Grey's Anatomy - TV Guide's List Of 25 Must Watch Episodes

Recently TVGuide.com published a list of 25 Grey's Anatomy episodes that fans must watch before Season 10 premieres in September. I have included the first four here and you can visit the link below to read the rest.

This fall, Grey's Anatomy kicks off its 10th season — which will include its momentous 200th episode — and TVGuide.com has compiled the best episodes that fans and new viewers alikemust watch (or re-watch!) before diving back in.

Through the death (George! Lexie!), heartbreak (Denny! Izzie!) and weddings (yay for post-its!), executive producer Shonda Rhimes, her team of writers and the talented cast and crew have taken all of us on an amazing journey. Check out a countdown of our top 25 episodes below:

 25. "Song Beneath the Song" — Season 7, Episode 18

What happened: 
After Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) get into a major car crash, a semi-comatose Callie envisions herself and her colleagues singing as they try to treat her extensive injuries. After the cast performs songs — no jazz hands, thankfully! — made famous by the series, like "Chasing Cars" and "Breathe (2AM)," Callie wakes up and proposes to Arizona. 

Why it was a game-changer: 
The musical episode may not have been everyone's favorite, but Rhimes, decided to take a risk similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one of her favorite series, and try something new. Not only that, but it lead to Callie and Arizona's wedding, which — while not the first lesbian nuptials on broadcast television — was certainly a momentous occasion. 

24. "The Other Side of This Life Parts 1 and 2" — Season 3, Episode 22 and 23

What happened: 
The two-hour episode serves as a backdoor pilot for Private Practice, which sees Addison (Kate Walsh) venture to Los Angeles to reunite with old friends Naomi (played byMerrin Dungey, later replaced by Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs) in hopes of enlisting their help to get pregnant. It also marksthe episode where Thatcher Grey's (Jeff Perry) wife Susan (Mare Winningham) dies essentially from hiccups.

Why it was a game-changer: It was the beginning of the end for Addison Montgomery at Seattle Grace, and the start of a series that spanned six seasons, putting Rhimes into a rare group of showrunners with multiple shows on the air and providing opportunities for crossovers.

23. "If/Then" — Season 8, Episode 13

What happened: 
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) dreams of a world in which her mother Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) never got Alzheimer's and went on to become the Chief of Seattle Grace. In this alternate reality, Meredith is bright and shiny and dating Alex (Justin Chambers), who is cheating on her with April (Sarah Drew). Meredith and Cristina (Sandra Oh) are enemies, and Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Callie are unhappily married. Meanwhile, Addison and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are still together, while Lexie (Chyler Leigh) has become a drug addict. 

Why it was a game-changer: 
Even though most of our favorite couples were separated in the alt-reality, by the end of the hour, there was some spark between each of them that insinuated they were all truly meant to be even in this reality, like when Meredith and Derek met up at Joe's bar at the end. 

22. "Moment of Truth" — Season 8, Episode 21

What happened: 
Our favorite residents, whose careers we've mostly been following since the beginning of the series, head to San Francisco to take the oral boards. But April scores better in life than on her test — which she ultimately fails — after she loses her virginity to best friend Jackson (Jesse Williams) while on the trip. Why it was a game-changer: "Virgin Mary" April Kepner finally lost her virginity, which kicked off a fun new relationship for Grey's fans to root for. Sorry, Intern Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton)!
