Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 Episode 17 Review: Someone Saved My Life Tonight

After a obscurity, melancholic season, the climax terminated on a lighter and happier note.

Of track, after those final instants of Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 17, we'd have to exclude Amelia and Link from that equation. The healthiest affinity remaining on the succession, ended with the two on totally different pages.

Man, it sucks.

Married Magston

It was another hour where they sped through the timeline, catching us up to current terms. It was a necessary misery, but hopefully, it'll be the last of that for a while. The term jumps and haziness of being a year behind stimulated things muddling throughout the season.

Maggie and Winston's wedding was a timeline marker for us, but even is of the view that we probably could've done without the pointless quirk of their parents objecting to the wedding.

It seemed silly and laughable that after Maggie flew them into town, and they wasted weeks quarantining for their quiet incident in the ground, their parents stood up in the middle of the ceremony to object.

The parents didn't want Maggie and Winston to get married during a pandemic without all of their loved ones, but they could've said that at the start.

It was a waste of time, money, and more to oblige them to postpone their wedding during it. Maggie deserved every last drop of the champagne she chugged after that display.

Blushing Bride

We found out that the two have been living together this whole time, though, and the government has months to nearly a year to contrive a bigger wedding with their family and friends at Meredith's extinction beach.

And the marry was beautiful. Maggie inspected perfectly elegant. It was sweet that Richard was there to officiate, and I hate that we didn't get to hear them recite their pledges and all of that, but they jump-start the broom and propelled a kickass wedding reception.

It was genuinely pleasing to see everyone having a good time and happy. It was jubilant, fun, and everyone dancing and chortling was a reprieve from all the darkness we permitted all season.

And that's why it was jarring and incongruous that all individuals left Maggie's wedding reception and drove to the hospital to stand at the nurse's station and praised Meredith for saving Gerlie.

Celebrating Mer's accomplishment

I imply, it isn't precisely me , no? I know I've griped about this for a long time now, but isn't the Meredith worship and ass-kissing thing the line does undue and preposterou ?!

Meredith didn't have the decency to stick around for her COVID clap-out ceremony, and she chose to sneak away, leaving all of her friends waiting around looking like idiots.

Are you telling me these same beings thought it was anything other than tacky to leave Maggie's wedding to stand around and applaud for Meredith all over again?

Call me a rancour purchaser, but I'll be damned if I'm leaving cake and guzzle to go clap for Meredith Grey, particularly after she ghosted me the last time.

At this rate, Meredith comes across as insufferable by the second for this alone.

It's difficult to stomach her new methodologies for running the residency program. She mounted right in and converted everything up, which included removing rounds. While some of her infer realized smell, strolling rounds are vital for a reason.

Bailey contended with her mentee not seeming to reputation the past and the course she and Richard did things before, and you could understand why it riled her so much.

Some of it is tradition, and Mer wasn't interested in any of that, but Mer also came in with a change propose and a sense that her programmes were the very best, and it spilled into how she undertook things with Gerlie.

Mer's coarse coming with Bailey, bringing up her losing her mother, and things of that nature when inducing her degrees felt insulting more than anything, and it scratched the wrong way.

And, of course, she never asked for that.

But Mer's focus on Gerlie was a way for the serial to touch on long-term COVID outcomes on all the persons who subsisted it. For many who recovered from serious cases, the fight isn't over.

Many face a host of other medical challenges, some irreparable, and we haven't begun to scratch the surface of that. Gerlie needed a doubled lung graft, but she wasn't someone who would've been considered a good applicant because of her experience with COVID and breathing with a ventilator for months.

It reached close to home for Meredith, who knows that she'll have some remaining aftermaths, very, and that she's luck compared to others. She wanted to point out that the fight to save COVID patients doesn't end when the virus is no longer in their system.

It's another Mer quest, and it comes from a personal place. And she and Teddy were successful with Gerlie. She's ahead of the game with her drive, and it's something she got to text with Cristina about later.

Meredith continues to find fulfillment and success in her vocation above anything else. We got some sweet, brief instants with her and the children, and "shes been" shared some time with Hayes.

It was a bit flirty, but it's hard to tell where the two of them could go if they head anywhere at all.

Teddy and Owen are headed down the aisle, which gives them right back to where they were before the end of Grey's Anatomy Season 16 Episode 21.

Owen Proposes to Teddy

They've "re just acting" like two lusty boys. Teddy's mild COVID only served as a temporary stop to their sexy times, but other than that, they're head over heels for one another again, somehow more than before.

It was outlandish that Owen and Teddy were even at Mer's house for Christmas, let alone Owen orchestrating fake snow in her backyard so that he could is prepared to Teddy.

I don't know why my deliberation is so dark instead of addict, but it's been a year. So much. So much.

Snow is always a Towen thing, so it's cute that they incorporated that, but the proposal felt like a "fun twist" to throw in the towel, specially where reference is frustrated Link.

We were supposed to wonder if it was Teddy and Owen getting married at the end of the hour or not, but that wasn't the case.

The only thing weirder than Owen proposing in Meredith's backyard on Christmas was Link thinking it was a good idea to propose to Amelia at Maggie's wedding.

Taking Care of Teddy-tall - Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 9

I affection Link to death, but why do parties think it's ever acceptable to propose at someone else's wedding? It's tacky as hell!

In this case, it was enough to give you secondhand embarrassment.

Amelia and Link were some of the best parts of this season. The relations between the two countries has been a mature, health one, and it's been freshening how well they work together as a pairing.

Open and honest communication was one thing that given them apart from any of the other duos. As a cause, it's confusing and distressing to see their relationship unravel because of a lack of communication.

Different Ideas  - Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 17

It's exasperating that Amelia isn't talking to Link and telling him how she feels about anything, and it's disturbing that Link can't seem to read a room or notice that Amelia is not joyful right now.

Amelia has a biography of self-sabotage, it is therefore becomes you wonder if she's precipitating back into that dres with her relationship with Link, or has she originated disillusioned with their romance?

For a little, it felt as if she was on the brink of relapsing. She's spoken so much about her craving this season. Most of it felt pensive, but it's such a constant in her life that it has been concerning.

She's spent a lot of time in meetings and is speaking to people, speaking to AA radicals about her feelings more than Link or anyone else. And Amelia uttered this indeterminate feeling she has about positive, light-colored Link and his inability to understand her addiction or darkness.

Unhappy Amelia

It's as if she doesn't want to draw him down into her darkness, but she resents how seemingly excellent and undamaged he is compared to her or something.

The hour climbs showed that Amelia has proceeded almost a year not telling Link that she doesn't demand any more minors or any of the other things she's feeling, and that has to be hell for her and him.

He thought they were penalty, and she's been unhappy.

But it does feel as if Link isn't listening to Amelia either. They indicated that they would revisit the wedlock discussion and check back in with one another. The problem is that Amelia knew her stance then, but she didn't want to tell him.

Link's Proposal

But they haven't talked about it again since. Why did Link think the next step should've been popping the question?

And while they both chose to step in while Meredith was sick and facilitate take care of her children for two months, it was wrong of Link to compare that to him agreeing to help Jo foster Luna without talking to Amelia about it.

Link's intuition is that you strengthened in for family, but those two situations aren't comparable at all.

And it already pressed on a matter for them, since he's decided he wants more children apparently out of the blue( because story ), after spending an inordinate amount of term devastated by Mer's adolescents, and Amelia is not ready for all of that.

Link's Impulsiveness - tall - Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 17

By the time Link proposed to Amelia with his array of resounds to choose from, you almost wanted the beach to immerse him whole. Mer's kids didn't even know how to react to the silence, and without saying a word, Amelia told him everything he didn't want to hear.

His crestfallen phrase was ravaging, but he was also a glutton for punishment here. It certainly sucks that they've taken one of the very best duos and gave them through the wringer like this.

It hurts to see both of them in so much better pain.

Link's a good guy, and he did everything he could to help his best friend, so it's insane that as his life is falling apart, Jo's is coming together.


Thanks to Jo, we got a glimpse of both Tom and Jackson in the climax. It was fairly predictable, if ludicrous, that Jackson would sublet his loft to Jo.

So now, Levi and Helm will have her apartment, and she gets to live in Jackson's former idea probes with baby Luna. And in a humorous instant, she shared with Bailey that she sold her infirmary shares to Tom.

You're allowed to want what you want even if it's not what he requires.

Honestly, good for Tom.

The Luna detention thing was a bit dreary, but we all supposed Jo would get her happy terminating with Luna.

So Link promoted Luna on paper since he could pass the background check, and has a stable job and family, but he could hand her off to Jo? It feels a bit fraudulent.

Home with Luna

But if Link and Amelia are on the rocks, and Link resolves up staying with Jo for a bit, then he'll be fostering Luna after all.

Shockingly personas like Jo, Teddy, and Owen got their happiness, but damn, at what payment? Amelink, the cost is Amelink, dammit.
