Here’s Who We Think Could Die In the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 15 Finale

It’s May, and you know what that means: It’s time for another epic Grey’s Anatomy season finale. The series, which is about to conclude its record-breaking 15th season, has gone to extreme places in the past: There have been natural disasters, shootings, every kind of vehicle accident imaginable, and much, much more. Oh, and usually, at least one main character bites the dust.

The last few season finales have been, on the Grey’s Anatomy scale, relatively mild. Season 13 had a giant fire, and Season 12 and 14 featured wedding days that certainly didn’t go off without a hitch (or several), but there weren’t any major deaths. So many are worried that this means it’s time for a return to the old — and that means someone is out. Here are one viewers’ predictions as to who that might be.

Owen Hunt

This is my No. 1 guess, and it’s painful, to say the least. Owen has, like the rest of his co-workers, been through a lot. Multiple tours in Iraq, the disappearance (and reappearance) or his sister, plus loves lost and found and lost again. But recently, things have been looking up for him: He had a major breakthrough in therapy, learning why he holds himself back from being happy and discovering who he wants to be with. Plus, he’s got Leo and a baby girl on the way.

So naturally, he’s on the chopping block. Owen is currently in a car with Schmidt (who will be a main cast member next season) and the blood donor for Karev’s patient. The fog is so bad that the driver can’t see, and there are cars crashing all around them. Owen has been known to sacrifice himself for the greater good, and we can definitely see that happening here. Meaning we’ll never know if he wants to be with Amelia or Teddy.

Jo Karev

Things have been very rough for Jo lately. After marrying Alex and thinking about starting a family with him, she went to find her birth mother. In a devastating and powerful episode, she learned that she was the result of her mom’s rape, which sent her into a spiral. She drank, put herself and patients at risk, and her relationship began to fall apart.

Now, it looks as though she’s starting to pull out of it, but that’s just when things often go wrong, isn’t it? Plus, her talk with Meredith was inconclusive, and the eponymous doctor was afraid Jo might take her own life. Now that there’s a lot going on, Meredith won’t have time to focus on Jo, and that could mean the difference between her survival and her demise.

Jackson Avery

There’s always a wild card in there — someone who you don’t expect will die, but ends up shockingly the victim in a sudden twist of events. (See the plane crash, George’s death, etc.) There are plenty of doctors to pick from, but I have a few reasons why I think it could be Jackson who, at this moment, is perfectly fine.

Jackson may be savvy when it comes to the outdoors, but Maggie isn’t, and they’re currently trapped in a heavy rainstorm, determined to get her back so she can operate (Teddy is out of commission given she’s in labor). I foresee him doing whatever it takes to help his girlfriend get to the hospital — even if it costs him his life. Plus, actor Jesse Williams has been getting involved in a lot of film projects lately, so it’s possible he’s looking to get out and try something new.
