It’s hard to imagine a group of people with more bad luck than the “Grey’s Anatomy” doctors of Seattle Grace. Two years ago, there was a shooting inside of the hospital that ended up changing the lives of everyone forever — and now, a plane crash is threatening to do the same exact thing.
In the first preview for Thursday night’s season finale “Flight,” you can see how a plane stuffed full of surgeons suddenly throws the doctors into a “Lost”-esque situation, and Meredith and Cristina (who both obviously survive) are each seen looking for survivors. The person seemingly at the most risk at the moment is Derek, who Cristina claims was “sucked out the side” at some point while the plane was going down.
Show executive producer Shonda Rhimes has already said that at least one person will not survive the crash, and if you are looking for possible candidates for survival remember this — a number of the show’s original cast members (including Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, and James Pickens Jr.) all recently inked contracts that will keep them with the show until the end of season 10 — which could feasibly be the last season for the ABC flagship drama.
Do you ever worry that these doctors are forced to be put through too much in terms of tragedy, and who do you think is at the most risk based on the preview below?
