SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Grey’s Anatomy episode “All of Me.” Proceed with caution.
Grey’s Anatomy season finales are always emotional roller coasters. Whether the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial are dealing with plane crashes, active shooters, or the death of a beloved patient (RIP Denny) there is always some big twist that leaves fans clamoring for the next season. This year’s finale was no different, but it also had added importance because it marked the final episode of Dr. April Kepner and Dr. Arizona Robbins.
The finale also (finally) featured the wedding of Alex and Jo. But this is Grey’s Anatomy and a wedding can never go off without a hitch. The couple almost missing their own wedding wasn’t even the craziest part of the episode. Here we take a look at the most shocking moments from “All of Me”.
April’s New Mission
After surviving her near death experience in last week’s episode, fans were wondering just how April would leave the show. It comes as shock that April has merely chosen to leave her job as a trauma surgeon. Instead of saving lives in a hospital, she is now providing medical care for the homeless. It’s the perfect sendoff for her character. April has been defined by her faith and desire to do good in the world. While it would have been incredibly emotional to see her die, it’s a wonderful surprise that Grey’s has allowed April to survive and go out with such an amazing legacy. It was also great getting to see her jump into action and save a life in the field (with a pinwheel!) one last time.
Miranda Decides to De-Stress
After her heart attack this season, Bailey has had a new outlook on life. Despite Webber‘s praise of her as a leader, she decides it’s time to take a break from her duties as Chief and focus on her research and surgeries. She is finally taking some much needed time for herself and putting her own health first. However, her decision to hire Teddy to take over for her in the interim is sure to ruffle some feathers.
April planned the perfect wedding for Jo and Alex, but thanks to an emergency surgery, the couple getting trapped in a barn, and a mix up in directions to the location, plans had to be changed. However, all her work was not in vain. Despite being left at the alter by April once before, Matthew decides he wants to try again. The couple got married right then and there, which gave April her happy ending and a new shot at love.
At the same time Jo and Alex have their own perfect wedding. The couple was married in a ceremony performed by Meredith on the all important ferry. It was an emotional moment, further cementing Meredith’s bond with Alex that has extended to now include Jo. Cue the tears.
A Happy Ending For #Calzona?
April might not be the the only one getting her happy ending. Arizona may have to leave her friends and the career she loves to move to New York, but she may have someone waiting for her once she arrives. Callie is single now and the two have been trading texts that make Arizona smile. Callie seems to share this feeling, sending a message saying she can’t wait to see Arizona. Despite all the hardships and heartbreak the couple has been through, this hint that there could be happiness again is a nice way to celebrate the groundbreaking couple and leave fans with hope for their future.
Teddy is Pregnant?!?
Of course just when Amelia and Owen were settling into their life as a little family and Amelia was getting ready to confess her feelings for him, Teddy returns. And it looks like she may have some BIG news to share. It appears as though Teddy is pregnant. Why else would she come back to Seattle if not to tell Owen about their baby? Owen has always wanted to be a father and is the king of doing the right thing so this is sure to change things drastically. Poor Amelia.
There is already plenty of drama to look forward to when Grey’s Anatomy returns for its 15th (!) season this Fall.
