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!

Maybe Izzie will come back to tell Alex that she is dying then she dies and everyone else is safe and they all live happily ever after :) ... If only it was that simple

i dont think its going to be lexie because in an interview with chyler leigh (lexie) she was talking about the possibility of mer and der leaving, but said that her character could continue the "grey" name because she was signed on for multiple seasons. since this was only a few months ago im pretty positive its not her. i think its gonna be april. like everyone survives the plane crash and they come back and find out april killed herself or something.

I don't think its anyone on the plane. If Shonda says it will be unpredictable, then it won't be anyone who was involved in the accident. Personally, I think it will be April. When she marched outside of the bar after taking three shots, the first thought I had was that she was going to try to drive and get into an accident. Trust Shonda to pull a fast one by drawing our attention to a huge tragedy but the person actually dying in a car accident in a side story. Plus, what does April have to offer to the storyline besides a romance with Jackson? She is not coming back to Seattle Grace (unless someone else dies then perhaps they will have the funding to accept her). I think Shonda was setting her character up to be killed off.

@ kristen--
they're all on a plane to go do a major surgery to separate conjoined twins. The plane crash is very real unfortunately.

storyline for Jackson (grieving over Lexie), Mark (grieving), Callie (Arizona is hurt and stuff),
Meredith, Derek, and Karev. I will be really surprised if she doesn't kill off Lexie. It's a really good move on her part if she does, in my opinion. If she kills off Mark, it would just make absolutely no sense. I mean...that'd be random. If she kills off April (via suicide), that would be interesting, but it really wouldn't affect too many people. If she kills Arizona off, it's also kind of pointless. It affects Callie, Mark, Karev...but there's not much of a storyline there, and that's only three people. Plus Shonda is totally in love with Calzona.

You know, I THOUGHT it was going to be Arizona (and I almost cried), but now I think it's going to be Lexie who dies and Arizona and Derek who are badly injured. If Lexie dies, it affects Meredith, Derek, Mark, and Jackson. If Meredith is affected, so is Cristina, which means that Cristina might stay in Seattle for Meredith. With Derek badly injured, he cannot accept the position at Harvard and therefore is stuck at Seattle Grace, so Meredith stays there with him. With Arizona recovering from her injuries, Karev will feel really guilty about Arizona taking his place on the plane (since he accepted Hopkins's job offer). That guilt will lead him to accept the job at Seattle Grace because he feels guilty that Arizona almost died. Actually, it's a weird kind of perfect. Lexie dying is tragic, she is loved among many fans, and her last moment with Mark before she dies will probably be very bittersweet with him telling her he loves her too. And it's perfect because it sets up a storyline for Meredith, Alex, Derek, Callie (with Arizona all hurt and stuff), Mark (grieving), etc.

There is no plane crash!! This is a dream - probably Mer's all the way back to the boards when she was sick .....everything from then on has been a dream. Did you notice that as Mer and Christine were leaving the hospital (wearing matching jackets) they told each other which hospitals they had decided to go to. Like it was no big deal. It would never have happened that way!! Then the next thing that happens is they are all on a plane. Why? Where are they all going? Why are they all wearing scrubs? Why are they on a private plane? Don't you think they would have gone home and packed their things and changed their clothes? Why are they all going to the same place? Anyway....things to consider....:)

From the 3rd promo, it seems it's really someone from the plan that dies ? But then I'm surprised, cause Shonda said it would be really surprising and unpredictable. Then it can't be Arizona or Lexie ? Who else can it be ? Mark ?
