“There is a shooter in the hospital!”. Those are the words that echoed in my head after seeing all of the commercials for the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy on my Georgia satelite tv. I could not wait to watch the finale as every season the finale is better than the one before it. Through Izzy overcoming Cancer and George’s death, I could not believe that this finale could even possibly top the ones before it, well, it did.
Derrick had been shot by an angry husband whose wife had passed away in Seattle Grace Hospital. The man blamed Derrick for his wives death as well as blamed several others such as Meredith’s sister for pulling the plug for the life support system which she was on.
In the end of it all, Christina had to operate on Derreck to keep him alive all well the shooter held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her if she did not stop operating. They secretly pulled a wire on his vital monitor, which made it appear as though he was dead, which in turn made the shooter leave the room satisfied. Meredith however, did not know what they were doing and thought that Derrick had really died. This caused her to have a breakdown and a miscarry the baby that she was about to tell Derrick she was pregnant with, right before he was shot.
The chief of the hospital was able to talk the shooter down and convince him to kill himself, before the SWAT team could come in and haul him off to jail for the rest of his life.
