Grey’s Anatomy Recap: Did MerLuca Hook Up?

There was a lot up in the air as Grey’s Anatomy made its triumphant return to the air on Thursday night. 

While the hospital was plunged into darkness, lives were on the line, but fans only had one thing on their minds:

MerLuca!

Meredith and DeLuca were trapped inside an elevator mere moments after the latter opened up about his strong feelings for the former. 

If fans thought they were in for one of the show’s steamy hookups, then they were sorely mistaken. 

Meredith was too concerned about Cece’s wellbeing. As you will recall, Meredith had a heart for Cece and was gearing up to harvest it to save the love guru. 

That was moments before the storm plunged the hospital into darkness. Desperate to prove his he was worthy of being her man, DeLuca pressed on with finding a way to escape. 

Before the elevator actually got moving, DeLuca persisted to get his point across to Meredith. He thought she was excellent, and he would be very interested in getting between the sheets with her. 

Grey was grinning from ear-to-ear, but she was not ready to get hot and heavy in an elevator.

Things took a turn when DeLuca revealed that his father was a famous surgeon in Italy. However, he operated on seven patients during a manic phase and saved four. 

He was tried but acquitted because he had money and connections. In a genuinely romantic moment, Mer asked her beau to speak to her in Italian. 

Here’s the translated version of what he said:

“When you finally let me kiss you, and you will let me kiss you, I won’t ever stop.�

Mer understood every single word he said, and the pair got close. Then the freaking door opened. 

As for Cece, she started the hour in a bad way. Her vitals were dropping, and it was not looking good. 

“My old heart is jealous of my new one,� she told Maggie.

One of the new interns, Taryn, worried that Cece was about to pass away and there was no heart ready because it was trapped in another elevator. 

“I just think we’re gonna plummet, and Cece’s gonna die,� said Taryn to Bailey while in said elevator. 

On the outside, Jackson was going all out to save Cece and went as far as threatening the hospital’s building manager because he wanted in that elevator stat. 

When the manager did actually he help, he got his legs crushed by the doors of the elevator. 

Cece continued to get closer to death and realized there was something amiss, so she chatted with Maggie about the surgeon’s love life. 

But the conversation was cut short when Cece flatlined. 

Meredith tried to save her life and was ecstatic there was a heartbeat. 

“We got a heartbeat,� Mer yelled. “Thank God — she told me she would haunt me.�

The next thing we knew, Mer was talking to Cece about her romantic interests, and the camera pulled back to reveal that Cece was dead. 

Looks like not everyone can win, you guys. 

elsewhere on this wild installment:

– Maggie wanted to break some more rules to tell Jackson about Catherine’s cancer and sulked around the hospital as others told her not to. 

– Bailey had an epiphany: She loved Ben and wanted to make everything right. She texted him before reaching out to Karev to ask for his help. 

– Amelia, Teddy, and Owen all took the baby news well, with Teddy agreeing to stay in Seattle because the child could have two parents. In the end, Amelia said she was giving Owen time to consider his options.

3. With Whom?!?

With whom
DeLuca? Chris Carmack’s new surgeon? Greg Germann’s Dr. Thomas Koracick? There are plenty of attractive options.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Trailer: Meet the Hot New Docs!

Grey’s Anatomy will be featuring quite a few changes on Season 15.

But at least one thing will remain the same:

The doctors at the center of this long-running series will NOT exactly be difficult on the eyes.

A pair of cases in point:

As previously reported, neither Sarah Drew nor Jessica Capshaw will reprise their roles (as April Kepner and Arizona Robbins, respectively) ths fall, but producers are looking to fill these holes with the newbies pictured above.

The official preview highlighted on this page shows actors Chris Carmack and Alex Landi strolling into the hospital as two handsome physicians, along with a female patient lying in bed.

“Oh, my God,” she gushes as they enter her room.

Speaking of bed, the concept of entering (sorry) and a woman expressing awe/satisfaction… it also looks like Meredith will be getting a new love interest on Season 15.

This is the main takeaway from the trailer for most fans.

At the conclusion of this trailer – which teases a two-part season premiere with “one jaw-dropping twist” – Ellen Pompe’s Meredith seems rather flustered around Dr. Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti).

Yes, she shot him down last season.

But this season? All we know is that the footage flashes to scenes of the two making out between the sheets.

Elsewhere, Kim Raver’s Teddy Altman appears, announcing she’s “11 weeks pregnant,” as Dr. Maggie Pierce (played by Kelly McCreary) looks at her in disbelief.

We can’t wait to see how this storyline develops.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 premieres on ABC on Thursday, September 27, at 8/7c.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Drew said the following about her unexpected departure:

“I was told that the show had too many characters. And that they needed to downsize because they couldn’t service all of the characters effectively…

“It was really hard to hear that.

“But [producer Krista Vernoff] had a lot of very complimentary things to say about the work that I had done – especially this past season – and that April was going to have her happy ending.”

We’ll miss April for sure.

But we’re still psyched to find out what’s in store in Seattle on Season 15.

1. A Double Farewell

April slash zona
With Capshaw and Drew’s firing announced weeks ago, fans were prepared for the worst. This is Grey’s, after all, so everyone assumed the characters themselves would be terminated. Literally.

2. How Did April Leave?
