'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 17: Will Amelia and Link marry now that the Magston wedding is off?
Dr Owen Hunt also proposes to Dr Teddy Altman and it did not end well
By this point, most of us have got used to the idea of a low-key Covid wedding, but it seems that Dr Maggie Pierce's (Kelly McCreary) dad and Dr Winston Ndugu's (Anthony Hill) grandmother aren't having any of that. They object to Maggie and Winston's reason not because they don't think Maggie and Winston aren't suited, quite the opposite.
They feel such a match should be celebrated in style, in a post Covid world. Just like that the Magston wedding is delayed and Maggie can only say 'bottoms up' and drink some champagne to acknowledge the turn of events. It wasn't the dramatic objection that fans were expecting, but the finale episode of Season 17 of 'Grey's Anatomy' had plenty more drama in store.
While Maggie and Winston's wedding wasn't called off because of any relationship reservations, Dr Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) is having plenty of relationship reservations about Link (Chris Carmack), who has agreed to foster Luna just on paper to help his best friend Dr Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) to be able to be Luna's foster mother. It's a move however that doesn't sit well with Amelia, who starts to find her addiction recovery slipping as she feels pressured by Link to get married and have another child. Fans were already starting to get anxious. One fan tweeted, "I SWEAR TO GOD IF AMELINK BREAKS UP #GreysAnatomy"
Another fan concurred, "if Amelink is about to break up i will never believe in love #GreysAnatomy." Link has no idea that Amelia has so many doubts about their relationship and is planning a proposal with Jo's help. However, his proposal keeps getting interrupted by a number of occurrences including Dr Owen Hunt's (Kevin McKidd) proposal to Dr Teddy Altman (Kim Raver). Fans were not happy with the interruption. One fan tweeted, "Owen and Teddy really had to ruin Links moment like that, we don’t even like them. #GreysAnatomy." Another fan tweeted, "Here goes Owen & Teddy always ruining somethings #GreysAnatomy."
While her sisters' relationships may be full of drama on this episode, Dr Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) is taking things nice and slow with Dr Cormac Hayes (Richard Flood) a wise move, since Meredith still seems to be suffering the after-effects of Covid. Fans are loving that this romance seems to be brewing though. One fan tweeted, "Can make this couple real for the season 18 #GreysAnatomy."
Fans may have got a bit of a jolt when they saw Meredith back on the beach again, but this time it was for a purely happy reason, as we see that Maggie and Winston's wedding is now taking place on the beach and it is the wedding that we see that Maggie's dad and Winston's grandmother had hoped for. The fans' mood soon went from elation to heartbreak though, when Link asks Amelia to marry him at Maggie and Winston's wedding, but the expression on Amelia's face means she doesn't even have to say no. One fan tweeted, "How dare you Amelia #GreysAnatomy"
Another fan tweeted, "MAN YALL BROKE MY MAN LINKS HEART AFTER HE PROPOSED WITH 4 RINGS AND ALL THE KIDS??!!! HOW DARE YOU! #GreysAnatomy"
While we don't see this relationship ending amicably, one relationship which has is Jo and Jackson's as we see Jo move into Dr Jackson Avery's (Jesse Williams) old flat with Luna. It's not the only heartwarming moment after Link's heartbreak. We see that Meredith has got her strength back and is able to operate again and excitingly at the end of the episode we see her texting Dr Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh).
Considering the number of guest appearances in Season 17, can we expect a guest appearance from Sandra Oh in Season 18. For that fans will have to wait till the fall of 2021 for Season 18 of 'Grey's Anatomy'.
