Grey’s Anatomy Round Table: Do You Think Hayes is “Derek-Approved?”

All people stated goodbye to Andrew DeLuca, as anguish became as soon as at the forefront of Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 Episode 8.

And by the discontinue of the hour, Teddy became as soon as despondent beyond recognition.

Join Jasmin Pettie and TV Enthusiasts Meaghan Frey and Jasmine Blu as they talk about the hour.

How a lot did DeLuca’s memorial service pass you or web you within the “feels?”

Jasmin: It moved me rather loads, which I became as soon as bowled over; I’ve by no methodology truly liked the character, and I spent Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 and Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 actively hating him because his habits became as soon as so god unpleasant.

I became as soon as bowled over that I chanced on his memorial service rather difficult and smartly carried out. I judge it became as soon as because they chanced on a inventive methodology to fabricate it and because funerals within the accurate world esteem we in total fabricate are no longer that you simply might want to judge of real now.

Meaghan: I truly differed from Jasmin. While some moments were sweet and hit the build, esteem DeLuca’s utility tape talking about desirous to work with the extensive docs at Grey Sloan, others upright totally disregarded the ticket for me.

The truth that they took the time to file the characters talking however didn’t comprise the dialogue became as soon as one in all essentially the most odd decisions I’ve ever viewed them kind on the recount. Shapely watching them silently pass their mouths added nothing to the 2d and truly ended up making me offended.

I lost my partner. The therapist stated there would possibly per chance be no despicable methodology to process the anguish. But there is, it be via a computer camouflage. It be despicable.


Jasmine: I am with you, Meaghan. I am restful most ceaselessly frustrated with the death because it’s, however the likelihood to luxuriate in them talk about this character all the scheme in which via some video montage and no longer allow us to hear what they were announcing became as soon as so jarring and distracting that it took me out of it. DeLuca’s interview became as soon as wonderful, I enlighten, though incongruent with his usual background but again.

What are your suggestions on how all people processed the details? (Teddy’s catatonic state, Helm, Schmico, etc.)

Jasmin: I judge they did a in point of fact apt job exhibiting all people’s process on this episode. Anguish and guilt are assorted for all people, and I am cushty that they showed that. Teddy and Owen displayed survivors’ guilt and frustration that they did the entirety real and he restful died.

On the discontinue, we test Teddy in a catatonic state, and it made me judge that she could be ill herself or that there became as soon as something else despicable.

While I’ve by no methodology been a Teddy and Owen shipper, I did esteem the 2d at the discontinue the build Owen noticed something became as soon as despicable and came to visit to her and suggested her that he would luxuriate in her dwelling, picked her up, and carried her.

I totally bought Helm’s reaction. I understand why she stated and opinion these irascible issues about him. DeLuca became as soon as an ass for a in point of fact very long time. I presumably would luxuriate in carried out the same thing myself, however that would no longer mean she wished him dreary.

I opinion what Maggie did for her became as soon as very unbiased appropriate. My heart broke for Schmitt when he described his emotions. Richard became as soon as offended, and Bailey went overboard attempting to work out what came about. All people’s skills of a loss is assorted, and I esteem that they showed that.

Meaghan: That you might want to presumably luxuriate in opinion all people became as soon as DeLuca’s simplest friend from the methodology they were acting all the scheme in which via this episode.

It nearly felt esteem the exhibits that listen to a high college the build somebody dies, and all people and their mom talks about how a lot they liked them and how a lot they omit them even supposing they were the college outcast.

Maggie’s breakdown felt uncooked and accurate, so I feel esteem she hit me the toughest for my part.

With the total talks of visitor stars coming support, I would luxuriate in liked to see Arizona strategy support for his memorial service or no longer lower than kind an appearance through video. In spite of the entirety, they did are residing together for rather, so she can also very smartly be one in all the oldsters he became as soon as closest to on the recount.

I judge we owe it to the oldsters we lost to are residing the lives they cannot. Even when were at a loss. Even the build we’re scared.


Jasmine: I am if truth be told attempting to procure the total extent of DeLuca being this unpleasant, Jasmin. I mean, I fabricate web folks no longer liking the man at events, I’ve had my moments too, however I am blanking on all of this! Did he abolish somebody’s kitten, and I disregarded it or something?

Yes, Meaghan! That’s exactly what it be been feeling esteem for me, too! I am attempting to know the scheme in which DeLuca’s death is ready to roll over accurate into a Teddy redemption arc real now and the feedback about how they were shut. When?!

I restful feel esteem they glossed over the oldsters closing who would’ve been closest to him by glossing over when they were knowledgeable, esteem Maggie and Bailey. I, too, wish we would’ve viewed or no longer lower than heard a reference to Arizona because they were roommates and shut company. I additionally agree that Maggie and Bailey felt the rawest and accurate to me.

Helm became as soon as OK, brooding about she didn’t esteem the man, however hell, I am restful questioning if she had that energy for the M.I.A. Parker who fell off the face of the earth.

Derek and Meredith discussed the early life, Mer returning to them, and he does know Ellis. React.

Jasmin: Oh my god, my heart! Ugh, I teared up! I have been looking forward to them to chat about the early life, and right here it’s!

Listening to Derek talking about Ellis and radiant that he watched over Meredith and the early life were so emotional for me. I liked listening to him picture who she is and attending to be taught more about her.

I liked listening to him talk about Zola and Meredith teaching her to plod a bike. I am cushty he inspired her to return. As a lot as Derek and Meredith omit every other, she’s wished support within the land of the residing.

Jasmine: Yeah, I opinion that became as soon as a huge scene. It became as soon as presumably one of the best phase about the sea scuttle scenes with Derek. It felt esteem some closure on him dying before he chanced on out about his diminutive one, so I liked that 2d.

Enact you luxuriate in Hayes making it to the sea scuttle with Meredith puts him support within the entrance running for a attainable romance if she wakes up?

Jasmin: Completely. I have been looking forward to this, diminutive one! I devour it! I liked their scenes together. I liked how Meredith kept joyfully asking him what he did to kind her children smile so extensive and snigger so loudly.

She knows he can’t hear her, but there she is, dying to know what he stated or did. They already feel esteem a pair to me. Loads in sync.

I devour that Derek, who became as soon as confirmed to be extraordinarily jealous in existence, inspired her to hear Hayes out. I truly felt esteem he became as soon as giving her his blessing, and the truth that they established that Hayes met the early life almost they most ceaselessly know who he is– sealed the deal for me.

Meaghan: If Mer makes it out of this, then there is absolute self belief in my suggestions that she’s going to discontinue up with Hayes. If that ends up being the case, though, it makes it feel esteem this total McDreamy Seaside Bash became as soon as a waste of time.

I understand it’s morbid to desire the result in kick the bucket, however at this point, Derek and her skipping off accurate into a comely sea scuttle sunset feels esteem the finest real ending for her.

On the unreal hand, I am a sucker for Hayes, so I will are residing with it if he ends up being her contented ending, especially after we chanced on out he is inserting with the early life.

It be OK. I”ll be real right here.


Jasmine: I esteem the root of Mer and Hayes. I judge if Mer wakes up, then it be the direction they’re going to head, and I am cool with that.

My finest criticism is that they luxuriate in attach Hayes on the backburner for practically all of the season. So no longer finest luxuriate in they robbed us of the likelihood to see their relationship manufacture over the season, however Hayes would no longer web individual construction either.

But yeah, if he is talking to the early life and all, then it sounds promising.

On a scale of 1-10, how a lot did you revel in drunken Link, Jo, and Jackson? Enact you luxuriate in their scenes equipped a lot-wished levity?

Jasmin: I could allege a solid 7. I truly judge they did. Their scenes were humorous and uncooked and equipped a appropriate stability for the episode. I additionally liked seeing more of Jo and Jackson’s company with benefits relationship and more of Jo and Link and Jackson and Link’s friendship.

I could truly forgotten that Jackson and Link were company, so it became as soon as cool to see that dynamic but again and that Link is supportive of their disclose.

It be Jackson Avery! I am right here for a transient bang!


Meaghan: 8. It would were elevated if I became as soon as truly a Jo fan and if it didn’t initiate up out with a Jo and Jackson tryst. I managed to totally block that out from my memory all the scheme in which via the damage, and I wish I could return to being at nighttime but again.

That being stated, I revel in them as company, and I revel in any time Link is within the mix with somebody, so I became as soon as for certain right here for it.

Hell, perhaps within the occasion that they’d paired up Link and Jo, I will luxuriate in gotten on board with Jo as a personality (I am a firm Amelink shipper, so this could finest be in an alternate universe the build they fabricate no longer exist).

Jasmine: I could allege a six, however it worked smartly adequate. I will have faith Meaghan with nearly the entirety.

Link is somebody you might want to attach in a scene with every other character, and it constantly works. He’s the finest bridge. Chris Carmack is so underrated, and I esteem him right here.

I, too, had blocked out the Jo and Jackson situationship, so I could’ve long gone with out the reminder, however I constantly loved Jackson and Link’s unusual bromance, so I opinion the scenes were relaxing.

Now that Winston has privileges at GSM, fabricate you luxuriate in he and Maggie will work together more?

Jasmin: I judge so. Winston residing in Boston became as soon as finest going to head on for so long; there would possibly per chance be finest loads you might want to fabricate almost.

I knew he’d be difficult to Seattle one day, and I am cushty to see him working at Grey Sloan Memorial and inserting with Maggie’s family. I am additionally contented that every Winston and Hayes are at perfect getting the real camouflage time they deserve.

I will be to see more of their dynamic difficult forward as Maggie old to be his trainer, and she or he is now his boss.

Meaghan: Most likely, however I more or less wish they’d protect far-off from every other on company time. Mixing industry with pleasure in total creates more points for the Grey Sloan couples, and I esteem Winston. I desire this to work out for them.

Can I attach in an utility now for him to be Link’s original BFFL so we are succesful of place away with Nico?

Jasmine: Damn, Jasmin. I wasn’t mad by the dynamic the build Maggie old to be Winston’s boss. Assuredly, is that this the unreal to how DeLuca could no longer address dating his helpful, Maggie, however magically scoot over it for Meredith, and now Maggie will get her light pupil that can address it?

I will test Maggie and Winston working together more as they proceed to procure original ways to flesh Winston out and incorporate him within the recount more. 

Enact you luxuriate in Richard and the others were too onerous on Bailey? Or became as soon as she hurting them by going over how DeLuca died?

Jasmin: I fabricate no longer judge Richard and the others were too onerous on her. I judge they were all hurting, and Richard suggested her exactly what she wished to hear.

In looking for an solution or a situation off of what came about, she became as soon as unintentionally hurting the oldsters around her who were struggling too. The strength of Richard and Bailey’s relationship is that they would possibly be able to converse every other the truth when no one else can or will.

You are causing me hurt. You are causing hurt to Hunt and Altman.


Meaghan: Yes and no. Bailey desperately wished closure that she didn’t web thanks to lacking DeLuca’s total case. Undoubtedly, she became as soon as going to desire answers.

BUT as soon as Richard went to her and stated it wasn’t stunning to position Owen and Teddy via that as soon as they were already hurting. I wish she would luxuriate in backed off of it rather bit. All people grieves otherwise, though, and this became as soon as how she selected to grieve.

Jasmine: I judge Richard became as soon as onerous on her. Shiny Bailey’s historical past with her underlings and shedding them (from George, her favourite, to Percy getting murdered in entrance of her), and what she no longer too long ago went via with her mom, AND her OCD, they restful kept her at nighttime about DeLuca till after he died.

I judge that became as soon as incredibly insensitive, they most ceaselessly forfeited the real to micromanage or attach a question to that she prioritize somebody else’s grieving process over her comprise.

She presumably haven’t got obsessively, compulsively fixated on it (it became as soon as a total OCD situation off whether folks understand it or no longer) if she became as soon as there when it came about, so there would possibly per chance be that.

And Teddy became as soon as the same one that had Cristina going via what came about to Henry a million events, so this is no longer always truly a brand original nor unexpected reaction, they most ceaselessly could restful’ve left Bailey on my own rather than all people telling her how she could restful grieve.

Enact you luxuriate in Zola has too a lot stress and accountability placed on her?

Jasmin: Gosh, Zola is a accurate trooper. She for certain is Meredith Grey’s daughter via and via. I am a huge believer in chanced on family, and one in all the issues Grey’s does truly smartly for me is exhibits that there are many different ways to be a family, and that family is what you trend of it.

Just family is made up of the oldsters who devour and make stronger you unconditionally, no longer genetics. I truly devour that they’ve confirmed the strength of that bond between Zola and her family. So yes, I fabricate judge she has plenty of stress and accountability placed on her, which in total comes with being the oldest.

Meaghan: Zola is indubitably Meredith Grey’s child. She has needed to tackle loads in her short existence, even more than she could presumably be aware. She has needed to develop up mercurial thanks to that.

It is unbiased appropriate to see her be a kid as soon as in a while. When she became as soon as dancing with her siblings and Winston, she became as soon as so contented. It became as soon as such a stark difference to the girl coping with the opportunity of her mom dying. Let’s luxuriate in a luxuriate in a examine more of that Zola.

Hi, mommy. I omit you loads. I devour you.

Zola [to Mer]

Jasmine: Zola is stronger than she could restful could restful be, and I agree that it became as soon as a breath of unusual air seeing her dancing and having relaxing for rather. On the unreal hand, the maturity that she has to exude because the oldest is every relatable to me and incredibly anxious.

Most ceaselessly, it feels esteem she’s essentially the most extinct, sensible person in that total house. It be a terrific amount of stress on somebody so young. The more I test this extinct Zola, attempting to retain it all together, the angrier I am about Meredith frolicking on the sea scuttle.

What became as soon as your favourite 2d from the episode? Is there something else you’d procure so as to add that wasn’t lined?

Jasmin: For it be the sea scuttle scenes! Meredith and Derek. Meredith and Hayes. I liked it all!

I liked Derek’s soft teasing. His facial expressions. Being attentive to them talk about the early life.

I liked that Hayes suggested Meredith to combat, and he talked about how her children were doing and how all people desires her.

My favourite hidden 2d of the episode became as soon as Tom! He appears within the background at DeLuca’s outside memorial, that methodology he is bettering. If Tom is smartly adequate to be delivery air at the memorial, then his situation has enormously improved since perfect we saw, and that is big. Tom’s a wonderfully advanced character, and I am cushty he is doing better.

Meaghan: YES! The total lot about Derek on the sea scuttle. Him talking about how he watches the early life and how a lot he knows about them had my heart bursting.

When he first talked about Ellis, I opinion he supposed Mama Grey, and I became as soon as about to raise up a petition to luxuriate in him completely relocated to the sea scuttle so he could web far from her.

I truly wish they’d give us one full sea scuttle episode so he and Mer can be allowed the time to remind us all how a lot greatness MerDer delivered to the recount as soon as upon a time. We web glimpses of it, then they lower support to the (completely) residing, and it leaves me wanting up to now more!

Did somebody lose a naked man because he went that methodology!


Jasmine: Um, Link made me smile. But yeah, I liked Perez and his comment about the naked man. Perez is such a scene-stealer. I additionally loved Maggie and Helm’s support-to-support hug. I chanced on that to be such a extremely tremendous scene and inserting gesture. It became as soon as rather of a gut-punch, however for as soon as, successfully.
