There really is not much left to be said on the return of Grey's Anatomy tonight.
George (TR Knight) is dead, Izzie (Katherine Heigl) is alive, and everyone in between is either having sex everywhere, trying to run a hospital on a budget, or dealing with a still cancer-stricken wife. This is perhaps the downside of having a very popular show (with very talkative cast members). Since the finale, the internet has been abuzz with speculations on George and Izzie and by the time we kick off with the continuation of the cliffhanger, everything's been said and done and it's sort of anticlimactic.
Nevertheless, in tonight's kick-off, we will finally see how Grey's
will deal with the already predictable plot. There's the highly anticipated funeral scene and return of Debra Monk as George's guilt-stricken mother (who still thinks her son have loved Callie - did he? I'm kidding). Sure, everyone's going to be devastated in the episode - except Arizona Awesome Robbins - but I think the most heartbreaking scenes still come from George's mom, and Callie.
At this point, pardon the George-centricity of it all, it cannot be helped. While watching the Grey's
premiere, you'll start to think that all non-George plots are just intermission until such time that we bury George so we can get this whole matter over and done with. But until such time, George will be felt throughout Seattle Grace, and all of us - lovers and haters alike - have little choice but to deal with it.
The other storylines worth watching for in the second of the two-part Grey's
season 6 premiere include Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) finding it hard to not have sex as instructed by Dr. Wyatt; Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) doing the deed virtually everywhere; and Callie (Sara Ramirez) still reeling from the death of her ex-husband.
