Grey's Anatomy Recap: Is MerLuca Doomed?

by at .

Meredith and DeLuca are still in the early stages of their relationship. 

As with all 'Ships on Grey's Anatomy, there's always some drama thrown in for good measure. 

Thursday's episode of the ABC hit kicked off with DeLuca's father, Vincenzo pitching his project to Alex. 

MerLuca's First Fight

The project was all about him creating an external sac that premature babies could be transferred to in order to develop until they're full term. 

It was pretty crazy stuff, but he also revealed that he had great success when he trialed the procedure on animals. 

So, what was holding Alex back from approving the surgery? 

Vincenzo's relationship with DeLuca was strained. Hell, DeLuca did not want to be anywhere near his father. 

Meredith Studies a New Surgery

Meredith was under the impression that Vicenzo was suffering from an undiagnosed medical illness thanks to Carina who threw her father well and truly under the bus. 

Vincenzo asked DeLuca to join him on the surgery, promising that it would help put his career "on the map."

Meredith was quick to veto the whole thing because she was concerned that Vincenzo having an undiagnosed medical condition would scupper things if he got to work with human patients.

Meredith Celebrates the Dead

DeLuca pressed on without getting the go-ahead from Meredith, and it looks like we're in for one of these crazy moments in which couples are put on the line.  

Meredith made some valid points, and the hospital is going to be liable if his undisclosed mental illness killed or harmed a patient, well, that means there's going to be a media storm at the hospital. 

How far will Meredith go to shut the whole thing down? 

We bet she's going to go the full way, and it's going to create some big complications in her relationship. 

Stuck in an Elevator

Elsewhere, Maggie got 15 minutes of fame thanks to some name-dropping. 

By that, we mean the surgeon went on a podcast and revealed that she was the daughter of Ellis Grey. 

This immediately changed the scope of the conversation, and the hosts failed to ask about anything she had done for herself. 

It was harrowing for her, but she bit back by revealing that Ellis had an affair with Richard, and that's how she was born. 

Instead, it created the media storm you would expect in this day and age. 

Is Webber Drinking?

“It’s not a part of my story that I’m particularly proud of,” Richard told his daughter, confirming that he was unhappy about the way she was brought into the world. 

He later told his daughter that he was ecstatic she existed, but he struggled with the whole scandal part of it.
