Moving on after a traumatic event is always difficult, but Meredith, April, and Teddy tried to do just that on Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 17.

Meredith’s New Love Interest

If you watch Grey’s Anatomy online, you will already know that Meredith has struggled to move on since Derek’s death on Grey’s Anatomy Season 11

She did have a connection with Riggs, but all of that fell apart when Megan Hunt returned from the dead. The moment Meredith started chatting with Dr. Mars, it was clear she was going to be saving his life for much of the hour. 

They had a lot of chemistry and were each trying to find out everything about the other. It was cute. In any case, they are family oriented and have no baggage, so that’s always a positive. 

But Meredith worried because Dr. Mars had a kidney transplant and it seemed like his body was rejecting it. He told Mer a tale about how his mother died while waiting on a heart. 

When the results came back inconclusive, Meredith realized there was a tumor in an artery, and she set out to fix it. Dr. Mars thought he was dying, and urged Meredith to tell his niece how to get the deed to the house.

He pulled through, but Meredith then recognized the fact that he worked and lived in Minnesota. Yes, there’s no way Meredith is ever going to get a happy ending at this rate. 

However, she decided it was time to move on from everything that happened and that she could love again. 

April Find Peace In an Unlikely Way

When the episode kicked off, April was passed out in a bar and being kicked out by one of the workers. How far was she going to fall before someone stepped in to help her?

At the hospital, April was shocked when a rabbi showed up and found out that his skin was separating from itself. It turned out the reaction was linked to Bailey prescribing antibiotics to him three times as opposed to going through with surgery.

Bailey worried because she felt she was the one to blame for it, and April agreed. April dropped Bailey like a hot potato and Jackson had to pick up the pieces.

In one of the series’ most emotional scenes yet, Eli passed away as April pretended to be his wife, Elyse to give him comfort in his final few moments. 

Is There Hope for Teddy and Owen?

Owen surprised Teddy in Germany, and the pair wasted no time in making up for lost time. They had sex, scoffed comfort food and had the biggest argument yet. 

Owen was all about moving on with Teddy, but she was skeptical about his intentions. This only got worse when she realized he was sleeping with Amelia the day before, and she decided they were not right for each other.

She kicked Owen out of her house and told them that whatever was going on with them was over and that they had no future.
