|Pilot:Â Happy Thanksgiving! Izzie has high hopes for a big family-style dinner. McDreamy and Addison schedule holiday sex. Georgeâ€™s dad takes a bullet in the behind. A man wakes up after 16 years in a coma. Meredith says goodbye to Derek for good. Maybe. Izzieâ€™s big Thanksgiving dinner isnâ€™t turning out exactly as she hoped. Meredith volunteered to work today. Georgeâ€™s family drags him out on a turkey hunting trip. Cristina brings Burke. Ugh, holiday with the boss! Oh no, somethingâ€™s burning. Addison suggests to McDreamy that they have sex tonight. Itâ€™ll be the first time since their split. McDreamy says theyâ€™ve never had to schedule sex. But he agrees to meet her for lunch. Heâ€™s going to Seattle Grace to check on patients. Letâ€™s see if heâ€™ll be back in time for lunch or sex. McDreamy, Bailey and Chief Webber are at Seattle Grace avoiding the holiday. These surgeons just canâ€™t stay away. Meredith comes in because she doesnâ€™t have much to be thankful for. Bailey smiles widely and says â€œSurgeries. Lots and lots of surgeries!â€ Mer is talking to her coma patient when his eyes suddenly open. Heâ€™s been in a vegetative state for 16 years. Now she has to consult McDreamyâ€”awkward. She asks him, â€œMe and you in this weird limbo. Itâ€™s gonna go on forever, right?â€ Oh, we hope not. Izzie is mortified that Cristina brought Burke. Cristina explains, â€œHeâ€™s like something sticky that wonâ€™t blow off.â€ Cristina is so relieved when Joe arrives. Heâ€™s a bartender. He must have booze. He brought pie. What is she supposed to do with that? Sheâ€™s going out for some liquor. You know sheâ€™s going to Seattle Grace. Georgeâ€™s brothers tease him about not being an Oâ€™Malley man. They arenâ€™t leaving â€˜til George kills his first turkey. He did it. His bros are so excited one of them accidentally shoots Dad in the ass. This will definitely be a memorable holiday. Mer meets Vegetable Guyâ€™s wife. Uh ohâ€”this isnâ€™t going to be a cheerful family reunion. Sheâ€™s pregnant and remarried. Not a cheerful family reunion at all.
