Grey's Anatomy: This Season's Finale May Be 1 of the Worst Yet | Popsugar
By Ryan Roschke

We’ve still got a ways to go until the 13th season of Grey’s Anatomy comes to a close. Even so, time is ticking, and any fan of Grey’s knows the finale episodes are always a doozy. We’ve got to prepare ourselves. This week, the Grey’s cast participated in a panel for this year’s Paleyfest, and we were lucky enough to snag them for red carpet interviews. Naturally, we had to ask about the danger that lies ahead. Here’s how the cast teased the upcoming season 13 finale.

It Will Be “Explosive”
Jessica Capshaw, who plays Dr. Arizona Robbins on the show, had quite an interesting word to tease the final season. “There’s something that’s going to happen that’s quite explosive. But I can’t tell you who it’s about.” The key word is of course “explosive,” but what does it mean?! Does she mean literal explosions near or inside the hospital?! Or will we see some kind of crazy emotional altercation take place?

The Episode Is One For the History Books
There’s more evidence to support an actual explosion, or at least some other kind of huge disaster. “Oh my gosh,” Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) exclaimed. “I think this will be a bigger ending finale than some of our previous ones. I think we gotta go big and loud and strong. We haven’t filmed the last episode yet, but I have a feeling it’s going to be loud.” Big and loud and strong?! Something seriously devastating is probably going down.

Even the Cast Was Shocked’
If there was any lingering doubt that things are going off the rails, allow Caterina Scorsone (Amelia Shepherd) to get rid of it. Scorsone teased that the episode would leave fans with “dropped jaws. Like we had at the table read. There was a lot of ‘WHAT?!’ Throwing scripts … there were a lot of expletives. So, yeah, the last couple episodes are shocking. Even for Shondaland.” If you ask us, it’s the “even for Shondaland” part that really gives us palpitations. Because fans of Grey’s, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder know showrunner Shonda Rhimes means business.

There Will Be Some “Hot” Romance
But hey, it seems like the finale won’t be all bad. Even if the hospital blows up (knock on wood), looks like we’re getting another kind of heat as well. Yep, we’re talking romance. Debbie Allen, who plays Catherine Avery, dropped a small hint during the actual panel: “The end of this season is hot,” she said. That could go in any sort of direction, considering all the “will they/won’t they” couples we have right now. We could see a hookup between April and Jackson, Amelia and Owen, and even possibly Alex and Jo!

For Christmas the year after Callie moves back to Seattle, and they get back together and become a family again, Arizona gets Sofia specially made, child-sized scrubs in exactly the same navy blue as the attendings at Grey Sloan Memorial, for no other reason than she thinks it’ll be cute and she knows their daughter loves playing doctor. Callie swipes an authentic scrub cap from the intern’s locker room to complete the outfit, and from that day forward whenever Sofia has to come to work with one of them she insists on wearing her scrubs cause “I’m gonna be a surgeon too!”.

Naturally everyone at the hospital thinks it’s freaking adorable, especially because she also gets her first pair of heelies that Christmas and becomes a miniature version of Arizona speeding along the hallways.

(Callie swears her hair is turning more grey by the minute every time she sees her in those damn sneakers, but she can’t help but love it all the same, because every day she reminds her more and more of Arizona.)

Sofia tries to convince her moms to let her watch real surgery after school, but that’s where they both draw the line – they know she’s smart, but they don’t want to traumatize their eight-year-old with actual open bodies. They get her anatomy colouring books instead, but when they’re not looking, she convinces her Uncle Alex to sneak her into the gallery anyway.(And she thinks it’s the COOLEST THING EVER. It 100% cements her dream to become a doctor just like both her moms.)

When she graduates med school years later, Callie digs this photo off her hard drive and has it printed (they have a framed version in their bedroom already), and they slip it into the card they leave at her apartment the morning before they depart Baltimore to go home. Sofia opens it later that day, after she drops her moms off at the airport, and when she turns over the photo she sees a message in familiar handwriting that makes her grin from ear to ear.

“Guess you won’t have to sneak into the gallery now (don’t think we didn’t know.) Love, moms.”


Imagine This

Imagine if Mark and Lexie hadn’t died.
Just humor me.
Like, Derek wouldn’t have accepted the job in DC, because Mark would have told him how big of an idiot he was being for thinking about taking it, because that would be basically throwing away the relationship with Mer, because you know how mad she was. And he would’ve told him that he couldn’t leave his kids for that long. Just no. And with that, Derek wouldn’t have been in that accident.
And that whole thing with Arizona and Callie wouldn’t have happened like it did, because Mark would have spoke with reason.
And he would’ve been able to see Sofia grow up.
And if Lexie had lived, Cristina wouldn’t have had PTSD about hearing the wolves eating Lexie.
And Lexie and Mer could’ve been happy sisters.
And Mark and Lexie could’ve been happy together.
Just imagine.
