For the entirety of this season, one of the rules that the writers have established is pretty simple: If you make physical contact with someone dead on the beach, you’re gone. We saw DeLuca embrace his mother and that was it. Now, Meredith is getting closer than ever to Derek!

At the tail end of the promo, you see Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey’s characters standing about as close together as two characters can stand, and obviously it’s a worrisome sign. She’s exhausted, and doesn’t quite know if she can make it back to the other side. In the real world, meanwhile, Richard is befuddled. He doesn’t quite understand why Meredith isn’t waking up again given that there were signs she was doing better. This story, as frustrating as it may be at times, is trying to confront a certain reality about the virus: It can be unpredictable. It can be devastating, and we can only hope Meredith eventually finds her way to the other side.
We know that there’s a lot going on with the characters at the hospital in this episode, as well, but with a promo like this, it’s clear where everyone’s focus is going to be entering it. We just want Meredith in good spirits and doing better by the end of the season. We all need that as the light at the end of the tunnel here.
