After months of going back and forth between DeLuca and Link, Meredith finally locked lips with one of her suitors. Which guy was it? Read our recap!
The Feb. 7 episode of Grey’s Anatomy featured a number of holidays, as the episode spanned across nearly two months between Christmas Eve and Valentine’s Day. And it ended with a magical wedding under the stars, but before we get to that let’s start from the beginning. The episode started with Meredith’s patient waking up from her 35-day coma. And since her fiance had been waiting for her to wake up, it made everyone feel mushy about love. Unfortunately for DeLuca, the situation didn’t work in his favor — at least, not right away. While DeLuca continued to pursue her, Meredith did everything she could to dodge him. She even planned a date with him at Alex and Jo’s New Year’s Eve party, but never showed and blamed it on a patient. He insisted that she could have called him and even became frustrated over the games she seemed to be playing with him. So DeLuca made it clear how impatient he was becoming and told her that if she were looking for a doormat then maybe Link was more of a match for her.
And then, when DeLuca urged Meredith to make a move, she countered by asking Link out on a date — on Valentine’s Day nonetheless. But it never came into fruition. Just as Meredith was on her way to meet Link, DeLuca grabbed her and took her onto the roof of the hospital. She told him she had to go because she had a date planned, and he said she was right, but the date was now with him. They shared two cups of what we assumed was wine before locking lips and sharing a passionate kiss. And poor Link was seen sitting solo inside a restaurant after Meredith stood him up.
Meanwhile, Betty dropped a huge bomb on Owen and Amelia when they went to visit her in rehab. Apparently, Betty lied to them — not only is her real name Britney, but her parents also have no idea where she is nor that she’s a mom. She said she ran away from home when she found out she was pregnant, and she was having her friends pose as her parents on the phone whenever Owen and Amelia called them. However, even though she admitted all these truths to them, she wasn’t yet ready to come face-to-face with her real parents, so she begged Owen and Amelia not to call them. And this all happened after Owen and Teddy found out they’re expecting a girl, so it was a bittersweet episode for Owen. But Teddy’s romance with Tom took off this week, so she’s currently riding high.
Later, Bailey finally mustered up the courage to ask Ben to come back home, following a break in their marriage. He was hesitant at first, and not because he doesn’t love her. Instead, he just wanted to make sure she wasn’t inviting him home because she had become lonely. When she proved she wanted him to come home for genuine reasons, he followed suit. And they celebrated with a sexy night in the sack!
Finally, Schmidt came out to Meredith, DeLuca and Jo while in the operating room. He thought they’d freak out, but instead, they congratulated him and said they were happy for him.
As for who got married — it was none other than Meredith’s patient. Even though she woke up from her coma, she later suffered complications and was soon knocking on death’s door. She and her fiance had always wanted to get married under the stars, so after pulling her ventilator, Alex came up with the idea of bringing in a priest and having the doctors hold up with phones with stars on the screens. It was romantic and totally bittersweet.
