Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 12 Recap: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Who won the surgical competition? 

That was the big question on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 12, as the doctors inside Grey Sloan Memorial went out of their way to level the playing field and emerge with a win. 

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will know that April has been struggling to keep the faith after three of her patients died in one day. 

This has resulted in viewers getting to see a different side of the character, and it's obvious she does not care about the way people view her any longer. 

This new April has been sleeping with an intern, and even struggled to find a way to deal with the all of the doctors who showed up late to the big meeting. 

“Good God, I’ve created a monster,” Webber said as he realized the severity of what April was going through. Maybe he should have dealt with the competition on his own instead of delegating his tasks.

April was not the only one struggling with losing patients. Arizona's heart was also feeling heavy, and it sent her back to her ex-girlfriend, Carina DeLuca. 

Arizona wanted to find a way to reduce mothers dying during and after childbirth, and given Carina's experience, she asked her to partner with her for the contest. 

Carina accepted, and the two women wound up making out later in the episode. They are a breath of fresh air. 

Then there was Bailey, who was still coming to terms with her ordeal at the hands of downright terrible doctors on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11

While she was under strict orders to rest up, she tasked Levi with bringing her things from the hospital to conduct a study of her own. 

However, the intern was not allowed to tell anybody about it because Ben and everyone in the hospital wanted her to recuperate following her ordeal. 

“What happens here, stays here. No one needs to know what we do in this room,” Bailey said to Levi. 

The intern thought Miranda was coming on to him and you could tell he felt strange about everything. Yeah, keep dreaming, Levi. 

Finally, Jo Wilson was feeling happy because she could enter the competition with Meredith and not worry about her name being featured in the press.

This was a big contrast from earlier in the season when Meredith had to keep Jo's name and picture out of the paper because she was living in fear that Paul was going to return. 

Thankfully, Paul is gone, and he will never harm her again. 

Okay, Grey's Anatomy Fanatics! What did you think of the latest episode?

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11 Recap: (Don’t Fear) the Reaper

Miranda Bailey is the glue that keeps all of the characters together on Grey's Anatomy. 

During Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11, the character found herself at death's door multiple times. 

When the episode got underway, all was right in the world of Miranda. She was dropping her kid off at school, driving to work with Ben, and she was still very much against Ben's new job. 

ICYMI: Ben is heading to the new Grey's Anatomy spinoff, Station 19. Thus, he will be a firefighter in the original series. 

Miranda has struggled with this because she is worried that he goes to work and does not come home. It makes sense, right?

Just when Ben started talking about his day, Miranda checked out and ordered Ben to let her out of the vehicle. 

It was bizarre, but we quickly found out the exact reason for her behavior. She made her way to another hospital with symptoms of a heart attack. 

Maggie Saves Bailey on Grey's Anatomy

If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will already know that Bailey is one of the best in her field, so she knew what she was was right.

Nobody seemed to want to agree that she was taking a heart attack and kept ushering her out of the way. 

Then, Dr. Maxwell appeared and wanted to rule it as a mental issue as opposed to a physical issue and ordered a psychiatrist. 

Bailey then decided enough was enough and told Maggie to visit her because she needed help. 

Maggie arrived, along with Richard who knew there was something wrong because Bailey had never taken a day off. 

Fresh off saving the life of the patient next to her, Bailey collapsed. This was confirmation enough for Dr. Maxwell.

After the blockage in her artery was dealt with, Bailey's pressure started dropping, and it emerged that the deluded Dr. Maxwell had failed to order some follow-up treatment. 

Maggie had had enough and demanded to be allowed to perform the surgery. Maxwell agreed because what else could he do?

Bailey realized it was time to let Ben in and she got Maggie to call him. Ben made a run straight to the hospital. 

Bailey survived her ordeal, and in the aftermath, Ben said he had quit his new job. Bailey admitted that her stance had changed on it. 

Life is too precious to waste doing anything less than what makes us happy,” she said to her lover. 

Peppered throughout the hour were flashbacks of Bailey growing up and the struggle she faced moving out of her home. 

Her mother was always worried about Bailey getting in trouble, and that was because her sister died at just two months old. 

It was a poignant episode that was great at educating the audience about heart attacks.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 10 Recap: Personal Jesus

Wait a minute!

Who would have thought that Grey's Anatomy would still be throwing crazy twists our way after fourteen years on the air?

Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 10 was filled with enough twists to last a whole season. 

We picked up in the immediate aftermath of Paul Stadler being brought into the hospital after an alleged hit and run. 

Jo and Alex were pleading innocence to Meredith who was floating the idea of them both fleeing to Canada in case they were arrested. 

The surprising thing about it was that Jenny even thought Jo was the one to do it, and that set off alarm bells for everyone. 

Paul's condition, however, gave Jo and Jenny time to compare notes on the abuse they encountered at the hands of him.

It gave Jenny the courage to confront a bedridden Paul who lashed out at her in front of Jo and Meredith. 

When he tried to get up from his bed to attack Jenny, he tripped and smacked his head on the bottom of the bed. 

This rendered him brain-dead, and Jo was the one who got to decide to pull the plug on him, and his organs were donated for the greater good. 

The moment Jo learned she got to be the one to pull the plug, she burst into laughter. It was poignant. She got to take down her abuser and no longer had to live in fear.

Meredith later confirmed that a drunk driver knocked Paul down so nobody had to make their way to Canada. 

April was struggling to keep the faith after her patient, Eric died. The kid was shot by a cop while he tried to enter his own home. 

Jackson backed April up several times as the police tried to get a statement from the kid before everything went South. 

Things for April were far from over. Ruby, the woman Matthew moved on with after April left him at the altar a few seasons back, was in the hospital.

April helped deliver her baby, but the woman's organs started failing. Ruby passed away, and Matthew was left all alone with the new child. 

Earlier in the episode, he was talking about how much he loved her and how April leaving him was a blessing in disguise. April made her way to the bar. 

That's when the new intern, Vik got close to her and, well, we're sure you know what happened next. 

Will April be able to find her faith or has losing three people in one day ruined it for her?

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 9 Recap: 1-800-799-7233

Paul Stadler was back on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 9, and all he wanted to do was cause trouble for his wife, Jo. 

When the episode got underway, Jo was face-to-face with Paul, and he was boasting about how he was engaged, and for him to be married, he needed to divorce Jo. 

Camilla Luddington for ABC

As if that was not bad enough, he had his new wife-to-be with him at the hospital. He played the good guy and wasted no time in painting Jo as the villain to all of her friends. 

With the hospital still messed up because of the hack, he pitched in, and this made Jo's day go from bad to worse. Paul acted like the long-suffering husband who was shocked by his wife running off with his money. 

Meredith orchestrated the divorce proceedings by setting up a meeting with Jo and Paul. Paul told Meredith to leave the room, and she declined and then went one step further by saying that she would be the one to deal with the papers. 

As Paul was leaving, Jo yelled that he was a "monster" and that his day will come. Paul left with a huge grin on his face, but Jo wanted to try to get through to Jenny. 

Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy Season 14

Arizona asked Paul for information about how he does procedures, but this was all a ruse to let Jo get to Jenny. Jo recounted the times he attacked her in places that nobody could see. 

Jenny was horrified and initially called Jo crazy, but Jo passed on her phone number and told her that if she ever wants out of the relationship to call her, and Jenny seemed happy to call if things got gnarly. 

Then, in a dramatic twist, Paul showed back up with Jenny and went crazy at Jo, calling her a liar because of what she said. He then said he would hold on to Jo's cell phone number so he knew where to find her. 

Just as she Jo realized she was back to square one, Paul was brought in after being involved in a hit and run. But who knocked him down? Meredith seemed to think it was Jo or Alex, but they both stared at her with blank faces. 

Matthew Morrison on  Grey's Anatomy

Elsewhere, Bailey was shocked when one of the interns helped stop the hack without Jackson forking out $20 million. He revealed to the shocked doctor that he once hacked the DMV's system because they would not change his gender on his license. 

“I’m a proud trans man,” he revealed.

Then there was Maggie and Jackson who got closer and closer as the hour progressed. Ultimately, Maggie said they could not become a thing because his mother was dating her father and a whole other load of complications.

Ellen Pompeo Basically Tells Patrick Dempsey to Suck It

Ellen Pompeo is having a moment.

Ellen Pompeo has actually been having a whole bunch of moments over a whole bunch of years... and she's here to remind you about them.

The veteran actress has given a very revealing interview to The Hollywood Reporter in which she delves into a number of issues, from sexism ... to her future on Grey's Anatomy... to her opinion of Patrick Dempsey.

And let's just tease the final point with this:

Pompeo does not appear to think very highly of her former co-star.

For starters, Pompeo said Dempsey's decision to leave the series in 2015 was a "defining" moment for her in terms of contract negotiations.

We'll let her explain why:

"[ABC] could always use him as leverage against me - ‘We don’t need you; we have Patrick’ - which they did for years," she explains, holding nothing back and adding:

"I don’t know if they also did that to him, because he and I never discussed our deals. There were many times where I reached out about joining together to negotiate, but he was never interested in that.

"At one point, I asked for $5,000 more than him just on principle, because the show is Grey’s Anatomy and I’m Meredith Grey.

"They wouldn’t give it to me. And I could have walked away, so why didn’t I? It’s my show; I’m the number one. I’m sure I felt what a lot of these other actresses feel:

"Why should I walk away from a great part because of a guy? You feel conflicted but then you figure, “I’m not going to let a guy drive me out of my own house.'"

Ellen Pompeo on a Red Carpet

Pretty interesting, huh?

It doesn't sound like Dempsey was interesting in joining forces with his long-time colleague.

This is in opposition, let's say, to back in the day when the entire cast of Friends refused to film unless they also received the same pay raise.

Dempsey's Derek Shepherd was eventually written off the show... but it wasn't long until Martin Henderson was added to the cast as a new love interest.

"So, what does it look like when he leaves the show?" Pompeo asks, elaborating as follows:

"First, it looks like a ratings spike, and I had a nice chuckle about that. But the truth is, the ink wasn’t even dry on his exit papers before they rushed in a new guy.

"I was on vacation in Sicily, decompressing - it was a long working relationship and it was a tumultuous end and I needed a moment to just chill with some rosé - and they’re calling me, going, “What do you think of this guy?” “What do you think of this guy?”

"And they’re sending pictures.

"I was like, “Are you people f-cking nuts? Why do you feel that you have to replace this person?”

"I couldn’t believe how fast the studio and the network felt like they had to get a penis in there. We brought in Martin Henderson, but they didn’t love the storyline, so that ended."

Ellen Pompeo Thinks

Again: interesting stuff, huh?

Through all of the many cast changes on Grey's Anatomy, Pomeo remains.

And she isn't going anywhere any time soon:

The star just signed a new, two-year deal that will pay her approximately $20 million per year.

This pretty much guarantees Grey's Anatomy will stay on the air at least through Season 16.

To conclude her cover story with The Hollywood Reporter, Pompeo turned her attention to the #MeToo movement and the ongoing shift in Hollywood.

She's proud of everything going on at the moment and she hopes she can play a role in it.

"I don't believe the only solution is more women in power, because power corrupts," says Pompeo.

"It's not necessarily a man or a woman thing. But there should be more of us women in power, and not just on Shonda Rhimes' sets.

"Look, I only have a 12th-grade education and I wasn't a great student, but I've gotten an education here at Shondaland.

"And now my 8-year-old daughter gets to come here and see fierce females in charge. She loves to sit in the director's chair with the headphones on yelling "Action" and "Cut."

"She's growing up in an environment where she's completely comfortable with power.

"I don't know any other environment in Hollywood where I could provide that for her. Now I hope that changes … and soon."

T.R. Knight Out, Katherine Heigl Back on Grey’s Anatomy

Following the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, and the gossip that dominated the series all year long, the buzz was that either T.R. Knight or Katherine Heigl, or both, would be leaving the show at the conclusion of the drama's fifth year.

Well, it now appears that T.R.'s George O'Malley will move on into the light after his tragic bus accident, while Katherine's Izzie Stevens will beat brain cancer.

Knight is leaving the show for good, according to EW. Meanwhile, E! News reports that Heigl "will be back," though neither ABC or the star have commented.

BEST FRIENDS in real life and on TV, T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl have long been the center of Grey's Anatomy gossip. Looks like one's going and one's coming back.

Season Five's finale left Grey's Anatomy viewers wondering if Izzie, with cancer, would awake after flatlining, while George struggled to survive a bus crash.

The impression you got was that Izzie was ready to return to her life, while George was fine passing on. Looks like this turned out to be the correct conclusion.

Jessica Capshaw, who plays cute lesbian surgeon Arizona, has been signed as a full-time series regular for the upcoming sixth season, premiering in September.

Grey’s Anatomy Season Finale Questions, Reflections

In a word ... seriously!?

As Grey's Anatomy faded to white, Izzie stood in the elevator in her prom dress from Season Two, with George in his new Army uniform staring back at her. The presumed afterlife encounter was the last we will see of either ... until September, anyway.

After almost an entire year of off-screen and on-screen drama regarding the future of Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) and T.R. Knight (George O'Malley), their status remains ambiguous after last night's heart-stopping Grey's Anatomy finale.

Izzie was getting better, and George finally had a purpose, enlisting as an Army doctor. But then she coded at the end, while it a bus crash patient whose facial injuries made him unrecognizable turned out to be George. He crashed, as well.

Katherine Heigl as Izzie Stevens

Creator Shonda Rhimes was still coy in an interview this morning on the fate of Heigl and Knight. Here are some questions about the two beloved, likely-dead characters, and those who we know will be back, that linger as we await Season Six ...

  • Where does Dr. Bailey go from here?
  • Will Lexie and Mark move in together?
  • Are Cristina and Owen like, a couple now?
  • Will Jessica Capshaw (Arizona) be around next season?
  • As the baby bump becomes more and more visible, is Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy going to be written in, or will she go on leave?
  • Was the Meredith-Derek wedding - officiated by themselves, and with hastily written vows recited via post-it note - the real deal?
  • Will this be the most talked-about episode since the second season finale (2006), in which Izzie wore said prom dress as Denny passed away?
  • Is this ending the result of the producers' own ambiguity over whether George and Izzie will die - and/or the actors' willingness to come back?

What do you think? Was it outrageously bad? Are you exhausted in every way? Did you find the Grey's Anatomy season finale exhilarating?
