Grey's Anatomy: Six Days (Part 2)
(S03E12) Don't panic, folks. I'm just here to help Joel cover Grey's while he's off covering the TCA for us. I'm as shocked at you are that I, of all people, is covering this show at all, especially with what I've said about it in the past. But yes, I watch this show now and am pretty much caught up with everything, but just the same, be gentle in your comments. Please? Thanks. I'll keep it short.
The theme for this episode seemed to be all about becoming personally involved. Let's go over how this theme appeared among all the show's characters.
Addison and Mark. First I have to ask -- was this the first time we learned of Addison's abortion? I sort-of recall hearing about it prior to this episode, though it's possible it's one of the few I missed. The theme of becoming personally involved is actually opposite in this case, as Addison makes it known she didn't want to have a relationship with Mark that meant he'd be the father to her child. Ouch.
George has come a long way, hasn't he? While he throws blame in a fit of rage over his father's condition, he gets a harsh look at what it means to be a doctor from the other side of the lab jacket. Of course he's personally involved with his father's situation, and I think it's all made him a better doctor.
George and Callie. In a move that shows how much she genuinely cares for George, Callie skips out on the surgery of a lifetime to stand with George in a time he needs it most. Their relationship is coming back together at a pace that I like, one that's not thrown in our faces suddenly.
Bailey and Izzy. Deep. Bailey makes the right call taking Izzy off the surgery. Ironically she finds herself faced with a similar sort of personal involvement with George's dad. Will she have a different outlook now on what Izzy's doing in becoming personally involved with patients?
Addison and Alex. It was obviously coming, and now here it is. How do you all feel about the two of them together? A match made in heaven or hell? Maybe a little bit of both? I'd say it's pretty evident that Alex's future in plastics is seriously in jeopardy once this news goes around.
Meredith and Thatcher. Meredith sees she has more in common with her father that she thought, and finally moves to reach out to him. I wonder if he's going to stick around for a while of if this is just a short visit.
Oh, and thank you Thatcher for suggesting the ear plugs; we were getting sick of that storyline, too.
