Maurice Hall played Major William Allen in Grey's Anatomy 1323 "True Colors" directed by Kevin McKidd
It's season finale time in our favorite fictional Seattle hospital and we were brought right back into the thick of it as this w eek's episode opened with Meredith landing back at Grey Sloan Memorial just as an explosion ripped through the hospital, putting one and all at risk. Except for Owen Hunt, whom we knew to be back at Meredith's house with Amelia, awaiting further news of his sister Megan's return which we first heard about in last week's jaw-dropping episode.
This was an hour's worth of point, counterpoint as we saw Owen and Amelia process the imminent return of his sister Megan, who had been held hostage in Iraq for the last ten years while everyone else was at the hospital evacuating patients and trying to find Stephanie and her injured pediatric patient / fellow hostage. Miranda was tested in the extreme as she had to determine what kind of Chief of Surgery she wanted to be - one that followed hospital emergency protocol or one who could throw that protocol out the window to save lives in risky ways. Guess which approach she took?
Jackson, feeling immense guilt over Stephanie's disappearance, pulled one of his old tricks and walked back into the burning hospital in search of his coworker and former girlfriend. Meredith, whose name is on the now burning hospital after all, joined the rescue endeavors even though she was on a personal mission to find Nathan and deliver fateful news to him about Megan's return. Stephanie was a trooper throughout this episode as she worked diligently to keep her own self together while saving the life of the little girl with whom she'd been taken hostage. And, to the delight of some Richard Webber diehard fans, we saw Eliza struggle to keep up.
Meanwhile, back in Owen's skewed version of reality, Amelia broke the news to him about the explosion at the hospital. He got momentarily sidetracked, slipping into Chief of Trauma Surgery mode until Amelia brought him back to it being really okay to focus on his own concerns at the moment as his sister was soon to arrive at a nearby Army hospital. He foggily agreed to her plan while she instructed the babysitter how to tend to Meredith's kids until she could return from work.
It seemed like Trauma Team had it all wired up though, as April took on the duty of organizing the patient evacuation, treatment of those injured due to the fire, while also assigning duties to hospital staff amidst the smoke and ash falling from the hospital. It also gave her an opportunity to interact with Maggie around Jackson's tendency to run into things on fire to rescue people. Oh, and just to prove how good she was at multitasking, April also took the time to tell Maggie she'd noticed that aybe Maggie and Jackson had feelings for each other and urged them to make a go of it. And off Maggie's gobsmacked expression, cue the Japril fans' gasps of despair!

Grey's Anatomy Might Have Just Killed Off [Spoiler]
by Lauren Piester | Thu, May 11, 2017 10:26 PM
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.
Jessica Derschowitz@jessicasara | Posted on May 11, 2017 at 10:59pm EDT
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.
