Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 Spoilers: Details About the Season Finale Disaster
Even though the season finale for Grey's Anatomy— Season 10, Episode 24 — is still five weeks away, we're starting to piece together what will happen in the sure-to-be climactic capper.
Casting sides for the episode — cryptic notes about the episode used to cast actors — say that there will be a massive car accident, but we're not so convinced. We think something even worse is going to happen — and that it will be a lot closer to home for the Grey Sloan Memorial docs. Here's our argument:
As we know, casting sides can be very cagey, renaming characters and even rewriting storylines. (For example, a casting side for Episode 18 said that the Austrian visitor Dr. Strauss was impressed by a cardiothoracic surgeon, not a neurosurgeon like Derek.)
In recent years, the season finales have alternated between disaster drama and and emotional/relationship drama — Season 6 was the hospital shooting, Season 7 was Mer-Der strife, Season 8 was the plane crash, and Season 9 was the Calzona affair. That means that we're due for another disaster here in Season 10.
The casting sides mention three possible causes for the "pile-up" scenario: a gang-related carjacking, an out-of-control car, and a wayward dog. Either there's a lot of false information floating around about the accident's cause in the story — or the casting sides writers aren't getting their lies straight!
In the sides, a reporter on the scene at Grey Sloan says that it's an "intensely dangerous situation" for her to even be there. If the calamity were a car accident, why would it be dangerous for her to be at the hospital?
An eight-month pregnant woman has a tourniqueted arm that is missing part of her forearm and hand. It's not impossible for her to sustain such injuries in a car crash, but they seem more likely to have come from something like a building collapse.
TVLine's "May Sweeps Scorecard" notes that one show will have a workplace destroyed during the TV episodes airing in May. Not saying it's Grey's, but not saying it isn't!
