"This" is gathering in Formerly Really Old, Now Really Dead Guy's room. George runs in last, and Alex sneers at him. The Fab Five gather around the bed; it appears Izzie has gathered them for a memorial. She implores each of them to say something nice -- as he wasn't conscious for 99.9% of their relationship, these things include not complaining, taking his meds, living through twelve surgeries, and, courtesy of Alex, hardly ever farting. Once they've gone around the circle, Izzie says her own piece. She announces that Charlie was a mean, stubborn bastard. That might have been because his doctor was a bitch, I don't know. But she adds, "He knew what he wanted and proved if you want something badly and are determined and patient enough, eventually it will happen." So, she's using a memorial to a dead guy to send a message to George, since he stopped her from talking to him about it normally. I'd say this might even be more egregious than using an interrupted wedding to send a message to the best man. But because she's Izzie, this all gives her hope, so she thanks Charlie and says goodbye, and they all stare at bed.
We must be coming to a close, because here is Omnipresent Meredith Voice-Over. "The truth...is painful." George is in with Connie as she wakes up, and tells her that her surgery was successful. But with just her eyes, she asks after her friends, and George has to admit he hasn't seen them. At that very moment, however, Joanne and Eileen bust in with flowers and balloons, nervously asking if she's okay. Once they learn she is and that she'll talk again, they decide it's time to deliver a little bit of truth on their own -- namely, that her first husband was handsy, and her second husband was ugly. Oh, girls, if he's her ex-husband, my guess is she already knew that.
VO: "Deep down, nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits close to home." The queen of Not Wanting To Hear It, Meredith, approaches an angry Lexie. She explains that she's got her mom's death note, which is an account of everything that happened that day, and which Meredith wrote. She explains that she'd like to go over it with Lexie if it's okay, and Lexie looks confused, but nods. She starts by gently telling her about how every single thing that happened only had a 1% chance of happening and then, before she goes on, adds, "For what it's worth, I was very fond of your mother. She was...I was very fond of her." Lexie looks at her, and as Mere begins to explain again, Lexie tears up. It's a really nice moment both between the sisters and in memory of Bonnie, about whose death I'm definitely still mad. This is what made you, Grey's, moments like these! More of this, less of George and Izzie, please. Especially Izzie.
