Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) is currently dying of Covid-19, and it's only in her sleep that she can see Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). In the promo for the upcoming episode, Meredith seems to be waking up from her long sleep, which means we won't get to see Derek anymore. Sigh, Derek's presence was the one thing that kept fans glued to their screens.

And now, what does that mean for her relationship with Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), who has been waiting for her to recover? Do the two have a future at all? Let's not forget that Cormac Hayes (Richard Flood) is in the mix too and could also be her potential love interest. Most fans assumed that Meredith would die at the end of Season 17 and would reunite with Derek in heaven. Well, will there even be a ‘Grey's Anatomy’ if Meredith dies?

‘Grey's Anatomy’ Season 17 Episode 6 Recap

The synopsis of the episode titled ‘No Time For Despair’ reads: "Grey Sloan Memorial faces new pressures as Seattle Pres is overloaded, and Grey Sloan Memorial is now on surge capacity protocol. Meanwhile, Owen and Amelia are faced with one of the most controversial surgeries of their careers."

What will happen to Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) and Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd)? Can he forgive her for cheating on him? Moreover, Jo Karev (Camilla Luddington) hasn't had it easy on 'Grey's Anatomy' (well then, who has?). Just after she recovered from numerous traumas that had shaped her childhood, her husband Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) left for his ex-wife Izzy (Katherine Heigl). The only storyline offered to her recently, apart from her crying over Alex, was a phoney one with Jackson. So, perhaps the oby-gyn profession might take her to new heights and off the show as well.

What to expect when the ABC show returns?

The last episode will end with a major cliffhanger and leave one too many questions hanging in the air. Fans are already worried about what to expect. "I don’t want the episodes to start because then it’s time for the winter break and I can’t go all these weeks without them. I’ll miss them so much," one fan said and another posted, "When #GreysAnatomy comes back after the winter break, I truly hope they're done with the COVID storylines. I just can't anymore with these storylines."

One added, "So will lexie and mark be on the beach or will I have to wait till after their winter break?" Another posted, "Remember how the first episode started? Meredith at the beach and we thought it was just a dream.. in the end, there she was again... We only saw a brief image of her at the beach at the beginning now... She's going back there in the end..."
