Who knows why TV networks do what they do. I was confused when ABC wasted one of its few remaining episodes of Grey's Anatomy on Thanksgiving Day, then made us wait two weeks for the conclusion to those stories; I'm even more baffled that they put off the show's final remaining episode until tonight. I thought I'd be so excited, but I'm actually having a tough time being enthusiastic knowing that whatever happens tonight is all we'll get till the strike ends.
That said, though, tonight's episode looks like a doozy. I've said before that Grey's is only as good as it lets Bailey be, and this episode is a showcase for her (and for newly minted People's Choice winner Chandra Wilson). Bailey takes over for Meredith as narrator tonight, and her story — a personal tragedy that's partially revealed in the promo below — serves as the episode's centerpiece. Meanwhile, George's mother shows up at Seattle Grace, and Derek has to deal with the fallout from his kiss with Rose. It sounds like a packed hour, and I hope it's satisfying enough to tide me over for a while. To watch that preview I mentioned, plus another emotional scene from the episode, just read more.
