The Best Episode of Grey's in a long time!
2 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a flawless episode, with an emotionally charged and Emmy worthy performance by Ellen Pompeo and also by Kate Burton. This show has been so consistent with it's brilliant writing, it does let down the fans one bit. This episode contains some of the best scenes I have seen on Television, this is really a good Emmy submission. Grey's has by far the Best Ensemble on Television (the reason why the cast won a Screen Actor's Guild Award).It was one of the best episodes of Grey's I have seen to date, and it's going to be hard to top this one, (even know they will).

Grade: A
