If you hear someone sniffing at your end, just let them be – they’re probably mourning the death of their favorite Grey’s Anatomy character. The two-hour long crossover episode ended on an emotional note as Dr. Andrew Deluca was stabbed to death. It was a noble death, as he was only trying to expose a sex trafficker and then things quickly escalated.
Owen Hunt and Teddy Altman were the ones operating meanwhile he went in and out of consciousness. We also saw him visiting Meredith at the beach in a dream sequence.
He told her that he doesn’t regret anything. He said that he witnessed several atrocities throughout his life – homeless people in the street asking for help, people who can’t pay their medical bills, children who’re abused by their caregiver, etc. He said that people simply stand back, watching the injustice, and claim that it’s none of their business – but it is.
We might change the channel and tune out, but he decided to take a step and stop one crime from happening;he not just saved lives in the operation theatre but also outside. He made a difference, and that it’s a good enough reason to die.
He put it quite beautifully – hit every nerve. He said: "The people who take to the streets screaming out for change, they're written off as crazy, they're written off as extreme. It doesn't make any sense. It makes no sense. What you did, Meredith, risking your medical license to save that little girl; that makes sense. And what I did — following that women and not letting her get away with it, not letting her get away, not letting her harm another single human being. Yeah, it was dangerous, but it made sense. It's the only thing that made sense. So I don't regret it."
He seemed a bit hesitant when he met Meredith in the dream sequence, but he was content with the way he died. He said that he didn’t know what to expect, but he wanted to tell Meredith that he was inspired by her courage and resilience. He was insecure, but her faith in his ability made him stronger.
As you can tell, it was an emotional ride and the fans were upset over his death. It was unnecessary and only there to increase the shock value. After all these years, this is exactly what the show has done and it’s upsetting.
All we know is that he is now in a happy place – but was it time? Wasn’t he too young and too remarkable to leave this world so soon? Fans who’ve grown up watching the show are used to getting hit with one tragedy after another –plane crash, bombing, gun shooter, road accident, and what not!
Anyway, we’re just wondering if it’s time for the series to end for good. Just go and like our page on Facebook and check out the fans’ reactions on social media!
