Grey’s Anatomy Season 9, Episode 20 Sneak Peek: Meredith Tells Derek to “Call the Lawyer”
Grey’s Anatomy’s golden couple Meredith and Derek have been through a lot through the show’s nine seasons, and though they’ve sat down with lawyers before, it seems like Season 9, Episode 20: “She’s Killing Me” is the most dramatic instance yet.
After Meredith tests positive for Alzheimer’s genes, she freaks out, rushing down the stairs with Derek. Though he insists, “It’s entirely possible it means nothing at all,” she is adamant about calling the lawyer and updating their will.
“Even if you get the disease, it’s decades away!” Derek reasons, but his wife won’t hear it. “It might not be,” she says. “We have a child and we’re having another child. Right now it says that Lexie is Zola’s legal guardian if anything happens to us. That’s not going to work.”
Though both seem exasperated in the conversation, we’re just thankful that they’re not headed for a divorce.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9, Episode 20: “She’s Killing Me” airs Thursday, April 3 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
