‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9, episode 23 preview: Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith breaks down

Ellen PompeoIt wouldn’t be “Grey’s Anatomy” without some sort of crisis starting to build up before we reach the season finale, and Thursday night’s new episode is going to be the beginning of the end in that respect. We already know what the token “terrible event” that is set to transpire at the hospital which is the shocking storm that threatens the life of at least one of our main characters, but before we even get to that, Meredith is going to start to break down.

In the first promo below for the episode, we see Meredith stubbornly refusing to really give up any of her day-to-day responsibilities, even though she is clearly in need to help in her present state. After all, she is probably going to give birth to her child with Derek any day now, and we are caught firmly in a holding pattern waiting for it to happen.

In addition to Meredith’s struggle to stay afloat, there is relationship drama almost across the board. Cristina has to figure out whether or not she can push forward with a man (in Owen) who could someday resent her for not wanting to have children, Alex has to discover whether or not there is a hope for himself and Jo, and there is of course all of the Jackson / April drama to get through. Perhaps the most interesting story, though, for the time being is trying to figure out whether or not something is going to happen between Callie and Arizona. Thanks to Hilarie Burton’s character, it does at least look like there could be a cheating scandal on the horizon.
