denny Duquette Memorial Clinic"...I just couldn't help it...tears just welled over.. This is great, i love it..I love Baily and Stevens..They are really alike you know, they are both surgeons and they will both get emotionally involved with patients...
they have found the middle ground..
and right now our health care is in crisis, i think they did a GREAT , HONORABLE and wonderful thing

I agree that George and Callie are moving a little too fast. From the look of the tears in Callie's eyes in the preview maybe she knows it too. Maybe she tells George she loves him but that it is too soon for him to make this decision. I kind of hope so because I think they will have a better chance of making it if he has time to process his father's death first. He was sweet though when he said they didn't have to have sex that just looking at her made him feel better. And, Burke and Cristina. How perfect for them. I loved that she never said he was right, just that she knew he didn't think she was right. I loved that the first thing he said in his soft voice that he saves for emotional times was, "Marry me." I loved the way he looked at her with so much love in his eyes and I loved that tears welled up in her eyes. I know it is news to everyone on this website. But I really love this couple. Of course she didn't say yes, yet, but I have no doubt that she will. This was a big step for Cristina to show him that he was more important to her than winning.

Oh my God! Why does EVERY episode make me cry?! Yes to Yang and Burk…No to George and Callie, and McDreamy as Chief…..and what's REALLY going on w/ Addison and Alex?????? The Danny Dukette Memorial Clinic….saw that comming from a mile away…just didn't expect the Natzi to come up with the idea.

Agreed. I'm so proud of Christina, she's back on my good side.
I'd like for George and callie to just stay at "I love you" right now and not engaged yet. Or at least wait a while before becoming engaged. I'm sure he really does love her, but I think he needs more time.
I wish Chief would stay, now that he can't have Adele, until Bailey is an attending and can take over. The others would be great, but she is the Nazi.
I predicted as soon as I heard about the clinic that's would Izzie would do. In fact, when she got the money, I bet that she would open up a new wing or something and name it after Denny. That's good closure.

Hooray! Burke asked Cristina to marry him. I am so happy about that. George and Callie are getting engaged, too. Even though neither Cristina or Callie answered yet, I heard marriages talked about. I heard there woud be marriages, so I am hoping this spring we will have at least two. I felt sorry for the Chief when Adele closed the door. Maybe he will stay on as Chief. It was kind of funny seeing the four attendings sitting on the floor outside of the Chief's office, kind of like the four interns. Loved it when Sloan said he could be Chief and Burke said, "I don't think so" and Addison and Derek agreed. Remember the poll on this webiste about who should be Chief and some people voted for Bailey. I thought at the time that was kind of crazy since she is only a resident, but the Chief clearly thinks that in time she would be a good chief of surgery. It was nice to see Derek come home at the end and reassure Meredith than even if they yell, he will always come home.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
