'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16: Meredith Grey's trial to win back her license might not be an easy one
In the next episode of 'Grey's Anatomy', Meredith Grey awaits trial for committing insurance fraud.
The next episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' promises to be a crucial one. Knowing producer Shonda Rhimes, this is not going to be a straightforward and easy episode to watch. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) awaits judgment from the medical board, as she had earlier committed insurance fraud at the end of season 15. Of course, it was for a noble cause, because that's Meredith. She is known to take rash and impulsive decisions, for good reasons. Yet, in the words of her husband Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), she dives in without knowing how deep it is and who she is going to land on.
For the unversed, Meredith had committed the fraud to save a patient's life. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) had fired her along with Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) for being in the know. In the promo for the next episode, Meredith stands trial and her lawyer nervously tells her to "shut up", because Meredith has a habit of speaking and getting herself into trouble. Just a while back, Meredith had written an article on the failing healthcare in the US. Unfortunately, the outlet sensationalized her pitch, used a misleading headline that attacked Grey-Sloan memorial, leaving her reputation with Bailey in more jeopardy than it was before. Even when Meredith has the best of intentions, chaos follows.
In the promo, Alex seems to have rallied her old patients, who are willing to fight for their star surgeon as she has saved innumerable lives with her experiments and hard work. The question is, will Meredith Grey retain her medical license? If she does, she would be back in Grey-Sloan, most probably, hopefully repairing her relationship with Bailey. Meredith deserves to keep her medical license because all said and done, she is extremely good at her job and has saved so many lives. Yet, Shonda being Shonda, this will not be the end of the story, and Meredith might just have to face further consequences.
'Grey's Anatomy' airs on ABC on November 14.
