If you have not yet seen “Someone Saved My Life,” the Season 17 finale of “Grey’s Anatomy,” you should not continue reading.
After surviving COVID-19, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was able to return to work during the 17th season of the ABC programme Meredith Grey.
However, she did not receive a congratulatory clap out when she was discharged from the hospital after surviving the illness, unlike every other patient on the show who did. Though she had to wait months after returning to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to complete her first surgery since being diagnosed with COVID, she was undoubtedly deserving of recognition for her performance.
After explaining that the most important lesson she learned from having COVID-19 was, “It taught me that I’m still alive,” the Season 17 finale of the ABC medical drama began with Meredith saying, “It taught me that I’m still alive.” Taking a walk on a real beach, Meredith finds peace as she scatters petals on the ground around her.
This is an allusion to her COVID-induced slumber, which she experienced during her time in the hospital. They became even more meaningful after watching the episode travel back in time to August 2020, during which Meredith was frustrated by having to perform surgery, Maggie (Kelly McCreary) and Winston (Anthony Hill) were forced to postpone their wedding, and Meredith was frustrated by having to perform surgery again.
A battle was raging between Jo (Camilla Luddington) and the government over whether or not to adopt Luna, and the future of Link (Chris Carmack) and Amelia (Caterina Scorsonerelationship )’s was in doubt.
The conclusion contained joyful moments that showed that the worst of the epidemic had passed, at least for the time being at Grey Sloan. Following over a year of social separation and civilian mask-wearing, the hour-long episode implied that the next season will take place after the pandemic has been resolved.
Teddy (Kim Raver) was suffering from a slight attack of the flu when Owen (Kevin McKidd, who directed the episode) proposed to her on Christmas Day, surrounded by relatives and a fake snowfall. (She responded affirmatively.)
Then there were the immunizations. The hospital was ecstatic that all of the personnel had received their first doses of COVID as Meredith campaigned for a lung transplant for a patient who was suffering from severe, nearly fatal COVID side effects.
A montage of happy doctors (some of whom were visibly moved) served as a poignant reminder that, not so long ago, the prospect of a vaccine-free world seemed practically unattainable. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) swooned as she said, “I love needles.”
Amelia, on the other hand, found it difficult to persevere through the gloom.
“It’s been a year, and I’m filled with so much worry,” she shared with her addiction treatment group. “My lover — the father of my child — is not a member of our family. “I am so grateful that he does not have to go through life in that manner, but there is a part of me that wishes he had received the treatment.”
Especially after agreeing to assist Jo in adopting Luna by acting as a temporary foster parent, Amelia was certain Link would want additional children. When Link proposed to Amelia on the beach at Winston and Maggie’s wedding (a romantic big gesture that included the choice to choose one of four rings) she said no out of concern for her own safety. He took refuge in Jo’s new home, where he crashed.
However, the wedding of Maggie and Winston, as well as Jo’s successful adoption of Luna, served as a counterpoint to Link’s sadness. The sale of her hospital shares, which were purchased by Tom Koracick (Greg Germann), who had lately relocated to Boston, enabled her to pay for the adoption and legal bills. Miranda expressed her dissatisfaction with the hospital’s new co-owner in a brief video conference with Tom, but she was happy for Jo in the end as a result of the situation. She also received support from Jesse Williams’ character Jackson Avery, who has given Jo his old Seattle apartment and appeared in a digital cameo to welcome her to the neighbourhood.
But, would we be attending an event with a large number of doctors if at least one of them didn’t get summoned into the emergency room? After Maggie and Winston exchanged their vows, Teddy and Meredith went to Grey Sloan when a donor match for their patient’s lung transplant was finally found. At long last, Meredith completed her first-ever COVID surgery, which provided the ideal opportunity for a well-deserved celebration.
Meg Marinis, executive producer of the episode and co-writer with Andy Reaser, said in a statement to Variety, “So many individuals had fought with COVID, and she didn’t want to feel any different than anyone else.”
“Instead, we chose to applaud Meredith out of the operating room, which seemed like the greatest success in her season-long trek to this point.” My heart melts when I see Meredith in the OR Corridor, surrounded by her loved ones, laughing and smiling while wearing her scrub cap. “It gives me hope after having such a difficult year.”
