‘Grey’s Anatomy’ returns its dead characters as ghosts, and fans are not emotionally prepared

Fans of the hit series "Grey's Anatomy" were broken-hearted over the latest episode.

Producer and, screenwriter Shonda Rhimes left fans devastated when she brought back some of the best beloved - and long deceased - characters in an episode titled “Flowers Grow Out of My Grave,” reported Yahoo.com on November 2, 2018.

Rhimes resurrected the dead characters in a special episode commemorating the Day of the Dead.

MEREDITH'S FATHER IS DYING

Meredith Grey hears the news that her father, Thatcher is dying. She is devastated, but a patient's mother tells her that marigold flowers guide spirits back to their loved ones, and this comforts her.

Meredith realizes that she has survived the loss of many people she has loved before.

MCDREAMY IS BACK FROM THE DEAD

To comfort Meredith, Rhimes brought back Meredith's dead husband Derek Shepherd, aka McDreamy; and also a host of deceased characters from over the series' 15 seasons.

MCSTEAMY AND THE OTHER DEAD RETURN FROM THE GRAVE

These include such audience favorites as Mark Sloan, aka McSteamy; George O’Malley; Meredith’s younger half-sister, Lexie Grey; Meredith’s mother Ellis Grey; and Meredith’s dog, “Doc.”

FANS WERE GRIEFSTRIKEN

Die-hard fans who have been devoted since the series began in 2015 were devastated to relive their grief over the characters' passing and paid tribute to Rhime's genius. 

How the series will proceed is a secret that Rhimes won't be giving away. It is the unpredictability of her plots and her realistic characters that keep fans addicted to "Grey's Anatomy.

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

Many may not know that the series original title was to have been "Surgeons." The current title was taken from a classic human anatomy textbook, edited in 1858, and a must have for every medical student.

The series was going to be set Boston, Philadelphia, or New York City; but Rhimes eventually settled for Seattle, Washington as the home of her fictional Hospital. 

Alex Karev didn't exist in Rhimes' original script. He was added in after the pilot episode was shot, but 15 season's later he is still a central character in "Grey's Anatomy." 

Rhime's main character, Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, is still going strong, even after all the losses in her life, and keeps inspiring fans with her resilience and compassion.
