Amazing. Every time we think Grey's Anatomy can't raise the bar of intense drama any higher, it manages to exceed expectations. Part II of this three-part extravaganza was every bit as good as promised - and left many unanswered questions, as we have come to expect.

i like others was so hurt watching the episode last night. i was hurt for derek, i was hurt for the other interns. you have to know something was going to happen to meredith because christina kept asking about her. i pray she doesnt die off the show, i loved her character, and for the sake of derek i volunteer to hold his hand, wipe away every tear, and listen to his every word. just for him! i will be highly mad if this turns out wrong!


wow..i am with so many of you on all your comments...so i will not repeat them...i don't think that mer will die and so here are some things i noticed that are less dramatic because i can't think about mer dying anymore i didn't sleep last night because i kept dreaming of mer and her blue face...so here goes: 1. based on what Izzie said in her speech about the stuff that happened in the last year....so i guess that means that this is the end of their first year (i know some of us were wondering how much time had passed in shonda land) also last week when sydney said something about being cheir resident in the 5th year,,,which made me think the year is almost over. 2. I just thought it was crazy how they bring up things in past episodes that seem so not important but then they do ..for example...last week remember that george had that camera and was taking a picture of callie during triage ....well and Baily told him to take it back to the clinic where it belongs...and then this episode after the cheif tells alex to figure out how to help the families identify their loved ones he was in the clinic and there was the camera...... You have all mentioned so many of the great parts...but i also loved it when george and alex were in the morge and alex said to george "dramatic much" loved it.. Also, i don't think that alex is related to the pregnant women i just think that the fact that he is going to ge so close to her is going to help addison finally jump him...lol and loved alex saying he would notice if she was gone...i melted.


If Merideth is, in fact, dead, then perhaps a new writer/producer should be found for the series. This is an intelligent, entertaining show with a great cast. The on screen chemistry is excellent. Merideth Grey is a key character in the series. Hasn't the writer/producer killed off enough key people? Can this group of people not grow and entertain us without another one dying? It would be a shame to have to stop watching such a good show because it was allowed to drift into the mundane repetition of loss, etc.


WOW!!!! there are not too many times when I ever say wow, but WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!! That was the most intense episode I have ever seen! I was literally falling off the edge of my sofa last night. Brilliant, absolutely brilliiant, Shonda. (although i will stop watching the show if meredith dies and stays dead).
And to some of you that think our girl was giving up, I looked up the symptoms of hypothermia and it said that very early on you begin to loose concern and feel apathy to what becomes of you. (if you don't believe me then go to webmd.com and type in hypothermia).
But also as something to consider, GA does SO MUCH FORESHADOWING! I mean really, you have to think that the answer of what will really become of meredith and the others lies within the script somewhere.
**My absolute favorite part of the entire episode was when Addison walked into the room and said "Come On Meredith, don't do this!" That just broke my heart all over again!


Pink Mist is right Warm dead is the term when you have died from Hyprothermia. I read that the brain can be revived up to two hours after losing consciousness. The cold water considerably lowers metabolism, allowing the brain to withstand a much longer period of hypoxia.


wow wow wow wow i cried so hard! i really want her to live! It was cool seeing denny and that guy that blew up! I like how they put him into the episode! i cant wait 'til next week! :)


Everyone is saying that they wish ellis was dead. if merideth was alive and her mom is dead, mer would probably want to die for a very long time. i know ellis is a bitch but she's mer's mom, she raised her. Oh and if the rest of th 6 seasons her her "afer life" it would soooooo ruin the show. eww it would just be really bad.


They just can't kill off Meredith. Though it would make for TV history. I wouldn't want her to be a ghost narrating the story like in Desperate Housewives. That'd just be lame. My guess is that they bring her back to life. As for killing someone off, might as well it be Ellis Grey. It's her time go to.


I did see where someone wrote in the real medical world someone in Meredith's condition is not dead til she is warm dead.


i really dont know what to think i was disappointed when mer died and if they can not revive her i think they will loss a lot of viewers including me. the show just wouldnt be the same. i am a huge fan of the show but i cant see a lot of people still watch if mer is dead or if they do the after lfe thing.


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.
