“Bright and shiny” Meredith Grey has arrived — and a week ahead of schedule!

The first 11 minutes of next Thursday’s much-hyped alternate reality episode of Grey’s Anatomy (ABC 9/8c) has hit the Interwebs, and it’s pretty freakin’ bananas.

    I dont like it It seems forced and not natural it just doesnt seem right I love the realtionships that are on the show now And to see Bailey so shy and quite is laughable. I only hope George and Izzy are in this episode that would make it bareable

    Good chance to have some fun with the characters.

    I have never really been a huge fan of Meredith or Alex in the past but I found them hilarious together, here.

    Nice comment about ‘some guy called Teddy’ helping Ownen Very clever.

    Lets hope Addison is not painted as the cheater or bad guy in the relationship yet again.

    I adore Kate Walsh, she is brilliant in everything she does.

    Interesting to see the tension between Callie and Arizona, too.

    Whether you like the way things are in the What if timeline or not, it should be fun to watch.

    Something that just occurred to me. Arizona wouldn’t be at Seattle Grace in this version of reality. She’d still be in Africa, because she wouldn’t have come back for Callie.

    • Alicia L. says:

      She may not have been offered it because she was working for Ellis and Ellis refused to let AZ leave because she is such an excellent surgeon and besides the hospital in the AU episode is suppose to be the best hospital in the country!

    I HATE IT SOO MUCH. I like the original way so much better. I couldnt even have myself watch this it was too painful. It was nice to see Meredith with parents..but i hate her all bubbly and ick. so not her. hahah i miss Meredith and christina, they’re perfect and to see meredith without mcdreamy(sheperd) is just HORRIBLE. The whole point of hte show was because meredith was a depressing child with the depressing friend and it was just perfect. I hate this way..and should not ever be continued.
