“You Don’t Want To Die Here”
It was all about the glitz and glamour last night on Grey’s 200th episode, but it wouldn’t be Grey’s without some blood! Many revelations happened last night, which made it a special episode for our doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial. First, lets toast to 200 episodes of Grey’s. Who would have thought our favorite doctors would have made it this far? So much has happened over the years, and last nights episode brought me all the way back to the season two finale, Prom. Even Derrick reminisced about that infamous night. But this night will be a night to remember!
The episode starts off with a fundraiser party put together by the board to raise money for the hospital. The party planner went a little over board, and Jackson isn’t pleased. He wanted a low key party, where everyone could talk about donations. Instead he got clowns, trapeze artist, and arcabats. I guess you gotta go big or go home!
While all the board members try to mingle for donations, Mer & Der use this opportunity to turn it into a compitation. They haven’t had time for work, since they are parents to a newborn, so they are putting all that tension elsewhere. Christina and Owen are still trying to talk to other people, and use the party as an excuse. Christina is only flirting for donations, while Owen is getting his feet wet. Guess he’s really trying to get over her.
Meanwhile Callie is still not talking to Arizona, and uses the “my wife is dead” card to raise money for the hospital. Arizona can’t even be in the same room as Callie and spends the rest of the night drunk in a closet with April. It was kinda cute seeing them together, they actually make great friends!
While all the doctors are at the gala, the interns are in charge of the E.R. This finally gave them the chance to step up, but when a group of drug addicts come into the hospital, they must focus all their attention on them. Alex catches a vibe that one of the guys could be his father, and at the end we find out he is. He took a paternity test, and now has to deal with his daddy issue. He hasn’t seen his dad in 20 years, there is about to be some DRAMA!
A freak accident at the party has all the doctors heading back to the hospital, showing off their skills to the donors. Which works in there favor because they donate a tremendous amount of funds to the hospital. Even though things looked down, everything eventually worked its self out. Richard was still refusing treatment and wanted to die, but has a change of heart at the end of the episode, thankfully. Jackson and Stephanie nearly broke up (which I was so happy about) but after a heart to heart they are still together. And in the end, Meredith found that her true belonging was the hospital. The show is called Grey’s Anatomy, and she is Meredith Grey!
Owen and Christina are still figuring it out, Alex has a new set of issue to deal with, Callie and Arizona could be over for good, and Webber is still fighting for his life. So much drama, yet we wouldn’t have it any way. Being a fan since the first season, I still can’t believe how much has changed! Yet I still tune in every week to see what my TV family is up to. Congrats to Grey’s and Shonda Rhimes on 200 episodes!

Grey’s Anatomy Review – Season Finale! (16×21)
It may not have been a hospital shooting, a major fire, or an explosion, but it was certainly a Grey’s Anatomy season finale. A bittersweet one at that! It’s finally that time of year when we are left dangling on a very high cliffhanger with almost no end in sight.
The past episodes have left Richard’s health in danger, but the doctors finally figured out the cause of his mysterious symptoms.
Initially, everyone thought it was Alzheimer’s, but DeLuca caught it just in time. In fact, Richard was suffering from Cobolt poisoning as a result of an old hip replacement.
Meanwhile, Teddy and Owen’s wedding was scheduled for the end of the night but was halted indefinitely after Teddy left Owen an unfortunate voicemail.
In an installment that was certainly the lamest finale, it still left us with some major questions.
The entire hour was focused on Richard’s surgery and recovery from his new hip replacement after his old one failed him and essentially rotted in his body. I’m not sure how they expected us to focus on any of the other cases when all I wanted to do was focus on Richard’s status.
Oh, and also amidst the chaos, Link and Amelia welcomed their new baby boy into the world. What a day to be born little man!
Thankfully the episode ended on some happy notes for all patients involved. The little girl finally got her smile, the guy got the bat dislodged from his chest, and Richard seemed to make an easy recovery from his surgery.
However, there was certainly some strain left behind in a couple of relationships, to say the least. After Richard woke from his surgery Katherine was by his side ready to sleep next to him, but despite his previous delusions he remembered their old fights and didn’t seem to want anything to do with her.
I was hoping their relationship would be mended by this stressful time, but it was far from it. It’s understandable that Richard wouldn’t want anything to do with Katherine, but also she did run to his side during his most vulnerable time. Katherine was completely at fault for their latest blowup, but Richard knew Katherine was a hard woman. I hope they’re able to forgive each other because, at this point in life, they both deserve to have a companion by their side.
Well, Teddy majorly f-ed up. Koracick’s a good guy and deserves so much better. However, I had hoped that Teddy could have been exactly what he deserved.
I’m not sure why she kept messing around with him. She knew she didn’t want him, so how could she sleep with him and then proceed to tell him that was just her saying goodbye?
Owen’s not a saint either, so I’m not sure what’s going to transpire after this major incident, but I have a feeling things will eventually continue toward marriage. I’m putting my prediction in writing! Owen and Teddy will have a large rough patch, but will eventually take each other’s hands in marriage, even if it’s by the end of Season 17!
I’m not sure what will happen for Koracick because Teddy seemed like the woman for him, especially after he’s gone through so much life trauma. I hope the writers wrote him a happy ending with a lovely lady. Though, I will continue to secretly cross my fingers for a Teddy and Koracick miracle!
Anybody else with me??
On a small side note that only feels right because Meredith is the main character of the show, Meredith and DeLuca seem to be doing well? They’re not officially back together, but their trajectory seemed to be heading in that direction. Meredith was last seen taking DeLuca home, which I can only assume was back to her place. He was sobbing, and I really question if he’s going through a mania of sorts because he did lash out a few times. I’m not sure if he could attribute that to the fact that nobody would believe him and he had to take extra measures to ensure he was heard? However, I am curious if this will finally be addressed in the next season.
Let me know your thoughts on the season finale down below!
I guess this is ta-ta for now, until at least mid-September.
Additional Side Notes:
- I had the same exact questions Amelia shouted! Why do we have babies? How does humanity exist?
- That look shared between Jo and Hayes made me question if they’re going to become something! I guess I had never thought of Hayes pairing up with anyone except for Meredith, but things have been set up nicely so that Meredith will end up with DeLuca and Hayes isn’t left alone!
- Maybe I’m not observant enough, but it seemed like Amelia didn’t really show a baby bump until this last episode before she went into labor!
- I will always enjoy the subtle humor thrown into the drama and I’ve noticed a common trend, Bailey. Amelia demanding Bailey stay after she stole her baby daddy from taking the grunt of her squeezes was too precious. Bailey’s been there for many births on the show, so it only seemed right she be there for Amelia.
Grey’s Anatomy Review – What’s Wrong with Richard? (16×20)
Richard’s mysterious ailment remained the greatest puzzle of the hour, alongside a more humanizing storyline for Koracick.
Apparently, dementia and Alzheimer’s are ruled out for Richard, but what else could it be? The doctors having a ticking timeline and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be an easy case to solve.
All the surgeons except for neuro were put on Richard duty and had to do some hard thinking. It has been a while since they had to sit and map out an entire diagnosis.
And of course, the patriarch of the show was not going to make it easy.
The scariest moment was when Meredith found Richard about to cut into himself. Initially, the thought of him cutting into another unsuspecting patient was terrifying, but then when it revealed the reality of the situation my blood pressure soared.
Meredith came in like a superhero and saved the day, but I honestly didn’t know which way it was going to go. They better find a cure fast, or Catherine’s going to kill them all, well before Richard goes.

If you were on the fence between Team Koracick or Team Owen you might be no longer! I know this episode only strengthened by loyalty to Koracick.
Despite his rudeness and overall impertinence toward life in general, Koracick has suffered a loss very few understand. The loss of his son David devastated his entire life and gave him a grim outlook on the future. I’m not making excuses for his behavior, but the death of a child can certainly harden someone.
Since this event that rocked his world, Teddy seems to be the only thing that gives him true happiness, besides his large surgeon ego. When his ex-wife paid him a visit with her youngest son, Koracick was thrown for a major loop. Not only did Guthery closely resemble David, he even sounded like him. Koracick could barely handle seeing his ex-wife, let alone a look-alike of his late son.
If you didn’t feel every shade of sadness for Koracick this entire hour, do you even have a heart?!

I just want to side comment on the beauty of his relationship with his ex-wife. It didn’t seem like there was any bad blood between the two and rather than a loss of love being the reason they could no longer stay together, it seemed like the pain of losing their son was the biggest reason.
Anyway, Teddy stayed by his side the entire time and even squeezed his hand many times. I don’t understand how she didn’t recognize that Koracick was the man she needs to be with.
Teddy was the only person who could calm him down during Guthery’s surgery and every moment she was standing by she had a genuine look of concern and love. I am convinced she deep down loves him, but Owen’s just the easier choice.
Owen and Teddy have gone through their own share of problems and hurdles, but Owen’s just made to much of a mess and Koracick’s the less complicated past, I’d argue.
Of course, Koracick carries a lot of baggage, but Owen carries the same amount if not more. There’s been nothing recently on Owen, he’s honestly just clueless to Teddy’s indecisiveness.
The final scene between Teddy and Koracick didn’t look promising to a happy future between the two. Instead, Teddy grabbed Owen after her emotionally taxing day and pulled him into a supply closet to sex him up and tell him she wanted to get married sooner. I’m confused by her thinking.
After a day like that with Koracick, how could anyone not feel compelled to choose him? Maybe she was looking for a happier outlet and Owen was the easier choice? I’m not sure, but Teddy needs to be 120% sure with her choice. By the looks of next week’s preview, Koracick is still fighting for Teddy even on her wedding day. Will he win? Comment your thoughts down below!
Additional Side Notes:
- The case of the singing lady heavily reminded me of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. No way musicophelia is a real phenomenon! Because mind blown.
- “How do you fix it?” “Singing lessons.” Honestly, the best line of the night. Koracick deflects pain with humor, at least it gave us a good laugh.
- It looks like Amelia’s baby’s coming in fast! Are we ready? Maybe more than Link appeared to be!
- Schmidt and Jo need each other right now and it’s perfect they moved in together. Starting another chain of coworking roommates, very Grey’s Anatomy.
