I’m an optimist when it comes to love. I wanted to believe that these two could work through the fear and denial (not to mention the military) to be happy and gay together. While a part of me resented the fact that I was crying at Grey’s Anatomy, the other part of me knew it was because they’d done a really nice job with handling the complications of forbidden love in a world where Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is still enforced.

    That guy is cute..in the uniform. I recognize him from being on MTV’s real world/or road rules. Or the 100 spin offs they have. Its kind of cool seeing him act and he’s pretty good at it.

    Great episode!!!!
    I’m not an emotional person. But, this story got to me. I cried and cried and could not stop crying! I was so moved by the story. I couldn’t explain why it affected me so much.
    I googled the actors who played Todd Vernon and Darren Covington. I was so surprised to find out that it was Dave from Road Rules: South Pacific who played Todd. I had to look for RR photos of him since I could not believe it was him! WOW! I had a crush on him 5 years ago. I could not believe he got even HOTTER!
    Anyway, the episode was well written and well acted. The juxtaposition of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) forbidden love with the nonchalant straight sexcapades that were going on in the hospital was brilliant! Of course, the obvious statement of Meredith’s shrink at the end was nicely gift wrapped for the viewers.
    I loved how the show handled the DADT issue. It was not done in a hard-sell or political manner. Yet, I think it was very effective. I hope America sees the bitter heartache that gay couples face everyday. Things that straight people take for granted. To deny this couple’s right to kiss and spend a last tender loving moment together before surgery was simply wrong.
    How can any type of true love be seen as wrong? How can such deeply rooted homophobia prevent Darren from openly acknowledging his gay lover even when he knew that it would most likely be the last time he was going to see, touch and feel him? How can he deny himself and his lover that last good-bye? Even at the brink of death, he chose what he thought his father, the military and society expected of him. That is, deny his true self and deny his true love. It was just so sad….
    Kudos to ABC and Grey’s Anatomy! Even just a few years ago, no one could have imagined this type of episode airing on primetime TV sans controversy. We’re seeing social change. I just hope it comes much sooner and faster.

    I watched that episode last night on DVD and cried as well …
    I’m German and we had DADT until 1998 in our Forces .. it did prevent me from seeking a greater military career at the time
    I hope this episode made many people wake up and see how stupid DADT is … when is Obama finally getting serious on anti-discrimination?

    Although not in the military, my partner of over 10 years died of a brain tumor, just as the character in this episode. Watching this touching video brought back many painful memories. What is shown is exactly how it was for us and all of the actors did an excellent job. We had compassionate doctors and nurses, and unforgiving family. This episode mirrored our final days together.
