Ellen Pompeo drops hints on Season 14 finale of 'Grey's Anatomy'
The finale of season 14 of 'Grey's Anatomy' is set to be showcased soon and Ellen Pompeo teases fans with her favorites from the series, and also a prospective hint for the end
If there's one thing that keeps 'Grey's Anatomy' fans hooked and clinging on to the show, it's the curiosity looming over which character will die next. Face it, creator Shonda Rhimes has been notoriously known for killing off the most beloved, popular characters from the show for the last 14 seasons and over 300 episodes.
But worry not, solace comes in the form of Ellen Pompeo aka the widely adored Meredith Grey from the show, who has finally offered some idea about what you can expect from this season's finale.
Speaking with SheKnows, the 48-year-old actress who recently became the highest paid actress in the industry, revealed much about the show, including the evolution of Shonda Rhimes, her personal favorite episode from the entire series and, of course, the one departed character from the show, who she wishes she could bring back.
The mother of three spilled that she believes Grey's is a 'show for the masses'. With reference to her favorite episode from the series, which happens to be 'The Becoming' (Season 4, Episode 14) aka the one about the two gay soldiers.
"I think the fact that we’re able to tell stories and show America that, yes, there are soldiers who are gay, yes, gay men exist, and yes, gay men can be soldiers, can fight for our country, can be brave and can also be gay," she shared with the outlet.
"And women, too. I’m super proud to be part of a show that promotes racial equality, includes the LGBT community, talks about transgender issues and tackles all these important things," she added.
As for the one character Ellen wishes she could bring back, taking a guess wouldn't be too hard for the fans. It's a clear obvious one. "Sandra Oh. I think she’s the finest, finest, finest actor there is," she answered, talking about the ever so sharp, witty and blunt character of Christina Yang, one of the only few to have actually received a happy ending in the show.
Speaking of happy endings, of course, that's not on the cards for every character on the show — be it Sloan and Lexie, or Denny, or George or even Derek Shepherd — whose death pretty much spilled every fan's guts out. So what's in store for this season? How not very happy is the finale going to be?
"You can’t miss it," says Ellen. "We’re gonna torture you a little bit first, but then if you want the happy ending, you have to watch the finale. Not that it’s such a happy ending, because those two characters [April Kepner, played by Sarah Drew, and Arizona Robbins, played by Jessica Capshaw] are leaving the show, but they’re going in kind of a happy way."
All's well that ends well, as they say; but still, with Shonda Rhimes' cutthroat tossing of characters, one can never tell. Here's hoping the finale won't be too unkind to the tear ducts!
