Grey's Anatomy Season 11: Best Kiss, Worst Death & More!

at .  Updated at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 brought us the most horrible, shocking death yet, but it also offered a lot of great moments.

Much of the season returned to its core, allowing us to see Meredith deal with new struggles and shine as a surgeon.

Read on for the best episode, biggest shock, most romantic moment, and more.

1. Best Episode

Best Episode
On Season 11 Episode 14, titled "The Distance," it's finally time for Amelia to take on the impossible in this episode and try to remove Dr. Herman's tumor. It not only offered an opportunity for all of the other surgeons to come together as they gathered to watch, but it also let Amelia shine as a mentor. The surgery places Amelia very obviously in the shoes of Derek, as she stands there with the clock ticking, trying to decide where to start. Even Richard says he's seen Derek in exactly that position before.

2. Episode That Made Us Want to Punch the Television Set

Episode That Made Us Want to Punch the Television Set
Season 11 Episode 22, the episode that followed the death of Derek, was an utter disappointment. At least if we were going to lose such a key character, more time should have been spent on the way each character dealt with it. The massive time jump was too much, and there were too many missed opportunities.

3. Best Kiss

Best Kiss
Amelia shows up to visit Owen, but finds herself embarrassed and starts to walk away. He stops her and says, "I'm going to kiss you now, so don't say anything," before they have the most memorable kiss of the season. #Omelia for the win!

4. Most Underutilized Character

Most Underutilized Character
Alex Karev. While it was nice to see Alex's character continue to evolve as the guy who supports his friends and actually gives some pretty decent advice, we simply didn't get enough of him this season. And by extension, we didn't get a chance to see more of his relationship with Jo, either.

5. Worst New Character

Worst New Character
Maggie has potential, but she hasn't won us over yet. It's hard enough to handle the fact that Meredith has another new-found sister she never knew about, but she's also not a character we're ready to love.

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.

Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.

Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
