Meanwhile, in Seattle, George considers transfering to another hospital rather than dealing with his feelings for Izzie, Burke begins to have reservations about marrying Cristina, Alex continues to care for Ava after her surgery and an unexpected turn of events with a patient devestates Meredith.



"At some point, maybe we accept that the dream has become a nightmare. We tell ourselves the reality is better. We convince ourselfs that it's better that we never dream at all. But the strongest of us, the most determined of us, hold on to the dream or we find ourselves faced with a fresh dream we never considered. We awake to find ourselves, against all odds, feeling hopeful. And if we're lucky we realize, in the face of everything, in the face of life, the true dream is being able to dream at all."
