Notes and TriviaEdit
- The first season was supposed to be 13 episodes, but ABC wanted the Grey's finale to air along with the Desperate Housewives finale. Rather than condensing or throwing out plot lines, the first season ended with the ninth episode the remaining four episode were saved the for the second season. Enough is Enough was created as the first new episode of the season, but aired as the second episode of the season. Bring the Pain, which aired as the series' 14th episode, has been cited in series creator Shonda Rhimes' blog as having been originally intended as the first season finale.
- The series' opening credit sequence was also dropped by the last half of the second season, replaced by a title card displayed at the end of the first act and credits displayed over the opening of the second act of each episode.
- Most of the episode voice overs are narrated by Meredith Grey, but there are three exceptions:
- Chandra Wilson was pregnant with her son during part of the season, like her character.
- All main characters of the season appear in every episode, except for Miranda Bailey, who's absent for one episode.
