While You Were Out: A Grey’s Catch-up for RedStar

weboy here… starting to wrap things up.

Since Red missed the first new episodes of Thursday night, I feel I should put in a little synopsis of Grey‘s over here (I did an Ugly Betty update just now over at my own place).

We opened with a cute shot that became a recurring theme: McDreamy in bed, watching Meredith… snore.  Meredith spent the episode as one of the attending physicians for George’s Dad’s surgery (with Bailey and Webber), while struggling, still, with her half-sister’s new kid and her Dad’s appearance at the hospital as a new Grandpa.

If things unfurled a little slowly, I nevertheless liked the developments in the big storylines – George’s Dad asking to have all the tumor removed, even if it affected a wide range of organs (and the growing bond – interesting, given all the brouhaha with that offstage incident – between George and Burke); Burke and Yang battling each other by refusing to be the one to speak first; Karev deciding he would rather be in OB/GYN with Addie than trapped with McSteamy (and the all too obvious attraction between them finally made explicit); and Torrez getting “her stare” on to get McDreamy to help the bitter girl with the awful scoliosis (I have scoliosis, and her case just hit me close to home).

As for Izzie… since it’s obvious she’s going to use her money to help pay for the girl’s surgery and rehab… why drag it out?  Why drag out George realizing his Dad is worse off than he thinks? And just how long can we watch Yang and Burke not speak, however astute the point is about their individual refusals to give in?

Tune in next week, I suppose.  And as the recurring image we started with closes us out… I wouldn’t discount the effect of this snoring thing.  Anyone who’s slept with a snorer can testify to how it can adversely affect a relationship.

Also a quick update for you regular readers: Red returns to town Monday morning, with blogging to follow…

    Despite my previous post on Greys, I thought this episode was really good. Though how has Izzy’s hair remaine so bad despite long hiatus where lowlights could have been administered???

    And also – does anyone other than me recognize Meredith’s dad as the gay drama teacher from My So Called Life???
