After last week's incredibly dramatic two-part finale on Grey's Anatomy
, this seems like the right time for a lighter episode. There's no need to try and top what was an emotions-filled episode, and we could all use a little breather, including the characters. One of the larger, overlooked yet important aspects of running a prime-time drama is the pacing from episode to episode. Not only do you want to not go through tons of story and plot in short periods of time, you need to make sure that the tone alternates between light and dark.
, like most successful shows, does this quite adeptly. It's the old Shakespeare model: follow a tragic scene with a comedic one. I can't be sure, but I'm willing to bet that there will be no stories of dire consequence in tonight's episode of Grey's Anatomy
, nor should there be. Our spoilers for tonight's episode, entitled "Great Expectations", are once again provided by Isabelle
