I missed the first half hour (And Ugly Betty, so no spoilers here!)

I thought it was a good finale, the last two years we have had this big dramatic moment with Addison (1) and Derek and Meredith Sex (2) so I thought ending on a much softer note was really good.

There was cliffhangers there:

- George and the test...

- Interesting that Miranda didn't get Chief Resident, don't know how or why, missed the first part of the episode

- Meredith's half sister arriving at the same hospital where her mother died!

- Izzie to George: "I love you!"

- Burke leaving!

There was a lot of stuff that will lead us into Season Four!!! I thought it was a great ending to an all right season!!! Sandra Oh I think is brilliant!!!

Wow what an amazing episode!!!!

I HATE Burke!!!! He broke Christina's heart!! "I'm free...Dammit" She loved him so much!!

Derrick is on my list. Meredith almost died, she lost both of her mothers, and her father disowned her. Derrick needs to be understanding and stop wining about everything. Interesting that he turned down Cheif.

Poor Miranda!! I HATE Callie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want George and Izzie so badly. I love them. Callie can go to hell!!! I hope that Izzie is pregers. I feel bad for George, but it makes for an interesting storyline.

I already hate Meredith's sister and if she hooks-up with McDreamy...I will kick both of their azzes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want Alex and Addison!!!!!!!!! I hate Ava or Rebecca or whatever the hell her name is. I HATE her. I hope that once the spin off tanks they will go back to Alex and Addison!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what happens now to George? Can he still practice Medicine just not be a surgeon? I am a little unclear on the rules.

I am satisfied with Callie telling Izzie about trying for a baby that day. Izzie just needs to move on.

I am so disappointed with Alex. I think I liked him better cold as ice with his patients. I really wanted Addsion and him together.

Bailey not getting chief was interesting. I want to know the chief's logic in that. And did I miss the part where he tells McSteamy, why he wasn't named chief? I wonder if McSteamy will hook up with the new Grey?

Who was the actor playing Ava/Rebecca's husband?? He looks so familiar!!

Its either Jeremy or Jason London. They are identical twins so who knows. Jeremy was the skinner one at one time so it may be him.

^^ Thanks!! Still don't know where I've seen him before...

I hate the fact that Miranda didn't get Chief Resident and upset very about George and what does this mean for all of the interns? Are they still interns and just second year or what?? I'm confused!!!!

I agree it was a phenomenal episode. But I can't understand why some of you didn't actually 'get' the controversial Yang "I'm free!" scene. (If me and the other person who commented on this did, lol, but I think we did). OBVIOUSLY, she thought she could never commit, which is why she chose the words "I'm free..." It was her older self talkling about the situation. But she broke down and was having a FIT in her wedding dress and choker becauase they reminded her of what she had lost. That she finally DID want to go there. That much was clear -- that she loved Burke and wanted to spend the rest of her life with him -- when Meredith didn't notice Burke had gone, but Yang did. She pointed out the trumpet and all those other things that made Burke, Burke. She was in love with him. She was MADLY in love with him. And she wanted to get married. BADLY. Sadly, he left her (I still don't get why he did, since it was obvious he was spewing BS as SHE DID want to marry him), which left her "free," in her older self's mind -- but that didn't mean she liked it. Those were the only terms she could put it in. That's the only way she could phrase it.

The ‘Grey’s’ we’ve known is so over

End of storylines, relationships in finale gives fans little to look forward to


By Andy Dehnart

Updated: 10:02 a.m. ET May 18, 2007

The fourth season of "Grey's Anatomy" will probably begin with an ambiguously single, non-chief of surgery Derek Shepherd finding himself working in a hospital along with an attractive female intern named Grey who he met at a bar the previous evening.

Although the first season also began that way, this new Grey is not Meredith.

In one of the season finale's final scenes, George, having learned that he failed his medical exam, emptied his locker as five new interns walked in, ready to begin the first year on the job. One of them was the same woman who flirted with Derek the previous evening, and she revealed herself to be a character previously mentioned by name but never seen: Lexie Grey, Meredith's half sister.

While echoing the start of its first season, “Grey's Anatomy” will not be returning to where it began after covering a single calendar year in three television seasons. Instead, the show's third-season finale wrapped up existing stories — but in mostly unsatisfying, occasionally depressing, and sometimes illogical ways that will leave the show decidedly changed.

Its major developments all involved the characters rejecting one another, and will alter their lives, giving the interns — and viewers — little to look forward to for their next year.

The first string of rejections came as the result of an attempt to answer one major question: Which of the attending physicians would Chief of Surgery Richard Webber appoint to take his place?

First to be removed from consideration was Mark Sloan, who insisted he really wanted the job despite acting like an all-around jackass most of the time.

Next up was Addison, who had to be rejected not because that's what fit with her character, but so she could move to Los Angeles and star in ABC's new series "Private Practice." Richard conveniently set up her spin-off by telling her, "If you need a job to get your life, you either need a new job, or a new life."

Addison's new life airs Wednesdays at 9 this fall on ABC.

Burke was also turned down because, as Webber told him, "You let me down this year, Preston. ... I want to give you the job — I want to, but I can't." That left Derek, who was actually offered the job that brought him to Seattle in the first place. But he rejected himself. While that may show growth on his part, he didn't really offer an explanation as to why he suddenly no longer desired the job he's been desperately wanting.

Derek's decision also leaves Richard in an awkward position.

Having reconciled with his wife after she nearly died miscarrying their baby, he now is stuck with the job that essentially destroyed their marriage. "You take care of other people's families, and you sacrifice your own," he said at one point.

Seattle Grace without Richard Webber would not be the same, but he was quitting because he devoted too much of his life to work.

Now, he either needs to reject his wife and life again, or leave the hospital, which seems like an even unlikelier option.

In other rejection-related developments, some of them incomprehensible or out-of-character, Bailey lost the chief resident position to Callie, perhaps because Webber wanted to save Bailey, but still making little sense.

Alex rebuffed Ava, whose husband's appearance prompted her to realize she was ready for a new beginning. Alex had apparently moved on — or calloused himself as a result of her earlier rejection — as just a day or so before, he'd clearly fallen for her.

George failed his intern exam, maybe because he spent too much time hooking up with and pining for his roommates this year, at least when they weren't pining for him. Meanwhile, his wife, Callie, suddenly and bizarrely declared to George that she was hormonal and wanted to have a baby.

Because smart people know that babies fix bad marriages, George immediately did his part to help conceive a child. That left Callie to coldly but finally dismiss Izzie with 12 words: “I was named chief resident; plus, we decided to have a baby.” That will probably have little effect on Izzie, who earlier refused to give up and told George, “I'm in love with you, George, and I hope you're in love with me, too.”

He didn't acknowledge any reciprocal feelings, having apparently been convinced by one of “Grey's Anatomy”'s convenient, always amusing, and flawlessly constructed metaphors for a character's personal life masquerading as a medical problem.

A mountain climber with an axe in his skull “panicked,” George said, and tried to climb down despite being attached to his fellow climbers. “You have every right to turn back if you're scared,” George declared. Without thinking, Derek replied “No, you don't. You choose to climb a mountain, you can't change your mind in the middle of a climb.”

Preston Burke, however, did exactly that. In fact, he changed his mind in the middle of his wedding. After months of pressing Cristina to get married, he finally realized that he was asking her to do something she didn't want to do; while she insisted otherwise, the wedding was off. “I know you don't want to come (down the aisle) but you'll come anyway because you love me. And if I loved you ... if I did, I wouldn't be up there waiting for you. I would be letting you go,” he said, and then disappeared.

Calling off the wedding might have made sense, but leaving her entirely? Minutes earlier he was practicing his truly touching vows, leaving every person in the operating room in tears.

Apparently, he had time after that procedure to surgically remove his feelings for Cristina and deposit them in a biohazard waste container.

His departure and rejection of Cristina led her to have an ambiguous breakdown in front of Meredith. “He's gone,” Cristina said, fighting to get out of her wedding dress. “I'm free. Dammit.”

Derek, meanwhile, didn't want to be free of Meredith, but she seemed willing to reject him by not explicitly rejecting him. He told her, "I do love you, don't you see? ... You're the love of my life. I can't leave you. But you're constantly leaving me." He begged her, "If you're not in this, please, just end it. ... Put me out of my misery." Meredith responded in the moment by simply avoiding the topic, saying only that she had to go to the wedding.

Once there, after Burke changed his mind and called off the wedding, Meredith was left to deliver the news to the assembled guests. "It's over. You can all go home," she said. At once she was talking to the assembled guests and to Derek. "It's over. So over," she said.

So, she also seemed to be saying, is the "Grey's Anatomy" that we've known.
