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

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!

When Shonda said "it" was going to be "unexpected and shocking", was she referring to the actual death, or just the situation as a whole? Though many people already called it on the plane crash, so it's not "unexpected and shocking" to them. Shonda can exaggerate things and play word games, she may not have been referring to the death itself after all, when I go back and read it. Lexie's death isn't going to be "unexpected" by the look of the promos, just peeve the Slexie fans off if she does die. Mark would be more unexpected. Ausiello said he was "safe", but unless he's actually watched the finale and knows for certain that Eric Dane hasn't gotten out of his contract... All I know is, I don't want Lexie or Mark to die, I do NOT think that either of their deaths are "necessary". That should be Teddy/Jackson/April, or even poor former Chief Webber.


I'm sure it's not Lexie, or even Arizona. Come on, the promo videos are made just to make us think something that is not gonna happen. Shonda said it'd be surprising, that'd be way too expected after such a promo to have Lexie or Arizona dying. And I'm quite sure it's something else than we have talked about here.


I am so excited for the finale and really hope that Arizona doesn't die. I am however worried about the whole 'Shonda wrote the finale without knowing which of her stars would be returning' thing. Does this mean that Derek will stay missing and then at the start of the next season they can bring him back now he is staying? This also makes me worried for the originals on the plane. I think this finale will have another major cliffhanger, everything won't be resolved and then we will all have an even longer time to stress over it!! ;)


Lexie, Please don't die!!!


IF (and is repeat, IF) it is any one on the plane (because Shonda is sneaky), I'm leaning towards Lexie. Both she and Arizona would be devastating, but Arizona's death would just be heartbreaking and uncalled for; Lexie's would propel the show forward. It would create a reason for MerDer to stay in Seattle, life change for Sloan...Not to mention, writers love to kill off a character once they realize their purpose.


Did no one notice that mer asked like she had no idea what was up where they were at 8 seconds in? to me that says closed skull brain injury but i cant tell from the rest of the preview if she still exhibits symptoms or if she was just a bit confused. And in a shot at 5 seconds in, damn near the same on as the one at 16 seconds has chirstina mark and mar in it it must be were lexi is trapped and at 16 the only reason christina would hug mark is if lexi dies. so for me it is up in the air between Meredith and lexi, i do understand those who have pointed out aprils sad disposition but the hugely religious girl that she is would under no circumstance sink to killing her self


Humans are a trip. Can't wait til 12-21-12. A new beginning!


Looking at th new promo it says 8 went down and one want survive we have Mer Derick lexie mark arizona and Christina that's only six people and the piolet. Did someone else get on the plane?


I'll be someone doesn't get out much. lol


Wow someone sounds a bit homophobic I think people shodnt have to hide who they are and if you have these views about a tv lesbian couple how are you with real life people who are bi gay and lesbian??? I just think the lesbian comments show how narrow minded people still are
