Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 is quickly coming to an end — tear! With only two episodes left (and episodes that we’ve been promised are pretty mind-blowing), we’ve been thinking a lot about what happened this season and how it might end. There have been a lot of awesome moments in Season 9 that we loved, but there are a few that stick out to us more than others.
So before we get wrapped up in the epic two-part finale, here are our top five favorite episodes from Season 9:
“Remember the Time” (Episode 2) After the time jump in the season premiere, we missed out on a lot of details about the plane crash we waited all summer to hear, so we were glad when the second episode filled in some of those blanks. We loved finding out what happened to everyone where the Season 8 finale left off, but what we’ll always remember most about this episode is watching the characters say goodbye to Mark, which completely broke our hearts.
“Beautiful Doom” (Episode 5) We love love love Cristina and Meredith’s friendship, so we were thrilled to see an episode all about the two of them. We finally got to see Meredith processing Lexie’s death for the first time, as much as it made us want to cry. It was also super sad to see Dr. Thomas die (he will forever be Feeny to us), despite the fact that Cristina tried so hard to save his life. We were so glad when Cristina decided to finally come home!
“Things We Said Today” (Episode 10) Bailey has always been one of our favorite characters, so we couldn’t wait to see her marry Ben! And it was perfectly fitting that she was late to her own wedding because she was busy operating in an attempt to save Adele’s life - what a Bailey thing to do! But the end of the episode was one of the saddest moments of the season for us when Richard told Meredith that despite Bailey’s efforts, Adele had died.
“The Face of Change” (Episode 14) One of our favorite moments this season was seeing the unusual pairing up of Richard and Callie as they pretended to be a couple and took a field trip to investigate a Pegasus hospital to find out exactly what they were getting themselves into. The two of them were hilarious together as fake patients! We also loved the hardcore surgery in the closed ER when April brings in a trauma victim who has no other options - and the way Meredith’s inability to work an iPad ends up saving the day.
“This Is Why We Fight” (Episode 16) We loved the idea of the doctors buying the hospital from the beginning, so we loved seeing them work together to get it done. We knew when the investors didn’t bite that it wouldn’t be the end of the mission. Even so, it still gave us chills at the end when Richard and Catherine Avery gathered up the docs to let them know the Harper Avery foundation would help them buy the hospital - and we totally didn’t see it coming when she made Jackson head of the board.
