Worry about the person delivering the baby. One spoiler hints that we don't need to be as worried about the MerDer baby as we do about "the person delivering Mer's baby." Does that mean Mer herself, or the doc that's helping her deliver?
Reasons Meredith Will Probably Be Fine
This finale is not as brutal. Shonda Rhimes has said this finale is not as "brutal" as last year’s. That would be a very inaccurate thing to say if Meredith died!
There is joy. Shonda Rhimes has also said that the MerDer baby's birth is "a really beautiful story," and she says there is "some joy" in this finale. Those hints combined suggest that maybe Mer will give birth and perhaps not be the doc whose life is in danger at all. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking...
Duh-doy. As we said in the beginning, there's also just common sense. Sure, Shonda Rhimes can be ruthless, but we just can't see the show killing Meredith. She might be the doctor whose life hangs in the balance at the end of the season, but we're fairly confident she'll be OK in the end.
