Gray’s Anatomy Season 16 Episode 13 Overview: Save the Final Dance for Me


Um, okay. Let’s do that.

When you’re an impatient particular person, then Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 Episode 13 in all probability drove you insane.

We nonetheless do not know the paternity of Amelia’s youngster, Alex’s whereabouts, McWidow’s precise goal, which model of Tom, Jackson, and Owen we’ll get from every installment when Merluca determined they had been a factor once more, and what’s ailing Suzanne.

And people are off the highest of the top. However the hour did introduce us to new physician Lauren Riley; solely the third deaf physician portrayed on tv, and type of wrapped up the Pac-North storyline.

It additionally had the cutest senior-aged couple reminding us what love appears like earlier than Valentine’s Day.

And Bailey may think about taking in that 17-year-old orphan, whose origin story was on Station 19 Season 3 Episode 4.

On that word, it is the most well-liked criticism in regards to the season, particularly now that Station 19 has began its new season airing earlier than Gray’s Anatomy.

It is troublesome for Gray’s followers who do not watch Station 19 and resent them pressuring viewers to test it out if they’ve a shot understanding what within the bloody hell is going on on Gray’s Anatomy.

It is also robust for these of us Gray’s followers who do watch Station 19, however not reside. From the promos, one gleans that Joey performed a outstanding function of their installment, however with out watching it forward of Gray’s, there is no context.

Affected person: You do not look sufficiently old to be a health care provider.
Levi: Properly, generally I do not really feel sufficiently old to be a health care provider.

With out the context, it was puzzling. You battle to play catch up, and your attachment is not as pronounced as it might be when you knew what the satan was occurring.

Sadly, you possibly can’t assist however evaluate this franchise to the Dick Wolf franchises.

I say Dick Wolf as a substitute of Chicago due to his whole franchise’s means to tug off crossovers throughout the board. Law & Order SVU has had crossovers with Chicago PD, and FBI and its spinoff have pulled off a sucessful crossover too.

For it to work right here, they should have a set variety of precise crossovers which were introduced so that folks know they’re coming.

In these, they’ll have crossover storylines connecting circumstances, after which if they’ve a member or two from every franchise make a cameo storyline allowing in every installment, then so be it.

It labored when Levi ran into Ripley on the flower store, or Captain Herrera checks in with Bailey for an appointment. Hell, even any of them mingling and rehashing their day at Joe’s or another watering gap would do the trick.

Not everybody would really like this, nevertheless it’s one of the best answer for what they’re attempting to do.

Joey appeared like a candy child, and the total image will make sense after a Station 19 catch up. It was touching how Bailey related with him and the way moved she was by his scenario.

I am not going to sit down by hopeless whereas my household will get cut up aside once more.


Jo was capable of present some perception and converse on behalf of her expertise as a foster child and Alex’s too. She identified how bleak the probabilities are for an older teenager getting adopted or taken in.

Most of them find yourself ageing out of the system. In a brief interval, Bailey has develop into hooked up to this teen. The extra time she spent with him, the extra probably it appears she’ll wish to give him a house.

Of all of the storylines this sequence can rehash, taking in a teen in want of a household is a welcomed one. The Betty/Amelia storyline was a delight.

Will it imply Bailey and Ben will assume duty for less than Joey or the siblings of whom he takes care?

I get the impression it’s going to be him alone, but when one thing stunning can come out of Benley’s tragic miscarriage, the couple turning into adoptive mother and father serves the aim.

The present’s narrative is beginning to tackle Alex’s absence. Originally of the hour, it appeared like he would preserve phoning it in to everybody however Jo and Meredith.

It is just one odd factor in a number of them for this case. It is a robust scenario, and I stay doubtful that the present can pull off a passable story, given the circumstances.

Because it stands, Alex is having a tough time away together with his mom, and he wants area from Jo. Jo seems like he is taking a break as some type of latent retaliation for her psychological facility keep.

Are we to grasp that Alex, who had a historical past of different individuals abandoning him may do the identical to his spouse?

Sadly, I can not consider a approach they’ll write Alex’s abrupt departure (bar killing him off) that does not malign his character and years of progress.

I suppose Koracick gave at the least one particular person their job.


They usually ended the Pac-North saga with Catherine shopping for them out and wanting everybody again at GSM. They could not have everybody separated for too lengthy, however the haphazard approach this was pieced collectively and the kumbaya ending was one thing else.

The board members remembered that they had energy and pull, so that they, led by a family-oriented Bailey, who received over her affordable however important function in everybody being separated, put stress on Tom.

Tom being a dick, and many of the others hating him is such a drained narrative. He deserves to be over Teddy proper now, nevertheless it sucks that he goes too far with a few of his conduct. He is far and wide.

At the very least Amelia took a second to acknowledge Tom’s harm and why he is semi-entitled to behave as he does.

Don’t fret, I am going to have you ever out in time in your marriage ceremony. When is it once more?


One way or the other, he was presupposed to do away with some individuals, however as a substitute, we have now everybody again and dealing at GSM. We even have Alex and Hayes (though, it is solely McWidow now) as co-chiefs of Pediatrics.

And Maggie went from being rehired to work below Teddy, which is bullcrap, to now co-chief of Cardio, which can be bull.

It is like everybody received a sticker and a trophy.

Solely one in all them is a millennial, so the place does that notion come from once more?

Catherine was nonetheless exerting her authority over Richard from Paris, and he is feeling the stress. Nonetheless, his annoyance is complicated. Why is he performing like he is harm about their marriage ending when he was the one who instructed it?

And whereas we’re on relationships when did MerLuca develop into a factor once more?

Did anybody else discover it hysterical that she principally has Hayes to open up to about all of the grownup stuff and parenting issues and he or she has DeLuca for love and sexytimes.

It is like she has two halves of 1 boyfriend.

You lied to me.


DeLuca did not have the time to obsess over what Mer’s connection to Hayes is, due to his funding in Suzanne’s case.

It is among the best medical circumstances they’ve had in a while, and if Suzanne dies, a few of us will wish to riot, myself included.

She’s so robust, and he or she’s such an excellent mother. All you need is for them to determine what the heck is occurring along with her and for her to make it.

DeLuca deceiving Lauren was flawed, nevertheless it was good of him to herald a diagnostician. They need to have one there on a regular basis.

You will have realized that my ears do not work, however I’ve discovered to hear with my complete physique. When the drugs is gone, the illness will begin speaking.


Dr. Riley is a breath of recent air and a complete badass. We have solely had her for one installment, and I already adore her.

She’s in all probability not going to be essentially the most likable because the case progresses, however you possibly can inform she’s good at what she does. She’s assured and succesful, and he or she calls for your consideration and respect due to how she carries herself.

It was hilarious when she all however shooed DeLuca out of the way in which with a flick of her hand.

She does not let her being deaf restrict her or maintain her again; as a substitute, she factors out that it provides her some benefit when diagnosing individuals.

We’re a household, you’ve got joined our household, and a few of us have begrudgingly accepted you, however you don’t get to rule this household with an iron-fist.


Her choice to take Suzanne off of all of the meds, which can make her sicker, is dangerous as hell. Nonetheless, it is sensible. They can not unravel what’s occurring if a cocktail of medicine clouds their image.

Maggie is not too massive on taking dangers, so her response was comprehensible. However I actually hope Dr. Riley is correct.

And Amelia’s actions had been flawed. What does she need from Hyperlink proper now?

It is like she was banking on him being the good man he’s identified to be, and he or she hoped he would put his combined emotions apart and let his love for her and her wants prevail.

Owen: How do you do this?
Amelia: Do what?
Owen: Really feel everybody’s ache the entire time. It have to be exhausting.
Amelia: It truly is.

Hyperlink must be bored with doing that. It is one thing everybody takes without any consideration, and it isn’t honest. Jo is protecting of her good friend, and he or she was taking issues out on Amelia, however she wasn’t flawed in what she stated.

Amelia needs to respect Hyperlink’s emotions, however she additionally wants them to work in her favor. And he or she’s fearful of shedding him.

So now it is like she needs to remain suspended in time. So long as they do not know the outcomes, she might be pleased with the person she loves and vice versa.

I get it, nevertheless it’s as soon as once more not honest to Hyperlink. She’s afraid that he’ll do to her what she did to Owen when she came upon about Teddy.

And Hyperlink’s issues about her connection to Owen are legitimate. They at all times have intimacy, and it is messy as hell. It nonetheless felt like sparks between them when she rested on his shoulder after he complimented her on her compassion and empathy.

Irene: You are a health care provider, sweetheart. A physician is not presupposed to cry.
Levi: Oh, it is allergic reactions.

Are there any {couples} on this sequence who’re allowed to be completely happy? Hyperlink and Amelia ought to’ve been it.

Levi and Nico might as effectively throw within the towel.

The issue with Nico is that we do not know a lot about him, however once they do give him traces and moments, he is normally an ass.

He provides you whiplash. He was such a supportive boyfriend when Levi was sick at residence and all through the funeral course of. Nonetheless, he is irritated that his boyfriend remains to be residing him, and he cannot cover it.

Levi received so emotional taking good care of Irene. He even organized for her to bounce along with her husband within the sweetest and most emotional scene of the hour.

He realized he did not have a love like that, although. He loves Nico, nevertheless it’s not that sort of as soon as in a lifetime love.

Typically you must settle for that your past love will not at all times be the love of your life. And possibly it is time for Levi to maneuver on.
