Grey’s Anatomy

Sea­son 13 M-Net (*101) 19:30 Drama

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

Like Mered­ith Grey (Ellen Pom­peo), fans of med­i­cal drama se­ries Grey’s Anatomy (2005-cur­rent) are made of tough stuff. We sur­vive dev­as­tat­ing loss every sea­son fi­nale, but while we’re bit­ing our nails over which beloved char­ac­ter will be ripped away tonight, it’s also worth look­ing back to see five gifts that sea­son 13 has given us…

Episode 1 (Sept 2016) showed what 1

loy­alty means to Mered­ith when she lied to her own sis­ter Mag­gie (Kelly McCreary) mo­ments af­ter promis­ing she wouldn’t, to pro­tect Alex (Justin Cham­bers) who’s been her friend since day 1.

Mid-sea­son-fi­nale episode 9’ s (Nov) 2

in-episode build­ing col­lapse echoed Alex’s life crum­bling around him bril­liantly. Alex pre­pared to go to prison for two years af­ter he took a plea deal on as­sault charges to save Jo (Camilla Lud­ding­ton) from go­ing to court.

Episode 10 (Feb 2017) pulling the 3

doc­tors out their hospi­tal com­fort zone seemed to breathe new life into the per­form­ers when Jo, Ari­zona (Jes­sica Cap­shaw) and Bai­ley (Chan­dra Wilson) treated in­mates in prison.

In episode 19 (17 April), Mag­gie 4

gave us a metaphor for why we mourn end­ing bad re­la­tion­ships when she gave her foetal pa­tient a mo­ment to ad­just af­ter re­mov­ing her heart tu­mour, be­cause “she just lost some­thing huge. Her heart needs to learn how to beat with­out that ex­tra load”. Preach.

Episode 20 (24 April) was a call-back 5

to sea­son 8’s hor­ri­fy­ing plane crash fi­nale (2012) with Riggs (Martin Hen­der­son) and Mered­ith’s flight hit­ting tur­bu­lence while they were try­ing to join the Mile High Club. Mere’s brav­ery shone through as she put aside her ter­ror and flash­backs to treat the pas­sen­gers.

More drama’s around the cor­ner for Dr Mered­ith and her col­leagues.
