A storm rages in Seattle. Izzie is very disappointed by her date with Alex, and Meredith is upset with Derek. They both complain to George, which drives him crazy. At the hospital, Cristina is assigned a patient who uses porn as a pain killer, and Meredith takes care of an Asian girl who needs to see a Shaman before surgery. There is a power shortage, and George and Alex are stuck in an elevator with a critical patient. They need to perform heart surgery, but Alex is too freaked out, so George does it. Written by

This episode was supposed to be the original Season 1 finale but ABC ended with 1x09 "Who's Zoomin' Who?" They wanted the show to end alongside Desperate Housewives so added the planned last five episodes of Season 1 to the beginning of Season 2 instead. See more
In 'Bring the Pain', when Alex and George are in the elevator waiting for Burke to come back, you briefly see the opening to the lift dressed with the blue paper and two nurses in the background. When the camera pans back up a few moments later, the nurses are still there but the papered up opening is not. Nor is it there when Burke finally does reappear with what they need for the open-heart surgery. See more
Dr. Meredith Grey
Pain comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain. The normal pains we live with everyday. Then there's the kind of pain you can't ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else... Makes the rest of your world fade away, until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. Pain. We anesthetize , ride it out, embrace it, ignore it, and for some of us the best way to manage pain is to just push through it.
