Like all Grey’s Anatomy season finales, we reacted pretty strongly to this season’s and so did our favorite characters. And now that we’ve had time to collect our feelings, here’s the Season 9 finale, as told by GIFs!

So as the episode started, Owen is sending Ethan away, and when Cristina finds out that Owen wanted to adopt him and didn’t tell her, she is like:

We don’t blame her. But she has to go, because Meredith is in labor and looks a lot like this:

And when she finds out she has to have a C-Section — after the power goes out! — she is like:

But it is the only option, so it had to be done. Meanwhile, Arizona is getting dressed after her little indiscretion with Lauren, which makes us feel like:

It’s a good thing she’s dressed, because there’s a crisis in the NICU. Because of the power outage, the babies’ ventilators are losing battery power and there are no back-up batteries. So they don’t worry the tiny human makers, Arizona instructs Alex and Jo to act like this:

In the OR, Bailey still isn’t able to operate, so Richard takes over. When there’s a leak in the patient’s heart, they call in Cristina to find it in the dark. At first, she’s like:

But after Richard coaches her, she’s more like:

Yay! Cristina finds the leak, and the patient is fine. And Meredith’s new baby has been born, and he’s a little early, but he’ll be okay. Time to celebrate, right?

Wrong. Outside the hospital, there’s a big bus crash caused by the storm, and while trying to get the passengers out, the bus explodes with Jackson in it! So April’s like:

And so are we. But Jackson’s okay! So we're like:

Callie checks him out, and he’s fine... until April comes in, mad that he went into the bus and almost got himself killed, and she’s like:

Uh oh. And now, as Meredith is getting sutured after her C-Section, Shane discovers she’s bleeding internally as a result of her fall down the stairs. He’s going to have to operate on her (still in the dark, mind you) and we're like:

When Bailey hears Meredith is in surgery and isn’t doing well, she turns into the Hulk:

And we're so happy to see her back to her old self, we're like:

Cristina and Derek wait for Meredith to get out of surgery, and we’re just as worried as they are. The baby’s fine, but is Meredith? We're like:

But then we find out she’s okay, and she names the baby Bailey:

Back in the NICU, the power is back and all is well. Lauren approaches Arizona, and tells her if she ever changes her mind about Callie, she’s interested. So we're like:

 photo tumblr_md2z8nrKxB1r6kab2o1_r1_500_zps20558e21.gif


And so is Callie, when she walks up and realizes what's going on. This leads to a HUGE fight, where Callie is like:

And Arizona is like:

Things aren’t going well for Cristina and Owen’s relationship either. Cristina knows Owen wants kids, and she isn’t going to stop him, so she ends the relationship. She knows she’s doing the right thing, but Owen is more like:

Fortunately, good things are happening for Alex and Jo. He finally tells her how he feels, and then they’re like:

And we’re all:

 photo tumblr_mlv96ch6R61r6kab2o3_250_zps7cf11bc0.gif


And April has a confession of her own, and Jackson’s like:

But April’s like:

 photo tumblr_mmykci2MOo1qctzxno4_r1_250_zpsabee30c1.gif


And then we see Richard, lying on the ground, electrocuted, and we're like:

And when we remember we don’t get to see another new episode of
Grey’s until fall, it gets even worse.
