Grey's Anatomy Might Have Just Killed Off [Spoiler]

Grey's Anatomy confirmed many of our suspicions tonight, but it still managed to shock us pretty seriously.
First, let's talk about that ending. Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) was held hostage by a psychotic rapist patient after thinking he just wanted to be reunited with the love of his life, instead of the woman he had been trying to rape when she caused the car they were in to go off of a cliff.
He planned to set a small fire to get the emergency doors open, but instead, Edwards set him on fire, which also lit up an oxygen tank and caused a huge explosion.
Maybe, possibly, Stephanie could survive, but it's not looking likely. That was a pretty big explosion, and Hinton is reportedly leaving the show. Still, we're not ready to watch another one of these doctors die!
Elsewhere, Owen (Kevin McKidd) found out that his sister Megan is somehow still alive, and Alex (Justin Chambers) encountered Jo's husband (played by guest star Matthew Morrison) at a conference and first imagined beating him up and then telling him to stay away, but decided against both as he played out each scenario's unhappy ending in his head. Instead, he just watched as evil Will Schuster stole his cab, but we can't imagine he's gone for good at this point considering the strange way he locked in on Alex's face as he drove away.
In slightly better news, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Riggs (Martin Henderson) continued to get closer, though Mer is struggling with letting him stay over with her kids in the house.
Next week's finale looks extra intense with the hospital on fire, and as Kelly McCreary told us, "Everyone is in danger."
Remember how happy and not devastating last year's finale was? Those were some good times.
How are you feeling? Do you think Stephanie is dead? Sound off in the comments!
Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Grey’s Anatomy recap: 'True Colors'
An explosive cliffhanger sets up next week’s season finale.

Let this be a lesson to all of us — when Shonda Rhimes says a season finale will be “on fire,” she’s not kidding around. As in, we’re gonna go into next week’s episode with the hospital actually ON FIRE.
And leave it to Grey’s to have a literal explosion not be the only shocker of the night. Let’s just scrub in and get right to all of it…
Alex tracks down Jo’s husband
Alex Karev has a particular set of skills, and he’ll use them to locate the abusive estranged husband you’re hiding from and fantasize about punching him in the face. Alex has indeed found Dr. Paul Stadler (Glee alum Matthew Morrison) and is lurking around the hotel where he’s attending a medical conference, conflicted as to whether he should approach the guy and what he should do. First, he imagines chatting Paul up at the hotel bar, introducing himself with a fake last name and getting drunk with him before throwing punches at him outside. But that daydream ends with police sirens and Alex in jail, and nobody wants to worry about him getting arrested again (raise your hand if you were glad that was just imaginary, because I’m right there with you).
Then, he imagines doing his best Liam Neeson/Taken impression to the guy before he gives a speech at the conference, casually walks over, and warns that he’s watching him, and how if he ever goes near Jo again, he’ll find him and kill him. That scenario also takes a nightmare turn when he imagines coming back to Seattle to find Paul strangling her. (Raise your hand if you were glad that was imaginary, too.)
But then we see the non-imaginary, no-one-dies-or-gets-arrested scenario play out: Paul cuts in front of Alex on the street to get a cab, then apologizes and offers to share it, if he’s heading to the airport as well. Our dear Dr. Karev stares at him, but ultimately doesn’t say anything about Jo and lets the cab drive away. Much less dramatic, but is this the last we’ll see of the two of them in the same place?
Owen’s shocking sister news
When Owen gets a knock at the door and two Army officers are waiting outside, it doesn’t look like the news is good. And at first, we think it isn’t – all we hear is that it’s news about his sister, and then Owen goes into work in a shell-shocked daze. When a mother tearfully thanks him for stopping their baby daughter from choking, he’s abrupt and non-Owen-like with them and walks off. Amelia sees this and goes after him, and once they’re alone in one of the supply closets, he tells her they’ve found his sister… alive.
He tells her Megan Hunt was found in a basement in a rebel-held neighborhood and she’s now in an Army hospital in Germany. He’s still in shock and can’t bring himself to believe it’s really her, and Amelia calmly says they’ll find out for sure.
Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Episode 23 Review: True Colors

Holy fudge that was an explosive hour!
Yes, I know, that was an awful joke, but what can I say? I have a dark sense of humor, and joking helps me cope. After everything they threw at us on Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Episode 23, coping is essential.
Kevin McKidd does such a good job directing, doesn't he?
This season of Grey's Anatomy has done the thing I absolutely abhor. It started off strong, devolved into something akin to a hot mess in the middle, and now it's coming in hot for the end of the season. Oops! I did it again. Anyway, we can all agree that Grey's Anatomy Season 13 has not been its best, and that has been disappointing.
So, now, we have this "Megan is alive" reveal. Most of us pretty much predicted she was alive a long time ago, and we have been impatiently waiting for them to get to the revelation since last season.
Just like we have been waiting for something about Jo's husband since last season. Seriously, we were waiting sooooo long. I was channeling Judge Judy. Get on with it, already!
Naturally, Grey's Anatomy dumped both on us in the penultimate episode of the season despite not having consistent storylines leading up to either of them. Hours worth of hospital politics was more important, I guess.
Because we saw the Megan reveal coming for so long, it didn't hit the shocking mark, but it made up for it with the emotional impact. Can someone hold Owen? Kevin McKidd killed me. I am writing this from beyond the grave.
Owen: Two soldiers came to the house today. They said they found her. They said they found Megan.
This was one of those rare weeks in our favorite fictional Seattle hospital in which we caught sight of Owen Hunt again, albeit in a painfully complicated story directed by Kevin McKidd himself. But this is Grey's Anatomy so what other kind of story is there in that universe? Considering we're almost to the end of the season, Owen's fans should count themselves lucky that he wasn't in the hospital when a vengeful patient set himself on fire while trying to escape, causing a large explosion. Okay, let's go back to the beginning of the hour so that y'all know how we got here.
The main focus of Owen's reappearance seemed to be a step forward in the storyline of his Missing In Action ister Megan disguised as a further test to his marriage with Amelia. Unfortunately, we had to wait a while to hear what message was delivered by the two army personnel who showed up on Owen's doorstep as he got ready for work. Considering one of them was a chaplain, we knew it wasn't going to be any kind of good news. Viewers were meant to be inside Owen's shock, as instead of hearing the news as it was delivered in that opening scene, we heard him walk through the hospital shrouded in a static-laden buzz that seemed to indicate Owen's shattered attempt at processing what had happened.
Owen's abrupt behavior surprised April as she attempted to treat a choking infant in the Emergency Room. His hard slaps on the infant's back dislodged the coin on which she'd choked and got us to, of course, Amelia performing the neurological consult he gruffly recommended before stepping away. This gave her a perfect excuse to find Owen, clearly freaked out, in an exam room to deliver the parents' request to speak to him further. In another stalemate move on the Owen and Amelia chess board, rather than investigate why he seemed so off his game, she simply got irritated and left the room after delivering the message.
When he caught up to the baby's parents and the mother thanked him with a tearful hug for saving her child's life, Owen fled from the emotional closeness and hid out in another empty exam room. This time Amelia followed him and asked what was going on. Oh, and just in case this story wasn't complicated enough, this was just after she finished encouraging Meredith again to move forward with Nathan. Owen finally choked out that he had news about Megan, and, wait for it...she's alive! While I'm grateful Owen has a storyline and that, perhaps, he and Amelia might, just might, remember how to talk to each other, it's distressing how his story looped us back to Meredith's story in a typical Grey's house of cards. Are we destined to see Meredith on the dark and twisty road again? Let's hope not, but since this is Grey's, that might be a vain hope.
Soon we saw Amelia take charge as Owen began to crumble under the weight of the situation. While the two of them were at Meredith's house trying to track down information on whether or not it was indeed Megan who was being transported to an Army hospital in Germany, we soon saw allusions to Owen's past, parts of which were news to Amelia. After Teddy, former Seattle surgeon who served overseas with Owen, Megan, and Nathan, confirmed that Owen's sister had been found, Amelia set about having her transferred to Seattle. She was also smart enough to call in the leading expert in PTSD to help Owen deal with the guilt he soon showed us at having moved on with his life while his sister had been held hostage for nearly 10 years.
Once Meredith arrived home with the kids the rest of the story was set into motion as Amelia related the truth of Megan's reappearance. Meredith then took it upon herself to return to the hospital so as to share this news with Nathan. And wouldn't you know it, just as Meredith got out of her car a fiery explosion shook the hospital. Guess next week must be the season finale, huh?
Elsewhere in the hospital: Meredith and Nathan woke up together and Maggie noticed their coziness at work; Alex tracked down Jo's husband, a fellow doctor, with likely to be disastrous results given his imaginings of what might happen when he confronted him; Richard approved Stephanie's return to work after a short round of therapy; Arizona and Eliza woke up together so they seemed to be going strong; two patients of the week came in unconscious and partially disrobed after a car crash; Jackson and Maggie continued to bond; Eliza put Stephanie on scut duty monitoring the male patient in the car accident who grew creepy and combative as it came to light he'd tried to rape the woman in the car; the hospital went into lockdown as they tried to find him after he took Stephanie hostage in an attempt to escape; and that's where that explosion came from as he tried to set a fire to get the doors to unlock again and, with Stephanie's assistance, ended up setting himself aflame.
