'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Meredith & Derek Lose Zola! Plus, Henry Dies

The court decides not to give baby Zola back to Meredith and Derek. Meanwhile, Teddy, Owen and Richard trick Cristina into unknowingly operating on Henry and he dies!

Something actually happened on the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy!

Not just one thing, but three huge things took place at Seattle Grace Mercy West and its surrounding areas, which means it must be November sweeps!

1. Zola is gone! Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are informed by mean social worker Janet that Zola will be placed with another family. Both of them, as well as Alex (Justin Chambers), blame themselves.

2. Henry dies! After spitting up blood last week, Henry (Scott Foley) needs surgery. Teddy (Kim Raver) wants Cristina (Sandra Oh) to operate on her husband, but she doesn’t want Cristina to know it’s Henry undergoing the procedure. You can tell where this is going.  He dies on the table, and Cristina is furious when she finds out that Owen (Kevin McKidd), Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) kept his identity a secret. (As a side note, I’m glad he’s dead. The Teddy-Henry dynamic reeked of Denny-Izzy.)

3. Alex & Meredith get hit by a car! On their way back from picking up a premature infant in what must have been Deliverance country, the ambulance they are riding in breaks down. And apparently, Oxygen tanks, a small mountain road and rain make for dangerous conditions for the doctors and their patient. Lo and behold, another car hits them — killing three people. But since it is TV land, Alex and Mer are fine, and so is the infant. For now.

At the end of the hour, Teddy still didn’t know that Henry died — she was operating on a patient whose surgery was botched by Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Jackson (Jesse Williams) — and Alex and Meredith are still stuck in the mountains with three dead bodies and a baby that needs major medical care.

What did you think of the episode, HollywoodLifers?
