After 11 seasons in 2015, Dempsey, whose character is a neurosurgeon, decided to leave "Grey's Anatomy." His character died because doctors failed to do a CT scan after he was in a car accident.

It was the first episode Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the series, had written since the season 8 finale. Rhimes enlisted screenwriter Krista Vernoff to take over as showrunner when she left ABC in 2017.
