‘Grey’s Anatomy’ first look preview: Departures, Cristina, and Owen

Who is going to leave?

On Thursday night’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” we finally learned that everyone except for April ended up passing the boards — and with that, the job offers are going to all start pouring in from around the country.

This episode could actually end up being the most influential of the entire series (despite not even being the finale), and one of the sole reasons why is due to the implications it holds for all of the doctors. Meredith, Cristina, Alex, and Jackson all have offers waiting for them from around the country — meanwhile, Derek also has a prestigious position open for him that is causing him to think about his future. There are going to be arguments between couples — and even potentially one couple (in Cristina and Owen) who use this stressful situation as a means to hook up again for the first time since splitting.

While executive producer Shonda Rhimes is keeping the actual departures from the show a secret (possibly because she doesn’t even know who is leaving yet), we can promise that the season finale airing on May 17 will be the most intense one of the season. There is going to be yet another catastrophic event hitting some of our beloved characters, and not everyone is going to end up surviving it.

For now, though, let’s focus on what we are going to see next week. Who do you think is the most likely to leave Seattle Grace to pursue something elsewhere?
