No gunman will shoot up Seattle this year, but Shonda Rhimes has promised that there will be major emotional damage on next week's Grey's Anatomy season finale.
It will also focus on three characters - all originals.
In May 19's "Unaccompanied Minor," news of Meredith's dishonesty in the clinical trial comes to light, leading to unanticipated consequences for her and others.
Meanwhile, Cristina finds herself in a compromising situation forcing her to decide between her career and her relationship, Owen posts his decision for chief resident and Teddy makes a surprising choice regarding her love life and her future.
What these decisions and consequences are - and how Alex fits in - remain to be seen, but we should know more after tomorrow night's episode (see sneak peeks).
