After last night's emotional episode of Grey's Anatomy
, we thought it'd be a good idea to take a tour around the blogosphere and see what everyone else thought about last night's episode. Grey's Anatomy
tends to make people unstable emotionally, and I view as the mark of a great TV show. Anything that can affect such a wide audience in any significant fashion is doing their job.
And, while the response to the episode was universally positive, some do admit that something so emotional can be difficult to watch, at times, especially if you specifically relate to a given character. Here's a selection of reactions to "Six Days, Part 2" from around the internet:Grey'sWriters
I'm sorry it was so hard to watch - but I believe that where there is darkness there is light. I believe that from death comes life. I believe that in the face of great pain, families become closer. Friendships become deeper. Life becomes sweeter. And I believe it's important to be reminded of the loss of love so that we will value and honor the love we have while have it.

This Website still seems to be solely consumed about Isaiah Washington and his homophobic slander. I must say, I truly enjoyed reading every word. "I'm wondering what they mean by 'addressed' exactly. I can't imagine that he'll be fired, so that just leaves forcing him to make another apology (which makes his most recent apology sound all the more sincere - not). He's probably going to be sent to sensitivity training or something of the sort, where he'll have to say, "I will not make homophobic remarks in public," a 100 times on a chalkboard."

We keep getting glimpses of Bailey's softer side. I am pretty convinced the reason she challenges Izzy so much on getting personally involved in cases is because she probably did the same when she was an intern. I think we saw that when we saw her struggle with dealing with George's dad. She doesn't want to see Izzie struggle with the emotional side of being a surgeon. Just a guess.
And of course, the whole Dad dying thing sucked and I just really tried to focus on the other stories since it was so sad! Interesting note though, that entire storyline was based on one of the writer's father...that was the dedication you saw at the end on of the show. Read more about it here if you like: http://www.greyswriters.com/2007/01/six_more_days_w.html. Cristina also showed her softer side tonight when she attempted to comfort George over the loss of his father....but notice the body language -- she has her arms crossed, still guarding herself. She never holds or hugs him. So, I guess George is going to go from loss to loose next week since he has his dad's ordeal behind him....and can't wait for the last 5 minutes...hope the show lives up to the promos (it usually does!) -----
All in all there seems to be a general agreement that last night's episode was awesome. Some may find it odd that I included the whole ordeal with Isaiah Washington
again. I did this for one reason only. With him at this point only having small parts here and there, I do wonder if they are planning on getting rid of him completely. In last nights show and the previous week before, he really did not have much presence. But, as I said, the overall response to "Six Days, Part 2" was overwhelmingly positive.
