'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 4: George O' Malley returns to visit Meredith, fans call it 'absolutely unreal'
Overjoyed fans are calling George's appearance 'the best thing to happen in 2020'
'Grey's Anatomy' is ready with sweet nostalgia and surprises despite the occasional anxiety. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was found unconscious in the parking lot of Grey-Sloane memorial. Turns out, she has Covid-19 and the doctors are busy rallying around her to ensure a speedy recovery. But does she really want to recover?
She has survived a plane crash, drowning, being beaten up by patients, almost being gunned down and a bomb blast. She has lost enough and more people in her life and now she's just tired of it all, as it appears. Her happy place is a limbo, where she sees her husband Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) at a beach. There wasn't enough wine in the world, to make fans recover from Derek's devastating death, all the way back in Season 11 and Meredith has struggled to move on without him. Derek's appearance came as a shock to fans because they were least expecting him as Dempsey was rumored to have exited the show on a bad note. The good news is, he is going to be there for most of the season. That also makes us wonder, whether this is the last and final season and if Meredith is going to die to reunite with Derek, putting all the speculation of her ending up with Cormac Hayes (Richard Flood) and Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) to rest.
But it's not just Derek, who has returned on the medical drama show. It's George! (TR Knight). He died tragically at the end of Season 5 after he was dragged by a truck for six blocks. He was a close friend of Meredith's and fans are over the moon after seeing him.
"IVE MISSED GEOGRE SO MHCN IM SO HAPPY IYS HIM #GreysAnatomy," a fan tweeted. " I freaking knew he was gonna show up again," another excited fan wrote. "George OMalley in the year 2020 best thing that's ever happened I think #greys #greysanatomy," a fan wrote. "Seeing George O'Malley on #GreysAnatomy in 2020 is absolutely unreal," a fan tweeted.
