Last night’s Grey’s Anatomy followed the doctors as they attended a fancy medical conference, and the show attempted to do something a little different by pairing Maggie, Richard, Teddy, and the new hot dude doctor’s conference experiences with a bit of extra plot and backstory. It felt like four different episodes smushed into one, and it was a LOT to process at one time. Let’s just say fans didn’t love it.

We got a glimpse of Teddy’s life in New York before 9/11 (and learned she’s had affairs before, which was pretty important info), learned that Cormac met his late wife at a medical conference just like this one. Maggie had a whirlwind fling, while Richard had stroke (or something similar) that caused him to imagine a reunion with Catherine. Any one of these, had it been a stand-alone episode, would have been more believable. Pushing them all together and devoting roughly 15 minutes to each one felt rushed.

One user summed it up on Reddit: “Yo what is actually happening? Here’s a random lightning romance! Here’s a lightning speed emotional synopsis of McWidow’s griefs. Btw Teddy is a bisexual cheater who lost her forever love on 9/11.” Another put it this way, “Did I eat that edible already? Because I feel like I’m watching Grey’s actors’ heads pasted on other people’s bodies in a different show.”

Yep, that’s fair! Not only is the potential loss of Richard pretty devastating, but they also ended the last episode teasing a potential DeLuca motorcycle crash. So...what happened there? Either way, there are lots of questions going into next week’s episode. Stay tuned!
