"It's a beautiful day to save lives"

So after years of hearing about it...I finally sat down and watched Grey's Anatomy. I can tell you that it 100% lives up to its reputation, it is the best and the worst thing I have ever watched. It's the worst thing mainly because of how sad it is...and how much of an emotional person I am because I find myself crying at near enough every episode! So if you haven't seen it then you definitely definitely should! 

Derek Shepherd (Mcdreamy)
Oh Mcdreamy...what can't I say about him? He was my main reason for starting Grey's Anatomy...just look at that face! Although I knew he was going to die in the end I just couldn't help falling in love with him! He is a brilliant neurosurgeon with a love for ferry boats and has a smile that could melt a million hearts..if you're not intrigued by now you're crazy!

Meredith Grey
Meredith is so amazing, I was in love from the first scene. She has been through so much and still she comes out smiling (after taking a while to process things obviously). She has dodged death so many times during the show which has had me on the edge of my seat each time (even though I knew full well she doesn't die!!)

Izzie Stevens
At the start of the show Izzie was definitely high up in my favourites...she was just a big bundle of joy! Although she had many different and hard hitting story lines she still managed to stay some what her happy self, I wish her ending hadn't happened the way it did and if she could come back it would be perfect, even if it was just one episode for a proper ending!

George O'Malley
ahh, George...the cutest best friend who had such a brutal ending! He was such a great character and did not deserve what he got. He had many amazing moments, his relationships with Callie and Izzie were some of the best. I knew he was going to die before I watched it but I definitely didn't know how bad it would be when I was watching! 

Cristina Yang
Cristina is such a loveable character. She's such a different person compared to everyone else, she is very closed off but I just can't help but love her! The way she acts, even if she doesn't try, is just hilarious. Her friendship with Meredith is just beyond amazing...something that I have loved from the start!

Alex Karev
Oh what an amazing man! He started off being such an idiot and someone I didn't think I would end up loving but wow I was wrong! His relationship with Izzie was one of my favourite parts of the show. But I think Alex becoming a pediatric surgeon was so amazing, the way he acts with the children and how attached he gets to his patients is just one of the best things!

Arizona Robbins
I never knew how much I would love Arizona when she first appeared but I truly do! Before the plane crash she was literally the happiest person alive who would wheel through the hospital on heelies...which just shows she is perfect for a pediatric surgeon! Arizona's storyline after the plane crash though was so hard to watch mainly because after everything she had been through she just wasn't the same person anymore, losing her leg had major effects on her life but never changed my opinion on her character. Her relationship with Callie is honestly such a perfect thing!

Lexie Grey
Her first scene where she meets Derek in the bar had me screaming because I knew she was Meredith's sister and I thought something would happen between them, which also had me disliking her. But then she started at the hospital and my god I just loved her! She was just the nicest/funniest person and seeing her building her relationship with Meredith was something amazing. I knew when I was watching she was going to die in the plane crash but I just never knew how much it would make me cry! I loved her and Mark together and really thought they would be back together before she died but really it was a declaration of his love as she is dying which killed me! Lexie definitely deserved so much better!

Mark Sloan
ahh Mark...Derek's best friend who Addison slept with (something I never understood until I saw how could anybody cheat on Mcdreamy?! but then Mcsteamy came walking in and everything made sense!). He was such an idiot who I just couldn't help but love. His friendship with Callie was the greatest and the way he changed into a better version of himself when Sofia was born was the best. Mark and Lexie were just such an amazing pairing and as much as I wish they hadn't died I'm glad they died not that long apart (I'm so sure Mark made his injuries so much worse by trying to lift the plane off of Lexie) so they are together forever now. 

April Kepner
April at times really reminds me of myself and has becoming one of my favourite characters (that sounds rather vain doesn't it?). She still manages to be happy and smiley despite what she has been through, being fired twice, finding her best friends dead body, watching her boss get shot, and losing her baby, which has just shown how strong of a character she is. Her relationship with Jackson is my favourite thing!

Jackson Avery
I swear this hospital is full of beautiful doctors! I loved Jackson from the moment he came onto the screen, his little rivalry with Yang was something I loved. Then his friendship with Mark when he was specialising in plastics was so amazing and the fact he stayed with Mark when he was dying telling him about all their cases was so cute! Jackson and April's relationship is just so so perfect.

Season 1
The first scene was just pure magic, as soon as I watched it I just knew I was going to be hooked! It was such a great way to introduce the two main characters and they were just the cutest!! 
When the other doctors were introduced I made my first impressions that I was half wrong half right about. George was just the cutest and he definitely stayed that way. Izzie was compassionate which she showed many times. Cristina just seemed too self involved but really she was very confident and there for everyone when they need it. Alex was just an idiot at the start but he is definitely one of my favourites now! 

Meredith and Derek meeting again after the first scene when she finds out he is her boss was amazing, and all their scenes after had me  wanting them together, so when they were sneaking around it was the best! But the biggest moment/shock of the season was when it is revealed that Derek is actually married like I went crazy because for the entire season I was thinking to myself 'I'm sure I heard he's married?' but ended up convincing myself it was a different show and then this happened and I was screaming!!!

Season 2
I hated the fact that Addison was a series regular because I loved Derek and Meredith and she was just ruining it but I actually came to love her so much! When George performed heart surgery in a lift I knew this show was just going to be iconic, it was so amazing to watch! I was so angry that Derek chose Addison over Meredith (although I knew they eventually ended up together) but her 'pick me, choose me, love me' speech was just everything!

A favourite moment in this season was the episode the guy had a bomb inside of him, it was just so amazingly acted out and insanely gripping and had me on the edge of my seat! The scene where the paramedic takes her hand out is just so nerve wracking because I just expected an explosion but Meredith taking the girls place instead made me super worried about what was going to happen. Then Derek is in surgery and hasn't taken his eye off of what he is doing even when he is talking but as soon as he hears Meredith is holding the bomb he is just so shaken up he loses concentration which had me dying because obviously he loves her and cannot lose her!

Izzie and Denny's relationship was the loveliest and most heartbreaking storyline of season 2. The scene where she cuts Denny's LVAD wire to get him the donor heart was so brilliantly acted out. I cried so much because of all the emotion Izzie had during the scene, Katherine Heigl is an amazing actress, and the way everyone helps to keep him alive once she has cut the wire just shows how close they had become as they were all risking their careers.
The most heartbreaking moment was when Denny died alone in his room. Even though he got the heart and proposed, he ended up having a stroke before Izzie got to his room..watching her cry over his dead body was the moment I realized this show was going to leave me (even more of) an emotional mess! My favourite moment of the season was Derek and Meredith sleeping together in the finale, it was the best and most waited for moment!

Season 3
Derek and Meredith getting close again this season was just everything I've ever wanted! 
Izzie mourning Denny was so sad especially when she had to go back to the hospital and just stood outside all day, it shows how much this hospital and his death affected her.

I hated Burke after his hand injury because he was hiding it and letting Cristina perform his what doctor does that to their patients?! It was so heartbreaking when Meredith's mum started reliving the night Richard left her and tells Meredith (not knowing) that she should've never had her, (but after watching season 11..could she have been talking about Maggie?)
Callie and George getting married was definitely a favourite thing was Alex's line 'dude, she's Callie O'Malley' it just made me laugh so much! 

The ferry boat accident is another of my favourite episodes that legit had me feeling so many different emotions! Izzie having to treat the man stuck between two cars made me so nervous. Alex saving the pregnant woman was amazing and just was adding to what an amazing pediatric surgeon he was going to become. But Meredith treating the man who eventually knocked her into the water was the worst...I was literally screaming because the only person who knew she was in there was a little girl who was in shock and not speaking. But Derek jumping in the water to pull out an almost dead Meredith was amazing, she then ends up in limbo with Denny, the bomb guy and an ex patient.

I was sobbing when they were trying to revive Meredith (even though I knew full well she wasn't going to die because this is season 3 and she is on season 12) but by now I was so attached to the characters just watching them all when it was happening was just breaking my heart! Meredith then seeing her mum in limbo was actually quite emotional it was like she was lucid again and she got a nice final moment with her and then she finally woke up! 
Izzie and George getting super drunk then sleeping together was lowkey shocking but also kind of amazing!! By the end of season 3 Burke was literally my least favourite person and then him walking out on Cristina at their wedding was the worst thing ever!!

Season 4
Lexie Grey (Meredith's half sister) becomes a regular as an intern and I actually hated her at the beginning because she sort of hit on Derek!! (MerDer for life ok!). 
George and Izzie were actually so cute for the time they actually lasted, such an odd pairing but for some reason it was just so perfect. The ambulance crash outside of the hospital was so sad with the paramedic dying then and there but was such a good story line to see how they handled it.
Derek and Meredith breaking up was like the worst thing ever (like I knew they would end up getting married but god I just hated when they weren't together!)

What could be worse than Derek and Meredith breaking up? Well I'll tell you...Derek dating some nurse called Rose, like that was just one big fat no!
The friendship that grew between Lexie and George was so great. Another friendship that I absolutely loved was Callie and Addison..they just grew so close and it was the best!
The season 5 finale was the greatest thing ever...Meredith and Derek and a house of candles and basically getting back together. It was just so beautiful and I cried so much! 

Season 5
Cristina getting stabbed by an icicle and meeting Owen was great. I felt so sorry for Izzie when the person she stole the heart from for Denny comes into the hospital. Izzie starting to see Denny again was heartbreaking (mainly because I knew how the storyline ends out) to watch.

This season is the start of the beautiful Mark and Lexie love story, which is basically one of my favourite things to come out of the show (as well as MerDer).
Arizona's story begins which I love as she's just super cute wheeling around on heelies.
When Izzie was trying to figure out what Denny meant by 'I'm here for you' and finding out she was ill was such an amazing scene, the way she was screaming at him even though really all he was was a hallucination and then the kiss at the end was pure heartbreaking.
Callie and Arizona's first kiss was so amazing and I didn't realise in that moment how much I was going to love them!
Izzie finding out the intern messed her test results up and that she had a brain tumour was so so horrible.

Izzie telling Cristina about her being ill and Cristina trying to help her showed how caring Cristina can be, although the way she told Alex and Bailey was kinda funny though. 
Owen strangling Cristina because of his ptsd was so the way it was filmed was amazing! 
Derek's proposal in the lift was just the cutest thing ever and so fitting because there had been so many lovely MerDer scenes filmed in a lift.
Watching Izzie starting chemo and pretending to be okay when she is around the others was so sad but her planning Derek and Meredith's wedding gave her something to be happy about.
Derek and Meredith giving their wedding to Alex and Izzie was the greatest!

When Izzie signed a DNR I pretty much died myself, like I was SO nervous!
Meredith and Derek's post it wedding was amazing, that whole scene was just pure cuteness! 
The finale was the most heartbreaking so far, a John Doe was brought in after jumping in front of a bus to save a woman. I knew who it was as I read up on it but forgot so when Meredith had to relieved pressure in their skull and their eyes opened I screamed because it was George!! Everytime he was trying to tell her who he was but wasn't strong enough just killed me! But then he finally got through to her and wrote 007(his nickname since the pilot) in her hands with his finger and I was crying so so much as they all tried to save him! 
Izzie loses her memory for a bit after surgery and when her and Alex are celebrating it coming back she ends up crashing in his arms. The season ends with her having a 'dream' of her entering a lift (the same as the time Denny died) but once the doors opened George was standing there in his Army uniform (something he was planning to join) which I thought was so beautiful!

Season 6
After the finale of season 5 you find out that Izzie survived and George died. Which was just so see how everyone reacted to the news, one that definitely stuck with me is Mark and Lexie finding out when the girl that he saved from being hit by the bus comes over to them like 'who's George? everyone's crying saying John Doe is George' like could you imagine finding out like that, George and Lexie were pretty much best friends and that must've been devastating!

Seattle Grace and Mercy West merge, bringing in new doctors- April Kepner, Jackson Avery, Charles Percy & Reed Adamson. 
Izzie walking out on Alex was so heartbreaking especially when he breaks down crying to Meredith.
Another one of my favourite episodes purely because of the way it was written and played out is when they are trying to find out how a patient died so suddenly and it was so interesting to watch because I was watching it from the beginning and figuring it out at the same time they were. Seeing the one tiny mistake April made when checking the patient and how much of an impact that had on the patients life was crazy. 

Derek removing an inoperable spinal tumour just proved how amazing he was.
Richard starts drinking again after accidently messing up a surgery which causes Derek to tell the board about Richard drinking again which results in him being fired and Derek is interim chief.
Derek hires April back, which is the best thing because she is amazing! 

Another one of my favourite episodes and one of the most shocking is the shooting episode. It is revealed Meredith is pregnant and then you see the husband of a patient who died walking through the hospital he then goes onto shoot Reed in the head and then Karev who manages to make it to a lift.
April finding Reed's body so heartbreaking as they were best friends and she just comes across her body in the most shocking way. 
Mark and Lexie find Alex in the lift bleeding out and work together to try and save him. Derek getting shot was the worst...I was literally Meredith in that moment and screaming like hell! 
Dr Percy gets shot in a patients room for being a surgeon (while the patient pretends to be dead already), Bailey avoids getting shot by pretending to be a nurse, Bailey and the patient then work together to try and save his life but because the lifts were shut off in the lockdown he dies with both of them which had me sobbing like crazy!
The shooter being in the OR where Cristina and Jackson are trying to save Derek was SO intense to watch. Meredith is telling him to shoot her but he ends up shooting Owen. The shooter meets Lexie again and I was crying because I seriously thought he would shoot but the swat team ended up shooting him which was a relief! Then Meredith having a miscarriage while trying to save Owen was honestly so upsetting to watch!

Season 7
Alex avoiding lifts because of the shooting showed the extent of how it affected him. 
The episode where a documentary crew are at the hospital filming about life after the shooting was such a different episode it kind of reminded me of The Office which was such an interesting way of looking at the show. The woman who was with Bailey and Percy at the time of the shooting comes to the hospital again for her surgery but never wakes up from it, which was really sad because with all she went through in the shooting she died from just not waking up from surgery.

Arizona going to Africa without Callie actually killed I just loved them.
Arizona coming back because she missed Callie was amazing and even though I love them Callie slamming the door in her face was such an amazing scene! But then Callie being pregnant with Mark's baby was so shocking but at the same time so hilarious!!
My all time favourite episode is the musical episode. When I first heard about it it seemed like such an odd concept,like a serious medical drama with a musical episode but it just worked so well! Chasing Cars and How to Save a Life are two of my favourite songs and will forever remind me of this (also Derek's death like thank you Grey's for breaking my heart). The way they worked in all the songs was so amazing and made Callie and Arizona's accident way more intense. The Calzona wedding made the whole season so much more amazing!

Season 8
The softball game was hilarious with Lexie being jealous of who Mark was dating so she hit her with a ball. 
The ambulance with Meredith, Alex and the premature baby breaks down and a car with a family inside crashes into it and they try to save them. All but the dad and children die straight away, in the hospital the dad keeps crashing so the eldest daughter tells Meredith that they should take him off life support which Meredith tells her that it's not a choice she can make but the girl informs Meredith it's her 18th birthday so she's technically old enough which was just heartbreaking!

Meredith dreaming what her life could've been like if Ellis and Richard where together and were her parents. Her and Cristina were enemies and she was best friends with April who was also sleeping with her fiancé Alex. Owen and Callie were together and had 3 children, Addison and Derek are still together, she is pregnant which turns out to be Marks. Lexie is an orphan and a drug addict, George failed his intern exam and never seen again and Izzie went crazy after Denny's death..which was rather weird to watch to be honest after seven seasons of the characters to see them as something else was just odd. The ending to the episode was amazing with Meredith and Derek in the bar saying 'You're just a guy in a bar, you're just a girl in a bar' like they just can't stay away from each other!

Another amazing episode was the plane crash, like it was filmed so well and the acting was just so on point! 
Cristina in shock was the funniest thing, although it was meant to be serious it was just so funny to see her just go on about how she only has one shoe. Lexie is stuck under a piece of the plane, Cristina and Mark try and help her while Meredith goes to look for Derek. Cristina realises how injured Lexie is and goes to get Meredith to come back, Mark still try to help her, finally admits that she is going to die. Mark holds Lexie's hand telling her how much he loves her and how they are going to get married and have three children and that they are 'meant to be', she then mutters the words meant to be with a smile on face just as she dies. (I am fully sobbing in this moment watching it...I never thought the moment Mark would admit he was still in love with her was when she was dying like god so much heartbreak!) Meredith and Cristina get there just after and Meredith is devastated. They all find Derek after and fix his hand as much as they can. Mark hasn't moved from Lexie's side, when they go to get him to move they realise he's more injured  than they thought and have to operate on him as sterile as possible (for the middle of a crash site in the woods).
After re watching this episode I noticed a scene that I obviously missed because of how much I was crying. Arizona is telling Mark to stay strong and stay alive basically and he goes 'Lexie's waiting for me...I'll be okay' like did I miss that?! It is such a heartbreaking line but just adds to the fact that they were meant to be...even in death they couldn't be apart.
Nobody at the hospital knows what is going on. Owen finally listens to his messages to find out they never made it to the other hospital. It ends with everyone stranded trying their best to stay awake. 

Season 9
This season starts a month after the plane crash and there are new interns; Ross, Wilson, Brookes and Edwards.
Mark is in a coma and will be taken off life support which is just heartbreaking.
A new peds attending has taken over Arizona's job which had me worried about what happened to her after the crash.
Jackson sitting with Mark talking to him about the cases they had was just so cute. Mark is taken off of life support; Callie and Derek are in the room with him while Bailey, Richard, Jackson, Ben and other staff are outside.
Callie goes home and you see that Arizona had her lower leg amputated after the crash. 

Flashbacks of Cristina telling Owen what happened to them after the plane crashed before they were rescued. Cristina stayed awake for 4 days, remembers everything, the fire went out, she had to get bugs out of Arizona's leg, Mark 'kept dying', Arizona had the last of the water. Cristina drank her own pee and she thinks maybe she drank plane fuel. Heard animal noises, fighting and growling and thought they were going to kill her but they were actually fighting over Lexie's body (horrifying doesn't even cover it...could you imagine!) and she tried her best to keep the off. 
Flashback of Arizona being in the hospital after the crash and scared of losing her leg so trying to do everything not to lose it but as the infection gets worse Alex has to amputate it.
Flashbacks of Mark being in the hospital in critical condition and then waking up better for a while (knowing what was about to happen) before falling into a coma until he died.

Arizona is angry at Callie for amputating her leg. Meredith helping a woman on the street who was in a car accident and reminded her of Lexie was just super emotional! 
Bailey getting Arizona out of her house and walking was amazing to watch.
The plane survivors end up suing the hospital and Owen, as he signed off on a crappy plane.
Meredith and Derek having a baby, legit was the best thing to come out of this season so far!

The hospital was found guilty of negligence and the plane survivors (and non survivors) each win $15 million. Insurance won't pay out as there was only 2 attendings allowed to be on the plane at once but Arizona took Alex's place which lead to there being 3 on board. Hospital have to pay out which leads them to bankruptcy.
April sneaking a badly injured boy into the ER (after it had been closed) and secretly operating on him was such an amazing thing like I feel like this is when April started to become my favourite.
The plane crash victims discussing whether they should buy the hospital with the money they got. When Catherine offered Harper Avery to help them buy the hospital I was crying purely because I was so happy, then I was sobbing even more when Jackson named the new hospital 'Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital'.

Meredith falling down the stairs had me gasping like crazy because she was so late in her pregnancy and just couldn't deal with anything bad happening.
Then Meredith going into labour when the power went out was so nerve wracking, having a c section in the dark where the baby was fine but her fall caused a lot of bleeding.
There is a bus crash outside the hospital, doctors go and help the victims, Jackson stayed behind to help a child nobody saw then there is a massive explosion and I'm not even kidding April's reaction when she thought Jackson was hurt was so amazing!!
Bailey has to perform emergency surgery to save Meredith's life and then Richard is electrocuted when trying to fix the power.

Season 10
Following on from the storm Richard is still in the basement of the hospital. Bailey sends Shane down to find him but he tells Heather to do it instead so he can steal her surgery. She gets down there and sees Richard on the floor and goes to help but gets electrocuted in the process.
Callie and Sofia move out after Arizona cheats...which basically killed me, like Calzona is one of my favourite ships!
After being electrocuted, once she had been found and is in surgery...Heather dies. 

The Halloween episode actually scared me (like ugh I'm such a wimp) the ghost like old lady and the zombie like drug addict just scared me like oh my god. 
Callie asks Arizona to move back in and basically made my life. 
Jackson confessing his love to April during her wedding to Matthew and running out together was so amazing and literally made my day, like they looked so happy and I just had so many Japril feels!
Derek starts working for the President. Jackson and April got married after running out of her wedding to Matthew.

April is pregnant and that made me so happy like I just love her!
Cristina at a talk in Switzerland where some person in the audience asks question who turns out to be Burke and I kid you not I was screaming so much I almost choked on what I was I just wasn't expecting it and then Burke offers Cristina his job of running the hospital. 
Amelia moves to Seattle, which is great because I really really love her!!
Cristina leaving was actually pretty sad, like it would be amazing if she could return. 
Meredith won't leave Seattle with Derek because she feels like she belongs there.
There's a new cardio surgeon called Maggie who turns out to be Ellis Grey and Richard's baby, so Meredith has ANOTHER half sister...which made me super angry because like what was the point?! They should've just kept Lexie alive (like there was definitely no reason to kill her...and then bring a character that was basically a replacement!)

Season 11
Alex and Meredith's friendship gets a lot closer after Cristina leaves which makes me super happy.
Maggie tells Meredith that Ellis is her mum too, Meredith is angry and doesn't believe her. Richard tells Maggie that he is her dad and she's angry at him for not telling her any sooner. 
Callie and Arizona are in marriage counselling and are on a 30 day seperation and after the 30 days Arizona tells Callie how much she loves her but Callie tells her that she doesn't feel the same and wants more time to herself which basically broke my heart!!

Dr Herman has an inoperable brain tumour which is why she has been trying to train Arizona for her job. Arizona gives Amelia Dr Herman's scans and she thinks she can remove it and save her. 
Stephanie giving April an ultrasound and figures out that April & Jackson's baby may have a birth defect was such a sad scene. April and Jackson finding out there's no hope for their baby surviving long after birth was so heartbreaking, to watch them go from so happy to literally broken was horrid! 
Amelia and Arizona come up with a plan to remove Dr Herman's tumour but she will only let them operate when it becomes almost inoperable (near her optical nerves). 

April and Jackson trying to figure out what to do if their baby is definitely not going to survive, Jackson wants to abort but it's against April's beliefs. After finding out Catherine comes to the hospital to look after them and suggests they choose a time to induce labour, baptise the baby and hold him until he died. Watching the whole scene was so sad and I just sobbed like crazy. 
Dr Herman's surgery begins. Amelia freezes during the surgery and begs Richard to call Derek as she thinks she can't continue but Richard talks her into carrying on. After the surgery when Dr Herman finally wakes up, she is blind which Stephanie is really upset about but Amelia talks her around because even though she is blind her tumour is gone and they saved her life.

The episode where the little girl phoned trying to save her mum had me crying so much, it was so intense, like a little girl alone with her mum. The doctors trying to help her resuscitate her mum by guiding her through making a hole and putting a straw through it to get rid of the blood (could you imagine having to do that?!). Then then having to teach her CPR over the phone by all singing staying alive to her was one of the saddest parts, I was crying so much especially when it was just the little girl singing until her phone died..but my god I was so happy when they finally got to the hospital. 
Meredith phoning Derek's phone and another woman answering had me screaming so much like I was so anti Derek in that moment it was insane!

Derek showing up back home had me screaming even more, turns out he actually kissed the woman who answered the phone (real dick move Derek Shepherd!) but ran back to Meredith because he loves her so much and she tells him she doesn't ever want to live with out him (talk about foreshadowing his death am I right?).
I feel like the episodes before Derek dies there was a lot of foreshadowing to his death...the biggest and most heartbreaking was a conversation between Meredith and Amelia where Amelia says 'you've never lost the love of your life, you've never cried over the body of the person you love most in this world' like watching this knowing what was going to happen to Derek was so horrible like in a few episodes this was going to be Meredith's life.

Derek leaves for DC to finish up what he was doing but Meredith gets a call saying her never made it to his meeting.
Another plane crash happens which brings a lot of victims to the hospital which brings back bad memories for Meredith, Arizona and Owen, seeing the flashbacks made it even more upsetting!
Meredith begins to worry about Derek not showing up in DC but Bailey tells her to wait until 5pm to start freaking out.
Alex admits to Arizona that it was him that amputated her leg after not crash and not Callie, when Arizona mentions it to Callie she tells her she took the blame so Arizona would just be mad at her and not Alex too (let's talk about how in love they are still).
Maggie learns about Lexie (aka who she replaced) and how she died in the plane crash. Just as it turns 5pm and Meredith is about to phone Derek a police car shows up at her house.

ahh now the most dreaded point in everyone's lives...the episode where Derek Shepherd dies! 
It starts off with flashbacks of Derek leaving and saying goodbye to Meredith...kick me in gut why don't you!
Derek leaves for DC and Meredith misses his call but leaves her a voicemail. He witnesses a car crash and like the doctor he is he stops to help the injured. He helps a mum and daughter get out of their car, the daughter helps him from then on, he fixes a dislocated leg, drags a couple from their car before it exploded (which is how the EMT's found them) and used dry cleaning bags to hold in a girls intestines in place.

After the ambulance took them away, he got in his car reaching for his phone and as he got up a massive truck comes driving into him at some speed. 
He is then taken to an overcrowded non trauma hospital and is mentally talking through his injuries and what the doctors are doing wrong. 
The people he saved in the car accident were also in the hospital and the little girl notices him and goes over, this was the point I started really sobbing because she was like 'you're not dead, I know you're not dead, you know how I know that? because I can feel your pulse, which means your heart is beating...your heart is beating which means you're not dead ok? Hey, eyes on me, you stay not dead ok? It's a beautiful day to save lives right?  So you stay not dead' like although it was super sad it made me so happy he wasn't alone with the stupid doctors at the hospital.
Instead of ordering a head CT they took him to an OR and he realised he was going to die because of the mistake they made. The neurosurgeon took an hour and a half to arrive because he was at dinner (like wow Derek wouldn't of done that!) after arriving he realises there is nothing he can do to save Derek. 
Meredith gets to the hospital and is told there was nothing they could've done to save him and then goes to his room to say a final goodbye and turn off his life support, this scene had flashbacks of their best bits while Chasing Cars was playing in the background...which basically killed me as well while I was sobbing every single tear from my body!

Meredith having to tell everyone that Derek had died was awful and of course I cried so much! 
Meredith leaves a note and leaves town after the funeral.
Owen and April go overseas for a military surgery program.
After almost a year (the episode was flipping through time) Meredith calls Alex to tell him that she and the kids are fine, after she hangs up she is shown very heavily pregnant.
Amelia has an emotional breakdown over Derek's death after suppressing it for so long, she ends up buying drugs and almost relapsing but Owen talks her out of taking them and she lets all her feelings out...such amazing acting in this scene!
Meredith begins to bleed and Zola has to call 911 paralleling Meredith saving Ellis' life. Meredith gives birth to a girl called Ellis and Alex shows up as he was her emergency contact, they go back to Seattle together.
Amelia is angry at Meredith for not telling her about Derek sooner as she could've helped. Meredith gives her Derek's last voicemail to listen to...such a touching scene! A scene that really moved me was when Meredith found Derek's ferry boat scrub cap and decided to wear it. It was such an iconic part of his character and the relationship between Meredith and Derek was such a big part of the show. To end there story line with this scene which basically symbolises that Derek will always be with Meredith was such a beautiful ending that definitely made me cry!

Season 12
This was the first season without Derek, and I wasn't too sure what it was going to be like as he was quite a big part of the show. The first few episodes seemed to heavily feature flashbacks which made me super sad!

Meredith is back in her old house with Maggie and Amelia and what I wanna know is who is living in the house that Derek built for Meredith??? like that was such an iconic part of their story and now its all gone! Maggie and DeLuca start sleeping together but ended it quite quickly so that is something I would love to see more of!

The dinner party, oh my god...Callie bringing Penny was INSANE! Drunk Arizona was such a highlight of the episode. But the greatest part was everyone finding out the truth about Penny, like "Perfect Penny killed my husband" was such an iconic line,and all the emotions ranging from sadness to anger made it such a fabulous episode. 

The episode where Meredith was attacked by a patient was definitely this seasons most gripping one, my favourite part was the fact that after being attacked Meredith wasn't able to hear anything, so most of the episode was then seen through her eyes which meant there was barely any sound, which made it so interesting to watch and you were just hanging off the emotions on everybody's face. 

Meredith's counselling after the attack just made me so emotional, the line "My mother died of Alzheimer's, My stepmother died of the hiccups, My sister died in a plane crash, My husband was hit by a semi" like that just shows how heartbreaking Meredith's life is.

The episode where April and Jackson get divorced is such a sad one, it is filled with flashbacks of their life together which basically broke my heart as it brought back so many Japril feels but also some from old episodes especially a conversation between Jackson and Bailey where she says "Sloan is on a plane to Idaho right now" like seriously I had so many plane crash feelings/flashbacks in that moment!

Meredith's first patient coming back to the hospital was such an emotional high for me as it gave me so many MerDer and Mcdreamy feels! Then Jackson and April having a baby is such a great moment after what they've been through but quite sad that they aren't together. 

The episode where the hospital goes into code pink (missing child) was so tense! All the doors go into lock down which gives Ben no choice other than to do an emergency C-section in the middle of a corridor that results in the mum and baby dying. By the end of the episode it is revealed that the lock down finished and the lift opened (with Ben noticing) before he took the first cut, so there was no need for him to do the surgery. 

Meredith and Riggs are something that I cant like, purely just because I love Derek and I'm still not over his death! But I do find it super cute that Owen and Amelia got married, although I loved him with Cristina, I'm really enjoying him with Amelia and hope they will be good for each other.

April going into labour and Ben having to perform an emergency C-section at Meredith's house was a story line that I had heard about and was so excited to see, but at the time I didn't know about Ben's previous C-section and watching it this time knowing what had happened made everything so nerve wracking but luckily April and the baby survived. I just hope that Jackson and April get back together, like the amount of love in Jackson's face throughout everything that happened to April this episode just gives me so much hope!

So I hope you enjoyed this post, and well done for actually making it to the end...I know I went on for a while! But yes you should definitely watch Grey's Anatomy because it will be the highlight of your life!
