Go get the tissues, forget the popcorn's! The best episode ever!
23 June 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

The best episode ever of Grey's Anatomy. When everything seemed to be OK, we are surprised by new facts... It can't end badly!... I cried a lot in front of my TV. I wish I could have a time machine and could go to the future to know what is going to happen. I think I can't wait for season 6. I guess I'll have to see everything from the beginning! I won't say what will happen, because than you wouldn't feel the happiness of seeing a great episode and you wouldn't be surprised by the end of the episode. Stay near your tissues, you'll need them :'(. I'm sad because I'm dying to know what's going to happen. Grey's Anatomy can't end right now...
