Properly, that was definitely a change of tempo.
Gray’s Anatomy tends to be recognized for its season finales stuffed with dire conditions and devastating conclusions, however this yr, the ABC collection opted for a lighter, extra heartwarming strategy. And regardless that the episode did act as Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw’s swan songs as Drs. April Kepner and Arizona Robbins, respectively, the present noticed match to offer them the pleased endings they deserved. Actually, heading into this fall’s record-breaking 15th season, everybody’s in a reasonably excellent spot.
Properly, nearly everybody. Owen’s received a giant shock coming his approach, however we’ll get to that in a minute.
Earlier than that, let’s discuss these exits. As anticipated, Arizona was departing for NYC instantly after Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo’s (Camilla Luddington) wedding ceremony to make life simpler for daughter Sofia, who’d grown past uninterested in dwelling a bi-coastal life because of the custody settlement with Callie, and to start her new partnership with Geena Davis‘ Dr. Herman. However what wasn’t anticipated was that she and Callie have been in a severely good place (and each single), with every new textual content from her ex-wife bringing an even bigger smile to Arizona’s face. We might not have gotten an on-screen reunion between Capshaw and former star Sara Ramirez, however simply realizing that Callie and Arizona received their pleased ending in spite of everything is majorly satisfying.
As for April, she was utterly high quality after final week’s near-death expertise. Actually, we discovered that she’d give up her job at Gray Sloan Memorial a few month in the past and was dedicating herself to offering medical providers to Seattle’s homeless communities. And after Alex and Jo’s initially deliberate wedding ceremony become a catastrophe—don’t be concerned, they nonetheless received married in spite of everything, on the ferry again to town with Meredith appearing as officiant—Matthew determined he could not wait any longer, proposing to her and finally exchanging vows all in the identical afternoon. We weren’t kidding once we stated the endings have been pleased ones!
The opposite large developments? Bailey (Chandra Wilson) determined she needs to take a sabbatical from her place as Chief of Surgical procedure, simply as Teddy (Kim Raver) confirmed up, on the lookout for a job. Welcome your new interim chief, everybody! That should not be awkward in any respect. What can be awkward, although, is the bun in her oven. Is it the results of her dalliance with Owen (Kevin McKidd)? What do you suppose. Extra importantly, what’s going to Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) suppose? And Alex and Jo is likely to be transferring away, now that Jo’s been granted a fellowship at Mass. Gen. in Boston. However one thing tells us they will be again.
So, there you’ve gotten it. A complete bunch of pleased endings. Who would’ve thought?
Gray’s Anatomy returns for season 15 this fall on ABC.
