"The Other Side of This Life" Preview

at . Comments

It's a decision that could change Grey's Anatomy forever... and spawn another hit show. But do we want it to?

When Thursday's two-hour episode, "The Other Side of This Life (Parts I & II)," hits the airwaves, the focal point will be Addison, who is currently considering a change of scenery.

A permanent change of scenery.

We're told that Addison talks with her god-daughter and her friends from medical school, and that she lands a job offer outside of Seattle. Many interesting people guest star in the course of Dr. Montgomery's road trip to Los Angeles, leading us to wonder if Addison (Kate Walsh) will return... or whether Private Practice will be officially born.

As for the former men in her life, Derek has to perform emergency surgery and Mark treats a patient who wants more than surgery. Preston has a reservation about marrying Cristina, and he turns to someone unlikely for advice on the matter. The doctors also treat a woman with a rare type of cancer, and whose daughter doesn't believe people make mistakes.

Here's a preview of "The Other Side of This Life" ...


As usual, we'll have our comprehensive episode recap, music guide, list of quotes and image gallery up after the show. We're looking forward to this event and will be watching right along with you. Follow this link for our episode guide, quotes and more from last week's "Desire."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
