“Grey’s Anatomy”: pretty pictures and a pretty intense preview

on

As roc reminded us earlier this week, our favorite shows

are running out of new episodes. That includes Grey’s Anatomy, which is my personal choice for 2007’s

Best Comeback From a Lukewarm Season.

To make us feel better, ABC

has released some midseason (which could be end-of-season) promotional

stills of the cast. And not sharing the best ones with you would just

be wrong. So here’s a little eye candy for your weekend viewing pleasure.

 

Yes, I know Kate Walsh

has moved on, but I want the real Addison back. Maybe wishing will make

it so. You can find more Grey’s pictures, including the male

cast, here. You know, those guys are not bad

looking, for boys.

We’ve also got a preview of

Thursday’s episode. It’s a bit spoilerish, so don’t watch if you don’t

want to know. And if you do watch, grab a hankie — it’s a jerker.

**SPOILER ALERT** For real.

I mean it.

 

I’m sure you remember the last

episode, but a couple of things that happened have a direct bearing

on what happens Thursday, so I’ll refresh your memory. Derek

kissed Rose, right before Meredith told him she didn’t want him seeing

anyone else. Bailey’s husband, who waited for hours for a lunch date

that never happened, sent her a message that he’s through waiting. And

not just for lunch.

Did I mention spoilers? Here

they come. As you surmised from the preview, Bailey’s son is rushed

to the emergency room after an accident. Bailey is narrating this episode

instead of Meredith, so you know things will get tense. I don’t want

anything bad to happen to Bailey. I love me some Bailey.

Derek tells Meredith that he

wants to build a house for them. Of course, Meredith isn’t ready for

that, so McDreamy decides to take the next step with Nurse Rose (Lauren

Stamile
). I’d do the same thing — only about a season and a half

ago.

The other “bombshell” is that “Debra Monk

returns as Louise O’Malley, George’s mom, and shocks both Izzie and

Callie.” That leads to a cliffhanger, which, I imagine, is also

a bombshell. In any case, Izzie and Callie themselves are bombshells

and that’s all that matters.

Two additional story lines have

to do with a “major event” for Lexie and a faith healer who

challenges Alex and Dr. Hahn. I love it when somebody challenges Dr.

Hahn, because she flashes a look that could melt steel. Well, at least

it could melt me.

This episode very well may

be the season finale for Grey’s Anatomy, so savor every minute.

Especially the last five, which will be set

to
Caedmon Call‘s

emotional song, “Ten Thousand Angels.” I suggest stocking

up on Kleenex.
