'Grey's Anatomy' star Ellen Pompeo promises season 14 finale will be 'devastating'
Grey's Anatomy has failed to disappoint in its finales for each of its 13 seasons, and Ellen Pompeo has promised that season 14 will be no different.
Since it's airing in 2005, ABC's 'Grey's Anatomy' has gone from strength to strength for each of its 13 seasons, pulling in impressive numbers and ratings. Of course, those ratings have been helped by the show's propensity to deliver some absolutely heartwrenching and tearjerking finales for each of its seasons, and according to Ellen Pompeo, who plays the lead character of Meredith Grey, fans can expect just as devastating an ending for the current season.
You know it was classic Greys....devastating with a side of absurdity 💔💔💔 https://t.co/KwEexPHSD1— Ellen Pompeo (@EllenPompeo) 6 April 2018
Now in its 14th iteration, the show has had quite the turnover of characters, bar a few core ones that have been a mainstay for every single season. Pompey's tweet, which ominously claimed the season finale would be 'Classic Grey's...devastating with a side of absurdity' has fans fearing that more of the characters they have grown attached to over the years will now meet their inexplicable end.
After all, a gruesome ending would not be out of line for the show, considering how some of the more beloved characters have met their end in the seasons past. But the hope is that this time, instead, they are finally given their own 'happily ever after' by the writers.
It's been known for a while that Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew, who play Dr. Arizona Robbins and Dr. April Kepner respectively, will be leaving the show after the season. Capshaw has been a regular for nine seasons and Drew for eight, and fans are now feverishly concocting theories as to how they will be written off come the last episode.
According to the synopsis of episode 21, which is titled 'Bad Reputation' and is set to air on April 26, Dr. Robbins plans to spend more time with her daughter Sofia because she is having a hard time at her school, giving rise to a feeling that she might be moving to New York to be closer to her child. Fans have theorized that Kepner may leave for a fresh start after burning out at the highly-demanding and stressful environment at Seattle Grace.
Drew even shared a post on Instagram marking her last days on set which read: "Starting my last day on the hospital stages. (Not my final final day- I still have some location work to do). Feeling full of love and also sweetness and sadness. I love my family here with my whole heart."
CarterMatt predicts that Scott Speedman will return as Nick Mars and rekindle his storyline with Meredith and fans will hope that they get a glimpse of what Alex and Jo's wedding will look like. Theories only go so far, however, and the 24th and final episode, titled 'All of Me,' is set to hit the screens on May 17, concluding yet another thrilling season.
