Grey's Anatomy Season Finale Spoilers: Superstorm Warning!

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy's Season 9 finale has a date, a title and a foreboding synopsis.

It certainly seems fitting, in a sense, that following the severe weather events that have struck the U.S. in recent years, a natural disaster is heading straight for Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

It also seems fitting because this is what Grey's Anatomy does in its finales.

After several cryptic tweets from showrunner Shonda Rhimes, sources close to the ABC medical drama confirm that the Grey's Anatomy Season 9 finale will feature a superstorm, a la Sandy.

The natural disaster will begin in the penultimate episode of the season, "Readiness Is All," on May 9, with the system arriving with full force in the May 16 finale, titled (what else) "Perfect Storm."

The superstorm will affect the newly renamed hospital and "cause its staff to go into crisis mode in an hour that is being described as very intense with a lot of "major" things changing for the characters.

Shonda Rhimes says the writing staff made some "very bold [and] shocking decisions" after "very intense discussions ... I warned you about the GA finale so you could brace yourself. Hug a friend."

Gulp.

The Season 9 finale disaster comes after a season that began with the loss of Lexie and Mark, followed by uphill battles as the crash survivors battled PTSD, lost limbs, financial crises and loved ones.

Previous finales have included the appearance of Addison, Denny's death, Cristina calling off her wedding, George's bus crash, a shooter loose in the hospital and other emotional devastation.

Excited for what might transpire in the Grey's Anatomy Season 9 finale? What, if any casualties will the superstorm bring? Share your comments and predictions with us in the comments below!

I thought they weren't going to do another disaster-type episode for the finale?
The storm should be symbolic of something.
Yes, there should be drama and some positive changes too.
But enough with the cast deaths because they've been doing that too often.
I also liked the season 4 finale a lot.
It's a big cast and they will have a couple of stories to juggle by then.

Cristina didn't call over her wedding. Preston Burke walked out of the ceremony just before she could walk up the aisle.

I don't think anyone of the cast will die. I think the season finale will be more like seasons 2,4 and 7 (which are my some of my favorites), with patients dying and emotional turmoil. Personally my favorite was season 4. Lots of emotions from the clinical trial and the moments we had been waiting for 4 years with Mer and Der. It'll probably be Mer giving birth with the baby in distress (she just can't have a normal pregnancy with Shonda). They probably planned on having Addison come over for this one. And Owen will adopt Ethan, Christina will leave him (at least for now)... Anyways, those are my guesses!
