That was a lot to take in.

On last night's "The Other Side of This Life," the trials of Jane Doe took another disappointing turn, tensions continued to grow between Izzie and George, Cristina went wedding dress shopping (!) and Meredith endured yet another loss (and an inexplicable slap).

But it was almost overshadowed by Addison's road trip to L.A. and the cast of characters she encountered there. We've got all the action from the two-hour event recapped for you - including a list of the new California characters - in our exclusive episode guide.

Our gallery is also up, and we're working on our music guide (let us know if you can help us find any missing songs and lyrics), as well as our list of quotes. We'll be updating throughout the day, so check back often!

Addison and Pete

hmm!! Shonda is sure playing with fire


Here is the link from E-Online about Mer/Der! I am speachless about all of this! I dread watching the last (2) episodes now that we basically know where Shonda is going with this storyline!
What a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!. http://www.eonline.com/gossip/...


Check out this link I found out about the girl in the bar..does this sound like she will be in next season or not??????? http://televisionista.blogspot...


What????????I haven't seen that spoiler about the girl in the bar has a contract for 13 episodes! Where did you see that! That can't be! I had already convinced myself that the girl in the bar was NOBODY and the PROMO was trying to throw everybody off! If thats true, I'm furious! I know that SHonda basically said she was turning things upside down, but come one!!!
To me, if we does this to Mer/Der, she is going to lose so many people. SHe needs to realize the storyline with Mer/Der is what pulls so many of us in each week! I hope that isn't true!


so according to kirstin's spoilers...
the girl from the bar has been offered a contract for 13 episodes, I am freaking out, what kind of BULLSHIT is that!!!!


Merder are the reason i watch GA in the first place but i was watching some bits and pieces of season 1 & 2 yesterday.. UNBELIEVABLY different from season 3, its as if its not the same writer anymore. Seems like Derek's character in particular has been taken over/invaded by an alien. I can not relate to this selfish and unreasonable derek at all, no eye sparkle, no mcdreamy smile, SERIOUSLY!!! or has he always been like that? Meredith, that girl is really brave, if it was me that all those horrible things happened to, i would have been at the Psychiatric asylum by now. The only epi i can say is as good as those of 1 & 2 from season 3 is epi 319 'my favorite mistake'. The spin off on the other hand is another issue, why Shonda wants to do that i have no idea.I just hope they have some staff that read this stuff, becos here is what i want to say... Shonda pls for the sake of your fans bring back our old GA, all this drama is too much and pls dont break merder.....


I didn't like the episode and the idea that the relationship that comes to an end is Burke and Cristina


i think the spinoff was soo boring and didnt deserve two hours.
it doesnt deserve to be a show !
it just copied all of the stuff off of greys.
seriously !?!?
it sucked. and that addison kiss with the guy ?
it was sicknastyyy .
they were like eating each other
urgggggh serisouly what is greys coming to ?? give it back pleasee ? i mean i guess shonda is just running out of ideas i mean breaking up merder and killing susan ?
- WTF ? idk who agrees with me though seriously ?


ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION TIME! Come on. Seriously, I've been looking forward to it. Can we have a round table discussion soon? Pleaseeeeeee? That guy that Kissed Addison? Talk about McCute/McHot.


One of the songs in the episode was 'Your Song' by a British artist names Kate Walsh (no joke)
Check her out!
http://www.myspace.com/katewal... Haven't you heard I'm stuck on a verse
I'm stuck on a boy who fills me joy
I knew I was wrong to jump straight on into
This picture so pretty but he is so pretty to me And he doesn't know just how far I would go
Just to kiss him, he doesn't know how I pine So I'll make whirlpools and watch him sparkle
And we'll make love make magic And haven't you heard I've fallen headfirst
And he loves me so we're two in a row
just look in his eyes they're blue as the skies are
Picture so pretty but he is so pretty to me So I'll make whirlpools and watch him sparkle
And we'll make love make magic But I couldn't tell you
Just how long it takes you
Cause words don't make
What I make with him Haven't you heard I'm stuck on a verse
I'm stuck on a boy who fills me with joy
I knew I was wrong to jump straight on into
This picture so pretty but he is so pretty to me


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.
