It has been a long road for Meredith Grey. She climbed the professional ranks, starting as an intern with four other close friends, and now she's a world-renowned, innovative surgeon and Chief of General Surgery well on her way to receiving a Harper Avery. It's just her and Alex remaining, but the MAGIC is still there.
Alex considers showing off all of his double-dutch experience from all his time he spends playing with Zola, but it looks like the guys are too engrossed in something infinitely more interesting to pay attention to him. Sorry, Alex.
This is clearly a reaction to when the punchline of the joke is made, right? Look at Owen. He's super reactionary now that he's in a better place in his life. Maybe Jackson is telling them about his awkward dinner with Maggie.
MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore." DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over." MEREDITH: "Finally." DEREK: "Yeah, it's done." MEREDITH: "It is done."
