By the end of the episode, baby Shepherd was a-okay. Meredith, on the other hand, was in bad shape. It turns out the fall she took in last week’s episode (Season 9, Episode 23: “Readiness Is All”), caused internal bleeding, and before we knew it, she was bleeding out on the operating table — and with Derek attending to their newborn son, Shane was the only around to operate on her. Talk about pressure!
Despite Shane’s best efforts, Meredith starts to go into v-fib. Thankfully, Bailey comes to the rescue. But the bleeding was so bad, even Bailey struggled to repair the tear. Cue the emotional music and Derek and Cristina’s slow-mo run through the hospital. “Meredith Grey has survived a bomb, a drowning, a gunman, and a plane crash,” Cristina told Derek. “She’ll survive this.”
However, when Bailey comes out to deliver the news, she breaks down, leading Derek and Cristina to think they’d lost “their person” forever. But don’t worry, MerDer fans, Meredith survives (yet again), all thanks to Bailey. So, of course, when Meredith and Derek decided to name their son Bailey, we couldn’t stop sobbing.
Bailey’s been put through the ringer this season, so it was nice to finally see her get some recognition. She is the heart of the hospital, after all.
