So far, season 17 of Grey’s Anatomy has been jam packed with drama and details. Doctor Meredith Grey, the series’ main character, has spent the better part of season 17 battling COVID-19. While the beloved doctor has been fighting for her life, her family, friends, and co-workers have been working together to try to navigate how to treat patients amidst a global pandemic.

Jo has been grappling with wanting to switch specialties, and it seems like Amelia might have found her happily-ever-after with Link. Many of the scenes of the newest season have been dedicated to Teddy and Owen’s storyline. Teddy’s infidelity led to her and Owen separating, but, as viewers have been learning, Teddy’s struggles with intimacy run much deeper. Though many viewers have been enjoying learning about Teddy’s past, the wayward opportunity came off the heels of Doctor Andrew DeLuca’s death. In an unexpected twist, DeLuca was recently murdered. Fans and viewers shouldn’t be too surprised seeing as many characters before faced similar tragic fates.
