Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 10: How did Mark and Lexie end up together? Fans ship 'Slexie' forever
Lexie also gives Meredith some important advice on how to handle the pandemic and says being alive in a body is the most joyful thing
It is like Christmas has come early for 'Grey's Anatomy' fans who already couldn't believe their luck that Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) was returning to the show. Fans, of course, had hoped that Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) would be joining her on the beach, but didn't expect that they would get so lucky and get Slexie instead. That's Mark and Lexie, in case you needed a refresher course. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) asks Mark "are both of you together", to which Mark replies, "on your beach it seems that we are". Mark also importantly tells Meredith in his classic style that it's too early kid, referring to the fact that it is too early for Meredith to come here.
Meredith says she doesn't know how to get back. She asked Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) but he wouldn't tell her. Mark says Derek couldn't help her as it is up to Meredith herself. He tells Meredith the sand isn't real. She says she wishes everyone would stop telling her that. Meredith then watches Mark and Lexie running around carefree on the beach and she says she likes it here.
Fans obviously couldn't control the excitement saying, "Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey ending up together in heaven is everything #GreysAnatomy." Another fan tweeted, "who knew almost 10 years later we'd get lexie grey and mark sloan back in our screens and endgame confirmed #GreysABC #greysanatomy." Fans were delighted to see Mark and Lexie so carefree playing on the beach. One fan said, "this is all i ever wanted for them." One more said, "merder and slexie endgame in 2021, we’ve finally won #greysanatomy."
Considering that back in the real world, the doctors are contemplating taking Meredith off the ventilator, will Meredith be able to take Mark's advice and go back? But Mark isn't the only one who is giving Meredith advice. Lexie asks her what is Meredith's favorite thing about being alive right now. To this Meredith says she couldn't talk about that when people are dying because of a pandemic. Lexie says that makes no sense because being alive in a body is the most joyful thing.
We see Meredith finally talking to Mark and Lexie saying life is so full of pain. Mark asks what is the thing that causes the pain. Lexie says what caused your pain is the love you have and adds that everything changes when you're alive. Mark and Lexie say it's a waste of life resisting change. Meredith says that she misses both of them, to which they say that's also a waste of time because they are always next to her. The episode ends with Meredith off the ventilator.
