Episode Recap: "In the Midnight Hour"

This week on Grey's Anatomy, the interns take their secret society one step too far and Izzie finds herself torn between two lovers.

Here we are, one week later, and Denny Duquette still seems just as real, if not more so, than ever before. So, just how is it possible that Izzie can hear the sound of Denny's beating heart, when that organ had been removed during his autopsy many moons ago? I don't want to believe that Izzie is really sick (physically or psychologically), so now I'm leaning toward the theory that Izzie is playing catch-up with her emotions. Maybe she never fully grieved the loss of Denny and their relationship, and now she must experience those emotions before she can truly move on and commit to Alex.

What I love most about this otherwise frustrating story line is how Alex is reacting to Izzie's bizarre behavior. While I fully expected Alex to demand Izzie let him into her bedroom after hearing those "porno movie" noises from the hallway, he surprised me by opting to accept her explanation that she was simply sick. Then later, when Izzie admitted to him that she wasn't doing well, he flat out told her that he wasn't going anywhere - so, if she wanted their relationship to end, she would have to be the one to break up with him. For a guy who said he wasn't good at talking about his "emotions and stuff," he sure seems to be a quick learner on the subject.

This week Mark also became more endearing than ever! I loved the way he looked after the young girl whose father was in the hospital after suffering an accident in his sleep. Not only did Mark give the girl a shoulder to lean on (figuratively and literally), he also carried her into her father's hospital room after she fell asleep in the waiting room. How sweet was that? Mark also shared some tender moments with Callie after she broke her nose and he continues to keep a watchful eye on "Little Grey." I can only hope that we get to see more in-depth story lines for Mark in the future.
