She's got a lotta, lotta nerve coming here when she's still with him and he can't love her — it isn't fair.Breaking news, Grey’s Anatomy fans. It’s no secret that Katherine Heigl’s been angling to leave the show for a long time now, doing everything in her power to wriggle out of her long-term contract early in order to focus on her new adopted daughter and blossoming movie career. The only question has been if and when she’ll get what she wants.

EW.com’s Ausiello had the answer today.

Look, sometimes, when you’re unemployed and have a lot of time on your hands, you finally succumb to Stefanie’s evil masterplan and watch five seasons of Grey’s Anatomy in a ridiculously short amount of time. Combine that with a healthy love for comics, a chat full of crazy friends (ie. all the other PCRers) and you get…

With the rules of the game changing at Seattle Grace and a whole slew of new and, for the most part, intriguing faces coming in from Mercy West, there is much I could say about this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

I’m not, though, going to talk about Izzie’s theatrics or how incredibly weirded out I was, seeing Lexie standing in Meredith’s spot at the railing, or how very, very much I love Nora Zehetner. (Hey, guys, did I ever tell you that I love Nora Zehetner? ’cause I totally do.) Please forgive me if, for a few minutes, I go all After School Special on you, but what I want to talk about tonight has nothing to do with hospital politics. Instead it’s about how, in the words of Callie Torres, “you can’t pray away the gay.”

tr-knight-as-george-omalleyAnd goodbye to one of the hospital’s legends.

Last night’s two-part episode of Grey’s Anatomy was simultaneously one of the heaviest we’ve seen from the show practically since the death of Denny Duquette and uplifting, in a way it’s difficult to put my finger on. As the staff of Seattle Grace went through their grief — or stopped flat up against the wall of it, in the cases of some — I had the strangest sense that, in losing one of its most long-lived, well-loved characters, the show was finding its way back to its roots.

While it’s no longer the show it once was, last night that finally felt like a good thing — as if the interns, residents and attendings of Seattle Grace have begun to mature, tempered by loss. The episode had its faults, as any will (especially in a two-hour run), but for the most part, it was unexpectedly strong.

While there are surely dozens of things that go into the making of good film or television, it’s certain that just the right song can make or break a scene. The right soundtrack can not only compliment any given scene in sound, mood and words, it can bring out new sides to the characters, evoke emotions, tie scenes together and forever cement a moment in your memory. There’s no one in the business who does it better than Alexandra Patsavas.

Patsavas’ work as a music supervisor has spanned projects too numerous to be named, and even now she juggles four or five hit TV shows with movie soundtracks, but she first became truly known for her work on The O.C., where she impressed the creators so much, she was brought back for subsequent series Chuck and Gossip Girl. Her skill for matching music to mood is unparalleled, as is her talent for discovering musical gems from previously unknown artists and bringing them to the screen.

But there’s only so much you can say to convey the depth of her ability. It’s better just to let her work speak for itself, and to that end, we here at PCR have voted on our fifteen favorite musical moments from her career.

As Katherine Heigl does the press conference rag, trumpeting her pleasure at being back on set while Grey’s Anatomy begins filming season six, I can’t help feeling there’s something wrong with this picture.

Does anyone else remember when Grey’s was good? There was a time the patients were more than tools used to prop up a mirror in which Derek Shepherd could see himself and “learn a lesson” (not that he ever seems to learn anything). Izzie wasn’t psycho, Cristina’s emotions were a mere flicker of a change in Sandra Oh’s expression, Alex didn’t cry like he’s the lost Winchester brother.
