Grey's Anatomy 7.22 "Unaccompanied Minor" Review

Wowee! There was a whole lot of everything in last night’s season finale of Grey’s Anatomy.

There wasn’t a huge tragedy which put our favorite surgeons in danger, though there was a major accident (more on the later) but this episode was certainly an emotional rollercoaster if there ever was one.

greys anatomyMeredith & Derek: The episode began with their adoption counselor visiting the site of their future home. Shortly thereafter, the aftermath of Alex’s drunken confession that Meredith messed with the Alzheimer’s trial goes down. With hope that the trial can still remain blind if she withholds the information, Meredith keeps her mouth shut. As the Chief and Derek badger and berate Meredith, Alex writes down what he saw her do. With the information in hand, the Chief figures out what she did was for Adele. Realizing the pressure he put them (Meredith and Derek) under, he takes some responsibility for her actions and only suspends her. For Derek, this isn’t good enough. In his words "I don’t know how to raise a child with someone who doesn’t think the world has right or wrong." As he’s avoiding her calls and sleeping in their not built house, they’ve been granted custody of baby Zola. Meredith ends this season alone in her house with her new baby and Cristina on the couch. I may be optimistic but I think these two will make it through this. They’ve been through far too much to let it permanently tear them apart. Read More...
