Fans thought that this was the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy', where there would be some light at the end of the tunnel. The trailer of Episode 11 showed that while Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) may have woken up, as Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr) ominously says, "Great news doesn’t matter… if she’s too weak to stay awake.” Fans were worried when they heard this.

One fan tweeted, "#GreysAnatomy ”good news don’t mean anything if she’s too weak to stay awake” excuse me ??"

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 11: Is Meredith actually awake? Fans hope it's a dream, wish for more MerDer

Another fan couldn't stand the emotional rollercoaster that Meredith's health has been, "“She’s too weak to stay awake” shut up richard let me be happy for 2 seconds #GreysAnatomy. "



The show has put viewers through quite a rough ride with Link proposing to Amelia after his parents come to visit. But the proposal brings up a whole host of other issues, including the fact that Amelia is struggling with her recovery and of late has been craving to get high. This doesn't stop Link however from trying to propose a second time. But fans found even the lack of perfect timing for a proposal adorable.

One fan tweeted, "Link always trying to propose at the worst times and Amelia shutting him down is somehow making my night?  #GreysAnatomy "



But between all the discussions about Amelia Shepherd's (Caterina Scorsone) recovery and whether Link (Chris Carmack) uses sleep to avoid intense conversations, fans weren't sure whether marriage is on the cards or not. Finally, Amelia and Link decide to put a pin in their marriage plans, until they are a little clearer about Amelia's recovery. But they do it in typical Amelia and Link style, with love and humor.

This may not be the happy ending Amelink fans wanted but it will do, especially since there's other good news. Meredith finally wakes up and the first thing she says is 'Im sorry' to Richard and he asks 'for what?'. She says that because she made him take the tough decision to put her on a ventilator. The next thing Meredith says is we need to talk about Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington). Fans are wondering what is so important that Meredith needs to talk about Wilson as soon as she wakes up.

One fan tweeted, "How did Meredith wake up and talk about jo instead of deluca though #greysanatomy #GreysxStation19 "



Another fan tweeted, "Meredith didnt ask about her kids or anything first? She goes straight to Jo?? Don’t get me wrong I love Mer & Jo’s friendship but like she still doesn’t even know about DeLuca and didn’t ask about her kids first?? #greysanatomy. "

Richard then reaches out to Jo and asks her if she's thinking about changing specialties. Jo is shocked that he knows. Richard offers to help guide her through the process. Now that we know that Meredith has often been listening even when it seems she was not, what will be her other concerns when she wakes up next.
