Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Promo: We Are Going to Die!

by at . Comments

The stunning end of last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy and the promo for next Thursday's season finale certainly made clear what the dark, complex thing Shonda Rhimes teased consists of.

In the aftermath of the crash, the doctors must battle to stay alive while trying to save the lives of their peers, as the shocking turn of events last night could mean devastating consequences.

Take a look at ABC's first promo for "Flight" and get scared now:

Also in the eighth season finale, Bailey and Ben make a decision regarding their relationship's future, Teddy is presented with a tempting offer, and Richard plans a special dinner for the residents.

As always, the Grey's Anatomy season-ender is not to be missed. Even with the original cast now under contract for next season, there's no telling which characters might pay the ultimate price.

For an in-depth discussion of this week's penultimate Season 8 episode, read our review of "Migration" from earlier. We've updated our Grey's Anatomy music section with last night's tracks, as well.

Then, as we gear up for the main event, tell us:

Will Mark and Lexie get back together? Are any or all of the doctors really leaving Seattle? Are Cristina and Hunt done? Will everyone survive the plane crash? Sound off in the comments below!

I don't know if you all made any sense of this, but Merideth has had more lives than a cat. She should have died several times on this show, but I don't think it will be her. I think there will be a few people who will die. I think that with the news that April has gotten, she could commit suicide or something. Arizona, she could be on her way out as she really doens't have much action in the show, it would allow a opportunity for Alex to take charge of Pediatrics. As for the 6 main characters who signed a new 2 yr contract ( Derek who we haven't seen in the preview clip** I don't think he died, they wouldn't give it up that easily**), Merideth( even though Callie is doing the voiceover, it doesn't mean that she will die. Remember, in the earlier seasons of Greys many of the cast members were used as voiceovers for certain clips of the show, and it happens from time to time in the more current episodes. I don't think she will die), Richard, Miranda, Alex and Christina, who is holding everything together in this final episode. But, to throw a twist in the game, She is really one who would effect the whole cast if she was killed off. Think about it, if she were to die, Owen would probally not know how to go on, so I could see him step down as Chief and give Richard the chance to regain his position. With Merideth, of course even though Christina said Owen was her person, she is still soul mates with Merideth. Merideth would have a hard time to cope. With Derek and Merideth, Christina saved Both of their lives at one point in the show's history, so they would both be tramatised. With Bailey, she knows that Christina is the best out of the residents. And finally with Dr. Aldman, she would be torn.)I don't know about you all, but I will be glued to the TV come thursday, because this is one Season Finalie that isn't to be missed.

the first five mins are on youtube, abc first look, spoiler alert! dereks hand is stuck in part of the plane, uses a rock to try to jam it out, still can move it but is really swollen.christina dislocated shoulder, marks fine, arizona's leg is broken and they show her bone popped out. pilot is paralzyed. meredith has a bad cut on her leg.lexie is stuck under the plane by her stomach, looks pale and has blood in her mouth. marks says she has a shortness of breath but is responsive, but she really looks the most hurt. so unless someone in seattle dies, it might be her.

if you watch the promo on youtube you can see it frame by frame: arizona:
she is wearing dark blue scrubs on the flight and you see her badly hurt and in alot of pain, she might have lost alot of blood but she is shown trying to sit up against the plane's stair railings. pilot:
a hand pops out(not the one holding the cell phone)and is by the front windows, you can see a man in a white shirt trying to test the controls on the plane. he looks fine and alive. Meredith:
in one shot she has a wrap around her thigh, she seems like she has some memory loss and i think it will affect her next season slowly. mark and lexie:
he is trying to get a lady out in light blue scrubs(lexie)who is under a giant piece of the plane, has blood coming out of her mouth, and her stomach is smushed with blood all on the ground.i think they finally tell each other how they feel and then she dies. mark yells at christina that they need to get her out but lexie looks pretty stuck in there, pinned by metal, it looks impossible for her to survive. mark then is shown holding on to christina like in mourning, and merediths then on the ground. derek:
haaaaaaaaaaaaaaasss to still be alive, he already had a traumatic season finale and they wouldnt leave meredith to raise their child alone. i have no idea where callie is! who knows maybe bailey gets in an accident in seattle and that would bring all the residents back to seattle instead of leaving. and they will probably offer april back her job since someone dies.

Well the original cast is coming back! Shonda Rhimes said it herself. So that lives us with Jackson, April, Lexie, Callie, Hunt, Arizona, Teddy and Callie!
I do not think it's going to be Callie, Hunt or Callie! I was thinking Jackson ( that would kill me) or April (I won't care that much, I'd shed a tear but I could live with it). But then I'm thinking Lexie's storyline this season was practically similar to Georges before he died : nonexistent! I mean me almost never saw unless she was babysitting and almost forgot about her until she came back to tell Mark she loved him! The more I think about I really think it's going to be her! OMG whhy do they have to do this to us every season? Oh wait i just thought about Bailey's boyfriend! But who would care about him anyway? I mean he's hot but we could get over it!

There is a clip showing the first 7 minutes of the episode out on YouTube. I saw it from someones Twitter feed. Derek ISN'T going to die, but he is going to have to jeopardize his future as a surgeon to escape the plane wreckage. Mark, Meredith and Christina are all as well as someone could be after a plane crash. Lexie is in bad shape, just as the promos show, and Arizona appears to have serious leg injuries which she could bleed out from. They didn't show any scenes at SGMW just the crash site. They could be directing the episode to the plane crash so someone dying back in Seattle really hits you from behind. All your energy will be in Lexie and you won't see someone at home collapsing from an undiscovered ailment until it is too late and they are gone....

After reading ALL of your comments and thoughts, my opinion is HUNT.
Maybe someone not so important like April or the pilot of the plane will die too so we think that was the death of the episode and then, when you least expect him... BAM! Someone really dear dies.
My thoughts: HUNT. That would be very unpredictable and would affect a lot of people: Obviously Christina and therefore Mer, Tedy, someone else would need to step up as chief, etc. Also, I think that we are all waiting for their situation to get clear (is Christina leaving him or not?) That would be a very unfortunate but unpredictable death. I hope it doesn't happen, I am madly in love with him.
Also, just thinking about the most unpredictable death apart from HUNT would be Miranda Baily - God, I really hope that doesn't happen!
What do you think about it?

Derek did sign on for another 2 years. He will be in the show as long as it's on the air for the next 2 year's. Looks like in the preview its either Lexie or Arizona. I would like to see Lexie and Mark get together.

I still don't get why they all got on the same plane, in that combination!
Anyway I'm going to put money on either Lexie or Arizona dying. Honestly Lexie has had a dead role for the whole season-almost really just on the sidelines muddlng about feelings w Mark. Arizona is pregnant in real life, and gives plenty of opportunity for Karev to stay in Seattle. Derek might be comatose so they can slow his character down in time for when he wants to quit the show, instead of kill him off. So Mark becomes full parent with Callie, and if Lexie survives, they obviously get together n he gets the life he wants.

I hate to break the news but it's going to be derek, Demsey did not sign the new contract to be on the show for this next coming season, I knew they were going to either have him killed off the show or move away, but I didn't expect this dramatic ending to his career as a neuro god on Greys Anad!

Lexie sure looks dead in the promo.
I would miss Arizona the least.
