Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Recap: Everything You Need To Remember Before The Season 14 Premiere

What you need to know before Grey's Anatomy Season 14 premieres!

Grey's Anatomy Season 14 returns this week and we're too freaking excited! As Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and the rest of the Grey Sloan doctors gather themselves after the explosive hospital fire and the return of Megan Hunt (Abigail Spencer), we're expecting a ton of drama and crazy storylines to emerge at the start of Season 14. But, before we watch Grey's Anatomy Season 14, we have to remember what happened in Grey's Anatomy Season 13! So, without further adieu, here is your Grey's Anatomy Season 13 recap! Enjoy!

1. Meredith Grey And Nathan Riggs Finally Hooked Up

After finding out that her half-sister, Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), also had a crush on the same guy, Meredith Grey chose against hooking up Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson) again. Later in the season, Riggs made Meredith realize that she was afraid of being with him because of her love for her dead husband, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). The two joined the Mile High Club and seemed to be headed towards Couplesville, but Riggs' ex-fiance's sudden return flipped things around. Meredith chose to let him go at the end of Season 13.

2. Maggie Pierce And Jackson Avery "Flirted"

Maggie Pierce and Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) seemed to be getting along as he helped her cope with Maggie's mother's death and illness. In the Grey's Anatomy Season 13 finale, we find out that Jackson actually might have a crush on Maggie (according to April, at least).

3. Japril The Sequel Happened In Montana

Even though Maggie and Jackson seem to be a thing as of Season 13, fans cannot forget that Jackson and April Kepner (Sarah Drew) hooked up in Montana. However, neither party has spoken of it since. Now, with #Jaggie emerging out of nowhere, we're not sure #Japril will ever be addressed.

4. Owen Hunt & Amelia Shepherd Are The New Owen Hunt & Cristina Yang

Guess who married someone without finding out whether or not they wanted kids first? Yup! Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) married Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone). Owen found out that Amelia does not want to have kids. Owen and Amelia got in a fight. Sound familiar? It happened with Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), too. The two seemed to reunite for Owen's sister's arrival. But, we aren't exactly sure what their relationship status is as of now.

5. Eliza Minnick Was The WORST

Basically, all you need to know about Eliza Minnick (Marika DomiƄczyk **) was that she was the worst. She tried to oust Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) and she even forgot that Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton**) was missing during the Grey Sloan Memorial fire. She was the worst.

6. Alex Karev Beat Up Andrew DeLuca

At the end of Season 12, we saw Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) punch the living hell out of Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). DeLuca almost died and pulled out a lawsuit against Karev. DeLuca ultimately dropped the charges and Karev didn't go to jail.

7. And DeLuca Has A Crush On Jo Wilson

DeLuca also has a huge crush on Alex's girl, Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington). Alex and Jo broke up after she turned down his proposal, but after what happened with DeLuca, the two stopped talking. So, when Jo and Alex supported each other afterwards, DeLuca definitely found comfort in Jo.

8. Plus Jo Isn't Even Jo

So, we found out that Jo isn't even Jo. Her name is Brooke Stadler and she has been running away from her abusive husband, Paul Stadler (Matthew Morrison) for some time now. That is why she couldn't marry Alex.

Alex also tracked Paul down and briefly met him at a medical conference. Although the two didn't actually interact much, spoilers say that we haven't seen the last of him.

9. Stephanie Edwards Quit

As we mentioned before, poor Edwards was left to handle a rapist by herself. Yes, she was the one who started the fire in Grey Sloan in the Season 13 finale, but she also set the rapist on fire to save herself and a little girl. Talk about badass! Unfortunately, that is also the last time we are seeing Edwards, since Hinton is moving on to a new show on HBO.

10. Owen Hunt's Missing Sister (Megan Hunt) Is Back

After teasing her arrival, it looks like Megan is back! Megan was missing for ten years and we don't know exactly what happened to her or what state she is in now. But, Owen is definitely feeling the guilt, as his PTSD symptoms were seen coming back in Season 13 as well.
