On Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh), who was training future doctors, was attacked by people who were against abortion. On Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, abortion care was again at the center of the story.
Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) went back to the hospital, but it wasn’t all reunions and red hair. And it’s scary that many lives are now in balance. After Roe v. Wade was overturned, Addison went to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to help teach a new group of trainees from states where abortions were illegal.
She and the other doctors, like Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), found a group of people protesting the right to have abortions outside the hospital. When the hospital’s security told her to close the clinic, Miranda called the new chief, Teddy Altman (Kim Raver). He told security to call for help and keep trying to keep the protesters away.
But they kept getting more and more people, and eventually, they started acting violently. A brick was thrown through a clinic window and hit Benson “Blue” Kwan in the head. This was played by Harry Shum Jr. One trainee felt bad about letting the protesters know where Addison was because she had told them.
(The doctor from “Private Practice” was known for going to states where abortions were illegal in a mobile clinic to help people.) The trainee told Blue, “I’m so, so sorry.” “I’m pretty sure you didn’t throw it,” he said. But when she showed him her social media post about working with Addison, he said that she gave protesters “a map” to the hospital.
The trainee felt bad about quitting, so she told Dr. Mika Yasuda (Midori Francis) that she was thinking about it. Dr. Yasuda told her to keep going because there wouldn’t be as many doctors to help if she quit. Miranda also told the trainees to keep up their strength, saying, “As doctors and advocates for women and reproductive freedom, we are having a hard time… We need to help one another.”
Addison was still upset about the backlash to her medical care, and she said that after being attacked, she now wears a bulletproof vest. She told Bailey, “I’m not going to quit, because these patients need care.” A woman who was six weeks pregnant and wanted an abortion met with Mika and Dr. Jules Millin (Adelaide Kane).
But the protesters bothered her, and she asked, “Is that going to go on all day?” As the patient got ready to take a pill for the abortion, she talked about why she wasn’t ready to be a mom and admitted that she is still “working through the lasting damage” from her relationship with her own mother.
Andrea, the patient’s friend who was at the hospital to help her, went into labor, but she didn’t want to give birth in these conditions. “Please don’t make me push,” she begged. Andrea was upset, so Miranda came over and sang “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” which calmed her down enough for her to finally push.
When Addison heard that Andrea was having a girl, she looked at Blue and said, “She is about to be welcomed by about 100 women and you.” As the protesters left the area in front of the hospital, Richard Webber, played by James Pickens Jr., told Chief Teddy Altman that he had “kept everyone safe.”
But when the group left the clinic, tragedy struck. When Addison stopped in the middle of the street to help one of the trainees pick up some dropped papers, a car ran over them, shocking the other doctors. We don’t know if Addison or the trainee will live or die.
Nick Marsh (Scott Speedman) and Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) also helped a woman named Jessica who had pulmonary fibrosis and needed a lung transplant. Her boyfriend offered to give her one of his lungs, but he was late for the surgery and couldn’t help.
Nick also told Maggie that he is worried about his future with Meredith Grey as they got ready for the transplant (Ellen Pompeo). But she told him not to give up hope, saying, “You care for her. Don’t stop trying.” Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) stepped right into his job as Chief of Trauma and helped Ryan Jenkins, also known as R.J.
who was hurt in a car accident and had blunt-force trauma to the chest. He knew right away that R.J. was Jessica’s boyfriend. Because of the accident, he could no longer donate his lung that day, but Jessica only cared about keeping him alive.
“Please save him, do whatever it takes,” she begged the doctors. After telling him that he “just needs to be okay,” she told him about their first kiss, which happened in front of Lucas Adams (Niko Terho) and Simone Griffin (Alexis Floyd). “I had never been kissed like that before.
It instantly changed my life, “Simone ran out of the room as she seemed to be overcome by thoughts of the kisses she had with Lucas. She then decided it was time to move up her wedding date. She told her fiance Trey (Will Martinez) that they should get married next month. He agreed and said, “I’ll be your husband that much sooner.”
