I’m not crying, you’re crying.
It just hit me. I’ve watched 300 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. Three freaking hundred and I’ve loved every moment of it and I’m just happy to be along this wild ride.
“Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story” is a love letter to the fans that have stuck with this show until now. It was both a rush of emotions, tears of happiness, and filled with lots of nostalgia.
The opening theme of the 300th episode brought it back to the first season theme song. Loved it!
Meredith and Alex are hit with a lot of shock as they see patients that look like George and Cristina and Izzie. Their reactions was just everything. It brought me back to how amazing the beginning of the series was, the original intern team.
My oh my have the times changed. What is so heartfelt about this episode is how they touched a little bit of heart and nostalgia with most of the characters. Even though we have lost so many of them throughout the years, they aren’t forgotten within the way they too have placed such a huge role on Grey’s Anatomy and allowing it to have become a show so many have loved watching. And continue to do so.
With the mention of Lexie, Mark, Derek, and even Callie was a great touch and a great tribute.
The 300th episode gave us a lot of easter eggs if you were able to catch them, which I enjoyed. Alex remembering Izzie through her look-alike and picturing his own version of her life to Jo was a sweet gesture. He hasn’t talked to her in years, but they shared some crazy history. You can’t just forget someone like that, really. Till this day, a part of me feels sad about how it ended with these two. But Jo is pretty dang awesome for Alex, he deserves happiness now.
So many things circled around Meredith Grey in this episode that I also enjoyed as well! From riding that ferry boat with Alex in the beginning of the episode because Derek used to love riding ferry boats *tears*.
Her winning that Harper Avery award was the best part, really. She deserved it, she deserved it so much.
That scene made me tear up a lot, it was beautiful and it embodied so much of Meredith’s life and the people that she loves. Even though it was always Cristina that wanted to win a Harper Avery, it seemed a great fit to have Meredith win it, especially during this episode.
Grey’s Anatomy continues to be a show that I carry a whole lot of love for. 14 seasons is huge. 300 episodes seems so wild to achieve, but it happened. So many stories, so much of everything that I don’t know how I’ll feel like when the show actually ends.
But “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story” was a great episode, indeed a love letter to all the loyal fans of this show.
