Worst. Timing. Ever. [SPOILER] proposed on the Nov. 19 winter finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and it was just as this person was getting dumped. Plus, we finally learned about the connection between Owen and Riggs, and Jackson confronted April after their maybe breakup sex.
As a massive fire sent injured firefighters, including Owen’s mom’s boyfriend, to the ER on the Nov. 19 winter finale of Grey’s Anatomy, it was the relationships of our favorite characters that ended up badly burned by the end of the hour.
So the biggest moment of all — Alex (Justin Chambers) proposed to Jo (Camilla Luddington) just as she was dumping him. Why? Because he was acting cagey with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and constantly shut her out of conversations. Jo said she wants to have someone in her corner at all times, but little did she know that they were trying to have conversations about the engagement ring be bought her. Unfortunately, Jo didn’t give Alex an answer before the episode ended, and we’ll have to wait until the show returns in February to see if she says yes.
Meanwhile, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) tried really hard to help Owen (Kevin McKidd) with his issue with Riggs, but the guy just wouldn’t open up to her. In fact, he shot her down pretty hard and told her to stop trying. Even Meredith gave Amelia a hard time, telling her she’s not her sister. But somehow Cristina (Sandra Oh), who lives halfway across the world, is… Anyway, they got into a pretty epic fight, where Amelia told Meredith she’s hollow and enjoys playing the “widow card” a little too much. Then, Meredith told her to move out of the house, and she seemed okay with that until she ended up at a bar with Riggs, where she ordered a vodka tonic. Considering she’s an addict, this can’t be good.
And then there was Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew), who had hot steamy sex at the end of last week’s episode. Jackson desperately tried to have a talk with April this wek, but she consistently avoided him, as she was afraid he would say their relationship is over. She wanted her last memory of them not to be them fighting, but instead, them having “amazing” sex. Whether or not their tumble in the sheets will be considered breakup sex, however, is still up for debate. Jackson told April she has no idea what he’s about to say, and neither do we. Unfortunately, we won’t know until February.
But something we did find out is that Owen had a sister (“had” being the key word). And it seems like Riggs was married to her because he totally called Owen’s mom “ma” before our favorite red headed doctor punched him in the face — twice!
Also, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) flirted with a female firefighter with a burned butt, but unfortunately, she already had a girlfriend.
So much happened on the winter finale of Grey’s Anatomy, but there’s also so much more that needs to be explained. So until next time…
