'The whole story will be told': a sneak peek of this week's 'Grey's Anatomy' episode
Last week we were dying to find out what happened in the aftermath of the “Grey’s Anatomy” plane crash, but after seeing a trailer for the second episode of the season, we’re not sure we can handle it.
When the trailer begins, we see a shot of an unresponsive Meredith followed by one of Lexie (RIP) and scenes of the Seattle Grace doctors being rescued from the horrific plane crash that occurred on the Season 8 finale.
“The whole story will be told,” the trailer promises…
We were expecting to find all this out in the first episode and were surprised to have skipped ahead 30 days post-crash where things were back to normal – well almost.
Seeing McSteamy lying unconscious in a hospital bed was a jarring reminder of the tragedy.
After the crash, Meredith and Cristina had to perform field surgery to drain fluid off his heart and his fate was left up in the air. But at the end of the Season 9 premiere, Dr. Webber pulled the plug and Sloan died.
This week on an episode titled “Remember the Time,” we’ll find out what happened from the point he and the other doctors were rescued until they sat vigil beside his hospital bed.
We will also find out how Arizona lost her leg.
“Promise me you won’t let them take my leg,” she begs Callie in the trailer.
“I promise,” says Callie.
And yet we found out at the end of last week’s episode her leg has been amputated and that a new pediatric surgeon was taking her place. With Callie being the orthopedic surgeon, we’re wondering if she performed the surgery on her partner and how they will recover as a couple.
Though Cristina ends up bundled up at a new hospital in Minnesota in the premiere episode, we see in the trailer that the road to recovery wasn’t easy for her either. She refuses to speak to Meredith and ends up throwing a vase of flowers at the hospital room’s window. We can’t imagine how she and Owen, who were already on the rocks, will be able to weather not only the distance (especially since flying is off the table) but the emotional trauma.
In the first episode we also saw that Derek went back to surgery but had to cancel mid-procedure because his hand was numb (Burke flashback anyone?). As you might remember, his arm was injured in the crash and in the Season 8 finale it had to be sutured back together with a safety pin – not the best thing for a surgeon.
We expect this debilitating problem to continue for him as the season goes on.
While the doctors were huddled around the campfire in the season finale, their primary concern was survival but after watching this preview for the second episode, we’re not sure survival is going to be enough.
