Grey's Anatomy #312: "Six Days" - Part 2
An emotional roller coaster of an episode brings the O'Malleys together in grief as they bid the final farewell to their husband and father; Izzy tells Bailey what she is made of; Addison gives into a new flame; Callie tells Mark she knows a good father; Meredith learns she has something in common with her own father; and Preston and George share a scene that should not have felt awkward.
T.R. Knight has made me very emotional this week. First I felt rage following his real life talk show appearance as anger I had built towards his co-star Isaiah Washington exploded when allegations of on-set homophobia had been confirmed.
Then, his adorable on-screen alter ego George O'Malley, was forced to let go of his urge to keep fighting for his father's life as his grief-stricken borthers finally turned to him to make that final decision for them after years of ridiculing his expertise.
Callie expressed her love for George by telling Mark how "to some men, family is everything".
Thatcher told Meredith he "snored like a trucker" and she got that from him, giving her a chance to see a certain family resemblance. Apparently, being a "stammering, mumbling, clumsy disaster" was not enough for her.
Izzy saved a life and explained to Bailey (and possibly herself, too) that she will always be both a surgeon and a person who gets emotionally involved, but she would never cross a line the way she had done with Denny.
Finally, following a confession to Callie that she had aborted Mark's baby, Addison revealed to an upset Mark why he would have made a bad father and why they would never have made a great couple. Will Addison and Alex make a great couple, though?
The previews for the next episode promise three major twists in the final five minutes of the episode and I wonder if any of them have anything to do with Mark and Izzy. "Great Expectations" airs Thursday, January 25.
