We can’t believe we’re writing this, but DeLuca got fired during the May 9 episode of Grey’s Anatomy — after he took the blame for Meredith’s act of insurance fraud. But before we get to that, let’s start from the beginning. First off, Jo finally opened up about Pittsburgh, telling Meredith that she’s the product of rape and she can’t stand looking at herself since she looks like her father (the rapist). Fortunately, Meredith was able to convince Jo to ask for a “proper leave of absence” so she could have some time to seek the treatment she needs. However, they only got as far as arriving at the hospital before Meredith realized Bailey and Catherine were having a serious meeting.
As viewers — and Meredith — later found out, Bailey and Catherine were alerted by the hospital’s insurance company that someone (Meredith) had committed fraud to help a patient without insurance receive medical care. When DeLuca realized what was going on, he took the blame for it and said Meredith had no idea what he had done. So he got cut from the program and could be heading to jail, as he was last seen on his way to report himself to the police. Meredith, on the other hand, couldn’t really do anything to protect him because she was in a hyperbaric chamber with Alex, tending to his patient, Gus. (Meredith went to find Alex after arriving at the hospital with Jo.)
Meanwhile, Teddy admitted that she loves Owen, but he doesn’t know it yet. She actually told Amelia, who was at Owen’s house babysitting Leo. Teddy went there to confess her feelings to Owen, but since he wasn’t there, she spilled her guts to Amelia instead. And after just a matter of minutes, her water broke, so she’s now in labor.
And speaking of Owen, he may not make it to the baby’s birth because in the last seconds of the episode, he, Levi and a patient (Gus’ blood donor) got into a really bad car accident.
