We knew Meredith and Riggs’ secret romance was going to upset Maggie when she eventually found out about it, but we had no idea how heartbroken she would be. When Maggie finally learned the truth on the April 27 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ she broke down in tears and looked absolutely crushed. Read our recap below!
Poor Maggie. First her mom died, and then, she was left heartbroken all over again on the April 27 episode of Grey’s Anatomy, when she finally found out about Meredith and Riggs’ secret romance. Following their epic rescue on that crazy flight two weeks ago, Meredith and Riggs were celebrated by the media, and it was during a press conference that Maggie noticed their chemistry with each other. The second Riggs put his hand on Meredith’s back and rubbed it ever so gently, she had an aha moment! And after that, everything just unraveled.
After the press conference, Maggie ignored all of Meredith’s phone calls, but when they came face-to-face in the cafeteria, Maggie made jokes about Meredith’s “hookup” with Riggs. “Did you two join the mile high club?” she asked. Meredith suggested they talk about it like adults, but Maggie refused until they were trapped in the supply closet together. And that’s when she learned that Meredith and Riggs had a thing way before Owen and Amelia’s wedding. It was an emotional moment — one that left both Maggie and Meredith in tears. Meredith didn’t want to hurt Maggie, but it was too late for that — as Maggie exited the supply closet, she said, “you were all I had left.”
Fortunately, things turned around at the end of the episode when Meredith pushed Maggie to go out with her and Amelia for drinks. She hesitated at first, but Meredith insisted she’s not going to let any guy come between her and her sister. So does that mean she’s going to dump Riggs? Hmm…
Elsewhere, Bailey and April worked on getting Richard and Catherine back together. April worked on Richard, and Bailey tried convincing Catherine to talk to her husband. Neither did a very good job until Bailey realized she’s just like Catherine (thanks to April), so she knew just the right words to say to convince her to finally apologize to Richard. And that she did.
Also — an old patient of Alex’s returned to the hospital with a high-risk pregnancy.
